Jayne what did the card look like? Maybe it was the thinking of you card I mailed a long time ago! And maybe your birthday card is out there yet! It's been a while, so I can't remember!

Have to run. I'm watching little man a bit today and I have to go pick him up. I hate last minute requests, but I guess she assumed his grandpa would watch him and Grandpa's job wanted him back in the office today. His mom works from home but he's a handful and she can't make phone calls with him there. Bless his teachers this fall!

I just started to leave and niece texted that he's still sleeping. She'll let me know when he's awake and then I'll leave. Yay. Time for a coffee and Bible reading!

Jayne, no Steve dropped the door off at the fireplace shop, she said she will ring!,maybe it will be ready Friday, mmm we will see, can’t believe it takes that lon to change a piece of glass.

Catherine, I know what spackle is, like our cola blanca but what is mud, or is it mud,I doubt that but Intrigued as you know I do quite a lot of DIY?

I had quite a few distress inks,not all of the latest colours, they dry up and I have some refills, I only have one oxide, I like it but have played with it much, I have a few colours from Altenew and I have quite a few chalk inks, I really like the colours they do, you know the little shaped ones.

I’ve been playing about making my doll, I’m hopeless at drawing so I’m a bit scared of doing g the face! She will most likely end up scary, she’s actually ended up looking spanish!

I’ve discovered Rhubarb fizzy water, at the English shop so I’ve been to buy more, and white vinegar as Steve read that you use it with bi carb to clean the washing machine,
We did it today, hope it’s cleaned the drainpipe too.

Jan, hope it doesn’t take too long to get your door back. We clean our appliances with white vinegar and bicarb...got the tip off the net. It works for a blocked or smelly drain too.

Kathy, the one I opened yesterday has beautiful Poppy paper on the front and the sentiment says thinking of you with all my heart. It’s gorgeous. The one in my craft room I received a few weeks ago is aqua and also has gorgeous script paper and what I call a Moroccan print paper and the sentiment says sending prayers. Another gorgeous card. I feel very special to have received two from you within weeks and love them both.

Well I’ve just had such a belly laugh. Ever get those kind where you can’t stop laughing and tears run down your face? I had to stop laughing as it hurt my stomach so much lol. DH asked me if I wanted to watch another show. It’s getting late so I said no I would read my book whilst he watched the rest of his sporting show he had taped. I asked him if he would mind getting me my book. He asked me where it was. I said it’s on my kindle on my iPad. He looked over to the dining room table where my iPad was and said “seriously, my arms not that long”. We are both reclined on our new sofa and neither of us wanted to move. Well I looked at him and we both cracked up. It’s not funny but at the time we thought it was hilarious. So now I’ve had to get up and get it lol. We still are chuckling. Small things lol.

Have a fun day

Morning! Seems everyone is so busy with cleaning projects.

I'm changing sheets and washing blankets today! Fun stuff!

Then on to challenges, hopefully!

Jayne, that is horrible that your nose runs so much in the morning! I get eye junk every morning! Allergies! I'm dusting more to try and help myself.

Off to feed Iris and Athena! Athena is already nagging me! You know stamping her feet at me then tilting her head and finally barking because she thinks mom doesn't know she wants breakfast!

Good morning. Gosh, it took DH and I an hour to wake up this morning. Dusty got me up before 7 to go out, and now she’s asleep and we are still struggling to stay awake.

My bad day ended badly, which was pretty much the theme of the entire day. I ran into three different sharp corners in the craft room and now have bruises on one arm and a swollen knee. And, to top it off, I put Dusty’s bowl of shredded turkey on the couch to try to get her to eat at a decent hour, and then I decided to get up, and I overturned the bowl all over the couch. (Sigh). It was a pleasure to give up and go to bed, lol.

Melody, I have been afflicted with full set syndrome on those oxides; I am in love with them! Your storage creation is amazing! Well done!

Annnd, I have read through all the chatter and promptly forgot it, so I’ll say HELLO to everyone and leave it at that. HI!

I heard on this morning’s news that the virus has increased again so high in Arizona and California that masks are now mandatory. I know the county next to us has tripled again over the weekend. No one is paying attention.

