J is for Just

Just amazingly generous-
Cathy-Cate sent this… and I didn’t even win her contest!  Cathy raised all sorts of money for some good causes and gave away lots of wonderful things.  She is just so amazingly generous!

Aside from the yarn being a color I love, and absolutely wonderfully squooshy, I laughed and laughed at its name ‘Twisted’. As did my non-knitting, non-blogging pal who was here when it arrived (she has been mentioned here before, my evil twin). The cow pie cracked me right up too. I think I will wear that tatoo on June 7 at the tae kwon do seminar. Hopefully it’ll still be on the next day for Fiber Frolic. Thank you so much Cathy!

Just ducky?

all his ducks in a row… This is another thing that cracks me right up. The kiddo has a thing lately for these little ducks. If he really likes you he’ll give you one, but not one of the ninja or ‘mafia’ ducks.

Just hilarious (well, to me, thought you might think so too…).

This drawing was given to me yesterday by a 4 year old. I’ve been passing along some of my kiddo’s things that I figured she would enjoy… dinosaur books, a grow your own bacteria farm, that sort of thing.

It is an animal rehabilitation clinic!  Maybe she should job shadow Mel?

Just beautiful

(not the photo, but the lilacs themselves and their amazing smell)…

get your Jim Nabors thing going and sing ‘do you smell what I smell‘ (you can go on to make up the lyrics… a flower a flower, growing in the yard…).

More just beautiful but fuzzy…

The flower pic that came out the best was the one of the solomon’s seal taken at 10 pm last night!

Just wonderful
This scrub. I apologize that I don’t remember where I first found the link, it was from some blog that I don’t read often that sent me to another that I don’t read, that sent me here. I made a test batch and scented it with a bit of vanilla and some tangerine oil. The current batch is with rosemary oil. It feels Just Wonderful and it’s great for my dry skin… I don’t even need to use lotion after!

Warning! It’s not so bad when you scrub one foot, but when you put that one down to do the other, be careful, it gets slippery in the tub. I was making sure I scrubbed out the tub prior to the kiddo using it, but dh asks one day how long this oil in the tub thing is going to go on. Upon which I realized, all I really need is an emulsifier… no need to totally scrub the tub. So now there’s some dish soap up there, and I give the tub a super quick wipe down. Slippery problem solved. And it seems the tub is staying cleaner longer too.

Not sure how this idea got in my head. Or rather how this all got on my head, but today it was eggs and oil in the hair. Anybody need to know how to wear a t-shirt on your head, just ask… You think it’ll be the next hot fashion statement??

DH is really the one working on the roof today, but he wanted an action shot.

I wondered what it all looked like…

    Oh my – that post is chock full! I want to know if all those poor injured animals and birds have stories behind how they met with such fates? Rough day in the wild, it looks like.

    I’m glad you liked the ‘thank you’ package! I picked the yarn out especially for you, it’s special (no, not because it’s “Twisted”). Love the flower pictures, especially the alien dandelions (“They’ve Landed!”). And I’m taking your word that the 4-year-old wants to help hurt animals and doesn’t need therapy….

    Brave woman, photographing your hairdo! There are places I won’t go!
