So, so sad..

I was just reading the news on yahoo and came across this article about a picture which was found in an attic.  These two little boys were slaves and the picture was taken around 1852 by a photographer that was famous at that time ( he took pics of Lincoln and also many freed slaves after they were set free).I looked at these little guys eyes and I started crying.  I can imagine that they had very little in the way of a nice childhood and my heart just broke.  They are so sweet looking yet soooo sad looking.

Summer Is Here!

Definitely here.  Yesterday it was 100 degrees and I was over in Bullhead City today and it must have been about 110. Sure felt like it. But had shopping to do so had no choice. The wind was coming off the Colorado River and it made it feel even hotter.

Have been looking around Ebay to see how sales are going and it seems very, very slow. Hardly any of my children's boutique clothing buddies are still around. All of a sudden our area just dried up. There are still a few new sellers but not much in the way of sales. They aren't getting much for their outfits which is a shame. Have been thinking about opening an Etsy store since Ebay's fees are outrageous now. They definitely need competition.

Been busy cleaning and doing maintenance on the sewing machines. Tomorrow will get to the serger. Been so busy this summer I haven't had much time to enjoy the new embroidery machine and I am really itching to get to that. And boy is that thread ever expensive. $6.00 for an 1100 yd. spool. At least it seems expensive to me. Got to buy that stuff on sale for sure.

Kat who is 13 yrs. old now has decided that when I turn the bedroom light off at night it is time to play. She finds all sorts of little things and brings them up in the bed and keeps pouncing on them. This goes on until about 1:30 am. Don't know what this stage is called but for me it is called "no sleep" until she winds down. Good thing I love her.

All for now so....

Till next time.

Blogger Blooper?

I can't figure out why when I log on my blog keeps going to the post from a year ago. Have tried and tried to fix this (figure it out) but have no clue. Seems like there is no point in posting if it is going to not show new posts.

Now today I log in and it is showing a different post. What's up with that?

So I will keep searching for the answer for a fix and hopefully get back to blogging. I do miss my friends.

Till then,
