Wednesday Thoughts

My relationship with apples might be moving too fast. Just a few days ago, I was trying to talk myself into eating one single apple. Yesterday, I ate three. Yes, three. In one day (scattered throughout the day of course). I'd forgotten how much I enjoy honeycrisp apples. But three? And what's worse is they're not in season, so they're not cheap.

I just can't find a happy medium with apples.

In other thoughts, I learned to knit! This is big news for me. My patient friend Sara took the time to teach me in a crowded Cuban restaurant last night.  I was pretty nervous about this lesson because my grandma (not the grandma I often talk about, but my other grandma, who passed away years ago) attempted to teach me once and I couldn't be taught. For some reason, the information just wouldn't click in my brain. My knitting self esteem was sort of shaken by this. But luckily, Sara stuck with it and I kind of learned! I'm pretty happy about this because now I'm one step closer to becoming a hipster.* Next step: mustache.**

Are any of you on Twitter? If you are, I hope you're following Bridger Winegar. There are several people on Twitter who crack me up daily, but none as funny and random as Bridger. I thought I'd share with you today some of my favorite Bridger tweets:

If you want to read more, click on the link on his name, above. Seriously, you will not regret it. Unless you do in which case you will. You'll find all these plus so many more, such as, "just nailed a baby with a water balloon." (I feel like I need to add, "for the low, low price of...!" I'm not trying to sell Bridger to you, I'm just trying to bring you some joy.)

You know what I realized yesterday? Christmas is in three weeks! Where did the time go? Have you done any of your Christmas shopping? I'm about half way through mine. If you're wondering what to get me, I'm running low on honeycrisps.

I feel like this was one of my more random Wednesday Thoughts. Still friends?

Happy Wednesday!

Bridger makes me laugh EVERY day without fail. "..is deers dogs" is still my favorite!! That and the Toms shoe one. So good.

The toys for tots one kills me. So funny! Keep it up with the apples. We spend @ 80 cents for a candy bar, so if comes down to 80 cents for an apple it's a good trade-off. I'm not sure how much that helps you because I know you don't eat many candy bars. But it's the "this rather than this" idea.

Good point about the candy bars! I like that way of thinking about it! :)

You may want to consider adding this fantastic apple tool to your christmas list, if it doesn't feel like your taking it to the "next" level too fast and actually owning an apple tool.

Honeycrisp are my favorite. I had almost ended my relationship with apples when I discovered them.

Did Williams Sonoma spam your comments, or just someone who is really into promoting apple tools? Anyway, I'm going to eat another apple today and do some knitting. Hilarious about one step closer to being a hipster.
