I will still visit and comment those blogs I now visit, so I will see you around the blog block.

Hugs to all, Kim
Kim, I just went to check my blog - since I hadn't pulled you from my blog list and wanted to see if you were still there. You are...... but for some weird reason (unknown to me) blogger has you at the bottom of my blog roll with no information of how recently you posted. That's so strange. I'll try to remember to check your blog regularly - I usually only check the ones who have updated since the last time I checked blogs. I'm sorry I've been missing yours.

I don't know what is up with that! I depend on that list to keep up with who has a new post.

I have truly enjoyed your amazing creations and all the wonderful tutorials you have shared so generously. I will continue to be a follower and fan!
Lynn, thanks for explaining. UGH on what Blogger is doing.

Good to be here, Lynn. I went back over the last few pages yesterday. So much has happened!

Oh, I see. I saw I was down the bottom of the list with no pic and just figured you were cleaning out the slackers If you had done it, it wouldn't have surprised me...as I said in my earlier e-mail it would have been rightfully so. That sounds like something WordPress would do, too!

I'm glad you'll keep visiting me as I will you and all the other fab gals here. If I can, I will pop in here from time to time. I need more hours in a day, LOL

Thanks for letting me know.

Default Hello!

Hello! It is good to know about the blog rolls, as I try to comment weekly, but do not always go to the ones at the bottom of the list

I have Mom here still, we are busy...... with Physical Therapy visits and just hanging out. I have to laugh- she tells me like it is (aka.... no filter) and when I play piano (she is a beautiful pianist) she tells me I need more practice.....LOL When she grew up, she had to practice 2 hours a day. I am alot better than I used to be though : ) 2nd year student. I have been playing more than Mary had a Little Lamb anyway.... hehehe

Mom had a 4 hour appt today for Neuropsyc testing. It will determine her memory status. We will not hear anything for about 4 -6 weeks. They review entire med records and labs, meds, etc..... She cannot remember what she ate for breakfast by noon, or if she even ate.... She is very pleasant to be around though- she likes to have fun and laugh alot.


I have not been in my craft room at all- hoping to be there this weekend!

Sorry to hear about the storm damage Kelly- glad the folks were OK! That is so right, things and stuff can be replaced....


Safe travels Jeanette and Sue. Beautiful country and a lovely time of year to be traveling too Sue.


Kim, I am with Lynn, love your tutorials : ) and your cards.


I keep saying,,,when this I will have more time. I do think when Mom moves back and son's wedding is over, I will have more time! I think I will, so we'll see : )


Have a great weekend to all


Shelly

Hi girls! Happy Monday!

Hi Kim - good to see you stop in! And Lynn, thanks for the blog info - I can't even figure that out, lol. Ive noticed that even if I have a new blog post up, the thumbnails might not reflect it for day(s) and it looks like I haven't updated. Seems like it has a bit of a delay, and one day it will all make sense to us - LOL!

Birthday bash was a success! Just one boy absent and a house full of rowdy, noisy, happy boys! We did have plenty of sunshine and we had a blast - did a ton of games and played and play some more! They refused to go to sleep though - 2:30 am still chatting! And they were up by 6:45 - yikes! Saturday was a long, long, LONG day - LOL!

Last night, we had a tree fall in our yard, snapping under it's own weight. It was very scary, as my husband had just come in from under that tree 30 seconds before. I know the hand of God was at work there last night! Just gently scooting him out of the way - the aftermath this morning is terrifying to see. Praising God and giving Him the glory!

Good Morning Chickies!




Kim, I hope the blog list thing rights itself, but will keep an eye on your blog even if it is at the bottom of my list.

Shelly, I had to giggle at your mom telling you that you need more practice. Precious story! Having walked memory loss (Alzheimers) with my MIL, I know sometimes laughter is the only way to get through the heartache for those who love the one with the memory loss. Hang in there and enjoy the moments of laughter.

Kelly, oh my! OH MY! To think how bad that could have been. (((HUGS)))

Well, I'm home again from my two trips and lots and lots of meetings. Today I think I'll vegetate. LOL! Actually, I have to run errands and tidy up the house, but other than that I might just hang out in my Working Studio and pet my toys.

Our town's fall festival starts today, but we won't go until tomorrow. That's our "routine" so Brock is good with that. We WILL go Thursday and Friday. It ends on Saturday, but Brock and DH will probably go to the Baptist Children's Home Annual Quilt Sale and Fall Festival on Saturday instead - it's about 30-40 minutes from our house. They've gone to it every year since we've lived here.

So, it's a busy week here.

What's everyone else up to???

It rained so much yesterday evening
(and we have puddles to prove it)
so I thought this graphic was very appropriate this morning...

Headed down to the church this morning for a clean up day. We are celebrating our 175th birthday on October 2. I will be chasing down spider webs and dust bunnies today.

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!

Lynn, that's a big milestone for your church... and you'll have it spic and span by celebration time.

Default Hi!

