IF: intricate, and a little more on living LIFE

Ok, bear with me as I try to connect the dots here. Methinks this should be broken into more than one post, but here goes…

First:IF theme for this week is intricate. My best example of this, I believe, is an older one, but for those of you who have not seen it, here it is:

A detail…so you can see all the insane dots. I used the smallest technical pen available. Why??? andy-condensed-nickela

In the same vain, well sort of, my sweet kiddos made a huge snowman yesterday. Kind of looks like a poster child for Snowmen Rogaine ūüôā They scavenged our Halloween bin for the hair, dad’s endless collection of cheap sunglasses for the cool shades, and my art studio for the buttons and carrot foam. They are so creative. The took a tape measurer out too, come to think of it. Wonder where that ended up…???

Next, I read some good books this weekend. TOYS GO OUT cracked me up! It is about how a stuffed buffalo, a stuffed stingray, a ball just want to be loved. The dialogue is hilarious. StingRay is a know-it-all. It tells the buffalo, who got peanut butter on himself:
“You’re dirty,” says StingRay, placing a block on top of her pile.
“It’s not dirt. It’s food.”
“Food is dirt when it’s mashed in your fur.”
“No it isn’t. It’s food. Why would it be dirt in your fur, but nice and tasty anywhere else?”
“It would be dirt if it was on the rug,” says StingRay. “Or on the sofa.”
“Food isn’t dirty, or you wouldn’t eat it. I have some nice clean food on me. I don’t see that it’s a problem that it needs washing.”
“If people think it’s dirty, then it is, ” StingRay claims.

I was laughing out loud at the wrestling meet. The fourth graders in the bleachers with me were also laughing out loud-at me. ūüôā

Lastly, I actually listed something. Haven’t done that for awhile since I have mostly been working with people on my mailing list, etc. Click HERE to see the listing. I started it at .99 cents, just for fun. And anyone from my mailing list who bids (or from this blog if you let me know) will get entered in a drawing for a free bag of goodies! If the BIN is used, then the buyer will win the goodies.

Have a great week!

Pay at the pump, please!

So I married the perfect guy. Really, I did. BUT, I have learned that if I want to have any money in our piggy bank when we retire, he is NOT allowed to go into the store to pay for the gas. He inevitably comes out with at least $12 worth of the most non-tempting candy in the entire store, and yet another pair of $6 sunglasses.¬† Sadly, this is just part of his collection…placed ironically–but not strategically, I tell you– next to¬†my favorite¬†piggy bank.¬† Oh well.¬† I will happily survive this road trip we call life without good candy and rolls of Susan B. Anthony coins.¬† At least I have my¬†sa-weet Mikey. ¬†And eyeshades.¬† And orange circus peanuts.
