Three things to be happy about:
(1) Smuckers jam
(2) retreating to your lair
(3) Chia pets
Did anybody ever have one of those chia pets that actually worked? I remember getting one years and years ago that started growing, then the little shoots just dried up and died. No amount of water would bring it back, so I think the problem was with the base it was made of.
At our guild meeting Saturday I was reminded of the opening lyrics to the Little Richard song
She can't help it, the girl can't help itI'm trying really hard to cut down on my fabric purchase (been doing great so far!) but Cynthia had a bag of scraps to sell... and ...
She can't help it, the girl can't help it
well, to be honest it was just too tempting! "She can't help it, the girl can't help it!"
When you say the "S" word it gets my attention, so I went ahead and bought it - just look at all those great scraps! There were a lot of batik pieces in the bag, all those great colors made it just too tempting to pass up. I know y'all understand how it can be...
Regarding the renovations next door, the house was purchased by a development company which is planning to flip it. According to a rep I spoke with at their office, they're "putting a new house in an old shell," so that's why there's been so much demolishing and rebuilding going on. It shouldn't be much longer now, they started the first Monday in December so they're going into their 11th week. Probably another two weeks or so.
On News 4 the other morning they were answering questions from viewers, and this one got my attention - One person said his fiancee had the habit of taking pictures of her food when they went out to dinner and posting it on facebook, then constantly checking to see if there were comments. He wanted to know if he was unreasonable to ask her not to do it. You know I had to laugh! The general consensus was that it was okay if she took pictures, but she should wait til she got home to post it.
With that being said, here's a picture of the salad I had for dinner at Golden Corral, after guild meeting Saturday ;o)
Sew forth and sew on
