Getting Busy With Other Stuff:

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews

Hello, My Friends,

How are you?  I hope that you are doing well, and have a busy and fun Halloween Weekend planned.  We usually don't do anything for Halloween, though Cary always has great costume ideas, just in case.   We usually don't get any trick-or-treaters  except for perhaps 3-5 great nieces and nephews if they happen to be in the neighborhood.    I buy a bowl of candy just in case, and buy the kind that we like.  No getting stuck with cheap suckers for us!

I am trying to force myself into productivity, and yesterday that did work for me.  I made 27 cookie-mixes-in-a-jar.  Yay, it is a good start.  I am trying to get a bunch of stuff ready for a craft sale in the first week of December.  

I received my laminator in the mail from my girls, and am so excited.  I have several projects in mind and will post them as I complete them.  

I may need to slow down on some of my posting until I get this new "job" incorporated into my schedule.  I feel so bad that I haven't visited all of you who have visited and commented here over the past week.  I'll be by soon to see your great work.

I guess that is most of what is up around here ... just been busy and am trying to make myself busier.

I do have a question for you though.  We no longer have a home phone, and I need a phone number for my gift business.  Do any of you use Magic Jack or Vonage or something else?  It has been suggested that I get a prepaid cell phone, since I wouldn't be using very many minutes.  I could use our work as a message phone, but I'm afraid that would throw folks off.  Any other ideas or solutions for me, you guys?

Thank you for your help!

Kathy M.

Well, that was real nice, Blogger.  Thank you for erasing the majority of my Chicken Enchilada post. Oh, that is so frustrating, to get up early and work on a post for an hour, publish it and then most of it disappears.  I give.

Oh, man. I'm sorry about blogger erasing your post. That is so frustrating. I'm impressed with your cookie in a jar mixes. I think I've accomplished a lot if I just get the laundry done. (Which is what I should be doing right now, by the way.)

Sorry about losing your post. I HATE when that happens. Grr....

You will be forever my Energizer Bunny. How do you do it??

Blogger definitely has trick on its mind instead of treat. Sorry about that.
I am stuck with a land line since I have no cell service here. I have to drive 4 miles to make a cell call so my cell phone is prepaid and used only for emergencies on the road. My sister used Magic Jack briefly, did not like it. Good luck.
