She can't help it

Hi everybody, howdy followers!!

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 it
She can't help it, the girl can't help it
I'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 ...
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


  1. I'm not sure I get the photo on foods, but I can see the point of those scraps! Yes, color galour - what fun.

  2. LOL...I totally understand the buying thing....can't help it....

    I take pictures of my food when we go on a trip. But I don't usually put them on facebook. LOL

  3. hahaha - love your dinner pic. Is that a yellow plastic plate? I've only done the food-foto thing once. Went to a plush DO in Germany on business and took a pic of the dessert. It was fully a work or art! It ended up so out of focus that it was useless - oh well.

  4. She SOLD you the scraps? I have some I might pay someone to take off my hands.
    Pictures of food? My eyeballs get fat just looking.

  5. food photos -- guilty.

    Those are some yummy scraps...

  6. Good going on getting hold of those scraps. You just don't know when they will come in handy.

    Now to the taking pictures of your dinner and posting on facebook, maybe its just me but I find that rather rude to the person you are suppose to be enjoying dinner with.

  7. I know how you feel. I have tons of fabric and scraps but I'd probably have done the same thing!
