Morning!

Our dogs sleep with their heads off their round pillows all the time. They look so strange. They are too big to be on furniture and not able to jump up now. They both have recovered from torn ACL's, Iris had both back legs and Athena just one.

So nice to hear from you Victoria! Glad you are able to check in with us!

I miss the like button, I forget where I last left off from reading the posts!

Off to get moving, it's laundry day!

My broccoli/cauliflower salad is done and in the fridge. I just finished my apple cake and that's in the oven. DH had a doctor appt and now he should be at his brothers to help work on his snowblower. our doctor moved their office in with another one about 7 miles from the original location because they don't have enough staff to keep their office open right now. So I knocked out his trip on the internet. He did not want to mess with the GPS.

So our GS loves the monster trucks we sent but we didn’t realise that they make roaring noises, they have batteries so the lights flash and roar, our son said after five hours they put them out of the way because it was driving them mad, he said he will bring them to Spain when they get to come over so we can put up with the noise, ha,ha

Good morning! It is lovely and sunny here. I have an adorable dog sleeping on the couch beside me and a kitty in the window sill in front of my craft desk...and I have to go to work. Bummer for me!

Kandie, Honey sometimes sleeps like that on the couch and she has gone over the edge to the floor before too.

Shirl, I'm sorry your birthday meal wasn't the best. I agree with Kandie, 70 is a big deal and you get a do-over!

Vickster! So glad to see you not only on the thread but posting to the gallery. I keep going to leave some love but, on my computer, it still shows image pending approval. I'm not sure what is taking so long, I figured they'd be ready to go this morning. Thank you for the love you left in my gallery.

Jayne, how did you leave love on Vickster's cards? I'm guessing you looked at the small image down below?

Jan, wow, you have an excellent system in place there for birthdays. Well done!

Jan, I used to tell people that if they gave the girls a noisy toy, they would only be able to play with it at the gift giver's house!

Kathy, it sounds like your DH is keeping himself busy.

I need to get off this and get to work. Chat with you later.

Haha. Gramma's are notorious for giving noise-maker toys. Mom and Dad have to designate those as outside only toys. Being parents can be crazy enough - don't need any help.

Yes, he is! The first thing he did was ask me to delete an app they use to communicate at work! Apparently it was dinging while he was hunting the other day. I think he would have stayed longer at work if the boss hadn't started computerizing everything! The week after he left, one if his best work buddies took a new job elsewhere and at the end of this week another guy is retiring. DH would have had 40 years in in September of this year! They loved him down there and I think they will have some troubles filling his shoes. His replacement has already called him with a question. DH likes him and told him to call if he has questions. I hope the replacement guy doesn't get overwhelmed. They hired him as an apprentice to DH but ended up using him in other locations as well so he didn't get as much time with DH as he would have liked

Good morning all!
Sis Vicki, so glad you can pop in now and then. Sorry to hear that you are still suffering from migraines. I tried to look at your cards, but the photo said "pending." No photos so I'll check later today.
Shirl, wine and dessert are the important parts of the meal anyway! Ha ha! You do get to celebrate all month, so perhaps you can have the salmon on another day. I'm sorry about the late card, but I'm not nearly as organized as Jan!
Jan, I always try to organize with lists, but then I get so many lists going that I can't keep track of them all. Like Shirl said, with adding an ef to your GS's gift, "you are a crafty crafter." Good thinking!
Catherine your tag is so pretty!
Hello to Sharon, Ann, Kathy, Shelly, Annette, Kelly and anyone else I missed.

I have a job interview on Zoom at noon for an Adult Education Teacher position (16 to 20 hours a week). I'm nervous as I haven't interviewed for over 20 years! Also, I'm not sure if I want to work again, but what's meant to be will be, I guess.

Good thinking Kathy about taking out the batteries on the monster trucks.

