WOYWW and Wednesday musings...

OMG!  How fast an a week fly by?  Seems like it was just Wednesday yesterday!  I have not got much done this week…health has been an issue with a lot of pain preventing me from getting things done I want to do!

My desk today….yes I know!  It is even worse then it was last week!  I was looking for some paint and pencils…I found them!  Join in the fun and check out other desks at WOYWW.  This week Lunch Lady Jan is hosting one last WOYWW on her blog because Julia will be back next week!
 Couple double page layouts I have been working on from the Penelope Scrapbook kit from Close to My Heart.  My daughter sells CTMH and has been getting kits for me to do since my mojo is gone.  Keeps me going.

I love these kits they have such bright colors and beautiful patterns!  Everything is in the package so all I have to do is pull it out of the stash and follow the directions.  I need to print out the photos and stick them down and these pages will be done!  If you enlarge you can see I have the print size and position written down on the page!  
The corn last week was so tall and green and here it is in less then a week after me picking all the corn the stalks withered and turned brown…We had a storm come through and the lighting was perfect to make the stalks shine!
Chuck picked okra and tomatoes again this morning.  I love okra in soups and stews but especially fried with a corn meal coating.  Last Saturday I canned 8 pints of okra, tomatoes, and onions to have this winter when the weather is cold and a good hearty pot of soup is called for!

Thought that I would add a couple pictures of the bunny rabbit that has been hanging around in my back yard!  He is such a sweetie and will come within a few feet and sit and watch what I am doing.  And no Chuck he will not end up in the stew pot!

I will leave you with one last photo of my pinup girl Ghost.  She is the youngest of our three cats and came to us just about 2 years ago.  I am allowed to pet her and love on her now and she will actually come up demanding attention!  
Ghost 2 years old



  1. The CTMH kits are fantastic! Pretty. And I'm always one to lose mojo..glad you have rekindled yours. Love that you get fresh corn. One of my gardening goals.

  2. Hi Vickie, first off, I love Ghost and your bunny! Love the state you got into looking for something. I thought I was the only one who did that! I always make more mess trying to find something! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #6 xxx

  3. Ooooh... Where do you LIVE Girl??I am in Creston, British Columbia Canada and even with our summer being as early as anyone can ever remember this year, the tomatoes plants have just started flowering last week! Grin. What a nice blog post this was to read today, please pop on over to mine to see a photo or two of my garden (and one VERY MESSY creative space!) Scrapbooking Artist Lynne Mizera WOYWW #42

  4. Scrapbooking pages look great. Hoping you feel better soon. Your garden looks great. I found a bunny in mine too - sleeping in my wildflower garden. I think we scared one another! I've seen him/her sleeping in the same place.

    Have a great week

  5. I know it's usually our own fault that we can't find things but it can get you very frustrated at times so pleased to hear you managed to find what you were looking for. Nice photos too. Happy crafty woyww, Angela x 23

  6. Beautiful veggies. They look so great in the jars! It's nice to use kits that are basically done for you especially when your mojo is on a hiatus. I use CTMH kits a lot too. Dorlene #40

  7. Yummy now I am hungry for okra and 'maters I came home from B&B hungry! Your garden looks so productive..I will have to pick your brain because I am going to do one next year for sure!I really miss your classes. I need to get back to doing paper crafts again.

  8. A real blonde pin up girl to rival Marilyn and all the others. She is a beauty and I love the pose.
    Great pages and what a fabulous desk you have, am sure you can tidy it in a tick.
    Great harvesting too.
    Hugs, Neet 10 xx

  9. Wow, I love those bright papers you've been using - so lovely to see fresh colours instead of grunge! And your veg plot looks fantastic, you've done so well...ours is a little behind because of the weird weather this year but I am picking lots of beans and cucumbers now :-)
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  10. Hi Vickie,
    My fibro and lupus has been flaring up big time. I think it's the heat and starting a new job. Talk about stress!

    Your garden is amazing. I love fried okra. A friend of mine talked me into trying pickled okra a few years ago and I also love that. I think I'd like your canned okra and tomatoes too. Like you said, perfect for stew - minus the rabbit!

    Hope you get to feeling better.


  11. Hi Vickie, you mentioned on my blog re: hollyhock seeds, but didn't leave an email address. You can send me your address at doorknocker3(at)yahoo(dot)com. :)

    Happy (belated) WOYWW


  13. You've had a great harvest from your lovely garden. Your rabbit visitor is a sweetie, as well as your kitty cat. Blessings!

  14. Hi Vickie, By heck you have a lot on your desk.

    Lovely to have your own grown produce. Hope the rabbit doesn't eat too much of it:)

    What a lovely cat.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  15. Your garden items look scrumptious, how smart of you to can. donna #16

  16. Hello Vickie. Your garden is so beautiful and congrats on getting some canning done. That is something I haven't done in years and am missing the home made yummies I use to make. Great job on the layouts and I have never really done a kit but have always wanted to. Should take the time to order some but working on my stash to use some up first. The pictures of the rabbit and your cat ghost made me smile thanks for sharing them. Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Hugs~Anne L#1

  17. Great post - I love making jams and chutney.

  18. Great pages. I love Ghost. She's adorable!!!
    Have a great day.
