Shake your tail feathers

Goodbye Irene. She was a nasty one. I hope and pray that things get back to normal on the East Coast.
Trying to bring some joy back in my posts. These pictures are taken in Doodles' home. Her parents bought their house after it was on Tour of Homes......7 years ago. I just love these chicken(or is a rooster). The back side is clear across the kitchen. (oops, I thought I posted the back side but I didn't) I still don't know whether this is a stencil or it is hand painted. There are other decorative paintings in their house. I took pictures of the kids rooms and that will follow in another post. There home is like living in the Pottery Barn catalog. I always say that's where I want to the PB catalog......or the store.

This picture came from Doddle's great grandmother. It is very old but looks brand new. I think it is tin that it is painted on. I really like this, don't you?

Okay, now this has nothing at all to do with the above photos. Today I had a 911 call from Goose's Mom my DIL. Goose had an accident at her day care.....where she goes before kindergarten. She didn't make it to the potty. So Grammy to the rescue. I ran by their house and got some undies and a cute little dress for her to wear to kindergarten and back to the day care. This happened almost a year ago to the date. I think her Daddy (my son) sometimes forgets to remind her to go to potty before they go out the door. I don't know how these kids hold their bladders all night and into the morning. Geez Louise, I am up several times a night. The minute my eyes open......I am in the bathroom. I think, then, when she has to go there is too much to hold back. Sorry, too much information. Anyway, problem solved. We can't have her going to her real first day to K. like that. She had a trial day last week.
Not my Goose.

Okay, ooops, almost forgot about this picture. I went to get some tea on my way home.......both drive thru lines were 20 cars deep. I had to turn around and leave. But, I thought I'd show you you see the sign. I don't think we are a fat nation, just a poor one. Look what brings out people ....a $1 Big Mac. So I went to Wendy's for my tea and guess one was there and it was lunch time.

This is it for today, headed on a job interview. Yep, I am.

Great post. I have made one or two of those emergency calls to school too! lol It is always the men that forget to remind the kids to go potty!

Love the house and am looking forward to seeing the other paintings.

Good luck on the interview. Hope it goes great! xo Diana

Accidents happen. I've been called to school a few times when my kids were little for accidents.

Hope the interview went well!

just call me jo said...

Blakers had a wild morning. He got kind of "nervous" about school before the bus came. Who knows how the day went. I love the rooster. You know we call our other grandson Rooster because he's named Rick like my husband. It avoids confusion. (sort of)

Oh poor lil Goose... Glad she has a nice grammy to help her out when she needs assistance. You crack me up on the TMI potty breaks! So, are you gonna meet up with me for the CL show in 3 weeks? I'm gonna do S'field on Friday, I think. The husband has to work that day, so I'll be on my own. Give me a buzz, toots. ~ Sue

Woo Hoo for an interview. I could be happy in a Pottery Barn home too.....

Hi Debby! I hope your new job is going well. I have had you on my mind lately. TSG leaves for Hawaii next Wednesday and marries Saturday. I will be posting about our going away dinner tomorrow.
Oh my gosh would I ever love to live in a PB house as well! We can dream, can't we?
Have a great week! Elizabeth

Love the rooster, hand painted or stenciled he is amazing! Love the picture of all your grand-babies what a beautiful bunch. Sorry to hear about the job losses, too many hard working people are finding themselves without work. I hope you all find something soon. Thanks so much for stopping by Cottage and Broome (from the Mom)

I love the painted chicken...what a creative idea! I want to live in a Pottery Barn catalog, too! lol!! I am hinting to hubby that I want their new kitchen island!

I know what you mean about getting up 6 times a night when duty calls. I haven't had a full nights sleep since I was thirty! Poor little darling. I hope she is enjoying kindergarten.

Best wishes on your job interview!!
