How has your Wednesday been? It has been a wacky Wednesday here in the life of a High School!
I'm trying to escape the reality of working in a High School office, by blog reading! =)
I'm so excited about this new McLinky with recipes! I can not tell you that I have tried this recipe and it's delicious, but boy it sure does sound delicious! And what a wonderful blog Bethy has with the most adorable son(s)!!!!
Honey Roasted Red Potatoes
2 pounds red potatoes (quatered)
2 Vidala onions, sliced
1/4 cup melted butter
2.5 tablespoons honey
2.5 teaspoons dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste
(makes 10 servings)
Preheat oven to 375
Spray baking dish with nonstick spray
Place potatoes in a single layer and top with onions
In a small bowl, mix butter, honey, mustard, salt and pepper.
Pour over potatoes and onions
Bake for 35m or until tender
Mix potatoes halfway through cooking time
For quicker potatoes, microwave the potatoes first and crisp them in the oven
I happened to come across this blog and post somehow, can't remember how for sure. Regardless, I thought this sounded so fun!!! I signed up for it! Not that we all need another thing to do at this busy time of year, but this one sounded so fun!
How is everybody doing? Guess what, guess what, guess what? I got my computer back yesterday! Yipeee! Only thing is, I couldn't open my email, I'll have to have my hubby work on it today.
Ok, listen, I just had this really, really long paragraph typed about my day yesterday, and why it was an awesome day, but I reread it, and it sounded soooo bluch, so bragg-y - I couldn't stand it - it was like those Christmas letters you hate to read. Oh my goodness, I was gagging myself! Let me just say that yesterday was an AWESOME day!
Let's play a game - 'Would you Rather?'
I'll start . . . . . Would you rather have a significant other that is rich and gave you everything but didnt really love you.
Or have a significant other that has decent amount of money but can rarely buy you stuff but is truly in love with you?
Let's hear yours!
I just have to share this with you - I just love this song! I'm not sure if it's the song, I'm not sure if it's Jon! I just LOVE Bon Jovi! I can NOT wait for them to start touring again, I am GOING to go see them - I just HAVE to!
I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but it has been dreary, gray and rainy here for the past two days. We may or may not get quite a bit of snow. They don't know which way the front is going to move. I just know I do NOT want what Denver is getting. Denver is only 3 1/2 hours to the West of us. My daughter in college is a little West and North of us, her classes were cancelled today because of all the snow.
Guess what? Guess what? Guess what? The sweetest gal, Brooke, is featuring my shop along with others on her ☺AWESOME☺ website, Cute Handmade! It is such a thrill to see your work featured on somebody's site!!! Wow, Brooke, you made my day! Please be sure to go check out Brooke's site and comment on one of her featured artists to be automatically entered in her contest to win a prize! ♥ It can't get more simple than that, can it?
If you happen to like any of the artists she has featured, please take a millisecond to press the 'This is cute' button at the bottom of their feature. ☺
I really need to get busy this weekend and get a lot more items listed in my Etsy store. Does anybody have any items they would like to suggest that I make? I would love to hear your ideas!
Here's your weird, random fact of the day; An albatross can sleep while it flies. It apparently dozes while cruising at 25 mph. Who woulda' thunk?
It's almost Halloween, can you believe it??? My favorite thing about Halloween? I'll tell ya! Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
You know, I want to make this blog, an awesome one, I don't want to bore you anymore to death - and I want to have lots and lots of readers! I'm going to concentrate on this from here on out - please bear with me!
Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday!As I mentioned last night, my shop was featured last night as one of the Sneak Attacks! I was so tickled pink and actually got three sales from it, my first three sales!!Today, Sandi of Handmade by Sandi featured me on her blog! What a treat! I'm becoming spoiled very quickly! Sandi does wonderful work, I included a picture of one of my favorite items that she has listed.
I was just reading through the Etsy forums just a little while ago, and saw a post that touched my heart♥.
Please don't feel as if I'm trying to push something on you, I'm not, if you are not interested, please do not feel the need to go to this shop and buy something. I have not bought from this seller before (until about 15 minutes ago), I do not know her, and have not previously seen her shop before. However, after reading her post, I went to her shop and bought myself candles with her great sale going!
I hope it's ok that I post part of her story, but she is having a great sale of buy 2 of anything in her shop, receive the 3rd of equal or lesser value for free. Kim, has three sons, and her husband is currently in the hospital suffering from cancer, one thing after another has hit this poor family, and now her brakes went out in her car. She is hoping her sale boosts some of her Etsy sales.
I can just feel that it's going to be a Super Saturday, isn't it?
