RE:WELCOME TO NOVEMBER CHAT
(Date Posted:11/10/2016 10:40 AM)



 

Good Morning.

It appears that the world is still turning in the aftershock of Tuesday's election.   Riots in the streets, President and President-Elect meeting today to begin the transition of power, and the sun still shines.

Aimoo has been having problems, so I will try to post and see what happens.  No guarantees.

  I really PRAY that our country can be healed and that Mr Trump remains safe from the thugs who can't deal with not getting their own way.   I know that sounds dismissive of people who are really hurting, and I'm not talking about those people.   I've been one of them for the last eight years, and I really can feel their pain, and would love to be able to stop it.   On the other hand, I have no respect or liking from the "Occupy Thugs", those people who burn cars and smash things anytime they don't get their own way, or even just see an excuse to smash and burn.  Those are the thugs we've seen encouraged for the last eight years, and I hope there is some way to withdraw their 'permission' to behave like that.   I still remember Nancy Pelosi saying "God bless them" about the first "Occupy" crowd.  

This is the same mentality that the college students, going to the most expensive colleges seem to have.  I saw an article yesterday about Harvard, where there can be no flags and you don't have to sit next to anyone who doesn't agree with you, or at least that's what they are demanding.   Really?  What exactly are you learning for the buckets of money your parents are spending with that kind of attitude.  

Ok, rant over, for now.

I really wish I could help you to feel hopeful, but we are coming from completely different places.  The last eight years have been a nightmare for me, but with all my heart I don't want the next four years to be as unhappy for you.   

My prayer is that we can come together on common ground for those things we both believe in.   I will pray for that daily.

My path to hope, and I am talking hope, not certainty.   Initially I watched the Primaies and dismissed him easily.  No way that could happen ~ but it did, and he became my party's nominee.  My reaction ~ stunned, in disbelief, hoping for something to happen to give me another candidate.  There were so many really good choices!

Then I watched the Presidential debates and the other things he was saying, and I suspect you and I didn't see that too much differently.

Over time, though, I've watched his rallies, and for the most part I could see why he was attracting such huge crowds, while Hillary attracted very small crowds at much fewer events.   Toward the end, all  she did was screech how terrible Trump was, while he actually painted a vision for our country to the huge crowds before him.  

She called his supporters The Basket of Deplorables, and that became a battle cry.  As the Wikileaks and Project Veritas became available, it became clear that she doesn't hold a lot of her supporters in higher regard than she does his supporters. I wish the "Occupy Crowd" could see that and some of the things she and her staff have said.

He, on the other hand, seems to want to reach out to her supporters.  I am talking appearances here.  What the truth is remains to be seen.

Then the Evangelical Christians came behind Trump, praying for him and sharing their reasons for thinking he was the one they should support.   One thing that was often said was that God often uses the most unlikely person for His purposes.  Then they would give examples, which I'm sure you know I can't remember.  ;-)     I began to feel more and more hopeful, and we began to pray in earnest ~~~ along with Mike's buddy, Franklin Graham  (lol)   

I certainly remember the terrible and disgusting things he has said, the childish way he has acted, the names he has called.   I won't quickly forget.  But I really do believe I have seen a change in him, a maturity and compassion that I didn't see before.  I hope I am right ~ but I can't promise you anything.

The people who know him seem to know a different person than the jerk we saw in the Primaries.  Carson, Priebus, Gingrich and others talk about the gracious gentleman he is in private.   Obviously the other side is part of him too.    In his defense, Wikileaks showed that Hillary admits to being a different person in private than in public ~ though while we've all heard what a foul mouthed nasty person she is in private, she also says one thing about the issues in public, and quite another behind closed doors.  That worries me.  

I really do hope Trump dismantles many of the things Obama has done, and I know you probably disagree with me ~ though I don't believe you really want open borders and tons of unvetted Muslim Refugees to be imported.   I can't imagine how anyone who has been seeing what has happened in Europe could.

I believe this, like so many other things that horrify me, are the product of the money George Soros pours on those who do his bidding.   He is such a terrible man.  He turned his fellow Jews into the Nazis and that was the start of his wealth.  He is a Globalist Socialist and has called himself God.  

Chelsea is married to his nephew and was married in his mansion, I believe.  Hillary is tight with him. 

Ah, I'm beginning to ramble.   I think and I hope that Trump really does love this country and really wants to restore our former place in the world.   Certainly I could be wrong.  I'm just saying what I think, and why I have hope.  

We will have to wait and see what the reality is.

I hope your eye is much better today.

