Truthfully? I almost took a photo of our plastic recycle container that we set out at curbside bi-monthly. LOL It's filled with plastic items. But, it was too hot [near 90 degrees -Farenheit, I didn't want to go back outside]. Besides, who really wants to look at someone's garbage, right? The A C was on, so I took a trip around the house in much comfort, and found these two. Plastic toys.

Top one is from the movie, SHREK....Donkey. It's an action figure. The bottom one is the face of one of my Cabbage Patch Dolls.

COMMENT HERE if you'd prefer to skip a tag I did, below.


Thom at Thom's Place.... tagged me.

Here is the gist of it all. You name the person that tagged you, which I did...see? Thom, above this. So far, so good. This blond was able to follow for that. The next thing to do is to list six things that are unimportant, but make me happy. Easy 'nough. [I've been called a cheap date before....errrr, um. Well, I think you understand that. Get your mind out of the gutter now, y'hear?] Then, when that's done, tag 6 bloggers. So on with the show...Here, are my list of sixes [6 things, and 6 bloggers]:
    1. A day filled with sunshine and cool breezes
    2. My sweet cheeks' cheek dimples!! He still has his youthful grin
    3. Making lists [may not be important, but having a list made out to not forget sure makes me happy]
    4. A clothes brush handy ---wearing black and holding Winston. White, long-haired Winston.
    5. Inspirational idea for a watercolor project on paper
    6. The Gulf of Mexico at 'my back door'. Seriously, it's unimportant--I could reside anywhere, but it's gonna make me happy none the less

      Normally, I don't tag specifically. I always post that if you'd like to do the tag; go ahead. But....
      I'm TAGGING this time.

      You'll know who you are. Just look here:

Tomorrow, I hope to post some of the Disney on Ice that we went to see Thursday evening.

  9. Fun pix for this week's theme.

    I didn't realize until today that we are sort of neighbors. I live on Florida's Gulf Coast, we're just a stone's throw across the water from you.

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

  10. loved the toys. Have friends who have extensive Cabbage Patch collections still.

  12. I had a tough time with this one, too. Love your choices!

  13. Garbagde might be very interesting, I saw that in crime stories, lol ! But of course that's nicer !

  14. What a great choice for this week! You cabbage patch is quite adorable!

  15. Mornin' Anni, I loved your list of things that made you happy. The recipe for chocolate turtles can be found here...http://candy.about.com/od/kidfriendlytreats/r/turtles.htm

  16. So we had 90s for two days, then back down agsin - very cool and overcast this moning and forecast all week-end. Of course, for the holiday. It'll be good for those crazy Boulder runners, though!

  17. Dear Anni ~~ Thank you so much for the birthday greetings and it is on Sunday, tomorrow, So I am looking forward to seeing some of my family
    the boys, as the girls live too far away. We should have a lovely day.
    I liked your toys, never liked cabbage patch dolls, but yours is cute. Take care, Love, Merle.

  18. it must b wonderful living at the edge of the gulf of Mexico.

  19. My first thought when I opened up your blog was BEAUTIFUL! It's always unique and interesting and opened OK for me, but I really like the new look.
    It's a fun thing you tagged me for. It'll take a little thought but not too much. lol
    Have a great weekend.

    BTW our recycle barrel is picked up every Monday. I've thought about photographing them all lined up down the street on pickup day for Blue Monday. (They're blue of course)


  20. Love the cabbage patch doll. Thanks for visiting the IE Mommy, hope to see you again soon!

  21. Love your choices for plastic, particularly love the cabbage patch doll! so sweet.
    Enjoyed your list too :)
    Happy weekend, Anni!

  22. If it's any consolation, it's pretty hot here too -- and humid (and very wet, actually) to boot. So yeah, I've been not that into going out too! :S

  23. Very cool pictures :) Have a wonderful day!

  24. Thanks for stopping by...
    I forgot about the cabbages... can I ask how many you have?
    I started collecting them before my daughter was born... about 25 years ago, when the plastic faces smelled like baby powder. My very first CPK still smells like baby powder. Who could forget the craziness and the lines in front of Target and other stores!

  25. Plastic toys can be cleaned again and again. I remember doing that all the time when my son was little.

  26. Donkey is great. I like all the Shrek films

  27. Anonymous5/23/2009

    I so loved Shrek. Excellent movie. And your unimportant things that make you happy were excellent. Have a happy Memorial Day Weekend :)

  35. I certainly wouldn't mind having the Gulf at my back door!

  36. Great choice for this week's PH theme!

  37. Anni,
