Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #188

I was unable to think of what I should write for yesterday’s Friendly Fill-Ins, so I am posting them today. I still had a very difficult time with these, and had to ask Sawyer for some help.

Our hosts, Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs), each selected two sentences for participants to complete. If you’d like to play along, click on the badge at the left. That will take you to Lorianne’s blog, where you can enter the link to your post.

The sentences to be completed can be found on both blogs each Thursday.

My fill-ins and Sawyer’s are in teal italics. Any explanatory information is in parentheses.

1. On New Year’s Eve, I watch the ball drop in Times Square on the television from bed, wake Dad Tom up at midnight to give him a kiss, and then I go to sleep.

2. My focus word for 2020 is mindfulness.

3. I cannot think of anything that is the best thing about starting a new year. (Being alive and reasonably sane is all I can ask for any day, week, month or year.)

4.  Sawyer: My personal goals for 2020 include having fewer seizures and getting more treats.

Caturday Art

Creating today’s art was so much easier than those fill-ins. As usual I used Painnt and Picasa.



The photo is of Calista Jo. She’s on Tom’s and my bed, which is where she spends the majority of her time.

I used the Nectarine filter from Painnt with the vivid coloring setting. The mat and frame are from Picasa.

Here’s the original photo.

Calista Jo is joining the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. If you would like to participate, the internet has dozens of free photo-editing apps.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Kitties Blue and I will be standing by tomorrow in the hopes of seeing your bright face and big smile on edition #281 of our Sunday Selfies blog hop. No volunteers yet to host, but I am certain I can bribe one of the gang with a few extra treats. See you then!
