For Annie O

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

I just finished a book for my friend Annie in San Diego, her birthday is Sunday and for once I might actually have a shot of getting someones gift to them on their actual birthday - or at least very close to it! I put a picture of her sweet dog, Mudslide on the cover with birthday wishes from her to her momma. I swiped the picture off her Facebook profile and printed it onto fabric. Most of us have grown to love her pets even though we only know them from what Annie posts online! 
I also got some more plants dug up from the old house and brought here today. I managed to get 5 hydrangeas, 3 sea thrift, 3 lenten roses and another phlox...and they've all been replanted. I'm beat, but I've also started an ATC of a closeup of a few of the domes of St. Basils in Moscow, hopefully I can finish that up tonight. 
This song had me dancing with the people in the video - it just couldn't be helped!
Groooovin'............at the Shores

I'm sure your friend will love her book! And I applaud your gardening!!

Love the song, saw Three Dog Night in concert back in my college days.

Yes, I'm old. ;)

Annie will love that, Andrea! I know that I have definitely grown to love Muddy as well as the rest of her menagerie. What a fabulous gift!!!
Thinking of you & only one more week until I start picking up paper goodies for you & me in luscious foreign places! :)

haha Rebecca - My taste in music never left the 70's for the most part I'm afraid.
Susan, I am so green with envy over your trip! I will miss you!

Hey, Andrea! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Always love meeting new people - especially fellow Buckeyes :o) I can see we have a lot in common, including that whole 70s music vibe. You'll have to check out my music blog, I think you'll like it. Hey...Roaming Shores....Rt 87 way? We go for rides out that way all the time - like gas is still 69 cents a gallon! ROFL. Stay in touch! Angelia
