ings or eds

Some things in life are best enjoyed in the past tense, others as an ongoing event. For example, many people only enjoy a yard that has been "gardened" and deplore the act of "gardening."

Below are my "ed" and "ing" lists:

paint - ed, launder - ed, shop - ed, laugh -ed

garden - ing, eat - ing, sew - ing, run - ing, laugh - ing

No Words

This little guy and his sweet, adoring mommy leave me speechless....

Cereal Dust

Just how empty the cereal container becomes is directly related to the amount of CEREAL DUST that accumulates in the bottom. Yuck. I use a strainer to sift out the dust so I can get the last bit of my favorite cereal.

No longer. Our family added a member who loves this stuff and I let it now settle to the bottom for when he visits.

In my family, doughnuts are eaten with scissors. Few things compare with the disappointment of committing to a specific doughnut among a mouth-watering assorted dozen.

When the newly purchased dozen is set upon the counter, scissors are set in the box and diners may snip out a segment from any in the box, thus negating the possibity of error. Typically, one lone eighth of chocolate with chocolate sprinkles is left to cement itself to the bottom of the box for the duration of its trip to the cardboard paper recycling center.
