Good morning!

Denise- Congratulations!! What a cute name. In the one photo on fb, I looked at it and thought "she looks like Cooper!" - usually I don't think newborns look like anybody but a newborn. LOL
Hope your DD is doing fine and doesn't have any complications.

Anna- I was going to add Tom Selleck to my list. LOL

Ashley- hope the week goes by quickly for you and your cough improves.

Terry- if you get to check in - enjoy your time away.

Andrea- ice cream gone yet?

Danielle- working on Christmas cards today?
I'd better start or you all will be getting a store bought card.

Cheryl- it is rainy and cold here today. We need the rain, so I won't complain--well maybe a little bit. It always rains or is windy when I get my hair cut--which is today.

Katy and Jeannie---come back!!!

Hi! Muddling my way through my 10-6 week at the lab. I guess because I'm use to my 8-4 days, being 10-6 just messes with me something terrible. I just have two more days and then I don't have another 10-6 week for a while (I'm hoping for the rest of the year). The next two days are going to be rough, though, since tomorrow I have to go straight to dance after work and Friday, it's straight to Scouts for Investiture Ceremony (a/k/a the GORP Ceremony....GORP is this crazy trail mix our troop makes at Investiture and only at Investiture)

Anna- I'm about 65.5% better...I'm just having a wicked time shaking the cough I have but, if it's related to the allergy I have to vaccinations, it'll be 4 to 6 weeks with this cough.

Cathe- I wandered out of the hospital at like 6:04 (had to clock out at exactly 6PM...then go to my locker to get my jacket and backpack) and it was raining. I was glad I had my baseball cap in my backpack.

Good morning!!

Ashley- I remember GORP. Sometimes the room mothers would make it for a treat at Halloween.

We finally got some much needed rain. Sure wish I could send it to CA where they really need it!!

Ashley- sorry you can't shake that cough! I wouldn't like working 10-6 either.

Danielle- that would be nice if you could go stay with your sister after the baby come.

Denise- such sweet photos of Cooper and Sadie.

Gee when is Terry coming back?

Anna- are you ok?

Cheryl- I missed talking to you last night.

Andrea- is the ice cream gone yet?

Kay- have you been making cards?

Katy and Jeannie- please return!! Katy- you're not near the fires are you? They are so awful!!!

Good morning ladies!

Ashley, I am off next week too. We are supposed to get much cooler weather next week too. It was 80 here yesterday!

Cathe, I think Tom Selleck is so handsome and from what I have read about him, he is an awesome person as well. Have you ever watched him in Jesse Stone? Blue Bloods? Yes, I am ok, just a bit preoccupied right now. Thanks for asking.

Cheryl, are you still getting hot weather there? We are hot and dry here.

Danielle, I hope you can visit your sister when the baby comes. My daughter and her husband cannot have children either so I understand your pain.

Denise, how is mom and baby doing today? Home yet?

Katy, are you safe from the fires?

Jeannie, how are you doing?

Terry, hope you are having a blast!

Later ladies!

Good evening!! Getting ready to head back to work. I went to the park and ran 8 miles before coming home and sleeping today.

Anna - The last two days our temps have been in the low 60s but supposed to warm back up.

Danielle - Glad you found out that your sister is having a boy.

Ashley - What are your thoughts on the Boy Scouts now accepting girls?

Andrea - Sorry the cough is going to hang around.

Cathe - I miss our chats too when I have to work.

Hi ladies. Contrary to popular belief I didn't fall off the face of the earth... a lot has happened since I was last here. On August 1st I had a black out which caused me to crash my car into a phone pole. Fortunately it was just me. Unfortunately because I passed out my license was suspended. My car was totaled. I've been depressed and physically dealing with all this. Sorry I haven't been around, life just got chaotic. Hoping to reconnect here.

Good morning!!

Another dreary day! We aren't getting much need rain from this system. Geeze if it's going to be gloomy than just rain!! It's only 55 outside. I don't think it's going to be nice fore the huge craft fair this weekend.

