What We've Been Up To This Week - Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is hosted by 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.


First of all, at the end of the year we always review the lists of the books we've read and choose our favorites.  We post these over at our book blog (Grab a Book From Our Stack).  We had 18 books that we both loved this past your and listed them for you with links to our reviews.  

Cracker Barrel

We enjoyed several meals at Cracker Barrel recently and when I washed my hands in the restroom, the water wouldn't come on. It was those automatic faucets where you just put your hands under them and the water is supposed to come out. People next to me had theirs working so I tried that sink and it didn't like me. I finally asked a girl next to me how she got that to work and she showed me the sensors and said I had to have my hands lower across from them. So then it worked when I lowered my hands--felt stupid but at least now I know.

Abby's Leg

I am pleased to report that Abby's leg seems very close to normal now after being at the full dosage of Metacam for a week and a few days.

Unique Shirt

My husband found the perfect t-shirt for me for Christmas and I love it! He was right that I never would have guessed what it was. I will be wearing this to our Children's Worker Breakfast at church coming soon.


Two things cracked me up recently: First was when my husband started putting on MY black pants by accident, thinking they were his. I had them laid out on the bed and he picked them up and started putting them on!

The other funny thing was when we were walking the dog, Gerard said maybe the Browns would put in "Thigpen" but I heard it as "Pigpen" and busted up laughing, thinking of the dirty Charlie Brown character.


Of course, we've been cheering for the Browns, Patriots, Bruins and Ohio State. I am pleased with the Browns season because they did better than expected, only had one really bad game, and Hoyer is not hurt. They really need to get rid of those all brown uniforms they sometimes wear that they NEVER play well in! Unfortunately, when they lost their center, that's when the running game fell apart and consequently, led to their downfall. I never realized how important the center position was until this season.

Patriots still find ways to win and Brady is just a real quality guy, both on and off the field. I'd love to see the Bengals and the Patriots in the Super Bowl with the Patriots winning.

Don't know what happened to the Bruins; Gerard thinks they are getting old.

And finally, our Ohio State Buckeyes came through last night against Alabama. What an exciting come-from-behind win! GO BUCKS!

When channel surfing, I discovered a sport I never knew of before--red bull bike racing in Colorado.  These guys are dare devils and amazing with how they can ride these bikes down mountain trails the go straight down with tight turns and drop offs.  This blew me away.

I'm glad that Abby is almost back to normal. Our Little Bit came up lame a few days ago too, but we have medication for her all the time. It's tough getting old.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the babies. ☺

We're glad that Abby's leg is better! As for the football game, now we have to listen to the news people talk about the Ducks for another 10 days. Ugh!

Summer said...

Paws up for Abby! I'm so glad to hear she is doing better!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You have definitely kept yourself busy!
Happy New Year....

Karen said...

Beaded Tail: Those Ducks have the ugliest uniforms I've seen yet--all green with yellow--UGH!

All, I am cautiously optimistic about Abby. Yes, her leg seems better but not completely well yet and it's been over a week. Gerard is very optimistic and she did her normal walks today.

I love Cracker Barrel. One of my favorite places to eat.

I am so glad your Abby's leg is getting better.
I love Cracker Barrel too, one of my favorite places to shop and eat.
I felt a bit dumb with those sinks too. At least you were brave enough to ask, I just stalked people to see how it was done.
Happy new Year!
