What's On My Desk Right Now?
This great idea came from Blogger Seeds
~ keyboard, monitor, mouse pad, and mouse
~ pencil cup
~ a letter organizer with a mouse pad, note pads, and some pics of my grandchildren
~ a book, "Apples and Chalkdust" and a dictionary
~ Print Shop Art CD's
~ scissors
~ pens
~ a brush to clean my key board with.
~ 2 pairs of earrings
~ blank CD's
~ a bunch of post-it reminders posted above my work space.

That's my desk, what about the shelves above? Well, not today folks! Mostly they are filled with books and CD's anyway! What about my big work desk? Well, I really don't feel like staying up that late! wow!!! It is a huge desk, made bigger by my hubby so I have a really great space for working on my scrap books!

Well, it sure was a busy weekend! Busy but good! It started off at Patti's place for a weekend crop. I did get some pics sorted, but mostly I cross-stitched and visited. I think everyone there had a good time and got a lot done! Then on Sunday we had people over for cards. We had the games start at 3 and we took a break at about 6 for a cook-out. It was a good time and everyone was gone by 8:00. That way we all had time to get ready for Monday. The bonus to having people over, is I cleaned and the gathering was outside, so my house is still clean! wow!!!

Here's hoping everyone has a good week!

I've been pretty busy yesterday and today. I helped a friend clean her house. Those who know me might think this is kind of funny, but my house is pretty clean, I'm just not very good at organization! Anyway, this friend is a a worse pack rat than I am! She has sooooo much stuff! Sooooo many collections! And lots of dust. Of course having two long haired cats doesn't help! I was there 9 hours yesterday and 5 today. And we only did the main floor. Oh well, that was my good deed for the day, even though she did pay me.

Tomorrow I'm going to be working in the yard! I'm looking forward to it, actually! The weather should be nice, and all in all, I am looking forward to a pleasant day. Friday and Saturday will find me at my sister's house. We will be crafting! Most will be working on photo albums. I'll be organizing some pics, but I also plan on doing lots of cross stitching. Should be a fun weekend. Dave was going to stay home on Saturday and do yard work, but he is going fishing instead. That will be good for him, I hope he gets some fish! They say the perch are biting!

Well, today is a dreary day, but yesterday, the rain held off long enough for us to get a really good walk in! We had a great dinner at mom and dad's place, followed by a 2 mile walk. (I'm guessing on the distance.) It was great to get together with everyone.

Update on my new page: It has some more stuff on it, so I'm going to post the link in the links section. I will be adding to it as time progresses, so check it out!

That's it for now!

Last night I spent some time making a new page to link to here. Windy's Quizzes and Other Stuff There's not much there yet, but soon I'll have some quizzes posted, and I'm also going to be working on a "100" things link. That one is empty now though, so the link will show up later. I'll be posting my new links in the link section today or tomorrow!
Have a blessed Easter!

You all know the saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!"
Well, tonight we were supposed to have band practice in Bay City. Now that is almost an hour drive for me, but I went because we are not having practice next week. Well, I get all the way there and find out that the person who was supposed make arrangements to get us in the building to practice neglected her duty! Soo.. there are 8 of us sitting in the parking lot waiting and getting angry. Big Lemon! right? Lucky me! I have a sister who happens to live in Bay City, and because of the distance from my house, I don't see her that often. Well, I stopped by, and they were actually home! We had a very nice visit! Thanks, Patti, for your hospitallity! Lemonade!
I'm glad I went, because I debated being that the weather twinkies were predicting an ice storm. It didn't come, so all is well!

Good Night!!

We're in Michigan for sure!
Two days of beautiful, almost summer like days, and today they are predicting freezing rain for the evening! Yesterday we had record breaking highs of 80+ degrees! Well, as the saying goes, if you don't like the weather, wait a few mins and it will soon change! That's Michigan for ya!

And another thing! Why does a pile of dishes in the evening look unbearably huge, but when you get them done in the morning, it really wasn't that bad! I am probably one of the few people on the planet who has to hand wash their dishes, and sometimes after dinner, it just doesn't get done! We have very hard water, and the water will play havoc with the plumbing and workings of the machine. It's really not that bad, because it is just 2 of us, but sometimes my preparations for dinner makes such a huge mess, I just don't feel like tackling the task!

Looking forward to some decent weather for the holiday!

Well, my head is just about cleared up! That's good! Yesterday we took the aluminum to the junk yard for $$$. Dave was hoping we'd get $90, but we ended up with $125. It took him about 4 years to save it all up, but it was worth it!

Not too much else going on here!

Hi All!
A note about the flowers. The snow has mostly melted and it looks like all the flowers will be ok. The ones that were coming up were close to either the house or the pole barn, and therefore protected enough from the elements.

About my mood! I haven't changed it because it hasn't changed! I'm still stuffed up! I bought some Aleve cold and sinus medicine and took one at 7pm. I'm feeling much better already, and only hoping I can sleep with my mouth closed! wow!!! The past 2 nights were terrible because I was so stuffed I couldn't breath right, and then woke up with a dry throat in addition to the stuffiness. Aleve works wonders, and I'll really be putting their 12 hour claim to the test!

Well, that's it for now! O&O!!!

Hi Blogger Fans!

We've been keeping busy on the homefront. Saturday night we played cards with some friends. We each put in 5 bucks to play, and then the top 5 scores get the $$$. I actually came in 4th place. Everyone thought I'd get 1st or 2nd, but for some reason the scores were all really high. We play 12 games with random partners, so anything can really happen during the night. I was glad to place!

I can't believe the crappy weather we had over the weekend. Our tulips, daffodils, and irises were starting to come up, and they were all completely covered in snow. Dave says they should be ok, I hope he is right. All our flower beds are cleaned out but one, and the one not cleaned isn't really flowers. It's peppermint. I'll clean it as soon as the snow melts. I can't believe it is April, and I'm talking about melting snow! Ah well, this too shall pass, as the saying goes!

Well, that's it for now!

Well, I'm back!
Too bad the weather is so crappy! I just have one more flower bed to clean, and I was going to brave the weather, but it is just too darn cold! Plus, by the time I walked out to the mail box my glasses were too hard to see out of as they were covered by freezing rain. It's days like this that I'm glad I'm not driving to Saginaw everyday. It wasn't too bad this morning, but our driveway and sidewalks have become slippery now! Anyway, I decided to bake cookies instead! I'm making molasses cookies that crunch. They remind me a bit of ginger snaps.

Howdy All!
I haven't blogged for a while, and I was going to use for an excuse that I couldn't think of a thing to blog about. Well, guess what? That excuse won't fly anymore! Check out this new site: Blogger Seeds This site is full of ideas! The topic below is just one of the many ideas found, and new ideas are being added weekly!

A Pet Peeve
Well, I have many pet peeves, but one that I find most annoying is people who drive while talking on their cell phone! They just are not paying attention to the road. I have been cut off on US10, cars have pulled out in front of me on busy streets, and on several occasions, I have noticed that these folks were talking on the phone. When my sister and I drove to GA together there were times when I told her not to talk to me, because I needed to concentrate on the signs and traffic! And she was sitting in the car with me, but when driving on unfamiliar roads and highways, a person needs to concentrate! Fortunately she understood, and played the part of the navigator. People using car phones have caused accidents, and I for one, would support a law that bans you from using them while driving.
