Have a happy Monday everyone..

What gives you hope? Seeing a rainbow reminds me of God’s mercy and justice and that gives me hope.

How often do you get your haircut? Describe your worst haircut. Not often, every three or four months I would say, when the ends get so damaged I can’t get a comb through them is my timetable. My worst would be a toss -up between a curly red perm, and the ‘Farrah Fawcett’ look.

What’s your most treasured piece of jewelry? Why? My gold love knot ring. I have had it since before my sister got married. She has been married for 28 years. I know that is how long I have had it since I stole it off her dresser (LOL). And that is why it is my most treasured.


>But I have more visitors and more followers. When I go to their blogs, I always think they are so much better and more interesting then mine!

I also have another page in my guestbook, happy days! I get so excited over this little expressions of kindness.

Tomorrow I am going to Albany for three days, I was supposed to pack tonight, but my clothes are not dry. I probably should put them in the dryer, but I hate putting my sweaters in the dryer, I am always afraid they will shrink and look horrible. I guess I will have to put them in for a little bit, if I get most of the wetness out, they will dry by morning and I can throw them in the suitcase.

The other thing of concern is the weather. It was snowing when I got home and as you know, Albany is north of here! I made sure to get a snow brush this time, and they gave me a Ford Escape 4×4, my GPS is working and I got a car power thingy so I can plug in my phone and use Verizon Navigator if I have to.

Now I am going to pack. No sense putting it off.

>Books and Prezzies from Cookie!


My friend Cookie sent me the following books and presents.

She had promised me these books a while back, but since then she has had some major health problems and her husband died, so I thought she had forgotten, so then I kind of forgot, then I got this big box in the mail from her. I couldn’t figure out why.

Two books: Dearly Devoted Dexter and Dexter in the Dark by Jeff Lindsay; a miniature calendar with kitties on it (I gave it to Gwen, she thought it was soooo cute!), a cardboard tea pot, two tea bags and a magnet. I was bowled over by her kindness.

Then I opened the first Dexter book (it is actually the 2nd in the series, but I have already read the first) and inside was a bookmark! So I am using the bookmark in the Dexter book I am reading and will continue to use it. Hopefully I won’t lose it or leave it in a book when I return it to the library.

Incidently, neither of these books apply to any of the challenges I am currently doing, nor does the book I just asked MaryAnn for, I just love Dexter and Agatha.
