God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."

Wow I must have slept well from 5:00 till 6:00 when the alarm was supposed to go to off. We had a massive storm or we seemed to have since tree limbs were down and the power must have blinked because my alarm was flashing when I woke up at 7:00. I couldn’t believe that I slept that well. I heard Erin up and moving around at 5:00 when she left to go home so she could teach today. I went back to sleep and didn’t know anything till 7:00.

I have to stop tonight on my way home and pick up my new medicine it wasn’t ready last night and with gas at $3.09 a gallon I don’t make trips back into town. Shoot we were hungry last night and I was so tired we ordered delivered pizza instead of cooking or going out. We have a little tiny hole in the wall pizza shop in town that is owned by my niece and her husband that has the absolutely best pizza. A medium pizza is a 16 inch so you can imagine the size of a large. We got half pepperoni and half everything it was so good…I’ve not had a pizza in a while because there personal is an 8 inch and that’s just too much pizza for one person.

Tonight I’m going to try to post the layout I did for Mikaela I think it turned out really cute it’s called Baby in Bloom I’m planning on using a round collage picture for the center of it. I can’t wait to get it all put together. I used glitter and doodling on it; I thought it turned out adorable.

I need to also do the layout about my Dyson so the girls can laugh at me.

But, before I do any of this I need to mop my kitchen floor. I love Ripley but I really wish she could learn to drink without sticking her whole face in the water bowl clear up to her ears. My kitchen floor was one big puddle of water all around the food and water bowls. LOL! I finally put a towel down so we wouldn’t slip and fall. But, I love her so much I don’t care it all mops up! Erin had brought down the scrapbook I’ve been doing for Rip last night so I could add some pages to it. I can’t believe how little she was as a puppy now she’s about the size of a small pony. I’ll see if I can find some pictures to share she is adorable. I am just sad that she’s got such an awful disease as Addison’s; she will not be with us as long as we wish! But, Jerod and Erin are very careful with her and make sure she has her meds every day and that she gets her shoot once a month. They are great puppy parents and will make wonderful parents once they are married.

And speaking of parents still no sign of Mikaela; I promise to update everyone when she is here.

Oh tomorrow night at 11:00 p.m. is the start of the celebration of the new Harry Potter book Deathly Hallows…I’m really looking forward to reading this. A friend of mine works for a library the only thing she could tell me is it’s 759 pages. She was able to open the box and get the book ready to go on the shelf on Saturday so she was able to look that far at the book. So that means it’s about 100 pages longer then book 6 the Half Blood Prince. It took me about 8 hours to read book 6 so I would say about 10:00 on Saturday day morning I should have finished Deathly Hallows if anyone wants to talk to me about it.

Well time to get off! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday, try not to work to hard. To all my friends if you are starting your weekend early please have a safe weekend.

Ok I found this really cute Layout of Ripley and thought I'd share it with you :)

Love and Hugs,

LOVE that layout and cannot wait to see your Dyson layout. I am so with you on that one. I'd be doing a layout too. Sometimes the LO's I do about the ordinary every day stuff like that end up being my favorite work.
