Friday The 13th Randomness

 
1. It's Friday the 13th! Just another day to me. How about you?
 
2. It's finally warming up, plus 4 today, but I am still freezing!
 
3. Friday is the day I bake bread (not in a bread machine). This week I am making cheddar onion bread, whole wheat bread, and pretzel buns!
 
 4. A busy week ahead. My granddaughter (Beep) will be spending her days with me next week. It's March Break (school holidays). Lot's of Canadians go South for March break. Since I am not a hot weather lover, I've always stayed right here.
 
5. I have an Australian Bearded Dragon (Tucker) as a pet. He will be 15 years old next month. Although "beardies" are desert dwellers, he really enjoys a bath now and again.
 
Bath time in the sink for Tucker. Look at that big smile on his face!

Watch out, Karen! I'm coming to your house just for the bread! Friday the thirteenth is a good day for Miriam and me. We met on Fridat the thirteenth and got married on Friday the thirteenth . There are a whole lot of other happy thirteens in our history too.

#1 Any day the ends in a "Y" is a good day.
#2 I think that 30 something sounds warmer than +4
#3 I can smell the bread now.
#5 Such a cuddly little devil.

Happy birthday Tucker, have a nice bath.

Nancy J said...

Home made bread, Tucker in his bath, I have to smile at that, is he so tame you can handle him easily? Enjoy Beep's stay.

Ida said...

1. Same for me although it's fun to note that we had "back-to-back" Friday the 13ths as there was one in Feb. too.
2. That's still mighty cold.
3. Yum on the bread.
4. Spring break here isn't until April.
5. I love your Lizard. He is so cool looking.

My birthday is on the 13th (not this month) so I've never taken stock in the "13 is an unlucky number" superstition. You have a very unusual pet!

Elephant's Child said...

Tucker is gorgeous.
Love the smell of baking bread. Comfort smell at its best.
Good luck with your busy week.

Karen,

March 13th is my Grandma's birthday and the day she passed away.

Hope you get some warm weather soon. It's amazing how nice weather helps the soul.

I haven't baked bread forever. I love making my own and need to start that again.

Have a wonderful week with Beep.

Marie said...

Your bearded dragon is adorable! I had no idea they lived that long. My grandson would be so happy to have one for a pet!

I'm impressed with your Friday bread baking! Wow! By the way, my husband and I started "going steady" in October on Friday the 13th back in 1967! We've been married 45 years...so it's not a bad day. :-)

What a unique pet! Have a fun week with Beep!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love your dragon. I have a couple of his relatives in my post. Does Murfee like him?

Have fun with Beep; hooray for spring break.

And e-mail me a slice of that cheddar-onion bread will ya please.

Happy weekend to you.

Hello, the homemade bread does sound yummy! Tucker is cute! Thank you so much for linking up, so sorry I am late commenting! Have a great time with Beep!

Andaje said...

Homemade bread is the best - and cheaper + you know what the ingredients are. I bring bread everyday to work for my lunch (baked with olives, dried cranberry, pumpkin and sunflower seeds)

And the 13th..... well I born on the 13th so I am one of those having 13 as my lucky number :)
