What in the world to put as a heading when it’s just a bunch of mish mash of things….I guess Hodgepodge is good as it gets.
Two days ago I was playing around with my camera and had the camera card out – but not realizing it I went to view photos and the only ones that showed up were on the camera’s internal memory – and what to my surprise were photos of our neighbors from Christmas Eve day when they brought over their traditional tray of home baked cookies! I had wondered why I couldn’t find those pictures on any of the files before….so I got them off quickly!!!
I’ve told this story before that the dad and 5 daughters are the cookie bakers, mom doesn’t like baking. And they treat all the neighbors to a cookie tray every Christmas.
Oh and then putting the camera card back in the little gold thingy that slides up and down to lock the card…BROKE OFF…well thank goodness I had just downloaded all the newest photos so none lost.
I purchased a new one immediately and didn’t pay attention to the size…well I went from a 2 GB to a 32 GB…lol It says I can store up to 25 thousand photos – Not a chance!!!!
Yesterday Doug went to a golf outing the whole day and evening – and shortly after he left I heard this horrible scratching and clawing in the downspout by the screen room next to the kitchen…thought it might be a bird on the gutters – heard it again a few minutes later on the other side of the screen room. Well by then I knew it was a chipmunk but for the life of me I could not figure out how he got in there because there are screens over the gutters.
This went on for hours! He’d scoot from one side to the other because they connected UNDER THE SCREEN ROOM and under the driveway – we had the tubes buried and they run into a drain that runs underground to the back of the house…so I didn’t know what to do and finally I got a crow bar and got the lid off the drain, put a board next to the drain hole with some peanut button on it and waited. Within 10 minutes he must have smelled the peanut butter or maybe saw daylight at the end of the tunnel…really he did! And I saw him pop his head up from the board and climb out! Gave my heart a good feeling knowing he wouldn’t be stuck in there till he died.
Like I said in the title…this is a hodgepodge!
Being Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were upon us it got me looking through some photos last week and I came across this one of my Mother and Father.
It’s dated Memorial Day 1936…Dad was 20, Mom was 17. Goodness they were so young! I always thought my dad looked rather like a movie star!
But now for the good stuff….
Yesterday I received a wonderful package…it was the wool I ordered from Margie of Hungry Hook Primitives
I also ask for continued prayers for Margie as she is still not feeling well and spends most of her days in bed with so much pain.
She is asking to hang in there and don’t give up on her and her blog…she is still selling wool and doesn’t want to loose her customers so if you buy wool from Margie – she’s still there, just needing some time.
When I opened it up I saw this green metal object…oh no! She didn’t!
Yep…Margie said there was a surprise in the box and you guessed it…
A WOOL CUTTER.
She received a new one from her son for Mother’s Day and sent me her old one.
My heart was beating so hard…not only from the sight of seeing it but from the generosity of this dear, dear friend…who is hurting so badly right now and still had time to think of her friend! A thousand times THANK YOU Margie
And this Teal and Taupe check wool…just because she thought I would love it…well ya!!
She got my wool just perfect in dying – the Reds are just perfect…
lots of Brown in them.
And a sweet little sample pack of her wools/colors – cute idea.
Oh happy girl I am!!!
Bye Bye and have a great rest of the week and weekend.
We will be going to Darren’s on Saturday to celebrate
Miranda 1 year and Aidan 5 year birthdays
