uuummm……coffee

So we finally ordered some coffee from Mystic Monk and it is WONDERFUL!!!! The service was fast and the coffee is really, really good. We have been wanting to support Monasteries and Abbeys and this is a delicious way to support this group of Carmalite Monks.  We ordered the ‘Big Monk, Little Monks’ set which came with one 12-ounce bag and two sample bags of coffee.  We have only tried our big bag, which was Sumatran, so far.  Our little bags are Mystic Monk Blend and Dark Roast Columbian.  I’m anxious to try them!!!

God Bless!

purging……

Well, I need to purge out some of the photos on my blog here.  Flickr is warning me that I’m at 175 photos and I can only have 200 to stay on their free program.  I can’t justify paying for something extra like that so I’m going to go through and delete old posts/photos and weed down some in other areas.  Maybe one day I can pay for photo storage like that, but not now and it’s definitely not one of my priorities.  We have bigger fish to fry right now. lol  I do hope to be able to spend some time on here and add links to some of my favorite blogs and websites.   Maybe sometime soon………… 🙂

God Bless!

Lots of reading is going on in my house……..I needed another bookmark.  The first one that I made for myself is quite big so I needed a smaller one that would easily fit into a paperback book.  The quote says, “There is time…for everything.”~Thomas Edison.  I had to put in my two cents worth and add, “especially books”. lol   It’s lot of fun to make these and oh-so easy!  Now I need to go grab my new book that I bought today and get to reading!

Here’s a corner bookmark that I made today for my daughter, Abby. I thought of the “this is my spot” idea sometime late last night and I almost got up to make this bookmark, because I could see the completed project so clearly in my head. lol  I tried to make it fun and use her favorite colors. It’s a surprise and a good thing to give her today because she and I went to the bookstore this afternoon and she got a new book to read. She’s just like I am……..always with her nose in a book!

God Bless!

So I am trying to watch the Jets/Redskins game that’s on right now and I’m really having a hard time with it! I keep on yelling “GO PACKERS!!!!!!!!!!!” And Brett Favre just doesn’t look like Brett Favre in white and green! Where is the green and gold? I have to keep checking, shaking my head, blinking my eyes and reminding myself that he’s no longer a Packer. Wow. It’s almost too much to comprehend! lol But, alas, I am still a Packers fan, through and through. I will follow Brett and wish him the best as a Jet and follow all of his games there. I can’t hide the fact that I’m just a football fan. I have my favorite teams, but if there is a football game on TV……..I’m watching it! So, I had better get back and watch this game. Brett’s coming back out to play and it’s time for me to start blinking my eyes and shaking my head again. Maybe by the end of the season it will have sunk in………. I don’t think so. lol

God Bless!

distraught…….

Okay, I admit it. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I even have a silly countdown for the next movie that’s coming out on my desktop from Mugglenet. So, today I finally get on-line and look at it and it went from 97 days until the movie (which it said yesterday) to 335 days today!!!! Oh my gosh!!!! I am going to flip out! I was really looking forward to this next movie this Autumn! So, alas. I am quite distraught. Just like Moaning Myrtle. boo hoo………

I’m semi-excited about the Twilight movie, but afraid to put too much hope into it. I just don’t know if it’s going to be a good movie or not. We’ll see. lol

God Bless!

I have been working on this one here and there for over a month. I started it and got stuck, so I left it out and I have been working on it little by little since then. Today, I really got on a roll and I got it finished. It NEVER takes me this long to complete a layout, but for some reason this one wanted to take it’s time, so I let it. Lots of odds and ends supplies here and just a lot of stuff! I like it and it will be put in my BOM. I am really enjoying doing these “for fun” layouts just because I want to. lol

TFL!
God Bless,
