It is all good

Another whirlwind weekend. I think the weekends go by faster and faster. Maybe I try to get so much accomplished and go go go, that they speed by! It was a fun weekend and I was able to pick up a few goodies for my tree. My plan is to have a different more shabby tree this year with pastels. Hmmm we will see if I manage that. But hey I live alone and I will enjoy my tree.
Friday was clean and laundry day. I am pleased to say no further plumbing problems like last weekend.
Saturday was "Starbucks" and Phoenix day. Colleen and I headed to Melrose and I was able to find an ornament and the neatest frog flower jar. Love it. From Melrose we hit a small antique shop and although there was cute stuff nothing I fancied. Then to Rust and Roses where I found a few more ornaments. From there we went to our favorite Olive Annie. Yeap we both found clothes but yeap we both resisted. Prices above our budgets. Surprised huh???? We were both hungry so off to Wildflower and the…

Lazy Sunday

Another busy weekend is ending. It seems like today should be Saturday and not Sunday. As I said in my previous post Friday was a bust, cleaning up after my small??? plumbing problem. I am happy to say that the stuff I dumped in the drain and left for 8++++hours worked its magic and all drains seem to be doing well. I say this with my fingers crossed!
Yesterday started early. A group of us met at Crackers in Mesa and had a baby shower for a dear friend. Good food, good laughs good time. Following the shower we headed to Mesa and Peddlar's Wife. Each of us had something we were looking for and most of us found these items. From Peddlars Wife to lunch and then to Market Square. Yahoo I found the bread pans I was coveting. Snatched them up quick and even found enough for Colleen, Kim, and Michelle Yeah for us. Also found another flour sack towel that was reasonable, and 2 more halloween ornaments to match the ones my sister sent me.
From Market Square we headed to Devine M…

Friday Trials!!!

I did have great plans for today, a day I took off from work. But great plans changed and I am in the middle of a water problem!! It all started last nite when my bathroom flooded into my bedroom. Soggy carpet, 2 " water sitting in the bathroom and bedroom. Good thing I have a wet vac. It was certainly put to good use. Then it was noted that none of the drains in the house were working: bathrooms, showers, stools, sinks. So being the ever resourceful person I am, I dumped one bottle of drain cleaner down one of the drains. Yes 1 bottle. Let it sit and lo and behold everything worked again. so here I am left with a soggy mess. Get up this am and think, logically mind you I will do laundry. Big big mistake. now nothing is working again and dear Mr Roter Rooter Man is busy. Yeah right. So once again I am sitting in a flooded bedroom vacuuming up water and praising the fact I own my on home. Good news I cleaned up my bedroom and got rid of 3 garbage bags of clothes. B…

Doing the Happy Dance

I have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of a special package from Heather at Speckled Egg. It was the dress swap that I had joined. Well today was the day and I was so excited to open the mailbox and there was "the package". Loved all of my little dresses and can't wait to get them all hung up in my scrap room. Fun fun swap!
and I just noticed I have had over 3000 visitors to my blog since June of 2006. Wow who knew?

Quiet day

It's been a busy past couple of days, so today I'm kicking back and enjoying the beautiful fall weather. Well Az fall weather that is. Friday was supposed to be a short day of shopping with Colleen and turned into a marathon. I was so tired by the time I got home. Found some neat stuff at the Peddlars Wife.. They are still clearing out stuff for there going out of business sell. We stopped at the Paper Studio and I was able to pick up a few staples for my altered art. Got the new stickles colors. Love the cinamon as it looks like root beer.

Saturday was Renee's Book of Spells at Devine Memories. It was a fun class and my book is finished. Michelle's Aunt and her sister Jenn were also there and it was good to see Jenn. After class we headed to TC's for a great lunch. Then off to find ink cartridges and calendars for Colleen. Another long day!! So today I'm enjoying the quiet and the weather.

Weekend Recap

Well it is Sunday and time for my weekly recap of the events this week. Work was good no major crisis and end of the month reports are done and sent and billing was done. Check check check!!!
Friday was a special day with 3 special friends. We had planned a day to create and hang out and reconnect. All of us have such busy lives that it was fun to just get caught up and relax and explore. This day was also to celebrate Colleen's birthday and her wish was to do a witch on canvas. What a fun experience to see how we all took the idea and went in different directions and created amazing collages on canvas. Alas I only have pics of mine but will need to get the rest of them. Colleen brought everything but the kitchen sink so we had lots and lots of stuff to play with. As a celebration we each made a witch's hat and gave her including Aliya. Again so fun to see how we interrupted the theme. Kim's was black and sparkly with a neat witch picture check it out on her bl…
