Beautiful giveaway

Lynn from is having the beautiful giveaway pictured above. She is also doing some followup prizes. Go over and have a look. I must spend more time there when I get home.
I have been packing and loading up the van and there is never enough room. It seems the must take list gets bigger every year and the little space shrinks every year. I took 5 boxes to the post office yesterday - 1 to my daughter with books and things for the grandkids and the other four to my house.

My son wanted to know if I had the fridge fixed and it dawned on me that Pauline (otherwise known as FredaB) told you all the bad things about it but not the good fix. I called first thing Mon. morning and he said because it was a fridge he would try and move his appts. around and he showed up at 9 am. Could have kissed him. It was a starting relay. Apparently the click I heard was the compressor trying to start but the relay couldn't. So if you ever hear clicks coming from your fridge open the freezer door to make sure everything is not melting and call your repair guy. It did cost close to 200.00 but he said I shouldn't have anymore problems - lets hope so considering it is going to be unplugged for the next 6 months.

Harv and I went over to the Eustis fairgrounds this morning where we usually go to buy fruits and vegs. They have a very large building filled with food vendors. There were quite a few outside vendors also and of course you know who found some more bargains. I didn't have time to take pics but when I get back to Chicago I will round them up and show you.

Well I am signing off now as I will be packing this up tomorrow. I won't be posting for a few days. We will be home Sun. night if all goes well - unpacking the van Monday and Tues. I am one of the hostesses for our Questers end of the year luncheon. I am either paying for wine or for the paper products so they made it easy for me. I am a good dishwasher so will do cleanup duty. Wed. I will unpack stuff and thurs. have my 6 month dental check so it may be a week before I am back. Take care all and enjoy the spring and all the pretty flowers people have been showing.

My goodness, woman! You make me exhausted just reading about what you're doing.

I hope you have a great trip. It's so nice to get away sometimes.

Your pincushions are darling. And I love your flea market finds. I must be living in the wrong part of the country. I never see those kinds of deals. LOL.

Thanks for visiting and for your words of encouragement. I trust that big strides are being made in curing cancers. Sadly, not enough, soon enough.

I'm so happy to hear that you remain cancer free! My thoughts are with you. Take care.
Take care.
