Back yet again. I have come to a conclusion that crossing your fingers AND your toes counteracts the whole "good luck" thing. After all the wonderful net problems I had just a while back- A lovely little storm came through yet again and knocked me back out. They couldn't figure out the problem for the longest of times....so it ended up just replacing everything- Yet once again :) I THINK, although you can't tell a tech this, that when the power surged that my modem just fried out. I mean- Its only been the SIXTH time that I have had to replace the modem due to being fried in the last 4 years... Not without a little weekend hiccup though - Cuz wouldn't you know after getting all fixed we had another storm come through and knocked out the cable/net for a day.
The plus about this last storm though...was that it managed to tear down a super delicious cherry tree from down the street.
For as long as I can remember that tree always had the best tasting cherries...but the only problem was that the tree belonged to the Dr. Office here, and the neighbor is a bit...well the kind of lady you would see chasing kids away while swinging a broom :) So I was lucky to catch up a handful and never got a chance to REALLY pick the tree for some good baking cherries - Until this weekend that is! I figured the tree is down...and its going to be pitched, so I went and picked it dry today.
For desert tonight- Cherry Crisp!!! It was sooo delicious. hot and fresh out of the oven, me and kiddos devoured an entire pan with a quart of vanilla ice cream on top. And I still have probably 5 lbs or so of cherries up in the freezer waiting for some jam and another round of crisp :)
As for scrap related, This month marks 4 years of designing for me! I actually "techinically" have it coming this week :) But I am going to kick it off tomorrow with the announcement of the new fabulous Sweeties!! The new ladies are amazingly talented- and have already been a blast to work with so far! So tomorrow get ready to see the brand new faces of the Creative Sweeties :)
This week also has some fabulous giveaways, contests, gifts all celebrating "Growth" - As hitting the 4 year mark really has me looking back at all the things that have happened - O YEA- A Super Awesome grab bag is also coming that is jam packed with goodies. Want a sneak peek?
