Joyce, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you are better soon!

Time is just flying by. I can't believe it's almost the middle of July already! WOW!

Hoping to get some cards made over the weekend. We shall see what time allows.

I'm putting Chey on some new anti-anxiety meds. It's called Composure. Anyone ever hear of it? She is having some separation anxiety. Hopefully she won't have to be on this long. 60 pills are $26, but I need to look at dosing instructions yet. It's always something isn't it!

I like it Dawn, very pretty

I have been asked to make a card for a lady in town here that will be 100 on Monday.
My head is swimming with ideas, but I can't stamp. I tried and I either ge ta jolt of pain or if I use my left I get those lines from the edge of the rubber

Clint said he would help me and we can do something with the build a blossom

Hi Joyce long time no see!!! Pop in anytime!

HI Girls!

i stayed home a lil longer today to catch our laundry up and chores etc etc, and for a bit of a breather
then headed over to Moms. the repairs may run into next week now as the wall he is taking down, he found a pipe in! so that pipe must be rerouted before the wall comes down.

it has been stormy, but in between heavy parts we get a nice steady rain, which we were in need of. i really really wish i had had a roof built to the deck that summer, cause i could be sitting out there now in a nice swing enjoying it, lol................oh well.....

not much new going on.

Hi all,

I didn't realise that I have been MIA for so long. I haven't been getting emails to say that there were posts. Must work out why.
We have had all sorts of goings on here. The new gearbox in the truck dies and Browny threw his hands in the air, threw a tanty and left me to sort it out. Which I did, and I will say to our advantage. The truck was off the road for a week, which was a drama, but we have a new, better sort of gearbox. We have had a big talk about the way Browny does things and the decisions he makes and he has conceded that perhaps, he has not been making the right ones (you think????) and I now am making major decision - with his input. Basically the 'bad cop' will be doing things her way and the 'good cop' will just have to suck it up. No more complaining about how things are - just damn well fix it - objectively, not emotionally...... rant over!
Bug has been to the snow and is now back at school. He had a great time. It was the best snow they have had for years. He went to Perisher is you want to see where he was. About 12 hours down south from here.
We went home to Mum and Dad's for a few days in the holidays as well. Peta was there with the kids, so we had fun. Went to visit my Nana, who is 96 in her nursing home. She has a bit of dementia, but knows who Bug is - even though she didn't beleive how much he had grown - and was able to whinge about having to stay there while we were able to leave. She is just like a naughty child and will undoubtably live for quite a few more years. She is doing Dad's head in unfortunately as he is the eldest. My Mumma (Mum's mother) is in hospital so we visited her on the way home. Basically she got a kidney infection and got really sick with it. The problem was that it was on its way out when they found out, so she is recovering quite slowly - she is 89. She has fluid problems anyway, but with this her legs have swelled incredibly and they are leaking. The real problem is if the fluid hangs around and gets near her heart. My Aunt is making things worse by telling Mum things like there are ulcers on her legs and other 'what ifs' that seem to be real in her mind. I had to get the full story from the nursing staff, check her out myself and tell Mum the real story. Poor Mum was preparing for Mumma to be leaving us, when, although she is quite sick and weak, I really don't think is on the cards at the moment. She is going into respite instead of staying in her little unit (which is part of the nursing home complex) when she gets out of hospital, and we are thinking that she may decide to stay there which will involve some stuff for us all to do. I am very blessed to still have both my Grandmothers alive at the ripe old age of 45!
Well, I have managed to do hardly any housework this week, so I best go and get it done before cooking lessons with 'Jaimie' this afternoon.

morning all.....

Another rainy day here. I have to go grocery shopping and do some housework. And then tackle the ironing.....

Bug is supposed to play soccer this afternoon, but I am thinking that it will be too wet as we have had a lot of rain in the last few days. The rain guage is, unfortunately sitting in the outdoor area as I washed the slime out of it and was too lazy to walk up the steps in the yard to put it back in its spot!

Tomorrow I am going to this with a firend. Love Vintage

Anyways, off to tackle the day...

ok, so, i have been sitting on a secret for a couple wks now and if i dont tell you girls, i will burst!

our ann is tues, and, for the first time EVER, i have a surpise and special gift for him.....AND he has no clue what so ever.....also a first!

he is absolutely the worst to buy for because he always snoops and is so nosey he always finds out and spoils it!

NOT this year, LOL

i bought him a new wedding ring, and it is safely hidden where i know he wont look i plan to give it to him on our lunch date

his original one has been snagged, mangled, resized and fixed so many times, it is barely wearable......... the new one is much sturdier, and IMO more sexier,

sooooo.....cross your fingers that i pull this off!!!

I'm doing okay - taking one day at a time and trying to work through the stacks of boxes. Decided that the boxes don't all have to be unpacked immediately. I'm going to take my time and sort through my stash of stuff. Rethinking how much is actually worth keeping.

