Woke up to the smell of fresh bread baking.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Today is Potluck Club at school.  It was supposed to be on Thursday but so many of our group couldn’t do it yesterday that we moved it to today.  The theme is supposed to be warm and fuzzy.  Lots of soups coming in and I decided to take it easy this time and make beer bread.  The problem is that I forgot until about 11:00 p.m. last night but DS is here and said he’d make it for me.  The whole house smells like Thanksgiving.  I confessed to Phyllisann about a horrible childhood experience with split pea soup with ham and she said she’s making it today to cure my phobia for good.  We’ll see….

Had a good time with the Sistahs last night.  Ate at a sandwich place that was a Panera clone.  I kept looking at the marquis where they had a frozen mocha cappachino.  I was going to get a diet coke right up to the point where the guy behind the counter asked if I wanted to try their Chocolate Bliss and found myself enthusiastically assuring him that I would.  Thank God it wasn’t as good as it looked or I’d be up there all the time.

Got a little burr under my saddle at the movie theatre where the girl selling the tickets had a cup on the counter saying “Tips”.  Huh??  For what?  Taking my money and handing me a ticket?  You’ve got to be kidding.  Didn’t spoil the movie, though.  Meryl Streep did a fantastic job.  Left me wanting to come home with Jana and Pam, make glittery spandex costumes, and rent a karaoke machine.

Oops!  Blog time is over.  Gotta hit the shower.

Those pesky tip jars are showing up everywhere ~ grrrr! She was trying to get some $$ before you had to take out a second mortgage at the concession stand.

Who’s brilliant idea was it to mush up peas and call it a soup anyway? It reminds me of baby diapers.

Itttttt’s Friday! Enjoy!

Hey! If the bottom falls out here, I just may take you up on your offer of staying in your cabin. Mowing the grass is a small price to pay 😆

I think I’m going to put a tip jar on my desk. What teacher couldn’t use some extra cash?

Split pea with ham is my favorite soup (next to New England clam chowder, but that’s only when I’m in San Fran.) Didn’t you just LOVE Mamma Mia?!! My daughter and I saw it THREE times over the summer! My 16 year old son now has ABBA on his iPod! My first album when I was VERY VERY young, was ABBA (and yes, back in the days of vinyl.)

Did a movie with a friend myself yesterday–Secret Life of Bees.
What I hate is that when a server asks “do you want your change?” when the meal is like $28. and you’ve handed them 2 twenties!!!
