The Toilet Paper Roll is on the Table


This is going to be a craft project...really. ;)

This morning hubby walked into the kitchen to collect his packed lunch and his goodbye kiss for the day. I was momentarily distracted by the task at hand, which was to get a picture of the empty toilet paper roll on the table. And as if that wasn't weird enough, I had to take another picture because the overhead lighting was reflecting too harshly on the cornucopia behind it.

Why was I taking a picture of an empty toilet paper roll?  Because it's the 'before' picture to a cute craft we're going to do for Thanksgiving (that we found on Pinterest).

Hubby shook his head, kissed me goodbye, and left for work.  He's getting used to these things. :)

Good husband. Don't ask questions. Just appreciate that your lunch is always ready for you. LOL

LOL the cat would be disappointed, no tp on the roll for him to eat

I just clicked on the link and that looks like a cute craft project :)

Rosey,
I have to laugh at this post! When I first saw the empty toilet paper roll I thought for sure this would be about your husband not replacing the used up roll. Once I read the post, I laughed again because I know exactly what your husband was thinking when he left for work! Being married to a blogger (not to mention being one myself) it's funny how taking multiple pictures of an toilet paper roll becomes the new normal! Even my soon-to-be seven year old will do something I praise him for and in response he'll ask, "Are you going to put this on your blog?" :)

Janine Huldie said...

Totally made me giggle, because sounds so much like my husband. He just so used to all the crazy things I do for my blog now, but still will crack up or give me that look like I am crazy!! Now I can't wait to see what you are making with this :)

Lol my lot don't throw anything away without asking, I can't wait to see your craft :)

Hahhahhaha.... My Hubs is the same way. He just doesn't ask any more. I have seen him shake his head a time or two too.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Can't wait to see it!

Oh you have a craft up your sleeve do you, Rosey? Yes, the Maddens are VERY comfortable. Listen: Everything I wear has to be 'comfortable' or I refuse to wear it. At my age, definitely comfort is #1! They are a half size too big which makes the left one slip in the heel, but I have these cool pad things I got at Target and it does the trick. Every time I wear those I get tonz of compliments and I don't have to kick them off due to pain, like the shoes I wore at my ydd's WEDDING! lol

Sandee said...

You've a smart husband. They know when to shake their heads and just move along. Mine can do the same thing.

Have a terrific day. :)

Jen said...

Yay for cute and fun craft projects. :)

Brian Miller said...

ha. shook his head and walked away...ok, i wanna see the other side of the project...smiles.

mail4rosey said...

He's a keeper, I'll give him that. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Cats are fun to watch with things that roll around and make a mess. :)

mail4rosey said...

Easy too, that's right up my crafting ability alley. ;)

mail4rosey said...

If a package comes to the house my kids immediately ask if it's for a review. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We're collecting them to make turkeys. I'm encouraging everyone to use the bathroom often (kidding...about the bathroom ;) ).

mail4rosey said...

My crafts are not like your crafts.... you have the innate talent to turn a toilet paper roll into a flourishing and festive turkey that doubles as a decorative pot holder rack (or some other great function, just saying). Our turkeys will be made of handprint construction paper cutouts, and just sit on the bookshelf to welcome people to the house. ;)

Silvie Armas said...

I can totally relate, I've had mine shake his head every now and then too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is great!! I'll definitely be back for more :)

It's a guy thing... good thing they still love us anyway. :)

mail4rosey said...

We're patiently collecting the tubes. That's tube #1. :)

mail4rosey said...

I like reading about his creative bent. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting, Carol. :)

mail4rosey said...

Hubby loves Maddens, that's his fave!! Thanks for letting me knw about the shoes (and that pads, what a great idea).

mail4rosey said...

I reciprocate when needed. :)

Terrific day to you too, Sandee. :)

mail4rosey said...

Agreed. :)

mail4rosey said...

If it's an easy craft, I'll give it a whirl. The kids like them (crafts), even the teen. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for the visit back, that's great! :)

Theresa said...

I think all husbands of wifey bloggers need to form a Shake Your Head and Walk Away club. My husband has since stopped asking about the weird stuff that goes on here.

Can't wait to see your finished project!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

When I first saw this before reading more of your explanation, I thought maybe you put the empty toilet paper roll out because your hubby had used it all up but didn't replace the roll with a new one and you were trying to give him a hint. haha! But I can't wait to see what you create with it!

Angie Brewer said...

Too funny, my husband shakes his head at me too. Looking forward to seeing your finished craft!

Mer said...

Ha! That's a cute craft, and you've got a have a picture from before it gets a turkey makeover.

Kristi Maloney said...

It's funny, my husband would probably tell me I'm using the wrong setting. (He takes a lot of pictures!) Hmmmm....now what are you making with that tp roll? I need to know! :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Cute project ahead! Everything serves a purpose for sure Rosey!:)

Launna said...

I wish I was more crafty... maybe it just isn't my thing... :)

Chatty Crone said...

Your husband sounds like a sweetie!

Kenya G. Johnson said...

LOL! I thought this story was going in another direction. Can't wait to see the finished product. I see the link so I am going to check it out.

Colette S said...

Lunch and kisses huh :) That is really lovely.

I can't wait to see your craft.

myshelomitashop said...

hahaha...my hubby also use to some weird stuff I do for the blog :P Can't wait to see the finished result!

mail4rosey said...

He did that long before I started blogging. hehehe

mail4rosey said...

I learned many years ago that my husband does not respond well to hints. ;)

Have a great weekend, Tammy!

mail4rosey said...

Must be a guy thing! :)

mail4rosey said...

Exactly, you really do!! :)

mail4rosey said...

We're just making simple turkeys. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Judy. :)

mail4rosey said...

My kiddos are the crafty ones, Launna. ;)

mail4rosey said...

He'll do in a pinch. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I saw you liked it on Pinterest, thank you. :)

My crafting skills are only a tad higher than my smartphone prowess. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for liking it on Pinterest, Colette. :)

mail4rosey said...

lol, thank goodness they're tolerant ;) :)

Binky said...

A toilet paper roll can be anything it wants to be!

mail4rosey said...

I know! Is it Wombat Day? I'm coming over to check. :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Hahaha - my hubby would have asked the same thing. He gets it now at least, though :)

Salleefur/Jesselyn/Jesster said...

My Honey/Hubby and I have known each other for about 40 years and been married for 21 - and he knows well enough NOT to ask when he comes across a scene such as you described above...

HOWEVER, I am immensely curious - not just about that the plan and intended outcome ("finished product") is going to be. But before I even get started on THAT track - or line of questioning - I just have to know what the urgency about taking the pictures of the empty toilet paper rolls!

... a sense of urgency so great that it drove you... to distraction! Please hurry and tell us what happens next - the curiousity and anticipation are almost too much to bear,,, ; - )

mail4rosey said...

And he contributes! I like how your husband responds and guest posts sometimes too. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL!! They're just little turkeys made from toilet paper rolls and construction paper. I just had a hankering to photograph the first tube I put aside, in case I wanted to put it in the post I'll maybe do later, hahha Very silly, but I stand by my decision, lol

bxcrochet said...

lol...my husband would be the same way.
