Boy cards. I didn't intend it, but whenever I use this set of stamps it seems that's what I come up with. This is the Moose You set and for all of them I used The Greengrocer's Brown Bag handtinted paper with matching envelopes somewhere within the cards. The cardstock for this one is More Mustard and then the leaf patterned paper is from K&Company. Some twine, buttons and Offray brown grosgrain ribbon. The ink is Always Artichoke.

Such a deer is done with Close to Cocoa ink, Always Artichoke for the leaf. The patterned paper is Once Upon a Time, the blue is the tinted brown bag. Cardstock is Close to Cocoa and Really Rust. Then more brown ribbon and silver sticky studs.

Stuck on you was inked in Blue Bayou ink, and more Always Artichoke leaves. The background brown is tinted brown bag, the cardstock is Blue Bayou. The patterned paper from Memory Boutique. Silver buckle from Joann's, and 3 big sticky studs.

So here it is 10 at night already. Tomorrow I'm staying home for sure. We're going out to dinner at 8, but then coming home after that. We have a gift certificate to use. The place is called the Bada Boom Pasta Room. Luv the name. Hope the food is good.

So yesterday I didn't finish telling you about my day. I went to Xpedx for some papers and envelopes. The guy working there was trying to get me to buy all of their clearance rack for $80 bucks. If I had the room I most certainly would. With most of my cards I use patterned paper and either Bazzill or Stampin' up cardstock, but the white and off white I use are 80 lb. papers. This paper is awesome and comes in so many colors, some textures, some even glittery. I always shop the clearance racks anyway and so I got reams of paper, which is 250 sheets originally $60 a ream for $5. I stocked up for sure. So I can make many, many, many cards for litterally pennies. The envelopes as well were $5 a box. A6 envelopes - 250 per box. If you have one near you, don't walk - run!!

We also went to IKEA yesterday. If you don't know what it is, and I didn't before I moved here to AZ, it's another of my favorite places to now shop. All kinds of home furnishings, candles, kitchen stuff, I could go on and on and spend many hours there, and we almost always do. Anyway, I spotted a picture I wanted for the bedroom. It's a huge black and white, probably taken in Paris or someplace somewhere and then there's a bicycle on a bridge in the middle of it and it's red. Our bedroom has a red comforter and stuff so it's perfect. Well it didn't fit in Neal's car. He wanted to return it but I wanted it. So here we are strapping it to the top of the car and now we're trying to drive down the road, each of us with one arm out holding onto to it so that it doesn't become a surfboard. We can't go over 30 and it's in Tempe. We live in Phoenix and this isn't fun. We tried to laugh, but we were mostly just annoyed. After about a half an hour he called his sister to come and rescue us and she put it in her car and brought it back to our place for us. Now we can take the highway, and we're home in 20 minutes. Thank goodness, or we'd still be driving. What an afternoon! But it's a great picture - really!!

It's the last day of 2008. So much has happened this year to so many of my friends and family and myself and the world seems to be in so much distress right now that I can only hope that 2009 will be better for us all. Hope is a beautiful thing and we've got to just keep thinking postive. I hope you have a good day tomorrow. I do plan on staying in so I have no excuse not to post something!

Peace and Luv!

Hi there - wow what a day! Here are the only 3 cards I made this weekend. Geez I'm so lame! I can already see the writing on the wall that I am not going to accomplish all that I wanted this week, and I probably did set the bar to high for myself, but if I kept my butt home for awhile and stopped shopping maybe I could!

Anyway, I used the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set and to tell you the truth I think that these stamps just look kind of lonely and sad on their own and haven't used them a whole lot. So I decided to try duplicate stamping with different colors and this is what I came up with. This first one is my favorite, and Neal sez is the most "me". I think it kind of looks like a bunch of lavender and so I did the leaf stamp first in Kiwi Kiss and then the flower stamp in Perfect Plum. I used an exacto knife and cut little slits to put the purple twine around the bunch of flowers and tied a bow. Besides then using the same color cardstock (Kiwi Kiss and Perfect Plum) the green patterned paper, which this one is also embossed, is from Memory Boutique. Then I used 2 brushed gold brads and some pop-dots.

This one I like and kind of looks retro to me. Neal liked the colors, which makes sense since he luvs orange. I should have added some avocado green and it would look like my mom's kitchen in the 70's! It is fun tho and the ink I used is Groovy Guava and So Saffron, while the cardstock is Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun, somehow they work together. Then some shimmery golden ribbon, some flower rhinestones and my dragonfly punch. The patterned papers are also Memory Boutique.

