Default Let's converse alphabetically

After I finish this post, the next participant should start their post with the letter 'B'. It can follow the context of the previous post or feel free to embark upon a new subject. The alphabet will restart upon reaching the end of the alphabet.

The more challenging letters such as Q and X aren't to be skipped.


Ready?

Be prepared to keep the conversation flowing. Happy Mother's Day to all those moms out there! Hope all the ladies get the "day off" and are pampered a little bit. What are you doing today?

Challenge accepted! Enjoying a quiet day after a busy week. Laundry is (always) on the agenda but also some Crafting (organizing most likely).

Does seem as though laundry always needs to be done.

Slowly but surely I'll get my sister's nursing graduation card finished and in the mail so that she'll have it by Friday.

Every day, there's more dirty laundry! That's for sure.

Congratulations to your sister, Roberta! A nurse's degree is quite a feat.

What's ahead this week?

Finding enough employees that will stick - seems to be the name of the game around here.

Giant task these days. Hard to foster loyalty. Everyone wants instant gratification. Technology has made our lives better, but has "spoiled us" at the same time.

Jumpin' junipers! I also have a birthday card to make for the same sis that's graduating. That one may be late...

Now I'd probably start with a special occasions card such as a birthday or a graduation. Or if you're really trying to get ahead of the game, Christmas cards, Arlene.

We're almost to the end of this set of the alphabet. But we'll keep right on going!

Xylophone cards are fun to make. A good way to use up scraps, too. You can use rainbow colors or a variety of tones in the same color.

We are almost through the Alphabet. That is true.

Zealous I am for using up scraps; I get so many of them!

We finished the alphabet - now it's time to begin again!
Who's first?

Finally back home after 5 weeks. My granddaughter gave birth to a "one month old" - or so said her doctor when he arrived. He weighed in at 10 pounds, 5 ounces. I stayed to help her and keep up with my 4 1/2 year old great granddaughter.

Hard to believe, but his was born naturally! DGD insisted on no drugs.

Joyful news Joyce Ann! A new grandson. What a blessing. He was a big one. I'm surprised that the doctor didn't know that and induce her early. Sounds like she did okay. Congratulations!

Kitchen chores are done, house is as picked us as it's going to be, trash at the street, its time to go say good night to my great grand son. Diane,granddaughter was 5 days late, doctor thought he was going to be smaller so her choosing not to be induced was acceptable. If she had been induced she couldn't have avoided the drugs as Pitocin is too painful to refuse other drugs.
