Yes, Maggie..I have that same thing! Your Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake sounds yummy....is it a recipe of yours or a box mix? Would like to know. I use to do one that used a box mix...the recipe was on the box. But, when I went to use it....they changed the box! What's with that? Hey...it only been....hmmmm...how many years now since I made it last? I guess when I was first teaching....okay...not exactly like day before yesterday! But, it seems like it sometimes!

Dody...good for you on the taking down...and "to be" sorted. I need to make some cards....thank you type. But, I guess I'll be doing that during all the bowl games. We are going to a friends house for New Year's. They are fixing dinner....pork tenderloin.....yum! I told her that we would bring dessert. But, I didn't have time to bake anything....we had errands to run. So, we bought an apple pie and some vanilla ice cream.

Well, it's not a recipe of mine, but not a box mix. I think I got it off of All Recipes.

It has been a nice day Faith and Tammy and I all napped, Krista and kids came to visit, now they are off for supper . Tammy is running an errand and picking up Brooke , yippee they are staying here ...

I think K & K and kids are coming back to play games and hang out ...

I really have a lot to get done for tomorrow, but oh well I will never turn down time with my family

Faith is watching tv, she is still in her jammies I want to give her a bath and freshen her up in a bit oh and Daisy is all fresh and clean and smells so much better

Easy day, no fuss on food or any thing ...great way to end the year ...
My prayer for the New Year is Happiness to be in more places and in a much deeper degree... Health to be taken care of and life to be on track for all I know and love and going in a forward direction... For Gods love to be felt by all
If I am not back before midnight...just know I love you all and I say thank you for all the goodness we share and all we do for each other... I think God smiles at all of us, most of the time

Happy New Year to all of my very special friends

It is noisy here but noise of happy kids playing games... Tammy and Krista talking, Faith is sooo tired but has not given in yet...
she is now in the bed room with Mickey on the computer ~ that should work

this is very different, I have spent the past several years sitting here alone...even before Wally would be asleep early...

Aunt Tammy brought home sparkling drink for the kids, hats and horns and fun stuff

It's a bit noisy here too, but it's the big kids across the street shooting off fireworks and firecrackers which are illegal in the city limits.

Laundry is almost done and the closet is all organized. I also e-mailed the guy who did the table leaf for me about making me some shelves in my bedroom and in my little storage room.

I was in bed by 8 p.m. LOL My back just was not giving up. I set the Live From Lincoln Center to record then turned out the lights. Back isn't as sore this morning as my shoulders. I imagine that's from the punching bag LOL I'm just going to take it easy today. Enjoy the parade and get some organizing done.

I pulled lobster tails out of the freezer for supper. We get 4-6oz tails from our local grocery at Valentine's for about $6-$7 a piece. I budget for it every year so I can put several in the freezer for the year. If you add them to a meal at places like Ruby Tuesdays' they are $15. So we stay home and enjoy them

Kelly, I didn't know seafood would last that long in the freezer, good to know!

Maggie, how is your DD's house coming along? I am waiting to hear how you/they like it.

Soni, cuddles & snuggles for Faith. They grow up way too fast!

I worked upstairs this morning. I was able to empty 3 of the 66 gal size Sterlites, 1 of the next bigger size Sterlite, the HUGE one that we kept the big Christmas tree in and a sweater size one. I can fit it all in the closet but it sure isn't pretty in there!!! Next up is painting the door for my desk & getting a counter height chair for there. What do y'all sit on when you craft? When we were in Ga I found the cutest metal butterflies, gecko, and geckos with sunglasses. They were in 3 different stores~ butterflies at HL and the geckos at 2 different furnture stores but the colors all will look great in the kids guest room & work well with my Key West theme. I am very happy!!! Now I want to get a chalk board for in there, paint the walls & that room is done. I might paint some of my Home Interior shelves a bright color to go with too. Best of all I was able to do that room up fairly reasonable.....read cheap!

I'm with you there. I'm happy when "being in my size" is in my closet.

Having issues with PC here at home. Locking up all the time. Might be because it's 8yrs old. Have to de-frag it.

Been reading at work, but don't have time to post. Everytime it slows down and I think I can start a post or reply, the phones get busy.

So, know that I am reading and keeping up on the news, just not able to post. For some weird reason it's working just great right now. But normally when I get home from work around 9:00pm it locks up on me.

Off to see what's new in the Quacker pond.

Oh Suzy, I love those scraves. I may need to find a close by source for that yarn. Would make some cute gifts.

