This is Sleet!

Winter has finally found Texas! This is not snow!
Out my front door this morning! We had much needed rain yesterday and then the freezing rain and sleet and thunder sleet (sleet showers) this morning. No going to work today! My driveway is a skating rink and this is the back yard.  I think some of my blog sisters up north left the door open again!! LOL!
Anyhow....the outside kitties all have containers to get into that have heating pads and blankets for them, and they are all full too. It was brutal when I fed them this morning, that sleet hurts when it hits your face! We are still luckier than most with the winter weather....ours will only last about 36-48 hours and then we will heat up again.  I really feel for those in the frozen tundra as they are way below zero, howling winds and lots of snow, especially my friends in the Boston area! Praying for all that it ends soon.  We do need the moisture here, just not in the form of ice and sleet!
Here's a photo I was sent of Miss Annabeth...she is certainly growing and cute as a button.  I think she looks terrific in this free QP by Fecnikek. And this one I did for my friend Teri of her brother, his son and new grandson.  I used a couple of kits by Raspberry Road Designs to create this one...the footprints are by Aunty M Designs recolored.
I haven't been on my computer much because of the focusing problems, but the second eye will be done this Friday and then watch out! If it does as well as the first one, I will have no problems at all with seeing and scrapping and visiting blogs again.
Well, since I have an unexpected day off, I think I will do some "catchup" chores around here.  Y'all stay warm and safe and make lots and lots and lots of memories to share! Have a terrific week and I will chat more with you later! Hugs, Mat

One done, one to go!

First eye done on Friday, all went extremely well! I can see, but still have to close one eye to read as one needs glasses and one doesn't....LOL! No problems, no pain, just have to give time to heal properly! Best way to heal is to I did lots of that on Friday afternoon, night and most of Saturday afternoon and night.  Feel great, just restricted to no lifting, nothing strenuous...blah, blah, blah!  The fur babies are loving all this "sleeping" time! ROFL!
Anyhow, I have not been on the computer much, just long enough to post on Facebook, this page I did for Penny and Weymond to celebrate their anniversary yesterday. I used the free Valentine's Day gift from Arlene at Baby Bear Creations. Thanks so much Arlene for the lovely gift.
Well, not on too long so will chat more with you later, hope all had a lovely Valentine's Day and got to create lots of lovely memories to share. Hugs to all until next time. Mat

Another Week Gone

Another week has flown by! I am enjoying the little break of working now that I am in a routine again...LOL!  The fur babies are getting okay with me being gone for the day too!  I ran around this house like a mad woman yesterday getting things done that I normally accomplish during the week.  I am all caught up now, so thought I would post a little note to all!
I downloaded some really cute photos of Jade & Ruby that Jason took when he escorted them to the Father/Daughter Valentine's Dance...they are both at the same school now making it a little easier on him...LOL! More pages to follow later.  The one Margaret took of Hayden & Calvin is priceless, I just love her wind whipped hair and his cute little backwards cap.
I created this page using a frame from Neli and a background (recolored) by Miriam. I used "Pearple" since it is Ruby's favoritest color...ROFL! That is daddy Jason looking on!
This one is the same background recolored yet again (I love the burst of it), with the frame just 4 sizes and the lace and roses and teddy bear are all from different kits by Miriam. I am giving this one as a Valentine QP at Miriam's Scraps if you would like to use it.
Well time is finally here for the first cataract removal this Friday, then if all goes well on the last Friday of the month, they will remove the other one.  Will be glad when it is all finished and I can get back to my digiscrapping...LOL!
I hope your week has been a great one and that you will have a wonderful one next week as well making lots and lots of memories to share! Chat more next time...Hugs, Mat
