A LITTLE BIT OF THIS.......
......and that



I made me a Wordle today.... I feel so damn accomplished, you know, almost smart. So, because I love you with all my heart, I thought I'd give you the link so you can make one. Please don't think this is a meme or mimi, or mama....it's not. I'm just a kind, loving, sharing, type of person like some of the famous bloggers. Here's the Wordle link again because if you make one, let me know so I can come see it.

Please don't confuse this offer with the infamous Arte Y Pico This is so not that! Besides I'm sure you all have a Arte Y Pico award by now....No? Please, I find that hard to believe. But if in fact you don't, I will bestow one on you. I know it's against the rules, but if you don't tell anyone, no one will know the difference. SHHHH!

Now for the "one of the thats" of This and that..... I sent a huge care package to my granddaughter, Little One, for her second birthday. She will be two,
oh yeah, I said that already, at the end of the month, but I like to send packages early because I know it will drive my daughter nuts....I mean I can't depend on the mail system to be swift and dependable because, hello...you've all seen my local post office .

Anyway, I send one much wanted gift, then a few things I know her mom would never buy her, a few odds and ends that I find at The Dollar Tree Nordstroms, and then a little something for Pooper and Beauty.

They received the package, and a few things weren't wrapped..like a Dora umbrella and a three-piece outfit. Little One can't open her gifts yet, but she walks around with the umbrella in the closed position........because no one will tell her what it really is! She thinks it's a friggin stick with a Dora head on the end. Anyway, here's a hint at a couple of the odds and ends.......



Now for the final "that"....


my sweet almost wannabe grandson JJ is a curious little guy. He hops from the couch to the air hocky table to sniff things out.....

Or maybe he's just a sneaky thief. We find these hidden all over the house! You're busted dude!

What a funny guy that JJ is. He sure moves fast, or your camera does.

I like your wordle, but I don't have a blog so I made one and printed it out to frame in my office!

OMGOMGOMG

For a split second, I thought you had sent us a dog, because you were showing pictures of Little One's gifts, and then there was JJ.

THANK GOODNESS there is not a dog in that box, and if there WAS, he is no longer breathing.

And, you guessed it, she thinks it is a stick with Dora on the top, and she loves it that way, so, what's the problem?

The box of wrapped gifts sitting by the fireplace for 2 weeks doesnt bother me at all, but Pooper gets twitchy whenever he walks by it, and keeps asking if he can just "HOLD" the wrapped item with his name on it. Can you guess my answer to THAT question?????

I might try a wordle later...except, yours gave me a migraine, twisting my head around trying to put sentences together...and they never made sense.

HSH, to make the wordle, you just put your blog http in the space and it makes it for you. It picks up words form your "tags". You can pick color scheme, direction (horizontal, vertical, mixed, half and half) and you pick the font. But yours will just have three words because you don't use tags. I was thinking of adding Angelina Jolie just to see if I get a ton of hits from Google! Wouldn't that be fun?
You would love JJ, so would the kids. I don't know why you leave their gifts right out in the open. I say let them open them. Little One will have plenty to open on her birthday. At least let her open the dang umbrella.

Ah, the Arte y Pico de Gallo Award. You bestowed one on me, very graciously, and I still have not completed that assignment! I have it all up in the vast wasteland of my mind, but have yet to put it to paper. I'll get to it one of these days when I have a minute to breathe. So far, that minute is nowhere in sight.

thevinylvillage said...

I made a wordle too. But how on earth did you get it to save as a picture? All I can do is get the "Code" for it.

Can't wait to try the wordle!!

Thanks for stopping by my site. I hope you'll be back to visit soon :)

I tried this wordle thing awhile back and couldn't figure out how to tranfer it. Go figure. Believe it or not I am not that savy.

I'll try again without using the language that send everyone, including the dog running.

Such a cute dog! I bet he just wants to play ball!

I needed more then one pick for your survey. My dog chews and barks and pretends that she can't hear me and she wants to chase cars. She is only one year old and I can't wait until she grows up.

Great job on capturing the doggie pic's! I could never do that with the camera I have...you have to hold still for 60 sec before the thing actually takes! Love the wordle link...got to think first what to put in there...may have to do more than one!

Grandma J said...

As far as the wordle....you can enter words in the big cell, or just put your blog URL where stated, and it automatically picks up words from your blog.

thevinylvillage, I had a difficult time using the code too so I did a "save screen" then pasted it in a blank JPEG. I'm not very computer savy so I improvised lol.

You are very creative. Maybe you should have been a teacher instead of a government worker : ). How creative did you get to be at work? I love that you sent a package. They are so fun. You always make my day!

This is so funny. I wish I would never had let my girls know that umbrellas open up. They destroyed them all....I think the sequined picture is head bands.
That dog is a hairy little theif.
You are so funny. I will have to keep checking on you..
