Friday Fill-Ins #93

  1. One of the best concerts/plays/movies I ever saw that I really didn’t think I’d like was [no answer]. I don’t really have any answers for this. I don’t go to concerts, plays, or movies that I don’t think I’ll like, unless wants to go, and then I’ve usually still not liked them (big surprise), or even hated them (there were a few really bad ones while we were dating – now he goes by himself, or at least goes without me).
  2. Crock Pot Roast Beef (that I talked about earlier in the week from “Use Real Butter” by Jen) is a recipe I recently made (or meal I recently ordered) that was delicious!
  3. It’s time for a nap, don’t you think? Or Daylight’s Savings? I’m getting tired of not seeing the sun.
  4. Getting projects done is quite refreshing.
  5. If I never hear the word phrase “oh, snap!” again, it’ll be too soon.
  6. To one side of the curving road was a bear, and on the other was a huge waterfall. (I don’t know where those answers came from, but doesn’t it sound almost nice? Not camping appropriate, but I do love waterfalls.)
  7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to hopefully going to JoAnns and Michaels, assuming I get my homework done too, tomorrow my plans include homework, the post office, and some crafting and Sunday, I want to bake (wishful thinking though)!

  4. Add ingredients, mix it all together and voila! You have meatballs (a la yesterday)!
  5. If I had a yard with a garden, I would love to grow everything – strawberries and peppers and squash and carrots and potatoes and cucumbers and herbs and lettuce and some flowers for good measure.
  6. Sleeping is best au naturel (but too many years of living with roommates and cats that open doors at will have broken me of this habit).
  7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a night at home alone, tomorrow my plans include fixing up the garage and Sunday, I want to feel well rested, and do some baking!

Friday Fill-Ins #69

  1. When I fell in love and finally realized it, I shared it with the person who’d told me months ago that he loved me (patient man that he is, stuck around and waited for me to figure out what he already knew)!
  2. June (this is Minnesota after all) is when the flowers bloom and it heats up outside!
  3. Oh no! The internet connection is down, and so are the phones! (At work, that is. We have IP phones, so if our network goes down, we basically can’t do any work at all unless we have files stored on our local machines, which we’re not supposed to do.).
  4. Paris Hilton is my BFF is the craziest tv show ever.
  5. Cheese and anything make a great meal!
  6. I want a garden.
  7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to resting my arms from painting (maybe), tomorrow my plans include painting the spare bedroom and Sunday, I want to be able to enjoy nice weather (but I don’t know if that’s in the forecast)!

Friday Fill-In #67

  1. I love springtime in Paris? Really, I don’t care, as long as “spring” doesn’t involve snow, like last night and this coming weekend here in Minnesota!
  2. Biscuits and Gravy are foods I love to eat for breakfast. But I don’t, because who has the time, and it’s way too fattening. Maybe once or twice a year. Yum!
  3. It seems I’m always searching for my glasses, my keys, my phone, my iPod….
  4. Sex is a great way to end the day. TMI?

  5. The smell of cherry trees blossoming, and hyacinth reminds me so much of springtime!
  6. Last night we went to CVS and bought some Zyrtec and some Claritin in an attempt to find what works best for my itching reaction to soaps and lotions, and that made it all better.

  3. Spring should be here already, don’t you think?
  4. Oh no! I forgot to turn on the oven! (Since moving, I have not adjusted well to the fact that our electric oven requires me to turn not one but two knobs, one to the degrees and the other to “Bake.”  I frequently set the degrees and walk away, only to find my oven has not heated up at all.)
  5. I’ve recently started nothing – I have no time to start new things, and in fact have stopped doing “old” things that I love, like knitting and, um, homework, all in the name of getting our house ready to sell.
  6. Cookies never fail(s) to make me smile.
  7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to buying fabric for the rollerblinds, tomorrow my plans include getting a storage unit, dance class, and moving lots of boxes and Sunday, I want to not hurt too much from the moving, and get my paper finally finished!
