I saw this on SEW MUCH TO MAKE SEW LITTLE TIME. I think it awesome! The first eight people who make comments on this blog post will get something from me. The rules are as follows:1. What I will create will be personalized and intended for you. 2. It will be done this year (2009). 3. You will have no idea what it's going to be. It may be crocheted, painted, papercraft, sewn, embroidered, beaded. Or I might bake you something and mail it to you. Very exciting indeed! You won't know until you recieve it. The catch is, you must do the same thing over on your blog too. So...... post a comment and see what comes your way! Gonna have fun and shine in 2009!
After a nasty storm that rolled through last week, i woke up and went outside and this is what i found. We have a huge tree that is next to the house, and this limb was stabbed deep into the ground. Thankfull that it dropped by the sidewalk instead of coming through the house. It would have went through Natalie's bedroom ceiling! Thanks to the strong wind and lots of rain and hail we had lots of leftovers from the storm to pick up!
Last night Natalie was bouching or i should say "walking" around on the trampoline and pretty soon after sitting around the "torched up" tree stump i looked over at her and she was alseep on it! I found this rather cute, she wore herself out!
These are the wonderful Mothers Day Flowers from Robert and Natalie! I was actually laying tile down in the bathroom at the time and robert said that natalie wanted to tell me something and i came out and i seen these! Plus a mothers day cake and a beautiful card, that made me tear up! Yes if you dont know me by now, i have a very sensitive spot in my heart and personality!
Yes this is my flower bed around the portch. I had been sooo disappointed about the the flowers not coming up. The package had said 6 weeks and then you would see them blooming, well it took about a month and half! But they are started now and are coming up just fine. I guess it just matters on where you plant them because next to the portch; the ground stays cooler cause of the cement. Great thought!! If i would have only thought of that before hand. O well it all worked out great!
So i realized tonight that i havent recently posted anything new! So here i go! Casey's (my job) has really slowed down and i havent got that many hours maybe one or two days aweek! Its really hurting :( Mary Kay is also slow and i think that its all in fault for the ecomony. O well we are all hurting and making waves through the storm i guess. So meanwhile since i have all this time, i get to be outside alot more and get yard stuff down! We have also done some remodling in the house too! Mainly me laying floor tile down. Not the role out, but the peel and stick kind! Much cheaper but more time consuming. I think i spent about 5 hours on the floor working hard to get the kitchen done the other night. Needless to say i didnt wear knee pads and im still paying for bruised and sore knees! O well it was worth it, cause it looks great! Also we started buring a tree stump in the yard on Sunday and its still burning, alot of time and suntanning happening these last couple of days! Other then that, we have been doing good, and Robert is pretty steady with work and doing great! Natalie is doing great also, she is intrested in learning new BIG words such as bussiness, incrediable ect. She is only 2 to still keep you reminded! Im glad that she is smart or well on the way to that point, she walks around counting all the time and here lately learned how to count by 2's. Its all amazing. Her count is up to 34 and then she quites, and mixes them all up! I must add that Natalie has become brave when it comes to jumping on the trampoline. I have also chopped my hair off, cause it was just too long and i was tired of pulling it up and it being soo HOT!
