wednesday's child

Remember that old nursery rhyme?

Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

(Don't ask me why I think of this stuff, it always happens when I try to think of a title for a post)
How true does this ring with you or with your family members? I'd have to say, in our family, it's pretty accurate. Strange, huh?

Anyhoo, there's a box I finally got unpacked today and in it, I found this...

It's a little Bent Creek freebie from years and years ago (I don't have it any longer), didn't know what to do with it, so the finisher made it into a scissor keep for me.

Meanwhile, back in blog-blog land, Siobhan gave me this little award
(thanks gf!)

I'm supposed to list five addictions, so here goes

1. All things stitching related (that's a given, right?)
2. Lotions and hand creams.
3. Starbucks Carmel Frapps.
4. Internet (stitching, and foodie blogs).
5. All things Pug.

I'm not tagging anyone else since I am usually so bad about playing along myself....I've enjoyed reading these on various blogs though :-)

The ice is melting around here...it wasn't too bad last night while at work, but the pugs were none too happy about the melting part this morning...

(note on the mop bucket...it's not ours, it was back there when we moved in, we just haven't gotten rid of it yet. I should be embarrassed, but actually, it's kind of appropriate considering the melting ice and the pugs who hate wet feet, lol!)

Love the pups--kind of a 'oh my gosh, look at what is on my paws!' sort of pic! Great stitching, as always! YGG!!

Great scissor keep! Such a good idea!
Hey, we were just talking about you!! Penny in San Antonio, shops at LNS I shop at, was asking a friend about a recipe for pecans and her friend say to go to your site. Penny is about to start a blog and she had already discovered your blog and got so excited that her friend was also familiar with it! Small world!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog today:) Hugs!

That's a pretty little scissors keep.

I love the pics of your pugs. There's a lot of things mine does that I can't help but wonder if it's laughably universal, and after reading your blogs--yup, I guess it is!

Hi Andrea!! Happy Valentines Day! You moved? Sorry, sooo out of the loop here. Love your little scissor holder. :)

That poem is very accurate in our family too, we have a Monday, Friday and Sunday and wouldn't you know I'm a Wednesday and I like the alternate version better instead of "full of woe" I like "Wednesday's child is in the know". Whatever! The pug babies are so darling.
