Have you noticed? SIX whole months have already flown by us. It's happening so fast now, makes me crazy. Even so, today is just absolutely lovely outside, lots of sun an not too hot.
As for my mystery tree, how did I not see it before? Could be any of many reasons. First of all, not all flowering trees blossom profusely every year. Some get a few blooms that only last a few days, some miss the bloom thing altogether. Then, of course, the biggie -- I just haven't been into noticing the many types of flora on my property. This is probably the best reason, although I do check out the Japanese Maple tree all the time and honestly never saw this beauty.
I think maybe this would be a good year to have my eyes checked and order new glasses. I've had these glasses a few years now, so it's time. Mind you, I'm not blaming my glasses for my huge oversight. I see just fine with them.
For those of you wanting to print out all your blog postings and make them into a beautiful book, check out this site. http://blogger.sharedbook.com/. I thought this to be a wonderful idea. A book would preserve a period of time in your life that you can pass on to your family. Also, the prices seemed to be quite reasonable.
At the moment, Miss Tootsie is frantically scurrying around under my desk, most likely trying to find a good hiding place for one of her cookies or chewy bones. Good thinking, kiddo! Who would ever think to look under my desk? And, of course, I would never tell anyone where her hiding places are. So if you're reading this, Moo, don't look under my desk.
Tomorrow, we have a brand new Daily Download kit for you at Magickal Scraps. This one is called "Crayola Garden" and is done in all the wonderful colors of summer. We all take turns picking the themes and colors for these kits, and the July kit was my turn. I will put up the new slideshow this evening.
I also have a freebie mini kit for you today. "A Walk In The Park" was done for a challenge at Magickal Scraps. I hope you like it. Now it is time for me to get busy here, and maybe accomplish something whether it be housework or PC work. Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
