Once a week blogging!!!

Once a week blogging. Better than nothing I guess. I need blogger motivation. A new template huh Amy. Fall pictures to post. Layouts maybe. I know I need to be a stay at home grandmother. I could start a new trend. Be there with cookies and milk after school. Haul to practices and such. Volunteer at their schools. Unfortunately I like to spend money and buy things I think I need, so working is what I'll do. It does get more tempting every year to say hello retirement.

Where did my weekend go? Yesterday Amy, Kyra and I spent the day hanging out. Starbucks and shopping. We didn't even spend too much money. I can't believe all the Christmas things out already. Tomorrow is the 25th, so that means there is only 3 months until the big day. Why do I feel like I'm already behind schedule? Why do we succumb to the pressure anyway?

Today I spent all day on the computer. I'm making a mini album for Wendy for her birthday. I used Shabby Princess Olivia album kit. For procrastinators like myself it's great to be able to do 12 quick layouts in a day. I spent some money digi shopping too. I bought some new things from Shabby Princess and Gina Millers new things today. I'm such a sucker for all these cute things and they seem so cheap. I'm sure when the credit card bill comes I'll think differently. O well, that's why I work, remember.

Here's a couple of the layouts. I hope Wendy likes them. I do but then anything with my grandkids in it warms my heart.

Desperate Housewives is going to start in a few minutes. Have to see if it's going to be worth watching this season. I hope to stay awake long enough to see the next show with Sally Fields. It looks good too. Night all!!

Wow 2 days in a row. I don't have much to blog about tonight. Just a typical day in the neighborhood. I put a Marie Callendar meal in the crockpot this morning so it was nice to come home to the aroma of supper already cooking. I've been in the mood to bake so I went to the store and bought some ingredients to make a few things. I made pumpkin muffins tonight. They're quite good, not low calorie at all, so hence very good. Maybe I'll post the recipe tomorrow. I also bought ingredients to make brownies with caramel frosting. I ran out steam tonight so I hope I can bake those tomorrow after school.

Do you ever have one of those times when you think maybe the stars aren't aligned right in your galaxy? When school started a student stomped my right big toe and bent the toenail way back. Major pain. Then a couple weeks ago while cooking I cut my finger fairly deeply. Went through a half a box of bandaids. Well tonight, sitting at the kitchen table in my barefeet of course. I turn and go to push my chair back and whack! I hit my left big toe on the table leg. Double major pain. I don't think I broke it, but it still is letting me know I have a toe. Klutz, Klutz!!

I was going to scrapbook some tonight but it's getting late and I want to watch CSI Miami. Maybe tomorrow.

And remember - Really important stuff my kids taught me quote of the day: Making your bed is a waste of time.

A Layout, a recipe and much to do about nothing

It's blogger time again. I'm such a bad blogger. I can spend all weekend on the computer and still not find time to blog. Well no more. "Ha", the crowd says! "We'll believe it when we see it." Of course my crowd consists of my daughter Amy. Hi Amy.

I really did spend the weekend on the computer. I think I could spend the majority of my time there, between surfing the net and digi scrapping, is there life outside this. I spent most of the time working on layouts for this album I'm doing about the family reunion we had. Actually it's more like a memory cookbook. I'm not sure how it'll turn out but I'm enjoying the process. I did about 5 pages and 4 recipe cards. I think I've found my niche though. Recipe cards. Quick, simple and useful. What more could you want.

The weather has taken a delightful turn to the cool side. Bring on the crockpot meals and hot apple cider. We went to Sam's today on our way to the in-laws and I bought a variety package of apple cider. Maybe I can wean myself off of so much Diet Coke. Doubt it. I've also been in a mood to bake too. The trouble with that is who's going to eat it. Me and Steve of course and we need it like we need a hole in our heads.

Blogger thinks I want my layout and recipe at the top of the page. OK. Why not?

Thought for the day from "Really important stuff my kids have taught me." There is no good reason why clothes have to match. Think about it who made up that rule anyway.

OK I have to start bloggging on a regular basis. I can blab about nothing without any trouble most of the time. Surely I can do the same on a blog.

Had a great weekend. Accomplished some things. Did alot of nothing too and still have today left. I'm hoping to go shopping with Amy and Hannah later. Amy if you're reading this this morning call me I don't want to wake up everyone. That is why I'm blogging now in hopes that Amy is on the computer and will see this. She is the only one who reads this anyway.

Later dudes.
