"The star on my belly is much bigger than thars"...

I can't seem to find any Seuss books around my house--so for some unknown reason--that is the only line I can remember from ANY Seuss book besides Green Eggs and Ham is the one up above. Which I am sure has some significant deep meaning. Anyways.......


I am a great lover of all things random. Random makes me happy. So as I was driving up my hill the the other day---I found this tree--I mean--it has to have been there for years--but something drew my eye to it then. I looked over and there it was--a Who tree!! I was soo excited! (also dark and meaningful) I ran in and told my daughter who promptly informed me that Who's live on dust specks--not trees--duuhh. Way to deflate my excitement.



Please tell me there is someone out there that recognizes that this looks like a Montana version of a tree from a Dr. Seuss book!! Maybe I will paint the trunk with polka dots and stripes and then it will look more like a Seuss tree.



Sorry for this seemingly divergent rambling. My husband comes home tonight, after being gone for 4 weeks and I am the Enrichment leader in our ward and I have a board meeting tomorrow at which I am supposed to have all these crafts done so we can decide on and plan some mini classes. I am such a procrastinator--AAAHHH! I am very distracted and stressed and happy, all at the same time. Also--I haven't taken pictures for awhile so the caramel and the tree is all I got. I am off to glue myself to my craft table..............



Oh look--I also took a couple of Dead Man's drop that I mentioned in my gratitude shout out--enjoy!

That is a house on the top right

Being the Enrichment Leader is rough!! Been there!! Are you planning a Super Saturday perhaps? No worries, you oooozzzz talent. And thanks for all the pics of home!! Every time you post pics of home I get a bit jealous and homesick. I am so glad you started a blog. I love to hear about your life and the kids.

That is a Dr. Seuss tree, definitely! It is a giant version of a dust speck. I'm glad you do random, because random is fun!

Happy reunion with the honey, and good luck with the board meeting!

The stars on their bellies that were bigger than thars is actually from the Sneeches! I love this post though. That tree is something else!! Love it.

Thanks for stopping by today. No, I don't think any less of you, but people might of me! They might think I'm a druggie now but I have had so many surgeries and too many stories about Percocet go along with them! I quit counting surgeries at 25, it was too depressing! Thanks again for your kind comments!
