All you Catholics, or lent believing Christians out there remember to not eat meat today...it's the first Friday of lent! just eat fish if you're craving protein! I was a bad catholic today, I ate meat! and my hubby reminded me that lent is here and I shouldn't eat meat since I'm still a Catholic! ahhhh! I better remember next friday then...Happy lent season y'all!
You can't tell, but I am soooo nuts about my kitties, CiCi is fast asleep in my chair snuggling with a soft blankie and some of my pillows I made for myself...she really likes them, but I don't let her near the other pillows I sell for my etsy shop...isn't she sooooo cute???

Good news! I am going to be a first time aunt!!!! My sister in law is finally pregnant after trying for 4 years! I am glad there is new technology in making babies for couples who can't naturally get pregnant, only if it is used to a certain extent....but I am so happy that I will be "Auntie Lauren" my hubby is so excited to become an uncle...my future niece or nephew is due in mid October later this year, maybe my next birthday present will be a new niece/nephew! my b-day is oct. 5, and it could be born early! Here's hoping! I have never been an aunt before...hope I am a good one. Heck, it will be good practice until I start to have little darlins of my own in a couple of years or so...

I have a huge throw pillow jones here! I bought some fabrics off other etsy shops and I am making about 5-8 pillows per day to post on my etsy shop...the morning in my area offers peace and tranquility...birds are sings, kitties are mewing, and "trudy" lends me a helping hand in creations! what a day!

I have been away from the blogging world, but I did not drop off the face of the earth! Lots of things happened in the past few days! I got another job as an insurance agent's assistant, and today was my actual first day on the job! I have my own desk (right next door to my boss's office) and my boss is actually my husband's uncle...I call him goofy mike cause he is real funny, cracks jokes all the time, and talks a mile a minute! My etsy shop has had a real lucky streak lately! I'm talking about 9 sales in the last 3 days kind of lucky! I am searching for a car, have a couple possible opportunities in mind...Last Sunday, I went to visit my folks and sis...I t was good to be home for 1 whole day, have my sweet nurturing mother cook for me, make me a cozy spot in my old bed to snuggle in, and my mom and I were just having fun looking at fabric shops in the etsy world, and some of my mom's old books on fabric (she let me borrow one). My hubby and I filed our taxes today, we got back less money than we thought, and I know we can't come even close to buying the Chrystler Concorde that I have been eyeing...but luckily, there are a couple of potentials that are definitely in our price range! If we get the cheaper of the 2 cars, we will also get a nice 26 inch flat screen TV...YAY!!!!! Well a bit of bad news though, all of the baby finches died...I am sad about that, but it wasn't meant to be...One of my cats, Sabrina has been sick for a couple of days vomitting and feeling weak, but she is completely healthy again and full of energy! Hope y'all are having a great week, file those taxes while you can! I am glad we got ours done and overwith!

Bad news....we lost one of the baby chicks that just hatched. Zoe was frantic! I heard her chirping so loud, it sounded like she was crying...then I saw it, one of her poor little ones had passed away in the nest...I took it out and promised Zoe I would give it a proper burial. So I buried it under one of the trees outside. We do have 2 healthy baby chicks, and 2 other eggs that have not hatched yet...But I was still very sad to lose one, especially because Zoe seems to be in despair right now....

Yes, folks...we now have baby birds! the first two have hatched and I got to see one of them real good and it was wriggling around! I won't find out for a long time the genders of all the babies...but they are soooo tiny! Congratulations Zoe and Emmett! The newest mommy and daddy birdies on the block!

Today is my sweet maternal grandmother's 76th birthday! I call her "Nonie", and have been since I have started talking! But her real name is Lillian, and goes by Lilly by only my grandpa. If I ever have a daughter someday, I am wanting to name her after my grandma. I called her today to sing her happy birthday (hopefully I didn't sing too bad off key) She always enjoys all of her birthdays, every single year! In this picture, she is here with my grandpa, Bob and it was taken in April of 1954, about 14 months before they were married. She looks so beautiful, like a movie star...my mom always told me when Nonie was a young woman, she would wear her brightest of red lipstick, and her hair was short, but always styled so cute, chic, and classy, and had the most beautiful porcelain colored skin tone. Of course, I think she is still very beautiful only her face has carried the wisdom of her years. Hope you had a wonderful day, Nonie! I love you so very much! And here's to another 30 birthdays!

Before our guests arrive for the superbowl party my husband is throwing, my hubby is busy cooking away in the kitchen. He is making some jambalaya, chips and dip, and pictured is his yummy greek h'ordeurves with pita, hummus, cucumbers and cracked black pepper...I already sampled one and it is delicious! mmmmmmmm.....
