Patti--nice kit and have fun with your Vagabond! I see people buying those at Absolutely Everything all the time--real Tim Holtz diehard fans!

We got a lil' snow last night--some delays around Boston/south shore but just a wet 2-3 inches up here---the strangest thing happened. I had to write a late note for Patrick-he and Tom are meeting with a doctor in Boston this morning (MRI on his elbow)...So I turn my computer on and the "appearance" on the screen is totally different! I ask everyone in the house if they were honkin' around on my desktop after I went to bed...No....We must have had a slight power surge which kicked my computer to its original format of the XP colors? Odd huh? Like the boogie-man came down here and fiddled with my computer! Everything seems to be OK..and I am sooooooo very glad we didn't lose power here. Poor NY/NJ were pounded with snow on top of the infamous "Sandy" storm now...more power outages...more downed trees and electrical lines! If this is any indication of our winter...I think its time to talk about investing in a generator!

Have a great day everyone! I have a car this morning so I plan to run around and get things done--Vickie...I am still working on your package

As you can see in the photos, I don't exactly live in a woodsy area, so for these two to visit so close was amazing!
WOW...very cool Patti!

Hello, Ladies!

Wow, Patti, those deer were making yourself right at home in your neighborhood. Think they decided to head for non-hunting areas until after the season closed? I don't blame them!

Hope all our east coast buddies are doing ok with the latest round of weather! Enough already -- it's time for a break and a bit of Fall weather instead of all this early winter!

I love my Vagabond, not because I am a big Tim Holtz fan but my RA is the worst in my hands and shoulders. My right hand is pretty crippled and cranking the big shot or cricket just plain hurt me so I love just pushing a button and getting die cuts. It is an awesome maching. Patti, you will love it.

Susanne, has Patrick injured his elbo in sports? Hope he doesn't have to have surgery/

Patti, loved your kit. You are going to have a blast with it. The deer are beautiful. I guess they are not such woodsy creatures after all. I think they are beautiful animals.

I've been cooking forever today it seems. Making swiss steak, mashed potatoes and greenbeans for my son's birthday. He ask me to make it for him so how could I say no. I also baked a pineapple upside cake and it is really good. I already tasted it.

Are these ads on SCS driving everyone else crazy. Everytime I scroll down I hit one and have a video going. I've shut it off 5 times just posting this. I think I'll quit.

Linda, the birthday dinner sounds delish!

I'm making vegetable soup today; have the beef on the stove top; it's been cooking for about an hour and needs to cook longer to get some tasty broth and tender meat; will add veggies in about an hour.

Confession...I have a vagabond and it's still in the box; I'm still using my big shot. I also have a spellbinders grand calibur...still in the box. *sigh* no gumption and no counter space to set them up right now. Re-organizing my craftroom is my winter project.

Have a good evening everyone.

Imke--and Vickie-- you both were on my mind today while I lally-gagged around town in craft stores! Thatsa all I am going to say--not even sure if "Lally-gagged" are real words!

Yes we did get snow--but just 2-3 inches--heavy wet snow...the yard still has some but our streets cleared themselves with the warmer temps and rain washed it away...Hard to believe that last night it was 30, tomorrow is supposed to be 59 and Monday (Veteran's Day) they are saying 70 degrees! This is where we see the radar map go wonky--boots to flip flops to boots!

Linda-Patrick plays baseball year round and just in recent months had been complaining about his right "throwing" elbow. Tom got him in to see a fancy-schmany ortho doc in Boston and he initially said it was bruised from the inside out--he ordered an MRI...and today the results were good--just some physical therapy/no surgery! So we need to get him going on that before the spring when the "real" baseball starts up again. He's ok--but because he is such a sports guy--we wanted to make sure he wasn't permanently damaging his elbow by playing non-stop. Thanks for asking

Vickie--I remember when you said you bought the Vagabond and could not wait to open it!!!

I really feel for the NJ/NY crowds w/o power--day 10..and 30,000 more lost it again last night? I have been 5 days in sub zero weather w/o power and it's just not fun--you get so edgy unable to do normal tasks--and every meal has to be out some where...On a lighter note...please go watch the opening of last week's SNL skit with the impersonators of NY and NJ Governor's--and their sign language side kicks..hysterical--it just makes me laugh out loud. go to nbc.com/snl...It is an off-shoot of the real Govenor's speeches with very animated sign language ladies--very funny.

Gosh, I hope Kathy & family are doing Okay..has anyone heard recently? I saw she posted a picture on FB of "Grandpa celebrating the Obama win"...but not much else.

Long weekend here--so I am thinking Shane will be home again!

Deciding on some stamps to use for Christmas cards this year...seems like I collect them all year with wonderful ideas swirling through my head but when it comes time to make a decision...I try to make one and like it then go to the next and when I have four or five I go back and make a few of each. I need to get the first ones made so I know what to take with me to the retreat. Hope to make lots of Christmas cards there!
Imke we'll see how many will fit the challenges.

