A Gift For You Today

November 4, 2011

Good morning!!  I couldn't sleep any longer so Tootsie and I got up.  It's still quite dark outside, but I have the little fireplace on and it's quite cozy here in our living room.  Tootsie has finished her morning treat, and I'm enjoying a cup of coffee.

All night I have been thinking of today's camera show and all the wonderful new things I hope to see and learn.  I will be looking for a new camera bag and another memory card.  Of course, I could very well be tempted to consider some other purchase.  lol.  Tootsie told me to "go for it!"  See why I love her so much?  She's so good to me!!

Oh, goodie.  I have the weather channel on because I want to see how much rain to expect today.  And guess what?  They are calling for mostly sunny skies all day and temps about 49 degrees F.  Woo Hoo!!   Sounds good to me!

On TV, they are showing pictures of a 1500 year old Sequoia tree that fell down to the ground.  Wow!  What a huge tree!   Some folks had climbed up on top of it and were walking along the trunk.  Gosh, the people look so tiny!   I hope none of the other "old" trees start falling down.  These trees are treasures.

I have a fun layout to share this morning.  The other day, I started to work on a challenge and got carried away.  By the time I was finished, I had forgotten what the challenge was.   The background was created by Zirconium Scraps, and the pumpkin and mouse are from R11.  Of course, the gorgeous little dog is my Tootsie.

I also have a freebie gift for you today.  I made this packet of papers over a year ago for a brush challenge, but I don't think I ever posted it.  I hope you can use it. 

Here's the download link:

Speaking of freebies, you should have a look at the beautiful kit that Kyra has posted this morning.  It's called "Remember With Tenderness" and the colors are just scrumptious!  While you're there, take a moment to say "hello."

It will be daybreak soon, so I think I'll see about rustling up some breakfast for my little girl and me.  I have been tempting her with fruity yogurt and bits of chicken and roast beef.  So far, it seems to be working.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Happy Birthday Edna --- enjoy your special day -- and Tootsie is right -- something extra special is certainly in order.....enjoy the photography show !!!!

as for lying about your age -- in my early 20's when asked about my age I would unconsciously answer, "18" -- until one day my younger brother heard me and said "who the hell are you kidding?"

then for years, I would say that I was celebrating the ## anniversary of my 21st birthday --- that worked until the anniversary # was greater than 21 !!!!

Age really is just a number -- it is your spirit and heart that matters -- and in that regard you are so very young....your zest for life is amazing...and you are a gift to all of those who are blessed to know you !!

Happy Birthday my friend. Tootsie is right about "go for it," you deserve a present for your day!

Hugs Nani
