Midweek Scribbles

scribbles-8b Today’s post reminds me of the game show Jeopardy because I have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. . .

“I’ll take potpourri for a hundred, Alex!” 😀

Hmmm, I’ll call my version – blogpourri 😉

~ We’re on vacation this week, but instead of going away, we’re just kicking back at home. It really is delightful to relax a little, take care of a couple of overdue chores, and have leisurely breakfasts and dinners. But, why is it that vacation weeks are always the shortest weeks of the year?

~ I had my hair cut today. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I said, “Not too short.” I can’t even imagine what she would have done if I had said “Cut it short, please.”

~ Have you heard that you can buy your eggs already boiled and shelled at the supermarket? Well, at least in Great Britain. See the story here.

~ Looking for a quick and tasty appetizer?
Pick up some thinly sliced cooked ham at the supermarket.
Lightly spread apricot jam on each piece and then roll up.
Transfer all to a shallow pan and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Place under the broiler briefly – just to heat.
Cut into bite size pieces before serving, if desired. This is a nice addition to sliced fruit and your favorite cheese and crackers! Don’t let them fill up on appetizers though! They’ll never eat dinner. 😉

~ To answer the weekly question regarding a book for summer reading . . .books
I recently reread an old classic that I first discovered in high school – The Good Earth by Pearl Buck. Even if you’ve read it before, try it again. You might agree it’s even better the second or third time around.

  1. Hi! Have a nice vacation. Even a vacation at home is great. One more week then I get mine. The county fair will be going on then so I would like to take the kids. Hope the weather is nice.

    Haircuts! How long is your hairdresser’s hair? Could be a clue to what she thinks is short.

  2. Oh no, I’m sorry about your hair! The great thing about hair though, is that it grows back – it just takes a little time. Is it long enough to pull it back with a cute hairband?

    Also, kudos on the appetizer! Was that your idea, or did you stumble upon it somewhere?

    Hi Ladies! 🙂

    To answer your questions…..

    The hairdresser has shoulder-length hair. She cut my hair once before and it was fine, but this time she really got carried away and took way too much off the sides. The top and back are short but I wouldn’t mind so much if she left me something more around my ears.

    I should try a hairband! And, you’re right, it will grow. I am consoling myself that it should be a perfect length by the end of August, when I have a wedding to attend.

    The appetizer recipe was given to me several years ago by a friend who has a catering business!
