Sunny Thursday....

Good morning you all. It started out rather misty here, although not as cold as the days before. I have been watching the sun rise though the mist, and the frost outside is nearly gone. And it's already 3°!! Yesterday afternoon the temps went up to 15°, so was able to enjoy my walk, and it was positively hot in my car....The sun was shining down on it, and I still had the heating full on. Time to switch the air conditioning on instead!
I made several trips to the thrift shop, too, but this time I was taking things there. I am clearing out, and bit by bit I am getting some space in my cupboards, which all seem to be full of things I never use, but where I always think I might, possibly, need them some day....Anyway, I hope they will find new homes with folks that do need them!

I managed some crafting, too. I'm just sharing a little Easter card today, the rest is for Jason's travels and PPF tomorrow! The background has been inked through some starry sequin waste. I added some glittery flower rub-ons, and two little Beatrix Potter images. Was fun to make and a good way to use up some of those scraps!

And another little joke from Narda:

A little girl asked her mother,
"How did the human race start?"
The mother answered,
"God made Adam and Eve and they had children,
and so all mankind was made."

Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. The father answered,
"Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved."

The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."

Have a nice day you all! Take care, and thanks for visiting!
