Today is MAGIC!!! There is electricity in the air, and if you are flying, be careful. There are lots of Holiday riders and their familiars up there. Be safe! Daughter #1 is flying here right this moment as we speak. I hope she took plenty of stuff to keep her stomach settled. She does not exactly like flying, especially on a broom.
I'll have to get the coffee pot a'brewing, and keep an eye on the sky here just in case she needs a bit of help landing. One year, she got so nervous that she when she landed, she hit the ground too hard and fell off her broom. Bag and baggage everywhere, and legs up in the air. KABOOM!!We had a bit of patching up to do that year. Uncle Moo is grumpy this morning, so I bet he is remembering that very same landing. We do so worry about our little ones.
Okay folks, I can't keep you in suspense any longer!! I will be kissing my sixties goodbye in just a few more days. That big ugly seven number is lurking right behind me, just waiting to trip me up! My whole life, I knew that this was coming. It was inevitable. But Wow! How did it get here so fast??? I don't know yet if I like it or not, but I don't suppose it matters much because I wasn't given a choice of getting older or staying younger.
I will just have to make the best of it. More learning, more traveling, more photos. That will be my agenda for the next forty years. That's if Vista and Windows 7 don't drive me crazy first!!!
Today, I am still quite achy from all the furniture moving that daughter in law and I did on Thursday. She came over to crack the whip (only kidding, she really is a sweetheart), and keep me on my toes until the wall unit in the bedroom was emptied, cleaned and removed from the house altogether. Moo and one of the dwarfs carried it out to the sidewalk and put a "Free" sign on it. It was gone in a less than an hour. Thank you Janet!!
My son in law, Eddie, came over that night and put in a new electrical unit and then moved the fireplace into place and plugged it in. Then he set up my new TV and got it working. YEAH!!! It all looks so nice. I will take some pictures later today. Thank you Eddie!!!
Also, today being Halloween, Miss Tootsie is getting excited. Not only does she get to go with us tonight on our big ride around the world, but first she gets to dress up in her pumpkin costume and do a bit of trick or treating. Moo, she's stopping at your room first!! Be prepared!!
Take note too, that I have just changed the slideshow at the top of my blog, and am now featuring the brand new November Daily Download kit. There is also another fantastic add on kit to go with it that you can pick up in our store for just a tiny little sum. This is another fantastic kit, and we all enjoyed making it for you. Here is a preview of the November add-on. Bet you can't wait to get it, huh?
I think now that I have chomped on your ear a bit, I will have myself another cup of coffee, and get ready for Miss Audrey's landing. Before I go, I will share a photo I uncovered of a Halloween past. This photo was taken in 1987, while I was getting ready for my big ride. In case you are wondering, the red face paint is so that my eyes and cheeks don't get too much windburn. Us ladies have to be very careful about our beautiful faces getting too much sunburn and windburn.
I'm off now. I wish you all a VERY HAPPY SAMHAIN. Y'all have a really fantastic day and night now, you hear?
Hugs, Edna B.
