welcome to this week's list of likes... did you notice we've moved from Spring to "OMG it's hot!" ?
more pretty paintings on Friday's paint party post!
want to get to know me better through a meme of questions??? you know you do, everyone's doing it! Read it HERE
so happy to be knitting socks again! I successfully (sort of) turned the heel on DH's sock yesterday, it's been a really long time since I did a sock and had to look up how to do SSP (a decrease on a purl row) after messing it up a couple times but I'm on the way to a finish. I suppose he'll want a match for his other foot...
Did you hear blueprint has sold out and is closing down? Craftsy advertised having classes for "life" when you purchased them, then they sold to blueprint. Blueprint advertised classes for "life" then they sold to NBC who is shutting it down. I just joined for a year because they advertised unlimited classes for your subscription time and being isolated seemed like a good time to invest.
Aren't you tired of being lied to and manipulated?
I know, things change but when a promise is made, a contract is signed, and in general...
So I'm trying to see a few classes before the end, and am watching a good one by Mary P Murphy on painting. She also speaks to design principles and drawing. She's good. Photos of my work tomorrow.
we had a big rainstorm last week, and even the robins were trying to escape it
ran across this cute song on youtube this week. I grew up watching Dean Martin

How about that moon on May 25th? It was the smiley face we thought might happen earlier. Well it happened on Memorial Day, and came not a moment too soon to lift my spirits. Unfortunately my camera couldn't capture the stars well, but I saw it. I'm a witness!

|I painted this to commemorate it|
|Milo made this toy arrangement in honor of the moon's smiley face!|
Speaking of eating, and who isn't? I made banana cake again, but something went wrong and it didn't rise into a fluffy big cake this time. Still tasted good even being dense. I made two mini trifles with it one night for desert...
I like bada bing cherries (yea, no corn syrup) so into a handled cup went a big square of cake, pour on some cherry juice, layer on half a tapioca pudding cup (yea, no corn starch!), a bit of whipped cream, put two actual cherries on top, and it was moist and delish!
Speaking of sweet, and who isn't?
have you ever been around a group of children? All of them are cute and nice, but they'll pass on germs like little infection vectors, til pretty soon everyone in school has strep, pink eye or head lice...
they may be opening up business again, but nothing is changed as far as infection goes. The virus spreads like a drop of water in a lake... in every direction at once.
be smart.... this is no joke, no one is trying to strip you of your rights to get sick so put away your guns, just don't give it to the innocent law abiding careful people who are trying to keep a distance from you. (this is to the hundreds of people who come right at me on a 4 Ft wide sidewalk while panting and running)
|pining for my friend Kuna|
Remember this week when that tree guy's dog ran right at me when I was on a leash? Then his stupid owner ran right to all of us saying, she's just friendly. First of all no dog wants free dogs running up to them when they are on a leash, being all law abiding and all. Second of all,
even friendly dogs and people can make us sick because who knows who they've been around?
Makes me want to put my head in a fire place!

Heyyyy what's that little orange thing?
Mama: that's a goldfish cracker I gave you... why aren't you eating it?
Milo: I don't know... I'm not sure what it is
Mama: Oh NOW you're a discriminating diner? I've seen you pick up junk on the road to eat. I've seen your nose headed for a trash can. Every night when dad snacks before bed you're right there as his noshing companion eating goldfish!
Milo: oh. well. maybe if Daddy tries to eat it....
Now sit! Stay! visit these people to see their lists of likes and join us sometime!
It seems hard to find paw-sitive things to like right now, but there is always some little thing that makes you laugh, or sigh, or smile... right?
