Random Thursday on the first day of Spring

Okay, now that is a pie.  Husband made this lemon meringue pie to celebrate Daughter's special someone's birthday.  Seriously yum.  Thank you, chickens.  Thank you, Husband.

Yesterday, my good friend Sue and I went on a little spring break jaunt down to Bellingham, Washington.  We stopped at a few thrifty places, a few fabric places and Home Depot.  Squeal!  I found the Stanley 3 in 1 toolbox to haul my featherweight and all my sewing junk to sew ins.  I copied Monica at Happy Zombie on this one.  Thank you, Monica for such a great find!  This makes me seriously delighted.  Daisy Marie will fit in the bottom with a cutting board and then the rest of my junk will fit in the other two compartments and it all fits together on wheels!  

A few weeks ago we had a big dump of snow.  Look at this wee snowman.  So cute.  Somebody took the time to make it on top of the garbage containers at Tim Hortons.  I had to to take a picture but I had to get out of the car and stand in the drive thru lane.  Husband was afraid I was going to get hit by a car.  I didn't.  Thank you random snowman maker.

And now I will go back to enjoying spring break.  Linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday!


  1. I am sick and tired of snow, but that snowman is cute. Love Tim Hortons, one of my first stops when I am in Canada.

  2. Oooh, love lemon meringue pie!

    Speaking of Tim Horton's, I finally rolled up and WON a coffee yesterday, the last in my family and I was beginning to feel left out!

  3. I saw Monica's travel case from Lowe's--seriously brilliant. I might think about getting one myself. Cute snowman. :)

  4. I wish I had seen this post before I bought the traditional sewing machine suitcase. It is working fine for now, but it isn't very sturdy. When it breaks I will get a Stanley 3 in 1.

  5. First of all, I am about to go to bed and now all I can think about is lemon meringue pie! OMG, does that look good! I think I can smell it from here! Ahhhhhhhhhhh......
    Secondly, I buy all my sewing container stuff at lumber yard warehouses, so very cheap! I have one of those things with small bins for nails or screws and I keep my embroidery floss in them, a red tool box for my scissors, etc.
    Ok, from Nebraska here, what is a Tim Horton store all about?

  6. Well done hubby! I miss my 'girls' more than ever after seeing that pie. Sigh
    Cute wee snowman

  7. Daisy Marie, what a great name! And yes that is a serious pie!
    That's it I have to go to my mother in law and ask her about her machine she has in her closet, I keep forgetting, thanks for reminding me!
