Class of 1965!!

Time sure does fly....I just can't believe I've been graduated from high school 50 years already! (I'm not old enough...LOL) I thought this was a real I bit the bullet and went to this reunion. The last one I went to was my 20th.  I'm really glad I went this time, I saw some that I had not seen in the 50 years since graduation and others that I have not seen in the thirty years since the last one I went to.  It's a good thing we all had name tags, cause there were some I would never have known otherwise.  I am the one that moved away and they all grew old together....still the same "clicks" too....ROFLMAO!! Here is a copy of all of us that attended...I think we had 131 in our graduating class, 26 has passed on and some are in nursing homes and some were just not able to attend, but there were about 90 people (with the spouses and guests) that attended the dinner and dance on Saturday night.  Not a very good photo quality, but the lighting was poor! This is classmates only, I am first one standing in front row...LOL
There was a sock hop for all of us on Friday night, but I didn't make that as my niece Amy had a baby shower that night at the same time and I chose to go to that instead...I did a little Thank You for Lindsey the young lady that hosted it....we had a great time. The QP is by Neli at Lugar Encantado Da Neli
It rained the whole time I was in south Georgia and from what I hear we had lots of storms and strong winds here too, I know I had turbulence on the way over and back and the trip back was delayed an hour and a half and it is attempting to cloud over now. Supposedly we are to have some really rough weather this afternoon and evening.  We need the rain, we just don't need the bad stuff like hail and tornadoes.  But, we have to take what Mother Nature gives us, right?  I am going to close this early and get my "room" ready for the bad weather, get my cell phone and both iPads charged fully, change batteries in my flashlight, get some bottled water, etc and put in there and get my fur babies prepared to get in there if we need too!  Chat more with you next time....I really have a lot of scrapping to catch up with.  Y'all be safe and make lots and lots of memories to share! Hugs! Mat

Whew...I'm tired!

Man this week at work was so very, very hectic...I came home each evening just pooped...I fed my critters and my fur babies, put on my night gown to watch a little TV only to fall asleep (thank goodness for DVRs) to not awaken until morning and then start the day all over again! Well, only 3 more days until no more filing time...we are doing extensions just as fast as I can...LOL!  Then it will be back to a lady of leisure to do my own thing again....YEA!  I have enjoyed this little (3 months) break of working again though. 
Yesterday I spent doing a few things I have cleaning and storing away the heating blankets for the outside kitty condos....washing and drying all their bedding...putting out new boxes for them to sleep/play in...storing away my winter sweats and all litter boxes and putting in all fresh new litter....dusting away the hairballs and dust bunnies....washing and drying all my bedding and remaking the bed....getting a haircut....buying some new plants and potting soil...spreading weed & feed on the lawn....and of course feeding all of them and wonder when I put on my gown to stretch out and watch the NASCAR race (was here this week) I fell asleep after about 105 laps, but awoke before the end and got to see my JJ (Jimmie Johnson # 48) win it...then I went back to sleep until 4:30 this morning.  Today is a finish up the wash day and try to catch up on my friend's blogs....but....Sideways has other ideas....he wants to sleep on my mouse and my hand trying to prevent me from typing....LOL!  See...
Every time I try to remove my hand, he grabs it with his claws to bring it back.  I think I have created a little stinker, he follows me around everywhere just like a puppy and he cries for me to pick him up and snuggles with me at night...and is sooooooo sweet! I guess he is really thankful for rescuing him.  He doesn't wobble as much on his legs now, but his eyesight has not improved nor has the development of his teeth, he still only has the 4 eye teeth and he is constantly biting his tongue....poor baby, but I love him to death and he is the man of this harem around here....ROFLMAO!
I am so far behind on my scrapping, have so many photos of the great nieces and great nephews to scrap, that I will probably have enough to keep me busy for a couple of months after this job ends.  I did manage to create another QP for Miriam's Scraps that you might want to's what it looks like. If you would like it, just drop by her site and pick it up.  I used her MK19 kit to create it.
Well, I need to stand up for a bit and it is about time for the dryer to stop, so need to hang up my clothes and get ready for tomorrow...will chat more next time with y'all and hopefully I can catch up on everyone's lives that I have missed.  I think Facebook misses many messages...LOL! I think I will try to pot or replant some of the plants I bought yesterday before the rains hit this afternoon.  Y'all have a great week ahead and make lots and lots of memories to share with us....Hugs until next post!

A Blessed and Happy Easter Y'all!

He is Risen!  Hallelujah!
Here I am a pretty Easter QP by Laurrie at CheyOkota Digital Scraps using her Painted Easter kit. Isn't it lovely? This is my wish for all my family and friends this Easter Sunday!
Here are a few more pages I've created for the great nieces and great nephews too....thank goodness for QP freebies as I have been too busy to create them this year.  First is Hayden in her pretty dress that Maggie sent to me yesterday....Hayden had been hunting eggs at school. I used a couple of freebie clusters from CheyOkota CT Arlene and a background from Laurrie's kit Sweet Sister Spring.
Next is her baby brother Calvin in a great Easter frame by Neli at Lugar Encantado da Neli. She has some awesome frames for Easter this year as well as some lovely cards and Easter scenes. Don't ya love the bunny?
Here's another frame by Neli this time Miss Annabeth is posing for her mommy in her Hello Kitty bed.  She is just growing up way too fast, but is simply adorable in this shot.
The Hill gang went to an Easter Egg Hunt and all got their faces painted like Neli's frames were just perfect for them's Jade's
And Ruby's.....
And handsome little Jayson...just look at those "killer" eyes!
And then I created a QP for Easter to give away on Miriam's Scraps using her clusters and I just had to use this terrific new photo of my niece Sebrina...doesn't she look lovely in can find the QP on Miriam's page.
I hope all of you enjoy your family and friends with good food and lots of eggs and chocolate and remember the reason for this holiday. Again may it be a much BLESSED one for all! Chat more with you next time.
Hugs, Mat
