It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Friday Fragments post.
I tend to be asleep about this time most Thursday nights,
and I just don’t get around to posting in time.
But a work schedule change this week led to me being awake all day today,
and I was happy to realize that I was up at Fragging Time!
~ We have a new neighbor back in the bush! Well, she lives about two miles away from us. But back here, that’s a neighbor. Byron and I went to middle and high school with her. She messaged me on Facebook a couple of months ago telling me she was moving near us, and a few weeks ago she and her family moved into a beautiful home down the dirt road. So today, I made a batch of snickerdoodles as a “Welcome to the ‘Hood” present, and Byron sent me out the door with a package of venison sausage. I jumped on the 4-wheeler and was on my way. I ‘dropped by’ and ended up staying for over an hour! She and her family loved the cookies & sausage, and we’re both pretty excited to have a friend in the neighborhood.
~ Our pibble (pit bull), Bo, is over a year old but still 100% puppy. He’s a sweet baby
most of the time.
Earlier today he was antagonizing the cat. At one point he had her entire head in his mouth! Well, MamaKitty had enough and took a swipe at him. Her claw caught his bottom eyelid and pulled it towards her; for a moment they were both frozen in that position! But before I could even react, it came un-stuck and Bo is fine. Thank goodness! I love that furry goofball.
And he was right back to annoying the cat a few minutes later.
~ I’m going to go back to making homemade laundry soap, and this time I’m going to give fabric softener sponges a shot, too. Byron is skeptical; he wants his clothes to smell really good and fresh, and he’s not sure that homemade stuff will work as well. But I’ve convinced him that its such a money saver that it’s worth a try; if he absolutely doesn’t like it, we’ll go back to spending the money on the expensive stuff. I used to make laundry soap years ago and it’s so inexpensive and works great; I think I’ll win him over!
~ This is SO me. Mud & blood!
~ This morning, Byron wanted me to go on a 4-wheeler ride with him. It was COLD out and I was explaining to him that I cannot stand for my face to be cold. So, he gave me this:
~ I found this on Facebook and it absolutely cracked me up! Yep – I’m a NERD.
~ Lately, I am happier than I have been in quite a long time. My little heart is peaceful and content. This does not, by far, mean that life is perfect! But life is GOOD, and only getting better.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
I hope your team wins the Superbowl (I couldn’t care less about it myself)!
