Frozen Peas Instead of Ice Packs

November 14, 2009

This morning is off to a gray, damp start. Of course, it's early yet. However, the rain and wind is coming -- oops I think I spoke too soon. I can hear the raindrops hitting the house now. Ah, well, it was bound to get here sooner or later. Everybody else around the country has already gotten a good soaking. So I guess now it's our turn.

Last night, I finally got in the mood to do a bit of work on my PC. My files are in bad need of organization, so that's what I started to do. This will take me a while. I have so much scrap stuff scattered all about. As I have been going along, I really did try to keep things organized, but somewhere along the way, things took a wrong turn. However, this is a good way to find things that have been hiding and forgotten for so long.

I have put my DD projects on a thumbdrive to take to work with me. Once the Mrs. goes to bed, I can work on these. Do you use these thumbdrives? I think they are awesome. I remember when they first came out on the market. I spotted them in Best Buy, and just had to have one. The biggest one they had held 64 MB's. WOW!!! Right away, I bought one for me and for Audrey.

That was just a few years ago, and now all my thumbdrives are 4GB and 8GB. I just got a nifty 16GB thumbdrive for my birthday. I think back to the 64MB drive, and I can't imagine what I could possibly put on it now. My scrap kits are bigger than that!! That's progress for you.

Today, I would like to curl up on the sofa, with a nice book and the fireplace going. What a great way to escape the rain blahs. But! It is not to be. Earlier this week I made an appointment at the nail salon for this morning. So, as long a I am going to be out there getting wet, I will probably do a bit of food shopping too. Then, if I'm lucky, I can take a bit of a nap this afternoon before getting ready for work tonight.

I do have a freebie for you today. I thought I would start giving you the Gemstone QP's. Today your freebie is the Amethyst QP. Amethyst comes in several beautiful colors, but purple and green are two of the favorites, I think. I hope you like it.

Now I am off to start my day. Moo has just come out to say Good Morning to Tootsie. His face is a bit swollen. I think he has been trying to do too much. Hopefully, he will take it easy today, and spend more time lying down with the bag of frozen peas on his face. You heard me, frozen peas! They make a fantastic ice pack. That's all for this morning. Y'all have a marvelous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

lol- I still have tons of of folders to sort out as well - but so far I have deleted 14 gig from myexternal drive which I don't need aymore. Makaing room for the new stuff.Tell Moo to take it easy !!! Otherwise I'll tell him off when I see him on web cam next,lol. Heavy rain here and a lot of damage from the storm . Our road has been closed for traffic and no people are allowed to walk through because of the danger of falling tiles and bricks from the top of the houses. 3 houses down the chimney has collapsed. Shops have closed or not even opened for today, because no people -no business ! the wind had calmed a bit earlier , but is now picking up again.It's howling around our building and we even have hail stones battering the windows.I can feel the walls vibrating from the force of the wind.
Hugs Snowy
