As much As I Love Flowers......!
First order of business?! THANK YOU to all of you who were so encouraging to me! I had a couple of days of feeling like this...
Next order of business?! Thanks to Melissa Blake over at the blog, "so about what I said". She hosted the Giveaway for my Purse Sueded Hand Bag yesterday. A winner was chosen. It's "Whitney"!! Congratulations Whitney!!! My 'baby' will be coming to stay with you today! I hope you find a good and happy use for this little "baby" of mine!
I also have some other good news. Remember utary, from this blog post about giving some Etsy sellers their first sale?! Well, WOOHOO!! She got her first sale!! I thought it was so nice of her to contact me to let me know. It feels so good to know I might have been of help to somebody!! (Definitely one of the things I like most about blogging....besides talking my head off, of course! ^_^)
And there's some good news for me too! My Red Wired Brown Butterfly Necklace, that I made with wire and crochet thread,
Dulce De Leche With A Chocolate Twist-TT Team". Please click over there and check out the shops. There's some great gift idea items in there. One I really love is this "Butterfly Variegated Jasper Purse/Zipper Pull" by my dear friend Cindy!
WHEW!! Finally I can tell you my story about the flowers!...Hubby hasn't cooked anything else since the "Meal" he made the other day. We're still nibbling on the pork chops and steak he made. Well,...I'M still nibbling. I'm trying to prolong this "dry" cooking spell as long as I can!! LOL
The flowers are another story!....My friend, because I haven't been well, brought me the most beautiful flowers!!
What was I thinking?! My husband's idea of "pretty vase" and "arrange them pretty" looked like this...
My friend came over yesterday...now it's a whole week later...saw these flowers and said: "Uh....What's up with these?!"
My friend took the flowers out of this 'Flower Jail', while I was starting to cough and wheeze again, arranged and photographed them in the other room, and brought me these flowers...ones I can keep forever and not have to water! :-)
When Jeff Was A Boy
He had an orange bicycle
that he rode all over town;
A banana-seated 'Stingray',
and its handle grips were brown.
At12, to make some cash,
he had a great big paper route.
He'd either walk or ride his bike.
Come rain or shine, he would go out.
He had a fast-red wagon
he pretended was a car.
He hauled everything in sight,
from sister's dolls to dirt-filled jars.
He played little league football,
basketball, kick soccer too.
Despite his having asthma
(which his coaches never knew).
He had lots of toys to play with-
matchbox cars and small 'Hot Wheels',
'Pick-up Sticks' and building blocks,
and model planes, which gave him thrills.
All his responsibility
was to take 'Skippy' out to run.
That's all his dog and him would do.
This made his childhood lots of fun!