Hugs,

I am choosing to hope for the future of our country.  I prayed to God Monday night that we get the President that we need for this country and we have gotten Trump. So I have to believe there is a reason that he won. Perhaps he really does have what we need to survive the world as it is becoming. So I am not going to complain about every little thing I do not like...as in his hair, lol.  I actually thought it looked a trifle better today when he was with President Obama...not as poofy. Maybe  a good sign?  Ya think? I do not disagree with him on immigration. There is a lot I actually agree with. But I do not want to see Obama Care appealed unless he comes up with a better idea.  I do not want to see marriage equality changed and I do not ever want to see Roe vs Wade overturned.  I know you do not agree with me, but this is how I feel.  I have always said that we should back our president and show a united front to the world. So I will support him the best I can until I cannot and I pray that time never comes. I also pray he can guard his tongue more and his temper and make a real effort to bring honor to the White House. I think it is a bit ironic that his wife is going to use anti-bullying as her platform where I have often seen him as a bully. But maybe that can change too. So I am going to face the world with hope and prayers and expect a miracle because I know that miracles happen for those who believe and I do.
We have had our doors open all week and I really cannot believe it.  Nov 10 and it is warm enough to go out without a coat. It is so bizarre.  
My eye is fine today. Tonight I start the eye drops. So we shall see how that goes, it has a lot of warnings. That reminds me. I had better call anticoag tomorrow and tell them.  I hope you are sleeping better now that the world did not end. Seriously though, that concern about the presidency may have been why you were not sleeping well.  Only time will tell.  
Chat at you tomorrow.
XOXOXO

Happy Veteran's Day

Our flag is flying, and I have hugged my Vet today.  ;-)

I have been watching TV and reading posts on Facebook today.  It feels like the day after the end of one of the wars, or maybe like we are in the middle of a war that I can only pray we win.    

First up on Fox was Lee Greenwood singing "Proud to be an American".  That definitely set the right tone. Then I went to Facebook, and saw many, many posts for Veteran's day.   But then, of course, the TV showed the rioting and whining and the outrage because Trump won. I would be more empathetic, if any of them had been empathetic to me and the pain I felt for these last eight years. 

Apparently George Soros is funding the riots, and the people are being bused in to do the rioting in many cases.   Big Surprise.    Our country is so divided it's heartbreaking.  Is this what Veteran's Day is all about now?    I will continue to pray for a better tomorrow.

Last night we went to BJs for an Appetizer Dinner.  Haven't done that in a long time, and it was fun.  Then, because we are very smart, we ordered carry out for tonight, and I expect for tomorrow night ~~~ ribs for Mike and a crispy chicken salad for me.

No real plans for today, or tomorrow.  How about you?

I agree with all you have said, including Trump's hair and Melania taking Bullying as her cause.  lol.    I am hopeful, but I will wait to see what happens and how he and the Republicans govern.   If he rams unacceptable things down your throat and looks at you with disdain as Obama has with me, I will  pick up my sign and protest with you.  I know you won't agree with everything he does, and I suspect I will not either, but if he really tries to be the President of ALL the people of America and not just those who agree with him, I'll be more than happy.

I do want ObamaCare gone.  It was passed without a single Republican vote, and now that it is failing, they want the Republicans to share in the blame.   I don't think so!  The Republicans were completely shut out of all the discussions.  This mess is Obama and the Democrats and they need to own it.   Remember Nancy Pelosi's "We have to pass the bill to see what is IN the bill."    Say WHAT?  LOL

What Trump and Ryan have both said is that they wil not take the ACA down until they have something in place to replace it.  I just hope what they replace it with is a whole lot more sensible than Obamacare.   

I don't believe Marriage Equality or Roe v Wade will be overturned.  I do hope that not forcing the taxpayers to pay for abortions remains protected.  I think that is something that was on the way to being overturned and it's unbelievably wrong to make me, for one very good example, pay for abortions.  I hope the LGBT community will stop the attack on Christians, forcing a baker out of business and into deep debt for refusing to bake their wedding cake, while they would have been happy to bake anything else they wanted, and while there was another baker two doors down that would be happy to make their cake.    And while we're on the subject, we were busy importing Muslims from Syria and not allowed to even express a concern, while those are the very people who would not only not bake a cake for Gays, but throw them off a building to their death.    We also haven't imported any Christians from the areas where Christians are being slaughtered, babies beheaded, children burned alive ~ no, we've "rescued" the Muslims and left the Christians to Genocide.   

I don't know what kind of a President Trump will be, but I join you in prayer that he will be a good one, and that our Country can come together again.  

I'm so glad your eye is doing well today!  

Have a happy day.

God bless the U.S.A.

~ Dorothy

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY

THANK GOD FOR ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO HAVE PROTECTED OUR COUNTRY AND WILL CONTINUE TO PROTECT IT.  GOD BLESS THEM AND THE USA.

I AM TAKING SOUND ADVICE FROM MISS DORIS DAY.

