Playin' Hookey...

I stayed home from work today with a very sick young man,(a nasty case of flu). Poor Dustin is feeling a little better tonight now, but I thanked him profusely for getting sick and giving me a day off in the middle of the week. Very nice of him, if I do say so myself.
I've had to move my birdfeeder to the fenced backyard because the deer seem to think it is their personal smorgasboard. Today I observed the giant bird that has been depleting the water in my birdbath at an alarming rate. His name is Brody, he lives next door and wanders the neighborhood at will. What a silly bird!

I just had to add this picture of my little Shilo and her cookies because this kid DOES NOT cook. She came upstairs today and said "I want to make cookies". I almost fainted dead away. Here she is waiting for her very last cookie to come out of the oven. I'm thinking a snack is in order as soon as I head back upstairs...

Standing in line at the store the other day, I looked down and saw my friend, Monica's quilt on the front of this magazine. I knew it was coming, but was so excited to actually see it. I can hardly imagine what Monica is feeling when she walks by this in all the stores. How very very COOL!!

Wow, Monica's quilt is so pretty & colorful! How exciting to have it on the front of a magizine!!
You have some very strange looking birds in Astoria!!
How is Dustin feeling?
What fun to go to those yard sales!
It's been chilly & rainy here this week, but that is O.K. I don't have to water so much that way!
Last weekend Dawn & I where mowing & weeding around my new trees, when Dawn came upon two huge Bull snakes. It was pretty scary until we figured out they wern't Rattelers!

Bad for Dustin - but good for you -a rough trade-off there though.
That's a heck of a bird -wingless, even! LOL
Send some cookies this way - I've been too lazy to bake anything like that since Christmas!

This magazine must be packed with nice projects! Your friend is so talented! Those cookies are not flat and they look sooo yummy!

My boys always seemed to get sick on Monday's. Who am I to argue with the flu-gods! Glad Dustin is felling better though. And I've seen that "bird" up near my house too... must move my bird-feeder.

How cool you got to see the mag on a stand! I have not yet (sans for at Anna Lena's), though not from a lack of looking! And the feeling is GREAT! And thank you for the mention about it... that was an even better feeling!!!!!!!!
