News from Southern California

This past week it snowed at home (Pennsylvania). Meanwhile, here in Southern California it's up in the 80's. We had one cold day last week and I knew it was too good to be true that we were into fall. Sure wish I lived back east still, but those days are gone. Why is it that when we have something we take it for granted? Like for instance, back east when I was growing up we had parades for everything and every occasion. The fire stations were always throwing some sort of parties or celebrations. There were carnivals and fairs all during summer and alot of them cost very little or were free to get into. Ahhh those were the days. I'm sure it's alot different (free entrance), but I bet there's still carnivals and parades like there used to be.

You don't hear of many parades here..well except for the big Rose Bowl parade every year..that's about it. Everyone is in a hurry, going someplace and if there is an event or carnival, you'd be lucky to be able to pay the entrance fee.
Guess that just goes along with living in a state where Hollywood is.

I got a big surprise yesterday from my son. We have an addition to our family of dogs. My brand new 3 month old granddoggy, Precious. A wee little chihuahua. Here we are

and another one..I still have that granny touch
Awww isn't she too cute? I can't believe my Molly used to be that little

Welcome Fall

I think it might really be here! Fall that is. I had to leave early this morning to have a medical procedure and it was 40 something degrees out. BRR that's cold for someone who lives in the high desert-Victorville area. Of course, as usual, it's warmed up and beautiful outside now. Thank God for the Sun :-)

I am a badddd blogger. I LOVE to read other's blogs, but when it comes to mine, I just can't seem to find time to work it. Any tips? Just pass them along cuz Lord knows I need them.

I have a brand new pattern for 2009 holiday season, however, she could be left out all year because Lord knows too that we need PEACE! She's Peace Angel~made her debut in Create and Decorate's current magazine ad. If you'd like to purchase her, just zip me an email or visit my website at She is $12.ppd. I accept Paypal, checks or money orders. Isn't she gorgeous?

Been taking 2 computer classes online from our local community college. Was doing good till this week HA can't figure the darn form out to save my soul. I really prefer the classroom verses this. Mainly because you have no one to ask questions from. Also the computer grades one of my classes and it always happens that I put the right answer in, just not in the same words as the correct one the computer knows and I get that big old red X. I hate those!!

We have alot of new stuff going on in the coming months on TDIPT sure you check it out HEREThere will be giveaways! yayyy everyone like giveaways!!

Be sure to check out my Etsy because I will be listing some new items on there soon. Hope yall enjoy the cooler weather :-)
Cheers, Sharon
