Good Morning to all of you! Happy Friday. I am still trying to work out the oven at church fiasco. Many phone calls, meeting repair guys at the church Wednesday and again this afternoon, and I still am not sure it will be fixed. We have Apple Fest on Sunday--a turkey dinner is a huge part of the festivities, but our organist who is the caterer, has a plan B in place already! We may decide to not fix it depending on the cost and just get a new one--one that works from the get-go!


I hope you have a Wonderful Weekend!!!!!

Hi fellow addicts

I have spent the day in the garden - managed to finish weeding one totally, (that I had started yesterday) and turn over the vegetable garden too. Oh and I also got three coats of paint (2 undercoats and one top coat) on a part wall that has been waiting to be painted since we had the toilet totally replaced way back in June - I wanted the weather warm enough to be able to have the house open for the day before I started painting. One more top coat to go.

Apart from that it's just been life as usual. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some stamping done in the afternoon. We have hospital appointments galore over the next few weeks, and then DH's son, his wife, three adult children and two grands (DH"S Great grands) will be coming over from Australia for a weekend in the middle of next month.... talk about needing elastic walls!!



Waving from down under to you all.

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!





I really do have Friday on my mind...
because on Friday
(while I'm in Branson for my family trip - my parents, sister and I)
my sister and I will be taking a few card classes with the LSS there.
The classes sold out early -
but that's okay because we signed up early.



Barb, how did the turkey dinner go? Was the oven in working order in time???

Maxine, wow! That garden stuff is a lot of work. I hope you didn't over-do. And then all the other stuff on your schedule, too. You were busy!

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

Good Morning Ladies--Happy Monday Morning!!!!! It was a good weekend here in Wisconsin!

We did not get the oven fixed and the plan now is to get a new one from a local appliance store. Apple Fest went well and the turkey dinner was perfect! We won three silent auction items too, so the entire event was successful! We had company from Chicago Friday night and Saturday-and we played baseball in the yard--in honor of the Cubs! It was a beautiful day yesterday and we got quite a few things accomplished outside yesterday.

Today is stamping time--YAY! I hope you have a Marvelous Monday too!

Glad to hear everyone is keeping busy. Sorry I've been MIA. Went out to lunch Friday with a GF and ended up with food poisoning. You know where I spent my birthday night. Not fun. I've been sick and weak ever since and can barely be out of bed. I had to go to Petmart today to get canned food for the kitties. They all share a can every morning and I was out. I also remembered that my low tire pressure light came on Friday so I had to go by the tire place and get air. He said the left rear one was lower than the others so I need to take it to the dealer. I don't know how I managed to get those done, I couldn't even take my shower with out almost passing out. I was finally able to eat real food more than toast, but even though I feel hungry, nothing sounds good. Also not the way I want to lose 5 pounds.

Oh Maggie that sounds horrible - nothing worse!!

No Jeanette I did not overdo it - love being in the garden, and had some more time there yesterday and today - not long today as the rain stopped me . Thankfully this week's appointment is on Friday so I have a few day's grace from travelling to Hamilton.


Barb that sounds as though you had a great weekend


Kelly I hope I glimpse you again soon as you fly by


Kel are you still on planet earth, or have you been going so fast you have gone into orbit??


Kristie you sound as though you lead a really busy life too.


Lynne it's always great to see you when you pop in - I hope your back is improving now


Darlene you are in my prayers - hoping to see you again soon too.


Hugs to you all from down under

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!





Maggie, that was NOT a nice birthday surprise. I'm so sorry you've been so sick. Hope you're all better soon!!!

Maxine, I'm glad you didn't over-do and in fact enjoyed playing in dirt. I certainly would not have.

THANK YOU so much for the birthday cake and fun greeting! I {heart} you!

Thanks for the birthday greeting, Maggie! No worries about a birthday card. I am terrible and very rarely send any birthday cards at all other than the BRAK ones.

I sure hope you're feeling better soon. That was a horrible bout of food poisoning.

