Gratitude Monday -- Social Media Edition

I am grateful for social media. Not just because it keeps me in contact with friends and news and whatnot, but because it is currently making my job easier.

I'm doing some freelance work for the local paper and have had to search out people and/or organizations to contact. On more than a few occasions a social media site has served my needs.

It's been a great help and for it I am grateful.

Gratitude Monday - Bib and Tucker Edition

I am very grateful for the rib bibs my cousin sent us.
One side has hogs, the other cows.  Terry Utas did this of her own accord after I joked with her about needing one for everyday use.
We've used them a few times, notably when we have ribs such as in the photo.
As they were swine ribs, we wore the bibs swine side out.
It protected my clothing, but as you can see, did nothing to stop the spread of sauce on my face.

*Please note the use of tucker in the headline is in reference to the Australian slang term for food and should not be confused with the women's clothing item from the 17th to 19th Centuries.

Gratitude Monday --Spring 'n' All Edition

While it is not officially spring, it may as well be.
Much of the snow is gone, pussy willows are out, and I heard a robin singing in the neighbour's spruce tree Sunday morning.

It wasn't much of a winter, but I am still grateful spring is well on its way.
