Miscellaneous thoughts

I miss my miscellaneous ramblings...so here are a few for today.
----------------------------------------
Amazing what a little sunshine will do for your mood. I'm thinking that wherever we vacation there must be sunshine...and a beach...and fruity drinks with umbrellas. Cost Rica? I'll look into it lauralu...thanks for the suggestion. I have a few months to convince Sam that he will love to ride in an airplane. A small white lie I know he will call me on as soon as the plane doors close. Do you think anyone would object if I just stuck him in my checked luggage? (I'm KIDDING...mostly)
----------------------------------------
If you haven't tried the McCormick Crock Pot Seasonings, I recommend you do. Sure, there's too much sodium in them. But the Italian Herb Chicken is so yummy you won't mind swelling up like a balloon after you eat it.
----------------------------------------
I'm working on soliciting donations for the Public Animal Welfare Society's big event in May. We're going to have an auction to raise money (and have some fun). If you know anyone who has anything interesting they'd like to donate, please drop me a line and let me know.
----------------------------------------
Thank you for all the kind comments about my sewing pictures. I post them so I can convince myself that I'm not a complete sobbing mess whose lost her mind. (no comments Mom)
----------------------------------------
Some people don't know how good they got it. Fact of life. No use trying to change them or make them understand. But it still makes me sad to see someone who can't appreciate their life for silly reasons.
----------------------------------------
I was indescribably happy that I found the hooks for the over-the-door hanging ironing board that I gave my mom. It wasn't just a dream...I KNEW I put them in that general vicinity...they simply shifte positions in my closet (read: were on the floor under a pile of other crap)
----------------------------------------
I watched LOST again last night. I was quite perturbed that they advertised a "special two-hour LOST," only to air a re-cap show for the first hour. And then to have the second hour of LOST start with "previously on LOST..." Well...that was just plain assinine.

Overall, good episode. I'm going to have to hit the message boards to find the special "catches" that I missed. I'm SURE there was something special about Mr. Echoes chosen Bible verses on his "Jesus stick," but I'm going to have to look them up.

And can I just say...big black smoke creature...CREEPY! I've already seen a theory or two about this. Still CREEPY!
----------------------------------------
The sun is shining...but it is NOT warm outside. brrrr!
----------------------------------------
I have failed to get another Thursday challenge photo. I've been busy! I have excuses. I'll work on it.
----------------------------------------
I'm working on a new red blankie for Sam. It's a mindless baby afghan pattern in red Bernat Softee Chunky that has more "character" than any blanket I've ever done before. I'm going to have a hard time letting him have it when I'm done, I think.
----------------------------------------
Trader Joe's French Truffles are YUMMY!
----------------------------------------
I think I'm going to try to arrange a "baby shower" for my male coworker whose wife is expecting in February. I'm sure the office won't think of it, since he's a guy and all. But I know Steve was touched when his coworkers had one for him before Sam was born. And I know he doesn't have "baby stuff" left from his first kid...who is in his teens.
----------------------------------------
I'm thinking about going to church. I'm just thinking about it. Mental preparation, I guess you would call it. This is one of those times I wish Reverand Bob were still around at my old Methodist Church. I remember talking to him when I was a kid...I bet he would understand this.
----------------------------------------
I have work to do. Ta Ta!

I really like the McCormick's White Chili Seasoning. Mmmmmm. We had it tonight actually.

Personally, I'm just ready for January to be over.
