Friday Fill-ins



1.  Finally, I cleared away the stack of papers on my desk. I've always disliked filing.


2.  Chewing each mouthful 10 times, as suggested by a nutritionist on television sure takes some getting used to.


3.  My Dad says: I hate being bored. (And at 77, he keeps himself very busy with all kinds of projects.)


4.  "Bekus" is my favorite nickname for breakfast - a leftover from our youngest child's efforts at learning to talk.


5.  It took a long time, but I'm starting to sew my own clothes again.


6.  Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, though I wouldn't have it any other way.


7.  And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching a movie at home with my husband, tomorrow my plans include a very important date with our eldest daughter and some time with our granddaughter, and on Sunday, I want to attend church, go for a long walk, read a book, and watch "Monarch of the Glen."

That's an interesting device for getting thoughts to blog. As always, I learned something new. Sounds as if you have a wonderful weekend planned. Monarch of the Glen...must check into this.

Lorrie - I so enjoyed seing all your posts. you are so creative! it must be hard to live without all your furniture but hopefully soon your home will sell. I have a perfect solution! I'll buy a lottery ticket today - win on saturday and by Sunday I'll be making an offer on your home. My dream of living on the island again will come true... I had a thought the other day that if I was ever rich enough I'd buy a place and we could spend the winters there...Have a wonderful weekend! Do you walk through Finnerty Gardens? Soon there will be lovely signs of spring there...

Interesting!

You are really sewing your own clothes again? I'm trying to recall the last item of clothing I sewed for myself. It was likely 20 years ago!

It sounds like you are in for a good weekend. Enjoy!

Yes, life is full of unexpected twists and turns, though I wouldn't mind now and then to have it any other way too. :-)

Great post.... Are you/did you watch Downton Abbey? Love that...

I'm finding some twists and turns myself, enjoying a fairly peaceful weekend though, going to enjoy some "bekus" in a while, a meal I've never eaten before under this name, and might even try to clear my desktop. . . fun post, thanks.

Some recommend chewing 70 times for good digestion!
