Friday Challenge
Last night I was thinking about all of the houses I have lived in. And so.... Today I want to create a page telling about all the different houses I have lived in. This will be a good one. Because this will take brain power and the job of remembering. I hope I can.... and my name is........????

Warning: Rambling Post
Well, my weekend was uneventful. Worked on Saturday, afternoon nap, through a storm, hubby home, cooked dinner, went to bed. Sunday watched movie, finished class pages, washed clothes, grilled , grandson #1 over for a visit, just stayed home. I have enjoyed catching up on all the many blogs I read, about CHA. There is a lot of things I am looking forward in collecting. This seems to be the norm lately. I have a box and basket full of goodies, I have collected. Don't seem to have any inspiration to work. Went to crop on Friday night, completed nothing. Worked on 4 pages but did not complete any of them. Have class tonight , page is complete. Have an appointment with eye doctor today too. Head aches have been really bad the last two weeks. More and more, almost everyday I wake up hurting. But ( in a Arnold's Kindergarten cop voice) it is not a tumor! Hubby didn't laugh either.
The storm I napped through on Saturday produced some strong winds, that blew down two trees in my yard. They were both wild crab apple trees, and no big lose. But a pain to clean up, hope hubby does it while I am at class tonight.

Friday Challenge
This Friday I want to create a page with "MY LIST". I know you have seen other people the 100 things I want to see and do in my life. Well, I want to keep it small and do a mini list. Maybe top 5.... Places I want to go.....5 scrapbooking things I like or 5 what I like right now. You now how we change our mind and this list will need to be up dated at least every year. So get out a piece of card stock, scribble a little and add the top 5 anything.

Oh, for the next few days I am going to be really busy. Up this morning at 5 to bake a breakfast casserole for a meeting at 8 a . m. At my shop. So I was dusting ,cleaning, vacuuming and re-doing all day yesterday. Just had a minute between batches of monkey bits. And I wanted to give you the recipe.

2 cans biscuits

1 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup regular sugar

zest from one orange

1 stick of melted butter

1 package of cream cheese cut into 20 pieces

Mix sugars , zest and nuts together. Take a biscuit and with your hand spread it to twice its size, put in a piece of cream cheese. Fold it over and crimp the edges. ( don't want the cheese to come out in baking) roll in melted butter and then into sugar mixture. Bake at 350 until done.

Oh, how I love my pool!!! You can pass by most houses and see that the pool was for the children. But "NO" this pool is mine ....all mine. And if I could afford it I would have a bigger one. I have it all planned out when Terry wins the lottery, I get a bigger pool. I love the water and the sun and I love being in the pool. Just laying on the float and watching the clouds is heaven to me. Now if I could just figure out how I can scrapbook while being in the pool, it would be even better. But I could stay out there all day , but not this year , now I have to be at the shop. Why?? did I open this place, I wasn't thinking about my summers in the pool. I think about it all day and then when I get home I have sooo much to do that I don't get in. I am going to make a effort to get in a few evening this week. Because I feel so relaxed and good afterward.
Although today is my off day, I went to the shop and worked about 3 hours. I had gotten a few goodies and I needed to rearrange. Went to a Auction on Saturday and got a huge piece of furniture and had to place it in a already crowded area. Now it is all done. Things look good so now tomorrow all I have to do is vacuum and dust. Got all the antique dealers coming to my shop on Wednesday morning for our monthly meeting. It is many's first time to be in the shop, so I want it to look good. Now all I have to do is plan a menu for eight a.m. meeting. I have a new twist on monkey bread I am going to try tonight , if it is good I will pass on the recipe.

Vacation Review
Well, it was a great trip but I am worn out. My hubby thinks, vacation is a time to go, go , go, go and do things. We would leave the room by 9 and not come back until 9 or so. There was no leisure time. He wanted to be on the go all the time. Even when we went to the beach, he wanted to walk, I wanted to sit and watch the ocean. We took a sight seeing tour, which was great and informative. And explained how to get around. Parking was a nightmare, food was good, hot and muggy, smelled after a rain, and I did not get to see Paula Dean. But we ate at the Lady and Son's. Good southern cooking. Ate a Yummy sweet potato dessert.
I enjoyed the Shrimp Factory, had stuffed shrimp. Yummy! No room for Dessert. But got pecan parlines for later. Hubby was great, found the only 2 scrapbooking stores in Savannah. Got new stuff. Yeah! Went junkin' and got new stuff.
Got idea for future scrapbooking class. (Hint) I loved looking at the details of all the wonderful houses. ( look up)
Now I am looking forward to my fall vacation, to the beach.

Good Morning Sunshine! Yep it is early. I was wide awake a 5 a.m It seems that as of late I am a early bird. I am not sure how I feel about this since my hubby is a night person. By 10 p.m I am ready to slow down, put on my gown, and curl into my bed. I always set the timer on the Tellie, but I never see over 15 minutes . Hubby on the other hand can stay up all night and sleep till 10 on the weekends, that is if I let him. There is always amillion and one things that "NEED" to be done. This morning I am off to a Estate sale first thing, work till 2 and then auction tonight. I need to pick up a few pieces of nice furniture. When I opened the shop, it was 75% of my stuff. But now I don't have time to go buy anything. So I have just alittle bit. I need need need more stuff. And I have had to start a list of people wanting a booth. There is none available. We are packed to the rim. I love it. Not getting alot of scrapping done the last few weeks but there will be time. I have brought one of my scrapbooks to the shop and put a note on it saying " if you are interested in creating a scrapbook like this one , classes will start in August. Yes, I have decided to have a few classes. I have had 4 people ask and leave their address, in about a week. Not too bad. I have already created a 1 page for my first class. It will be the last of August but I am excited already. And if this does not go well, I will buy more stuff..... We all need more stuff!
