Might as well do this....

Ok we got our taxes done and obviously the IRS thinks charlie and I should pay to bail out the big companies, we got gouged.
This one is going to hurt - so expect to see me slowly go crazy with boredom from staying home and cooking, I love to cook but it just never turns out good.

I will be making stuff in my own little craft room...oh the horrors, I really hate the IRS. I never understood why we can't just work and keep our money and do our own saving and spending, if everyone did this the world would be a better place!
Just my opinion.
So you can look forward to boring little videos of me making animals out of pipe cleaners and styrofoam...recycled newspaper and tin cans, oh I could make tin can wind chimes, yeah that's the ticket!
Oh thank gosh summer is on its way, all I need is a pina colada and my swimming pool, I will be content right in my own backyard,

What was it Dorothy said....
"If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard."
Yep, thats where you'll find me.

With the way things are going it feels like a depression and I have been trying to cook more at I have been watching cooking stuff on youtube...I came across Clara, she does depression cooking, things are not this bad for us but I really enjoy watching her videos and hearing her stories of the depression she lived makes me miss my grandma but I know she is in heaven watching over me!

Oh Holy Macaroni!!

Tanya made the copper etched necklace, the tag says "art and life are one" she wire wrapped each link, when I wear it I can feel the love and it has vintage peace sign, freaking cool! Colleen Myl made the beaded ball necklace, the colors are so neat, magenta and teal, I love that from the moment she made it!!! The bling peace sing is a gift from Mary N, and the peaceful heart is from Colleen Mcg, I love my jewelry!!!
Colleen Mcg made me a jean jacket with a peace sign, oh my gosh it is the most amazing gift, she can take beads and turn them into something so special, I can't wait to wear this!! I love love this and I love love her!!! She makes me laugh, we have such fun together! My mentor, my friend!

Oh my lord Mandy!! She really out did herself, I got a whole travel kit sewn by her, I can't wait to pack my suitcase now!! But I had to get this coffee cup pincushion on the blog...she recycles old sweaters into pincushions and purses, (she can make a small fortune if she would sell these) but mine is special it has a hand needle felted peace sign on it, Love this!
More stuff..a summer dress from Mary F, a cat paperweight from Mary N, A bracelet form Pat k that did not make the picture because I had it on my body! A silky sweet night gown from Pat S, a scrapbook purse made by Janet H, Lots of supper cool summer shirts from my Mom in law Margaret!! Oh and how cool is that copper peace sign that will hang in my backyard, that is from super cool Ronna!!!

Wow, bingo was soooo much fun, we laughed and giggled and 3 of us won, Mandy, Patty, and Colleen!! The rest of us, Me, Mary, Pat S, Ronna still had fun and next time will be our lucky day! They spoiled me rotten with the most amazing gifts and lunch (thank you Pat K)!
Later Charlie and I and Chris and Mary went out to dinner at Ventano's (yummy) and then gambled, Mary won 400.00 on wheel of fortune and Chris won some at black jack, but nothing for charlie and I, thats ok, as long as our guests had fun!
I have to say THANK YOU to everyone who sent me cards and made me gifts, I just can't remember a birthday filled with so much LOVE, Although my 40th was pretty special with the cruise we went on with Mary and Joe, gotta love that one!! I was so depressed when I turned 40 but over the past 4 years my 40's have turned out to be something so wonderful becuase of my friends!
I will be sending out Thank you cards, you are all so amazing, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Hugs Love and Peace Out!

March Madness!

I got the green bug!

I am so addicted to these peas, and I hate peas, but you can't tatse the peas just the wasabi!

If you like to dip your prime rib in horseradish until your nose runs and your eyes bulge out then you will like these peas! Good snack to curb your appitite. Also I bought a little pot of clovers at target for a dollar, you just water them and bam, little clovers in 2 days! Hope they bloom before I kill them, I was not born with a green thumb!
Oh, I also broke my pink cropadile so I am going to buy the green one!
