Gonna Be A Bear

In this life I'm a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. When you're a bear you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.
Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that too.
When you're a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.
If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers with your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that.
If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS tht you will have hairly legs and excess body fat.
Yup, gonna be a bear!

I love that idea of being a bear. It makes so much sense!

Amy said...

Nedra, your quilt is WONDERFUL! This blocks looks GREAT in Kaffe fabrics! Bravo!!!

Ricci's quilt.......((((clap..clap...clap))))...((((clap..clap..clap))). I love her quilt...that fabric I adore!!

Yes Nedra..I can go south 45 miles and get full service quilt stuff and things or I can go north 30 miles and get only Wal-Mart. At least Wal-mart has thread. My town is 1200 pop. and barely have a grocery store. Only in the last couple of yrs. did the grocery start staying open until 8:00 in the evening, and no groceries on Sunday either.

I haven't forgotten your request for a black-eyed pea picture!!

Can I be the bear too? I'm just thinking I am grumpy like a bear right now trying to get my children to pick up their rooms!

a simple quilter said...

Oh yes! Me too! I want to be a bear! I've always thought that if anyone messed with my children that I'd probably "go grizzly" on them!

Do you mind if I pirate your post and link back to it?

I'll be starting some miniature bears soon and this would be a fun addition.
