I'm sure you've heard but things were shaking around Southern Ca today. And not only at the Red Geranium Cottage but everywhere. Now this is so typical for me........ I'm running my errands today minding my own business ( yes I sure was) I went by the bank, stopped at Chevron for my daily diet coke, which by the way they were out of so I had to settle for diet Pepsi. Then on to Office Depot to make a couple copies. Of what...........that's none of your business. I walk in and everyone is white as a ghost. I bop along and say hello how are you today???? The guy says, uhhhhhh i'm fine. I wonder to myself did this place just get robbed?? We ARE in Southern Ca alright??? My mom thinks we all carry an Oozie around with us. I'm hearing alot of talking going on and everyone is on edge. So what else could it be?? I go on making my "copies" minding my business as I've already told you, when my phone rings. "Hello I say, when I hear Sharon are you alright???" well yea I'm ok why?? She says It's Nancy, did you feel the earthquake?? WHAT I say??? Is that why everyone is acting strange??? About then I hear someone say, oh yea I heard it was an 8.5 well here in Ca they don't even have to say WHAT was an 5.8 you just know it's earthquake talk. I was in my car driving and felt nothing, nothing at all. I finish doing my job I came to do (which is nobodies business but mine.) and went straight home to check on Madeline. I walk in and she is lying right next to the door looking up at me as if to say.........WHAT?? why are you looking at me??? So I guess she felt nothing either. We had a few things out of place and several drawers in our bedroom were wide open but other than that all is well. I must say my Sistas were worried about me and after Nancy called Beth called, Debwas sending emails asking if I was ok and then my kids called, mom called and on and on. That's one way to get family to call you I guess. LOL!!!! Same thing happened to me when we lived in the Bay area we had that huge earthquake right before the baseball playoffs I think it was 8.5 or something and again I was in my car driving home from work and felt nothing. Hubby was home white as a ghost when I got there. Chandelier was still swinging a half hour later. NO kidding. WE had a big vaulted ceiling. So it built up some momentum. Gotta love my car that's all I gotta say. Huggy told his coworkers if I would have felt this one today I would have been on the phone calling the moving van!!! LOL!!! Oh one more thing my Wilster is a disc jockey in the St. Louis are and he called hubby to ask him how he was and then wanted hubby to be a guest on the radio show today to talk about the earthquake. ROFLOL!!!! Well thanks Wilster cause now he thinks he's a star. OMG I guess they were asking him questions about the quake and how it felt and on and on. HE LOVED IT!!!! I'm a paparazzi and he's a star. What better match could we have??
Ok more exciting happening going on around here. I can't believe this myself but I had my 6,000 comment!!! OH NO SHE DIN'T you say. Oh yes she did!!! And that lucky person was none other than my buddy MISSRICK RACK AND POLK DOT!!! Ok I just got that totally backwards but you know who she is. LOLOL!!!! And because she was my number 6,000, (I love typing that) this is what she will be receiving from the Red Geranium Cottage. And we're still on baby watch as far as I know. Maybe tomorrow from what I hear. Luke is on his way.
Today I did some more sewing, wanna see what I made?? Do ya??? I'm gonna be taking one with me on my trip thats coming up and the other one I'm gonna be selling. And oh yes I did put a zipper in them. I'm on a roll with these zippers.
And here is the second one and this is the one I'm selling. It's a bit bigger than the first one and if you like the green tie I put on mine I can also add that to this one instead of the pink one. Not a problem. I'm selling this one for $50. Any questions or your interested email me. I've got enough fabric to make a couple more of these. firstname.lastname@example.org It has the same lining as the first one and also has a zipper. Cause you know I'm all over the zipper now. I'm just sayin girlfriends. Can I get a big old WOO and a HOOOOO?????? Nanna are you out there????
I've got to admit I am a total DING DONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a give away awhile back and I left two numbers with you all as to who won. Well.............Kimemailed me and said I'm #15 because that was one of the winning numbers. Well......I proceeded to email her back and say ha ha but your NOT #15. Judy politely sent me an email saying that KIM was indeed #15. WHAT I said?? How can that be?? So you see I do not pick out these numbers before hand. I had no effing clue!!!!! LOLOLOL!!!!! And poor Kim she did not beg she just ignored my butt. But Kim you are a winner!!!!! And the other person still has not come forward so.....I'm waiting!!!! She apparently does not read my blog everyday as I thought she did. I"m just sayin. Kim I'll be getting your prezzie off to you soon. wink wink. And thanks Judyfor making me look like a total idiot!! ROFLLMAO!!!!!!
Look what Darlenesent to me??? I just love her!!!! The angel and Darlene. Darlene, me and a few other bloggers have been doing a block swap for months and it's about to come to an end so Darlene sent us all one of these. Thanks Missy!! I love her!!
Then Sandy sent me this cute little towel to thank me for doing the cupcake swap. I know it's not over yet but in every crowd there's an over achiever. LOL I'm just sayin. And this group had several of them. I'm still working on my stuff. I might even be late. There I said it LATE!!!!
Isn't that one cute towel?? Thanks Sandy!!! I love it.
Let me see what else............hmmmmmmmm Oh yes here is some fabric I bought from my favorite site. www.Fatquartershop.com I love these fabs. I used my gift certificate from Boo and Beth for my birthday. Thanks to both of you. The money was well spent.
