Thursday Three

Hello, hello! Back again for another Thursday Three post! Here I am sitting at my kitchen counter, enjoying my first cup of coffee of the morning, looking through emails and deleting most of them. It's a never-ending daily task that must be done. But actually you're probably looking right past me at those Beanie Babies on the shelf, right? Ha! Caught you!

For some reason, a couple months ago, my husband decided he wanted to put those Beanie Babies on display after finding them in one of at least a hundred bags and boxes left behind by our daughter when she moved out. Maybe he wanted them to be a reminder to her whenever she visited that she still had a plethora of stuff here that needed to be removed from the premises, please!? Can't say for sure because he does some weird things all the time - it's just his nature! ;)

Just realized it's 9:00AM already and I haven't even had breakfast yet although I've been awake for 2 hours! So on to three things about me.....

  • I've chased the blackbirds away from our feeders several times already this morning. I know they have to eat, too, but they take from the smaller birds and I don't like that!
  • I love baked oatmeal! I made a big dish of it a few days ago (it freezes very well) and now I'm reheating some for my breakfast.
  • I had my annual Pap test yesterday. Is yours due yet?
Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a good one!

Trying Something New

Over here there's a gal named Kristin who is always coming up with cool ideas for taking photos and documenting your daily life. Every Thursday she features what she calls 'Thursday Three' where you take a photo of yourself, yes a selfie, then post it on your blog along with 3 things about you right now.

So here is my first post for this project. And yes, I am posting a selfie. There's a first time for everything! Please don't be frightened. It really is me with all those wrinkles. What can I say? I'm getting older. Anyway, here's three things about me today.


  • I am sitting in my scrap room, looking at photos of my grandchildren on my laptop instead of creating artwork.
  • I just got out of the shower. I like to be clean when I go to bed.
  • I am tired of the snow being on the ground. It's time for spring!
Thanks for looking! Have a good night!

4 on the 4th - February

It's that time again where I share 4 photos with you that I took on the 4th of this wonderful month of February! Yes, February is wonderful because it means January is over and we are now one month closer to Spring! Yea!

Going clockwise from top left:
  1. Yep, we got more snow. Gee, what a surprise, right? And we are expecting more tomorrow along with some possible sleet & freezing rain before changing over to all rain. Should make for a fun and interesting day. Anyway, I noticed after I took this picture of one of our snow-covered pine trees that there was a group of Juncos hanging out in there. If you look closely just to the left of the middle of the picture, you'll see them.
  2. As I was PURGING the drawers in our antique dry sink today, I discovered these place cards that Keri had made many years ago. They sure brought back some great memories and made me chuckle.
  3. A photo of said antique dry sink that we got from Ron's mom many years ago. Still looks just as good as the day we brought it home.
  4. I was pleasantly surprised when I found this group of kid's silverware under a bag full of plastic ware. I had totally forgotten we had them. The Trix spoon was one of Keri's favorites, perhaps because it has her name on it. 
That's it for this month's 4 on the 4th! Thanks for stopping by! See you next month!
