Soni, those projects sound very worthwhile. I hope they help you. It amazes me that I have trouble rembering to write my 1 line in my thankful joural. I have so much to be grateful for I just forget at night...must make it a habit!

Wow! Quilts, cardmaking, and librarian! Sounds like it'll be fun.

Guess what! My youngest DD is starting to quilt! You should see the quilt pattern that she's going to make. Wow! I wouldn't do that one. She used to sew a lot, so I guess she'll be okay.

We had a pretty nice day today. If I didn't need to go weigh in, I think I would have gone to walk. I sure hope I can get started again soon.

I'm still working at it. If I can get back to moving a bit, I think that will help.

Oh, yes, I am actually eating healthier than I was before. I've cut out a lot of the chocolate in my diet and more fruits and veggies.

Good morning Quackers.

Enjoy your day Soni. I really need a hair appointment, but I've been putting it off. I want it to grow a little longer before I have her touch it because she'll cut too much of it off.

I thought about letting mine grow but I doubt it

Sounds like you will be busy. I have one question.... how many 'used' books will come home with you?

Good morning ladies
I am home today. We got less than an inch of rain yesterday. But the rain was enough to give me very little energy by the time I got home. I was in bed by 8:30. Watched the last 1/2 of the Ann Bolyne story. One of the better ones I've seen on her.

Today is to be overcast, windy and only in the 40s. Good day to stay home and see what else I can get accomplished.

Haven't heard from Bob yet this morning. I don't get to involved in anything until he's called.

morning!!! Just a quick check in before I have to fly.

Kelly, since I have already bought a bunch of those used books I bet lots & lots more will find their way here!!! They have really good authors & so many to pick from. It's about a 18x18 room packed floor to 6 foot shelves plus 'featured authors' on shelves outside the room.

Dody....wow, that's great about the quilt progress. Good girl! You will have to let us know about the new library gig for you. Hope you get it. It sounds like a fun one to do. Plus, all those titles at your finger tips! LOL

Soni....hope all goes well for the haircut. I had the lady not take much off of mine this last time. She actually listened...and the phone didn't ring while I was there...amazing! It will be much longer by the time I see her at the beginning of next month...haven't decided if I want her to layer it long or not. It's just now getting longer...but, the sides still haven't grown much. Not sure why?

We are having dinner with family tonight. Jack's cousin is in town with her hubby. They are coming up to see son. Son is a fireman up here. I guess he is about 30 min from us.

It's much cooler today...compared to the 80* yesterday. It is suppose to rain all weekend. The pollen count is high for Mt. Cedar and Elm today. Got some stuffy going on in the nose and head. Not sure if it has gotten to Jack yet. He is outside with Pie right now. Funny how the day starts for Pie.....he goes out with Jack. Jack sits at the table outside with his computer. Pie lets him know when it's time to come in. Too funny!

Oh...forgot to tell you....yesterday, I was on the computer. I had already gotten dressed..but, needed to check something. Got hooked...was still on....okay, I don't need to explain that part....you have all been there! Anyway, I heard some scratching noises. Ignored it....then heard it again. Got up from the computer...and found Pie in the house with a lizard! Oh my...this lizard was huge!!!! It was 2" across the body...and about 12" long...that was including the tail!!! I reached down to pick it up...and it got away from me. Pie reached out...and put his paw in the middle of the lizard...no claws...just the paw. Held it down for me...and I picked it up. Apparently this one had been in the house before. I go over to the treat box to give Pie treats....can't put the lizard down on the counter...he would take off. I managed to get the box open...and then pulled the treat bag out. Still holding on to the lizard with three fingers....I opened the bag with thumb and forefinger with both hands. Pie is looking at me like it was taking too long....the lizard just waited. I walked out side....Jack was glued to a game on the computer. He didn't even know that Pie had trotted in with the lizard. He put the lizard out in a "new" location.

So....I marked the calender for the first catch and release of the season!!! Bring it on!!!!

well a happy medium I think

thought about growing to shoulders and layering with soft curls with the gray no guarantee it will work

so today I liked Tif's asked if mine would look like hers, and ifI could manage it with one hand

so here we are

it has layers, no curling iron at all
light and fluffy

no more frumpy and grumpy : )

I uploaded a pic but not in my pics need to shut down first I guess

Good afternoon Quackers.

I'm at home. As I was driving to work this morning I could feel the start of a scratchy throat and it has progressed from there. Not bad yet and I want to keep it that way, but very irritating. Since my boss is out of town, I decided I could get the few things done that had to be done and then come on home.

Now, I need to go find that gargle recipe.

Interview went well, they are fully staffed right now but will need help in Apirl when the snow birds go home. That would work well for me too.

I reached down to pick it up...and it got away from me. Pie reached out...and put his paw in the middle of the lizard...no claws...just the paw. Held it down for me...and I picked it up. Apparently this one had been in the house before. I go over to the treat box to give Pie treats....can't put the lizard down on the counter...he would take off. I managed to get the box open...and then pulled the treat bag out. Still holding on to the lizard with three fingers....I opened the bag with thumb and forefinger with both hands. Pie is looking at me like it was taking too long....the lizard just waited. I walked out side....Jack was glued to a game on the computer. He didn't even know that Pie had trotted in with the lizard. He put the lizard out in a "new" location.

So....I marked the calender for the first catch and release of the season!!! Bring it on!!!!
wow and ewe

Soni....hope all goes well for the haircut. I had the lady not take much off of mine this last time. She actually listened...and the phone didn't ring while I was there...amazing! It will be much longer by the time I see her at the beginning of next month...haven't decided if I want her to layer it long or not. It's just now getting longer...but, the sides still haven't grown much. Not sure why?
If you figure that out let me know. Mine seems to be the same way. I can tell it's growing because I can see my roots, but it doesn't really seem longer.

Enjoy the time with Jack's family. Where'd you go to eat?

Little ones are about all I can handle and we don't see too many of them around here either, just once in awhile. Glad it got relocated.

Glad that the interview went well and that they'll be able to have you work there later in the Spring.

Good morning Quackers. Throat is not good this morning. It went from scratchy to very sore overnight. It was really hard sleeping. Too busy to be sick though.

I'm off to get some breakfast, gargle, and get started on my day.

Dody, check out this webstore for stools. They have a huge selection and some good prices. I've purchased from them before and they're good to work with. I got my garden bench from them and my kitty dog house among other things and have always been satisfied with their service.

Bar Stools - Swivel Bar Stools, Leather and Wood Bar Stools
