Musical Muse

Anyone that knows me knows that music is something that encircles me at almost all moments. Its quite rare for there to be the sound of silence about me.
Now I also am known to have a very diverse range of who I enjoy listening to. I usually have a mix of folks placed on my MP3 player at any one time and just let it play.
Right now....I have to admit that I'm stuck on this new cd! haha
Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss
Their song "please read the letter" has switched something in my head. I could just listen to them sing that song over and over. I saw the video to it as well and I think now when I hear the song....I mentally am filling the house up as if it was mine! haha
The snap is taken from the video....I want that window and door!
Have you heard this cd??? I can't be the only one going crazy for the magical blending of their voices. I never would have thought I'd like the sound and yet its incredible!

Coming to Life

heck.... a quick peek won't hurt..... heehee

Wonder who at Primmart Convention will end up with them??

Sewing and Stuffing

This batch of primitive dolls is done and finished! I can't show them in their final state just yet....they are prizes and gifts for at the Primmart Convention!!!!
Hope everyone will love them! heehee
I sure had a blast creating them :)


You have to be living under a rock I think to have not heard of this wonderfully talented blogger.
Dooce is a blog that I read DAILY!
Can't recall just how I stumbled across her in the first place but I can't imagine not reading Heather's blog now.
A small blurb ... "This website chronicles my life from a time when I was single and making a lot of money as a web designer in Los Angeles, to when I was dating the man who would become my husband, to when I lost my job and lived life as an unemployed drunk, to when I married my husband and moved to Utah, to when I became pregnant, to when I threw up and became unbearably swollen during the pregnancy, to the birth, to the aftermath, to the postpartum depression that landed me in a mental hospital. I'm better now.".......


There are days that I really feel like that! haha
When I was first told about Facebook, I joined thinking it would turn out to be one of the sites that I jardly find the time to go to. Oh was I so beyond wrong!
I have reconnected with some wonderful old friends and its such a simple way to stay in touch. I'm on dial up so to have friends send emails full of photos is so very hard and frustrating. This way I can just flip thru their albums on FB and see whats been happening in their lives. I love that.
I belong to a few different forums and they have strict rules that need to be followed. I fully understand and agree. I have been teased by friends that know me in both spots that they love when I alter my FB status! haha Lets just say....I have not much holding me back from what I post ;)
Are you on Facebook??
Are you addicted??
Friend me! haha

Cedara the chicken

This is Cedara the chicken now! She is an Araucana breed from Brazil. That was she can withstand the heat that Virgina gets. She grew to be larger then all the other chicks in this batch and I laughed and said she was aptly named then! haha
Look at her feet! They are huge and GREEN! She also lays eggs with a blue shell. I told my aunt that she had to get one of Cedara's eggs and blow it out for me so I could have it.
Jake the dog is wondering why Cedara isn't afraid of him. haha He has been told to leave them alone and just whimpers when she comes right over to the fence. She sticks her beak out thru the fence and pecks his toes! Cedara is naughty...I love her!

Baby Chickens

Aren't they cute?! My aunt lives in Virgina and they have chickens. This year they got this new batch to add to the ones they already had.
She asked family for name suggestions.
See the little dark chick on the right hand side, right in front of the others.....thats my chick!
Her name is Cedara!
I've never had a critter be named after me before. I love her!
