Well Good Morning Sweet Friends,
I included something today for you ladies who love
decorating like I do.
Thought I would give you a close up of the centerpc.
I got this idea from another sweet long time friend, Diane.
She is so creative in her gift giving, and knows just what
I like. She saw a decorating magazine with this idea and
bought me the magazine and the egg cups to go along with it,
and it had several really cute ideas for what you can
do with egg cups. I still had some pink carnations
leftover from when we visited our friends at the
condo, she sent them home with me. So I was
able to find 9 that still looked good, so cut
them off real short and stuck them in the egg cups
(with some water of course). Then added some
candleholders with pink candles from Yankee Candle
called fresh cut roses, I love these candles
the smell sooooooo good!!
Of course, you can use any kind of flowers
in there, and I have also put candles in them,
or butter or sauces, or candy or colored
eggs at Easter! I am sure you can think of
other neat ideas. I like it because it is simple
yet pretty, and also low so it doesn't impede
conversation. Nice to be able to see who you
are talking to I think!! ha
If you have any other ideas for egg cups
let me know, I would love to hear them.
Just came back from the bank, and My Heavens, this has been a
frustrating day so far and it is only 10:52.
I am trying my best to keep a good attitude but stuff
just keeps going wrong by the minute! ha
Oh how the enemy of our soul loves to try and ruin
our joy. First thing this morning I noticed our
washing machine did not drain and has last nights
tablecloth and napkins still in it, then Scott called
and wanted us to fax something to him at work,
he has a fax, we don't, so we don't know how
to use it really, and he has a long cord cause
our phone hookup is across the hall.
We tried about 10 times and it would not work,
then I noticed a business card on his desk
to his company and it was a different fax #
so I was about to do that when he called
so I tried it again and it took about 5 more
tries. I have unconnected and reconnected
the fax machine from the telephone lines
about 4 times now) anyway, it finally, I hope went
but we thought it had gone once before so we will
see if they got it.
Then I just closed our old acct. and put stop pays on 2 checks
we have been expecting to go thru but never did, and that is
because we discovered on Sat. thru checking our visa acct.
(it was on lock down) someone has been tampering with our
Visa Acct. and that is one of the bills that never came
thru, so we think now that someone actually took our bills out of
our mailbox. Funny thing is I never mail bills that way anymore,
I take them to the post office or to a large mailbox
near our house, cause I have read not to do that.
I think it was when Jimmys car was having problems so
he had to drive mine, so I had no car to drive, and the
bills needed to go out, so I just put them in the box.
At least that is what we think happened. I wish I
knew for sure cause then I could file a police report.
Not that I want that hassle, but since we don't know
what other surprises we might get you wonder!!
Right after they put the stop pay on the checks,
we transferred the $$ out of that acct. to our new
acct. and closed it. Well,,,,,,, neither of us thought
about the fact that Jimmy gets paid on Thurs.
by direct pay and if the acct. is closed now what???
Called the bank back and she said she couldn't
be sure it would be open still cause it takes
about 48 hrs. or so. She suggested I go up
and deposit a very small amt. of money and
hopefully that will keep them from closing it.
She said if it was already closed the teller
would say so, thankfully, they took it
with no problems, so hope she is right or
we will have another ordeal with his
paycheck on Thursday, cause they will send
it back to the company and they will cut
him a check or something like that.
It will be delayed at any rate unless the
acct. stays open, So we will see, I am
sure the Lord will take care of it for us.
I am laughing my head off, I had to go let the dog
out and there was a huge and I mean huge
coachroach in the doorway and he ran under
the threshold of the door and unfortunately
it was on the inside of the door not outside.
So sprayed some Bug Stop down in the
cracks, then Joey (the dog) started throwing
up, not once, not twice, but 3 times!!
So as I am cleaning up after Joey I see the
huge coachroach on the carpeting in the
dining room, so he made it aways into the
house, but I must have gotten him with the
bug stop cause he was not moving to fast,
so I threw him in the bag with all the other
trash, so maybe he will die happy!!
Oh My what a post!! Just want you to know
you are not the only one who has crazy days.
Some days you wonder why you even got
out of bed. Well, I am off to DeeAnna's
we are going to attempt to hang her new
wall decor!! Told her I was afraid I might
bash a wall in or something! ha
I take that back, that is a negative confession!! ha
This day is getting more ridiculous and more
funny by the minute. I might as well leave
cause I definitely am not gonna accomplish
much here today. Let's hope it is better
Well, hope your day is going much better than mine!!
Thanks for coming by,
hope I didn't depress you too much!! ha
Hugs and Blessings,
