Continued Journey into Dishcloths ~ Saturday AM, July 14th, 2012

 Saturday AM, July 14th, 2012

I plan on having a simple kind of day.  Dishes, etc.  ha ha.  I do have a new recipe that I want to try today.  Publix was demonstrating it the other day and so I grabbed the recipe. I really need to go to the store, but I don't feel like it.  Maybe later today, or even tomorrow.  I also have another pattern for a dishcloth that is a retro one that I want to try my hand at.  That may happen today too. ha ha.

I am on a roll.  I love this pattern for the dishcloths, which can also be used for washcloths as they are cotton, and so soft. 

If anyone has a pattern they would like to share with me, I would love it.. 

Here is the pattern for the ones above if anyone is interested in it.

An interesting Personal Ad ~ July 2, 2012

"What would be an interesting personal ad to read in the newspaper?  Imagine who might send it, then write the ad."

This prompted me to think.  What would be interesting.  I am such a scatterbrain that everything and anything is interesting.  Heck, the back of the cereal box is interesting.  I really need a life.  ha ha.

Maybe the personal ad would go something like this:

I am looking for someone that will age gracefully with me.  I am kind, caring, considerate, and have a lot of love to give.  I love running on the beach and long walks. I really don't want to put down a physical description as I don't want to be judged on my looks.  A picture will be sent if you really need to see it.  If that's the case, then don't bother to respond, as I know what you care about.  I am looking for someone that is loyal, kind, considerate, and wants to love me for the rest of my life. If you had a flexible schedule or stayed at home that would be great.  I do need a lot of attention, but the reward will be yours because you will never find anyone more honest or loyal than I will be for you.  I will protect you with my life, as I would expect you to do for me.  I don't ask for much and I don't require much.  Just love.  Pure and simple love. 
If possible please respond to the American Humane Society.  

I really want someone to make me feel safe and wanted.

"The Dog".... Gosh, if only it was that simple.

Please jump on in and add your ad.  I would love to hear it.  Don't be shy.  I don't bite.  Get it..  The dog for the ad, don't bite.  ha ha.  I crack myself up sometimes...  ha ha
