Morning everyone! We have to dig out from under loads of heavy & wet snow. Ugh, just when we had little patches of earth visible. Bam! Over 12 inches of white. Maybe we'll see our tulips and daffodils by May.

It was just too windy for us to venture out late yesterday when it finally quit snowing. So we'll have to face it today.

Lynn, that blows my mind that you had to turn on the AC - Our high today will be a whopping 33 degrees.

Shelly, glad that you didn't end up with all this mess. How exciting about your upcoming trip. I'd be so excited that concentrating would be difficult! I agree w/you about those shipping charges, they're too high.

Maggie, Casper and Corey are just precious! How did the second estimate for your patio go?

Well, I've got to get ready to face the day - wishing everyone a good one!

Good morning Stamp Addicts

Icky dreary weather this morning and that's how I feel. Started getting that scratchy throat again yesterday at work! What's up with that???? This is the 3rd bout since Christmas. If it's allergies, the allergy medicine I was taking isn't doing any good. If it's now, how come I keep getting it over and over so quickly???

I left work early to be home to get an estimate on the patio cover. It was just what I wanted and at a really affordable price. They do not do the concrete though so I still need to get an estimate for that unless I just let my construction guy do it. I do have another company coming on Thursday to give me a quote on installing a retractable awning, so I'm anxious to see what the cost of that will be compared to the patio cover.

I had to be up at church at 6:15 to get set up for the youth coming to learn about genealogy. I tried to get in a dose of my sore throat gargle remedy, but didn't have time so that had to wait until I got home later. The presentation went well except that none of them were prepared like they were supposed to be so it was mostly about that. Toward the end of the evening, a couple of them were actually able to find some names of their ancestors, so that was a win for sure. We get to do this again next Tuesday and I'm hoping to show them how to do more searching on the Internet.

I did use my Sage tea gargle when I got home after eating some chicken noodle soup. I didn't have time for dinner before I left for church. I must say that my throat did not get as bad as it did the last time when it felt like knives cutting it, but it is still pretty sore and I'm planning to stay home today. Ugh! I hate taking days off for nothing or to be sick. At least my boss is out of town today so he won't be in a frenzy missing me.

I was a complete BUM all weekend! I had more than enough time to do a card or two and just could not get motivated to even walk back there and look at it. I started the on-line class today so need to try to complete my first "homework" I guess!

Will check in later. I had my day all planned out and then Jim needed my help with some stuff that would take "about an hour"! Yea, RIGHT! We left at 10:00 this morning and got home about 3:30!!!!! So I'm really playing catch-up now.

Lynn
That really doesn't bother me too much. I like to do the window shopping and see all the latest styles that I can't afford to buy!!!! I also get a look at the latest fashion colors that are IN.

What did you do for your first online class?

Kelly, hugs & prayers on all that you are dealing with now. I am developing allergies to medicines as I age. Sulfur based and recently something else, the name escapes me, but it's in my history at the Dr. & the pharmacy.

Now they have a warning out for Zpak, for those with heart history, like hubby. It can send your heart into a bad state, so watch out for that one too.

Wow! We sure have a load of winners here don't we??? Congratulations to you all!

Ugh, I sure sympathize with others who are getting more snow. Enough already!
Well, HAPPY SPRING!!!!!!!! LOL! Sorry that you and others are still getting snow. One of my GF's is up visiting in Wisconsin this week and they've got snow up there too. She posted some photos on FB.

Maggie, I feel for you... literally! My throat is icky right now, too. Mine IS allergies... there was tons of pollen in DD's town... but it was worth it because I got to spend time with her. And besides, I came home to my DH with my "deep sexy voice." (That's what I call it when I am hoarse/raspy from allergies... which happens quite often in my life.)

Hope you got a better estimate on the patio this time.

Shelly, know you're looking forward to "seeing" and chatting with Katie! Oh, you asked if anyone watched basketball.......we watch the Spurs and that's about it. Don't watch all the college teams until they start the final six or eight. The patterned paper class I'm taking in an on-line class through Jennifer McGuire. It seems really good so far and a ton of tips!

Maxine and Shelly - I had no idea a person could be allergic to so much stuff! WOW! I don't think I'm allergic to anything - or if I am, don't know about it!

Jeanette, glad you had a good visit with your daughter! I'm going to see mine next week. Hate the drive but enjoy it while I'm there.

