Went to see Kathie and 'Nette was there, Carol Bowling came and bought $10 jewelry and 'Nette bought $20 worth. I think I am going on to bed, nothing on TV and don't feel up to farming tonight. Let myself get too stressed today and I am worn out.

Went to Cracker Barrel with Gina and the kids, I said I didn't want a big deal this year and if anyone wanted to give me anything just put a few dollars to help me get to Duke. It was nice.

February 2

Cyndy Fuller came over and we were going to make jewelry but ending up swapping beads and talking and she gave me 68 pairs of earrings to sell and some beautiful family trees! She wanted to help me get the money to go to Duke, she had priced the earrings at $2 each so that is what I will sell them for, I thought that was so wonderful of her! We go way back to Southside where she sat in front of me, so we have been friends 40 years. We also went to church together at NS Baptist.
Noel had the baby last night! Matthew Colin, Nic and Jennifer are adopting him so they are very excited. I said I wish he had waited just a couple of hours to be born on the 3rd, LOL!

While I laid down with Ames Mama came and played with Charli then her Pop came home for lunch, when I got up she was watching Curious George on my computer and she had a sucker in her mouth. I got Ames some milk and grapes and me a cereal bar which she wanted too so I gave her that. I later see the evidence she left on my desk, LOL! She ate a total of 8! Thank goodness she only has 1 left so I put it in my pocketbook and do not have to deal with them any more! I spend a lot on healthier snacks like yogurt and fruit snacks. The suckers were from Papa Doug for her to share with church friends. She did share a few ;)

I put out I was taking orders for Family Tree pendants and now have over 10 to make! A good friend from when we went to Jr High is coming over and we are going to have a girl's night and she said she would help me, She is also selling some of her earrings cheap and donating the money to me, I think that is so sweet!
Charli had to make some jewelry since I was. She made a bracelet and I let her put ear wires on paper clips so she made 3 pairs of earrings. She was proud!
David Richitelli, a boy I went to school with, passed away this week end. I am not sure what he died from but he was in hospital 3 times, near death twice and had major surgery all in 2011. He just turned 51 in December.

I want to share with you a Super Place for recycled jewelry! I found her earrings months ago made from milk jugs and liked her shop at Etsy. Today I got an email so I could enter a contest. I tried several times to add this on my right side but have not had luck, yet but I hope you will stop by and see her pieces!

I opened my last bag of Candy Cane kisses yesterday, this year they were harder to find, Wal-Mart and Walgreens had them but many other places did not, I ended up having about 8 bags I think and the kids and I shared them. I will be so glad when Ames starts talking, he can say Mama, Dadddy, POP, hi, bye and calls Cora. NO MEME YET, LOL! He can repeat words sometimes and he can follow directions really well, like "pick up your paci'" and he answers yes and no by shaking his head and answers the right answer.
Gina came over and cleaned my floors good and while she was here Jeff fell and Les and Trey took him to ER where Mama stayed with him. He is bruised up pretty good but is OK.
A friend of our, Shirley Easler Starzman passed away, she was sitting watching TV with her husband and he looked over and she had foam coming out of her mouth. How sad!