Lynn- that is such an awesome celebration- looking forward to hearing how it goes! That is the same day my son is getting married!


I have not had any time this past week- nutty! I ran my Mother on alot of errands that needed to be done. Plans were to drive her up to my sisters work on Friday. Well, after Ray's baseball game on Thursday, she had a heart episode and ended up in the hospital all weekend. A bit of heart failure aka Congestive Heart Failure. The numbers were high, but she was not even on Oxygen, and when they gave her some diuretic, she was dropping her B/P..... so there is a delicate balance that needs to be found! The doc said she can still go to the wedding, but needs to spend the night in Denver first.

All I have to do for now in regards to the wedding is shoes. I bought a dress online. Mom (remember no filter? ) told me I need to loose 10 lbs....LOL Oh she is a hoot! I am getting my hair colored and highlighted at a salon- only do that on special occasions...and will get my nails done as well.


Hope to get into the craft room this week- I tried to make a baby card for a shower yesterday, but had absolutely NO MoJo!


I have been keeping up with all of your comments here- will try to blog hop/stop tonight! Hope to pick up some inspiration!


Hugs
Shelly

Oh dear, Shelly... sorry to hear of your mom's health scare and hospitalization. Praying for that balance that is needed. I'm glad she won't have to miss the wedding.

Prayers for your mother, Shelly! And praying for blessings on the bride and groom at their upcoming wedding! What an exciting time for your family.

I love fall festivals!! I hope Brock and his dad had a fabulous time, Jeanette!

I have been crazy busy getting ready for a visit this week from my Australian blogging friend, Julie Short (Time to Create). She is going to spend 3 days with me during her month long visit to the US.

I'm leaving tomorrow morning - in the wee dark hours - to head to Indianapolis for the Revive Our Hearts Conference! I am so excited!!! Nancy Lee DeMoss (who is now Nancy DeMoss Wolgemoth) is my most favorite national Women's Bible Study leader. Woo Hoo!!!

Sooooo... FYI - I won't be on SCS after today - until next Monday.

Dashing through today (so no time to chat), as we are leaving as soon as Brock gets on the bus. We have an appointment a little over an hour away - to pick up my new car!!!





I hope everyone had a great weekend... I've had a fantastic time since I was last here. The True Woman Cry Out Conference was AMAZING!!!

So glad the conference was everything you hoped for and more, Jeanette! We all need those mountain-top experiences from time to time to refocus and restore.

Tell us about your new car!! How fun is that!!??


My final task at the church this week to be ready for the 175th bash is touch up painting in the halls. I would have finished it on Saturday, but the paint didn't match and has to be remixed. Will try again today.

Lynn, Hot Sauce is beautiful! She's a 2017 VW Jetta - has way too many features (since DH thought I needed them. LOL! He worries about me when I'm on the road - I go most places alone... even drove to New England alone this summer - 1300 miles). He chooses the features/specs; I choose the important stuff - COLOR! I told him it HAD to be red!!! BTW, there's a picture of her on my blog today.

GOOD MORNING!!! I'm kinda back. Had to cut our road trip short due to a medical problem with my daughter in law. She's breast feeding got clogged ducts whiich turned into multiple abscesses that became serverly infected which had to be drained surgically which turned into MRSA. OY VAY! So we had to zoom on home to get the grandkids. DIL is still in hospt but getting better and the sudden job of taking care of 3 kids is exhausting. We have to cart the 8 and 5 yr old to and from school and CCD and then there's the 6week old who's on a snackers feeding schedule. She's not a big crier but whines to eat every 2-3 hrs and then only wants about 2oz before she passes out again or just refuses to eat any more. Then 2 hrs later she starts all over again. OMG....there is a reason we don't start familys at this age........IT WIPES US OUT!! lol I know its only temporary but I swear all I do from 6am to 10pm is cook, feed, and clean children! I am just too tired to even enter my craft room. I will try to check in on all the blogs between the chores but I want to make a big HELLO shout out to all of you. Hope everyone is doing well and Jeanette I can't wait to take a peek at that new car! Oops.....baby calling...........lol.bye

I know you are going to love burning up the roads in Hot Sauce, Jeanette! Congratulations!

Susan, we were sure lucky to have our kids when we were young. Like you, I could never keep up! My two grandkids are 18 and 20 and they can wear me out pretty quickly. I could never do what you are doing now with yours. It would kill me!


I am so sorry that you daughter-in-law is so ill. I know she wants nothing more than to be well and back with her kids! Sending prayers for healing for her and strength for you! What a great grandmother you are!!!

Good Morning Chickies!






Today is mountain climbing day - how we can accumulate such a mountain of laundry every week to ten days is beyond my imagination. :roll eyes: I need to get it completed and pack my bag today, too, because early tomorrow morning Hot Sauce and I have a road trip - we're going to be gone for a couple of days to our state's Children's Mission Celebration where I'll help with about 100+ children and also teach a break out to the leaders.

So, unless I pop in again later today, I will see you again on Monday! Have a FABULOUS weekend!

