Weather To Make Your 'Hoopty' Talk!


     With what we had outside our window this morning, we almost didn't want the day to start!...but it had to start. And it had to start very early too!...I'll show you what was outside the window in a minute, but first I wanted to tell you why my day had to start so early...and show you some 'cuties' from Etsy that made the early starting day an alright thing! ^_^
      My day had to start early because I had visitors at 7 a.m.!!! O_O Yep! I said 7 a.m.!!!!...It was the beginning of another long conversation about my health...*sigh*...Nothing life threatening. Just thinking-brain-cell-threatening! Ugh!...I think I'll be driven crazy...unless this change thing goes ahead and changes already!!! LOL 
       In the meantime...I'm thankful I have things to make me smile, like octopuses (or is it octopi?! ^_^)like in the header photo...And ice cream! (below)...sorta. ^_^ ...


     In other words, thanks to Etsy, I had ice cream to 'look' at! :-) Funny thing about ice cream...you don't have to eat it to have it put you in a better mood! :-)

     Speaking of things that put you in a better mood, look at these little brooches! :-) ...


     My favorite was the sunglasses. They scream: "Hey! The sun is out! Get in a better mood already!!!" ^_^

     And since my name is 'Deborah'...and that, in Hebrew, means 'Bee'...is it any wonder this perfume caught my attention?! ^_^ ... To 'Bee...or not to 'Bee'!! LOL...


     And lastly, I never saw a leather bag that didn't put me in a better mood!...even if the leather bag was tiny...and was a keychain! :-) ...



     Now, back to reality! :-] I'll be talking about the whole 7 a.m. visit thing in the weeks ahead...Ugh!...But as to what was outside my window this morning....

     ...It's ICE!!!! O_O Tons of it!!...Well, maybe not tons!!....but definitely 'spines' of it!!!

     We're having beautiful 'looking' weather as the day goes along, but it's C-O-L-D!!! Brrrrr!...In fact, we had a temperature...if you can call zero a temperature!...so low this morning that I was sure my visitors weren't gonna show up because they're cars weren't gonna crank!...That's what happened to hubby a couple of weeks ago. He went out to go somewhere...when it was below zero!...and the car said to him: "Uhhhhhh...Oh No you didn't try to crank me up in this weather!" LOL
     Needless to say...he didn't go anywhere until later in the day!! LOL That's what happens when you have a 'hoopty' (old broke down used car) with an attitude!! ^_^ Hubby didn't even try to go out this morning! Who knows what that old car would've been saying to him!! ^_^ And hubby did 'not' wanna hear it!!! LOL

     Okay...I'm off to do some crocheting to ease the mind. :-) ... Sorry for the late posts. Bear with me a little for a bit. I'm going through 'a thing' right now with this old body of mine. But 'better times' are coming!! ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody!
