As the Shirelles sing it:  " Mamma said there'll be days like this..."

Somehow listening to them sing it makes the last two days just fade away.  It's been meetings or preparing for another meeting for two days and I'm glad it's over and I can listen to the music.  I can also get around to Patrice's place before everybody goes home. 

Quick, what's everybody talkin' about?

Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day?    Since I was in meetings yesterday the day wasn't really special.. I did get everyone a chocolate heart treat at the meeting I chaired yesterday. 

What was the last craft item that you made?  I don't seem to make a lot of crafts the way I used  to.  Too busy knitting - and going to meetings LOL

Are you planning a garden? Are you swamped with seed catalogs?  Oh, yes, we'll be having a garden this summer.  It will have even more of the good stuff that we had last year, I hope.  We don't do the seed catalog part, though.  My daughter-in-law usually raises up the baby plants for us when she's growing her own.  I So I guess she's poring over the seed catalogs.    

What cosmetics do you have in your purse? Off the top of my head, I would have said none.  But then I decided to look...does a tube of beeswax lip balm count as a cosmetic?  That's it...not very exciting, is it?

When there is a room to be painted in your home, who does the painting?  Anybody but me!  I am an extremely messy painter.  It spatters everywhere and I can't be trusted to stay in the lines. 

I'm off now to catch up on my own music.  Lesson today and I've not practiced as well as I could have.  Sometimes I feel like the naughty kid in the class who hasn't even got a dog to eat her homework.  Thanks Patrice for hosting another chat,  If you'd like to visit, just visit Everyday Rurality and sign in.

Mama did say that, didn't she? Good advice.

I'm not surprised you can't paint between the lines. I'd imagine the spectacular creativity that lives in your brain strives to be free. Splatters, drips and smears can be art...just look at Jackson Pollock!

I don't use makeup, either, though I really need it!!! Just a touch of lipstick maybe five times a year. I love the snowdrop photo with the water on it, and the second blue sweater, you mixed the colors so beautifully!!!

I refuse to paint also. Too big a pain in the butt for me. I hate to admit this but the bottom of my purse is littered with lipsticks.

I love the pattern for the baby sweater; it's in my queue! Also, I totally agree about books! I've been a library user since I was little; we were poor but thankfully my mom took me to the library. Now, our house is full of books, and even though I've bought two books for my iPad, I really prefer real books in my hands!!

I'm curious, what are your meeting about? I've been in meetings all week, too... of the volunteer variety for Historic Preservation in our area. But, meetings per se can be frustrating places sometimes! LOL!

I'm a sister of the beeswax lip balm club. LOL!

Have a great day! blessings ~ tanna

I can't wait to start our garden this year! Last year I was late to the party because I got too caught up in other things. I'm hoping to be on top of things this year. We get late freezes, so it's always tricky trying to figure out when to start everything.

What did the teacher said to the naughty girl - was you given detention ;-)

Have a great friday and weekend!

True words in song...there'll be days like this.
Sometimes it's weeks like this!
I like your idea of giving everyone a chocolate heart at the meeting, nice one!
Some weeks, I don't get nearly as much practice done as I intended or would like, and the day of the lesson seems to come around too quickly. But I think teachers of adults know that we do our best- we wouldn't be there if we weren't interested, right?
And I agree with Rudee re your creativity and painting!
