Thank You!

I was fortunate to spend yesterday with friends painting one of their classrooms and got a treat of going to lunch together and had a wonderful crab cake on the Maine Coast......and then at my request.....Abacus in Boothbay in the afternoon.....this is one of my favorite stores.....of course I have many favorite stores on line and brick & mortar! LOL

This card (for the young man that was so helpful yesterday) is part of my bag from Abacus their bags are beautiful....grey with silver leafing! Oh to have a stack of these! LOL The stamps are from my new favorite stamp store Paper Trey Ink I have never really been a acrylic stamp gal but these are the best! The designs are amazing too!
Well kids it is Friday and the boss will be home this evening so guess I better get going if I'm going to finish this weeks house project before he gets home....the downstairs know all that stuff shoved in drawers and linen closets and under the sink that might not get used in my lifetime....well it is gone!

Strawberries Again!

OK, so what on earth was I thinking? More Strawberries?

It's all her fault and I'm sticking to my story! My sister made me do it! Lets see on Tuesday of last week I picked about 24lbs and cleaned, sliced and froze them, on Wednesday I went and picked another flat.....and pawned that flat off on some friends.....Today Sunday I went and picked another flat....another 8.62 lbs......only because my sister said she wanted to go and hadn't been since she picked strawberries in high school some 40+/- years I came right home and cleaned them and sliced them....tip: (I use an egg slicer and force them through the wires with my thumbs, don't try and use the plunger as it will break the wires but works slick if you use your thumbs and is much quicker!)

My berries from today will be making a trek to upstate NY for Jamie and Rob! And I think I'll sneak some to Sirago to I know he loves his fruit and veggies!

Well folks I'm off to pack Jack's bags he is in NJ this week.
