Welcome to this weeks rendition of Friday Fragments sponsored by the ever delightful Mrs. 4444's! (cue applause)
*We have had some beautiful weather this week. One afternoon my mom and my MIL and I went and sat by the water enjoying the day. We brought lunch with us. My mom pulls out one of these
wrapped in aluminum foil with water and ice in it. You get an A+ for creativeness and a C- for class. Guess who's getting you a Nalgene bottle for Christmas?
*It's official. My renters from Bulgaria are getting more mail than me. They must be stocking up on American things before they leave because they get packages every day from retail stores.
*Can sinuses explode? I have done nasal washes, nasal spray, Mucinex, Niquil, allergy medicines...anything to get them to drain. They feel so large they might give birth any day. Hopefully they don't decide to blow at one of the 2 weddings I am doing today.
*We might go apple picking this weekend. I love apple picking. (This is a go off Cape required trip. See problem below)
*There are 2 bridges to get on and off Cape Cod. The main bridge is being repaved and spruced up 24/7 for the next month and a half. That gives us one lane on and one lane off. People have been waiting in traffic for up to 3 hours waiting to get off Cape. They are going to continue for a few months in the spring too. Either I am not going to see my beloved Target (off Cape) for another month and a half or I am going to turn my car into Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
*A friend of mine who stalks my blog, but only comments to me via email or in person, sent me a forwarded email story and I had to leave you with the last paragraph....
With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think,Good gosh, look how smart I am........
Here's to all you smart cookies out there! Go treat yourself to some Ben and Jerry's!
