Mr. Gorgeous

it was a bright sunny but chilly day yesterday.  i had to take my car to the car doctor.  my ignition switch was sticking.  they sprayed it with a lubricant, told me it is NOT permanent, did not charge me for the visit and sent me on my way....  after telling me that if it happens again they would have to order the part at a cost of $335.  really?  and to think i have a service contract.  however, it is NOT covered under that contract.  well, i'm wiser this time and i definitely won't be getting a service contract with my next car unless they GUARANTEE me in writing that EVERYTHING is covered.  but for now, the key works.

i then headed to enjoy breakfast with a friend and then to hobby lobby.  i spent $6 on a tim holtz embossing pack.  it was reduced from $12.  i saw that some of the framelits were 1/2 price too and tho i didn't buy them, one of the stock people said they were marked down because they were getting a whole new supply in within a few weeks.  as much as i wanted to treat myself, i may not have FRAMELITS but i DO have other dies with the shapes of what i was looking at.  so i left the store and came home.  gosh i'm good.

i have no mojo lately.  of course, the fact that the weather has been nice and i've been outside with the dog has NOTHING to do with the fact that mojo is missing.... yeah right!  so, i'm showing off my ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS (even for a boy) grandson - which is way better than "digging into my stash" ya think....

i did say he was GORGEOUS didn't i???? 

he looks happy and comfy!

not much on my agenda today.  i'm picking jade up from school and she's spending the night.  it's been awhile since she's spent the night.  i have a nice girl's night planned..... after her homework, of course!

happy hump day!


whew!  and to think i always thought it was because i 
was LAZY!!!!  LOL

i have a few GOOD FRIENDS!

hugs and sparkles...

I Need My Beauty Sleep

i  hope you all had a truly blessed easter.  mine turned out to be way better than what was originally on my plate.  my day was going to be church service and home.  it turned out to be church service and dinner with jade, her mom and her gramma and grampa.  it was simply wonderful!  the weather was just gorgeous too.  today temps are supposed to be in the 70s but rain.  still, the house is opened up and i'll take it... rain and all.

my arm hasn't hurt me for 2 full days..... until i went to bed last night.  holy moly!  the pain was awful.  it hurt just to move it slightly.  i've been doing my exercises and, again, my days are good.  it's just bedtime.  not fun.  i need my beauty sleep!!!!

i've also got me a cold.  at least i think it's a cold and not allergies.  allergies my eyes itch and run.  this is burning eyes, runny nose and a painful sore throat!  will it ever end?

my agenda today is NIL.  nothing, zip.  zilch.  ok.  maybe (key word here) a little playing.  it's been a few days and i need to just get creative.  anyway, here's one from my ever wonderful stash LOL....

saw this on PINTEREST (where else) so i dug out an old SU set (?????) and played.  pretty cool huh.

happy monday!


you've been warned!

Happy Easter

our easter weekend has begun with absolutely gorgeous weather.  the dogs played outside.  they are hilarious to watch.  sydney had a ball and neenah wanted it.  they had a standoff...

neither was willing to let go for almost a full 5 minutes.  they pranced around the yard in this position until neenah finally gave up.  sydney then took the ball, retired under the deck and proceeded to completely destroy it.  that dog destroys everything which is why i don't let her play with any of neenah's toys.  in less than a minute it is pulverized!  guess that's what they do!

i had to pick jade up from school on thursday and then amber came by to get her to bring her to their place for the weekend,  and look who else i got to see....

my little liam.  he loves his sleep... especially during the day, tho he was up for awhile and i got to ooohhh, aaaahhh and cooo to him.  he's such a beauty!  7 wks old and 12 lbs!  look out sports fans!!!  LOL.

last night was GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE and it was absolutely divine.  our celloist played during the story of the cross and it was sooooooo very moving.

today temps are supposed to hit 70 with sunshine all day.  i'm putting puppy in the yard.  she loves to lay in the sun and she's gonna do that today... with or without sydney!  (preferrably without in my opinion).  i'll get out to play some ball with her, but she's gonna enjoy the fresh air and sun.

no coloring of eggs for me and i've already eaten 2 bags of jelly beans.  no plans for easter sunday other than church.... and that's just the way i like it!

A Great CASE from a Fabulously Talented Lady

one day i'm good, one day i ache.  will it ever end?  i can deal with the pain in my arms but the constant ache across my collar bone is very annoying!!!!  guess i'll have to pray harder.

it was very cold and windy yesterday and i started having trouble with my car.  i NEVER have car trouble.  seems when i put my key in the ignition it doesn't want to unlock.  i have an appointment on tuesday to have it checked out.  they did reassure me that i can still drive the car and "fighting" with the lock won't make it any worse.  of course, when your arms ache, it's NOT a thing you want to "fight" with.  sheesh.

i did get some playing in yesterday.....

i cased this one from my friend DAR's blog.  she did something similar a while back and i absolutely loved it.  great guy card.  everything she does is absolutely gorgeous.  do stop by and take a look... DAR'S CRAFTY CREATIONS.  if you don't follow her already, you should.  she's extremely talented and an absolutely wonderful lady!

on another note, and with a very sad heart.... i dropped out of AMUSE.  that doesn't mean that i won't help promote them, i just couldn't keep up with it.  trying to sell my house and cutting down on bills does not allow me MORE spending fun.  have to curtail what i can.  so, i thank all of you for your wonderful support.  if you're interested in purchasing AMUSE STUDIO products i can definitely direct you to one fabulous lady!

it's sunny and milder today.  i'm sure puppy wants to play outside.  i pick jade up from school this afternoon which is always fun.  that's my day.  nothing exciting, but glad to be alive and NOT very achy!

happy thursday!
