Okay, Forest Friends... I have to go sort a mountain of laundry and get it started. (It's been nearly 2 weeks and we are almost out of clean clothes). They are flushing our water lines tomorrow, so I need to get it finished today, since they warn there might be some discoloration to the water for a day or two after the flushing - advised us not to do laundry until the discoloration had a chance to dissipate.

I'll BBL!

Years ago my sister's good friend was shot and killed by her ex-husband. She and her baby were living with her parents, had a restraining order and he broke into the house she excaped and was running away from the house with the baby in her arms when he shot and killed her. She was the only child of elderly parents and the court took the baby and put her up for adoption. Her parents not only lost their only child they lost their grandchild too. So tragic!

GOOD MORNING, FOREST FRIENDS!

YAY! OUR FOREST RANGER AND FEARLESS LEADER IS BACK! WELCOME HOME, JEANETTE! Yikes! Your schedule has me exhausted just reading it! I guess you're going to have to give up sleep for the next 3 weeks. It's the only way I can see you getting it all done.

Pansy, gorgeous cards!

Hi ladies, sad story, it happens way too much.

Such a busy weekend. We went to Boston on Saturday am for Family weekend, stayed overnight and got back last night around 7. I was surprised that there were really very few parents there, kind of sad. We did most things by ourself, but did go to Bingo/Ice cream social Saturday night. Two out of three kids were happy because they won exactly what they wanted. My dd9 wanted the Angry Birds space game and she was the third one to get Bingo and she got it. dd18 wanted a pair of school sweatpants and she won 3 games later and swiped a pair. dd13 was hoping for a Chipolte gift card, but she didn't get a win. So all should be happy, we went to Chipolte for lunch yesterday so even though she couldn't pay, she still got her meal.

Off to make some cards for swaps due.........in two days, Yikes. Bye

Hello everyone!
Barb: sounds like a productive day today.

Such tragic stories shared. So pointless and sad.

Makes me glad for the antics between Barb & Jeanette and the fun pictures share each day by Janet - and thankful for the words of wisdom posted by Lynn! Helps to keep the balance!

Pansy: those two cards are gorgeous.

Hi Forest Friends... sorry I poofed!

I've completed about 2/3 of the laundry and am still chugging away at it.

I also complete projects for three of my design teams. Whew! That's good.

Ran an errand, too.

Now it's about time to cook supper. DH needed a bit more time, so we're not eating until 6:30 tonight.

Welcome, Kathryn!!! ♪♪♪ So glad you're here... please feel free to chat with us as little or as much as you'd like.

Judy, that is so sad! How very horrible, in fact!

Linda, I love Chipotle! I am glad your DD got to eat there even if she didn't win the gift card. I went to Chipotle Saturday. Yum!!!

Darlene, you are so sweet!

Janet, love the bling and reminder that we don't have Monday again for a week.

Barb, did you get inky??????????

no--not inky. Ran errands, did the lawn seeding thing, planted 89 tulip bulbs (and have that many more to go) and then it started raining. It still is raining so that is good those two things got in before the rain. I had a massage this afternoon and did some shopping.

Wow, I haven't been on for a week because Chemo had me down, and it took me 1/2 hour to go through all of the posts!!! I feel like I missed a lot. I'll have to do better at keeping up so I can join in on all the fun chatter. It was a beautiful day up here in the Northeast. The trees are just so colorful and I love the crisp weather. I feel blessed to live where we have seasons because I just love them all!!! Not so crazy about snow though. I always look forward to the first couple snow falls and then I'm ready for spring. Hope everyone had a good Monday.

Hi Friends...home from work, pizza is in the oven. We took Olive to the pumpkin patch today, it was lots of fun.

I also met my new little person that I will be taking care of starting in January. She was born last week. Cute as a button.

