Yeah! You must be getting all that rain we had on Saturday. Hope they get it done for you.

I called the Patio cover people today about putting gutters on the patio cover. He's going to figure it up and call me on Monday with a quote.

I checked my JoAnns & all they had were the extented plates which I don't really need.
Fabulous deal! I bought 2 new B plates not too long ago. My old ones are still serviceable for the most part but the are warped in the center and sometimes don't cut the die so good, so the new ones are nice and flat.

I also purchased some new Cricut mats. Did you know they now come in strengths - they have light, medium, and heavy. The last time I cut something though I used the light one for standard c/s instead of the medium. Worked much better. I'm thinking the heavy one could be used for chipboard or felt. I need to try cutting felt one of these days.

It is fixing to pour again, they have put plywood along most of the deep end & are trying to cover it all. Sand just sinks in the rain, they may have to redig tomorrow or whenever.

Have fun with Faith this morning and congratulations and best wishes to Wally's cousin's daughter. (Is that a 2nd cousin?)
I believe that is the proper tracking of family...not sure tho

I know she will be a truly beautiful bride...I am excited to get to go

Sorry about the rain. I was so glad that the rain held off until the patio was done. I talked to the patio cover people today to get an estimate on putting gutters up

Good morning Quackers! Lovely morning today, a little on the chilly side this morning but at least the wind has died down.

I've been taking Paisley to bed with me the last couple of nights. That keeps everyone happy. I'm concerned about her chasing after Casper after I woke up the other morning to loud cries.

I'm having brunch this morning with my GF Cathyi. Please keep her in your prayers. Things are not going well with her health and will start chemo again on the 13th. It's very intensive too and has some nasty side effects for her. And can you believe her son (where she lives) is leaving soon to go to Saudi for his job. She lives in their garage apartment now and he wants her to live in the house while they're gone, but it doesn't sound like to me that she's going to have that much time and for her to be alone I don't think is good.

Good morning..well guess it's afternoon now. Brrr it's been cold here. Yesterday we got 3" of snow and last night another 1" and an inch of rain. Today suppose to be in the 50's. I'm still lookin for spring. LOL

I slept for the first time in almost 2 months really good. I've been just exhausted. Hopefully tonight, I'll sleep just as well as last night.

Dody...I'm jealous you are getting a pool! I want one so bad. Of course since we don't own the land here, it would have to be an above ground pool. But hubby says NO! And his reasoning is good, but still doesn't take my want away...LOL

Shell...what happened to your knee? I hope it's getting better. I want a Cameo also, my girlfriend got one and I'm waiting for her to learn it so I can go over and check it out before I get one. Figured if I didn't like it or I couldn't do with it what I wanted (I'm sure it will be operator error on my part...LOL) then I wouldn't buy one.

Soni...how has your weather been? I'm sure whatever we are having here you are getting over there as well.

Suzi..Still bowling? flying rockets? What happened to Jack? Hope he's doing well now.

Maggie...Prayers for your girlfriend. That's got to be very frightening for her to move and then her son being gone. How are all the kitties liking the new patio?

Has Kelly not been here? Hope she is doing well.

Off to work on a couple of cards...as long as my shoulder will let me anyways. I have all the parts done (took a couple of days) all I need to do is put them together.

What's everyone doing for National Scrapbooking Day?

TTYL! Have a great day!!

Had a nice brunch visit with my GF. The waitress we had was a little on the loopy side. I don't think she should have been working today. My GF only ate half of her meal so asked for a to go box. Well, the lady took both our plates away and then when she came back, she only brought an 'empty' to go box. We didn't say anything when she took the plate, because we just figured that she would put the food in the box and bring that out. Nothing in it and she had already taken Cathyi's plate with her leftover food. Needless to say there was nothing to take home.

HI Lois, glad you were able to sleep good last night. That always helps.

Thank you for the prayers for my GF. I know she appreciates them. I'm concerned about her being alone. She was wanting to move into an assisted living apartment so that when she needs help, there will be someone there, but then all that goes into moving is very stressful.

The kitties are liking the patio. I'm trying to train one bunch to eat on the patio instead of in front of the other door where there isn't any protection.

I went by WalMart after I left IHOP to pick up some storage things to move stuff in my rooms when they are doinig the window. They had some big bins for only $4.97 and they are heavy duty and sturdy. As I was driving to go there I passed the Big Tex Tree Nursery which I wanted to go to so after WalMart I turned around and went back to the Nursery. Decided on a Red Maple. It's green now, but will turn red in the Fall. Here's a photo of what it should look like. It's pretty big now. I think it will look great in front of my red brick house. They will deliver it and plant it on May 18. We were hoping for this Saturday, but they were all booked.

I'm also going to order a rain barrel and stand from Lowe's to gather rain after I get the gutters on the patio cover.

Soni...sounds like a fun day for you all.

Shell....glad to hear that you are taking it easy with the knee.


I try to take it easy, but not everyone agrees in my interpretation of 'take it easy.' I'll just be glad to get the surgery done so that I can move on with this thing.

The May that we started our pool was the wettest May on record in Atlanta - over 10 inches of rain. Don't worry about it all. They've dealt with it before, and in no time, your pool will be amazing.


