And that's all folks... time to get to work!
Hope your day is full of Sunshine and Wonder. B=)
Above is the cutest Art Quilt of the show (IMHO< LOL!) yes, it is a little farm scene with tiny little quilts and little pumpkins. It was soooo detailed. It was wonderful. Of course I can't take a good picture for the life of me but this was Joanna's attempt at capturing the magic of this quilt and my happiness at finding it. This was at the very, very, very end of the show when they were kicking us out of the exhibit! I think they turned off the lights when we left, LOL!

hired a crew to clear the backyardand loaded up on bug spray.Now mind you, I am STILL dealing with the flood issues, still some debris in the yard for the insurance guy but I am a woman on a mission.
I will NOT let the Spring flood ruin my Summer.

Well, this is a little initial quilt that Joanna made for me on my Birthday, no not FOR my birthday, but yes, ON my Birthday! It has the cutest little punpkins as you can see and it is quilted to read Pumpkins on all four sides.
So the story here is that Joanna makes Initial blocks for every ocassion under the sun. And I was going to call her and give her grief because it was my Birthday; and ahem! I think it's MY TURN to get a little initial, LOL! The thing was, I got all caught up in calling her to harass her into baking me a cake (great minds do think alike, she was "on it" before I started giving her grief!), that I just forgot to give her grief about the initial so when she presented the gift, I just could not stop laughing, the woman is psychic. She had a good laugh too, seeing how she was baking the cake while I was telling her that she had to tell her husband to stop at the supermarket to buy some ice cream to serve up with the cake that she surely should be baking instead of hanging out on the computer, LOL!
She did bake a cake...and it was soooo good. It was a box cake, just like TSandy used to make...but she made the frosting herself, it was delicious. Oh, and Roland did buy the Ice Cream too. How sweet was that? Oh, it was just too perfect!
Thanks for all your hard work Joanna, you made my day extra special!
OMG! I just checked and it does open...thanks T for the tip! Woo-HOO! Oh great, now you can see a freakin thread I seemed to have picked up when I put the pillow on the table for a quick picture, duh! Trust me, that's not a loose thread from the pillow, that's just thread from the table. I'm such a goofball!

I'm so proud of him for trying this new ride. I was teasing him telling him he had to make sure he wasn't "speeding", and he was just laughing!!!
Yes, that's another one of his Posse in the back car...gotta love this park! If you or anyone you know has a child with Special Needs...please be sure to tell them that Canobie Lake is without a doubt, one of the best places to take them. The staff is just awesome there. Oh, and I don't have any affiliation with them. I just go there often...and there is a reason, the staff!
Hope your next trip to the park is as much fun as ours was...B=)
I think I'll go see UP! today. And watch the pool guys as they clean the pool that I intend to waddle in as soon as it hits 90 degrees (well, if they show up, that is. Good help is REALLY hard to find in NH!). Aside from that there will be no Homeschool in the Mercado household today, we are playing hookey, big time! Hee-hee.
Now, I'll share my presents, which I already received yesterday. My sisters sent me ...drumroll please... an IPOD! Ok, so I'll confess that my first thought was "OH, I need to wait until GP gets home so he can "hook me up!" but little did I know that they had in fact realized that I needed a little extra help and the little Ipod was all set to go. It is LOADED with audiobooks to listen to while I do my crafting. How great is that? All I had to do was plug in the headphones and turn it on...and I was all set.
Now, my husband is not one to be outdone so when he saw what the girls had sent me he went out and bought me this....
So now my little Ipod sits in a throne of her own. Oh, isn't she the cutest thing???Oh, and she is Orange, of course! These women spoil me , what can I say??? Thank you ladies, I positively LOVE, LOVE,LOVE my little pumpkin. GP says it's named Pumpkin Patch and not Ipod because when you turn it on, it reads Pumpkin Patch. How'd they do that? I'll never know.
Oh, wait. GP wants to know when I'm going to add music to it and I told him that Mom's Ipod is for stories only. Then he asks me "but when the stories are all done, THEN you add music?" and I tell him, "No, when I listen to all the stories I pack it up and send it to T-Sandy who will erase the old stories and put in new ones" and Gino started laughing so hard I thought he was going to pass out. Oh, that's my husband. I guess he wasn't expecting that one...HMMM. Maybe he thought that I actually knew how to do something other than plug in the headphones? Hello! while he was playing with electronics I was teaching myself some crafting skills, duh! Men!
Anyway...hope your day is full of fun today. Take the day off, celebrate...after all, it is My Birthday, woo-hoo!
