Saturday May 2

Good Saturday morning. It's still chilly here...sure too chilly for me.

I sold some books on homeschoolbuy this past week. I have a whole stack of books that need to be listed. That is my goal today is to get them listed. Other plans include another evening at my boyfriends. I know we are going to bbq again. Nice thing is, if it's raining he just keep the grill in the garage. We had planned on playing dominoes but his sister is going out of town. I guess we will end up watching a movie instead.

I didn't accomplish much yesterday online...why??....because I got too stuck on that Mahjong dimensions at iwon. Has that happened to you? And, I don't earn anything there unless I would be lucky enough to win something I put my points in for. What is wrong with me? It's all I can do to stop myself right now from opening it up to play some more. LOL

I did cash out for $50 in amazon with gather yesterday....but I need at least another $100 or so from other places...and by this time next month to get my laptop when I want it to make my goal. I want to have it before we head to Bible camp for family camp at the end of June.

I really don't have anything else to say today...sad isn't it? I'm still over 6000 emails in my gmail...besides getting the books listed I really need to concentrate today on clearing out the email.

Have a great Saturday!

Friday May 1

Good Morning! It was after supper time last night when I realized I hadn't put in a blog for the day.
We got really busy Wednesday afternoon and got the garden planted....7 tomato plants, 2 banana pepper plants, 4 bell pepper plants, 9 Blue lake bean plants, 2 strawberry plants and a row of lettuce. Still not as large as I would like, but larger than last season. We also went to the awards ceremony for Awanas. Jasmine got a certificate for perfect attendance, another for finishing a book. She also got a medal for finishing a book as well as a nice Bible for teenage girls for moving up to Trek.

Allen ended up sick with fever and sore throat Wednesday evening. I got stuck playing this game at iwon...mahjong dimensions. I stayed up way too late and when I was ready to go to bed Allen was up with a stomach ache. He is still home today as they aren't allowed back to school until their fever has been down for a full 24 hours.

I got some videos in on gather yesterday, then it gave up on me and wouldn't load anymore. I will try again today. I'm cashing out with gather today for $50 in amazon but still need a minimum of $75 more in amazon to make my goal of buying a laptop. Need to bust a move to get it in the time I would like...which is before we head to the Bible camp at the end of June for family camp.
The guy that sold me my van says he has another vehicle he can let me drive until we find something else. I need to call and check with him on that. Heather and I both have dr. appts this afternoon and I need to call and make the girls dentist appts.

I will end for today by saying:

Wednesday April 29

Gosh, I've been doing so many things all at once this morning I am just now getting to writing my blog for the day.
It's still raining outside. I had hoped it would clear up. I've bought 4 tomato plants, 2 strawberry plants, 1 banana pepper plant, 4 green bean plants, and 4 bell pepper plants that I was really hoping to get planted today.

I started out my morning by writing a very long post on gather about yesterday. I won't type it in here for sure, but if you are interested please visit What Are the Odds.....
I plan on putting in all photos and videos that I have stored on my computer to gather that aren't already there today if I find the time. At least that way they won't be lost!

I know I updated a few squidoo lenses, but the way my mind is working right now I don't know which ones LOL

Tonight is the last night and awards night at Awanas. Jasmine is sad that it's over for the year....I am too.

It's just after noon now so I am going to get this posted. Have a great Wednesday!

Tuesday April 28

Good Morning! Brrr, it was pretty chilly here yesterday. I had to grab my coat when we went shopping. 40 right now. I bought some tomato and bell pepper plants yesterday. I am hoping to get those planted today.

I did my Walgreen shopping and got that trip listed on gather. Walgreen shopping 4/27/09

I did some more updating of squidoo lenses yesterday. I added a photo of my own file to my Sidetracked Home Executives Book Review Lens
I added some neat picture sayings to my Tweety Bird Lens

Today's is my oldest child, and only son's birthday. He is 26 today. We have no plans and I don't have a gift or a card for him! I better get on the ball finding out what we are going to do. I have a chocolate cake mix and frosting in the pantry but I am thinking he is the one that doesn't like chocolate. Just chatted with my oldest daughter and she is going to get a hold of him and see what he wants to do. We may end up doing another bbq despite the weather.

I guess I better close this for today and move on to other things. Here's to a great day to you all,

Monday April 27

Good Morning! It's been one rainy weekend here and it doesn't look like it's ready to let up yet.
Jasmine and I had a good time spending Saturday evening with Steve. We started out having bbq chicken, mac and cheese, green beans and rolls for supper. Then, we watched 2 movies.
Church was nice yesterday morning, I even got my oldest daughter and the grandkids there. One of our new members is building us a church website. Because the church is not the building, but the people, he brought his equipment and took a photo of all who were at the service yesterday. That will be the main photo on our website.
After church I put supper in the crockpot, but oops...forgot to turn the crockpot on! We did get to eat but just later in the evening than usual. Oh well, it all worked out in the end.

Today is my moderate cleaning day upstairs and I've decided to work a bit on here, clean up there and back and forth until it's done upstairs. I also want to get up to Walgreens today for my weekly shopping there. Also in hopes while up north there I can stop into the large grocery with the greenhouse and get some plants and things to get my garden going.

I did my mail call post on gather a day late yesterday. Mail Call! Week of April 19 I also shared Photos From My Birthday 4/24/09

I got in Our Unschooling Journey Part 2 weekly update in a day later than usual on squidoo.
I updated the first lens as well...Our Unschooling Journey
I even update my general Homeschooling lens as well.

All in all I ended up getting a lot more done online yesterday than I thought I would. For now I better get back to the housework. Here's to a great start to your week,