I don't know how I feel about girls being in Boy Scouts. I think it's ok to have all boy or all girl groups. It's been shown girls do better in math classes when boys aren't around.
thinking it over--I guess I'm against it.

Danielle- when is your sister due?

Cheryl- 8 miles? I'd be running past the mall if I ran that far! You are awesome!

KIm- sure glad you weren't hurt!

Hello to all. I'll bbl most likely.

The sun came out for about a half an hour. I took advantage of it and photographed my LOs.
all the 4th of July are pretty much the same. Don't feel like you have to comment on all.

Well I was hurt, whacked my head good when I 'fell' out of my car trying to escape the fire on the side of my car. I'm now dealing with post concussive syndrome, pinched nerves and a very tweaked C6-7 due to my car spinning after it hit the pole. I was so thankful I didn't hit anyone else. I'm thankful to be alive. Back to crafting. Actually going to scrapbook Expo next week

Hi! Work today was crazy...I was down on the third floor, doing the last day of my 10-6 week when we got a call from the 8th floor lab that they were very, very short (two callouts and one tech got sick and was escorted to employee health) so they needed someone to help cover lunches. Since my lunch wasn't until 3PM (the third floor lab has a set schedule) and it was slow, I had to go up to the 8th floor to help with the covering. I think I did a turn at almost every station today before I had to go back downstairs to cover the 9-5 person for his lunch!

Cathe- We only make GORP at Investiture Ceremony. We usually make so much that the parents have now learned to come with ziplock bags to take the GORP home LOL!

Anna- My mom watches Blue Bloods all the time (she knows every time repeats are on) and LOVES the Jesse Stone movies. I think she has a fair few of them on DVD or BluRay.

Cheryl- I'm very much against girls being in Boy Scouts. This is the Boy Scouts pandering to the hipster/gender-is-a-socia l-construct crowd to bolster their numbers. For my troops, Girl Scouts is a safe space for these girls (some from very troubled lives) to come and feel safe and talk about issues that are important to them. I feel that some of these issues (body image/eating disorders, female bullying, domestic abuse, female health issues) will be set aside if they're put with boys.

Kim- Yikes on the accident! Glad to hear you're on the mend!

Good morning and Happy Saturday ladies!

The fog is so thick here you can slice it with a knife! They say a cold front is headed our way; not gonna lie, I am ready for a cool down. I don’t want freezing temps by any means but a cool down would be nice.

Andrea, are you closed for the season yet?

Ashley, I agree with you. I am not in favor of the mixed scouts either. We love the Jesse Stone shows.

Cathe, loved all of your layouts!

Cheryl, when it is your race? Soon isn’t it?

Danielle, my niece is expecting a little boy too. She’s due in March.

Denise, glad mom and baby are home and doing well!

Kim, HI! Hope you are recovering nicely from the accident.

Terry, saw your pic on FB. Looks like a great bunch of ladies to hang with and work with!

Hello

My friend and I went out to the huge craft fair. We got out of there before it started raining.........and I mean pouring! I feel so badly for the vendors. The ones inside the pole barns and tents will be ok, but the food vendors will suffer. I bought one thing. It's a Christmas tree made out of birch wood and bark. It's different. I'll take a photo of it someday soon to show you.

Tonight I have the Board and Brush sign making thing. Sure wish the weather were nicer. I won't have to do the driving as I'm going with my sister. The place we are going to is in Roscoe Illinois, about 30 min. north. There's a lot of road construction though so it might take longer.

Danielle- I loved the shape of the chairs you gave away. I bet they could be recovered and have an entirely different look. Of course you have to find someone good at that. There was a guy who was known in the entire area to be really good.He recovered a friend's couch and it was unbelievable. He retired.

Anna- cute cards.

Kim- what a horrible accident! Hope you are well enough to go to the Scrap Expo next week. Are you in physical therapy?

