Friendly Friday Fill-Ins Hop


WOW – it’s Friday already.    Well you know what that means – fill in the blanks day!    Four sentences – two from each of our co-hosts – with blanks for OUR words to go.   Easy peasy huh?   Well it’s sure a fun way to learn stuff about each other.

Here are this week’s FOUR sentences.    Mom and I split them up again this week.   If Mom is filling in with her words, the words will be in RED and if I’m filling in the blanks, my words are BLUE.


1. When I run out of syrup for my pancakes, I use jelly as a substitute.
2. I don’t understand why snow has to be so darn cold – I hate touching it with my paws!!
3. Three AM is the best time to wake up my Mom – although I’m not sure she feels that way too!
4. It seems like I’m the only one who enjoys having houseplants – David thinks plants belong outside – period.

Done!   Filling in is finished until NEXT Friday!    We expect snow on Sunday and into early Monday morning……………….keep your fingers and toes crossed it either misses us OR is just a dusting.   We’re just a tiny bit tired of snow even though we’ve only had TWO snows so far!    They just STAYED for too long!


 Hugs, Teddy

  1. I like houseplants…and now that we don’t have any kitties (who tried to east them)..we have a few.

    Sometimes I would put honey on pancakes,or even brown sugar. Lyle’s Golden Syrup is way better than regular syrup…but its hard to find in our region.

    Maybe if you wore little boots, you might be braver about taking a jaunt out into the snow…yes, sure…LOL!

    well, its almost 4 am…have you woken up your Mom yet, Teddy??

    Have a great day!!


  2. HAHA. wake you up when it’s spring! That’s a great idea. Is that somethink we kitties should be saying to our households? Sounds like a great idea…but what about FOOD?


  3. I like houseplants too but am not always successful at keeping them alive. We do have a Christmas cactus that started flowering in November and is still flowering now. It is over 70 years old! My in laws brought it with them when they bought the farm in 1955 and it was a mature plant then. It does look old and gnarly until it comes into flower, then it looks beautiful. It sits on the patio for the summer and comes back in in the autumn. I daren’t let it die!

    • We do that with our Christmas cactus too but it’s not that old – maybe four years old. That’s amazing yours is 70+ but they are hardy and once you know what they “like” and don’t “like” they are really easy to care for. We just LOVE ours!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


      • I am very lucky that ours thrives on neglect. It only gets watered when I see some leaves starting to shrivel, but they always plump up again. During it’s summer holidays outdoors we have had a couple of storms that have broken large pieces off. It seems to have been good for it though because there is a lot of new from the base.


  4. Poor Teddy, I can understand you not wanting to touch that old cold snow with your paws. And your Mom would probably you rather wait til a little later to wake her, but she loves you, so she forgives you.


  5. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers from both of you. I am sorry you don’t like the snow Teddy. Maybe your mom could get you some boots. 🙂 Tell David houseplants clean the air plus they are pretty. 🙂 Have a nice weekend. XO


  6. Good fill ins and I hear you on the cold snow on your precious paws.
    I have two houseplants (because I only have one good window for them).
    Both are succulents….which I think is French for…”Cecilia cannot drown them”. Yep I guilty of over watering
    Hugs Cecilia


  7. Your fill-ins are wonderful! Especailly the jam/jellie on the pancakes. The cats (except Jo Jo) like the snow (in moderation) and House Plants! The house used to be full of them. Dad forgot to water the ones that were here (but the Hoyas survived) We had a whole bunch in Vancouver too, but only one survived the move back to Midway. Alas, when I moved them when it was REALLY cold. We are hoping that Kozmo’s numbers will stabilize and the next visit is the last one for a while. Our vet says calving and lambing season will be starting soon and she would like to stop by and check on him (and Marv). Of course I said yes!

  8. I know the early wake up call too well. We’re moving the feeding time to 6am. Kind of a challenge for sure. We had to go slow because of changing Cashew Insulin time. Asked the Dr how to do it so didn’t hurt him. Got a covering of snow this afternoon. Big storm missing us.


  9. Our mom hasn’t had houseplants in years. Too many of Kitties Blue past and present enjoy eating them leaving them looking like leafless stalks. Not very pretty. Mom always used to have fresh flowers every week, but Lisbeth and Cooper will not stay out of them. Mom puts jam on pancakes, as she doesn’t like how soggy they get with syrup. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet


    • I’ve had cats that ate houseplants and that’s when I learned about how so many of them are poisonous. I’ve been super careful since but that was YEARS ago and none of my cats in the past 20 years have been plant eaters or are even interested in them. Thankfully!!! I like syrup on my pancakes not necessarily because of the pancakes but because we always have BACON with pancakes and the taste of bacon in syrup – oh boy!

      Hugs, Pam
