Five Things for Friday, Including a Jaguar and a Beagle

Here's another of my Five-Things-for-Friday posts; this one is fairly light on content, but heavy on pictures (which are a more valued currency anyway, right?) Be sure to check out Heather's Five-for-Friday lists at her blog.

I saw a car very much like this one, on Wednesday, parked at the grocery store. Oh my, it was gorgeous, a Jaguar XJ8L (based on photos I found, probably around a 2000 model). If I had money to burn, I might be tempted to throw some of it at a beauty like this.

Love at first sight

A while ago, one of our guild members knit a most adorable hat, and now I've followed suit:

The cow, the moon, and a cool braid

The Cow Jumped Over the Moon

This is the Mother Goose Hat, designed by Lisa McFetridge. I love the Fair Isle design, the tassels, the cow, the braid - it is delightful! It seems a bit large for a baby,  but babies do grow, so it will fit eventually!

I made spaghetti sauce - enough for just one meal for Jim and me - from our CSA tomatoes:

It turned out pretty well, and wasn't too difficult (even for me!). I used these instructions.

Now I have visions of buying tomatoes in quantity and canning spaghetti sauce. I think I'll lie down till the vision passes.

Ah, the election. One might assume I would be a Romney fan (owing to that Mormon thing), but not so. I think there's a lot of good to Mitt Romney, but I supported Obama four years ago, and I expect I'll do so again. I'm no good at articulating my political opinions, and instead tend to be fairly low-key and quiet in these matters. I will simply say this: The more I watch and the more I hear, the more I continue to feel a kinship with the Obama and the Democratic party and its ideals.

Did you happen to see Michelle Obama's convention speech? It was one of my favorites from the two conventions.

And how about a sweet beagle face, thrown in for free?

  1. Cool list. And cool speech. (I heard almost none of them from either convention this year...) Thanks for sharing it.
