There's Gold in Them Hills


Last night, I hopped on to my bicyclette and whizzed down to the land'o'fabric for some organza 'cause I had a hankering to make these wispy flowers. My tires were flat so I was pooped from the forty minutes cycling around the Forest City. There is a shortage of air pumps in my area. It would seem as if I am going to have to throw the bicycle in the back of the truck ASAP and drive to the nearest pump. That's ridiculous. Or is it ridiculous that I don't have a little hand pump? Anyways, I had just enough energy left from my jaunt to do up five flowers. Well, I could have done more, but my feet wanted to be propped up on the ottoman away from the open flame searing the tips of my fingers.

I discovered Grooveshark over the past few weeks, and it's GOLD. I say that because, although J has downloaded a bajillion songs on our network server (every family of four has a network server, right?), they are ALL his music taste. I swear that the longer we are together, the more different our tastes become. Books, music, movies, food, you name it. We never read the same books. He has three slots on the disc changer in the car, and I have the other three. The last time we went to the theatre together, we caught The Simpsons Movie because I relented, and I was so upset that I had paid to watch that shizzle. So he has downloading skillz and I don't. That's where Grooveshark comes in - it's free, no registration required, and it's easy! Right now, I am getting my Ron Sexsmith fix. Sweet.
Cheers! It's Friday!

I think your flowers are even prettier than the original. What will you use them for? I can imagine them on a pretty headband for your girls.

Ooh, a headband!! Fantastic idea, Laurie! I was thinking barrettes, hairpins, and brooches. I shouldn't have a problem coercing the littlest, but the eldest is too cool for school these days. She's all jeans and tees and has no place for pretty flowers! :) Her loss.

Pretty flowers!

I will have to check out this Grooveshark!

My hubby and I have completely different tastes in books/music/movies as well, though we can usually find some common ground.

Except in books. I am a reader, he isn't at all.