Hope Kathy can go back home soon.

I sure feel for those in the East Coast. Crazy weather. We are having great weather but sounds like it will turn soon. I am definitely enjoying these 70 degree days. Today I am off to get my mammo and then hopefully hit Archivers and a few other stores today. It's a me day which I love. Of course I should be working on projects but there is always tomorrow for that.

haha Susanne! Yes, lally-gag is a word; I learned it from my Mom....stop lollygagging around and get it done! I'm still a lollygagger...when I go to the grocery store it takes me all day because I lollygag around Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Joanns first! LOL

Tracie, enjoy your me day. I hope to have one of those next week to make the trip by myself to Archivers!

We are going to see Flight tonight.

Need to fix a bit of breakfast; hope everyone has a wonderful Friday.

My Mom used the word lollygag to. She was always telling me to quit lollygagging! I say it sometimes myself when I am talking to myself tell me to quit lollygagging and get something done.

Tracie is right, we are having awesome weather as far as temps. We've been 65-70 for about 5 days. Our problem is we have a burn ban because we are desperate for rain. We are 9 inches under our normal, lakes and ponds are way down. There has been rain all around us but misses us.

Hope everyone on the east coast is getting power back. I feel so bad for them. It is just so sad.

Hope all of you have a great day weekend.

Lynne: Yes, I've heard that about geese too.

I grew up in a hunting family. I don't hunt (I burst into tears one time when my dad shot an elk and was banned from further hunting trips) but my dad loved the camping, being in nature, and the thrill of being a provider. I'll eat elk if I have too but I am not a big fan of deer -- I remember walking into the kitchen and always asking WHAT was in the taco meat "moo moo cow?" Gotta say I do NOT miss the days of my dad, grandpa and uncle shooting stuff. I remember spitting buckshot back on my plate during quail season. Bleah.

My house is a holy cow mess. We have a pod in the driveway and are slowly filling with stuff. Gosh there is a lot of [email protected] in my house. I can not wait until this move is just DONE.

QueenieJO--Lynne--When my neighbors moved in next door (Farmer Sharon's family)..the husband Stephen is quite the sportsmen. He does all; fishing, hunting, bird shooting...heck he's the guy the wacked the "crazy woodchuck" in my back yard (that was previously living under their chicken shed!!!

Well, we woke up one morning and saw a deer hanging upside down from outside his garage door! This was back a few years-supposedly "drying him/her out" eeek! Of course Muddy was free to run outside then-the first thing he did was run over, bark at it then lick the drippings (so to say)...I had to ask them to not do that in the front of their house--it must made me so sad--plus made my dog crazy! They have a huge back yard-go hang it there or hang it somewhere else! Not my cup of tea! JO.."buckshot" is?

Off to grab some pizza's...it's Friday night! Yeah!

Sus: Bleah about Muddy! I should talk ... Holli came in yesterday with something in her mouth. When I fished it out, discovered it was the skull bones of a very large rodent. I'm hoping to GOSH that she just found it and did not kill it and eat it. (Huge shudder!) My boys put it in a ziplock bag and were amusing me with their "hypothesis" about how the poor thing was "murdered." Too many episodes of Bones I suspect.

Regarding buckshot ... in the early days of my dad hunting, he used a rifle with these cartridge thingees that had little pellets in them. Sometimes my mom wouldn't get them all out when she was cleaning the birds and one would end up in your mouth. Later my dad switched to a bow and arrow and there was less non-edible in da dinner.

My dad is prolly laughing his behind off at my description on buckshot.

We're having Mexican soup. I accidentally bobbled the chipotle seasoning as I was putting it in. It's likely to be a taaaaaaad spicy!

My Grandfather, Dad and both Sons all hunt and fish and Glenn did too. All my grandsons and nephews do also. I guess Oklahoma is a hunting state. The buckshot is in shotgun shells I think. You use shotguns to shoot quail. I can eat deerburger or the deer tenderloin if it is cooked right but that is it. I love qual. My son had his hunter friend give him some elk and he said it is so much better than deer meat. My son Steve raised his kids on duck, deer, quail, fish and dove. Saved him on groceries and they were used to it. Too much deer is not a good thing for me. Glenn loved to go to Colorado to bow hunt deer.

They are saying it is 72 here at 10:48 pm. Crazy for November. We have had snow befoe Thanksgiving in years past but don't think so this year.

Sherrill has hundreds of pecan trees on her farm and they don't fall until it freezes. I really want a freeze so I will have pecans for holiday candy, cookies and pecan pies.

Have a great Sat.

Linda - I think this is our last good day so I am going to make the most of it. I am so jealous of your pecan trees. I love pecans.

