(Had to share this beautiful bling on a horse I saw today.   I was volunteering at the horse show in the County Fair Arena for our Barn benefit)

unnamed-2-I have heard the way to improve a S’more is to use a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup with the graham and toasted marshmallow.  I’ve yet to try it, but I WILL!

-The yarn on my needles is Sweet Georgia Sock Yarn in Linen.

-I’ll take the Webs Gift card, thanks

-My middle name is Ann.   Don’t use it much

-Cash only at the canteen today at the horse show.

-I have never had Baked Alaska, but I WILL!

-Night time yarn name: Firefly Dance:  it would be yellow and deep blue

-I love foam hand soap

-I got a parking ticket March 1 in Lake Geneva.  I didn’t know it is the start date for meter parking each year here.

-Last week!  Dog N Suds.  Diet Rootbeer please.  (and I had a few of Fireman’s french fries)

Hope to see your answers, I love to read them on your blog or mine

  4. 1. I haven’t changed them but I have made them with marshmallows over a tea light.
    2. Handspun. I have a Tour challenge to beat.
    3. Webs. I need weaving yarn. It’s $$$$$.
    4. Amelia. I share it with my grandmother and great, great grandmother who was a refugee from Prussia.
    5. Hmmmm….can’t think of any. Even the little booths at the MDSW had card readers this year.
    6. Funny story: As a teen I tried to make one at 1 am in my mom’s kitchen with a sleepover friend. It melted in the oven and ran out all over the floor. What a mess. My mom was furious. I never lived it down.
    7. Starry, starry night. Blues, purples with gradient yellow and oranges.
    8. Mine!!! I need to make some fall soap. I’ve got some fabulous new scents.
    9. At the Metro about 10 years ago. I went in to pick up Daughter and came back with a $20 parking ticket for using the meters during rush hour. Who knew??? The sign was two rows over.
    10. Never but I want to. We have a Sonic in Annapolis and I want to drive in there and get some fries and a shake so badly. I won’t though. Too many calories…and I’m on a mission to lose a few this summer.
    Happy Monday!

  5. Have you ever changed up a S’more?
    I leave out the marshmallow, not a big fan of them. Of course, I replace with another chocolate bar. I AM a big fan of chocolate.

    *What yarn is on your needles? (That you will work on today?)
    Some handspun Finn is my TV knitting today, some Wisdom Yarns Stanza for my socks to go.

    *You can have a gift certificate to Knit Picks, Etsy, or Webs. Which do you choose? This was really hard, as I love both Etsy and WEBS. But I think I will go fro Etsy as it is fun for me, and fun for the maker to get the sale.

    *Last place you went that took cash only? Last Friday at the barber shop when I got my lovely $8 haircut. 🙂

    *Bar soap, foam soap or liquid hand soap? (in your bathrooms) Seventh Generation unscented liquid soap. It is very hard to find unscented liquid soap.

    *Last time you got a ticket? A very long time ago, not sure when, but I do remember the car I was driving, and it was a 1984 Chevette that I got rid of in 1992…best part? I had to go to court. Get to court, long line of people. Happen to be standing between two women who got tickets from the same cop saying that we were all going the exact same speed in the same spot. Judge tossed out all three cases. Ha!

    *Last time you had a car-hop bring your carry out to you? I have always wanted to do that but never been to a place that offered the service. 🙂

      1. Thanks, it was fun! Yeah, that was a good judge. He was some annoyed at the cop, clogging ip the courts. We all were supposedly going 2 mph over the “just a ticket but no court ” speed. We just happened to line up together or no one would have noticed.

  7. I normally don’t join in on Monday’s as I am usually home late from work but today with one canceled patient I can. I am only going to answer two of them, Webs for sure, I am not that fond of Knitpicks and Etsy can be a winner or a big loser. And my middle name, one that know one ever knows and I won every single guess your middle name contest in school is……….Letitia.

  10. Guess what? We share the same middle name, and boy when my mom used it plus my first and last name, I knew it was trouble. My dad often called me Judann. I have a fun recipe for a Baked Alaska Brownie…straight out of one of the old Betty Crocker books. Haven’t made it for ages, but it was always a hit.
