It must be my magnetic personality!

Well, it has been quite a week!  It started on Sunday when I couldn't load pictures because I ran out of storage for my blog.  I now pay $2.50 a month to blog so that's fixed.  Then we had a storm....1/4 inch of rain but the lightening hit my t.v. and now that's broke but no fires so that's good.  Then I had problems with my Dish satellite so I spent a day on the phone with them (ok, so not all day...but it felt like it!) then the next day they came out and installed a new Dish Satellite which took the afternoon.  By then, I needed to go to Walmart and get groceries and I've been behind ever since!  The storm woke me up the one night and so I was tired was just one of those weeks or 3 days where I could not get anything done.  But hopefully, I'm back on track now and can blog and watch t.v. and get some needlework done too.  I haven't even touched it! BTW....yesterday they said it was cooler so I went outside and started doing some heavy duty landscaping and I thought I was going to have heat stroke!  I came in and it was 97!  They call that "cooler"?  Whoa Nellie!
  Below is my ugly landscaping!   I tried landscape fabric and that did NOT work so I am using newspaper which is more natural and hopefully by the time it "rots" I will have established a "no weed" zone.....most notable Bermuda of the Top Ten most noxious weeds known to gardeners!  I would have never started this project had I known and learn!  

Below is what I am dealing least some of it died out with the drought.

 But I did manage to take 3 boxes of things to the Thrift Store and I picked up a few things too but not 3 boxes worth.  Mostly, it was my Fall wardrobe! LOL!
 This heavy duty basket.............I can always use good baskets!
 This wallpaper is vinyl and pre-pasted and only .99 a roll....I bought all they had as even if I don't use it as wallpaper it is great for lining drawers or even on table tops as it is vinyl and washable.  It looks like green ticking cloth. 
  I also got this cute little bowl/dish but after I got it home I could read the bottom and it had come with a candle in it at one time so I probably won't use it for baking or eating but it is cute for holding a candle.

That's all for now but I have lots to catch up on in telling you and also visiting and seeing what you all have been up too!  Have a great Thursday!


  1. Wow what a week you've had already. Glad to hear that there was no damage to the house. Blowing out a TV is bad enough. It's raining here right now. We've had lots of rain and cooler temps and morning fog and all the stuff that you would expect in August in rural northwestern PA.

  2. My goodness, dear, but you have been a busy bee. Sorry about your TV but I'm glad there was no fire. I don't know where you get your energy from but if you have any extra, could you bottle it and send it my way. We have had lower temps for almost a week now and I have had the windows open enjoying the cool breeze but today, it got hot and I got hot so back on the AC went. At least maybe I will be able to sleep tonight with having to listen to the dog down the street do his nightly report. : ) Sharon

  3. Good luck on catching up! It is cooler here and we are loving it! Take care, and don't catch up all at once!

  4. Though blowing out a TV is bad event. I am glad to hear that there was no damage to the house. God bless you.
