Concerned




As they say on Facebook:
Feeling sad. 

I have noticed recently
that some of my Followers 
have left the fold here at 
Dreaming.

I realize that I have been 
away a bit more than usual 
but life seems to be some-
thing I live. Yes, Facebook has
taken me away from blogging 
more but most of it has been 
living a busy life. School, colds-
both Mr. Ken and I, a respiratory 
infection--me and all of the various 
other things I could list have taken 
me from blogging.

SO, I want to take a moment to 
THANK all of you who are still
hanging in there with me. I do
appreciate it A LOT!!

At the Mall




Over the weekend we stopped at the 
mall to see the annual "Canstruction" 
project. Our local food pantry benefits 
from the food that will come from the 
deconstruction of these projects. Those 
in need will get to choose from a lot of 
yummy goodies!

Each picture has a description of the 
project. Click on them to find out about 
each project and you'll see how many 
cans each one took
to construct.






Here we have a replica of the Kansas
City World Series Trophy.






This is a combo of our stadiums--Royals
and Chiefs. Looking at the above pic, you
will see Royals stadium on the right with
the KC and Chiefs stadium on the left.




On the back side of the Chiefs stadium
the creators made and arrowhead
from cans and jars.






This is a replica of Liberty Memorial
which is located on the campus of
the World War I Museum.






This one is my favorite one!






What creativity! Looks just like it 
is suppose to.







This is too cute too! I just realized that

the owl is sitting on a tree branch.

It is always fun to just walk around
and see what items were used to 
build these structures. Fun to see.

Saturday Fun!




Hi!

The World Series Trophy has been 
on tour and we went to see it today!

The viewing was from 1-3 pm but we 
got in line a little after 11 am. There 
were probably 8-10 groups of people 
in front of us. At 12:45 the line started 
moving and before we knew it we were 
standing THIS close to it!

We are so proud of our Kansas City
Royals and their win in the World 
Series.
This is probably a once in a lifetime
experience--unless we win THIS 
year, so we had to go.

It was soooo much fun!


Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Mr. Ken and I are feeling much better
ans so happy to be able to get out and
about.

A Special Day!




HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY everyone!!!
Just a wee bit of Valentines fun around 
our house.


One of my student's gave me this sweet 
rose.


Cards for the card shower, these were
decorated by my student's. They did
an awesome job.



Felt heart garland. I happened upon
this at Walgreen's.


This is the second heart chip I have 
found in a chip bag.



Special hot chocolate for today.




A yarn wreath that I made from a kit 
bought last year.


Mr. Ken and I hope you have a special 
day with those you love!!

A Idea




Hello!!!

No, I did not fall off the face of the 
earth. I have a case of Murphy's 
Law--big plans to blog more then
the curse of the creeping crud hits. 
Actually a respiratory infection.

Feeling better, went back to work 
today and asked EVERYONE to stop 
being so nice with their sharing of 
their crud!

On to our post--

For most, today begins the season 
of Lent and we know that lasts for 
40 days.
Today on Facebook I saw this really 
cool idea--
Take a trash bag and for the 40 days 
take one thing out of your closet each
day and drop it in the bag.  By the end 
of Lent, you will have a full trash bag 
to donate to those who need your 
goodies more than you do.

This is a great challenge for of all of us,
think of it as the 40 for 40 Challenge.
40 days, 40 things.
I'm going to do it, anyone want to join 
me??? Pictures and follow up coming 
soon.

1 Brownie Mix
1/2 can of diet cola

Mix together, pour into an 8 x 8 " 
greased baking pan and bake as 
directed on the box.
