Hello Chatty Stampers!

Things are still wonky in my posting, so no graphics, colors, and such from me.


CONGRATULATIONS Shelly!


Maxine, you are such a good cheerleader!


Barb, it sure seems like the time has whizzed by... now you're nearing the end of your trip. Are you going to get everything seen/done/tried that you'd hoped to do?


Maggie, my trip was safe, thank you!


Hi Lynn... good to see you!


Waving to everyone else as I dash through. Today will be busy - sheesh! This week will be busy. Minutes to type today; a newsletter to put together the rest of the week; and another out-of-town meeting all day Saturday.

Good morning Chatty Stampers.


Welcome home Jeanette. Glad you are safe with all the winter storms going on across the states.


It was a pretty good day. Got all of my work done for one of my classes which gives me lots of time to work on my other class. We are lucky that we got some hints from our instructor this week. It still is going to take a lot of figuring out. Made plans for lunch on Wednesday with a friend from my old job. Also trying to get my website ready to launch and get my business cards finished.


Need to make a trip to the bank today and work more on my school project.

Good Morning---Happy Wednesday! We did go back to Charleston yesterday and spent a few hours in the historic district. Today will be a down day as we start to get things organized and packed for the trip home. Tomorrow night we are going to the local Trivia contest again and then we leave very early Friday morning. This will probably be my last post until next Monday, so have a good rest of the week and upcoming weekend.

Default Hello

Waving hello!

Thanks for all of the hugs- it is pretty exciting to be named FS and not at all expected! I have been enjoying entering challenges, as I am sorting stamps and really realizing how many I have that have never seen ink......
Yes, the Word Art Wednesday was a couple of weeks ago, I still have to go pick out something from the store. I have browsed the stamps, but have not picked anything out yet.

Maxine- I do not think I have seen a picture of your roses this year : )

Maggie- how exciting to get a web site set up! You will be busy, I'm sure!

Barb- your trip has been exciting to follow- safe travels home!

Jeanette- I am sure your will embrace all you have going on and get it all in order quickly!

Kelly- waving back!

Hi Lynn!

Waving to anyone I missed!

Almost March!!! Get out the green!

Shelly

Good Morning--this is the last day on Tybee Island................. We have had a wonderful time, but are ready to head home! Even though the temps will be cooler and there is lots of snow, home is still good! I looked ahead and the temperature on Sunday at home is the same as here--mid 50's! But, then back to the 30's next week. We went to an Ash Wednesday service at noon yesterday with Claudia to The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah. The church was founded the end of the 18th century and the present building was finished in 1876. We have been having some killer Domino games and played a few games last night. We will get all packed today and head out early tomorrow morning-though not looking forward to driving through Atlanta! Our hotel tomorrow night in in Bowling Green, KY. Have a Terrific Thursday! I will be back online Monday.

Safe travel wishes for you, Barb. My DH feels your pain... he leaves early Sunday morning for a 4-day trip/conference in Atlanta (it's right downtown)... and he's not looking forward to the driving in Atlanta part one bit.

Have you played Mexican Train? I just learned how to play last Christmas at DD's house in CA. It's fun.

How long is that drive? Hope it is not bad weather for him.

Hi Maggie... it's about 500 miles but he's not worried about that. Just not looking forward to driving through Nashville TN and really REALLY dreading driving in Atlanta. He had a conference in Atlanta last year but it was in one of the northern suburbs, not in the heart of it. The weather looks rainy but that's no problem.

HI friends!

Tonight is Scouts and I'm looking forward to tonight especially since its right next to the library (I have books waiting to be picked up) and Starbucks!


We've been working on his latest merit badge which requires me running him around including a trip to the police station. That was scary - I handed over my license and prayed! I got back out and wasn't questioned so that's a good thing. Identify Theft has nearly ruined me.


Safe travels Barb! We are loving our 60* weather today - but I am hoping everyone stays safe in the winter storm blowing through New England.

Maggie, the Cubans here in Miami are HUUUUUUGE into dominos - every party, you bet, dominos. But i've never heard of Mexican train.

Hello Chatty Stampers!

Whew! What a busy week it's been - can anyone join me in saying TGIF?


I'm leaving in the wee hours of darkness tomorrow morning and won't be home again until bedtime (an out-of-town meeting). Then DH leaves in the wee hours of darkness on Sunday for a 4-day work-related trip. Brock and I will keep things going here at home while he's gone.


If I don't pop back in here later today, I'll see you again on Monday... have a fabulous weekend!

Hi all!
You should look it up Kelly. It's lots of fun, requires some strategy. I want to get my family interested in playing so I bought a set of dominos to play it.

