Friday Favorites!

20 Sep

I’m back in the southeast corner of Minnesota after Mabel and I had a sleepover last night in the cities.  I played with my friend, Sara, and Mabel played with her friend, Kimber.  A good time was had by all, canine and human alike.  Onward –

I made this.  I had a metal piece from my high school days that was used for this exact purpose – magnets and photos and reminders and quotes and all sorts of stuff.  This week I added fabric [polka dots, of course] and some spray adhesive.  I also used spray adhesive to do this to my auction lampshades.  I’ll show you the final product sometime soon.

Here are six apps for iphone and ipad for the home cook.  Why, yes, I would love to save my favorite wines to my phone … now if only I could get iOS7 to download …

Here is one of my favorite pairs [zucchini and lemon] mixed with ricotta and fettucini.  How delicious does that sound?

Did you watch New Girl and The Mindy Project this week?  They are both back with new seasons.  I’m so happy regular television is returning.  It’s like going back to school after summer vacation and seeing your friends again.  [Except my friends are fictional and on my very small television.  They are doctors and teachers and pirates and geeks and Phil Dunphy.]

When I was in education courses in college, we would talk about – when teaching – giving both examples and non-examples to help students grasp a concept.  Want a non-example of Friday favorites?  I was watering flowers this afternoon and was stung by a bee.  A bee!  A bee just came up and flew into my slipper and stung me.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been stung and I’m not sure how to feel.  Should I be angry that my ankle now throbs with the pain of a bee sting or should I feel guilty that the world has one less bee in a world that already has a struggling bee population because this bee felt compelled to inject me with its venom?  Either way, it was not my favorite.

I think that’s all I have for you today.  How are you spending your Friday night?  Doing something exciting?  I hope so.

Do you want to know what I’m doing?  Ready?

I’m writing a sermon and doing laundry.  That’s right.  It’s about to get crazy in this parsonage; I just brewed coffee – the non-decaf kind.  Look out!  I must work tonight because tomorrow is reserved for the kitchen at the Blooming Prairie Serviceman’s Club.  Hand me an ice pick and I’m going to make me some aebelskiver.  [I’m helping out jD’s church at their annual aebelskiver dinner.  I’ll be an expert at pancake balls by the end of the day.]

Happy weekending.  Please don’t kill any bees.
