Yucky Weather Today

October 18, 2009

Cold, wet, and windy!! In other words, just plain yucky weather this morning. And more like it on the way. Oh joy, oh joy!! I'm not sure if even the ducks are happy with this cold wet stuff. But I suppose it could be worse. It could be snow. Winter doesn't officially start for another two months, but it is already starting. Must be an omen for a long and cold season ahead of us.

I have this foolish talking clock that drives people crazy. I'm used to it and it keeps me company, but Audrey has threatened to do it bodily harm. I have to keep my eye on her when she is here. The clock is 45 minutes late, and every morning at 10:45 it says "10:01" over and over for maybe 15 or twenty times. (at least that is what is seems like) In a couple more weeks, it will be 15 minutes early because of daylight saving time. No problem.

Last night I went online to find some quotes so that I could do my quote challenge. I found some nice ones, but the very first one I found was extremely funny. It said: "I'll bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween." author unknown. I thought that was hilarious. Then I thought maybe I would scrap it, but ran into problems trying to make nude skeletons. Weird, but they are already sort of nude. No fun here. No, I will keep searching for just the right one.

My new calendar photos came from the printer yesterday, and I was very pleased with them. Now I just have to get the frames and wrap them. Yeah!!! One chunk of my holiday shopping done!

Today, I will go online and order a few more of my holiday items. I just love this online shopping. It makes it so much easier for me to get things done. Especially this time of year when the weather isn't always very nice.

Now Miss Tootsie and I will go and have a short nap. Before I leave you, I will show you my layout for the Brush Challenge. This time we had to use tree brushes to make our layout. It features one of my favorite poems, "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer, and brushes by Brush Portfolio. Y'all have a great day now.

Hugs, Edna B.

Thanks for the warning about the talking clock,lol- at least I can mentally prepare myself for that now. I think I might take Audreys side in this case, Rofl.
The quote is brilliant - I had a different kind of Halloween costume in mind- body paint would be fun for nudists( lol-I'd love to paint in that case !) , but you definitely have a point with the Skelettons.
