Hi Jeanette! Good to see you back! As what I've been up to, I've been enjoying my new job! The store I'm working at opens on Friday and I'm so excited! And my summer theatre season starts tonight! So it's time to get summer busy.

Good Morning check in - LONG LONG weekend and getting back into the swing of things.

ONE MORE WEEK OF SCHOOL!!! It's going to be a choatic week, a lot of events and end of school things going on, plus chauffering my dd17 back and forth to her new job (her 2 sisters work/go to school (during the summer session) at different times so I'm back to the commute, even during summer - gah!

And my laptop is no longer working so I'm borrowing this one ;( Windows 10 was installed and the entire operating system is off whack. It will have to go to the shop next week *cry!*

I will be in and out but thinking of you all!

Sami, I'm so glad you're enjoying your new job! I wish I could come for the grand opening. What's your role in theatre? on stage or behind the scenes? (My college degree is in Speech & Theatre).

Kelly, I'm hoping even with one DD to chauffeur to/from work you'll still find next week's schedule lighter than this week's.

I know I can't believe the store opens tomorrow! I've been working a lot of shipping and stuff lately for their online business which they run out of the basement of the store and haven't learned anything in the retail store upstairs yet! ) I think the opening might end up being a learning on the fly day!

For theater, I do both actually... I do more backstage stuff then onstage stuff because I'm absolutely horrible at auditioning... the show I'm working on this summer though I'm backstage as the props mistress.

Thanks Jeanette, that's what I'm hoping for, too. Her sister works down the street but their schedules won't match up (often) but once in awhile, it will work out that she can take her and not me I spend my days on the road from sun up to sun down, so summer's off for me are precious!

I already scooped up that freebie yesterday - I love Gerda, she's super sweet and generous ♥

Sami, sounds like a fun day ahead! Grand openings are wonderful! Best of luck

*Scattering hugs!*

Sami, I'm sure you'll learn the retail store quickly. I loved hearing about your theatre involvement. When I was in college the professor in charge of costuming learned quickly that I could sew........... and so much of my time was spent in the costume department. It was cool though... I even got to design/oversee the costumes for our mainstage production one term. Such fun!!!

Kelly, I'm glad sometimes your other DD can take her to work....... and you can enjoy a bit more of summer vacation that way.

Default Hello!

End of a long week- had a throat virus and then worked my days! Now off a couple of days.

We are doing some work in the house, have new furniture in 2 rooms, moving old furniture in basement out, moving old furniture from family room down into the basement, cleaning floor rugs and getting ready to get some painting done.

Chris' fiance is from NJ, and she is a teacher- so she drives to NJ each year in June. She stops here mid way and rests up. She brings their two dogs with her. One tinkles on the rugs, so I am not going to put them back out after cleaning till after they head out next week. He will fly out there at the end of the month and drive back here with her. There will be an engagement at each of the parents homes, we will have ours 7/2. We were invited there, so will plan on going- meet the parents : )

We have a family reunion on Mom's side of the family at my brothers home the 3rd of July. It is about 1 1/4 from here, so not bad. Lots of family in one weekend!

Sami- I am with the ladies- would spend all of my $$$ if I worked at a craft store- it will be fun- keep us posted! It is not Gina K's place , is it???

Lynn- hope the weather stays nice- with no rain or blocked roads.....

Kelly- there is a light at the end of the tunnel for you!

Jeanette- you are sure putting a few miles on the cars : )

Waving hello to all. Hope everyone has a fab rest of the weekend : )

Shelly

Sorry you've been sick Shelly! But you're right! I do work at Gina K's new store! I absolutely love it! Gina and Tom are amazing people and I have great Co-Workers! Our opening weekend was great and I even got to teach a make and take yesterday! So you never know if you order anything from Gina K I might be shipping it to you. So far I have been good and haven't bought anything.... we'll see how long that lasts though. My Birthday is coming in a couple weeks so I might have to buy myself a Birthday present or 2.

Good Morning Chickies!



Did anyone feel this way this morning?



Shelly, WOW! You have been busy... getting the house spruced up is fun, isn't it?

Sami, that's great... glad you enjoyed the grand opening!

VBS started last night - I'm teaching in one of the churches in our association. As a state trainer I had to teach somewhere and the church where our membership is has their VBS next week - when we are gone all week for the National Convention. So I'm glad this church is letting me teach there. We had fun last night - very small group of kids but they sure were a lively group.

Today I'm going to work on some cards (DT stuff) and then hope to do a little work in my garage, too. I also need to go to the PO this morning.

What's up with everyone else???

Shelly, it sounds like the pool is the place to be with the temperature up in the 90s. Enjoy your time with your mother.

