That perches in the soul,
remember these from my Christmas decor?
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
well I kind of liked them
enough to want to keep them out all year round
so after eating 3 pickles
some jam on crackers
and discarding some plum sauce and capers because I absolutely positively was not going to have that on crackers ( and they may or may not have been in the fridge far too long by the way I gagged cleaning out the jars )
I put my silver garland in these
Different sizes are best I think
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
I painted all the lids with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - pure white
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
and than stencilled letters on the tops of them
I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
Now that I'm looking at it - I think the garland has to be packed away after all
but q-tips - cotton balls - bath salts - and maybe some tylenol lol - will be going in these for the bathroom...........
I have to get some Tortilla chips - because I have the perfect sized bottle of salsa in the fridge that I need to empty - now I'll be doing groceries with the size of jars in mind..............great, just what I needed for 2013 - another obsession. To go with the 3,482 I already have.
The next morning
John yells from the bathroom - Where are the q-tips?
John yells from the bathroom - I thought we had some left?
John yells from the bathroom - I hope we're not out of them
Suzan says - they're right in front of your eyes....................
John yells from the bathroom - WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!
Suzan says - check the O
John yells from the bathroom - WHAT THE HELL? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS
Suzan drags herself out of bed and plunks this down in front of him
Suzan says - I think you're going deaf, by the way
Suzan says - I think you're going blind too..................
John says - Do me a favor? LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU DO THESE THINGS PLEASE?
Suzan says - You really shouldn't be cleaning out your ears with q-tips honey - it's only going to
make your hearing problem worse...........................
