Yes, I have to admit it. I'm almost ashamed to but here it goes....I'm bullet challenged! I've tried to create bullet posts a few times and every single time they end up messy and out of line but today I decided to try again. We'll see how it goes.
Not a lot happening around here so going to mix up a bunch of assorted, unrelated stuff here.
OK *gulp* here we go...on to the bullets.....
Christmas Tree down - April 10, 2008: Yes sadly, due to all the snow we've had this year, it took me until yesterday to take my outdoor Christmas tree down. In my defence I turned off the lights on January 2nd but just had no way to take it down as the base was buried in anything up to 3 feet of snow until last week when the snow finally disappeared. I think that the tree being up was beginning to give my wonderful neighbour a coronary though! Thankfully he'd been in Florida until last week but once home he started having palpatations. I realized (and snickered to myself) just how much it was bothering him when I came home earlier this week and he kindly said to me that he'd loosened the pegs holding the tree so that it would be easier for me to take down! LOL!! They are the nicest couple and do a TON for me (eg. my garden has also been tidied and the dirt turned ready for planting in a couple of months) and I knew that he was only helping out so I promised that now that the snow was gone the tree would be put away by tonight. I gave him an early Christmas present and took it down last night, one night early! :o)
Men's Dessert Night
I was reading Robin's blog today about a dessert her hubby was 'making' for work today and it reminded me of a fun pic I hadn't posted last month. Our Sunday School class has an annual 'Men's Dessert Night' each year and it's always a lot of fun. The guys bake and the women get to taste them first and judge in a variety of categories. Works for me! The guys are really, really creative and we've seem some amazing desserts over the years. This is the cake that won for 'Most Creative' Pretty cool, eh?!!
Slippers for Hannah
Doris and I decided to purchase some adorable little slippers for our girls. They're made from leather and cost only $10 a pair (including shipping) which is much less expensive then Rob*eeze and they're totally adorable! I ordered mainly 12 month+ sizes but now wish I'd ordered a couple of smaller sizes too since the babies seem to be coming home so much younger right now. (YIPPEE!!!!!!!) If you're interested in buying some adorable shoes you can find them here at The Ruji's Store
* Did you pick up on something? Yes, not a bullet to be found in this post! I tried...really I did but they ended up all over the place!! Oh how I wish I had my 'SnagIt' program (GREAT program!!) from work at home because I'm thinking you would laugh at where my one and only bullet is located. Can you believe I somehow managed to put a bullet beside the 'compose' tab in the box where this post is created? Yes, that box in the top right corner where I can choose to either 'Edit Html' or 'Compose' is now sporting a beautiful bullet...and it's the only bullet on this post! *ugh!!!* I am bullet challenged for sure!!! Help!
Have a great weekend everyone!
