Mailbox Surprise!

Today Phil walked in the door rattling a box from the mailbox. What? I haven't ordered anything from Amazon really! Then I saw that it was from Lesley! Lesley is on the same Creative Team as me at Butternug Squash. It was toys for the boys and of all things!

Some green tea powder I have been looking all over for! My supply that I had bought in Portland before the move was gone and she went out and found it for me! I am so jazzed! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You are so totally awesome! In Japanese URESHI!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I've finally redecorated. How do you like it? it's Christy's newest kit Tropical Sorbet. I have some Hawaii pictures that need to be scanned and scrapped, and this kit will be perfect along with the Conservatory Series. Butternug Squash has a bunch of stuff getting ready to go. New challenges and a few tutorials. I tried out one and did this great layout of Bryce with it.
So how do you like it? I'm hooked now I can't wait to try a few more.
Now Melany can't say I'm neglecting my blog. I'll be sure to write more later.

For The Sake of Bread

Or at least something to do while I can't breath enough to get more than two hours sleep at a time. I found the NY Times website's video on the "No Knead Bread" It has a rise time of 12 hours or more, but other than that it is really simple. I guess if I want to try it I better go look for that cast iron dutch oven that is still packed in a box in the basement.

I've been told!

That I'm neglecting my blog. Yes Melany your right! Things as always have been busy. In the last 2 weeks we have been to so many doctor appointments we need a week to rest now. Phil has been having some lower abdominal pains so he finally! got to the doctors for some testing. Turns out he has Type 2 Diabetes. It was out of control, but had nothing to do with his pain. So it was another doctor, and another test, and more blood, and another test. So far it looks like there's no cancer which is a good thing. They did find something in his intestines and removed it. He's feeling better now so we're not sure if that was causing the pain or just having some time off work gave him a rest. I have to say though going back to work on Monday will be more of a rest for him than all the doctors and tests in the last 2 weeks. His blood sugar is in control now which is good, and all we have to do is wait on one more result on a blood test.
Saturday Bryce participated in the AWANA Games, Spark-O-Rama. His team got Second Place! I'm working on a layout right now for that. I'm sure out of 200 pictures I should find some good ones to do layouts with. Don't you think?
