Fridays...Oh! Fridays!!

    Now, I know that this header photo is probably very, very wrong!! And I probably shouldn't be getting your saliva glands going so early in the morning...but I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!!! Ha! Ha! I needed to share!
    Hubby and I had this as part of our meal for 'Date Night' last night. Or I should say "I" had it. It's catfish, hush puppies {little corn meal and fried onion balls}, mashed potatoes and gravy, fried okra, corn bread, and cinnamon apples!! Hubby couldn't have the catfish. He's allergic to some fish...catfish is one. But no worries...I enjoyed it enough for both of us!! ^_^
     And what did he get stuck with have?!
   Cabbage and chopped ham. Yum!...Actually, it was very good. :-) And don't feel too sorry for him. He also had ribs!! But I didn't get a picture of them before they disappeared! :-] 
   I really look forward to Fridays!!! :-) ... Before he came home with all of this catfish goodness...and a Mounds chocolate bar as a gift {oooo! Whee! It's good to be in love with a man who knows me! :-))}...I spent a few hours finishing the crocheted hat I started yesterday. He took some pictures of it this morning.
    I think Shequita looks much better in this hat than she did in the red and black hat, don't you?! ^_^
   You might not be able to tell from the photos, but I made it with two different baby-weight yarns, in mint green and turquoise, and held a black thread with them as a third strand. 
    It's really a 'Wuglyee' remnant hat, because I used the last of the turquoise color and had to finish it with just the mint green, doubled, and the black thread on the other part. Another 'Imperfect' creation...that I love!!! What do you think?!
   I made some flower brooches that I think I'm going to list with least one of them anyway, as a "please take my ugly baby home" gift! ^_^
     Everybody can be bribed with flowers...can't they?! ^_^
   Okay, I have to go and get ready for the day. I'm going to try and share another "perfect bite" {Did you ever see the movie "The Mirror Has Two Faces" with Barbara Streisand?} with the hubby this morning for breakfast. Then I've got a bible study I'll be sitting in on, and company coming!! Fun for the mouth, the fingers, and the mind! It's going to be a good Saturday, I think! (Don't ask, about the computer!! ^_^)
    What are you all doing today?!


I'm  often alone,
but not lonely.
I'm  often at home,
but not homely.

I'm  proud of myself,
but not haughty.
I do some things wrong,
but not naughty.

I'm  outgoing-Yes!
But not rowdy.
I sometimes dress down,
but not dowdy.

I'm  bookish, I know,
but not nerdy.
A poetry hound,
kind of wordy!   


  1. Wow! Fried catfish, hush puppies, fried okra, corn bread - I love it! It has been ages since I had that and now I am rather envious. LOL! Thanks for posting your pics. I like your "Wuglyee" hat - you are so creative! Nice poem, I like it and more evidence of how creative you are. Well, I'm off to do my Saturday morning chores, then I will be baking cookies and more this afternoon. Have a great day!

  2. Christy, Yeah! Made me feel like I was down home, Georgia. ^_^ Thanks to "Cracker Barrel" I can get Southern food even here in New England!...Thanks for the nice words about my hat and poem too!! I appreciate the feedback.Enjoy your Saturday! Don't do too many chores! :-]

  3. I love catfish. So now i'm jealous of you for getting to eat catfish. My husband is not a real fish lover so it is not very often that I get to have fish. Your hat is beautiful. Your poems are always wonderful.As for what I will be doing today I will be doing a lot of baking and candy making. Hope you get to enjoy your day. Oh and I forgot to tell you ..... it's snowing here again.

  4. SnowflakeDreams1, ^_^ Sorry about the tempting catfish. If it makes you feel any better there isn't any more!! ^_^ And WOW!!! I can't believe you're getting more snow!! No wonder you're baking! There should be something comforting going on around your house! Ha! Ha!...Thanks for the nice words about the hat and poems too. I really appreciate your thoughts. have a good...chocolate, not of the weekend! :-)

  5. Looks like a great meal Wug! But I have to say that the cabbage and ham looks better to me. Fried food and I don't agree with each other! LOL Had our annual pioneer meeting today and now we're on our way to some friends for a get together with all of us and our families! Have a fun day and I'll talk to you soon!
    BTW....thanks for your comment on my blog too!

  6. CinLynn, Yeah, the cabbage and ham was good. Didn't beat my catfish though! :-) You had some even better food today anyway...Spiritual food! Good for you! Have a good time tonight. I'll catch up with you tomorrow sometime.

  7. Hey I forgot to mention....I love the new hat!! And the brooch too! :)

    We had a wonderful time! Hopefully you did too!

  8. I've never had catfish nor okra but they sure do look really scrumptious in that photo!
    I don't know if everyone can be bribed(bought) with flowers but I sure can :)

  9. CinLynn, Ha! Thanks my friend!! I'm hoping to list it tomorrow. We'll see if I have time to slow myself down enough to do it! ^_^

  10. Jo-anne, WOW! Never?!!! I need to move closer to you. You clearly need someone around to share the finer things of life with you!! {Obviously joking!!} ^_^ First time you get a chance...GET SOME! You'll like it!! :-)

  11. I am sure that there are a lot of things you could share with me that I have never tried :) I bet some of them would be finer things too lol

  12. Jo-anne, :-) And I'd have fun doing it too!!
