Ahhhh . . . livin' the life ~

Here's my son Brad's cat again, Paxton. Don't you think he has a hard life? :)

Sweet images that I love ~

We had a wonderful Father's Day. We relaxed at home and DH made a yummy meal for us because he just loves to cook. Chicken Enchiladas, Shrimp Bisque and Lemon Pound Cake!!! Delish!

Today we start getting ready for our BIG yard sale this Saturday. I have tons of things to price and signs to make!
Hope you have a very happy Monday!!!
xxoo, Dawn

It all looks yummy and enchiladas are my favorite!!! That cat is so funny! It seems like cats just drop wherever they want in whatever position is most convienent and that's how they stay! Angie

That cat is hilarious. You need to put him on I Can Haz Cheezburger with a cute caption. :)
Your dinner looks yummy! We had ribs (which Jim cooked because I am not allowed to grill. Something about hamburgers that could be used as hockey pucks.) I did make Pioneer Woman's Crash Hot Potatoes and they are delicious!
Oh, and you know I am coming to your yard sale next week! I would not miss it for anything. :)

Ohh, this looks Yummy!
Looks like you all had a Goode day.
A Yard Sale at your house, Now that would be fun. I can only imagine the treasures I'd find.

Good luck with your yard sale. Here's a tip we used for ours this year. We bought colored round labels (2 packs with 4 different pack was fluorescent, the other regular) at the office supply store. I made a couple of posters with the labels (I put several labels together to form a little flower-like blob) and a corresponding price. For example, light green = 10 cents; medium green 0= 25 cents; dark green = 50 cents, etc. I used these labels for prices up to $10 (10 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, $1, $2.50, $5, $7.50, $10). Anything that I wanted more than $10 for, I made a hand-written label. We were selling most of our stuff for under $10. Since I didn't have to write on labels, it was the fastest pricing preparation I've ever done. And our customers loved it, especially the kids!

Dawn, You are sweet and thoughtful to update me on the mail progress, but I truly feel no rush. I am enjoying the anticipation. I drive my daughter nuts because I am never in a rush for presents. I always enjoy the wait. Winning your art = big present for me.

So, I continue to enjoy my wait. Of course, I will let you know when it arrives. Thanks again for all the joy.

Forgot to add, I also took digital pictures of everything that was left at the end of the sale, before packing the items up for donation. That way, I have an accurate list for itemizing what I donated when tax time comes around.

Dawn, I just saw the latest Somerset Studio with your article! It is so wonderful! Congratulations!!!! Jenny Doh also was kind enough to reprint my artwork and correct the credit error in last months issue on my piece. So we are both in there together-haha! Your page is such a restful way to finish the magazine.
huge hugs,

Elizabeth said...

Sarah told me to hurry over here and see that you are published in one of my favorite magazines. Congratulations! I will have to go get that one. Wow! You must be so happy!

I'm very happy for you!

I love your cat and would like a bite of that yummy-looking cake!

Ohh to have the life of a kitty. So very sweet in deed.

Hubby made a very nice dinner. I am glad that you all had a nice day.

Have fun with your yard sale and hope you sell lots.

That precious kitty looks so soft. Yummy goodies too. HMMM

Lucky you on a man that can cook. (besides biscuits and gravy) LOL



Heidi said...

Yum. Food. I think I'm hungry!

I love Jessi Wilcox Smith art!!!


Sandy said...

Yes, that is the life~lazing around like a cute kitty, having hubby cook his own Father's Day dinner, and devouring all that delectable food! I'd like to try all three, only with the cat nap after eating! Sounds like you did have a great day!

Good luck on the yard sale!
