Happy Dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday. The girls have their own slightly Easter related post today…
Yesterday was Thomas Jefferson’s birthday. I wonder how he would feel about us celebrating more than two centuries after his birth? The world, especially the USA, is definitely a better place because he lived, but I’m not at all sure he’d like everyone honoring his birthday. What do the other amateur Jefferon scholars think?
I also couldn’t resist making sure you’ve seen this Peeps wreath. I am no fan of the sugary creations that now are formed into shapes and dyed different colors to mark virtually every holiday or season known in marketing, but I am still pondering making a wreath out of them. Would the birds that hang out on our front porch attack it?
Well! WordPress and/or Comcast just ate a significant chunk of my post. Crazy, that… I guess here ends the Peeps babble. There’s a tutorial in the link above or you can click on the photo.
We’re also still celebrating Christmas. I was able to upload the photos from my phone while driving into work this morning. Luckily, there are a few stoplights and stopsigns in podunk! Hem.
Here are the goodies from Ann! There’s some yummy Gnomespun fiber , snarkly little cocktail napkins, because Ann knows I carry off-season, silly cocktail napkins in my League bag. Don’t judge; you never know when you’re going to need a little napkin! The little cream-colored sack on the right is Beekman soap. More yum.
Last, but hardly least is the book Knit Your Own Dog! I’ve wanted this book since the first time I heard about it from a friend abroad. There’s the Jack Russell on the cover, and there’s a basset in there too. There are 25 different breeds represented in the table of contents. They include a PWD and a Scottie, since we know a couple of our best blog readers will want to know.
Thank you for another spectacular package, Ann. That’s actually my Thankful Thursday moment; I’m blessed to have friends who truly know me well and whose gifts NEVER fail to delight me.
Last but hardly least, I have to thank Dawn for the Stylish Blogger Award love. I received the award earlier this year, so I’m not going to pass it along again to anyone specifically, but we’re all stylish bloggers, so if you want to share 7 things about yourself, consider yourself tagged.
Are there seven more things I could share about myself? Gosh, I don’t know. Ask Ann… She knows me so well…
I ALWAYS get the same thing when I eat at/from Sticks. Ann and I kinda’ founded our “in person” friendship there, and that’s where Tuesday’s lunch came from. Lambie sammie with the cilantro-lime sauce and an order of fries, please!
My new TV passion is Charmed. I feel I might have mentioned that before, but…
It seems I gravitate to tealish-bluish handbags.
I want these sandals just because they’re called Sissy.
I don’t like necklaces much, but I love a scarf around my neck.
I don’t have a favorite color. It changes from day to day, season to season.
On that note, I’m finding myself drawn to the corals that are so hot right now. Yes, I know coral is nearly orange…
How ’bout sharing something I don’t know about you in your comment?
