Things That Made Me Smile!

I think I will try to post things on Sunday that make me  smile –

Here’s one.  Go to Google and search for “Let it Snow” Sit back and enjoy the show!  Actually I’ve made it even easier!  Just click the link – although I’m not sure how long the show will last!

Another thing that makes me smile is the Tips for Keeping Warm but I’ve already blogged about that!

And of course messages from my daughter that refer to me as a “beautiful mother”

Singing carols at the Haysboro Community Centre!

People laughing at my jokes!

I didn’t really pay much attention to all the things that made me smile this week, but I hope that I’ll have more next Sunday!

In the meantime, here’s the next installment in the story.  I’m going to hunker down and do some planning – big shopping day tomorrow!

The Cinnamon Bear, episode #19: “Wooden Indian”
[Originally broadcast 17 December 1937 — 2.82mb, 12:19]
Judy and Jimmy are being chased by Chief Cook and Bottle Washer, a wooden Indian who wants Crazy Quilt’s pelt for his girlfriend Many Happy Returns. Judy trades her looking glass to him instead. After he leaves, they encounter the Wintergreen Witch again in the Golden Grove.

What makes you smile these days?

Tips for Keeping Warm – explained!

First the musical version of  Tips for Keeping warm!  This has been keeping me amused for the past few days, even though the weather here in Calgary hasn’t really been that cold lately.  We sure did have a few cold days in November though!  Take a few minutes and have a listen!

Now that you’ve listened to it, here are some definitions that I had to go look up!

“Rocking a Scarf” is all about wearing one – in this case the chair is “rocking” because I haven’t finished it yet – new deadline is the cruise in 2013!  There are even You-tube videos on how to rock a scarf if you’re interested!

“Raw Bar” – being out of the loop, I had to google this one as well:  It’s a restaurant in downtown Calgary.  Never been there, so I can’t say what it’s like. “Hi-fi” clubbing also happens at a bar/danceclub/art gallery.  Can’t say I’ll use this tip, but at least now I know what it is!

Nose hats don’t get you much on Google, or Ravelry (My go-to place for all things yarn!) but here’s a link for knitted nose warmers!    And here’s another one!

All these links, but now I know what these things mean.  And given that it can get very, very, very, cold in Calgary, it pays to be informed!

Thank you Calgary Philharmonic for making me smile and teaching me something new!

I’ve got to get back to work – and to the gym, but this was a fun post to write!

For those of you who are following the quest for the silver star, here’s the next episode:   “Fee Foe the Gentle Giant”
[Originally broadcast 09 December 1937 — 2.91mb, 12:41]
Fee Foe the Gentle Giant shows Judy and Jimmy the Goody-Goody Grove and invites them for lunch. They start to follow Crazy Quilt when it suddenly gets very, very dark!

I wonder how many nose-warmers I can make during one episode.

Have a great Saturday!