This third one is Purely Pomegranate and Pacific Point, ink and cardstock and more Memory Boutique patterned paper. Neal said this one looks like a grandma card. What?! Oy, men! Anyway, there's some shimmery cream ribbon, pink rhinestones and the flower is a Sizzlits die cut. So then let's talk about the blue bow, ya. Ok, so I was walking around the warehouse at work and found a shelf full of spools of unused dusty lonely wire. So me being crafty and all (hee, hee) I'm wondering what I can do with it, right, and then I spot this blue and decide geez that looks like the new Pacific Point color! So I ask the manager if I can take a little snippet and low and behold when I get home and compare them tah-dah looky, looky it's spot on! And being that's it wire it bends and stays where you want it! I also used a little bit of it to tie the flower onto the ribbon. I'll have to spend a little bit more time out in the warehouse I think!

It's been a busy day and here and I think you've heard enough of my ramblings for today and since it is supper time already, I'll save the rest of today's escapades for tomorrow, so you can call this a Monday Part 1 post to be continued tomorrow! Let's hope tomorrow is a little less hectic! How do I find time to work? I'm too busy to go back to work next week!

Peace and Luv!

Hi there! Today I made 3 cards from one patterned piece of paper from KI Images, called Alpine Multi Stripe. I didn't use any stamps (shame on me), but anyway this first one I used Riding Hood Red, Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel and white, a Sizzlits heart, some twine and a red heart rhinestone.

This next one I used some Sizzlits letters and heart and tied it up with some ribbon. The cardstock for the card itself and the letters are Brocade Blue.

The last one is kinda hard to see, but I used Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze cardstock, some thin off white ribbon, 4 blue rhinestones and the snowflakes are also Sizzlits. This was a fun little project. Now I'll just have to send them out to people I know that actually have snow! Anybody interested?

I did a little shopping this morning, crazy as that idea was. I didn't stay out long, just hit Penney's and Joann's and then I got a splitting headache, ran thru Mickey D's drive thru for some iced coffee, came home and took an aspirin and laid down with a movie and napped for about a half an hour. It was gone when I woke up, so that's when I whipped these 3 cards out. We had some little steaks on the grill (sorry) and some leftover sides and now we're getting ready to watch Burn After Reading. It's actually supposed to get down to like 38 tonight - yikes!!

So I've been cleaning out my filing cabinets and straightening a little bit and I'm thinking about what I might do next. When I start looking thru magazines and layouts I've saved, my head starts spinning in many directions. How about a whole month of Dragonflies? Maybe.

Anyway, I hope you had a good Friday, not sure if I'll post over the weekend or not. I may just build up my inventory. So thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend if I don't post until Monday and take care.

Peace and Luv,

Merry Christmas Eve! Here's a card I made for my friend and co-worker. She luvs these gals and I made of bunch of cards for her this year with them. So I thought she'd get a kick out of this. Can't wait for her to see it. we are. I wrapped all of the kids presents last night. Of course we fell short of wrapping paper on the one big present for all 3 of them - Rockband!! Oh boy am I going to have a headache tonite! Anyway, I'm getting off work at 2 and then I've got to get home and make some food for dinner at 5ish. Neal's siblings will be over by 4 and the kids will be there all day. I hope I didn't forget anything. It's time to stop stressing and just enjoy the day.
This was a quick gift card holder that I made for the owners that I work for. We just got them a card towards a shopping center down the road that has stores, movies and restaurants. What else do you get someone that has everything right?

Also, I'm sure that I shared with you that I had just recently joined ChemoAngels and had been assigned someone that I was sending cards to. Well I received this email yesterday: {Dear Jeannie, I am sorry to inform you that your patient has asked to be removed from the ChemoAngels program at this time. It is always a sad situation when this occurs, but please know that it is in no way a reflection on you. Thank you so much for faithfully angeling your patient! We appreciate all you did, and I'm sure your buddy appreciated it as well.} This doesn't obviously make me feel real happy and so I hope that I was able to bring some happiness to the family while I could during a difficult time, I just wasn't expecting to get this so soon. They did ask if I would like to sponsor another, but I'm not sure....have to think about it. I didn't even know her, but I had fun sending the cards and letters that I did in hopes of making her day a little better.

And so..............Live for and enjoy today and every great moment in it and take care.

