Willy Nilly Friday 5

Willy Nilly Friday 5

1. Oops! I lost Friday! Have you seen it? I ran a week’s worth of errands that afternoon; when I finally sat down to read your blogs, I forgot to post my own! 

2. Hubby skipped town went to visit his dad. 

3. Thursday, I noticed my computer had an update, so I tried to run a backup to my external hard drive before downloading, but they refused to communicate. I found the drive manual, logged on to website support and followed the troubleshooting steps. They still refused to renew their friendship, so I did some research and went to Best Buy (one of the stops on Friday) and got a new WD My Passport for Mac backup drive. I was happy to see it finished a little after 6:00 this morning (Saturday). 

4. I worked outside until it thundered (a good time to stop). I intended to clean the bathrooms and my desk today, but did the yard and laundry/birdseed/storage/recycling room instead–even managed a load of laundry in the process. I put dinner in the crockpot, a recipe I found in the AARP newsletter:  Quinoa and Summer Squash Casserole. The ingredients included chopped onion, tomatillos, and tomatoes, which the new food processor handled speedily. I just found a recipe for Pear-Quinoa Salad on there–will have to try it! 

5. Since discovering Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee Creamer, I’ve been looking for new ways to use it. I have resisted putting it on my breakfast cereal (so far). My latest favorite iced tea is made with Stash Raspberry and White Decaf Tea, a splash of DaVinci Raspberry Syrup (sugar free) andIMG_1390 Bailey’s creamer. I filled the large Tervis tumbler to take with me on errands. 

No link-up to Tanya’s blog for this week–yet.

  2. 1) lol Friday escaped me too. You definitely have been a busy blogging buddy. Thanks for the visit and the wonderful comments.
    2) I hope your hubby had a nice visit with his Dad.
    3) Great save on the pc. It’s frustrating when our pc’s act so contrary.
    4) I choose yard-work over housework too. Crock pot meals are the best. So much easier than messing up an entire kitchen. I love the liners that make clean up a breeze.
    5) What an interesting way to use coffee creamer. Sounds like you’ve gone gourmet on your drinks. I bet they’re delicious.
    I hope your weekend was a good one!
    🙂

  4. What a delightful drink! Looks SO refreshing. You lost Friday? I’m not surprised. Fridays are slippery, and yours was bound to get away from you. Busy, busy, busy. Blessings to you, Patti…
