Get Yo Frag On!


And since it's Friday, it's time for Friday Fragments! That wonderful day of the blog week where you can throw your one-liners and single memorable moments all together, for a post full of fragments.

Not that you can tell, but I'm beginning to really love Friday Fragments. 

So, thanks to Unknown Mami for hosting!

Frag #1
So, Sunday we had a barbeque at our house with hubby's family and I made this Kale salad that was delish! I've never made it before, but wanted to make something healthy. 

I was so happy it came out good and so proud of it, I was all, "So, did you taste the Kale salad?" "Did you like the Kale salad?" What did you think of the Kale salad?" "Wasn't the Kale salad good?" "Have you ever had Kale salad?" How did my Kale salad taste?" "Enough about me, let's talk about my Kale salad." "Do you want to choke me now with my Kale salad?"

I was quite obnoxious, I'm sure. By the way, did you know you should massage your Kale? I'm certain that's why the salad was so good. Because obviously, massaged Kale is going to taste better than stressed out Kale.

Anyhoo, if you want to make it, you chop up some Kale, sprinkle some salad oil, lemon and a little salt on it, and massage it for a couple minutes. Then....k, know what? I don't feel like remembering the recipe. I'm really just trying to get this blog post up. Google "Massaged Kale salad" and it will come up. It's super easy, healthy, and delish! Try it!

Did you try it yet?

How about now?

No? K. Moving on.

Meanwhile, my sister is busy getting ready for our family camping trip coming up in July. She's a planner, that one. She's been texting me helpful tips like where tents are on sale, where camp tables are cheapest, the current temperature at the campground where we're going, and all sorts of other helpful, but mildly distracting things, while I'm at work.

She sent me this gem the other day:

Egg cartons and dryer lint?? She obviously has too much time on her hands.

My hubby says the best quotes. I call them "Fred-isms". He was having a tough week and I texted to see how his day was going and he says:

"Today is a good-day island in an ocean of crap-days."

That should so be on a poster!

Frag #4
So, I think I've mentioned a time or two that my hormones are a little whacked right now. I'm generally a calm, even-keeled person, but lately, I can get damn irritable. Add 110 degree heat to the mix (which we normally don't get until July, I might add) and I'm downright volcanic!

I start out fine in the morning, all optimistic and ready to tackle my day. Then it's like, all the little irritating  customers co-workers annoyances that happen during the day boil together in a stew of frustration and by the end of the day, I'm tired, hot and crabby as hell. And I have heartburn.

I made a little cartoon so you can truly understand the extent of this problem:

Oh yeah, I'm a real peach to be around by 5:00.

Actually, the word bubbles are more like thought bubbles. I keep all the mean, vile thoughts inside.

Then I just sigh alot.

Might explain the heartburn.

So yeah. That's my week. Thanks for indulging my fragments.

Hope you have a great weekend!

If you want to link up your frags too, head on over to Unknown Mami and link up!

Is your sister bringing an axe to chop wood too?
I've found campgrounds not too nature wild these days (some of campers might get wild so beware).
Suggest on those bad work days - keep some of that wonderful kale salad ready for arrival at home.

My husband used to be a master fire maker. He lit toilet paper rolls on fire and they became an instant torch. But you'd better make sure you have some extra rolls around for the important stuff.

I camped in a tent.....once.....that's all it took. I would look like the end of your cartoon at 8 a.m. if I was in a tent! But.......I do hope you all have fun!

Your frags were great and I enjoyed reading!

I camped in a tent.. once … then made my husband buy a camper. I was not meant to live on the rustic side.
I enjoyed your humor and your frags!
Happy weekend.

The egg carton and dryer lint has me spell-bound!!

In my younger days, when I had kids at home before they grew up and had kids of their own, we went camping in tents and trailers. Now, my idea of roughing it is to go into a hotel lobby without a reservation!

Love the cartoon and your sister is out of camping control.

Hilarious about your sister and the camping preparations! I am so last minute about everything but I have a friend like your sister and when she describes all her well thought-out plans to me I just stare at her all confused wondering what language exactly she is speaking!
