Wednesday chatter.....

This drab-grey afternoon, found us running local errands! I slipped into JoAnn Fabrics and just couldn't resist buying these acrylic kool-aid colored paints! They were .50 cents a bottle. I have two bird house gourds, that I'd like to paint... I'm thinking something whimsical-- in turquoise and lime green! I'm also thinking of doing more with water-color painting. I'm teaching a book class to early elementary aged children on Friday... the lesson I have planned is around a couple of Beatrix Potter stories! I plan to use the water color techniques in class. It should be very fun. What is it about Springtime that makes me think of Peter Rabbit? Jemima Puddleduck and Mr. McGregor?

While Tommie plugged away at math today...I finished my penny rug! Actually, we had a race to see who could finish their project first? Who do you think won?

Better late then never... here's a snap of our Saint Patrick's Day tree! It is just beautiful at night---when every thing's dark! I plan to keep it up a few more days!

In People Magazine this month... there is a coupon for a free box of Milkbone dog snacks. I was also able to get another bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce free, too. I had a .50 cent coupon...Kroger sells a small bottle for .99 cents... Kroger's doubles. Hence, free. smile, wink, nod.

I love the paints. So bright and pretty. Makes me think summer is already here. I've got my easter tree up- but haven't put it's decorations on it yet. Maybe next week sometime!
