Whoo...time flies

Because I lost my license (somewhere in my house) I had to go get a duplicate license this morning. Last time it took 30 it took 2 and a half HOURS! The place was packed! I'm not sure why, but most everyone I talked to had plans to come yesterday and decided today would be better...hahaha, NOT. And while I am talking about the DL office...why do they ALL look the same? If I had not known what town I was in...I would have sworn I was in Asheville, or Wilmington, or Gastonia, or Durham (all the places I have previously gotten licenses). All NC ones must look the same...I am sure they were all built at the same time and obviously by the same people! After making some life-long friendships AND finding a nice plumber, I went off to ..... VOTE Not many people were there...until I finished my paperwork...and then the place was packed...everyone was so nice and having a great time and I LOVE voting Tuesday I am sure they won't smile and laugh quite as much...before I left my pic was snapped and we downloaded it to my phone so I could post it...I look a little sneaky if you ask me and maybe I feel that early seems a little sneaky! But I can get on with my life for a week ...came home and didn't feel like cleaning or sewing I decided to BAKE ...I used a new biscotti recipe that I won't use sounded so good, Chocolate-Cherry Biscotti..mmmmm, but well I need to find another one, they look great, but the taste, no...they can be way better. So off to find my old chocolate biscotti recipe and make them the right way! I also made a few doctor's appts...I got my son in tomorrow (shock) to check on his deep-sounding chest cough (and he came home from school and his left side is hurting) ...I had pluracy as a child and I sure hope that's not his problem ...I'm guessing pneumonia...but he has no fever...hmmmm. I also made my 1000th cancer check-up...ok, exagerating...but it feels like my flu shot in the morning...and that's just the start. I'll have to call dentists and gyno docs tomorrow. I remember telling my parents a few years ago that all they ever do is dash out the door to a drs appt...and now here I am...always dashing out the door for a drs appt. Blecch!

a mish-mash

I have been working on a few projects....and have some that I can do the finishing on tomorrow. I think it's way fun to do a bunch of projects at the same I am nuts too.

The LAST of my

I believe Fred....

I was all ready to go vote today....I lost my driver's license and also discovered my bank card gone too! Tomorrow I will go vote and get a new DL and have the bank issue another card...hate it when a plan doesn't come together!

More stuff....

I went and did a little shopping Friday...hit quite a few stores and didn't find the twins a coat...and a 'stuffy'...

...and I didn't see anything in Hobby Lobby but a few pieces of flannel and a few remnants...a few patterns...and well, quite disappointing when I was ready to SPEND!!!!

This and that...

Oh's supposed to be close to freezing tonite... I'm kinda ready...Picked some flowers today and put on my tables...and moved some flowers into the 'shed'...and took a few pics of some pretties...a little mum and pansy love...

I got the Christmasy things done...well, sort of...I made name placemats for the girls and one for their mom and dad...Kaylin can set the table...I have napkins made to match...but the names were bigger than I needed, so the placemats are 18"x 14", too big really but I suppose they can use them wherever they need a!

....the babies and Kaylin and Mom are coming in tomorrow...Patrick is on a training mission, so he won't be here...but they won't be staying long...apparently Patrick got some big news and will need to talk it out. So they will head back early! I can never catch a break!
