Friendly Fill-ins and Friday Fragments

he Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts! Here are this week's statements with the blanks:

Week 33: December 23, 2016

1. I still need to wrap presents, though I got my shipping stuff done early and had Amazon wrap them, before Christmas.

2. My favorite episode of Seinfeld is The Hamptons.

3. What I really would like for Christmas is having my whole family together for the holiday, not happening again this year.

4.  My favorite part of Christmas time is getting my tree up....this year I have 2 little trees.

These are my diningroom and livingroom trees, respectively, this is about all the decorating I will do, except for my table centerpiece and stockings.  I miss my fireplace back in the CA house. 

I have the new humidifier running and I hope to see a difference by Christmas Eve.

I use the list function on my phone for my shopping list and took it to the grocery store ...... without checking the battery.....and it expired before I finished shopping, so there will be  another grocery run before tomorrow. 

As my dogs are aging....they are both 11.....they are beginning to get grumpy with each other.  I am going to take them to get their teeth cleaned next month in case they have teeth problems.  I have them in calming collars, which I think has actually worked somewhat for them in the past, the aggressive teeth baring has slowed some.  I am going to try calming chews when they arrive in today's Amazon shipment.  I will report on the results.

And now a selection of fun......

My all time favorite Christmas Movie?

This has happened a lot during the Holidays.
A questionable Christmas sweater choice, perhaps too much to drink at the Office party? 


  1. I understand about the holidays and family. Bill has been doing over-the-road trucking for the past five+ years. I was home alone and he was stuck in his truck. This year, we are able to go visit his sister and her family. I am not sure I will remember how to act! Merry Christmas!

  2. I love that Hamptons episode too! thanks for reminding me of it! happy holidays

  3. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am sorry your family won't be together for the holidays. I wonder if there are calming collars for cats, my Sammy has been going after Brody a lot and he even peed on the bed because he was mad at me. I had forgotten about the Hamptons episode, that was a good one with the lobsters. Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. Your trees are beautiful! I'm sorry your family won't be together for Christmas. I guess I take it for granted that my family all lives so close. (I've used calming treats in the past with good results...hope they work for you too!)

  5. I hope that your dogs will be okay. I'm sorry they're being cranky with each other.

    I wish the same as your #3, but our Marine won't be here for Christmas. Maybe next year. He should be stationed stateside again by then.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

  6. Crikey, that 'sweater' is a bit much!
    Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
