Random Friday for July 17th

The Bug is a Bug.
Kailana (Kelly) at The Written World posted this great YouTube video- United
Breaks Guitars.
So funny.

Jill at Fizzy Thoughts has started a new event called "Short
To kick it off she wants to know your ONE WORD reaction to Animal Farm.

I finished my book for TBR Day last night. Too bad TBR Day was on Wednesday.

I bought my first Christmas present today. It's still July!! How early do
you shop for presents? Are you one of those people who start on December
26th? I'd never be able to not give a present to someone if I started that

My day today is packed full of appointments. I predict a very tired Lisa by
5:00. Fortunately, we're going camping tonight! We'll be back on Sunday.
(Note to potential thieves: My neighbors are watching you. And one of my
neighbors watches A LOT.) What are you doing this weekend?

Garden Update: We picked a bunch of swiss chard this week and had it for
dinner. While I wouldn't quite call it excellent, it was way cool to be
eating food from the garden. Even being something we grew wouldn't convince
the Pirate to taste it. The Bug was not a fan. Tons of green tomatoes,
zukes still not getting big before they shrivel up. Pumpkin is flowering,
but no fruit yet.


  1. The Bug looks like he's thinking of some mischief! I won't start Christmas shopping for a looong time.

  2. I usually start my Christmas shopping right about now :)I do have a few books that I put away for the kids but haven't officially started yet. I need to plan this out carefully with me being forced to take furlough days and hub having to take a 2nd job. Ugh.

  3. I forgor to add... swiss chard is really good if you saute it with olive oil, a bit of butter and garlic. Cook till it breaks down a bit and then stir in some pasta and white beans. Yummy.

  4. Regarding TBR Day - better late than never. LOL

    My Christmas shopping start date varies. Sometimes I start as early as the day after Christmas but this year it'll probably be September or October before I get to it. Since I have to mail most of the gifts I give, I like to have all my shopping done by Thanksgiving.

    Enjoy your camping trip!

  5. Thanks for the shout out. And have fun camping!

  6. What a little cutie!

    I used to shop for Christmas gifts year-round. Now, I just wait till the last minute. There aren't enough people in our family left to worry about shopping early.

    I love that United Breaks Guitars video!

  7. I don't think I start Christmas shopping until November--at least. Yuck. Although, since it's been over 100 degrees outside the past several days, one of the radio stations played Christmas songs for a half-hour. It put me in a really happy mood and I'm sure I got a lot of strange looks by other drivers as I was belting out Jingle Bell Rock. :)

    Just got back from the lake--determined to finally at least make a dent in my GReader. Big ick. Hope camping went well!

  8. Glad you enjoyed the video! My guy informs me there are going to be two more, so I am looking forward to that. :)

  9. What a beautiful bug!

    Sometimes, we start Christmas shopping in the January sales. This year? not so much. Though we are planning Elliot's 4th birthday party already. Which is late November. Because of that, Christmas always feels like it sneaks up on us because the focus is so much on Elliot's birthday for such a long time. (meaning we really need to be forward-planning!)
