I am back!

After a very long hiatus, I am back. So much has happened in my little world. But no worries, I am good, healthy, happy, and flying solo.

got to love it...

It's hard to believe that it is actually mid 60's and so beautiful outside. Lighty worked outside today while I prepared supper for us and played on the computer and did the laundry.

Yesterday was so nice and relaxing. I went to my LSS and cropped for the day and into the evening. I actually was able to complete four LO's. It was a different atmosphere as the usual croppers were missing. That was fine by me as I made some new friends and actually got a lot accomplished. I didn't make it to the end because I was so tired. I was home by nine, unpacked and in bed within the half hour.

So, it's Sunday and I have the blues. I sure hope the work week goes by quickly. I would like to clean the house next weekend and start decorating for the holiday season.

Here's to a quick work week and Sheetz having their vanilla spiced chai back for sale!

new site

As I was surfing the web one night, I found this wonderful site full of inspiration. It's called Sketchabilities and it's just full of talent. When my mojo just isn't doing anything for me, I turn to sketches. They are a great starting place for a LO. Sometimes my LO may look a little like the original sketch or most times it takes on a completely different look. Well anyway, they are looking for a new DT. I think I am going to send in my application. I just love their sketches. I would love to be a part of their team.

The LO is a sketch taken from Do go and check the site out. It looks like fun.

I need a vacation...

So, I decided I need a vacation. School is stressful. Lighty is working so much and is in the woods when he can find the time. The prince will soon be home for a break (and I so dread it). Chris is so sweet but my nerves have had enough of his slowness for right now. Lighty really dislikes any type of vacation unless it is nature oriented. I just want to have FUN. So, what better place to go than DISNEY. I am taking my mom and sister to Disney World in February for a week. We are going to see shows and parades, ride some rides and have a nice dinner every night. I am like a kid in a candy store. I can hardly wait. It should be a good time. Now, I am not a Disney freak, but what other place can a person go and just have FUN? So, that is what I did all weekend long...worked on our plans. We are staying at the Carribean Beach Resort, I got us a six day hopper pass, the dining plan and made all our dinner reservations and even booked our flight. We are good to go! So, my friends, I had good intentions to scrap this weekend, but instead, I had a magical weekend making reservations to go and see the mouse.

Here's to my Sunday night blues.

the weekly Sunday night post

Sunday night AGAIN and I have the blues AGAIN. We received a message on our voicemail Friday that our electricity will be shut off tomorrow so they can finally fix the line in our development. It has been an ongoing thing. We never know when we will be without power. This means no shower, no toilet and bedhead hair for the day. I plan to wake up extra early tomorrow in hopes that I can beat the shut off time.

It was a relaxing weekend. I didn't do much except the usual house stuff and laundry. Today I cooked off a pumpkin and then made homemade chocolate chip pumpkin muffins. I must say the house smelled good this afternoon.

I sure hope this week goes by quickly. I am tired of school right now, but it seems that most of the teachers are feeling this way. I think the district put way too much on our plates this year. I just wish I could get out of this funk.

So, here's to having electricity in the morning and a brisk, fall day without rain!

one step forward and two steps back...that's the story. Off to get ready for work. I am ready for the weekend. Heck, I am ready for summer vacation.

four days...

I just got back from four days at a SB retreat house. It was so nice to leave my worries and responsibilities at home and just scrap, laugh and have fun. I was finally able to finish the land part of our Alaska trip this past summer as well as a mini album for my niece and a random LO called snake busters. I was quite happy with this LO as it was the first time I actually sewed on a LO...thanks to LOTS of help from a friend.

Now it's back to day two of reality...WORK. I can't wait until April until I get to do it all again.

Here's to's finally here.