KAY SERA SERA, WHATEVER WILL BE WILL BE

THE FUTURES NOT OUR'S TO SEE

KAY SERA SERA, WHAT WILL BE WILL BE

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE STUPID IDIOT RIOTERS AND I BELIEVE THAT HAD THE ELECTION GONE THE OTHER WAY THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME THING GOING ON GOT THE SAME REASONS AND MORE THAN LIKELY MANY OF THE SAME PEOPLE INVOLVED.  I DID NOT START THEM GOING AND I CANNOT STOP THEM. I REFUSE TO COMMENT ON ANY OF THE POSTINGS GOOD OR BAD FOR OUR PRESIDENT ELECT.  THAT IS A WASTE OF TIME. NOTHING BEING SAID CAN CHANGE THE OUTCOME AS IT IS IN THE PAST.  ALL THESE POSTS ONLY CONTINUE TO KEEP EVERYONE APART AND UN-UNITED AND THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE. TO REPEAT AN EXCELLENT QUOTE "WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG".

I AM HAPPY TO HEAR YOU GOT OUT AND HAD ONE OF YOUR APETIZER MEALS.  THEY ALWAYS SOUND LIKE FUN.

I BOUGHT A NEW RECLINER.  SHOPKO HAD PRE BLACK FRIDAY SPECIALS AND THE CHAIR I WANT WAS ON SALE AT THE SAME PRICE IT WILL BE ON BLACK FRIDAY. NOW SUZ AND JERRY HAVE TO PICK IT UP FOR ME. I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET IT INTO MY ROOM YET, BUT IT GIVES ME INCENTIVE TO CLEAN UP AND MAKE ROOM.  I HAVE LEFT OVER MONEY WHICH WILL HELP WITH CHRISTMAS GIFTS. LIFE IN SOMEWAYS IS GOOD.

NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT. WISH THERE WAS, I AM SO BORING.  BUT THAT CAN BE GOOD, AT LEAST THERE IS NOTHING BAD GOING ON, RIGHT?

CHAT ATCHA TOMORROW.

Hello.  Welcome to the weekend.  Looks like another pretty day, and we have no plans except for me to keep working on cards.  If you know the name of a good Phychiatrist to examine my head for deciding to make my Christmas cards when I am such a beginner, please send him my way.  lol  
 
Tomorrow afternoon Dena across the street is having a Stampin Up party.   I am both looking forward to it and dreading it because working on something new that intensely with other people is exhausting for me.  Silly I know, but true.  ;-)

I even had a semi-nightmare the other night because I'm making several things for Thanksgiving and a birthday, and in a semi-awake state, I realized that Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday, and there is no way I can get everything done and mailed in time to reach their destinations by Thursday!   Horror!  When I got up to go to the bathroom, I actually grabbed my datebook to check the date for Thanksgiving!   Whew.   LOL
smiley94

Not going to talk about politics today.  No point.  

La Nina has apparently arrived according to MSN Weather.  That is supposed to mean that the weather will be drier and warmer in the SW US (Yay), but the North is likely to be colder, wetter and snowier.  We'll see.    That's all the news that I have fit to print today. ;-)

Hooray ~ a new recliner!   Is this the one you spoke about earlier, large and cushy?   I wish you had been able to try it out before you bought, but it did really sound great.  I will keep my fingers crossed that it is even more comfortable than your first one that you loved so much!
I'm so glad you even have left over money for Christmas!   Life IS good!

Make it a great day!!

Good Morning

While I'm visiting with you, I'm watching "Where the Boys Are".  Remember that one?  In re-runs for you, of course.  I haven't seen it in ages, and I'm really enjoying it.  It's fun to see all the stars from 1960, so young.  I guess I was too, back then. ;-)  Such an innocent, hopeful time.

Yesterday I finished all the November and December cards I had assigned myself ~ except of course for the Christmas cards.   They all turned out 'almost good' and 'nearly nice'.  Sigh.  Everything that could go wrong while I was making them did, and then I got a call from American Airlines asking if I had charged a flight from Chicago to LAX on my Chase card.  NO!  It appears that someone who called himself Cecil Davis did, but American thought it was funny that I was in Colorado  and flying from Chicago to LAX, so they wanted to confirm.  Bless them.  Who knows how much fun Mr Davis could have had  at my expense!

Next, a call to Chase to learn that he had also charged the infamous $1 test amount and another $55 plus change.  Lunch?  I hope he gets food poisoning!   All the charges will be removed of course, but they had to cancel my Chase card and will send me a new card.  That is such a serious pain in the tush!

So, that was my day.  How was yours?     Stampin Up party at Dena's this afternoon where I think we will make Christmas cards and some kind of Christmas box.

Have a good one.

(Date Posted:11/13/2016 10:07 PM)


I shut down yesterday after getting so tired of all the bickering over Clinton and Trump on FB.  It is done, Trump is President Elect. It is time to come together.  I found this today and it makes me very hopeful!  

