Hidey-ho all! We're gettin' ready for a wedding in our house! Yay!! Matthew, my newly-turned 17-year old will be getting into town late Thursday night so I am very, very excited!! He will be staying until Sunday afternoon! I haven't seen him since last summer! Wow, it should be so, so nice to see him! My nephew, Joe, might come stay with me as well, so I may have a full house! Joe is my younger sister, Deirdre's, son. He lives in Virginia and is 21, I believe. I am losing track of everyone's age because we are becoming such a large family.
So, today is my Daddeeoo's birthday!! Happy Birthday,Daddy!!! I love you!! Oh, I wanted to tell everyone something from my Dad...I am so late on this. Bad memory, bad!! He wanted to thank everyone who signed the Journaler's Father Of The Year award for him! He really loved it and thought it was so, so nice!! He asked me to thank you all and I have been doing so few entries and have forgotten. So, he thanks you one and all!! The award prepared by Sylvia is so very nice and has each of your names placed on it!! Thank you!!
I have been playing with my camera the last couple of days and came up with some fun pictures. The first one is of Chelsea. This was a photo I shot and then I turned it into a drawing. Do you like it?
I really like how this turned out. It is kind of artsy. Cool, huh? I also took some pictures of myself. I HATE having pictures of myself taken. There are very, very few pictures of me in this world. I do NOT like cameras pointed in MY direction. I decided that I was going to try and overcome this fear and take a few shots of myself. You guys have been special friends and well, you really haven't seen much of me, so I am going to show you a few shots. Wow, I am really going to do this! LOL
This first one is in my All About Me section. You may have seen it appear there the last couple of days. Here it is a little bit larger. I think it shows my basic personality which is probably playful and friendly.
The second one is of me being thoughtful or "prayerful". I liked this shot.
The third is what my son called "angry". I don't think I looked angry in this picture. I don't like staged, smiley pictures all the time. I like pictures that are taken when someone is off guard....
And here is the last one I am going to show. It is just a side-shot. You can see my big nose. LOL
I am not sure why I should allow all of these pics of me to be in this journal, to be in cyber-space, hmmm....should I press Save? Should I? LOL Actually, this is a way for me to say hello to everyone and to say thank-you for being there for me. Sometimes I wonder what you all look like and wish I could peak even a little more into your lives...
I will be back soon! Take care of one another! xox