I'm going to go scrap. Have a nice day

We used oxide inks. Wow!! now I know why everyone wants them. It was so much fun being able to stamp over a color.
Our local library is so well run and offers the best classes and things.
This wasn't really a class. We didn't sit down. Everything was cut and we just pieced the cards together other than the stamping and gluing.
they are repeating the even in Dec. making xmas cards. They are going to ask for a donation of one of the cards for the dinner for Senior. I told them I can make extra cards as the get about 50 people.

Hi! Went to go see the new "Blade Runner" movie last night...I enjoyed it but I happen to like cyberpunk so there's that. It's a fairly long movie (nearly three hours) with lots of sweeping, stunning visuals and a fairly good story but it seemed like a lot of people in the theater were getting antsy for the major action sequences to happen. There were a few of them but not as many as you'd think. I'm off from work this week! Nothing major planned but we might take my mom pumpkin picking for her birthday.

Cathe- The craft fair sounds fun! Too bad it rained, though!

Hi ladies!
For those of you who asked, the fires are not near me. they are about 3 hour drive away , However, I do know some people affected by the fires. They had to be evacuated, but luckily came home to see their houses in tack. It is so sad to see the devastation from the fire. All the homes and businesses and wineries... just gone!!
We did get a lot of the drift smoke from the fires last week.. so bad you could smell it here.
I just got home from my sister's where I spent the last 4 days. We had a blast. Shopped, ate, and made Christmas cards... and ate some more! My 2 kitties forgave me for deserting them.. after I gave them treats!
I hope all is well with you all and your families. I'll check in again soon. I still have to go unpack..
And Jeannie will try to come on as soon as her DH fixes their computer..

Hi! As far as vacation days go, today was a bit of a bust. I mean, other than putting Halloween decorations up, today was a bust. I wound up going to Target with my parents and my sister. Normally I like going to Target BUT going with my sister is a whole other beast. She needed shoes for a wedding she's going to on Saturday so the trip was all about that and about how her husband is refusing to go to the wedding with her but insisting she has to go to his sister's baby shower (we're all invited to that shower but, luckily, I have to work LOL). Tomorrow I have to go to the doctor's and then do MORE shopping for my sister.

Cathe- We're trying to convince my dad to go out to a pumpkin patch on Long Island so it's proper pumpkin picking. The place also has apple picking but we're not sure he's going to go for it since his truck is in the shop and we'd have to take my mom's car.

Cheryl- Wow! You must have really needed rest for your body to sleep that much!

Katy- Good to hear you were safe from those awful fires!

Ashley- Hope today you get to do what YOU want. Just don't go shopping with your sister!

It's chilly here this a.m. 47*

I don't have plans other than walking.

I finished Fiona Davis's second novel The Hotel. I liked The Dollhouse a bit better but this one was good too. Hope she writes another novel soon.

Have a nice day.

Also, I went to a Women's Conference over the weekend. It was a two day affair called "Time Out For Women". Man, my cup was filled. The speakers were fantastic. I feel so enlightened. I estimate that there were about 3500 women there.

Afternoon ladies!

It was 38 here this a m and yes, the heat was on. We've gone straight from the a c to heat! We had a huge frost too. They say it will be just as cold tonight.

Ashley, hope you are enjoying vacation so far. Mine started today.

Cathe, I don't have ink of those new inks yet but I do want some.

Cheryl, I'm with Cathe, you needed some sleep and rest.

Denise, how's the baby doing? And Momma? And Grandma?

Katy, glad you are safe from the fires.

Hello to everyone else. Have a great evening!

Hi! Went to the doctor's today for my medicine check-up then when out with my mom. We had to get shoes for this stupid wedding I'm "socially obligated" to go to next month...I'm not into going but, because it's one of the girls from the dance studio and she came to my sister's wedding, I have to go. My mom said I had to get heels which made me even less inclined to want to go...I hate heels!

Cathe- I just finished Dan Brown's latest Robert Langdon adventure, "Origin"...I stayed up until almost 3AM last night to finish it because it was so awesome.

