Memories And A Freebie

October 27, 2009

Good morning! It's very gray and rather damp and cool this morning. Miss Tootsie and I have just returned from her chemo appointment. That's three down and one to go for this round. She'll be really glad when today is over.

Next week, my friend Su will be celebrating her crone rituals, and a few of us have made little gifts to help her scrap some of these happy moments. Here are previews of my gifts to her. Of course, they are QP's, and given with my best wishes.

Last night, daughter Audrey called and said she will probably be arriving this Saturday for a week's visit. This will be nice, as I haven't seen her in quite a while. I think Uncle Moo is looking forward to seeing her too as he has already volunteered (grumbling) to pick her up when she gets here.
I will never forget Audrey's first Christmas. She was only a few weeks old, and Moo was home on leave from the Army. He was just sixteen years old. When his leave was up, he put all his money on the Christmas tree for Audrey with a note saying that the money was to buy some oil to keep her warm. Memories.....sniffle sniffle....
Wow, where do these memories come from? Every now and then I see or hear something or maybe just say or do something, and the next thing you know the memories come flooding back. Oh my, and I have so many. That might be one of the plus things about getting old. At least you have tons of memories to keep you going. Some are good and some are not so good, but they are the cornerstones of your whole journey through this life.
Enough already! I will be digging out the tissue box shortly. Today I have some errands to do, plus I need to check and see where my new check order is. It's hard to pay the bills without them. I do have another Halloween QP for your freebie today. This one is just a bit different, but still quite nice I think. Now it's time to make the donuts, so Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
