Nothing New In Our Lives

It seems like lately I have absolutely nothing to blog about for the blogging world. I wouldn't want to bore you with my everyday life. Well too bad, that is what you are getting today. Nothing great is going on. Jon is still working full time and doing full time school at night. We basically never see each other except for the weekends. Then we have tons of house work and yard work to do when we both have time and no work for once. School for me is great. The 2nd graders are starting to go crazy with Halloween around the corner. They keep on wanting me to tell them what I am being, but no one knows the secret! I will post pictures of the secret revealed on the 31st. Let's just say my 7 and 8 year olds will LOVE it!! Our new house is still great. If feels like no matter what I do or buy it still seems large and bare. But I guess thats what happens when you move into something larger than a rental you are use to. My parents just got down here to Arizona for the winter and it is so wonderful to have them close. My sister and I have taken full advantage of it. From my mom making me dinner cause Jon goes to school at night, having more friends to go hang out with, or to have another shopping partner are always bonuses of having family near. So to wrap things up, life is great down in the AZ. The weather is starting to cool down to the 80's and it feels perfect. We are still happy as can be and still so much in love. So for now goodbye from the Ellsworths!!

Power Ranch Community Garage Sale on Saturday

For those of you who live in Arizona, I just wanted to advertise our community Garage Sale. We registered and noticed tons of people doing it so I wanted to let you all know! Some of you are great bargain hunters and love garage sales and some others like me never find anything. But hey we are selling a few things like a 3 piece bedroom set. It is the off white logs and very cute!! We couldn't fit all pieces in our spare bedroom and so we need to get rid of it and find something else. I am also selling one of my favorite things, my off white wood tv stand from our old place in Mesa. Again, if just didn't fit our new place. All the other things for sale are odds and ends. Anyway just wanted to let ya'll know!! Power Ranch is located between Higley and Power and Pecos and Queen Creek.

A Day As Betty Homemaker

So for those of you who know me well enough you know I do not sew. I have an experience and wonderful grandmother who was an expert sewer and her daughters never took on that trait from her. Hence the reason I never received that talent from my mother!! However, I am good at crafty projects but sewing nearly gives me ulcers.

Today, though I decided to give it a try. My friend Colleen came over and we started making panel curtains. After about 2 hours of just cutting the fabric and asking myself why am I making these when by now I could've bought and put them up in this time. We finally started phase one of sewing and I realized that I really do make myself sick when I sit by a sewing machine. It must have been the 7th grade Home Ec class that did this to me. I failed sewing!! I never got less than a B ever and yes I got an F in sewing!! But I made it through the sewing of 4 panel curtains without messing up too bad!! It wasn't as awful as I thought it would be either. I actually kinda enjoyed it after I got use to it. We will see the next time I get together with Colleen to finish these up. She was a trooper with me today. So thank you Colleen for putting up with my nearly caused ulcer from sewing. But for those of you who care, my curtains are actually going to be so cute!! I may go crazy and make more. I will get pictures up when I finish. Wish me luck!!