The November Full Moon falls on the 14th and is one of the brightest and boldest Supermoons that we won’t experience again until 2034.

This rare Supermoon falls in the sign of Taurus, which is a steady and practical earth sign. Taurus is represented by the Bull and in ancient mythology, the Bull represents illumination.

Taurus energy is about hitting that “bullseye” in order to awaken to our fullest potential and realize our goals, dreams and wishes.

Even though Supermoons are often highly emotional, this Taurus energy is going to bring a calming and grounding effect.

In fact, November’s Supermoon is going to help us to see things from a more practical and logical point of view and will even help us to put some actionable plans into place.

Emotions are likely to be high leading up to November’s Full Moon due to the many watery planets that are active in the early part of the month.

When the Moon shifts into Taurus however, we are going to feel a calming effect and will be able to see things with a newfound clarity.

The Taurus Full Moon also comes as a reminder for us to think about our self worth and feelings of security in the world. This is on both a practical and a spiritual level.

On a practical level, this Full Moon may be bringing up issues with finances that we need to address.

Taking responsibility for how you spend your money and how you earn your money is going to be highlighted by this Full Moon and perhaps this energy may help you to take a more conservative and practical approach.

I think this speaks to me...so I am going to take it as a sign of good things to come.  I hope the calming effect works on all the idiots that are out there still arguing.  I asked God to give us the President we needed.  I did not ask him to make it Hilary since he knows so much more than I do.  So it will be a wait and see. I am sad to say I do not know who the Vice President elect is.  I never saw past Trump.  I am going to post the above on FB and hope that someone takes it to heart, but I will not take it as far as finances part, lol.  

Now you need to sit back and relax and enjoy your card making.  If it is not fun, it is not worth doing. Especially since it is more expensive than buying cards. You have to love doing it.  Having nightmares about getting done in time is not fun.

OMG, thank God the airline called you.  That is so scary.  And what a pain in the ass having to update your card info all over the place. I wonder where he got your info from and whether he will ever be caught. It is big business for crooks.

OMG, I love "Where The Boys Are".  Wasn't that the introduction of Connie Francis?  So much fun it was and it also gave a very serious message out. I think I saw it again about a year ago and before that it had been a long time.

My recliner is wonderful.  It is almost as comfy as my cloud" was, and after it is broken in it may match it. I need to get the end of my room clean so that the AC can come out and the chairs can be switched and the old one thrown away, it is shot!!  So that is my life, not so bad at the moment!
XOXOXO

Good Morning!

I survived the card party yesterday ~ barely.  Lol.  Of course it was lovely getting together with neighbors who have become friends and meeting Dena's mother who joined us.  She, by the way, was really annoying!  She is lovely, gracious and at least 10 years younger than I am, even though she is actually 93.   I swear, my body thinks I'm 103 ~ or more.  Nothing works!   Even my voice sounded like a parody of a 103 year old woman, and I had more trouble walking than usual.  Let's see.  I can't see, hear, talk, walk or think.  Well, isn't that just special?!

I really felt awful when I got home.  Hard to explain, but it was the worst I've felt without actually being sick perhaps ever.  After we ate ~ and I kicked the heat up a notch and we watched TV for a while, I began feeling better, and by bed time I was ok, thank goodness.  It was actually a bit scary.

Kathy brought two cute Christmas cards for us to make and a sweet little box made from cardstock to hold four gift tags that we made.  It would be a cute gift for someone.   

Dena's kitchen table is not any larger than ours, but she had two more people than I had, and while we were a bit crowded, it worked fine.   Dee, who couldn't come to my party because she had had a shoulder replacement, and Dena's mom were added to my guest list ~ a good group.   I think we all feel a bit bad about not being able to invite everyone in the neighborhood, but you really can't.

Dena's home was Sheri's home before Sheri built down the street, but it looked entirely different with the different furniture.  She has lovely things, and where Sheri had a dining room and I have a Library, Dena and Steve have a Bar!   (Did I mention that while the elevation is different, the house is the same model as ours?)    They have a bay window in the bar, which is what the house design plan calls for, and they have a lovely portable wood bar, a couch, several chairs and tables in there, all white or very light furniture as is her living room furniture, and it looks lovely.    As she said, when you have company everyone seems to gather in the kitchen, but where we have our pantry, all of the other houses of this model have an open door between the kitchen and the (dining room), Bar in Dena and Steve's case, so the kitchen crowd overflows into the bar rather than the living area of the great room.  Really nice, and fun to see what others have done with their homes.  I always like everyone else's better than ours, and yet ours is just purrrfect for us.  Just not as showey for company. ;-)

My niece Mary Ann has had surgery again, a different "girl" problem, so she will be home for a couple of weeks.   A normal aunt and uncle would have sent her a bouquet of flowers to help in her recovery, but her aunt and uncle are "Deplorables", so we sent comfort food!  We sent a jar of Grandma's Chicken Soup and a couple of packages of Mac and cheese.  LOL

Of course we had to check it out before we sent it to be sure it was good enough, and it was.  The soup really does taste home made, and while Mike liked the mac 'n cheese very much, I thought it was the best I'd ever had.

