Week 16 - Lisa

My sister sent us these flower bulbs that are capable of growing and blooming indoors.  They are amazing, it's like watching asparagus grow.  Every time I look over at the pots they've popped up a bit more.  We do not know what will be blossoming. Suppose to be a surprise.  Guessing tulips, freesias or daffodils.  Won't matter love them all.

I've been practicing my scone making for the Royal Wedding next Friday.  ;>  These are lemon-ginger.  My mom is calling the English cow patties.  There's a name game going round on Facebook - get your English name for the wedding.  Use Lord or Lady.  Add one of your grandmothers first names, hyphen with name of first pet and use the name of the street you grew up on as your last name.  I'm such a sucker;  Lady Emily-Ajax Mandarin.  ;>  I need a life.

I read a couple books this week.  Enjoyed the fun stories about the "Championship Season."  ;>  Yep still riding the World Series euphoria.

So yeah, were you looking to read something funny, snappy, clever?  Well look elsewhere.  Like drop down to Sis' Week 16.  I got nothing for you this week.  The well is dry people.  The demands of scoring a paycheck has sucked the life out of me.  My mom's retired she's got time to be funny.  I mean think about I got the cat, she's got the dog.  Does that not say anything?  I'll leave you with this quote:  "People used to explore the dimensions of reality by taking LSD to make the world look weird.  Now the world is weird and they take Prozac to make it normal." - Bangstrom   I'm thinking I could use a dose of both these days.  ;>

Week 16 - Sis

Received art work done by my 5 1/2 year old great-niece, Autumn, last week, which we have displayed on one of our bare walls, (ah, just to let you know, they are all bare). Autumn is her given name and I understand that lately she wants to be called "Glitter." Ahem, my thinking it's one of those pseudonyms that means now you pay more for the work.

As you see in her early 5 year period she delved in the Fantasy era. Then toward the second quarter phase of that period, her work became more personal and she either showcased her jewel of a family or the family jewels, not sure?    


No matter, as she has now advanced to her last half of the 5 year period, she has turned a more cynical eye toward the world and seems to be telling every politician running to keep THEIR jobs, "go fly a kite!"

(Disclaimer) - Not used here, the more adult version of this latter sentence is not appropriate for some taste, nor the opinion of the artist named ). 

A, by appointment only, private viewing of Glitter's work will be scheduled in the future!
