Summer Re-runs Friday Five

It’s that time of year when the only new things on television are music/dance competitions (the 21st century answer to variety shows?). Yes, it’s the season of reruns.

This week the clock turned back to last fall and the Glee kids went back to school and still got “slushied,” and Michael hired his nephew on The Office, which was not something even he would be likely to repeat.

In honor of this annual Time Warp, please share five things worth a repeat. These could be books, movies, CDs, recipes, vacations, or even TV shows.

1. TODAY’S WEATHER! Sunny, breezy, low humidity and blue skies. The high will be in the mid 70s. Oh YES. Please! (If you’ve never lived in the DC area, it’s really unheard of to have several pleasant days in a row during the summer…)

2. ANOTHER PIRATES MOVIE. We saw the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie last weekend. It was
delightful, funny, and had that magic combination of hero/evil enemy, love interest, desert isles and a good bit of swashbuckling. And Johnny Depp. Gotta love him.

3. ANOTHER HARRY POTTER MOVIE. We are waiting for the last installment coming this summer. We’ve all
read the books here (multiple times!) and while the departure from Rowling’s text is annoying, we can endure with a good bit of fantasy and wizard dueling. And don’t forget Quidditch!

4. NEW AND IMPROVED BANANA NUT BREAD. I have my grandmother’s banana bread recipe and it really is
hard to beat. Except that there are certain folks who don’t like the raisins and nuts which are folded in. I recently added a cup of chocolate chips to the batter. It was proclaimed outstanding. (And it makes the bread taste more like “Banana Split Bread” too. I am thinking about entering it in the county fair competition in August. It’s THAT good! (What? You want the recipe? It’s here!)

5. BABY BUNNEHS! Oh man. they are terminally cute. So tiny. Such big eyes. And of great interest to the humans and felines in the household. Believe it or not, they have not bothered my flowers. But they have scoured our lawn for dandelions and clover blossoms!


  1. Oh baby bunnies, we have a ton of them in our yard…so cute. and baby squirrels too…

    We too are awaiting the final Harry Potter, and plan to see Carribean next week.

    Enjoy the awesome weather while it lasts….


  2. I second the weather request! Here in the midwest we have had warm-and-cloudy give way to cold-and-cloudy which gave way to stormy-and-gross until finally we have had three days with at least half the day being awesome–sunny and warm and not too humid. praise the lord! hoping we both get a repeat!


  3. Wish we’d get such nice weather, but that won’t happen until we go traveling north this summer. I, too, can hardly wait for the next HP movie!
