Happy Birthday, daD!

24 Jun

Today is my daD’s birthday! He’s turning… uhm… I don’t know, six hundred years old or something.  In honor of my old, old (really super old) daD, I thought you all might want to see some of his favorite things!

daD's back yard

 

daD's first grandbaby (playing with Auntie Melissa's water beads)

 

daD's fishies

 

daD's pond-side chats with family and a cuppa

 

daD's pond (he really likes the pond, okay?!?)

daD's freshly painted back fender

 

daD's lone wolf gas tank

 

So, to sum up, my daDdy loves fishies, grandbabies,  his pond, choppers, wolves, his pond, a nice cuppa, and his pond.

Oh, and also, he loves his pond.

Happy Birthday, daDdy! I love you!

 

 

Eleventy Billion Bits of Awesome

1 Jan

Well friends, I did it.  I survived another holiday season.  Boring old January is here and I’m thrilled.  I’m settling in for my long winter’s nap with the following bits of awesome:

 

a curious little kitten

 

an actual TV stand & coffee table (Thanks, IkeaSanta!)

 

my favorite Christmas gift: a pillow made from the fabric of my parents' first couch!

 

eleventy billion cups of tea (thanks, Dennis & Holly!)

and this hat I made.

Husband’s bits of awesome all came in one package this  year, but I think it’ll keep him occupied:

 

This one tastes like really old, velvety bandaids.

I will also, of course, have this to keep me company:

 

...possibilities...

 

Do you think I have enough warm fuzzies to last me until spring?  })i({
