Susan, I liked your image, but if there'd been a "love" button, I would have loved it. THANK YOU!

Jeanette, hugs and love for you and your friend's wife. I know you know that over time the sorrow changes, but it is always there.

Susan, I love that awesome image. Those sentiments are so touching!!

My week has had its ups and downs. The eye doctor scheduled my first cataract surgery for early Monday morning. I am excited, but nervous, too. Prayers that all goes well are certainly welcome.

Nicole has her up and down days. Today started as a downer with a seizure and another trip to the vet. After the blood work showed no damage done, she came home and happily gobbled down her breakfast and seems to be ending the day on the up side.

Had two more bits of great news today as well. Tax man had my papers ready, and I will actually be getting some money back this year. Then while heading home down one of the main streets in town saw a sign posted which read "Tuesday Morning - Opening Soon!" It made my day!

Waving hi to Shelly and Kelly! Hope your weekends are off to a great start!!

Oh my gosh I would LOVE Tuesday Morning to open up closer to me. I don't get to the one here too often because I don't like driving far for 1 store. Now if they had a couple scrapbook stores in the same center I'd be there all the time. lol
Sorry about Nicholes seizure but glad she perked up afterwards. Keeps you on your toes! Jim and I just realized our little Missy is 13. YIKES! Still acts like a puppy running around playing fetch and just darting around the yard like a youngster. Don't know what I'll do once she starts slowing down. Told hubby we should get a new puppy now so I won't be hit too hard when Missys time is up. He's not buying that at the moment heeheehee

Did not accomplish much today. Had a migraine so it kinda wiped me. Maybe tomorrow I'll get more crafting one. I do need a couple Bday cards so at least I have a plan. No big plans for the weekend. Dumb weather has been chilly and now they are talking snow on Sunday. Geeeezzzzzz.....it's APRIL!

Have a great weekend.

Thank you, Lynn. I am sorry Nicole had more issues today. Will be praying for you and your surgery!

Susan, I'm sorry about your day and the migraine. I hope you're feeling better now!

Geeze........once again I type a book and lose internet signal just as I hit the word post and everything is lost. You would think SCS would have a draft option so we wouldn't lose what we type if theres a connection error.

I'm feeling much better now but then again I am now up at 4:45. I think I even beat you Jeanette. Ummmm...maybe not. You are such a night owl. I don't know how you do it on such little sleep. I swear I'm like a teenager....I can sleep the day away sometimes. heeheehee

Today is Pinewood Derby round 2. Bryce won best design and fastest car back in Feb winning all the heats. He wasnt to enter back into best design today instead of racing but he changes his mind so often that I'm not sure what his final decision will be for today.

Boy it is so quiet in this house this early and dark. Creepy..lol Well since I'm up this early I think I'll go check out the blogs.

Wake up sleepy heads!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!







Susan, you win the prize! I slept in (didn't get up until almost 6:00 - WOW!). I'm so glad you're feeling better. What's this though? You don't like the dark and quiet house? I kind of do like that part of my wee hours of darkness in the mornings.

Good luck to Bryce no matter what he chooses!!!




Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really slept late this Saturday. Wasn't up until 6:55!! What a treat!! Had my coffee, played my Cookie Jam and now I am here to check out the Inspiration Challenge.

Today I will also have to attack the laundry that has been piling up this past week or I don't be able to climb to the top of that mountain without a rope!! LOL!!

Susan, so sorry that you suffer with migraines! My heart goes out to you!! Wish you could have slept in this morning!! Can't wait to hear how Bryce does at the Pinewood Derby finals!!

I do like the dark, quiet house, too, Jeanette!! I get lots more accomplished during those hours, it seems!

Kelly, I loved the fabulous picture of Alice and her Cat in the Hat on FB!! What a precious child!!

Shelly, I loved your sibling picture on FB!! I didn't even know it was Sibling Day until the day after. Guess I didn't check out FB that day!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!

