He's in trouble with a capital T....again.

I left the house to do the marketing. You know, as in buying DOG food  and DOG treats and this is the thanks I get when I come home. Gone 2 1/2 hours and he destroyed an entire bag of polyester stuffing. 

 Did he think his bed needed more stuffing?
 He ran down the hall and jumped on the human bed and proceeded to carry on.
Shaking his head in disbelief while I'm still yelling about the stuffing. This folks is why that hideous 5 ft chicken is not within his reach. Of course that may be a blessing in disguise if he shredded it ;)

Foggy thinking

Someone gave this 'piece' to my husband. I know why, his wife wanted it out of his house. Anyway, the husband arrived home toting this thing thru the door like a schoolboy with flowers behind his back. It stands at 5 ft. Repeat: Five Feet Tall! a Foghorn Leghorn chicken in my living room....yeah..(eyeroll)
He claims the grandkids will love it.  When they come next year? They live away. In the meantime what in the world am I to do with a five foot tall stuffed chicken?
Of course Mr. Bettis isn't too fond of it so perhaps I could let it stand while I'm gone and it would keep him in check. Then again, it wouldn't take Mr. Bettis long before I would come home to find stuffed chicken stuffing all over my floor. *sigh*

Sweet and spicy

It was cold and windy with snow over the weekend so I set about to entertain myself. I enjoy making Christmas so I dabbled in making some scrapbook albums and this is what I came up with. Made from mini paper bags and some sweet Christmas paper I had laying around. Measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/4" and it's ready for some sweet wallet pictures.

Onto spice: Love my coffee but occasionally it's nice to have a cup of afternoon tea. My favorite is Sweet and Spicy tea by Good Earth. It was available at our local market for years. Unfortunately they no longer carry that blend. They carry every other blend but not that one.
I miss that cup of tea. It was a relaxing blend with a hint of sweet and a dab of spice. Perfect in every way.

Our President's day celebration was kept to a minimum. The hubby was off so we cleaned closets and the kitchen cupboards in the morning. We took the rest of the day off and did absolutely nothing. Enjoying every moment of it.

Wool You be My Valentine

I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day. I really don't have a good reason it's just not a big deal and ranks at the bottom of my holiday list. That said I thought this valentine was cute. 
Yarn and needles? Will you be my Valentine :)

What is your special holiday?
