Concluding Sea Swept

Hi all,

I went away at the spur of the moment this weekend. I thought that my friend's internet connection up at her lake house would be strong enough to make my post, but alas, that did not work out. so I am late posting again this week....so sorry!

I drove 3.5 hours, about 185 miles to her house up in Wilmar, MN. We cleared out her garden and picked several buckets of tomatoes. We were planning on making 5 recipes but ended up canning three recipes and had fresh tomato BLTs, Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwiches. YUM!

We made salsa and jalapeno Christmas jelly and then a couple jars of Italian Stewed Tomatoes. Proved to be a very productive weekend. I made it home late last night, just in time to have a few hours before going in to work this morning. I had to basically unplug all weekend. I missed my Internet, LOL!

So, here is the last week and section of Sea Swept... Next Sunday I will post the first part of Autumn's Sky.

So this is next week's Freebie:

More Beauty for your Sundays - Sea Swept

Well this ended up being a harder week than I thought that it would be. My Birthday was an amazing day on Monday the 16th, I had a surprise invitation to lunch with my cousin. And then out of the blue I got together with my Dad for supper (It had not previously been planned either.) Then the week continued with job interviews and lots of running around.

I worked longer days than usual because I had taken off for My Birthday on Monday. A ten hour day on your feet is a long day. LOL!

Well the poll finished with Autumn skies in the lead to be the next freebie kit. I'll try to have larger parts so the kit finishes a bit quicker, say, in about a month instead of two months.

Well I'm going to finish this post and then schedule it to post tonight... I have house cleaning to do as I have a housing inspection on Tuesday.

Belated Birthday - Sea Swept

Well, I had a blast of a time traveling for my Birthday. Hee-hee.

I drove 80 some miles to visit my son last Saturday, it really made my day!!!

Then, I drove the next day 110 miles down into Iowa to meet an old friend and see a movie and have dinner. I also popped into the McDonald's down there and visited with my friend and co-worker from McDonald's. She moved down there. So I had to say "hi".

BTW, Immortal Instruments- City of Bones is an awesome movie. Just the kind I like in Sci-Fi/ fantasy! Loved it!

Another year older... sigh.

Here is Week 5 sorry that it is late.

Sea Swept Freebie: Week Three

I acquired some huge zucchinis this week. I plan to bake a batch of zucchini snack break to take in to work. Yum! I am going to Google a recipe for this as I can not find my friend Betty's yummy yummy recipe. If it turns out tasting good then I will scrap it up and add it to the recipe pile!

I plan on having some recipe cards published into some 4x6 or 5x7 albums someday soon. I had been printing them out on my printer but I seem to be going through the ink that way fast! LOL. I ended up giving my album to my cousin Marsha when she was visiting. So now I have to peek at my tablet for my good "keeper" recipes! But that's alright, cause I love my tablet too!

On another note... The job hunt continues. I recently graduated in I.T. (computer work) and Business Admin. I have A.A. degrees in the fields. I am so excited to be done! But... Now they are teaching C# and writing apps. So cool. I can study the new course material for free, just a perk of doing the Tech route at Minnesota School of Business (Globe College). I only had to pay for the book, Woot!

I have made a cute little windows app to play Rock, Paper, Scissors so far. I had a blast figuring it out!!! Love writing code! It does not like me so well as I get stuck a lot on a bug fix or a logical error right at bedtime and then can't sleep, but I am trying to try to journal it so I can maybe work through it. Pandora streamed onto my bedroom TV seems to help though :) I have a cool NetGear NeoTV box player. Love the Pandora button directly on the remote! Coolness!

I also found a new tech gadget "Push 2 TV" adapter that sends your laptop monitor feed to an HDTV wirelessly. Only 20 something $$s so I am going to have that on my Birthday wishlist for this fall! Hee-hee.

I have the Week Three freebie for you below. It should stretch over 8 weeks total. :) That last week all the parts will still be available but I will take the links down one week after a kit finishes so make sure to come back!
