Sorry those people are not getting the house, but so glad that you don't have to move quite yet. It'll be nice if you can stay there until your house is ready.

That's ok. I knew what you meant.

That is one thing that worries me about my own home canning since I'm not an expert and haven't done it before which is why I want to cook up those tomatoes I canned into some sauce. Don't want them sitting on a shelf for too long.

I know a couple gals who go by Tootie, one is a Nancy and the other is a LaVerne.

Both were given the nickname by their fathers.

well yes but showing is a small thing compared to the $ you are saving : )


I hope the process of your home being built flows quickly and easily and you are all moved in there in good time... for now, enjoy the pool, and sun shine

speaking of books, I have five waiting on my table by my chair... I have most every thing I want pulled out, washed up if needed and ready to be priced...

I think I will either go sit and read and put my feet up, the stairs have my feet all swollen or I might walk to Kristas... yet at 96 degrees I may drive over

I was confused. I couldn't imagine saying bob 'volunteered' to work so I had to go look. I said if I remembered correctly, he was working Christmas.


There was one year I told him to work Christmas if he wanted. It was just the two of us and the relief captain had 3 or 4 little kids. Christmas was falling on the crew change day (Wed.) so he'd have only worked one day extra. But the guy's wife had already made plans to take the kids to her moms so he got to come home on time.

CeeCee becomes friends with her Aunt Tootie's maid and other eccentri older ladies and the things they do are soo funny. It takes place in the early 60's.

I can see this book being made into a movie. I can even picture the actresses playing some of the parts. I can see Queen Latifah as the maid.
That sounds like a good book. I checked it out on Amazon.. almost $13 for Kindle. I'll have to see if our library can get a print copy.

my 5 gal bucket was 1/2 full of tomatoes. I wound up with 1 gal zip bag. I need to tie those plants up tonight and water. Keep them maters comin'! I also found some pumpkin seed today so I'd like to get them started asap. Everything was pretty picked over so no green peppers but I found Basil and Cilantro.

My bad. Don't know why I thought you said he volunteered. That was confusing to me.

I try to get the free books on Kindle that sound interesting or ones that cost less than $3 if I really want to read it.

No, no. Of course not. However, they will probably be at our big family party (cousins and such), and I will do for them there (so that the cousins don't have to take that on), and we'll do for them for Christmas day. That's still a lot when you're talking 6 kids. That means that Caitlyn and Kenzie might not get as much. And, I'm quite sure that Becky will no more for my kids than she absolutely has to.

I saw that, too. I'll have to keep checking for it and grab it if it gets cheaper.

I'm working on finding crafts for iQuest. I've also looked through a number of songs. I'm so excited that I have a theme for the year.

I saw on face book a picture of using a hang up style shoe organizer for a small herb garden very cool less watering and nice close by planting ...

I love working with themes. I'm in charge of our JANO program for the writers group in January (Writing 50,000 words in January) I'm working on a theme so I can start making the goody bags (not the contents) for the after party in February and for the kick-off in December.

If I have a theme, I can run with just about anything. Thankfully, the good Lord spoke to me and told me what direction He wants us to go. We're doing Heroes of the Bible - one hero a month culminating in a musical of the same name in the spring. We can do a focal memory verse for each month along with that hero. Our kick-off event will be focused around an Olympic theme (I thought that was a good hero focus). I'm excited!!

That does sound like a good theme... and easy to spread out into various things. Have fun!

this is me working I think I'll probably do better after I go to bed with a pad and pen than I'm doing on the computer. I have gotten my creative blog post written for tomorrow and the pictures resized. I need to resize the pics from the conference so they'll be ready for the author blog.

just not into fiction tonight. It looks soooo nice outside but it's still really humid. I got the tomatoes and corn watered then called it a day out there.

Exactly. It's been fun planning so far. Hard to find activities to use for some of them, though.

Fortunately, we've had rain here each evening around 5 or 6 for the last few days. Helps me not have to water the garden. I'm quite sure that my garden likes it, too.

I might be wrong but I think Sue said she volunteered to work Christmas. Maybe that was where you got it?

Good morning Quackers. Got my blog updated last night with my latest PSC card. This is one of the ones that I submitted to the Designed to Color online magazine which was rejected as were all the cards that I submitted. It may get published in a book though. One of the girls on our PSC DT is creating a book that she hopes to publish. Her blog is Parables of a Crafter and after she saw it, she asked me to submit it to her challenge for this week. She's choosing 1 or 2 cards every week to put in the book.
