Friday Fill-In

1. The last band I saw live was: Jesse Winch, his talented brother, and another really good Irish-music musician, at a fundraiser where Pat Garvey also played, and bagpipers, I should look up which group.

2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is it being over (albeit, I'm thankful for E and his family welcoming me so; M will be away, maybe I'll see her in her running race, however).

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is postponed, per usual, until the paycheck closest to Christmas, most likely, with some of it in the after-Christmas sales, really, as sigh, M's not with me this year.

4. Thoughts of Oireachtas practice schedules and related details fill my head.

5. I wish I could wear a bikini again (not since I was 42 oh well sigh).

6. Bagpipes are awesome, sometimes haunting, sometimes celebratory, the large kind or the small kind, uillean pipes I *think* those are called. Oh, yeah, and best when played by guys with kilts on ;)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to no set plans yeah, tomorrow my plans include a ceili that E and I will take two of his grandsons to, and Sunday, I want to see M's half-sister, Si, in her play but who knows if I'll be able to or not!

This is the post with the original inspiration for Friday Fill-In's: but I found it on CW@sMom's blog here:


  1. You can't wear a bikini? Last time I saw you, you could.

  2. Wow, you know, I honestly can't remember the last band I saw. And I'm definitely with you on the last paycheck before Christmas. I actually LIKE shopping on Christmas Eve.


  3. Happy Thanksgiving to You........

    Ahh the sounds of the bagpipes. They always bring tears to my eyes, and I'm not what I would consider a tear sort of person. But, and especially, when my Mother plays her bagpipes either alone, or with the band, I can't help myself. I choke up~~

    Thinking of you today,

  4. happy thanksgiving!