Vickie - Believe me, once you start using your vagabond, you will never go back. Well I do use my Big Shot for embossing but only because I am too lazy to change up my layers to go in the Vagabond.

Patti - Glad you like your package. I know you will enjoy your Vagabond. What a great early gift. Let the die collecting begin! HA!

Susanne - I love your lolygagging. I am the queen of it.

It seems like everywhere I look, there are sales. Is anyone buying any fun craft projects?

Good morning...so glad the weekend is here!

Wow, Patti, amazing pictures of the deer in town...they seemed very comfortable in your yard!

Linda, like Tracie said, I am jealous of the pecan trees. I bought a bag the other day, for $12!!! Ack! Seems like everything at the grocery store just keeps climbing....

Awesome packages arriving!

It is supposed to be warm here today, so we have a lot of things planned. First on the list is Paisley needs a bath! I think I am going to try and wash her tennis balls too...I noticed they are filthy when she was carrying one around in her mouth this morning. She is very good at retrieving them, but doesn't like to give them up....

We say lolley gagging here too! Davis came up with a funny one the other day..."Well butter my bottom and call me a biscuit!". I had never heard that, but Ivy found a picture of a cat on Pinterest with that sentiment. Too funny!
Hope everybody has a great Saturday!

Susanne, here is the recipe you wanted:

Crock Pot Spaghetti:

1 1/2 pounds hamburger or Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
14 oz. jar of pizza sauce
4 cups taco blend cheese
12 oz. pkg Kluski noodles, cooked
jar of spaghetti sauce
4 oz. sliced pepperoni
4 cups mozarella cheese

Layer in order in Crock Pot. Cook on low for 3-4 hours.

I don't know how this would be without the meat. The kids love this; I made it for the volleyball banquet and they asked for it again less than a week later. That time I halved the recipe and baked it in the oven and it didn't taste quite as good...I guess the Crock Pot is magic!

Here is another really good recipe I found on Pinterest!

6 Layer Brownies

1 box Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix, the kind with the chocolate packet
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg

Mix and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, then cover with:

1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup Heath bits
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 can sweetened condensed milk, pour over top

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

These are REALLY good! It says to only butter the bottom of the pan, but you need to butter the sides too. The milk and toffee bits make a hard, sticky mess otherwise. They tend to be a bit hard and chewy on the edges, so watch the cooking time and don't overbake. I overbaked them the first time I made them...still ate them all...but you wouldn't want to if you have a lot of dental work, plus they are hard to cut and get out of the pan. DH hates coconut, but loves these.

Great recipes Angela! Can't wait to try the lasagna (maybe that will be a tomorrow dinner!)

I have become a pinhead....Pinterest is why I don't get much crafting done!! I will say I was pleasantly surprised to see two of my HYCCT cards pinned as hostess favorites!!

No plans today; I have a couple crafting projects to work on. I purchased 2 bugaboo digi stamps yesterday...one I am going to use for Susanne's February 24 Christmas card challenge across the hall!!

Has anyone used the spellbinders A2 Matting Basics dies? I just made a list of spellbinder dies I want to order sometime and am wondering about the matting dies.

Need to fix breakfast...I found the later I have breakfast then I don't want to snack during the day!!

Wishing everyone a super-duper Saturday!

mY WIRELESS keyboard burned out last night-I just bought a new raised wavy keyboard "Ergonomic" my tush!!! My hands are 4" in the air/resting on this platform-I cannot see the home row, let alone get my hands placed correctly because the "B" is on the other side of the split in the middle of the keybbbbbbbbboard! Yeah, I think I am going bbbbavk to Staples to re-buy the other keyboard...this is goofy! Plus, it won't space unless you really clunk down on the space bar...

Vickie--they say have an egg for breakfast and it holds you over all day-less snacking! I eat my breakfast at lunch-because I am never hungry first thing--so I am a meal skipper?

Angela--thanks for the recipes...funny how you pour the sweetened condensed milk over the pile instead of under it? Magic Bars use the sdm as the glue to keep everything on top from falling off the bar-I will try both recipes...Kluski noodles---need to see what these are?

Happy Sunday !!

Vickie- Almost perfekt for your birthday. Have fun !

Good Morning, sounds like you were busy yesterday Imke. It was beautiful here yesterday and would have been a good day to work outside but my daughter and grandaughter stopped by. My grandaughter is going to her first high school dance in a couple of weeks and they thought I might be able to make her dress a little longer. It's really beautiful but a little short...she is a tall girl. Anyway I think black hose will probably do as much good as anything. Of course she wants to wear heels... She is such a pretty girl, can't wait to see her all put together for the dance. I'll take lots of pictures!!
I think I will play in my crafty room today, a co worker needs a new baby card and I have some thank you cards overdue.

Good morning!