We had our annual Honor's Day for our homeschool group kids. They did it at a facility very .... VERY close ... to our house. It only took 2 minutes to drive there and only lasted about 1 1/2 hours. So, on this rainy day, I'm going to hang out in the bedroom, color some images, and watch some mindless TV.

I slept for the first time in almost 2 months really good. I've been just exhausted. Hopefully tonight, I'll sleep just as well as last night.
Shell...what happened to your knee? I hope it's getting better. I want a Cameo also, my girlfriend got one and I'm waiting for her to learn it so I can go over and check it out before I get one. Figured if I didn't like it or I couldn't do with it what I wanted (I'm sure it will be operator error on my part...LOL) then I wouldn't buy one.

Off to work on a couple of cards...as long as my shoulder will let me anyways. I have all the parts done (took a couple of days) all I need to do is put them together.

What's everyone doing for National Scrapbooking Day?

TTYL! Have a great day!!





Still getting snow?! Yikes. Sorry about that. It's only in the 50s here today ... chilly and rainy.


Glad you got some sleep. You need to make sure you take care of yourself!!


At the end of February, I was thrown from a horse into a fence. My knee went over the fence and came back. It tore my MCL, ACL, and miniscus. My doctor has been waiting for my MCL to heal before he could/would do surgery to replace my ACL and fix my miniscus. Surgery is this coming Wednesday, and I will be very glad to get it done.


I love my Cameo. If you are comfortable with the computer, you will have no issues with it. You can use all the fonts on your system and get shapes online.


Good luck on the cards. I hope you get a lot done and don't stress your shoulder at all.




I was going to try to do some of the challenges that are out there today, but I'm going to just hang out, rest the knee, color some images, and just relax (haha) for a while.


You have a great day, too.

Shell, I know you are right about the pool. Of course this is one of the reasons why we went with a pool company that has been in business for over 30 years! Bud just got down from the roof, we had a leak where they took the shingles off to put on the bath house roof. Lovely going to bed & seeing a wet ceiling....sure woke us back up! Pictures are on FB. Shell, I'm not sure what you meant about posting pic here...was that an app I need to download? Remember I am just barely into this century tech wise!

Dody...I'm jealous you are getting a pool! I want one so bad. Of course since we don't own the land here, it would have to be an above ground pool. But hubby says NO! And his reasoning is good, but still doesn't take my want away...LOL

Soni...how has your weather been? I'm sure whatever we are having here you are getting over there as well.

Suzi..Still bowling? flying rockets? What happened to Jack? Hope he's doing well now.

Maggie...Prayers for your girlfriend. That's got to be very frightening for her to move and then her son being gone. How are all the kitties liking the new patio?

Has Kelly not been here? Hope she is doing well.

Hey Lois....wow, more snow!!! That is amazing at this time of year!!! I know that New Mexico would love it! They certainly haven't had much water of any kind...drops or the frozen kind! We hear about it from a friend of my dad's every week!

As for me.....yes, still bowling!!! I had a 500 series earlier in the year. I haven't topped that since!!! But, then again....I guess not many others have either because my name is still at the top of a couple of lists that are put out every week! The pins above average list...and I don't remember the other list. Gosh, I see that and wonder where that bowler went!!! Must have only been here for the night....I haven't had too many wonderful games lately!!! I keep pulling something...which would explain a lot!!!

Still doing rockets!!! We have a high school team going to the nationals...so that will be exciting!!!

Jack is doing better now....thanks for asking. He had a blood clot in his leg. It was caught in time...had surgery to remove it. He spent almost a week in the hospital the end of Feb. We are still trying to get his warfarin levels figure out...so, that means blood work done every couple of weeks. He sees our regular doctor on Monday. So, we'll see what is next. After the blood work this past Thursday...his meds were put up a bit today.

I didn't do anything for Scrapbook Day. I usually miss it because of the rocket club meeting. Hey...maybe that's why we didn't get a good turn out at the meeting today!!!

Good morning Quackers.

Hope to get in some crafting time this morning. Then church and then I have a meeting later tonight. I need to get my PSC card uploaded for this week and I almost have next week's done. I'll be able to work on Suzy's envelope this week. I also want to get started on Christmas cards. Can you believe I have not done any this year so far. I really need to get my head in gear.

Thanks Suzy. I think it will be quite lovely in the Fall. It's also supposed to be a fast growing one. I've been thinking on my back yard too. I need to call my tree guy to move the 2 shrubs from the front around to the back. Then I want a Crepe Myrtle planted over on the narrow side of the back yard on the opposite side from the gate. I want one on the inside of the fence. There's also some kind of shrub tree growing on the outside and I think I'll have him take that one out. Still trying to figure out what else I want to do with the yard.

It's green now, but will turn red in the Fall. Here's a photo of what it should look like. It's pretty big now. I think it will look great in front of my red brick house. They will deliver it and plant it on May 18. We were hoping for this Saturday, but they were all booked.
I hope you enjoy that tree the color will be amazing to look at I love trees but I am sure you know that

what kind of bins?? open or with lids??

and the rain barrel is a great idea...I have always wanted one ... espcially when I had all of my plants and flowers ...
