(teapot by Gary Rith)
A Cardinal walks into a pharmacy and buys a chapstick. The clerk asks: "will that be cash or charge?" and the Cardinal replies: "just put it on my bill". HAR!
So as I said last week, and it is still true, Cardinals have been following me around this winter and esp. this spring. I am working and look out the window: cardinals. Washing the dishes and glance outside? Cardinals. Walking the dog along the river, cardinals, over at the playground: CARDINALS! If you know what a northern winter and spring is like, grey and brown, you LOVE that flash of red! Esp. when he has his orangey missus with him, and some of his friends too.
The bird on this teapot is, shall we say, inspired by cardinals.
I got a new pillow at Target yesterday and let's just say I am in love. Its this big fluffy thing, curvy and soft in all the right places, yet firm where it should be. I held it close alll night long. Then dreamt I went to the beach. :)
