Yup..another bummer...our friends from AK won't be able to come down this summer...was SOOOO looking forward to seeing them again! Committments...sometimes get in the way of what we WANT!
I've been looking at pc's...for church. The one there is 5 years old and has decided, since connecting to the net last week, that the memory is full and also no room on the hard drive AND the printer is acting up... The Geek Squad guy said he usually recommends an upgrade, BUT since we're still in the stoneage with our technology, we really should upgrade TO A NEW COMPUTER! YEAH, RIGHT! THAT'S not in the budget! So going to try and delete...something... There is one at Best Buy WITH A PRIINTER for less than $500... My thoughts? Why spend a dollar to save a dime with upgrades when a new one is not so much?
Seems the wall hangings are on hold for a couple weeks probably. Our outdoor ministry is going to the fair...the KALS ministry fair on the 1st of March, so, that has to be prepared for...with displays and A BANNER. That's right...I went shopping today for to think of how to do the pattern, BUT I'VE GOT ALMOST TWO WEEKS...right?

Thursday ~ February 14, 2008
***HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY*** and ***IT'S THE ANNIVERSARY OF OUR FIRST DATE*** A blind date...and look what happened! Four awesome kids and five equally awesome grandkids! God has blessed us with so much and continues to shower down His abundant grace every minute.
We did get to see our friends...but only for several hours one day last week. Better that than not! We will see them several times during the summer...and hopefully, before then, too.
Tonight we will have a few friends over...for spaghetti (yup...what we had on our blind date) and Alaska talk. Two will be going this summer...the other two probably next year. We'll be giving them the whole scoop...where to stop for fuel/night/eat/see...and feeling sad we can't go with them.
The weather can't decide...snow...sun...wind (not a lot here)...rain...kinda like SPRING weather. Do you suppose??? SPRING is almost here???!!! Been keeping track of Talkeetna weather and they were colder than us for about a, again, about the same...just what we were told two years ago when we started our 'owning a piece of Alaska' adventure.
I've made 16 wall hangings so far...and, so far, haven't sold any, but given most to family (whether they wanted them or not). Maybe soon they will take off with selling...also thinking I'll send some to Talkeetna this spring. There HAS TO BE ONE OR TWO cruise passengers that want one hanging in their homes to remember their trip!