Peace and Luv!

Happy Christmas Eve-Eve?!! Whatever. Anyway, there's no snow here, obviously, but I know a lot of you out there are living it right now, so here's Snoopy dressing up his snowman for the holidays. This stamp is from Stampendous I believe. I just used scraps of paper and ribbon laying around and added a snowflake brad to the ribbons. Gotta luv Snoopy no matter what he's doing. He's my fav!!

Here's a pic of our fireplace, we did light a fire last nite since it was cold and rainy during the game, which I don't want to talk about. Anyway, I've been working on the floral arrangement for awhile. It turned out bigger than I thought it would, so I had to even the other side out with big candles, but it does look pretty.

So here's the floral arrangement up close. I used to be the floral department manager at Michael's and I guess I miss putting these together, which I didn't think I would, but I did have fun working on this one. The snowman is turned at a funny angle here, I should have just taken him down for the picture, but anyway, the flowers are very glittery and when the lights are on it I'm pretty happy with it. Now that I've gotten used to it being there, I'll have to dress it up for all of the seasons and holidays.

Well that's about it for me today. Don't mean to be a downer, but I'm pretty much just ready for this to all be over and start the new year fresh again. Things gotta be better next year, right?!

Take care.

Peace and Luv,

Hey there! Well we're almost there, aren't we?! Just a couple of days to the big day and I'm about as ready as I'm going to get I think. This card was made with the tree stamp from the Fun & Fast Notes set and Earth Elements paper and markers along with some off white. Of course there are rhinestones on the tree and on the side, some red sheer ribbon and I used the small scallop Fiskars scissor and the large star punch. This is a good year round set and I think the first time I've used the tree.

Over the weekend we didn't really do much and yet it was busy with the kids and we did get a little shopping in. We had the kids gather up a bunch of pine cones around the neighborhood to put on our little back patio for decoration, so they had fun running around doing that. We spray painted a patio set that was Neal's moms that had been in storage for awhile and it fits perfectly, and so cute. Neal made the kids their favorite pancakes and what Vanna calls "meat circles" Sunday morning and then we just settled in and watching some football.

I've got 3 more working days this week, I guess they're cutting us loose early Wednesday, but it will probably be very quiet and slow. Not even many people on the road this morning on the way to work. I was actually on time!!

Have a great Monday and take care!

Peace and Luv!

TGIF!! Can you say rhinestones?! I took this picture at a weird angle so you could see all of them, but unfortunately it washed out the colors a bit. This stamp is one that I've had for probably at least 5 years or so I'd guess but I bring it out every year it's just so cute. I just colored him in a bit with markers and then using the background paper I cut some of the glittery stars out and pop dotted them. I used some ribbon and twine and my zig zag Fiskars scissor. Not sure who makes the patterned paper, but the solid paper is Blue Bayou. I also used the ticket corner punch and a small star punch.

I've just got a couple more presents to buy at this point and I'm all set. We do have to decide what to make for the Christmas Eve party at our place, and shop for that, but that's about it I think anyway. We will have the kids this weekend, so we'll have to find something fun to do with them. Today is the last day of school for the kids and Neal, so he's pretty excited. He was busy doing some final grading last nite, but he's so looking forward to 2 weeks off.

It's just in the 50's still here, but we're supposed to see the 60's today and for the weekend. To answer your question Carol - I only kind of miss the snow on Christmas day, but that's it!!! I'm happy to not have to look out the window first thing in the morning to see if I need to leave an hour earlier than usual, boots, hats, scarves, yuk. Neal and I were actually talking about not having to scrape the car in the morning and shoveling a path to it and stuff when we saw all of the snow on the news, some right here in AZ, but north of Phoenix.

Well have a great weekend everybody - don't stress too much about next week - take care and be careful out there if you do live where the weather is bad right now!

Peace and Luv!

A very simple card that I did late last nite so I'd have something to post for you here today. I'm disappointed as to how the picture turned out tho because the sentiment sez sparkly wishes and the snowflake paper is really sparkly and glittery and it doesn't show up at all. Anyway, I used just a few markers and a rhinestone, and that's about all I had time for before I went to bed.

