Get your filthy paws of my silky draw's

Good morning from the Lilac Thicket.  It is now 26° and the sky is overcast.  They are calling for, wait for it......SNOW!  1"-3" no less!  I mean I think we have had enough here in the Thicket!  Someone up there really is miffed with us.  I mean who could blame them, I just heard the rendition of the Star Bangled Banner as sung by some Hollywood Smut Queen at the Super Bowl, which I didn't watch.  I was watching David Tutera's My Fair Wedding!  I watched earlier the Ghost Hunter Marathon.  Okay, I did move off point but really that was embarrassing listening to that individual belt out our National Anthem and not even know the words.  I heard people making excuses but my thought is, don't you practice before you go out there, maybe have crib notes written on your hand, really she makes her living singing, ergo, a least "pro" maybe the proper term, if you get what I mean.  If you don't get what I mean that means you were born in 1999!  Okay I suppose it ticks me off that you get a singing porno queen to sing the National Anthem, that just seems wrong.  I don't listen to her music let alone watch her music videos as she bumps and grinds her way across a screen,  she is indecent and she doesn't care, so why should we care that we criticize her poor performance.  'nuff said.

So the poor quality photo above captures my progress on my ANN "A Christmas Tree".  I was so afraid that I was going to run out of fabric at the bottom but, yea... I didn't!  Still haven't decided to start with the beads yet.  I am dying to but am thinking about if I need to roll up the fabric on the Q-Snaps that the li'l beads could break under the clips.
So the most unusual sight awaited my blurry eyes as I opened curtains to peer out of my thicket this morning.  There was a herd of starlings on the roof of the house across from our beloved thicket.  They ringed the snow still on the roof and were I suppose eating/drinking the snow.  There were a couple of birds fighting in the gutter, making quite a racket.  It resembled my childhood kitchen table when my brothers and I squabbled over the last pancake!   
These were the snackie poo's that my Mommy (Hi Mommy, I love you) gave me for my birthday.  They are offered at Aldi's and they deserve 2 big thumbs up!  They are yum, yum, yummy!  There are 6 paks in a box 0.75 ounce each packet which has 90 calories.  I really like the Cinna-Swirl.  I am not sure how much they are but will definitely go up and stock up on them when I get paid. 
I did go up to Dollar General yesterday.  I got the cheap art that I mentioned in my last post.  The big white flower is 15" square and the 2 smaller framed pieces are 11" x13".  The mirror is 19" x 14".  The pictures are just cardboard the frames a light weight wood but I think they look richer than you would think.  I was careful to get the ones that weren't marred or bent.  The mirror and smaller pics were $6 and the larger pic was $8.  I want to hang them above the sofa. 
I spent about an hour in Dollar General.  They have some cute stuff.  I found a neat rich red wallet and a journal with a faux green leather cover.  I won't tell you I bought some silky drawers too!  So there are my treasures that I got yesterday and I am happy as a puppy with a bone.

So my wildly exciting life is about to become much MORE exciting...I get to go to work in t-minus 159 minutes...HOORAY!!!  So my gentle readers I am going to close and gently work myself out of my Lilac Thicket and enter this crazy thing we call civilization, well, the civil part might be overstating it.  God Bless Us, Everyone!
