Did you know?

That koalas aren't bears? That koalas can fall asleep while eating? That koalas never have to leave their tree?
Well, we know these things because Julia did her book report/diorama on koalas this weekend.
koala diorama
I know that diorama making wasn't on my weekend list but I figured it would be a good idea to get it done because the week is likely to get crazy. I LOVE dioramas! We had so much fun making this together.
koala diorama
Julia came up with most of the ideas and I worked the hot glue and added tiny details. We were going to make the koalas out of pom pons but I then I thought felt would be easier.

Pretty cute, huh?
My sister sent me a gift card for JoAnn Fabrics (thanks Deb!) so that we can make her daughter a nursing school graduation quilt. Here are some:
Carolyn's future quilt
Some buttons: buttons
I bought the doctor pack for that red cross button.
Look at this cute one, I have no plans for it but I needed it: cute fabric!
This was the deal of the week.
remnant bin therapy
I did ok in the remnant bin but I found this fiskars cutting mat set on clearance for $35 and then it was 50% off that. $17 for the mat, ruler, scissor and rotary cutter! woohoo!
Deere John is almost by Thanksgiving, I hope.
I need to go cut up berries. Why, you ask? It's Golden Waffle Day at work today. I work for a small advertising agency and the boss said that Monday is golden waffle day and asked if I would pick up the toppings. How could I refuse? Did you ever wonder why I NEVER complain about my job?

t have all day to work out (I sure don. The final thing anybody would want is for their grip to fail and drop a weight on themselves or need to cut a
workout brief simply because the grip strength is no longer present.

Perform this workout mostly to build wider, larger, broader shoulder muscles.

An acupuncturist should warn the patient that this could happen and instruct them to breathe deeply into the area for
a few minutes until the discomfort dissipates. So you won't have to stumble around in the middle of the night to turn up or down the heater. 26 kilowatts and hour, far less than the average space heater.

A lot of people have dumbbells scattered throughout their fitness
rooms and sometimes times have got to locate the correct amount of
weight before they're able to begin with their do exercises routine. By doing this I can work out one body part at a time with a hundred percent effort and still fully recover to work out my major muscle groups the next week. There are also light models made for people that can't lift as much

It can hurt at first though, so prepare your face by running an
ice cube over the brow line or other part of the face
that will be plucked free of unwanted hair. I have
sideburns and I even them out quite nicely with the regular razor that I use (which is not a Fusion

Purchase from local manufacturers if possible; if not,
purchase direct from the manufacturer to ensure the most freshness - all-natural beauty products don't contain chemical preservatives, so their shelf-life may be shorter than their conventional chemical-filled counterparts. Why bother going to the department store when everything you need is right in your kitchen. You can also run the product that you are interested in with your family doctor or dermatologist.

Battery-operated air compressors are pretty nifty gadgets.
With the reservoir filled, plug the spray gun into either an electrical outlet
or an air compressor. AFCThe purpose of this device is to generate electrical power
by using the lifting power of air rising in water.
