What to write... hmmm, came across this quote this afternoon in my e-mail. author is unknown. I wish you enough "I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye." Wouldn't this be an awesome belief/wish for our family and friends we hold dear? I'm thinking this will finds it way to a page some time soon. I have been planning to scrap and keep walking away from my table with valentines cards haha. took two photos yesterday morning of trees in the front yard with a dusting of snow on them. Keep wanting to catch the weeping birch with a hoar frost on it, but usually the sun hits that tree first... and i have been trying to figure out how to do it without the camera lense fogging over. (it was 12 degrees here last night as the low so it is cold enough in the am to get the frost but also cold enough to fog the camera lenses) Tonight James jumped on the sofa and knocked over the crystal lamp (the one that was the first fancy expensive thing we ever bought together almost 20 years ago now) kinda sad but, doing ok. [yes, he's alive and not even bruised or bleeding] he knows. hopefully this will put a stop to the gymnastics in the living room but i will not hold my breath on that one. My fil started his cancer treatments yesterday and so far so good, it may take a few days or weeks before we really see how he's doing with it. but in about mid Feb they will insert the radio active disk into him and then test him for how much radiation he is putting out. all of us in the family (besides mil) will not be able to stand next to him closely for sometime between 3-8 months after. that will be hard to do. so, thats pretty much it for tonight and until next time I wish you enough!
Hee hee... Just had the INTERNET version of my tea leaves read... From: JBgreendawn Sent: 1/9/2006 6:49 PM here is mine... Reading No. 2 You need to create a quiet space for yourself within your heart where you can be silent and listen to yourself. You spend much time listening to other people. Your family, your friends, everyone you know considers you a good listener. Begin to listen to yourself. You have a lot to say. Give yourself the benefit of your own wisdom hmmm... here's the link to have yours done... http://www.willa.com/tealeaves/reading.html Not much going on at the moment, still have a cold but am getting better. Mostly its just been this crazy weather and too much time inside. I'm sure it's just a lack of fresh air thing... (sinus colds in the winter) been making cards and started a page yesterday. Its not done yet, but so far i am having fun with it, Stamped the background cardstock with some new Heidi Swapp Flower stamps i had in my stocking from Christmas and the photos i am 5. :) a very serious and slightly crabby looking 5. its funny. I don't know what to say about those pictures so thats why the page is not done yet. I'm hoping something occurs to me this week sometime. Our toaster has died, and I'm eyeballing a kitchen aid one that they have at JCpenney's where its a 4 slice toaster but instead of 4 holes for small bread it has two long wide slots so sourdough or rye breads should fit into it. (all at once no flipping the bread to cook both ends) I have the idea that kitchen-aid is supposed to be a "better" brand and may last longer than the one i picked up at K-mart (a year ago) had a one year warranty ... lol... they time those things just right? yes? the day after the warranty ends is when they die. (this is not the first thing that this has happened to us with so I'm pretty confident its true.) *Ü* I have been cleaning and organizing my scrap space and one thing i did hmm two weekends ago now is Tim helped me glue my 8.5 X 11 inch paper trays (rubbermaid ones) together , then i stood them upright on their sides to make vertical paper storage out of them, then i took all the papers and cardstocks i had that size and organized them by color and tossed all the various packaging. very cool to see all the paper colors at once instead of the plastic wrappers. so that is how the card making kick got started. Listed a few things that people told me i had to have when i first started scrapping that i never use on e-bay and fun thing all but one thing has a bid on it... :) planning to take the money i make with us to that ck convention in march of course haha... :) I'm starting to look forward to that a great deal.
