Do you know I actually look forward to Sat am's to see what beautiful picture you post and see your greeting! lol

Steffie B. said...

Good morning, twice! ;)

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Kate! How's the weather in the England this morning?

redmaryjanes said...

Morning Steffie,
What are you guys doing today?

A Special Family said...

It is hot and sunny! I am near the beach and can't wait to go tomorrow!! It's funny because on Saturday mornings I listen to my old radio station from home and forget I am in England until someone reminds me! lol

redmaryjanes said...

I would so love to go to England. I know that this is going to sound stupid, but have you seen the royal family?? Madonna?
I think the accents are fantastic. So, you are an American?

Stacy said...

Good Morning! I have already finished my first cup of tea. I was just about to go make another, but I thought I would check my e-mail quickly. I am so glad I did. :)

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Stacy!
How are you?

Steffie B. said...

What's going on? Live chats...what's up?

A Special Family said...

My family is in PA, but I grew up in Toronto (near Kathy and Joel and Mark and Michelle actually). Yes I have met the Royal Family (Diana, William, Harry, Queen, Queen mum, Fergie, Phillip) some several times, although that is not the experience of most Brits, most will never meet them in their lives. I was blessed and for a variety of reasons, personal and professional was able to.
Re celebrities, one thing that I really like living here is that they are very very normal people when here. They visit markets, walk the streets going to normal gyms and normal restaurants. I like that, there is a real 'wholesome' life here - organic food, farmers markets, organic cottons etc.

Steffie B. said...

Do I just hit refresh?

Stacy said...

I'm with Steffie. I'm not sure how this works.

Kate - I just e-mailed you. :) Good Morning - I guess it would be Good Afternoon to you.

redmaryjanes said...

Steffie,
I thought that we could do this like we did the baby shower. We all try to say hello every Sat. morning, so I thought we'd just grab our coffee and talk.
What do you think?

redmaryjanes said...

Kate,
Wow, that is cool. I wish that we had a more organic way of life here in the US. It's hard here to find food that isn't filled with pesticides. Everything is so processed, I think that's why we have so much cancer.

redmaryjanes said...

Everyone,
Try to just hit refresh and see if it will automatically update for you and show the new comments. We did this for Elizabeth's baby shower and it worked really well, but I'm not sure how everyone got their comments to update so fast.
Can one of you hit refresh and let me know if it works?

Stacy said...

It seems to work! :)

Stacy said...

I wonder if there is a program out there that would work for free live chats. We may have to look into that.

A Special Family said...

Yes Stacy, 5 hrs ahead of NY time!

Yup, I wouldn't trade my new organic life for anything. Really teaches you to say no to consumerism. I'll be bring my new way of life with my organic cotton diapers back with me when I return home!
I think you are right re cancer, I saw a horrible show about the rates in north america and the pesticides....very very scary!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Good Morning Everyone... Just wanted to say hello..
No matter what I am about to do on Sat.. work or play .. I have to check a few blogs to see what is going on..and of course fellow bloggers in China..
Kim

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Kim!
What are your plans for today?

redmaryjanes said...

Stacy,
How did you guys coordinate the Blogger Break, that looked wonderful.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I just stopped by Stef's to see her journey about Sophia and now we are getting ready to go tubing and water skiing..
Got to go.. Have a great day..
Kim

redmaryjanes said...

Nikki was talking a program where we could all see each other on video, but I forget what it was called, I think Skype. I don't know how many people you could see at the same time though.
I could do some research into seeing what type of a chat room we could find.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

Goodmorning Darlings!
I just rolled out of bed and finishing the first blessed cup of coffee.
Plans for today: inspired by LALA, we will go to the zoo!
Just Sterling and me though, Daddy is working like usual, but I cannot complain. This means I son't have to work!

redmaryjanes said...

Morning E,
I would like to get a trip in to the zoo this weekend too. I try to get there at least once a year.

redmaryjanes said...

E,
Did any more packages make it through customs?

Ms. Dragonfly said...

I got a sweet one from Nancy yesterday, will post it today. Probably after the zoo.
Guess what?
I got word that Nurse Snark story #3 just got published!
Sorry had to brag.
Anyway,
gotta run the bouncing poodle, wash the SOS pad I call hair, and then we will be off!
PS
how is your MIL doing?

redmaryjanes said...

Have a great day E!
My MIL is still struggling on. Thank you for asking.

redmaryjanes said...

Oh and E,
Congrats on being published AGAIN!!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

thanks RMJ.
I'll be thinking about you today.
~E

Stacy said...

Have a great day at the zoo Elizabeth! That sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday!

Stacy said...

That's awesome that you were published! Congratulations.

Dannye said...

morning all, just got up, late nite last nite, getting ready to go shopping for SP pressies, and to the PO to mail off a birthday pressie for Steffie's Sophia....

and then to enjoy my pool with my hubby and parents, but wanted to drop in and say hey!!

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Dannye,
That sounds like a great Saturday! Enjoy!

