flip-flop & good mail


The weather is crazy lately. It seems the weather flip flops from one extreme to the other around here lately. I know this is typical for Texas, BUT seriously the girls wore shorts and flip flops to school yesterday on Halloween and the high temp was 86*! and this morning I had to find jeans for them to wear(they had both laid out shorts last night). I know to most of you, weather in the 60's, doesn't necessarily mean jeans, but for us Southern folk, today is a bit chilly. The high temperatures for the next few days are going to be in the mid 60's and drizzly. It doesn't sound fun especially since I'm not lovin' the way any of my jeans fit anymore.

Good mail to post-

My friend Anna sent me this cute scrapbook and craft stuff last week and I totally spaced posting it since I haven't been blogging much lately. Thanks Anna for thinking of me and I'm sure I will put this cute stuff to good use. Maybe this will encourage Jenny and I to have another craft day soon.

I had ordered this cute stuff from Doodle Bugs a few weeks ago and almost forgot about it. I was pleasantly surprised when it came in the mail last Saturday. Now I don't have any excuses for not sending out "thanks you's" and "just because notes".

Jill sent me a fun package yesterday with cute stcky notes, note cards, these cute "all girl" signs for cards or scrapbooking, an d a book called Take Time For Your Life. This book sounds like something I need to read. Thanks Jill for thinking about me and worrying about me not bloggin much. I hadn't been blogging much because I got a bit busy doing other things, and becuase I felt some days the things I would post were "no big deal" things and nobody ever really looked at it (at least not many people would comment). I know that sounds dumb and I know I'm doing the blog thing for a journal, but it is nice when you feel others gain from what you post. Any way I have treid to do better this week and want to thank you for noticing I was missing in action.

**How's your weather? Any fun good mail packages sent your way? Am I the only one anxiously awaiting my October Conference issue of the Ensign? Or did mine just get
lost in the mail?**

Fun good mail. I'll have to walk down and check it out. Weird weather is right! Whats up with shorts one day then jeans another?? I think we need some consistancy here in Texas.

Bridget said...

My Ensign must be lost in the mail as well. Why can't they ever get it right? :)
Don't you love the Doodlebug stuff?! I think it is so cute and all of my family will be getting stuff for Christmas in their stockings.

Angie, I'm a secret reader of your blog. I found it through my friend Lucy who has a link to Jenny's blog on her blog. I enjoy reading it so keep writing. I too am anxiously awaiting my Ensign.

Mackenzi, Maci and are such beautiful, sweet, wonderful girls...I miss you bunches and bunches. See you next weekend. Stay warm. Kiss Mommy and Daddy for us. Love you sooooooo much, Nana

Hey Angie, I linked to your blog from Jill's. What great mail!

Funny you should bring up weird weather. It has been crazy here-- It was in the mid 70's Tuesday and Wednesday, and today the high was in the low 40's. Both are very unusual extremes this time of year, and I can't say I am a fan (at least not of the cold weather).

I am still waiting for my Ensign as well, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Jill said...

I'm glad you got some good mail this week, that always helps things go smoother doesn't it? Those Doodle Bug cards are painfully cute!

I'm so glad we're not having 86 degree weather here, I NEED cool fall weather. I don't think I'm cut out for life in Texas.

I haven't gotten my Ensign yet either. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Love the good mail. Glad it's not 86 degrees here!!
