Good Morning All ! Finally Friday……. LL … good luck with your interview this morning.. Hope all goes well ! Choco.. I am sure it was difficult to remain silent… not sure I could have done the same…Maybe if they had seen 102 Minutes that Change America… they would not think it was so funny…….. Hope you all have a good day… running a bit late…Hope to be back later
Dee, 2 oz of water to 1 tablespoon of sugar but if you want it to be full and you are boiling it, might want to do 4 oz of water to 2 tablespoons of sugar. Should be about right once it boils down a little.
and thanks again for the hbird feeder info i would have never figured it out however, my ones i have now are such piggies……..i need to refill the big feeder! they are dangerous as heck………..so close to hitting me in the head or into a cat! one got his beak stuck in cat proof window screen, but managed to get out. and they actually do sit on that hummingbird swing that dd got me for christmas. never long enough to get a pic sadly
Happy Friday the 13th!!! I love these days! They’ve always been good to me, and today is no different! Finally got done (at least with the rough draft) of a big project. I just sent off the draft! Whoo hoo. Next week will be a bear with edits and two more large projects, but at least I feel like I accomplished something. Poor Stella has been so bored. Dh took her to his office this afternoon. She goes from desk to desk getting pets and love and treats. She’s exhausted when he brings her home!
LL—Glad to hear the interview went well! Hope you get the job!
Thanks moms for turning the link into a picture!
Hello to Dixie who popped in here a post back. Did you need help with one of the challenges?
Loop—Hope everything is good with you! I saw you updated the fall clothing bag items on the picture guide and now I want that cute batty hat.
dee—the humming birds at my old house in Cincy were crazy! They would fight and drink that juice down so fast. Here I only see a few early in the morning, but they will come so close to me and just hover…it’s so cool.
Thanks Queen Another challenge? Ugh. I trying to keep up with the acorns.
Thanks Choco That is really sad about those students. If you didn’t live through 9/11 or your parents didn’t teach you the magnitude of that day, I guess you wouldn’t understand. I doubt you could have said anything to get through to them.
gaga—Congrats on the squirrel slippers! I managed to get a pair too. Thanks for the sweet words about Stella. She is my joy around here. And her ears are just the best!
Ooohh, I think it might be a full moon tonight too!!!
Choco, I’m sorry to do this again, but I was sending gifts to LL (ylime32) from enchantedisle3 and somehow the thing changed names on me! Could you please send those to her? I don’t understand why, but it keeps happening to me wondering if I’m aciddently hitting it to change it split seconds before it sends! I’m so sorry..I feel dumb.
Hi everyone, I hope everyone is doing well. As for me I am in the middle of doing an irl organization overhaul and it is going pretty well so far. Thank you to the wonderful people who have sent me gifties in ww!
Oh my goodness, gaga!!! Thank you for the amazing gift!!!!! I can’t tell you how long I’ve wanted that stove!! The other two items I needed for a room I started a few weeks ago and now I have them!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! ♥ You just made my whole day!!!
Good Morning All ! April…Good luck with upcoming projects this week.. Always stressful having things hanging over your head… and when you get them accomplished..celebrate ! ( by playing in WW !! ) Stopped to get a pizza yesterday… Pet store next to pizza shop there was an adoption table with several dogs available for adoption… I fell in love with a puppy sitting on the lady’s lap….Stopped to talk to her..but the puppy had already been claimed and was waiting for her new family to arrive to get her.. She looked to be a Pointer of some kind……Those eyes..told a story… her sister had been adopted earlier in the day……….I guess it was just as well she wasn’t available… Really not home enough to have a puppy… Maybe when I retire ………..Can only hope… Still can’t stop thinking of that little puppy though… Feel she spoke to me !!! Otterkinz… you are welcome !! Right now I have no wishes to put on the list.. but maybe soon… littleleaf… keeping my fingers crossed for potential new job !! dee… yard sales are so much work..card tables..work bench .. back of a pick up truck if dh has one… maybe buy a couple of paper table clothes and spread them out under a shady tree ?? Good Luck ! Hey Chants .. hope all is well with dh !! and you too of coarse… Still working on getting the Grotto trophy… spend 2 days on level 37 but finally passed ! Sheeba… you sure are a busy lady !! Try and stay sane and take some time each day for yourself ! My mom’s nephew flying in from CA to spread his mother’s ashes at university in IN.. stopping here to visit… my mom’s sister passed away at age 99 !!… May join them for lunch.. Hope all is well.. Have a great Sunday ! Weather here is picture perfect… 70’s and sunny
Sorry, I’ve been lurking lately … usually get caught up on comments and then don’t have time to respond. And just have a few minutes this morning.
Thank you to all working on my wish list with me! Have gotten some really nice gifts from LL, Cheese, April, Jem, Wophy, and Momz over the past week or so. Wish you ALL had wish lists that I could gift back to! I have some more things from your wish list, littleleaf, so I’ll keep working on that one with you.
Kids are doing well in college, dd calling every day, dss calling 2x week (with some prompting). I figured it would be about that. I’m trying not to live vicariously through them, but they are not big social media people, so I can’t learn too much unless they call. College gives you so many opportunities, and so far, they seem to be jumping right in. Very proud of them all.
Good luck with the garage sale, dee. I like the idea of table cloths or bed sheets on the ground for clothes. Sad to hear students’ views of 911, Choco. “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it” … Thinking about you and your mom, gaga. Hang in there. Loved seeing the pic of Stella.
