Rainy Days & Mondays..

Happy Monday!!
It's a tad bit chilly here in the land of sand and sun, a shivering 48 degrees and wet. I love rainy days and this one looks like it's going to be a good one. So good, as a matter of fact, it's dumping lots of lovely snow up on the mountains. It's so exciting that I've been contemplating a way to get the husband to take a snow day. Until I realized I don't own one single cold weather item in my wardrobe. The closest thing I have is a pair of loosely fitting torn sweat pants so thin in spots I can see skin. I don't own any footwear that could keep my feet warm and dry and, believe it or not, I do not own (or do I know any one who owns) anything resembling a parka. I live in southern Cali where it only rains maybe three times a year and the temp rarely dips below 50. I have clothes for warm weather. Flip flops, shorts, tank tops. Not ideal for a romp in the snow. Hmmmmmm, well, I'll either have to bite the bullet and simply deal with the cold or spring for clothes I'll probably never wear again in my life. Such a dilemma.

Over the weekend I was invited to join the Scrappity-Doo-Dah CT and I accepted. It's a fun forum loaded with cool scrappers and tons of challenges. Pop on over.

Here's a page I did for the Mockingbird Challenge. I used Pistachio Rose by Crystal's Creations.

This is my daughter Lauren. We met down in Pasadena for brunch at the Cheesecake Factory and to see The Half-Blood Prince. It was such a hot day she bought a hat for the walk back. I love the way these photos of her in the hat turned out. I miss her.

Thanks for popping in, I made up a couple of goodies just for you. This is my dog Pooder, isn't she gorgeous?

Sorry, link has expired.

Hope you have a great Monday and I'll catch ya later.
