Woo Hoo!

I finally won something! I've been following this blog called Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers. It's a very interesting blog. Every week on Friday she has an author come and talk and usually gives away one of their books. I won Organize Your Corpse, by Mary Jane Maffini the first book in the Charlotte Adams series. It's a mystery series and sounds really interesting! She also has a couple other series that sound pretty interesting.

Anastasia's blog also talks with other people about fashion, self defense, cooking, and crafts! You should check it out.

Not again!

A few years ago when I was working 3rd shifts. I came home one morning and crawled into bed and passed out. What felt like only 5 mins later my dad came running up stairs and asked me if I was alright. I looked at him like "what the heck". He said he was surprised it didn't wake me up. "It sounded like a 747 hit our house!" It seems the tree that is out by the road in front of the farmhouse decided it wanted to try and kill me. A branch (branch hahaha it was as big as some trees) decided to fall onto the porch and almost came through my window. My bed was right next to the window at the time.

Last night as I was wrapping up what I was doing on the computer about to go crawl into bed. I heard a creak a rustle and a big BOOM! The house didn't shake... so I got curious. I went downstairs but it was so dark out I couldn't see anything. But then this morning....

Yes the same tree! Gladly it didn't hit the house this time. Anyone want some firewood?

Father's Day part 2

So I let Dad pick what to have for dinner tonight and he wanted seafood. So I broiled cod, scallops, and shrimp and made John and me an angel hair pasta with herbs, and dad a baked tater (he's not big on pasta or rice). Then we had watermelon for dessert. Needless to say i'm stuffed! Dad opened his Father's Day prezzies before we ate. He loves the card and the DVDs.

I was horrible and didn't even start the card til yesterday. It didn't take me too long but last night as I was stitching and starting to fall asleep I did make a few x's in the wrong direction. That told me to put it down finish it tomorrow and go to bed. So that's what I did.

I got the pattern off of someones blog... which is saved on my hard drive. If anyone wants to know i'll look it up. (I'll try to remember to credit the person later)

Hope everyone had a great Sunday.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the fabulous fathers out there! I'll post pics of my dad's present later today. I really need to go finish it so I can give it to him at dinner.
