Just outside my door...

Scroll down for part three of You had me at "you kind of annoy me" :O)

***Edit to add: I'm sorry to bloggers I missed in my story, you have been added. I didn't see ya sneak in there at the end... scroll down to see the rest of our Front Door Story.***

There is a grunt load of snow! I have to say, my front yard doesn't usually look that pretty. So, that's the exciting view from this old brick house. If you would like to see the view from other bloggers, head on over to Vicki's.

Her Grand Idea was to have people post pictures of what they see out of their front door everyday. Pretty cool idea, I am really enjoying seeing what other bloggers see in their neck of the woods.



I was noticing at At Vicki's site that she had all of the participants listed. I started to read the names of the blogs and decided to make up a silly story, following the list in exact order that she had it. Enjoy!


I'm sure that all the other participants are Dreaming of What If's of Strawberries and Champagne, just as I am! I'm heading over right now, and I'm sure there will be some Small Town Rambling(s) on My Way. I'll be wondering who Loves Rain as my senses are Waking Up in the chilly air. Though I know nothing about Anecdotes, Antidotes, and Anodes, I do know a little about being an Ice Cream Mama.

I didn't say it was your fault, but because I'm rambling on and on, I have gotten lost. I'm sending an S.O.S. , and I'm hoping The Dust Will Wait. It just wouldn't be A Family Story without Dirty Uncle Mark and some Mama Drama, and though this might not make any sense- I'm Almost Somewhat Positive that A Dingo's Got My Barbie.

Hah, now I know where I'm going, I just passed Another Chance Ranch. Now that I am almost there, I am wondering if being a Mom To 3 Cubs can drive a woman to her Pensieve. I don't want to know. :O) If you are like me, that seems a little too Voodooesque.

OK, yes... almost there. I'm turning right on Tiggerlane. I really want to go The Electronic Firefly, where I hear that they have a very nice man posting signs above toilets. ;O)
Crazy Is As Crazy Does, Don't Try This At Home.

*** Added late, sorry guys!***
As I neared Vicki's place, I wondered if I shouldn't have brought something... but then I thought,"Enter a Room con queso?No. This is Cyprus, that's not how they roll." I then realized I had been talking an awful lot to my self on this walk... but there was time for one more question!

"Are We There Yet?"

I cracked myself up. I was cold, and remembered that I just happened to have some Peppermint Tea in my purse. How lucky! I wouldn't be walking empty handed after all, I thought to myself, as I hummed Living La vida Claudia.

As I rounded the corner to Vicki's place,
Mrs. CPA greeted me at the door, and forewarned me that the topic of conversation was about going From Fattie to Hottie in 6 months. Poor Kurt, he didn't know what to make of it all and looked a little embarrassed. I rescued him by asking him to help me make tea, and giggles followed us as we moved to the kitchen. Everyone enjoyed their visit at Vicki's, as we all sipped tea and exchanged pictures of the view from our own front doors.

I forgot to mention yesterday in my Miscellaneous Soup that on Saturday night I put Anna to bed. She rolled away from me, paused, then said over her shoulder, " Hey mom, I think that the next time you go shopping you should pick up a bag of mints."

Not some mints, not a mint. A bag of mints. It sucks to be me sometimes. ;O)

ha ha ha ha bag of mints. Well, I've been told if someone offers you a mint you should take it.

You outdid yourself with your little story.

I like your front door. Our little bit of snow melted. Warmed up into the 40's well, you can see a tad bit in the flower bed.

dodo said...

that is REALLY pretty - and thanks for including me in you story

min said...

You're really good at spreading the linky love around! I wonder if you could write a country-western song doing that!?!

Beccy said...

Great post, and more snow, I think I need to move!

Anonymous said...

Ha! I love your linky story! Fabulous!

Oh and a bag of mints? Ouch. I feel your pain. Hailey told me I was all BOUNCY the other day. Did I mention I was getting in the shower at the time. Nice.

Jenny said...

PS. Anonymous is me. I'm an idiot.

A bouncy idiot.

tiggerprr said...

Very pretty. I almost miss the midwestern snow. Almost.

LOL your little linky story is so creative!

I wonder where Anna gets that? Hmmmm..who could it be...mom? LOL It is sort of cute now, wait 'til she's a teenager. Ashlyn understood and "got" sarcasm by the time she was 2 and a half. My friends all thought it was the funniest thing and knew it was all me. She wields it well in our war with teenage angst. ::cringe::

Melissa said...

I love your picture! And the story is fantastic! I never come up with stuff like that. Very creative!

Robin said...

I'll be posting my pictures soon, right now I'm waiting for someone to stop by who is now running LATE ('nother big sigh...).

I love the story. I am also glad there is another person who knows about being an Ice Cream Mama!

Devon said...

What a winter wonderland picture!

Great job with the poem! very well done!

Once I was sitting with my son and daughter. My son passed gas and my daughter turned to me and said, "mom, you have bad breath"! Yikes!!!

Karmyn R said...

Your neighborhood looks cute.

I've always wanted to live in a state with actual seasons...down here near the Gulf we get warm, hot, hotter, and briefly cool. Love the snow picture!

Margaret said...

Mom always said if someone offers you gum or a mint... always take it.

Rose said...

This was a great idea. I'll post my pic later today.

Let's try this again. I was here hours ago but blogger was being a shit. First the picture is great, second the story is even greater.

Great story, and great idea! Bravo.

Coincidentally, I DO like tea--never drink coffee.
