Sadness . . .

I lost my litte cockatiel, Edward, on Sunday. He liked to ride around on my head. He was on my head when I went into the garage to do some laundry. My husband was washing a car and had the garage door open . . . something spooked Edward and he just flew away.

We had a couple of sightings of him that day in the tree in our backyard. But when I would call to him the other birds would fly away and he would get spooked and fly away with them.

I left food out for him in our tree, but I don't think he has eaten any . . . I'm still hoping he'll turn up, but it's probably not likely at this point. I've had him since February of 2003. I will miss him a lot. :-(

Kathy Leonard's Album

I finally finished the album of Kathy Leonard's retirement party. About time--the party was on June 13th. LOL. Because I took pictures of the pages and then cropped the photos, some of the pages look crooked, but they're not.

Anyway, here it is:

Randomness . . .

Ryan decided that he wanted to be a vampire AFTER Halloween was over . . .

So cute!

I was feeling a bit down the past couple of days, but this little guy always makes me feel better when I'm down:

I just love the look on his face in that picture!

I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving so we can finally go camping and I'll have some time to spend with family and for fun.

Happy Weekend!

Election Day!

Well it's finally here. View an important message from dogs here. I'm so happy I won't have to listen to any more ads on the radio or watch any more ads on t.v. Be sure to go to Starbucks today after you vote--you get a free coffee when you show your "I Voted Today" sticker! If you voted by absentee ballot, well, too bad for you. I have to vote at 6 PM (after tutoring) yuck! Happy voting!

Hello November--Inspiration Monday

It's November and finally getting cooler here in the desert. I almost needed a jacket this morning!

Yesterday I was looking for something fall-y to take a picture of, but all the leaves on the trees are still green, so I failed . . . I should have taken a picture of all of our doors and windows open. We didn't have to turn on our air conditioner for the first time in months!

You may have noticed my new blog banner . . . Scrapbook artist Heidi Swapp posted this cool blurb about gratitude on her blog. She includes a link to the graphics I used and a cool graphic you can use to make a clock--all for only $1.69!

Have a great Monday everyone . . .