Pat, how old is your grandaughter? I hope you will share a picture of her all dressed up.

Imke, you will have to relax and have fun today after your hard work yesterday.

Susanne, the kluski noodles remind me of the frozen egg noodles that you buy. They are thick and a bit chewy (not in a bad way). I think today Ivy is making Caramel Apple cupcakes...one of my friends bought her some fancy fall cupcake wrappers and she wanted to bake some for her. She is also making homemade mac and cheese...she found a recipe for Panera Bread's version...she had it once and it was very good. It calls for white cheddar....

Angie, you and Joanna are not alone...Paisley will also do that! Yuck! She had a bath yesterday...we usually do it at home but they have a dog wash in town here. It is kind of like a car wash...all I know is she came home smelling pretty...then proceeded to go lay in the dirt! LOL

DH and DS ran into my brother this morning. DH says you can see how proud he is of the dog...just like a proud Papa! LOL They had to show him how Paisley can high 5! She likes to sit in the cab of the truck, not in the second seat or in her kennel in back...it's like she thinks she's a person.

Kathleen is home...she posted to her blog...good news!

Had better get busy...I've got laundry started...not too much to do because I did a lot yesterday.

Hope everybody has a super Sunday!

Joanna-Do you want to know what one of my dogs quite frequently has in his mouth? Dog poop. From the other dog, that is. Or any poop, from any source he can find it. Thank God there are no cow patties around here. The two of them are very prolific poopers and we pick it up as soon as possible, but to no avail. The worst is when you let him back in, and he's licking his chops. You just KNOW what he has been eating. And catching a whiff of it on his breath is no picnic, either.
Thankfully, Muddy was never one to do this--although he would not think twice about eating old garbage from outside!!! Makes me think he isn't such a fan of my cooking!!! haha

Pat--they DO grow up huh? One minute we're taking them to preschool and the next off to college with opinions about politics and news! Just this morning Patrick finished off the coffee in the coffee pot---Aaargh...he just started drinking coffee--need to get a back up filter loaded with coffee and ready for when this happens--Nothing worse than waking up to an empty pot of jo!

Angela- I read it on her blog too. Hooray for Kathy and her family ! AND a "Dog Wash" sounds great- it pleased her ? The imagination is kind of funny.

I am working on a new project - i saw it on TV. There were old books, recycled and transformed into a note holder. Super cool. A friend has birthday soon and I think she will be happy to get it ( i hope anyway The sister also has birthday - they are twins, so I probably need to make two.

Pat- How exciting for your DGD- the first high school dance !!

Hey girls!
Yea, we are home! Our furnace wasn't working when we got home, so we had a guy come out Friday. Things are improving here, most everyone has power back. But some areas are just destroyed, I mean houses are gone completely, so scary! There is an area called Union Beach only 8 miles from here and it is devastated. We are trying to organize drops offs etc, for people needing to start over. I was going through all the baby stuff I have, so hopefully it will go to someone in need.

LOL about the dogs eating poop. That is why we don't have one (at least that is what dh always tells the boys)!

Pat, can't wait to see some pics of your granddaughter!

Angela, those cupcakes sound delicious! Sounded like a fun shopping trip for you and Ivy and your parents.

Imke, do you grow vegetable in the winter, too? Our CSA farmer was telling us how the spinach and leafy greens are so much sweeter because of something to do with the frost encouraging release of sugar. Your project sounds so cool. Your friend will love it I'm sure. Make sure and post some photos when you make it.

I've been on a pinterest recipe roll today. I've made homemade granola bars, pumpkin chocolate chip brownies (Susanne the canned pumpkin always makes me think of Muddy!), Martha Stewart's Fleur de sel toffee, and whole wheat bread dough. Think I'm going to finish up the laundry and relax for a while with Finn and Lilah. Chuck took the two bigger ones to a football game (Eagles/Dallas) down in Philadelphia.

Hope everyone has a great rest of today!

Kathleen...<<<>> we have missed you!

We have sent a donation to the Red Cross-hope it helps someone in need! I cannot imagine the loss-seeing the pictures on TV does not compare to seeing real life families that have lost everything! I suggested to Tom that we get some type of "safe box" together for all of our things-policies, credit card #s...birth certificates...etc--we have all that stuff-just not in one place!

Just so happy you are home safe and sound.

Kathy- Im glad you are back home- it also sounds again after everyday !!
We brought our physalis plant (I hope the fruits ripen)and some chilies to overwinter inside. Otherwise, I have no vegetables in winter. Sure you can make it, why not ? But our greenhouse is not heated and i I have no space for it inside

Susanne- I think a "safe box" is super important. We all have all these important original documents in a bank safe. If stolen by a burglar or the house burns down, at least the documents exist. Many find that ridiculous, but it is expensive and requires a lot of time to make documents available again. Do it !
