I am having a hard time lately coming up with things to blog about. I've noticed that this seems to be a problem with other bloggers too. Hopefully this blogger block will pass and I will get inspired soon. In the mean time I hope I don't bore you all too much. I had a fun weekend with my grandkids~ All three kids stayed and we did nothing but play! The weather over the weekend was perfect. The area had some storms on Sunday but we only had a little rain and then it was sunny the rest of the day. On Satureday the kids played outside all day with a little neighbor girl. We spent some time at the park and we took a couple of walks in the wagon. The end of a perfect day of playing was the ice cream man ringing his bell! On Sunday we took them all to what we call "the farm". It's land my husbands family owns about an hour out of town. The kids got to throw rocks in the creek, climb on the hay bails in the barn and feed the cows. Pretty cool stuff for city kids. They went home last night and I slept like a rock I was so pooped! But pooped in a good way. It may take me a week to revover but it was definitly worth it. ~ On a totally different subject. I saw something cool on the news this morning for those of us who love to shop online. It is a web site called Hoopla Doopla http://www.hoopladoopla.com. The site has links to hundreds of stores that you probably already shop at. When you link to the store from this site you earn cash back on your purchases. The site gets a commission for linking you to the store and splits the commission with you the shopper. The site is free and the money you earn can be deposited directly into your PayPal account or they will send you a check in the mail. Now I just heard about this site so I haven't actually used it to link to a store to make a purchase yet but it sounds like a really cool idea. It does have a lot of stores that I regularly shop at so I'm gonna give it a try. As long as it doesn't cost me money and I will be buying there anyway. As much as I spend at JoAnn's this could be a really good thing! Hope you all have a wonderful week. Peggy

I have decided when I am not moved by the blogging fairy I will not post! This is so liberating to me! And, I haven't had blogger block at all since I started doing that.

The farm sounds very fun. My kids love when we go to our favorite pumpkin farm each year and they get to play in the hay bales in the barn, see the baby pigs and pet the big old friendly red cow!! Even my (now teenage) girls become like little kids again when we go there.
Thanks for sharing this story!

Sometimes all it takes is a pretty picture to make me happy. Keep blogging about the simple things that make you happy . . . they will make us happy too.
