Mirth on Monday: Jeanne Robertson

Saturday night, John and I spent the evening laughing.  We attended a concert by Jeanne Robertson.  She was Miss Congeniality in the Miss America pageant years ago, and it is obvious why.  Before the show started, she came out in the lobby and introduced herself to everyone individually.  She asked us about Willow, and said she would know her show was going well if she heard Willow laughing during the performance.  As we left the theater, we were handed a recipe for pound cake.  Watch the following clip to hear all about the time she sent her husband to the store for the ingredients:

  1. Either my computer or YouTube is having issues this morning as I couldn't get the video to play. But thanks for trying to share with me! Hope it is a wonderful week.

    1. Hmm, it's working for me, so I'm not sure what the problem is. You can try going directly the YouTube and searching for Jeanne Robertson. She's really funny!

  2. I AM SO JEALOUS!!!!!!!! Actually, sinfully jealous. She is a fantastically funny storyteller. I listened to her all the time back before our XM radio broke. You had to have had a great time.

    1. She tours all over, so maybe you'll get a chance to see her sometime. We hadn't actually ever heard her before--no XM radio in our cars--but saw her show listed in the newspaper and decided to go. So glad we did! She is very funny.

  3. That clip was hilarious! I've been sitting here, laughing out loud, and my husband's across the room saying "What's so funny?!" Thanks for sharing!

    DID Willow laugh during her performance? I don't know how she couldn't have!

    1. Willow had her vest on, so I think she didn't realize that laughing was appropriate. She is such a serious worker! :-)

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this. Love her accent and her story and I think I will be watching all of her stuff on YouTube... Love her style of storytelling!
    I hope Willow enjoyed it too. I know I did!

  5. Oh my goodness, this was hilarious! But you have to know, I will be talking "Southern" for the rest of the day! I was born and raised in Louisiana, and worked so hard to lose that accent when we moved to OR -- teen years and all; but I can pick it up and run with it at the drop of a hat. I even read some of my Southern blog friends' blogs with a Southern accent. My hubby will sometimes start laughing and ask me which Southern blog I was reading. It can get pretty funny at times!

Conversations are so much nicer when more than one person does the talking. :-) Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts; I'd love to hear from you!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
