Happy Sunday .... busy day yesterday; got my basket ready to be bagged up !! WOOHOO !

Sunday, October 21, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Went to breakfast with my friend from puppy club ... and had a wonderful time .. Thankfully I didn't take up all the talking time .... we had alot of fun, and she gave me the last of her donation to the basket as well as the basket itself .. lol .. I had my hands full ..I told her that I could get the last of it, and we could just split up the bill at the end .. She's busy with her 3 dogs, and work .. and well -- I'm busy but I do have spare time .... and she jumped at that offer fast .. She really doesn't like shopping anyway .. (her hubby is like mine, and does all that .. lol) So I was happy with that, because I really wanted to get this off my shoulders.. I want it done, because I don't know when hubby and I are going to be going to Vegas for vacation, and I didn't want to do it with time pressure, because then nothing works ..

After I left the restaurant, I drove home, only to find that hubby was out and about, so I brought all the stuff in, and left a note that I was making a few errands; and would be back .. I was only a text away if he wanted me home earlier .. so I turned around and left again to get some last minute stuff that we talked about .. and some bags for wrapping the basket up .. so I ran to Micheals, and found what I needed, but forgot the magnets for what I wanted to do .. There was no way all this stuff would fit into the basket without going up .. and thought I could put a cookie pan in there with some magnets on some of the lighter items .. but walked out of Micheals without any magnets .. just my bags .. *sigh*

I thought I think I have some at home and was heading toward Meijers to get the candy and would see what they have there; and would get the cookie pan there .. but alas .. I walked into the DIY section; (their definition of hardware), and found velcro .. Hey .. I could use velcro and then I wouldn't need the pan .. I could cover up some of my thick posterboard, and use the velcro on that .. :) YAY ME !!!!

While I was at Meijer, I got a text from hubby; just as I was walking out to the car and realized I forgot the honey that Julie had wanted in the basket (honey for tea) so texted hubby back as I was walking back to the store, that I was at Meijer; and would be home on my next stop ..

As I was checking out; all of a sudden he was there .. lol .. I was pleasantly surprised; and he asked if I got any of the stuff that he talked with me about .. I said no .. that was his game, and I was just there for the stuff that Julie and I talked about at breakfast .. :)

So --I went on my way; and headed for home .. and hauled off of my treasures upstairs, with the basket, and stood there looking .. HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS ?? (hubby wasn't home yet) .. So -- I decided to bring out my Modpodge (crafters glueall) and found some material, to make a back drop (which you really can't see much of .. lol) and decided to get myself elbow deep into glue .. WOOHOO !!!! and had a ball !!!! (I was that "girl" that went out and found the first mud puddle growing up

ANYWHO .... I was having my fun with glue and material and posterboard .. and planning what I wanted to do .. Brought out my fishing line to secure some of the stuff .. and my velcro to secure others ... and started in .. This morning I'll put the bag on .. but not close it up .. because you know as soon as I do, the stuff is going to start to fall .. lol lol .. but I'll put it IN the bag ..(my next step .. the actual trial is thanksgiving weekend)

I did it .. I got everything in there, without it looking stuffed in .. lol .. the only thing I have left is a small scarf, that was knitted or crochet'd with little paw prints in it .. that's going to be part of the bow on the top ..

Someone asked me to post pictures of my before and after Ice Cube experiment ... the only problem I have left is the carpet outside the organ parameter, is not 20 year faded lol .. I can still see some of the divits but not as bad as it was .. and pretty much because I know where they are .. lol

but here's my before and after photos .. :)

TD, Uly and Lolli were up to mischief again .. lol ..

Uly found my 4 port USB port and thought it was a puppy bone, and gave it to Lolli to play with ..

Then of course TD and Uly couldn't get away with anything, but found a sushi treat .. :)

That Uly camera is the best thing that we could have bought .. they are growing up now, and are good most times, but still have that imp in them ... lol lol ... I caught TD with the drone controller, and thankfully they don't know where the switch is for the drone yet .. lol .. He got a talking to for that one .. that he has to wait for us to be with him to play with it .. It's only a Uly/TD size drone, but it still can hurt .. (I found that out the hard way

Okay --- Need to get myself some breakfast .. Going over by mom this afternoon, and looking forward to it .. :) but want to get the basket in the bag this morning before I go .. :) So wishing everyone a great day !!! I have a busy week ahead of me, and I'm looking forward to it .. :) I also have some stops I want to make before going to mom's .. :)

Wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!!!

    the basket looks so good. When I try to make them, they never look professional. I guess I need to really get myself together and work harder at achieving this. I have about 4 I need to make for the holidays

    Love the basket. That ice experiment was a great idea. I’m going to try that the next time I’m moving furniture around.

    that was me who asked for the before and after pictures. The ice worked really well. Your basket looks very nice and the idea 2 use a cookie tin 2 support the basket was a very clever idea. Nice work!
