A Meme!

Kay over at Special K has posted a Meme. I think this is the first one that I have done..Yippee! Okay here goes..

1. You just received too much change. What is the most that you would feel obligated to come clean about it..if at all? I general don't look at the change part, but would notice the bills were off and correct it.

2. What is the last present you regifted? You would have to get presents to regift right? LOL, other then my hubby and kids I don't get gifts and I would never get rid of anything they give. me.

3. You're puking your guts up from the flu and are delirious, who do you call to take care of you? Rob, my hubby.. he always takes care of me..

4. It is 4am, you're at Dennys (or any 24 hour diner like establishment) after a night of drinking. What did you just order? Eggs, not runny, and toast, maybe a pancake. .

5. You were just handed $2500 and must spend it going away for the weekend. Where are you going and are you going to ask anyone to come along? Hmmm .. probably the Outer Banks.. never been there, and would of course take hubby and the chilrens..

6. Who shared your first ever romantic kiss and do you know where that person is now? His name was Lance.. no I am not making that up.. it was on my sister's back porch in Bowie, MD and I was 13.

Okay.. if you are reading this.. please consider yourself.. Tagged!


I love doing all sorts of crafts, I am usually not that good at them but my daughter and I have fun doing them. So when I stumbled upon this site and thought.. "I have to make these"! Sooo .. here are my finished results.

I think they are adorable. My daughter is doing some with her name on them, in cute little girly colors.. and I am doing a set for my cousin's baby with a Winnie the Pooh theme.

I also found these little garden markers at this site and made a few for the Square Foot Gardens.. Kelli has a beautiful website, but don't go there hungry because you will see so many goodies.. it will send you over the edge! Her Seasonal Delights ezine is packed full of all sorts of yummy and fun stuff.

Have a beautiful day!

The smoke from the Great Dismal Swamp fire is terrible here. I hope the wind shifts soon because whenever I go outside I get a headache. It is also hot out. I feel so bad for the people in Iowa with the flooding and tornadoes, boy they have gotten the short end of this stick this summer regarding the weather. Well, its almost 3:30 already so I guess I should get off of this thing and get something done around here.. or take a nap... no, I'd better get something done around here.. ::sigh:::

Little Visitor

I had a little hummingbird visit today, I was so excited!! I have waited a long time to see them in my backyard. He is a Ruby Throated Hummingbird.


What is that not a word? Well that is exactly what I have been doing in my house, Laura over at I'm an Organizing Junkie has hosted The Basket Carnival. I am not sure if its ongoing or what but I am going to try and join. My very first basket organization skills were in my linen closet... this is the before...

And this is the after... Not a dramatic difference but it has made everything more organzined, easier to find and it looks nice when you open the closet door.

Not to bad huh? I have my washclothes in one basket, face towels in another and pillow cases in one.

I used a toothbrush holder to hold all of my thermometers.

Now its your turn!!
