TToT: A Basket Full of Thanks

Hey, Jelly Beans.  Are you ready for your close-up?

So much to be thankful for this week-- 
-a break from work
-a yard full of blooms
-silly competition between father and daughter over their basketball brackets
-chocolate bunnies
-a pair of brand new, crystal clear bifocals
-Got my hair cut.  Really, really thankful that my hair grows freakishly fast!
-Had almost fifty skin-tags removed this week.  Thankful that they are merely a benign nuisance.
-Rueben sandwiches with corned beef that is not overly tough--ah! The luck of the Irish to you!
-My hair is probably growing right now.  Whew!  That makes me thankful.  Four inches by --Monday?  Now that would make me dancing-in-the-street-thankful.


  1. At first, I thought the jelly beans were balloons. Love the close-up! (I can practically taste them!)
    I need to get a haircut soon.
    I'd be surprised if anyone's basketball brackets actually match what is happening this year!

    1. I saw a photo online of someone holding a match to his bracket!
      The jelly beans were in a bowl on the counter, and I kept being struck by their vivid color. Couldn't resist taking an extreme close up.

  2. The last time I got my hair cut, I told her to take a little more off my bangs, and boy, THAT was a mistake! I looked like I did when my mom cut them in second grade. You know the look. I'm pretty sure I can almost HEAR your hair growing already.
    Yay for spring breaks and flowers and chocolate bunnies and being able to see and March Madness.

  3. Books and chocolate bunnies.
    Love both.

  4. How short is your hair to need four inches by Monday? What happened?

    Hooray for books, and I hope you have lots of sunshine this week :)

    1. Lets just say an electric razor came out at one point. Equipment not required for a should skimming bob----which is what I requested.


Penny for your thoughts.
