I bought this cheap-o cuckoo clock from a mail order catalogue recently. It’s cheap, but I still love it. I have always wanted one. You should see the bird. He is super-cheap looking. He makes me laugh. His “coo-coo” even sounds cheap! It’s a digital recording that has the sounds of other birds in the background. Very weird. Let me go take a quick picture of him so you can see him.
Here he is:
His mouth opens and his wings flap when he coo-coos. I need to paint his little beak. I see some of the red has chipped off already. I hope my cheap little bird made you laugh. I wish I had the time to get a little video of him doing his thang so you could hear him. It’s so dumb.
*U.S. Weekly is reporting that Brangelina will tie the knot within the next few months. Whatever.
*David Beckham and wife Victoria welcomed a baby girl to their brood last Sunday. Her name: Harper Seven Beckham. (I had just told y’all that my grandbaby, who will be born in November, will be named Harper. Must be the new “it” name.) The “Seven” came about because she was born in the Seventh Month, Seventh Day, and Seventh Day of the week. Alrightee then. I should have been named Pamela Eleven Two Three. I like Pamela Sue better, don’t you?
*Suri Cruise still uses a pacifier. The horror!
What kind of ice cream maker do you use? Cuisinart 1-1/2 quart. I like it but it’s a little small if I want to make ice cream when company comes.
Ice Cream Recipe I used: 12 oz. Cool Whip, 2 cups milk, 1 can (14-oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk, pinch of salt, 1/3 cup sugar. It is good, but it was a little too sweet. (The original recipe called for 1 cup of sugar…I can’t imagine making it that sweet.) I think I like ice cream made with eggs better anyway. I will use another recipe using a traditional custard next time.
Did you give your creepy lady a name? Yes, I named her Creepy Lady. My dogs still notice her every now and then and get freaked out and bark at her. Sammi runs and hides and then barks. She’s no dummy.
Is the pattern for your cowl available? No, I didn’t use a pattern. I winged it. There are several free ones on Ravelry though.
That’s it for today…
