Morning!

Was hoping for good news this morning about Honey! Prayers for her safe return, Catherine!

I'm going to try and work on the rest of the color challenges this morning! Taking a break from cleaning the basement on this very hot day!

Stay cool everyone today and hopefully get some crafting done!

Ann, we have the heat advisory here as well, warnings to stay inside, how hot cement will be (110), how hot asphalt will be (140). Stay in and stay cool, dear friend.

Kathy, DH saw the Hanes masks and bought a box. They fit him well but are too large for me. So nice that he has several now that can be washed and reworn. My insurance company, Humana, sent me two neon green masks in the mail last week and they fit me great! Of course the name Humana is on them in large white letters!!!

Kathy, I saw the Neowise comet on a video on tv! How cool that you actually saw it yourself!

Ann, I did two of the CC cards and hated the second one, so I decided not to fret about doing all 6 even though it would have put me in the drawing for the big prize. Good for you if you get all 6 done!

Jayne, YES PLEASE on the MM challenges! I have been trying to find my way through card styles and have been so drawn to the mixed media anything-goes that I think I found my craft home, lol. Especially with Wacky Girls, they like MM too!

I had one half of a good day yesterday and then all the ill feelings returned. I called my doctor to set up an appointment to talk with her, she asked for the symptoms and told me COVID-19 sometimes replicates the signs of allergies and sinus issues. She had me call the local virus hot line and repeat my symptoms, which I did, and they asked me to come get a test done right away. Not to be disgusting but those q-tips sure are inserted a long way into a person’s nose. It didn’t hurt but was uncomfortable, now today I feel like I’ve had a bad case of blowing my nose non-stop, lol.

Test results back in 5 to 7 days, so I’m now quarantined till the results are back, no one can come around and I can’t go out, which really does NOT break my heart at all. I didn’t feel like going to any estate sales this weekend anyway, the nonstop heat flashes and chills are frustrating and I just want to be home in my jammies, napping or making a mess in the craft room.

Which reminds me to go check on the Inspiration challenge for today. I will wish everyone a safe day, and especially a safe return of Honey to Catherine’s family’s loving arms. Take care, I’ll check back later.

Thanks, Ann. So tired of being so tired and sluggish, you know what I mean. Stay inside, too hot for you out there today. Grass pollen is totally high in our area.

Kandie, yes, I plan to stay inside. I have a bad headache this morning. Must be weather related to or stress or both! Just took Tylenol.

Kandie it will be interesting if you have had it with your symptoms as they never tell you about those just headaches, coughing loss of smell etc, our DIL had those symptoms but didn’t get an offer of a test,
I had strange allergy symptoms when lockdown first started but I haven’t been anywhere to catch anything but I got obsessed as I never have allergies.
Our DIL had the anti body tests through her work but it came back negative.

It's going to be hot here too. We had high winds and storms last night. They are predicting more today. DH found a tiny bird that must have fallen out of a nest during the storm. He nudged it a couple times and it moved a bit, then managed to fly up into a small pine tree. Poor thing.

Oh Catherine...I'm so heartbroken for you and your family! I was so hoping someone would have returned Honey. I'm with your DD and believe someone has her and is taking good care of her. I pray they return her to your family. HUGE HUGS!!!

Kandie and Ann, I hope you're both feeling better.

Kathy, I looked for the Comet and couldn't see it. I saw the Big Dipper. I'll have to try with my binoculars tonight.

Hi Jayne, hope your road trip is relaxing for you. At least, on the way to your MIL's. LOL

I looked between 10 p.m. and midnight. It's quite a bit below the big Dipper's bowl part of the ladle. Once I found it I could easily find it again and again using my binoculars.

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers and support. Still no news on Honey. For a brief time before I woke up completely, I dreamed she was home and was so happy. But then I woke up and realized it was just a dream. I just don't want her to be scared out there hoping we will find her. And, if someone has her, I think of all the things they don't know about her health wise like we have to give her eye lubrication and she has a special food diet because of her kidneys. I did post about her on an app called Nextdoor and we registered her as missing with the shelter.

It is supposed to be hot here today as well. Sounds like it is heat all over the states today.

Poor DD1, she only got about three hours of sleep.

Jan, everything has been smelling like smoke, like something is burning or someone has been smoking in our home. It’s disgusting, ack.

