Alphabet Laughs-I Is For Indigo And Ice Cream And Idiots

I love the color Indigo!
I love the 
Indigo Blue Buntings
that show up at our feeders
in the Spring on their
way to their summer home
North of us.
Aren't they beautiful?
I also love the old toweling
that had indigo stripes.
You can buy new ones but
they just don't have the 
feel to them that the old 
ones possess.
I have ONE of them left
that belonged to my mother.

I is also for 
Ice Cream.
If you have been following 
for a while you know that
I don't eat sugar.
I have discovered a wonderful
Breyer's No Sugar Added
Vanilla Ice Cream.
I you're dying for something
sweet-but don't want the sugar
this is a delicious alternative.
Do you know I only like 
VANILLA ice cream?
Plain and simple-
that's me.
Wait- I don't mean I am in
I mean I am easy to please.
Don't ask MyHero
about that though,
well, I haven't told you this,
but he is a known liar.

And-Last but not Least-
I come to the subject 
of Idiots.
Can you 
BELIEVE they made a
remake of a movie about
Wonder what they are looking at?
You will have to pop back by
tomorrow to see what has
captured their interest!

Last day to sign up for the
Just leave me a comment.
If you have commented  on all
five other G posts this
will count to put your name
in the drawing SIX times! your heel together
and whisper
SweetCheeks name
and maybe she will pick YOU!

your photo name

Have a super Monday. Makes me almost want to forgo the cheerios this morning for breakfast and find some ice cream instead.

Hi Diana,
I'm stopping by to say hello and see what you are up to! I've been an absent blogger for awhile and trying to catch up.

Would you believe that I watched that silly movie with my family on pay per view! LOL! It had to be the dumbest movie ever.

Love the indigo blue.


Mark said...

I click my heels daily anyway so I'm half way there!
And I always say, "I take my ice-cream like I take my men, French and Vanilla".

I have to say indigo is my favorite color as well, I have a tube of indigo water color paint that has to be replenished often, I use it a lot!!!!!
Have a wonderful monday!

Cotton Peony said...

oooch, now dearie sweetpea, Grandmamere to sweetcheeks.. I don't do 'hubby' movies nor the sugarfree.. so you're on your own for that one! (wink wink)

But I'm happy to see you had a great weekend!!!

with love,

Cotton Peony

Hi Diana, Sweetcheeks is probably asking if it is time that she gets to pull out the name. I would love for it to be me. It would make a good birthday present. Breyer Ice Cream whether Vanilla or another favor is yummy. We like Peach, Strawberry, they normally have a pretty good selection in our neck of the woods. It makes me cold to think about it of course could it be because it is 48 degrees outside. Have a great day. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

pembrokeshire lass said...

OOOOOOOOOOOhhh you are a one! Stringing us all along! As for the other thing....'easy to please?! Hmmm....would sweet cheeks have an answer to that? Joan

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Just stopping by to say Goooooood Monday Morning! Did you know, back along time ago, when I was first married, I worked with Curly's daughter? She was a very quiet girl. :)

Maria Elena said...

I'll take the vanilla ice cream any day, but it has to have a few fresh peaches or strawberries on the plate next to it! LOL Hope you have a great week!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

The Idiot remark caught my attention right away!

WeeFaerie said...

Love vanilla but then coffee ice cream is my favorite, by Haagen-dazs. Have you tried it? I know you love your Starbucks, coffee ice cream could be a new fav. Have a great week!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That picture of Sweet Cheeks is adorable, Diana! I couldn't understand why they made a Three Stooges movie. I just saw it was on Movies on Demand on our cable, but I can't see paying to see it. I'll probably wait until it hits a local cable channel.

Jettie said...

Hey, I resemble that!
In case you never watched those idiots, that was one of their lines, but I won't be going to see the movie, some things are better in the original version.
Sweetcheeks, I'll bake cookies for you, if you'll draw my name.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Several years ago we had the indigo bunting birds here on my feeders. They were so pretty and haven't seen them since. I think that movie flopped. Could not believe they tried to bring them back.

Anonymous said...

My husband asked me what my favourite colour is a few days back, I told him I didn't have one, he told me I was odd, lol.

Susie said...

