Tis a gray, wet morning, and quite cool. It's actually a bit refreshing, although a few degrees warmer would be just perfect. I did not get many winks last night, so I'm a bit tired this morning. When my little lady goes to sleep for the night, I can lay down and catch a few winks but some times the winks just don't come.

Good Morning, and another gorgeous morning it is!! If it stays like this all day, it will be a spectacular day. Last night I was able to get started on another new kit "September Song." So maybe I'll show you a peek once I get enough of it done to make a little preview.
We also have another brand new Daily Download kit coming your way soon from the designers at Magickal Scraps. It's absolutely lovely, and it's huge. Don't forget to stop by the shop and pick up the the rest of the August kit, "Men At Work." It's huge, and it's only $1.50. This will help us to keep our forum up and running.
I realize from comments, how important Quick Pages are, and I am so glad because I really like to make them. While I was cropping a photo to share with you today, it dawned on me that flower photos are ready made backgrounds for QP's. So that will be my next set of QP freebies.
WOW! I don't know what just happened, but I touched a key and the rest of my blog disappeared!! This thing is just too darn touchy for me.
Last night I tried to update a few music selections on my blog music player, and Playlist wiped out all my music. They were doing some maintenance on their site and I guess they thought it would be fun to toss out all my music so I could start over. The nerve!!
Well, anyway, I managed to find a selection of oldies along with a few country tunes that I like. If you have any favorites you would like to hear, let me know and we will see what we can do. No rap or heavy metal stuff please.
Time for me to get back to work now. I hope you can use this new QP. Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Well, Good Morning! Right now, it's lovely outside with a little bit of a breeze, but you can already feel that it's going to be a bruiser!! My car was returned to me yesterday morning looking like a brand new kid. My son in law did a wonderful job. This morning I dropped it off at the regular mechanic's to have the new part put on, and then hopefully, he will go get my sticker for me. Yup, starting off to be a great day.

Well Good Morning. Gosh, I almost hate to get up, my bed is so comfy now. Ahhh, but life goes on and there is still lots of work to do. My daughter Dee is having a beach party today in her driveway. Let's all hope the raindrops stay away till after the party.
First they fill the whole driveway up with beach sand, then comes all the party trimmings. A bar stocked with lots of good things to drink and eat, grass skirts, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and games, the whole nine yards. I don't think I want to volunteer for clean up duty afterwards.
Let's get back to yesterday morning's little black visitor. Turns out, it was a freshwater crayfish. I always thought they only lived in salt water. Surprise, surprise. The poor little thing must have taken a wrong turn, because he came at least a half mile, maybe more, out of his way to the wrong place.

Just thought I would let you know that as soon as I clicked the word "Post" on blog this morning, the truck pulled up with my new sleeper chair. Talk about first on the delivery list!! And lordy, it's a beauty!!
Now I have more work cut out for me but I will take my time with it - no rush. Now didn't that sound good! No rush!! The only "must do's" on my list for today are getting the link spring and mattress for my bed, and doing some laundry. I can dig it!!
Go back to having a great day.

Miss Tootsie and I had a rather restless night, so not so much sleep. It has been so hot and muggy - well, maybe tonight will be better. Today we have lots to do. First we start by dropping the car off with the son in law. Then back home to do some more work.
Where is that cup of coffee I started to make? I certainly need it right about now. Be right back.
Ahhhhh! That first sip - mmmmmm! This will help to get me jump started I hope.
I have been waiting patiently for a package in the mail, and yesterday it arrived. Wow, I could not wait to tear open that package. Know what it was? Yup! My blogbook. Gosh, it looks so professional. I spent an hour an a half last night reading through it, and seeing all the different layouts, kits, and life events that took place in 2008. If you have a blog, this is a terrific thing to do - print it out and save it for your family. A nice little piece of history.
Speaking of history, before I start any work this morning, I want to hop over to Kyra's blog to catch up on the latest chapter in her family history story. Wow, it is soooooo intersting.
I also got another little package in the mail, a new puzzle game disk to try installing in my PC. I have been lost without my jigsaw puzzles. this monster machine would not let me put my old program in, so I have ordered a new one to try. The jigsaw puzzles are my relaxation, so I hope this one works ok with the PC.
Well, another of my chattering, it's time to get busy here. I will post the final QP in the first set of Fantasy QP's. In a few days, I will let you know when, I will start posting from the second set. I hope you like it, and Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.

