{Love Thursday}

Ha ha… you read that title and thought this was going to be a sappy love story didn’t you? Admit it… you know you did! I’ve said before I’m just not that deep or meaningful half the time so I j-u-s-t know how much I pink puffy heart all this news about the SWINE flu and I knew that you all luved it as much as I did! So to help us keep up with where the flu bug has traveled the great souls over at Google put it on a map… less work for us! Seriously though, the real {Love Thursday} posts are worth the read so go over there and check them out.

Apparently the people over at Google decided to use a different “FluTracker” which can be found here. I must warn you though… it takes several clicks to be able to view the interactive map. I don’t like it as well as the original Google map, but that’s of course only my opinion.

Today is my 300th post! Can you believe it? I can’t believe it! Who knew I had so much to say? Ok, wait… don’t answer that!! Not only is today a great milestone for me, it’s also a milestone for my Mom. Today is her birthday!
On April 28th, 1949 in Nashville, Tennessee, my Mom was born! She turns a spry young age of 60 today!!! Woo hoo!! Here is wishing you a happy, happy, happy birthday!!!

Simmer on Low

Happy Monday everyone!

I am exhausted! Starting on Friday, I was running. I feel like I haven’t stopped running yet. I’m looking forward to the day where I have nothing to do all day and I can sit around in my pajamas ALL.DAY.LONG!!

I had a plan. I had a plan to slather myself in sunscreen every time I went outside. You see, I’m what I refer to as Whitey McWhiteWhite. I’m really, really white. I’m who the Native Americans think of when they say “the Pale Faces”. I had no chance really. Even my ancestors are the whitest of all white people. You’d think somewhere along the way, they’d added some color. Anyway, I don’t tan well. I burn and peel. The plan was to wear sunscreen as much as possible so I don’t get the dreaded “farmer’s tan”. In case you aren’t sure what that is, it’s where you are outside all day, everyday and end up only having a tan from your elbows down or from the bottom of your shorts down to where your socks and shoes are resulting in you looking like you are still wearing clothes when you are naked. It’s comical, trust me. I made the mistake the first mowing of the yard a couple of weeks ago and forgot the suncreen then too. This weekend did me in though.

Friday I volunteered to help out at the school fundraiser. I wasn’t quite aware that I would be sitting in direct sunlight from 9AM until 2:30PM. The sunscreen was in my car. Not on me. The painful effects didn’t actually kick in until that night. Saturday and Sunday where both busy days with having to visit the grocery store, multiple baseball practices, and mowing the yard again, which takes just about 3 hours by the way. I did remember the sunscreen, but I think the damage was already done. It didn’t really help since I was already burnt to a crisp. Where would I be without aloe?!?!

Imagine this all the way to where my socks were and from where my t-shirt sleeves ended to my hands…. I am lobster, hear me cook.

P.S. I should clarify that this picture above is of the top of my legs….. just in case someone thought it may be something else….

Hooked On…

Nothing!  Today there won’t be a Hooked On Fridays post because I’ve somehow managed to find myself helping at the school all day for their Spring Fling fundraiser!  I’m not sure how I get talked into these things, but I volunteer for a short amount of time and then end up being recruited for the entire day.  I hope everyone has a great Friday and enjoy this lovely weekend!  Well, it’s going to be lovely here anyway!!

Oh!  I can’t forget that today is Miss Eden’s very first birthday!!  Seems like only yesterday when she was born!  Can’t believe it’s already been a year!  Happy birthday Eden!

New Project

I’m working on a new project for the Etsy shop.  I’m working without a pattern here so it’s trial and error.  I hope that it will be trial and success soon!

Like my purple desk??
 Sew far, sew good.  Ha ha I crack myself up.

UPDATE:  I worked on this yesterday and met with little success.   I’m going to have to start from scratch I believe….
