Although I don’t blog as often as I’d like, there are some weeks that I have enough to fill a Three Things Thursday post. Here are those things from this past week that are worthy of gratitude, smiles and a chuckle or two.
1 – Sweetzels Ginger Snaps
These things are fracking awesome! They’re super crunchy, about the size of a half-dollar and have that super awesome Ginger burn at the back of the throat. Apparently they’re seasonal in my neck of the woods, so I did what any sane person would do: I cleared the shelf! This was the entire stock of Ginger Snaps they had in the store and yes, I asked if they had more in the back. Now, I need to figure out how to make them last through next year because I’ll be a sad camper when they’re gone.
2 – Mantis on the Door
I was coming in from work one day last week and saw this dude hanging out on the screen. Actually think this is a dudette as the men are much smaller and not as green. Anyway, I ended up removing her from the screen door and put her down in the front garden. It’s not typical to see one so late into the Fall because they don’t like the cold. My daughter love seeing one so close and got a kick out of letting it sit in her hands. The dog unsuccessfully tried to eat it…. bad dog.
3 – KC and Lucy (repeat)
I’ve recycled this picture from my last TTT post. It was so damned awesome that I had to and couldn’t resist. They’ve both best buds and often sleep together on the bed in the living room. Lucy, the cat, is a nuclear ball of energy that has managed to get herself into everything bad. I’ve made repairs to several things including the fill line for the refrigerator ice maker/dispenser. That was a fun one, it started with the question “Why is the floor covered in water?” Yeah, not fun, but she’s so cute its hard to stay made at her for long. KC, the dog, probably chuckled and said “Oooooo, you got in trouble.”
