It’s A Laugh A Minute Here

Good Monday! 🙂

You know what they say, Kids:

“If you can laugh at yourself – you’ll never be at a loss for entertainment!”

I sure do find that to be the case. I’m always doing something that cracks me up.

The other day, I was rushing to get ready to go out for the evening. I chose a scarf to wear but noticed it was a little wrinkled. Because I was running late, I quickly decided I wasn’t going to waste time dragging out the ironing board. Instead, I figured I could do a quick pressing on the kitchen counter.

Hmmmmmm, it wasn’t going to be as easy as I’d imagined to spread the scarf onto a hand towel and do a speedy job.

OK, so at that point I was laughing out loud and telling myself I would have been finished MUCH sooner if I’d taken the time to set up the big board. Tsk-tsk. 😉

But I guess all’s well that ends well . . .

The scarf came out fine and the laughter was a bonus. It gave me a chance to stop rushing, catch my breath, and focus on enjoying the evening. 🙂


Tomorrow, we have Show and Tell Tuesday with refrigerators!!!!



10 Silly Questions

Hey Kids! 🙂

Let’s have a little fun, today.

Here are ten random questions.

I’ll answer them first, and then I’m hoping you’ll play along, too.

Just copy and paste a few – or the whole bunch – into the comments section; delete my answers, and write your own!

Ready? 🙂

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

Closed. I like to see all drawers and cabinet doors closed as well. None of them are so neat that they should be on display!!

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?

Sometimes . . .
And when we buy new pillows, we remove the tags, too! Shhhh!

3. Do you like to use post-it notes?

I especially like the very small ones – they make great bookmarks! If you think you’ll want to return to a specific spot in a book or magazine, place a post-it right there and find it easily next time!

4. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I assume this means the “top” sheet, and my answer is “tucked in” – but only at the foot of the bed. (I’m old enough to remember a time when bottom sheets were not “fitted”. Boy, were they ever tough to keep tucked in!)

5. How many languages can you speak?

Two – English and French (4 years study)
I also studied Latin for 4 years. Contrary to popular belief, Latin offers many benefits to a student! For example, the majority of words in English (and other languages) can be traced back to Latin roots. If you’ve learned Latin, it’s much easier to decipher unfamiliar words that you encounter – including math and science terms.

6. Which are better Legos or Lincoln Logs?

Legos!!! The creative possibilities are endless!

7. Take a vitamin daily?

Most days, though we sometimes miss taking them on weekends if we’re really busy.

8. Wear slippers?

Oh yeah! The minute my feet cross the threshold – I take off my shoes and “slip” into those slippers. 😉

9. First concert?

The Beach Boys – not only was I young then – so were they!!! lol

10. Can you swim well?
Yes. I learned very early, and I think that’s the key. They say swimming is the best exercise there is! By the way, who are “they”, and how do they know so much? 😉



I didn’t really NEED it

But it was 75% off!

Who could resist such a deal?

Not me, apparently. 😉


It will earn its keep, though. Any minor stress that occurs during the course of a week will be no match for this little day-brightener.


C’mon . . . . I can see you smiling right now!


Any similarities between these bears and Lady Crystal/Sir Beads are purely coincidental.

Just sayin’! 😉
