Friendly Fill-Ins 4 November 2016

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Here are the fill-in-the-blanks:

1. Peace____________________________.
2. I need to ___________________________, but I keep procrastinating.
3. A friend is _______________.
4. I _________ try to ____________.

Here are my answers:

Peace would be a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, it isn't something that we'll see in this lifetime. Still, we should continue trying to achieve it. I know I'll never be six feet tall, but still I keep stretching.

I need to get a move on the de-cluttering of this house. There are just too many distractions. I'm not so much procrastinating as I am distracted. Also, I am apparently in a flare of some type and can't stand for long without intense pain in my back. That is slowing things down quite a bit.

A friend is willing to listen. A friend has your back. But, a true friend will also try to guide you back in the right direction when they see that you're headed in the wrong one.

I am going to try to blog every day for a year. This goal started on July 1 of this year and I have been successful so far. I've made it four months without missing a day so far. I am also going to continue on my quest to not let hurtful things continue to hurt me. I haven't been as successful with that one, but I am working on it.

  1. Absolutely, we need to strive for peace. God expects it.
    It seems I am forever rearranging and recycling/tossing things out. It keeps getting undone. *wink*
    Your comment on friends is so on-target! I try to do that, too. Sometimes people need to be reminded. Me, too! I am so very human. My friends forgive me.
    Good luck with blogging. I used to be able to do that, but not in quite some time. I do my best, and hope to get better...with most things.
    Thanks for being my friend, Suz. Hugs...and peace.

    1. Thank you for being my friend, too, Annie. :)

      Some things are just ongoing, forever jobs, eh? haha Maybe we'll be able to make progress on our de-cluttering projects some day.

      I hope that you are having a blessed weekend. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. {{{Hugs}}}

  2. Excellent answers! Your #2 describes me in needing to de-clutter the house.

    1. Thank you! How do you overcome the distractions? I am having a very difficult time doing that.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend. :)

  3. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am sorry your back is bothering you, I hope you feel better soon. I highly recommend a turmeric supplement, it did wonders for my back when it was bothering me from shoveling. It is a great anti-inflammatory. Good job on blogging every day and many times you do more than one post. Have a nice weekend!

    1. Thank you to you and Annie for hosting the fill-ins. :) Thank you. This has been going on for a couple of weeks now. To make matters worse, I fell earlier today. There was a wet spot in the floor that I didn't see and down I went. We will have to look for a turmeric supplement and give it a try. Thank you for that suggestion. :)

      Thanks! I am trying to do at least one a day. Sometimes, another opportunity comes along, too. I try to divide things up between the two blogs. Some things seem better suited to PS Annie! and others to McClendon Villa. Other things I cross-post on both of them. It seems to be working okay for the moment.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend!

  4. Oye, the decluttering of house never seems to end. Like shoveling snow in a blizzard. But much like reaching for Peace, I keep trying to get rid of the clutter.

    1. That's all that we can do, really, is keep trying.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great night!
