Like the title says.... I am sick and not up to blogging tonight... photo of the day is Syd Fisheous... who is the only l
Today has been a sit in a rocking chair and read day.. I am fighting off a cold so my energy is in the negatives right now.
Yesterday I went to B&N to spend my birthday gift card! I bought 11.22.63 by Stephen King, another awesome King - and they always print out one of these receipts that tell me what I might like - usually they are not too far off.. but Nicholas Sparks?!?!? I mean.. really??
It's a sad photo of the day, but it made me laugh.
My photo of the day is another installment of my dino's at play. We last saw them sharing a lemon... however the lemon died a natural death and the dino's are no longer playing peacefully.
Walter the Bronto is taking refuge atop a box of birthday treats while Peter the Rex is dealing with short arm syndrome and can't quite get up there.
Will Peter succeed? Will Walter find escape?
Stay tuned ;)
Yes, I am still sane LOL I was up most of last night making sure no more Earthquakes shook my fish out of his tank. After shocks still happening and I am ready for them to stop. It's just annoying now. I hope to get sleep tonight, HOPE to, because I want to be creative and to do that I need to be awake!
Was a really busy day at work so I didn't have much chance for photo taking... however I wanted to put this where I wouldn't forget it, so here is my photo of the day... I want to submit to this magazine :)
Happy Friday :)
Photo of the day is a shot of my desk at work today. I adore my job to bits and everyone there made my day awesome!! Special shout of thank you to Sue and Lisa for the lovely birthday gifts!! Only three months working there and they know me perfectly :)
I was tickled pink and all other colors of the rainbow today. Sandy Novy gave me a most wonderful birthday surprise today. (My birthday is tomorrow but I will be at work)
I want to thank her BIG BIG for such a lovely surprise that made my day!
There were several Disney postcards of my favorite Disney characters and two, count em, TWO, special edition Lewis Carroll - Alice in Wonderland books... Alice's Adventures's in Wonderland and THrough the Looking Glass. Tenniel illustrated too.
These books just have that wonderful old book smell that makes me crazy happy - if you are not a book lover, that probably sounds funny, but wow - they are just awesome.
And of course, it made my photo of the day!!
Happy Birthday to meeeee :)
Because it was a busy day and because Syd Fisheous was posing so nicely, that I decided to make him another photo of the day. He likes to lay on his banana leaf and it looked like he was body surfing :)
My hunt for a laptop commences. I was hoping to wait until I could afford an Apple, but I need a computer NOW. I miss my daily writing and blogging and photo manipulation and want to get a etsy store going, so I will probably buy a Dell... low end starts around $300. I can do that sooner rather then later.
I just really REALLY love macs!!
I got part one of my two part B&N Delivery. I am a very happy camper, although they really cut the delivery time close. I mean, they say "end of day," which means 7 oclock. This showed up at 6:45 LOL
I am quite taken with the Steampunk book, both for its clear instructions as well as its history and page art.
I also collect victorian paper dolls... so that explains the other one LOL
My goal is to have all of the Alice in Wonderland Paper dolls made... I have one book coming tomorrow. But there are a handful more to add to my growing Alice in Wonderland collection :)
Which is what I titled this piece of mixed media journalling. I will be putting up more photos of it under my "artistic side" tab, under todays date. (or by clicking here)
But I wanted to make this one my photo of the day.
It's been awhile since I got to unleash my creative side and I loved it!
It has to be some sort of miracle, or at least a first... I went to Barnes and Noble to look for paper dolls and they didn't have any. Since I was in the kid section where they have a plethora of stuffed happiness, I spied a little blue hippo all by himself. He looked terribly lonely, so I bought him and brought him home to join the herd of hippos I currently house.
His name is Leonard and his fat rump smells like raspberries. He is a yummy luvvie and apparently his scent is "Cool Pepp" LOL
It also says his personality is honest, happy and helpful. Well, he makes me happy :)
He is a tiny blue ball of fluff!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