Congratulations on a successful end to your Vacation Bible School, Jeanette. Have fun in St. Louis at the national convention.

Sami, you must have willpower of steel. I would be in the hole and owing money if I worked at Gink K's store!

I have been inspired by the arrival of new stamping stuff from SU's new catalog to get my card spinner filled with get well, praying for you, and sympathy cards for the church ministry. I added a dozen cards yesterday and hope to do double that today.

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend to all!

Good Morning Fellow Chickies!

I'm packing up and doing some necessary things here this morning and then heading to St. Louis for our Annual Convention. I won't have any spare time, so I will not be back to SCS until the end of next week. Have a great weekend - and upcoming week, too!

See you Friday!

HI friends - yes, it's summer! But we haven't stopped yet - LOL. VBS started today and it's back adn forth and back and forth. I'd intended to take the week off this year but it's easier to just stay so starting tomorrow, I'm back to being helper extraordinaire My kids are all teaching/assisting so that's big fun!

My heart is heavy for the recent events here in Florida, both with the shooting of Christina from The Voice and the senseless shooting at the night club in Orlando. My SIL lost two good friends and has been inconsolable since learning the news - they grew up together since childhood. Just hurts my heart and I've been praying, praying.

I've read all the news here and hope everyone continues to do well, including the friends that haven't checked in here for awhile.

*Sending love to all!*

Such heartbreaking events leave us all feeling so helpless and defeated. All those touched by these evil acts are in my every prayer. As are we all. When will the hate end?

Hugs, Kelly. God bless you for your help with VBS. I need to sign up for ours.

Default Hello!

Just dropping in to say hello. I had Mom here this weekend- lots of fun planned, and my back went out. Spent most of the weekend on the couch..... Have an MRI tomorrow at 7AM....ewwww Hospital is 45 minutes away.

I had to go to the ER Saturday- they gave me valium and Toradol and that settled down my back- so I was able to drive Mom today and get back and do OK.

I am thinking of cutting down my hours at work until it settles down, we'll see. Just sit too much there.

Sorry to hear about the horrible shooting on Orlando today- wow- crazy!!! Sorry to hear your SIL knew some of the folks. SO much mental illness in our world. With our budget cuts in Illinois to come (budget issues), it wil only get worse here........

I will have tomorrow and Wednesday off- will get to blogs by Wed nite at the latest. I miss seeing what everyone is up to when I get behind. Good ole summertime!

My son's fiance- Kayla- came through this weekend when my Mom was here- her Grandma died and she was driving from Co. to NJ for the funeral, and we were a rest point. She is a delight. I had some crafty stuff to paint/decorate for the shower for 7/2, but was confined to the couch, so she and Katie worked on it- so fun. She is creative and came up with some really cool ideas.

Waving hello to all

Shelly

Lynn, yes it is so heartbreaking - and senseless. I really pray for this world, as there is so much going on that it's just truly frightening. I love VBS every year - today was soooooo hot - 90+ degrees and even higher with our humidity, I'm thinking tomrorow we may want to skip recreation

Shelly, I'm glad you are getting some rest and hope the meds take care of your back pain for you! If your job let's you take some time off, that's probably the best! YAY on the visit with your daughter in law-to-be!

*waving to everyone!*

Default Hi!

Happy Friday- yeah for the weekend. What is everyone doing for Father's Day?

We will head to Dubuque tomorrow to visit Stephi and will stay North of Dubuque in a house on the Mississippi (Airbnb). It looks like it is in the middle of no where....looks nice and relaxing!

I broke down and bough the magazine with the Altenew stamps- the Stamping FB page everyone says they are not the same quality as the Altenew stamps, but they were OK. I made a card for my piano teacher- made a couple of SCS challenges this week. Lynn, I did not know you had a stampin sis on SCS too!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Shelly

My son and one granddaughter will be here to celebrate Father's Day. My other granddaughter and her mother left today for college orientation week.

Yes, my sister is the person who introduced me to SCS back in 2005. She was a SU demo for many years. She is more active here than I am these days in the challenges and such although I did find myself joining in on Virtual Stamp Night yesterday and today.

Your piano and roses card is a beauty, Shelly. And I know you will enjoy some relaxing time in the cabin on the Mississippi!

Happy Father's Day to all!

Good Morning Fellow Chickies!





Remember me? I disappeared for an out-of-town trip, then life really got hectic so I didn't make it back again... until today. And today will be a quick run through, as I have way too much to do this week before I can leave (with DD) on Thursday). EEK!!! Anyone want to help me tackle my "To Do" list???

Kelly, YAY for summer and VBS! (My heart aches for Florida and the world. Such a senseless tragedy!)

Shelly, OUCH! I hope you get some relief soon!

