Friday Round-Up


February 1, 2013 by applesandarteries

Don’t mind me…I’m going to keep drinking my hot coffee as I type.  The temp is -5 with the “feels like” -19 disclaimer.  I’m trying to figure out if head-to-toe fleece will be appropriate Casual Friday attire!

Paulo Coelho is my favorite author.  If you haven’t read The Alchemist, please do yourself a favor and read this gem.  This list is on Coelho’s blog:

Lessons from Einstein

Two favorites that are sticking with me today:

2. Perseverance is Priceless “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

7. Create Value “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

I’m on the hunt for this kitchen tool.  Zucchini spaghetti here I come!

This kid is cracking me up this morning!  He’s a tiny dancing machine!

There’s also been a lot of this going on


Kostas is relentless and does the same thing every night–he sits in front of Tucker and pouts, stares him down, and makes his desire to be on the dog bed known – in the form of very loud sighs.  But Tucker can’t hear him so this goes on for a while until Kostas is basically standing over Tucker and there’s a changing of the guard and Kostas gets the bed.  And just to be clear – there’s a perfectly good dog bed waiting for Kostas but he’s particular about where he wants to be at certain times of day.

I’m cramming a lot in today!

 The New Year New Gear posts will be up on Monday.  I’m really looking forward to reading about everyone’s experience.

Is there interest in another month of the NYNG exchange?

Have you ever been on a dance/kiss cam?  Can you wear fleece to work?


  1. I missed the NYNG exchange- would love for you to do it again so I can participate!
    Have a grea weekend.

  2. I’ve never been on the kiss cam but always wanted to be! However, I think if I was really on the kiss cam, I’d be really embarrassed. :P

  3. Fleece is totally acceptable, especially when it is SO cold! Luckily, I am working from home today so I am in sweats and proud of it :)

    oh man my pups do the same thing. they all have great places to lay or rest and they have to fight over the same spot! Silly. ;-)

  5. aw i would be pouting if someone didn’t share the bed as well. hilarious!

    My dogs fight over everything lol! Especially the sun spot..And I wear fleece everywhere…at work we can where them if they have our logo on it! I am always freezing so fleece is a must!

  7. Fleece is amazing and can be worn when ever you want! I just saw your speaking at Firbloggin’ this year, So am I! I’m going to have to find you!

  8. I love the kiss cam….it’s one of my favorite parts of sporting events! -19 is insane!! Not to rub it in, but it’s 68 here (hot for us!)…you should come out to cali this weekend :)

  9. Just found your blog and been browsing around so wanted to say hi!!

    Luckily, I can wear fleece to work (I work from home) and on snowy days like today it’s nice to be comfy :-)
    Haven’t read ‘the Alchemist’, but I did enjoy Paulo Coelho’s ‘the Witch of Portobello’ and ‘By the River Piedra I sat Down and Wept’. Intriguing stories.
    Think that dancing kid will make it to ‘Glee’?? Too cute!
