Convocation..Soaps..Hicky Fangs..Birdhouses..Rain

Today and tomorrow we're holding convocations at the college I work at. There was one each in the morning and afternoon and the same tomorrow. I worked the one in the morning seating and assisting in the gym all the proud mothers and fathers, relatives, friends of the graduates who are ready to move on to a new life. One young student arrived on her own with her 7 month old girl hoping someone would help care for the child while she graduated. Fortuntely the little one was a gorgeous, little angel so content it didn't take much amusing from any of us to keep her happy during the ceremony. Everyone worked hard to make everything perfect today from the indoors to the beautiful gardens outdoors. Lovely day....even the rain held off for a change...but alas its evening and its raining once more. Our grass is way too green by now I think!

I've been reading and looking at your precious pics of birds sitting in their little nests built in the strangest places so close to view. Tonight I noticed my own little bird nest...see the little birdie? And its indoors and in my plant in the diningroom. I was actually admiring how happy the plant is. It has 2 "flowers" coming up. See the 2 white stems coming up on either side then it sort of uncurls. Do you know what plant this is? Its so healthy and I rescued it from sure death at work some years ago.

Tonight I wrapped the soaps I made a couple of nights ago. I labeled them and some will go into my etsy shop, a couple will be going into the blogging mail and I have family who feel slighted I ran out at Christmas time. They do smell delish and I love their lather. Thats a good start next week I'll be filling orders for bath bombs and lip balms. I'll slip some into the shop also.

I look like I have 2 fangs down from my bottom lip and no I was not going to take a picture but just imagine it. We had little ice cream sundaes at work and we had little round plastic spoons to eat with. I totally forgot what would very well happen as I turned the spoon upside down and scraped the ice cream off with my bottom lip, every spoonful. I ate 2 of those little sundaes that way and when I got home and checked the mirror I had dracula type "bruisy red fangs". How embarassing. If you have the opportunity, try it and see if it happens to YOU! When I worked part-time a few years ago at a retail store I bought a sundae before work. When I use a ROUND plastic spoon thats the way I like to eat was a large sundae and once I got to work and looked in the mirror...oh my I had to spend the whole evening working as if I had these gruesome hickies running down from my lips. *lol*. Whew.
On that note...have a really lovely day and watch how YOU eat your sundaes... Judi xoxo

Hi Judiness! Oh what a funny story! I hope your fangs go away soon! You should have taken a picture!
Sounds like you've been so busy with all the grads!
Love your little bird and it's so teeny tiny! How cute.
Hope you have a nice evening and no one mistakes you for a vampire! ;0
Be a sweetie,

that plant is called an algonema...chineese evergreen!!! I used to have passed...and they are hard to find in these parts! Lucky you...they like anything but full sun or deep shade!
I am envious!

Yikes! Glad you didn't have the fangs at graduation. That was so sweet about the 7 mo. old. Glad that worked out. Your bird and house are adorable. Have a great day.

I was trying to figure out what the heck when I saw your title. Too funny. I will be careful when I eat sundaes which is not very often these days. You have been busy it seems. A good busy though, right?

Judi, thanks for the warning about the fangs! I love ice cream, and I'll be sure and not do that. LOL!

I love graduations because they are such happy occasions for the graduates and their families. Such accomplishment!

Have missed you since I've been MIA.