Sophie's Mom said...

Good morning everyone! I had no idea so much fun could be had on a Saturday morning. I really should be outside hanging laundry...

redmaryjanes said...

Sophie's Mom,
Go on out and hang a little laundry, and then come on back and check on us!
Good Morning!

Dannye said...

i'll check back with you guys later on!! thanks for the quick donut and coffee, hehe and of course the wonderful company!!

redmaryjanes said...

Stacy,
Are you still there?

Much Ado said...

Hi there all, only have a few minutes but I wanted to pop in and say hi to you all, all the way from Spain. Hope you're all having a great weekend! Great idea by the way Kim.

Jeter's Mama said...

just checking morning blogs, saw your message on my blog. can't stay... I have my niece and nephew here who stayed the night, plus my 3 children so I need to cook breakfast for all 5!
will answer the question you asked Stacy about the blogger break.
A lot of people have been wondering how we threw it together.
A handful of us were wanting to get together, so I offered up my house for the weekend. It began with (I believe) just 5 or 6 of us. Then one person would say, can I invite so and so... We decided to keep it off the blogs until the weekend came around because we had such a large group (originally around 26) and I just didn't have enough room.... So it began with around 6 of us who have already met before, then each of us invited 2 or 3 people that we have been wanting to meet, and that is how the group became so large. We decided to do it every year, and eventually our girls will be home, and hopefully they will all become fast friends.

Everyone enjoy your weekend!! Ours will be spent with lots of swimming, fishing at our lake, bon fire and s'mores, BBQ and playing with the dogs. This is my children's last weekend of summer vacation. School starts Thursday!!!!

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Oh fiddle buster. I'm at work and really shouldn't (can't) do a live chat. I might get er, well busted! I am being paid to work....

Gorgeous day here too!! Have fun ladies. I will check in from time to time to see what I'm missing out on.

Did Sophie's mom say hanging laundry?! Wow, that brings back memories that make me want to smile....

redmaryjanes said...

Jeter's Mama,
I think that your weekend get together was a great idea. You could just tell from everyone's posts how bonded you all are now.
Hats off to you for being able to host that large of a group successfully!
Have a great day, it sounds like your weekend is going to be fab!

Much Ado said...

wow, if you had gone public on the blogs beforehand the party would have reached it's thousands I reckon!!!

redmaryjanes said...

Rony,
Have a great day on the job girl! My hubs is working today too.

redmaryjanes said...

Jane,
Yeah, their weekend getaway was a huge success.

So tell me, how do you read all of those books? How are you guys doing? Are you moving?

Sophie's Mom said...

Doesn't EVERYONE hang laundry? LOL I love it. Out in the back yard... Dogs & Sophia playing on the sandpile... warm breeze blowing... fresh, Maine air... ahhh can't ya just smell it?

Blog's looking spiffy, Rony!

Much Ado said...

Books - I always read before I go to sleep at night, that and anywhere I go I bring a book with me and then read when I get a minute or two!

We moved back in February and are here to stay indefinitely, which is great....actually today we were finally getting around to hanging up all our pictures!

redmaryjanes said...

Sophie's Mom,
That sounds fantastic. I have always wanted to visit Maine. I have never been out to the East Coast. I hear that it is absolutely beautiful.

redmaryjanes said...

Jane,
I am so glad that you are keeping in touch. I used to read a lot, but no so much anymore. I have got to get back on designating time for it.

Mark and Rebecca said...

Good morning! Thanks for the invite to live chat. Sorry I missed it. I was chatting on the phone and putting off all the cleaning that I need to do this AM.

Hope you have a great day! Thanks for being such an inspiration to me through your blog! I love to check in with you!

Off to clean...unless I get distracted!

redmaryjanes said...

Rebecca,
The chat ends at noon, so you're ok. Have a great weekend!

Stacy said...

Checking back in for a second. I went and got the floors swept and mopped. Not a fun thing to do. Now I am off to Furbinate Bailey and Kaeliegh. If I can do two dogs at a time it isn't such a daunting task. I did Tucker and Sadie on Thursday.

After that and sweeping out the basement again my chores are finished for the day. I am off to get dog food and maybe puruse around Target. Ryan is diving today so I am alone and free. My last weekend before back to school. :(

I'll check back after the groom session.

Good Morning Melissa, Dannye, Rony and Laura!!

redmaryjanes said...

Good luck with the pooches and have a great day Stacy!

Much Ado said...

Back again but just quick to say thanks for hosting, this was fun! Have to go but enjoy the rest of your day.

redmaryjanes said...

You have a great day too Jane!

LaLa said...

Hey..sorry I missed the chat...we went to Titans training camp this morning to watch practice...I will be here next Sat. for sure : )

Nancy said...

I missed the live chats:( I had to drive 3 hours each way to get a friends daughter.
Maybe next time.

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

I'm still at work but just wanted to pop in and say "hi" to all of you!

Don't you love my new look? If you haven't seen it pop in. Beautiful!

Jewels of My Heart said...