Good Morning Chickies!





Susan, I had to giggle at your comment... I, too, love new cars... and I continue to call the car "my brand new car" until the day I get a different one. In fact, we drove my Private Jet to church yesterday (I do the driving)... that's the car we bought 6 years ago. My DH said something about it being my "old car" and I was insulted. I told him it's my "brand new car" and he laughed at me.

Hot Sauce and I had a good trip this weekend - she smells brand new.

Well, I've been gone a few days... and now I'm home for nearly 2 weeks. DH is leaving on Wednesday (for a week) so I will be here with our Brock. We will do well. And DH will have a good trip. I have a To Do list of things I hope to get done while he's gone.

How's everybody doing? Any big plans for this week?

Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

For those of you who may be wondering about our Kelly in light of the pending hurricane that will be bearing down on her area soon... I've had a text from her. She is okay and as ready as one can be for such things as hurricanes. Fuel has been purchased (for all vehicles and the generator), needed groceries are in the house. School is letting out early today so she's making the commute to get her young'ns home... and there is no school for the rest of this week. Please keep Kelly and her family (as well as others who will be impacted by Matthew) in your prayers.

Good Morning to you too Jeanette!! I too will be keeping Kelly in my prayers. Such a horrible stormWell though I'm terribly exhausted from taking care of the grandkids for over a week now I am pleased to say that my DIL is on the mend and my Son finally took his family home. Dr has given her the OK to resume some of her restictions. The most important one being able to lift her 7 week old. And though I have ejoyed being able to care for the grandkids and snuggle with the newborn I am relieved that my daily duties are finished The snuggles I was able to get out of baby Claire was awesome and the bedtime stories were great with the other 2 but I don't think I'd like doing this on a full time basis..LOL I'm too old for that! Occaisional sleepovers will resume later but for now I'm heading up to the cabin for some peace and quiet and to unfortunitlly close it up for the season Makes me sad. But the plus side is that I will be able to spend alot more time with my 4 "Besties" cardmaking and we have a few big projects lined up. We are going to be making a Christmas mini album the 21st! An all day affair so we decided to include a pot luck to get us through the day. Chocolate would have worked too but we thought we may need some real food thrown in there! LOLSo I'll check back in with all of you when I return. Til then stay safe Kelly and everyone else......Enjoy the fall.....pumpkins are everywhere!

Kelly and her family are certainly in my thoughts and prayers this week as they brace for Hurricane Matthew. Having been through several hurricanes in my life, I know how scary they can be.

Praying for safety for all who are touched by this powerful storm.


Susan, I know you must be exhausted. What a wonderful grandma you are to have taken on this daunting task for your son and his wife. Enjoy and relax at the cabin as the season changes and then as you head back home to craft with your friends!


Jeanette, I am afraid that your suitcase might get dusty sitting in the corner for two weeks. I hope you and Brock have a few fun adventures planned!


Our church's 175 Anniversary Celebration was a success, but with all the work involved, I think all are ready to rest a bit. We have a huge church with a small congregation so all had to wear many hats.


Spending this week reorganizing my crafting space to make it more user friendly. Maybe I can stamp ahead on some of my responsibilities.

Here's the Kelly update as of this evening... it's windy... but it looks like the worst of Matthew is going to bypass her house.

Default Hello!

Deep breath and a sigh! I'm back!

Son is married and we got to do a tiny bit of sight seeing. We stayed in a condo with the Schmidt family. Ray's sister fell and broke her ankle severely, so she could not come, so Stephi's friend stayed with us. She was there to watch my Mother.


The wedding was fabulous. They wrote vows to each other, and had a Unity tree with dirt from both parents homes and- a surprise to the bride, they ordered butterflies (monarch's) to let go in memory of loved ones. One dear friend- her 2nd father= let one go in memory of his deceased wife, and it landed on the skirt of her gown, then she picked it up with her finger and it flew onto her sunflower bouquet and then back over the widowed husband before it flew off...... WOW!






This is Grandma and the kids. I love that she grabbed Grandma's hand- she is so sweet!


Grandma did well until the night after the wedding She fell in the bathroom and hit her head. At the airport with my brother- they wiskedher away from them and loaded her into an ambulance- apparently her black eye was suspicious of elder abuse...... She had to have a CT scan and a work-up in a Denver Hospital. Luckily, I had her medical records on a flash drive with me and sent to my brother for the ER staff to review, and they let her go- but they missed their flight...... And, she is OK and back here with me.


Lynn- glad the church celebration went well and is over!


Susan- what a crazy busy week! Poor kid- to be away from the kids and the baby- and to get MRSA- bet she is thrilled to be back home!!! And, how is your son doing???


Hugs to all- happy to have time to blog hop tonight while the Cubs are playing!


Shelly

Oh Shelly... that photo is priceless! I love the gown/jacket! And how sweet to have a loving hand on G'ma! And the sweet monarch story is a WOW moment for sure! Sorry about the tumble and airport issue, though. Must have been stressful for everyone.
