Good Morning ladies.

I'm off today. WhooHoo!!Well, we had tons of rain and now it's dry as a bone again. I'll have to be running the sprinklers all day today.

As soon as I have my coffee I'll working on pairing up my list of secret sisters so you will get your sister today. I've received all the questionaire's now.

Is there anyone that hasn't received their last package? If everyone has we will reveal the list of all the sisters.

Good Morning Ladies, with a special hi to Danelle so glad to see you pop in.

1. the usual...what are your top 3 items you'd love to get from your wishlist?

I would say Ranger Ink's Craft Spinner for blending tools, The Ranger Distress Ink Seasonal Colors, any stamps or punches. But really anything, I like to be surprised.


2. Anything going on in your life that you'd like to share with the group?

Not to much, life is kind of boring at the moment. It could use some spicing up in a good way.

3. Married? Kids? Ages? Pets???

Not married, No kids, two dogs. Black Labs - Journey, who turned 4 this past Sunday and Jasper who was 1 in April.

Imelda, I've had this page ready to be created laying on my desk for 3 weeks now. I'm hoping that today is the day to finish it!! LOL!!!

My house could use some sprucing up but once I get started on that I won't stop so I suppose I'm not coming out of my scrap room until I have a page complete.

Will someone bring me lunch? LOL!!

Yea!!! I've been claimed! Hi big sis!!! How are you?!
I was just about to log off and create my secret identity.

Anything you'd like to send me I'm sure I'd love.
Right now my scraproom is quite embarrassing. We have a huge walk in closet, and I mean huge!!!! So I have taken over one entire side of it, but the wall paper is hideous and there is no decoration. :(. Eventually I'd like to take over the kids playroom hehehe and would like it to be pink black and grey. I will try to make my room look a little presentable and take a photo to share. But really anything you'd like to send would be great!

wow already 16 pages in, guess I should have come over sooner! lol

For those of you who didn't participate this last round, I'm a regular but won't be participating this go-round. AND I just got engaged, so that'll exlpain why I'm sharing the link below, it's the ring I bought my "fiance", I almost said bf! this will be his "engagement" ring of sorts since I proposed to him. He works in a restaurant and probably won't be able to wear it much, especially as it's messy and heat is a conductor, so I kept it simple.

Hi ladies. I can officially say I am almost recovered from the tonsil part of my illness. I was living on room temp pudding and water until day 9,day 10 a little bread with pnut butter, day 11 I had pancakes, day 12 soup and a little pasta. I can't remember all that I've told you but one week after surgery I was given a new med, tylenol with codene had a reaction-thought I was having a heart attack and ended up in the hospital, same day I was told I had lymphoma. The next morning I spent the day at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics meeting my new oncologist. Yesterday I had the heart scan, pet scan and bone marrow test. I was worried about the bone marrow but it was ok. The worst part was my veins kept giving out and I had to keep getting new iv's for the pet scan. Thursday I get a port so that will help. That is also when I find out what stage cancer I have and get the plan of attack. Friday is chemo. Good news, last night was the first night I slept in my bed. IN the past if I would lie down I felt like I was choking, so that feeling is gone. Still eating soft foods but getting my strenght back. I can also go more than a few seconds without sipping water:):):)
I don't want to monopolize this thread all about me so you are filled now:) carry on and have a fantastic round. I will pop in occassionally.
Thanks for all your prayers and support. HUGS!!

JCI

Got my little sis, now to spoil her!!!

MY TOP THREE:

1. STICKLES

2. LIQUID PEARLS

3. PRIMA STAMPS, OR ANYTHING PRIMA.

ANYTHING HAPPENING IN MY LIFE.

Not a thing. I do need to clean my house, blah! I want to get my scraproom put together, but it's just tooooooooo hot!!!!!

ABOUT ME:

I'm married to my DH for almost 23 years (Aug). We were penpals, we met, and the rest is history. I have two DDs, Jaque, 24. Jaque has to DDs, Kaitlyn, 3 (she will be 4, in August) and wee Cammy, 2. Jaque, is in a relationship with a schmuck, enough said......... Greta, 21 is the baby and as of this time we do not talk, her life has spiraled out of control and I'm not wanting to be part of it!!

PETS:

DOGS:

GREAT DANE - Rupurt, he's an old fella, not sure how old he is as my DH saw an ad in the local paper that said he was FREE to a good home. He had been abused by a woman, been in fights, and had heartworm, now he loves his MUM, chills out where ever HE wants, and is heartworm free.

HEINZ 57 - Jazzmin is Pit Bull, Lab, Boxer, Heinz 57 mix, lol. We do not know the age of her either, but we figure she's now about 8. My DD Jaque, found her walking down an ally and brought her home. She was a bag of walking bones, so after an all clear from the vet, Jazzmin got fattened up and lives Lady of the Manor. Jazzy, has a growth on her throat toooooo close to her jugular vein and it can't be worked on because of the closeness, so each day is another day for her.

