Predictable procrastinator!

I always heard the older you get, the faster time passes. With every passing day, this becomes more of a reality.  My plans this week were to C L E A N house with special emphasis on my craft room but have I done any of it?  Nooooo..   I've been really busy, but have not accomplished anything on my list of  to do's.  Predictable?  oh yes!

Yesterday, I had breakfast with a dear high school friend, Mirtha, and the topic of  where does the time go? was part of our discussion.  We have so much fun when we get together but we don't make it happen often enough because of being so "busy".  She is a remarkable lady and I'm so blessed to be freind.  We are looking forward to our 50th high school reunion next May..  Talk about where did the time go?  I'm not old enough to be going to a 50th reunion!  Sheesh!

When I opened this up today to share a 'Little Bit of Me' I saw that I tend to use the expression "shucky darn" and "still kickin" often, too. Predictable? oh yes!  So, if you tend to read here, you may hear those terms quite a bit..  Maybe it is just the "Suuthen" (translates to Southern) in me.

So, this predictable procrastinor must say "Lynda, get 'er done" and get busy!!

Ooops, before I go, here is a quick peek of one of  the projects done at an all day class with Lovely Linda Crofton a couple of weeks ago.  Soooo much fun!  I've used the picture that Linda took of it and posted.

Be blessed and thanks for stopping by..

'til next time {hugs}

Still kicking!

Well, shucky darn - the Good Lord was willing and the creek did rise (more on that later) but I must admit, I've been one lazy blogger!  or am I just one compulsive procrastinator?  Maybe just both!  But I am going to TRY to do better.. the operative word = TRY.. 
It is going to take me a while to catch up but I am going to TRY!
Let's see, my last post was way back in January and since I can't remember that long ago (LOL) where will I start?

I'll skip to the first of March which took us down to the Orange Lake for a week.  It is our favorite resort and we tend to go down at least once a year.  It was the oldest Grandangel's Spring break and she and her college room mate made our place a place their home base and spent lots of time doing what tourist do.. 
Florida, Here We Come!!!

Ready for dinner and a movie..
Fins to the left of us  - fun at Margaritaville
Perfect, Beautiful Roommates
Bubba and Forrest!
The end of a great night and beginning of a fun week!

Of course, there were many many more pictures taken and we had a great time. 

I always take crafting stuff wherever I go and I actually did finish a bracelet (which I gave to the Grandangel - surprise surprise). While I played a daily round of Bingo by the pool, hubs dangled his feet in the water.  I also enjoyed reading the Kindle out by the pool.  I'm still amazed at the ability to read that screen in the bright sunlight.  Thank you, Kindle! 

As all good things must come to an end, we reluctantly headed home after a fun filled week of FL sunshine and most assurely enjoyed having the girls there when they weren't out and about!

The rest of the month was probably normal routine including going to our STARS Stamp Club monthly meeting and my friend Sharon and I went to a Painted Petals Card workshop at Archiver's in Raleigh.  Crafting always makes me happy!

Well, I've blogged out today..

Be blessed and thanks for stopping by..
'til next time {hugs}
