Dear Bakeries,

Please stop teasing me with adorable Painted egg cookies.  Cookies are my weakness.  While I believe there is nothing as delightful as a tray of Christmas cookies, which include a variety of family favorites looking up at me,  I think Easter is working hard to make certain all my WW points for the day go to one amazing frosted cookie the size of an ostrich egg.  Please, stick to the Lamb cakes with coconut all over them.  Coconut doesn’t ever tempt me in the least.  There will be enough chocolate bunnies on sale NEXT week to tempt me, too. Perhaps I’d best not go grocery shopping for a week.  I have yet to stoop to ordering sweets on Amazon….

mirrormirorbear.jpgDear Adorable Grankitty Bear,

You are a delight.  You are a gift.  I’m concocting a way to keep you, but that would ruin Mother of the Year for me, again.   I’m just being selfish.  You are Zach’s buddy.   But, man you are cute and so well behaved.   And you make me look genius with your adorableness when I am taking your photos……0-10-1.jpeg

Dear Baby blanket knitters,

Ahem, you know who you are. …. (Regina, Meredith, Teresa etc) .  Thank you for proving that everything must not come from Baby Gap.  There is no replacement for a lovingly knit baby blanket.  And here’s a little secret, you may get saved for YEARS, by a mom who just cannot part with you, and is hoping to share it with another generation of lucky babies.  We know you are special.  Don’t forget it! (and the above is Regina’s gorgeous WIP for a charity blanket drive at her church)


Dear Rodney,
Thanks for the attempt to make my butt smaller while I groomed you the other day.   I did not appreciate the nip you took as I leaned over to pick your hooves.  I’m onto you buddy.  I know you are an amazing horse who works very hard, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why you are naughty being groomed. at times.  By the way, I had my fat jeans on so you only got the fabric and not my arse .

Dear Noble Knits,

Please don’t offer 99 cent patterns sales again.  I spent the better part of 2 hours looking at all 12 or more pages of patterns.  I have FOMO.  (fear of missing out) FOMO is limited to patterns thankfully, and not to other parts of my life.  I did choose a whole 2 patterns in the end.  The delivery price is higher than the two 99 cent patterns, but I really like the two I picked.

Have a great day blog pals!  We had a thunderstorm last night and I just loved it.

  1. Dear Kathy,
    Your letters are fun to read. My mother crocheted baby blankets for each of my babies, and I kept them. Two of them have been used already to bring home new little grandchildren from the hospital, and the last one will be used at the end of June. My mother-in-law knit little sweaters and booties for each baby, too, and I kept those. Such treasures.


  2. I sure do love making a baby blanket for loved ones new babies. We’re off to the beach tomorrow.. I’ll try to check in while gone. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂

  3. That photo of Bear is so precious!!!

    I’m not into cakes, cookies, or chocolate, but I know those dang PEEPS will be on sale starting Monday and they will be my favorite way ………………STALE!!!


  4. That is an unbelievably sweet picture of your little bear.
    I am not tempted by coconut, but chocolate? Oh yes. My sister and I were so bad this past week and then we’re going on vacation next week. I have decided to watch what I eat but I’m not going to worry about it until we get home.
    I’m glad that you didn’t have an actual bite. Bad horsey. Ha!
    I love that blanket of Regina‘s. Did she give the pattern name on her blog?
    Have a lovely evening my friend.
    Blessings, Betsy


  5. That pictue of Bear is completely, absolutely adorable. I love that blanket of Regina’s. Is the pattern on her blog? Glad you didn’t get nipped. Bad horsey!!! I only get tempted by chocolate. My sister and I were very, very bad last week. Now I’m paying for it. I have decided to enjoy our time at the coast next week though and worry about it after we get home.
    Take care my friend.

  6. How fun to cat sit! Bear has handsome fur. I LOVE iced cookies. My mum used to buy those for me and I sometimes buy them from Boudin’s, our favorite place b/c they’re so big. What a cheeky horsey.