Anna- I think it was 45 here this morning...then it got into the 70s in the afternoon...now it's cold again! I don't know if I should be sleeping in a hoodie or putting the fan on LOL! (I might just do both since I'm cold all the time anyway.)

Gorgeous cards as always Anna.

Earlier this year I was selected to be on the design panel for Heidi Swapp's Storyline product. It was an amazing time! Here is one of the layouts I did. I love the product because it's so quick and easy to put together a layout. I even took one of my albums with me camping on my 20th anniversary trip... didn't have to take much just my 'deck of days' cards and some adhesive.

Your new cards are darling.

Ashley- Sorry you have to attend a wedding you don't want to go to.

Kim congrats on being asked to the Heidi Swapp design panel.

Fall is here--cold nights and then warming up nicely during the day. I wish it would stay like this all winter.

Kay- cute cards. Where did you get your little stand to set your cards on?

Have a nice day ladies.

Near the Sea By Scrappin 2

The gal in the middle is my great niece. She's with her beautiful children on a short vacation. I learned how to get her fb photos into Picasa to edit. I'm so bad at figuring out that kinds of thing.
For Christmas I make layouts for her-one of each child. I think this year I have 20 for them. That means I need to get 20 made for her sister and sister-in-law..............can't show favorites. LOL

Below is her little guy.

Baby's eye was a clogged tear duct, thankfully nothing serious. Everyone else seems okay.

Hi! Today was my mom's birthday. I was going to take her out for tea and sandwiches but it never panned out. My grandmother decided she didn't want to get along with my dad so my mom stayed home to do laundry and mediate and I cleaned my desk. Actually, I'm a lot happier now that my desk is organized so I guess that's a positive. I use my desk as my writing space and, with National Novel Writing Month coming up, I need my writing space in useable condition.

Anna- Hope your mom is doing alright!

Cathe- This wedding is a whole "friend-of-a-friend-of-a- friend" type thing. I actually got left off the invitation so I was hoping I wasn't even invited LOL!

Good morning ladies.

Thank you for your prayers for my mother. Surgery went well. Very wobbly but was feeling stronger last night. Still dealing with some pain but the bleeding finally stopped. Now for the uppers to heal and then remove the lowers. And then partials for both, hopefully.

I've got a pretty long "to do" list today so I best get started.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Good news Anna!

Right, what are you writing, Ashley?

Welcome back Kimberly. Nice to hear from ya!

I have a stack of pages done of Courtney I need to photograph and upload.

Speaking of photography. I am supposed to do a newborn session of Sadie today. I want to create a new back drop first. I usually use my rolling clothes rack and clamp fabric or blankets to it. I'd like a pink one and or a wood wall/floor look. I might be able to figure it out.

Have to take Sadie in to her mom at 10 for a feed. She needed some rest so I brought Sadie out to the living room with me. She is such a delicate tiny baby. She only cries when she is getting a diaper change otherwise she squeak. It's so cute.

Can't wait to see your new born pictures of Sadie. You have that "eye". I really enjoy your photos.

Today I met up with my one card making friend. I had to get her SU order to her. She had been on vacation. We went to the usual M's, HL and JA. Nothing very exciting in those stores.

I cam home and walked with my neighbor. It is HOT!!

Hoping the Cubs win tonight!!!

Hi! Today was another not so eventful day. I finished another book and started my fourth one this week LOL and then I sat and played video games until I had to leave for dance class. I'm hoping to maybe do something tomorrow but there always seems to be drama here. For example, my sister was supposed to be "very sick" but she went to work...I just found a video of her out with her husband and his family and she didn't look sick at all.

Cathe- I have two half written novels. I'd like to be published one day but I'm afraid what I write isn't very good. I've only ever shared it with one of my friends.

Denise- So cute that Sadie squeaks!

Queen By Scrappin 2

Danielle- glad to hear the dog's leg is healing.