Glad everyone has had a good day. Exercise class went well. Fast trip to Walmart for the three basic food groups,,,milk, ketchup and mustard and some baby wipes for my stamps. then home to shower and disappear for the day....I finished my first uni-keeper having to measure and jot down steps and so forth...now only 12 to go...I picked out papers and cut the pieces so assembly should go a bit faster than today...Then I cut papers for 32 checkbook covers. So hopefully tomorrow I can finish most of one of those sets of projects. Then to begin gathering for the photo weekend retreat that I an chairing....it is held at the camp we use for our summer teen camp which means taking along bedding, towels and so forth.....but it should be fun though the weather guys are calling for highs only in the 50's.....good thing I am making lots of homemade hot chocolate mix to take along......
won't be home till sunday late and then it will be time to gather for our hopefully successful trip to Bosque to capture the cranes.........

Hi Forest Friends. Supper is over; the kitchen cleaned. DH is watching the debate; I am not. LOL!

Pam, I'm sorry you have to have chemo and that it wears you out so much. Please don't try to catch up reading here... we'll fill you in on anything important. And if something doesn't make sense (because you didn't read the beginning of the conversation, etc) just ask. We want the forest to be a fun/relaxing place, not a stressful place!

Pansy, wow! You have been busy. Impressive!!!

Carol, so good to see you. How exciting to have your DD getting married and getting to do a lot of the preparations yourself. You're amazing!

Lynn, DH bought me Microsoft Publisher last year, which has calendar skeletons on it........ the dates and such. But I have to do all the other stuff. Guess that means it's not entirely from scratch. Sorry! He's pressuring me... so I really need to get to work on it.

Michelle, how fun to meet your newest little one. I know you are going to be a blessing to that family just as you are to Olive's family!

April, maybe you need to take a nap.

Hugs for all!!!

Forest Friends, I'm out of here for tonight. I will read a bit, then drift off to sleep.

Tomorrow will be another busy day.

I feel like I accomplished quite a bit today... so that feels good.

I am super excited about both of my projects on my blog tomorrow (I have two blog posts) so that's going to make waking up tomorrow so much fun!

I'll see you in the morning!

Hugs!!!

Good morning Forest Friends! I was dreaming that I was getting fired when I woke up this morning. Strangely enough, I was kinda hoping to keep watching the dream to see WHY I was being let go. Oh well, guess it is back to my retirement reality.

Good Morning Forest Friends!

Sorry the rain woke you, Michelle!

April, you're quite funny this morning!

Gael, I'm so glad you are here again... we missed you when you were MIA. Oh, and try to enjoy your "retirement".

Janet, sorry you couldn't sleep.

We actually slept with our windows open all night long - and I'm not freezing this morning. Amazing!

Hugs for all!!!

Hi Forest Friends,

Just stopping by to wish everyone a Happy Tuesday!

It's been a rough morning so far. One of my husbands co-workers texted him at 3 am this morning to see if she could switch her scheduled day off to today instead of Friday as she had been at cornell University Animal Hospital with her Great Dane Bosco. It was over $200 just to walk through the door to be seen, plus all the testing that they did to find out he had air in his GI tract. They didn't know why and wanted $3,000 to keep him overnight in ICU. She then called at 5am to say she had brought him home and would be taking him into her regular vet this morning...

Then my husband and kids were all complaining that they couldn't find socks... Well, if you don't put them in the whites bin to be washed and you just throw them - they get lost and dont get washed...

It has been raining all night here and is continuing to rain. It is so dark outside and gloomy...

Time to stamp to improve my mood (hopefully)

Talking

How cold did it get where you live? Right now it's in the upper 40s here - and it was colder during the night.

I think we've got Indian Summer now - the temps all week will be in the upper 70s - low 80s.
And isn't it odd - as soon as we get home from our trip to the Bahamas, a Tropical Storm Sandy has formed & heading to the Bahamas after going thru Jamaica & Haiti. Glad we're out of that area!! The water was rough enough when we were down in the Carribean.

Heather, I'm sorry your day has started out so rough! Hope it smooths out... And that you get a nap!

Janet, if you we're asking me, it's currently 65 degrees outside and 74 degrees inside with half of our windows open. I'm on the morning commute... Barefoot and no jacket, but long sleeves. I'm a bit chilly! LOL!
