Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 94

FFBadge (2)

Each Thursday, Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15andmeowing provide four fill-in statements, and on Friday we post our answers and join their  link-up to share our responses.

The fill-ins for this week are:

1. My favorite president is                       because                      .

2. This weekend, I have plans to                        .

3. I                   my                     .

4. I believe                         .

Here are my responses:

1. My favorite president is Abraham Lincoln because he was truly a man of the people, who showed great wisdom, leadership, and perseverance in very difficult times. He conducted both his public life and his personal life with integrity.

2. This weekend, I have plans to attend a play at the Globe Theater at our local college. They will be doing a performance of The Miracle Worker about Helen Keller.  I haven’t been to a play in a long, long time. Papa Bear enjoys plays as much as I do.

3. I love my new writing table that I found on Let Go and bought for $20 this week. It is long and narrow and fits perfectly in my writing room. The long part is necessary to accommodate a cushion at both ends for furkids who like to keep me company while I write. Today Tiggy and Gracie are here beside me. 

Until now I had been using a small desk that my mother had made for me when I was sixteen years old. That almost qualifies it as an antique! 🙂 I am going to refinish it and use it as my sewing machine table, and maybe start a sewing project, something I haven’t done in a long time.

4. I believe that learning to be kind to one another, and to discuss things calmly with an open mind, could solve most of the world’s problems.

Come and join in the fun at Friendly Fill-Ins!

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I had the same one for #1. 🙂 I love that you figured a place in for your kitties with your new table. You are right about #4. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the theatre.XO

  2. I love that you have a writing room and that your table has cushions for the furry assistants. Totally agree with #4. Hope you enjoy seeing the Miracle Worker – I’d love to see that live.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. I am sorry you missed the play. I hope you get to attend the next good one! Being a native Illinoisian, Lincoln is popular here. He was a great man. My choice was another great Illinoisian: Reagan. I am glad you now have time to sew. I hope that you do it! You could make all kinds of thing, even cat toys & beds. #4: kindness. Always. Thanks for being part of Sparks and promoting kindness.