Remember how I told you my hubby, son and I just watched 'Land of the Lost' movie the other night? It was one of those 'stupid funny' movies. How many of you remember watching the original on tv? I loved that show! Look at this interesting bit of trivia I found regarding the show (don't ask how I came about this, I really have no idea?!);
American televangelist Jim Bakker played a Sleestak on one episode of the classic children's television show "Land of the Lost."
Who woulda thunk?????
Are any of you Husker fans? =) The Huskers will be playing in just about two and half hours! GO BIG RED!
I guess the fact that 'should' be cleaning and not sitting here having fun on the computer is what makes this so cute to me. If only I could be as excited about an object used for housecleaning! I notice this was posted three years ago, I wonder if he still has such a love for vacuums?
I know that's not the best picture - but it was dark when I came to work, and I took the picture with my phone, but good golly, what a beautiful, messy winter wonderland it was this morning! It was just coming down, wet, wet, heavy snow!!!!
I got three new listings up last night on Etsy if you would like to take a look!
Ok, ok, I know you are wondering what the heck the other part of my title is. Have I kept you in suspense long enough? Let's just talk about zits for a moment.
Definition of Zit; pimple: a small inflamed elevation of the skin; a pustule or papule; common symptom in acne
You know what brings all this on?? I have a big zit - yet again, about half way between my nose and my cheek! I always get zits there, and I can't take it anymore! I'm 41 - almost 42 years old, I pluck gray hairs at night, and I still have to deal with zits! It' just ridiculousness I tell you!
Ok, I'm sorry, I'll get off my soapbox for the day!
I hope you will still be my friend, and I'll close for now!
To take your mind off of my subject, how about this - we watched Land of the Lost (movie) the other night, and I can not get this song out of my head. It was in the movie. Does it bring back some memories?! =)
Can you believe it's Wednesday already? I sure can not - especially since I worked a few hours Monday and have been home since! I am feeling soooo weird about being home today - I feel fine today, but had a fever most of the day yesterday, so I was told I could not return. Not until I have been fever free for 24 hours. Those are the rules we are having to follow right now at the High School because so many have been out ill.
I have listed a few more items on Etsy, and hope to list many more soon! Let's just hope I get a sale somewhere along the line! Hahahaha!!!!
Anyway, my friend Darla posted this on her Blog, and I have to post it here, too. It is absolutely hilarious!
Hello everyone! Well, here I sit - sent home from work with a fever. I still have it, but can't sleep anymore, and don't feel horrible. But not good enough to do any housework! Ha!
I would like to clay, but yet I would feel guilty sitting here claying when I could have been at work, you know what I mean?
I'm trying to umpfh myself up enough to list Ginger the Witch. I just have such a heck of a time with pricing! It's tough. But then, maybe, the more I list, the more exposure there will be? Heck, I don't know.
Well, I suppose I shall go, I took a better picture of Ginger in the sunlight. Please, tell me, I'd love to hear your thoughts, what would you do to a piece like this to make it better???? I would love to hear your suggestions! I have not baked her yet! It's not too late!
Have a wonderful evening and here is to Healthiness for you All!
Wulp, I did it girls, I bit the bullet!!! I put a listing up on Etsy. Jeesh, I have spent this whole day on the computer, and really need to stop! I was going to clay today, but instead of that, I have been on the computer!
I have the HARDEST time with pricing, and I know I hate shipping, so we'll have to see how far this venture goes! Hahahaaa! I know you have already seen ♥Wednesday the Witch♥ before, but I would love to hear your feedback on the listing! Please be honest, let me know what I should and should not do!
Today I woke up, got my cup of coffee so excited to catch up on blogs and see what everyone was doing today. What a wonderfully awesome surprise to find that I had been given an award. Not just any award but an award of friendship, what could be more special than that?
Darla and I met years ago, I'm not quite sure how many years ago it has been, but we met through an online painting group, clicked immediately and have been emailing eachother ever since. Darla has always been an inspiration to me, as well as an awesome cheerleader. I told her I'm not the best with words, I'm not as eloquent as she is with them, but I just hope she knows that it means so much to me to receive this award from her! Thank you, Darla, from the bottom of my ♥! Please visit Darla's blog, she is an amazing woman, you just may make a new friend today!
This wonderful Deborah Award is about friendship and it states: "Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest, but who came and never left your side"
I would like to pass this award along to two friends as well! It's amazing how you 'meet' somebody online, and they will forever have a place in your heart. I can not express how much their friendships mean to me! ♥
Sometimes, do you ever just sit and think about how amazing women are? I mean seriously! I'm not saying that guys don't have it rough sometimes, and don't work hard, yadda, yadda, yadda. My husband, God Bless Him, works sooo very hard, but when he comes home, he comes home, he chills.
Here is my day so far, got off work, ran to grocery store, came home, put groceries away, started dinner and laundry, unloaded dishwasher, reloaded dishwasher, picked up the house a bit (kids were out of school today, but all in all, the house looked good for them being home all day). Where was I? Oh yes, have done two loads of laundry, finished cooking dinner, and ironed six shirts.