Ashley- I imagine a lot of authors feel like you do about their writings. Don't let that stop you.

Cheryl- good luck on your race this weekend.

Tomorrow we are going down to our Alma mater's Homecoming. My whole family (except for one) attended Illinois State University. My brother Rick and his wife Lynette live near Normal, Il. So we are all going to the parade and game. We'll spend the night with them. So I won't be in tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend. I may be back later today but if not..............stay well, stay safe,

Danielle, glad your dog is doing better. We are supposed to get your cold weather on Monday. I dread it.

Ashley, don't give up on your writing. Pursue your dream of being a writer!

From the photos Terry has shared on FB, it looks like things are going well and they are having a good trip.

Had the morning to myself so I started working on my Christmas cards.

Have a great weekend ladies!

Ashley, It took me until my 50s to get published. Mine are not novels but are technical writings. Now my work is on the back of a nonfiction book covering miners collecting specimens around the USA (I was asked to write the synopsis), in 2 magazines, in 4 What's New newsletters, in numerous club newsletters, and has won several awards. Keep after it, believe in yourself, and don't give up! You can do it!!!

Hi! Finally got to out for tea and sandwiches with my mom today LOL! Then I had the craziest Girl Scout meeting. I read the Daisies a (not-so) scary story, we did the "Monster Mash" and I taught them how to make "worms and dirt" with chocolate pudding, smashed up Oreo cookies, and gummi worms. The kids liked making the dirt but not many of them actually mustered up the courage to try it. The gummi worms, however, those went over big time LOL!

Cathe- Have fun! The college both my sister and I attended (Marymount Manhattan College) doesn't do things like that because it's a very small college. We just recently got an "official college mascot."

Anna- I have to start thinking about what pictures I want to use for my Christmas cards this year.

Denise- I use to write nonfiction articles for my college's science society newsletter. My column was "the science of science fiction" which is one of the random things I enjoy looking up LOL!

Cheryl- Good luck with your race!

Good morning! Back to usual busy schedule. Church, lunch out with family and babysitting. The weather was great for the race. Around mile 5 a 12 year old was having an asthma attack. I stopped to help her and since she had no rescue inhaler ended up calling an ambulance. Her mom was running the 5k and we could not get a hold of her. Then first time ever after a race, I had horrible legs cramps. They were so bad I couldn’t stand or anything. I was screaming it hurt so bad. I had my sister get me some bananas and, of course, I drank a ton of water.

Hi! Went apple and pumpkin picking with my mom, sister, and my sister's husband. It was about as fun as you can imagine it would be. Plus, it was so late in apple season that the trees had been picked clean...so we had to pick apples from barrels and bins instead of trees. I could have done that in a grocery store instead of being stuck in a car with my sister and her husband for four hours (two hours in each direction).

Cheryl- WOW! I'm glad you were able to help that poor girl running the race with you. I'm sorry to hear about your leg cramps!

Ouch on the leg cramps!! Weird how it has never happened before but did on Saturday.

We had a great time at our Alma Mater--Illinois State University. It is as pretty as ever. The football game was a lot of fun. ISU won! they were not the favored team. The weather was great. The trees weren't quite as pretty as I would have liked, but at least there was some color to them.
It was fun being with my sister in law and brother.

Today is rainy. slept til 8:15!!

Have a nice day. bbl

Hi! Today was my last day of vacation but it wasn't really a vacation day...it was my day off because I have to work this coming weekend. The lead tech who does the schedule was nice enough to tack my day off on the end of my vacation so I got an extra day. I mean, it's not like I did anything today anyway other than read. My mom and I were supposed to go to the movies but my dad had an emergency and wound up at the pulmonologist. Turns out he has a bad cold and it was causing some breathing problems for him.

Cathe- Sounds like you had a nice weekend!

Anna- I go back to work tomorrow. I'm irrationally nervous about it...especially since, the week before I went on vacation, I was on the third floor lab so I haven't been in the main lab for two weeks (which feels like forever in lab time).

