Yesterday Mom and I met my sister and nephew (6) in Rochester for the day. We went to two stores, and I was ready to be done. Do I have to turn in my woman card? Aren't women supposed to love shopping?

Anyway, I did come home with a few things. I found a frame on clearance. Woohoo! I printed the little chick photo (digitally altered with Elements Poster Edges filter) on a natural card stock.

We were in Michael's, ( craft/art supply type store) and Mom and my nephew were having a grand time playing with some feather boas. They were having such fun, I thought I should buy one for Mom. Then I saw the price tag, and how badly made they were, and they only had pink, red or white. Wheels started turning...hey, just buy some fuzzy yarn and knit one!

I think this is the first yarn I have purchased in 5 or 6 years. I'm afraid Cookie Monster may have died to make this yarn. Waaah!

Today's episode of "Bored Hen-wives": When we last left them last night around 9 pm, "flighty" hen was watching the chicks, and "mama" hen was on the eggs. (I think we need real names for them. Mama hen is all black, and flighty hen is black with brown speckles on her breast. Suggestions please!) This morning when I went out to the coop, mama hen was watching the chicks and flighty hen was on the eggs. I wish I had a coop cam to see what goes on in there!

How about Blanche and Esther? I don't know why i like those names but they seem to fit hens!! smile

I agree about the feather boas, i looked at them one year to wrap a tomato cage and hang xmas lights down the center to make a "lit feather tree" which does look nice..but we will not discuss the cost of the boas! lol The knit one will look nice and yes, cookie monster has to be running around naked somewhere!

I'm partial to Scarlett and Melanie, but I don't like "Gone with the Wind", so I don't know why. I guess it's the flighty nature part. I hate shopping, too. Unless it's for yarn;-)

Nope, you don't have to turn in your woman card. I too cannot stand to shop; I do the majority of my shopping online whenever possible.

I'll bet your mom will enjoy her fun fur feather boa.

psst. cookie monster isn't real. he's a muppet.

Our two cats are(were-one died) named Sophie and Annabelle. It would crack me up (no egg pun intended) to have chicks named after cats.
