I was offered a free night, meals and Christmas show at the Niagara casino. Later today my friend and I made our way to the falls. No pictures were allowed at the show but I loved it.
This is the view from our room when we arrived. I loved the room and the view.
This a picture of the view around 10:30 pm when we came back to the room to change and go to the casino.
I'm still on a creative dry spell and it's starting to really bother me. Sorting papers didn't help so today I spent some time looking over some of my scrapbooking supplies. I love this corner punch and hoped it would maybe spark the creative gene. It didn't but I still love this punch.
If I had known sorting a pile of papers was going to lead to 3 days of work I never would have started it. Today I had to pull all these magazines off the shelf so my newly organized papers can go on it (the only shelf high enough). Well that means I have to look through them all and send the ones I don't want to the Goodwill. That's all fine and dandy but I haven't opened these in years so another day was gone while I perused magazines. It was revealing to me that my taste in scrapbooking had changed so much.
After sorting through my Basic Grey paper yesterday I decided to sort all my papers. Well let me tell you, that was some job. It took me most of the day. David finally dragged me away to enjoy at least a bit of this beautiful day outside. Here they are all sorted (whew). It doesn't include Special papers, Disney, Halloween, or Glitter. Bev gave me the large holders and I love them. I'm going to have to get about 10 more. Tomorrow I will have to figure out where to put them as the holders don't fit on the shelves they were on.(Grrr, I hate it when the picture goes in wrong).
I love Basic Grey papers or I used to. I would buy them up and then put them away because they were so pretty. Well today I decided to sort them out and start using them. I had no idea I had that many and I don't even like some of them anymore. From now on I'm using these babies up.
We are having beautiful weather and it makes me lazy. I love taking photos but sometimes have to really push my self to blog them. I was wandering around enjoying the weather when I found this on a very old snowmobile parked out back.
Today is the day to remember all our veterans. I am so thankful to all the brave men and women who faught, and continue to fight, for our freedom. We must all remember that our freedoms came at a very high price. I try to remember this all year but especially today, I give thanks for all the veterans past and present. They are in my prayers.
David called to tell me there was an eagle in the tree at the top of the hill. I took a few pictures of him in the tree and then he took off. Imagine my surprise when he landed and their was another one sitting there.
We don't have that many eagles around here so this was a thrilling sight for me.
Clicking on the pictures brings them up larger for a bette view.
Today I went to the Royal Winter Fair. Prince Charles and Camille were at the opening ceremonies and then they walked through the fair. Before they came on a group called the Canadian Cowgirls performed on their horses. They were great. Of course the picture had to be a Royal one since that doesn't happen everyday.
When I was at BevB's we ( Bev actually) made veggie pizza to take to the swarm. It was so delicious. Today was my day to cook for the hunters and so for a change I included this pizza. Wasn't sure the guys would like it but they gobbled it right up (whew!).
I am still not feeling well and have no creativity left in me. I tried to make a card today but couldn't come up with one idea. Maybe I need to take a break and not even think about anything creative for awhile. David bought this for me to cheer me up. It takes real money up to 25 cents and when you win the bells ring and the money (I put in) drops down.It's fun.
