Cows can be puzzling

Cows can be puzzling. Or puzzled. As in a puzzle. Yes, I believe today’s cow is the first of its kind for the year and it comes from a puzzle we have in our house. My three-year-old son likes to do this puzzle over and over, put it away for a few weeks, then go back to it. It’s got only 24 pieces and I swear he could do it with his eyes closed. He’s a little puzzle wiz and makes me so proud…

Here’s the puzzle he decided to do this afternoon right after lunch, a couple of times in a row:

Isn’t itthe cutest puzzle you’ve ever seen? Thanks, Target for the $1 item! And you’ve got to give it to the puzzle makers for placing the baby pig right next to the baby cow. By the way, doesn’t this pig look like Babe? Aw…

Looking for cow decorations for your kitchen? How about cow burner covers?

I’ll make this post really short because it’s been a long weekend full of exciting adventures and I’m quickly running out of steam. I wanted to take a few minutes to show you where I found today’s cow. I was browsing the cooking department at Target, looking to update some of my bakeware as well as searching for a new multiple-tier fruit basket (and I found it!) when I stumbled upon these cute stove burner covers:

You may not see the top of the image very well because of the packaging, but it’s a rooster standing on that pig, who’s standing on the cow. By the way, have you noticed how this cow is all body? Check out the small head and really short legs. I think cattle ranchers would love to raise cows with so much meat on them!

This is another occurrence of cows and pigs portrayed together, adding confirmation to my theory that cows and pigs must be best friends on the farm. I think these three animals look like they’re practicing acrobatics to join the circus – that would be a first…

Is Target catching on to the “daily cow” concept?

I stopped at my local Target this afternoon to restock on a few cleaning supplies and milk for the family. Do you know that a Target brand gallon of 1% milk used to be $2.69 just a few weeks ago? It then went up to $2.88. Today, it was $3.22!!! Excuse me but I thought gas was going up 20 cents a week, not milk! The cheapest gas I can find here is $4.09 a gallon, so I’m starting to wonder if the milk and gas prices will continue creeping up side by side for the next few months. Will we ever end up paying more for milk than we pay for gas? What a crazy world we live in…

Getting back to Target, this is what caught my eye today in the dairy aisle, right above the ice cream:

Target Spot the dog and the daily cow!

How cool is that? Is Target finally catching on to the daily cow concept, hoping people will buy more ice cream thanks to the presence of a friendly cow? All I can say is Spot the dog looks VERY happy with his new friend. Check out his ear-to-ear smile:

Is this a match made in heaven? Target obviously thinks so, daring to subtitle the happy couple “Together for a sweet cause”. Indeed it was a sweet surprise to spot this new display today. Thanks, Target! Now, can you please take it easy on those milk prices?

Cow creamers are back in fashion!

I had to make a quick run to Target this afternoon to grab a few items in the grocery aisles. On my way to the back of the store I caught a glimpse of a brand new display on an aisle cap. It was a really nice assortment of dishes, including plates, bowls, teapots, cups and … cow creamers!

They are part of Target’s new “Blue and White” home decor collection and I have to say, I was very tempted to buy one. But clumsy as I am, it probably wouldn’t last a week at my house, so I’ll pass.

Before heading home, I stopped by the library to pick up some new books. The librarian must have known I was coming because she put this book on the shelf for me:

The Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo by Jonathan Allen

The Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo by Jonathan Allen

I’m a big fan of children’s book author Jonathan Allen (I love his Baby Owl books: I’m not scared, I’m not cute, and the hilarious I’m not Santa) so I had to grab this one too. We didn’t get a chance to read it tonight but it’s only a matter of time until we find out what’s going on with this moooing little rabbit.
