Random 5 Friday on Saturday

To be precise it's time for my Random 5 Friday post. Since it's Saturday it's not really Random 5 Friday, but happily I can still be random on Saturday.

1) I don't mean to obsess, but I am so missing Google Reader. I like Bloglovin' but there are times I can't comment when I open a blog there and I get too I lazy to find the blog and comment. It's not for lack of love that I'm not around as much, but for lack of Google Reader.

2) I just got an email from the library reminding me that "Revenge Wears Prada" is due on Tuesday. What a change from the days that you had to keep track of a book's due date. My goal is not to pay late fees for my library books, and I may succeed this time.

3) Speaking of "Revenge Wears Prada..." I should have read the reviews on Amazon first. I've finished the book and it was just okay. I didn't read "The Devil Wears Prada," but I liked the movie a lot.  The plot here was very predictable, the characters weren't very nice and Meryl Streep was nowhere to be found. Happily I didn't buy it, but since my reading time could be devoted to a hundred other books, this wasn't a great choice.

4) We had another glorious fall day today. I'm treasuring every one of them. In a couple of months these days will be history, but for now it's the best.

5) I had my second bowl of butternut squash soup this season here yesterday and it was perfect. Any other squash soup devotees in the group?

It's been pretty random today, but I like to think there's something for everyone. Thanks for stopping by and take good care of yourself. Wishes for a sweet weekend!

I have never eaten squash soup. It looks very good in pictures. I saw the movie"Devil wears prada" and loved it. Just never though it good enough for another round. Hope you have a great Sunday. xoxo,Susie

Butternut squash soup is delicious! Love! Any kind of squash. My favorite kind is acorn, i think. But i could change my mind tomorrow if i try a new kind. lol

I have the same library fine goal too, and i'm doing well so far!

Butternut Squash Soup??? It's been ages since i had some . . NOW I'll have to be on the lookout.

yes, Yes! Holidays here are splendid. I really have fun - okay, I'm spoiled - because this year I am teaching in two schools . . . sharing our traditions/heritage - with the young people . . what a gift.

love & love,

Didn't see the movie or read the book, had heard it wasn't that good. Thought the first movie was great, really enjoyable. Yes, I do like Squash soup, but have not had the pleasure so far this Fall. We too have had glorious weather. Hope it continues the entire month of October...wouldn't that be wonderful!! Take care...hugs!

I enjoyed your randomness:) Have a blessed day sweet friend, HUGS!

Thanks for the tip on the book -- I didn't really see the first movie, just snippets -- didn't seem like a good fit for me.

Have never had squash soup -- should remedy that!

Have a lovely rest of your weekend Carol! xo

Here I am reading your random Friday on Sunday. I don't use readers but just follow blogs on the blogger page and sometimes those don't show up for me until the next day. Fall has really been showing off for us this past week. We've had some gorgeous days here too. I'm like you and savoring each one. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Yes!!! ... to the butternut squash soup, that is. Tho' I never enjoyed it while growing up .... for some reason when sipping it, it just feels like "home."



Thanks for the book review.

We had squash soup at Panera on Sunday. A first for me, and I liked it. I always like your photos that I can see New York city. I can't imagine how it would be to live there.
