Good morning! It is sunny and cool here this morning. It finally feels like fall...as it should since it is almost Thanksgiving!

DD2 is at her last day of school before Thanksgiving. She has all of next week off. DH is taking all next week off because he has too much vacation time. I will be off Wednesday-Friday at least, perhaps more. DD1 has college like normal except, of course, for Thursday. But, she works at Starbucks Thursday morning! Can you believe that people get up and go to Starbucks on Thanksgiving morning?! They must or the store wouldn't be open. When DD1 finishes this semester, she has six weeks off before spring semester so she is hoping to work more hours during that time.

Shelly, that little guy sounds like a handful, glad you gave him a timeout! Also glad you saw your sisters and cousin, what fun!

The girls got the idea of a family compound because we have friends who live in the area that have 10 or 20 acres (can't remember which), they lived there with their three kids and her parents as well. Two of the kids have married and live in other states but the youngest still lives on the "compound." Everyone has their own living quarters too. They say that watching your grandkids helps you live longer too!

Gracie, glad you checked on the tracking on your computer. But Monday?! Seriously?!

Um, thanks, Kathy, but no thanks. No skunks wanted or needed here! (We have them anyway....)

Sharon, I'm not sure if there are still fires that they are fighting or not. I haven't heard anything on the radio about it lately so think they must have them out. I don't have TV so don't watch the news there, I get my news from the radio during my commute.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that things sneak up on!

Glad to hear that Victoria's Secret won't be airing their fashion show. I have a friend who has sons who hated it when that would be coming up. He'd be sitting watching some ball game with his sons and a commercial would come on for that. He felt that it was like soft porn essentially and it made it unsafe to watch sports with his sons!

Ann, I love your response to your biter nephew! Glad it cured it! I'm also glad your son got some medication. Falling asleep early is the best medicine for him too.

Ann, that, at made me laugh about your nephew.
About meeting SCSs. I have met Hawaiian, Pat, Kelly (ScrappinCEO), Pansy (C-Mouse), LeeAnn ( a very good friend, N2scrappin, actually met her on here and we got together and have became close), and I met SusieQQue at a stamp party, and Suseiqcat4 at a stamp show. Hawaiian is the only one I met out of state, oh, and my BFF of course, who passed a couple of years ago. She was Farmer Kay
8 that I can think of that I have met. I know there are others here that I have never met.

Good evening.


Went to lunch with FIL & his wife. Good German food.

I've been working on a couple more antiqued ornaments. Liking them, but learning as I go. For these, I crocheted some lacy stuff to put on them. I still have to glaze them, then I'll upload.

Default Hello

Waving Hello!

Kathy, we had skunks visiting our back yard, so we put rags soaked with Ammonia around the area. We are told they are territorial, and that smells to them as though the area is out of bounds for them. It worked, they left......

Ann- glad your son feels better.

Wow Sharon- that is wonderful you have met so many people from your online friends!

Melodie- I have not tried the ornaments yet- no time yet! I look forward to seeing yours with the crocheted lace : )

Ann- I did pinch the little guy back, and when he kicked me, I picked him up by his feet and held him upside down..... I felt bad, but it stopped the kicking for a while yet. I have heard that kids that do those behaviors need something they cannot verbalize.... Maybe.... not so sure..... all I know is it is so terribly hard for my neighbor to deal with her husband with Alzheimers and kids who take advantage of her! 0

Catherine- I am with you on the Victoria Secret ads....I too think it is pretty raceyyyyyy!

Gracie- hope your computer gets there speedily!!!

Waving hello to all!
Shelly

Good evening everyone!

We went to the movie and out to dinner with neighbors. Ford vs Ferrari. I didn't think I'd like it but it had a really good story line.

Catherine, that sounds like fun to have a family compound...I'd probably call it a resort though.

Sharon that is very cool to have met so many crafters from SCS in real life!

Can't wait to see your ornaments Melody.

Ann, so glad your son got medicine and can finally get better.

Shelly, I feel sorry for your neighbor. She sounds like she needs a counselor to deal with all that chaos!

