Friday’s Friendly Contributions

It’s Friday (for another forty three minutes) so it’s time for the friendly fill ins which are set by Annie at McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen at 15 and The words in purple are the prompts that are provided and then the rest is me.

1. I can’t believe people are still sold into slavery around the world. In September the United Nations put the number of modern day slaves at over forty million which is incredibly shocking.

2. I have nothing on Craigslist. (Craigslist is basically an online classified advertising site)

3. Going into December, the weather outside is chilly and it keeps trying to snow. It’s a balmy seven degrees now, at 10:45pm. The last few days haven’t been nearly as warm, with it barely getting above two. All the mountains around the area are covered with snow and the ski season started a few days ago. I’m enjoying getting out my warm clothes and I love seeing the snow, I just don’t like it when it gets all wet and grey at this time of year.

4. My current weakness is cats! (I couldn’t think what to write so asked my beloved and he straight away said cats). Technically this isn’t a current weakness, more a forever kind of weakness – I just love cats so much and in an ideal world I’d have many more. Last night we were watching a show about cats, and the presenter visited a woman who has got fifty rescue cats in her house (it was a big house), sixty rescue feral cats in the grounds around her house, and over forty cats for rehoming – it was like a little slice of cat heaven.

What’s your current weakness? Is it a food, reading, or even spending lots of time relaxing? Make sure you hop over to Annie’s blog to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with for their responses.

Until next time, be good, stay safe, and say hello to the next cat that you see.

Pamela & Ken

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. That first one is very sad. I love your answer to #4 and wish I had thought of that. I love cats too and currently have 12, at one point we had 15 which is full capacity for our home size. Have a nice weekend!


  2. OH! this was such a great read, There is indeed much enslaving going on in our world, especially with young girls being sold into sexual slavery, my heart goes out to them.My weakness is chocolate, I love anything chocolate! Thank you for visiting my blog, I apologize for taking so long in visiting you, this is such a busy time for us at the farm, our ewes are lambing, we always love Christmas lambs, such a wonderful reminder of the season we are celebrating, and my plan was to finish Christmas decorating completed by Dec. 1st, happy to say i am finished.Blessings,Sue


  3. I am sorry that I am so late. There were some unplanned things over the weekend. *sigh*Great fill-ins! I like the way you think, Pamela. I also like your genuine approach. I especially like #4!Hugs, my friend.