Lynn, I loved reading about your sister. Do you mind sharing who she is?

Waving to all the other Chickies!

OMG it has been forever since I've been here and even longer since I posted anything new on my blog. It has been totally crazy here. Still working on kitchen reno. Things got postponed and now that I would much rather be at the cabin everything is in full swing again. Rains had prevented the shed from being reshingled but it's finally being done today. Cabinets are in and we are now waiting for the counter guys to bring in the final template and let us know when that will be installed. Floor was delivered on Saturday and should be installed this coming Monday the 27th. We will wait on the patio door until the fall. I really need to get up north and get ready for our annual Pig Roast on our beach that we have on the 4th. Yeah I know....I'm running our of time. Then in mid july my sister is having a shoulder replacement. She now live just 3 lots down from our cabin so I'll be up there to help her out. Her grown kids are all in Chicago with their own little familys and heck....what else do I have to do!! LOL
I checked out all the blogs last night and you ladies have been busy. Every single thing I saw was beautiful! I swear the only crafting I have done has been at the Nursing home. Oh well......it will get slower sometime right?? One can only hope!
To all of you who are traveling about...SAFE TRAVELS!
I'll check in when I can...............someday I'll get internet at the cabin heeheehee!

Great to see you back, even if it's just for a short stay, Jeanette. My sister is lazylizard here on SCS and her blog is Right Brain Madness. You can see by the names of our blogs that we are opposites in many ways! LOL!

Great to see you, too, Susan! I hope you will post some pictures where your remodel is finished!

Good Morning from a RAINY Miami! Oh the rains are coming down down down - no chance of leaving the house today - not even for my Starbucks! I'ts a Keurig kind of day here and I'll be home stamping!

Lynn, I remember when Liz was in the Crafters of Faith group I started a couple of years ago - so faithful and talented! And her zentangles were out of this world!!

Waving to everyone!

Default Hi!

Well, I went to the PT today and got bad news- he says I am in a bad way, and told me I could only take 5 minute walks, need to take it easy...and to consider not working at a job where I sit all day.

I have had a couple of shots of cortisone in misc places- bottom of foot (absolutely the worst pain ever), neck trigger points, elbow, etc...but never into the spine. I got the idea he thinks once I am off steroids I am going to be getting shots- need one in SI joint, one in lumbar spine and in neck...... I am unable to do any lifting and he really drilled it into me over and over that I need to NOT go crazy with the upcoming bridal shower and engagement party.

We are heading to NJ for the engagement party there this Sat, and he strongly advised me to go with drugs- muscle relaxants and steroids just in case...... He is a very good therapist, I have seen him before and he never came off that strongly. I came home very sad...... Reality or something. I am going to talk to my boss again, just not worth it to keep working at a sitting job and make myself worse.

Waving hello to all- just not in too much of a chatty mood..... I hope all is well with you all. Please say a quick prayer- for God's will for me!

Shelly

Good Morning Chickies!




Oh my, Shelly... I am so sorry the news was so bad. Praying for you!

Lynn, how funny to see in the blog titles the uniqueness of both you and your sister. Thanks for the chuckle!

Kelly, I'm sorry about the rain keeping you home.......... but at least you got to stay home, right?

FYI - My DD and I leave TOMORROW morning for our Alaskan Bible Journaling cruise... so unless I pop back in here later today, you won't see me here until the first week of July.

Oh Shelly, prayers and more prayers! You have such a busy schedule coming up with the engagement party and traveling - you MUST get better, you just must! I'm sorry you were given sad news, but you are so strong and have a great support system around you. I know if anyone can make all the things you need to do happen, you can. And yes - talk to your boss! You never know what answers await if you don't ask.

Happy travels, Jeanette! We are leaving next week for a 3 day 'up North' trip - a cabin, lazy river, tubing! We will jumping IN the water, you will stay OUT OF the water - LOL! Then in mid-August, we have our Disney trip booked and ready ... but after that accident with the little boy, it makes me sad to think of that family.

Little man is having a blast at camp, I'm told. In the 'ahem, smuggled!' pictures I'm seeing he is constantly smiling and doing EVERYTHING there is to do. He's such an adventurous little guy.

The sun is out so dd and I are heading out in a bit - waving to all!

Oh, no, Shelly! I am so saddened that you are suffering so much pain. I hope that between your doctor, your therapist, and your boss that a positive and helpful approach will come to light. You continue to be in my prayers! Enjoy your weekend, but take this easy as much as possible!

Happy sailing, Jeanette! What a fun-filled adventure that sounds like!

Kelly, tubing is practically a year-round sport here in Texas. It has been curtailed a bit with recent flooding, but almost back to normal I am told. Have a wonderful time you your family on the river!
