Fridays Feast 3/7/08

Today is the last day you can enter my contest. My daughter Ruth is coming home from school for Spring Break today. She will draw the winner from Sweet Hubby's hat tonight, and I will post the winner's name tomorrow.

My bird feeders are sticking out through the snow. One looks okay, but the other is clearly broken. Despite being buried all the way up to their roofs, the Chickadees have found a way to get food from them. They've been very busy this morning taking turns going into the tunnel for seed. I have informed Sweet Hubby he will be buying me a new feeder, and we're gonna dig out the others this weekend.

Speaking of birds, we had one of those heart stopper moments this morning. Sweet Hubby and I were sitting in our leather hugs, appropriate fur kids in our laps (him the dogs, me the cats), watching the morning news, and counting the seconds until the coffee maker was done brewing the morning juice. It got to that point that is just a couple minutes before the 'done' beeper comes on, when there are weird bubbling, burping, and grunting sounds, when all of a sudden it started making some really LOUD popping noises. The sound scared the you-know-what out of us. Sweet Hubby and I leaped to our feet, both shouting "Pull the plug"--animals flying. We ran into the kitchen--then stopped. It wasn't the coffee maker. What the ???????????


A Northern Flicker was banging his beak on the skylight in the kitchen.

I have found a new use for my paint gun revolver.

Thought I'd do a Fridays Feast today.


If you could be any current celebrity for one whole week, who would you want to be?

Oh man, this one is really really hard because I have absolutely NO desire to be one of the current celebrities. Actually, who I'd like to be is the wife of Robin Williams for a week. A whole week of laughing sounds so incredibly delicious.


On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you enjoy talking on the phone?



Name a charitable organization to which you have donated (or would like to).

The Red Cross.

Main Course

What is a food you like so much you could eat it every single day for a month?



Have you or anyone in your family had the flu this year?

Oh yes, we've all had it!

Until tomorrow, have a great day!


  1. Cheese seems to be a popular food choice! :) And your appetizer sounds like it would be a whole lot of fun! Happy Friday!

  2. Oh yes, I like cheese too.
    Especially Old Amsterdam. Yummy!
