Bloomin' in the Bubble

It's back to VERY cold temperatures and more snow so I thought I would try for some Spring-y thoughts. To be honest I really don't even mind that it is cold and snowing - It's the WEEKEND!!!!! Hello fuzzy socks. Hello ratty-never-wear-in-public sweater. Hey hey Jammie pants! Go get Mug-O-Joe and I'll meet you all in the BUBBLE!

Gail, one of my editor/proof reader sisters, is without a computer this weekend. Let's hope eagle eye sister Judy is online SOON. I am nervously and reluctantly going to hit the "publish post" button...without my double safety net. I apologize for any goofs, typos, and grammar gaffes in advance. They ALWAYS find some error in my compositions...don't 'cha just love sisters? Well...some of them...half of them...most of them...some of the time...most of the time...some of them some of the time...half of them most of the time...??? As they say...SOMEONE has to put the FUN in dysfunctional!

Have an AWESOME weekend!
