1000 Blessing's Friday & Friday's Feast

1000 Blessing's Friday

101. We just received our last meal the church is providing, but get a load of what all she brought: huge bowl of chicken and rice soup, green beans, augratin potatoes, applesauce jello, a whole loaf of banana bread, a whole loaf of zucchini bread, 9 x 13 pan of chicken and cheese casserole and a big old triple layer chocolate cake! Enough to feed a small army or a hungry Amy!

102. Coupons for energy drinks that I don’t need! When I indulge on one of my beloved drinks it will only cost $1.00. It’s still way too much, but it’s a treat I have now and then.

103. Clearance candles for only 25 cents! My daughter bought me about a dozen and at first I was skeptical. I’ve been burning one today and it had lasted for hours and has made the house smell wonderful. Normally cheap candles don’t do a bit of good.

104. Full size candy bars also for only 25 cents! No, these are not for me because I HAVE to lose weight. They make terrific prizes for my Chums in Awanas. The month of October is BARF month. BARF stands for Be A Real Friend / Bring A Real Friend. For each new girl that comes she gets a candy bar and so does the one who invited her!

105. Texting. My daughter has had to work as the overnight cashier, which makes her father and me very nervous. But all through the night we’ve been able to text and ask if she’s doing okay.

106. Cash Cab! Have you seen this show? It’s so simple and yet so fun. And my husband is so smart so I know that when we appear on it someday we will win tons of money!

107. Finding pretty thank you cards at the Dollar Tree. I know it sounds cheap, but I wanted to send out a card to all the families that provided meals and also to those that sent cards over and over. I had to buy a lot and they were just as pretty as the ones you find at Target or a Hallmark store. Plus they were only 10 cents each!

108. On the show Bringing Home Baby yesterday, this couple had twin girls. Oh my goodness were they the prettiest, tiniest babies I have ever seen. I just couldn’t help but oooh and ahhh over them the entire show. I know I don’t know them and probably never will, but they were just so sweet and brought a silly grin to my face for a half an hour!

109. The new season of Dancing with the Stars started this week. Should I count this as a blessing? I say yes because as of right now I’m still not able to get out and about and

110. Laughter! I have laughed out loud so much this week over this and that and it just feels so good! What makes you laugh out loud?



FRIDAY'S FEAST

Appetizer

How are you today?


I'm happy! No particular reason, I just am.

Name 3 television shows you watch on a regular basis.

I will be watching Dancing with the Stars, Cash Cab and reruns of King of Queens. I love television and waste a lot of time watching it. Me bad!

What’s the scariest weather situation you’ve experienced?

It was so foggy coming home one night that you could only see about five feet in front of you. We were driving a big truck and all of the sudden out of nowhere there was a man walking in the middle of the road. It was a miracle that we didn't run him over! Why he was walking in the middle of the road on such a foggy night I will never understand.
Fortunately I have never had any horrible weather experiences!


Main Course

If you could wake up tomorrow morning in another country, where would you want to be?


Back at the bed and breakfast in Switzerland I was fortunate to stay in with my husband. I can picture us in our pj's on the balcony wrapped up in our down comforter sipping hot chocolate and breathing in the cool, crisp air!

Dessert

What do you usually wear to sleep?


Wouldn't you like to know! How does a silky black negligee sound? Too bad! I sleep in a variety of big comfy t-shirts. I actually have a nightgown we call Thin Min because it was an over sized pink nightgown with Minnie Mouse on it. I wore if for years and years and after a while it got so thin you could see everything! It is so soft and comfy that even my hubby put it on one time and wanted to wear it! LOL! Sexy!

I love your list and now thanks to my sister, I love "dancing with the stars". There's lots of things to be thankful for in this world.

I watch too much TV, too -- way past midnight that my 4-year old have to come down and tell me, "You're watching too much TV, Daddy."

He says this while wagging his finger at me.

When I catch King of Queen's I love to watch it.

A bed and breakfast in Switzerland sounds like heaven. Sipping hot chocolate, wrapped in a comfy blanket. Where do I sign up?

Have a great weekend Amy!

LOL at your dessert! ;) I would LOVE to go to Switzerland! It was my late pastor's favorite vacation spot.

I'm so out of it. I don't even know how to text! My husband just got a new cell phone and texts me all the time. I guess I better figure it out.
