i remember that phrase from some ditty in the past...but cannot remember now. sometimes the past runs too far back into the ..... well, the past! :))
we traveled to portland oregon to spend christmas w my son & my two grand treasures. had a nice visit. we wrestled, drew pictures w dry erase boards that they found in gramma hams bag of goodies - "you always bring the nicest things gramma ham!" i put together the little house i gave them for christmas and while playing inside the oldest heaved a deep heavy sigh and said "well, this is so nice, but i really do need to get outside and do some work." oh? what work? it's raining outside!" "no gramma ham! not THAT outside! our house outside! i need to go out and work on the painting of our new house you gave us! :))" such busy, imaginative little people my grand treasures be! the night after christmas we all took the Max out to the zoo to enjoy the annual show "Zoo Lights". it was veautiful, amazing and great fun! also freezing cold! lollol
but now home again and time to start back on other projects like getting house cleaned and ready for our annual late christmas/new years dinner and visit w mil. then...THEN :)) ... back to work on the WWWW RR!! yaaay!
of course that will be after i waddle around in my new fabric finds from our every december ramble thru Fabric Depot on our way out of portland! :)) which entailed a call to doggy kennel owner friend to inform her that (giggle giggle) we won't be back in time to collect the doggies!! hahahahaha! told her where we had just spent a couple of hours and that she only got one guess at what i bought, besides Dutch Licorice! :))
and so, today, so completely exhausted from our holiday ordeal ...oops! er... trip, i have read w my eyes closed. all day long. well, except to go and rescue ZENA!! Warrior Princess & Whiggy Wiggles from their ordeal of having to stay at vets' kennel (so they could continue their medications while i was away). among the lightly minded subjects i have found on a new to me news site was this great story. i have been blessed in my life to have seen my dogs' pet skunks kittens rolling around my yard once upon a time. i hope there is a day for some of you to be blessed w a similar experience. they are the most incredibly sweet little black and white puffs of fluff! and they were as sweet as their momma, who would come up on deck at night while i cleaned garlic, looking to see if maybe, just maybe! i had forgotten to pick up the house kitties food. anyway...this is such a cute black & white kitty photo story! enjoy...
...oh...and Geordi's pet skunks' name was "Calico Kitty" :))
