Friday Fragments #290

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Alas, we’ve almost made it through the week, because Friday is here!  It’s time to link up a few ‘Friday Fragments’ over at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.  Thanks to Mrs. 4-4-4-4 for hosting!

It’s been ‘one of those weeks’ around here, and it’s left me tired and without much to write.  My thoughts are in fragments, so ‘Friday Fragments’ is the perfect meme today.


I spent a delightful morning with our next-to-the-youngest grandson, Chase, on Tuesday.  Chase just turned two in December, and is turning out to be quite ‘a character’!  He only likes the show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which we watched twice, he only likes one of my many books, Five Little Ducks, which we read four times, and he only wanted to hear the song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, which we played several times. That little guy is a mess, and he reminds me a lot of his daddy when he was little!


Ed’s had a particularly rough week at work.  You know how it is, when work isn’t going well, you bring the stress home with you.  It’s nothing I can blog about, except to say, I hope things get better soon.  Ed looks tired, and I worry about him.


I woke up to cold temperatures, again, yesterday morning.  I went outside, under-dressed, and promptly came back inside for more clothing!  It’s even colder today.  It was actually thirty-two degrees, this morning.  I’ll say it, once again, I’d never make it living up north!  I can’t imagine…


Our son-in-law’s grandmother passed away yesterday, after an extended illness. She and Ed’s mom used to know each other, and I used to enjoy listening to them talk when they’d meet up at granddaughter, Madison’s, birthday parties.  Miss Eloise was a sweet lady, and she will be sadly missed.  I can imagine her and Ed’s mom sitting in Heaven, talking about old times…


I’m always on the lookout for good books to read, and, last week, during his FF post, lisleman mentioned the book, I Got a Name-The Jim Croce Story.  I went to Amazon, and ordered the book, because I’ve been a fan of Jim Croce, for years.  (Does anyone else out there remember Jim?)  The book arrived a couple of days ago, and I can’t wait to read it!  I’m just finishing up Becoming Sister Wives.  Speaking of Sister Wives, does anybody else out there watch that show?  It’s sort of like a train wreck.  I know I shouldn’t watch, but I just can’t help myself.  Why four women would want to share one man is a mystery to me!


That’s about all I’ve got for today.  It’s been a slow week here.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. I have a great-niece who just turned two and it is the most PRECIOUS age! I love it.
    I watch Sister Wives from time to time. I just can’t imagine living that way. I dont think I could handle it!

  2. I finished a book about Grace Kelly last week. It was a very interesting read as well. I love Jim Croce.

  3. Yes, I remember Jim Croce…hubby and I use to listen to his music when we were dating. The last couple of years before Hubby retired were very stressful for him as well. It was a hard time because he couldn’t leave it at work either. So, I can relate. I will pray that things get better. Sounds like little Chase knows what he likes…cute!! 🙂

  4. I remember Jim Croce. Actually back in Chicago many years ago we went to see Jim Croce in a small theater in the round and Woody Allen was the opening act!!! I will have to check that book out. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I remember Jim Croce…I loved “Time in a Bottle.”

    Hope things straighten out at work for your hubby.

  6. I loved Jim Croce.
    I am still in NC and it was 26 degrees this morning when I took Joelle’s little one to kindergarten. My husband informed me the temp in Philadelphia this morning was 7 degrees.
    I admit to being fascinated by and watching sister wives. I will catch up when I get home, recorded the new shows.

  7. Jim Croce had great music. I remember him well. I just finished the trilogy, The Last Lion, chronicling the life of Winston Churchill. Lengthy but very good read. I learned about history and the culture of Europe and England as well.

  8. Thanks for mentioning me regarding the Jim Croce story. I’m interested in what you think about the book.
    32 degrees today here would be nice warming day.
    Rough times at work – I sure don’t miss that. I’ve had some jobs with more of it and some with less. I think any job has a bit of it sooner or later.

  9. Chase sounds like a young man who knows his own mind! Hope your and Ed’s weekend and coming week bring good weather and good times.

  10. Hey, Kathy! I remember Jim Croce and like his music. He actually attended Villanova University, where Joe graduated. Joe is much older, but he is always quick to mention it when we hear Jim on the radio (oldies station!). I’ll have to look for the book, for Joe. Thanks for mentioning it! Hope Ed gets some rest and that things settle for him at work.

  11. I loved Jim Croce. My favorite song of his was (Can’t remember the exact name) Operator.

  12. Sending my best to you and Ed for a MUCH better week this week.