Thanks Gracie for the comment on my mono print cards! They are fun and I think I'll do a few more for extra bgs!! I think though I need to really add more ink the next time!

DH went last weekend with DS and DIL to see Ford versus Ferrari. I love Matt Damon but cars don't interest me. I think DS can quote all of the Fast and Furious movies and I've never watched one! LOL. As for the skunk, I was reading about ammonia Shelly. I may bring the outside cat in tomorrow night and set a trap over in the field. That will keep him far enough away for DH to handle when he gets home. He ran under the house when DS2 got home tonight. I don't want him under there! I'm afraid if I put the ammonia rags out, I may trap him under the house! Mom has critter traps we've used to catch a possum in the garage, so I hope it will catch the skunk. I just have to make sure the cats are all in. Barbie has been sleeping on my porch so I'll ask my sister to keep her in tomorrow night. Once the trap is spring, it won't matter

Quick hello....lots of chatter and will have to catch up when I can. I saw the poppets yesterday and today was also poppet day here...they are a joy. Played lots and had lots of hugs. Hubby still not well and we had a bad night last night as he was up coughing for most of it. DGD came today and she has a cold but was in good spirits.

Time to clear away the dinner dishes and watch a show. We are stuffed lol.

Happy day everyone

Talking's fun too! Those are the times when you talk so much you lose your voice! LOL
I've had that happen a time or two!

Today's agenda:

Make a card for Kandie
Set up skunk trap!
Put Christmas cards into envelopes. (I addressed them last week.)
Make more popper boxes. (Paper pixie posted a cool tutorial)

Good morning!

Great picture Sis...I would have never guessed you like to talk! ROFLMBO.

Kathy, you have a good to-do-list going. Good luck. I have one too, but just sitting here enjoying my coffee and thinking about it! Lol

Jayne, lucky you...two days with your dear poppets.

Ann, I may have to add the mono print technique to my ever-growing to-do-list.

Good Evening you all,

Sending good whishes to you all, good night.

Morning!

It's cleaning time and setting up the tree! Plus finishing touches on my Christmas village today! I have not had it up in years!

We are of course hosting Thanksgiving! We do most years. I am not a procrastinator (as you guys know) so I want things done early!

No worries, my cards are long gone out and now I can center on baking, cleaning and decorating!

Years ago when the kids were little I always had to be done early, two of my sons have December birthdays so it was always get prepared for Christmas so that their birthday parties were special!

Ok no crafting today, and off I go to get started! Have a great Saturday everyone!

Hi everyone! It is quiet on here today, everyone must be busy. The question is busy doing what? Getting their to do lists done? Getting into mischief? Of course, that presumes that getting into mischief wasn't one of the items on their to do list!

I finally made my C card last night and just uploaded it. I still haven't done anything for the mini VSN challenges, maybe I won't get there this time. December's VSN is a little challenging as it happens right around the time of DH's birthday.

Sharon, you have met quite a few SCS people, how cool. I have met our amazing leader, Ann, and that was fabulous!

Melody, I'm sure you've uploaded some of your ornaments by now, I'll have to go and check them out.

Shelly, thanks for the tip about ammonia rags. I need to file that away for future reference in case any skunks want to hang out here. I'm glad you are there and able to help your neighbor, she really has a lot on her plate it sounds like.

Gracie, rebranding it from a compound to a resort works for me!

Yay for enjoying your poppets, Jayne! They are so fortunate to be able to get to spend time with their grandparents.

Vickster, love the photo! So cool.

Kathy, did you get everything on your list completed? Knowing you, you probably did!

Gracie, how did thinking about your to-do list go? LOL

Dagmar, it sounds like you are a busy lady!

Ann, so you have decorated for Christmas before Thanksgiving at your house? Wow, you are so busy!

Oh, here is a photo of Wesley, the female kitty, and her human. I think I told you about finding a doll bonnet in DD1's boxes that we were going through so, of course, it had to go on poor Wesley's head! Isn't she cute?

I haven't met any SCS friends, but I have talked to Sharon on the phone. She called me on my birthday a year or two ago.

I figured you would get everything done! I'm sure you have something in your card stash that you could send but it is more fun to make one.

