Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

I hope I am doing this right. It may take me a couple of tries to iron out the kinks or give up! Either way, maybe I'll learn something! LOL

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Wow, I did it! That's what I like about blogging. You guys force this dog to learn new tricks. *smile*

I was going to get a lot done today. Instead I had three extra kids, so someone else could get something done. Maybe that is what being grandma is all about.

If you where going to make something disposable, what would you pick? I'll tell you what I'd pick....SOCKS! I get tried of matching up socks. I think the dryer eats about a third of them anyway!

The kids watched The Jungle Book today...not the cartoon, the other one. Which ended in a big fuss over the name of the wolf. So here is a bit of trivia for when you are faced with the same situation. Mowgli's animals friends are Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther and the wolf's name? Grey Brother.

My friend Frannie now has a Candy Cane Coiffure for Christmas ~ Bold red stripes in her blond locks! She is so cool...she is a hoot and I love her. She is in her mid 60's! What fun!

Liz Curtis Higgs asked, "If your heart is full, is okay that your mind is empty?" My vote is YES! It is that time of year.

I miss so many people this time of year! I become a sentimental blubbering basket case....then it passes and I think about all the good memories from years gone by and I am happy. Then I have to cook supper and ......oh never mind. I think holidays are an emotional drain sometimes.

I went out and cut Granny's hair tonight, so she is ready to receive her Christmas visitors in "style" now. (Granny lives across the pasture. She is 91 y/o.)

I still have about a dozen presents to make. I keep telling myself, I work better under pressure. Self is getting a good laugh.

All and all, it has been a good week. For one the temperature has slowly come back up from the teens of a few nights ago to 56 today with lots of sunshine. Secondly, Tiger Woods is no longer on Yahoo each time I check my email. And last, dh nearly has the new well house done. Life is good.

May the next few days, be ones of great joy for each of you and may your families be blessed. Remember, the most important present you can give is "presence."

Merry Christmas!


  1. Thanks for joining in this week! You did great!

    I'm a procrastinator, too. It's so reinforcing, though, when you finish a project at the last minute and it's GREAT! Still, the stress we add that way is kinda crazy.

    BTW, I checked out the t-shirts, and they're great!

    Candy cane highlights, huh? She sounds like a lot of fun :)

    I vote yes! I'd prefer a full heart and an empty head to the opposite; that's for sure.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Great fragments. I too love this meme.