YAY for sleeping in, Lynn! Can I send some things over for you to wash for me, since you're doing laundry anyway?

Well Bryce came in second for best in show. He was so excited.


Well as most of you know we got about 8 inch's of very wet heavy snow today. Cannot believe it's April looks more like December. Hopefully this all melts by tomorrow and we don't have to shovel. Lol...yep we're that lazy right now.... shoveling is so over rated. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„. Since it snowed I spent the day making treat holders for decorating the Easter dinner table. Figured I'd make it extra special for the kids.




Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!





CONGRATULATIONS Bryce!!! (He certainly looks thrilled, Susan, as he should be!) And your little treat holders are adorable!

Lynn, I'm not sure why, but the PO returned my laundry, something about undeliverable. UGH! Now I have to do my own laundry today. But... at least I won't be shoveling snow.

Waving to Shelly and Kelly!



Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No snow here, but hail and tornadoes hit the state Saturday and Sunday. Praying for those killed and injured.

What an awesome feat for Bryce!! Such an accomplishment!! I love that fab picture, Susan. And won't the kids love your Easter table!!! What fun!!

Easter will be here alone with my mom and dad.

Finished my prep for 6:50 cataract surgery this morning. I am on my way out the door now. My 90 year old dad is going to be my driver.

Nicole continues to do poorly. It is so sad to watch her decline.

I think Shelly has a birthday this week!! Happy Birthday, girl!!

I think that returned package may have had a questionable odor!! Better get it in the washer quickly, Jeanette!!

Kelly, what's up in your neck of the woods? Can't wait to see Alice in her Easter best!

Oh boy Jeanette yes you better get that laundry in the wash! Quick before something grows in there! heeheehee. Yeah we think Bryce is pretty adorable too. Such a skinny mini compared to other scouts his age. But boy can he eat! He's like an eating machine here. Thanks for comments on my treat packages. I know the kids will love them. The moms are getting the decoupage eggs.

Lynn good luck with surgery today. Check in with us when you are able. I'm assuming you dad is a great driver for being in his 90's. My dad passed at 84 about 11 years ago and let me tell ya there was no way I was getting into a car he would be driving. LOL His attitude was people should know he's old and get out of his way! Oy Vay! Sorry to hear about Nichole too. Hows the other one doing? I forgot her name. Does she sense somethings wrong?

Is it Shellys Birthday? I should have sent her a present of snow! Not sure if she got any of this.

Kelly could you send up just a little heat to melt all this stuff? Claire has been wanting bubbles so I bought some and now we can't go out and blow bubbles! They'll freeze! Easier to catch unless they shatter when they hit the ground.

Boiling eggs today and then its color time tonight with the kids. They have such busy weeks that we always seem to do it the monday before Easter. This year Claire may want to do it herself so I bought her a little Egg wisk that you put the egg in so the child can dunk it without it falling off those cheezy wire egg holders that come in the kits.

Have a great Monday!

Susan, crisis averted... first load is in the dryer and second load is washing.

Nope... not wanting any eggs, colored or not. LOL! Have fun with the grands doing that.

I don't ride with my Dad either. Yikes! Scary stuff!!! (But then again, I also don't ride with DH - he says I'm a control freak but I say it's his driving. LOL!)

I'm back and I think things went well. I am seeing well enough to keep my dad from pulling out in front of an 18 wheeler on the way home! One down and one to go. I think they will give me a date for it on my followup visit tomorrow! MAY get a friend to drive me to that one! LOL!! Should be able to drive myself in the morning!

Loved decorating eggs back in the day!! And I am a huge fan of egg salad so there was always plenty after Easter!

Gonna snuggle down with Nicole and Calleigh (the other one, Susan) and watch TV and nap for the rest of the day!!

Hello Paper-Loving Inky Friends!






