Five for Friday


1. It’s Brrr! out there and that icky bad white stuff that certain people like is falling from the sky.  It’s a lovely and tropical -12C (11F) out there right now.  I know certain people that live in the land of eternal sun and warmth like seeing pics like these, so you will see more as the season progresses.  Me?  I’m already looking forward to Spring.  I have absolutely no use for this stuff after Dr. King’s birthday.

2. My Lily cat thinks right now that she’s dying from starvation and neglect.  Oh please!  Those two cats are too well fed in fact the vet says they could stand to lose some weight.  Miss Lily and Big Boy obviously think she has completely lost her mind.

3.  It’s time for a trip to Stillwater to visit the Kathe Wohlfarht store.  I need some more cones for my smokers and I haven’t bought a new smoker in a long time.  What’s a smoker?  Look here and you’ll know:  I wonder if they will think I just gave them a plug and they’ll give me something for free?

4. I’m so behind this morning with everything.  I just spent 3 hours working non-stop without a break and I’m just now getting to WP.  This work thingee is starting to interfere with my WP friends thingee.

5. No, I haven’t gotten all of my Christmas shopping done.  Yes, I sent out my Christmas cards.  Yes, Miss Lily is still messing up the tree skirt.  Isn’t my life dazzling and exciting for a south metro urbanite???

OK, I think that will close up this post for this week.  Feel free to comment and/or leave a “Howdy Do” if you so desire.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. We have a tree skirt messer upper in our house too. Vivi (Our precious chiweenie) never does anything naughty at all. Never. It’s almost bizarre how well behaved she is. But every year without fail she messes up that tree skirt every opportunity she gets. It’s hard not to laugh because it’s so out of character for her. 🙂

  2. 1. That person from the land of eternal sunshine had rain this morning which was nice, but that person wishes they had snow , but probably never will so that person needs to move but that person is a procrastinator , so will probably not move before that person dies, so I guess that person will continue to wear shorts in December till they lay her in the ground .

    2. The kitties need more exercise. Let them climb up and down the Christmas tree for the rest of the month. Oh and don’t let them drink eggnog either. By January they should weigh less.

    3. I was thinking of buying this 19 acres in Georgia. It includes deer and bear and wild boar. Can you smoke a boar? I could send one to you, but first I have to send it out to Hillbilly woman to butcher for ya cuz I don’t like the smell of blood …. Ok, bad idea, nevermind and no, I don’t think they will give you anything free for mentioning them, but then again, you never know. They might give you a refrigerator magnet or something.

    5. I’ve done very little Christmas shopping and most of what I did was online and the Christmas cards are sitting on the table waiting to be filled out and addressed, but the rate I am going, I have plenty of time because it will be next year before I get them ready, but at least next year they will be early . Maybe I will just send them in July and be done with it.
    I mopped my kitchen floor this morning, so my life is much more exciting than your.

    4. Yes, I know 4 is supposed to come before 5, but I live on the wild side. Don’t stress over the WP friend thingee. At least now, you won’t feel pressured to go to my page to read my blog that I thought about writing because here is it, right here, yes, here , on you comment section, so there, you have me out of the way.

    I love you, good night (well save the good night for later)

    Me 🙂

    1. wow! you live an exciting and dangerous life. I dunno how you do it. I’d be overwhelmed if it were me. and hillbilly woman? ugh! her ex-con husband would make me disappear in the Ozarks.

      and the cats don’t like climbing the tree. there’s nothing for Big Boy to eat so he leaves it alone. Miss just likes the skirt to lay on.

      and some redneck with a monster truck will sweep you away to be “New Ma’ to his 10 kids if you move to Georgia.

      and I thought you were moving to Idaho so you can hunt Bigfoot.

      1. I’m so confused now. I forgot I was moving to Idaho and started looking for land in Georgia. Maybe I should just give it up and move in with you. I will sleep at the foot of the bed. You won’t even know I am there, I promise 😉

  4. We have about the same amount of snow here too. No – our furnace is not fixed yet. We’ve been lighting our gas fired furnace manually for the last two days to keep from freezing. The repair man is coming today. The fellow we chose came in at half the price of the other repair man.
