Wednesday Wonderings ...

Why is it that even though time seems to be flying by, it's still an awfully long time between paydays?

Where do television executives come up with some of the lame new TV shows that are out there? I tried watching the new Monday night comedy "Accidentally on Purpose" on CBS and ended up turning the channel it was so bad. Execs think that show will last more than one season? Seriously?

Why do the directions for making coffee say to use two rounded tablespoons of coffee for each 6-ounce cup? Does that not sound like a lot of coffee for one cup to anyone else but me?? It sounds to me like it would be so strong your spoon would be standing up straight in the cup!

Why on earth have I been having some hellacious heartburn on and off for the past week? Is this some other fun aspect of getting older? I never used to get heartburn ever and now it seems to rear up if I even just think about it. Pepcid AC has become my new best friend.

Why does Autumn seem to be the shortest season of the year? Winter and Summer seem to go on for quite some time - especially Winter - but Spring and Autumn seem to get the short end of the calendar stick. This is especially not fair when it comes to Autumn as that is my very favorite time of year.

Why haven't you placed an order for some really, really delicious baked goods from Fleur de Lis Catering yet? There's a great Blogger sale going on now that features 20% off the total order, excluding shipping, which means you can get great treats like this -

Mags' cupcakes

- at an even better price. And trust me, they're worth every penny!


  1. I'm not sure that is enough coffee.

    and I am sorry the TV execs cancelled "Life"

  2. autumn and spring are only short because of where you live!!!

    winter is short here...autumn rather long. :-)

  3. I wonder who drinks a 6 oz. cup of coffee?

    Fall has been found in the GA Alps finally. It is 44 outside right now...

  4. I don't use tablespoons to make coffee. I use a coffee scoop, which is 1/8 of a cup. One scoop per 3 cups of coffee, or 1/2 cup per 12 cup pot.

    Which is actually not 12 cups. It's a crazy system, isn't it?

    Mmmm. Cupcakes.

  5. I just ordered some peanutbutter balls! I love them!!!

  6. Now you see why we don't have television.

    That's the right about of coffee. Yummy.

    Get to a doctor if you are having heartburn. It could be acid reflux and they have medication for that. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

  7. I can't tell you why I haven't ordered any scrumptious baked goods. Those cupcakes look yummy.

    I love autumn too..let's hope we don't get too much rain in CT to knock the leaves off the trees before they get all colorful and pretty.

    I need to catch up again with your posts, Duchess Linda.

    Have a good Wednesday.

  8. 2 spoonfuls of coffee per cup? That's way too much!

  9. Over here, they usually show a series right to the end even though it's awful.

  10. Thank you Linda Loo. :)

    I do make my coffee with 2 rounded tablespoons. I fill it up to the 4-6 cup line with water. I'm not sure if that's right, but it comes out OK.

    I like my coffee strong and dark... then I "candy it up" with flavored creamer... I know... what's the point?

  12. Ymmmm. Flavored creamers make drinking coffee much more fun!
    Lisa's goodies look wunnerful. We're on a money diet right now, darn it all to heck. I want to send one of those friendship cakes...


Thanks for visiting!
