The Cat in the Hat Came Back

Too cold to go out,
Too rainy to play,
So we sat in the house the entire day!

I racked my brain trying to remember more accurately the words to the Cat in the Hat before the action starts with Thing 1 and Thing 2 but couldn't remember at all! So I borrowed the "rhythm" sort of, and just to let you know, we didn't do anything all day but sit around! Because it rained off and on, pretty hard some times, so we just sat. It actually felt good to sit and do very little all day. I organized my craft cabinets and found some things I didn't know I had (story of her life, folks!) Eldy watched football and I knit some more ornaments for the craft show and tell later this week. It always amazes me how things can slide to the back of a cabinet, down and behind, never to be seen again until The Organizer (that's me, Sparky) starts cleaning. We're always asking each other, "Do you know where the _________(fill in the blank with your choice) is?"  "Nope, haven't seen it." Just like the Sock Monster swallows sock mates when doing laundry, the MH gremlin hides all sorts of things in all sorts of nooks and crannies. And then, like a cocktail shaker, it shakes the contents around while going down the road making it difficult to put your hands on whatever it is you are trying to find because it's no longer in the place you put it! (And that's her story, and she's sticking to it, explains E. I know otherwise!)

We didn't even do laundry!  That's tomorrow....We're playing the waiting, waiting game for the rally to officially start on Monday...There MIGHT be vendors setting up tomorrow, so we might check that out. We'll take another longer look at the town of Celina. It sits near a BIG lake, but I have no idea what lake it is. Wish we had a kayak....I'd go paddling!  Rode my bike around the neighborhood and found a nice park with a bike/walking trail so I got a little exercise today so as not to feel so guilty about getting and eating a pizza for supper!

Being as I have no travel photos for today, I will share what I did all day....Just one to have a LITTLE color in the blog today...See you tomorrow!
Three inches of "cuteness"


  1. Great job, Jeannie. You have been busy. Better get out there and visit that lake. Once the rally starts you two won't have any time. Enjoy your day!

  2. That's Grand Lake. We were on the other side at the state park at St. Mary's just last month. Pretty area and nice biking around there.

  3. Love your title, Love your rhyme

    Use your free time to check out and get a sea eagle. Easy to store and you can blow it up and head out on any lake you want.

    Hope you sell lots of sox!!
    Is that sox in a box??
