Blogger Friends

Good Morning Friends!

I'm sorry you haven't seen me around Blogger World much this week. I look forward to making the rounds and visiting all your blogs, as well as responding to comments very soon! This has been a busy week and I am still catching up!

Ashlyn is feeling better, but Kyle now has a temp. of 101.7 so he is home from school today. Poor sick boy will occupy this bed today!
We've been busy working on Girl Scout orders; filling, sorting, collecting, and distributing, (thank you so much for your support!)taking care of taxes, (our own plus my moms) and preparing applications for the scholarship fund. Did I mention that the Science Fair is coming in two weeks? How about the Spaghetti Dinner following the event, or volunteering? Ashlyn is in a big piano festival coming up in March and she's been trying to get several difficult pieces memorized, in addition to studying for the written portions of music theory and sightreading. It's a great challenge for her and she is almost ready! We're also planning her 8th birthday party in a few weeks, so life is indeed busy, but good! I am also working on a special surprise for some friends which I will tell you all about in the next day or so when the surprise can be revealed! :-)

Faith, from "Walk With Me By Faith" (her button links to her site on our sidebar) is working on a blog makeover for us, so be watching for a new blog design this week or next! Speaking of makeovers, remind to tell you about "Rachel" who will be coming to our home today to boost my fashion sense! Rachel used to work for a couture designer in France and is now getting started on her own business of helping everyday women like me jazz up our wardrobes on a budget. I can't wait to hear her tips about being stylish for less!

Lastly, we have had some very windy days here...60 miles per hour plus! A few days ago I found our mailbox blown open, (as well as all the neighbors) and a half dozen thank you notes I had written for the scholarship fund were floating in the pond! Newspapers, the neighbors mail, plus someone's Net Flix movies were all scattered on the street and in the pond. Since the snow had melted, it was muddy all around the pond and I sank down in the mud trying to retrieve the letters! I didn't want to slide into the pond so I tried pulling myself back up with my fingers and had mud everywhere! What a sight...muddy hands, feet, and dirty notes littered the car on my drive back to the house!
That same day I went grocery shopping and the wind blew my groceries out of the cart! Can you picture me trying to retrieve a loaf of bread flying down the parking lot? :-) It was literally "flying!"

Off for now to pick up another order of cookies from our Girl Scout leader...I will be in touch again, and I wish you all a good day, filled with happiness!

Until next time,
Denise :-)

okay...the vision of a loaf of bread flying made me smile..actually giggle! I am glad you didn't sink in the pond! Sounds like a busy house!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

It sounds like a day with Mary Poppins and Lucy! LOL! I'm glad you're okay, though, and I'm sorry about the letters.

I'm supposed to be on the road, but it rained which stopped me from loading some things in my car that needed to be loaded. But maybe that was the Lord's way of slowing me down.

Hope your son is better soon and that you stay SAFE from wind! :-)



Melissa said...

Sounds like a 'blustery' day (is that a Winnie the Pooh word?) so glad you made it through! Hope your son feels better soon...take your vitamins! :)

Kim said...

Very Winnie-the-Pooh; I agree w/ your friend Melissa, hee hee! I was getting exhausted reading about your whirlwind of activities, but ended cracking up at the sight of a flying loaf of bread! (Thanks for the giggle!!) Yikes! LOL

That is such a bummer about the wind blowing your mail around! What a pain. And the grocery cart doesn't sound like fun either. Can't wait to see your redesign of your site. Lazy Moms is getting a new look next week too. We are adding a Lazy Lounge (message board!)
