Here are the fill-ins:

  1. __________________ is an awful ____________________.
  2. I always read __________ sections of the newspaper.
  3. Black cats _________.
  4. _________ is my favorite treat.


Here are my responses:

Death due to poverty, especially in one of the richest countries in the world, is an awful tragedy.

I always read the puzzle and comic sections of the newspaper. Well, I did back when we subscribed to the print version back home in South Carolina.

Black cats rock! They are adorable and one of ours, Drac, is a little vampire that loves biting toes!

Shrimp and cheesecake are my absolute favorite treat, but we rarely get to have those. Tonight we were testing a recipe for frosted sugar cookies and maybe those will be a new favorite. We made bats and black cats and some that would have been skulls if we hadn’t eaten them before I could frost them. I am blessed to have a hubby that is willing to make the sacrifice and taste test the goodies. 🙂

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

  1. The black cat frosted sugar cookies were awesome. So were the bats. Maybe they will make it to a video soon. I love you, my Zing!

    My last kitty and my last dog were black. I tend to go for black fur-babies.

    I’d help you test those cookies.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

    • What did you name your black furbabies?

      We’ve had a lot of black kitties over the years and a few tuxedo kitties.

      We’ve only ever had one solid black dog since we got married. His name was Bin. I was pregnant with our first baby and at home sick. Bin was apparently a stray. He was hit by a car in front of our house and that’s how he became our dog.

      I bet you’d be a great cookie tester. 🙂

      Have a blessed day and weekend! ♥


  3. Black cats rock!
    And yes, it is really sad that people still die from poverty in rich countries.
    Good to hear the cookies were a hit!
    Have a blessed week.

    • You’re welcome, Ellen, and thank you, too. I love participating in the fill-ins.
      Drac is an adorable, loving, feisty little rocket with sharp little teeth! haha
      I think that you’d be a great taste tester, too. 🙂
      Have a blessed weekend.


  5. Those are some great answers. I hope the shrimp and cheesecake aren’t mixed together. TW gets the paper mainly for the crossword puzzles.

    • Thank you, Cathy Keisha. 🙂 No, the shrimp and cheesecake are not mixed together, but that might be an interesting combination.
      I’m no good at crossword puzzles, but I love the cryptogram, or whatever it is called, and those puzzles where you have to spot the differences in the pictures, as well as word search puzzles.
      Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

    Years ago we had a couple of black cats, named Blackie & Diamond. Well, come Halloween, my daughter’s costume was as a black cat, and our cats took one look and started hissing! haha!
    Your cookies sound yummy! I used to make lots of frosted & decorated cookies for Halloween & Christmas. 🙂

    • How funny the kitties started hissing at her costume. It must have been pretty realistic.😊

      What was your favorite way to decorate the cookies? We’ll be making Christmas cookies, too.

      We’re also working with an author to develop a cookie recipe for one of his children’s books. This is going to be lots of fun.😊

      Have a blessed day, Barbara.

        Yeah, she was crawling around on the floor in her costume and meowing at the cats. Guess they thought she was being too real for them! 🙂
        I just made the old fashioned tea cake cookie recipe, and used cookie cutters for each holiday. Then just made powdered sugar icing of different colors to decorate & draw things and words on them.
        Best wishes for a successful book and recipe! ❤

        • I’m glad the kitties didn’t hurt her. You never can be sure with animals, especially around babies. My cousin’s baby girl was mauled by their cat when she was a toddler. She was about a hair’s breadth from being blinded, the claws got so close to her eyes.
          I bet your cookies were yummy and beautiful. 🙂
          Thank you. Have a blessed night, Barbara. 🙂 ❤

    Homemade cookies sound yummy. I baked bran muffins for us today. We are going to bake some Christmas cookies with our granddaughter. She’s 2 1/2 so it should be lots of fun. Have a great weekend.

    My first kitty was mostly black. He had a white chest and paws though. 🙂
