27 September 2008

It's the coffee shop blogger. I went from Borders to Starbucks. After this it will be home alone. Bonnie and I met at Borders. Nice! When she left I waffled back and forth (how did the word 'waffle' get in there?) with swimming or Starbucks. Starbucks won.
My view:

It's been a gray and rainy day. Fine with me. I've been inside all day. My weekend doesn't start till 3:00 on Saturday and I had no plans to do anything outside afterward. Sorry if you did and got rained on.

I'll make the crust for the Banana Creme Pie tonight. I'll make the rest on Monday to bring to the relatives on Tuesday for Rosh Hashanah. They've never had my pie. They're in for a treat, if I do say so myself. I can't wait for a piece! I have a long weekend ahead. I'll be leaving at 7:00 AM tomorrow for a hair show in Ocean City, MD. I'll be driving with my bosses and Pattie, a new, very funny co-worker. We'll be staying at a client's home, a generous client who offered it to us at no charge. We'll spend the day at the convention center, then the night, and leave early afternoon for the drive home on Monday. It's about 2 1/2 hours away. A few co-workers will be there too. It'll be fun. Then I'm off on Tuesday for the holiday. I don't know if I've ever mentioned that I'm Jewish. I'm a bad Jew. It's just the way I was raised. We never went to synagogue. We only joined so my brother could get Bar Mitzvahed. For me, being Jewish is all about the the traditions, and the food. And being with relatives for the holidays. I'm a Jew who celebrates Christmas big time. For those of you who didn't know me during the holiday season, you'll see what I mean. I just love the decorations and the festivity of it all. I leave no surface un-Christmased.

That said, I better head homeward. I need to stop at the store for ingredients. I need to eat. I plan to read blogs tonight, so look for a hi from me.
Rusty garden guy says hi too

I was just thinking the other day how much fun it was blogging at Christmas time was last year. I was thinking of your posts and the beautiful decorations.

Have a great time at the convention, sure sounds like it will be fun!

Your pie sounds good. And I look forward to seeing your Christmas decorations. I love that rusty guy.

Rusty guy is very cute! Is that the Banana Creme Pie you posted a while back?? I made a recipe of yours once and it was sooo good, but I can't remember if it was banana creme pie or not. Man I have a lousy memory!!!

I love blogging at Christmas too...and love when people post their decorations.

Cheryl, that's very interesting that you are Jewish.

Jamie said...
