Peanut and Mom are sick… the annoying, coughing, runny nose, head-cold kind of sick. We are not good company. In fact, Curt ran screaming out the door this morning and shortly afterwards Ry said her first sentence: “Mom, you are getting on my nerves.” And I said, “Right back at’cha, Kid.” But we will survive. It’s going to be sunny today, and that makes everything ok.
If you check in on TexasNorth through Bloglines, you don’t know about what’s happening these last couple weeks of April (’cause it’s over in the sidebar). Lucky for you, I’m a-gonna tell you. See, awhile ago… and I honestly don’t know how or when… I ran into Evidently and Wende. And I never left. I love this woman. She’s brilliant and funny and even ordained and I think if we were neighbors we would have sassy conversations all the time… and then go get some donuts and rent a convertible and drive down to Santa Barbara for the weekend. Amen.
But Wende’s also got a heart of gold and is having a fundraiser for her local Women’s Resource Center by donating 20% of her Etsy earnings the next 15 days. Well, how fabulous is that? And we’re jumping on to do the same over at TexasNorth. She’ll give you a list of other shops participating, so pop on over to her blog and browse a bit. If you have some birthdays coming up or some super-special friends who deserve an I Love You gift or you always wanted to buy but just haven’t had a good reason, I think we’ve got you covered. It’s a brilliant way to create and give back. Thank you for initiating it, Wende, and thank you to all of you who will participate by adding your shops to the list or by shopping a bit and contributing to the cause. Next time, it may be a need in your area!
my new mop, which has changed my nightmares about mopping into happy sunshine bliss time (or whatever).
this movie, which was on sale for $6.96. If you haven’t seen it in awhile, you simply must. It’s basically the funniest movie of all time. ALL TIME, I said.
these chickens, which are 2 weeks-old today. There is one who sleeps on top of the water jar. S/he’s awesome. They can fly now, which is… umm, interesting. A new chicken coop/mansion is in the works and will be ready for their coming-out party in a couple of weeks.
and these bibs, made by my sister-in-law, Stacy. People, I’m not kidding. If you need a cute all-the time bib because you have a drooler, buy one of mine. But if you’re having spaghetti and chocolate cake, you need one of these. OR two. They’re soft and vinyl and cover everything… and they’re only $10. Give me a break. Hello, affordable practical cuteness. I’ll take seven.
Alright. Go forth with your week and spread a little Joy. Order your garden seeds, do a little laundry, build some military attack vehicles, whatever floats your boat or pays the bills. And tell everyone I said HI!!!
