The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week.

1. When I went to use the Roberson's Gold size to do some gilding, the goop smelled like vinegar. I wasn't sure if it had gone bad. I did a test patch and the gold stuck to the glue so I guess it's still ok to use

2. Pulled weeds as big as trees around the  min-split condenser.

3. Enjoyed Carol DuBosch's online class in Bone Script

4. My birthday ended the month long birthday celebrations with an early, morning greeting on Facebook from the Young One, take out lobster rolls from The 99, a rain gauge for the weather station, a private blend of tea from the Eldest, and Key Lime Pie

 5. The recipients of the T Day Give Away are: Elizabeth, Cyndi, and Jo. Congratulations! And thank you all for playing. 

Jo, will you please email me your snail address?

How was your week?

    1. You can't blow out candles on a cake anymore because of Covid so this is the new way to blow out the flames

  6. I chuckled at your description of the weeds. I'm glad the birthday celebrations went well. That cat video is interesting, but I'm surprised the cat didn't burn his paw.

    1. Ok, maybe not trees, but they were taller than me. If you look at the kitty in the video, he whacks the candle not the flame. The flame goes out with the force of him hitting the candle.

  10. First of all, thank you beyond belief. I am simply HONORED to be one of the lucky recipients, dear CJ. I about fell off my chair because at first I thought you meant you had received ATCs from the three of us, but I didn't know any Cyndi, so I reread it and was simply overwhelmed. Thank you again.

    Three birthdays this month make for a wonderful month of fun and enjoyment. So glad you got some special tea and a new rain gauge.

    I swear, if that cat had a pink nose, it would be a faux Squiggles. Loved it. What a clever way for the youngest to honor your birthday. And don't even share that key lime pie. It sounds too good to share (can you tell I have a thing for key lime?).

    I wish I knew more about gilding, but apparently the scent doesn't detract from the product working. That is good news, because it sound like it's expensive.

    1. Cyndi is a Facebook friend. I cross post the blogs to FB. Initially, gilding is expensive. You have buy the goop, some tools, and of course the gold. But the goop will last for some time and a lot of times you don't use a lot of gold. Just enough to give a piece some wow factor

  11. Speaking of weeds as big as trees, how about coming over and helping me:) Hehe.

  12. Ah, weeds, a lesson in persistence. They never give up lol

    Y'all had an exciting month! It's good that we have ways of keeping in touch regularly that don't require in-person visits. I think of olden days when people lived in more remote locations socially distanced by necessity, and I think we are such a whiney culture lol

    1. I'm glad for the computer, social media to keep in touch. I'd be happy to write letters like they did in days of old, but I don't think I'd ever get a reply. And lately, people whine about the silliest things

    2. I'll whine about the whiners ;)

      I used to write actual letters. Fewer and fewer people wrote back until finally it was just me and Mother and then I moved back to Memphis *sigh*
