Thomas and Camilla February 2018 Date Day (a wee bit late). My phone got so cold that I lost all photos from our date except one!
The one of Thomas with his ice cream from Icecycle Creamery is the only photo that survived. That was our first stop.
Second stop was one of our favorite spots … Audrey Harris Park for Thomas to eat his ice cream with the amazing view. Then we walked the entire loop in the snow. We had it all to ourself, we were frozen, we had a beautiful time enjoying one another’s company, and I took lots of pictures. No matter. I’ve got one!
Then!!! For dinner. More birthday yummies for me plus a toast to the flights of Where Would You Fly.
I knew I was saving this one wine glass for something!! Wine glasses were made for vegan root beer floats!! Coconut Bliss Vanilla Ice Cream smothered with an amazing root beer. Served with a vegan burger topped with sautéed sweet onions, crimini mushrooms, hot & sweet jalapeños, kalamata olives, with a slather of vegan kale, cashew & basil pesto on two slices of Italian bread. I’m full!!
Hoppy, Hoppy, Joy, Joy from Team TLC to y’all! This natural dye is awesome! Prettiest colors I’ve ever seen! Got it on clearance since I bought it on Friday! T & L were over the moon happy about getting more lined paper! Lots of love and smiles …. ♡

We got to add a few more pins to the map! A couple of more to Australia and bunches in the United States! Why is this map so fun? Hahaha!! We’re having a ball with it! If you click on the map it will take you to an interactive map where you can zoom in and out and move around the world!
If you purchased a book from Amazon, please let me know so I can add your city, state, country to the map. YAY! The purple pins have cool photos embedded of the book having reached its destination!
Lillian cracks me up!!! This year for her multicultural project she chose hieroglyphics and for one of the genres she chose to write a letter. I explained to her last night that it needed to match the period and not mention modern stuff. Just got done reading it! Awesome! Next we translate it into hieroglyphics using this cool website we found!
Hi there Winterius! I am bringing over your cow that I had borrowed in November through March. Even though it’s May I’m making my way over to your temple. Tell your mother I’m coming. It just happened that my animals had run away so I’m wondering if you can help me work. Is that okay with you? In fact, it’s the whole reason I’d borrowed your cow for. I’m very sorry that I didn’t tell you before because it’s so unusual for the animals to disappear. Are you married to anyone yet? You are 12. You should be married to a man named Sirius because he knows about all laws and is the pharaoh so you’ll be the pharaoh so when you leave for any dead pharaoh in any area to make a pyramid.
Your Egyptian Friend,
I love having you at my temple! Bye now!”
**Update – March 12 2018: I missed getting this one in Lillian’s debut book, Where Would You Fly? …. If you’d like to learn more about her book, go here …. http://www.LillianDarnell.com/author
Y’all don’t forget that the customers can hear inside the bank when you are outside using the drive through!! No worries … this is a FEEL GOOD post.
I was in the bank yesterday and overheard a customer being grumpy about having to show her driver’s license to cash a check as the teller was new and didn’t know her yet. I smiled at the young lady helping me and said “That customer just needs some love and kindness.”
The bank employee helping Ms. Grumpy continued to be kind and apologize for the inconvenience. Ms. Grumpy sent over her DL and the teller cashed her check. When the teller sent the money out, Ms. Grumpy apologized for being grumpy. The two chatted happily about what each of them were cooking for the holidays and off Ms. Grumpy went .. EXCEPT, she had left behind Ms. Grumpy and drove away Ms. HappY …
I looked at the teller helping me and said, “See, she just needed some love.” I left HappY and both tellers were happy and smiling too!
