I hope you’ve noticed that I’m attempting to sell some of the fabric bags that I’ve created. I have a few for sale in my right sidebar.
In my attempt to sell my creations, I have found another Online Auction Site I may have to try. The listings include everything from antiques to movies and possibly in the near future, my fabric bags!
What do you think? Are auction sites appealing to you? Do you use them? Are you a buyer or a seller?

I am certainly not a very good meal planner. Some days are better than others, but there are many days when I’m scrambling in the afternoon to try to decide what I feel like cooking AND what I have the ingredients to make. This planning problem spills over into my grocery shopping. I have a tendency to purchase the same ingredients over and over and that pretty much limits what I can create for meals.
Elizabeth at Mom Cooks has introduced me to emealsforyou.com and I am determined to get better at meal planning with the help of this great website. “emealsforyou.com is an on-line service for customized web-based meal planning, recipes, shopping lists, wine pairings, techniques and ideas. We’ll provide you with meal plans and recipes you will love and more importantly, your kids will eat.
Simply make your choices from hundreds of recipes and meal plans or create your own from our recipes, complete with photos. Point and click and you have the recipes and shopping lists ready to print on your printer.” So, not only can I plan meals in advance, but by using their site, I’ll be able to plan and then print off my grocery list. I look at this as a way to make the entire process more enjoyable and allow me to add more variety into our daily meals.
If you head on over to Elizabeth’s site you can enter her contest to win a free 10 year membership to emealsforyou.com valued at $310! The contest ends at 9:00 A.M. February 27, so don’t waste any time, get over there and enter! This is a fabulous prize!

This week I have been so focused on getting my Texas driver’s license that I decided it was an appropriate subject for my second Thursday Thirteen.
After spending several hours studying for a written test that I wound up not having to take (thank goodness), I decided to post 13 of the 84 questions that are on the driver’s license review. These are potential questions on the actual test. I leave it to you to figure out the answers.
- What does a “Do Not Pass” sign mean?
- How should you react when a traffic officer tells you to do something which is ordinarily considered to be against the law?
- What effects does the use of marijuana and amphetamine have on driving?
- How should you react to a flashing red light?
- What action should you take if you fail to receive the renewal notice card reminding you that your driver liecense is about to expire?
- Once the brakes have been applied, about how many feet does a car which was going 70 mph travel before it comes to a stop?
- About how many feet will the average driver going 50 mph travel from the moment he sees danger until he hits the brakes?
- What should you do if you discover you are in the wrong lane to make a turn as you enter an intersection?
- What is carbon monoxide, and how may it be harmful to drivers? (clue: the word deadly is in the answer to the first part of this question)
- What regulation should a bicycle rider observe? (I thought I was studying for the driver test, not the cyclist test)
- When are bicyclists allowed to ride two abreast in a traffic lane?
- What should you do when coming onto a street from a private alley or driveway?
- What are the penalties for minors (persons under the age of 21) convicted of non-driving alcohol related offenses? (if they’re not driving, why is it on the driving test?)
