Scrap a Day, July 18th

Post by blbabe1234 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 9:31 am

Good morning cherries! Never made it to my room yesterday. I was brain dead after work and just vegged in front of the TV after dinner. DH bought a sling shot at Academy over the weekend so we were practicing shooting at a box. Its harder than you'd think. Funny. I have no problems at the Shooting Range, archery, or even shooting hoops, but a sling shot...probably because its all me. DH would say "You're aiming high" but it looked fine to me. But then I'd hit air above the box and I'm like "yeah..that was high". LOL. We didn't last long outside because its so darn hot. Even in the shade. And the time we were out there yesterday, was the stupid bird out and about? NOPE. Figures right? I hope he's scared now! LOL

So who has scrappy plans for today? Me - I sure hope so. At least start SOMETHING.

How about you?

Good morning!

I took my spare hour that I had last night and worked on cleaning my scraproom. It's a MAJOR disaster. Hard to do by myself with this big pregnant belly but I got some good work done. Slow and steady is key!

I'm really inspired to change it all around and to get new organizing things for it next week (hope it doesn't count against my no spend on scrapbook supplies!). I desperately need to organize so I can USE my stuff!

I hope to find time to scrap soon too but I want to focus on getting everything set so I can actually use my room and stop scrapping on the living room floor haha (the HUGE dining room table is not my first choice because the chairs are not comfy after about a half hour).

Hey everyone! We made it back from our Caribbean Cruise and had a fantastic time. Been catching up on laundry and no time for scrapping yet. My older DD Marla's birthday is today. We also celebrated it on the ship with some of the crew singing Happy Birthday and a little cake.

Hope everyone is well here.

WTG on getting organized! And I wouldn't count the organizing items towards your scrappy supplies. So I think you're good!Image

Quick hi!!  Had to be ready for work early as the cleaners came at 7am.  At lunch time ran to get a card and wrap for bridal shower tonight.  Stopped home to eat real quick.  O. M. G.!!!  They scrubbed and cleaned EVERY - THANG!!!  
And my house smelled heavenly clean!!!  DH even commented and he does not make a fuss over anything!!  I have enough time to run home and shower, then off to future SIL's shower.  I do not want to leave my house, it is so nice!  

Have a great day all!

Danggggg! And that's why I can't live up there. Anything below 40% gives me a headache and anything below 20% gives me a nosebleed.

Its 3pm and we are 93, Heat Index of 106. Humidity is 66%. And I can breathe...lol

I do NOT envy you your heat or humidity, Brandy and Carrie!  Well, maybe Carrie's humidity, lol.  Our average humidity is in the 60 to 70% range, it seems.  When it drops below 50% it is so much nicer outside.  Only been getting up to the low 90's, but with 70% humidity, that sucks!  Last night, the humidity dropped and it only is getting to the low 80's today. It seems so nice!  I am going outside on my deck to read, now that it is in the shade. :)

Haven't gotten any scrapping done in a week. Left last Friday for our anniversary trip up to Geneva-on-the-Lake.  Lots of wine tasting, good food, and relaxation. Since I got home I have been working on the online class I'm taking and let me tell you, it is not going quickly!  Each lesson is taking me about 3 hours...and that's 3 hours I could be scrapping!  Afterward, I don't even want to sit at the computer, but my studio is in such a mess, I can't get motivated to paper scrap, either. Guess cleaning and organizing needs to be next on the agenda!

Seems like we avg the same humidity wise. Right now anyways. Ours is 66%

Glad you had a wonderful anniversary. Sorry that online course is taking longer than expected. 3 hrs per lesson! Yikes! How many lessons are there?
