Bucket List: Visit Briggs and Little - DONE!!!

Hi There!

When we lived in Neguac and my Grandparents were still living, we had sheep. My Grandparents would send their (raw) sheeps' wool to Briggs and Little and, in the fall, my Grandmother would receive a HUGE package with skeins and skeins of yarn. It was a happy moment for her.

Today, my Mom and I visited Briggs and Little and Heather greeted us, in the shop and was sooooo nice! My Mom and I had a few nostalgic moments.  Five Stars to Briggs and Little with their "Service with a Smile" attitude and their Heather!!!

Several times, on the drive back to Saint John, I told my Mom, "Gee that Heather was nice! What a great experience!"

Anyhow, here's a picture of my Mom. She had problems with her eyes.... they'd "fill up", every now and then... as well as mine.

And, here's what I bought!

I really should explain myself.  The last time that I knitted something was probably 10 years ago and it was just "scarves".  I made a couple pairs of mittens and socks and one sweater, when I was .... hmmmm... 21(?).  That was many, many years ago.

Anyhow, I've decided to re-try my hand at this.

Will keep you all posted!

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal - Evening Snack

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal:

Zelda here. My fur Mommy said that everyone on VisageAlbum - ooops... FaceBook - have to tell all THEIR friends about what they eat.

Well, I've asked my fur Mommy to post this picture of "moi", eating our favorite evening treat. Plain, roasted almonds! Yup! That's it. Plain, roasted almonds.

Fur Mommy gives me one and she takes one and then, I get one and she gets one. And on and on it goes till the 10 or so almonds disappear.

We be buddettes... Mommy and Me!

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal: I'm a Sensitive Guy!

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal:

Bandit here. I'm a sensitive guy. I "feel" more than Zelda. Much more.

Yesterday morning, my fur Mommy came downstairs and I had been sick in my sleep space (AKA under the kitchen table). She cleaned it up, as is her job, of course. Tee Hee.

My fur Daddy came into the kitchen and he started to gag. He told my fur Mommy that I smelled like garbage or like something rotten! Well, they couldn't put me out since it was raining and windy outside. They couldn't give me a bath in THEIR bathtub. HELLO!!! HAVE YOU SEEN THE SIZE OF ME??? And, spraying me with some kind of perfume would not be good for my health.

Did I mention this is the first time that I had such an "aroma" about me?

My fur Mommy figured it out. We had a Category 1 Hurricane come into our city and she figures that my chakras weren't quite lined up, in my body.

Sooooo, if that's the case, let's hope that our FIRST Summer Storm will be our LAST Summer Storm, for this season, anyhow!

My chakras can't take another storm.

 Besides.... They may be asking me to move in their Baby Barn, next time.

Nails By Rosa

Hi There!

I've recently gotten into Gellish nail polishes or "Soak Off" polishes.  I have the Gellish lamp and lots of polishes and stuff.

This afternoon, I picked up a few more colors. I decided to take a chance and see how the Gelaze brand works v.s. the Gellish brand. Both are "soak off" polishes. Gelaze is not as expensive AND the "foundation" coat is built in. BONUS!!!

From left to right, let me introduce to you my new colors:

Gelaze - White on White. The sales girl told me this is EXCELLENT for French Manicures. You don't need to do a 2nd coat, like the Gellish brand.

Gelaze - Re-Fresh Mint. The color is the EXACT same color as the outside of the bottle. I like that.

Gelaze - Exceptionally Gifted. My collection was lacking some nice summer colors. This one fits the bill, I believe.

Gelaze - Fairy Dust. This is a transparent, teeny, tiny, transparent and sparkly polish. To be used alone... if you don't want too much color or to be brushed onto other colors for a little "Fairy Dust" pick me uppper!

Gelaze - Shocking Pink. Once again, it looks... well... in your face.... the same color as the bottle but it can be used as an accent paint, or to make some fancy flowers.... whatever.

Kosmic Colors is just regular polish. It was on sale for $1.50 and I just LOVED the sparkly bronze colors. I can easily see on toes.

And finally, I bought a Gellish bottle, called "Izzy Wizzy, Let's Get Busy". It gives a transparent Mother of Pearl kind of look. I could easily use this as a base coat of paint for a French Manicure. I think it would look nice. 

Soooo, this is another of my artistic venues.  Right now, I'm looking for guinea pigs, to practice on.  My goal is to get good enough, someday, and work from my kitchen.

Have a Terrific Thursday!

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal - Getting Royal Belly Rubs

Zelda 'n Bandit's Daily Journal:

Zelda here. Our fur Mommy left for groceries this morning, came back, put groceries away and proceeded to fill up a bag and ... well... Bandit and I figured out that she was on a mission and we were not invited.

She went on an afternoon picnic, outside, by the beach, with her friends and came back 4 hours later! It felt like FURRR-EVER!!!

We got our revenge by giving her the Sniff Test, many times over!

Afterwards, I went to see my fur Daddy, laid on my back and asked for my Royal Belly Rub. Daddy took a picture 'cause he thought I was cute.

Daddy's my new friend! At least, until its time to play or eat and at which point, I will have forgotten that Mommy abandoned us.

Tomorrow's another day....
