The aliens...

...have landed on my toile.
The peeking one is my favorite:
And these little fellows are being fed mystery berries:
I got the idea for the aliens (and the blue one is roughly modeled after one) from these designs available at Sublime Stitching. There are some terrific ideas/designs available--I also really like the zombies and monsters series.

My toast t-shirt that I recently purchased from Threadless (during their $5 sale) has been making me absurdly happy.

It is really hard to be a grouch, even on a day like today when it is pissing rain, when wearing this shirt. I just look down and smile at the happy toast spreading on the jam. What could be nicer?

And then I go make myself (another) piece of toast. Right now I'm working my way through a loaf of my new favorite bread-for-toast: Zingerman's 8-grain 3-seed bread, a bread that is equally good with thick cut orange marmalade and sharp cheddar cheese.

Maybe not such a good t-shirt for people on low carb diets, but awfully good for me.
