He brings it home all fileted out & frozen. We smoke some, grill alot, & give away a few. It tastes so unbelieveably fresh, I can never eat the other stuff again. He is there 3 more days besides--so will have a bunch, that's for sure.
Wow Susie - awesome. You could always bring one down our way LOL
Now that's so funny how different people and places think. Starbucks is a standard meeting and appointment place here in Dallas. We are so spread out people often schedule meetings there. I've met with VP's, full teams, had interviews etc. It's convenient for us because it has Wi-Fi and comfortable seating. Funny funny!
Lorna, I mailed the phone back to hsn....they received it and I'm waiting for reimbursement...I don't believe it will be a problem.
Now we are looking at either the Samsung Exhibit or the T-Mobile Prism II....both are inexpensive compared to others on the market. Not sure which to order...but I did find out that the Prism does not have a dual camera...not that I'm in the habit of taking my picture.... I just feel we keep making the wrong decision.....just want someone to make decisions for us......job is up for grabs....pays nothing.....but I can feed you!
OMG, Pam sent me the most amazing box of goodies for the summer shoe swap thingy....she knitted me booties and they fit perfectly.....how sweet was that!!!!! AND she sent this unbelievable hand-dipped chocolate....I had a piece earlier and am fighting myself not to eat any more, tonight that is. I'm a chocolate snob and this is so amazing! I'm so glad dh is watching his sugar intake Also happy my jeans have stretch...but I'm finding that there is actually a point where even stretch jeans stop stretching Can't wait till it's fall so I can go out with a coat and hide the fluffiness. Well, of course, I know in reality the fluffiness can't be hidden with a coat....or can it?
Can anyone tell I'm babbling. It's called the vicodin blues....thinking of putting it to music.....
OK, so, what else do you want to discuss??? Christmas in July????? I almost bought 2 Christmas cookie jars off hsn today. I was strong....didn't!
Oh, dh and I went to dinner tonight at a favorite Turkish restaurant. Well this month (for 40 days) is the Muslim observance of Ramadan. Muslims are to fast from sunup to sundown. So, by the time the sun goes down, they are starving and so thirsty as they do not eat or drink, not even water. But I digress....so the Turkish restaurant serves Halal food. Halal is to Muslims what Kosher is to Jews. A practicing Muslim is to eat only Halal food.
But again, I digress.....so, the sun went down and the restaurant became a packed house of people enjoying their break from fast....
I had chicken cheese adana....ground chicken mixed with spices and Turkish cheese grilled over an open fire....yummo....with a shepherd's salad, and a bread to die for.......
OK.....eyes are closing....mine from being sleepy; yours from sheer boredom from reading about my exciting life. OK....tomorrow's saga will be Linda and Bob trying to hook up the new printer...
Good morning Linny! You have me already in stitches.
Like Bren, we here in this area often have business meetings at the Starbucks. But the Nutritionist??? Think not... Maybe they are getting a kick back from the coffee industry and that is why we are back to coffee being a good thing again. Wait 6 months and that will change.
The phone thing..... I have a T-Mobile and I picked a MY TOUCH phone. I have had it for a couple of years now and I LOVE IT! DH keeps talking about the I Phone (son has one) being better. I recently got a I-Phone 4 from work to use. I still LOVE my MY-Touch phone BETTER. It has dual cameras so that I can have video chat. Yes girls, we can have a skype. I have the ap on my phone just need to get familiar with how to do it.
Okay so I got a really good night's sleep. I still was thinking that I wanted to be home crafting today but I have to pay for my addiction to shopping, somehow.
May I wish all of my dear sweet sisters here a wonderful blessed day. May all your Godly armer be in place today so that the devil cannot touch you.
I received this on the FB feed and wanted to share it.....

Thanks for the reminder Linny. I especially like the reminder that what others think of me is none of their business. Whenever a conversation that shouldn't be heard is - it's never good. And honestly those that matter to me show me how they feel and that's enough.
Morning all. Woke up to a bellyache. I think I'll be lazy today and nurture it.
The TV broke last night so today need to be either computer day, cleaning day, or scrapping day. I wonder which will be the most likely candidate.
Feel better, Debbie! What days do you work now? I had been dealing with a bit of a stomach issue myself. One of those weird things--I changed my multi-vitamin to the store brand & I don't like to take it on an empty stomach like I do my other meds, so I was taking it with an anti-inflamatory that is taken after meal. Man-o-man! When it hurts like that, a person doesn't want to do too much experimenting to see what is causing the pain. Turns out the vitamin was reacting with the anti-inflamatory--STRANGE !
Well, my jubulation on hubby's fishing adventure ended abruptly. They only caught 5 salmon between the 3 of them and they were small. Stepson did leave last night with 30 lbs packed in his cooler to fly back to AZ. Hoping hubby & his brother have better luck today & Sat.
Keep me in your prayers tomorrow I go to see the cardiologist. I am hoping that all will be well. I am claiming it right now. I know my GOD hasn't brought me this far to leave me. I just need to do what I can to change my eating and physical activity. It's been raining here for 2 days now and it's supposed to rain tomorrow. So I haven't been able to go walk the track like I have been doing.
Well I have been writing on my machine so I hope that I will be able to pass a 120 speed test soon.
Bren I wish I could spend the night to the retreat but I am planning on coming to visit all you wonderful ladies while you create and hopefully create with you all.
Have a wonderful and blessed night ladies..
Happy belated Anniversary Linny!!!
Hey Stef how did things go with the cardio Dr?
I'm so thrilled to learn that you will be able to come join us for a visit. Please pop over to the planning thread, if you haven't done so yet, and browse our plans so far.
I'm just getting back from a 'missed' Dr. apt as a traffic accident has us backed up till there was no hope of getting to our apt on time. That's okay, I really wasn't feeling too well today. Just trying to catch up on the pc and rest up a bit. I'm still catching up so bear with me. bbl...
