It's Back To School Time

September 5, 2017

Good morning.  It's looking beautiful outside my door.  Today the temps are supposed to be getting back up into the mid eighties.  There's a nice breeze so it won't feel too hot.  It's definitely great weather to sit out on the porch.

Yesterday, I decided to play on my laptop for a while, and the next thing I knew a few hours had flown by.  I brought up a few old kits to play with and ended up with a couple new quick pages.  Next, I repackaged my parts of an old kit that I had made in collaboration with some other designers on our forum "Magickal Scraps."   The title of the kit is "September Song" so I thought it would be appropriate for now.  (Sad to say, the forum has been defunct for a few years.)

A part of this kit was given away each day during the month of September.  This preview is made up of all the daily previews that I made for my contributions to the kit.  Have fun with it.

Here are the new links:




By the time I was finished and had uploaded everything to MediaFire, it was time to make some supper for Pogo and me.  I wasn't up to cooking anything special so I made us hamburgers.  Pogo was hungry and gobbled all of his right up.

It's back to school time, and Audrey sent me an adorable photo of Alena all dressed up and waiting for the school bus.  This is her first day at kindergarten.  Isn't she just the cutest in her "owl" outfit? 

Remember the mosquito (citrus) plant that I brought indoors last winter to see if it would live through the winter?  Well, the plant thrived, and once the warm weather was here I trimmed the plant way back and put it outside near my porch.  I'll bring it inside again for this Winter too.  I'm curious to see how long I can keep it alive.  (It's an annual plant)  Here's a photo of what it looks like now.

While I was taking photos of the mosquito plant, I shot a few of the Evening Primrose plants.  It's such a pretty plant, and the birds love it.

Gosh, I must be thirsty this morning because I just went to take a sip of my coffee and the mug was empty.  Hmmm, let me take a moment here to refill my cup.  I'm getting in the habit of having two cups of coffee a day.  This is a far cry from days gone by, when I used to drink coffee all day long.

Today is trash and recycle pickup day, so Pogo has been busy all morning barking at all the big trucks and scaring them away from our yard.  He is such a protective little fellow.  Right now, he's taking a break from barking at the trucks to finish his breakfast.  What a good boy!

I've already started collecting photos for my next calendar.  I'd like to be able to have the calendars and Christmas cards printed by the beginning of November.    It's a good feeling to have all my holiday things done early.  At least, it looks like I may be. 

I did not have time yesterday to get any new patterns uploaded to the Pattern Page, so I'll try to do that today.  I also have to spend some time practicing loading my gun's magazine.  It's not as easy as it looks.  I did pretty good at the class we had a couple weeks ago, but once we got to the shooting range I was all thumbs. 

Now it's time to do a bit of blog reading while I enjoy this second cup of coffee.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

What fun to shoot at zombies!LOL. And you did pretty good!
Glad to hear you have less trouble with your shoulder, but take enough breaks when you are crocheting. It will need some more time to hopefully heal completely(and stay away).
It wss a fun time at Magical scraps forum, wasn;t it? It also took quite some time, but at the time we just did it and found time and made some awesome collaboration kits!
On quicdkly to your next posts.
