eye candy

 oh how cute it this little jar with the scalloped lid?  I know, right!   Kmart.. christmas section!    They are for making those cookie mix gifts.  6.00 bucks.. a little much for a plastic jar.. but stinking cute!  It came with a red ribbon, but of course.. its halloween time, so I changed it to a halloweenish ribbon.  You could switch the color up for all holidays.  easter pastels  red valentines.. green for st pattys..  anyways.. its really adorable!  I might have to go get some more.  They would make really cute gifts as well!
 Heres my other candy jar.  This is just a big glass cookie jar.  I stuck one of those window clings on it.  I know... good idea!  huh!?  lol!   and is that candy not just stinking cute?   Bought it world market in Ohio.  I want more.  but we dont have one around here.

I bought another skeleton yesterday...  hes living in the back yard.. no one can see him but me.  Well I mean You only see him out the window over the stove.. I needed to see something cute out there.  He looks much closer then he is.  Hes really quite a ways back there.  Its a little cold this morning.. poor guy is probably chilled to the bone!  LOL!! 
OK, Im off to hang out with my besties today.  a little shopping and lunch.  perfect way to spend the day!  Can't beat that!
Happy Sunday my bloggy pies!

Its all good...

  Its all good today girls.. just in a little mood yesterday morning.. one of those moments of discontentment, but I have a grateful heart and those moments never last long.  I am always 100% grateful for every bit of my life..even if my house is a wreck!  I am grateful to live where I live, to have raised my children here.. and that it is comfortable and cute and filled with love.  And so much more.. and even if I complain about going to work.. I do like my job and the people I work with and I am blessed to have a decent job.
And on that note...  TGIF!!!!  only working half a day, mammogram this afternoon, and then I forgot that I am watching violet this afternoon and evening.   That makes me smile.
wondering why Buffys pic is here this morning?    lol!   last night she wanted my attention and she just kept chattering and whistling and calling me.  then all of a sudden she said "what ever!"   We about died laughing.   I say that to her sometimes if Im giving her something to eat and she throws it out cause she doesnt want it.   I'll say, "whatever buffy" and walk away.  I was really surprised when she said it last night.  I do love that silly bird.
Okeedokie.. have a great day and a great weekend my friends!

blaa blaa blaa...

OH my!  I think marla's thinking "grammie needs a dentist!"   These are a few pics from monday.  Arent they cutie pies!?    they sure did love playing with those teeth.  We had a fun day.. except for when they were playing Pirates with paper towel rolls while I was making dinner.. and I thought they were just sword fighting, till I came in the living room and found them beating on buffys cage with them.  the poor parrot was huddled back in a corner of the cage... then I turned into grammie monster and they were a little surprised that grammie yelled at them like that..  

They played with those teeth all day.  In fact, Tiffany posted  this pic on facebook yesterday and said that Marla had been Roaring in lilliannas face!  oh dear... I created a cute little orange toothed monster.
Im feeling a little crappy physically and mentally this morning.  wishing I had a fairy god mother and some super creative energetic friends around to help me fix up this disaster of a house  (oh and some money! cant forget that.) sometimes I think I should get rid of everything and start over fresh, without so much stuff.  Im actually a jealous person.  I watch house hunters and some of those programs and then I start hating my own house and want to change everything.. .or really, just want to move!  by myself!  to a little cottage on the lake. ..  alone.. with figgy and frannie and buffy... lol!  

OK.. enough of that..  back to reality.. I just need to make the best of what I have.  And I do.. most of the time...   blaa blaa blaa.. waa waa waa... whine whine whine!    I really should get off this stupid computer and do something constructive.!
Look how cute my little violet pie is!   I have the cutest little grandbabies!  I cant believe I'm getting another one in jan...  isnt that crazy?! 
I have a big pink like blood spot on the white of my eye this morning and a headache.. I hope Im not having a stroke or something...  
ok.. Im sure Im not and I shouldnt joke about stuff like that. 
just a little out of sorts today.  I need to eat some healthy food and go for a walk.
busy day ahead and its almost friday!  only working half a day tomorrow cause its mammogram day.  then I think Im going to a show tomorrow night maybe..   saturday Im supposed to see my dear old blog friend Natalea  and sunday Im going out with a couple friends shopping, eating and maybe to a movie.   so busy weekend ahead.  And, inbetween all of that, I have to keep working on bears. 
So I suppose that I should go work on some bears now.  
Happy day my bloggy pies!

just a quickie post!

 Good morning ghoul friends!   just stopping in for a very quick post this morning.  Wanting to wish my canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving!  Its also Columbus day here.. but its just not the kind of day that we say, "happy Columbus day" for.. not that I dont wish everyone a  happy day!
stayed busy with bear orders this weekend.  pretty much didnt work on bears much on saturday as I shopped with daughter Bethany most of the day.  but yesterday, I was proud of myself.  I stayed focused! woohoo!  (I have a terrible problem with that...) 
Im about to do a little sewing for about an hour and then heading out to the grocery store.  And then... to pick up princess Marla pie!   Not only will Miss Marla be here, but Torry and violet pies as well!  Lilly is staying home with her momma.   I have a few little plans to keep my pies busy and happy today..  Camera battery is charging as we speak!   Im sure we'll have a fun day and I will be exhausted later! lol!
Still so many bears to make.  I have a bunch of big orders and a few smaller ones..  33 bears in total.  thats a lot of bears.  so I am working on them.. I do a lot of procrastinating though! lol!
have a great day my friends.. I really need to make some tea and do some sewing!
Happy Columbus Day! LOL!

 I feel like the rabbit on alice in wonderland.. running running .. running.. late.   Well, Im not late for anything.  but I'm always in a hurry! lol! ( oh heck.. thats not true, Im late for all kinds of stuff.. thats why I never give an actual time.. I always say, "around such and such a time..."  lol!!  Because Im always getting caught up in something totally random at the last minute..  like right now.. rushing because suddenly when I should be getting ready for work, I find myself thinking..  Ohhh, I have time to put up a quick post.  and then I see Figgy and Frannie sitting her next to my computer with their eyes all squinty and cute wanting me to pet them.. and then I decide, I need to take their pictures.. which then means I need to Hurry and upload them.. label them and save them!  
 because its seems totally necessary to share them with you here, this morning.. like now,  because of course everyone in the world.. ok.. everyone in blogland, needs and wants to see figgy and frannies awesome cuteness this morning!  right?!  right!