CATS:

MAGENTA - 17 years old and named after a charachter in the film, 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'. Has food amnesia, always forgets she's eaten. It will soon be time for her to walk over the Rainbow Bridge as she has two growths on her and she's lost a fair bit of weight.

RIFF-RAFF - So named after a charachter in the film 'Rocky Horror Picture Show". She's 15 years old and loves to talk to you when you enter the kitchen, that's her stomping ground.

MUFFIN - Turtleshell, she's very shy, and chirps doesn't meow. Don't know how old she is, but is up there with Magenta and Riff-Raff.

qwaaaaaaaaaaawsee Magenta says "HI". lol

NESSIE - Orange tabby, named after the Loch Ness Monster. When she first came to live with us she was such a little monster. She was found at the coffee shop I once worked at and came home with me. Do you see SUCKER on my forehead?

MILLIE - Another find of my DD Jaque's. Millie is white and black, much like a milk cow, and so I gave her a cow like name. She is Miss Unsociable and talks to the cats in such a manner.

ATHENA - Is another Tutleshell and was not meant to stay with us, but when our friend found out the price of the pet deposit, she stayed. She's very mellow, a little flumpy, has the softest fur I've ever felt and does nothing with grace!

RASPUTIN - He's the cat that no one wanted said he was evil, had evil looking eyes. What can I say he's black with yellow/green eyes. He weighs a ton and talks to the birds all day long. I named him Rasputin after the Russian Monk, because it's said he had hypnotizing eyes!!

SCOTIA - The kitten my DH found on the side of a busy road whilst delivering newspapers. Scotia, is a gray long haired cat of some kind, he will hunt you down to get his hugs, loves his huggles and cuggles!! He, too is a beast in the weight dept.

I've told DH that when our five gereatrics (Rupurt, Jazzmin, Magenta, Muffin and Riff-Raff) have walked over the bridge, we are just going to be a small furbaby family.

That's it the whole family!!

If you want to know more just ask.

Now to leave love.

RACHEL - I remember my mum giving me hot orange squash when I had a cold (also honey, lemon and sugar), and during the winter time.

TINADN - Oh my goodness, you've had a time of it. My thoughts, prayers and best wishes are with you and your family!!!

TINA SCRAPS - Congratulations on your engagement!!!

I'm not doing the swap so I won't go into what I want, (everything.LOL) but a little about me:

I'm single and loving it!! Although I do have a pretty awesome boyfriend named John who I started dating about 9 months ago.

I live with my 1 cat named Smokey. He's a dark grey long haired cat. There's also a wild kitten running around outside that Smokey has adopted. Well I guess I have too since I feed it . Smokey bathes it though. LOL!! He loves on him/her constantly. It's just a tiny little thing so I call it Itty Bitty Kitty and I'm hoping to tame him/her someday.

I have 2 sons, Dane who is 32, married to Brigitte who we call Bree, and has 3 children. They are Shane, who will be 8 on Saturday, Brooke who just turned 6 and Drake who is 17 months.

My other son is Jarrod who is 30. Not married, no kids. He did however recently move in with his girlfriend who has 2 kids. Reese who is 11 and Amelia who is 5.

I have a small construction cleaning business where we go in and clean the new houses for the new owners to move in. I sub-contract primarily from Ryland homes right now, but do have a few custom builders that I do work for when they need me.

Oh, and I'm owner and operator of 'The Weinhold Resort' located in Orlando the city beautiful!! LOL!!

Hello Royal Sister! Yes, I am going to turn 50 during this round. Why is it that I still feel like I am in my 20s? Hopefully that won't change. My favorite colors are royal blue and purple. I will adore anything you want to give my. I have found that my sisters have excellent taste!

Dd starts her first day of kindergarten prep tomorrow. It's a program to try to get the kids used to the routine of full day kindergarten. She will be going everyday for 4 weeks this month
I know dd will be fine. Wish ME luck... Let's hope I don't cry.


Remember to take pictures! She will be fine! Does she take a backpack? My all time favorite picture of Preston is when he was 4 crossing the road, holding his dad's hand on his first day of pre-K. Just adorable!

Just back from vacay with my mom in Southern Indiana.

One of the coolest things we did while we were there was to attend an Amish Produce Auction. Everyday we headed out from the hotel in a different direction and let the roads (cow paths in some cases) take us wherever they led.

We saw Amish folk, covered bridges, and lots and lots of corn fields and soybeans!

Looking forward to getting some scrapping time in over the next few days. I am off until Sunday.

