A while ago..I bought another second hand microwave..well I put one on top of the other. Figured the kids wouldn't fight if they would have 2 to use at the same time. Ok that is fine and dandy. But as it turns out, second one isn't getting used to much. When I make chicken, hubby puts his chicken bones in it, to throw out the next day to the cats, as we have dogs and I don't want them to have them. So where am I going with all this..you might ask? TODAY I OPENED THE SECOND BOTTOM MICROWAVE! OMG OMG..THOUGHT THE THING WOULD LEAP OUT AT ME..I KID YOU NOT! LMAO, my son (oldest) told me last night that something huge was growing in it and it was bad! Well..he wasn't fooling! I jumped back when I saw it. It seems there was bones that got left for well lets just say at least 2 weeks. It was round and hairy..and filled the entire microwave..IT was scary folks! I took it outside (didn't really want to touch it..getting shivers now from thinking of it) and hosed it off! I think I will just throw the plate out..lol. As for the nuker..I am going back..gloved ..goggled and with Clorox cleanup..that crap will kill anything and clean it out..but next time I swear I am throwing out the whole nuker..green mold and all! My only regret..is I should have taken a picture of it..swear it moved!
Oh and btw..above image was made by me..using a autumn wreath that I made and bow with A.V Brothers page curl and the wonderful art of Suzi Sgai tubes! Decide to make autumn kit next..my garden kit is put on hold..so watch out for it soon!

Here in Tennessee it the weather is changing and getting cooler..should start to see some color on trees really soon. I like the fall..love to see color on trees and walk out side in cool air. Back home in New York..the colors where very vibrant....and I am just glad I still get to see them here. The only sad part of autumn for me is I know winter is around the corner..but here at least it isn't so harsh..and I manage it a lot better...winter is a lot shorter here also. We still get some cold days..but mostly around mid to low 30's..and not a ton of snow. I lived in a little town in upstate new york called Delhi before moving here..winter seemed to last from early November to may..tons of snow and below zero temps. Although very pretty..it could also be depressing because I didn't go outside much.
Today I am going to clean up some and cook..want to make a few apple pies..and making ham for dinner. Might even make some homemade bread..just seems like a good day to put on oven and bake. My kids still are turning on air conditioner..and freezing me to death..lol. Right now our days are around 80 degrees but it drops in the 50's at night. Good time to snuggle up with a book and blanket and read..won't put on heat for a while yet..lol. Well got to run..got to clean up a mess my two youngest kids made in my kitchen last night (made cookies). They told me .."we will clean it up MOM!" yeah right..they are sleeping and I won't wake them..rather clean now and have some quiet time..and kick butt later!

Sometimes I think I lost my mind..lmao! I have decided to take a temp job working at my husbands job. He wants to change to day shift..but the man that is leaving I will fill in for until they can find a suitable replacement for my husband and then he can move to days. Then I am going to find a full time permanent job.
I wasn't too sure I was up to doing 40 hours ..but after last week..I proved that I still have it in me. I hate getting up early but I love the pay check..so money talks..ya know. I will do my best to keep up with posting here..still have a scrap kit to finish..and I definitely still want to have time to do things on my computer..such as learning html and css. I am sure I can make the time to keep up. I just worry about my house..I know it is going to look like a tornado with in no time..hell it looks like it now..been trying to get it done..but kids have it trashed! It is a on going tragic event every day..lol.
Well I am getting of the keys for now..got lots to do and working tomorrow..so I will see you all soon..hugs Anne

I am worried very much about the hurricane that is hitting Texas..Ike sounds like a man eater. I hope all in Texas will be safe. Especially a few friends I know that live there. I am sending out good thoughts and prayers to all facing this storm.
Well I am headed to my bed and will be back soon. I am just glad I am only filling in this week and not actually working at this job all the time. I don't think I could keep up..lol. OH man it is rough getting older..lol.

I just came by because I had some thought on friends again. The ones I have met on my way around the Internet. Lately I have met some very nice people and some I have gotten to know pretty well. Sonya is one of my friends..we have been friends for a while now..she is from New Zealand, and I just adore her as my friend. She is smart and funny and a very good mom. We can chat on messenger for hours or not be able to talk for a while but when we get back online together we never miss a beat! Ya Girl..lol. Also from another site I visit regularly is Joe..Bob and sHan (shan is less of a the new guy now..lol) but I am growing attached to my new friends, and just wanted to give them a shout out and let them know I do care about them and they are now on my permenate list..lol. They will always be in my heart and a part of my life..(even if they don't want to be..he he he) I face my life day to day and never know if from on month to the next if I am keeping my internet connection..we live paycheck to paycheck..like a lot of people these days, but I hope and pray a little each month that we can pay the cable bill..because it means a lot in my little life to connect with my friends and finding out how they are doing. Hugs to you all..and hope you are all sleeping soundly..(except you Sonya..must be dinner time for you..lol) See ya all again soon. I have been bitten by the blogging bug!
