Desk Chit Chat: Farewell to May

The thirty-one days of the 5th month went by as if May is a sprint instead of a marathon. One word methinks describes the landscape is Blooming: trees, flowers, allergies, bird song, and rain. Filling in is the chorus of lawn mowers and the infrequent dog barking. All mean neighborhood, life, and living. Spring this year has been very Spring, beautiful and refreshing.
Farewell May, its been sneezing fun.

Along the Internet travels...

Adorable and interesting dog training in progress video at the blog Romping and Rolling in the Rockies

Watercress, the health benefits places it on my container garden this year.

Finding places online to sell you art is a research task that's near being in an ice cream store. Check out April M. Rimpo Art on spreesy.com. Nice online gallery easy to navigate.

Loving the possibilities in this Simplicity Burda Style Asymmetrical Dress Pattern #B6500

As we all know, Google is more than just a search engine. Check out Google Glass

Gem of the week...Found this funny YouTube channel, UpliftPost via the blog, Linda's Peaceful Place

Do you see the ancient man in the sky with his arms out welcoming new clouds?
Telling them stories about his cloud days?
Explaining the Hydrolic/Water Cycle?
Must have been a story because they're laughing

Desk Chit Chat: Salad Dressing, Sandals and Sewing

Saturday didn't feel like Saturday. If chit chat is going to be the end of my week, then writing it out before hand isn't doable. The key is to add a Saturday alarm to my cell phone. And, take it more seriously than Friday's reminder notice to "Paint!"  Yesterday time flew again as I was busy moving furniture into the summer configuration. In the end, two chairs are left over.
Prefer dressing in a glass container

I've been transitioning from mainly ketchup to making my own with an applesauce base, and using salad dressing. I found two I really like. Both are good on sandwiches instead of mayo.
Sharing the top spots are:
Olde Cape Cod, Poppy Seed 
I like it especially for raw vegetables and in big salads.
Maple Grove Farms of Vermont, Creamy Balsamic
My go to dressing for chicken, luncheon meats, and cheese.

There is bookmark folder for links to remind me of what I found on the Internet during the week. Being off the Internet this week means the links are slim.
Sandals...This summer I must have a pair of jute sandals with seashells after seeing these cute ones, Impo Reem Sandals on eBay. (The hot glue gun might be busy this year as I make over old sandals.)

On the wardrobe project this year is to sew a blouse using a bird print. The search online has not been easy. The prints I like are either for sofas and draperies, not the right colors or priced higher than my budget. Yet, I find this Cotton & Steel, crane fabric on fabric.com isn't easy to forget.

Have a Wonderful Week!
