Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I don't have pictures yet but we put in the rest of our veggies & a couple of strawberry plants this weekend.  The pumpkins, zucchini & strawberries will be wonderful once they get growing.  I already have fruit on the grape tomato plants I put in a month ago, and we are enjoying the fresh lettuce in our salads & on our burgers.

I also started cleaning off the front porch from the yard sale.  Most of the stuff went, but a couple things needed to get put back, tables, a chair that didn't sell, etc...  Just the S.H.E. in me I guess!  No one will ever accuse me of being B.O. (born organized).  But we are working on the everything in it's place (at least after it has a place).  Then we decided it was too hot to stay outside & do WORK.  So we temporarily retreated to the air conditioning!  Then the Princess & I will be off to start dinner!

Just had to share

Got this in my email today & I am still laughing over #7!  Not sure I agree with #1, but obviously someone finds it amusing.  And #6, don't get me started!!!

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."

I know I'm not going to understand women.
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax,
pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
and still be afraid of a spider

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication,
Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor,
"It is essential that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes."
He addressed the man,
"Can you name your wife's favorite flower?"
Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It'sPillsbury, isn't it?

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep, "the wife replied, "in-laws."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
"The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who
should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it because you get up first,
and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.
The husband said, "You are in charge of cooki ng around here and
you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says ......"HEBREWS"

9. The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man realized that the ne xt day, he would need his wife to wake him
at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
"Please wake me at 5:00 AM."He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:0 0 AMand he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go andsee why his wife hadn't wakened him,
when he noticed a piece of paper bythe bed.
The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.
God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece

Fat Quarter Swap

**Edited to be sticky***

Due to the overwhelmingly successful book giveaway... (just kidding! I knew it was a serioulsy niche book when I started!) I have decided to start a fat quarter swap. I am thinking that we'll have sign ups until the middle of June & then swap! Since I am feeling Patriotic after the fantastic Memorial Day weekend, that is our theme! I am not sure how I am going to run it, I think groups of 10 is more than enough. I think the last one I participated in was 10, so if we have the problem of lots of people signing up, I'll limit the size of groups to a more manageable number!

Fat Quarters must be at least 18" x 22," cotton, unwashed, and red/white/blue/patriotic themed.

To sign up sign in the Mr. Linky & link back to this post, if you don't blog it's ok. Just leave an email address so I can get a hold of you

My newest subscription.

I just recently subscribed to Blueprint Magazine. "The fresh Fun Guide to Personal Style" a Martha Stewart Magazine.

I found this link to a sweet quilt pattern from the May/June issue. Handmade Patchwork Quilt - a la Blueprint Magazine

I have only barely skimmed the 2 issues I've received, however I like what I see so far. It's like Martha but for the more modern clean younger style set. Not me AT ALL! I'm more of a cluttered, shabby chic kind of girl, but I am finding the clean line style really inspiring. Maybe I'll give it a try in a room or two & see how I feel.

Be forewarned that a bulk of the item featured that can be purchased are extremely pricey. I don't think I'll be buying that $275 pair of pumps or that $260 umbrella anytime soon, ya know!
