Long Ago - March 24, 2014

Finally finished the second layout.  Now I just have to cut all those pieces.  What was I thinking......

Oh well, it is good exercise turning that Cuttlebug handle.  All those fancy Spellbinders need extra rolling to cut them all the way.  Oh yes, I am using the waxed paper. 

Friday is our trip to the assisted living home.  I'm sure the bunnies will be hopping.

Have a great week.

Grandma - March 23, 2014

What a beautiful day today has been.  I have had the windows open and the breeze is blowing.  The windows were closed for that mini rain shower.  Still cold up North.  Expecting a storm to come through next week.  In the 30's today.  Thank goodness I am a Florida girl.

The Card Blitz was great.  The ladies had no problem getting each project done.  Lot's of visiting going on as usual.  :-)

This week we have our layout classes.  We do two layouts during the class.  So our first layout was a request.  Someone wanted a Grandmother page since we did Grandpa a couple of weeks ago.  I had some great Grandmothers.  Both were very unique.  So here are my Grandmothers.

Gotta get back to cutting out all those pieces. Then start the next layout.

Have a great evening.

You're the best! - March 9, 2014

Did ya'll remember to Spring forward with your clocks last night?  I always love the way to help me remember which way the clock goes.  Spring forward and Fall back.  I started moving the clocks forward yesterday.  Dang!  I didn't know how many clocks we had.  But then as I worked on the second layout I kept saying my word it is way past my bedtime.  Then I would remember the 'real time'.

Been interesting around here the last few days with all the rain and cold.  Finally the sun came out and the temperature started rising. Yep, the blanket came off Pokey.  Boy was he a happy camper to have that warm sun on his back.  He is probably like me.  Those joints and cold weather don't mix.

I sat in my office working on layouts the last couple of days and have enjoyed seeing the wildlife.  Well, almost all the wildlife.  I saw a funny tail swish by my window so I got up and went to investigate.  Low and behold there was a pitiful looking fox after the cat.  We have a wild cat the we feed.  He, I say he because we can't get close enough to tell.  So we call him Tom or I just say here kitty when the food comes.  He often lays on the front mat waiting for his morning hand out.  Here is a picture of him drinking out of our fountain.
But I am getting away from my story. That fox was not the kind you picture with the fluffy red tail.  His tail had very little hair.  I am usually a softy for animals but our Tom comes first.  I had noticed how Tom would eat a bite and look over his shoulder.  Now I know why as I watched him run around the corner after Tom.  He came back around the front and started chasing the squirrels.  Then I lost track of him.  The next morning I didn't see Tom, but the fox was wandering the yard.  He finally crossed the street and laid on top of an electric box.  Went back to work on the layout. Spotted Tom later in the day sunning himself on the drive.  I put his food out.  He kept looking over his shoulder.  All of a sudden I spotted the shadow of the fox easing toward the front door.  Needles to say that Tom high tailed it out of there.  I opened the door and shooed the fox so he wouldn't chase Tom.  The fox went to the front of the yard and sat.  Then he slowly started back toward the house.  I clapped my hands and off he ran.  The last time I spotted him he was on the road way around the bend on the way out of the neighborhood.  I spotted Tom later laying in the lawnmower seat.  I guess the fox will be back but as of this morning Tom was again laying on the mat at the front door waiting on breakfast.

Here is our second layout for this week.  It is a wonderful thing to encourage kids.  It is really great to recognize children for their character.  My Great Niece received recognition for her character last week.  So our layout shows her participation in the day of recognition.

Boy, I must have gotten some good sleep to have such a long post today.

Happy - March 7, 2014

Geez Louise!!!!  I can't believe we are in March already. The weather the last few days let's me know Winter is still here. I can't seem to get warm.  The wind and rain make it seem colder than it is.  I don't think it got any higher than 45 today if that.  It was still 41 at lunch time but that wind!!! BRRRRR.  Oh yes, and this weekend we get to Spring forward an hour.  Daylight savings time is officially here. 

This week is our week for layout classes.  I know this every other week can get confusing.  The first layout is full of 'HAPPY'.  Such joy on these little faces.

Guess I better finish cutting all those pieces.  Yep gonna count and recount.  Don't want to forget any little piece this time.

Smiles 'til I see you.
