Good morning! A lovely day is dawning out there and I'm about to go out to snip a few more flowers for the garden show. I'm not doing arrangements - no time - but will enter some individual blooms. We have to be there by 7:30 to "place" them for judging at nine.

After setting up, I'll come home to do all the stuff I should have done yesterday: Church bulletin, four dozen devilled eggs for a 50th Anniversary party this afternoon and lemon squares of some sort for tomorrow's christening party. I've already done and packed up the cookies for today's garden show and munched a few, I'm afraid!

Hope your Saturday is stunning. See y'all later.

Good morning all! Much to my dismay my son has gotten so used to his school schedule that he was up bright and early at 6 this morning. Blah! Not more sleeping in for mommy this year. We have friends in from out of town, so we will be entertaining all weekend. I want to stay on plan, but we will be doing lots of going out to eat as we will be out and about doing things. I survived yesterday's resturant with flying colors, got the grilled chicken salad, hold the croutons. I wasn't sure on dressing so I brough my own, which probably certifies me a complete dork, but I really don't want to screw up. I can start phase two on Sunday, but I am nervous about it. I have just gotten used to *this* way of eating, don't want to screw it up ya know?
Anyhoo, have a great weekend everyone!!!!!

Ruth- have a great time at the garden show!!!

Morning Ruth!! Have a great time at the garden show!! Send pictures!

I'm sporting a bit of a headache this morning (Rum punch induced along with very high humidity) But had a great time last night partying at a local event held each year called "Hot August Night". All of downtown stays open and an artist is in each establishment along with a wine tasting. I got a great print by a N.O. artist whose work I really like. (called Post Katrina Blues) I also bought a crystal anklet with a dangling fleur de lis. Today, I'm off to a school workshop all day , it is STORMING outside and not too happy about it at all. Come on, Sunday!

Hey Autumn! we were posting at the same time! Oh, I remember those "kid saturday" mornings too well! By the time my kids were old enough to get up on their own on Saturday, I could not sleep past 5 anymore. (I could, but for some reason I didn't!) bummer!

Oh, I forgot my really good news. My oldest son is graduating from LSU in December. He had an internship with a large construction company this summer. He did his end of the internship "presentation" last week. After that he was offered a part time job with the company till he graduates and after that he was offered a full time job. He was the only one out of all the interns to be offered that. He will be making TWICE what I do when he starts full time. I am really proud of him. He has dyslexia and school was really a struggle (oh, those homework nights when he was little were like pulling teeth) He has a very strong work ethic and I just KNEW if we got him out of school he would be successful. All those miserable nights of struggling are now going to pay off big time. I've decided he'll be the one to take care of me when I am old. Pay-back are h*ll, right???

Good morning! It's looking like a beauty of a day with nothing planned except for learning how to put up ceramic tile in the kitchen. I'm still basking in the after-glow of spending the afternoon with Nessa and Schmoodle yesterday, what a nice time we had! Now that we've "broken the ice", I hope we can manage to get together more often.

I'm admiring your avatar, Ruth, but I can't tell whether it's a dahlia or a zinnia? Spending the morning at the garden show sounds like the type thing I would enjoy. Your mention of lemon bars are stirring up yearnings for my SBD friendly Lemonade Pie, I think I'll make one for tomorrow's dessert. Have a pleasant Saturday!

Hey Beachers!

Ruth: Have a great day at Flower Show, I second Femmes request...post pix!

AutumnRose: I felt same way...nervous starting phase 2. Take it slow.

Femmecreole: "Hot August Night sounds like fun!! You earned your headache! Lol!

Cottage: Sounds like you guys had fun! Hearing you talk of putting up ceramic tiling, makes me want to do a mosaic somewhere in my house

I've had a stressed few days... a lot of emotional stuff around a friend who needs help... psychiatric that is. It's hard. I'm fixing dinner tonight for her and a nurse friend of mine.... so I'm emotionally drained... I'm making a tofu stirfry, lentils and brown rice for dinner. Have a great day everyone!

Good morning chicks!

Ruth - My dear, if you're going to tell us you ate some cookies, at least you can tell us how good they were so we may live vicariously through you!! Yummm......

Autumn - my DS1 starts kindergarten in 2 weeks, not that I can sleep in now!! Good job on the dinner last night!!

Cat - I clicked the link... I love the colors and his style...very cool!

Ruth - glad you enjoyed yourself yesterday! I think I'm a little too far away to join you sometime (state college, PA)

Me - so far (knock on wood) a quiet night on call. Work's packed today, and it's been a Looonnnnnngggg couple days. I did get a 3.5 mi walk/jog on my lunch break yesterday...but exhausted last night! I can't wait til the boss comes back... Hope she's proud of me!

I've been doing lots of shopping on sierratradingpost.com (been there??!! awesome!! Those "unnamed" khakis are LLBean....for $10!!!) since the weight loss! What a hoot to shop for smaller sizes! This morning, I'm on Kohl's before the rest of the house wakes up and I go to work...

Have a lovely weekend!

Indiagal simulpost - good luck with the friend...you're right, that's so exhausting.

HI Nessa!

Twynn, I bet you look awesome in your new clothes!

Indi - While your helping your friend remember to take some deep breaths! So sorry your dealing with this!

Enjoy a good rest Cottage.

Femme, having to work today sucks! Sorry they scheduled it on saturdays!

A busy day Ruth, but I hope you enjoy it as you go!'

I have my sister coming to go hiking one or more of those beautiful gully's today. I have to call her to confirm. She likes to say yes the night before and then back out the day after! LOL, lucky for her she's amy baby sister! Spoiled by mom (the youngest of 13).

