Today, I checked almost everything off my to-do list! YAY! Only a couple of things rolling over till tomorrow–thats GOOD.
Phoenix was good…love that dry heat. Its just so very BROWN there. Hard for a southern, country girl to get used to, you know? Nice to visit, but I’ll take my rolling green hills and humidity. I missed the kids terribly. The best part of my trip was seeing Candice! Man we’ve had some good times. Meeting her and other special friends (you know who YOU are) was definitely a highlight of my years working with Junkitz. I was so proud of myself for jumping into my little red rental and taking off into the sunset to meet Candice at the mall for dinner in a far away land 🙂 We ate at PF Changs…a favorite of both of ours. We laughed and laughed…oh, it was so nice. Thanks Curtis for excellent directions! 😉 Candice has the goofy pictures on her blog 🙂
I still haven’t got to share my sewing projects here…I gave two of them away –a purse and a wristlet, to friend Angie for helping me with the kids last week (I just don’t know what I would do with out YOU :). I knew that bag had a special purpose! Maybe I can steal it back to take a picture to share. Here’s another one that is on the Fiskars site…I love this project. SEW EASY!! Lots of other ideas on there as well. Oh I’m in heaven looking at them all…something new each day! Only I’m sad cause I had to pack my sewing stuff away for now… 🙁 Stitch & Bi*** night will have to resume sometime in October.
Tomorrow is a big day for several ladies in the world of scrapbooking…its the day they announce Scrapbooker of the Year or SOY as many refer to it. My very talented friend Paula Barber is up for this award/recognition/prize! WOW! This is big time! Just wanted to wish Paula the best of luck. You GO GIRL!
This evening I made Rice Krispy treats…YUM YUM YUM! Such a simple treat. The best part is eating the stuff off the spoon when the marshmallows are still warm and gooey. Lets just say I ate an undisclosed amount while suffering from some emotional drama that I was relaying to Scott (while eating the said undisclosed amount :). He finally cut me off…lol! In my defense…I didn’t have dinner…or I guess I should say–I had Rice Krispy treats for dinner. Abby thinks I’m the best Mom ever now and she’s so thrilled to eat the treats tomorrow for her snack– it doesn’t take much to make my girl happy!!
Note to self: No more Rice Krispy treats when dealing with life’s little dramas.
Till next time 🙂 jw
