What were you doing up and at the computer at 3:00 in the morning, Hats? I was up myself at 2 something, heard a helicopter going overhead. Laid there a bit, and by the time I got up and looked out, it had passed by. Unusual at night. Did go and open the front door, and was rewarded with a beautiful clear sky full of stars! Can't remember the last time I looked up and actually had a clear view of some bright, some twinkling in the distance, stars. An unexpected smile.
Spoiler alert ****** another craft question ***** which I'm sure you are all sick of, but just got news Newton DIL is coming down Sunday with little Lilly, and her step bro and sis (13 and 18). Wonderful for me as far as cooking/baking, I'll make my Irish lasagna, salad, popovers (hope they come out this time!) probably an apple crisp for dessert plus either some whoopie pies or another batch of multi frosted cupcakes, and make up a cookie dough batch if Lilly wants to make them after. But, and here comes the alert *** Hats, you know what a zigzag piece is left after cutting out 2 wreaths from the foam - didn't know they were coming when I was at Dollar Store yesterday, or I'd have picked up another piece. Guess I didn't go down that aisle anyway, so - but my question, any suggestions I could give them for something to decorate out of the scraps? If not, I may run up to the dollar store again - really need to attend to stuff around this house. Thanks. I seem to be turning to you, my latest craft magazine (haha) all the time for ideas!
Your company leaves today, I believe, Pingo. Are you still planning on flying out tomorrow or Friday? Weather permitting -
Kargiver, sorry you are having such a time getting in. Is it getting in or posting? Just when you think they have some problems solved, they crop up again.
Printed out kids poems last night and frustrated because even tho I set the spacing at 1.0, they came out double spaced, making the pages much too long for card stock I want to use. Wonderful Google - asked, "How can I get single spacing on Wordpad?" and back came a page of answers from others who had asked before me. The simplest reply was, "Involves using one more key, but at the end of each line, instead of just hitting "enter", hit "ctrl and enter". It works! So simple. Posting it in case anyone else is experiencing the same problem.
This post is long enough to hold me all day, I believe - but no promises!
