I've purchased a package of 10 plastic hangers every Saturday for the last six weeks. That's 60 hangers. Today I yelled from the utility room, "I need hangers. Lots of hangers." Silence. Then a few sputtering, "I don't have any." "No extras in my closet." I wonder where they go. I added 60 hangers to the (undoubtedly) hundreds already in the house.
I cooked six lbs. of hamburger after lunch today (which was - surprisingly - burgers) to freeze in two-lb bags. Most of our favorite recipes begin, "Brown two lbs. of lean ground beef" - and in the evening, there's time only to assemble, so I cook the meat ahead. And what do I find but an empty snack box.I wonder who puts an empty snack box in the freezer? I'm suspecting it's the same person who puts empty Pringles cans back in the pantry. And leaves 1/2 of one pretzel in the jar on the counter.
Rachel and Lois have gotten me hooked on Fail Blog
, which I now peruse about once a week. Every day for two weeks, I've stared at this page from a child's workbook, wondering what a whale, piano, penguin, train and boot have in common. At first I thought "five letter words" - whale, piano, train, oops, "penguin" and "boot" blow it. Then I thought maybe it was some first vowel pattern, like tra
ot....oops, "whale" blows it. Then I thought color pattern - black and white piano keys, black and white penguin, black and white whale...oops, the train and boot blow it. Then I thought "track," like maybe it's a player piano with music on a track, the boot and the penguin leave tracks, the train runs on a track..but what about the whale? I even googled the words, and found others have posted their frustrations with deciphering the pattern.So what's the pattern for the bottom right box? I am not getting it. And it's bugging the heck out of me. And I wonder why it bugs me so much, too.
Wishing you a wonder-ful week....and please let me know if you figure out the pattern. Then I can go back to fretting about hangers and snack boxes.