Grandma's Chicken Soup  if you'd like to check it out.

I got a notice from UPS last night that my new Credit Card should arrive today.  YAY!

At my house, the Super Moon is very bright, but not all that big.  Kind of disappointing, especially when I see the pictures of it in other locations.   How about by you?

I would love to believe that we can one day soon come together again as Americans, though it does seem hard to believe now.  Such ugliness ~ we don't just disagree and try to convince each other anymore, we need to kill anyone who doesn't think exactly as we do.  (Well, not you and I!).  It's frightening and disgusting ~~ and I think it really is the reason Trump won.   Conservatives like me have been called every foul name in the book for not walking, talking and thinking lin lock step with the Liberal Elete, and while I'd had enough a long time ago, it looks like the a lot of other people have too, and aren't willing to take it anymore.   That really is what comes of suppressing free speech.     I hope, and will pray that the signs of the moon or whatever will bring about peace ~ and soon!

Like you, we prayed for the right leader for our country, and we have to believe that is what we were given for as long as we can.     I didn't know anything about Mike Pence before he was nominated to be VP either, but I have really been impressed with him.   He's a committed Christian, a thoughtful, articulate man, with a lot of experience.   

I am SO glad that your new recliner is wonderful!   Awesome!!  I hope you got a fabulous night's sleep last night!

 Now today I have to get back to work on the Christmas cards.   I have time if I keep at it.   I haven't even updated my card list from last year, so I'm not even sure how many I will need.   Sheesh, Dorothy!   lol.   There is so very much I should do right now, before Christmas.  I'm sure very little will get done, but I'll go as far as I can. 

Have a happy day.

I did not sleep in my new chair, still sleeping in the broken one.  I need to clean the end of the room that the chair goes in.  It is the end with the AC too. So that will come out and the old chair and the new chair will go in.  But today I had 2 tags to make and tomorrow I am going to Fauska's to watch some more Reign.  Lunch from A&W and supper, who knows. Louann's 60th birthday is Sat and Bruce started a FB page for her.  She has never been on FB.  I am happy she will be. But he is going to see how many people we can get to be her friends and say Happy Birthday to her.  I have to see if we are doing anything for her day. I may not be on tomorrow night.  I need to go to bed early tonight so that I am up showered, dressed and ready to go as Nan is picking me up at 10:45 am.

Yay for surviving your card making party.  I would love to see pictures of what you made.  How did you make the little box.  I love little boxes made from paper.  There is a man at church who makes little boxes for different holidays and puts candy in them and passes them out to some of the ladies.  He always gives to mom and I collect the boxes from her.  I have planned on taking one apart to see if I can figure our how they are made.  I hope you got your card in the mail.

The supermoon is not all that large here either.  Though it is bright and beautiful but a bit too cloudy here for a good look.  I hope the calming influence of this moon actually works.  If all these rioters could step back and look at themselves and ask what good are they really doing, it would all end.  Peaceful, informative picketing would get there point across in a much better and more accepted way.  Still, the election is done and that is that, nothing will change.  Do you think that some moron will try to assassinate him?  I am oh so sick and tired of this.  
I have the 2 year olds and the 4 year old done for Christmas.  They are each getting an overnight bag...Finn-Spideman, Sailer-Finding Dory and Liam & Sam are both getting Paw Patrol.  In each bag will be jumbo coloring books to go with their bag theme, along with crayons and stickers.  Just have Olivia and Reid & Tricia's baby due on Sat.  It would be cute if it was on Louann's birthday.  
XOXOXO

Good Morning

Ok ~ how did this happen?  It's already the middle of November!   HELP!

You know that every year we have the Landscaping Service put up outside Christmas decorations for us, but what you don't know is that every year they raise their prices.  This last one was just tooooo much!   Actually, the last couple of years have been, but since we aren't traveling or doing a lot of the things that we used to do, I was willing to spend the money to kind of do something for the neighborhood.  Well, this year I said "Enough!"     I thought I might find someone else to put something up for us and cut down on the amount we put up, but I haven't done a darned thing about it yet, and it's almost Thanksgiving!   

I have no problem with not putting lights across the roof or putting up the lighted wreaths, but I really would like to have the big lighted wreath over the front door and I definitely would like to at least have the Spruce decorated.  I really would like to continue to essentially rent the lights rather than buy our own, only because storing them and a big wreath would be hard for us.    It may be too late now even if I can find someone.   Bad Dorothy!      It may be rather bleak at our house this year.

On a more positive note, I really got a LOT done yesterday.  Yes, that is me speaking ~ a LOT done!   Of course I still have a LOT more to do, but we won't dwell on that.  