The casinos here have reopened and DH’s mailbox has been flooded with advertisements about free meals, free play, free overnight stays, and he has been fighting the urge to go. This morning he said he may go Thursday, lol.

Arthur has made itself at home in our joints today, the temp dropped to 63 and it poured all night. However, the grass and plants got a nice big drink of water!

I think I have a plan for a card today, so I’m going to walk slowly and calmly into the craft room and see if any inspirations hit me for its design, lol. Uh, hit me figuratively, not literally!!!

Jayne, I love those moments of cracking up over something said between the two of you, and then it becomes a catchphrase that only the two of you appreciate, lol. Laughter is indeed the best medicine!

Ann, I’m trying to remember to vacuum under the bed more often, because dust bunnies love to gather for conventions there and no one sends me an invite.

Good morning! It's going to be a lovely day here. I am just enjoying my morning cup of tea and then will get the dusting and vacuuming done. David and I went for our evening walk last night and boy were my allergies not happy. There is so much poplar fluff around, especially in the nature area where we walk. In some spots it looked like snow on the side of the path, it was so thick. Of course Farley kept walking through it and kicking it back into the air.

Jayne we had one of those moments last night, I washed our pillows, they are chillo pillows, supposedly, anyway I washed them and decided that they might not be aired so I left them in the conservatory to air until today, so we go to bed and although we have two pillows each we only sleep with one, i grabbed my pillow and put on the floor got into bed and was just going to say to Steve that my other pillow was so flat when I realised I didn't have any pillow just the pillowcase, well I started laughing and I could hardly tell steve what I was laughing at, honestly just shows how we get into a routine without thinking what we are doing. Sorry like anything it was funny at the time.

Steve decided to clean the filters on the air con, we used it last night for the first time, he said they shouldn’t need doing, anyway you wouldn’t believe the dust on them!

I didn’t sleep well last night, I never do when we first put the air con on, the tiny light disturbs me, I’m not sure why, ha,ha, we used to have a matchbox over the fridge light in the caravan as to be it was like a spot light, Steve thinks I’m mad!

Good morning! I just uploaded my LS card because I finally got a chance to craft last night...yay! It was a warm night so an AC night rather than open windows...sadly. Something bit me three times on my face - twice near my right eye and once on my left cheek. I told DH that perhaps I should stay home because my face (especially near the eye) is a bit deformed with swelling from the bites.

Let's see, I need to go get ready for work but want to answer the questions I was asked.

Jayne, DD1's window area is almost ready to paint and then we can put her window covering back up. I'll be so glad when that is done. When we painted her room, we didn't do the area around the window because of the window covering so we'll correct that before we put it back up.

Yes, work is still busy.

It sounds to me like you are allergic to mornings, Jayne! I used to tease my mom that she was allergic to mornings. She would wake up sneezing and blowing her nose. She'd sneeze about three times in a row and I'd know she was awake!

Glad you had a good time with your family!

Jan, I asked DH what the mud is. We call it mud but he said it is more formally called joint compound. It works like spackle except it is less expensive and will shrink a bit. He put more on around her window last night due to the shrinkage. I guess the spackle doesn't shrink but it is quite a bit more expensive so he uses mud and a couple of applications to get it to what he wants.

Wow, Kandie, you bruise quickly. By the time my bruise shows up, I have forgotten what I ran into! I hope today is going much better for you.

I'm glad to read you ladies are enjoying belly laughs. That is so good for you! I've heard it described as jogging for your insides!

Kandie, we have a drawer unit under our bed so the dust bunnies have no chance to gather under there.

I hope your allergies have settled down, Annette.

Yay for your DS2 being available and willing to play tee ball, Kathy!

I'd better run, chat with you later!

Happy Wednesday and I just saw Ann's post and the reminder about M...I had totally forgotten but I haven't managed to get into my craft room to play and only to dump goodies LOL.

Catherine, that is what I do when I wake too...sneeze multiple times and then the tap starts. Maybe I am allergic to mornings LOL. Our bed doesn't have much room underneath it but maybe there's some dust bunnies under there although we only vacuumed it recently...mmm. Something triggers it and it's not always in the bedroom. I can be in the kitchen when I start and I haven't done a thing but walk in there LOL. Annette, I hope your allergies have settled.

