Valentine's Day

To my love, I give a token, to show how much I care.
To my love, I give my heart and all my soul to bare.
To my love, I am just hoping your love you’ll want to share.

 With Valentines Day coming up rather fast you can’t help wonder what to get that special someone. With talk of health and diets, it might not be so wise to offer that box of chocolate. Hmmm….I’ll will never turn away a box of chocolate, I am reading that chocolate is good for you, and we all want what is good for us.

I feel a bit guilty because it seems females do much better on this holiday then the men do, okay I don’t feel that bad. I will admit I always loves those red paper hearts surrounded by that white paper lace that we made when we where kids. Those school projects might account for my craft hobbies.

I love crafting and will try most things, some of my favorites are jewelry making along with scrap booking and I make my own embellishments. I am always amazed to see what talents are out there taking place in someone’s kitchen. The human imagination is endless when it is set free.

It is said that there is no greater gift in life then love…I disagree I think it might be compassion.

On A Cold Winter Day

On a cold winter day I went with my sister to visit the town dock. It was freezing out but I had my camera and ready to take pictures. I had never really used this camera before, my son gave it to me and unfortunately he didn’t know where the instructions were on how the camera works.

I love to take pictures and always carry a Kodak digital that fits nicely into
my purse and the only thing you have to do is press a button and the picture is taken. This camera was a new experience with more things to use to focus with and with finger tips freezing I stood on the windy dock taking pictures.

My sister was a good sport and stood out in the freezing wind with me, until she gave me that look, you know the one, where she knows you’re crazy and now she doubts

her own sanity. Anyway we both got back in the car and
looked at the camera to see if we could see how the pics came out but because it is an older digital the screen isn’t too big. I decided the only way to tell how the pictures come out was to wait till I got home.

Well I have to say I love the pictures.
