Good morning everyone Good morning, Karla
Yay We finally closed !!! A few last minute nail bitters that had us all holding our breath. But finally after tons of phone calls( some not so nice) & faxes we started signing papers at 4 pm
Woo hoo I am so glad that 5 month "adventure" is done.
Today is my last day at school we finish a couple weeks before the kids.
Today we will be taking them out to the garden they planed and "harvest" the lettuce and other things and they will be able to enjoy the results of all of their efforts. I have a feeling the kids(inner city urban) have never experienced the joy of growing food they can eat. We started a similar project in the city I live in and now the adults are involved too. This is a wonderful way of helping people help themselves. Kudos to you, Karla. Planting seeds of hope and health.
I loved getting to know all of the kids this year and am going to miss them. I am sure it will be so hard
But before I can go see them I have to ask:
It's National Towel Day !!!
So lets talk about towels
For bath towels do you prefer:
Regular size ?
The huge Bath sheet size ?
What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom) ?Whatever....
Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?
How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ?
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?
Extra Credit Question:
lol I think I was just adopted by
1. A couple of cats I am catsitting
2. A young lady I went to school with
In Honor of Tap Dance Day
What was the last situation,topic or discussion where you experienced someone "Tap Dancing" around the answer or issue ? Cujo, when I asked him for a raise... I make up the paycheques, so perhaps I should just tell Cujo I am adjusting my cheque accordingly It's the old, "Yes, I have to give you a raise, yes you deserve so much more, can we talk about that tomorrow?" Okay, Cujo time is up....
Just for Fun:
How many of our QOTD family have ever danced the "Twist" ?
Have you ever been in a "Twist Contest" ? Nyet

The weather on this continent is definitely changing and I've not heard anyone say that it is for the better. Keep safe folks, take care and of course I will check in later...
