Wednesday Number Six

Once again I will start with Joyce HODGE PODGE. And at the end of I will do two photo memes.
WORDLESS WEDNESDAY and ABC WEDNESDAY

1. Summer is upon us this week in the Northern hemisphere. Tell us three things on your summer bucket list.
I believe I will have both of my rugs done before end of summer, so there one off my bucket list.
Get my pass port. I live next to Canada. I love riding the ferry across the KOOTENAY LAKE
Then hopeful I will get a chance to start on some hot pot holders. The rugs are last year Christmas present and for up coming Yule I'm doing the hot pot holders, and I want them done before Christmas.
Ok one more. Start to paint rocks my grand daughter will be three the following spring, and I thought I would paint her 26 rocks one thing for each of the alphabets.

2. Something fun you used to do as a kid in the summertime?
Play and play. Also I showed my horse Taurus and water ski.

3. Rooftop or backyard? Why? I don't know any one around here spend time on the roof. Not many flat roof to much snow. So I would have to say back yard.

4. Do you read food labels? Place importance on them? Make an effort to find out/care about where your food comes from?
I should read it more careful. The main thing I look is the salt or sodium content. I have high blood pressure.

5. A song you'll have on repeat this summer?
Not sure

6. Insert your own random thought here.
A thing I look forward is two new grand daughter up coming this summer.
Yesterday I tuck under all the loose fabric and threads on locker hook rugs.
This up coming weekend is my side of the family reunion. I made my quarter goal weight lost.



Wordless Wednesday fun.



My rotter cutter isn't Xyresic. I been using it quite a bit. I will finish up the locker hook rug, since there just the trim around the edge.
See I found a X word, thank you google.

The Waiting Game

This morning not quite 4 I believe it was. Notice a beautiful sunrise and went and got a few photos out of our bedroom window.
I knew later on I would have to be on liquid diet and also clean out my digestion system for my colonosphy and endoscopy. Then it will be a week after before any results.

So to about 11 I was super hungry and no soiled foods of any sort. Well the good thing the gastrologist wasn't to concern.
Not sure why but food effect my attitude. But I had to work on not being a grouch. Pretty much stayed out of the kitchen the entire day.


Frequent trips to the bathroom. So Projects wise I need something non brain. So I did anther ball of fabric for my crochet rag rug.
I honestly believe I have enough. And if I don't oh well.
I still need to finish up Sawyer and Betty locker hook rugs.


Ziggy loves to curl up on my craft project and take a snooze.
Both sons called there dad on father day. A little over 26 months ago it was just our son wishing there dad a happy fathers day.
Now it there dad wishing them a happy fathers day.

When Does It Just Pop In


Actual I'm coming a long with the crochet rag rug. I believe I have one more ball of fabric to cut. I might do the last fabric ball tomorow.
Then I should have enough to finish it off.
Then after that I need to finish up Sawyer and Betty locker hook rug.
I will then have my goals of left over project done. Not saying I don't have other projects to finish up.

This up coming Christmas I believe I'm going to make hot pot holders. And for my grand daughter Claudia I'm going to paint her own set of ABC rocks
I found this woven basket. at the good will. Well when I saw at first it had a set of children tea set. I wasn't interested in the tea set.
So I just left it and the Liz got it for me, with out the tea set.
I'm add painted rocks and giving Claudia her own personal painted rocks, this coming Yule.

Clueless where this ideal came from. From some stange reason I want to make neck ties.
Well I'm about ready to start making my next three tarot cards.
First one will be the seven of cups.
Some cards come easy for me. And each card I have a different reaction.
Question time....What was the last ideal you had just appeared out of blue?....

Today our pagan group meant at Sandpoint for a B.S section. We getting to ready to have our annual camp out.
Then next Sunday is anther organization meeting for our PAGAN PRIDE and which will be held around the fall equinox or those who are south of the equator will be spring equinox.

Almost the entire week I forgot to use my fit bit zip. Today I got it on and I didn't make my goal of 7,500 steps and I got in 5,872

Want To


I was hoping to fine a little time to spend some time at Sandpoint Beach. But I took Regis to his doctor it was time for his annual physical. He in pretty good health, except for his chronicle illness.
We stop at the library down there and we got a few DVDS
Then we stop at Walmart. Regis got one of his marvel figurine. And I got my self the stuff I need for my colonoscopy and endoscopy.

The other day when I was over at our local hospital boundary county I found a rock some one painted.
I took it down to Sandpoint and left it down there.
Haven't painted rocks for ages. But our local pagan group and I believe I mention that we're having a camp out in July.
One of our activity was rock painting. So I been gathering up different shapes and size of rocks.

