Hey V, I'm about halfway through the second Reacher novel. I have this one in paperback, but when I'm ready for the next one, I'm going to see if I can get the eBook from the library. I made a list, you gave me the 4th one, so I will have that ready. LOL

I passed the first one on to BFF to see if she likes them.

That's the thing - I don't know how it's correctly pronounced. I've only dealt with this guy through email. And I think it's safe to assume it's a guy because there's "Jr." after the last name.

Oh dear.

My former co-worker's teenage daughter posted a status update on FB:
"I don't know why I'm in love with the name Bob. (: "


I'm thinking (and hoping) she's still too young to understand the acronym.

I got up at 9 this morning and went to the 10 a.m. WW meeting. Did I tell you I skipped yesterday? I wasn't quite where I wanted to be. Today I was. So I weighed in free for the month. Yay!

Then I had an 11 a.m. hair appt., cut and color, very convenient, in the same little corner of shops.

I had been reading while the color was on, then had to put it down. And my head was nodding. LOL

Well, I'd better get to sleep. ODS and I are heading out to the DC area tomorrow to go clarinet shopping. There's a store off the Beltway that his band teacher has described as a "wonderful, magical place full of all sorts of instruments". Oh joy. Seriously, though, they should have a good selection of clarinets for him to "test drive" so he can choose the one he feels is best for him. (The local - and by local I mean 25 miles away - instrument store had only one for him to try, and he was getting a buzzing sound on several of the notes. Not good. )

I'm not looking forward to I-66 and the Beltway. But the store itself should be pretty neat.

I've made one card completely so far, and partials of others. And I have 8 Christmas cards almost done. One is done. The other 7 just need to be put together. They're all the same.

Attempting to get my room transformed. Yep. We made the decision to turn the guest room into my art/craft room.

Not enough room for all the guests (grin) but plenty of room for art materials!

And hubby and I have "built" one of those large craft tables like the one from Pottery Barn Bedford Project Table Set | Pottery Barn
Check out the price. Ours cost a whole lot less and I plan to make mine look vintage! as white is a bit harsh.

I'd love to take the carpet out of the room--it's mauve for carp sake! But for now, it will do and goat alone knows what is under it.

So, off to the coal--er--organization mines.

Good morning
Hoping to get a few house chores done before getting ready for work. Full shift today. At least it will be busy (well it's always busy with work but I like busy with people more).

You'll have to catch up. His "girlfriend" has been back and he's gotten more screen time.

Very nice!! I think storing things under the ends of tables is a great idea even if it's not built in. The far end of my stamping room has stuff like that under it. I'd prefer it was all stamping stuff, but I need to clear out some other areas first, to make that happen.

Yay for "above freezing." You know, even if your weight isn't holding steady, you are pretty active and eating healthier. So keep that in mind at least!

I got up at 9:30 when DH popped suddenly out of bed. He'd heard Phantom whimpering. So we came down, managed to get him up eventually, I tossed all his bedding in the machine and went back to bed. It was good to sleep til noon after so many nights of bad sleeping. Now DH is napping....

I'm doing laundry now myself. The never-ending chore. I sure do a lot more these days with doggie bedding, but that's ok.

DH and I went out for dinner and used my first birthday coupon for a free entree up to 19.99. My little filet was 20.99 but his ribs were 19.99 so they took that off. I had a salad and a baked potato with it. Salad had dressing on the side and potato had butter on the side. I didn't use much of either. I told him I wanted to space out my special meals. Maybe I can avoid a weight gain this month.

So Marge, have the builders (or siders?) been properly chastised for their disregard of property?

How'd that go?

Yay! Sharks win! We were up 4-2 so the other team pulled their goalie with about two minutes left, and we scored an empty netter. Yay!

Bwa ha ha ha ha

Okay so I'm trying to see what towns are real or fictional in Montana in this novel.

So I enter the first two, they're real. But google maps decides the third one is in Australia.

The FUNNY part is when it says "Kayak across the Pacific Ocean" and then mileage.

HAHAHAHAHA

WOO HOO!

My very first official post with the Crafter's Companion team went live this morning!

You can see the official design team post here:
Crafter's Companion Official Blog Page

My posts are scheduled weekly on Sundays.

The launch of the Strawberry Kisses line of stamps was not my typical style -- so I was challenged -- but I think it turned out cute!

Next week I get to use the new ArtKure line (scenic English countryside). That was more up my alley and I have it ready to go already -- I did a decorated box but can't show you yet!

NO......don't get me started -- the people who thought we must spend $2 million on new siding believe the contractor can do no wrong.

We have a meeting at 4:30 today because the first batch of houses is done. The start batches 2, 3, and 4 next week (bringing in extra crews). The first batch went slower because it was the prototype.

Is everyone sleeping in?

I went to WW (was up - grrrrrrrr, I walked a ton this week but guess I must be eating too much).

I ran to the grocery store and back. Got some milk, chicken, bananas, cereal, sweet potatoes, generally healthy stuff.

Not enough room for all the guests (grin) but plenty of room for art materials!

And hubby and I have "built" one of those large craft tables like the one from Pottery Barn Bedford Project Table Set | Pottery Barn
Check out the price. Ours cost a whole lot less and I plan to make mine look vintage! as white is a bit harsh.

I'd love to take the carpet out of the room--it's mauve for carp sake! But for now, it will do and goat alone knows what is under it.

So, off to the coal--er--organization mines.

Beautiful table, and how exciting to get a craft room!

Well, we'd looked online at several of the different models so we had an idea of what to expect money-wise. The price they gave us on the clarinet itself was a lot lower than most places online showed. The new mouthpiece was the only element of momentary sticker shock but the new ligature was less expensive than I was guessing.

It's a Buffet clarinet. I had been pronouncing that in my head in English instead of French, and suggested that ODS name it Jimmy. (ha ha - Jimmy Buffet - yeah, I know that's missing a t) But since he was used to hearing it in French, he didn't put those two together and he asked, "because it cost a fortune?" bwaaa ha ha ha ha (Jimmy Fortune - of the Statler Brothers)

No, it didn't really cost a fortune.

ODS finally decided to name it Phoebe. (Kudos to Wrose if she figures that one out - *teasing grin*)
