Friday fill - in:

1. The right word is peace.
2. Come in and shut the door quietly, please.
3. Up , up and away.
4. In front of the laptop is where you'll find me.
5. Ooh! What is that wooden thing?

It's a grolle, a wooden dish with pouring spouts to drink from. A grolle is served filled 2/3 with hot coffee, 1/3 eau de vie, orange or lemon peel, a bit of sugar too.Each person gets a spout assigned and the grolle is passed around after a meal or simply for a drink, as the evening goes by I assume no one cares about using the assigned spout to drink from...!! Cheers from the French Alps! (I am back, though...)
6. A cup of coffee right now is a good idea.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to browsing through old pictures (the pc wizard rescued 2 years worth of pictures (of which I didn't have a security copy) out of my virus damaged computer (yeahhhh for the wizard!), tomorrow my plans include backing up all my archives... and Sunday, I want to enjoy Spring weather!

More FFI's are found here.
