Tuesday Tidbits

Look what I FINALLY RECEIVED today!! I won this from Pea over at Pea's Corner. She sent it out to me at the end of August and it is September 16th and I FINALLY receive it. We were both wondering where it had gone!! Guess it just takes a while for it to get from Canada all the way down here in Georgia!! It is really nice!! It is packed with fun things and of course all BLUE and blueberry items. Thanks so much PEA!! You are going to be happy that it has made its way to me. Maybe I should not sign up at your blog to win anything!! I was so amazed that you picked my number randomly!! Thanks again!!

Today has been another busy day just like yesterday!! Yesterday was kind of a crazy day with the kids after school, supper, homework, going to Cub Scouts, taking supper to my son in law and finally around 8:00 feeding my own hubby!!

Today started with CURVES and walking at the mall. I have finally decided that losing weight is NOT going to happen for me in this world. I am just going to wait for my "new body" when I get to heaven...BUT exercise does help my chronic pain in my hips and legs...so that is just my goal now with exercise.

We had the "Service Engine Soon" light pop up on our car's dash!! I went out to a place we trust and praying for nothing BAD to be wrong!! Funny thing is that the reason it came on was because our gas tank lid was not on tightly!! I guess these cars have that precaution on them now. They did not charge me but OH the money I spent on gasoline just driving there was enough!! I paid $4.06 for gas. I heard this morning that Savannah has one of the highest prices in the nation!! How fun that we have that great distinction!! I am so PROUD!!

We have these most disturbing bugs here!! I swear they are worse than last year. They are called love bugs here. All they do is fly around "hooked" to each other..die in 24 hours and make tons of babies at the same time. They are even in the house this year!! WHEW!! Garrett and Madison were saying yesterday that it is hard to play outside. They get all over them. They do not bite or anything just a nuisance!!

We made reservations yesterday for Northern Ga for an October weekend. WE will be close to two bloggers that I read regularly but I am not sure if we will have time to stop and see you both!! We are checking out the country and a couple of cities up there. Just thinkin'!!

VERY HOT again here today!! Our FALL takes the LONGEST time to get here!!

Thought for the day: "Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."

We have cool temps up here on the nawth end of GA. Loving that for sure! Hey, this wallpaper is pretty! I need to spruce up my blog when I can stay home long enough to do it:-)

Peggy said...

I don't think I will ever lose the weight either. I am trying to walk more and eat less. LOL Love your new look!

I love the new look of your blog. The header picture is just about the cutest picture I've ever seen.
We don't have a lot of bugs here in AZ like they have in some places. I think it is just too hot for them. They would just dry up and blow away.
The little dancing corn candy is just adorable. Your blog has put a smile on my face today.

Linda said...

I love your new banner!!! Is that little fellow in your front yard? I need to change my blog, I just can't find the right picture. Your's is adorable!!!

I know love bugs. We've been in FL this time of the year and they are everywhere! Like you said, they are just a nuisance!

It has felt like fall here the past 2 days. High's in the 70's without humidity. We still haven't had any rain and none in the forecast for the next 2 weeks.

Have a good evening.

Good evening Sandy, Your new fall header looks great...all of your blueberry items from Pea also look good..it did take a long time to reach your house.

The love buys are a pest... you can't enjoy being outside...Fred fixed my bike and I want to start riding it, but the bugs are too much!!! I need to go and buy myself a helmet..

Have a good night after such busy days .... hugs, Barb

Melli said...

LOL! I've never heard of your "Love bugs" -- but you just keep 'em down there! I don't need 'em! We had a time with biting flies down on the beach yesterday! Really took the fun OUT of being there! UGH!

You guys will have a grand time on your fall adventure! Sounds like it will be really nice... I know Susan would LOVE to go with you!

You are really keepin' busy with those grands, huh! Good! Keeps ya young! :)

Julie said...

That is why I like the seasons changing b/c we get rid of annoying bugs :)

Denise said...

Susie said...

Hi Sandy,
You are really decked out for fall, so cute! Glad you got your blueberry package from Pea. The snail mail does seem to move slowly these days.
I know you two will enjoy your getaway wherever you go!

Bridget said...

Ya know, I always wanted to visit Georgia (one of my pals live there) but not now! I never heard of a love bug until your post, so i was curious. I googled it, and OMGosh!!!!
I don't think i'll ever go there now!
I'm terrified of bugs as it is, and when i saw the pictures i screamed!

I'll pray for you!

PEA said...

Yes, I am indeed relieved that my package finally reached you:-) I've learned to be patient, though, when it comes to parcels between Canada and the USA, it always seems to take a few weeks. Seems the more we pay for postage, the slower the service is! lol

Glad to hear nothing was wrong with your car except for not having the gas tank lid on tight! lol Gas here is 1.39 a liter which makes it $5.56 a gallon...utterly ridiculous.

Never heard of love bugs but yuck, I'd be in a panic if they flew on me, I don't like any type of but. lol

We had frost yesterday morning and they're forecasting frost again tomorrow morning so looks like Autumn is here to stay! xoxo
