A Very Placid Day

We had to go out and stock up on food for the pantry and fridge and I took some pictures of  this magazine. I would like to duplicate this bouquet at home using artificial florals.

Entertain and Celebrate is one of the Hoffman Media publications. They publish Tea Time and Victoria. E and C, though a beautiful mag, was too expensive. I can't get used to the magazines being up there at $13.00. That is more than some books.  I don't know why they are not sold after they are out of date, at Dollar Tree or somewhere. 

I saw this at HL the other day:

And for one of my grandchildren, here is a cute racoon painting:

I have a long list of very serious and helpful topics to address on blog and video when I get time.

Until then, the Bible says laughter is good like medicine, so here are some laughs for you:

I heard something funny from a troll the other day. They said they tried to read my blog to see what I was all about but they got sick looking at all the flowers and lace and wicker in the pictures of my home.
I'm going to retire and live off my savings. Not sure what I will do the second week.
President Donald Trump was walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo when a possible assassin stepped forward and aimed a gun.
A secret service agent, new on the job, shouted, "Mickey Mouse!"
This startled the would-be assassin, and he was captured.
Later, the secret service agent's supervisor took him aside and asked, "What in the world made you shout Mickey Mouse?"
Blushing, the agent replied, "I got nervous. I meant to shout, "Donald,  duck!"

Mr. S. and I have had an argument.  He asked me find him some extra pillows to elevate his foot while he reclined .  When I brought them,  he said he did not need them. I noticed he already had got some from someone else's bed, and I said, "I made that trip for nothing, and now I have to put these extra pillows away."  He replied that he did not ask for any extra pillows.  I thought he was going daft (as that is supposed to happen sometime in your 70's, isn't it?), as he insisted he didn't want any.

 After I pointed out that he had  some extra ones under his feet that were not there when he sent me to go hunt for extra pillows, he started to realize he was was in error, he was caught, and he was wrong, so he tried to get out of it by saying, "I think you misunderstood, on account of the fact I probably failed to pronounce the letter "s".

Ladies, don't even TRY to figure that one out.  It is just what he does when he is trying to get out of something. He probably missed his calling. That sounds more like a lawyer or a senator or maybe a witness when he gets tired of being cross-examined.

It is fun to use a picture as a guideline for something you want to create! But paying $13 for a magazine is way too much! I enjoyed your funnies, laughter is always good medicine 😊

I have been coming to your blog for such a long time because I love your pretty home and the crafts you post. I made a housekeeping notebook for my granddaughter with your table settings and other home ideas.when my husband died from cancer your Christian posts uplifted me. You are a blessing and so many of us value what you post. I always look forward to your decorating posts especially. We have had many tea parties inspired by the ones you shared.

I had so much fun laughing at the last story, I went back, read it again, laughed once more.

YAY! Happy Wednesday! ;-)

Lydia said...

Yeah, right?!

Emmarinda said...

Yes, still trying to figure that last one out. It's a brain teaser for sure!

Lydia said...

It doesn't seem to be a comment designed to figure out, but to distract, confuse, and leave you in a crazy mental state. ;-)
