Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Saturday Scraps

.

It just doesn't sound as good as "Friday Fragments", does it!?!

But since I am a day late AGAIN, it is the best I can do.


* * * * * * * * * * *


Don't forget to fall back tonight.

I just recently brought home this techno-treasure. It is old technology, though technology nonetheless. It has to be wound every few days and makes a delicious ticking sound which fills the room.

I LOVE it.

I shall be setting it back an hour this evening. I suggest you do the same with all of your clocks, or tomorrow when you show up an hour early for church or brunch or some other event, you will feel like this:

We've been waking up each morning to the kind of hard frost which etches everything in white.

Later in the day, when the temperatures go up towards a balmy 50, we've been enjoying skies like this.

The other day, when the temperature reached 47, I saw a man riding on his mower wearing a ski jacket, ear muffs, and gloves. I got a big chuckle out of that - - - because OTHER folks are still running around in their t-shirt sleeves and shorts.

I personally have graduated to long sleeves, though not necessarily a coat.

Of course, I don't necessarily wear a coat even when it's 10 below.

This is how Mackinley went to school on nerd day.


This is one of Mackinley's school projects.

A budding Picasso, if you ask me!

Desperate times call for desperate measures.


Believe me, two "unwins" in a row equals desperate times.
So I'm taking desperate measures.

Including buying this beauty to wear on my head.

During the game.

Down in my FBC where no one will see me.

But if I were GOING to the game I'd wear it there too.


So today at 3:30 when I descend into my FBC to watch the game,


I shall pull out and don all my BEST Badger gear.


I'll shod my feet,
Wrap up in one of my Badger blankies,
And give "our boys" my BEST armchair coaching.

I can't deal with another unwin.

Mommy's Idea

Please head on over to Mrs. 4444's place
And check out all the Friday Fragments.

Atta girl! Bundle up in as much Badger gear as possible. We're counting on you!

Beverooni said...

Oh, I love your Badger gear -- especially your bag. Dang, that is cute! Are you a couch coach? Do you scream and cheer? I hope so. ;-)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I think a video of you during a game would be a hoot! Crossing fingers for the Badger's!

From the Kitchen said...

Boy am I glad to have an extra hour this weekend--even through it means darkness at 4 p.m. for the rest of the winter. I'm with you on the coat "thing". I'd rather be cold than wear one in the car or carry a coat while in a mall (if I ever went to a mall)!!

Go Badgers!

Best,
Bonnie

Joe wants to know why you have M&M shoes on - definitely brain freeze, says he!

Love your outfits, but MacKinley's are the best!! :) What a cutie pie.

Too bad you didn't get a pic of the guy on the lawn mower.

Loving our blue skies...The frost? Not so much.

Thanks for linking up! :)

I'm so happy for the time change. I need the extra sleep.

Kristin - The Goat said...

I've been staying up so late and sleeping late into the day that I hardly even noticed the time change. My cat did today though when her treat was not on the floor at 4pm, her time. Poor thing had to wait an extra whole h o u r!! Oh, she nearly didn't make it LOL

Do you know how difficult it is to explain that daylight savings time is over to three dogs?
Sheesh!
I didn't see. Did your team win?
