Put Another Log on the Fire

Put another log on the fire
     Cook me up some bacon and some beans,
     Go out to the car and change the tires,
     Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans; 

Fill my pipe and then go fetch my slippers,
     And boil me up another pot of tea.
     Then put another log on the fire, babe
     And come and tell me why you're leaving me.

Snuffle, sneeze . . . cough and wheeze. My Tom hasn't left me – yet – though he wisely retreats to the upstairs to escape my sickly whining. (Guess I better not sing him this ole Shel Silverstein song and give him any ideas.)

Comfort food sounds so good. Here's a project I put together for a church craft event a while back. It's a mini-popcorn holder.


Just take a 8-1/2" by 5-1/2" piece of cardstock and score it at 2" and 6". Put sticky tape all along the bottom and one side, fold over and adhere. Run the bottom through the scrimper tool just a few cranks. Finally, use a circle punch for the top notch. We also made a belly band and a little medalion with the circle scallop punch. We used Old Olive and Chocolate Chip (ah, the hint of more comfort food) cardstock, Ski Slope paper, that lucious Alpine originals ribbon, and an array of circle punches. You can't see it, but we also used VersaMark ink to stamp snow flakes on the old olive cardstock.

So, is it starve a fever, feed a cold? What do you do if you have a cold with a fever? My head is so fuzzy – I don't remember them covering that in nursing school. All I know is that chocolate cures all ills.

Tom – where's my hot chocolate?

    I’m so sorry that you’re sick, that is miserable. Hope you’re feeling better soon. I saw that you commented on my blog, that made my day! I hope that you don’t mind, but I’ve had your blog link on MY blog for awhile now. Erin Cummings is one of my best friends, she kept telling me about the fun projects she makes at your house, and told me about your link. I check it out often. Keep up the great work!
