Bob and I have a challenge. The one of us who loses the most when he comes back in 3 weeks gets an extra $50. with my trip in April coming up, I could use that.
Yep....I think we can too! Thanks!

good morning!

Soni, that was a long visit! Did you enjoy it? I sure hope you slept in this morning.

Suzy, keep us updated on your walk. It sounds interesting.

Shell, what is Jaydin's book about? Did she draw pictures for each page? Years ago my girls had to write a book each year. I still have a few. That was before we had all of the cool tools we have now. I had to bind them real old school. LOL, I had to type them up for them too ...this was even before we had a computer in the house much less everyone having their own (multi ones now!!!) Well, that brought back some memories. We had some great teachers but I think I learned as much as the kids!

We're headed off to the Art Fest this morning. After I get the craft room cleaned up I'll post another pic on FB. Guess I can't call this craft room my cabana since I'll actually have one outside. I think it's sooo funny how the pool people call a little half bath outside a 'bath house'! righhhhhhht! oh, we are getting so excited!

Good Morning...

Dody, Amy was not here for a visit ~ she had a situation that was really troubling to her and needed some one to listen... so I listened I am her place to run away to when she needs a place she does not get a real day off so I am her place of quiet ...lol not that it is ever quiet when she is here

my visit was Lisa was good but an hour is not enough...the time that the groomer had open only allowed that...then I visited Phylis and 2 of her grown children the family that we just went to the service for...she just had a knee surgery 3 weeks ago anf I wanted to see how she was doing her daughter works at a nursery and gives me tips about flowers...so that was nice

It's real simple....the group that Deb works for does this every year. It's to get you moving more. So, you keep track of the miles you do a day...and turn the results in for the week. All the members for each team have a certain day to turn those numbers in. Then the lady in charge will post the results for each team. They call it Walk Across Texas because it's rather catchy...plus, when they give the miles....they are going from Hondo (office) and tell them which town they have made it to....trying to get to El Paso and back....I guess. I remember reference of El Paso one year. Anyway, I just send Deb my miles...and she turns it in. I get to count what I do around the house, bowling and anything else I do. So...I need a new battery for the pedometer. It kept acting up last year....so, it might have needed it then. There is a table that I googled...will have to look again for it. But, it gives you times you did something...and how many miles you went by doing that chore...like mopping, vacuum the carpet etc, bowling etc.

Suzy, that sounds pretty neat. Too bad I wasn't on your team today. We walked for over 3 hours at the Art Fest along. Do you get extra points for uphill?

We saw some pretty cool stuff but I shudder at the prices. So much of the art work popular now is photos on canvas or giclee, photos on canvas with paint over. Lovely but so pricey. I did pick up 2 big coffee mugs made of pottery.

It's about a royal family helping a town. It's short - a picture book - and I'm doing the illustrations (per her request). It's exciting because we can print them here at home, and she can make them for anyone she wishes to share with.




I'd love to hard bind one or two. She doesn't care, though. She just loves the fact that she's written a book. I typed it in for her and helped edit it. We worked on phrasing and order. She did really well with it, I think.

Sure you can! This is going to be a *craft* cabana ... the one outside is for a totally different purpose.


How fun!! I'm excited for you! I wish we had a shower/potty outside. I hate people coming through the house to go to the bathroom.

Deb has done some of those pictures on canvas....or something like that. It was a pretty cool technique. She showed me what she did while we were there Christmas.

could you put one in now? after having one in the rental house we saw how often it was used, most every dsy...even when we didn't swim we sat outside so much it came in handy. Plus no trailing pool water inside!

Can you ask her where she sent her pictures to be printed? We have 1 name but they are very pricey, like $400 for a 24x30 print on stretched canvas. Does she take orders???

If we had the money, yes, we could. We have the room, but not the money at the moment. I'd love to do it.

At my SIL's visitation, the funeral home made a beautiful wall hanging which was about 3' x 5' and it had her photo in the middle and then pictures all around it that were part of her life. Here's a photo of it.

Good morning Quackers. It was a busy day yesterday starting with having to be at a meeting at 9 a.m. Then came home and got ready for church. I was called into the Bishop's office after our meetings. He wanted to talk to me about changing my calling. I think I may have talked him into letting me stay as secretary and also being able to handle this new thing he wants me to do.

