Honestly, I think my matting here is too clunky for the image, but I love the colors and the fact the DMC floss matched the ink perfectly. That just doesn't happen often enough in my world.
The colors are a repeat of the beer can colors from yesterday's post. If you get a pop up asking for your birthday, just put a year in that gets you to the legal drinking age in the U.S. (21). So basically, any year before 1999.
My use of "Bob's your uncle" provoked some comments. I had no idea that the phrase wasn't widely known because it's been in my lexicon for forever. I googled it to find out where it came from, and it's common in Ireland, Great Britain, and the Commonwealth. Hmm. I distinctly remember my very southern grandmother using it. It means "there you have it," a concluding phrase that's humorously satisfying.
I love English. I sure hope I get to teach it this fall. At the moment, it's not looking too good.
What are some phrases you use that make you giggle? Inquiring minds, and all that.
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness,
