Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

There are a bunch of little things that happen during the week that don't all deserve their own blog post, but they are still worth remembering, or they make me think, or they just plain amuse me and I want to share.  So Friday Fragments is a great way to get all those little things out!

*The mail man came to my house THREE times yesterday! First he brought regular, everyday mail.  Then he came back and brought a package.  That wasn't too weird since he normally brings packages back by truck after they walk the route.  But then he came back, again in the truck, the third time to bring 1 tiny political flier.  I could have done without that one!

*Caroline is almost 16 months old and already knows that when she takes her clothes off they go in the hamper. Proud mom!  Lets see if this continues into her teenage years.

*I want to make Caroline a Halloween costume this year, but I can't figure out what I want her to be.  Last year she got too hot in the costume we bought because it was still almost 80* here and I think it's going to be that way again this year. 

*Since we are not finding out whether Baby Roo is a boy or a girl I'm crocheting a pink blanket and a blue blanket so that we can use whichever one is appropriate.  I started with blue... and I'm only 1/2 done.  Time to pick up the pace because I still have a quilt to make too! 

*I'm super picky about any purse that I buy.  And I'm not one to spend more than $50.  So I've been carrying around a purse for the last couple of weeks that has 2 rips and a zipper that is almost completely falling off because I can not find one that I like to replace it.  I'm to the point of just toting my wallet instead of carrying the whole purse. 

*Shopping for Christmas this year is giving me hives already!  I'm much more excited about figuring out what we're going to do for a Christmas card photo. 

Come on over to Half-Past Kissin' Time to link up your own Friday Fragments if you've got random stuff bouncing around in your noggin!


  1. on my FF rounds - teenager keeping a clean room is like winning the lottery. Don't hold your breath.
    BTW - I think not knowing the gender is the best but then we didn't have the option years ago. Our daughter due in Nov. also chose not to know.

  2. Darn it. Google ate my comment!

    Congrats on the hamper training!!! :)

    Family photos---I find organizing those stressful. I'm sure your knitting will help you relax on that account :)

    Shopping for Christmas--Consider Etsy--I found some fun stuff there last year, and it's helpful to small business folks :)

  3. I can't start thinking about Christmas yet, there's still a whole bunch of family birthdays to get through first!

    The last wallet I bought I chose on the basis that it would fit in my pocket so I could get by without carrying a bag. I now get really annoyed by clothes than have no pockets ;-)

  4. I know what you mean about being a proud momma! Landon helped me put his shoes on this morning and you would have thought he invented the light bulb! I was over the moon! LOL. Take care!
