Friday Fill-Ins #201


Ahhhh...so stuffed with turkey I almost forgot! Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.

So...here we go!

1. Three things I must have on my Thanksgiving table: are ,ashed potatoes, cornbread dressing and green bean casserole (my deviled eggs for appetizers too).

2. The male relatives in my family tend to end up sacked out on the couch.

3. This is a year that I am thankful for more things than I can express, so thank you to all my friends, all my family and to my wonderful partner.

4. The day after Thanksgiving is the day we established to decorate the house for Christmas.

5. Oh, man, thankfully it's cold and rainy today, so we will stay home and enjoy each others company.

6. I want to perfect the art of showing how simple home-made things do mean more than expensive substitutes.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching some key NCAA Football games, tomorrow my plans include knitting with Upstairs Studio and going to the Sisters Morales show with SF, Chuck and Jana and Sunday, I want to go to a Rocket's game!

Friday Fill-Ins #200

So...here we go!

1. Why does the traffic suck on the way home? You would think that people would drive correctly so that they could get home quicker. Go figure.

2. SF really needs to get her passport so that we can make plans to see the world.

3. Thank you for being there, caring and sharing. That goes out to each and every one of my fellow bloggers and those that I call my dear friends.

4. Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday because I enjoy the cooking, the gathering of friends and family and the time to remember exactly how blessed I really am at this point in my life.

5. I am SO glad that this week is over. It has been an emotional rollercoaster, in a good way, but it has drained my energy.

6. We can be anything that we make up our minds to be.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to putting on the pj’s and chillin’, tomorrow my plans include cleaning house, going to Macy’s again for more slacks and a trip to Upstairs Studio to pick up my Third Place prize of a $50.00 gift certificate to the store (translation – I will be getting $50.00 worth of stuff to be determined) and pick up the socks and Sunday, I want to sleep in with SF and enjoy a day filled with whatever we decide to do together!

Friday Fill-Ins #199


So...here we go!

1. When pigs fly I'll begin to care what others think about my life and my choices.

2. A co-worker just told me "I think you're hot, would you like to go on a date sometime?".  When I politely declined he became abusive and aggressive, seriously?!

3. Call me crazy, I would rather spend the day knitting while watching sports than spending it shopping.

4. Life is too short to knit with yucky yarn and put up with bad relationships if you know what I mean.

5. The most entertaining person in my life is my friend Dave because he is just too damn honest and you always know where you stand.

6. Over you (and you know who you are), who's next?

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a long over due celebration, tomorrow my plans include a trip to the hair dresser and tons of NCAA Football and Sunday, I want to bake and make some food in the crock pot!

Friday Fill-Ins #198

So...here we go!

1. Sometimes, a date on a "school night" is good for the relationship.

2. Creepy single guy at work hitting on me makes me mad because he assumes since he doesn't see a wedding/engagement ring that I automatically want him or need a man.  Pisses me off and that is how I feel  about the whole thing.

3. Small victories are best in my case.

4. The Six Thinking Hats method is very enlightening.

5. I keep meaning to take my leather coats to the cleaners but it hasn't happened so far and Winter is fast approaching.

6. I have not reached my weight and dress size goal ...yet.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting some much needed sleep, tomorrow my plans include attending the Lone Star Rally with SF and Sunday, I want to enjoy the day doing whatever we wake up feeling like we want to do, or not do, as the case may be!

Enjoy the weekend and don't forget to "Fall" back on Sunday!

Wordless Wednesday

I know that there are not supposed to be words, so I limit them to: Black Cherry.....40th Anniversary....can we say mid-life crisis?  And not my mid-life crisis I might add.
