Five on Friday


I’ve discovered that suddenly abstaining from coffee for several days makes my head pound.  Drinking it again is like watering an impatiens plant - I perk right up.  I guess that makes me addicted.

Do you have cups in your cabinet that you never use but can’t bear to part with?  I do.  I feel like I’m honoring them just by letting them sit there and be themselves.

There is something very satisfying about going through papers in my inbox and sorting them out. It makes me feel organized.  But inboxes are like laundry baskets.  They never stay empty for long.

Most of my best art never makes it to my blog. I get so busy I forget to blog about it.

I wonder whether Madonna used to dance more, um, vigorously? or whether we’ve all just gotten used to female singers dancing around a lot more now.

Do you remember "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy"? Hmmmmm. Interesting things to ponder.

I love your stream of concientious (sorry I can't spell this word--keep getting the underline--I've tried it three different ways--but you know what I mean!) blog this morning. Hmmmmmm.....

Do you remember when I was little and used to use certain cups and plates because I felt bad for them because they weren't being used? That's what this reminds me of.

My cupboards a loaded with mugs that my husband or son made that I'm afraid to use because I don't want them to break but I can't get rid of them. Glad to know I'm not the only one keeping things that are just taking up room!

Yes, Lisa I DO remember Jack Handy. My daughter loved his quotes. And ally, I do remember how you felt sorry for certain cups, like the gray tupperware cup -- so bland and unloved, yet you kept it in your regular rotation!

I always forget to photo things I give away! My breakfast cups are so old the glaze is cracked.

lol, that must be why I've been describing her performance as boring. xoxo

I could never give up coffee! I can understand Ally's sympathy for the unused cups and mugs - here I only have a few, but at my mum's I was forever getting new mugs and my mum's cupboard was overflowing, but I wouldn't let any of them go - I had different ones for different times of day, moods, drinks (I think this is saying more than is good about myself now!)

I totally get the cups in the cabinet thing. I have some absolutely gorgeous old china teacups that belonged to my mother and that I never use, but that are just so wonderful to look at. I may keep them forever!

I almost ordered some old fashioned, flowered tea cups the other day just for the fun of it. But then I realized I don't have room in the cupboard. sigh.

Ally!! Your comment made me laugh because I used to do the SAME thing!! I still do that :)

Teri, I too thought Madonna seemed a bit like she was in slo-mo in that performance... it was strange huh?

Hi Teri,
HOw are you? I hope you are recovering from what ever ailment lingered in you. :-(

As far as Madonna, well..lol
Age is age does? ..

My prayers are with you Terri.
Hugs, Darlene

Welcome to the realization of coffee addiction. I finally accepted it when I bought a Nespresso coffee maker. I now have more coffee mugs and espresso cups than I care to count. I don't think I could let go of one, you are right, we have to honor.

I can relate to never getting to blogging about some of your best work. I have countless photos that I think..one day I will write about them and then...they are lost in the vast collection on my computer..one day...

My thighs hurt just watching Madonna perform for the Super Bowl...I wonder how she feels one week on?
