Still Going Crazy........

I am doing a countdown until June 1 at 10:00 am. That is officially the LAST DAY of school. I love the school year, but the end of the year is so busy. School picnics, school parties, gift money collecting, gift shopping, first communion, kindergarten graduation, my dd's birthday party, other birthday parties. My head has been spinning! I might be a bit scarce until after that magical date, but I will try to post whenever I get a chance. Until then, I hope that everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! :-)

I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Courtney over at ZuZu's Perch! :-) (I know that I should really put a link up to her blog in this post, but I'm not sure how to do that yet. I'm blushing with embarassment! LOL! But if you want to check out Courtney's wonderful blog, I have her listed in my blogroll.)

Literary Meme
How it works:

1. Grab the book closest to you
2. Open it to page 161
3. Find the fifth full sentence
4. Post the text of the sentence to your blog
5. Don't search around for the coolest book you have, use the one that is really next to you.
6. Tag five people to do this meme.

The book on the top of my pile at my desk is: (Now don't laugh at me! LOL!) Grandma Putt's Old-Time Vinegar, Garlic, Baking Soda, and 101 More Problem Solvers by Jerry Baker.

Here's the fifth sentence on page 161:

"Rub the paste into the stain, wait 30 minutes, and launder as usual" (In reference to how to remove a rust stain from fabric with salt and vinegar.)

Yep, that's some heavy reading. :-) I think that I am going to start keeping some great novels by my computer rather than my home and garden reference books. Ha Ha!

I tag:
Ask a Lutheran

And I'll think of two more in a little bit!

I'm Still Here!

Really, I am! :-) It's just been really crazy around here with the end of school (I can't believe I just wrote that. It has gone by so quickly!) AND my loving hubby has been working from home for the past two weeks. That's great, but I get no computer time because he uses the computer for work. But he's back to work tomorrow, so I might be able to start my organic gardening posts. But now I have been tagged for a literary MeMe, so I have to go caught up on that. Have a great day, everyone! :-)

Just for fun

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Busy Busy!

The weekend just flew by! We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day for our dd's First Communion. It was just beautiful. She was chosen to read the responsorial psalm, so I was one PROUD momma!! :-) When she stood in front of everyone to read (and it was a full church, standing room only) she read so clearly and she just looked SO BIG. I almost cried. She was just so happy about the whole event, though, that it was hard for me to be too sad about my first little baby girl growing big so quickly.

On another note.......
I think that I am going to focus this week on organic gardening. It is a subject that I am very interested in, and I hope that I have a little bit of useful knowledge to share. LOL!!

So, to kick things off I have a wonderful garden essay passed on to us from our church's very own Fr. Pete:

Caring For Your Garden In The Spring Of Faith

Spring is just around the corner, so here are some ideas for your garden.

Plant three rows of PEAS:
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul

Plant four rows of SQUASH:
Squash gossip
Squash indifference
Squash grumbling
Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of LETTUCE:
Lettuce be faithful
Letuce be kind
Lettuce be patient
Lettuce really love one another

No garden is complete without TURNIPS:
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for service
Turnip to help one another

To conclude our garden, we must have THYME:
Thyme for each other
Thyme for family
Thyme for friends
Thyme for God

Water freely with PATIENCE and cultivate with LOVE.

Thanks, Fr. Pete!! I love my Sunday bulletin. :-)

Not much time

I might go missing for a bit, until next Monday. Saturday is my DD8's First Communion, and we are planning a swirl of activities revolving around this event. It will be good to enjoy the company of family and friends, but it will certainly be busy. :-) I need to go make sure the house is clean, the food is ready, and that everyone has something nice to wear. I actually have a few posts rolling around in my head, but I won't be able to do anything great until the middle of next week.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful week! I'm off to go crazy. LOL!! :-)
