I'm still trying to figure out how to shake Mr. spammer <---click and get it to stop leaving comments on my blog.  I have comment moderation on and I delete the comments that are spam.  I've decided to activate the "word verification" function also, to see if this flushes him out.  If its a machine-generated comment, hopefully it will stop the bugger.  He's <--- click  been bothering me for some time.  Everyone else, please do stop by and leave comments.  Currently this will inconvenience all totaled approximately 1 person due to the overwhelming number 0-1 of comments  Smiley from I normally receive on a daily basis.

is it just me?!?!? or does it feel like life can unravel faster than a roll of TP on Halloween Eve? (Where did I hear that?) Some days can just creep me out. Starting lineup FIRST THING THIS A.M. the macbookpro (13 mo. new) just quits. Like nada. I can't do anything with it. Worst timing ever since I NEED internet right now. Two words? HOUSE HUNTING. No sooner do I close the lid on the mac because it was worthless to me at that moment, we proceed out to our first house-viewing appt to find ourselves the FIRST to arrive at the scene of a fire <---click yes you guessed it at the house we were going to perhaps live? It was in the canyon right behind the backyard of the very house went to look at. 911 had not even been called yet. 911 what is your emergency... agh MY LIFE.  Like srsly. UNIVERSE?

But then these guys showed up and that was hot, no pun ;) and made everything ok.  I'm a sucker for a man in uniform.  It's no secret.  Hi hus.

This post almost had NO photos with it.  I took pictures with my phone but the network was too busy and wouldn't let me send ANY.  Go figure.  No really?  So I found some stock photos on the web.

This thing went right over my head.  Of course I missed the shot.  I'm fired.  Impressive.  It has words written on the bottom of it something to the effect, "Hotties inside Fire Safety" or something?  Let me tell you that thing was close. 

THEN, just when I feel completely abandoned by the universe... out of the blue I get phones calls from two people who I haven't spoken with in years and the conversations were refreshing.

Enough said.

Omen aside, the house shouted not me not me.  On top of this, I experienced smoke inhalation and it gave me a headache.

We swing on over to the Apple Store (we brought the computer with us - can you say Geek Genius Bar to the rescue) and actually that was a pleasant experience. One word: Geeks. You know how I love my Geeks geniuses.  I learned something new and of course I taught the geek something.  Always happens.  Oh incidentally, they were able to boot the computer right up.  Nothing was wrong with it.  Huh?

We left there and decided to grab a bite to eat.  Again, NO PICTURES, thanks network.  I ended up having a couple of nice conversations with complete and total strangers which for me is a stretch. ;)

I hear that Mercury went direct but it feels like retrograde to me.  Lies.

I didn't know that cats were THAT territorial over catnip.  OK?  Oh and I scored some great 50% off deals.  And I mean great deals.  Well that's a wrap.  I told you this was random.  

I snapped the coolest picture of a the most perfect rosebud today and NOPE again network wouldn't let me send to my album.

Come on over for a visit....

...pull up a box chair and stay a while won't you?  Smiley from  No-- I am not through whining about my upcoming, unplanned move.  Smiley from I'm still in the denial phase, the why me phase, and possibly the bargaining with God phase.  Please God I promise I'll be real good.    Obviously I'm being punished. Smiley from   However, I DO like the "kraft" color of those boxes.  They are pretty aren't they? 

Give UP!

I have great friends and some of them (you will go un-named, you know who you are) hate all my mamby pamby sugar wooger rahrah sisbabam boo go team talk. This same friend sent me the cute poster below.  Thanks for your support and encouragement. Hellerrrrrrrrrrrr

Thanks for your help <----click

Staying Put, I'm NOT moving, I'm Not moving

The upcoming move is not going to monopolize my life.  Its just a blip on the radar screen, right?  I'm way to busy making other plans. k.thx.  Move are you listening, boxes? pack yourself and while you are at it.... move yourself too.  Oh and new and perfect house for me and mine, please present yourself and forward me my new address.

Thanks again in advance for your help.

I'm NOT moving, I'm Not moving. I'm NOT moving, I'm Not moving. I'm NOT moving, I'm Not moving.

PS: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Help One Another

I stumbled upon this image and it made me think about life and how it's been going for so many people right now (including me, more on that later). Tumbling around upside down with so much uncertainty, and how some may just be hanging on by a thread (or a slim branch) for dear life!  We could take a lesson from these gentle creatures and all reach out to lend a hand and spread some love.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Cheers!  Aren't they cute (it's probably photo-shopped but still cute)!

Live with Passion

Recently, I participated in a card swap with the famous M!ssy Ballance <--- click over at Crafty Carn!val. <--- click  So if you're participating in the swap and don't want to see your card, look away now.  Smiley from
If you worked on the cards with me (you know who you are, HI Allison over at "Shadow Castle Stamps") YES I completely rejected the first batch I had started and this is what the ended up being my card!!! I know? Can you believe it?  It's a complete and total different card.  I just wasn't feeling the other one.  So I started to panic.  I had to come up with SOMETHING.  I ended up using a stamp set from Stampin Up called "Inspired by Nature" The inside reads "live with PASSION"

Here is a front shot.  Can you tell which card had an "opportunity for embellishment" (aka accidental ink smudge that needed covering up/hiding a butterfly and some glitter) 

Another angle

Boxed up and ready to go
 ~Enjoy, do something fun today, M!ss Pr!ssy

Good Morning Sunday!

Yes, there is diesel in that coffee mug (aka Bailey's Irish Creme). I thought I'd share a picture of my famous "Poached Egg Bowl". Its definitely becoming a signature dish around here! Brown rice, fresh spinach and mushrooms sauteed in a little EVOO and a Tbsp of Worcestershire. All ingredients are organic including the eggs. Pretty healthy, no?

Now if I could just stay away from these:

We'd be all set!

We had a busy weekend or "I" should say I had a busy weekend.  I finished spring cleaning the kitchen drawers. Blahblahblah, with everything washed and put away.  We try to have 50% of our weekend a cat-free zone.  They get locked in jail (aka art studio, aka craft room) for as long as they will tolerate it so we can open up the windows, doors and generally de-cat the place.

Here is Punke in his jail cell:

I washed every single slip cover (aka sheets to keep the cat hair off of my furniture, have I mentioned that I am fostering these two cats, they aren't mine.  I'm allergic to cats technically) on the sectional sofa in our living room and all of the cat beds (no that is not a cat bed in the above picture) it happens to be my stockpile of paper because I love paper.  Speaking of HOARDERS.  Have you seen that show on t.v?  I was just getting ready to judge those people, srsly I don't understand how they can live like that.  But then I walked into my art studio and my "little" collections of everything and actually I started to identify with "those" types.  So all judgments have been shelved and tucked away in the back recesses of my mind forever.  Anybody want to run over to Containers and More with me?  That show makes me itch.  It makes me want to jump up off the couch and clean out the drawers in the kitchen and throw things away or something.  I see a pattern forming here.  Enough of all this "cleaning" talk.  It's exhausting me already...

Next, the carpets

My swap cards are all done and in the mail.  I have a swap post in a couple of days when I have time to do it.
