I may not be scrapping but I have been taking some photos.
The Big Guy making one of his last phone calls for the mediation society in our community. He has now officially given up his title of president. He will still sit on the board as past-president but will have very little responsibility.
My new coffee pot. Yellow makes me happy! My very brown kitchen needed a pop of colour. For any of you Starbuckians, the new Blonde roast is really good if you enjoy a milder coffee. I love it!
My little Ladybird catching a snooze in a sunny patch in the kitchen.
New toys make big boys tired. The new IPad was just too exciting. ;) A nap was in order.
Lady and Auntie. Yes, Susan is referred to as "Auntie" to Lady. These two are a bonded pair. I actually would not have adopted Lady had it not been for Susan. I was ready to see things logically and agree with Rob that 2 dogs was enough. Then Susan chimed in telling Rob that he would feel so great to help out this little dog with a new life. Then I figured that if my very logical sister thought this to be a great idea, then it must! hee hee We have a verbal agreement that should anything happen to me and Rob, Lady is going to Susan and Rich. Does anyone else out there do this with their animals? Maybe I'm weird. ;) Gus goes to Lisa and Maggie goes to Diane.
Here are the God-Parents.
As for today, it has been an exciting one for my girls. Lisa had her final exam this morning for her last course in her insurance program. She is feeling good about it and is soooo happy to officially be done school. It has been 18 years since play school! Now she is free, until she finds some insurance course that she figures she needs to do. She had her assessment done at work and their only grievance was that she is not taking enough holidays. After being in school and working part-time she isn't used to having holidays.
Diane left this morning for Europe! She is meeting her boyfriend in Paris. He has already been there for 2 weeks. After Paris they are going to Italy. She is only gone for 8 days. I can't wait to see the photos and hear the stories. I am not a traveller and haven't even seen all of Canada. It is always fun to see my girls experiencing things that I have not. I have been promised a photo of Diane and Eric in Paris. I already have the title for the LO.... "Meet Me in Paris", of course.
Of course, I had to work for that one decent photo of Diane. This is what I got at first. A Derek Zoolander meets Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pose. Yup!
Lastly, if you are still with me on this non-scrappy and wordy post, this murder of crows made a visit to the slough today. They are still circling around and making noise. I am not a crow fan. Ravens just scare me. They just seem so ominous. My father, on the other hand, loves crows. He tells me that they are the most intelligent bird and loves watching the baby crows nest in the big tree outside their apartment. Yes, he feeds them peanuts too. I have yet to see a baby crow in my lifetime and imagine them to be as ugly as their parents are. I still do not like crows!
That's it for today. Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
