Im a little bored today...

flamingo
oh my!  two posts in one day... its cause dare I say it?  Im BORED!!  its beautiful outside.. but I got a little burned at the beach yesterday so I really dont want to be out in the sun today.  hubby worked all day and I puttered and played.  and made the flamingo thats been in my head.  I did a needle felted one and I also started one out of paper clay.  when he hardens I'll finish him.   

another in the works
YOu do know theres something wrong with me that I would walk around with my camera all day taking pictures of what ever I'm doing.. or eating!  this morning I had breakfast on the porch.. then I made watermelon kiwi salsa for lunch.. and I ate most of it! For dinner, I made that squash potato bake that everyones been pinning on pinterest and posting on face book.  I have to say it was really good.  I loved it.  Hubby didnt feel quite the same way.  hes not a fan of potatos.  Oh well  too bad for him!  I'll surely be making it again sometime.  In anycase... you see.. I took pictures of it all.

LOL-= You are my kinda girl- camera attached to the hand. I think that flamingo is darling. We have a family thing about flamingos. There is always a joke afoot with them. Perfect fun! xo Diana

Hi Viv!!!

A little sunburn will make us steer clear of the sun, won't it? Love that little flamingo:) Have a blessed week, HUGS!

Okay. I HAVE to know. WHERE IS YOUR CAPE, SUPER WOMAN? I do not, for the life of me, know how you manage to work, do household stuff, have all the family over or go to all the places you go, and STILL manage to create SUCH DARLING STUFF! Sigh ... my HERO! (OOOPS. That would be heroine. Sorry.) I'm not even a FAN of flamingos, yet YOURS are so adorable! And I tried the watermelon kiwi recipe. YUM, YUM, YUM! Ray & I LOVE IT! THANKS! I like trying 'natural' salsas because I know there aren't any additives and I can control the salt portion. Last year I ate my way through a summer of pineapple chili, cilantro salsa. YUM! And I STILL want to sneak into your family. Think Big Tony would let me be family if I did my share of the housework? LOL! I love you, Vivvy!

Haha! I take pictures of my food, too. My family is a little weird that way. My husband likes to take pictures of his plates of food and text them to his bachelor brother. Then the brother wants to come eat over here! Funny, huh? I love the flamingo. I keep thinking I want to try my hand at felting, too! It looks so cute!
Blessings,
Susie