DH’s DS3 will NOT pay attention to warnings, and he even brings DH’s DGD over, she’s 8. We get so mad at him! I stay away from them both, but she loves to come see what art project I’m working on. DH and I could smack DS3 in the noggin many times!

I’m trying the IC with the Fine Gardening Pinterest site. I’m up to my elbows in gesso, torn up phone book pages (a big fat fail), and all kinds of reference books. In between waiting for stuff to dry I’m slowly doing household chores. My cheekbones feel like they are 3 feet wide! Either that or my eyeballs have shrunk to marble-size.

Catherine, those dreams are nightmares. They don’t do any good whatsoever, only make the heart drop even farther when you fully wake up.

I have such a painful spot in my chest for DD1 and for you and for Honey. Prayers are still being said.

Catherine I’m so sorry to hear Honey hasn’t been found, I was hoping she might have found her way home on her own.
Our boys once took our dog Sam out for a walk, they met some friends and forgot about Sam, next thing they burst on the door so upset, they had lost him, steve said really well Who is this then, Sam had got bored and come home on his own!

Our son always talks about the site next door, it’s a good place to try.

Just got home from my nieces bridal shower and came here first, hoping for good news for honey. Still praying.

The bridal shower was outside on the deck and it was so hot. I wore my mask the entire time, except to eat of course. My SIL was there and she had been to Maryland. If it were just me, it wouldn't matter, but I need to stay healthy for my DH, DS, and mom and dad

Catherine, I know this is really a long shot, but would it be possible for Honey to have headed to where you lived before? I know that's not real close, but dogs do that sometimes.

Still praying you will find her.

Melody, I would be shocked if she managed to do that. Poor Honey is older and easily disoriented, she could get disoriented in our house and it isn't a big house. I've pretty much wasted another day as I don't feel like doing anything. I had high hopes of crafting yesterday and haven't even felt like paper therapy.

Thank you all for your love and support, it really means so much.

Default Hello

Oh, Catherine! I am so sorry to hear about Honey! I hope and pray someone has found her, and will get her back to you!!!

Kandie! I hope you feel better soon, sorry about you not feeling well. And, prayers you do not have the virus!!

We are so hot and humid here as well!

I have to go check out the color challenge, will most likely not have time for 6 cards though- congrats for finishing them Sharon and best of luck Ann on finishing them.

Kathy, sounds like a productive day with the shopping and eating- and funny that you got food with no inners- and the shower sounds fun! We had a cloudy sky, so could not see any stars of a comet.

The Mixed Media challenge sounds fun- I need to catch up first!


Jayne- safe travels.


Catherine- keep us posted about Honey!


Shelly

Our DIL sent an email about a conversation our GS who is four and his six year old cousin.

Cousin, do you know I was born in a hospital in London
DIL , well JJ was born there too
JJ, no I wasn’t born in a hospital, I was born in the desert!
Cousin, what like Jesus
JJ, yes!

All this while they are trying to catch crabs on the beach

Oh my goodness, Jan! That is so sweet! The way children think is adorable!

Catherine...what an awful weekend now for you and your family! I wish we could all be with you and give you lots of hugs! I'm sure we'd all be a "crying" mess!

Good morning. Another hot day. I don't usually, but last night I left the AC on. DS is making us lunch today. He orders from Hello Fresh, so he gets the ingredients for the entire meal, and he cooks it.

Good morning. It is so cloudy and the air is heavy. A line of thunderstorms are heading this way. Maybe I won’t have to water the plants today after all.

Has anyone had trouble with flowers this summer, with the intense heat and then the pouring rains? Some of our plants are loving the weather, but the petunias are struggling.

Jan, that conversation between your GS and his cousin is absolutely precious! And kudos to the parents for teaching their children about Jesus, I love it.

Melody, we’ve heard of Hello Fresh, and I’d love to try it, but DH does the cooking and he is a comfort food cook, mashed potatoes, meat loaf, Mac and cheese from scratch... you know, all that good food that makes me gain weight, lol. What a joy to have a DH who will cook those good meals for you!

I had a dream last night - or maybe in between bathroom runs - that actually made me laugh. I’ve been working on different bg designs lately, and using stencils more than usual. Well, I dreamt that a group of life sized backgrounds were crowded around me, and then stencils were chasing me, LOL!

Morning!

Kandie, so funny about your stencil dreams!!

