Happy Lazy Week to one and all! Oh, maybe you aren't lazy, but I am! When I say lazy I really mean, "I'll do what I want!" I'm eating oranges and below you'll see all the mushrooms I ate! I have declared 2012 The Year of the Toadstool. I am on the lookout for toadstools because I am a forest and fairyland fan. I just can't get enough of toadstools.
I am one of those people who isn't shy about purchasing gifts FOR MYSELF. Smile. I ordered this and then I didn't get any emails about placing my order, so I decided maybe it "was not to be" and then this lovely print mail sack came in the mail today!
Inside was THIS! Woo hoo! This is the very coolest bag I have ever owned. Cath Kidston stuff is so very tempting. One of my dearest UK friends has sent me CK goodies before and now I have a few little accessories to put in my bag! One of my dear Italian friends has also sent me lovely CK stuff. Oh, I love my new bag!
Speaking of toadstools and all things happy, I have made quite a bit of progress on my pixie hat! The wool is Lion Brand Martha Stewart. It's called roving wool. The color is: poppy. Love that! I'll show you the finished product. I have a brilliant idea and it's not going to be just any old pixie hat!
Here is another present I gave myself. Oh yes. I have a paperback version and I love it, but this is a good format for my reread of one of the most tantalizing descriptions of hamlet life.
This book was also a Christmas gift and Lisbeth Zwerger is one of my all-time favorite illustrators. She's amazing. I find her work so inspirational. I did a little copying. FUN!
I went over to our Jenny's house today because she was feeling horrible due to a cold. Samantha Rose was mellow, so when she napped, Jenny and I took a nap on their fancy foam bed. Ahhhhh! WHAT a delicious nap!
Then off to the grocery store for dinner ingredients. Did I tell you my mom and dad sent us a Lobster Gram? Yes, we dined on lobster tail and clam chowder, crab cakes and cheesecake last week. Today, I "thought" about buying lobster tails (on sale for $5.99) but just purchased a pound of shrimp instead. I really should live by the sea. I do love the food that swims in the ocean!
Anyway . . . when I commented over on the wonderful Susan Branch's blog I said that I think the new year will mean FLOWERS for me. Why not? I love spring. I love summer. I think that even though we don't usually eat them, we should buy them occasionally to feast our eyes. Don't you think so, too? I leave you with my flower purchases. I hope they brighten YOUR day, the remainder of your week, and your NEW YEAR!
I have stories to grade for my students. We wrote Cinderella tales and made books. I'll show them to you very soon. I made one, too!
Bye bye dear neighbors! Thank you for visiting me. I so appreciate it.
