Feeling Flowery

This... Plus this...


A little bit of flower like sunshine to cheer up the kitchen. This one isn't actually for me. It will be part of a round robin dish cloth swap.

I haven't done a swap like this before, but I'm looking forward to it. After sign ups, the moderator starts us off with 6 dishcloths. She sends them to the first person on the list. That person can take 1 or all of the dishcloths as long as she/he replaces each with a new one before sending them on. They can be knit or crochet. I will be far enough down on the list that by the time the package reaches me there is likely to be a nice variety of work by the various talented hands participating.

It has been a while since I did a swap. Thanks to we go again!

A Thought for the Day

Have you ever been in a joke shop? I have to admit even though I recently entered my fifth decade, I'd never done so. What's the point? It will be stupid. It will be gross. I don't need to go in there! Or so I thought.

There were stupid gags, and gross ones. But, surprisingly there were also some real delights: costumes, silly signs, games, gifts for milestone birthdays, sand art, rain sticks... We had a great time reading to each other and holding up our "finds". Laughing.

Then I saw it. It wasn't very big. Just a wee bumper sticker. It stopped us in our tracks. The message?

Life is Sexually Transmitted

Hmmm, how true!
