Stickin' to Stickers

When I go visit my sissy in Omaha we usually make a 'retail therapy' trip to the Dollar Tree. I scored big last time with some really fun dimensional stickers. I have too many stickers in my arsenal of card making items - but when you can say  "it's only a dollar..." whatcha' gonna do? We also, usually, make a trip to Archiver's which is not technically 'therapy' rather more of a 'necessity'.

Speaking of shopping - I asked dear husband to stop at the grocery store for a few items today. I was considerate and texted him the list as his 'shopping list memory' is maxed out at three items. Before texting the list I spoke with him on the phone telling him the list and telling him the call would be followed by a text. When I mentioned purchasing yogurt he proudly recalled without prompting, "berry flavors - no strawberry". I praised his recollection (regardless of the fact that he has been instructed that the only yogurt flavors I like are berry flavored except strawberry - for as long as dairy producers have been making the creamy culture-laden treat). As we were putting away the groceries he satisfyingly was naming the yogurts as he piled them in the refrigerator..."raspberry, blueberry, mixed berry, cherry, and peach." Extended dramatic pause.....His response to the profound silence was, "at least they're all in the fruit family." Next week we will work on colors and then move up to veggie identification.  :)

My friend Lisa just stopped over with a fresh baked rhubarb pie. By the way...rhubarb: NOT a berry....not even a fruit!
