Quilt With Us

Scroogie/MD's Blog (32)


Well I Googled my name, first and last. Plenty popped up but not me. Googled first maiden and last, nothing. Googled my screen name still nothing until 4 pages in but not anything that most people would associate with me. Yippee. This does not mean I am safe I realize but it does make me feel safer.

Oreos and hot weather

I like Oreo cookies but not hot weather but I have found out that Oreos like hot weather. My sister and I started building giant Oreo cookies before Double Stuffs came on the market. You just keep eating one side of the cookie and piling the filling together higher and higher. Anyway I have found out this week while it has been so hot out (and I don't have A/C) that the Oreo filling peels away from the chocolate cookie part way easier in hot weather than when its cool out. You can really build… Continue

Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

This does make sense. See, my goal in life is to stay ahead of Walmart (at least as far as Holidays go) and I heard that our local Walmart received 2 tractor trailer loads of Thanksgiving stuff already. Labor day... never heard of it I guess and Halloween (only the best holiday of all ... no pressure on this one just buy candy its always the right gift) is going to get tucked in there somewhere I guess. But in order to stay ahead Merry Christmas. Now when you see Easter greetings at… Continue

TGIF!!!!! and nothing planned that has to be done this weekend! Yippee!!! Yahooo!!! Is been one heck of a hectic week (meetings to attend 3 nights this week all school or kid related).... So I'm a little excited about the thought of nothingness. I may even sew. Imagine that!

Why do I even bother to get up on Mondays? Someone please tell me.
Today DH went to dr's twice because we got the time confused. When he did get there they told him that because of the type of work that he does (farms) he should keep his splint on another week (UGH!) It looks great other than that though.
My mail truck got towed in again. This time it was the transmission.
What a welcome back from vacation.

This will last 5 minutes!

My DD has gone officially insane. It has taken her at least 2 hours to make this dog look like this (very nice I might add) but he will be his dirty grungy self 5 minutes after she lets him loose... Betcha!

The really goofy part is he sat there nicely and allowed her to do this!

I survived :-D

I survived a week of Girl Scout camp. I got to hang out with the boys all week. The male children of the volunteers need someplace for the boys to be so they have their own unit at camp. I had that unit. We fish and hike and fish and playing the creek and fish and play in the dirt and fish and eat watermelon and catch bugs and did I mention fish? I have untangled lines and people, unhooked fish, found shoes and socks and caught salamanders and worms and built k'nex vehicles.

There are 2… Continue

Camp :D

I wish I had a picture. You would never believe it. I have the boys at Girl Scout camp this week and today must have been dirt day. While some of us (ok I started it) were looking for the big snapping turtle in the pond some of the little guys were playing off to the side of the pavilion. This is normal. Then several of them started playing in the old fire circle. They were black before they were done. They looked like they had on war paint. They had a ton of fun though ;-)

Girl Scout Camp

Well not getting much sewing done on my "vacation". It is my week to volunteer at camp and as I am hanging out with the male children of the volunteers it is too dirty for me to even do any hand sewing. Oh well there's always next week.

"Losing" our puppy

We still have him but for the second time this week we thought we lost our puppy. 1st time he was sleeping in the bathroom. This time he escaped from a kennel we put him in at a cousin's house while we went out to lunch. I am probably one of the few people now who you will hear say I can't wait for him to get big. He's 30+ lbs at 11 1/2 weeks but I can't wait until he gets huge. Maybe then I won't have to worry that someone will try to steal him. It's sad but right now whenever he gets out of… Continue

At the moment I am doing pretty good at living up to my claim of only being 12. I am playing on her, texting, listening to iTunes and having a snack all at the same time. Gotta love it when you're home alone for a little while ;-)

Holy Cow!

My DD is on vacation. DH came home and let the dog out this evening. We went to let him back in and couldn't find him. Scoured the neighborhood. Checked under all the bushes. Everything. Found the lump an hour later asleep in the bathroom. We were calling the little %&*#@*% and he NEVER WOKE UP!. All I can say now is glad he was here.

Well its hot here and muggy and I hate that combo. I would outside (I deliver mail) and it was just a yucky kind of day.

Then.... I found a box of ice cream cones laying scattered in the road. No kidding. They fell off the top of the Schwan's truck. I call the driver and told him I found them ... He said guess they're yours now. So I had one then put the rest in the freezer of one of my customers. I told them where I got them but it didn't bother them either. ;-)

Nothing like free ice… Continue

Age or lack there of ;-)

Okay.. It's been an interesting day. So to combat my mood I'm showing my age (or lack there of) and sitting in front of my iMac blasting iTunes full volume. I only claim to be 12 so what's coming out of it should surprise no one.... Seether... Nickelback... Papa Roach....Hinder.... Linkin Park and last but far from least Theory of a Deadman ;-) I will still be blasting this tomorrow only via headphones at work. (If they knew what I listen too they would never believe it.)

Yippee This Monday was a little better than last Monday ;-)

Husband is still a little goofy but this week he has a reason (3/5 of his right hand is immobilized)
iPod died again
mail truck worked all day
and bra wires are still whole
I don't have a headache
and last but not least I do have adult type beverages in the house. (purchased at a discount... I was kidding the register guy... he was outside playing with my puppy so I asked if I got a discount and he gave me 15% off)

I'm surrounded!!!

My mother and DD left for the beach today for a week. They left me with my Dad my DS and my wounded DH. Even the new puppy is male. When I pointed this out to my DD when she called to tell me that they arrived at their destination she just laughed at me and told me the female cat will keep them all in line. NOT FUNNY!

DD + new puppy+ cell phone= lots of pictures
I thought this one was really cute though.

Thank you

It is so nice to know that my DH is not the only one who will not sit still. He's not misbehaving but he's not exactly behaving either. He should be fine when all is healed but not knowing what he will/is getting into is going to drive me nuts until it is a little better. At least you all understand ;-)

DH's Hand Again...

Well we went to the doctor's this morning. (Can you feel the frustration coming?)

DH was supposed to be having an abscess in the knuckle of his right middle finger cleaned out. The doctor told him ahead of time it will be sore for a couple days but that should be it.

What actually happened is they opened it up and found scar tissue on his tendon and to remove it they had to cut the tendon. He came out of the back 45 minutes later wrapped from his fingertips to his wrist.… Continue
