Got Rained On!

This morning was filled with thunderstorms but by 2:00pm the sun was out as if it hadn't even rained.
Todd decided to take the bike out at about this time since it was sunny and the thermometer read 80 degrees. I asked if he would take me to the library on the bike to drop off a book; he did and then asked if I wanted to continue or go home. I said lets keep going; so we went to my sisters to pick up my Mary Kay order and then rode. We headed North and I knew once we crossed over Ogden Ave we should had turned around and headed back, not because of the weather, but just a feeling I had. After a few more miles north we decided to head back, our route back was not the same one we took but one that had a gray cloud over it. I think the cload followed us because 1/2 way home it started to drizzle, nothing heavy just a light drizzle. At a stop light an older gentleman in a car rolled down his window and told us to put our top up. That we thought was actually kind of funny.
The drizzle was ok but then about a mile from home we got rained on. Let just say rain and hairspray don't mix; once home I had to dry myself off and clean myself up.
It was a real nice ride until the last mile.

Walk, Don't Run

I have posted before that I love watching old movies on Sunday mornings, today with the rain it was a perfect opportunity to check out TCM and see what was scheduled. This morning Walk, Don't Run was on. Plot curtsey of IMDB: During the housing shortage of the 1964 Toyko Olympics, two men and a woman share a single apartment and the older man plays Cupid to the other two.
Starring Cary Grant, Samantha Eggar & Jim Hutton this is a cute and silly movie with fun little twists.

A Fond Farewell

Today we remember Bea Arthur. I remember my parents watching Bea as Maude in the 70's and as a child not really getting what was going on during the show but knowing the character was a brass strong women. My most vivid memory of Bea was the character of Dorothy on The Golden Girls. Her talents will be missed but remembered in reruns.

Card 18 of 52 for 2009

This is a card I made for the weekend sketch challenge.

Gorgeous Yesterday, Rainy Today

We had a gorgeous 70+ degree yesterday, spent a little time outside spreading grass seed and riding on the back of Todd's Harley.
Today we are all stuck inside the temp dropped down to about 40 degrees and rain.
Well at least the rain will help the grass seed take.

The Producers

Being home today not feeling well with a stomach virus, I am basically sitting on the couch not trying to move too much. I am on the laptop and watching The Producers one of the movies that we have recorded on our DVR. This is one wacky Mel Brooks movie with classic Mel Brooks humor. Starring Zero Mastel, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn, Lee Meredith and Christpher Hewitt.
Plot (taken from IMDB): Producers Max Bialystock (Mostel) and Leo Bloom (Wilder) come up with the idea to make money by producing a sure-fire flop.

Pleasant Surprise

I was pleasantly surprised that I qualified for a free stamp set for my sales during the sale-a-bration promotion. I really didn't pay attention to my sales during the promotion. I was hoping I did well, but not keeping track I didn't know.
Thanks everyone who ordered from me during this promotion. Now to go pick a FREE stamp set.

Marie Antoinette

Tonight Todd and I decided to watch one of the many movies we have recorded on our DVR to try and clean it up a little (we got it down to 47% full now)
Anyway I chose Marie Antoinette (I love period movies) and not knowing hardly anything about her life thought it would be a good choice.
I did like the movie, the story of her life facinated me. But why did Sophia Coppola who directed the movie use modern rock songs in the movie? It really distracted your attention in some parts of the film and some songs didn't fit the scene. Maybe she was paid a good amoung of $ to feature these songs.
Anyway the movie starred Kirsten Dunst as Marie and Jason Schwartzman as Louis XVI
I liked the movie but it wouldn't be one I would purchase on DVD.

Brothers layout

My sister Raelynn got me hooked on a website (coordinating collections) that offers a kit of the month club. You get a coordinating supply kit with enough items to make numerous layouts or cards.
I made this layout with my 1st kit and still have enough supplies left over from the kit to make a few more layouts.

Bumper Sticker

I saw a bumper sticker on a car on the way home from work today it read:
Are you still employed? Keep buying foreign and you won't be much longer.

I know there are some things that you can't control in buying foreign but I know there are conscience choices that Americans can make when purchasing items.
The biggest ones are Cars and Food.

Enough said

Yours Mine and Ours

Tonight on TCM they showed Yours Mine and Ours
Plot courtesy of IMDB: When a widower with 10 children marries a widow with 8, can the 20 of them ever come together as one big happy family? From finding a house big enough for all of them and learning to make 18 school lunches, to coping with a son going off to war and an unexpected addition to the family, Yours, Mine and Ours attempts to blend two families.

I hadn't seen this movie in years and forgot how funny and cute it was.

Card 12 of 52 for 2009

I have neglected in posting cards lately, not that I don't have any to post, just that I have been distracted by other things; so I will be posting a couple this week and next week to catch up.
This card was made at my Stamp Camp a few weeks ago.
