1. I’m surprised by how many hits I get on this blog from people who have searched for Western Salad Dressing. Seriously. At least once a day if not more. I feel like I ought to be posting more recipes using it to provide a useful service to the community of folks who are searching for it. Hey — I might have to post our family’s secret dip that uses Western dressing…it’s a recipe my Mom’s side of the family MUST have at every family gathering. My husband and children thinks it’s gross.
2. I have ladies coming Wednesday morning to learn to knit. THey are making felted bags, and of course I have to be making a new one along with them. I started with a brown base for the bag (purely because it was skein of yarn that had been wound into a ball as an example when we get the ball winder and had to test it). I totally horked up a skein of pink last week, so after I untangled it, I decided to use it with the brown. I was going to just do brown and pink stripes, but now that I have one brown and one pink stripe done, I think I might need to add in cream stripes, too.
3. On the way home, I saw a man walking a Beagle puppy. OMG. I want a Beagle puppy.
4. I don’t seem to have a concussion, but I do have a sore spot from my head injury. And my sister-in-law can attest that you can actually see the mark where I whacked myself. My guardian angel works overtime. One of these days I’m going to hurt myself very badly, purely out of clumsiness.
5. I haven’t talked about digital scrapbooking in awhile (because I haven’t been doing any…imagine that…) but coming up here soon is an opportunity that you should think about if you have any interest in the subject at all. The classes I’ve taken in the past have been with Jessica Sprague — and starting on the 9th she is offering a free class called Stories in Hand. For all of the info, you can visit her website: http://www.jessicasprague.com/ — the details are on the home page. You do NOT have to be a digital scrapbooker to do this class, the class is about developing a way to capture the stories you want to record and remember, whether you are a scrapbooker or not.
6. I have to work on feeding my boys. Those three boys. They think they need to be fed every single day.
thanks so much for pointing out jessica sprague’s site! I’ve never looked for such a site, but have registered for her free class as it seems to dovetail nicely with the storytelling quilt process I’m engaging in
“horked up”……. hadnt heard that term before.
just saw jessica’s site the first time today after getting there from mary’s post about her class. looks like jessica has lots of interesting classes.

OMG! Beagles! DS’s sax instructor has the sweetest little beagle dog! I LOVE this dog.
Of course, she is very old, so she’s lost the puppy energy. However, she is so energetic that I wonder what she was like when she was young!
Be forewarned. They can be quite rambunctious dogs. But then that could be a perfect match for a couple of rambunctious boys! 😉
Thanks for the class info and – luv your blog! Happy Scrappin’!

You know how much I love Beagles! When Penny had her puppies (9 of them), I wanted to keep them all! As you know, we kept two of them. They have the nicest temperment, and they love to snuggle. Yes, they can get very loud when excited, but they are smart and easy to train, too! I had the entire litter housebroken before I sent them to new homes!
