Friday Five!

I’m taking up the widespread blogging tradition of the Friday Five list.  This decision has nothing to do with my long jobby-job “to do” list, or my plans to drink a bottle of wine with a friend this evening, I swear.

In no particular order, here are the five things that I think are made of AWESOME this week:

1)  Hand-made Fabulousness: My very good friend, L.Anne, is making me a custom-made Booty Bag messenger bag and a Booty Buddy bag as I write this.  We went shopping for the fabric yesterday.

You’re jealous, aren’t you?  Well, you should be.

2)  DVR.  Otherwise, I would never see any show.  Ever.

3) All you can eat “homemade” soups, at least 12 varieties, for $7.95.  We eat a LOT of soup.  I just found out that this local phenom is franchising, so if you’re very smart and independently wealthy, you should buy a franchise.  Invest in soup!  Otherwise, if you’re like the rest of us, keep it in mind whenever you’re in Charleston.

4) She’s smart, funny, and she has a lot of good information for new writers.  I am somewhat addicted to her vlogs.  Just go watch.


5)  Good (and handy) friends.  I am lucky enough to have the kind of friends who are not only handy, but willing to pitch in and help fix things when you not only can’t do it yourself, but don’t have the money to hire someone to make major repairs.  One friend just dropped off his super-long ladder, and another is coming over this weekend to help us exclude the Demon Squirrels from Hell from our house for good.


About Sarah Familar-Ragsdale

Sarah Familar-Ragsdale is a writer and poet, a shameless multi-tasker, and a lover of good wine, lyrical prose, foot rubs, adrenaline rushes, and sweet tea. She can't remember a time when she didn't want to be a writer, and some of her favorite childhood memories involve an old IBM typewriter and stacks of onionskin paper. Her professional life has followed a meandering path - she has been a licensed Charleston tour guide, a metaphysical bookstore owner, and a minister to an eclectic spiritual community. These days, when she isn't trying to wrap up her on-going novel projects or making attempts to seduce the muses of poetry, she follows her other great soul calling as a certified Life Coach and spiritual mentor. Sarah lives at the edge of an under-tended garden in Charleston, SC with the love of her life and their two fur-children, Chaucer and Stella Maris.
