Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #67


It’s Friday again. Funny how that continues to happen each week. The only way I can keep track of what day of the week we are on is by which post we have to write. Even then I occasionally get messed up. Anyhoo, if it is Friday, it must be time for fill-ins. Each week, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and Ellen (15 And Meowing) each select two sentences for us to complete.

Kitties Bue let me complete all of them this week, as they have never been to school, like the catio better than any room in the house, and have never visited any place in our area but the vet, and they surely wouldn’t recommend that to anyone.

This is a blog hop. To enter click on the fill-ins badge. You will be whisked away to Annie’s blog, where you can enter the link to your post.

My completions, as they are each week, are in teal italics.

1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to the Mill Mountain Star. You can read more about it on our posts, Sharkie & Blue Visit the Star and Come Fly with Me for Sammy.


Mill Mountain Star, Roanoke, VA.


2. My favorite room in my home is the kitchen. After waiting more than 25 years, we re-invented it about six years ago. It is where we all spend the most time.

3. Back-to-school time makes me think of how I always wanted to wear new school clothes for the first day of school, but it was always too hot. I would end up roasting in a wool skirt and sweater and regret my decision.

4. My favourite year of school was probably third grade, as that is when I discovered I liked to write. I have been doing it ever since.

Thank You from Astrid & Lisbeth

Astrid and Lisbeth would like to thank everyone who came by yesterday to wish them a happy birthday. They especially want to thank Lisbeth’s boyfriend Charles for the beautiful e-cards he sent (a separate one for each girl). He also sent a box of goodies. The girls will share about that tomorrow.

They received another gorgeous card as well. This one is from one of the Three Gingersnaps, Teddy (aka Butter Bean). It features their favorite colors.

happy Birthday. Wish you two pursue your dreams and live happily.

Fantastic fill-ins, as always! Your kitchen sounds like a wonderful place to be. Somewhere down the line I’d like to renovate my kitchen, but it seems like such an intimidating endeavor sometimes.

Growing up Southern, we all seemed to sit around the kitchen table for everything. We re-did the bathroom a few years ago…thank goodness we don’t all meet in there, now! *wink*

Thanks for joining us here. There is so much going on; I can hardly keep up. Hugs!

Happy Birthday to Lisbeth and Astrid! My dream one day is to have my own designed kitchen – with a window seat. I’m not big on cooking – but I’d love to incorporate so many other things into the kitchen too!

We enjoyed your answers! Kitchens are great…all that food!

Ellen Pilch August 18, 2017 at 2:22 pm

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. Some of The Kitties Blue have been to school-CSU 🙂 I would love to see that star. I used to do the same thing on the first day with a heavy sweater and stuff like that. I hope you have a nice weekend! XO

We enjoyed your fill ins! Our kitchen has been remodeled but our mommy still doesn’t go in there much! Our daddy is the cook in our family. She does know how to open cans of stinky goodness thank Cod!

Once I discovered reading, the writing part just naturally fell in line. I remember being in 3rd grade, and wanting to read books that were on the 5th & 6th grade level but the librarian wouldn’t let me check them out. So, I sat on the ground, pulled the books off the shelf and read them right there!

Happy BIRTHDAY beautiful girls! And coming from Roanoke…mommy said she is a Mill Mountain Star girl.

donna August 18, 2017 at 7:28 pm

I knew that was my favorite place to go when i visit my former home. The zoo is a fantastic way to spend your day too.

Teddy August 18, 2017 at 6:03 am

I do hope the girls had a grand birthday and I would guess they did indeed as they live in the KB Household where all cats are SPECIAL 24/7! My Mom had a giggle at your comment about wearing new clothes on the first day of school. She was always way more excited about her new school wardrobe than being back at school – deciding on that FIRST outfit was a huge occasion! We hope you all have a great Friday AND weekend……..

Love, Teddy and Mom too

Those are fun answers to the fill ins! We know petcretary would love a new kitchen…and maybe even a whole new house! This place we know as our den is old and not that well built…and it has way to many issues to keep up with…but still, it *is* our home!
