Thunderstorms & Rain

Woke up to thunder and rain this morning. Made me a little nervous since I had to get in the shower. I still have nightmares about being in the shower last year when the town decided to test the tornado alarms! Not to mention the day I moved here and thought I was going to drown. My friends get a great kick out of this story, me not so much!

I've had a busy couple of days. First David and I had to finish the Soprano's!
I now understand what all the uproar was about. I've had program issues at work which I hate. I am not happy at all about the fact that I am starting to understand the inner workings of computers and programs a little better. I do not want to understand all of that, it requires to much thinking! I want it all either to work, I can call support and they take care of it, or I can call DA and he takes care of it! Just as long as it's not me having to deal with it.

I managed to get back in my room last night and do some scrapping. DA was feeling inspired and I scrapped while he worked on one of his songs. Of course we didn't start all this until 10:30pm, so it was midnight when we got to bed. I did almost finish a tag swap that is due....ummmm.... tomorrow! I'm pretty sure I can get it finished at lunch but don't think it will be there by tomorrow. I am not springing for overnight postage.

I am in swap H-E-Double L! I've joined them just to be joining I think. Actually I believe I joined them because I was bored, having Spring Fever, Winter Blues, whatever you want to call it. Plus so many of them are due right now. Don't get me wrong, I love the swaps. Well some of them. The ones that don't really have anything to do with scrapbooking or that I can't use on LO's, think I'm going to stay away from those. At any rate, I should be getting a few of them back soon and will post pics here of all my goodies.

I did get my front flower beds planted on Saturday. Just waiting now for the plants to bush out a little. This is the part I wish I could just skip. The newly planted, gaps in the beds, waiting for it all to fill out. I did see something this year that I have never seen before and is making me think that Oklahoma may not be so bad after all. I had Gerber Daisies that I planted last year come back this year and have been blooming for a few weeks now. I've never had a Gerber Daisy survive the winter. Actually though, I'm not sure if I've ever planted them in the ground, think I just planted them in containers. Still, I didn't think they were annual plants. I'm excited about them returning this year though. Matt gave them to me last year and I'm a little sappy like that. I look at them and think of him.

Wishing you a peaceful day.

Those gerbers are coming back for me, the second year, think they love that snow, lets them sleep for awhile. Glad you will slowly decrease your swaps for awhile, so you can do some with me, real stuff, like lo for our own scrapbooks.
I still have about 4 seasons of NCIS to watch in order, so I understand it.
