I am feeling Lucky today

I feel happy today, I actually haven’t felt this happy is a long time. It must be because the wind was howling, the autumn leaves were blowing, the temperature was cool, sweater weather. I like summer, but I love fall. I like cozy things, the fireplace going, (gas) on a cool windy day. A cup of hot chocolate, music playing, and me lazing around reading a book. This weather always makes me want to make soup, so tomorrow it is homemade beef vegetable noodle soup and homemade buns would you like to come over for dinner. Now this is why I like being retired, doing things that I like to do when I want to do them. Some housework was accomplished today, all that needed to be done.

Another reason today was a happy day, it was a great mail day. I received my 7 art things from my "Lucky Lady" Melody from Oregon. She was way to generous to me. As you can see from the photos. Portfolio oil pastels, (24 of them). I have looked every where in my city for these, and nobody carries them, imagine my excitement when I received these its like getting a diamond ring to me that is how exciting it is. I received these little card holders that display your ATC's I am going to find out where she gets them. They are great to have. I also go some really beautiful paper and some Latruder paper. I have never used that but am going to give it a try. Now I am off to create something with my portfolio oil pastels you will see them later. That’s all for now talk to you soon.
