hi chiquita bananas! how are you all today? I hope wonderful. I am well rested and happy for once on a monday,lol. bran (dh) watched the boys quite a bit so I could rest and get some things done. and then he cooked me the most amazing dinner last night. yum yum. tequila, lime, spicy chicken; grilled jerk pineapple and mango; pasta with alfredo sauce and red peppers and sundried tomatoes; yellow and green squash with onions and cinnamon and bread. yum yum. I am going to restart my diet today (yes AGAIN smart alecs) and he made my fave things for me. what a dream boat he can be.
the boys have been pretty good ;)
my mom is coming up today.
how much better can it get,lol.
thougth I would share some things I have found lately.
I realllly want this...forearm forklift. We do a lot of lifting in my family and it just seems like I have to have it!
and this site...as seen on tv guys...they always beat the prices of the informercials, lol
Just finished reading Khaled Hosseini's second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns (the author of hte kite runner). Wow. I loved it! I didn't want to put it down. I was drawn to the characters instantly. Felt their emotions as if they were my own. I was able to follow all that went on in their contry and learned a lot too. Just a wonderfully written book. I can't wait to see what he writes next.
I have a deep fear going on right now. I don't spend A LOT of time here on the puter...but am starting to get carple tunnel. my wrist kills, fingers are swollen, pad of palm under thumb hurts and is numb. feeling it now in forearm. I have tried to fix my workspace...got a gel pad...do the exercises. Any help and advice is welcomed...I hate to think I might have to step away from my beloved scrapping. shivering in horror.
anyhoos. here are a couple new pages (still trying to finish that shutterfly book :) )
phewwww. still a lot to go,lol.
does anyone have a konica minolta dimage z10 camera??? I still don't know how to use it well and it will be awhile before I can get a new camera...sighhhh,lol.
I am also looking for some good hybrid ideas and templates. have the urge to get my hands dirty again in crafting. any links etc appreciated.
and why oh why haven't more of you sent in your words for the bingo game? hmmmmm. I ask with hands on hip. hurumph!
and I thought I would share the page I made for the pirate...workign on a 12x12 for you too. but here is the rectangle for now. all made by me. used a paper from alec on sxc.hu.com and his idea for the map. I am going to make a mini kit to use as a prize for some future contest ;) any ideas or desires for the kit???
click here to download...leave me a hello and a howdy....I really do read them.
Please no selling, claiming, sharing. No rolling up and using as a ball for badmitton (sp). No using to fill the holes in swingset so wasps can't get in. No filling potholes in the grass with it. bad girls bad girls.
hugs and happy scrapping.