The job interview went well, my old brain kicked into gear and it was fine. I don't think I'd like it though because they are meeting in person and it is all year long. I need my summers off to go back to our cabin in Wisconsin. I asked Tom if he thought I should do it for a couple years and just fly to Wis. once a month, but he didn't think that was a good idea. He said he doesn't mind when I go early to Arizona in the fall when he's hunting, but I guess he'd miss me if I was in Arizona all summer! I was surprised. I thought he'd welcome the break! LOL

Sharon, I found a letter opener I have been looking for. I'm thinking you made it, but I can't remember! Do you remember making a letter opener. It may have been a prize from a thread. I has beautiful beads on the handle. I couldn't find it so I bought a cheap plastic one for $0.97 at Walmart last week and then just now found this one finally!

No, I don’t remember making it. But my memory is terrible! LOL. I am pretty sure, though that I didn’t.

It was several years ago. I'm thinking it was a prize from a participating in a thread but my memory is horrible too. Whoever made it put it in a nice box and mailed it to me. It was long before my alpha group friends.

My hands are getting worse today. I am not holding my tablets now. I'm thinking they may be part of the trigger finger. I'm heating up my wax hand bath right now. Going to dunk them in the wax after bit.

Kathy, I'm glad your DH is enjoying his retirement. Wow, 40 years working for one employer is an accomplishment - as is 39 years. That doesn't happen so much these days. I am sure you are right that they will have a hard time replacing your DH and all those years of experience! I'm sure the replacement is thankful your DH told him that he can call if he needs to.

Sorry your hands are doing worse today and praying the wax bath helps them feel better.

Gracie, if you were to take this job, what would you be teaching? I'm glad your DH would miss you if you took it!

I'm so thankful that doing the month end process for December went smoothly this time! Well, I'd better get off here and get to doing chores.

Catherine, I would teach adults who are trying to get their GED. I'm not going to accept the job. If I had summers off so I could go back to Wisconsin for 3 months, I'd do it. It would probably kill my mother if I didn't come home for the summer, also, that's time for me to be with my grandchildren. I thought that maybe it would be online tutoring so I could teach from any where. Like DH says, maybe something else will come along more suited to our schedule. I don't really want to work too much, but I wouldn't mind a couple days a week. It was an interesting opportunity to check out anyway.

That would have been cool, Gracie, though I don't know how you would fit it into your schedule! Too bad they don't stop for the summer, a little crafty spending money!

Hello, Alpha Sisters,
As some of you may know, I have been helping Linda get back into crafting and fulfilling her mission to make cards. I found that Linda was kind of overwhelming in the ways she was requesting cards so we had a good "talk" (SCS and private PMs) and came up with what we hope is a more workable system. I will be helping Linda make more focused requests for birthday cards. You can see the new format on post #1249 and #1277 I have some stamping questions and thoughts by hotwheels at Splitcoaststampers

Linda is hoping that "helpers" might be able to make a card or two and mail the completed cards to her to distribute. Additionally, if anyone has any generic birthday cards that haven't found a home yet, Linda is happy to receive them to give on her charity projects.

When Linda and I work together to create a card for challenges or birthdays, she is giving me her ideas for theme, colors, design, techniques. I do my best to create something that matches her vision. I have given Linda permission to post these cards in her gallery as her own creations, with acknowledgement of me as her crafting buddy. I consider myself the hands to do the cutting, coloring, gluing and such to bring her ideas to life. It is a different and fun way for me to create, too.

So, that about covers it. I welcome any questions or ideas to help us be a better team.

Gracie well done on the interview, I don’t blame you for not wanting to miss your summers with family, steve wouldn’t want me being away either, we spent too many months apart in our first ten years while he was in the army,

Morning!

Wow, Gracie, that would have been some job, so glad you didn't take it so you can come home to Wisconsin!

Catherine, I can envision those two cute animals of yours sitting by your desk! Hard to leave them, just like kids!

