Thanx Carol!!

What a wonderful friend we have in Angelscrapper (Ms Carol)!! Look at my new blog header she made for me with all my precious furbabies and my man! I just adore it. Nice surprise this morning so I took the time to make a quick Thank you page for her. The "girls" helped me so I had to put a furbaby twist to it. Thanx a million Friend, I love you. Mat

I'm Still Here

Man, I took off a week to move in and get all the utilities, etc transferred. What a rushed time, yet I felt so distanced from all with no internet for a week. When I finally got back to work to my computer there, I had 194 messages to weed through. LOL!
We are still not finished emptying CRAP out of the duplex, but are a lot closer than we were. The temperature is finally beginning to cooperate a little too. We are pretty much settled into a routine now at the new house. It is finally beginning to look like home. Still have 2 rooms to unpack and set up, but finally got my computer all set up last evening. Got one of the new garage doors installed. After the other one is replaced, we can start looking for a house painter for the outside. Finished the flooring except for 2 closets and the 2 baths. We have not EVEN thought about starting on the 4th bedroom or the 3rd bath.
The "girls" are loving all the space and all the new and exciting places to hide. They sure do "talk" a lot more now (I think they are trying to find each other!) They have toys in each and every room now!!!
I took some photos along and hopefully will be able to make a few more pages later, but put this one together this morning using CJS' Goodbye Summer kit. I adore the frames, makes a great quickpage for popping in photos. Thanx a lot Carol for your generosity in sharing your talent.
Well, over to the duplex now, finished with what I wanted to do here today, you know, made the bed, vacuumed the rugs, mopped the floors, took my shower and made a scrap page. Now to bring over a couple more loads to stack into a room to unpack during the evenings this coming week. LOL!
Thanx a lot for the visits friends and leaving all the encouraging words and most of all the hugs, love and the Mint Juleps. Love you all....Later, Mat

Ike is Visiting

Good morning all, Ike is trying to invade our area as I type this. We are experiencing some much needed rain right now, nothing really heavy yet or windy, but "they" are predicting a lot more is on our way. We have battened down the hatches and just enjoying a lazy wet day for now. Plans for moving in are on hold until the rains cease. So after much loving from the girls this morning (amongst all the family phone calls) I decided to make a couple of pages of the babies with a cute freebie overlay from TeriMayo. Hope you enjoy them. Thanx for visiting and I will be checking in later if we do not lose power later on today. Have a terrific weekend, later...Luv, Mat
