First Five Fragments for Friday

1. Last night, I made mini meatloaves. Mick called them meat cupcakes, but he liked them. What would you miniaturize just for fun?

2. Camille, age 17 months, eats meat only if there’s ketchup on it. What can you swallow only when it’s covered in something else?

3. Why is ticking so much louder in the dark?

4. It delights me when I hear someone say something about the lens through which we view something….that acknowledgement that we do all have different lenses, different experiences, different ways of validating our world.

5. Death in October – the tomato vines look exhausted with their wilted, blackened leaves while the birch trees still look like an explosion of color as if they refuse to go quietly. I know which way I want to go out.

And your fragments are….?

Happy Friday. Have you decided on a Halloween costume yet?


  1. 1 – Mini-soups! a recipe that makes less than two gallons would be nice. I know, I know, freezer…
    2 – My eldest always had issues with the textures of foods. And he was a ketchup-a-holic too.
    3 – The ticking's not louder, the dark is quieter. 🙂
    4 – I try not to get stuck on telephoto lens, but it's hard.
    5 – Color explosions can be misleading – at least with black you know it's the finale.

    Halloween costume – a Jedi as usual (I have the light saber.) Or a member of Byzantine royalty. Don't ask.


  2. I am always taken aback to read your Friday fragments on Saturday. And it is now latish Saturday.
    1: Rather than miniatures I tend to cook up big – then freeze for later, lazier days.
    2: As a child I would not eat toast unless it had home-made mayonaisse on it. I am too lazy to make the mayonaisse – but I still like it on toast.
    3: The dark is velvet soft, all the better to snuggle into.
    4: Differing perspectives are somthing I love about the blogosphere. That and the affirmations made and received.
    5: Everything is exploding into life here – and I have many things I succumbed to from a garden catalogue (garden porn) to plant this weekend. Meaning tomorrow.