Hi ladies. I can officially say I am almost recovered from the tonsil part of my illness. I was living on room temp pudding and water until day 9,day 10 a little bread with pnut butter, day 11 I had pancakes, day 12 soup and a little pasta. I can't remember all that I've told you but one week after surgery I was given a new med, tylenol with codene had a reaction-thought I was having a heart attack and ended up in the hospital, same day I was told I had lymphoma. The next morning I spent the day at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics meeting my new oncologist. Yesterday I had the heart scan, pet scan and bone marrow test. I was worried about the bone marrow but it was ok. The worst part was my veins kept giving out and I had to keep getting new iv's for the pet scan. Thursday I get a port so that will help. That is also when I find out what stage cancer I have and get the plan of attack. Friday is chemo. Good news, last night was the first night I slept in my bed. IN the past if I would lie down I felt like I was choking, so that feeling is gone. Still eating soft foods but getting my strenght back. I can also go more than a few seconds without sipping water:):):)
I don't want to monopolize this thread all about me so you are filled now:) carry on and have a fantastic round. I will pop in occassionally.
Thanks for all your prayers and support. HUGS!!




Tons of prayers and hugs are going out to you!!!!

Saw this and had to share.

I'm fixin' to tell you something about being southern. Being southern doesn't mean that I'm not educated. I may say "ain't" and "y'all" and call you "Sweetie" or 'Honey" and I might "bless a lot of hearts" and I might even "piddle around". I'll greet you with a big "Howdy". All soda pop is "Coke" and I might refer to my grocery cart as a "buggy" and by golly that's okay. I'm polite and say "Ma'am" and "Sir". And if you hear a southern gal say, "Oh, h3ll no!!" you'd better run. Y'all have great day now ya hear!!!!

Ya it is a pretty cool manly ring. It had to be tough.
My uncle actually has a ring so shaped that it can be used as a bottle opener. That's pretty cool too!

That is exactly what it is. Those bidding on the veggies and fruits are the Englishers who resell them at the farm stands. It was totally cool but I didn't take many photos.

Just as the Amish do not carry personal photographs or display them in homes, they do not want others to take photographs of them. Refraining from taking photos is more than just a courtesy; it's a respect for the Amish and their way of life.

That being said I admit to taking a few photos of the Amish in buggys and snapped one quick photo of an Amish boy and his father from behind as they were walking in front of me.

Thanks for the birthday wishes ladies!

Michael just made me a birthday breakfast. We are going to go play 9 holes of golf this afternoon and then later we'll head to my mom's for a birthday dinner at one of my favorite restuarants.

Tomorrow I plan to scrap most of the day!

Rebecca - sounds like a great way to spend it bday.


So I took dd to school today. She woke up so excited. Let me take lots of pics, big smiles and then I guess she must have seen all the kids and some were crying and she started crying too. When her teacher took her inside, Ds started crying too and calling out her name. It was sad!
He cried and called out for her again when I was putting him into his car seat.

Hopefully she has fun and will go easier tomorrow.

I am here to claim my little sis: Sherri! I am so excited to big your big sis and I can't wait to start shopping!!! I have a TON of ideas!!

Is there any one item on your wishlist that you are dying to have?

And I see you love York's? One of my faves too.....If it cools down enough, I will try to send you some York's, but in this heat we're having, I'm thinking you'd be getting a melted minty mess....LOL

In the meantime, have a Happy 4th of July! I'm going to go light some fireworks!!!

Good Morning ladies. Happy 4th of July.

I don't think we are doing anything today. I'm bummed about that. But then again I don't really want to be out in this heat all day waiting for some fireworks either.

Has anyone gone to see Rock of Ages?

When I was trying to nudge Neil towards proposal (he!l - I'd waited 5 years already by that time and my patience was running thin!) I said to him one evening 'I do not want to be single for the rest of my life' and for a very quiet prolonged moment, he thought I meant I wanted him to leave! Then he realised (spelling it out is the only way) and I think the proposal was 8 weeks later!

My DH and I choose to get engaged at Christmas time to include the whole family in it, but he could not wait once had the rings. I came home from work on night at 9:30 pm, he watched my kids for me when I worked evenings, to a front entrance covered with rose petals. The roses petals lead upstairs and along the wall were post-it notes in asst. colours with love notes on them. At the top of the stairs I was given a choice of room 1(bathroom) or room 2(my bedroom). I chose room 1, he had drawn a hot bath for me and there were candles everywhere plus rose petals on top of the water. On the edge of the bath was a ring box, inside was a plastic ring with a note to go into room 2. When I open the door to my bedroom he was dressed in a suit and had music from a mixed CD he made for me playing and more candles and full roses this time. He got down on one knee and proposed.It was beautiful. My first husband never proposed so this was special treat for me. Once I excepted he went home so I could enjoy my bath and get a good night sleep before working in the morning. He is a wonderful considerate man. His mom raised him right!

Shana, that is so sweet and romantic!! What a wonderful proposal!!! I don't think John has that in him though. LOL!!!

I'm in no hurry to get remarried. The only reason I can see to do that right now is to be on his insurance and I don't want to get married for that reason alone. It's only been 9 months for us, so I'm still in the 'do I want to be with this man forever' stage. Of course I am 55 so I better start deciding.

Shana, that's SOOOOO romantic!! even if he had proposed, I couldn't imagine Jason coming up with something like that. He's affectionate, but not so much romantic, and sometimes clueless when it comes to women lol.
