EVER HAVE ONE OF THESE???

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Happy Saturday! Yes, I think I have it straight now and know what day it is! What a way to start my day! But, rather funny the more I think about it!

I began with leaving HAPPY SUNDAY wishes on Huddles and referencing Sunday on my status here at Sparks! Thank Goodness others had referenced SATURDAY on their huddle comments, otherwise, I may still be thinking itís Sunday! Thank you, my friends, for straightening me out!

Yes, its


So, after a few
Iím back on track and loving the fact that itís SATURDAY but still with a few

along the way!

But, then we move on to the next event of my day! An hour or so goes by and, hmmm, I need another cup of coffee, so off to the coffee pot I go! Needless to say, there was my second ďI NEED A VACATIONĒ thought! I almost (thankfully) started pouring coffee into my mug, which is a travel sort of mug with a lid!!! I caught myself and thought, I should really start this SATURDAY over! Who wants to start cleaning up


I started thinking about going back to

for a bit and starting the day whole day over!

But instead of wasting those SATURDAY hours in bed, it's back to

Everyone and

Loviní the Day!

    It could be worse....a couple of times recently I've woken up on Saturday morning and thought that it was Friday, which starts me to wondering why work hasn't called me when it's already 7:00. (My shift starts at 5:00 so the one time I actually woke up an hour late because my new alarm clock reset itself...long story...I got a phone call around 5:45.)There's nothing like the panic of waking up and thinking that you're hours late for work.... emoticon

    Cute. Have a good day, no matter WHAT day it is! Since I retired 11 years ago, I seldom know what day it is! So, don't feel bad. I'm sorta sad it's Sat, I had intended to get up and go help at church; it's the day they do free lunch for folks :(
My bad. Maybe next Month I'll keep up! Duh, could always put it on my Spark's Planner!
I'm not quite with it today, either emoticon

IS IT THE.....

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Hi everyone! Hope everyone's week is going well! But, I don't know about you, but I have a question, and that is.....


I'm not sure, but maybe it's the Winter Weather, but I'm ready to hibernate until Spring! When I get up in the morning to go to work, it's dark outside, and, by the time I get home from work, it's dark again! I know they recommend 8 hours of sleep, but lately, I've been going above that 8 hours by an extra few!!

So, will someone please wake me up when the snow is gone, the temperatures are in the 60's and I don't have to bundle up before going outdoors? I want to get out and take the dogs for a nice warm walk while the sun is still shining after dinner and feel that same energy in the evening hours because the beautiful sun is still shining -- but there's always that wonderful weekend which is almost here and I'm ready!! Bring it on.....please??????

Have a great week everyone and keep looking forward to that weekend! It's coming and we're going to get there with a great smile on our faces!

DOES COLD WATER WORK?

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?

This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan.

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.

However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, 'Are these plates clean?'

His grandfather replied, 'They're as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!'

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, 'Are you sure these plates are clean?'

Without looking up the old man said, 'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as Cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!'

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

John yelled and said, 'Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted!

'Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!'

Meet Coldwater !


Have a fabulous STRESS FREE day! (And, maybe it's better to use a little warmer water to do your dishes!)

    My grandmother always claimed it was how her mother got some pushy neighbors to quit sponging off them. On the umpteenth Sunday dinner after church when the neighbors showed up just in time to be invited to eat, Grandmom said her mother, who usually refused to clean up until the neighbors left, picked up the plates and set them on the floor & called in the dogs to lick them clean. Once they were done, great-grandmother calmly put the plates back in the china cabinet. The neighbors never showed up for Sunday dinner again.
