Last Day of August..............sad

Sadly it is the last day of August and the feeling of autumn is in the air...............I love autumn. Cool weather, leaves falling and raking them, mmmm, good exercise, bringing in the harvest, finally it is soup time! I love the changing of the color of the leaves, maybe we will be able to take a long week end and enjoy the fall before the winter comes upon us. Of course maybe with global warming it should not be so COLD here in WISCONSIN (laughing out loud).

I found a new blog to follow today, I shall be checking her out everyday to see what she has to say about the world around her...........she is a christian with a view on the news, opinions and life. What I have read so far has been very interesting, check her out at:

Not much going on today, exercise at IAW and we get measured and weighed............I am still struggling with this weight as it goes up and down at every whim. I should not complain though as I have been at this since the last week in April and according to stitistics I am right on the mark as I have lost 12 lbs and that would be 3 lbs lost a month, soooooo I am doing great!!!! Now when I get measured that will be the tell-tale-test. At the last measurment, I had lost 22 inches. We will see what happens today.............I will report back with the news.

Going to shut this blog down for now as I have to get my jobs off the internet and get organized, so I know where I am going this week. So you have a great day and keep looking up as JESUS is coming soon!!!!!

One More Week in August

Just a short note to all that read this blog: I made each paragraph in different colors, not just for looks but because I just could not seem to get this blog to seperate, if I had left it as is, was hard to read. Ssssooooo I seperated with color. Looks nice though, doesn't it, a little embellishment.'s true, one more week in August. I mentioned in my Etsy store annoucements that "Poor, poor August" did not have any holiday in it's 31 days.......BUT.......August sure has been a busy month full of surprises too! Here's a lovely picture of my Gladiolis's.........a surprise that they even grew this summer as they were some of the bulbs I had left in the ground over the winter.

Went to the funeral of a woman I used to work with......amazing how the death of someone can fan the flames of a lot of memories, some not so good. Saw a few people I had not seen in years, my how they have did JP and I no doubt. The funeral was short and sweet, I think she was cremated, the family led the service, (there was no clergy) and there was alot of remembering of her and her pranks she played on people........ummm......her vindictiveness hurt alot at times and I was her target many a time. Sadly, I will not miss her much, I often wonder if things could have been a little bit different between her and I......but her beliefs and mine did not seem to be compatable. Oh well.......time to let bygones be bygones......hopefully she made to the other side and is dancing in the arms of Jesus. If not......she's burning, big time!!!!!!!
JP and I will be celebrating our 36th anniversary this special plans that I know of. I think we shall go out to eat, just him and I, we are due for that steak dinner. Yep, we met in March of 1971 on a blind date............hard to believe the time has passed us by this fast....was only yesterday, wasen't it? mother's birthday was this month, she would have been 83 on the 2nd. Nieces birthday on the 9th, also Frances birthday on the 9th. Another friend on the 5th, oh and on the 15th was Kathy's birthday and the 20th Bill's birthday. The 17th was the death of that lady I worked with.
Starting next month JP will be getting Social Security...........we both chose to get early retirement.........after reading an article today on Yahoo, maybe it's a good thing to get it early, cause for the next 2 years there is not going to be an automatic raise, honestly, older people worked all there lives then comes retirement and guess what, they can't afford to retire anymore. This country sure is messed up and the rich get richer and poor get poorer.
As I sit here looking at my calendar for August, I am a little sad, as all I did was work, pay bills, exercise, and watch my weight, to no avail.......JP and I sure do need a vacation, even if it's just a week-end to Door County and sit by Lake Michigan........oh well, we'll see what September brings.
Well, I think I shall close this blog for tonight and go on to my other blog at: Have a good day and see ya....."here, there, or in the air"

Hel.....looooooo? Where did Summer GO?

I must have closed my eyes for a season and missed summer..........where did it disapear to? I know I have been busy, but here it is August already and I am not even sure we had a summer. Good grief and September is right around the corner. I was doing dishes this morning and actualy saw a leaf on the backyard tree starting to turn to it's lovely orange and yellow colors of FALL.......yikes winter is not far behind.

Well, I have been pretty busy making cards lately. Was able to put some cards in the "Inches A Weigh" establishment and have actually sold a few cards. (or should I say, they sold themselves)I am trying to refresh the card basket with new cards every couple of weeks just to keep things interesting. Following are some of my newest cards that I will soon be adding to my etsy store also.

A lovely elagant wedding card in light blue, I have a wedding card in light violet and teal and may add those at a later date. Isn't life Sweet and a little note card that you can add your own sediments to. I am going to try and add a few more cards to this blog................if it will let me.
Next on the agenda is a little aligator birthday card. It tickled my funny bone when I first laid eyes on it. I really must buy this stamp so I can have him close at hand. In the mean time I will have to borrow him from Betty. My Thinking of You card was made from a tag punch.........another item that I need to purchase (hopefully I can sell enough cards to buy these two items in the near future. Well, I will add a few more cards on my next blog at: keep you in suspense so you will have to check that blog out also.

We have been pretty busy, doing lots of yard work, house work, body work..................I am still stuck at 10 lbs and 20 inches, well, guess that is better then nothing. 10lbs is 10lbs and 20inches is 20inches, can't bark at that, that is for sure.

Goodness, alot of things have happened this summer. Micheal Jackson and Farah Fawcet died, Obama wants to put us under bondage with his health care regiem, Farve is not going to the Vikings and is actually retiring, Jeanene won "So you think you can dance" (I was hoping for Brandon), Adam Lambert lost to what's his name on American Idol oh and Paula will not return to Idol...........I think she will go on to judge on So you think you can prediction.

This will be the summer of surprises............well, I think I will close this one for awhile...........I await your comments................have a great day and keep looking up. Louise

Yep, life is sweet!!!!!!
