My Apologies

I ran into a snaffu prepping for today's listings, and had to go to JoAnn's for some supplies.

I may not get my listing up tonight, so, if I don't, it'll be double the fun listings tomarrow.

I'm bummed that this has happened, especially since I myself am sooo excited about my store's new stuff!

Sheffield Junction

Once upon a time, there was a logging railroad called the Tionesta Valley Railroad. And it interchanged with America's first and oldest railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio at a place called Sheffield junction.
.

In 1945, the tracks were pulled from the Tionesta Valley's right of way, and eventually, the (successorsof the) B&O ceased operations on it's track and sold track rights to the Knox & Kane Railroad, where neglect led to the eventual legal blockage of rail operations on the trackage.

The interchange included some B&O sidings, a station, and several sidings plus a wye for the Tionesta Valley.
.

We figured out where the interchange and station were last fall, but yesterday, we roamed around and found the rest of the right of way! You could even tell where the railroad ties were!

It was about 60 degrees out and sunny, so it was a perfect day!
.

Here's some pics from our exploring and taking advantage of everyone's great moods:

Crawling Out of a Hole

Lots of exciting things happening right now!

Sewing!
Knitting!
Scrapbooking!
Baby Chasing!
Shoe Shopping!

My apologies that blogging did not make the top 5. In fact, for the past week, it hasn't existed. I amend that soon enough. But for now, I'm off to do some laundry and bathe a baby!

Lets Talk Poop


Or at least poo stains on diapers.
Let's face it. It happens! And no amount of Clorox bleach will remove the stains, but it will ruin the color of your pretty cotton outers. So what's a girl to do?
Put them in the sun, stained side out!
It's the miracle poop bleach! (Yes I know how odd that sounds!) But it works!
And today, I can not only access the clothes line, it's also clear and sunny! It's cold, but it doesn't have to be warm to work. Which is great!
:::crosses fingers that today's sun is enough:::

Steak Instead of Cake-J Tuned 33 Today!

Happy birthday, Big Bear!

J gave up sweets for Lent, so I made him a 16 oz ribeye insteak of a cake




The kids had a blast w/ our party favors- the same favors we've had for about 4 years now!




Of course, I bought him Eddy's Girl Scout Tagalong Ice Cream. 2 containers full. We ate half of one (J included), and after dinner it returned to the basement freezer to join the other until April 12th. I also made him a mini Warm Delight chocolate cake. It's his birthday! He had to have at a least a little cake and ice cream!

It's Dr Seuss' Birthday!



Born March 2, 1904, today, one of the most famous author's to ever pen a children's book would be 105 years old!

Here's some fun projects you can make or do this month in honor the Man who made a Grinch endearing:

Make your own Home-made Books.
Give the children a variety of craft supplies and recycling items (for example, glue, toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, pipe cleaners, felt, yarn, pom-poms, wiggle eyes, etc.) and challenge them to create their own unique creature like those in many of Dr. Seuss' books. Encourage them to write a story about their creature.
Make this Horton Hears a Who craft.
Create your own Dr. Seuss coloring book using some of these pictures.
Make your own Cat-In-The-Hat hat or a cat ear headband.
Create your own Cat-in-The-Hat story sacks.
Create your own Horton Hears a Who story sack.
Print out this Dr. Seuss bookmark to color.
Make this Green Eggs and Ham Placemat.
Print out this Cat in The Hat maze or dot-to-dot to do.
Make birthday cards and hang them around the room.
Make some of these Grinch Crafts.
Try some of these Dr. Seuss Printables.
Make a Cat-in-the-Hat Hat.
See how many of these Dr. Seuss characters you know.
See if you can match the quotes with the characters who said them.

I'm especially excited to see what characters my children will make!

So today, sit down, and share your favorite Dr Seuss story with someone you love!

Just Call Me Speedy

I'm a pretty conservative driver. After a couple ugly crashes a few years ago, including a head-on with a deer, I have become a more aware driver.

But yesterday was sunny, and for the first time in months, I didn't have to worry about ice and snow on the roads, and I wasn't paying attention on a strait-a-way. I saw the unmarked police car. I thought, "wow! A gold one!" I should have been watching my speedometer more. 'Cause he pulled me over. For 65 in a 55.

Just a warning, but boy am I embarrassed. I'm the last person that should be speeding. When I told J, he laughed. I'm mortified and he laughed. Go figure.

Note to self: watch my speed better when cruising past the potatoe farm.
