Look Well To This Day

“Look well to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.

In it lies all the realities and verities of existence: the bliss of growth, the glory of action, splendor of beauty.

For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision.

But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day, for it and it alone is life!

Such is the salutation of the dawn.”

Are You Down With a Bug?

* This blog post was to come out about 2 months ago when I was tangling with
a bad case of laryngitis!  It is now April 24th...Easter! *  Better late than never?!?

I may sound like I am down with a bug, however I just have had laryngitis for
over a week now. I am much now better that I was, but just can't seem to kick this
to the curb yet.  There has been no sore throat, fever, runny nose, cold,
sinus issue...just laryngitis! My hubby at first told me to just hush, because
he just couldn't understand me as I tried to
talk...now he just laughs at me!

Although I don't need a get well wish, I made this card for those I just might need to send one to.

Elizabeth Dulemba (a children's author/ illustrator) has a coloring page everyweek on her blog. She has them for one and all to copy and color.  Check them out at Elizabeth Dulemba . Fill in your information and here comes the coloring pages for you or your children to color.  Have fun!

Hope the yucky flu bugs don't come your way!

Until next time, Debbie (Deebi27)

Happy Birthday to a Very Special Lady!

My former Mother in law Irma, is celebrating her 96th birthday today and what a special lady she has always been. It didn’t matter that I felt I need a major change in my life; she was there to support me with open arms. As it is Easter and her birthday, I will have my daughter deliver my card to Irma along with a BIG hug and kiss from me!

I was going through my emails and clicked on Beate Johns' Fresh and Fun blog yesterday "Fragment Faux Tiles".  Wow, I really wanted to make it for Irma, but I was missing the Squares & Rectangles Fragments from Tim Holtz.  In all my stash of goodies, I can't believe what I needed.  I had all the fragments pieces from Tim Holtz, except the one I really needed for Irma's card.  So, I gathered up some other this and that and this is what I created for my sweet ex Mother in law!

I hope she knows how much I think of her!
Happy Birthday Irma!!!

Until next time!