I had an easy week with my classes. I had everything done for my business class on Monday except for my reflection. I thought I was going to have a hard time with my other class doing research, but it all worked out and I was able to find out all the information I needed to write my report next week.


Have a safe trip and I hope DH has a safe trip too. I've never had to drive in Atlanta. When I went last year, my SIL picked us up at the airport so I didn't have to drive.

Thanks Maggie. I've driven all over the US (continental) - every single state... and I can truthfully say I would rather drive ANYWHERE other than Atlanta. It's the worst, though Boston was a close second. I've never been to NYC, but I suspect it might be worse to drive in than Atlanta. Chicago and LA are easy peasy compared to Atlanta.

That's my view from behind the wheel.

Please pray - I have just heard of the passing of a dear friend of mine - she was younger than me, and apparently well - I had coffee with her just last week, and we promised that we must catch up again soon...

Sorry for your loss Maxine. Hard to lose a good friend.

Maggie, we call that game Mexican Domino's here - and yes, love it! It's easy and fun too. I haven't played that in so long. My dad, brother, and I used to stay up to all hours playing that.


All is well here - suppose to be up to almost 80 tomorrow......and then cold once more. I have the super crud that I seem to always get and haven't been able to shake it quick this time. Tired of that ucky feeling though - and the coughing and sounding like I'm on my last leg. UGH

Sorry you've got the crud Lynn. I hope it will go away soon. I hate it when I would get that and the cough would linger for months.

Hello Chatty Stampers!


Maxine, I am so sorry - yes, I'm praying for you and for the family of your friend. (((HUGS)))


Lynn, sending get well wishes your way. Take care!


Hi Maggie... I hope you're doing well!


Waving to everyone else!


My meeting Saturday was very good - and the trip went smoothly. I managed to pray my 131 days that day, too... which was a challenge. (Our national organization asked for volunteers to do that.) Yesterday my DH made it to Atlanta safely, and Brock and I kept out of trouble here at home. Today I need to run some errands (in between the morning rains and the afternoon rains) and do a few household chores, but other than that I plan to do some organizing/purging and then stamp the day away. No Monday blahs here... it sounds like a good day.

Good Morning--Home Sweet Home! We got home around 5:00 on Saturday. The drive through Atlanta was uneventful and not really too bad-busy and traffic jams, but okay. Driving through Nashville was really a bit worse for the nerves. And, even Chicago was a breeze to go through. Temps were in the 50's yesterday here and some of the snow has melted. We had our driveway plowed while we were gone, but the steps were snow and ice--and that all melted yesterday! Lion King was outstanding. Our season tickets are for the 1:00 matinee and the show was about 1/4 little ones yesterday. The voices were great and the little guy who played Simba reminded us so much of our great-nephew Arlyn. Today is inky day--I so have missed it! And, the mail will be delivered from the past month, so I will have a bin full to go through also. I hope you too have a Marvelous Monday!

Welcome home Barb! I bet you will be happy to
be back in the stamp room, but what a great vacation. I can't imagine
being gone from home that long.

Thanks Ladies. A month was nice, but we have decided maybe 3 weeks is better.

Hello Chatty Stampers!

I don't usually check the news when I first wake in the morning, but for some reason I did this morning - just after 4:00 a.m. Not a good start to the day. I'm praying for Nashville TN and other areas that were hit hard in the night.

Hugs for all...

Good Morning Friends--I am praying for Nashville this morning. It is so real as we just passed through that area on Friday....................... I did spend most of the day in the stamp room yesterday and made a couple of cards. It also took a bit of time to go through the bin of mail delivered--and there were some new stamping toys in it too! Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Sorry to hear about the deaths from the tornadoes and from the coronavirus. Something needs to be done about that.

That sounds like fun, Maggie! We play board games - a favorite here is Risk (not with me!) and these hilarious card games like the ones you put on your head and guess. Dominoes are in every house in Miami! It's a very latin (cuban) tradition. I'll look your game up!

My SIL in CA loves Risk. I can't believe that I actually beat him one time. It was amazing. In a book I just finished reading, the young girl liked to play it too. She said that her strategy was go get Australia first. If she got that, then she could win the game.

I have a telephone conference this morning with Advising at BYUI to go over my grad planner and see what classes I still need to take to get my Associate's Degree. I think I need 19 more credits which means it's going to take me at least 3, probably 4 semesters until I'm done with that. It was supposed to happen yesterday, but the guy who was to make the call never did, so I called and the girl rescheduled with someone else for today.

Hello Chatty Stampers!

My DH made it home late last night, a day earlier than he' thought he might. i didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped while he was gone - I had a lot of interruptions - but it's good to have him home again. I have now thrown away the "To Do While He's Gone" List.