Just thought I'd share a couple photos of this cute little new butterfly that I found in my backyard yesterday when I was out for just a few minutes to release 2 Monarchs. This is from the Skipper family and I"m showing you the not so good one on the Shepherd's Crook when my hummingbird feeder hangs, which by the way, the honey bees are feasting. I wanted you to see the contrast in size.

Good Evening Fellow Stamp Addicts... I'm leaving in the wee hours of the morning to go out-of-state to spend a few days with my parents/sister. Therefore you won't be seeing me for a while.


... see you next Monday!

Default Hi!

Waving hello- had to go back and catch up- geepers- did not seem like a week since I posted....!

My Mom did some water coloring- she drew a sunflower and used a variety of my supplies to color it in. We folded it and made a large card out of it, and she sent it to my Uncle (her brother with leukemia). He has been in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks, another 2 expected....more aggressive chemo.


I managed to make 2 Halloween cards for the day care Mom goes to- 20 card kits for 2 separate cards. My sister asked me to make some for her facility, so I made 15 more of just one of the cards.

Tomorrow after Mom's PT, we will head to my sisters Adult Day care for Dementia/Alzheimers patients and plan to stay for the afternoon. Mom will then have a sleepover with Eileen for the weekend- she will get to see my sis' Grandson too- which she just loves.

I will have 3 days off to chill! Hubby is going to try to get Cubs tickets for Friday or Saturday..... I am not going into that crazy mess and the tickets will be off the charts!

We are planning to go to Va 11/10 weekend to visit Stephi and Mom wants to come, so will bring her along. I am hoping for beautiful scenery and not too cold of weather. Stephi has a field trip to view some Gardens, so is checking to see if we can also come along.

I am flying to Dallas the first week in Dec with Mom to take her to my brothers for the winter. They are so fun and funny that I may decide to move there for the winter as well......

We decided to go to the Grand Canyon over Christmas, so that is in the works as well. My son is going to meet us there, and the girls will also fly out- thrilled that we will all be together : )

Back is calming down= Yeah!

Waving hello to all- will try to visit before another week goes by!

Shelly

Good Morning Friends--Happy Friday! We are heading out of town for a long weekend with some friends. We "won" this at a humane society fund raiser last March and have three days at a beach house (it was not able to be rented in the summer........) along with a chef prepared dinner at the house tomorrow night. We will not be back until later Monday afternoon. I will spend some time in the stamp room today.

Have a great Friday, a fun weekend, good luck to the Badgers, Packers and Cubs--and Happy Halloween too!!!!!! See you all Monday Evening!

Today cleaning and getting laundry done- Cubs play tonight again- need a miracle .......


Hoping all is well with everyone!

Morning girls - it's Monday morning here and sunny - woohoo!! Sun seems a rare commodity these days... The only thing any way related to craft I did over the weekend was help DH paint some trellis for the garden, replacing some that has rotted.

There was some sunshine, enough to get a touch of burn on one shoulder...

Hope you all have, have had a blessed Sunday.

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!






Shelly, it sounds like your life is so organized and productive. I love reading your posts.

Maxine, I hope you're still enjoying the sunshine!

Barb, I know you're enjoying being a beach bum!

My trip was good and we enjoyed just hanging out at the rented condo... but also went to two shows, my sister and I took some card classes, and we ate out way too much. (My mom does not want any of us to cook while we're there so even though we have a GREAT kitchen in the condo... we go out.

FYI - I am leaving in the wee dark hours of morning - DH and Brock are going, too, this time. We are heading to Chicago for our Convention's Annual Meeting. Then we will head north to Wisconsin to spend a couple of days visiting DS. Soooooo.... (you know what's coming).... I will be MIA again. If I don't pop back in later today, I'll see you next week here in the threads. Have a great week!

