Monday Morning Staff Meeting

Welcome to the Monday Morning Staff Meeting. I'm sorry there's no food because I was too busy to cook. I was labeling 570 blog posts yesterday afternoon (and evening). I might have some Ritz crackers in the pantry. Just help yourself. Grab the peanut butter while you're at it.

Each week I keep notes on the information I want to cover in the weekly meeting and this week I've got a very long list.

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for their encouragement and support for my upcoming venture. Thanks also to the entrepreneurial women who share their talents.

I know that many of you are not campers (yeah, Chocolatechic, I'm talking about you), but I found a place in Idaho that is calling my name. I'd love to take a road trip out to Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast. No electricity, just a cool tent, separate camp kitchen structure and a big campfire ring. Can you imagine the dark sky nights out there?

Wouldn't it be fun to have a blogging getaway? If Huckleberry Tents don't appeal to you, perhaps we could meet at the Luana Spa in Hawaii.. You can sleep in a yurt in Hawaii. What's not to love about that?

Where would you like to have a get together? Any great spots you'd like to share?

Just a seasonal reminder to start watching the Iowa Corn Cam. Check in everyday to see the exciting growth progress.

I want a Chupacabra to keep me company while I'm sewing. What do you think?



Christina makes them, along with other cute stuff.

There's a fun new fabric called "Dick and Jane", and yes, it has the artwork from our long ago schoolbooks. I'm wracking my brain because I think that Dick and Jane had a baby sister but I can't remember her name. Can you remember?

OK, that's it for me. I'm fried from yesterday's marathon session labeling my posts. I'm turning the meeting over to you. What's on your mind today?

Dick and Jane's sister is Sally...I know because that is my sister's name..can you tell we are products of the 50's? I love the fabric! Good luck in your new venture....I know that you will do great!

I brought along the leftover birthday cake from dear daughter's Sweet Sixteen party. The buttercream isn't quite homemade but it doesn't taste like sweetened lard and it goes great with a cup of coffee. A crowd of teenagers ate half of what I projected they'd eat on Saturday, so we'll be eating leftover sliders for lunch, leftover chips, and leftover salad for a few days still...

Nancy said...

I am sorry that you spent your whole day labeling your blogs, but it was good for me. I looked in your craft section and I made the garland that you have pictured but w/ red,white and blue for July 4th. See, all that work has paid off!

Ang. said...

Yes, Sally. And Puff the kitten. My 6 year old daughter has a big book of all of the stories. I bought it for her so she could learn to read. It worked! What memories those stories bring back for me. I would love some of that fabric! I am off to see if I can find it online.

Ang. said...

Oh! I meant to tell you that I got my wooden sock monkey nickel on Saturday. It was immediately swooped up by said 6 year old to put in her purse. :)

I so wish I loved to camp.

It is just the bugs, and no toilets, and dirt.

You never feel clean...ewwwww

and then the smoke from the fire. It always follows me.

Have some cranberry orange scones. I made some special.

We camped when I was a kid. Still can't look at an empty Folgers coffee can without giggling. However now I really really appreciate indoor plumbing so no more camping.
Thanks for posting the previous blog listings. It was a lot of work for you to do, but will be very handy to refer to.

I just linked over from a post you made at Like Merchant Ships...you commented about collecting orphaned creamers for flowers for guests and I just wanted to pop over and see who would have such a great idea!! Your blog is beautiful...now off to click on more links!

I'd meet you so fast at Huckleberry's! LOVE IT!!!

Steph said...

We're going camping the week after the 4th of July in the Smokies!

My sock monkey stuff came today! Now I just need my mom or my mom in law to help with put it together, lol.

I choose the tent!

Oh man....love Huckleberry Tent and Breakfast...and so close to me!

If you go, you'd better swing down to my little piece of Idaho to visit. I might even be so bold as to bake you a pie...huckleberry? Raspberry? pear crumble? Peach? Hmmm...that would take some thought.

Christine said...

I'll keep a tent open for you. When do you want to come? Summer preferably ;)

Take a basket from the porch and gather some salad from the garden. Or you can borrow one of my children's fishing poles and try for bass/catfish in the pond.

But keep an eye out for the mama moose. She just had her baby 2 days ago.

If you ever get to Idaho, make sure you look us up. Thanks for mentioning us in your blog.
