They say it's Spring.
But I don't believe a word.
Look at these pics I took from inside (there's no way I'm going outside!)...

This is the pile of white stuff outside our deck:

and our back yard:

It is pretty though,
and so peaceful.
I much prefer this to the blazing hot sun...(I'll duck while you throw rotten tomatoes now ;) )

Story of a House

We just realised we havn't taken pics of the kids for ages.
Lately when we take the camera out, we're snapping shots of our new house.
We're so happy with the way it's turning out.
This pic is a few weeks old, because now the roof is up.

But I wanted to show you something.

See that window at the bottom right hand side?
That's where everyone will sleep, watch television, excercise, eat, read and everything else that families like to do.

See the rest of the house?

Scrapbooking Space.

Who's coming to play?

Circle Journals *Part 2*

Oy vey!
I'm like the dim-wit in my new CJ group.
The other girls are totally knocking the ball out the park with their themes, and I'm like...
"Ummmnnn...I think...Uh...well...I dunno...Maybe...well..what about...."

So, I need all my bloggity-blog friends to help me come up with a super-dee-duper Theme.
How about helpin' a sister out?

Give me a theme and I'll draw a name for a cool RAK.

I'm going to leave you with this glimpse into Summer, using this awsome line....Ahhhh!
Almost there now.
I can practically taste that watermelon.

A day without perfume is like a day without sunshine.

Gawd, I love perfumes...all scents, all tones, all makes (except the cheap ones...hee-hee).
I've been a perfume wearer from back in the day when I was in school. And in those days, we were not allowed to wear perfume to school. But I would risk whatever wrath was visited upon me by the powers that be, and sneak a small squirt on my pulse points.

See the picture up on top?
The Jean Paul Gaultier is my second bottle, given to me by my Mum, at her last visit here.
The Christian Dior "Dune" is like my millionth bottle. I've been wearing that from University, and wore it on my wedding day, complete with matching shower gel, body lotion, powder and al the essentials for proper "layering".
That zippy litle purple bottle *swoon* is "Alien" by Thierry Mueglar (he of the "Angel" fame), and it is scrummy!
Hubs bought me that last year...just because (what a guy!).

So, even though these days I smell more like throw-up, and sometimes worse, you'll still be able to catch the faint whiff of some delicious perfume.

What's your favourite scent?
Enable me :)
