Prizes and Changes

Look at what I got in the mail today!


I won this darling little sweater in the November draw on  Delena's Blog, Serenity Now.  If you haven't already, you should check it out.  She's a Canadian, like me, who divides her time between Canada and Arizona.  She crocheted this lovely little baby sweater.  It's really cute.  She also included in her package a couple pieces of scrapbooking paper for me to use .  I'll be sure to post a picture of what I do with them.  Thank you Delena.

My sweetheart had to go home today, without me.  We've had such a lovely time down here together, but work calls and he has to get back.  I'm staying another week.  This morning my friend Mickey arrived from Edmonton and we'll be spending a busy week scrapbooking, shopping, swimming and sightseeing.  we've already made a start on the shopping, have spread our scrapbooking stuff out all over the dining room table, and have turned the pool heater on so we'll be able to go swimming tomorrow.  And if you consider driving home from the airport in the dark sightseeing, then we've begun that as well!  We don't waste any time.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and didn't get trampled in the Black Friday sales today.  Now it's time to rest.

Talk to you tomorrow.
