I haven't had the chance to write this morning because my life is so very, very difficult.

First, Clinton the Embroidery Machine and I have been working on a secret project that cannot be revealed.

Of course it will be revealed in its time, because really? What do I ever make that I don't share with y'all?

Do you remember last year when I made this (go a ahead and click over there...its short, I'll wait)......

.....Well, seems my "spelling issues" are not confined to fiber art of the felt kind.

Clinton the Embroidery Machine does everything for me. Well, everything except check my spelling.

I am still riding the learning curve on this wonder-machine, but seam ripping of embroidery letters is not the same as seam ripping a hem, I'm just saying.

Second (ly?), I'm very busy today supervising my Fix-It Man. Its a difficult job but I am glad to do it. I have to keep my eye on him because he's so dang cute in his Clint Eastwood shirt.

In fact, he is so easy on my eyes that I have a long list of things that need to be "fixed" around here-- insuring his sticking around awhile. Well, at least until next Monday when he has to go back to his day job. 

I am going to be so sad on Monday...but that's four days from now, so lets not talk about it...

am looking forward to tonight. I was going to watch my DVR'd Glee, but apparently some baseball game was on instead? Go figure.

Instead, the Fix-It Man (and the kids) have requested I make Alton Brown's Pound Cake for dessert tonight so I guess I'll do that, and catch up on a weeks worth of blog reading. Which is a lot like getting to go over to friends house for a quick visit...looking forward to that!

Happy Thursday!

Oh, you are too cute!

I happen to like your Giving Thakns banner. I think more people should give thakns.

Speaking of "thakns", I really love the little surprise you and Clinton gave each of us the other night. Mine's right in my kitchen.

Pound cake - now you're speaking my love language.

And I snort laughed over giving thakns and Chubby Dove's comment.

Amber said...

Giving Thakns. I'm with the Chubby Dove....I like it.

And pound cake...yummo.

I haven't tried Alton Brown's pound cake yet. I can imagine it's pretty good. I happened to find Paula Deen's pound cake a couple of years ago and haven't looked at another recipe since. :) Maybe someday I'll try Alton's. maybe...

Thakns for my most special surprise..I was admiring it today and then proceeded to threaten the children if they wiped their grimy little paws on it. (I really didn't threaten my precious children...really, I didn't ;) )

Sorry about Clinton and his lack of spelling knowledge. I'm sure the pound cake will make it all better.

That is so funny! I love your banner! The mistake is absolutely something that I would do!

Speaking of Pottery Barn, at PBK they have a new giving thanks November advent countdown/banner thingy that is awesome, with a price tag to match. I know you and Clinton could totally make that one too!

Today I am Giving Thakns that I finally got caught up on my blog, after like 2 weeks of slacking. And also for a good report at the doctor on Tuesday! Yay!

Gretchen said...

I, too, love my gift from you and Clinton. She hangs (with thanks) in my kitchen and each time I walk by I smile remembering our fun night.

I wouldn't be a blogger if it weren't for spell check.

Tiffani said...

ding dang, Clinton, where's your spell checker!!??

I remembered that banner and I do love to give thanks AND thakns...they are equally important!

Can't wait to see what you're making/fixing!! ;)

Love the "Home Improvement" style pic of The Mister. It made me laugh.

I have my beautiful "reminder" from you & Clinton hanging on my oven door handle & my microwave is right above. They are situated between my sink & fridge. I know, more info than you ever cared to know! Except, that location means I see it very often & love it!
I too loved the pic of your hunky man (missed seeing the face), & it's so neat that you love him so much.

Gretchen said...

I'm chuckling too hard to write anything well constructed or pithy.

Ah, well...I'm thaknful for you.
