Well, it’s Monday again. A-freakin’-mazing how fast the weekend flies by. I wonder if it would if I was “really” retired? Would I still get the Sunday-afternoon-blues? Hmm. Not sure.
So – I had a bit of a revelation this weekend. Ready? Here ’tis.
Mrs. Brady had it made.
Not cuz they knew it was much more than a hunch.
Not even cuz all the girls had hair of gold like their mother (the youngest one in curls).
It was Alice!
Mrs. Brady had Alice.
I don’t even know if she realized how good she had it – her fake tv house was always clean – fake dinner was always ready and the fake dishes were always done.
And – thanks to Alice – Mrs. Brady wouldn’t even have gotten upset over…
That used to be the stuffed squeaky toy he got for Christmas. I think one of those white things is the squeaky thing…
Sigh…9 months. 15 more months of chewie….sigh…. Alice would just cheerfully vacuum up the mess. No. Wait – she’d pick up all the pieces, stuff them back in the toy and sew it up. All while a lovely roast was cooking in the oven.
want need Alice!! 😉
Now – my card for today is another Valentine’s Day card or a hey-I-really-love-you-here’s-a-card card. I used the Annual Catalog host-exclusive set called Love You Lots, plus a few goodies from the Sealed with Love Bundle. And threw in a little…Grateful Bunch! Take a look-see:
Made it to Friday again, y’all! Yippee! Only one more weekend and a week and then I’ll be on my way home! 🙂 Time for some home time – harvest the tons of tomatoes and Chile Peppers, maybe plant some more turnips – did I tell you I brought a mess of them with me? Cooked them last weekend – oh my goodness! They were sooooo good! I froze a bag of them to take home so Wayne can try them. But….they’re kind of calling my name – he may be out of luck! If y’all like turnips and have a garden – get you a packet of White Ball turnips. They’re spectacularly good!
No – I haven’t changed my blog to a garden show! 😉
Let’s do a card, shall we? This one took me back to one of the first stamp sets I got in the new catalog – in the Demonstrator pre-order. Pop of Paradise features a cute and saucy flamingo. I paired her with one of the cool sentiments in the set and gave her a little assist from the fun Love You Lots set. Take a look-see:

Happy Hawmmp Day! Do I spell that different each week…? Hmm… maybe.
Maybe you know – or don’t – my hubs and I have been married for….26 years! Yup – 26 years last April. And we were together for a few before that. Crazy, huh? Yes, I married him when I was 14 – it’s the only possible way this could have happened! 😉
Anyway – I miss him! I miss our routine. And knowing what he’s going to do or say before he does or says it. Even though sometimes that drives me nutso when I’m home! 😉
So – I decided to send him a card. And I used a fun little Host-Exclusive set, called Lots of Love. Now, this is a stamp set that it took me a while to decide I needed. I mean…turtles? Hedgehogs? Elephant? What the heck was I going to do with those?
Well – I still haven’t done anything with them – but this card uses the image that was the final deciding factor:
Seriously? Just about as cute as it gets. The set didn’t have the exact sentiments I wanted – but another of the Host sets: Gift of Love did. (didja notice how clever I was with the title of this blog post?? Go ahead and take another look – I’ll wait….)
So I used them both. Take a look-see:
