Computer on the blionk and GAME ON!

Well my computer is on the blink and not behaving right now so I don't have a freebie yet for you. I have been away since friday and just got home and I tell you... I am tired. Here is why... My son Mike is in soccer and the team went to districts last week and won so we are now at the Summer State Tournament. I have been driving for hours every day and here we go...


Fri. > set off for the Twin Cities for game one, tied 1-1 (4 pts) drove home late.

Sat. > up at 4 am and set off back up and had game two at 9am won 7-0 total (14 points)
>11am set off for another 4 hour drive to central Minn., Willmar, MN. My friend there has an awesome lake home. 6 PM I was out on the lake and tubing behind the speed boat. woohoo! Mike had a blast. stayed up late around the campfire.

Sun. > caught fish and had fresh catch for lunch yum. drove 3 hrs south to Sleepy Eye, MN dragged out the air mattress yet again. Friend there took pity on us and let us spend the night. Drove by the Laura Ingalls historial thingy. Too bad I was so tired and the camera was packed.

Mon. Both cells are dead and out of range of our phone co. and won't charge for some reason. hmmmm maybe it was Mike's going through the washer. hee hee. drove 3 hrs home and had 25min before catching the game bus back up to the National Sports Center in Blaine. Tied the undefeated not scored on team 1-1 phew! We are now sitting neck to neck where there is a possibility for any of us and the top 3 teams to continue to the campionship on Friday.

So it is still game on and anybody's game. Final game on Wed. for Mike. what a tension packed game tonight.Well, I thought I would be up tonight but I am wiped and that glass of vino did it's magic, so nite luvs!

7-7 A Few Quick pages made from the DSo July color Challenge

Well, another night out at the soccer fields. It has been summer weather. A muggy morning with and afternoon shower and then it cooled off quiet a bit. Compared to the heat it almost felt chilly. The sky was really strange though. I never saw much for the lightning but the thunder was almost a continuous thing grumbling on and no with hardly any breaks at all. I had to step outside to check the sky several times it was so different. LOL

And another freebie... I had to go into my kit to play and see what I could make with it and now I have these quick pages for you.

7-3 CU freebie, My Recipe featured on TV WOOT!

Well what a day! I opened up my e-mail to quite a surprise...





:D I week ago I sent in an original recipe to a local TV station. They use viewer recipies on Wednesdays for the cooking segment.



My recipe was chosen to be on today. WOOT!



I love to combine my digital scrapbooking and my love of food so I sent a scrapped recipe card in and my salad was made on TV this afternoon. Woo Hoo!



They made it a funny story as I forgot about a pot luck picnic one time and threw this together from what I had in the fridge and the pantry and by accident came up with this pasta salad. It has a bunch of cucumbers in it and a refreshing taste so I named it Refreshing Salad. It is funny because of the circumstances! ROFL

And I won a $50 gift certificate to a home delivery grocery store too and free delivery.


The salad has ingredients in it that are available here in the States. I wish that everyone could try it.





WATCH THE VIDEO ;)
