Saturday: Last Day of Spring Break
Last night, I finished my “Fall Break” mini-book! I can’t wait to tell you about this project. It was So fun and easy to fit into “life” so that i didn’t have to stay tucked away in a craft space to do it. Talk about the ultimate in “scrap and GO!” I think this is my new personal development in scrapbooking…projects I can fit into my life, thanksgivings I can fit into the trips, without them being “things to get done” once I get home.
I love capturing the quips, quotes, and quirks of family members to show their ages during these trips. I can’t wait to share more about it, but don’t want to be blogging at the moment, this day is too spectacular outside. I’m making “home” to-do lists, and crafty to-do lists, and am feeling some spring energy in my step…let’s not waste that for heaven’s sake…can’t bottle that stuff!
We had Monkey pull-apart break this morning from a recipe my SIL made once on Christmas…TO. DIE. FOR. Oh, my goodness. And I have a cup of coffee with fresh creamer I bought yesterday…oh, glory for new creamer. I tried the powdered stuff to fill in from my cabinet to “try to use it up” the other day. I am SO PAST powdered creamer. For heaven’s sake, live big if you’re going to drink coffee. I need to post my very favorite coffee recipes. I hated coffee until now. HATED.
Also new to my world, I figured out how to downsize groups of photos for upload using Photoshop Organizer. Oh! Where have you been all my life? My life is changed. More and many photos coming soon thanks to the old PSE. I can’t tell you how excited I am over this. I no longer have to go through umpteen steps to upload photos! Praise the Lord! I don’t know how I missed this before. I’ll try to teach you soon, if I think of it. (Simply put: File|Export| then choose JPG, about 600Xproportional, and change the names if you want…I save them all to a Blog Downsize Photos file). I hear the angelic “Aaaaaaaah!” my son saves for enlightened moments. The Hallelujah chorus might be in the background too. Yes, if you blog and like to put up photos, it IS that good.
Having said that, I have no photos with this post! HA! But, they will come soon. I’ll try to use this post as a guide for what to post next week, K? Sorry about that! The day is just too glorious to upload photos, but I have them waiting when I have time to load them…maybe later when I’m waiting on laundry or something?
In my future today is much cleaning of windows and make up laundry I’ve not done all week! Even in the light of heavy local news and much weighing on my spirit, I can’t help but praise the Lord for this wonderful day he has made!
Plus, my MOM LANDED SAFELY IN NASHVILLE TODAY! She’s on her way to spend the night at my brothers in BG tonight.
–To the laundry room and beyond!!!!!
