My Friday Finds . . .

who thinks the sun rises and sets on them,
someone who delights in their existence,
and loves them unconditionally.

In The English Kitchen today  . . .  School Cafeteria Pizza.  This is fabulous!  I gave half to Cindy to take home as she was working yesterday and I thought it would mean one less thing for her to do!  Really delicious and the crust was so simple to make! 

I figured out what those worms must have been in my dream. I got the cats a new toy this week and there is a silky worm thing that hangs off the end of this fishing pole. They really love it and it has googly eyes. I think that must have manifested itself in my dream.  You never know where these things are going to come from!

I hope that you have a wonderful Friday!  Whatever you get up to, don't forget!