 I really have been enjoying the "card parties" (much more than I would enjoy going to a party and playing cards ~ lol).   I just get so tired it's pathetic.   Yesterday morning a Police car pulled up in front of our house but across the street and the officer got out and walked up the block past our house.  Then a fire truck, ambulance and police car came and parked up the street ahead of her ~ and to the right of our house.    Well, this looked like it might involve one of our neighbors so I went outside to look, and all the activity was at the last house on our street.   Ultimately everyone went away without bringing out a stretcher or a fire hose, so I'm assuming all was well ~ thank goodness!   I wasn't the only nosey neighbor.  Sheri came from the up her block (which is in front of our house) to see what was going on, too.  Then she and I talked for a bit about the card party, the planned Christmas party and other things, and she said that the last thing Kathy had us make, the little box with gift tags, was just too much for her.  LOL   Made me feel a lot better to know it wasn't just me!  Ha.     Oh, how I wish you were close and could join us!   Kathy had the paper for the box scored for us, and then we cut away the parts we didn't need and glued it together.  I think it would be relatively easy if you knew what you were doing, but since we didn't, it was a bit stressful, with so many of us waiting for scissors or glue or instruction or whatever.

Kathy posted a picture of the things we made at the party on her small Demonstrator's page, and I copied it to share with you. 

There is white card stock on the back of the tags with "To" and "From" stamped, and of course the insides of the two cards are stamped, too.

She had two different cards planned to bring for us to make, but then her Big Shot died!   She has had it for 15 years, so I guess that was a good life for it, but it made it impossible for her to bring the cards she'd had in mind for us to make because she couldn't cut them out.   I'm amazed that she quickly came up with two other designs, and they really were cute, I think. 

The little box of gift tags is a cute idea too, and I just might do something like that for next year.  I'll start in January ~ lol

I decided that the next time I am going to eat something before I go to the party ~ something protein ~ and see if that helps.  I have always had issues in classes of any kind because I concentrate so hard and sort of stress myself.   I'll get another chance to see if that helps on Saturday, when four of us are going to a card making class at that Scrapbook Shack I've told you about.  We'll leave at noon and it should last all afternoon, so I'd best be fortified!

I did get my replacement credit card yesterday morning ~ boy, that was quick!   Whew ~ it makes you feel a bit helpless not to have a credit card, even if there isn't anything you are looking to buy.  Ha.  I updated my Amazon and Pay Pal information, but I  honestly don't remember what other locations have my card on file.  I'll have to wait until I go to buy something and update them at that time.

You are really on top of it with the kids gifts, and they sound wonderful ~ original and clever and things the kids will really love.   Since I have never even met most of "my kids" except on FaceTime, and I haven't a clue what they have or what they want, I'm doing books again this year.   Poor Vince's birthday is only a couple of weeks before Christmas, and he will get two books for each occasion.  I know Aaron and Christina read to him, and they've told me a couple that I have sent are his favorites, so I'm probably ok for now.  In time, I will need to come up with something else, but I won't resort to the gift certificates or money until they are a LOT older.   I ordered a Baby's First Christmas ornament for Lily, with her name and the date on it from Lenox and I just got word that it's on the way.  I've gotten those for each of the other kids, so she must have one too.  

One of the books I'm giving all three is "The Library Lion" which really is cute, a story about a Lion who takes up residence in the Library and learns how to be quiet and helpful and ultimately saves the day.   I know Katie takes Jack to the Library often, so I hope he likes it.  The other Christmas books are Bedtime stories for 3 year olds or 4 year olds, with a lot of the old stories you and I grew up with.  Apparently they really like them ~ yay!   For Vince's birthday, I also got The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  I'm guessing he will have seen it on TV, but you know the book is always better ~~~ LOL. 

I am giving that Spider Man card to Vince for his birthday, since that was one of his Halloween Costumes, and I have another store-bought super hero one for him as well.   If I have time I may make tags for the Christmas presents for all four.  

Have a wonderful time with your friends, and Happy Birthday to LouAnn.  

Another beautiful card ~ I am so lucky! The sentiment is one of my favorites, and so appropriate for now, with all that is going on.   THANK you!!

Good Morning!  Happy Hump Day!

OhMyGosh ~ it's supposed to reach 80 degrees today, and then drop to the 40s with possibly SNOW tomorrow.  LOL

We are getting our Thanksgiving Grocery Delivery this morning ~ another opportunity to entertain the neighborhood.  Ha.   We do plan to go out for Thanksgiving dinner at the Keg as we have been for the last several years, BUT we also plan to "make leftovers" on Black Friday while everyone else is out shopping.  ;-)

I had another productive day yesterday.  Two in a row ~~ well, if the Cubs can win the series!and Trump can win the Presidency, I guess I can have two productive days in a row!  Ha.