Heels??Diana, You must know that I seem to only wear sneakers.:):) I am back and I have missed my blog family. Tired to the bone from walking , rushing , and lack of sleep. This is for Sweetcheeks" please pick me..shh, don't tell anyone that i am asking:):)" Smiles, to all,xoxo, Susie

Celestina Marie said...

Oh such a cute post and for the Ice cream, my favorite is vanilla too. I have tried the sugar free ice cream and it is good.
Saw that movie and it was okay and funny in a new kind of way. Nothing will ever compare to the real three guys!! But the actors did a great job of trying to capture the characters.
Thanks for stopping by and your new following. Hope you have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Donna said...

What a cute photo of Sweetcheeks! She really is growing up fast! I say, give me real ice cream with sugar (sorry, I don't do sugar free, except for my Diet Coke!!). My favorite flavor when we lived in WA was Tilamook black cherry. Sadly, that's only available in the Pacific Northwest (sniff, sniff!). So give me a bowl of Hudsonville (do you have that brand in WI?) triple peanut butter cup, and I am happy a happy camper!

Connie said...

Very fun!! Why don't you link this up with me at Say It Saturday? Thre's still time today :)

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

The Three Stooges. They give me the willies. My mother says when I was a little girl, if the Three Stooges came on TV, I would run and hide. I still feel that way about them.

I do like ice cream though!

Sarah said...

Oh, give me vanilla too. I love to melt it down to a creamy soft spoonful. Can't keep it in the house though because, well, you see it would disappear as soon as "the chef" discovered it was in the freezer. Now if I bought a different flavor, he wouldn't even bother. Guess there are others who only like vanilla!
Have a beautiful indigo Monday morning........Sarah

jewels in the garden +: ) said...

My favorite ice cram is vanilla and when so many different flavors are before me and I order vanilla, I feel like such a bore! But you certainly are not (a bore) so I am in excellent company!!! ;)

Infuse With Liz said...

Ahh...Indigo Buntings! I used to see them here but it's been a long time.
The three stooges! Yikes! I hate to admit I watched them a lot as a kid...I'll wait to see this one when it's on cable!
I love plain vanilla ice cream too and many more flavors!
I hope your granddaughter is feeling much better!

Pam said...

Ice cream seems pointless if you take away the sugar, but I'll trust you on that. Hope you had a fantastic weekend.

Gypsy Heart said...

I could eat Ice Cream allll the time! Just cannot buy it for that very reason although I must try this sugar free version. :)

Hope you have a wonderful week ~

Tete said...

I is for imagination and you have that in spades! Cute post.
Pick me, SweetCHeeks!

Beth said...

Vanilla ice cream is the best because you can add all kinds of good stuff on time of it. ;-)

Nellie said...

Well, now. 'Twould be a real "feat" for me to click MY heels together!:) Everybody would be rolling on the floor!:)

The Indigo Bunting was once Country Girl's favorite bird. I can't remember that we have ever seen them here where we live, but actually spotted one in the "green space" around the school where I taught when we were on a nature walk.

It is dangerous to have even sugar free ice cream around here.:)

You never fail to give me a reason to smile, Diana. Thank you!

xo Nellie

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I don't know about the idiots you are talking about...but I know plenty of others! ...on a more positive note, what a lovely towel!

Ron said...

Vanilla ice cream is my favorite. I like to add Reese's peanut butter cups to it. xo

Anonymous said...

The title of your posts drew me right in! You are so funny. Hope you're having a great beginning to the week.

xo, abby

Diana Ferguson said...

Homemade vanilla -- the best!!

ImSoVintage said...

Boy, aren't men just the worst liars LOL. I don't eat suga either, so I will have to try that ice cream. have a great day.

Nonnie said...

I have to figure out a way to put the sugar free ice cream in a Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla container to get my guy to eat it. Sweet Cheeks looks like a real sweetie!

Kay G. said...

People make fun of me for my love of vanilla ice cream! (Not HOMESTYLE, not FRENCH VANILLA, just vanilla!) Sweet Cheeks, pick me!! xx

Cottage and Broome said...

A cute post! I wish I could give up sugar but I never drink soda/pop. So nice you have one vintage towel left from your Mom. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

Busy Bee Suz said...