I worked yesterday and didn't get home until after 9:00pm. Then got a call at 9:30 from Cody asking if I could watch Addison so he and girlfriend could go to a party. Couldn't turn that down. Was only at their house about 10min - in fact Cody hadn't even left yet, when Davina called me for a ride home from the bar. She wasn't feeling well, tummy issues, and didn't want to stay there - wanted the privacy of her own bathroom. So, bundled up Addison and went to get Davina. Got home from the trip about 10:30. Stayed at Davina's for about 30 minutes and then came home. Went straight to bed. Didn't sleep all that well, but managed to hold off the girls' potty time until about 7:30am. Have been sorting and organizing ever since. Got a hunk of ham out of the freezer, going to put that into the oven and make some Lipton noodles - that's supper. TV has been on. Guess I should put the Rose Bowl game on - Wisconsin is playing in it.

Sorting through all my craft supplies - I would like to eliminate about 50% of the stuff. Need to get the money to put toward replacing my roof. House insurance is going to be cancelled if roof isn't replaced with 1yr. The insurance company must think every person has a money tree growing in the backyard. It's going to cost me anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000 to roof my house. Hope to get a nice tax refund to add to the roof fund too. Maybe if I can come up with half the money, the bank will see fit to loan me the remainder. One can always hope anyway.

I am not sure what or why but I started saving bottle caps for my fairy garden. LOL, I am looking for 'found' items as I go along. Maybe I'll line a path with them or use them as pavers for her patio or make them the path. See...this is going to be fun.

I pulled lobster tails out of the freezer for supper. We get 4-6oz tails from our local grocery at Valentine's for about $6-$7 a piece. I budget for it every year so I can put several in the freezer for the year. If you add them to a meal at places like Ruby Tuesdays' they are $15. So we stay home and enjoy them
It takes time to work out that soreness when you start a new program.

I have never been able to get to like lobster. I do love crab though and had Crab and Shrimp Quesadillas the other day when we went out for dinner. They were so yummy. I won't eat the fake crab - tastes like flavored water.

Maggie, how is your DD's house coming along? I am waiting to hear how you/they like it.

Soni, cuddles & snuggles for Faith. They grow up way too fast!
Their house is great. I know there are still a few things that they'd like to do, but now it's a waiting for more $$ to do them. I know she'd love to have a new kitchen, but that would take at least $10,000 and they don't have that kind of money right now. Someday she'll have it like she wants it. Just like me; I had to wait about 30 years before I got me dream kitchen. I'll have to upload my photos and post some to show you what it's like right now.

When we were in Ga I found the cutest metal butterflies, gecko, and geckos with sunglasses. They were in 3 different stores~ butterflies at HL and the geckos at 2 different furnture stores but the colors all will look great in the kids guest room & work well with my Key West theme. I am very happy!!! Now I want to get a chalk board for in there, paint the walls & that room is done. I might paint some of my Home Interior shelves a bright color to go with too. Best of all I was able to do that room up fairly reasonable.....read cheap!
Sounds like a very productive day for you.

I e-mailed the guy from church who redid my table leaf to see if I could get him to make me some wall shelves for books in my bedroom and food storage in the small room. That might help the space issue. If I can get the small room organized, I might be able to put a futon in there for when the kids come over. I'm also considering a small loveseat sofa bed for out here in my computer room.

Good evening Quackers.

Sue, good luck with selling stuff for your roof. I would think that the bank would give you a loan or maybe the roofing company will finance it to get your business. Check around and see when you can get the best deal.

Dody, your fairy garden is going to be so sweet and special.

I had a nice time at sis's house. We exchanged gifts. I gave her a new lighthouse calendar and a lighthouse wind chime that I got up at Old Town Spring when we went at Thanksgiving. We were in the store together, but she was looking at something else and I was able to get it without her noticing me. She collects lighthouses so I thought those would be perfect for her.

We had lots of food, but I really started getting tired about 6:30 and finally left at 7. They were playing some games. I'm really glad that I did leave early (must have been inspiration). Just about 10 minutes after I got home, I got a phone call from my GF that moved to Arkansas a couple of years ago. We do try to keep in touch, but I hadn't talked to her for awhile. We're going to try to plan for me to go visit her maybe in the Spring for a long weekend. It was so good to talk to her and I would have missed her call if I had stayed later at my sis's.

2013...hardly seems possible but here it is!

Maggie, I would love to see pictures when you get around to it. Fixing any house the way you want it does take time as well as money. I am one of those people who need to decorate step by step. I can't buy everything at once. I need to see how each piece fits before I add to it.

Soni, sounds like you've been a busy girl. Vistors are such a blessing! Esp those wee little ones and the big sister
