Silly Sippys

SF and I were having an argument.    A silly, little argument, really.   I’m embarrassed to tell you the topic, silly.

Okay, if ya really wanna know, we were arguing over the color of the sippy cups he just bought.

Uh, huh.   Sippy cup colors.   Nice….

Well, at least this time I wasn’t the only passenger on the crazy train!!   SF never goes on that ride with me!!

See, here’s the new sippys he bought.

slob, humor, 2 sippy cups

Looks deceptively all purple.

 

So, understandably, he thought they were all purple.   But!!   I had already opened one, and given PP a drink in it.   So, I KNEW there was a green top on it!

WE argued for about 15 min. over the phone.   {Why no, I didn’t have anything else to do!    Why do you ask??}   Finally, I took a pic, and sent to him, to prove I was right!

slob, humor, purple and green sippy

Haha! There’s green in them there lids!

 

He capitulated!    That almost never happens!!

So, please forgive me if I crow a little!!

 

Uh, Melinda??

What now??

Actually, the top isn’t green.   It’s purple.   The ring is green.

 

Oh alright, so we were both right.   How often does that happen??

slob, humor, grandmother linky

I’m trying to figure out how to make it a real button!! Have patience, please!!

Meantime, here is the linky website.

Nony Need

I’ve talked about Nony, (Dana White) and my love

beating heart

LOVE!

for her several times.  I even wrote a post, (or 2, maybe 3?) about her and how she’s inspired and helped me.

So, after writing  Reminiscing, I told her.

Your comment on the post Stopping in the Middle of a Whole House Decluttering Project has a new reply

Here is your comment:

I wrote about you on my blog today.

You are seriously why people can now come to my door pretty much any time, and be able to find a place to sit! And use the facilities without me screaming: NO! Don’t go in there!
Finding you saved my life, homemaking wise.
I can never thank you enough.

ugly green iron chair

Ugly green, but it’s a place to sit!

(And it’s empty, available to actually sit in!!!!)
Here is her answer:
Oh Melinda! Thank you so much for sharing this. You have been through so much and come so far!

Dana White —— 2016-01-28 21:15:16

 

See why I love her??   She is a sweet, truly Christian woman, who gives herself to serve others.   We need more Nonys in this world!!

M&M

What did I just spend a whole evening doing?   Well, glad you asked.   Separating the good from the bad M&Ms.

What???   No, no, I meant the green from the good!

“Bad” and “Good” M&Ms

 

No! I meant the green from the red!

 

There are NO bad M&Ms!!

Just green is bad for my next party theme- Valentine’s Day.

just green M&Ms

JUST the “Bad” green ones

 

I need red,

just red M&Ms

JUST the “Good” red ones

 

white, pink and purple.

Unfortunately for me, all that’s on clearance right now is the Christmas candy.   But hey!    If all I have is red for Valentine’s, then we’re gonna pretend red is all we needed!

And, the “bad” ones taste just as good!

cupful red M&Ms

Cupful of just red M&Ms

 

 

Putting them in a purple cup MAKES them purple, right???

(What do you mean where are the green ones??   How should I know??   I’m innocent, I swear!   They were just right there!   What do you mean why is my hand green???   Dang it!   They promised they wouldn’t melt in my hand!!)

 

Join the party here:     

Blooming Blossoms or Blossoming Blooms

I couldn’t make up my mind, which one to use, so I did both.  Ya know, like a magazine sometimes has 2 different covers??  (Yeah, I think I’m an international sensation!!)

Here it is November, and my leggy plants are still blooming!  Let’s celebrate!

Here’s the leggy part! What long gams you have!

High-faluting hibiscus hollahs.   ( What is an “h” word for bloom?  Well, Melinda, Google has this cute little thing called a thesaurus, to find out!  USE it!)

High-faluting hibiscus in her heyday.  (How about that?)

coral hibiscus

White (oh boy, this one’s gonna be tough…)  can we skip this one and come back to it?  Thanx.

white periwinkles

white wonders?? Nope, doesn’t quite work.

Mexican (heather) matures.

Green grass growing great.  (Kapow!  Knocked that one outta the park!)

green grass, pipe

Nope, not my yard. But I forgot to take a pic of MY grass, so this’ll have to do.

(It is the canal, at my park, tho.      Please ignore the ugly pipe.  If only I knew how to crop pix, by myself!!)

God grows a great garden!!

Charity Chair

I have a gorgeous dining room set.  (Well, it will be once it’s all purple instead of green!)  I love the curves of the legs, and the airiness of the glass top.

dinette chairs(Please ignore all the clutter on the table, it was invisible to me until now.  Just play along, and no one gets hurt, capese?)

But I had a serious problem occur.  One of the chairs broke a leg.  How it did this, when I didn’t even know it went out running, I’ll never know.  Nevertheless, here it is, in it’s sad state.

broken chair leg

Poor thing, needs a cast.

broken dinette chair leg

So very tragic.

I wanted to put it out of its misery, like a horse, but how do you kill a chair??  So, I put it out by the road.  Fortunately, my SIL saw it, and questioned me.  He whisked it away in his ambulance van, and returned it to me the next morning, with its leg whole!  Miraculously, he knew a chair leg doctor that worked for thank yous from a sweet, blonde, (PP) baby.  Welded it up, and good to go!

Thank you SIL!!!!

welded chair leg

Better than new. I DARE it to break now!

Now, it’s on restriction, and forbidden to go out running ever again.  Next time, I’ll tie its feet together.

Beautifully Creative Inspired

Wearing O’ the Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Did you know St. Patrick was a missionary to the Druids in Ireland?  First, he was carried there as a slave, and later came back as a missionary.  He used shamrocks to explain the Trinity.  Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are 3 persons in the Godhead. Yet, 1 God.  It is a mystery, but true.

20150317_150832_Burst01

Leprechauns and all the green blarney was added later, to paganize a day celebrating a saint.(I just found out, his color was originally blue!    Whaaa???  We’ve been pinching the wrong people all these years!!)

Nothing wrong with having fun, and celebrating.  Just remember where the day really came from.

(Yup, that’s my real ear.  Hope I remembered to clean it good! )

irish bless

Shout out to Jerrod, (Kristen’s husband), Happy Birthday!
