There's a Periodic Table of Elements Here, Too!

My good friend the Science Geek has posted a link to a really nice visual Periodic Table of Elements. 

Here's another fun (for the geeky) version - a musical Periodic Table of Elements.  Back ca. 1985, we had a friend who could play and sing this song.  The first time I heard it, I could hardly believe it.  I'm still pretty amazed at simply how much singing ability one must have to conquer these tongue twisters, much less to write the song in the first place.

Fun Craft Blog

I just loved the post name, "A Dollar Barn Christmas." Her whole blog is full of fun inexpensive craft inspiration.

The 17th Project

No pictures! 

Peg and I  joked a few weeks back about the fact that I start 14 projects and have them all going on at the same time.  She on the other hand, starts one or maybe 2 projects, completes them, puts away her project materials, and turns back to greet you from the door of her clean and beautiful home.  Sigh. 

Just an aside - I don't usually use friends' and families' names on my blogs, but since her name already appeared on Science Geek's blog, and she keeps a pretty low profile on the internet, I take the liberty.

I just picked the number 14 out of the air, but then I started counting up, and sure enough, there were 14 projects in some stage of workin' on it.

Don't believe me?  Projects 1-3 involve closets; Projects 4-6 involve fabric and quilt batting;  Projects 7-9 involve more fabric and new patterns; Project 10 involves making a beautiful $3 skirt fit my skinny little daughter, Projects 11-12 involve American Girl dolls and fabric;  Projects 13-14 involve Modge Podge and beautiful paper.

Since then, each time we mention something, we pipe up - "Project 15!"  "Project 16!"  (Both those involve yarn)

Well, Monday during Mini-co-op Science she showed me - Project 17.  Nope, can't tell you what they are; can't show you what they are. No pictures, because she is giving some to friends at Christmastime.  Now I am, too - Project 17 was just too cute, simple, and fun - I had to make a few!  I left Peg saying, "I shouldn't have told you."  (I'm sure she is just teasing.)  So I'll be making some for family and friends, but NONE for mutual friends : )

No pictures! 

OK, maybe just one picture:

A Good Weekend

A good weekend for a Georgia Bulldog ends with a whole load of just red and black clothes.

Homecoming was great!  The weather was wonderful, time spent with friends and family was precious,the picnic was yummy, the Redcoats played with spirit, the Bulldogs won -and I really like my new plaid visor - and my favorite Bulldog fan.

New resident on the farm

Someone new has taken up residence on my parents' farm in Georgia.  He just showed up one day, and has been content to stay.  They have searched for his people, but so far no one has come forward.

He feels right at home with the cows.


If you are gentle and move slowly, you may be able to scratch him on the noggin.

 Mama gives him an apple a day.

 I think he knows a good thing when he sees it.

Last U.S. game for these jerseys...

...they'll be finding new children in Haiti!

Starting the game with prayer


Let's go Sonics!
 "Good game!"  "Good game!"

 Getting ready to pass these jerseys on. (Someone has a few loads of laundry to do -  8 soccer teams :)

One of our Upwards Sports coaches is going to Haiti in December with Harvest International to help with sports ministry for children there.  He asked that we bring in any sports jerseys that want to go to  yougsters in Haiti.  Our children responded!  Many children brought jerseys from several sports.  We are excited to pass on the blessings!
