Random 5 Friday – meowtains and molehills

It’s Friday! It’s time for 5 Random thoughts from my world. Ready? Here we go!!

1.  I don’t watch much TV but I sure could relate to this:

change the tv channel

In rural Saskatchewan we had 4 channels, and one was French!

2.  Best book I’ve read this summer, hands down:

girl on the train

I couldn’t keep myself from reading it and was sorry when it ended. Yep, that’s a book hangover.

3. Peaches are ready.   I’ve eaten my fill and the rest will become a cobbler this weekend.



4.  Meeting Grandpa and others for breakfast tomorrow. Guess who’s taking home cobbler? 🙂

5. We’ve all heard the saying, “Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill” – well, here’s the cat version:

Happy Friday, peeps!   Who had the job of changing the TV channel at your house?  Read any great books lately?   Is there a cobbler in your future?

  1. There is a cobbler in my future, and it’s going to be peach. I froze most of what I got at the market last week, so now it’s time for indulgence!

  2. We didn’t change the channel much. With about 5 channels, we’d put it on cartoons on Saturday and Sunday morning until breakfast was ready, and then the TV went off. Mom was very strict about a TV time and only let us watch on weekend mornings and one hour on non-school nights. The three of us would have to agree on what program(s) we’d watch for that hour. Usually The Brady a Bunch and Partridge Family on Friday.

  3. Ha! We “got in” 4 channels, plus 2 more if the “weather was right”…and that might require some creative adjusting of the rabbit ears!

    Good thoughts, always a pleasure to read what you’re up to

    • True that – the rabbit ear adjustment was nearly a science!!

      The TV was always tuned to “Hockey Night in Canada” Saturday nights … I was always up for an Elvis movie, if I could find one that is 😀

  4. Local peaches just starting coming in this week so you are ahead of us. We had sour cherry pie last weekend. Yum! We had the arguments of who was going to change the channel. Then there was the wired remote. What a pain that was but better than getting up. Fortunately I’m not a big TV watcher or my legs wouldn’t work at all!

    • sour cherry pie? Oh my Lord, that sounds wonderful. I don’t remember a wired remote so you were far ahead of me 🙂 MJ

  5. Love your randoms! That “tv” memory is a cute one, although we didn’t have shag (or any other type of ) carpet! Marshall’s dad was a huge peach cobbler fan, but Motor Man, not so much.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. ** Guess I should have written “Marshall’s dad IS a huge peach cobbler fan”..

    Remember well changing the channel on the TV, but like Dianna, we had carpet. My husband and I both like peach cobbler, yum! Have a great breakfast tomorrow and a good weekend.

    • We had an area carpet and – at my Grandma’s house – she had a Lonnnnnnnnnnnng living room — TV console on one end, chairs on the other. Us kids would sprawl out on the floor to watch “The Wonderful World of Disney” at her house after a Sunday Supper 🙂 happy memories. MJ

  8. That’s for the book recommendation. I just picked up a Fannie Flag book and am anticipating a fun read. I know I’ll blow through it quickly and will need another soon.

    I love your utensil holder. Where can I find one like that???

    • You’re welcome – I don’t know who Fannie Flag is so I’ll have to check that out 🙂

      I love that utensil holder, too. I can’t remember the catalog I found it in but it was one of those inexpensive home decor ones, I think “Collections,etc” – everything in their catalog is <$15 🙂

      Cheers! MJ

  9. Yum! I grew up on peach cobbler, a southern dessert staple! As for TV, well, I whiled away many a hot summer afternoon watching sitcoms…Lucy and Bewitched, and who knows what else…and shelling peas and butter beans from my grandmother’s garden. That was the “chore” that we kids got stuck with, but at least we got to do it in the air conditioned den. In the hot humid summers of the south, that was a pretty good trade! ~ Sheila

    • Last summer I made a peach/blueberry cobbler that was to die for! Yes, we had green fingers many times from shelling peas and clipping the ends of the green and yellow beans :D.

      Bewitched was definitely a favorite of mine, too. NO A/C in Mom’s house but a lot of fans and some big shade trees makes it fairly manageable! MJ

  10. My dad ruled the TV when he was at home. I remember when my aunt and uncle got the first color television we knew of. I love cobbler, but never had a peach one. I tend to prefer peaches raw, not baked in dessert. Blackberries are a different story. 🙂
