I want a cookie

A family story where my mom was harassed by a nursing home patient jumping up screaming, "I want a cookie in a cup-ie, cup-ie, cup-ie."

So that makes this video, where Amie brings me her cookie in her favorite cup.... so cute.

I'm Crazy... what's new?

When I die, I want a cool memorial/funeral. If any of you play a hymn... I will personally come back and beat you!

Wear red! Have fun! Play great music or even hire a band! I know this music video is "older" but it looks cool.

Building a need for a quilting frame

I now regret that my mom gave away my great grandma's quilting frame. While I could not have used it over the last 9 years... I could sure use it now! Here are 2 queen sized and the blocks for 1 full sized quilt.
Here is a "Summer Tea Party" sampler that could make 1 king or 2 twins.The colors are not true in the picture... due to lighting inadequacies.

So if ANYONE has a quilting frame that I can use for the winter... I would greatly appreciate it!

Not feeling well

I have been sick since last Wednesday. I hope that today is the last day.

I am supposed to just leave this alone and let it speak for itself... but since I don't have any non-christians reading my blog... I will critique.

I think this is a good idea and has great potential. There are two pictures that make me pause... the girl "in sin" is in black and white (good imagery) and has brown or black hair. The woman free from sin is tan and blond... While imagery has it's place, the stereotypes of blonds being happier is used way too often. Even though I have lived my life as a blond... recently with more and more boxes of assistance, I feel for the dark haired and dark skinned people who are always portrayed as evil or sinful... YOU NEVER see a natural blond in this category. If you do see a blond in the "evil" category, she is platinum, unnatural blond.

I think we can dump the PC crap and address this trend in advertising and media to help solve the United States racial tensions.

Is this a real shock?

You are most like:


You are bold with a dark side. You make clear lines wherever you go, though you color outside of the lines. Many people may just see the surface of you and think you are merely plain, but you have a lot of depth to you as well.

Take this quiz: Which Crayola Box of 8 Color Are You?

Um... BRR!

So I may have mentioned I was tired of the heat and wanted snow... Now I wake up at 4:45 AM FREEZING and get up and start a fire in the wood stove in AUGUST! I said I wanted snow... so it is all my fault.

Sleepy.. and tired of arguing with small children.... mostly about things that do not exist!

From this point on, I refuse to debate about cartoon ANYTHING, Magic Powers, mystical creatures behavioral habits, how many seconds are in 20 minutes, or anything involving imaginary friends. From now on, I will smile and nod and hum a happy tune in my head!
