Prayer Request
I am asking for your prayers. A young man( 25 or so) is being rushed to the eye foundation as I write this request. He was playing around with a pair of pliers , and you know what Mother would say " Stop, you will poke your eye out" . I don't have all the details. The family has been under great stress this year. And there is not a end in sight. His name is Jason and please remember him and his family in your prayers.

Rain Rain go away and come another day.
Was the perfect day for a nap ...
Was the perfect day to Antique shop ...
Was the perfect day to watch T.V ,
Curled up on the sofa ...
It was the perfect day for egg sandwiches for supper...
Was the perfect night to turn in early.
How did you spend your "rainy Saturday"?

You know how I love finding the most unusual items at Auction. Well, here is my latest. I was the winning bidder of 3 saleman samples from a hosiery company named Cinderella. These booklets are from 1940, 38 and 37. I just love them. The booklet are in the best of shape and only a few flaws. On one of the books someone has put yes and a check by the colors they preferred. I don't know what I will do with these. I put the oldest on e-bay ( 1940) and I want to keep this one.

Ironic- one of the ladies that has a booth in the shop brought in a signed letter from Nancy Reagan today....

"My fellow Americans. I'm pleased to announce that I've signed legislation outlawing the Soviet Union. We begin bombing in five minutes." –joking during a mike check before his Saturday radio broadcast

( He was on my mind, he was pretty funny too.)
Okay , I have been dragged in kicking and screaming again. There is a Alabama boy! I turned on "American Idol" on Tuesday night and the girls were singing. I played with the grandchildren, did a little surfing on the internet, cleaned up the kitchen and it was over. Last night I was glued to the T.V. The guy were great. Not all of them , by all means. But from rockers to show tunes. I loved it. I had not seen any of the finals, that does not thrill me, get rid of the jokes and lets get down to the good stuff. If you watched did you see the "eye candy". There are some cuteies. After looking at the Alabama guy ( sorry his name has left me) I was afraid he was going to be a joke and he was not voted off in respect for Bo and Ruben. But he was a total surprise. I liked him. Simon was in rare form last night, I get tired of all the bickering with Paula. So you know where I will be tonight. Results Night! I always get pulled in when there is a Alabama contestant.

Do you like being alone? I have been alone for a few nights now, hubby has been working late. And for a night or two it is great. I come home cook or not cook, I take a long bath, read,scrapbook,or do nothing. But after the first night I really get to miss him and the company. Last night, I watched T.V for awhile, gathered crop ideas, packed up a box I needed to mail, made a few phone calls, took the trash out, fixed dinner, was sooo lonely. I don't like Wednesday night T.V, so I sat and done nothing. I guess I just need to be doing something or talking to someone. I could just talk and pretend there was someone in the house." HOW WAS YOU DAY? I HAD A WONDERFUL DAY AND LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT!!" until I have unexpected company. And they lock me up and throw away the key. Oh , well tonight I have a auction, tomorrow crop and hubby better be home on Saturday........Happy Thursday

Twyla Tharp : Creativity is more about taking the facts, fictions, and feelings we store away and finding new ways to connect them. What we're talking about here is metaphor. Metaphor is the lifeblood of all art, if it is not art itself. Metaphor is our vocabulary for connecting what we are experiencing now with what we have experienced before. It's not only how we express what we remember , it's how we interpret it - for ourselves and others.

Silent Auction was last night and ( drum roll, please!!) My cherry Bucket made $45.00. And my Baby girl Scrapbook got $80.00. We had a outstanding time and made a lot of money for the hospital children. I love being able to help these children. This may become a one of the biggest events of our year. Although it had snowed off and on all afternoon, the people came. The food was wonderful , company was great, and it was all to benefit these precious children. God is good. Have a blessed Sunday.

It is Thursday and time for a poem!
Can you guess what this poem is about?
Can you tell I am having a Krispy Kreme attack.
I think everything you can think of, has had a poem written .
Happy Thursday!

YUM! The sweet taste of chocolate seemed near,Combined with sugary fat'ning dough,The aroma making your nostrils sear. You completed the last left turn and whoa,The thought of creamy donuts consumed you. Not looking at the close curb in the road,You slam the right pedal, the wrong thing to do.Supposed to be parking, instead you mowedA huge hole in the front of Krispy Kreme,Right through the glass front doors and windows.Good job, Grandma, we make a great ol' team,But there's no way I could follow my noseTo those long johns any faster than you!

Okay, here is my version of the "Cherry Bucket" for the Auction. I think it turned out pretty nice. There is no way you can see it all. There is Rubbermaid bowls with red lids, dish towels, red spoon rest, wooden spoons, rolling pin with red handle, note cards with cherries, measuring cups and spoons ( red), red handled steak knifes, red Bing cherries, cherry candle, well, let's see did I forget anything........ Oh, you just need to come on down and see it. And maybe try your luck at bidding on it. After all it all goes to help the children at the hospital. Let's just say it is loaded full with goodies. I hope I get a good price for it. As I was unpacking a box lot I had gotten at the Auction this weekend, I found a cross stiched piece with cherries. Just one more goodie to add. Happy Wednesday!

I completed a whole album in 2 hours. Needed a new album for the "Class Preview" at Michaels today. I wasn't going to be able to be there ( I have a job now). So they ask for a album to show when asked about scrapbooking. Do you know I have been sooo busy that I did not have a new album. I had a few pages but not enough for an album. So I had pics ( A whole roll) of grandson #1 turning cart wheels in the yard. Perfect, I had one of the precut deals, with paper 8x8, tags and corner, perfect, gathered a few embellishments and 2 hours later, BINGO, I have a completed album......I still need to add journaling. But it is done..... Took it to the store and made it home just as it started to rain last night. So if you are in the neighborhood today, stop by and check it out.

Could this be what we think about Scrap booking? Think about it.

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. Georgia O'Keeffe

www.jennibowlin.com Check out this new monthly kits you can get. I like her look but have committed to a kit already lately. So do I ? ..............Or not? Thinking...Thinking.....Thinking......Thinking..... I think I need to think on it over the weekend.

As I reported Last week I have gotten a few pages done lately . I am now working on a new style to " All bundled up". Different than the one for Michael's class. But the same name. Kinda space-ie today, can't get a firm thought in my head this morning. This menopause stuff is for the birds. Have an appointment next week. Hubby is glad too. Seem to be really emotional all the time now. Cried at Reba's old song "Fancy" recently. I have heard it thousands of times and not really a favorite but on this day I booo hoooed.( Alot) Enough about that...

Have a god day!
