"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

griddle dude

all the world's a canvas

Erin's too old to play with her food
not to mention that it would be rude
instead she created griddle dude
              to show her artistic aptitude!  Hee hee...

After making home-made tortillas last night the griddle was in a sorry state.  My girlfriend went in for emergency surgery on Mother's Day so we've had 7 year old Charity staying with us for the last few days.  She enjoyed rolling tortillas.  She especially liked dusting them with extra flour while she rolled.  Hence the mess. When I went in to clean up, Erin followed me in with a "please don't wash the griddle yet!"  Which is when I met Griddle Dude.

Blessings, Debbie


  1. A smile in the kitchen is always welcome:@)

  2. LOL You could sell that on Ebay!

  3. Lol! I will have to show my son this! He loves art.


  4. Oh I am laughing...what a creative and fun family you have! This is just great!

  5. Never miss an opportunity to make fun where you find it!

  6. LOL! That's hilarious! :)

  7. Erin seems to have quite an imagination, very cute! Have a great day.

  8. Debbie,
    Homemade tortillas! I'm impressed! Maybe you could post a tutorial on how to do make tortillas.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  9. Opps had I not been doing five things at once between my IPad and phone I may have noticed the link! Silly me! Thanks for helping me out there. I have lived in the southwest for most of my life...you know...tortilla country and I have yet to make them. Perhaps because I can buy such delicious homemade tortillas and I don't have to go to the effort and then have mine not turn out!

  10. Love griddle-dude here - so creative! Art in everyday life :)

  11. I love when art is part of everyday life!

  12. Kids can see art in everything, Thanks for your comment. I always think I can help if I stay in there and don't give up. But, I went to long. Someday you think I will learn to listen to my husband? :) I wanted her to return to the Lord, I still do, but now, I am afraid for her life.
    Oh well, Thanks it is nice to know that I have sisters out there who know what it is like.
    Hey, we Elinor's have to stick together. :)

  13. Debbie,
    Please let the girls know that Beatrix is well and eating like a big girl and growing daily. She did have to have a little time out since she thought it would be alright to attempt flying out of the brooder. We discussed the rules and so far there have been no more attempted breakouts.
    She does have a brand new water container and feeder so she is feeling pretty special.
    No big deal, but let the girls know that Beatrix is in South Carolina. Beatrix wanted them to know that she is a pure "Southern chick".

  14. A Smile is worth a thousand words...no matter where it may be:)

  15. he he how funny:) Well, im looking forward to my indoor plant being as large as yours in aproximately 25 years, what a great teacher of patience it will be! I love your planting style you talked about a few posts back, sounds like I would love your garden!

  16. Thanks for stopping by at WORD Pictures the other day. I followed you back to your blog and have enjoyed checking out various posts, especially the gardening one.

  17. Griddle Dude looks a lot like Gnomelet in your previous post (where you said you had a lot of babies baking - or something like that....)

    Sweet of you to entertain/care for your friend's daughter. Hope your friend is recovering on schedule.

  18. Sorry Griddle Dude, you had so many more lovely things said about you that just disappeared into cyberspace! Perhaps it is just destiny... seeing that as soon as this photo was taken, YOU were forever erased from the griddle. At least your likeness wasn't lost. We can visit you forever, so long as blogger doesn't permanently lose YOU to cyberspace. Perish the thought!!
