The Cruiser Gets Towed

That's Rick....and the Cat Cruiser in this past Saturday's Niles Apple Festival Parade. I was riding on the boom box behind the cruiser waving to the crowd! What a day! I had a lot of fun, but boy was I tired at the end of the night.

Sooo many people came up to our table while we were doing a live broadcast after the parade. I was able to meet a lot of nice people...sorry that the prizes were a little corny!

Just another day outside the ranch!

Upper Case Living Project

Okay....so a friend of mine had an Uppercase Living party, so I decided to purchase this cute little fall saying to add to my decor. I was a little hesitant to stick any of these on my walls...in case I got tired of it too soon. Keep in mind, that I love to do crafts, but I am not the most artistic person in the world. I decided to place my saying on a board, which my hubby put some finishing details to. So, armed with spray paint and my decal...away I went.

Painting the board was not so hard...although I did have to move inside because it was too windy outside and I was getting grass clippings on my masterpiece. (I told you, not so artisitc) Anyway, gettting these letters to actually adhere to what I wanted them to was rather difficult. It took a lot of rubbing and manipulating. I thought this was supposed to be for the creatively challenged folks. I mean after all, if I could paint well, I wouldn't need these words. After about an hour and a half and many fingernail pull offs and resets, I finally finished my project. While the first and last words came out beautifully, the main lettering looks a little bad. I don't care, however, and have proudly displayed my project in my dinning area.

Next project....painting that hutch!

My Creamer Obsession!

It's that time of year again! The time of year when my favorite coffee creamer is available!

I absolutely love pumpkin creamer! I really don't know why it is considered a seasonal item, because so many people I know really love this flavor. So, after going without my little pick-me-up for several months now, I have decided to freeze my favorite creamer flavor so that I can enjoy the wonderful pumpkin taste long after it is no longer on store shelves. I have never attempted to freeze creamer, so if anyone has done this before, I would really love to hear about your results. Happy Fall!