Vanilla? YOU? VANILLA? I would never have guessed it.
I love chocolate ice cream with tons of NUTS. Surprised? LOL
I can't imagine going to see THAT movie. Oye Vey.

lynn said...

you sure know how to write an interesting, fun post, diana:) i LOVE sweet cheeks pic--think child model!

LANA said...

I love indigo too. And ice cream. I have discovered Stonyfield's organic frozen yogurt. Only 100 calories in a half-cup, zero fat! It tastes just like ice cream, it does not have that yogurt tang that I do not like. I am not sure about the sugar, but at only 100 calories it can't have much. - Lana

Annmarie Pipa said...

what a gorgeous bird!!! the color really is beautiful. we had bluebirds nesting in our woods this yr..I loved seeing them.
and BTW, ice cream with chocolate syrup is my true downfall.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Darling! "I" is also for incredible, and that is YOU. :-)

I'm avoiding sugar, too -- it's amazing how many things sugar pops up in, things like tomatoes for instance. Wonder when they'll invent a reduced sugar tomato?

Sweet Cheeks looks so TALL in that picture... oh my. Why do they grow so fast?

Love -- Cass

Red Rose Alley said...

I can't eat sugar right now either. I didn't know Breyers had sugar free, yaaaay! I love the color Indigo too. I don't have anything in my house with that color, but whenever I see something, I still have to buy it.
I'm still crossing my fingers for the giveaway.

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Indigo birds are so pretty. Boy, when I scrolled down to to see the idiots I laughed so hard. Spot on! SweetCheeks is adorable!!!!!!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

HUm...I can't wait to see what the idiots are looking at! Oh sugar free ice cream and Breyer's at that, I have got to check it out!!!


andrea@townandprairie said...

C'mon, Sweet Cheeks, you know I'm all over those napkins!

pollydove said...

Your posts always make me smile! No sugar? That, I did not know. I would feel so much better if I adopted that same habit (my aching joints would appreciate it) - but I unfortunately picked up the same habit as that of my grandmother and "need" to have something sweet after every meal, including breakfast! (OY!)

SavannahGranny said...

Oh, Sweet Cheeks please pick me!
I clicked my heels together but one of my stiletto heels snapped and then I snapped my suspenders. This is a "g" rated blog so I will stop there. However, I really need to win, a win would go a long way to heal my broken *** . I mean my broken heart.
Hugs and Blessings,

I'm on an icecream ban right now until after my sons wedding so I fit into my dress! that icecream looks so good..I'm gonna have to try some soon...after the wedding...if my willpower holds out! (p.s....tell sweetcheeks to pick me! :O))

Saimi said...

'I' like your creativity with the alphabet. The husband and I along with another couple go out to eat once a month going to restaurant that begins with each letter of the alphabet.

Last month was our turn to pick and we had the letter I. Sad to say we had nothing to choose from so we cheated and went to a Mexican place called, "Aye Carumba"

It sounded good and we all got a good laugh.

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

Somehow I never thought you'd be an all vanilla girl? I think I've missed a few of your letter posts (and they have been so fun) so I'd better go get caught up.

missy said...

Bryers is the best..cut my teeth on it..The real stuff with the "dirt" in it...(vanilla beans)

Holly said...

well, I had to read this one when I read today's post. How funny you are!! Yes, yesterday's things do feel better! I have some of my Grammy's things and just love them! I didn't realize you don't eat sugar! Wow, you are my inspiration. . . for when I decide to do that. =0)
Why does everything have to taste so good that isn't good for you?!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

You Instantly make me laugh!!
I am sure you are putting together a pretty outfit for SC to wear while picking the winner!

FabShabbyRoses said...

I'm still catching up! HA! I'll get all caught up soon! Love the idea of this ice-cream! I will look for it and try it!

Teresa said...

I bet sweetcheeks is ready to pull the name out of the hat! Love your post as always.

Jann Olson said...

Whispering Sweet Cheeks as I am thinking what a darling fairy she is! No sugar, wish I has such will power. I do know that this ice cream is yummy. Hubs and I love vanilla too!

I always despised the Three Stooges!!! The ice cream looks so good and would be a good treat for John!
Beautiful photo of SweetCheeks. Wishing you a pleasant evening.