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

Happy Halloween, to those celebrating. We are ALL going to be together tonight - practically unheard of for us! All 6 of us, plus the two boyfriends - we'll be out walking about and enjoying the neighborhood and treats! The oldest girls and their boyfriends are wearing matching costumes and look adorable

My daughter finished her performance with the local theater company and was absolutely amazing. It was fun to watch her. She'll be back in another lead in a few months and just comes alive in stage ♥ My son, on the other hand, is in 2 shows this week at his school in drama (the aristocats) - I'll miss one of those as dd has Jury Duty! First time ever and she's not going alone, as it's at the old Miami courthouse downtown, far away in and in a crime infested neighborhood. We had little man's spaghetti dinner for Scouts last week (I love it when people tag me on Facebook and I look my absolute worse, LOL! You may have seen me, slathered with sauce and an exasperated look ) We had just had dd17's fall chorus concert and dinner and now we're turning around and doing a spaghetti dinner ..... it's just too much. We donate, cook, serve ............ joys of having multiple kids in schools and activies, hee hee!

I wish I had more time to devote to stopping in and keeping up to date. My kids are wearing me down with the school commutes. It's 5.5 hours a day - on the road, stuck in traffic! The over development in this area has people with no way in and out and we're ALL trying to get to the same major artery roads. The kids schools are 20 minutes away!!! And it takes me 2.5 hours in the morning, 3 in the afternoon - every day! Yeah ... I'm tired, LOL!

Everyone seems to be doing well and busy, too ............ I'll wave and try to stop in this week!

Hugs!

Just checking in. My internet service has been out for a few days but they finally got it fixed today. Something to do with the cable line going into the house. Who could ever understand all that anyway.
I didn't try to read back through all the posts but hope everyone is doing good.
All's about the same here. I feel like I'm walking a tiny bit better now but still having to use the walker of course. Thinking about decorating it for Christmas! LOL! I'm being scheduled for the last epidural steroid injection sometime this week or next. It has to be cleared with insurance and all that first. Hopefully after that I'll be even better and can maybe get in PT. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Good Morning Ladies--Welcome to November where it is to be 70 degrees at my house today! Such is weather in Wisconsin.......

We had a wonderful weekend. We went out for a fish dinner at a place close to where we were staying and it was awesome. Very crowded and I am so glad we had reservations. They had many different kinds of fish on the menu and it was soooooo good! Saturday we went for a couple of walks in the neighborhood and many of the house were decorated for Halloween. Saturday night a local chef and owner of a winery came to the house we rented and made an incredible gourmet dinner with wine pairings--it was Outstanding!!!!!! Incredible flavors of the food and some great wines too! And, we were able to watch the Badgers win in overtime too!

On Sunday, we went for another walk in town. One of the couples went home in the afternoon and the four of us left went to another friends to watch the Packer game--the TV at the beach house was very, very small, so we enjoyed the game--though a loss--on a larger TV. We stayed Sunday night at the cottage, had a nice breakfast at a quaint coffee shop in town and headed home in the late morning.

Today I am cutting the grass as it is to rain tomorrow. I also borrowed an aerator and can then do that later in the week after the rain. I also have a swap to organize and swap out.

Have a Fantastic Tuesday!

My Mom did some water coloring- she drew a sunflower and used a variety of my supplies to color it in. We folded it and made a large card out of it, and she sent it to my Uncle (her brother with leukemia). He has been in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks, another 2 expected....more aggressive chemo.

I managed to make 2 Halloween cards for the day care Mom goes to- 20 card kits for 2 separate cards. My sister asked me to make some for her facility, so I made 15 more of just one of the cards.

Tomorrow after Mom's PT, we will head to my sisters Adult Day care for Dementia/Alzheimers patients and plan to stay for the afternoon. Mom will then have a sleepover with Eileen for the weekend- she will get to see my sis' Grandson too- which she just loves.

I will have 3 days off to chill! Hubby is going to try to get Cubs tickets for Friday or Saturday..... I am not going into that crazy mess and the tickets will be off the charts!

We are planning to go to Va 11/10 weekend to visit Stephi and Mom wants to come, so will bring her along. I am hoping for beautiful scenery and not too cold of weather. Stephi has a field trip to view some Gardens, so is checking to see if we can also come along.

I am flying to Dallas the first week in Dec with Mom to take her to my brothers for the winter. They are so fun and funny that I may decide to move there for the winter as well......

We decided to go to the Grand Canyon over Christmas, so that is in the works as well. My son is going to meet us there, and the girls will also fly out- thrilled that we will all be together : )

Back is calming down= Yeah!

