Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs

We waited until nearly the last minute, but we did squeeze in this activity Saturday night.  I learned about  it last year on this website.  Waiting to unwrap these eggs is like waiting to unwrap Christmas presents.

Why Didn't I Think of That?

For how many years did hospitals routinely use these for sickness?  Did anyone ever feel confident getting sick into this shallow, small, bean-shaped vessel?

Who was the smarty-pants that came up with this?  I feel I have brain power enough to invent such a thing.  Why didn't I?  This sickness bag stores compactly and looks as though it would do its job perfectly (fortunately, Brent didn't need to test it out after his recent ACL surgery.)  Then, you just toss it out.  Genius.  They should make these available for household purchase.  Maybe they do - it's not something for which I typically shop.  

This is the best use for the old emesis basin.  I've been storing my toothbrush in this for many years.

What Flowers Grow on Faces?


The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Oregon has 40 acres of tulips

Not all of them were in bloom at once.  The colors were unbelievable.
