YAYYYYY Giants...one more game!..that'll be a nail biter.
Jarvae...your husband sews??? Would love to see your cloak.
Jojo girl when do you sleep???? I'm still waiting for you to send some of that energy my way.
Wish the high school was 3 blocks away, Mel....being practically next door is a pain...one time a kid brought a gun to school..actually no gun was found so anyway it was probably a kid SAYING he brought a gun to school...anyway they locked down the school and there were news and police and traffic helicopters hovering right overhead (loud..annoying!!) and those news vans with the giant thingamabobs on top....and parents everywhere trying to get into the school...it was a mess. dd2 had to sit in a class for 4 hours and they couldn't even go to the bathroom...she did call me from her cell though so I knew she was ok.
And the homecoming fireworks display happened last night...every time one went up Bravo ran around barking..there was no calming him down....nice view though.
Tomorrow dh comes home so I gotta get in a couple chick flicks beforehand....gonna watch Practical Magic right now and have some ice cream..that baseball game made me hungry.
I will catch up tomorrow......already yakked too much and you're probably mostly all asleep anyway...except for Jojo...lol..hi!
LOL!!! I've been known to take cat naps...
Had a meeting with the local ATV club last night...we're getting more involved everyday) anyway...it went very well...alot accomplished and figured out next year's event schedule. Got some local business owners together and we are collaberating on a WINTERFEST...LOL!!! this is going to be fun. This will keep me young and busy,,,right??? It is to draw people in and to build good relations between owners of lodging. Plenty to go around...for the good of all...bring in revenue...
This hurricane,,,sheesh!!! I haven't been watching weather forecasts...will watch tomorrow morning and do some shopping and batten down the hatches. Received five calls from seasonals asking to secure this, that and the other thing...Hubby's job! Me I'm going to finish making valances for the kitchen and livingroom.
Hubby picked up a snowmobile...OIY another toy...and he plans on getting me one. I'd rather ride my ATV...know nothing about snowmobiles...Hubby saya I'll pick it up like anything else...
Have a crew coming into the cabin Tuesday... yes... THIS Tuesday to cut into my livingroom floor....we are putting in a staircase down to the cellar and finishing that off as a large livingroom and then THIS existing livingroom will become a diningroom. Have a crew coming next week to work on the roof of the store...then to discuss and tweek the plans for INSIDE the store...I'll have to remember Thanksgiving is coming at some point...Believe me...I'll probably start mumbling nonsense pretty soon! Who's on first, What's on second... I have about 9 notebooks going now trying to keep things straight....
jeannie...I'm going to bed now and praying my mind shuts down for a little bit!
Everyone in Sandy's path, stay safe. I wish they had given this storm another name. I have a first cousin named Sandy and she is one of the nicest persons on earth.
Thinking of everyone tonight. It was a very busy weekend. My brother and his wife came up Sat. afternoon. (they live about 2 hrs. away)We had supper at my sister's house. We got to see the new baby and hold him.
We had our usual group of the 12 of us for dinner. The adult kids always clean up but I still had two big pans of soup to take care of.
Morning all! It is soooooo beautiful outside. Its only 60 degrees! What a nice break from the heat. Yesterday I sat outside on the swing in my lanai with a book, my Ipad and a glass of wine snuggled up in sweatpants and a sweatshirt. Oh did that feel nice!
ACU to here. Can't find my mojo for nothin. I had to make a birthday card for a friend yesterday-took me 3 hours to make one stupid card!
Everyone in the path of Sandy be safe! Looks like Mother Nature is ticked off about something between this cold weather hurricane and snow. Yikes!

donna that sound like a very good me time
wonder how terry doing!!
stay safe if sandy is coming your way now they calling it halloween storm
hi to everyone else and acu2h
We are back from another wonderful weekend at Faire. But WOW it was cold. I am usually overly hot so I wasn't worried too much about being cold in my garb. But I had to stay in the sun all day to stay comfortable. Then at night we had bonfires going everywhere. Plus I had my cloak, a hat, and my hand warmers. I'll post pics when I can.
It's still cold here near Dallas, but no snow. I am working from home today and have sweat pants, sweat shirt, and socks on and I'm still thinking about turning on the heat for a bit. I am going to go to the store soon and get stuff to make cabbage soup. I don't typically like soups and this is the only one I make. Basically I make it when I have given up on warm weather and am surrendering to the thought that it is now cold.
Thanks everyone for the well wishes on the job. It would be a totally different job so I'm kind of wondering how that would be. We'll see what happens
Jarvae...your husband sews??? Would love to see your cloak.
Yep, he does. Well, now I do a little of the sewing as well but back then I didn't know a single thing about sewing. I will see if I have any pics of me wearing the cloak. I might have one from this weekend. He also made his shirt and doublet that he usually wears.
