I spy with my binocular eye...

This afternoon was my niece's baby shower at my sister's house. She was getting everything around, putting food on the table, and making sure that everything was in its proper place. It is through no mistake that I have nicknamed her Mini Martha because she just has this ... knack.

And then she goes and does something so ... not Martha-like that it makes me scratch my head and laugh at her.

I had posted earlier that she is a vegan and is married to the hunter of all hunters. A man who goes out hunting just about every day that he can. So he has some high-powered gadgets around the house.

And my sister ran and grabbed one of those this afternoon....a pair of binoculars.

Now, my BIL will use them to scope out deer on his property as well as the property of others because they live out in the middle of the country.

My sister, on the other hand, uses them to look at the cars that come down the road.

So here she is, and nobody has arrived at the party yet. And she spies a car in the distance.

And she spends the next five minutes before the first car's arrival mumbling things like "i wonder who drives a white Buick" or "is that Nancy (her MIL and mortal enemy)?" or "I think that is Sharon."

It is kind of freaky to see your sister, who is so prim and proper when it comes to the ways of decorating, pick up the binoculars to play "Name that baby shower guest."

Just passing by....doesn't it just make you wonder when people do unexpected things. And usually it's just little things! Anyhow, I wanted to say that I love your background. I've been thinking about switching to blogger, but I can't seem to fix the background like I want. There must be some magic trick I haven't found! lol Happy Holidays
