Good Sunday morning!
Did you remember to set your clock BACK??
One year I did forget. I was at work an hour early. Trust me, that didn't happen again. :)
I got up early this morning; doing laundry, dealing with a cat who for some reason has stopped using the litter box and no he isn't sick. He is a little brat! lol
He prefers to do his business on the floor. ggrrrr....................
Anyways, back to the laundry. I have one load to go and it is done till tomorrow morning. I also baked 3 loaves of apple cinnamon bread. Got to tell ya , it is yummy!! Nope, I don't have a recipe. The bread is made from a mix, yes, I said a mix. lol
I picked up three boxes (country value brand apple cinnamon bread) at Big Lots. They are $1.80 each. so much better than the $4.86 a loaf for gourmet bread at Walmart.
Plus, my house smells divine right now. :)
I thought some of you might be interested in this freebie for business cards. I ordered some for my blog. My thinking was they would be great to include with swaps, giveaways and even sending a card. :)
quote fronm their site..........
"Just select any of our business card designs. When you are done, you will be able to put a single order of 10 cards in your cart. Standard shipping will be free, just like it is for all our orders.Note: only one order of free cards per customer."
We went and helped a local family yesterday. We still need to finish their bathroom floor. You could not step in front of the tub, that's how bad it was. The mom actually went through it up to her ankle last week. They are checking the local carpet places for some leftover/discarded floor covering to put over the new plywood.
I know that alot of people have it bad these days. But, when it is in your face, it's a real reality check. They have four young children ( all are under 8). They don't have much and the house is not the best. Things are worn but it was clean.
Two of their girls came home with me to pick up a level and extra screws. They asked if I had any peanut butter for sandwiches. We took two jars and four loaves of bread back to their house. You would have thought I gave them gold! Those two little girls ran in the house exclaiming that THEY brought some food home to help out. I went back outside and cried.
My girls have no idea what it is like to be humgry or go without. No child should ever have to know that feeling in this country!
I told the mom that I would show her how to make some curtains, pillows , etc.
Last night when we got home I posted on freecycle for a sewing machine,a tv and a bed. The kids have beds but the parents do not. The dad works fulltime but the money just isn't enough. There is no tv in the house . I have a bunch of educational VHS movies and an old vcr. If someone offers a TV they can at least have the movies to watch. It doesn't even matter what size.
Keep thinking good thoughts that someone will email me with these things.
