Sounds like a nice outing. There is a Farmers' Market every Wednesday across the street from the Kroger's near me, but I don't usually stop by since it's always late in the day and I figure that all the good stuff is gone by then.

Will you know what to do with yourself? LOL If it weren't for the edges of Isaac moving in this weekend, I'd gladly hold off until Monday to go shopping. Well, that and the cats are completely out of food.

Saturday sounds like a fun day either way you go. I'd love to hit a BIG farmer's market. We're lucky to get 3 vendors at ours. I wish we could do it any other day but Sunday afternoon. But I know Saturday's would compete with the bigger one in Mt. View. We keep hoping we'll get the 'after church' people since there are 3 busy churches in our little community of just under 700 people.

No... these are for the big conference I go to in October. For the cost of my conference fee (which I pay anyway) I can enter as many of their different themed categories as I want. They range from short story to poetry to some non-fiction. Each category carries a first/ second/ third cash prize - some bigger than others depending on how much money the category chairs (usually independent writing groups/ organizations) want to put up. There are 21 categories. If I bypass the poetry that leaves me with 16 opportunities to pad my bank account. I managed 6 last night and am looking at old pieces this morning to see if anything else fits any of the remaining categories. They have to be postmarked by tomorrow but with Isaac moving in, I'm pretty sure I won't get out of my driveway tomorrow.

That's fabulous that there is $$ involved. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that you come out a big winner.

morning all....I have chores to do around the house. I did get the grocery shopping done yesterday. I have some errands to run....which is normal! I think there might be a post office run in there too.

Having dinner with cousin while she is in town. That will be fun to see her again.

We had a small farmers market in Washburn, but I could always get home made jelly and it was only open from 8 - noon so I usually got some thing yummy too

I have never been to this one, but Sue says there are people with jewelry, and pottery people too along with other vendors... I guess we will wait and see if it rains... though I would not mind walking with an umbrella if it is a gentle rain

Good Morning ladies, I am way off schedule today, I sat up reading super later... My mind just would not wind down...
I guess it is a good thing I do not have anything scheduled today

We are expecting temps in the 90's again, So I imagine I will stay inside as much as I can .

I scanned in a couple of 8 x 8 pages I did of Faith, maybe I will up date my blog, that should make me smile

Oh I need to re scan then, I added some thing late last night : )

Looks like they will start aerial spraying tonight. They will spray tonight and tomorrow night. We will see the planes up about 8pm....checking out the flying pattern and get a feel for the water towers. Then they will start the spraying about 9pm and go until 2am.

I have to work on school for the kids, iQuest plans for September and October, and TONS of stuff for the cruise. Today, I'm working on iQuest plans. Those have to come first. School is already done, so I'm free to get on that.


Have a great time with Sue on Saturday!

Thankfully, Isaac's outer bands are here and giving us some rain. I'll spend the day in the house working on the plans. I'm SO excited to be home right now. I need it so badly.




I'm sending Mark to the store.

Ok ladies - what do I do??

Every year for the last 12 years, my Gf's and I haven gotten together several times a year. We are supposed to get together this October - which is one of our "set" gatherings. Well, no one has spoken about it, and I haven't heard from them at all.

So, the weekend prior to that is a CKU here in Ft Worth. I am only 30 minutes away, so I don't have to get a hotel room. It is 3 days - $ 295. DH said for me to go and not even think of my Gf's. It looks fun. So, do I go? Do I stay home the next week - and do stuff at home? I really want to be with PEOPLE! I have no friends anymore.

Dh said if the girls actually want to do something I could do both, BUT I can only have the thur/fri off 1 time.

What do I do? I forwarded the CKU info to my BFF - who didn't even acknowledge me until my 3rd inquiry! She said she would be out of town that weekend.

of course now the tears will not stop...
JMO, but I think it was a blessing that you didn't notice the date. Perhaps God helped you 'forget' for just a bit. Please don't feel extra sad because you didn't remember; heaven is eternal, there are no dates up there.

Keep the menu easy, no need to impress any one... maybe some salads or dishes made ahead and grill some meat... simple is good ... Enjoy your company

Good to hear that the plans for the house are all caught up and on track...
It sounds like you have a great building company

And isn't it some thing about the chain stores being different in some areas... Here it used to be Wed - Tues... I forgot about it being Labor day weekend, so maybe that has something to do with this Ad...
I do plan on getting the flu shot. It has helped me stay much healthier in the past few years. How about you?

Well, as of right now I have not heard from Liz if she is planning on making a dinner or two or from Marda about just when & how long they are staying. I guess I'm feeling crabbing but it would be nice to know. Bud says for me to not plan anything & just assume that they are only sleeping here. Y'all know I can't do that but we have things to do and it would help to plan around them.

