Public Service Announcement

Two weeks until spring break, and then it's five days off of school. Do you see me doing the happy dance?

I had paint class tonight. We are working on bees right now. The bee sits on top of a huge sunflower. I think painting a bee is probably one of the most difficult things I have yet to paint. It is so hard to make it look real!

I cannot wait for the weekend. Lighty and I are undecided about going to the cabin. We may both go, he may go, or we just might park our butts here at home and get some things done around the house...err, I might scrap and he might get things done around the house. Isn't that how it works?

Until next time...drink your orange juice, brush your teeth and make your bed.

I should be...

I should be getting my shower, packing my lunch and organizing myself for school. I just can't seem to get motivated this Monday morning. I guess it doesn't help that it is chilly outside...I WANT SPRING WEATHER!

I made this LO this past Saturday. It was an easy one...used my Cricut (Home Accents) to put cuts as overlays on some of the squares. The photo is of my older sister. I snapped this photo at the Philadelphia Flower Show. We sure had a good time that day.

Happy Tuesday..make today a good one!

birthday weekend...

It was a good weekend...on Friday night, I went out to eat dinner with Lighty, Chris, and UB. We had a good time eating wings and Greek salads. Saturday, I spent the day at a fifteen hour crop at my LSS with my good friend, Wendy. It was fun getting to spend some time with her. We always manage to have a good time when we are together. And Sunday, well everyone knows it is my least favorite day of the week. I finished all the laundry, went for groceries, made two loaves of chocolate chip banana bread, horseradish deviled eggs and also kraut and knockwurst for supper. I also was able to sneak in some time to check out my favorite scrappy sites and do some blog surfing while Lighty worked around the yard getting leaves out of all of our beds and gardens. He even managed to get the pond up and running. I am hoping SPRING is here!

So tonight I am hoping to scrapbook. I have some cards to make and would like to work on a LO for my April design team reveal at Scrap Addict, but I am already yawning. I do need to get a good night's rest as I still have two more days of PSSA tests to administer. PSSA testing is not a fun time.

I did this LO at the crop I attended this past Saturday. Those of you that know me also know the constant battle between Jules and I for the past year. I have done no LO's about him or pertaining to him. I just couldn't make myself do it. Anyway, while he was home for spring break, things between us seemed better. He no longer seemed p***ed off at the world, no longer disrespectful towards me and no longer having mean and angry words to say to me. I really think it is because of his new "girlfriend." She is a kind, so humble, so mature. I just hope his new attitude continues. Perhaps we will make it through the summer.

So let's all wish for warmer weather and lots of sunshine this week.

So, here it is another Sunday, and another week with no scrappy mojo. I am sitting here with no shower, hair pulled back and just waiting for Lighty to fix the leak he caused while cleaning the coils to our water heater. Now, he tells me it will be a few hours until we have hot water again. He needs to drain the water, soulder the pipes,and blah, blah, blah...WTH??? Doesn't he know I have things to do today? Oh well, all is good.

So, my first reveal as design team for is today. Check it out. I am posting it here too. Play along and let them know Michele sent you. It's a fun site.

Today I am supposed to go and do a photo shoot for my niece, her husband and baby Aiden. We were going to do an outdoor shoot, but it is overcast, so we shall see if the weather changes by noontime. If not, I would like to work on my Philadelphia Flower Show album and plans for our Alaska trip.

I was up early today. I love the early morning hours when all is peaceful and quiet in the TV, no loud music, no conversation...just the birds chirping outside. I folded the wash, made lasagne rollups for supper tonight and did a little bit of enjoyment and relaxation! So here's to a happy Sunday, even if it's without a shower.

spring training...

I am not an avid baseball fan, BUT, I am rooting for Team Edward.

Oh myself a new photo printer. It's a gem, and I am in love. Perhaps now I can start scrapping again as I was lost without my photo printer when it bit the dust.
Happy Tuesday!

You know...

It's Sunday! I cannot believe another work week is just upon me. Why does time fly by so fast? When I was younger, my parents used to say that all the time, and I never understood what they meant by it. Now that I am older (and wiser???), I know exactly what they meant.

Saturday was a good day for me. I went to my LSS and got to crop for about two hours. I actually started a LO and completed it today. Then, I met up with a really good friend, Wendy for lunch. It was so good to see her. We chatted for a few hours and got to catch up with one another. I sure hope we don't let time slip by us again. I miss that girl.

Jules is home from college for his spring break. My stomach has been in knots, but so far, so good. It helps that I stay away from him. Actually, he has pretty much stayed in his room, laying across his bed watching TV. If it were me, I would be connecting with friends, seeing extended family. Whatever! I plan to be scarce on the homefront this week, thus hopefully, there will be no confrontations between the two of us. I do know this, the computer will be on lockdown mode all week.

Today I got up early, finished the laundry, went for groceries, and just relaxed. Supper is in the oven...cajun pasta chicken. It sure smells yummy.

So, not much else is new. I am ready for Tuesday. I am taking my sister to the Philadelphia Flower Show for an early birthday gift. It should be a fun day. I hope to take lots of photos and will give a full report about it. So my friends, until next time...
