procaffeination

early morning is the very best time of the day, innit?!?
well, for ME it is, anyway... 

however, Some People Who Shall Remain Anonymous but her initials are Auntia are downright mean in the morning...

it is best to Leave. Her. Alone. till she's finished at least one cuppa sumpin...

i bought this cup for Auntia's morning coffee...
truer words were never spoken
and when i finished this quilt...
well, THOSE greens don't match!!!
i gave it to her to wrap around her shoulders on chilly winter mornings ... that way i can hug her without endangering Life and Limb...

i really shoulda put on some shoes before i stepped outside

cuz Life is safer that way...

Cuppa Sumpin was pieced and bound by me 
and was quilted with steaming cuppsa sumpin by Liz Bowman

A yawn is a silent scream for coffee

pretty is as pretty does

my mom used to bake the best oatmeal cookies in the Whole Wide World... 
the only thing that was wrong with them was that they were ugly... 
seriously ugly... 
one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do...
my friends made fun of them cuz they were so ugly... 
two can be as bad as one ... it's the loneliest number since the number one
but they also loved to eat them and would ask me if there were any of my mom's ugly oatmeal cookies in my lunch bag... 
now THAT'S what i call me a breakfast bowl of oatmeal!!!
and if i was feeling generous i'd share one or two...
my mom's ugly oatmeal cookie recipe is getting kinda ugly, innit?!?
dianne's mom's ugly oatmeal cookies - now YOU can bake some, too, cuz pretty is as pretty does...

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

Gumdrop

Gumdrop - my oldest granddaughter - has found her inner elf

she told me that she is my own personal Elf On The Shelf and not to try any Funny Business because she WILL be reporting back to Santa...

i get no respect...

sigh...