I did get to watch Top Chef last nite. If you watch, do you think that the whole refrigerator thing was a hoax put on by the show? You gotta wonder. And then for the two that were most affected by it to have not only the help of the others, which I thought was cool, but then to have some of the best dishes? I think it's interesting that Martha was the guest taste tester judge too, but I'd like to see her come with with something in 45 minutes. I don't think she could do it, her recipes are pretty involved. Also, has anybody seen her daughter's show on the Fine Living channel called Whatever, Martha! ? It's pretty funny. Her daughter actually rips on her mom about how she does things and how she had to grow up. It's some humor worth seeing.

What else - the Biggest Loser is over and I'm glad that Michelle won. She looks great, as they all do, and she seems like a great person inside too. I think the previews show that another one is starting up right away tho? Not sure I'm ready for that.

It finally stopped raining here for awhile right now and the sun is out. It's just in the 50's which is c-o-l-d for here, and not sure if we're getting more rain later today or not. We still grilled out some chicken last nite tho!!! Yum.

I think I'm done with all of the cards I need to get out finally. Why did I wait so long? If I just bought a box of cards and had to address them it would be easy, but creating each individual card with a personal sentiment inside takes time. What was I thinking? Now I understand why some people are already posting Valentine cards on their blogs, but I still won't be doing those for awhile yet. I also got the packages I need to get in the mail too - to a tune of $46! All gift certificates next year!!

I have been enjoying all of your blogs out there, and I'm proud of the ones that can continue to post everyday right now. You're awesome! If you're here checking in on me feel free to write in a comment, I always appreciate you visiting!

Peace and Luv!
A simple little merry & bright card for you today, even tho it's not very bright in Arizona right now. It's raining and cloudy out, which is unusual to see here. Still trying to get all of my holiday cards out the door, but I keep remembering someone else that I should send a card to. Is everybody as stressed as I am right about now? I thought I had things under control, but I'm not sure I do at this point. I am looking forward to the 11 days off tho!

There hasn't been much on tv to even tivo these days to watch when I do have a minute to sit down. Tonite is the Biggest Loser finale, so I'll watch that, and record House to watch later. The Bachelor starts on the 5th, that should be some pretty good humor right there. I still haven't seen anything about a new Big Brother yet tho. We also did rent the Dark Knight last Friday night. It creeped me out. Enough said.

I did get a big container of doggie cookies and a squeaky holiday bunny to send to Dixie. I also got a card from my ex-mother-in-law and she's looking forward to having Dixie over the holidays to visit again. My ex just lives 3 hours away from his parents now, which is why he was excited about moving from California to Omaha. Not sure why else you would be, but I'm happy that they get to be together for the holidays. Dixie sure has won over her grandma's heart, but grandma is also one of the best cooks I know! I miss my sweet little girl.

Have a great Tuesday and drop me a comment - I luv to hear from ya!

Peace and Luv,
Snoopy Skating on Friday! One of my favorite guys and new for me from Stampabilities. The markers and paper are Always Artichoke and Taken with Teal. I used some glitter Stickles on his cap and then the ribbon is from American Crafts and the trees are a Sizzlits die cut. This is a gift card holder inside. He looks so happy, doesn't he?

Here's a picture of a gorgeous plate that was for sale, I just didn't happen to have $300 something on me at the time! I'm really not sure how they actually did this, the guy selling it was not exactly friendly either because of my camera, so I didn't ask. I suppose you'd just display this somewhere that it wouldn't get bumped into or played with by tiny hands, so it wouldn't work at our place anyway. Still a beautiful piece of art.

This is a restaurant in downtown Tempe, not sure I've ever had vietnamese food, and really not sure I'm that outgoing enough about it to try, but you never know I could luv it! It wasn't open at the time that we were there, but of course it caught all of my attention immediately. I bet their decorating could be interesting too and fun for me to look at. So anyway it's on my list of places to try some day.

Next is a picture of Neal holding the dragonfly metal stake that he got me, but you can't really see it very well. I'll have to take another picture of it now that it's in the ground, I just luv it! Anyway he's also, at this point, holding the kids' balloons and Allie's blanket while they're off running around somewhere looking at something, he's such a good dad! I think the kids were looking at some bug display at this point, but I can't be sure.

That's it for the dragonfly pictures. There was a picture of me that didn't turn out with a visor that was painted, but it was all blurry. As you can see, it just was a great time and I'm glad that we were able to enjoy it together. Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Tonite we'll be watching Dark Knight and probably eating chinese food. So many mixed reviews and things out there about this movie but we both want to see it and I'll let you know what I think about it!