Son fell asleep again on the couch so not much done for me today so far. Didn't want to wake him now that he is finally sleeping with the meds. Spouse had to watch the Wisconsin game so that is holding us up to but oh well. Will get it done tonight and tomorrow.

And yes Catherine I have decorated before Thanksgiving before. Usually it is the day after turkey day but as I am getting older I take things slower then in my younger years. Plus I have pies and cheesecakes to make this coming week along with the turkey and all the side dishes!

So while spouse is watching the game I am trying to work on the MIX challenge! Finding I am going in all directions on the cards! LOL!

What is everyone else up to this evening?

Just skimming through the chatter......

Sharon, I am always taking home unused napkins! Well, I actually keep them in my purse, cause we always need extras when we are in a restaurant!

Ann, lol, what projects are you referring to? I just made a card for the IC challenge, but now I don't feel so good. Will probably not do much this evening!

Kathy, that video with the kitties was fun to watch. The other video-I am with Sharon, I am afraid to be enabled, lol.....(But I will watch, of course, lol)

Catherine, your daughter is so happy with her kitty!

I did get a card made and sent out to Kandie but I forgot to take a picture of it! So I did a task on your list Kathy! Lol I got quite a bit done today, not everything but it was a big list. So I'm happy.

Catherine, that picture of Wesley and your daughter is so cute!

Ann, glad your son is getting some rest. Yay, Wisconsin won their game.

Just relaxing now as I worked in the yard...moving more rock again.

True Ann, but it's nice to be outside and once we get the trenches done for drainage and the rock all situated, no yard work because our whole yard in Payson is all rock.

Wesley is so adorable! (So is your daughter!). I have outside kitty inside while the skunk trap is set. I set it before to catch a possum but caught kitty instead, so I've learned my lesson! LOL

Poor DH. He started vacation Friday and today he gets called into work. Then he gets in there and finds enough work for a full day! He called to tell me he wasn't going to get home too soon, he got a bit nippy with me (from frustration) so I hung up on him! He called shortly after and apologized. He's not normally grumpy like that and I feel bad for him for having to go in. Its one thing to go in, but a totally different story having hours of work!

Catherine, the only stash I have is birthday and sympathy. I need to get busy and build it back up.

Gracie, that is too funny! My sons keep telling me we should just have all rock on the yard or asphalt! But all rock on an acre and a half, that's a lot of rock and landscape fabric and then weed killer to get rid of the weeds between the rocks! LOL!

Its raining her so I put a raincoat on and went out and threw an old towel over the rest of the cage. I don't smell anything so I don't think he sprayed. DH is on his way home. The rest is his job! LOL

Aren't you nice Kathy. Your poor DH, does he know what he's in for when he gets home?

Yep! He's been warned! LOL. DS says, how am I supposed to get inside? I say, duh....go around to the back door goofy boy! LOL. I'm the one who went out and covered the trap. They tell me they won't spray if they can't see you. I'm not sure I want to test that theory!

Oh my goodness, my advice, Kathy, would have been to stay far, far away from the trap! Your poor DH!

Ann, I'm glad your son is getting rest, sorry it is interfering with you getting things done though.

Shirl, yes, DD2 is VERY happy with her kitty. And I agree, Kathy, Wesley is adorable - as is DD2.

Gracie, no need to go to the gym with all that rock moving you've been doing!

Speaking of the weather, I'm sitting in my living room is shorts, a tank top, and bare feet. Why? No, we aren't having a heat wave...DH just made the living too warm with the fire!

Ann, another problem with planting rock for your yard is that, when it is hot, it is hotter to have that rather than plants in your yard.

I have to tell a funny on DD2. When I showed her my C card and she realized that I colored the Christmas Candles with Copics, she was impressed in my improved skills and she said to DD1, "I'm so proud! They grow up so fast!" What a goof ball!

Also, we had Chinese food today and my fortune was amusing too. It said I would find a creative outlet and accomplish great things. DD2 said, "I think you already did that!"

I wish my fortune cookies were that nice. Mine usually say something that makes no sense.
