Pinning – Lots & Lots of Pinning


PinsPinning, pinning and more pinning!

Today, one quilt might get finished but, no promises. And I will apologize now – I cannot post photos of said quilt until after Christmas. Sorry folks, but I can't risk ruining the surprise.

The other pinning I have been doing is on Pinterest, of course. Check out this board I found, it is so full of "Useful Ideas" that I had to share it with you! We are trying to save some money here in our household, as many are, and this pin was perfect.

Now, I better get off of here and get to the first kind of pinning.

Have a great Saturday!


Does This Count?


So, yesterday was a super long day.  I am not complaining, just explaining. Because in fact, yesterday was a great day! GGRRR-EAT (Tony Tiger great) day!

I got to bed at 1:30 am yesterday. I tend to fill my plate pretty full, and then I tend to procrastinate. So, if you add those together it equals some late nights. There, that is my confession for today.

Anywho! Yesterday was the last day of our ladies Bible class. We voted on our next study, completed the current study, and then enjoyed a potluck luncheon. I think we all had a great time!

After class, I had to run a few errands and the first stop was Wal-Mart, aka Wally World or Wally's Family Fun Center, and noone enjoys going there. Oh, it is such a dreaded place. But, I walked in that door with my head held high, a smile on my face, and my list running through my head. I am also very bad about making a list and leaving it at home.

The first thing on my list was a copy of Ree's new cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks – A Year of Holidays. As I approached the cardboard Ree standing in the middle of the aisle I noticed that there was a woman standing there with a rather unhappy look on her face. She was staring off as if she was day dreaming, but as I passed by she glanced at me. A little jolt of excitement went through me as I grabbed the book. I wondered if my grabbing one would draw her attention to the book as well. Not that Ree needs any help selling books, I just wanted to see if the "monkey see, monkey do" thing would actually work.

It did! This monkey, got that grumpy monkey to pick up Ree's book. In my own little way, I helped that monkey have a better day. Who can flip through any of Ree's books and not smile.

Then, as I was heading down another aisle I got the sudden urge to jump on the cart and ride down the aisle. I didn't do it, but it made the smile on my face even bigger. That is kind of how my day went. It was a good day!

I sat down to watch one of my favorite shows, NCIS, on television and completely forgot that I needed to write a blog post. I had even thought about telling you all of this yesterday, and then I forgot! I blew the whole NaBloPoMo thing! I can't believe it! I meant to post! I really, really did! So, if I publish this and try to add the time and date as yesterday at 11:59 pm, will that count?


Home Sweet Home

We made a fast trip to New Mexico this weekend to see the kids. They are growing up so fast, and being 10 hours away – we miss a lot!

It was a very nice relaxing weekend, but over way too soon!!

Aidan (Poohs) made me a new potholder. Remember making these?
