My Quick Friday Five


1. My in-laws are visiting from Florida. My MIL brought me a very special surprise. For those who might remember my quest to find a certain kind of whipped peanut butter in my area, I present to you:

*let the happy dance commence*

2. When you have guests in town (for three weeks) it's hard to get motivated to work (instead of play), especially since I work from home. *sigh* Regardless, my jewelry orders and newspaper deadlines await!


3. After hearing Rachele's query story (on yesterday's post), I am feeling a little more settled about this whole querying process. I am refreshing my email every 20 minutes now, instead of every five. It's an improvement.

4. I look forward to my weekend plans that include a certain six-year-old's party, a belated Father's Day brunch, and boating. Weather, you had better hold up!


5. I hope everyone has a GREAT WEEKEND as well!

LOL about 20 vs 5 min. Yes, it is an improvement. Just an amusing one. :)

Have a great weekend!

And btw, have you ever heard of Peanut Butter & Co? They make AMAZING peanut butter. I'm addicted to their Cinnamon Raisin flavor.

mmmmmmmmmm

I love creamy, whipped peanut butter.

lucky.

I will warn you against the natural stuff. I actually still buy natural peanut butter (bc it's better for you) but it's stiff and there is all this oil on top that you have to mix in. lol

Have a great weekend yourself!!

Pamela said...

That IS an improvement.... Enjoy your visit, the birthday party, the boat, the brunch, and most of all the PEANUT BUTTER in all its whipped glory. Sounds YUM!

Enjoy your weekend with the fam, and let the refresh button relax. It will all work out...eventually.

Jen said...

I love peanut butter!!! Especially that brand!! Woohoo!!!

Good luck being a little bit more productive, when people visit you and are on vacation you find yourself joining in on their fun, so I can relate!!!

Good job on the 20 minutes... that's not easy, but still an amazing feet!

Have fun this weekend!

Refreshing your email every 20 minutes is definitely an improvement! (I tend to refresh mine every 5 even without waiting for replies!)

Happy Weekend! I hope you'll have lots of fun and still get work done. :)

Hummmm...peanut butter!!! Yummy!

Medeia Sharif said...

Twenty minutes is a huge improvement. You brought me back to my querying days. I checked my email obsessively.

All Women Stalker said...

Oh boating! Sounds like fun. And that peanut butter looks soooo good. Been looking for that particular brand in my city, by the way. Haha. Big fail, so far:)

Lourie said...

I remember that!! Haha. Did you get a lot??? haha. Have a great weekend.

Debbie said...

How nice to have her bring you that special peanut butter!

Rachele Alpine said...

The weekend was always a crazy time for me when querying (and now when subbing) because I liked to pretend that agents/editors use that time to read manuscripts and maybe I'll hear something on Monday. I'm nuts, I tell you! I'm impressed by refreshing every 20 minutes...I'm crossing my fingers that one of those hits of the refresh button brings good news!

K. M. Walton said...

Oh...you know 'the email' is going to happen. Believe it. Own it. It's coming your way.

p.s. 100% yay for whipped PB.
p.s.s. I'm off to read Rachele's query story. I need some improvement too...

Little Ms J said...

Enjoy your whipped peanut buttery goodness! We used to eat Peter Pan when I was a kid. Well, not him specifically, but you know...