Ds is being... um, impossible. I had a "feeling" that he was in trouble, so tried contacting him, went to a few of his friends house looking for him. By the time I got home that night he left a message "dont try contacting me again." Well, I heard his voice and knew he was alright physically, so I took his message loud and clear. When he comes for his computer I will be taking my key to the house. When he decides he knows he's wrong and comes back then I'll welcome him with open arms. Why can't people realize their mother's are not trying to control, but really are concerned. (and for what it's worth, I didn't say anything to tell him what to do, just asked questions to get him to think!)

Good morning chicks and rooster!
Cat, how exciting for DS (and for you)! Why do you have to work on Saturday?
Ruth, enjoy the flowers.
Loriann, glad you were able to find out your DS is okay. I guess you've just gotta let him work through this?
lc, have fun camping and nessa, have fun visiting! Hope Brian has a great time at the races after what we put him through yesterday.
Twynn, I haven't been to sierratradingpost. But I will definietly be checking it out! I love to do all my shopping on the internet, the problem lately is I have no idea what size to order!
Have a nice dinner indi!
Have fun with the tiles cottage. DH does not like to do tiles, he did our bathroom and if you look very closely, they are all crooked! It was great to meet you!
Autumn, if you are bringing your own dressing, you are going to do just fine. Don't fear Ph2! sorry about your early morning.

Well, as soon as I'm ready, I'm off to Aldi's. If I see any fun-looking yard sales, I plan to stop. Kids are at grandma's until lunchtime. I plan to get my yard sprayed (finally), and if it's hot enough, to the pool! Tonight we'll have screen on the green.

Okay, the scale said 179 this morning, but I am not ready to believe it yet. Let's just see if it sticks.

Good Morning! Odd start to the weekend for me, my usual routine on saturdays is I am up waaaay before the rest of the house and it is "my" time. Up at 6 not too bad for me anymore, almost slept in. But the rest of the house was up by 7, DD had volleyball practice and is gone now, and DH is wii fitting it. This is gonna throw my whole weekend off LOL!

Not much on tap anyway, the usual laundry and cleaning. With DS back at campus I have some rearranging to do in the house.

Cottage gosh now you have me thinking about painting, oh DH would hang me for sure!

Loriann its amazing how years later we understand what we put our parents through. Good Luck!

Zeff I know your out there somewhere, I saw the other day where you said you were reading the Stephanie Meyers series, I am on book 2 after my DS turned me on to them, afraid it is going to take me much longer to read them but I am enjoying it!

Going to take me just as long to type this post, we got a new computer a couple of weeks ago, not sure what it is about this keyboard but I can't type worth a crap on it!

Alright off for now, Have a great weekend!

It is a 4 day reading workshop. Teachers went to it at the beginning of the summer. Those of us recently hired or those that missed the first one have to go the next 3 Saturdays to make it up. I did the first one a couple of days before school started. I'd rather eat dirt and have a root canal.

Good morning chatty Chicks

Ruth - Have a fun day Mmmm, lemon squares. Wonder if we could come up with a legal version...

Cat - Hope the workshop flies by and they let you out early! Wow, congrats to your son and his Mom

Cottage, Nessa, & Schmoodle - add me to the jealous crowd! Sounds like fun.

Indigal - Hope you are taking a little time to keep your batteries charged too. How do you cook your lentils? I love lentils and am always looking for new ideas.

Twynn - Hey, I shop there! They definitely have some good sales. Shopping for smaller sizes can get expensive after awhile. I overbought at 12 and 10 because I never thought I'd be any smaller than either of those. Oops. Ah well, the thrift store loves me and I've picked up as much as I could there so it helps take the edge off.

LC - have fun camping!

LoriAnn - Sounds like you've got the right approach to parenting. It's soooo hard to watch them bang their heads against a wall. Hope the hike is lots of fun. Will there be any pictures?

AutumnRose & Pacer

Another busy vacation day here We leave for Maine camping tomorrow so need to get stuff done here. I've got 6 trays of fruit leather ready to package up now, then on to the next project. I did remember that we can get any groceries we need in the area we will be in so don't need to go overboard worrying about food. With our food restrictions it can be challenging but Southern Maine is very compatible with our eating habits.

I'm an every day scale user but some days I really understand why we aren't supposed to do that. I've gone up and down 2.5 lbs this week - could make a person crazy if I took it too seriously. Luckily, I don't - just use it to make sure things don't go too far out of whack.

Have a good day everyone!

Quickie while I wait for the darned eggs to finish cooking.

Cottage, it IS a zinnia. (Um....there is a title under the picture! )

For those of you who live vicariously, the cookies were double chocolate chunk and definitely food porn! I did NOT get on the frassing scale this morning.

I'll try to remember to take my camera back to the show this afternoon. There were some gorgeous flower arrangements there including some very tiny ones!

Time to get chopping chives and stuff for the darned eggs! Why couldn't I have become famous for something less fiddly - like double chocolate cookies?

Yes, I'm trusting God, I'm reminded of the prodigal son!

My sister called to postpone said hike till next week... hahahaha, did I call it or what?

OK, so now I'm here looking at dogs for adoption. I love my girl, and believe she's enough, but my sis got me looking this morning. Upon searching I found they are in dire need of foster homes. So, I filled in my application to become a foster home for labs. Part of me is scared, never know what you get into... they can do everything from bite to bring in fleas and what not. Well, can't live life by the "what if's>" and these dogs do need a place to stay, and a home is much better than a cage in a shelter! We'll see if I get approved for it. Besides, this way I might just find myself another decent pet to love and adopt!
