In Response to Re: DOING KOOL-AID EGG DYE : Hi Vicki,so sorry I didn't see your post until now.I have played scrabble a long time ago.However I'm not too into games or cards.I like to sew,cook and bake.I do can with my sons help and I love to do crafts.You already know I like Indians and antiques.I make my own ricotta cheese and sauerkraut and more recently I made some wine not sure how it turned out yet I have to let it set and age for a year.I love Lifetime movies.My favorite thing to do was take care of my hubby and kids.I just loved being a wife and mommy.I made a dozen eggs and they turned out very nice.this is such a great idea and a lot less $ too then buying dye.My mom said when she a girl they used onion peels and beets and anything that stained to color eggs.My dogs have slept with me since the day I brought them home both were 8 weeks old.I can't sit in the recliner without a lap full of dogs lol.I didn't know how to use a computer until 3 Years ago my brother gave me this lap top because I don't get to go out too often he thought this would be good for me.I actually found both dogs on the internet.I have a cell phone but only out of necessity.I hate technology,I think this is the cause of lost jobs more so than the economy.You can't call anywhere without a computer answering the phone.I don't have grand childen but I do have a grand dog lol..

Gale-I loved being a mommy too and would've loved being a wife if I had married a good guy. I'm pretty much of a homebody. I like doing crafts too with painting things being my favorite. Sometimes the walls end up being my canvas and I paint every few years. I think my worst mistake on that was painting my bedroom walls a soft pink. I never got around to making all my "blue room" things switched over to pink so now I have pink and blue and my daughter says I'm "such a girl!" She's a bit of a tomboy.
I only learned a computer 3 years ago too. I learned to type because I wanted to talk to you ladies. It's funny now because I feel better and more at home typing than writing and I really enjoy just writing. I "took like a duck to water" when I was taught to write! Typing also makes the book writing go faster! As you can imagine!
I don't really play games so much either except for Scrabble.
Yes, I knew about staining the eggs with things other than dye but haven't done it yet. I like the bright colors so much!
You said that Easter was different this year and I agree that it must have really been. You must miss him terribly. I don't have any family besides my daughter and I would miss her so much that I wouldn't know how to go on. I think of you...
Your own cheese and sauerkraut and wine? You are a busy lady! I haven't been in the kitchen much but I realized that it is time to make something yesterday. Have to go shopping first! My daughter thinks that I would forget to feed myself if it wasn't for her. I think that I need to forget feeding myself more often! I'm impressed with your cheese and 'kraut!
I agree that the loss of jobs has been in part because of all the technology. My daughter has found herself without any clients (she's a caregiver) for the first time and she can't find anything out there. Not a gas station or anything.
