I have wanted to make a card all day today but had to do the house duties. We got the lawn mowed and it looks fairly good in spite of all the onions. Then it was lunch time which was a simple one of shrimp and salad. Jerry got the jeep running and we took it for a ride to get gas. He is now watching the race. Our driver, Dave Blaney in the CAT car, is not doing well again. At least both cars made the race today. It is the first race that Jeremy Mayfield has qualified for. Maybe he will make more now. It makes Jerry feel so bad that he works so hard and gets no satisfaction from the way they run.

It is my mom's birthday today and I called her first thing this morning to wish her a happy birthday. She wanted me to sing to her, so I did, even tho it is off key. She liked it and laughed. Hard to believe that she is 77.

I have never mentioned my love of camping on the blog yet. I look longingly at our camper in the back yard and wish we could take it more often. We will be going to Savannah over Easter so that is something to look forward to.

Maybe as soon as the race is over I will make a card. We shall see.

Thanks for checking in.

2nd post

I am so impressed that someone actually found my blog and commented on it (thanks Ashley) that now I am motivated to keep at it. I hadn't even checked in as I thought I would be lost in the sea of blogs.
Kathy and I are trying our hands at blogging and I may even post some photos of cards that I have made. I am gradually learning and getting better. I am trying a new technique every week. The next one will be a shaker cards. We (Kathy and I) bought some pretty beads at HL yesterday and now I learned from Gina to use the windows from pasta boxes and even from the plastic that encloses kids toys for the windows. Isn't that a great idea?
I think the focus of my blog will be 3 things--1. stamping and cards 2. weight loss and 3. The Secret and staying positive with lots of gratitude for my life.
So, that is all for today and I will be back.
