Well after taking a nice LONG weekend off to bring in my 50th year on this planet I went back to work at 3 AM Wednesday morning and unloaded the semi-truck of goods for our store and then stocked my area of the store (Scrap-booking). I got off about 10 minutes to 10 AM. I was exhausted!
After work I went straight to the tire dealer where we bought the tires for my car as we had taken advantage of their hazardous road coverage and boy was I glad that we had as I had a nail in my rear passenger side tire and it had gone through the side wall. No way for them to repair it so they had to get another tire in as they didn't have one there at the shop. I just waited the 2 hours while they ordered it and had it delivered. Instead of being a couple hundred dollars I paid just a little over $63. I was just glad to have it fixed. Then on the way home from work today the car let me know I have a turn signal light out on the drivers side so we will look at getting that replaced tomorrow. I tell you what my car sure has been a "needy wench" lately.
Cont'd... Saturday morning....
Well today was to be my "Pie Crust Basics how to" afternoon and it will be just Robin and I. Everyone else had health issues, car troubles and other duties SO Scott says he'll make a pie with Robin and I so I will have at least 3 here for the session. I will video tape the process. Could be a REAL hoot with Scott in the middle of it.
I just went down to Bi-Lo (Grocery store) for some basics for breakfast and the apples I will be needing for the pie. I have nibbled on some chips and salsa to hold me over until the sleepy heads get up. I need to make some fresh coffee as I drank all I had made earlier - 3 cups... don't believe I need anymore.
OK... the new camera is AMAZING!!!! Here are some photos that I have taken this past week.
