A Quick Page For Old Memories

December 29, 2016

Good morning.  Today is gray with a very good chance of rain for most of the day and maybe part of the evening.  I guess I'll do my grocery shopping tomorrow morning.  I'm not really crazy about shopping in the rain. 

Well, yesterday after work, DIL Janet came by and we had a lovely visit getting caught up on each other's news.  After we had supper, we opened presents and watched a bit of TV.  Wow, Janet really spoils me.  She not only brought me a bag full of presents, but she also brought home-baked cookies, lemon cake, lemon squares (by now you must have guessed that I like lemon!) and a blueberry pie.  Later today, I'll take more photos later today.

Today I have some photos of a few more of the gifts that Pogo and I received from two of our friends.  A new duster to take on my vacation, and a new sweater for Pogo.  There was also some craft tote bags and a coffee mug.  (they don't show)  Pogo also got a handsome digital art photo of him and his friend Izzi,, and I got two beautiful books of my friend Andrea's creative digital art.

I also got some wonderful news this week.  Daughter Deanne was approved for her LTC (license to carry).  She'll have to wait a couple more weeks to pick it up though because of her city's backlog.  Congratulations Deanne!!

I was going to try out my new ergonomic crochet hooks the other night, but I did not get around to crocheting, so tonight I'll be trying them out.  They have soft rubber handles, and each hook is a different color.  I ordered myself a little carry bag to put them in, and that order arrived last evening. 

Today I need to put a few of  our new things away.  On my next trip out to do errands, I'll pick up a couple frames for Pogo's new pictures.  Then we'll find a place on the wall to hang them.  I have just the place in mind.

Yesterday, I made a scrap page using one of Kyra's kits "Memories Are Time Machines."  I found a photo of a cousin of mine on the web, and I downloaded it.  I used this photo and a photo of my brother to feature on the scrap page. 

I've made the layout into a quick page for you.  I hope you you can use it.

Here is your download link:

Now it's time for me to get a few things done around here.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh I do love the scrap page that you made of your cousin and brother! Thank You for the scrap page. I have the perfect photos for it.

Congratulations to Deanne for her LTC... that is so awesome and so glad that Janet came over to spoil you. Such fun for you both.

I am on my way to the doctors so I have to get up and get in the shower. They will be here before I know it... Have a fantastic day. Let me know how you enjoy the crochet hooks. I actually seen a set of them when Karyn and I was shopping for her yarn.

Hugs to you and Pogo... Love, Beth and Cisco...