FYI - I am leaving in a few hours and will be gone the remainder of this week. I'm leading a D-Group breakout for our state convention this evening (in a town about 3 hours from our home) then will leave from there to head to my parents for a visit in the morning. Have a great week - and a...

Happy Easter!

I'll see you again next Monday.



Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Safe travels Jeanette and have a wonderful Easter.

No Lynn that silly bunny never buried eggs in snow before and with a little luck he wont have to this year either. We had a ton of sun yesterday tho temps were still kind of low but the snow is already melting. Already it is 48 which is warmer than all day yesterday and it will continue to warm up to a breezy 74 by Easter. Whewwww. The Bunny did NOT want to dig through snow. lol

The kids had fun decorating the eggs and I was so smart by buying Claire the craft eggs to use instead. She couldn't tell the difference and thought she was doing exactly what her brother and sister were doing. Bryce was cracking us up as he literally cracked nearly every egg he dyed. Either befor it went in the dye or as he was trying to put it back in the carton it would fall. He's pick it up and shout "I'm OK!!" "See you can't even see the crack" But boy we sure did hear the crack. lol Going to be some colorful develed eggs on Easter. We'll have to save the whiter ones for egg salad if there are any. heeheehee

No big plans today.

Shelly...Kelly...what are you two up to? Shelly the baby shower was over the weekend right? How'd it go?

I'll check in later

Hello Hello!

From the crazy Santi household! Where do I go to resign as launderer, chef, chauffer, camper, grocery shopper, maid, etc! LOL! Wow .......

Susan, I can't believe you still have snow - didn't Phil not see his shadow this year Congratulations to Bryce! I'm wondering where you will hide the eggs?! We trick or treated in the snow and did winternacht in a blizzard ~ that was fun!


Jeanette - safe travels! I never get in the car with my dh behind the wheel. NOPE. I drive, he sleeps.

Oh Lynn, I am sad to hear about Nicole - I'm thinking good thoughts as you try to make her the most comfortable. You are amazing to shower her with love and kindness. Thank you for your sweet words on Alice! She's growing SO fast. She adores Cat in the Hat on tv so I found her some CITH thing to play with β™₯ The Easter Bunny is bringing a little more!


Shelly must be as busy as an almost-gma can be ...... always in so many places at once!

I'm off to Tuesday Morning to pick up some odds and ends for dh's birthday party - we're planning a little hoopla here at home (his choice) and it's getting exciting!

Toodles!

A party??? I love to party! Lol. No hiding eggs here at least "I" won't be but a particular girl scout troop will be doing the deed for the Easter Bunny instead. They arrive after 8pm on Saturday hide the eggs and leave a note from the Easter Bunny. It's their fundraiser to hel the troop go to Europe. Awesome! And it's only costing me $40. They even fill the eggs! A deal I could not pass up.
Enjoy dh's party. I will be there...maybe a bit lateπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

Susan, I am so impressed with this genius idea by the Girls Scouts to raise funds for their trip!! I would be all over that.

Here is our town the Boy Scouts come by and plant a big American flag in your front yard on every patriotic holiday for a fee of $75 for the whole year. I love it.

Kelly, knowing you, the "at home party" for your husband's birthday with be sensational, and I know he will love it!!

Shelly, May is almost here!! Can't wait to have you join the Granny Club with Susan, Kelly, and me!! What an exciting time for your family!

Hope that Jeanette has arrived safely at her parents and is enjoying a little family time.

Sadly, I had to make the decision to put Nicole down yesterday. She was going down hill so quickly and struggling to breath. We are now a one dog and one doggy momma household again.

Oh Lynn I am so sorry to hear about Nichole. I know you did all that was possible and made the right choice. She is no longer struggling and was lucky to have you as a fur mama for her ending days. I'm sure you and Calleigh will be doing alot of cuddling.

