And here's my Friday Fill-ins!
Each Thursday Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15andmeowing, provide Friendly Fill-In statements. On Friday, we post our answers with a link-up for you to join us with your own responses. We hope you will copy and answer these on your blog, but please remember to link up at McGuffy’s Reader. If you need help, please let either
Annie or Ellen know and always have fun!
1. My Chinese zodiac is the horse.
Those born under the sign of the Horse are a flexible group of people. They tend to be stubborn when it comes their ideas, but they are also incredibly patient when it comes to hearing out what other people have to say. They favor straight forward, occasionally blunt conversation. And yet they generally avoid starting up any unnecessary trouble. This combination then makes those under the Horse sign a bit of a puzzle to the people around them. Though this certainly does not stop people from trying to figure them out.  
In spite of some of their misgivings, Horses are also incredibly loyal friends and partners. Perhaps it is because first impressions have a lasting effect, or simply that they are inclined to do well by others. Whatever the case for an individual, however, they are consistently there when friends need a person to turn to or a shoulder to lean on. They are also quite capable of resolving conflicts, both their own and other people's. Altogether then, those born under the sign of the Horse are some of the most favored members of society; and though they don't often aspire to greatness they tend to achieve a manner of it through the compliments and adoration of their friends.

2. My zodiac sign is Libra.
Symbolized by the Scales of Justice, Libra epitomizes balance and fairness. This sign’s influence helps restore equilibrium to all affairs, no matter how big or small. From settling a major legal or ethical conflict to determining the best place to hang a painting, Libra energy will stop at nothing to establish interpersonal and aesthetic consonance. Under a Libra planetary transit, we can regain our footing in relationships and seek more balance in our lives. The essence of Libra energy is charming, lovable, fair, sincere, sharing, beautiful and hopelessly romantic. Negative expressions of Libra energy can be vain, indecisive, melodramatic, manipulative, spoiled and delusional. Libra energy enhances our social graces and turns our attention to beauty and style. In Italy, there’s an expression known as la bella figura, in which Italian natives not only dress to impress but also exhibit their brightest, best personalities when in the company of others. Libra transits help us achieve that kind of inner and outer beauty, making us feel like the fairest of them all.
3. Income Tax season is when we see if we paid
enough up front to not have to pay more.
Usually we break even.
4. In hindsight there is no point in whining about taxes.
We're damn lucky to be living in this country.   


  1. I love Miss Lucy, but you already know that. I'm so glad I got to meet her and her peeps.

    I'm so happy you played along with Friendly Fill-ins. Make sure you go to McGuffy's Reader @ https://mcguffysreader.com/2018/02/16/friendly-fill-ins-week-93/ to link up so they know you're in the mix. Linkies are good.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday. Big hug to you and Russell and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Lucy is a sweetie! You are a Libra? Wouldn't have guessed, I am too but I am on the EVIL end of Libra...I am the cusp of Libra/Scorpio that is why I don't suffer fools gladly and I ALWAYS call em as I see em............and.......I am born the year of the sheep/goat....BAAAAAAA!!!

  3. Lucy in a sunpuddle always brings a smile to my face.

    You are so right about taxes. The fact is, i do not mind paying, it’s how the country is run. What i mind is how some of the money is spent, and having to go through so much to figure it up. Even still, we are blessed and i thank you for the reminder!

  4. Enjoy that sun Lucy. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I agree that we are lucky to live in this country :) Have a nice weekend.

  5. Lovely photo! I love these light and shadow photos.

  6. LOL they always make towards the sun and boxes oh and food of course haha! :-)

  7. Great answers to the fill ins and Lucy is absolutely gorgeous.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
