My Frame of Mind

These are my thoughts, however I may quote those who are smarter and wiser than I am.

We interrupt this Blog.....for Stampin' Memories!

This weekend will be one of beautiful weather, paper, glue and scissors with the girls.
You would think that along with our pictures that we would only need paper, glue and scissors.
Fourteen totes (so far) packed! Ya just never know the right little do-dah needed to complete that oh-so-special memory packed layout, eh?

Even though I get a bit stressed anxious preparing for our Stampin' Memories SB Getaways, it's worth it when we finally arrive, get settled and start SCRAPPIN' !

Every once in awhile other than local newcomers, we have an unexpected surprise guest and this time it's someone we consider Close To My Heart Royalty.

Ya think she'll fit in with our wild and crazy scrappin' group?

The Martha Stewart in me wants me to make sure that she has a fun time..
leaving her newborn grandbaby girl, interrupting her move on Monday (!)
and driving about 8 hrs each way...

Thank goodness I have Monday off to recover!

I am My Mother's Daughter/and Her Keeper

People do not believe me when I tell them that I grew up with I Love Lucy as a mother...
This photo was on the cover of the local paper today from the opening parade of the Sacramento Jazz Fest 2009...

Yup...that's MY mother

Where in the World...?

They are fussy eaters...
They eat 50 species of the 600 species of eucalyptus trees...

They conserve their energy by sleeping about 19 hours a day, which makes them appear intoxicated; a myth that their food makes them drunk....

They have rough pads and sharp claws...

They have two opposable digits on their front paw and one claw on the hind paw and also fused digits for grooming on their hind paw and have fingerprints...

Their name is aboriginal for "no drink" which came about because they hardly ever go down to the ground for water as they obtain most of it from the eucalypt leaves that they eat.

What are they?
Where in the world are they?

Wait!...before I answer both questions, I have to just say one thing.
It's hard, but a good thing.
It will tear at my heart...AGAIN!
It will make me feel warm and fuzzy but distraught with worry, too...AGAIN!
So this is what I have to say...AGAIN!
To my daughter.
Love ya, k, bye!

Yup, she's doing an internship for 90 days to take care of these little guys

right smack in the middle of
Help me.
