Friday Fragments!

Mommy's Idea

Oh, Friday Fragments, how I've missed you!!  If like me you need some fragments in your week head on over to Mrs. 4444's home (not her literal home, of course, her internet home) and check it out!

-I bought five jugs of milk the other day. As I was putting them away Mr. Ski walks in and as he curiously watches me put them in order of expiration and file some away in the freezer he tentatively asks..."Is there something you know that I don't?" Ha! Nope, except that the milk was on sale and I heard about this dairy bill that was supposed to expire and if it does then milk prices are going to go up a lot. That was on Monday...after a quick google search just now, I learned that they extended the bill which prevented the rise of milk prices. Hmph. Well, at least I won't have to buy milk for awhile.

-My mom gave me a beautiful pink scarf for my birthday (I had a streak of pink in my hair and she thought it would match perfectly. And it did!).  My mom knits so I just assumed she had knitted it; as I was showing it to a girlfriend of mine who is a beginning knitter I told her that my mom had made it.  "Wow!" she said "The girls at the salon would be jealous of how good your mom can knit!"  I know, she makes baby blankets too! As I was folding the scarf to put it back in the box I noticed a tag...Made in Thailand. Oh.  I guess that's what I get for assuming. 

-I got a new (to me) car a little over two months ago. I named her Florence. She is so pretty and once while waiting my turn at a stop light I thought she had died (she hadn't) because she is so darn quiet. I love her.

-Florence and I got rear ended last week. Ha, figures right? Just as soon as I have something updated and pretty to drive around in...BAM! I get hit! It could have been a lot worse though...there were no injuries, minor damage and the guy who hit me had insurance so they are fixing Florence and making her all pretty again! Yay! I'm pretty sure as far as accidents go I lucked out BIG TIME!

Hope you have a splendid weekend.


  1. Poor Florence - you are right it could have been worse. If you carrying all that milk and wham bam, you got spilt milk to cry over.
    Just maybe your Mom worked a quick part-time job in Thailand last year. Good to read a FF post from you. Hope my crazy comments do not discourage you from more.

  2. You have been nominated for a Liebster Award! Read more about it here:

  3. Dang I jinx it didn't I? I was just going down Mrs. 4444's blogroll and saw your blog. Yeah I think I remember that blog. Browse over and find the last post being months old and I had dropped off a very odd comment. Hope all is well with you and the family. FF posting is still going. all the best

  4. Hey, friend. Just stopping by because I'm thinking of you :) Hope you and Florence (and your hubs, of course) are doing well...
