Friday Fences and Randoms

(click on photo to enlarge) Peaks of Otter Winery, Bedford

This is one of the cute inhabitants at the winery. Isn't he adorable? I love his eyes, so full of expression!

Linking with Friday Fences

And now I'm playing along with Nancy and her Random 5

1) I am reading a really fun book right now called "Goodnight Nobody" by Jennifer Weiner...it is funny. It's about a mom who lives in an uppity CT neighborhood and doesn't quite fit in. I'm only 28 pages in but she really made me laugh starting on the first page. I only read at bedtime once everyone is asleep.

2) Speaking of bedtime, I had a dream about Oprah this morning. We were at some sort of event and she was signing autographs but instead of signing "Oprah" she would sign "Nikki Nikki Nikki"...I was about to ask her why she signs her name that way when the alarm went off...booo...now we'll never know.

3) What's for dinner tonight? I'm thinking of making fried chicken. My boys LOVE fried chicken and ask for it often!

4) Speaking of unhealthy meals (see what I did there? lol)...I just started my second round of P90X on Monday. I've owned it for a couple of years and completed one full round as soon as I got it, 90 days. Since then I've just kind of maintained my weight with it by integrating some of the workouts with other workouts. But Monday I joined a challenge group and I WILL complete my second round. Today will be day 5....after I drink my coffee!

5) Our county is hosting a County Fair tomorrow that we'll go to. I was reading that it is the first time they've held a county fair in years. There will be pork chop dinners and ice cream sold by the FFA, local entertainment, tractor driving contests....cake, cookie and pie baking contests...just sounds like some wholesome, old timey fun!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Pigs are fun animals when small the big ones can be a bit much to have around though. I have done paintings of them, people like pig paintings for some reason.

  8. Coffee??? I'm relieved to know you have your priorities straight . . . (giggle) - The fair sounds fun.

    I do not know what P90X is . . (perhaps an exercise thingy???)

    I hope you have revival ice cream on hand.
    Love & Love,

    thank you for your kindness about my "point 7 shoot" attempts in the world. -g-

  10. I never have time to read....because if I have time, I'm on here reading everyone's blogs...but that sounds like a good book. Maybe when I don't work anymore I can pick up a book, huh?

    Nikki, Nikki, Nikki? lol You have really weird dreams.

    Love me some good fried chicken. What time is supper? (and let me know your address, please. Otherwise, I'll be driving around for eternity trying to find your house and will die of starvation.)

    Good for you that you lost and maintained...hope you get all fired up and continue to lose, if that is your goal. Otherwise, just be healthy....everything in moderation. That's the key to living well.

    Coffee? blech! Diet Coke or Mr. Pibb Zero? Yum!

  16. Don't hate me, but I hate pigs. I know, I know, they are cute, but the noise they make freaks me out! LOL.

    I will add that book to my read list!

  21. LOVE the nose! My dad told me this story about myself - When I was about five and went to the slaughterhouse to pick up sides of pork from a pig he had slaughtered, upon seeing the carcass, I exclaimed 'Yup, that's Buttons, I can tell by his nose!' Out of the mouth of babes, right!? Thanks Tanya, for sharing on RBH this week!

  22. Have a great time at the County Fair, Tanya! Sounds like lots of neat activities to take in.

    I was intimidated to start GWTW too. I am so glad I got over it! I am about a quarter through the it and it's a page turner. I hope you try to read it.

  29. Pork chop dinners!!!! Does that cute little piggie on this post know about THAT?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'll have to add that to my list of books I want to read- thanks for the tip. I only read at night, also. Have fun at the county fair- show time is about to start here and our local county fair will be the first pig show for the grands this season.

  31. LOTS of great facts today Tanya --
    Lovin' that little piggie nose;
    I haven't had any weird dreams since I started taking Melatonin at night. I'm actually sleeping!
    P90X -- I've heard of it, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to do it -- is it really difficult?
    We missed going to our fair this year -- I hope you get some awesome photos to share. :)

  32. Dropped over from "Signs" where i"m catching up...and your post for that was interesting (hope you find out more)...but just had to comment on this pretty piggy! He really is cute, but not exactly what I'd expect at a Winery.

  33. Cute, cute piggy! The fair sounds like a LOT of fun!
    P.S. I'm glad Ozzy was there to growl at the strange man at your door! Yikes!!

  41. Love that piggie snout! I haven't been to a county fair in years. My parents would take us to one every August. I loved seeing the animals and riding the Ferris Whee.

  42. Hey hey hey. Careful with that uppity CT thing! Jennifer Weiner grew up in Simsbury, CT, a Hartford suburb. (The teenagers in Simsbury call it Simsboring.)
