{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} ~ October 6, 2011

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter again . . .


Girl of the House and I made this banner using scrapbooking supplies and ribbon a few years ago. In our old house we hung it on a fireplace, but here we hung it from the bookshelves. It's pretty there, don't you think?


This utility sink makes me inordinately and ridiculously happy. I've never had one before, but I have wished for one many times. It's so much better to wash out paint brushes here than in the kitchen sink or to empty the mop bucket here instead of outside. It's truly the little things in life that make us happy!


This tree ~ I don't know what to say about this tree! I'm not even sure a tree like this should be allowed. But I can vouch for its existence. It lives in my neighborhood a few blocks from my house. Doesn't it look like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss book? And just how did it get that way??? It's at least thirty feet tall!!


Girl of the House woke up Monday with the stomach bug that's going around these parts. It lasted three loooooong days, and now she has to catch up on her on-line classes, alas and alack. Generic Pepto-Bismal and Sambucol are her best friends during such times.


  1. What a funny tree! What does your banner say? I can make out the word "delights" but not the first word.

  2. Sorry! It says "Fall Delights." Thanks for visiting! :-)

  3. Your banner is really cute, and yes that tree is ridiculous!

  4. Your banner is cute! I hope your daughter feels better soon.