I guess this weekend we've got to get some shopping done, since next weekend we'll have the kids. I've got my little list of the things I need to get for my nieces and nephews, some in Wisconsin and some in Colorado so I've got to get them all in the mail so they get them on time.

I hope you all have a great weekend and sorry I'm talking about grilling out too much to all of you stuck in the snow right now! Be safe out there, have a great weekend, and drop me a line anytime - I luv to hear from you and I think about each and every one of you all the time and I wish we could get together some day and meet, you just never know what can happen, right?!

Peace and Luv,
Another Lola card and Happy Thursday! I did just get this cute tree paper, but I have no idea who makes it. Maybe My Mind's Eye, but not positive. Otherwise, still using the Earth Elements markers and paper and sheer ribbon, blah, blah, know the routine. But she is cute, ya?!

Below is little miss Ali climbing on the rocks at the Festival of the Arts and having fun. She does luv to pose for the camera!
This picture is of some of the entertainment going on. This guy was having his dog do a bunch of tricks. It's a fuzzy jack russell, and we already know how smart they are because that's what Dixie is!!
This one is of Neal and the kids digging more decorations out of storage, always so exciting to see the stuff they know they have, but new again to them every year.
Here's Vanna putting a little Santa on top of tree, and her picture oranament on there too just below it, of course!
That's about it for pictures today. Tomorrow will be dragonfly day I think.

We had the kids over last nite for dinner, we just grilled out burgers and hot dogs, it's what they enjoy the most, with some fries and rings and baked beans. Our own little kitchen cook out. My plan after they left was to get some more work done on cards, but I cleaned up and sat down on the couch for what I thought would be just a minute or two. You know what happened next, I fell asleep. Oh well, I needed it I guess. It just meant having to get up earlier this morning to iron some clothes for today tho.

Have a great day!

Peace and Luv,
Hey there! Here are a couple more of the Lola Rose Christmas cards I've been busy making for a friend of mine. On this one she's got her red boots on and her party dress and she's ready to go! I used Earth Elements markers and paper for both and the patterned papers I'm not sure about. They've just been hanging out in my Christmas paper box.

This next one is a little naughty Santa's helper I guess. She's got her little Santa outfit on, red bows on her toes and I drew in the fishnet stockings just for a little bit more fun. I also used glitter Stickles and sheer ribbons and of course - rhinestones!!

Now for some great news....when I took the pictures of these cards and downloaded them, out came all of my pictures from the weekend that I thought I lost! All 68 of them! Do not ask me why they did not download on Monday with the picture of the Twigs card, nor did they show up when you hit the review button on my camera, because I cannot answer that. I can only say that I'm happy they were still on there and blame it on Monday morning!'s 2 of the pictures. One of the kids decorating the tree with their candy canes, and the other is from the festival with a big giant dressed up bunny with their balloons. I do, obviously, have more to share with you, which I will be doing over the next couple of days.

It's easy to take some pretty good pictures, with cute kids like they are!!

The only thing I really did last nite was watch/more like just listen to, while I was making cards and doing laundry, was the Biggest Loser. Nothing great, just ready to see the finale next week and keep my fingers crossed that Vicky doesn't win anything. She's just an awful person.

Well have an awesome day and take care!

Peace and Luv,

Hey there - I'm back to not feeling good again, Saturday I didn't feel really good at all, but I still was able to do the things we planned. Today I've got a flippin' headache, close to migraine at this point - and....... to top it all off I went to download all of my pictures that I took on Saturday and they're GONE!!! I obviously hit a button I shouldn't have at some point and I'm just so disappointed and mad at myself I could cry. We went to the Festival of the Arts in Tempe on Saturday and afterward we got a Christmas tree and the kids decorated it and we had just an awesome time that I wanted to share with you. Neal did take a few pictures of the tree decorating with his camera, so at least we may have a couple, but still. Anyway.....

This card is a stamp called Twigs from Whipper Snapper Designs and I used Rich Regals papers and markers. The striped paper is from My Mind's Eye, some shimmery ribbon and then I used Fiskars scallop snowflake border punch. I put blue rhinestones in the centers of all of the snowflakes. I also used a light blue Color Box ink around the edges. Cute little guy, hard to mess up.

