Five for Friday….
that’s five random thoughts that have absolutely nothing to do with each other but just my thoughts for the week – which, in other words, could mean a glimpse inside my head….scary to be sure!! Nevertheless, here goes:
1 – on the way home from work on Thursday evening, I was in the single worst storm I, personally, have ever witnessed! It was insane. The rain was so hard that I cannot even think of words to describe it. The hail was pounded by car so hard it was completely deafening. Add to that – out of control wind (yes, a few tornadoes touched down in our area), lightning, thunder….and it was so powerful, and so awe-striking – not to mention, just a bit terrifying!
Right before the hail started, a guy on his motorcycle passed me. His motorcycle. There really was no place for him to stop so I’m sure he was just trying to get home – or get anywhere! – but he had to be in pure misery. I felt terrible for him.
On the other hand, earlier (on the way TO work)…it was not storming but it was rainy and nasty…and the lawn guy was cutting the grass in the next neighborhood. Did not feel sorry for him – just thought he was a nut!
2 – as if Pumpkin Spice bagels alone did not completely excite my taste buds……I recently discovered this:
Have you tried this cinnamon butter? DIVINE. Just about anything you can imagine that tastes wonderful with butter…this would only make it most wonderful. I can’t wait to put some on a fresh baked sweet potato. Have mercy.
3 – Just one more thing to love about fall is all of the pumpkin patches, fall festivals and corn mazes. I really miss the fun field trips to the pumpkin patch when my kiddos were little. Corn mazes are not just kid fun, either!
But did you hear on the news (it made national news) about a lady and her two children that got lost in the corn maze – literally lost. They called 9-1-1- to get out. I’m sorry…but I could not help but laugh. I’m sure they were panicked and it may have been getting dark so it was, maybe, two parts scary. But, it was really just four parts funny.
Having been, many moons ago, a police dispatcher…I would have loved to have been the one who took that call. Truly, I do.
4 – In fashion news, the “hot” thing for this fall and winter season is, supposedly, boots! I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with boots. I LOVE the look of boots. I LOVE all the boots I see on the cute models in magazines and ads. I LOVE the idea of wearing a cute pair of boots (especially with my tights). However, I HATE how boots look on my (huge) feet. I HATE the way boots look on my legs. I HATE the way boots hurt my feet – always. And I HATE that boots do not immediately make me look cute and sassy like those models in the magazine.
Do you wear boots? I promise, I won’t hate.
5 – These are my two sweeties….waiting in the doctor’s office. Both were feeling under the weather – but are still just as cute as ever!!
