As of 4:30 PM, Central, I am off work until Monday!

My friend Bonnie works at the front desk in the office and told me today that when I’m gone she is asked over and over about my whereabouts.   She usually posts a sign on my chair stating “Sonia Is Out”, but this evidently doesn’t get the message across.  Another lady in the office agreed with Bonnie and said I need to roll my chair to my cubicle entrance, facing out, to make sure people see the sign. Her cubicle is across from mine, so she gets hit with all the traffic too.

So today Bonnie made a special sign and gave it to me to pin to my chair.  Not sure what she is trying to say with it, but I thought it was hilarious and gladly pinned it to my chair.

I don’t really have any major plans except for RELAX.  🙂  I’ll eat an ice cream sandwich to that!


Since I have been going through a tiny mental block of late… thought I would add a portion to my post for creative writing.  I will be using a book I received from my friend Carla.  It is full of writing prompts.  Not sure how crazy or silly it will get but that’s part of the fun.
My prompt this evening:  “Put it down or I’ll scream.” 
As she walked into the kitchen, she saw him pull the box from the freezer.  Was he thinking of eating the last ice cream sandwich?   No way – he wouldn’t dare.

Time slowed down as she watched him reach into the box and pull out the last one.   Tossing the box into the trash, he smiled at her.
“Oh, hi babe” he said.
“Give me the sandwich.” she replied, her face showing no signs of amusement.
“What?” he said
Her eyebrows rose as she responded, “I asked you to give me the ice cream sandwich.” 
Laughing he shook his head.  “You crack me up, with your subtle jokes.”
“Put it down or I’ll scream.”  She was shaking. 
He looked at her confused.  What is wrong with her, he wondered.   “Are you okay babe?”
She walked up to him and snatched the ice cream sandwich out of his hand.  She opened it up, took a bite out of it, smiled and turned around and walked away, humming quietly to herself.
“Wow”, he thought as he watched her walk down the hall.  He reached for the phone and dialed the psychiatrist.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
