I πŸ’œ DandelionsΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Welcome back πŸ˜ƒ

This post started out as a collection of ‘Random Things’, with just a tiny Dandelion seed blowing across it. 😊 But Dandelions are so amazing, I decided they deserve their own space. 😍

So I set out and found some Dandelion-related funnies, pictures, inspirations, and a poem to share with you πŸ’œ

First…a funnyΒ 

Such a lovely sentiment…

An artsy idea…Β 

I think this would be an awesome gift for grandparents, aunts, uncles, if you let the wee ones ‘paint’ the flowers with their fingerprints 😍

Here’s a craft idea…

(I found this on ‘crafttricks.com)

More…12 things to make with Dandelion Flowers Β to be exact πŸ˜‹ were published by Β  Β  Β Β  The nerdy Farmwife

Here’s where I go in my dreams 😊 

I’ve had this dream of a little house, surrounded by Dandelions, for a long time now… Β  Β  Β  Living on ‘My Dandelion Farm’ πŸ’•

A little ‘Folk Art’ Doodle from last year 😁

A field of a hundred wishes 😌

 Beautiful words about a beautiful flower 😊 


I could tell you of a story, of this flower that I saw.
Growing in a little crack, this flower had it all.

It’s beauty got me thinking, how quicky we forget.
It isn’t where we come from, it’s that we never quit.

The struggles that this flower faced, no quiver nor a fall.Β 
It rose above the chances,Β 
through this crack that was so small.

The only will was life, and the chance that it may “be”.Β 
Exist in ways intended, and truly live as free.

This dandelions beauty, gives me the strength to know,
content with where I’m rooted,
and will to always grow.

~ Ricky LouisΒ 

I hope you enjoyed my ‘love letter’ to all Dandelions πŸ’œ

Have a wonderful rest-of-the-day 😘

See you tomorrow!

Until then πŸ’•

Your Weekend Chuckle πŸ˜†

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Welcome back!


I couldn’t help but laugh at this  πŸ˜‚


Hehehe 😜


Okaaaaay 😳


True story 😁

I hope these funnies brought a smile or two to your lovely face 😊

Now my yarn and hook are calling me πŸ™‚

I shall be back tomorrow…and hope you will too! 😍

Until then πŸ’•

Just A Few Random Things πŸ¦„

Hello my lovely friends    πŸ’•  It’s been a minute or two, hasn’t it? Actually – almost a week 😳 Oh my! I’ve been a bit under the weather all week πŸ€’ so it’s not been the most productive one. But…I’m back πŸ€— and really glad you are too!

Today I just wanna show you a few random things I’ve thought about this past week…just to get back into the swing of it all. 😁

1. A few months ago I bought some succulents, and on the way home a few of the leaves broke fell off. Luckily I had just read an article about ‘Propagading Succulents’ πŸ˜ƒ So I thought I give it a try. And guess what? It worked! 😎 See….

Well, I guess I don’t have a picture from the beginning – this is about 3 weeks in 😊 It did slow down some after the initial ‘growth spurt’


But they are coming along nicely 😍

2. While searching for the ‘Wildflower’ poem last week – you might remember – I came across these lovely words from Rustine Hamlett  πŸ’œ

This makes me smile every time…

 I Tried To Write A Poem…

i tried to write a poem
a poem just for You
but when i sought to find the words
like hummingbirds, they flew!

i tried to bake some cookies
a dozen, just for You
but before they hit the oven
we’d shared the yummy goo

i tried to paint a picture
a picture just for You
but the colors all ran out of line
like sunlight through the dew

i tried to plant a garden
wildflowers, just for You
but when i’d tilled and sown the soil
too tall for me they grew!

i tried to find a treasure
a treasure just for You
but when i looked inside the chest
i found a gift from You

i tried to tell a story
a mystery, just for You
but when i lost the villain’s trail
’twas You who found the clue

i tried to catch some fireflies
green starlight, just for You
but you smiled, and set the lightning free
when i brought my lamp to You

i tried to find the perfect shell
a conch shell, just for You
but all i found were little stars
who tickled like You do!

i tried to find an angel
an angel just for You
but when i told her who You were
she said “you can’t have two”

i tried to catch a falling star
a wish, made just for You
but when i did, You said “My dear,
all I’ve wished for is in you…”

i tried to write a poem
a poem just for You
this time i found all the words
to tell the world of You

Lovely, isn’t it? 😊

3.  Walking through our garden this morning, I noticed how strong the Wisteria grew this Spring and Summer 😍 Can you see how tightly it wove itself around the trellis? 

4. Now a few things worth mentioning…but -sadly- without pictures (for now). This shall be corrected real soon 😁

~ A few WIPs are almost done – mostly smalls. I’ve been working on double-layer dishcloths (worked in Tunesian Stitch in the round! 😳 It’s supercool…wait ’til you see this (I might be a smidge overexcited πŸ˜‚)

~ I baked my bread for the ‘Fantastic Bake-Off’ πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ It’s fabulously delicious πŸ˜‹ I’ll show ya tomorrow.

~ I collected some hilarious things for tomorrow’s ‘Weekend Chuckle’ 😜

So – that was my week in a quick review 😊 

I sure hope you enjoyed it a bit, and come visit again tomorrow! πŸ€—

Until then πŸ’•

Your Weekend Chuckle πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Happy weekend! πŸ˜ƒ

Here the sky is grey, it’s raining, I hear the occasional thunder in the distance. Perfect weather for TV watching (‘Monk’ Marathon…yay! πŸ˜„), yarn and hook. πŸ’œ

But first – this… πŸ˜† 


No comment 😏


I never took Spanish classes…but that doesn’t sound right 😁


Well…this took me a moment longer than I wanna admit πŸ˜‰

Did you enjoy today’s funnies πŸ€“

Have a fabulous day full of sunshine, love, and giggles 😍

Thanks for stopping by πŸ’œ I’ll be back tomorrow, and hope you will too! 😁

Until then πŸ’•

It’s a fabulous day πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends  πŸ’• Welcome back!

