There's a new game in town!

Ok, it is not new, but defintiely new to me and I have been totally sucked in. It is a time robber and I have corrupted my daughter and one of my grandsons with it! Woe is me! I should have known better when the title was comprised of four letter words! It's called FARM TOWN. I'm sure fond memories of growing up on a farm has nothing to do with this. It's free and it is a sickness...addiction if you will! There are thirty four levels and I am on level 19. My farm is starting to look pretty good although I have to sleep in the hay loft since I can not afford a house yet! The one I want is only $300,000. Yikes! I even dream about this game in my sleep. I think I better never gamble. I'm obviously not cut out for gaming of any kind! LOL!

It has been awhile since I blogged, not for playing Farm Town, mind you...just seemed that all of a sudden I went still. Roscoe passed away, my best buddy at work retired and I'm speechless.

And nothing profound has really occurred to me. Not that I ever blogged anything profound to begin with.

Tomorrow both of my kids and their families, Jim and John, Miff and I are all gathering at mom's to play cards, weed, move furniture, share BLT's and homemade ice cream.....I am sooo looking forward to this! And I am already worn out thinking about it! But what fun!
Even stamping has kind of taken a back seat for awhile. So today's card is Jeanne's retirement card which I failed to get to her the day of her party. It was made and ready to go, but I forgot to take it with me in all the hub-bub. The card was made with a multi colored stamp pad being brayered to the white cardstock. Then after the ink dried, we brushed gesso onto the inked cardstock. The stamped images are from where else? Stampin Up. It's the Asian Artistry stamp set which is a level two hostess set this year. I just love it.
Well enoy your Labor Day weekend to the fullest. I cherish these memories we make when we get together more now than I ever did! God Bless You!
