Fragmented Freewrites- August 28, 2009

I've decided to combine "Friday Fragments" and "Friday's Freewrite" into "Fragmented Freewrites" in my head, and if I get really ambitious I'll change the blog tag to reflect this! The little bits and pieces from the week that don't justify an entire post on their own, random thoughts you have while you're in the shower, and/or funny things you read or hear on the street all make great fragments. Read more about it by clicking on the link buttons at the bottom of my post.

  • I haven't been feeling very chatty lately. I'm alright, I just haven't had much to say.
  • I got to see my friend Bobbi Jo on Wednesday. We went to the market, the oriental store, and to lunch. It was an awfully nice day! PLUS the weather was nice so we could enjoy being outside.
  • It's not looking likely that I will be getting my fabulous orange sewing machine after all. The lady is incredibly flaky and doesn't respond to e-mails. I might try one more time to get in touch with her, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm sad about it.
  • To make myself feel better, I went and bought two giant bags of orange bell peppers and put them in my orange and yellow bowl.

  • I also got some orange and hot pink flowers, but I didn't take a picture of those (yet).
  • I'm so excited, my dad finally got his passport so he can come visit! My mom has already been here once, so it'll be fun to have her here again and to have my dad come. It probably won't be for several months but it's something to look forward to!
  • I've been toying with the idea of changing the layout and design of my blog but haven't made any concrete decisions. I'm having troubles designing a banner that I like, which is holding everything up. I have a pretty funny picture that would make a good header, but the colors in it are more blue and I don't think I really want a blue blog. I'll have to play with it some more and see what I can come up with.
  • I got a -wee- bit engrossed in the new Professor Layton game on my DS and passed it already. I really should've paced myself because the new Mario game doesn't come out until September 14.
  • We should be having a pretty laid back weekend. Martijn wants to go to the city center and do some window shopping tomorrow and Sunday we may go to Den Bosch to do a historical tour. Both of these things hinge on the weather being decent, so keep your fingers crossed!

Those orange bell peppers look amazing! Wow! So I'm guessing you like your DS....I've been thinking about getting one but the debate over whether I would play it excessively or not at all has me confused and so I haven't bought one yet. Maybe!

Great Fragments...hope your dad can come visit soon!

Beautiful bell peppers in a lovely bowl. I love bright colors like that.

Don't you hate when you beat a game and don't have a new one to play yet? Scott does that a lot while gaming.

Those peppers are gorgeous!! How great is the color orange??? I think we often forget about it...well, not Yaya. She will love that pic!

Those are awesome looking peppers! Sorry the lady is being flaky about the orange sewing machine...hopefully she'll come through for you so you can get it!

Very cool your dad got his passport and will be able to come for a visit!

You could just do something non-blue but with blue highlights to match the color of blue in the header you're working on - then you wouldn't technically have a blue blog... :)

Happy FF! :)

Will be interesting to see what kind of blog change you make. Have a great weekend. TTFN ~ Marydon

Those peppers are gorgeous. I wish I didn't have to slog all the way to the farmer's market to get veggies that nice.

Sad to hear about that sewing machine. Dang. People sucks sometimes.

Have a nice relaxing weekend. :-)

Those peppers look so good! I know what you mean about changing your blog around. I recently did just that and I swear it took all day and into the night. It's definitely a process. It's so hard to decide...

I've been thinking about getting the new prof layton game for Johnny... he has passed the last one... I got 3/4 of the way threw it but after Johnny won it I quit....

Stacey said...

Fingers crossed for your fun weekend! Also that you get your orange sewing machine! :-)

I love pairing pretty veggies in decorative dishware! Something about it cheers me up no matter what. Stopping by from SITS :)

I absolutely LOVE the photo of your peppers! They really are cheery. I'm going to have to make them a Favorite this week :)

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your hubs :)