Can I clay now? That's all I wanna do tonight is clay!!!!
Hello girls!!!Happy Hump Day! Wuuuhuuu, we are half way through the week!!!!! I got to clay last night, I had been inspired (Thanks Shelly!), and really felt like doing it.So, anyway, I made this little witch and her ghost friends up.Have a great day!♥ Lori
Guess what we woke up to today on this Saturday??? Sixteen, yes, that is correct, I said SIXTEEN inches of snow!!!!! OMG! What in the world????? Needless to say, I'm having a nice lazy day at home. My oldest daughter Morgan, and her boyfriend came home last night, so I'll be doing a lot of cooking for them this weekend, which is perfectly alright with me!!!!
I finally got my pictures uploaded of some claying I've been doing. You know, isn't it funny how when you first do something, for the first couple of days maybe, even, after you make something, you like it, and then the more time that passes, the less you like what you make? That's how I am anyway. I was so tickled with all these, until they sat here for so long, now I'm not liking them so much! I was planning on selling them on the local teacher's bulletin board. The last pictures are of lapel pins.
I feel it is my duty, I feel it is a must, that I must give you this tip of the day! I must give you a warning!
*BEEP*BEEP*BEEP* Please stay tuned for the following warning;
Do not under any circumstances buy Wal Mart brand Airborne! It could be hazardous to your health!
I swear to you this stuff tastes like fish food! What you say? You wonder how I know what fish food tastes like? I don't, but if I were to taste it, I can most certainly guess that it would taste just like this stuff! Oh my goodness, it sends chills through my body when I drink it, it gives me the heebie jeebies, I want to puke when I drink it! And then aftewards, the burps, oh the horrible burps!
Guess how my Monday morning started off?! I plugged my straightener in, thought it was making funny noises, I pulled the first pass through my first swath of hair - *spark, crackle spark*!
I figured it was not worth starting my hair on fire to have it straightened. So that is how my day started!
How about your Monday? I am convinced, though, that it will go better the rest of the day! ☺
Listen to this quote, I love it, I think I may put it on my emails;
It is very easy to be positive and pleasant when things are all going our way. The real test comes when we incur difficulties and frustrations. This is when one's true character is revealed. -anonymous
I want to be home claying soooo desperately right now! Oh well, hopefully I can get some done tonight!
What a great Sunday - other than the fact that I can't open my Outlook Express and get to my emails.
Anyway, it's a cloudy, rainy, chilly day. I have beef and noodles cooking, I have gotten a little claying done, lots of laundry done (just need to put it away), made some salsa with the last of the garden tomatoes friends gave me. I'm getting ready to take pictures of the claying I did, so I can sell it to the teachers.
I just wanted to tell you something - my dishes had not been coming clean lately, I could not figure out what was wrong, I wasn't out of jet dry, but it wasn't completely full, so I thought maybe that was it, but it wasn't! Guess what I just figured out as I was unloading the dishwasher? I had bought the Wal Mart brand of those dishwasher tablets, those squishy looking ones, figuring they were just as good as Cascade - well, I'm here to tell ya - they are not!!! Cascade works soo much better, I just ran this last load with Cascade and they are as clean as a whistle!
Hahahaaa! Since you are my two followers, why not address this to you??
This picture here is of a lake right outside of Breckenridge, isn't it beautiful?? I've probably already shown you this, but gosh dang, can you believe it? The reflection in the water is awesome!
Today is Sunday!!! I love Sunday's, but they can also be sad, it means our wonderful weekend is over!! It is 35 degrees right now, and only suppose to get to 46 and rain all day. I think today will be a perfect day to make beef and noodles - don't you think girls? Make beef and noodles, and clay, clay, clay! I should clean, but instead, I think I shall clay and do laundry. That is, of course, after I go to Wal Mart - yuck! I don't feel like going, I sure wish I would have last night, but I didn't, and I'm going to have to - we are out of everything in this house!
I hope you both have a most spendid day! I'll go check out both of your blogs now!
Hello! Is anybody out there? I just thought I would give this a try and see how it goes! Today is a beautiful Fall Saturday! (That's why the font is orange, to symbolize Fall!) The sun is shining, the wind is not blowing and the temperature is perfect! I got to spend some nice mother - daughter time with Whitney today, and now it's just killing time while doing laundry and waiting to get ready for Confirmation. Whitney makes her Confirmation today.
I really want to clay today, but don't feel like I can start any of it right now.
I really don't have anything to say, but I posted a picture from my most AMAZING weekend last weekend, maybe at least one person will see it?! This particular picture was in Aspen!
Tah tah for now - or forever? I guess we'll see? ♥
