Janet and Kip are coming...

This picture was taken when I drove up to Anna Maria Island. Janet was in town with Bob, Kip and Barb and Barb's husband were on the island for their son's wedding. Kath drove down from St. Pete and I drove up from Ft. Myers. It was a great day.

It is so much fun when any of the Cabana Crew can get together. We live all over the place and our reunions are sometimes months and months apart.

Now, three of us will be having a mini reunion for Kip's birthday and e will be in chef's heaven as he is happily menu planning and having me send the Birthday food choices galore. If Janet gets in town here early enough Sunday, we can head to Captiva for an afternoon of indulgence and , I am sure, many laughs.

The last time Janet came, we had to run her and Anne by the UPS store as we all played 'shop til you drop'. Now she can take her goodies back to her new home on Anna Maria.

Sometimes I feel very isolated down here in Ft. Myers. I was talking about this with a young friend just yesterday. My teaching opportunities are up in the Tampa area. My scrapping pals are up there too and so are my kids, whom I love to hang out with as much as I do my friends (waving hi to Rob, Kristen and Chris)!

E is off to work, the house is still and I'm going to finish off some kits and then, hopefully scrap the day away. I have piles and piles of papers etc. piled up everywhere and have come to the conclusion that I am simply more creative surrounded by my mess! Well, it sounds better than "I hate to clean!"

We have an open house here Sunday so cross your fingers,dear readers. The two couples are still interested in our house, according to the realtors so maybe something will budge, move or happen! I need a good night's rest! Posted by Picasa

Hopefully, someone will "show you the money!!"
Can't wait to hear more about your kits. Love the one in your Creations, I just don't know what I would do with it right now....you are so super creative. I wish I had about 10% of your creativeness, but then I would need time too, and that is not going to happen soon. Singleness is expensive at times.
Enjoy your time with Kip and Janet.

Jules, I sure am getting excited about the kits you and Jill are doing. can't wait for the unveiling. I sure hope your house sells soon. Have a blast at your get-together with Janet and Kip. Sounds like fun.

Wish I could join you all for the birthday bash (picture me with a sad face...). I had to order some pictures from snapfish to keep my account active there, and guess what I had printed? Pictures from that weekend when we shopped til we couldn't carry any more! I miss you all more than I can say. Sending hugs and love your way!
