Is That Your Game Face?

I stopped in the new Goodwill store on Saturday, hoping to find an embroidery hoop, since our Wal*Mart stopped carrying them 2½ years ago (who knew?), and it's too cold to dig through barns looking for anything.  I found one at Goodwill.  Actually, I found three.  Okay, two of them had stuff in them, but even stuffed they cost the same or less than new and empty, so I snagged them all...and SugarPlum was happy as a pig in mud to carry home with her the stuffings.  Unbeknownst to her, I needed the hoops, so I can embroidery faces on animal puppet washcloths, but that's a task and report for another day, so forget that part.

I also found dresses I couldn't live without, tongs of just the sort Charles prefers for his smoking and barbecuing ventures, more sheets for weaving projects, and the find to end all finds: the game Guess What I Am.  I'd never seen it or heard of it before, but the cover looked intriguing, so I snatched it.  No, no, no, I paid for it.  I mean I grabbed that thing quickly, because I wasn't about to let any of the other...oh, maybe six...shoppers in the 6,000 s/f store beat me to it.

Mrs. Piecrust's Spelling Bee Bingo game just got shoved to second place.  Sorry all over myself, Mrs. Piecrust, but really, you enjoyed a year-plus reign as best supplier of games.

Over dinner...

Poppie:  What did you do today, SugarPlum?

SugarPlum:  We played games.

Nana:  SugarPlum was a kangaroo.

SugarPlum:  Well, Nana was a snake!

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.  Isaiah 55:10-12