You've heard that old phrase "Too soon old and too late smart?"   That's me.   I have been the one who got our outside Christmas decorations put up and I felt it was my job this year since we decided not to pay the increase to have Mountain High do it.   Finally I got smart and asked Mike to take it over, because i'm so busy with cards that need to be done before we can put up our inside decorations, and some other things.  If we wait much longer, we may not be able to get it done at all if we do find someone to do it for a reasonable price.   So, yesterday he started calling and we are waiting for two more bids, but we did get one and to do all we have been having done would cost even more than Mountain High was going to charge!   I asked him to price just having the 3 foot wreath above the portico over the front door and the Spruce tree and we did get a price for that which is high but reasonable.  Everyone seems to want to charge more to decorate the tree than the house!   Anyway, we will wait and see if the other two give us a price, and if not or if it's unacceptable, we will just have the one wreath and the tree done.  I think it might look classy.   Less is more?

Hope you're having a fun day!

I HAD MY POST ALL DONE AND THE INTERNET 

JUST BLANKED OUT...FOR NO REASON.  SO I

HAVE LOST MY POST AND I AM SO SICK OF THIS.

I AM JUST GOING TO SHARE THE HIGHLIGHT OF 

MY DAY.

LOUANN AND BRUCE WELCOMED THEIR 6TH 

GRANDCHILD INTO THE WORLD TODAY.

BABY BOY LYRIK LEONH FAUSKA.

THE MIDDLE NAME IS PRONOUNCED LIKE LANE.

LOUANN'S MAIDEN NAME IS LEONHARDT AND 

THEY WANTED TO PUT THAT PART OF THE

 FAMILIES NAME INTO HIS NAME, BUT IT THEY

 JUST USED LEON IT WOULD LOOK LIKE LEE-ON

 AND THEY WANTED IT TO BE LIKE IT IS

 PRONOUNCED SO THEY ADDED THE H.  I THINK

 THIS IS A NAME THAT A CHILD COULD HAVE

 ISSUES WITH. HE WILL PROBABLY GET HIMSELF

 A NICKNAME OR HAVE THEM CALL HIM RIK

 WHEN HE IS OLD ENOUGH.  THEN AGAIN, KIDS

 ARE RUNNING AROUND WITH ALL KINDS OF

 STRANGE NAMES THESE DAYS.

LOUANN SAID THEY SAID IT WAS IRISH BUT I

 COULD FIND NOTHING LINKING IT TO IRISH.

  LYRIC-FEMALE IS FRENCH.  LYRIK-MALE IS

 ENGLISH AND ORIGINALLY GREEK-LYRIKOS

 AND LATIN-LYRIKUS.  THE MEANING IS ORIGIN

 AND POPULARITY OR WORDS OF A SONG.

ANYWAY, HERE IS MY OTHER NEW TAG.

Twas a week before Thanksgiving . . . Can you believe it?  Yesterday it was 80 degrees.  Right now, it's 37 and it just started to snow!   Brrrr.   I was going to put the covers on the chairs on the porch yesterday, but lost all steam again and didn't get it done.  Overnight when I thought it was probably snowing, I felt so guilty.   Now I have the opportunity to get it done ~ and I still hadn't.  When I saw the snow start, I yelled for Mike to help and we scrambled!

The garbage has already been picked up and Jake or Barbara brought our can back up to the garage for us.  The recycle bin still hasn't been picked up, and probably won't be until this afternoon. 
We have one package out on the porch to be picked up by the post office.  We pre-paid it online.  We still need to get Katie's birthday card in the mail, hopefully today so it will get there in time.  

I woke several times during the night and assumed that I was awake for good, but I was not, and in fact slept until 7:40!   By the time I was dressed and ready to face the day, Mike had coffee ready and shortly after that he made breakfast of corned beef hash and eggs with hollandaise.  Yum!   I am one lucky woman.

Also, I am a somewhat more productive woman than I have been.  I have all my Christmas card cardstock cut, scored and folded, all of the red background pieces cut and all of my Santa's cut out and half of them affixed to the red background paper!   Still much left to do, but I feel slightly hopeful that I may get them done before NEXT Christmas!
It still promises to be a good day, even though Obama and Angela Merkel are talking endlessly on my TV and preventing me from watching Outnumbered.  (chuckle)

Mary Ann said they got the chicken soup yesterday and already had it and loved it!  They are going to have the mac 'n cheese this weekend when Aaron and Christina and the kids come.  Then they will have something they call "The Meal", which Mary Ann's mother-in-law always had for Thanksgiving ~~ Pork, dumplings, sauerkraut, apple sauce and gravy!    Then on Wednesday Katie, Bryan and Jack will come for Thanksgiving and to celebrate Kate's birthday with I suspect a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.  I told her to please let the others do the work this year.  Katie's birthday often coincides with Thanksgiving, but this year Thanksgiving is a bit early.  No matter, they will celebrate the two occasions together as usual.  