Darlene - Can't believe all the SNOW!!!!!!!! Yikes!! We broke down and turned on our AC yesterday - it got up to 96 degrees!! It was a little cooler today, so I turned it off and opened up the windows. Still got hot in here this afternoon, but I just hate to turn on that think this early in the year.

Gotta head to the city tomorrow - doctor appointment for Jim but nothing serious. MAYBE I can go shopping!!!!!!

Lynn
Thank you! They are beautiful and Casper is such a love when I can finally corral him and get to hold him for a little bit. You should see him right now. He's laying on a chair and has his head hanging over the side sleeping. He's so cute.

I did get a better estimate for the patio cover - about half of what the other guy was going to charge me. That's why I like to know exactly how they are planning to build it. This guy lays it all out for you from the topping to the columns, beams and everything so you know what you're getting.

I actually had to turn on the A/C the other day too. It didn't get quite that hot here but up in the high 80's. Now it's back down so I'm hoping I won't need either a/c or heat for awhile.

If anyone wants it I will send you the code- I refuse to buy anything....that does not sit well with me!

Jeanette and Lynn- enjoy your time with your daughters! I miss my Mom and wish she was closer- I really enjoy hanging out with her! She loves being pampered- like getting her nails done.....

Lynn- seriously- 96! We got all of the way up to 40 today- our snow Monday did not stick : )
Don't spend your $$$ all in one place tomorrow!

Darlene- did you get snow? We were supposed to get 2 storms- one- sleet and the roads were horrible Mon Am- then it snowed in the afternoon- but it did not stick......

I am working tomorrow...so better get off her and get ready for shut eye!
One more day until a week off- love that!
Sorry that you didn't get to Skype with Katie this time. The time is sure going by fast and you'll be off on your trip so soon.

Yikes! That is so high for postage. What were you going to order. I've placed a few orders here lately. On one of them, I ordered the exact amount of my win and the postage was going to be $5. I had to use PayPal to check out or send a check which I didn't want to do. When I tried to check out with PayPal, it wouldn't let me do it because the amount I owed was $0 and it wouldn't take the transaction. I emailed the girl and she e-mailed me back and said that she had my order there an she would send it out. I asked her about sending the postage and she said not to worry about it, so they did not even charge me for the postage.

Crazy weather. I would hate it if I had to dig out from all that. Estimate went very well, thanks.

Thanks. That's exactly how I sound right now. I just wish I knew what to do to keep from getting this. Apparently Zyrtec is not the right thing for me because this happens whether I'm taking it or not.

I am sorry your meds not working. I have fought allergies my entire life. In fact, when I was a child it was much worse - the doctors actually feared for my life. I do not take anything for it, though... have learned to just tough it out. I don't like the way most medicines make me feel (I feel like my heart races; probably just my imagination) so I rarely take anything when I'm sick.

Hi all! So funny - the ad right above me as I type is for a Prom Dress store .... LOL! Love those cookies! (well, I do ... 'specially if they are homemade!)

Thanks for the well wishes and good thoughts. And Maggie, WOW! ! YOu are a wealth of information! And Shelly, it sounds like you are so familiar, too. THanks girls. That's why sometimes I like to toss things out and "talk out loud" because many people are more familiar than we think, you know?

DD suffers horrendous allergies. She's been tested so we know what the triggers are and we've made HUGE changes to our home and her diet and she does have to take meds on a daily basis for that. She's been hospitalized twice due to severe attacks. IT's just so scary with her. And now this ........

We see a specialist on Friday. Not me, daddy is taking her this time. He is SO concerned, he rescheduled his patients and work so he could take her. She has to see a pediatric surgeon at Miami Children's Hospital to see what the next course of TX will be and it's probably best I'm not there anyway (I can't be, appt with my son across town that I can't reschedule) so ....... can we say blubbering mommy mess if I went!!!

Well I'm behind in two DT cards - thankfully they were so sweet and understanding - so I'm getting crafty, time for it or not!

Maggie, LOVE the pics of the 'boys' - what gorgeous coloring on the cats, truly God's wonderful work, right?!

Hope today is a good one for ya'll ........
HUGS!

Just a quick check-in for now - watching the Spurs!

Will catch up on all the posts and be back in the morning (hopefully)!