Waving hello to all- will try to visit before another week goes by!

Shelly
Sounds like you've been keeping really busy Shelly and have a lot more coming up. Glad you're able to enjoy the time with your mom. Yes, Winter in Dallas should be pretty good although it can get cold up there. Doesn't look like it will be any time soon though.

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas and glad that your back is doing better.

Hope you all have, have had a blessed Sunday.
Glad to hear that DH is moving forward and getting into fixing things up. Hope you have more sunshiny days coming.

My daughter finished her performance with the local theater company and was absolutely amazing. It was fun to watch her. She'll be back in another lead in a few months and just comes alive in stage ♥ My son, on the other hand, is in 2 shows this week at his school in drama (the aristocats) - I'll miss one of those as dd has Jury Duty! First time ever and she's not going alone, as it's at the old Miami courthouse downtown, far away in and in a crime infested neighborhood. We had little man's spaghetti dinner for Scouts last week (I love it when people tag me on Facebook and I look my absolute worse, LOL! You may have seen me, slathered with sauce and an exasperated look ) We had just had dd17's fall chorus concert and dinner and now we're turning around and doing a spaghetti dinner ..... it's just too much. We donate, cook, serve ............ joys of having multiple kids in schools and activies, hee hee!

I wish I had more time to devote to stopping in and keeping up to date. My kids are wearing me down with the school commutes. It's 5.5 hours a day - on the road, stuck in traffic! The over development in this area has people with no way in and out and we're ALL trying to get to the same major artery roads. The kids schools are 20 minutes away!!! And it takes me 2.5 hours in the morning, 3 in the afternoon - every day! Yeah ... I'm tired, LOL!

Everyone seems to be doing well and busy, too ............ I'll wave and try to stop in this week!

Hugs!
So glad to hear from you Kelly. Sounds like you are really, really busy with family stuff. I hope DH stays safe when he's off to jury duty.

Sorry I've been MIA all this week. Work has been busy and not. I had a few projects here that I needed to work on and I've been getting to bed a little earlier than usual. I'm feeling a lot better, but still having a few issues.

I did make it to my chiropractor appointment on Monday. It's doing a little better, but still sore when I bend those fingers.

Today my sister and I were finally able to meet up for our birthday lunch. It was so nice to catch up with her and what she's been doing. I have one more birthday lunch on Thursday. It's going to be a little weird. Our receptionist is taking me. We're good friends, but she's also good friends with the paralegal that I work with that I don't get along with. We both kind of felt that she had to be invited since she eats lunch with Melody every day.

I'm still fighting the AT&T battle. They sent a tech out on Saturday who was terrible. He didn't do a thing except talk down to me and basically told me that my house was a fire hazard and could catch fire at any time. He said that the problem I've been having was because the house wasn't grounded. I talked on Sunday to a guy I know at church who works for AT&T and he said that when they install the service, they ground it, so that should not be a problem. They are sending another "senior" tech this coming Saturday. I told them that this was the last chance. If they can't get it fixed, I'm going to check out other services.

Happy TOOS-day!

I was super excited to drive through 'Bux today and get that gorgeous GREEN holiday cup! It's beautiful! There was a huge twitter explosion of ugliness about them not 'being red' - oh boy! I tweeted out that I thought it was a nice nod to unity, especially with the artists drawing of 'togetherness' in the faces .... and I was humbled and excited to see Starbucks retweeted it and liked it! Gahhhhhhhhhh!
Yes, I'm a huge fan ........ lol. Oh, and the red cups will be back next week!

Lynn, good to see you - though your walker comment has me thinking of those Art Impression ladies, LOL!!!! Your walker would be the talk of the town! Feel better ♥

Maggie, that baby kitty of yours ......... oh my! 3 weeks is so young! Do you have to feed it with the dropped, every few hours - or did you give it to someone to take care of until it's older? What a sweet, sweet kitty! And you are quite the conundrum with the cable of yours. And mighty very scary to hear someone say the house could go up in flames! Praying you get the right answers.

I took my baby girl to vote today .......... her first time voting. And Thursday, first time being at jury duty! Busy week!

Hugs!
