Flip Flops

Every year on this past Friday, my mom, sister and sort of sister spend the day yard saling and going to a huge art show. We had a really fun time!
I made all of them a pair of flip flops.

Mike and the boys went to the annual hydroplane races this weekend. I sent some of my new huggies with them to sell and on Saturday, Mike sold all but one! But, he came home with some special orders and I was up late last night and up early this morning to get them all done for today. The last time I spoke with him, he had 3 left. He had 15 yesterday and 15 today. They went over really well down there! They are also handing out my business cards, so maybe I'll have more orders. I think once it cools off, the boobie slippers will start selling too. My hand hurt last night and is hurting a bit today too I did so much crocheting yesterday. I may have to soak it and see if that helps it any.

The Sears repair person for the refrig. is scheduled to be here between 8am and 5pm Monday! At least the cable company narrows it down to 4 hours. Do they not realize that people have jobs and can't be home all day waiting for them?? It really irritates me what they call customer service! NOT!

Well, the boat races are over now. Dave Villwok wins again. He isn't who I was cheering for, but my boat, Myers Auto Tech., was having trouble all day. Myers is the company that did all the work on my Montero this past year. They are awesome! If you live in the Tri-Cities and really want to have your vehicles worked on by a great group of people, call them. They have treated us so great and my car was not an easy job! The boats go to Seattle for this next week. That's always an interesting race to watch.

I've really gotta go rest my hand. I have lots of typing to do tomorrow at work.

It's Tuesday....

Well, it's Tuesday and the week did not start off very well.

On Sunday, we noticed that our refrigerator/freezer was having trouble. Monday morning we removed all the freezer items and put them in the large freezer out in our shed. The outside edges were getting hot, around the freezer only. I called to get a repair person here and they can't show up until July 30th! A week away! I'm thinking, ok the refrig part still works and they told me that it won't catch on fire before they get here.

Well, yesterday, the refrig. section just stops working! So hubby goes to get ice bags, the boys bring in a couple of coolers and we fill up the camp trailer refrig. too. Now, we are camping inside the house!! I'm so not happy with Sears right now. We've been paying for an extended warranty on appliances and I'm thinking that it's time to get them looked at and close them. Warranties should give us a priority of turn-around time on broken items. Expecially, when it's the only refrig. we have. I don't think I'll be buying any more appliances from them after this. I'm sure I could have bought from a local company and gotten it repaired much sooner.

The hydroplane boat races are this weekend and I'm staying home this year. Mike is going on Saturday with a buddy. For some reason, Mike's company decided that Saturday is a 21 and over only day. It's really the wrong day to do that, since all the kid stuff is done on Friday and Saturday and hardly nothing on Sunday, just races and the air show. On Sunday, he is taking the boys down there. The company has a private viewing area and with a banquet permit, they can drink inside it. We used to be in charge of getting all the food, drink, BBQ and permit down there, year after year, since we liked to get there really early to park close. After many years of babysitting drunken adults, seeing that they get home on time and watching my own kids, I'm done with it. For now, I'll just sit at home and watch them on TV if they are on there. I'll post pictures later of what it looks like down there on the river.

Well, I'm hoping that the rest of the week goes better. I'm off the work and the post office this morning. I needed to mail out something yesterday and with the refrig. problem, I never got there.

I hope you all have a good week!

Breast Cancer Walk

I am working on a bunch of stuff for a friend of mine in Pennsylvania. She is making money for a breast cancer walk that she is doing. She is having a craft and bake sale on July 21st. She's going to sell some of my boobie items there too.

She has a store on Etsy, like I do and has some really cute stuff.
Please visit her
store and buy, buy, buy. It's for a great cause!

It's been really hot here! Over 100 for about 4 days or more now. It's supposed to be 108-110 for the next few days. I'm not going to ask for rain though. Some buddies of mine in Texas did that and are just now able to walk in their yards, I think.

You all have a wonderful rest of the week!

Lator, Gators and Gatorettes!

Andy's Birthday Picnic

We had a fun day at the park for Andy's birthday. Several of his friends came and some of our family were able to come.

Here's the cake my sister made. There is one candle in it already. The red and yellow are the colors for the boy's high school.

There's the birthday boy in the yellow shirt. He got his hair cut recently in a mohawk. Not my idea. It's a football thing.
This is my dad and mom.
We got Andy a new bike and that's Tyke standing behind him.

At 1:04pm today, it's official, Andy will be 14 years old! WooHoo!
I sure feel better today than I did 14 years ago.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend!

Lisa's New Creation

You'll have to see this to believe it!
I'm such a bad influence on my crochet buddies!

Wednesday, July 04, 2007


It's the 4th of July already! I can't believe it. This year seems to be going so quickly. I'm already thinking of things I need to do for the big holiday season.

Well, I think I'm going over the edge with these boob things. I think that once the weather starts getting cooler, I'll be selling a lot of these.

Hot Days are Coming

I heard that it's supposed to get up to 107 by Thursday this week! Summer took it's time getting here, but it's here now.

It's July already and Andy's birthday is this Friday. He'll be 14. We can hardly believe it. He wants everyone to get together out at Hood Park again this year for a bbq, swimming and fun. It was fun last year, except for the fact that mom was in the hospital. She's doing fine now so they plan to be there this year.

I've been swapping up a storm lately. I'm down to one square a month swap until December and we are starting a Christmas in July swap right now. I may make up the rest of my squares and send them out by August. That way I can start working on my holiday cards. Yes, I said holiday cards. If I don't at least get them designed by early September, I'll never get them all done and mailed. I'm sure some of you would enjoy getting them earlier than last year.

I have friends in Texas that are getting very wet this past week. They hadn't had rain in ages and now it's terrible for them. One friend has had a tree limb come through her roof. Fortunately, it did not fall onto the couch. Hang in their ladies and I hope it dries up for you soon.

Well, I guess it's about time to finish getting ready for work. I'm only working 20 hours a week, which is nice. I'm doing 5 hours a day, 4 days a week. That leaves me with Fridays off, except for this week. I'll be off on Wednesday for the 4th.
