I have been busy creating and playing around with different things the last few days. I am preparing for the Crop 2 Help Retreat, and I got in a wonderful kit from Jenny Bowlin. This is another one of those 80's collage frame. I love these pictures. And when I saw them I knew they needed to be seen by everyone. Will take a few days off this weekend, hubby off till Wednesday. Have a wonderful and safe holiday.

Oh my goodness, I had a ball this weekend. Spent Friday night at Mania, scrapbooking. We had make and takes with these gals,
We had a make and take with Cheryl
And the classes was great. Cheryl was outstanding . Alot to create in one day but I am back in the swing and my creative juices are flowing, so look out. I have so many ideas and I am ready to create.
The best fun was seeing all my gal pals. It has been 7 months since I saw Bestest friend, Jeanette. And it was so good to see Barbara , Donna , Janet, India, Queen Nonna and Terri. And I met new scrappin buddies. Oh, what a weekend.
The fellowship with my scrappin buddies is what I needed, girl time.

We have been back to school only 9 days and grandson #1 missed the bus. So after ranting and raving for a few minutes I realize that I could take #2 to daycare early and have some alone time to do what ever I want. So I skipped to the car and loaded everyone into the car singing. Oh, get real, me skipping. But it was a nice break and all was happy. So here I sit with 2 hours on my hands to do with what I want. And I am dumb founded that I can't think of a thing to do. I know the sink is full of dishes and my bed needs to be made and I am going to a overnight crop this weekend and I need to come up with something to do, but I sit here on the computer. Oh, it is my party and I will cry if I want to. OR It is my alone time and only you know I am surfing the Internet. Lifting my virtual glass, Here's to being alone , a quite house, and no desire to empty that sink or make that bed. Okay snapping back to reality, I guess this is a post about nothing. So lifting that glass once more, here is to nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a Happy Tuesday.
And I promise that it is a virtual glass.....

We are back into the swing of things, school started last week. DD is working 7 on and 7 off right now, so I am only on school duty every 7 days. Getting to the school bus on time, trying to come up with something for grandson #1 to eat, He is a picky eater, did you brush your teeth, where is your back pack. Does everyone go through this? And all the while getting a 3 year ready for daycare and myself ready for work. It has been a busy week and I sat down with grandson #1 last night to ask how his day was. It was 8:30, I was cooking him noodles for supper, ( football practice was till 8, and he won't eat before, ) he was coloring a map of the united states. I asked him about school, his eyes lit up and he started telling me in the 5th grade you had more of a selection at lunch. And the chocolate milk was bigger and colder. He had 4 chocolate milks yesterday. FOUR! yeah, the lunch lady wouldn't let me have more than 2 so I got Josh to get me two more. And Sara got me 2 and I put them in my cooler for snack. That made SIX! So by this I know it was a good day! If you are ever down and need a pick me up, just have some chocolate milk, maybe you should stop with one though.

As promised, a few pictures of our "World's longest Yard Sale" Treasures.
The first picture is a Chinese sugar mold, I saw a pencil holder, they had candles in it. Look outside the box. Milk caps will be used for a Christmas project. Old Victorian album that is falling apart, well, it will used to create something. The old camping toaster is a candle holder. Old black and white wedding are one of my favorites. I am saving a few items until I get them set up and displayed. Stayed tuned.

We are home from the "World's Longest Yard Sale". And I took my camera. Although I didn't get it out of the truck the whole time. I think I got one picture on Friday. I also took it to the shop on Saturday morning to snap pic of the treasures I purchased. And it is still there. So we are home all is well and I will post pictures next week.
Jenn and Jennifer will have to wait a day or two longer.

Gearing up for the "World's Longest Yard Sale" starting on Thursday. Hubby and I will attend a few days of hunting for the ultimate bargain, the most unique items and the hottest place on earth. I will complain about the prices, the heat, the unfriendly drivers, the lack of bathrooms, ( I won't use a rent a potty), the junk some people sets out in the yard to sale, and did I say the heat. Oh honey, it is as hot as fire at times, and you don't stay in the car long enough to cool off. But we love it. I was disappointed last year with the items I got to buy, they seem to get higher and higher each year. But I sold everything as soon as I got them out in the store. I try to find item that are unique to our area, something maybe you don't see too often. So wish me luck and I will have pic by Monday or so.

Have a great weekend.

It is that time of the summer. And now it is done. I canned all day yesterday, and my canning is done for the year. I put up vegetable soup, tomatoes, and salsa. Put peppers and peas in the freezer. Maybe a few more peas, but then I am done. And we can have veggies all winter long.
I had a lady in the store last week, tell me about a Squash Pattie recipe.
Gonna give it a try tonight. Here it is...
Steam your squash and drain, add one package of Mexican cornbread mix and one egg. Form patties and fry. Yes, fry! I live in the south and how do you think I keep up my curves. Loving it!

I enjoy watching the classics. A rainy weekend, movies and curled up on the sofa is a enjoyable time for me. But it doesn't happen that often. This would be a perfect line up. Although I have 2 of the 4 on video. Oh, and how can I forget 7 brides for 7 brothers. Now it would be a perfect movie weekend. What about yours. Tell us, leave a link to your blog and post your favorite movies.
