Frogs And Snails, And Puppy Dog Tails...

March 29, 2010

Ah, but it's a gray, rainy good morning to you. Next month (in just a few days) we will call these "April Showers" but now they are just the wet ravages of March. March supposedly comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, it has been ravaging the country all month with extreme weather. Let's hope it really does go out quietly.

I will say one thing for this dismal weather. Not being able to do things outdoors leaves more time to stay inside and play on the computer. And that I have definitely been doing. I've been working on my freebie QP's, trying to get a few of them stocked up. The upcoming holidays make it easy to have fun making these QP's. But we will save the Easter ones for later in the week.

This week, I would like to finish up my Daily Downloads. I started them, but then I get easily side-tracked. Plus, this week I have my appointment with my tax accountant, and another appointment with my lawyer. We need to look into setting up guardianship papers for Howie. His Alzheimer's is progressing, and he will have to stay in either the hospital or another nursing care facility. Otherwise, he is doing just fine. Moo visits him two or three times a week, and usually one of the dwarfs goes along too.

As for me, I am enjoying my visit with my son. Those of you who are mothers will understand how no matter how old your children get, they are always your babies. My son is still my "little guy" although in reality he is a 47 year old husband, father and grandfather. And although his hair is turning a bit gray and some worry lines have popped up on his face, he is still my handsome little guy. Here's a layout that I made with a photo I took of him yesterday.








Later I shall make another layout without the humorous little frog and snails inference, but I was in a humorous mood yesterday when I made this layout. Credits for resources used are: Scrap Elements by Lena (frog & snail) and Granny Art (dog).

Now it is time for me to start my day. I shall leave you with another new QP freebie. My inspiration for this one came from some old music sheets. Anyone out there love trains? Hmm? Ok, now I really must go. Till tomorrow, Y'all stay dry, and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Your son looks really good on that picture! Perhaps he could smile another time? LOL
Makes me happy to hear you have a great time with your son.
Is Howie still in the part he realizes what is happening to him or is that gone already? I think that is the worst period for someone, knowing your are loosing contact with reality and knowing nothing will stop that process. Moo is so sweet to visit him so often. Hope you will find a good solution for Howie, I mean the place where he can stay. Also not easy for you to take care of all the things necessary to assure a good life still for Howie. All those regulations and so make it not simpeler it seems. Have a dry day!
Hugs