With a little luck, the rust on my car will be fixed, my bedroom will be mostly finished, and my new bed chair will be here and in place. That will leave next week for my auto sticker. With all that behind me, I will feel a lot better. Oh happy days!!!
Tonight, Moo and his best friend will go to the Music Circus and see a live Doo Wop show with all original performers. This should be an extremely enjoyable evening for them, especially Moo. Have fun guys!!
This morning when I got home, my favorite little girl was waiting at the door for me. What a beautiful way to start my day. God was ever so good to me the day he sent this little dog my way. The joy she has brought me is priceless.
I will be taking down the link to "Fantasy QP - 02" shortly. So I do hope that you were able to get it. Monday, I will post the third QP from this set of 4 QP's. September 1st, they will be available in my store at Magickal Scraps.
Today, I have a couple of butterfly photos to share with you. I shot these last night around 7:30. Now I'm off to see what sort of mischief I can brew up for today. Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.

It's 8 am, and it's absolutely gorgeous outside this morning. I'm not sure if it will be a bruiser in another couple of hours, but right now it is just fantastic out there. I guess the trick to summer weather is to go to bed earlier, get up earlier, and enjoy the time from 6 am to about 10 am.
Folks, you gotta love this little girl. My Tootsie is walking around with a chewy bone in her mouth trying to find a good place to hide it. Ahhhhhhhh, she just found a good spot. Bless her little heart.
There's another great little girl out there somewhere in mid-America. She is Nani's furry little girl. Her name is Kaline, and today she is 4 years old. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY KALINE. Tootsie sends hugs and licks your way. Head on over to Nani's blog and read all about it. http://chroniclesofnani.blogspot.com/.
Tootsie and I are just waiting for the delivery men to show up. I think as soon as I finish my cup of coffee, I need to start a load of laundry. It's always nice to have clean clothes to wear to work. Yup, off to work tonight, but then I will have 5 days and nights off in a row. Yeahhhh!!!
I really must get busy here, so I will leave you with "Fantasy QP - 02." The next one will be here on Monday 8/17. Just remember, they are only freebies for one day. I sure hope you like these. Enjoy, and Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
p.s. Ever wonder why I say "Y'all"? I am from the Northeast and that is a Southern word. Well, two of my children, and their families, do live in the southern part of this great country, and that little "Y'all" is just a tug from the heart to let them know I love them."Fantasy QP - 02"

This morning we go for Tootsie's last chemo treatment for this round. So far, nothing has changed. For about an hour after the treatment, she is very disoriented, but then she calms down a bit and tries to find her way around. If this keeps up though, I will have to look for a little crash helmet for her.

Well folks, yesterday was a very busy day, but then it ended on a sour note. My little girl has not feeling so well these past few days, and yesterday, seemed to have no sense of balance or sight. It is heartbreaking to watch her try to walk two or three feet without knocking her little head into anything in her path.
I called her doctor, and rushed her to the hospital. The news does not look so good at the moment. She appears to be out of remission, has no sense of balance, and doesn't show signs of sight. Oh, but she tries so hard. We will finish this round of chemo, and then reevaluate. She may have to have another MRI and spinal tap, but that is a few days off yet.
Last night, Uncle Moo came in to play with her. She loves their little snarl and growl game. Even though she couldn't seem to find her chewy that was setting a few inches away from her, she did manage to get out a few growls at Moo to let him know that he could not have her chewy.
In the morning, my daughter in law and I did manage to do a bit of shopping for furniture. I finally made my decision, and bought the sleeper chair for my bedroom. This eliminates the need for an extra bed, and is quite comfy as a chair. I will take some pictures when I get everything here and in place.
We have to go back to the hospital this morning. Tootsie will have more chemo, and be checked again by her neurosurgeon. As a grief counselor, I know all the right things to do, think, feel and say. But as a person, this is not a very good time for my Tootsie and me. In the meanwhile, I'm hoping that Y'all have a great day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Good morning again. It's only 5 am, but I can't seem to catch any winks so I may as well play on my laptop. The little lady is asleep, and it is very quiet except for the sound of the rain hitting the roof. I am not complaining thought, because today is supposed to be very hot and humid, so maybe this rain will help take away some of the humidity. We shall see.
Today is going to be a very busy day. Miss Tootsie starts this round of chemo treatments this morning, and then at noon my granddaughter Jasmine will go with me to the nail salon, and we will both come home with beautiful nails. Then later this afternoon it's back for more chemo for Miss Tootsie. Two more treatments tomorrow, then that's it for another seven weeks.
Petco was having a sale the other day, and I bought a few new outfits for Tootsie. And guess what!!! All but one actually fit her!! Usually we have to return (or give away) most of the outfits because she is in between sizes. This must mean that she has lost a few more ounces. Wowee, good for her!
******I'm home now. Well, we went to the hospital for Tootsie's chemo, but no one was there for that department. Hmmmmm, wonder which one of us screwed up? We'll wait for someone from the hospital to call us before we go back.
Meanwhile, I have a photo to share. It was quite foggy this morning on the drive home, so I tried to get a photo. This one's not too bad. Also, I made a layout using today's freebie QP, which features my grandson, Kevin. Hope you like them. Y'all have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Edna B.
