Photo Hunt entry on "time"...

The subject for this week's Photo Scavenger Hunt is "time".  Time has been flying by for me this past year.  A lot has happened!  My daughter gave me a grandson one year ago, moved from Florida to my street, and is now giving me a second grandson!!  WOW!!  Chelsea is moving two hours away.  They are making sure her fiancee likes the job first, so they are delaying the move a month or two.  I am soaking up every moment with Josiah that I can!!

Here is Josiah the day that he was born getting Grammy kisses...


One year later, on his birthday, with his Grammy...


Time flies!!

You have given me a special and wonderful year!!
Your Grammy

Recall info. and fun quiz...

Hidey-ho and good Saturday everyone!  I have two things I wanted to show you.   The first is an icon for the updated pet food recall information.  Just click on the cat below and you will be lead to the most current information from the A.S.P.C.A.

                      ASPCA Pet Food Recall Center    
Also, I found this short, five question
at Cathy's journal.  It's fun!!  What color crayon are you?  Does this sound like you?  Let me know in the comments section!!

You Are a Blue Crayon
Your world is colored in calm, understated, deep colors.
You are a loyal person, and the truest friend anyone could hope to find.
On the inside, you tend to be emotional and even a bit moody.
However, you know that people depend on you. So you put on a strong front.

Your color wheel opposite is orange. Orange people may be opinionated, but you feel they lack the depth to truly understand what they're saying.
What Color Crayon Are You?

Finally, I wanted to remind everyone that entries for The Photo Scavenger Hunt are due tomorrow.  The subject is "time".   Wishing you a good start to your weekend! xox

What up with me...

Wow, things have been so crazy with Chelsea getting ready to move away and my sending Matt back to college that I was unable to do the Hunt and LOLpets this week.  I promise to get things back on track next week with a Hunt subject and an LOLpets entry.  Please forgive me.  I am grieving a bit here, but will be okay.  Thanks for understanding.  Talk to you all very soon!  Hugs!! xox

Josiah's birthday, award...

Happy Saturday journal people =D!  I have been so busy the past few days.  I haven't told you all this, but Chelsea and her little family are moving two hours away next week.  I am quite sad to say the least.  I had Chelsea and Josiah over the past three days while Desi has been working his new job out of town.  It was so nice to have little Josiah romping around.  He is talking some now.  He can repeat a lot of words.  He loves to make animal sounds, too!  Whenever he sees me he howls like a hyena, "Owww-oooo", and when he sees my boyfriend he quacks like a duck, "Aaack".  Too funny!  LOL  Josiah turns one on Wednesday.  Wow!  He isn't walking yet.  He pulls himself up on things very well and stands just fine, but the funny thing is when you hold his hands and try to have him walk he always walks on his tip-toes.  We are having his first birthday party in a park today!!  I'm very excited!!


Chelsea's due date is October 7.  They decided on a name - Jonah Alexander.  I love it!!  Josiah will have a little brother.  I am sure they will be best of friends.  Awww...  I'm crocheting a blanket for little Jonah.  I'll try to have a picture of it when I am finished.  Josiah loves his first blanket I crocheted for him.  Actually, I crocheted two for him so far.  I love to crochet.  Well, I need to get off here and get ready for the party!!  It's a barbeque at a park and a pool!

Oh, one more thing!  I got a NEAT award!!  I was excited!  I received a
Blog of the Day Award yesterday!  Wow!  I wanted to let you all know.  There are so many awesome blogs out there.  I am so humbled.  Thank you!


Have a good weekend, everyone! xox

LOLpets #1, come join in the fun!...

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!... Wow, I just spent at least an hour doing my first installment of LOLpets Tuesday and in the blink of an eye... poof... it was gone.  AOL shut down.  Wow, that can get so frustrating.   Do I have the patience to do it all over?  I will do it for you all =)...

What is an LOLpet?  Well, LOLcat started as a made up language just spoken by cats, but has grown to include other animals.  I thought it would be fun to include all pets and even things other than pets if you would like!  Have fun, no rules!

I'm very pleased with the first LOLpet I have created!!  I hope you get a smile from it as well!!  I am very excited to let you know that I have found two new LOLcat sites as well as an LOLcat translator!  This should give some believability and creativity to our work!  Neat!!!  So this is how LOLpets works:

1.  Take a picture of your pet or choose one you have already uploaded (or from the net) onto your hard drive.

2.  Decide what you want your pet to say.  Remember that this comes from your pet's mouth.  Use the pet translator if you would like.

The Lolcat Translator

3.  Visit one of these two sites.  Upload your picture and words, by following instructions on site, to create your LOLpet!  I find the first site to be very easy.  The second one is a little harder, but is more creative.  I used the second one on my LOLpet.

Lolcats: Im in ur computer makin ur graphix


4.  When finished, save your picture by right clicking your picture and hitting "Save as.." and Save.  Post an entry in your journal displaying your LOLpet.  Please come back to Tuesday's LOLpets and leave your FULL entry URL so we can all view your work.  I will be listing everyone's LOLpet, so don't forget!!  Have fun!!!!!

And now my first LOLpet, featuring my Baby...


If anyone has any questions or problems feel free to email me!  Have a good evening! meow!  xox
