Might be trying out the scanner today

I have a picture of my daughter when she was about 16 months old and she is standing there crying with her fingers in her mouth. I can remember it so clearly but it's so foggy *okie is beginning to think she is just a big contradiction*. I remember having the camera for some odd reason and when she started crying taking her picture. I know I took the picture because her face just broke my heart! I think today I might gas up that new scanner printer and scan that picture and see what I can make that puppy do.

Oh my friend Nancy and I had a great time last night. She won at the casino. I did not. Okay she probably had a better time than I did then LOL. Of course we were out late and have vowed to do it more often! I think I might be a good teacher at this "successfully single" business!

My cousin Teresa called me and she is coming to spend the night. Her husband is a ranch manager and he has to get the hay cut this weekend so she figured a night with me would be nice. I know there isn't a lot of closeness in extended families sometimes, and even branches of my own aren't close, but there are some that I am very close with and my cousin Teresa just happens to be one of those! We use to spend a lot more time together before she got married and I do miss that. It's not that her husband minds company or would even care if I was there every weekend, it's just that after she got married I felt time with her husband was the most precious thing she could have due to his long odd work hours. You might have saw Teresa in a few layouts over the years. We now have Thanksgiving at her house. One of the cool things about Teresa's visits is that if I am working on a project she will sit in the recliner and we will watch tv or a movie or just talk and it doesn't bother her a bit. Oh who am I kiddin, she knows them's the rules if you are coming to visit me! *okie cracks up laughin because it's oh so true*.


  1. Didn't get to comment yesterday, but you are going to love your Dell laptop. I just got one a couple of months ago to replace my poor old one. I use the webcam to use Skype. Skype is a communication program (free) that you can use to talk with other people that also have a web cam and the skype program. I use it to talk with my daughter and her kids who live about 12 hours away. Companies also use this program for conference calls and such. It is really great for families and I suspect that there alot of families out there that use Skype to talk with their kids that are away at school. If you start using Skype you will love it. Hope you have a great weekend. We are going to have rain all weekend so it is inside activities for us.

  2. Family time is the best time when you can carve it out. Family rolls in and out like the ocean, sometimes you connect and sometimes ya don't but you still love em cause like friends you can't pick em.

  3. Have a wonderful weekend with your cousin!

  4. Your cousin's upcoming visit sounds PERFECT! I wish some of my cousins were close enough to come spend the weekend. Some of us are super close to eachother and I really miss seeing them. Treasure your time! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I'm sure you had a great time with your cousin.... Since I'm late at seeing this post! Got a new scanner/Printer! NICE! Hows that working out? Do you like it? Is it easy to use? And why is it when we go with someone to a casino they always end up winning and we leave with less money than what we came with? LOL
