Thanks to be, another gorgeous day outside. This morning as I was leaving work, I saw a huge bird in a tree across the street, and tried to get a couple pictures. It was a great big brown hawk, and of course, it wasn't in the mood to be posing for me. The best I could come up with, was a rather pleasant silhouette.
This morning, my Tootsie is spooked about something outside our windows. She was growling and barking at it for a while. Now she is just sitting in the living room, looking up at the windows, waiting for whatever it is to show it's face. Poor little thing, I haven't a clue what it is out there that's bothering her. Maybe a ghost?
Maybe she'll feel better after a nap, which is where we will be heading shortly. Need to get a bit of sleep - tonight's another work night. Hopefully the deer will be out romping in the field across the street from work tonight. I really enjoy watching them when they are being playful.
An awful thought, but what will we do when they are gone? When man has finished using up all the wooded land and chased out or killed off all of these beautiful creatures? Hopefully, enough of today's children will be care enough to turn things around - to undo the damage their parents and grandparents did to the land.
Philosophically speaking (Snowy, that's a great $20 word for you), oh my, now I've gone and lost my train of thought. I just had to slip in that word thing, and it messed up my thought process). Another wonderful part of the "Golden" years - very fragile thought processes. Gosh, everything about me is becoming "fragile." Oh well, enough for today. We are going in for our nap, and y'all need to get outside and have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Was the rain and wind very ferocious where you are during the night? We had a bit here, but I fell asleep and must have missed the worst of it. the weatherman said it would be quite miserable outside during the night, and rainy off and on until sometime Thursday. He said we could get an inch of rain during that time. Imagine that? An inch of rain spread out over two or three days? The man must not be using all of his brain burners.
With this yucky weather, I don't seem to be getting up any energy. I'm a sunshine girl. Need the sun and the flowers, birds chirping and warm breezes to get into an energetic work mode. right now, I think I'd like to just go back to back and watch TV or read a book, but I'm not going to because I don't like wasting my day totally. Maybe I'll do some laundry, there's always some lurking in the laundry bucket.

Well, I finally decided, my grand opening in the shop at Magickal Scraps will be on May 1st. I tried for today, but the stress of trying to learn everything in such a small time frame was a bit much for my poor fried brain. So I gave myself a little more time, us older gals move slower than the young 'uns.
As for yesterday's big black bird, the closest I can find is that it is a raven. That's cool, because I haven't really seen many of them for quite a few years. Come to think of it, I haven't seen very many bluebirds either. Just 3 or 4 times in the last 20 years or so. I will have to dig out the last photo I got of a bluebird to share with you sometime this week.
Today, I want to do a bit of work on the PC, an spend some time with my little girl. The best part of going to work, or out to do errands, is the welcome that I get from Tootsie when I get home. She gets so excited, she dances around in circles, hops up and down, and gives me kisses. it was one very lucky day when this little girl came into my life.
I keep thinking that today is Monday because I don't have to work tonight. Gosh! Don't want to rush my Sunday away and lose a whole day. Heavens knows, I need all the days I can get. Maybe I will take a stroll around the yard today and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. It's almost time to put the tomato plants in. Maybe I should get my fanny in gear and clean out some of my little garden this week. We'll see. Maybe I will just be lazy today. Sounds good.
Today's photo for sharing was taken by Miss Audrey. For those of you looking for a really cheap house - you know a handyman's special - here's just the thing. Needs a bit of work before winter because it has a few drafts, but nothing too difficult. The best part is that is way out in the country, with lots of land and few neighbors to bother you. Enjoy. Y'all have a great day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Today, I can finally share my good news with all of you. For quite a while now, I have been working towards my goal of getting established at the Magickal Scraps shop. And it's finally happening. With a little luck and lots of help from Snow Raven, I might just make it in time for a Sunday, April 19th grand opening. I will have more on that later. Meanwhile, don't be disappointed if it takes an extra week to accomplish this.
I will still be making freebies for you. It's just time for me to branch out and grow a little. This afternoon, I started working on another new kit. I'm sort of slow, though, because I sidetrack myself. I make a new paper, then I start to make a design for it, and next thing you know - I'm off on a tangent making new elements. Eventually I work my way back to the paper. Even then, by now I probably have to change the color of the original paper because of the new elements. It's just a vicious circle -- but I like it.
Yesterday, I managed to finish up some more challenges, and today I'll share one of them. This is my "L" challenge. The "L" is for Love and Lick. Enjoy. Tootsie and I will be turning in early tonight because I think I have finally overtaxed my brain. Imagine that! Y'all have a wonderful night.
Hugs, Edna B.

I''m a bit tardy tonight, so I'll keep it short. Tomorrow I'll make up for tonight's shortcomings. I've been busy working on challenges, trying to get them done before the end of the month gets here.

Today was rather wet, actually very wet - windy and rainy. Lots of rain! My little plants are quite water logged, the yard is full of large puddles, but the ducks are happy. I suppose that's all that counts.
I did get a few little things accomplished on the computer though. Not much, though I'm getting tired of fighting with this stupid mouse. I go here - it goes there. I move it - it sits put. Nice little invention. And I really must get my nails chopped off. I have to re-type over and over to get rid of all the unwanted letters that get typed along with my words.
I do have a picture to share with you today. It's not a great photo, but interesting. Last night as it was getting dark outside, the deer came out into the field way across the road. It was time for dinner I guess. I grabbed my camera and rushed outside. Had to stay close to the house so the deer wouldn't see me. Needless to say, there is a bit of blur in the photo, but still you can make out the deer.
Along with my new camera, I think I need to invest in Image Stabilization lenses. My hands just aren't as steady as they used to be. Don't know why, but that's life. Anyway it's a great excuse for Meema to buy herself some new goodies.
So, Wayne came by yesterday to fix a few things on the PC. We decided that my laptop could be updated to a bigger hard drive - 360 GB, so we ordered one for me. Also some more memory - up to 2 GB. When he's done, it will be as good as a new laptop except that I will still have my XP in it. Thanks for that little blessing.
Tootsie has been so good these past few days. I keep taking breaks to play some ball with her, maybe that's why. She brings such pleasure to all of us here.
That's all my news for today. I need to get my creativity level up again, lots to do. Y'all have a great night.
Hugs, Edna B.