Emma—I have a sticky on my computer to send you a wig on the 18th! I knew I was forgetting something…brain still fried! LOL I think that 2013 Winterfest White Lamp Post was a map item and isn’t kinzpostable…someone please correct me if I’m wrong. I don’t have one so I don’t know for sure.
April- Thank you! Your wonderful for sending one to me! 💛 I always keep my eye out for a cranberry dining chair for you when I’m in the trading room! Please, please let me know if there is anything else your wishing for! Also thank you for letting me know about the lamp,,,I will update my list! PS I always enjoy seeing pxs of Stella…I am a huge dog lover!
Just peeking in! I enjoyed reading everyone’s comments!
Still cutting out things!
Miracle – How amazing that your dd calls you every day! None of my kids did that when they went to college or do it now! I’m lucky if I hear from them once a week or every two or three weeks!
I’m not sure if I mentioned, but my youngest is touring Europe this month before her teaching job starts in Spain (October). I haven’t talked to her since she left, but we have “chatted” via What’s App a bit.
Gaga – I loved hearing your pet story, but I really wish the dog was yours! Sure, you may have more time when you retire, but the connection seemed to be mutual. Speaking of dogs, one of my friends has an instagram account for her dog. It is so cute!
Dee – #30 Ha ha! So funny! Plus, congrats on up to date WW account. I’ve only checked into one today. Nine more to go! LOL!
gaga – did you get the number of the organization to make sure the puppy got to her new home??? if she was already adopted, then we just hope she is well cared for & has a happy life
miracle – glad to see your kiddos seem to be adjusting & are keeping in touch
dee – i agree – stella is so smoochy adorable! i’m with gaga, too, on being smitten with her ears! april – she’s a doll! congrats on making progress at work. do you have a couple of saw horses or barrels or cooler or something that you can put a board across to make a table top? Even on top of some cardboard boxes to raise stuff off of the ground?
Just stopping in to say I probably won’t be posting much if at all these next few days. I’ve got a lot going on and I’m in a weird emotional state right now. Events from the other day brought up some issues that I’m trying to work through and I feel it best if I put my focus on that at the moment…
Good Morning All ! Start of a new week…. moms.. hope you had fun celebrating your dh’s birthday ! No snow up here yet although it has been cooler up here…71 yesterday…The rescue people were actually from a Doberman Rescue… The had a rather rambunctious 4 year old mix Doberman… she was really sweet but too big ! Not really in the market to adopt a puppy yet but still see that sweet face sitting on that lady’s lap… Saw that Falcons won yesterday !! Browns play tonight…hopefully they will have it a little more together than they did the last game !! One of the players lost his girlfriend to an altered driver who struck her and killed her… Tragically she had just delivered their first baby 2 WEEKS before she was killed… The team is rallying around him to support him during this horrible incident…. dee.. Have you figured out your yard sale display ?? Otterkinz.. thoughts are with you… if you need any support during this week we are all here to help ! Queen of Sheeba… hope you were able to finish up all the work you were doing in preparation for upcoming week…Was wondering how your kitty is doing…I think I mentioned that I am cat sitting this week…My sister’s cat is 14 and she left instructions about what to do if Sadie died while they are away on vacation………so hope that doesn’t happen… Chants….I finished 50 levels of Grand Grotto last night !!!!!!!!!! NO TROPHY was given…logged out and back in…….NO TROPHY………so discouraging.. I have e mailed the support team at Ganz… Hope they can fix whatever happened…That trophy is so cute… and it took so many hours to complete!! Little Leaf..Emma and Webkinz R US… Good morning to you !! Hope you all have a good day today Miracle… happy to hear that your kids are settling into college life ! I heard from my nephew yesterday by phone !! So happy to hear that all is well….I think he is hooked on OSU football… he attend the game last weekend and when asked about the marching band…. which I think is supposed to be one of the best….. he responded by saying that they were OK and he is more into orchestras !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go figure !
2 pounds chicken 1/2 stick butter 32 ounces chicken broth 1 can Rotel 1-2 cups whole kernel corn (I use frozen, but can use 1 can) 1 large onion chopped 2 tsp minced garlic 2 tsp ground cumin 2 tsp chili powder salt & pepper to taste
In the pot, combine: broth, butter, onion, garlic, spices, & chicken. Boil until chicken is done. Remove chicken, shred, and return to pot. Add rotel and corn, then simmer for an hour or more. (Can simmer all afternoon or in crock pot.)
Can top with plain greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), lime juice, for dh – cheese, or tortilla chips as desired.
I am not sure if you can substitute the butter, but I would be willing to try it with 1/2 of what the recipe calls for – overall a little bit shouldn’t be too unhealthy.
Good Morning All ! moms… I am happy that the Browns won !! They really needed to turn things around after last week’s game… So happy for OBJ ‘s beautiful TD ! dee… only make two basic soups…chicken noodle and beef barley…kind of boring ! Does anyone know if tomorrow is maintenance day in WW ?? Seems like it has be a while since last updated… Otterkinz… hope you are doing OK ! Stop in if you need a boost of support.. We are all here for you ! April… how are your projects coming along ?? Hope all is going as planned… can’t forget Stella… She doing well ?? Weather here is beautiful… Supposed to be sunny all week and warm ! Have a great day everyone !!
