Catnip Love..

That's what Dexter and Ollie have....I planted some catnip in the yard a few days ago. Then Jim and I were sitting outside on the bench a couple evenings ago when Dexter came running over to us...the catnip is close to the bench...and he caught a whiff of the stuff. Now you must know Dexter is a true catnip connoisseur. Once he caught a whiff of it he stopped dead in his tracks, nose in the air to track down the source. Once finding it he delighted in rubbing his face in the catnip, rolling around on top of was quite a sight!

Then Ollie caught a whiff! Ollie lives outside but he hadn't come across the catnip until Dexter pointed it out to him. So they are both now in kitty heaven with this stuff!!

Now Dexter has to guard his catnip to make sure no one steals it! *L*

So what's everyone up to today? Hope you are not out there sniffing catnip! Jim and I went for some more plants. I am starting an herb garden in one section of my yard and I had to get some cat grass to go along with the catnip, and I got some more flowers. Jim got stuff to start building the antenna for his ham radio and some stuff to make his own flag pole, becasue he found a really nice flag at Costco yesterday for under $20 and he wants to have it all done so he can hang it out for Memorial Day.
I am going to take a nap and maybe work in the yard this evening or scrap...we will see how it goes. :)

Out of it....

I am so lame..I have just not had the get up and go to do my blog..or scrap or much of anything lately. Maybe it is just because I am getting back into the swing of things with work since the dr released me, and working in the yard...what I can do anyway, because I still can't get down on my knees like I would like to. Hopefully that will come back because I really need to get down on my knees to do my yard work the way I want to. Plus I am taking Ham radio classes and up until this chapter it has really fried my brain with the electronics and all the symbols and abbreviations for soooooo many things. But I want to get through this so I can take my test next month and get my license. Then I can forget all the formulas and such *L* Hey, it has only been 35 years since I took algebra..and while I was a straight A student back in those days, this old brain hasn't used those formulas for a long, long time!

I have actually scrapped...a little though! I went to a crop last week and got 3 pages done! I still need to scan them...and as usual I have a million ideas floating around in my head for more pages. I just need more hours in the day, and to be honest, my creative juices flow better at night, so I should just lock myself in my room some night and scrap, huh?

I'm not terribly happy with the way the pics of the LO's turned out, so I may jsut scan them tomorrow.

Another reason I have put off posting is because we went to the fair several days ago, and I still need to get my pics uploaded. But I was waiting for a guy to send me a pic from the Doo Wah Riders concert, so I could post it here. *L* I still haven't gotten it!! I am so bummed! During the concert, the lead singer gets down off the stage and walks around the audience and always goes up to one lady and sings to her for a little while. Well, the night we went...I was the lucky lady!!! *swoon* And the couple in front of us...well the guy took a pic of the lead singer sitting on my lap, singing to me, so I gave the couple my email address and asked if they would email me the pic and they said they would.......yeah, like I said...I am still waiting! I was so gonna scrap that! *L*
Here are a few of the pics I took at the concert....Jim and I love these guys!!

So until I get my pics uploaded and my pages scanned, here is a little Blog Candy for you Scrappin Out Loud. Check it out!!!! She has some awesome stuff there!! Lots of videos and I can't wait to go check out the link she has posted for the frayed flowers!