The new baby's name really is unusual.  I think if I saw it, I'd think it was pronounced Lyric, and rather musical and feminine. Transgender is "in", so I guess if others pronounced it that way, it would be ok.  LOL   

Thank you for my bee-u-ti-ful new tag!!

Prayer request ~~~ Barb just got the results of her last blood test from her Kidney Dr, and her numbers have dropped dramatically.   When she was first diagnosed, the Dr she saw was going to put her on dialysis right away, but through a lot of luck she got her current Kidney Dr instead, and he is wonderful.  She has done so well, getting her numbers to come up a lot and holding off dialysis for a couple of years.   Now, she is threatened again with that fate.   Please pray for her.   She will have another blood test on Monday.  Please pray that her numbers are better, and continue to go up again.
Thank you!

Now do not start using those 4 letter words with me young lady.  I do not want to be hearing that white weather word. I hope you did not get too much.  I plan on getting my AC out of my window this weekend so I do not want any of that dandruff falling from the sky before then.
 
I prayed for Barb and will continue to do so. She has done so well I have asked God for a Thanksgiving miracle.  She deserves one.

Mike is such a keeper.  I wish I could go out to breakfast.  I never get that made for me, other than my microwave omelette that I make myself most Sundays. I used to love going to breakfast Sat mornings with mom after we had shopped the farmers market. Oh well.  

I know that you will get those Christmas cards done in time.  You are doing so well getting them all prepped. I am really impressed.

I have worked on my moms checkbook 3x and cannot get it to balance. I cannot believe it, this does not happen to me. I even rewrote it. So much scribbled out and rewritten. So today I had her sit down with me and we again rewrote it. What I came up with was only $14 away from their total. So then I brought up her account on line and checked to see how many checks were actually back and then subtracted the ones that were from her account balance on line and came up with the same total as previously.  So we are taking that total and moving on but will be watching for what is screwing us up.

I finally got mu HP over to Kermit to see if he could fix it. He asked my why I never thought to bring it to him before so much damage was done. He is going to look it all over tomorrow to see if it can be saved.  Cross your fingers for it.  I love that laptop. I will be glad to put this Dell to sleep for a long while.

I cannot decide what to do for our Christmas Cards this year. I want to do me as Santa and put a pigtail wig on mom and a big lollipop and have her telling me what she wants for Christmas. I think it would be adorable bug how to make a pigtail wig.  Hmmmmm.  Well that's it for me. Chat with you tomorrow. XOXOXO

Good Morning!

Crazy weather here ~~ 80 degrees one day and 5.5 inches of snow the next.  Arvada actually got the second highest snow totals of the day!

I didn't get as much done yesterday, but still I got a bit done including laundry and work on cards, and of course the trash and recycles taken out and some cards mailed.

Today I don't have high hopes for accomplishing a lot because Shauna is coming ~ still, I guess getting the house cleaned IS accomplishing a lot, even if I don't do the work myself.    Tomorrow I'll be going to the card class at the Scrapbook Shack, so I don't anticipate getting much done before Monday.  Sunday, I believe, will be a Day Of Rest.  ;-)

We did sign a contract to have our outside decorations put up.  We've cut way back to only the big wreath over the front door and the Spruce tree, so we've saved some money and I HOPE that Less is More.  smiley86  We'll see.   I don't know when they will get the job done, but it's my fault if it's late because I waited too long to ask Mike to take it over.

And so it goes.

I told Barb that you were praying for her too. Things have been going so well for her that I think this hit her hard.  I know it did me, and I'm not the one effected!   When she first was diagnosed, her kidneys were operating at 7% then they went to 8% and then to 12.  Her Kidney Dr was amazed.  Now they have dropped back to 8%, and at 5 she will have to go on dialyses.  I'm believing that won't happen, and I want to pray her back to 12.  I knew we could count on you!  

Mike's family always went out to breakfast a lot.  Mine never did. Toast and coffee was about "it" for us, and I liked lunch instead.   He has converted me.  Now I almost never have lunch, but really enjoy a late breakfast, either "in" or "out".  I never cook breakfast myself though.  Oh, yes.  Mike is definitely a keeper!

I would say I can't believe you can't find the problem in your mom's check book because I know you always do ~~ but while I've been able to balance our checkbooks, I often have FITS with our budget book.  This time I have gone two months without even trying and I suspect it will go longer.  I may have to throw evreything out and start all over again!   Good luck!!

Good luck also with your LapTop!  I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed!

Your idea for Christmas cards is so cute ~~ again!  You are so clever!   I can't wait to see the finished cards!

Gotta go.  I'm not dressed yet, and Shauna will be here in a little over an hour.   Have a good one!
