Just a quick blog this morning. I put the new Windows 7 in my computer a week ago, and I am having
trouble gettling my printer/scanner working.  My computer whiz has been busy all week and hasn't been
able to take care of his mother-in- law! Soon, I hope. I keep trying, but being computer challenged,
haven't been able to figure it all out!!! As a result I haven't been able to do as much here as I would like.

Other things have been going on in my world also. You know those bumps in the road...things you
do not expect in a hundred years...that sometime throw you for the proverbial loop? Well, that's
what I mean. I pray things will soon be back to normal and I can slide back into my rut, where things
just bounch along nicely and there are no pot holes, sink holes or even bumps!

My wishes to all who come this way for a lovely week aside!

Smiles and Blessings,

Book The Lion and The Mouse Aesop's Fable

This is a new children's book in our library by Jerry Pinkney. There are almost no words in this book, but the illustrations tell the story.
You might want a copy of this Fable at hand when you page thru this. The illustrations are amazing! done by an amazing artist.
I think you will enjoy just looking at the paintings!

Weather...Can Spring Be Far Away?

I know! I know! Everybody talks about the weather! Can you imagine dealing with all that snow? and kids at home?  (Kidding) I live in Florida, south-central Florida, where you almost never see snow. We did once that I recall in all the years I have lived here. The Southerners so freaked! Scraping it off automobiles and making snowballs and mini snowmen! My sis lives in South Jersey and she hasn't been out in a couple of days. They haven't seen that much snow in years! Florida is known as the Land of Sunshine! but this winter it has been rather gray. Rain expected today and a few cold days ahead.  We do need the rain so there's always a silver lining!!! Wait till summer arrives and we will all complain of the heat and humidity! That's why we have a/c! Florida is a wonderful place to live. ..outside the weather...there are miles and miles of beaches.

If anyone has a comment on weather, Florida, snow, sleet, rain, cold, heat, humidity....etc, etc......please feel
free to do so!

Have a great day! Stay warm and dry!

Smiles and Blessings,

Valentine Cone Victorian

Valentine Cone I made! This is a purchased cone which I have embellished with paper, lace, ribbons,
ball fringe, pearls and pretty pink roses. The cone measures 7". The total measurement with ribbons
etc. is about 16". Hang on a door or cabinet knob. Add this to your Valentine decorations or
display year round! Way too pretty to hide!  I will add this to  my etsy store. Come visit me.
Smiles and Blessings,
