A SURPRISE TO ME!



I have had more than one surprise today, actually! Don't you LOVE them? One is that the SUN IS SHINING and we have a beautiful blue sky... but tomorrow more snow is coming. *sob, sob* So I should enjoy this very much while it lasts, eh? (I AM Canadian! *gg*). I see my little neighbours, Tate and Tessa, arrived home from Disney World late last night so I might take a much needed break to go across the street and have a visit with the happy travellers. If I do say so myself, my blog does seem to be coming along nicely, though at the expense of SLEEP; the second surprise is that it's so BRIGHT (but then so are the colors of MEXICO that I LOVE, right?)! Usually I pull towards soft colors, and pastels, and pretty PINKS, but maybe it's a good thing I haven't figured out yet how skin colors can be changed from the few templates that are offered. Does everyone else neglect their health and housework to be a blogger, I wonder? LOL!

Will Wonders Never Cease

My photo
Grammy likes piano music, fireplaces, children's laughter (no better sound in the world!), warm weather, bubble baths and blowing bubbles, tea parties, eating out, shopping sprees, dressing up, being creative, collecting vintage ~ children's book (for their illustrations), aprons and pillowcases, old black and white movies, photo albums, Christmas, Old Maid card games, Mother's Day, travelling by plane and train, remembers fondly ~ births of my children and February 3, 2008! huérfanos desde Chiapas, Camp Oneida, Tom Oshiro, Piper Laurie, Maggie and Jorge, Aunt Trudy and Uncle John, Granny Tweddle, Jean, Grammy and Grampy Hendry, all my wonderful online friends, fifth grade, CKC '71, May Festivals and Frank Holton's Public School Girls' Choir, summers in Michigan and Lion's Head, homeschooling, first flight. I dislike being alone (maybe because I shared my mother's womb with an identical twin?), my feet being tickled, mushrooms, whining, family conflict, long distance telephone bills, bugs (especially centipedes, earwigs, all pinchers and stingers), motorcycles, sirens, not having money, saying good-byes just like AVA (it's "see you later" right?), sarcasm, spit.
