One day earlier this spring, the girls and I were out for a walk and we ended up at HomeSense. I love browsing that store just to see what new stuff is in. I spotted a ceramic frog that would be perfect for the back yard. It was ORANGE, but since it was bulky and heavy and I was on foot with the dogs - I left the frog. I meant to go back, but I forgot. When I did remember - the frog was gone and there was only a green one left. I didn't want the green one so I didn't get the frog, but I put a note on my blog about the frog hoping that one day someone would see the frog and let me know.
Now let me backtrack a bit more. Mary recently won a new SMART PHONE. It was a contest on the radio and you had to write in why you wanted a new phone. Let's just say that Mary deserved the phone and it is a beauty!!!!!
|It is an HTC (OK - so not my favourite brand), but it is a top of the line with all the bells and whistles and even interchangeable colour things for the ends. Nice prize Mary!!!!!|
It is an Android phone and Mary is pretty adept at that platform having a Kobo reader - or whatever this is - she has told me several times and I can't remember!!!!!!!!!!! anyway - she had no trouble going from a DUMB phone to a SMART phone.
OK - all that to tell you that I got a call from Mary two weeks ago. "Quick - check your e-mail." (She didn't have my cell phone number so she could send me a text although she has since learned how to send picutres as attachments to a text! She is a fast learner and her kids don't even live at home any more to help!!!!
She had been out browsing and look what she found..............
|Is this the frog???? Nope|
|Is this the frog???? YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Aw - the wonders of technology!!!!
I decided to check out my local HomeSense to see if more frogs had come in...........
Well yes - more did come in.
|the yellow ones|
|The green one|
|And red ones - BUT not a single orange one!!!!!!!!!!! So happy that Mary spotted the orange one|
Now the frog is sitting near the pond. He tested out a couple of spots before he found one that he preferred.
|This is beautiful - I can see myself in the water - I love this.|
|Oh - this is even better - I have just a smidgen more protection so no one can accidentally knock me in the pond|
Now I have been doing other hunting and seeking and you will hear some of those stories. But I have a class to teach this morning so must get everything organized. And someone (OK - some idiot) is lighting up fireworks at 3 AM this morning and I couldn't get back to sleep!! I think a nap will be in order later today.
I trimmed my Mom's quilt this morning. I was dreading it because the edges were a bit wonky and no real guide to trim it. Well I did have to cut some of the edges away, but it trimmed back almost perfect!!!! Hard to believe. I will get the binding on later today.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
