K is for ...

I started working on this yesterday ... a full photo is below.

Kid … I was one once …and I am pretty sure I still am one … at least at heart. I remember that part of my life … it was amazing, I am blessed to have had two great parents who participated in church, the community, school, sports, activities, arts … you name it, they allowed us to experience it and they were always there … they allowed us to make mistakes and grow through the lessons learned …. Geez I could go on and on but I might just save this stuff for my P post (parents).


see .... told ya I was a kid ... it was a long time ago ...

Kidney
… Mine are just not the best … so I have to start taking much better care of them ….Enemy thy name is salt …


Kind … I try to be

I made this little basket out of felt, crepe paper, feathers, ribbon and a tin baking cup ... now i just gotta make a few more but first i need to buy more glitter!


Kalamity officially defined in the dictionary as:

calamity [kəˈlæmɪtɪ]

1. a disaster or misfortune, esp one causing extreme havoc, distress, or misery

2. a state or feeling of deep distress or misery


Yup, that’s me … I think this week I am Kalamity Jo … spelled with K cuz it’s my blog, my post and hey it just fits me oh so well!!! I am a disaster all to myself … Well you see officer, I really thought I was braking hard … I just kinda mixed up the brake pedal with the gas pedal ... that’s how I managed to push this 5th wheel up and over the two foot cement wall and through the wire fence … seriously, do you think my windshield will hold long enough for me to drive home??? It is really amazing what a small car can do to a great big 5th wheel … then there was that roasting pan incident … the one where I totally forgot to use my oven mitt … oh I could go on and on and on … but I really don’t want to give you all nightmares … but seriously, my daughter cringes everytime I pick up a knife in the kitchen to cut up veggies. I think my dad summed me up perfectly when he bought me this cute little tile that says “The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow” … yup, that’s me … at least I can laugh at my follies!

The one and only tile ... perfect for me!


Signing off this week as Kalamity Jo! Happy Easter everyone!

Viki said...

What a cute picture of you as a child. Here's hoping no Kalamity's today for you. I think Honey really wants the candy in the Easter basket LOL.

Kidneys are so overrated anyway. ;) You were such a cutie!

laterg8r said...

omg i loooove that pic of you as a kid, you have to scrap it :D

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I salt everything, apples, watermelon, ice cream (just kidding)..I should probably try to cut back...

Tina said...

As the survivor of many a crisis that has become the joke of tomorrow, I covet that tile...nice to meet you!

Jenny said...

Jo! You make me laugh! You make me think! You make me envy your crafting ability!

I just love each week coming to your Alphabe-Thursday post!

A+

I actually have the word saltaholic on my cattle prod board...so I share your problem!

Short and Sweet said...

Your "K" post is hilarious! Cute photos and, yes, in happier times we were all kids. Those were the days!

Jen R said...

So you're saying you're a little bit Klumsy? hahahaha. Ok, enough K related debauchery for one day.

Beth said...

Love your sense of humor and your crafting skill! (I think God left that gene out when he made me ... craftiness ... humor I have at least most of the time).

New follower from Jenny's place! :)

Amy said...

what a cute dog.. great work on the basket too. Thanks for stopping by today.

Patti said...

Cute post; your baby pic is PRICELESS!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

You were such a cute little kid!! Enjoyed your post. That little basket is adorable.

Brenda said...

Your basket is adorable and so is your post. Better watch where your walking! Thanks for stopping by!

RNSANE said...

Your post was so hysterical though I shouldn't laugh at your calamities! Sounds like you might need to wear a crash helmet at all times! You seem to maintain a wonderful sense of humor at all times and I used to do the same. I need to get a little of that back.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. You cheered me up, Jo!

Steph said...

Not only were you a kid, you were a way cute kid.... Just precious. I hope no kalamities befall any time soon, but I appreciate your sense of humor for when they do. Lovely Easter basket and sweetie pie, Honey.

Steph said...

btw I really like the Van Dyke quote on your blog.

Amanda said...

I like these posts when you share a little about yourself! And just so you know you're not alone-- this week I backed into one of those big green steel mailboxes. I did a lot more damage to it than I did to my truck! the postal supervisor who came out to take the report did not seem too happy....

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Great K words and SWEET puppy! Love that cutie!!!

Bits-n-Pieces said...

awww..what a cute little Honey!! :)

Linda said...

happy K day! Great post! I'm still a Kid also!!!

Nora Johnson said...

Fabulous post - & thanks for stopping by mine too!

XOXO LOLA:)

Izzy said...

Happy Easter Jo! loved the post - worried about your mishaps...hopefully there will be no more Kalamities.
((hugs)) and LOVE the photo of you and the tile your father gave you...just perfect!

Christy said...

Brakes and gas pedals are so dang close together - you are not the only one who has mixed them up! I really love the quote also, I may have to print it up and put on the fridge.

mub said...

I love that kid picture of you! Your easter basket is really cute too, how big is it?

I HOPE you have a kalamity free next week!

Catherine said...

What a fun K post!
I should probably be called Calamity Catherine ... my mom used to just call me "Grace", I think she was hoping I would somehow absorb it and get a bit. Didn't work, I still run into things LOL!
Honey is absolutely adorable.
Blessings,
Catherine :)

Cute K post. I totally understand the calamity bit, that should probably be my middle name too! Love the tile, what a great quote. And that is one of the cutest baby pictures I've ever seen. Happy K day to you. Kathy

Nora Johnson said...

XOXO LOLA:)

Sarah said...

Love that sign! I think it's sooooo true!!!
Cute and clever K post and I think Honey is about the "Kutest" puppy I've seen.

lissa said...

I like that you have a sense of humor about yourself and the name Kalamity Jo sounds quite adventurous!

Melinda Cornish said...
