Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments!  This is the Memorial Weekend edition of Mrs. 4444 weekly event. It's one of my favorite places to go to find new blogs and to read some very funny stuff.  I can't wait to spend some time reading all of the Fraggers this weeks.  It's been ages since I've been able to read all of them, but I think I'll be able to do it this time.

I want to THANK all of the people who have made this country great by keeping us safe.  Thank you. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Today is a link fest of sorts.  Nearly everything that I collected this week was something that I read that I just had to share!  I hope you get a few moments to click on the links.  I narrowed it down to the bare minimum, so it wouldn't be overwhelming.


Mrs. 4444 is having a Gratitude Giveaway on her blog and one of the prizes is from little ol' me.  If you'd like to be a part of the celebration and possibly win a fabulous prize, head on over the Gratitude Giveway.

My friend Terri, This is How We Roll,  from is also having a giveaway.  I have nothing to do with this one, but while I'm talking about fun giveaways, I had to mention Terri!


My sister sent me a photo of baby Scarlett with her little fat roll legs.  I'm not going to be able to show that photo, but what I will do is link to Pioneer Woman's post about a cutie patootie!  You have see this little baby and her legs and her smooth moves :)

Here is my photo of baby Scarlett, my niece.  I love her eye color in this photo.


Do you know someone who'd love to have a piece of art from all of their friends and family?  What about a big birthday coming up for someone far away?  Or maybe a college kid who is getting a bit homesick?   Here is a fun project!  You send out cards to friends and family and then when they send them back they make a picture for the recipient from Oh Joy!    I would love to be able to do this for someone.


I've tried a few times this week to remember pick up some Greek yogurt so I could make the Tzatziki recipe from Little Brown Pen. Tzatziki is a yogurt, cucumber,garlic and dill sauce (or dip or dressing) that I just a wonderful addition to scrambled eggs or cold chicken or even a gyro! Yummy. (the recipe is at the very end of the post)


I saw this little ditty and I should have it as a daily mantra.  I should actually chant it while I clean out the boxes of stuff that I keep holding onto.  There is a lot of wisdom in these 9 lines.

mnmlist : less

Stop buying unnecessary things.
Toss half your stuff, learn contentedness.
Reduce half again.
List 4 essential things in your life,
stop doing non-essential things.
Do these essentials first each day, clear distractions
focus on each moment.
Let go of attachment to doing, having more.
Fall in love with less.


I adore Color Me Katie and her cat, Moo, is such a hoot.  She posted the 12 Things She Loves about Moo yesterday with 12 wonderful photos.  You may fall in love with Moo, too!


If you didn't get a chance to read my post yesterday about the SIGH in my life, please do.  I think my husband and I are going to need some prayers.  Thank you.


I hope you have a lovely holiday weekend.  Be safe and take care!

That picture of Moo is so cute. I miss having cats. Between all the allergies in our house having pets with hair is not an option.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Baby Scarlett is beautiful! I remember my son and rolly polly's! :)

I wonder if this baby will do the same :)

Have a great holiday weekend!

Well, in spite of the SIGH, I enjoyed your fragments this week, Kristin.

Don't feel bad; it's been ages since I've been able to read all of the fragments, too!haha