We saw the house today. We just love Dave, he is so on top of things. He is going to try to get us workers this weekend but who knows? All wiring is back in. The way they cut it and what they didn't take makes me think they were scared off & didn't finish the job.

well I would try to approach my friends just to double check on "if" they are planning to follow thru with this date as planned... I would mention there is some thing you want to do the week end prior to that but it could mean you not getting away that weekend... just get the feel of things... If some of them are not / can not go then I say go to CKU : ) would any of them enjoy CKU ?
passing up CKU would definitely be a hard thing to pass up, just as not going with your friends would be

What do I do? I forwarded the CKU info to my BFF - who didn't even acknowledge me until my 3rd inquiry! She said she would be out of town that weekend.

good luck my wish would be that you could do both, but what ever you decide, simply enjoy yourself... sounds like a time away is just what you need

Would they be interested in going as well? Let them know what you will be doing & say that you would love them to come along. If they have no interest in going let them know that you will be available for the 'get together' on another weekend. Enjoy yourself, it sounds like you need the break.

1 of them has already said no. I don't think the other 2 would, as the other isn't. Usually with those 3 - they all have to do the same thing together

Thanks Dody...and as I talked about this with Sue we both rememberd that daddy's death was expected, I knew in my heart that seeing him alive again was a very small chance ... and tho I loved him dearly he was not the "daily constant " Wally was in my life for 40 years ...
Daddy loved me, spoiled me and was proud of me... he was a definite plus in my life..
He was mt hero , but we lived apart the majority of my life...

So I can be relieved that not dwelling on the day or days is alright...
I need to remember , there is no wrong way to grief...
and if I try to remember them instead of missing them it will be easier to live each day ...

thanks so much ...and yes God did bring me a blessing, with everything else going on in my life He gave me a day of sunshine, and time to rest and just be me... God is so Good...

Dody I think we both said the same thing but as always you do it so well with so many less words...

glad to see we are still ALIKE in most respects...

Dody I do understand your feelings about your expected company... I would want to have food planned and maybe an outing or two as well...just knowing the days would be helpful...

but I guess some times we just have to wing it... maybe if you need to go get food or be some where that will ring a bell that "oh I guess we should have let them know when we were coming "
if not, hey you will still be Dody and a great hostess I am sure ...

Dody....I agree with Soni. I would want to know so that I could plan (food and length of time). But, since they haven't gotten that info to you....just wing it! You will be fine! Hey, this is how we end up with entertaining around here! We find out either the day before...or the day of....when the family will be here. Sometimes we can change our plans...other times we can't. Like this past March when we found out that my MIL was coming to visit for a few days. Jack couldn't change his plans to be out of town. Oh well...such is life! I think it's weird not to let people know...but, that's how I was brought up.

Karen...I agree with Soni and Dody. Approach the others about it one more time. If no answer...or they don't want to go. Go to CKU!!! It's not in our area often. Go...enjoy.....namely since DH doesn't have a problem with it. Yes, I'm sure you will make some new friends. Remember...you can come and stamp with Sue and I (plus our group) once a month.

you are very sweet, Soni. Thing is I am not on my own home turf, so to speak. I don't have the full pantry or freezer here that I normally would. My large bowls & pans are still packed. We might have to run to Publix to get food as the weekend goes. Marda does not cook at all, she is a career woman so she truely doesn't understand. Liz on the other hand.....

lol, I'll let y'all know how it goes.

well you can only do with what you have to work with... : )

I say enjoying this weekend is more important than worrying about it... yep I know, " did Soni just say that ? " lol

what are your expected temps this week end?? was wondering if sitting around the pool and enjoying it could be a good thing ?

but please let us know how it all turns out...


oh and from a post earlier... yes I will be planning on getting my flu shot : )

I think that sounds like a great plan Karen. If they aren't interested, then make your own plans and go and have fun - Yes! Meet new people.

Well, as of right now I have not heard from Liz if she is planning on making a dinner or two or from Marda about just when & how long they are staying. I guess I'm feeling crabbing but it would be nice to know. Bud says for me to not plan anything & just assume that they are only sleeping here. Y'all know I can't do that but we have things to do and it would help to plan around them.

We saw the house today. We just love Dave, he is so on top of things. He is going to try to get us workers this weekend but who knows? All wiring is back in. The way they cut it and what they didn't take makes me think they were scared off & didn't finish the job.
I'm sorry that they have not been more forthcoming with their plans. Can you send them an e-mail? Tell them that you are looking forward to their visit and hope to spend time with them, but that you have some things that you need to do and hope that you can work around their plans. Be up front with them before they come so neither group is surprised, hurt, or disappointed if things don't go the way they want them to.

I was also brought up to make plans in advance. I really do not care for people who just "drop by." For one thing, you never know what sort of "dress" I'll be in. When I get home at night after I do my workout and shower, I get in my jammies, so if someone drops by, depending on who it is, they might not get in my house.
