Friday’s Hunt v1.5 -- "E" is for ...

1. Week's Favorite:

We were very fortunate to be able to walk with our youngest granddaughter, KP, to school every day this week except for today, Friday.

I thought she was smiling when I snapped it but if she were, it was a pretty weak smile.  She was in a hurry to play her game with her friend who was about to come out of the garage ahead.

Her game is to hide behind me like no one can see her.  Her friend also plays the game and will ask, "Where is KP?"  Then KP jumps out from behind me and shouts, "Boo!"
2.  Starts with "E":
"E" is for Eating.  Yes, eating again with Jim.  No Jim Bunch this time, just me.
My menu was
 - A large cup of Maruchan Instant Lunch, Shrimp and Noodle Soup, modified (link)(29¢ at Kroger)
 - One and a half ounces of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
 - A few Saltine Crackers (about eight)
 - Seven Large Shrimp (I added another five to my soup) 
The soup has gone up from 28¢ at our Kroger but it is still a bargain.  I try to get it on sale. A lot of college kids eat it.  The only cooking involved is heating up some water.  I think a half cup or so of Frozen Peas would be a good addition besides my Shrimp.  Next time. 

Mrs. Jim isn't real fond of it because sodium is 47% of the daily requirement.  I'm not worried because my cardiologist said I could eat all I wanted, generally on my semi-annual blood checkup Sodium is always low or close to it.

I'm eating the same meal today without the cheese and crackers.  I was going to eat a left over 50¢ McDouble Cheeseburger from McDonald's also but what I had is enough.  It cost only 50¢ because with my FF's last night adding the McDouble was only 50¢ more because of the "2 Items for $2" promotion.
3. Is for Sky:

I took this petty picture for the birds in the tree.  In my picture I noticed there wasn't a cloud one in our beautiful Texas Sky.  We were walking back on the trail between our neighborhood and the next when I saw the birds in this tree.

Note the little Chickadee on the right, not sitting with the Black Birds.  When I got close enough to get a good picture, all of the birds except this little one flew off.  After they were gone, the Chickadee jumped up, branch by branch, until he was on top. 

I think he was laughing at the scaredy cat Black Birds.  That reminds me of a certain politician being afraid of one female (he doesn't like most ladies but he is married for the third time) so he boycotted the debate last night.  It was boring without him and Mrs. Jim and I both went to sleep right after the ridiculous immigration Q&A session.

Teresa of Eden Hills is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. She has three alternatives for us to post about but this one, Alphabet series, will be the one I will try to follow and post about.  - Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter."
 - The Mr. Linky address
here has others who are participating if you would to read what these folk are doing for the Friday post  - For the week of January 22 our assignment was to post on any or all of these ideas:  (1) Week's Favorite; (2) Starts with "E"; and (3) Sky; then (4) the last one, Poem for the week, is lagniappe.

Breakfast with friends ~~ Warm Heart Wednesday No. 011

My heart warms when I think of eating with friends at church.
These pictures and the poem below were from and about our churches' "Great Big Breakfast". 

Southern Cattle Grazing

They nibble, take a bite here and again
Going down by the slough, green and grassy
They'll stop, something substantial for the cud
Southern cows, babies in tow, males clumped

Happier today, fresh pasture beckons
Carry their plate, it would be very full
Mention food and they'll come from miles and miles
Southern Baptist cattle, they like to eat

Bibles are on chairs saving their places
Younger ones, a few older, have iPads
Dollar for the plate, quarters for kids
Preacher gets paid, tells their sins, Bible says

Another bite, piece of cake, coffee calls
They've grazed enough, tummies full, chew their cud
Listen to the preacher, God hating sin
Sing songs, praise the Lord, Jesus in their hearts

Do we think all cows will go to Heaven?

 - Yesterday I linked this poem and some pictures with Kerry O'Conner at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, The Tuesday Platform, which on Tuesdays is an open forum.
 - The pictures were taken 1-24-2016 at the Second Baptist Church, Houston, FM 1463 Campus (link) where we had our annual "Great Big Breakfast."  Turnout was great, we had 20 eight-foot tables of food.  
 - I hope I'm not being sacrilegious here.  Actually I do believe that all animals, God's creatures, will go to Heaven, they are eagerly waiting (Romans 8:18-25 [click here]).
