Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Swallowing Snot

    My son and I have had this drainage, coughy gunk that apparently is going around right now, where you don’t really feel sick but you sure sound like you could cough up a lung. . . or three. So my son was having a coughing fit one morning that sounded really wet, and I asked him if he managed to get up anything. He said, “Yeah, like snot?” Yup that’s it. I promptly told him that he didn’t need to swallow said snot but spit it out instead. And he responded, “No thanks. I like the way it tastes.”  Ewww. . . out of the mouths of babes (or down their throats).