Last night I had to work on my cards for the DT's. I finished up the one for Pins and I really love the way it came out. I'm just about done with the one for PSC. Shouldn't take too much time tonight.

I have an RS project that I need to be working on. It's a history/journal of all that happened last year in Relief Society. I had the pictures printed off, but haven't had the time to do it. Hopefully I'll get that worked on this week.

I see, that money thing sure gets in our way, doesn't it? We are thinking about only paying cash for part now and taking out a small loan for the rest so we can get what we really want. Since this is our forever house...it's now or never. The things they can do now!!! And we have not allowed ourselves to even look at the outside kitchens!

I'll ask her!! LOL I know that one technique was one she saw on Pinterest. You print the picture and then use modge podge and put it on wood or tile. I'll ask her about the other place she has used. It's a website....and if she uses it...it must be reasonable. I'll find out. I know she has showed me Photo editor | PicMonkey: Free Online Photo Editing I don't remember if that is the one of not. I do know that you can add some cool things to your pictures.

Yes, I would think having a bathroom outside when you have a pool would be perfect. Like you said...people wouldn't be in the house making it to the bathroom...dripping water. Our half bath is very close to the back door....but, it has turned into our primary door too. Gosh, if I had only known! It is close to the garage and the patio...so, most people come to it...once they figure out which door is the back door! We have the back door, a door off the same patio from Jack's office...and then a double door that looks like it could be the front door...but, it really just goes into the garage. That's all on the one patio. Then you see the garage big door. I've seen a few people standing at that double door knocking....these are the people that are trying to sell something. I've been known to stand at the backdoor (it has a window on the top half) and watch them still knocking...give up and leave. It's fun to open the door I was at and asked if they needed something....watching them jump a foot ....priceless!

Well, I think I've told you about the main road to our house has been torn up since before Thanksgiving. This part hasn't really effected us for leaving and returning because it is torn up down from the entrance to our road. It was just made the cutting through traffic less...well, not really. Those people are still cutting through...but then using the housing development across that main road to get to the freeway. Now...starting today....the one intersection on the far east corner will be torn up. So, we'll see when we come home from bowling....how to get to the housing development to cut through to our road. That is suppose to be close for 6-8 weeks to get that intersection done. Okay...I can live with that...so far the other isn't messing things up too bad. Well, we got a letter that our town has approved to tear up the rest of that road west to the town hall. That starts in 30 days. What? That means the other project won't be done. This road is our only way in...we are on a dead end road. At least we do have a way out....at the end of the road is a gate that goes to a neighbors 20 acres. So, hopefully she'll let us use that driveway to get in and out...if it gets too bad! But, talk about timing! Can't get one project done...without messing up the rest of the road! I know they are under a time limit...so maybe it won't be too long. But, once that is done.....all the traffic from a big main road just north of us will be routed through onto our road because they are widening that section. So, we will be getting probably 3 times the amount of traffic...and we won't have stop lights. Don't want stop lights...but, you can imagine the type of traffic that will be coming down our road. Our council certainly doesn't see anything wrong with it. Too bad we missed that meeting!

Yeah Soni, why not enjoy today when we never know how many tomorrows we have? I guess if we have 'too'many tomorrow one of the lids will get permanent house guest!

I have just been doing housework today. I have so many things that I want to do, it's hard to pick what to do. The dogs really need a bath but that I don't wanna do!

Yes, it was nice to see everyone after so many years. It would have been nice if I had been able (allowed) to keep up with them over the years, but that's a closed story.

Probably won't see most of them until the next time.

Yikes Suzy! Nothing like cutting you off from getting in and out of your house. Maybe tell them that they need to put you up in a hotel until they can get your road finished.

Dody, having an outside bathroom is the best thing. You sure don't want people in and out of your house dripping water all over the place unless it was like Suzy's and right inside the door, but then they'll probably want to wander off, so just as well to keep them outside.

Yeah ... How dare it do that!? One day, I'd love to put a small bath house out there. It would be great to put an area in which to put the pool chemicals, too. One side, a potty and shower. The other side, a storage area.


I'm excited for you. I hope you love, love, love whatever you do out there.