Watching the who? LOL!! (must be sports, cuz I don't want any sports so therefore it must be related somehow!) Hee hee! Enjoy your 'watching', Lynn!

I came to battle it out with the gallery again - lol! I have to do a song and dance every time I need to load a card now - it wasn't that way a few weeks ago, now I get grief! Eeek! I don't want grief! ~

Good morning Stamp Addicts

I"m up this morning to go to work although I sure wish that I could stay home again, but I really need to be back at the office. I have the coughing and blowing the nose now. I'll only be at work til 3:45 and then have to leave for my eye doctor appt. Hope he can fix the prescription for my glasses.

Lynn, how'd the Spurs do? Rockets beat the Jazz!

Yep, Kelly, I was watching the Spurs basketball team! And Maggie - they WON! I really don't watch TV at all except will watch some of the sports with Jim. Mainly because I'm afraid if I stay in my laundry/craft room all the time he'll forget what I look like! LOL! We DO love to watch the Spurs though - and they look like they'll be in the running in the play-offs, so............

I worked on a card ALL MORNING LONG!!!!!!!! ONE card! I hate when that happens but as a result, I'm very pleased with it. It was for a DT commitment that's coming up in a couple of weeks and I like to work ahead as much as possible. Now I need to work on something for the rest of this week and next week! Yikes!

Oh, I subscribe to e-mails from Taylored Expressions and they had one on there this morning that is WONDERFUL!!!! Some of the DT has shown the way they take their photos of the cards! I'm going to attempt to e-mail their e-mail to everyone here since it has so many good tips. Just click on the DT members name and it takes you to their blog where they explain it all. It's really enlightening.

Maggie, I hope you start feeling better today! That sounds ugly! Get well quick!

Our weather cooled off a bit - in the 80's now......so all is good once again. I just have a terrible feeling about what we can expect this summer. In fact, we may not even plant a garden this year!!!!!!! I'm so sad about that but I have plenty of stuff canned from last year except for green beans, so we may just do without this year. It's suppose to be extremely dry again and hot - so that's not good for a garden.

Off to do a little commenting and then maybe try to tackle another card or two.

Lynn

Default Hello

Good afternoon ladies!!! I am a little under the weather with allergies too- the Netti Pot saves me from getting all congested, but I still get the sinus headaches..... I slept until 11:30 this AM (on and off) and did not feel good enough to get up before that. I guess I needed it.

I have about 10 ladies coming over tomorrow afternoon to get creative, so I need to pick up a bit : ) They will not care if I don't, but I feel I should..... Then, tomorrow night my friend has a SU workshop for the end of the SAB- so another friend and I are going in together on an order to make $150..... Oh I still have not used the stuff I got last time- this kills me supporting my friend....... I guess I should take some time and make something with the SU stuff I already have.

Darlene- we got a few flurries- big fluffy ones- coated the ground, but it has all melted already- Wow- it is late to be getting snow...... What an interesting winter we have had- lots of late snow and it was warm in Nov and now freezing in March.

I hope everyone feels better soon- I just decided to take a muscle relaxant and put a patch on my back- I feel like I am about 120 today- ache all over! I am going to take it easy, and put something in the crock pot for sinner- Pineapple Chicken- recipe off of Pintrest : ) My husband has a sweet tooth, and he is missing me buying candy, cookies, etc...... I made a pie on pie day- that was gone in no time!

Off to try to get something done. I will pop back in.
Shelly

Hi girls I am still here - cooling down here now.... especially overnight - we actually have to have to have the duvet on.

Shelly, I hope you were not referring to your DH when you said you were going to put a meal in the crockpot for sinner...............

Shelly, hope you start feeling better soon too!! What's going on with all the allergies/sickness around here!!!!

Maxine, guess y'all are getting ready for cooler weather now! We go into summer here and you go into winter!

Has anyone done or checked into this BlogLovin thing that I keep seeing (that takes the place of Google Reader)? Just wondering.............

In fact, we may not even plant a garden this year!!!!!!! I'm so sad about that but I have plenty of stuff canned from last year except for green beans, so we may just do without this year. It's suppose to be extremely dry again and hot - so that's not good for a garden.

Off to do a little commenting and then maybe try to tackle another card or two.

Lynn
Thanks Lynn. The nose is running like a faucet! I hate this stage of whatever this is. The reason why I always buy Lotion tissues. We even had them start buying lotion tissues at the office instead of just plain ones.

