Friday Fragments

Half-Past Kissin' Time

It's been a while since I joined in Friday Fragments, but decided today was the perfect day to share some fragments of this past week with all my "faithful" readers.  Yea! for Mrs. 4444 for hosting FF each week.
ONE. This past Sunday afternoon, myself and 3 others of The Formidible Women took off to one of our members lake house.  If you recall, The Formidible Women is a group of 7 women (myself included) that celebrate each other's birthday by generally going on a day trip.  This time was a bit different.  We went for an overnighter.  And, it was a bit different in that 3 of our sistas could not go, so there were just 4 of us.  But, nonetheless, we had a wonderful time.

 Beth,pictured above on the far right, wanted to fix us breakfast on Monday morning and what a treat!

 It consisted of orange scones with an orange glaze, morning pie and egg white omelets.  The morning pie was something very new to us and it is cold dish.  I took a big bite and was expecting something hot and what a surprise!  But, it was very good and I really don't know how to describe it to you, but it was just perfect with the scones and omelets.  Of course, cups and cups of coffee were enjoyed along with it.
After the delicious breakfast, we got ready, loaded up and on our way home stopped in the small town of Delhi, Louisiana.  It is so amazing to me what great shopping one can find in these type places.  All of the shops were decked out for Christmas and we thoroughly enjoyed browsing and of course, definitely left with a few items.  After all, their economy is dependent upon it! ~chuckle~

It was another fun Formidible Women outing. And, this gorgeous view certainly made it all the more enjoyable.
TWO. It has turned to all out winter here in NE Louisiana this week.  And, Rhett and Roscoe have welcomed coming inside the house for a while each evening.
Hubby started this several years ago.  We are neither one "inside dog" people.  But, I bought this comforter and they walk about 5 steps in the front door and go and lay down on it and never move.  They go straight to sleep until Hubby is ready to take them out to their kennel for the night.  As you can see from the gray whiskers, they are getting old.  They are 7 and 8 years old and that is fairly old for labs.  It was never our intention to have either of them and they both had a rough start to life, that is, until they found us.  And, let me assure you, they have quite the life here and have counted their blessings ever since we took them in. ~lucky dogs~
 THREE. As I've said before, I really "get into" doing Christmas cards.  In fact, I get rather amused at myself because I enjoy it so much.
I cannot stand a plain white envelope so I always buy either a red or green envelope to put them in.  I've been doing photo cards for the past several years and they always come with plain white envelopes.  No, just can't do that! ~wink~  Then I go to Etsy and find cute return address labels. I have everything ready to begin the "stuffing process" when the cards arrive tomorrow.  And, of course, I can only hope that the folks who receive them do more than take a glance and throw them in the trash. ~boo! hoo!~ But, regardless, I make a production out of them because I enjoy it and that's all that really matters. ~isn't it?~
 My friends, my little Clancy has just joined a wrestling team. Yes, that's right!  My little cowboy turned wrestler.  And, at his age, it's boys and girls and as you can see in the above photo, one of his first practices was with a little girl.  How funny is that?  I do know that it will give Clancy a place to get rid of a lot of that "little boy" energy.

Happy weekend!

  1. Good morning! Your women's birthday group has always sounded like fun, but this plan sounded like a particularly fun one! orange scones and tea sounds wonderful! let alone all the rest of it. And a wrestling group? Bet the kids love that! Enjoy your week-end!

  2. The lake view and the breakfast are just lovely.
    I just love getting away with my girlfriends!
    Your little guy is adorable, the wrestling must be hysterical to watch:)
    Have a blessed weekend..

  3. Love the idea of the women's group! Beautiful scenery too! Can you maybe post the recipe for the pie??

    Love that little Clancy!


  4. I love that you buy colored envelopes! That is so fun :)

  5. Your little getaway sounds like a lot of fun. we used to do that years ago with a ladies group I was part of, wonderful for relationship building.
    Cute photo of your little Clancy

  6. I still love Christmas cards too, both the sending and the receiving. Looks like a fun time with friends!

  7. I have to admit that while I don't go to as much trouble with my Christmas cards as you do, I do prefer a green or red envelope.

    How blessed you are to be a part of such a wonderful group of women.

  8. It sounds and looks like a fabulous girl's weekend together. I have a group of 12 women and we get together every month and have been doing this for about 12 years now. Love this!

    Your Clancy is the cutest! Little boys do have lots of energy, that's for sure. I can attest to that in my preschool class. :)


  9. Haven't been on a girl's weekend in a long time, but I do know how much fun they are and refreshing!

    Beautiful views too!

    We are inside dog people........although before I was married to the superhero, I wasn't a dog person at Well, I do love my dogs! We had a big yellow lab for many years and there just isn't a better dog around!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
