We are back home from a fun weekend away. We picked up my new car on Friday and I love it! We drove to see roomie's sister and then went on to stay with some of her friends. There are three gals who my roomie started first grade with and knew well all the way through graduation from HS. They rekindled their friendship a few years ago and have spent a weekend at each other's homes a couple of times a year. We are planning the next one here in maybe October. They are great fun and we spend all Saturday afternoon on a pontoon on a flowage--it was around 88 degrees, so the water was wonderful!

Still sick but don't want anyone to miss out on this possible win....

OK... we all love ribbon, right?

As you all know I am a Round 2 finalist for the May Arts Design Team.


On the May Arts blog all 30 submissions have been posted. If you leave a comment on that post you have a chance at winning 3 full spools of their gorgeous ribbon.


Here's the link: May Arts Ribbon Design Team Call ? Finalists? Entries {and a giveaway} | May Arts


Although I would love to receive some nice comments, by me posting this information for you to check out the submissions, it by no means is to solicit a vote. I would just hate for my SCS friends to miss out!

Vacation is over and it was back to work yesterday. Wednesday we bought a humane trap from someone on Craig's List and Friday morning we trapped the two stray kittens. We were able to find one a home on Sunday...but we still have one and it needs a home ASAP. It has now started walking around the house at night meowing.....I've been up since 1am. UGH!! (It started doing this Sunday night - I'm sure partly because it's sibling is gone now). And then for the last two days our bathroom floor has been down to the sub-floor - no shower!!! Ah - no shower and it's 90 outside.....I'm so not a fan of sponge baths.....but today is the day - they hope to have it done by the time we get home from work tonight!

That's so funny Zella... I didn't see your comment until after I typed/posted mine. Great minds (fearful ones) think alike, right?

Since it is so darn hot here as well as most of the US (I think I heard that 23 states will have temps in the 90's this week ), I think it may be camel time!

I think today is my first day of feeling somewhat back to what I consider normal.


It is hot, humid, downright oppressive here. I was out with the dogs and thankful for the little breeze there seems to be today. This weather of feeling in the 100's continues for several more days. I think it is preparing me for our move to Florida... someday


In my siggie, I am hosting another secret sister swap - ABC's and 123's. If any of you are interested I would love to have you. Sharon is playing and Dianne has in the past. No pressure. Just wanted to bring it to your attention.


I feel pretty far behind in this group as to knowing what is going on in your world but have much going on I just wanted to get a note off to you all here.


Yesterday, the hospice nurse told my dh she thinks my MIL will pass before the end of this weekend. I guess even in the last two days the cancer has progressed. I just hope she goes soon peacefully.


Gracie just had a vet appointment and is up to 5 pounds. She is an active one! I attached the lastest pics of her. Sassy is adjusting nicely to having her around.


Take care, Ladies... until the next time

Hello everyone!

We are heading out Sunday evening to go camping for a few days. DH has no clue how much goes into getting bedding, clothes, snacks, bikes, etc, etc, etc.....together! I'm running around like a wild woman. UGH At least he will be able to help Saturday getting it all packed up before heading to church Sunday.

Sassy, I am sorry to hear of your family's loss. I will keep you and your DH and all of his family in my thoughts. Please be careful as you travel, too. Heartfelt condolences!

Melina, hope you'll be able to enjoy the camping trip after all the work preparing for it!

Lela, we think alike. Hope you were able to get crafty!

I haven't made a card in days - going through withdrawal. I'm determined to do so today - for which Melina will be most grateful! But first, I am preparing lunch for a church family that is suffering right now. EEK! That will take most of my morning. Making Chicken Stuffing Bake, Homemade Mashed Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Fried Green Beans fresh from DH's garden - he's picking them right this moment, sliced tomatoes, and there's peach pie from the Farmer's Market. Does that sound good enough?

Sassy - so sorry for your loss...praying for you and your hubby.

Melina - have a fun camping - gee, I thought sponge baths were bad....no way I'd be roughing it camping! LOL!!!

Lela - welcome home for a day or two....LOL!!.....hope you get lots of crafting time in....

Jeanette - your lunch for the church family sounds WONDERFUL!!! What a heart of service you have.....I'm sure they will be most thankful. And after lunch - I hope you get some crafty time in too.

Speaking of crafty time....mine will be tomorrow morning while DH is at breakfast with the men from church. I think tonight we'll be heading to Chick-Fil-A to pick up a quick bite to eat and then back home to crash. Russ had to go in early today and working in this heat has been very draining on him (he works in a warehouse pulling orders - no a/c). I'll be getting digi's printed out for crafting tomorrow - plus figuring out what I need to make. Also this weekend I need to do some blog posts for a DT (about a month's worth) and work on a calendar for 2014.

Last, but not least - the shower update: it's in!!! But still not used.....last night was the last night of sponge baths though.....just had to wait for the caulking to dry - so after work is the maiden voyage.

Oh - and the kitten - still have it. Put another ad in the paper for this weekend...hoping it will find a home this weekend. (Lela - since you're in the area - if you know of anyone who has a barn and needs some barn cats let us know...or if you know of someone who wants a kitten).

Enjoy your Friday!

Zella, you are my HERO! I could never ever do what you've done! Without a shower, I'm mush!

My first two mission trips were to Kazakstan... and the opportunity for showers there was next to nothing (at least at that time - it may have changed by now). I think I got one or two showers in the 10 day trips. I loved being in that country, loving on the women - but yikes! I sure did miss my showers!!!

Then I was in Germany on a mission trip - years later! They had showers, all was good. The last day there, we woke up and prepared to shower for our flight home... and NO HOT WATER! I'm not talking even sort of warm. It was ICE COLD!!! My roommate chose to just take a sponge bath - less traumatic. Not me... I took an ICE COLD shower. I still shiver at the thought!

Hi all

Sassy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I am praying for your family.

Oh y'all don't feel too badly for me going camping......We have a camper and we have a great bath house at this park we are going to. So, it won't be too bad. I plan on catching up with a lot of reading.....relax, relax, relax

Hello Ladies. We went to an event called Starry Nights last night--it is a free concert outside at a local park. You bring your chairs and blankets along with whatever you want to eat and drink--they also sell things there--and Enjoy! The band last night was from Chicago--The Bad Sneakers Orchestra and they played a Steely Dan Tribute. Great Songs!

This morning we went to the farmer's market and I also spent some time watering some of the flower beds and new trees as we have not had any rain for more than 2 weeks. The temps also broke a bit, but it was still warm outside. I am in the lower level as we shut off the AC last night.

I hope you too are having a good weekend!