Work schedule really wears me out. So today is my one-day weekend. Got my laundry going, have an errand to run later and going to take myself out for supper - alone. I got a birthday certificate from a local restaurant for $20 off and I'm going to use it. I figure if I go close to when they open at 5:00, it won't be so bad to eat alone. I'll be eating with the senior citizens who go early to avoid the crowds. have to work tomorrow, so want to be home to relax this evening and get a good night's sleep. too many "bugs" going around and I don't want a visit from any of them.

We got some rain last night, don't know how much, but it's the first I've seen at my house since before May 26th.

off to catch up on the news ...

Good Morning from Portland Oregon. It was quite a day getting here--maybe because it was Friday the 13th!

Glad to be here and will enjoy the downtown area today.

Holly, I love the ring. I agree...sexy! Very manly!

Sue, enjoy your dinner out. I think I am having a frozen pizza tonight.

Tomorrow I am staying home. I have no plans to go anywhere, and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about that. I think since I have moved I have only had one other day that I have not left the apartment, and I am sick of running around to stores and here and there. I am REALLY looking forward to staying home. I am getting my chores done today. I just have to clean the bathroom yet. I plan to make a breakfast bake for tomorrow, and then I need to finish my feminine bday cards for Barb's swap, and I have started cutting cardstock for my first set of Christmas cards for this year. WHEW!!! I need five sets of 12 cards this year. I offered to make some for Tom, but he said he isn't going to send any.

Barb, I cased your masculine bday card from stamp club for your swap. Mine has a polar bear on it though in the middle! I think it turned out cute. I also left out two layers.

Kerriann, I sure wish we could take some of your rain. We are so dry. They are saying severe drought. So many watering bans, and they are now concerned that the trees will really be affected. It's sad. Glad you checked in with us!

well, didn't run my errand and didn't go out for supper. So much for best laid plans. Just too wore out to go anywhere. Thinking an early bedtime for me tonight with having to work tomorrow.

Anyone gotten a look at the new SU holiday mini? I got a peek and I've got a wish list started though I don't know why. I haven't touched ink/paper/stamps since starting back to work in February. But if I get new stamps, they won't spoil will they?

Hi Girls,

Sue, it is good to see ya! sometimes lunch/dinner alone is so nice, its good to be "lost in a sea of faces" sometimes!
i agree about unpacking one box at a time and sorting it out as you do, best way to do it

we went to see SnowWhite and the Huntsman....very good, tom we will see Men In Black 3.............

i may get inky in the morning, if i can get my mojo organized, LOL.........
i have gotten some "new to me" Christmas sets, so maybe i will get them out and see about starting cards and gift tags etc....... i need to think about this yrs handmade gifts as well, maybe get a head on those too.......

the yr has really been flying by!

Laurie--your polar bear card sounds cute!

Portland is a great city--I am sure enjoying exploring the city while Bec is at the convention--we leave tomorrow to head to the Gorge Area.

Glad you are enjoying your trip Barb! I'm sure it's cooler there than it is here. 93 degrees at 10:30am. YIKES!

Not too much going on here other than work. It's too hot and humid for me and Cheyenne to be outside too much.

I started my second set of cards for Barb's swap last night. It's a case of card here on SCS. I'm not changing it up much, just different colors and different ribbon. I'm making extras trying to get a supply done for OWH as they have a waiting list of 20 right now.

Laurie--I still have my bag of cards to make for OWH. Maybe you and I and maybe Lora and Christine need to have a stamping party at my house to get them made?!

Barb, I'm game! Set up a time when you get back if you would like. It will be great to see you and Lora again! Christine stopped over one night last week to get her Stampin Up order. I had picked it up from Nancy's.

It' too hot to do anything! Today's my day off and I am moving slow - even with A/C, its warm in the house. Supposed to get to 102* today. No rain on radar either. They do say possible storms tonight, but they've missed the forecast so many times in the past month.

We need the rain SO badly. That little shower we had the other day did nothing but make it more humid out. I feel so bad for the farmers, and you know with so much of the Midwest in drought conditions, the price of food is going to go up!

Hi Girls,

I am up early (it's 6am, which is early for me!) as Mitch and I are going to Rockhampton which is about 7 hours away to look at a truck and talk to a man about a job. Mitch is going to look at the truck for me. A good frend of ours is the service manager at Mack in Rocky and knows the truck, but Browny is trying to get Mitchell involved int he business, so he is coming along to 'help'. The truck comes with a 5 year contract working for Cement Australia, taking cement powder in a large tanker trailer tothe mines and cement works. I meet the guy tomorrow to find out about the job and to see if it is all worthwhile. We are staying with my good friend Tricia who lives in Yeppoon. Google Maps
We will be home in the middle of th night tomorrow. Mitch is on night shift at the moment, so we don't have to rush home.
Made some cards yesterday for my stash. Nothing else exciting going on. Waiting for the heater int he bathroom to do it's job so that I can have a shower.....
