Lovely Lyn to the Rescue

Today did not start out to be the best of days. DD informed me just before it was time to go to school that she needed a picture of her with her pet. Nice---not. I am not a picture taker, in fact prior to blogging I seldom if ever used my camera. So I needed to take a picture to make this happen. Now our beloved dog, Belle, is old. She turned 13 this past September. She is slow and cold mornings do not help this. So trying to get her to come get her picture taken was not easy. She wanted to stay on the carpet down in the basement not come up on the tile where there was light for the picture. We barely got the picture taken in time to go to school.
It was late start today for A and J. For some reason A has a harder time being ready on time when it is a late start than when he has to be there early. So he missed his ride and I had to take him to school. GRRRRR!
I came home and my day turned around. Lyn informed me that she had awarded me this lovely award. Thanks Lynn. Very nice of you. I'm to award this to 5 other bloggers. Not an easy task. You are all so creative. So I will award it to all my faithful followers. I know this is more than 5 but I want to thanks for supporting me. I enjoy your comments and visiting your blogs.

Not only did Lyn award me this lovely award this package arrived from her today. Boy when Lyn saves the day she saves it BIG!

Wrapped in this pretty paper was this; scissors, pincushion, and patterns

Pretty green fabric, my favorite color and chop sticks

All very beautiful Thanks Lyn