Helping a friend pack up some supplies for a weekend Crop type event she is going to with her SIL. She doesn't crop and doesn't really want to go to this but she promised her SIL and needs to go. I convinced her that she could use the time making some christmas tags and get ahead of the season. She didn't want to haul a ton of supplies and this will be perfect. I usually do tags at the cabin because it requires little packing. It'll be fun gathering stuff with her today. Pretty sure she'll enjoy herself once she gets there.

Waving to Shelly, Kelly and Jeanette.

Hello friends ~ hopped on to say hello on this slight break!


Oh Lynn, I am so sorry to hear about Nicole. My heart breaks for all of you - and I hope her sister doesn't miss her so much. Oh my, I'd be a mess.

I think we are ready to party ........ I'm doing a "Welcome to Spain!" theme. Dh will be surprised, no doubt β™₯

Happy pre-Good Friday!

Just a quick note...wanted to wish all of you a Happy Easter. As you can see Claire thinks the bunny can't see her..lol. Tori carried her up and she had her head buried in her chest and refused to even glance at the bunny. Kids make the best memories.
Have a wonderful Easter everyone!

Default Hello

Surprise!!!

I am finally home and have a minute...I cannot get on the computer when anyone is watching TV, and we had a lazy TV watching evening. Silly show my daughters watch and the Motown music special (music which I grew up on....).

We were so busy in Colorado! The shower was beautiful- I think I was the eldest person there : ) My DIL has no clue, but she has enough onsies 0-3 mos to clothe quintuplets!!! LOL Shower pics on FB

We did a huge yard cleanup- needed to be done- and filled a 10 ft trailer and took crap to the dump. WE made a HUGE fire with alot of the wood in the yard(and leaves)- hubby raked and got 9 garbage bags of sticks and yard stuff you get when you rake.... the yard looks so good now!

Hubby then painted in the guest house- the cabinets above the stove and fridge and the door to the bathroom (white) , and I replaced a couple of curtains- which I had to measure and adjust the seam- she has a machine- threw away the stitch guide, so I had to play with it a bit, but mission accomplished. I fixed one of the blinds and removed/replaced one and hung another over the sink- looks better. I also planted lots of flowers and pulled weeds and mulched a bed 10 ft x 4 ft....... And, hope the flowers get watered and grow- it is so hot there it is hard to grow flowers.

My nephew from Telluride drove over and it was so nice to visit with him- such a great kid!!! Its probable 2 1/2 hours away from Fruita.

My son said the biggest help (after cleaning up the yard) would be a deep clean of the guest house- which is rented on Airbnb all of the time, so Katie and I went to cleaning....... LOL, I have a cleaning lady at home..... just once a month..... but I put on a smile and cleaned away- thankfully, it is a small little house : )

Back home late Friday- plane was late, so I didn't get to bed until 3AM, and up for a wedding shower Sat at 11- it was really nice- Stephi flew in on Friday- she is in the wedding (which is in Sonoma California in October). Then , the girls took us to a paint and wine last evening- Ray also wanted to give it a go- so cute! We had such a great time!

We had a nice service today at church, then came home and Ray and Katie got the meal together (Salmon on the grill) and salad, not a typical Easter meal..... but it was delicious. Then we had a visitor, and then watched TV..... Nice relaxing day! Today is also Stephi's 26th Birthday (Sunday).... Funny how the kids get older, but we don't think we do...!

Lynn- I am so sorry about the pup. Gad you are taking care of the eyes, and yes- please get a friend to drive for round 2!

Kelly- your party sounds so fun! Hope the weather cooperated and Toni is surprised! The pictures of the baby on FB- soooo cute!!!

Jeanette- safe travels and have a great visit with your parents! I do let hubby drive- as much as he will! I help too- not sure how he gets anywhere without me : ) I am such a backseat driver!

Susan- how fun is that- the picture of the Easter bunny and the egg hunt for the kids! And, Congrats on 2nd place in the derby- very cool!!!

Missed you all- and hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed Easter! Hope you also enjoyed your coffee/tea while reading this long post!!! LOL

Shelly
