9 Friday Fragments ( Art, food, TV, hockey, prayer)


Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. Here we go:

Art

Yes, the public does get to go inside the reading nest!
Remember last Friday I posted this funny looking thing that I saw in the library garden and wondered what it was? Daisy was closest--it's a reading nest! A few days later, I saw there was a sign about it.

All In The Family

Actress Jean Stapleton, three time Emmy award winner for her role as wife of Archie Bunker in the TV show, "All In The Family" died last Friday of natural causes at the age of 90! I remember our whole family enjoyed watching this show together which provided us with lots of laughter. Source: L.A. Times The show ran from 1971 to April, 1979--you can actually view entire episodes on YouTube! Here is the link to the theme song.

One Tough Guy

Hoping They Win Again!
During the hockey playoffs this week, Gregory Campbell, a player on the Bruins was hit so hard by the puck that it broke his leg, but he stayed on the ice for 50 seconds to help keep the Penguins from scoring! The Bruins won the game in double overtime. The guy actually skated off with a broken leg! We wish him a speedy recovery!

National Doughnut Day

In honor of this being National Doughnut Day, Giant Eagle has a good deal on them today--I think it was $3.99 per dozen while supply lasts.

Raisins

My hubby thought raisins were a healthy snack until he saw how much sugar is in a 1/4 cup serving: 29 grams! I learned raisins were high in sugar when I had a personal trainer at Fitworks and wrote down everything I ate.

New Food

Ever heard of dim sum? I didn't until I read about it over at The Kuantan blog.

New Cereal

My husband discovered two new cereals this week that he likes: Bare Naked-chocolate delight and True Love-carrot cake, yum yum!

Grumpy Cat

Thanks to YouTube and all her fans, Grumpy Cat has a movie deal! This cat always looks grumpy, even though she is actually sweet and playful. I discovered this big news when playing "Free Kibble" this morning.

Answered Prayer

Yesterday God answered my prayer to provide me lunch in an unusual way! Will share details in my Sunday Sharing post this week. (I had my yogurt, nuts, pudding and sardines but forgot my bread!)

Our family watched All in The Family too. I loved Jean Stapleton.

I love, love, love dim sum. I've had it in China Town in San Francisco. Yummy.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I don't know if I could do the carrot cereal, I like fruit in mine :-)

Reading nest, ah ha! I meant to read that post when you emailed me, but I got busy :-( Will you be reading in the nest? I think that sounds like fun!

Yay for answered prayers!!! The lunch sounds wonderful, sans the sardines. Hubby would happily take my share ;-)

All in the Family was a show we watched too. Jean played a fabulous Edith!

I've heard of dim sum but haven't had it although I love Chinese food!

It's surprising how much sugar is in things like even fruit. I realize it's different sugar than what's in a candy bar but still. Raisins are healthier than many snack options though.

That reading nest is intriguing! Do you think you'll be doing any nesting this summer with a good book? ;)

It was so sad to hear of the passing of Jean Stapleton - that was one of my parents' favorite shows.

Holy cow! That hockey player finished with a broken leg? Crazy!!

I missed out on having a doughnut on National Doughnut day! Ah well, there's always next year! :)

It's crazy how much sugar is in things we usually consider healthy, isn't it?

Farewell to Friday for a Temporary Hiatus

A reading nest! How fun!

I don't follow sports much, but that Gregory is one tough dude!

Those two cereals sound more like ice cream flavors (I do love me some carrot cake!)

And as for Grumpy Cat - I wish I could get a movie deal just by being grumpy. Who does he know??

You were asking how I made those cartoons on my blog. I used toondoo.com. It's free. You just make a user name and password and start creating away. It's addicting!

Sandee: Wow, I think this is the first time that you mentioned actually watching a TV show. I know you don't watch anymore. If I ever see dim sum, will give it a try!

Tettelestall: I agree with you, carrot cereal does not sound good to me either--I like my Cherios, Cinnamon something (can't remember the name--having a Sr. moment here) and Raisin Bran. I tried out the reading nest, but actually prefer sitting outside in the garden better because of the view.

Beaded Tail: Sugar is everywhere, but I heard that too about the sugar in fruit being better than the other--it is my enemy and is everywhere! I liked both Edith and Archie on that show--hilarious!

Stacy: Hockey players are the toughest, I think. I can't even skate with two good legs very well--imagine the pain he must have been in! I think any hockey player would have done that though--they're all charged up in the game and adrenaline I think would keep them going through the pain. I had my doughnut--chocolate frosted with custard filling--my favorite!

Tiny Little Reveries: I looked at some of the Grumpy Cat videos and wasn't that impressed by them. The cat definitely looks unusual, but don't know how good a movie they'll get. I think Grumpy Cat is going to actually BE grumpy when shooting that movie! Thanks for the cartoon making URL--I might try it out.

I think fruit sugar is different then the sugar you use in bakery or coffee.