Hi gals!!! Hope all who are in Sandy's path are buttoned down, safe and sound. It was mild here temp wise all day long...we have moving clouds, wind picked up as the afternoon went on...and it has begun to drizzle, spit, drizzle...things are picking up some but we are on the outskirts of it.
Made chicken pot pie for dinnah...YUM!
jeannie I slept off and on....back with the crazy panic/hot flashes again... they had subsided for most of the summer...and I had stopped taking a natural supplement which seemed to help. So I'm starting back up on them...but it's a pain right now. Great effect for Halloween...(your eye) wonder why that happens though once a year to cause that. I did it once because of the way I sneeze...I tend to hold it in...just have always sneezed that way, even as a little kid...drove my Mom nuts!!! The one time it happened was 3 days before I was to go and have my senior pics done. Kept the appt. and they touched it up for me.
Hope Anna is doing OK!!!
Back to crocheting...trying to finish off an afghan for "Grampa" (no relation) just a nice dear old friend...we knew back home and he has been coming up to stay at the campground. Billy found him a camper, now he will be seasonal next year. So I wanted to make him a "homecoming gift".
Curtains are going slowly...need to pull apart sewing machine to clean it and give it a lil oil...
behind on house work...have a full day of THAT tomorrow. It's gonna rain anyway...LOL! Like I need an excuse! HA!

It is pretty bad here....lots and lots of snow and wind, blizzard conditions. You would think it was the middle of winter here. We were even mentioned on The Weather Channel because it has gotten so bad.
Hope everyone else is doing well and not be affected by Sandy.
Hi ladies sorry I haven't been around I have been sick and October is a really bad month for me... Yesterday was the anniversary of my son's death I made this layout yesterday in honor of him. There is a close up of the details in my gallery as well
Good Morning....I'm baaaccckkkk (as Donna says)! And it took 2 hrs to cu on love and chatter. I tried for a few days but I was so exhausted each night I gave up.
The event store was a huge success! We made a gross of $42,800 and it should net after expenses about $16,000 profit. We were happy happy campers! Alabama was a surprise...very beautiful country, way tooooo much humidity, and everything down there is fried---including dill pickles! Fried tomatoes, fried okra, fried squash, fried catfish fried chicken....the chlosterol average must rock the nation! As my DH so eloquently stated: I was afraid to cough!
We had a great time (missed ci in here tho)! And I must say (sorry Denise) but Huston has the weirdest airport transit system. Thankfully, we had a 90 min layover because 30 min was spent going from Concourse B to C to B to A to C to the end and back to B, then C, then D, and finally E--where we about ran to the gate. Weird was not the work I used then!
JoJo--that ghost walk experience sounds very cool. Hope you enjoy it and did enjoy it. I like your idea too of a winterfest.
Denise--hope your allergies are better. Love the new avi--they are so cute!
Donna, Anna, Cheryl, etc--I'll look everyone up at Pinterest tomorrow when I join. I'd love to see what's there.
Jarvae--I'd love to see your costume. The only sewing my DH does is try to open the machine to see how it works.
Need to run Again!...Picking up the dogs from the kennels (2 hrs away) and we also pu our new puppy Ruby! What a doll...the other dogs have a big surprise!!!
Everyone stay safe with this funky weather!!!
Welcome back to the group Jamie.
And by all means, Melissa join in..welcome.
My nephew lives in Queens....not sure what part...pretty sure it is not the part that had that terrible fire. He was on facebook a lot yesterday but nothing today so I gotta call my brother.
Hi Terry....you oughtta do a layout of your airport fiasco..with a map and strings showing how you ran back and forth and back and forth.
Stay bundled up Anna.
I may scrap...got some cool pics of the girls' Halloween costumes...did a bunch of chores today so I can scrap guilt-free.
I'm reading JK Rowlings A Casual Vacancy..it has my attention...sure ain't nuthin like Harry Potter.
I have read very little Stephen King...don't know why..it was too scary years ago but now that kinda stuff no longer scares me. What is the Dark Tower Series about?
Get this...my sister in law is a HUGE King fan....every book in hard cover...autographed photos....met him...all that...so she loaned me one she thought I would love in paper back...dropped it in the toilet....yep I read in the bathroom..at least I used to...anyway I told her about it ..she laughed and I bought a replacement...and dropped IT in the toilet...never finished the book nor saw the movie...it was the Stand.
I just read a bit about the Dark Tower....sounds intriguing...almost afraid to buy it....may drop it in the toilet.
I have read some Dean Koontz. (Odd thomas which is going to be a movie....By the Light of the Moon ( a fave) and the Taking (very creepy.
Are you sorry you asked.
Jeanie - When I was younger, I read Stephen King all the time. Later, I just didn't care for it. These books sound intriguing to me. The problem is I already have a BUNCH of books downloaded to my Kindle Fire waiting to be read. LOL
I hope you don't drop your Kindle down the toilet!!