Yes, this heat is awful so I'm staying in the ac!

I did finish all six of the color challenge cards! Made my mind up to get them done!

Catherine, thinking of you and your family and sending prayers!

Hugs to all!

Kandie that dream is very funny, maybe you’ve been overdoing using the stencils, ha,ha

It’s quite weird what we dream about, I very rarely dream but in lockdown I had a few bad dreams, the ones where you carry on with it when you fall back to sleep. I used to snuggle up to Steve as I was scared, he said he wondered why I was stuck to his back
When we first retired Steve used to regularly have a nightmare where he was n a prisoner of war camp, but he can actually wake himself up. So odd!

Jan, I dream every night, I love to sleep but hate to dream. Most of my nightmares are about places I’ve worked, different people, bullies I’ve dealt with in the workplace, having no clothes on and everyone else is dressed - don’t you just hate that kind! Trying to type on a very old typewriter and everyone else has a modern computer. When I was much younger I could say Popcorn in my dream and instantly wake up, but it doesn’t work anymore. Dang it.

Catherine, I woke up at 5 and checked on here to see if there was any news. Even DH is keeping you and DDs and Honey in his prayers. He knows the pain of the loss as well. {{hugs}}

Has anyone noticed that Fishers now has “easy lift stamp blocks” now? I do manage to get my fingertips in the stamp pads a lot. I don’t understand, though, why the biggest one has rubber “feet” and there is nothing on the package to explain it.

The rubber feet are spongy and you put your stamp underneath and then push down on it. It goes down to stamp and comes back up off the paper

Hello everyone. Just came on here and saw this news about your missing Honey, Catherine. I am so sorry. Just prayed for her return.

Just made a new muffin recipe. They are cooling so haven't tried them yet. It was in a Woman's World magazine. They took longer to cook than what they said, but hopefully will be alright. Kind of messy with putting the batter in first, then blueberries and raspberries and then some granola on top. It will be messy to eat. We will have to hang over the kitchen sink to eat them, lol.....

Thinking of you all!

Shirl, I know someone who has been known to eat muffins with a fork or spoon. Just sayin'...

DS made chicken for me and some kind of fish for the rest of them. Carmelized carrots and cous cous. It was yummy. I don't think I've ever had cous cous before. DD brought ice cream from Culver's for dessert.

I was going to make bread this morning, because I wanted to take it along for lunch, but couldn't get my bread machine to program. So I just left it in the machine unplugged. When we got home, I tried again, but it still wouldn't work, so I dumped it in my mixing bowl and kneaded it with my Kitchen Aid mixer, then put it in a bowl to rise..., now it's in the bread pan rising and will bake it in the oven. The bread machines are so convenient, but I'm not sure I will replace it again, since I can still use my mixer. It just takes a bit more effort and time.

Ha, Melody, utensils are a good idea for some muffins, lol.

I used to love cous cous. Haven't bought it in ages though.
Ice cream is always a good dessert!


Ann, did you get rid of your headache?

We are having muggy weather here today, but there is a breeze!

Kandie, I have heard those Fiskars stamp things are pretty good!

Hi everyone. Still no word on Honey. We printed up some flyers and DH and DD1 took them around the neighborhood putting them up by the mailboxes. Someone called right away, apparently someone in the neighborhood took a photo and posted it online which generated this call. The lady had a number of further suggestions for us to do and she told us not to lose hope - however, she doesn't really know the neighborhood where we live. It is nice to know there are such kind and helpful people out there.

Speaking of that, our neighbor across the street (the one who took his dog around their property and ours to look for Honey) and his son brought his fabulous log splitter over and split a bunch of the wood we have. DH had been talking about needing to rent a splitter and they just volunteered to help us out that way. Such wonderful neighbors! We tried to buy them lunch but the father is on a very restricted diet so we only managed to buy lunch for their son. And it was such a hot day too. What a blessing.

Kandie, I laughed at your dream being pursued by stencils! I had the same dream this morning just before waking up, that Honey was home.

Melody, that is how I make bread these days. Using the KitchenAid to do the heavy mixing. After wearing out a couple of bread machines, we decided this was the best way to go forward - and no hole in the bottom of the bread from the paddle.

I'm trying to be productive today, working on doing the laundry I intended to do on Friday.

Thanks for all the love and hugs, they are so appreciated.