The weatherman promised us a perfect Friday 🌞 And – for a change – he was right πŸ˜‰

We woke up to temperatures in the 50s…no humidity πŸ™†πŸ» Yay! 

So we walked the dogs for a good hour. πŸ™‚ And then – because they’re not the fastest walkers…everything is too interesting, everyone is a friend πŸ™‚ – then we walked a beautiful trail nearby. Just trees, bushes, wildflowers 

We passed a cornfield 

 It’s a bit blurry – but you can see how tall the corn is 😁
Once home my daughter stopped by for breakfast before she left town for a weekend on the water.  Not as fancy as it sounds …it’s a raft on a Missouri River πŸ˜… but I’m sure she’ll have a ton of fun. 

After I waved my goodbyes, I grabbed my yarn and hook 

This little idea for a ‘Teapot Cozy’ has been flitting around in my head for a few days now, and I had to see if it can be done. Well, guess what…it can be done 😁

Now I have to recreate it 😳 ’cause every cozy needs a front and a back. πŸ˜‹

Once that’s accomplished…this time around I’ll make sure to write down every step 😏 – you will find the pattern right here for ‘Small Project Sunday’. 

But first I’ll watch an episode of ‘Monk’ – one of my favorites πŸ€“

I hope you’re having a fabulous day too! 🌞🌻🌾 

Thanks for visiting and reading. πŸ€— I hope* you enjoyed everything. 

I’ll be back tomorrow with your ‘Weekend Chuckle’ 😁

Until then πŸ’•

* I really don’t like to repeat a word in two consecutive sentences. I did get out my Thesaurus to find an alternative ☹️ Nothing! That reminded me of my favorite meme though 

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Still cracks me up! 

Trying this Bloglovin Thing

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

This is a test  πŸ€“ Apparently I have to tell you all that I’m now connected to Bloglovin and paste this here –

<a href=”https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/18430893/?claim=w3vm26m4pr4″>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

– so this blog links to that site. 😳

If this actually works, I’m  – quite frankly – gonna be quite pleased…maybe even a bit proud – ’cause computer savvy I’m not 😝

UPDATE: It worked! πŸ™†πŸ» πŸ˜† A big ‘Thanks’ to Katerina at Matylda’s Barn for nudging me in the right direction 😍

Alrighty – that’s it for now – I’ll be back later with some crochet news!

Until then πŸ’•



So about Yesterday…😏

It sure was a bit of a frazzled one! 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• 

If you saw yesterday’s ‘Monday’ post – you know I was full of energy, ready to tackle the new week! πŸ‘ΈπŸ»

And it started well enough – I took a nice walk in beautiful weather (morning temps in the 60s 😎) with a friend and our dogs. 

Checked cleaning the bathroom off of my to-do list βœ… Apropos – did you know that Dawn in warm water, followed by a little Squeegee action leaves your mirrors and windows sparkling? Try it sometime…it’s great. πŸ™‚

As I stood there, admiring my handiwork, the universe was like ‘Oh, so you think you’re on top of things, eh? Not so fast!’ 😳

Plan was cleaning βœ…, crocheting, and blogging about the crocheting. 

Well, guess what? Didn’t happen. πŸ˜• I picked up the ‘crochet-along’ ….got nothing. Looked at various yarns thinking maybe I start something new….nope. Crickets! 

Alright then – I just take my Granny Squares, they need to be joined together. That’s when I lost my ability to think logically. It was 9th grade Mathclass all over again. Remember the ‘Pythagorean Triple’? It’s sooooo simple, but it took me weeks to finally get it. No idea why…’cause it really is simple. Anyway – I want to join the squares on-point. Easy enough, right?! Ha – you would think so (and you’d be right πŸ˜‹). I laid them out, joined three or four together…and had a regular corner. Ugh πŸ˜‘ I’m embarrassed to say, it took a few tries…and then – Hallelujah! – it worked! See…

I don’t wanna jinx it, but I think I got it now 😝 

Did that ever happen to you? That you know it’s doable, other people are doing it – but it just won’t come together? Please tell me it happens to other people too! πŸ˜”

By then it was late afternoon, dinner went well 😏

I checked my blog-view numbers…there’s a good chance I’m slightly obsessed with them 😁 

See…my goal here is to up my numbers every month. And I have been since I set that goal in January 😍 So I check it…666 😳 Now, I’m not superstitious – I heard that’s bad luck 😏 – and I love the fact that I upped my number from last month by 240 πŸ™†πŸ» and I truly appreciate each and every view….but one more would’ve been nice 😜 Goals!!! 

There were small positives though…🌈

– Did I mention my sparkling bathroom πŸ˜›

– I had a lovely sit-down and chat with my daughter πŸ’•

– I won almost $100 at the casino last night πŸ€‘ ⬅️ I’ve always wanted to use that one!

– I finally found a good…no, great book! πŸ€“ After the duds I picked up over the last few months, I thought I had read all the good ones 😊

Thanks so much for stopping by! I wish you a great week full of inspiration, success and love ❀️ 

The next part of the crochet-along will be here tomorrow πŸ˜ƒ

I hope you’ll be back for that 😍 And don’t forget to tell me about your ‘brainfog’ moments! Please! I neeeeeed to hear them. πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ 

Until then πŸ’•
