Let Me Know You Were here!! :)

It's a Warm One!!!

Recognize this guy??  I can take the heat, but I'm not "big" on the humidity!!!  I know, I know...I'll be "screaming" for this warm weather come January, right??

Well, I have made a BIG dent in my craft room.  I have a big bag of items for the thrift store...and a large box and a large bag for the yard sale.  I'm so proud of myself!!!  Anything that causes me "stress" is OUT THE DOOR!!!!  And it's not coming back in!! 

I worked this morning...VERY quiet.  I needed armed security to help me to my car!!!  (And you know I'm lying to ya!)  I have to go back tonight, but only for a few hours. 

Took Og The Dog for a walk this afternoon, but didn't go far...it's just too hot out there for him!!  Hopefully, it will cool down later...and we'll give it another try!!

Not a real exciting post....but then again...I haven't been doing any "crafting" at all the last few weeks.  Maybe I'll pick up my crochet hook this week....Lord knows I have enough yarn. 

Have a great Sunday!!

I have a bad habit of getting my "second wind" right around 11:00 p.m.  Really need to stop this, as I have a hard time navigating in the morning.  But, Sirius Radio is keeping me "groovin"...love Motown...try Soul Town...it's GREAT!! 

Work tonight was "just okay"...only 4 tables, but they were all generous.  Had a nice compliment from an elderly gentleman and his wife...told me they appreciate "good service".  Very nice!  But, after 43 years in this business, I hope I do something right.  Even if it's something simple...like refilling a water glass, whatever...it seems to make people happy.  Makes me smile!

But..although I'm NOT ready for the grave at 60 years of age..I'm slowing down and it really "pisses" me off.  Since I decided to "roll down the street" while walking the dog...blowing out the knees of my jeans and scrapping up the palms of my hands...flopping around like a "fish out of water" on the cement and being TOTALLY embarrassed as some one on the street decided to rescue an "old lady and her dog" by picking me up, dusting me off and checking me over...which I was TOTALLY grateful for...I've been having a little trouble.   My damn legs are killing me...mind you, only from the knees down...and my feet are on FIRE!!!  And it's worse when I walk on a cement floor!  (WHINER!!! )
So what's a girl to do??  In my mind, I still think I'm 25..I look in the mirror and see my Mom...but SHE IS  BEAUTIFUL!!   So, I put my "big girl panties " on and I'm going to see the Dr.---not my M.D, as he's an idiot and has mis-diagnosed JK 3 times...poor soul...BUT my "bone cracker"...super man...and GOOD at what he does.  Keeping my fingers crossed as he can put "Humpty Dumpty" back together again. 

Now...I think I might go down and add an extra pound or two on and have a ham and cheese sandwich..throw on an onion..let Og the Dog out..and go to bed.

Love, Peace and Rock "n" Roll!!!  Thinkin' 'bout cha!  Yo James Brown....

What About Me???

Okay, Og!!  Here ya go!!!  I've been mentioning the cats......much to his dismay, but not much about my "Little Man" lately--Oggie The Doggie.  Well, Og isn't a little boy any more...he'll be celebrating his 10th birthday in just a few days!!!  Time sure flies!!  He's in good health..alittle "chubby"...has had 2 knee replacements..but other than that, he's as "fit as a fiddle"

Well, JK left bright and early this morning for alittle Father-Son time for a few days..  They're meeting at the half-way point...somewhere in the Algonquin Park area.  They rented a cabin...JK took the boat...and I'm sure there will be lots of food in store!!  It sounds to me like this might be an annual thing...although we see Rob 3-4 times per year.  All-in-all, I'm sure they're have a BLAST!!

I worked yesterday--split shift--and I'm off today.  So much to do...although my house is good and clean.  My big plans are to tackle my craft room...or at least a good part of it.  I did mention to JK that he wouldn't recognize it when he got home.....anything I get rid of or put in its proper place will be an improvement.  It's VERY scary in there!!

But first...I'm of to a few yards sales.  NO, I do NOT need a thing, but it's always fun to scout out another man's junk, right???

Enjoy your Saturday!!!  I'm going to!!!

Sunny Love....

It's been awhile since I've mentioned my Sunny Kitty...so here's alittle bit of Sunny LOVE!!  What a handsome boy!!  Hard to believe he's been around for almost 13 years....and still going strong!

Having company for dinner, so spent the morning cooking and "baling cat hair".  Nothing special...cauliflower salad, Italian Baked Chicken and sauteed veggies.  I'm getting hungry!!

Yesterday, JK and I actually did some "de-cluttering".  Worked on the closet shelves in the computer room, and you should see the stuff we got rid of!!    I was shocked...well, not really.  But they look awesome now!!  My plan is to TRY and convince him, that he REALLY doesn't need 35 shirts.  What do ya think my chances are??? 

Have an awesome day.....better get cleaned up before Barb and Dan get here....

My Feathered Friends...

 I have a "Mother and Child" at my suet feeder.  That little one (on the left) is so demanding and noisy!!!  But, it's so enjoyable just to sit and watch them!!    I THINK this is the Downy Wood-pecker breed...the smallest wood-pecker in North America!!

Okay...go ahead and ask me how I'm doing with my latest project..."clutter clean-up".  Well...I went to the market to get a box...and now have 3 things in this box!!!  Obviously...not very well....but I AM making the effort.

My eBay sales have picked up in the last few weeks.  I've managed to get several items listed...I'm pretty happy about that.   I hope it continues...after all, don't people start to feel the "holiday spirit" sometime in July???

Crafting??  Haven't crocheted in so long, I can't remember the last time I had a hook in my hand!!!

Better get started on dinner...new recipe tonight!!

It's Gotta Go!!

Clutter...I can't stand it...and it's getting out of control.  Unfinished projects...they're getting out of control.  My yarn stash...it's getting out of control.  Ebay items...yup...outta control.

Clutter is a cause of STRESS...it's gotta go!!

I'll keep you posted....

Just a quick "hell-o"!!  I have a busy day planned...as I did very little yesterday.  I promised JK that I would have his curtains finished for his trailer.  I have one set of panels to go--wish me luck!!  Take a look at the fabric...it's all about the 50's ya know!!  (Picture is alittle dark, but you get the idea!)

I celebrated my 60th birthday yesterday...many birthday wishes and phone calls.  Where did those 60 years dash off to????  My Mom was certainly correct when she told me to use my time wisely--as the years just fly by!!!

My Magnolia kitty isn't feeling well...AGAIN!!!  I'm hoping we don't have to take her to the vet.  She has long, coarse fur...and the symptoms all point to another "hair ball" stuck some where.   I know that doesn't sound very appealing...but it sure makes both of us happy when she decides to get rid of it!!!

Well...with that picture planted firmly in your mind...I better get off this computer and go sit at that sewing machine.

Enjoy your day....

Monday, Monday.....

Another hot, sunny day.  I guess we're enjoying fairly cool temperatures compared to those in the States. 

Finished my bath puff...and gave it away before I had a chance to take a photo.  I'm sure I'll be making another...so "stay tuned". 

A friend of mine gave me a bag of rhubarb...and look what I did??  Made a pie--strawberry rhubarb!!!!!  Just about put "the old boy" (my hubby, JK) into cardiac arrest!  Also cooked the rest of it down and made rhubarb sauce....tart and tasty!!

No crocheting--no knitting---but am getting some ironing done.  Even managed to get some new items listed in my eBay store.

Hope you're enjoying your Monday......
