Thoughts Too Short for a Real Blog Post

My good blogger buddy Carole does this on her blog, and I stole her idea. Some days you just think in spurts, not paragraphs! And since I am so easily distracted from. (ha ha)

I like frozen grapes. I love to buy two bunches of grapes. One we eat as soon as we finish unloading and putting away the groceries. The other bunch we freeze. It makes the BEST evening snack. They melt slowly, and taste just sooooooo refreshing.

I have a new van and I think I will name it the Blueberry Ferry.

When my Grandma Geri passed away, I asked for her favorite red coat. I think of her in that coat all the time. She had it hanging in a bag, and I tore just a tiny hole in the bag so I could keep Gram's special perfumey/lotioney smell inside for as long as possible. I will go to the closet and just put my nose close to the coat and remember......but the smell is getting fainter each day. It makes me sad.

I'm going to have to face the fact that I will never have the ability to whistle. Not a note, let alone a cheery tune.

The other day a carry-out person at the store THREW my groceries into my car. Smack! Smack! The food hit the floor of the car and rolled here and there. Umm, had a bad day, Miss?

I read two chapters of the latest Sisterchicks novel each day on my treadmill. The characters are traveling through England. On my treadmill, they are not getting anywhere fast. Poor dears.

I like the actor Liam Neeson, and I am so sorry for his loss of his wife. What a tragedy. I'm not sure I want to go skiing for awhile.

I like Twitter, but I'm not sure I want to be anyone's Tweeps, Twiend, or have a Twiendship.

How does the silverware tray get so crumby inside, when everything put in there is CLEAN?

That is great! I was wondering about the crumby utensil holder too... weird.

Carole said...

LOL!! I enjoyed reading your "short thoughts" a lot more than reading my own for a change! :-D I have never frozen grapes but that sounds like a GREAT idea, I will totally try that next time I buy grapes.

I've never had a frozen grape. Ever. I'm going to try it next time I go to the store.

They are delicious!! Absolutely wonderful. I love eating them while watching a movie. Wash them AFTER you freeze them, or they get mushy.

Hmm, good question about the silverware tray. I always noticed it but never made the connection that the stuff in there is supposed to be clean.
I am pretty sure I can blame that on my kids. Or The Husband. Yep. Just give me some time to think it up.....

I used to *love* frozen grapes as a teenager. I've tried to get the kids to like them, but it hasn't gone well. At least they like grapes non frozen.

Just the other day I thought to myself, "I really need to wash out the silverware tray as there are so many crumbs in there and we have company coming!" As if they don't get crumbs in their silverware too...or as if they may judge me for having a dirty tray...hee hee Excellent question which I have pondered and never found the answer...this is going to be on my mind today!

Wishing you a Happy Monday today!

With love from Colorado,
Denise :-)
