I’m Stuck On You

Elmer’s Glue has come a long way. I remember when I was in first grade, we didn’t really have glue.  We had paste.  The paste came in a tiny little jar with a tiny little spoon.  It was kind of a flat spoon and it was supposed to be used for scraping the paint out of the jar onto theContinue reading “I’m Stuck On You”

Monkey See Monkey Do

Am I the last one to the party? Am I the last one to know? And I would still be sitting by the phone waiting, if it weren’t for Shannon and Kelly. The question here is how? How? How have I lived and breathed and taken tables out to turtle-filled fields without knowing about Pic Monkey?Continue reading “Monkey See Monkey Do”

Watch Out For Crumbs

I am a little in awe of the artistic photograph. You know what I’m talking about….the photographs taken from incredible visual angles with tight shots and wide shots and close-ups.  Photographs taken on tractors and horses and beaches and lakes and sandboxes and gardens and fields. This is not one of those photographs.

It’s A Cinch Inspired by Freddie Mercury

<img src=https://thistlewoodfarm.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/littlefolder2.png?w=200> I was in a 5K this past weekend.  It was miserable.  It was cold and raining and in the middle of the race there was a very steep hill.  The kind of hill that makes you fall to your knees in agony and cry and feel like your leg ends at your right knee.  I stared at thatContinue reading “It’s A Cinch Inspired by Freddie Mercury”

Don’t Forget Your Yearbook

I should be cleaning right now. I know for a fact that there are way too many dustbunnies and random pieces of Captain Crunch floating around here at the farm. But I’m not.  Cleaning that is. Instead I’m spending all my time over here. At Becca’s.  *sigh* Becca is like the prom queen and president ofContinue reading “Don’t Forget Your Yearbook”

“It’s a Cinch” Take Two

Sometimes I am so lame. As in L. A. M. E. And this one took the cake (and the fork and the spoon and maybe a plate or two). Remember the party we are having at the end of the month where every project is going to be a cinch?  Well, as part of introducing theContinue reading ““It’s a Cinch” Take Two”

The Pass It On Project

There are many different types of kindness. There’s boy scout helping the elderly lady cross the road kindness. There’s Sir Walter Raleigh throwing a coat over a puddle for Queen Elizabeth kindness. There’s volunteering your time and donating and collecting items for disaster relief kindness. In this world there are so many ways that justContinue reading “The Pass It On Project”

Do You Light a Candle?

Do you ever wonder where people blog? Do you ever wonder how they write a post? I do. All……the…..time. I read your post about the easiest burlap wreath you will ever make….or the post about the nests made of chocolate and peanut butter…..or the post about what those little stickers on fruit mean…. ….and itContinue reading “Do You Light a Candle?”