Sometimes it takes me awhile to get a card done too. Gotta pick out paper and embellishments, layout and colors. Can't wait to see yours.

Thanks for sending the e-mail about TE. I had received it too because I also subscribe, but I hadn't even looked at it. I need to check out all the different ways to photo my cards. I'm never happy with how mine come out.

We're only in the low 70's today with lots of wind, so it's a bit chilly out. We're supposed to get rain tomorrow and Saturday. Ugh!

I have about 10 ladies coming over tomorrow afternoon to get creative, so I need to pick up a bit : ) They will not care if I don't, but I feel I should..... Then, tomorrow night my friend has a SU workshop for the end of the SAB- so another friend and I are going in together on an order to make $150..... Oh I still have not used the stuff I got last time- this kills me supporting my friend....... I guess I should take some time and make something with the SU stuff I already have.

Darlene- we got a few flurries- big fluffy ones- coated the ground, but it has all melted already- Wow- it is late to be getting snow...... What an interesting winter we have had- lots of late snow and it was warm in Nov and now freezing in March.

I hope everyone feels better soon- I just decided to take a muscle relaxant and put a patch on my back- I feel like I am about 120 today- ache all over! I am going to take it easy, and put something in the crock pot for sinner- Pineapple Chicken- recipe off of Pintrest : ) My husband has a sweet tooth, and he is missing me buying candy, cookies, etc...... I made a pie on pie day- that was gone in no time!

Off to try to get something done. I will pop back in.
Shelly
Sorry about the congestion. I did use my Nasonex this morning. Keeps my sinuses open and draining. Hope you feel better.

Hope you have a fun time stamping tomorrow.

Yummy, dinner sounds good. I had the last of my leftover chicken enchilladas. They still tasted yummy.

Maxine, guess y'all are getting ready for cooler weather now! We go into summer here and you go into winter!

Has anyone done or checked into this BlogLovin thing that I keep seeing (that takes the place of Google Reader)? Just wondering.............

Lynn
Nope. I haven't the slightest idea how this is going to work and what I'm going to do.

I went to Netvib because it had a great recommendation - what a shambles as far as I was concerned - some potentially good instructions, but ......... the overall site was so involved I ended up with glazed eyes and backed away!!

Paige!

Hope you're having a fantastic day. I don't know why since I've had this card ready for at least a week, I didn't get it in the mail to be there on time.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! I went with DH today for a medical appt out of town and we were able to spend some time with our DD and DGD - so some snuggle time was had! My two sons called and wished me a happy birthday today (and they were so proud of themselves that they remembered!) so it was a great day!

I have some cards to make for DTs and I sure wish i could get ahead on those and do some just for fun stamping - we'll see.


Hope everyone has a terrific weekend.

Glad that you were able to spend some time with family on your special day.

I went to a baby shower last night for a girl from church and had a really nice time with all the ladies that were there. The hostess had such a great spread of food - Italian with Zita pasta and lasagna, salad and fruit. The mom-to-be got a ton of lovely things for her little girl. We were sad to hear that they have bought a house and will be moving soon and won't be in our Ward anymore. But we are happy for them that they'll be able to start their family in a really nice place. She showed me photos of the house and it's so pretty for them.

I did talk to my GF again that wants to come stamp with me. We're going to try sometime either a week night or a Saturday in April. There's a lot going on right now with Easter coming up soon.

Good morning Stamp Addicts!

Yesterday was a busy day. Took Casper to the vet to get his booster shot and it took 2 hours! They do lost cost shots, but you can't make an appointment, so you go and sit and wait.

I had to meet the window guy here after that and get the estimate reworked for the bank. Now to get the slab estimate and I'll be all ready.

Had to get some groceries, so I went to Whole Foods this time and used my 3 GC's that I had purchased awhile back when my DGD was doing her fundraising. Only had to spent $9.

Took some time out and cleaned out my freezers. I want to defrost the chest on and need to clean out the upright of stuff I'm not going to use and move all the items from the chest to it so I can defrost it.

Worked a little bit on a card, but need to get my PSC card done tonight.

I have a meeting to go to at 9 this morning, then church. No dinner plans today, but I took a whole chicken out of the freezer to put in the crock pot before going off to church. That'll keep me going for most of the week.
