It's A Good Day

I was just about to post about what a great day it was, I woke up and turned on the TV and saw Anderson Cooper, right there on Regis and Kelly, filling in for Regis. I do love me some Anderson! I recently read one of his books, "Dispatches from the Edge", and I highly recommend it. I also recently read "Still Me" by Christopher Reeve and it was a yarnfest about a self centered man and his priveledged upbringing. Those of you who know of Anderson know he had a priveledged upbringing as well, but he writes about it and understands it so much better than the late Mr. Reeve.

We were invited to my friend Steph's house last night. It was a lot of fun, and a big surprise as we rarely get invited out. And when we get invited out, Noah manages to complain or somehow manage to ruin the evening for us, so we rarely get out. Steph has a child Noah's age and they get along well, and that is the only way we got to have any fun last night. The kids all occcupied each other without whining for parental attention.

I made a Steph a little basket of goodies, since we were going to grill S'Mores on their fire pit. I used the Riley Moose Campfire stamp (from Hanna Stamps of course) for the image and added some decoration to a bucket I found on a clearance table. I also added Hanna's "Hey Girlfriend" stamp from the sentiment set. I really do love this moose! The camfire moose must be my favorite as I use it more than any other of the moose stamps, though I adore them all.

You can see from the top photo that she clearly enjoyed her little gift!

The news today is that the world's oldest blogger has died. Since he/she was apparently old I will have to say that the presence of children in his/her home had nothing to do with the death. My kids? Well, if one could truly be pecked to death by ducks, that's what the little rascals are doing to me on a daily basis this summer, sucking the life right out of me. I guess I can stop hoping that their grandparents will want them for a weekend or an overnighter. Looks like it's not gonna happen. No surprise there, that's for sure.

Sounds like a fun time out--with a little breathing room as well. Always nice, when the kids are occupied!

Maybe you could bribe the grandparents. Chocolate? Coffee? Anything they might desire?