Jan, I can picture the pillow situation. Sometimes you just need a belly laugh.

Kathy, I love my cards and hopefully the birthday one turns up but the ones you have sent me are gorgeous. Thank you again.

Kandie, I bruise very easily but have a blood disorder where I clot easily. I'm sorry you had a rough day yesterday but hopefully today is full of fun and joy for you...and no bumping.

Well I am supposed to be doing some home stuff. I've been out all morning with friends for coffee and then one of my friends and I went girly shopping together....just browsing furniture stores as I'm looking for chairs and she is looking for furniture. We used to do this many years ago and I have missed her company. It was so nice to just browse and have someone who didn't mind going from shop to shop. We did have to hand sanitise in every one.

Kandie, DH was telling me about Arizona this morning and I thought of our Gracie and was so pleased she is now back in Wisconsin. Victoria (Melbourne) have more cases today and every State is now getting a little nervous that we are going to have a second spike. The problem is that there are people going out who say the virus is nothing, won't do the right thing and creating problems for the healthcare workers and everyone else. UK is the same. If it comes back here we will be isolating again. Keep safe and well everyone.

Right, time to check out a couple of threads and I'm off here...famous last words LOL Hugs everyone

Morning!

Hi Jayne, so glad you were able to go out with your dear friend. That makes all the difference in the world just having company and someone to share time with!

It's rainy and a bit dark here this morning! Weather is strange along with the world this year! Good thing for SCS and stamping friends!

Off to get my day going, Athena and Iris are looking at me like we are waiting mom, feed us and we want fresh ice cubes! Iris eats ice all day long, she loves it and takes her cubes under the kitchen table and crunches and crunches. It is so funny to watch her.

Good morning! Today will be a "get stuff done around the house" day. Not just one big thing but a million little ones. I will feel less guilty about spending my weekend in my craft room if the house is in order. David wants to get started on the new shed this weekend, so the less other things, the better. Looking forward to VSN.

Good morning, and happy Alpha letter, sketch challenge and watercolor day! Now I can tell what day it is by each day’s challenge because otherwise all my days run together. Except for the weekends. The tv shows are different and DH gets grumpy because his judge and game shows aren’t on, lol.

Catherine, we saw about your heat on the news, and also see that the fires have started again? Are they caused by the dry conditions, do you know, or is some idiot camping and being careless again.

And I love the mini distress cubes, too! Do you have the metal boxes to store them in?

Annette, what is your favorite tea flavor? I love tea, but sometimes the tannic acid upsets my stomachs. With herbal teas I love peppermint, and the scent of chamomile takes me back at least 40 years!

Jan, what a riot about your pillowcase! Your hubby will be asking you for years, dear, did you remember to put your pillow into the case, or are you sleeping flat tonight, lol.

And tiny lights bother me as well, I want total dark when I go to bed. Although, they are nice for walking to the bathroom late at night so one doesn’t bump into walls!

Jayne, girlfriend shopping and browsing is nice. I’ve never had a friend close enough to go browsing with. I’ll change that to I’ve never had one that didn’t talk all the time, lol. I like quiet when I browse. And no clocks ticking with a time limit!

Watercolor challenge is no-line today, and I learned new techniques just by reading the comments. And the sketch challenge is a simple one as well, open to so many interpretations!

Oh yes, I forgot to say, yesterday went better as far as bruising and dumping things, but last evening I filled Dusty’s bowl with fresh food, picked it up off the counter, it slipped out of my fingers and dumped food all over the floor.

Oh Kandie, don't you just hate those days when you drop things!! It's not just us at our age either!

My one son filled Iris's bowl full of ice and then slip and you guessed it a floor full of ice, of course Iris went to town on it!!

Pulled some weeds in one bed this morning and then got bit by black ants! Sprayed the area and said that's enough for one day!

Yesterday must've been spill day. I put old used coffee grounds into an old Folgers container and when it gets full I take it to the field and spread it out. Yesterday I went to put used grounds into that container and dropped it on the floor! Wet coffee all over! I didn't loose my cool but wasn't happy with my slow reflexes! I've been cleaning here today too. It's beautiful outside. Warm but low humidity and wonderful breeze!

