Hello all,
It's been a long time since I've been on my blog as you can see. Just thought I would catch you up since the wedding.

I've become a Close To My Heart Consultant, if you need anything, please vist my website, if you would like to see if I have some instructions on how to make something, shoot me a note at Please do not send me an order thru email, I do not keep them, they get sent to my straight to my spam folder. I'm having one Gathering a month so far and am also teaching a card class the second Tuesday of each month. If you live in PA email me to see if you are close enough to come to a class or would like a kit mailed to you.

Hope you Christmas was good, ours was quiet, celebrated with two of our kids the Saturday before Christmas. It was a great day, Jason, Michelle, Jenn, Pete, Donnie and I met at Jason's had dinner exchanged gifts and played Texas Hold em till midnight (my mom would have been so proud), she loved to play poker. Justin and Danielle didn't come over again this year. Maybe next year.

I just found out about three weeks ago I am having seizures and the doctor put me on medicine and I am not allowed to drive. Donnie, a couple friends and I were going to Friday's for supper, I was driving. I took the turn to head into their parking lot and blacked out, I ran over the median, which is wider than my car is long before I heard Donnie yelling at me. Needless to say I didn't drive home and haven't driven since then, I don't think I could handle it if I ran someone over with my car. So far the medicine seems to be helping, the doctor only increased it once, I hope it keeps working and I can start driving again.

We put a wood burning stove in this fall and it really keeps the downstairs warm, without it going it see,s pretty chilly down here. Hopeing it saves us a good bit on our electric bill, we are total electric and the winter just kills us. We'll know soon.

Hope you have a wonderful week!!

Summer's End

Hope everyone had a good weekend. We are getting ready for Jennifer's wedding, All is going well so far. We are all excited and can't wait to see Jenn in her dress and her dad giving her away.

We had her bridal shower and it was soooo much fun, we played a game where you made a veil on another person. We split into two groups, Dora's group made a veil on Dora and my group made a veil on Jim (one of the two men at the shower). OMG it was hystrical. What do you think? Isn't this picture great? I think Jim makes a lovely bride.

See ya all after the wedding.

Big Picture Classes


I just signed up to take some classes at Big Picture Classes, I can't wait to see what great new things I can learn. Some classes are free and other have a fee, you get discounts from some on line stores, get freebies and learn lotts. They have a great philosophy!! Check them out maybe you'll join too, just click above and you'll be redircted to their free classes web page.

Well, the wedding is getting closer and we are working hard to make the day great! Dora and I are having a bridal shower for Jenn, it will be soo much fun for all. Trying to get the best prices for air fare, room and rental car is a challenge for sure, Donnie is working hard to get the best price he can. I have been  buying everything related to Hydrangea's I can get, not easy to do, I was surprised and how hard it is to find stuff and the cost, they are a very expensive flower.

Jason is settled in his new home and Jack has adjusted very well, they both seem very happy. I'm glad although I do miss both of them. It seems funny with only 3 dogs in the house since Jack moved with Jason, it's easier to get around though, Jack is hugh and knocks me out of the way with out meaning to.

Justin and Danielle are now living in Philadelphia and are glad to be back close to Danielle's family.

I'm glad spring is finally here, our back yard is just beautiful with the Tulips blooming and the running water from the ponds. Donnie noticed today that we have a few hundred Tadpole and we should get a few thousand more. It is so neat to watch them grow and become little frogs, most of them get eaten by the fish. The last couple of years we didn't get any that grew to adulthood, there was a snake in the backyard who was eating them and a few fish too. He reared back to strike at Donnie and that was the last thing he did. Now I need to stop the Chippy from eating my Tulip bulbs, I like the Chippy but he has to go.

Well I think I've gabbed enough tonight. Have a wonderful spring!!!
