Birmingham AL

Getting up at 3am, leaving for the airport at 4:45am. It takes about 50 minutes to get there. Plane leaves at 6:45am. Arrive Bham at 11:30, class starts at noon. It is a training class for our new computer software. Hope I can stay awake. There are 3 of us going. We get home Friday night at 9:48pm. The "guy" in the group rented a Yaris. Does he have any idea how big my suitcase is? Okay it isn't huge, but it won't fit in a Yaris with 2 other bags and 3 people.

There was a second part to the last challenge of Survivor on Tallyscrapper this week. It was to be posted at random with no announcement. I looked for it all weekend and have gotten online today a million times to see if it was there. I am so sad. I can't do it now. I will be in Bham with no scrappy supplies the rest of the week. I am really bummed out. I like to finish what I start.:(

Blackberry Cobbler

I didn't eat all the blackberries. Made the crust with flour, I can't believe its not Butter Light, Skim milk and Splenda. Put Splenda in the blackberries and yummy. I don't measure anything so can't tell you how much of each. Use your own judgement. Of course, DH had to eat his with ice cream but he doesn't have a weight problem.

Farmer's Market

Chef PJ at the Farmer's Market buying fresh vegetables for the restaurant.

Jim and I met PJ and his other Chef friends at the grand opening of the Pearl Farmer's Market. It is located behind the old Pearl Brewery. (Side note: I came to San Antonio for a National Jaycee convention in 1981, before PJ was even thought of and we had an event at the Pearl Brewery.) Anyway, it was packed. People eveywhere. We bought Cinnamon pecans, Peach and Pepper Habanero sauce, Pecan peach butter with rum, bread and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. We even got sweet strawberries from Poteet TX. Tomorrow we will be eating fresh green beans, corn and cabbage. Maybe blackberry cobbler for dessert, if I have any left. I can't stop eating them.
After that, Jim and I went to Sam's and bought my Mother's Day present. A 22' hdtv with a built in dvd player for my Scraproom! I am excited.

Headed to the Coast

Now, that my Mother is gone home I can relax at the Coast for MY Mother's Day. We are going to leave our travel trailer there, in hopes of going more often. We think if we don't have to set it up and break it down eveytime, we can just get in the car and go when we want to. I am really hoping it works out that way.

My Mom is home safely. I am glad but feel a little guilty about that. I got a message tonight and came home and scrapped. the ultimate relaxation! I don't think my Mom realized that if I could have scrapped for 30 minutes everyday after work, I would have been much easier to live with. I did the Art Journal prompt for "I" which is Imagine, tonight and all I could think of is imagine life without scrapping. I must be addicted.
