    Thirteen Things about Leanne, Thursday, October 12, 2006
    My other Thirteens
    1. Mama always said, “if you can’t say nothin’ nice, don’t say nothin’ at all”.

    2. I could use a roll of duct tape for that, Mom.

    3. I am grieving the loss of two beautiful shade trees this week. They’ve been hacked.

    4. I do seriously wonder if that’s so “good for the trees” how trees ever managed to survive before man came along to make them “healthy”.

    5. I watched as a limb fell and a squirrel was flung to the ground – he scampered to find shelter across the street.

    6. Instead of simply apologizing (“woops, sorry ma’am” would have sufficed) for one large limb breaking the peonies that I’ve spent 5 years trying to grow, the guy spent entirely too much time telling me they grow back and I should mow them over. After he told me the “water’s just weighing them down”.

    7. By the end of next week, I hope to have an entirely different perspective – because right now I would give my last piece of Apple Pie to the first person to arrive with and help me pack up a U-Haul van. By the end of next week, I shall have solitude while I work. I am determined.

    8. I made myself THE yummiest reuben sandwich EVER for lunch today.

    9. I have my next Eye Ate It™ piece prepared, but haven’t painted it yet. Tomorrow.

    10. I didn’t know until this morning that I received three awards, not two, for my entries into the Putnam Museum Bird Photography contest. I thought that my Peacock was the only one to receive awards, but my Portrait of an Eagle also received Honorable Mention in the Eagles, Hawks & Owls category. Yay! Both of those are available in print, too.

    11. I was feeling stumped this morning and getting frustrated, so when I made my lunch, I chose a yellow plate to put my sandwich on. It cheered me up. So there you go, when you’re feeling blue, pick yellow.

    12. Today, this was going to be my 13. Just for laughs. Well, I thought it was funny. But then I thought it would offend people, so I kept typing.

    13. I’m going to get back to work now!

    I liked your list. Of course, it had the effect of making me hungry for a rueben sandwhich…

    lol at the original list. that was pretty good! :giggle:
    as someone who’s currently packing up a uhaul i’d have to advise you that you are going to need something better than a slice of apple pie to get some help. lol.

    I love the back page list! The front one is good too. Something looks different here. It’s like a bizarro alternate Leanne world.

    I’m so paranoid that now I’m worried that it was my project that got you stumped and frustrated. I hope not.

    It would have been hysterical if you had gone with your original Thursday Thirteen idea. :-)

    Yellow always cheers me up too.

    Great list! Yellow–it is my daughter’s favorite color recently and she completely agrees with you.

    My computer refused to play yesterday….Love your first list…always go with your first thought unless it involves killing someone near any dear or people prunning your plants.

    I am enjoying T13. I thought I wouldn’t be able to think up of anything, much less 13, but I actually do. It’s fun!

    I also love the original 13! – this is my first time making the 13 round, a day late (thought all day Friday it was Thursday)- but I’ll be up to speed next week and am having fun now. – love the band aid post, too!
