I received an email yesterday stating that I had been selected for a preliminary job interview via telephone today. So I'm waiting for the phone to ring. I'll put a smile on my face and will answer my phone very professionally! I will be confident and awesome. A few prayers wouldn't hurt!
Actually, after laying this out for the picture, I'm not sure it's suitable for an Aunt Sarah. I think there are too many colors. I many have to start all over with new fabrics. Maybe all from one line? Not to fear, I have plenty of fabric. And if I use a small hexie I can punch out my own papers. I could use some of the really ugly scrapbook paper that will never be used otherwise. Hmmmmm.... yes, I can see this happening.
While out walking one day last fall, I came across an Osage Orange tree. Why is the fruit from this tree called Hedge Apples? I can't answer that but I think hedge apples are cool looking. When I happened upon the fruit on that particular walk, there was an older couple looking at the fruit as well, and they picked up a few to take to a friend. As I was just starting out on my walk, I decided to wait until I returned to get a few for myself. However, when I returned, every single fruit was gone! Yesterday, while driving through the parking lot for that very same trail, I found another tree with hundreds of hedge apples! I was actually looking for oak trees, but settled for some very pretty hedge apples instead.
Yesterday I drove past a nearby county park that I seldom visit. As it's located off Oak Ride Drive, I decided to drive through and look for Oak trees! Yes, there are many, but I still couldn't find any acorns. I'll go back later today (after the phone rings?) more properly attired, and I WILL find acorns. Bonus: there appear to be a couple of nice walking trails in the park, and it's very close to home!!
eta: Hubby called awhile ago and asked if a shoebox full of acorns would be enough. YIPPEE! the search is over.
Living in a small town, we have a mixture of paid and volunteer fire fighters. I live about a mile from the nearest volunteer station. It's a beautiful day out, and sitting here with my window open, I heard the fire siren a few minutes ago. It reminded me of something I saw in our newspaper a couple of months ago. Did I already complain about this? We have a column called "Mail Call" for which anyone can call in and make comments that will be printed in the column. In general, I would say that the people who call in are on the lower end of the IQ scale. I recently saw a comment from someone who had moved from 'the city' to a small rural community near here for the peace and quiet and the slower pace of life. However, they were very upset about all the fire sirens and thought somebody should do something about them. HELLO! These sirens are calling the people and equipment who may be saving your life or your house someday!!!!!
I volunteered to make cookies for an upcoming Hospice function. Should I splurge and make these delightful looking confections? Or should I use the ingredients on hand and make either peanut butter cookies or molasses crinkles? I've also seen a version of these using mini Nilla Wafers instead of Mini Nutter Butters. I guess if I was really ambitious, I could make my own mini peanut butter cookies for the tops?
It's time to get off the computer and get to the sewing room! Hmmm....shall I work on my Tilda sewalong? My log cabin pumpkin kit? The new BOM that I signed up for, which starts with a pumpkin block? An applique project for a swap, that just happens to feature a pumpkin?
TTFN! Counting my blessings......Sunny