Kandie, I love peppermint tea. Chamomile I'm very picky about. Some I like, and some I hate. There's no in between. I enjoy fruit blends, especially ones with lots of berries. I like to make up iced tea with it and then fizz it up a little with my sodastream. I really don't like earl grey or anything with a lot of jasmine.

Good morning! A quick check in from work. I left home early this morning to do a return before work instead of after when it will be 100+ degrees. I also stopped into DD1's Starbucks and got a coffee because I didn't sleep well last night at all. So fun to have her take my order! And one of her co-workers said she sees the resemblance which made my day. Mostly people think she looks like DH, so I'm always happy to have someone think she looks me. I think it is because she has more of his coloring than mine (thankfully) but she really does look a lot like me.

DH and DD1 got her window area painted last night so, if no touch ups are needed, she should have a blind back in her window tonight! Yay!

Jayne, I'd go with being allergic to mornings! LOL And what fun to have a shopping buddy. I need one of those because I don't like shopping very much! Having a buddy along makes it all better but I usually shop alone.

Kandie, I don't know what is causing the fires as I have quit paying attention to the news. I did hear a radio ad asking drivers to not pull off the road in vegetation and to be sure to have any tow chains up where they can't strike the road. I have seen sparks from chains dragging before, scary! It is definitely hot and dry here.

Ann, we have given Honey an ice cube before but it didn't interest her. I can't remember if we have tried doing that with Wesley or not.

That's a good idea to get ahead on chores, Annette. I should try to do that too.

Low humidity is always a plus for me, Kathy.

I'd better get back to work, chat with you later!

Kandie I’m not a lover of shopping and the experiences I’ve had with friends is that I ended up trailing around after them, not my idea of fun!

I have a massive bruise down my left shin, I do t have a clue how I did it, Steve said he’s been kicking me in bed, yes he will be reminding me for years and tell all the family about my empty pillowcase.

Our internet has been off since ten until a while ago, apparently they had a big problem on our Urbanización.

A joke from our DIL

Love that social distancing outfit, Jan! LOL. DH and I get lots of bruises, that we don’t know what caused them. He is on baby aspirin, but I am not. So??

Annette, I have to share this because I think it is funny. You know how if you order from U.S. the shipping is high? Well, I am tracking my new craft chair. It is suppose to be here by Friday! Yay, in time for VSN and zoom! Anyway, it is free shipping and it left Ontario Canada yesterday! I didn’t know when I ordered it that is where it was coming from. But I just found that funny.
I have to go to PT in a bit. But I went to coffee; tea with my gfs yesterday at Panera. I think two other customers were in there. Basically we had the whole place to ourselves.
Then two of us went to Christopher & Banks! We both gained weight over this pandemic. Unfortunately I didn’t know about wearing my swimsuit soon enough ha, to cut down on my eating. LOL. Anyway we both overspent. But at least I have a casual outfit and slacks and two tops for church that fit! Also went to bath & Body Works, and
Hobby Lobby. Most people aren’t bothering to wear masks including my friends! One last was wearing a mask and gloves, though. Anyway, my friends who have been getting out and about, teases me that it was my “coming out party” and they should have brought gifts. LOL

Got to go. Hope to see you all at VSN later this week.

Default Hello

Dropping by to say hello- I read back and caught up!

I drove up to my sisters on Monday and came back last night- and it was kinda hot to wear a mask the entire time inside! But...happy to help out- she has a compression fracture in her thoracic spine- in the area of the lower ribs. She has a brace she wears and I wanted to help her out- she had a few things for me to do, but basically just liked the company. She wanted to watercolor, so I brought her some of my mom's supplies that I still have and filled up her palatte and we started making a color chart for her. She did tole paint in the past, so hoping that will help and that she will enjoy water coloring!

Melanie- Wow- that Distress ink tower is wonderful! I do not collect all of the inks, but have many of them.... and reinkers. The Distress Oxides, I only have 14.... I love the DI cubes, and I take them when I travel- they are so beautiful for water coloring, IMO! Glad you enjoyed Father's Day

Ann- so sorry for your pup having tummy issues. So nice to see the grands!