Felt eating went well today. Fruits and Veggies. But not saying it been prefect. For some unknown reason I forgot to put on my fit zip bit. And also haven't been getting in my water.

A few things I would like to do this evening go for a walk, cut more fabric strips, and read my book.

Wednesday Meme Number Five

First of all Wednesday is meme day and like last Wednesday I will start of with HODGE PODGE WEDNESDAY and I wonder how our hostess JOYCE comes up with these question, well they get you to think.

1. What happen to your mail at your house? I have a special file for "bills" called "should of been taking care of yesterday" But some time it seem like my mail get toss on the dining room table. And it becomes all clutter. I swear it has a magnet and collects un-wanted and un-needed papers.

2. Something you splurge on? Any guilt associated with the splurge? I love thrift store and crafty type of things. Since I work I don't get much time to do my crafts.
The amount I spend on craft items isn't the issue. But having craft items pile up is more of issue

3. There are many, but what are two important you think a bride or groom should ask/answer before they walk down the aisle?
Are they any subject you have trouble communicating about? And what are your emotional triggers?

4. What best advice your father every give you? Sorry this one is difficult one for me. My dad and I didn't have a good relationship. But by his action I learn about helping others.

5. Your favorite movie where a father feature heavily in the storyline? Not much of movie or TV watcher

6. Insert your own random thoughts? Been working on a tarot work book and under the Empress card they have a question...Warm feeling comes to me when__________
I'm clueless why this is such a hard one to answer.
Been doing evening walk and this morning I forgot to put on my zip bit. Well and I been collecting rocks to paint for our up coming pagan camp out.
Hubby finish mowing the lawn and it looked great.

Now I will do a WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

And now it time for ABC WEDNESDAY and this week letter is "W" and I had quite a few thought of what I could do for letter "W"
And there a few things in our atmosphere that makes and change our WEATHER and that my w word.
To me the best weather is slight breeze and temp in mid 70's

It Never Total Normal

It was a pretty normal day. Although not no super rough sea's of life.
This morning I had my weigh in and up a half a pound. Still in the 210 range and start just hair under 220. So I lost 10 pounds.
We had a guess speaker on emotional eating, very interesting.

Since I'm talking about my weight I might as well put my eating. Breakfast was left over pizza, lunch was a hand full of Cheerios, and cherries. Well I took some chicken breast it smell funny and got toss in the trash. So when got home I fried a burger patty.
Then for dinner had some biscuit and sausage gravy. Then a brownie.
Doesn't look like much veggies or fruit. I usual eat enough fiber types of foods. But today mm mm, not.

Hubby had to go to the dermatologist and of crouse Bonners Ferry don't have one. So we had to drive down to Sandpoint.
To the doctor they look pretty normal, but they took a few photos of the moles and told him to come back in six months.
Then next Monday I have my thing with the stomach doctor.
I will be glad when this doctor crap is over.

Been cutting fabric strips and putting them together for the crochet rag rug. I should of had this done a long time ago. The good news I'm about 90% or even maybe more.

This evening I went for a walk and gather some rocks to paint on. Mid July our local pagan group is having a camp out.
We're planning to have three craft station or project. The popular rock painting, wand and crown making.
Then hopeful we can find some one to cover a couple of adult pagan subject.
Some one ask if camp out is sky clad friendly...Which is one participates in the nude, nothing sexual. Our group put up money and we ask for suggested donation of five dollars for single, and fifteen dollars for families.
But there those who drives the loop and see what the pagan is all about. But they don't get to close, any how we might do a spell on them and turn them in to a chicken or something.
I don't have any issue with some one being nude. But I'm trying to find out the legals on it.

Are We Being Left Behind

I live very close to British Columbia boarder. I live a little over 35 miles to CRESTON BRITISH COLUMBIA although I'm a little south of Bonners Ferry.
Not sure if anyone looked at link but the town of Creston population is under 6,000 people.
Little Community of Creston and many other have what is called COMMUNITY COMPLEX CENTER, some what like the Y.M.C.A. Closes Y to me would be Spokane and surrounding population of area is now properly a 500,000
Little town like Creston BC can have there community center. I know there going to agreement that Canadian pays more in taxes, it structured different. TAXES IN CANADA and there a SOCIALIST COUNTRY
I'm pretty impress with WHAT IS BEING OFFER.
Question time...Does your community have anything close to a YMCA or Community complex center.

Weigh in tomorrow morning. Not sure if I'll be down or up. But I will find out. Hopeful after dinner and we're having pizza and green salad.
It was raining earlier and hopeful I can get a walk in.
I'm trying to spend less time on computer and mostly social media. Not giving up my blog.
Been told if you write down what you eat one more aware of the food there consuming. So I'm strongly consider on my blog I would add my foods I ate.
Going and using fitday just takes to much time.
