What a great weekend this has been


Right after I put out the "Open House" sign yesterday, the door bell rang. And, just as good as having someone come look at our house, was a man holding this beautiful bouquet of flowers. "Flowers for you!" , he said. And they were. Janet and Bob sent these to me for my birthday and they are so lovely! The vase has this fetching sprite on the front and the whole thing just took my breath away. Thank you both so very much. Also, many thanks to all the cards, well wishes, e-mails, e-cards and phone calls I have received this weekend. So many of you went out of your way to make sure that this was a special occassion for me...thanks. You have touched me in ways you many never know. And Gail, the Paradise Found plaque is on the shelf right abouve my printer!
The kids are starting to rouse and I need a lift to Big Lots to get a 30$ printer to use in my classes and for crops. I don't want to take my good one(s)but need one for a photo transfer class I am working on and for printing away from home. More later...enjoy your day!
