Saturday November 1

Good Morning!
Here it is the 1st day of November already.
We had fun doing the trunk or treat at our church last night. You couldn't have asked for nicer weather! It's not been so nice on Halloween that I remember since my children were very young. After the trunk or treat we went to the church basement for a little eating and socializing. We had sloppy joes, chips and cheese dip, little smokies, and all kinds of cakes and such. After coming home and seeing that there were still literally 100's of kids still in our own neighborhood we walked around with the kids, not getting home until after 9 pm.

Today we will be going to the Baptist church where the kids go to Awanas. They are having a clothing drive. We donated 4 bags of clothing ourselves, but will still go look to see if there are any that we need.

I didn't get a post done on gather other than my morning post, and then I put in a video. I have plenty of photos from last night to get in to photo essays soon as well as do my weekly mail call post after the mail comes today.

I will share the other book review lens that I built. This one is on the book Superdove. I was fortunate to get it through gather to read and review. It's the only book this author has published so far and it's all about pigeons. Really an interesting book. I hope you will take a look. Superdove Book Review

Until tomorrow, have the best day that you can :)

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!
We got Allen off to school in his costume. I sent my camera with my daughter to get photos of him and his classroom. Now I wait for her to come back so I can see just what she gets.
We will have trunk or treat at our church this evening from 6-7:30 then afterwards go to the basement for games and fun for all. I look forward to the family time.
Jasmine, however, has her idea of what she wants to be, but there is no money to buy what she needs for make up and such. I feel bad but hopefully she can work on something today.

I got busy yesterday on here for sure. I went ahead and did decide to list the crafts I've been making in my blujay store. I got 6 items listed and will list as I get things done from now on. I also got the last 2 listings done on homeschoolbuy as well.

I got my latest book in from gather to read and review. It's called The Vision Board and so far is excellent and I feel it will really help me with my life and my goals. I also did post a little photo essay of the jack o' lantern that Heather and her bf carved. Jack O' Lantern by Heather and Adam

I also built 2 more lenses on squidoo!! They are both book reviews. The first is on the children's book Crash! As I researched to build the lens I was impressed by the other books she has written and now want to read them as well. I hope you will take a peek and enjoy the review and other information. Crash! Book Review

Until tomorrow, I wish you a safe and Happy Halloween.

Thursday October 30

Good Morning!
Yesterday the weather was so nice and it's supposed to stay sunny and in the 70's through Sunday. I sure hope it does, at least through tomorrow evening. We are doing truck or treat at my church so I don't want to freeze out there passing out candy like I did last year LOL

Today is Thursday. I am so so so so so thankful for another day off work! Heather will have her math tutoring this afternoon and my mom her doctor appointment, but that should be it.
I got 5 out of my 7 listings done on homeschoolbuy last night, so I will get the last 2 in today.

I sat and crocheted on dish scrubbies and washclothes while I worked on here yesterday. I have an online friend who want me to mail her some of my crafts that she can sell where she works for me. I am undecided on it. What happens to the stuff she can't sell? Plus I have to think of the cost to mail it to her. I'm thinking maybe I should just list them on blujay and call it good. I finally got the rss feed thing worked out on my blujay lens on squidoo.

Speaking of squidoo, I built my lens in honor of something my son loves, and that is legos. I have all the kids and grandkids favorites done now....and should do one on Elvis in honor of my mother. If you would like to check out the lego one you can go to Legos

Until tomorrow, have an awesome day!

Wednesday October 29

Good Morning!
I don't think there will be too much excitement today. I am off work. I hope to get these other 7 listings done on homeschoolbuy, build at least one more squidoo lens, and then do anything else that I can get done online.

At some point we have to get out and pay for new tags for the van...other than than, no plans outside the house. Woo Hoo! I'm going to think today is Friday LOL

I still haven't written anything but my daily post on gather, so today I would like to share again with you mycoolcontests.

I've won 7 prizes so far. It's a lot of fun going through the prizes in hopes that one or more has your name on it. It's totally free, and I hope you will check it out. You get 1 entry for signing up and then a 2nd entry for putting in a photo. Then, for each referral you get an additional entry each day.
I've made a squidoo lens on it too that tells a lot more detail if you are interested in checking that out. Mycoolcontests

I only logged in to winster yesterday but didn't have time to play. I didn't want to lose my 300 spins though. I will have 600 when I log in today but doubt that I use them all. It's a lot of fun to play too but a time waster since I can't have any other windows open at the same time due to that causing me a lot of lag.

I will close for this day and see you all tomorrow :)

Tuesday October 28

Good Morning.
I was wrong about the weather yesterday. It was cold and stayed that way. The wind was chilly. Today's high is 60 and they are still saying a high of 69 for Halloween but now they've added partly cloudy and breezy to the mix.

Today is Tuesday and as you know my busiest day of the week. I took Allen Jr. to school this morning. Soon enough I will head out to work. Instead of math tutoring today for Heather, she has a dentist appt. A little after that it's take my mom t her dr. appt. Home, a quick supper and off to the bowling alley.

Once again, I didn't post anything extra at gather. Instead, I spent a couple of hours putting together my lensography on squidoo. I hope you will check that out for me. Marsha's Lensography

I guess that is it for today...really need to get in my winster spins this morning....or at least log in maybe just to get them on there might be good for today since (yippee!!) this is my last day to work this week!! I will have more time to get the spins played.

Have a very blessed day,

Monday October 27

We've made it to another Monday as the month of October is coming to an end.
The weather just wasn't near as nice yesterday as it was Saturday...the darn wind was up all day bringing a chill with it. I think today will be much better.
No real plans today other than work, except a trip to the health dept. for a shot as soon as I get off work.
I sat last night and got 18 listing put in at homeschoolbuy. I have 7 more listings to go for now to complete what I got at the book sale. I have over 80 school related books for all ages listed if you would care to take a look. Marsha's Homeschoolbuy auctions

Yesterday the email notifications were all messed up at gather. We were only getting group notifications and not individual friends. I did what I could that way but didn't write anything past my daily Investing For the Future post. Here is a Walgreens post I put in on Saturday...I will be doing these monthly. Walgreens Rebate Shopping for October

I only work today and tomorrow this week, so I hope the rest of the week I am able to get a lot done on the computer...and hey, maybe I can convince my mom, and then help her get rid of some of that clutter upstairs.

Until tomorrow, have a great day!

Sunday October 26

Good Morning!
As you can see, I made it through yesterday. The kids and I had fun buying books at the library book sale. Once home I started getting them scanned or pics taken of them. I got 3 craft books listed in my blujay store. I have 20+ books sitting here beside me to list at homeschoolbuy. Not sure how many I will get in today since we do have church this morning and then Bible study this evening.
My daughter and I went to pick up our food orders from the Angel Food Ministry.
I got a call to come in earlier to help with the German fundraising dinner at my church. I spent 5 hours helping there. It was fun. Once home I was going to work on the books but did my spotwinner, mycoolcontests, and posted a couple of posts at gather.

The weather was great yesterday with a high of 77!! It's supposed to be in the high 60's through Halloween and I sure hope so.

Today I will share my mail call post of gather. Mail Call! Week of October 19

Almost 8 am and Sunday school starts at 8:45 so I better run and get the kids ready to go.

Have a blessed day,
