A New Kit "Mouse Love"

June 6, 2011

Good morning.  It's only 5 a.m., and it's already daylight.  I love this part of where the daylight starts earlier and lasts longer.  I could dig it year round.  I'm at work now, sniffly nose and all.  And what to my surprise, the internet was back!  So last night, I was able to upload all of the June collab kit. 

This month's kit is quite whimsical.  We call it "Mouse Love."  A few years ago, I found an adorable picture, on the web somewhere,  of what I like to call mouse love, and I saved it and used it in the logo.  I don't know who painted it, so if you do please let me know.  Here is my preview of Parts 1 & 2, QP's.

Here is your download link for Parts 1 & 2. EXPIRED

Next, you want to visit Su's blog to pick up her first two parts.  Don't forget to take a moment to say thank you.   Here is her preview.

Last night, the Mrs. called me because there was a racket coming from the patio outside the living room door.  I assured her that it was probably just a squirrel trying to get at the bird feeder.  I then put the outside patio light on, and my oh my what a surprise!  There was a small raccoon (not too small) trying to get at the birdseed in the feeder. 

The Mrs' son had replaced the old feeder with a newer one that discourages squirrels.  But it just makes the animals work a lot harder to get at the food.  As soon as they figure out how to shake the seed out onto the patio, they are all set.  I tried to get photos of the raccon, but it's not that easy in the dark shooting through a storm door window.  These are the best shots that I could get, as the flash kept bouncing off the glass.

At the moment, I'm drinking a cup of herbal mint tea.  I did not bring any honey with me, so I don't really think the tea is doing my cold much good.  During the night, I've used half a large box of tissues, and almost a bag of cough drops.  If I never see another cough drop for a while, that will be okay.  And if my nose wasn't so stuffy, I probably wouldn't be such a whiney baby.  I hope Tootsie and I can get outside for a bit today.  I feel bad keeping her cooped up in bed with me these past two days.  She is such a love and never complains.  I know, I do enough for the two of us!!

Now, before my battery is completely dead, I think I will try reading a bit until the Mrs. wakes up.  I really must remember to put the AC plug in my bag then I wouldn't have to worry about the battery running down.  Enjoy our new collab kit.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Neat Raccoon pics, Edna!

I hope your cold goes away fast! Traditional Medicinals makes an herbal tea called Gypsy Cold Care that I like when I have a cold. It doesn’t cure the cold, but it eases it a lot! Feel better!

Hogs, Nani
