No Smoking!


If you smoke and haven't quit yet, Today is the day to lay them down.

Just for today, TRY IT PLEASE!

It may save your life.

My husband Robert smoked for 25 years and a few years ago, he brought me a flattened cigarette pack. He told me to scrapbook it, because that was his last pack ever, and it was. He has not smoked in four years now.
He quit cold turkey, and YES, it was hard, even on me. He ate lots and lots of hard candy for weeks. He feels so much better after quitting (healthwise and mentally).

Paper Clips?

Today is National Paper Clip Day! How could something as simple as a paper clip get it's own day?

But in the end, it is just a paper clip!

Fill in the Blank Friday

1. Something that is very near and dear to my heart is, my grandchildren. I have 5 beautiful granddaughters ages 2 to 16 and they live 5 hours away. I miss them every day and they own my heart right now.
2. Today.   is a beautiful day and I should be outside instead of in front of the computer.

3. The most fun I ever had was going to the Pleasurefest Renaissance Faire in southern CA a few years ago with my hubby. Was a great little vacation.
4. True friends are few and far between. I used to think I had many, but as time passes, you learn who your real friends are.

5. Something that makes me terribly happy is    spending a weekend off with my husband, whether it be on a trip or just watching tv. I love that man.

6. A good way to spend a sunny day is     at a festival, at the pool, cookout with friends, too many to mention.
7. My favorite celebratory food is  almost anything I don't have to cook.

Have a great Friday!

Wordless Wednesday

While at Walmart the other day, they had all little dog sweaters and this cute raincoat for $1.00 in a cart at the front of the store. I bought several sweaters also for winter.

As you can see, Dexter was not quite as thrilled with the idea as I was, but he sure looked CUTE!
