Want To Giggle?

Here's a little giggle for you! One of my favorite blogs posted a link to this blog . It's pictures of screwed up and weird cakes. I was looking at them and the boys ended up giggling with me. Well, not Cody, he's to cool to giggle...he just chuckled.

BTW, Cody is officially a high school student now. I still remember his first day of kindergarten when he came busting out of the doors with chocolate milk covering his little white shirt. He was wound up that day talking nonstop about what he did in school. I picked him up from band practice after his first day of school on Tuesday (because he missed the school bus on Monday and neither Mark nor I knew about it) and he was exactly the same way. At least he's finally quit whining about his hair...we cut it for school and he had a total meldown because it was too short. I thought that was a girl thing.

What To Say

I know I haven't been writing lately. Sometimes there isn't squat going on. I've been piddling, working, cleaning, and playing with my crafty stuff. 'Nuff said.

Fairy Garden Update

Well, Cody happened to witness Angel do a Snatch and Grab with the fairy sign. She picked a few mushrooms too. I found a kitten rip snorting in the garden when I went to replace the stuff. So much for cuteness.

My First Fairy Garden

I found this old wheelbarrow at a garage sale for $3 and thought it would make a cute fairy garden. I've decided that all the houses I make will be displayed like this:

Notice the fairy ring of toadstools? The sign says "Never step in a fairy ring"

I clipped one of my rosemary plants into a tree, but it's kind of scraggly right now. Of course I used a ton of my sedums. I think it turned out really cute!

Somewhere in Alabama

The other night we went out to eat and the waitress said, "Do you girls want a to go box". She was referring to Aj and me. Aj has since then decided it was time to get a haircut. Here is the Before:

My mistake! Here is AJ:And here is the brand new AJ!

Somewhere in Alabama... Grandpa Sute and Ol' Man are dancing a jig.

Devil Dogs Unite!

Grandpa Sute sent pictures of his dogs. He says Hannah (on the left) is a sweetheart...but the Rudy (on the right) is his devil dog.

Hannah definitely loves the camera.
Rudy steals things and eats them. Yep. That's one sign you have a devil dog.
He's a wino too.
You know that as soon as he gets out of the water...he'll head straight for the house.Devil Dogs. They make things interesting.

Take Notice

You know how sometimes when you have something around for awhile you jut don't notice it or rather you know it's there, but it's always there. That sounds stupid but you know what I mean.
I had to take Cody to the bank the other day, when we started his savings account they gave us the wrong paperwork or something and we had to re-sign everything. Anyway, we get there and the little tellers had the dumbfounded deer in the headlights look and called for the little manager. Who was all of 23. And really cute. So I proceed to tell her what we need and she pipes up "Oh! Mark's boys!". 'Scuse me?! I know this is a small town...but really? She remembers my Mark? As we're signing, she's just chatting away and exclaims that she's so glad she won't have to harass Mark anymore about the paperwork. Okaaaay. "Oh and tell Mark I said Hi!" I'll be sure to do that.
I guess I didn't take notice of Mark anymore because I see him at his worst, grossest, and most unattractive. But if cute little 23 year olds take notice of him I better start doing the same. Usually the people who take an instant liking to Mark are gay men, and the nastiest convenience store checkers. Must be the blue eyes-that was the first thing I noticed.
