Turkey Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 6 Comments

In light of the fact that this is our last bits before the official Thanksgiving holiday, it seems only appropriate that we have turkey bits today. So here we go…

  1. Turkey or other meat? And if turkey, white or dark meat?
  2. Favorite veggie?
  3. Stuffing or mashed potatoes?
  4. Favorite way to have turkey leftovers?
  5. Under/over on how long you’ll think you’ll be eating leftovers this year?
  6. Dessert most looking forward to?

In lieu of the holiday and the busyness that ensues (my college kid is coming home!), I’ll meet you all back here again on Monday, November 27th.  Until then, be safe, eat well 🙂  , save up your favorite “three things–the post holiday wrap up” to share when we return.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Sleep Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 6 Comments

Last night, the 9 + days of traveling for work events, followed by the two back-to-back ones I did on Wednesday, caught up to me and I was exhausted. So I thought maybe we’d do some sleep-related bits today. 🙂

  1. In terms of blankets when it’s cold:  Over your shoulder or up to your nose?
  2. Side, stomach, or back sleeper?
  3. Room warm or room cool?
  4. Music/TV on or off?
  5. Snooze or get up the first time?

Have a great weekend, everyone! My youngest is home for the next few days and that makes me a very happy mom!

Apple Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 7 Comments

applesWe’re approaching apple picking time and that immediately makes me think of trips to the orchard as a kid. Back then, you were allowed to climb the trees and my brother and I were quite the monkeys. There’s a picture somewhere of him actually hanging upside down from a branch. I, of course, had no interest in eating them. They were a fruit, and I didn’t eat fruit (much to my mother’s chagrin).

So, in keeping with the time of year, our bits shall reflect apples.

  1. Red or green?
  2. Apple pie or apple cider?
  3. Caramel or straight?
  4. Grocery store or orchard?

Have a great weekend, everyone!
