C'mon.....I NEED My Beauty Rest!!

I do!! At a few decades past 20 years old......I need every second I can get!! Last night I went to bed about midnight....aaaahhhhhh!!
......sleeping soundly!! See.....I am much more beautiful....when asleep!! :O)

About 2:30am'ish....Maggie Mae the crazy cat invited guests over for a lil' one on one knock down brawl and Miss Opal our lab-child decided she was unhappy about it.....
....what the.....Oh you two....go to bed!!

So the outcome of another night without sleep you ask...........gorgeous don'cha think!! Is 9am too early to go to bed for the night????

Have a great day....you know.....all those who aren't on a sleep deprived rampage today....for my fellow insomniacs.......I'm selling my animal children and/or husband and child (just in case they bother me too) to the gypsies!! :O)

Night!!

Okay Boys and Girls.....Put Yer Thinkin' Caps On!!

About a year ago we bought a new vacuum....a Kenmore bag less. It was nice as we tried it out in the store.....I loved the wand with the brush to sweep our furniture with.....the sales-dude explained that it had 4000 filters so no dust would get back into the air....blah, blah, blah...anyway...we were sold!!

I HATE THIS VACUUM!! Although it makes wonderful dog hair, dust bunny bird nests around one of the 4000 filters.....it picks NOTHING up!! ARG!!!!! Now you know how much I love cleaning.....but c'mon.....if I gotta do it.....the very least I expect is that it actually look clean after I do it!!

This is where you come in......as I see it....here are my choices....

  • I've heard good things about the Dyson brand bag less vacuum.....anyone have one? I like the idea of not having to purchase bags all the time....however....I understand that the bag less get's bogged down and looses suction. So anyone with one....what do ya think....is it worth the extra money for the brand????
  • I could go back to the Hoover Windtunnel. We bought one 10 years or more ago and it's still is great......the wand pick up like new!!
  • I could take a straw and suck up the dirt and spit it into a trash bag.....I'm thinking I'd have much more suction than my stupid Kenmore....but you know.....I'm not sure!!
  • We have a wonderful gas leaf blower!!
So.....give me your best shot!! Spill the beans....dish the dirt....tell me wha'cha think!!

Thanks!! :O) Have a great day!!

You Know the Kind!!

There are those among us that just have a way!!

I am a horrible blogger!! I find a few moments a day to get online....and usually those moments are spent reading email and occasionally checking out a few blogs.....however....rarely do I take the time to comment on others' blogs....even rarer yet.....I am horrible about sending out a "howdy" kinda email!! I just don't take the time....no excuses.....it's just not something I am good at!!

However.....there are those that do!

Teresa from the Deppen Homestead 1862 has it....she has a way about her....she takes the time!! Though I don't do it often.....in my blog hopping....I often see that Teresa visits many of our blogs in blogland.......I often see that she gives an encouraging word wherever she may visit. I just really must tell you......Ms. Teresa has warmed my heart on more than one occasion!! Today....not unlike many other days, she took the time to send me a little note that just made my heart smile!! She didn't need to do this.....she doesn't "know" me nor does she have spare time to burn......Teresa is just a kind hearted treasure that makes the time to give joy!!

There are many kinds of folks in this world of ours......some encounters with people leave you filled with a joy that makes you warm and ready to share that joy......Ms. Teresa.....you are a joy giver...and I am thankful to call you my friend!! Thank you for being and sharing the joy that makes life fun!!

Please....has Teresa visited your blog......has she left you an encouraging word that really made you smile......has she taken the time to spread her joy in your life????? Let's all send her a little of that joy!! Let's all say thank you......to Teresa......and to the many like her that make this online community such a great place to play!! Let's spread the joy of thanksgiving......all over blogland!!

How 'bout it......have you taken the time today?

New Adventures of.......

...Maggie Mae...the crazy cat.....



Yesterday, Rick and I spent the day junkin' at Roger's Flea Market and I found this yummy wool quilt....I haven't found a home for it yet, however, Maggie Mae, the crazy cat has found a home......on it!! Great find!! :O)

We stopped in Augusta on the way home and did a quick run-through at Manfull Orchards and Farmgirl Finds....Oh my goodness!! Run....don't walk....(er um drive carefully probably) right now to these wonderful shops!! Not only will you find a few of our treasures there, you'll find yummy baked goods, fresh produce from the farm, home-grown beef, and gorgeous must-have antiques!! You will definitely want to make plans to come see all the Christmas goodies both shops have in store for ya!! I came home with a yummy "Christmas Spice" candle that I can burn and fool my family into thinking I baked!! :O)

BTW....we came home with a huge load from Roger's....watch for more great treasures to come from our shop with the glorious "trash" we found!!
Yep!! She's comfy......and until the next addition of "Adventures of Maggie Mae, the Crazy Cat".....have a meow-i-ful day!!
Stacey.....and Maggie!!

I'm No Dummy......

....fer'real....I'm not!! Occasionally I play one on TV, but honestly.....I can run a saw and still have all my digits remain intact.....I can sew and fix lunch at the same time!! Most times I can walk and chew gum at the same time too!! I could help Brady with his math homework....clear till 3rd grade and I only forgot where I was s'posed to be once (this week)!! So clearly.....I'm not unintelligent!!

So......how do I explain this......
....oh for the love of pete......how in the h3ll do you rip off a piece of seran wrap with out going completely insane???????

And now......it's time for me to take my afternoon meds!! Toodles!!
Stacey

Let Us Never Forget.....



...to remember!!


Thank you Veteran's for your sacrifice......we remember, we appreciate, we the people...will not forget!!

Another One Bites the Dust!!

Fwooooo!! Show number 4 of 5 is over and the remains are strung out throughout the house!! Geesh!! There wasn't much left again.......but boy does my house need a good cleaning and organizing!!

I think it perfectly normal that there are crates of babies in the dining room ......don't you!! There's an extra cabinet in the family room and if you come in the door too quickly.....you'll see it up close and personal like when you run smack-dab into it!!

There's still a jack-o-lantern and black crow on my dining room table...as well as the crud Brady dumped from his book-bag last night!! I'm either early for next year's Halloween celebration.....or I perhaps may be running a bit late in getting my decor down!!

No one had clean socks this morning......but we did all have lots of deodorant because I had been out of milk for almost a week....(we have eaten homemade bread and pie for every meal......don't be impressed.....I picked them up from the market I wholesale to when I made a delivery late last week).... so I was forced to get groceries yesterday!!

What are my duties today you ask........yep!! I think I'll play in my room!! **giggles** Let them wear stinky socks......and their underwear backwards!! They're men after all....stank is manly....right!! tee hee hee!! Yea....NO....I gotta live with 'em!! I'll do laundry....and play!! The cleaning can wait till tomorrow....or next week!! :O)

Have a great one all!!
