peek a boo... eye see you!  you see me?  I have a stye.. this is from last night.. its uglier this morning.  but it doesnt hurt unless I touch it, so hands off!.    I look like a bug eyed monster! lol!  
so first off.. I have to apologize as I havent been out doing my normal blog visits.. Ive been busy with life.. working, working in the yard, family, you know.. same old same old!  
I'm excited as this coming weekend is memorial day weekend and of course thats the kick off for summer.  Im looking forward to beach days...  soon to come!  we may picnic at the lake this weekend, but wont get to the beach yet.  its really not supposed to be that warm this weekend.  only 70 on monday.  which is great really.. just not beach worthy for the family.. (it actually is for me though.. lol!)
 so Im assuming that a bunch of us will congregate at the lake for hotdogs and hamburgers and assorted other yummyness!
I didnt go to weight watchers this week, but did get weighed at the drs on monday and was down another pound.  however this morning I weighed in up a pound.. so I have to behave this weekend!  I will make sure I have low points goodies to munch on!
hoping to get these bears that I've been working on forever finished this weekend too...  I need to stop getting side tracked!

Now, on to something fun!  I had promised a patriotic ornie swap a couple months ago.  Again, like the nest swap, I want to keep this simple.  so the game plan is one partner each and one ornie each.  no extras unless its just a little something.  Just create an awesome little patriotic ornament and send it to your partner!   email me your name and make sure I have working links to your blogs and a working email so I can pass the info on to your partners.  Im going to match people up as they sign up to make it easier for myself.   some of you with the google + sites, we cant all access them for some reason, so if thats what you have, please make sure that your email address works.  I ended up leaving a couple people out of the swap last time because I couldnt contact them.
so, I will take sign ups for the next couple days. email me here;  
You may hear from me with partner info before I even close the swap because like I said, Im going to match people as they join.   please be sure to create something awesome and mail it to your partner by June 20th.
thats it!  I dont think I forgot anything..
OK.. I have to go feed the bird and water some plants.. 
have a happy day girlie pies!!

Hey Viv! Hope that eye feels better. Must be something in the air - literally. I've never had allergies before, but the past few weeks my eyes have been so itchy and sore. Lots of Visine!

Theresa said...

Oh girlie... that eye looks painful! Take care of it and get all better quick, do you hear me:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

I am so sad! I missed this swap when I went on my road trip. Oh, well! I guess I can't be greedy, but I sure love these swaps!