Kandie- your Father's Day sounds like it was wonderful! Your day yesterday sounds like some days I have on occasion- happy to move on to the next one! I have a big bruise on my arm, I was leaning on the pantry door putting a shoe on and it shut and pinched me. I tease hubby he has to stop beating me- cause I am always all bruised up! My husband is very gentle : )
My darn hip is injured after a car accident in March : (

Sharon- it's a jungle out there- be careful and safe!!! Fun to get out and get a taste of the 'old life'...the things we took for granted!

Jan- love your funny 6' dress image- and ladies used to wear those huge hoop skirts! Imagine sitting in one of those! Hope you stay safe and hope that glass gets repaired quickly! Too funny about the flat pillowcase!

Jayne- Mailed you a card a few weeks ago- hope you get it soon! Hope you are felling better, and what a blessing it would be if those arms just reached way farther than they do so you did not have to get up...! LOL Thanks for the smiles : ) Sounds like you had a great FD weekend!

Catherine- I have never really know the difference between mud and spackle : ) So nice to have people tell you your beautiful DD looks so much like you : ) Glad DD had a busy productive FD and that you fd him well : )

Kathy- fun music video. So sorry about coffee grounds everywhere! Sounds like something I would do! My neighbor babysits her Grandkids- she has alot of energy! They are go, go, go!!! Gkad you had reinforcements to play ball with him!

Waving hello to everyone! Off to make dinner : )

Shelly

Good evening. DH and I went to Home Depot today to buy a new dehumidifier, since ours was not doing its job anymore. We wore our masks and all the employees were wearing them, but maybe only half the customers.

I worked on my gazebo for the penthouse on my hotel yesterday and today. It's almost finished. I need to put a coat of mod podge on the roof and glue the roof onto the gazebo supports. I may add some sorf of knob on top of the roof, since the gazebo is detachable.

Melody, you are amazing! I hope my comment took on your blog; for some reason I can’t comment on some blogs. Your stamp pad hotel is a work of art and it is going to be so practical, too!

Aww, thanks, Sharon. I haven't gotten any notifications of comments, and I just checked, and the post says zero comments. I know I have it set that I have to approve comments, so I should get notification. Maybe it's just a bit slow.

Oh Kandie, I forgot to answer your question about the tins for the mini ink cubes. I don't have the tins, it is something I want to get but haven't invested in yet. And yes, I know they aren't that expensive but when my wish list is huge....!

Jan, love the hoop dress. DD1 would love to wear a dress like that, she has always loved dress up.

I'm like you, by the time the bruise shows up, I don't remember what happened to cause it.

Sharon, you and Larry have to quit beating each other up while you are sleeping! lol

It sounds like you had a lovely outing!

Oops, have to go do the family 20 minute clean up. Back in a bit.

What are the rules...I mean can I work on these before vsn starts? I'm tempted to play this time. I liked Sonja's challenge especially.

I have one tin for my mini inks, trouble is I forget it’s there as my others are stacked on my shelves, I’m thinking I might try a shelf unit to fit inside my shelf, not sure I’m precise enough to make such a great job as Melody, that ink tower is amazing!

Ve have just read that Brits won’t be allowed to travel to the USA until at least December, at least we might get a credit note for our flights in September if they cancel them as they told us we aren’t eligible to a credit note when I emailed before

Yes, Kathy, that's the idea. You can do them ahead of time, but not post early, so you are a little less rushed during VSN.


This thread should tell you any rules.

I have never done the sneak peeks so I looked them up. Fun categories, love that matchbook cover. Are there always only two?

Morning!!

Melody, is right, Kathy, do them ahead of time but no posting till the challenge goes live.
Fun to get a couple done ahead of time!

Up early, could not sleep but now Iris and Athena are looking at me saying feed us!!

Heat wave is coming this weekend, but so is maybe a bit of bad weather. Hope not for vsn.

I will get out the link for an Alpha Zoom hopefully this afternoon to the rest of the Alpha crew. Only thing you need to do is click on the link, no other signing in is required! And my understanding from my son is once you have the link and I'm signed on, no other passwords are needed, you just use the link!

Have a good day everyone!
