Fridays Feast 159

Using only one word, how does grocery shopping make you feel?


What is your favorite part about the season of Autumn?

Bearing in mind that we are going into Spring and Autumn is but a distant memory....

I adore Autumn - our Summers are intensely hot and I long for that first Autumny day. What I love so much about Autumn is the freshness in the air, the air feels clean and has a certain fresh smell to it - I wish I could bottle it!

Have you ever had any bad experiences online?

No I haven't, other than the days on dial-up, when every page took about 100 years to download ;-)

Main Course
Name three things that make you happy daily.

Family, faith and food

What one household cleansing or organizing item would you not want to be without?

My new top loading washing machine is my new best friend. For a family of four we produce an enormous amount of washing. I sometimes wonder if our dirty laundry doesn't breed as it lurks in the washing basket! My new top loader is huge and takes care of all the washing in one load, first thing every morning. I love it!

Just wanted to say I love the smell of autumn air too.
Especially more so after i quit smoking. I'd forgotten how great the fall smells and when I first smelled it again I was in love with that season.

Our Summers are also terribly hot (sometimes get into the 50degrees Celsius range! Nice to see another Southern Hemispherian amidst the Friday Feasters by the way :)
Great feast - especially enjoyed your main course.
Thanks fo sharing your feast and joining in my feast. Hope you have a great weekend :)

I chose my washing machine too. What a great invention!

I remember dial up. I would do chores between page changes. Happy those days are in the past!

Happy feasting!

Your automns sounds better then mine ! Here the trees are strip teasing it's cold and humid and announces winter so I hate it ! Summer is already bad here, it rains very often and sunny days you can count on your fingers. Especially this year !

Love the three "F" answers for your feast. And your dessert? With four, that's truly a blessed invention, isn't it?

I really enjoy your Friday Feast ... so nippy and witty. And I am with you on the autumn, that is my favorite season, too, and it is just around the corner here in New England. As much as I feel at odds with this place, I DO love it during the fall, it really is quite spectacular in this part of the world.

Loved your feast. Wonder if "laundry breeding" is what causes that one lonely sock to appear. Maybe we just don't give that laundry long enough to breed the second one.

2017 in review

2017 has been a strange year.  I started the year with great intentions and some firm goals in mind, but somehow I stalled quite early on in...
