My day:
Help DH clean out the garage
Grocery shopping
Take photos of color swap items I've received and add them to slide show
Sort the photos I picked up at CVS last night
Work on color swap pages

Yesterday while DH and I were on our drive along the beaches of the panhandle, we came across a Michaels in the same area where we ate lunch. I, of course, had to pop in and check in out. That was the nicest Michaels I have ever been in. The guy at check-out told me that it's a prototype store and if it works well the other stores may switch to this design. Let me tell you, the scrapbook section was awesome. It took up the entire middle of the store and instead of having a bunch of long straight aisles, it had a bunch of small L-shaped sections all around a center section that was a classroom type area. And, it was set-up more like an LSS where things are grouped by theme. There was a Disney/cartoon section, wedding section, baby section, school section, etc. I loved it! And, they had more stuff than my Michaels. The only thing I bought were some clearance items that I hadn't ever seen at my store. I sure hope my Michaels designs their store like this!

Happy Birthday, Princess Morgan!!

Yay! It's Friday! We were planning to go to the cabin this weekend (one last get-away before back-to-work), then we weren't sure if it would be done. Mom called a little while ago and it is, but now DH isn't sure if he wants to go. So what we end up doing remains to be seen!!

Here's my list for today:

1. DS up
2. DS breakfast!
3. Walk
4. Order pics
5. Fold clothes
6. Do DS's birthday invites so they can be mailed next week
7. Email to get stuff from work
8. Do stuff from work
9. DS lunch
10. Proj 365 pic
11. Proj 365 journaling
12. Grocery store (if not going to the cabin)
13. Walk again tonight with DH, DS, & the doggie. . .if the grocery store doesn't run too late!
14. Maybe try to do some scrapping?? That would be a rare treat!! ;)

Everyone have a FABULOUS Friday!!

Happy Birthday Princess Morgan!!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!!

OK - so DD9 has a 4H pig - its hot and she has not been eating well since we got her. So today I mixed up some peanut butter and molasses and told DD to add it to her food. Maybe it would entice her to eat better. She reported the pig just turned her nose up at it and left. Apparently she just poured the mixture into the pig feeder and left it - without mixing it into her feed pellets.:rotfl::confused3

Today -

DH to Dr ofc
Find something for these kids to do - they are starting to get to me!! :crazy:
Finish tax report
Run a few errands
I don't know - can you tell I am just filling time.....

Wish I were at the beach!! Everyone have a great weekend!

7 cups of fresh picked blackberries equals this many 1/2 pints of semi-seedless jam after being put through a food mill.


With just enough left over for two slices of toast. :teeth:

This turned out to be the best so far. :thumbsup2

Oooooh, I bet that is so yummy!!!!! I'll take a slice of toast with some blackberry jam please!!!!:)

I talked to DS and he's having a great time at Seabase (high adventure scout camp in the Keys). I had sent him down there with a bunch of waterproof disposable cameras and told him he better come back with lots of pictures and they better not all be from just one day, but spread out. He said he's used 1 1/2 of the cameras so far. Well, he told me they spent a day down in Key West and he did some shopping. I asked him if he bought me a present :rolleyes:. Well, he said "no, the pictures are your present!" :rotfl: He knows what I like!!!!:thumbsup2

I meet a HS friend for lunch... our day didn't end til 6:30pm... She is still as much fun as in HS! DH said that he'd have to keep us on a tight leash after hearing about our escapades (sp) in our youth! I have never laughed so hard.. .than she calls her HS BF who I graduated with! OMG! I laughed even harder when we reminded him of his stupid ex-gf! LOL
