Friday Fragments

Sorry I haven't blogged this week. Crazy every day it seems. But Mrs. 4444 allows us to be random in a weekly post so I appreciate that.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

We had our bedroom painted yesterday. I know we could have done it ourselves but with the old wallpaper that needed to be textured and a ceiling that had an inset in it, we decided to hire our old painter. He gave us a great deal and we also had him redo the wood on two box windows. They look brand new. I'm not sure if we picked the right color. We need to get a new blind for the window and that should help out.

Stupid criminal of the week was a woman who rang up a huge bill at a bar and then left without paying. Unfortunately she left her purse behind. Pretty easy for the cops to find her after that. 

Summer has arrived steaming through the state. The rains last week brought high humidity added with 100 degrees. Reminds me why I hate summer.

Tried a new recipe this week and another failure. I'm not sure why I keep doing this to us. We never seem to like anything new.

Last night Project Runway started again. I want Tim Gunn to come and spend time with me. He's so great at being a mentor.

So You Think You Can Dance isn't doing too well in the ratings. If they would stop having the same sad sappy contemporary dances and get back to actual dancing (no stories please) it might get better. One of my favorites was out this week so I'm putting all my votes behind Ricky. I think he's going to win the whole thing.


  1. Oh my gosh, I love Tim Dunn too! I actually like a few of the designs last night. Ha.
    Yeah, after experiencing that humidity I can see why you're not a fan of summer.

  2. I'm a Tim Gunn fan too. I love summer, heat and all. It's such a short season here.

  3. LOL with the criminal, you always find good ones of them. It is hard to choose a color for a wall and then wonder how the final result might be. We try about 3-4 new recipes a week, we like about 95% of them. I have a blog post ready to go about menu planning, I probably should put it up some time.

    I'm not fond of hot summer days either.


  4. I just chose a really colorful color for my bedroom. Just did part of a new closet so far but it is growing on me.
    I keep forgetting to watch So You Think You Can Dance. I feel guilty:(
    We just had a criminal leave his wallet behind. Too funny.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. Sorry you're having a hard time with the weather. I LOVE summer. I'm British and we don't get much of it, so we take what we can get.

  7. Don't you LOVE a freshly painted room? It just feels so brand new, it always makes me want to organize things. I'm still a fan of So You Think You Can Dance. I have to confess I like the sappy contemporary pieces. And I feel your pain about Summer. it's been 110 here and I'm so done with being hot. Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. Sometimes it's worth it just to pay someone and have it done. When I try a new recipe I don't usually do anything too crazy. But I don't try new ones very often. I'm too lazy of a cook.

  9. This recipe is delicious and pretty much failproof:

    I'd like to paint our master bathroom, but the last time I did it, I used sand paint, and that's going to be hell to remove!

    Thanks for linking up! Have an awesome weekend.
