sunday chattering and worms! (edited)

wow! my internet was down this morning.. I hate to admit it, but this had a very adverse effect on me.. in that, it like, TICKED me off. but.. ♪♪lalala♪♪... i'm over it now.. its working again!
so yesterday was quite the day! I met up with Natalea, She came all the way out to see me! and we headed out to a bunch of sweet little shopping places, and had a good time. We went to TGIFS for lunch and sat talking for a long time about our crazy families.. Ok.. maybe crazy isnt the right word, maybe Bizarre is a better term! any ways, at one point, she was laughing so absolutely hysterically she was crying! and.. people were looking at us.. (I'm sure they were wishing that they were having as much fun!!) I did get a great picture of her with tears running down her face, and i'm DYING to post it, but I'll be nice.... (geez!)
(a little edit here.. she told me I could post it!!)

so after lunch we shopped around some more.. we both bought the new Artful blogger and where woman create issues, and a bunch of other stuff, well, nat bought stuff, I bought a little metal tin and some wooden thread spools! thats it! Then on the way home we stopped and got rootbeer floats.. so yummy. We had a really fun day. Shes getting ready to go to Georgia this week.. I'm so jealous.. I wish I was going too!
poor natalea, she had to put up with the almost 100 phone calls I recieved while we were out.. work related.. foster parent reporting a runaway, the police, one of our youth care workers, who I thought was one of my sons and called him babe when i answered the phone! And several phone calls from my kids, one when my son Tony, who just bought a new (new to him) car and put in on the road friday , was heading to niagara falls and his poor new car caught on fire!!! yes.. never a dull moment in the life of a neroni! nat has seen that first hand now!

When I got home I found two large boxes on my front porch! I had done a one to one pinkeep swap with Cindy Owens of thimbleprimsstudio, OMG... Look at the sweet little doll pinkeep she made me. I just adore it. and not only that, she sent a second box, filled up with all sorts of artsy fartsy supplies and some magazines as well as a book that I cant wait to start reading called "where the blind horse sings", about an animal sanctuary. Thank you soo much Cindy.. youre a doll! You should all check out her new blog too.. she is so creative and makes the sweetest dolls!
Here is a picture (a not so good one.. bad lighting) of the pinkeep I made for cindy! I definitely think I get the better end of this swap! I hope she likes hers half as much as I like the one she made!


And while we're at show and tell, I should show you these too.. I did an altered poker chip / circus token swap at the fairie zine.. these are the things I sent out. Had a blast making these.. I would never in a million years have considered altering a poker chip or of making a circus token! This is one of the things i love about blog land.. the inspiration and challanges are so good for all of us creative souls!
WORMS!!
Have I ever mentioned that i hate worms??? yeah, I really hate worms.. they make me want to puke.. really, they gross me out just thinking about them.. they dont have a face, you cant tell what theyre looking at! ... If they had a face I probably could handle them a little better, cause, snakes dont bother me.. (I dont like them, but they dont cause panic in me... ) worms do though. so last night we went to our friends house to play cards with the Flanagans and Fellers.. but when it was time to go home, it had been raining..... and THE WORMS CAME UP OUT OF THE GROUND AND THERE WERE FREAKEN A MILLION OF THEM STRETCHING THEIR LONG NASTY SELVES ALL OVER THE PLACE ACROSS THE SIDE WALK AND I HAD TO WALK TO THE CAR!!! I ALMOST DECICED TO STAY OVER NIGHT! It was awful... there was almost no where to walk.. and I had sandals on!!! oh my little heart was just beating so fast... and.. guess what every one else was doing while I was about having a heart attack... yeah.. they were laughing.. laughing i tell ya! I could have stepped on one of them slimey thangs and slipped and then I would have fallen down and landed on 20,000 or so.. I have a big body.. and they were everywhere.. my hands might had touched one.. OH gosh.. just thinking about it gives me the heebie jeebies~~ hmmmph!!

so Iguess thats all for today folks.. I suppose its 2:40 and I should probably get dressed!!! see ya's later!

You are freaking me out with the worm description. I don't like them either. We had to dissect them in biology class and I shiver to think about it. Hope that image isn't burned into your retinas. Glad you had a good time otherwise. Have a great week!

I'm laughing so much about the worm story! you are right, they are freaky when you think about it, with no faces. I kinda like holding them and watching the way they wiggle but haven't done this for more than 20 years. We don't see them any more since we're in a drought and get very little rain. you should come move here and your worm problems will be solved!

how great you got to meet Natalea! She's so sweet and cute isn't she!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I am with you. I do not like worms either. I know you guys had a great time. I wish I could have been there I know we would have had a blast...m..

Valarie said...

Okay, I can see why Natalia laughed until she cried. I was laughing so hard at your worm story, that my son had to check and see if I was okay. You cheered up my whole day, I am glad you are safe from those slimy things. xxoo
