Just thought I'd show you...here's the little siphon I got for the ten gallon fish tank...
...and the new bookcase box standing in the hallway covered in plastic.
This is the view I've been seeing on these chilly, sunny mornings...
...as Karma takes in the rays on the carpet by the open porch door.
She does turn around once in a while, so I don't always have the belly-butt view--ROFL!
I've been stamping the backs of the bookmarks. Grouped them up in piles according to color so I could get a somewhat appropriate ink color on the backs.
Leah and I decided to stamp one along each long edge...
...the shop web address and the "handmade by" stamp. This way the bookmark is never upside-down--hehe! ;)
Meanwhile--the roofers were actually back on my end of the building yesterday--tada!
At least they put down plywood to drive the crane-machines (not sure what the proper name would be) across the lawn so they don't tear up the grass as much.
Needless to say, Miss Karma had a very stressful day yesterday. Spent a good portion of it under the bed. Quiet today--no roofers. No idea how far they got.
I made it about halfway thru the bookmark stamping as of last night. These are ready to go! :)
A touch of whimsy--hehe! Since I messed this one up--and then made it even worse trying to fix it...
...I claimed it as "mine :)" with red liquid pearl on the back--ROFL! This would be a good one to include in the first batch when we try to see if they laminate properly. The red will make it easy to find. ;)
Well, I just sent off the letter today to the collection agency to cease the phone calls and contact me by mail or I will turn them in to the FDCPA. I quit answering the phone after I talked to that woman. I have been getting 2-3 calls a day with nothing left on the answering machine, so I figure it is them because anyone else would leave a message. They start about 8-8:30am and can go till 9:30pm--so far. So, hopefully, after this coming week I will be able to answer the land line again. Then--if it IS the collection agency I will contact the FDCPA and report them. And never fear--I won't hesitate to hang up on them. ;)
It's only been in the 50's during the day all week. My goodness that was quick! What happened to the 60's and 70's? I was hoping for a long, leisurely cool fall after this hot, sticky, damp summer. I hope we still have a long fall ahead of us. We should still have some 60-70 days, but if it's in the 50's, I guess I'll take it. (Like I have a choice--hehe!) The leaves are going to turn early this year, I bet. Sure do like the cooler weather, tho! :)
Hope everybody is having a really great weekend! Keep smiling!! :):)
