Saturday - PJ Day?

I hope it's PJ Day!

I am pretending it is!

Sometimes we just need to kick back, 
relax and enjoy some leisure time.

I have tons to do 
and I will get to most of it today, 
just at my own pace.

I have all my emails answered, replied to.

The laundry is patient. 
It always waits for when I have time or feel up to it. 

The dust is lazy 
and doesn't jump on me 
when I walk through a room.

The vacuum stands as if a guard of the carpet.
Ready at a moments notice, when I have time.

The broom gets a regular workout in the kitchen.
Only works as hard as I make it.

So I guess with all this considered, 
it must be PJ Day
and I can sip my coffee, 
prop my feet up 
and just 
enjoy the day.

I hope each of you gets to enjoy 
PJ Day!

Friday Fun - Smile

It's Friday....
Are you ready to smile????


George  Phillips, an elderly man from
Walled Lake, Michigan
, was  going up
to bed, when his wife told him that he'd
left the light on in  the garden shed,
which she could see from the bedroom
George  opened the back door to go turn
off the light, but saw that there were
people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who  asked
"Is someone in your house?"

He  said "No," but some people are
breaking into my garden shed and
stealing  from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All
patrols are busy, you should lock your
doors and an officer will be along when
one is available"

George  said, "Okay." 
He hung up the phone and counted to 30.
Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds
ago because there were people stealing
things from my shed.
Well, you don't  have to worry about
them now because I just shot and killed
them both;  the dogs are eating them
right now," and he hung up.

Within  five minutes, six Police Cars, a
, a Helicopter,  two Fire
Trucks, a Paramedic and an Ambulance
showed up at the Phillips'  residence,
and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the  Policemen said to George,
"I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George  said, "and I thought you said
there was nobody available!"


A distraught senior citizen 
phoned her doctor's
"Is it true," she wanted to know,
"that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?"
"'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor
told her.
There was a moment of silence Before the senior lady replied, 
"I'm wondering, then,
just how serious is my condition
because this prescription is
  'NO REFILLS'..."

An older gentleman was
on the operating table
awaiting surgery
and he insisted that his son,
a renowned surgeon,
perform the operation.
As he was about to get the
anesthesia, he asked to speak
to his son.
"Yes, Dad, what is it?"
"Don't be nervous, Son,
do your best,
and just remember,
if it doesn't go well,
if something happens to me,
your Mother
is going to come and
live with you and your wife..."

The older we get,
the fewer things
seem worth waiting for in line,
mostly because we forgot why we
were waiting in line in the first place
When you are dissatisfied
and would like to go back to youth,
just remember Algebra.
First you forget names,
then you forget faces.
Then you forget to pull up
your zipper...
 it's even worse when 
you forget to pull it down.
Two guys, one old, one young, 
are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart 
when they collide.
The old guy says to the young guy,
"Sorry about that.  I'm
 looking for my wife,
 and I guess I 
wasn't paying attention
to where I was going."
The young guy says, "That's OK, it's a
I'm looking for my wife, too...
I can't find her and I'm getting a little
The old guy says,
"Well, maybe I can help you find her...
what does she look like?"
The young guy says,
"Well, she is 27 yrs. old, tall,
with red hair,
blue eyes, is buxom...wearing no bra,
has long legs,
 and is
wearing short shorts.
What does your wife look like?'
To which the old guy says, "Doesn't
 --- let's look for yours."

And this final one ...
"Lord, please
keep Your arm around my shoulder
and Your hand over my mouth!"


I hope you smiled!!!

Thursday Thoughts - Artfire's new Banner Choices


Seems like ages since I actually typed something for this blog. It's always hurry and promote some things and get ready for work..

This morning, I don't want to promote. Don't want to go to work either, but that is beside the point! LOL

Just recovering from being sick. When you have health issues and you get sick, it takes forever to recover. No fun. I was actually mad about it last week.

But God is helping me get better and I have my voice again.

Fall is upon us. I had propane delivered yesterday so I won't be freezing when it gets cold. Every year I think I am going to buy a wood stove as back up and every year... I don't!

There are many craft projects I thought I would have done by now. I hope to knock some of them out this weekend. Find one craft show to go to to sell Christmas ornaments and then I will be good.

Do you sell on Artfire?  They have done away with our personalized banners.. We now have UGLY, super UGLY banners. Remember when PCs were just coming to our homes? Remember when we were so excited about typing on a color background? "Stationery" That is what Artfire's banners look like. And we all have that UGLY orange across the top! Now how that makes the mobile app work better is beyond me... If it is ugly, does it work better???? I don't think so!

Then there is the "catalog". Really? If you just stopped by the site are you likely to click "catalog". Would you think it was the items in that shop or items on the site? Anyway, I hope people will still shop there. Not everyone shops from their phone Artfire. Really they don't!

Well, I have shared my thoughts for the day. Now it's time to get ready for work.

I hope you have had a wonderful day. 

If you do sell on artfire, post your thoughts on those ugly banners.

JESUS - Sunday Spiritual

Sunday Spiritual

Read at least the first two lines....Never thought of it!

Jesus died over 2000 years ago.
Nobody has ever referred to HIM as the late Jesus,
Not even the heathens.
Nowhere in history.
Nowhere has HE ever been referred to in the past tense
HE 'is' the Living God!

When Jesus died on the cross HE was thinking of you!
If you are one of the 3% who will stand up for HIM, share this.

"May God Smile on You today."


"To whom much is given; much is required."

Friday Fun

Maybe we can find your smile....

A husband went to the police station to report his missing wife:

Husband : I’ve lost my wife, she went shopping yesterday and has still not come home.

Sergeant : What is her height ?

Husband : Oh, 5 something . . . 

Sergeant :  Build?

Husband : Not slim, not really fat.

Sergeant : Color of eyes?

Husband : Never noticed.

Sergeant : Color of hair?

Husband : Changes according to season.

Sergeant : What was she wearing?

Husband : Dress/suit/blue jeans -- I don’t remember exactly.

Sergeant : Did she go in a car?

Husband : Yes.

Sergeant : What kind of car was it?

Husband :  2015 Corvette Stingray 3LT with the Z51 Performance Package, shark gray metallic paint, with the 6.2 litre V8 engine with Direct Injection generating 460 HP.  8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, and GT bucket seats, and has a very thin scratch on the front left door.……………. at this point the husband started crying...

Sergeant : Don't worry sir.......we’ll find your car.


Did you smile?
