Anybody Know?

  • What happened to Friday?
  • Why my dog, Sam, feels the need to consume foreign objects?
  • Why he especially likes to do it around holidays?
  • Who will wrap all the presents for me?
  • What I will serve my guests at 5 p.m.?
  • How soon tomorrow’s sermon will be finished?
  • Whether it’s possible to knit at the same time you’re writing and wrapping and cooking and preaching and driving?

  1. You didn’t want Friday, I promise. I had it here and it was a beastly day…full of malfunctioning technology, grumpy spouses and hospital dashes with parishioners….
    In fact, it’s Friday’s fault that I too need the wrapping elf and an extra dose of sermon mojo.
    Sympathies, my friend xxx

  2. * What happened to Friday?
    I agree, you were better off missing Friday. Although it ended well for me with Sisterknits’ arrival – early!
    * Why my dog, Sam, feels the need to consume foreign objects?
    Evidently they don’t teach logic or nutrition at Doggie U. Mine does the same!
    * Why he especially likes to do it around holidays?
    He’s picking up on the stress? Mine ate part of a plastic harness buckle and some duct tape.
    * Who will wrap all the presents for me?
    Have each other person in the family (who, believe me, are not as busy as you) wrap the presents for someone who isn’t themselves.
    * What I will serve my guests at 5 p.m.?
    Um…lasagne? Chicken tortilla soup that you can make in 20 minutes? Too bad you don’t live up here, you could get a tourtiere or a chicken pie from Bisson’s. I can give you the soup recipe if you need it.
    * How soon tomorrow’s sermon will be finished?
    By midnight tonight. You need your sleep.
    * Whether it’s possible to knit at the same time you’re writing and wrapping and cooking and preaching and driving?
    Not advisable, sorry. But see the answers above about cooking and wrapping, might give you a little extra knitting time.

  3. super easy recipe for collard soup.
    1 big can of seasoned collards (or mustards or turnips)
    2 cans of white northern beans
    throw in some onions
    slice up some kielbasa, if you are so inclined.
    heat it up and serve with cornbread.
    It doesn’t necessarily sound delicious, but it is and it’s what we are eating it tonight.
    I say it’s the best thing you hung your lip on.
    🙂

  4. I’d help wrap presents! And I’d whip up some snacks for your party. Cheesehead has a a great tapenade recipe at her place. And you can do a really amazing easy bruschetta with 10 plum tomatoes, 1/4 each fresh basil and oregano, 1 garlic clove minced and olive oil till it looks right.
    And when you’re finally finished, don’t forget to write your bestseller how to book on multi tasking. Because I could sure use the advice!!!
    Merry Merry!

  5. I love your suggestions! But I have to tell you that we have a vegetarian and a vegan coming over, so there will be no kielbasa.
    Vegetarian Nachos (half without cheese) with Salsa choices
    Hummus with Pita Triangles
    Roasted Peanuts
    Cheese and Crackers (Cheese from “The Cheese Shop” in Historic Billsburg, part of a fabulous assortment of goodies that came from my brother and his family, including a Wensleydale, yum!)
    Pretzels of one kind and another
    My friend is bringing raw veggies
    We have two kinds of local beer and other drink possibilities. I guess we’re okay!

  6. No idea what happened to Friday, but I’m guessing that on Sunday, your friends are going to be thinking about some happy memories of a good dinner.

  7. Hmmmm…. not a banner day, huh. It sounds like you are feeling better. I think writing-wrapping-cooking-preaching is a little TOOO multi-tasking… even for women who pastor. 😉
    Merry Christmas!

  8. If you learn to do all that at one time, will you pass on the knowledge to me?!
    Poor Sam. He needs to realize he is a pastor’s dog. There are certain expectations – one is to be good around Christmas and Easter.
