Super busy morning....


Just stopping in to say Happy Monday. It is 7:10 a.m. and I have already made lemon cookies, did two loads of laundry, colored my hair then washed and styled it. Plus several other items on my to do list. It's going to be a busy day. Busy, busy, busy!

So much rain.....


It sprinkled on and off yesterday and late yesterday even a nice steady rain set in. The kind that just lulls you to sleep. 


After supper, I grabbed my book and my blankie and snuggled up on the couch to read while hubby watched TV. 


We went to bed earlier than usual so we could go to sleep listening to the rain. Every time I woke up it was still raining. I was wide awake at 4:30 so I got up and headed to the couch again thinking I might be able to doze a little longer. 


It didn't work. It was raining so hard the rain kept me awake. I finally just got up at 5:30. 
I am running out to Walmart to pick up some last minute supplies I need for an upcoming trip. Then I am picking up some of the grandchildren to come spend the night. Hope everybody has a great weekend.

Throwback Thursday



My Garretson ancestor's home town of Nellis, West Virginia in 1926. Daddy would have been 3 at the time they lived here. 


My great grandfather the Reverend Patrick Lawson Garretson. 


My Grandpa Garretson, Aunt Stella, Aunt Elsie, Grandma Garretson, Aunt Dorothy and Stella's boys. 


My Uncle Sebert Garretson. He was only 16 in these pictures. He worked in the coal mines and died when he was in his early 20's. I can't recall what happened but I believe he was killed in the coal mines.

The rest of the set has arrived..


I ordered a new bag to keep my craft project in that I am working on. It always involves at least 2 or 3 skeins of yarn, some plastic canvas along with my kit of needles, scissors, thimble, etc. Well. I finally found the perfect bag. I got it yesterday. It is the Thirty-One Essential Storage tote. I had a customer who didn't want her monthly special, so she let me add this to her order and I got it for just
$5.00. I am in love. I can think of tons of uses for this bag, but this one is for my crafts. I already had the mini zipper pouch that goes with it. I can't wait to start crafting with my supplies all organized and handy. 


You will recall last week that I posted all my coordinating bags for my upcoming trip. This is what I have so far in the Navy Wave and coordinating Paradise Pop patterns.  


I got my order in yesterday for a catalog show where I was the hostess. These were my free items from the party. Now I have everything I want in my two favorite patterns. I love the little frog coin purse. And the nail file is the Navy Wave pattern on one side and the Paradise Pop like my billfold on the other side.


I am very excited to use all my new stuff.

A couple of surprises...


I love surprises. Yesterday, I got a couple of them. I stopped at the mail box on my way home and found a card from my sister. My nickname since I was 18 has been B and that is what all my nieces and nephews call me. My sister and put this in the card. She said she was somewhere and saw it and knew I would love it. And I do. It is just too cute. 


Then a friend of mine stopped by. She had bought me this t-shirt to help support a local girls fight with cancer. She knows believe is one of my favorite words. 


I loved both of my surprises.
