Adrienne is about mid-way complete with her second book, which is a follow up to God Grant Me the Serenity. Now, please remember...you can't judge a book by it's cover, nor the title. I initially thought the novel was more Christian based material (this judgement was solely based on the title). I'm only stating this due to the fact that we have some people in this world that are easily offended. I am only putting this out here for Adrienne because I think her book made for good reading and it's something that most women can relate to. Whether it be a personal experience or a close friend that experienced such. So, again if you are one that loves to read, then this book is one of my pics.
And yes, I am on her dad's list *thanks Mr. Fox* of those to contact as soon as the next book is released.

Once the saddle began to slide I tried to jump off and my foot was still stuck in the stirrup...I laughed all the way down. The lady in the orange shirt was like I have never seen anyone laugh so hard at themselves when they fall. Hey..I'm a Walton, what can I say. The horse was even looking at me like...look at this fool.
Then, what happens next...okay I like to ride but NOT gallop. My legs are so short, once I was on the horse my feet could not reach the stirrups, so has I rode my feet keep hitting the horse side, so he decided to gallop..gallop..run. Was I screaming...yup, she had to say something to him and he stopped and started back walking....ready..to..get..off! That is too high to be galloping, I though I was gone fall the hell off.. again! It was still fun though.
First, let me introduce one of my old old crafts (which is a remake I learned from someone like back in 1998...yea. And to think I still remember how to do it). Now some of the pictures are a little dark....like, because I turned the flash off..why..I dunno. Patrice, this is for you and I want to see your first one made (smile).
To start, you will need a box of facial tissue (your choice of color), 2 food sample cups, 2 cotton balls, glue stick, thin ribbon, scissors, and maybe a little patience. Be sure to wash your hands properly and be careful not to get any glue on your hands. Remember, these little booties will contain food for the baby shower.
Align your tissue on the diagonal and place one cup in the center
Glue ONLY the lower half of the cup. Do not place any glue on the upper portion of the cup. Hence the fact that food will be placed inside the top cup
Be sure to press the top cup down as far as you can get it to go.
Cut about a 10-12 inch length of ribbon. Wrap ribbon between the top and bottom lid of the cup and begin to tie (just like a shoe lace).
And now for a little FOOTBALL!!! YAY!!! JLHS played a game against Central Tuscaloosa on Thursday (this game did not count, official season begin Thursday 08/28/08). May I add, JL won 34-7! Central Tuscaloosa is the team that no one use to beat...how about that!!
And one last pic before we go home. Yup, I cut the hubby out...my folk get happy when I cut the camera on:)

Here we sew...I pick an apron for the hubby, self proclaimed grill master, this should be easy easy...right?
S5154...yup this is it. Oh, do I have the confidence of a advanced sewer..YES. Take a look at the material, it actually has a print on it (for all that don't know..I have a fear of prints). My husband is a hunter and I thought this would be great for him, he would absolutely love this apron.
What's wrong with this picture....can't figure it out? Take a look below for another clue.
Yes my e-friends..this material was cut out on the fold properly, but the print is UPSIDE DOWN!! Brilliant huh? Lucky for me I purchased too much material just for this type of booboo, so I have corrected this talking on the telephone mini-disaster.
On to other news...Guess who did not want to take pictures!! The un-shy one, the one who LOVES to take photos, NEVER misses a photo-opp. The child that knows more about my camera than I know..he set the timer to take pics of him and I don't know how to do that!!
Mr. Aaron did not want to be bothered at the dentist office because he wasn't sure if this ONE was going to hurt or not.
Leave me alone and let me just watch the cartoons before that lady come back....pleasssseee.
Okay, I see you gone keep on taking pics...here you go now leave me alone. After receiving his new package (toothbrush, paste, and floss) he was good for pictures...me..not so much.
Well, that's if it for me folks..happy blogging, type at you later
Have a wonderful weekend...get craft happy!!