Sonja, so happy to hear from you! You are doing a wonderful think for Linda!

Victoria, happy to see you posting too!! Been too long that you have been gone from all of us!

Kathy, hard to believe he is retired now! 40 years, wow! I remember you talking about his retirement coming and bingo here it is! Time seems to be moving faster lately!

Got to run, dogs are calling to me, or barking their heads off! They want breakfast!

Default Hello

Happy Tuesday- yes Ann, time sure does seem to fly even though we are stuck at home!

Today is a stamping day and I have a list a mile long of cards to make! First off, a 50th Anniversary card for Rays brother and SIL. They were married young : ) I think they were still in High School.

I love the pics and thoughts of all of the sweet pups and cat sleeping with their heads handing off the edge of the bed- I do not remember our dog doing that.

Our self quarentine after travel is over, and I am enjoying staying at home- cooking out of the freezer and using up veg's . I have been a bit creative and love staying in- other than a hike through the Forest Preserves nearby.

Jan- too funny about the noisy toy. I have to admit, I am notorious for sending noisy toys. They did not bother me when I had younger kids. Happy Actual Bday to Steve : )

Victoria- sorry about those headaches, and so happy to see you dropping in!

Gracie- that job sounds very rewarding, but no summers off??? The students go year round??? That is a pretty huge commitment! Glad you will be aboe to head to Wisc for the summers!

Off to create- have a fab day everyone!!!

Shelly

My trigger finger is stiff this morning but I'm hoping that by making adjustments to how I hold the tablet will allow it to heal. I don't hold the tablets now. I lay them on my lap or put them on a little stand. I bought several stands at dollar tree.

I made broccoli cauliflower salad yesterday. I forgot how much I love that stuff but was reminded when a friend made it last week. She made me hungry for it so I bought the stuff and made a batch. It's so simple and not very many ingredients because I don't like or add raisins. I just put in broccoli, cauliflower, bacon, and shredded mozzarella cheese. I add the cheese as I eat it because it gets soggy.

Glad you found some stands to use for your tablet. Hopefully, that will help with your trigger finger Kathy. That salad sounds yummy.

Have fun creating today, Shelly.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning! I stayed up way too late last night getting some things done around the house that I had been procrastinating on. Now I need to get the grading done (that yes, I've been procrastinating on too...no, I haven't, I had to go out of state, but, yes, I have). Is that thoroughly confusing?! Welcome to the world of my brain! LOL

Gracie, I'm guessing that the classes keep rotating students, not that you have one class year round (unless they really struggle with learning the language). When I was in France going to school, I had an older American gentleman who was trying to learn French and struggled so much with it. I'm not sure whatever happened to him. He was supposed to go teach - in French - in a college somewhere on the continent of Africa. I don't think he was going to get it though.

Jan, happy birthday to Steve!

Vickster, I was finally able to comment on your lovely cards. So nice to see your creations in the gallery again!

That sounds like a tasty salad, Kathy. I hope the stands help with your hands feeling better.

I need to run, check in later!

Yes, Jan, happy birthday to Steve!

Kandie and Gracie thanks for your thoughts on the do over. Ha, I don't think I mentioned getting a glass of flat champagne at first either, LOL!

Asking for prayer for my sil, Wendy. My brother Bruce said she is comfortable and in no pain, but does not want to eat anything and is sleeping most of the time.

Thanks
Shirl

My hands are getting worse today. I am not holding my tablets now. I'm thinking they may be part of the trigger finger. I'm heating up my wax hand bath right now. Going to dunk them in the wax after bit.
Kathy, I'm pretty sure the letter opener was made by me!! I remember making several for the group back then!

Thanks Vicki! I remember you were on those threads back then. I love that letter opener and so glad I just found it and now I'm even happier that the mystery is solved of how I got it!

How did you get the picture uploaded? I can't upload anything except to my gallery right now. Mine is just like that but not blue. They are gorgeous!