So, one story that I can tell you about from Saturday was about some of the uptight artists because here I am walking around taking pictures of EVERY dragonfly I see, and there's this tent right with a painting way on the top of it, so I'm walking and snapping pictures and this guy comes running out from his tent yelling ma'am, ma'am, I don't allow pictures of my artwork. I said to him I just like dragonflies and so he made me delete the picture from my camera, then he sees that I've got a dragonfly necklace on and he like points his finger at it saying oh ya I can see that, well let me get my card for you. I just kept walking. What an ass! Sorry, but what the heck did he think I was going to do with it, reproduce his already crappy overpriced artwork?! I was in shock at the time, I think, or I would have had a few more choice words for him. Shouldn't he have taken it as a compliment that I was taking a picture of his work? Geez, people try and recreate all of the great artists in the world, and this no-name guy should worry that his stuff would be copied? I don't think so.

Neal did get me a dragonfly metal sculpture that we put by our front door that I'll have to take a NEW picture of. He is such a sweetheart and carried that thing around the whole afternoon. That was the only thing we purchased, besides cinnamon coated almonds for Quentin, but there was music and a guy doing tricks with his dog (a jack russel of course) that the kids enjoyed too.

Lastly, I'll just talk about the Amazing Race a little bit to say that last nite was the finale and it wasn't who I wanted to win in the beginning, but when you think about it the brother and sister that did win were deserving of it since they came in first on probably half of the episodes. Anyway, it was entertaining and I guess I'm happy the way it ended. Can't wait for the next season of Big Brother now - when does that start - the end of January?

From the time I started writing this until now my headache seems to have gotten a little better. Must be because I vented a little bit, (thanks for listening), or it's the Peppermint Mocha coffee I've got in front of me, maybe both. At any rate, I hope your Monday is great. Tonight I've GOT to finish up some Christmas cards, not sure what else - some Monday Night Football (I'm going to skip right over talking about the Packer game yesterday) and just take it easy a little bit.

Take care!

Peace and Luv,

I'm feeling so much better today - Happy Friday!!! Here's my Packer green and gold card for the holiday. I always make one for my sister still in Wisconsin, so here is this year's version. Lola Rose is holding the tree this time and I've got lots of silver baubles from her hair to the tree to the middle of the ribbon. The papers and markers are Earth Elements, some thin sheer gold ribbon and natural twine. Luv the twine colors that are out these days! I did receive my annual Elvis Christmas card from my sister already, so I'd better get hers out soon.

Last nite we went to a sports bar for dinner. We didn't feel like cooking and since we've got the kids this weekend, we thought we'd go out just us two for awhile. The first place we tried was standing room only and we couldn't find a seat anywhere and the second place we tried was barely half full. We had fun anyway. Then we stopped at Pier 1 on the way back to look for nutcrackers that his daughter collects, but there wasn't anything different or unique. Then we came home and I watched the rest of Top Chef because I fell asleep on it the nite before and Grey's Anatomy. I'm so disappointed in Grey's and what the heck are they doing with Izzi and Denny?!!

Tomorrow is a full day from kids gymnastics and basketball and a haircut to an art festival in Tempe that I cannot wait for. It's outside, they close down some of the streets and the weather will be perfect in the 70's.

Just wanted to share another cutie pie picture here today that was taken at another festival we were at - Luv ya my Neal-y!!

Have a great weekend!

Peace and Luv,

Hello there. Another quick Christmas card for you here made with some Chocolate Chip, and Kiwi Kiss cardstock. Not sure who made the patterned snowflake paper, I've had it around since last year. I used some glittery Stickles on the cake frosting and a couple of markers. Then used my scallop Fiskars scissors, some twine and a heart button.

I'm feeling like C-R-A-P today, not sure why, just woke up feeling queasy. I'm at work, but I sure don't want to be. I'm so tired that if you threw a blanket over me I swear I'd be asleep in a minute. I've gotten plenty of sleep the last couple of nites, so hopefully it's just a little bug that will go away soon. I brought some soup and crackers for lunch, so we'll see how that goes. I'm going to sit outside in the sunshine, maybe that will help too. I've got lots of Christmas cards to still get done, so I don't have time for this and with the company shutting down I can't use any of the few vacation days I have or I won't get paid.

I did watch the Biggest Loser last nite. This season's people just make me crazy. The final 3 are left, so just a few episodes left but I don't really care who wins. Amazing Race is down to the final 3 too, and the mom and son duo came in last this week and that's who I wanted to win so they're gone.

Well, it's about 12:05 pm and I guess I should get a few things done before my lunch at 12:30. I do hope you are all feeling and doing well out there. I luv to hear your comments, so drop me a few words if you're here visiting.

Take care -

Peace and Luv,
