I love the rain. I love waking up to it, and hearing it smack into my windows. Rain makes me feel all cozy because, as a stay at home mom, that means that I can wrap up in a warm sweater, then build a fire in the wood stove right before my family comes home from their day. Rain also means that there will be a big pot of hot simmering soup for dinner. Tonight's dinner will be homemade potato soup. Nummy. Bring on the RAIN!

On Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 from 1-5pm, you are invited to come to my house and sew. You can bring either something to finish, something new to create, or just come to visit and enjoy your friends. I will provide the pop and tables to work on. Please bring your machine, and an extension cord. Leave a comment if you need directions or my phone number and I will get it for you. It will be a lot of fun.

Mid Term test already

Just a quick post about midterms. They are tomorrow already. I feel that I just started school and now I am half way done. Good grief...where does the time go. ( My keyboard is all messed up and will not allow me to use a question mark, quote marks and it will make various Portuguese markings.) Any idea on how to fix my keyboard...

I went to college for this!!!

This is a picture of what I did in my college class for tonight. I am taking a Children and Art class, so tonight we got to finger paint. We "painted" with all sorts of gooey gross stuff...shaving cream, flour/water, corn starch/water, liquid starch, chocolate was fun... but it was a pain in the rear to clean up.

Getting rid of JUNK!

Do you ever get in one of "those" moods? Well, this weekend, found me in just that state of mind. I managed to start going through the junk that has accumulated in our room. These are the first four boxes of books, clothes, old stuff, purses, etc. that are headed for the Deseret Industries. I have a lot more to go, but it certainly made a nice difference in my corner.'s for more days where I can de clutter.
