...well, it's the start of a Holiday week-end...

...and our weather-news-reporter-person said...

..... "Because of high gas prices and many of you not being able to "go" away for a vacation, we thought we'd bring Seattle to you...we'll have gray skies and rain all week-end..."


Ah, yes, ha. ha. ha. sigh....


It's a good thing I like gray skies and rain..


I want to try some of those breakfast bars that Karin @ http://madrekarin.blogspot.com/ made - Yum-Oh-My!


A rainy Saturday seems perfect. I'll need to get up early to make them so I can hit a couple more Estate sales! Be still my heart.....


So today I made a paper-bag book like the ones featured in a craft book I have...

This is the front of the book - it is just lunch bags turned every-other way so some have openings to put stuff in - oh, like post cards or things...




This is the next page...



This page has the little book ( you can see the crease where it opens) to about 4 little pages to write stuff in...or is it on...



This one show a photo peeking out of the opened side of this page...




.....And so it goes, on a Friday night on Main Street, USA...

Good-night & sleep tight......Does anyone else remember being "tucked-in"? I do! My Mother did and I remember feeling not claustrophobic, but safe...huh...that stuff really works..
