Weekend Shots-Take 15 & 16

Hello Friends,

It's been a few days since I've been here... and I have to say I've missed it! I've missed scrapping and creating too! Ahhhh, but this weekend, this weekend I didn't pack, unpack, or paint one single thing!(Glimmer Misting doesn't count!) I did hang up a couple of pictures, but other than that.... nada!

Saturday I spent the biggest part of the day cleaning and straightening. We had our first dinner for friends here and while it took some preparing for it, it was really nice. It's not that the house was so messy, just house chores had been neglected for a couple of weeks it seems like, that included laundry. Going to the retreat last weekend took some time away from daily duties. First I had to get ready to go... oh the thought and energy that requires. Then I went!! Then, I had to rest from it! I got there Thursday afternoon, didn't go to bed until Fri., well Sat morning at about 1am. Then back up at 7:30 am on Sat., bed at 4am Sunday... not much sleep was had that is for sure! It seems as though this past week I did nothing...and that made for a nice change.

I have however taken my weekend shots. I believe I've failed to get weekend 14 up, but I can assure you... pictures have been taken!

Here is a picture from the retreat last weekend. Think this was actually taken Fri, but I am using it for my Sat one because I wanted this on here.
This baby is called the "Big Nasty"!

My Sunday shot is of a house that burnt down long ago I'm sure. I pass it on the way home when we are coming back from the Dallas, TX. area. I always wonder when I see houses like this one or ones falling down, what ever happened to the family that lived in this so many years ago. Have they all moved away? Was anyone injured? Did they farm so many years ago? Of course I never have any answers. Can you see the different colors of stones that are in the house?

This Sat pic... the first stage of the stuffing for the chicken... mushrooms and onions... oh it sure was good!

Today's picture... my new toy. Oh if Miss Firestone could see me now with a sewing machine!! I love it! It's so fun! This machine is perfect for scrapping and card making... and that's perfect for me! Cause sewing on clothes is so not my thing, will not happen!

That's about all for now. I've spent the bigger part of my day in "my" room.. trying to get over being depressed about the Rangers losing again...(shhh Barb!). I have played most of the day, packing up swap items and finishing some others. I'll get pics up of my canvas album that I made last weekend in the next few days. Things are almost back to normal here at the homestead.... why this coming week the curtains and wall decor for living room shall be arriving! Cool huh?

Ta-ta for now my friends!

Yum! I love mushrooms, and combining them with onions just makes them even better! I'm glad your dinner party went well!

That house picture is out of sight!! I LOVE it. those kind of pics set me off like they do you. I have to wonder all about them.

Rangers & Tampa Bay. I have no clue on how this is going to go. Guess we will just see who is having the best Tuesday!! LOL

I so would love to be there with you. Miss all of you so much.

I haven't scrapped. Still stuck on a LO. Oh well. Sooner or later it will move. Seems like later! LOL
