Fur Friday – Hiding in Plain Sight

Happy (First) Fur Friday!

I’m going to start a weekly Fur Friday theme to my blog. I do not have a solid idea what this will entail other than it will have something to do with our menagerie of animals. There will be a photo or two and some words, or not. It will take place on Friday because I like alteration a lot. I will also have the right to change the rules whenever and however I please.

I landed on this idea for a few reasons. One, school will be starting up again, in whatever form that may be, and I will be much busier. When life gets busy, my blogging suffers and I hope this fun Friday format will inspire me to at least stay connected when the going gets tough. Two, my camera roll is ridiculously and overwhelmingly heavy with pet pictures. Why not share the love? Three, I get a lot of my writing inspiration from visuals, photographs or visual experiences. Writing about our furry critters is easy and enjoyable, so why wouldn’t I do this?

On an unrelated note, this week marks my ninth year with this blog. I’m so glad I started blogging when Cody and Carter were little. I am not a baby book or scrapbook person. This is the one place I have more or less consistently jotted down our life moments, big and small. Currently the boys take an interest in my blog more to humor me than anything, but when they do, it is sweet to watch them step back in time to their childhood and listen to them exclaim, “Oh, I remember that…”

Whether you are a long time reader or you just popped by to see the orange cat “hiding” under the bed, thank you for being a part of my blogging experience.

Cheers and happy Friday!

  1. Fur Friday sounds good to me! I always love a kitty tail or a kitty tale! 🙂

      Good one! 😸 I thought you might like this idea, considering your fur babies. It is really silly how many pictures I have of our pets, especially James who is the only one of them who is photogenic.

    I like alliteration too! And always good to have a theme to fall back on when school gets in the way. But when you’ve got a cat called James half the work is done…

    • Shoes says:

      Yes, I think I may be able to keep the Fur Friday going at least for a couple weeks. 🙂 I may have to utilize some of your James rhyme wordage in future posts. You’ve got some good ones! A recurring theme over here would be the James rearrange.

    Blogs are the perfect place to dump animal photos. I’ve been doing it for years..
