A Wife's Poem and Free Vintage Christmas Image

Hi Everybody!

How's your week going? It's been really busy around here. We've been watching the grandkids for our daughter while our DIL, their normal sitter, takes a vacation. They have been keeping us on our toes. lol But, I must say, they've been a nice distraction!

I am suffering from a massive writers block this week, so I thought I'd do the easy thing and share this little ditty that we received from a friend. I thought it was so cute! Perfect for those new wives when things get a little tough. lol

A Wife's Poem
Author unknown

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were to hard
Not at all like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Then I turned around and
smacked the s##t out of him...
Like his mother used to do.

I wonder does anybody perk their coffee anymore? I used to when we were tent camping but I can't say that I've done it anytime in the recent past. How about you?

I thought I'd share this really cute husband/wife Vintage Christmas Card with you. Make sure you click on it before you save it.

Don't forget about the Christmas BOGO sale going on over at my Art Fire Store. Just click on the little girl and clock image up there in the right hand corner.

Have a great week, plumb full of smiles!

BOGO Sale at ArtFire and Free Vintage Christmas Image

Hi Everyone,

How's your week been? Great I hope. It's still really hot here, staying pretty much in the 90's. We thought maybe we'd get some rain yesterday, but it sure didn't amount to much. I don't think it even got the ground wet.

It's been a pretty busy week. We took care of all that corn and it's all in the freezer now. It sure will taste good this winter. At the last count, I think we had 50 quart bags full of corn. That sounds like a lot, but I bet it goes fast once we start using it.

Have you checked out my new store yet? I have a BOGO sale going on over there. The sale is on all the Christmas Cut Outs/Digital Collages as well as the individual images. I've added some brand new Christmas images. I'm kind of behind on the Christmas in July festivities, but I'm trying to catch up. So if you haven't taken a peek hop on over there by clicking here .

I thought I'd share a Christmas in July image this week. I love all the Christmas elements on this image - Santa, a filled stocking and a sleeping child. As usual, make sure you click on it before you save it.

Have a great week, plumb full of smiles!

Free Vintage Tall Ship Image and New Shop Announcement

Wow! Did you think I deserted you? I can't believe it's been that long since I've posted. What have I been up too? Well, it seems like I've been super busy but I can't remember hardly a thing that's taken up my time. Is that having a senior moment or it is just called life? lol

Well, let me see... what has happened....

Trevor's come home! We are so glad he arrived safely from Afghanistan. He's back to doing his normal activities and guess what? He proposed to his girlfriend and she accepted. We're all very excited about it! They're talking maybe a September wedding, but nothing definite yet.

We celebrated 6 birthdays... whew that's a lot in that short amount of time. We're still in the middle of a legal battle - I'm so tired of it, I just wish it would hurry and get over.

Our temperatures around here have been outrageous, like a lot of other poor souls in this great country of ours. I think we've been in or around the 100 degree mark for 2 weeks now. Thank God for air conditioning... lol And we're also in a drought... very little rain to relieve that temperature. But the tomatoes are doing just fine - can't wait for that first home grown tomato to ripen up and we're deep in the sweet corn season. Hubby just brought me about 200 lbs of corn to shuck and freeze... guess I'll be busy for a while.. lol

We had hardly any sour cherries this year and the berries were a little sparse, although we did get enough for Jordan, my granddaughter to make her first cherry and her first raspberry pie. She did a great job and the family really enjoyed them.

I'm very excited to announce that I have created a new store. I have wanted to offer individual images for quite a while now and felt that the fees associated with Etsy or ebay made this cost prohibitive. So I joined a new site - Art Fire. Have you heard of it? I'm a little slow on checking out these kinds of things, so you may have already visited it. lol But anyway, it is another great community very similar to Etsy. So if you have a moment, take a look at my new store by clicking here . I'll be adding more individual images as time permits, so be sure and visit it often.

Today I thought I'd share a tall boat image with you. It's been so hot here that just thinking about ocean breezes makes life a little more bearable. So as usual, make sure you click on the image before you save it.

Well, that's it for now, I promise it won't be so long before my next post.

Have a great week, plumb full of smiles!