Cheryl- Glad to hear the grandkids were good today!

Ashley- that was nice of the lead tech.
Sure glad there was nothing more serious going on with your Dad.

Danielle- sure hope your pooch is ok.

Cheryl- isn't it funny how some babies like baths and others don't?

It's raining here.
I cleaned yesterday so I will reward myself today and scrap or make cards.
Have a nice day.

Hi Ladies! Got back home yesterday after a very long day & plane ride! Then within an hour we were taking our dog Halley who's 9 yo to the vet. Sad news--she's lost 7 lbs in 2 wks, has several nodes in her lungs and a huge mass near her heart. Plus severe osteoporosis has set in where her leg/knee area is. My heart is breaking! If the blood tests show that we can have more precious time with her it also will mean pain meds & steroids to keep her comfy. We never have them around long enough....
Texas: beautiful landscape, wonderful friendly people who welcomed all of us with great southern tradition, horrid humidity even when the temps dropped and snakes snakes snakes!!! The guys out at the test area killed 18 snakes in 2 wks one of which I ran over & killed. Copperheads, Cottonmouths, and timber rattlers!!!!! Saw areas where the flooding was in Houston ---poor people have major work to do. Sorry we didn't connect Denise. I am also on a hectic schedule when working the store plus the loooonnnng drive it would have been for you too.
I'll catch up on all the chatter later but right now I have a ton of bills to pay, groceries to get, wash to do, etc!
Happy to be home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! Went back to work today...and it was as wild as I left it LOL! Something happened with the schedule and they had no one placed on the coag bench and two people in another building (there should have only been one) and someone listed as working but he was actually off. I wound up helping at two benches while working with this one tech who is, by far, the WORST tech in the entire lab. No one likes working with her because she's just terrible!

Anna- Work's a "necessary evil"...if I don't work, I can't buy books or go to Disney...so I make like one of the Seven Dwarves and off to work I go.

I went to the mall and walked with my neighbor. It was so cold this morning.

Now I'm trying to figure out if I made a $14.63 credit card charge. The initials of the company are BBC. I think it's fraudulent,. Called the bank and they said it's a craft store............hmm, it could be mine, but when I pay online I use paypal. Impossible to figure out.

Terry- so so sorry to hear about your dog. If only they lasted until we croaked and croaked with us. Hope she can live comfortably a while longer with you.
I would be petrified if I saw a snake. I'd be on the first jet out of there!!

Hi all. Had a great week. Finally getting a chance to jump on here and say hello to ya'll. I went to Scrapbook Expo over the weekend. It was ok. We are the second to last show and I always feel like we're getting the tag end of all the good product. Thinking about actually trying to go to the Salt Lake show next year. One of my dearest friends lives in South Jordan and we so need to do this.

Hi! Today I was on the body fluids bench...it wasn't too terrible. I mean, I got a lot of really bloody and sticky fluids but they all came before 2PM so I had plenty of time to work on them. Then I came home and helped my dad build a lamp. The light in my ceiling fan stopped working and we can't find the parts necessary to fix it so my dad bought me a huge lamp instead. It's not the same as having overhead lights but it kind of beats feeling like I live in a cave LOL.

Denise- Yeah, my dad's feeling better. We worry that, given the condition of his lungs, any kind of cold or flu can send him back to the hospital.

Cathe- It was cold here this morning too. I'm not happy about that.

Cheryl- Hope you have a good night at work!

Kimberly- I feel the same way about NY ComicCon. I go on the Saturday (it's a Thursday-Sunday convention) and, by the time I get there, a lot of the shirts and things in my size are already sold out and a lot of the booths have already given out all their free convention swag.

Ashley- too bad you can't get the parts for your fan. It's annoying when older things can't be fixed.
Glad your Dad is better.

Andrea- I was happy to see your avi yesterday.

Anna- too bad we can't send some of our cold air out to CA!

Have a great day. bbl
