Good morning, Jaycee. Thank you.

These songs by Susan Boyle are wonderful.
I'm sure we will be posting at least one more.

I am so happy to read that her CD is doing so well.
She deserves her success.

Have a lovely Thursday.

Good morning, Yorkie. (I think it's still morning.) LOL

That coffee looks and smells sooo good.
I need to take a break and have a cuppa.

Hope you are having a lovely day.
We had fog again but wasn't bad enough to delay school.

I'm not looking forward to cold weather.

You slept 10 hours last night? Well, Polly - you must have NEEDED it....and I am so glad you were able to rest so soundly! (And, I’m pouring you a second cup right now. (with Hazelnut flavored Coffee Mate.) :)

Oh, ulcerative colitis can be such a nasty thing! Poor Chachi! My little Lindy had it a few years back, and the vet told me that even one ‘drop’ of food that was not in her prescribed food could cause it to flare up again. Since that day - she hasn’t had one crumb of anything but her prescription diet. (The look in her eyes, when I fix bacon, is enough to make me run for the kleenex.)

What a beautiful bird and surroundings! You have had some sure cute ones posted lately. I was hoping to answer some pings when I came back from my hair appt. but I have been sick to my stomach and just don’t feel well. So, guess I will lay down and rest a while. I felt sick while she was doing my hair and still feel queasy!

See you when I can!

Thank you for all of the nice compliments this morning.
You found the image of that little Rich Girl.
She is so sweet.

Thank you again for today's Opener.
I'm really enjoying featuring Susan Boyle.
She has such a beautiful voice.

A cousin called last night; it was nice to talk to him.
He is from Matador, TX.
He said they were getting snow last night.
Did you get snow also?
Our weather has been COLD.
We may get some rain this weekend.

Hope you are having a Terrific Thursday.

We have a deal since we each have our ‘specialities’ we are better at - hers is decorating the tree, and mine is decorating the house. I do the tables, chests, piano tops, fireplace mantles, chandeliers, dining chair swags, garlands, etc while she does the tree. I always get mine out and set it up and fluff it, but that’s where I quit - the rest is ‘her job’ because she’s the pro and it shows. :)

Thanks, Jaycee.

I spent some time working on new graphics yesterday. Then I wonder why I don’t have time to vacuum! LOL

Hope you feel better after resting for awhile. See you when you feel much better.

Hugs.

I look out my window,
a new day I see,
and only I can determine
what kind of a day it will be.
watch as this picture changes

It can be busy and sunny,
laughing and gay,
or boring and cold,
unhappy and grey.

My own state of mind
is the determining key,
for I am only the person
I let myself be.

I can be thoughtful,
and do what I can to help,
or I can be selfish
and think just of myself.

I can enjoy what I do
and make it seem fun,
or gripe and complain
and make it hard on someone.

I can be patient with those
who may not understand,
or belittle and hurt them
as much as I can.

But I have faith in myself,
and believe what I say,
and I personally intend
to make the best of Today.

Thanks, Lori. Yes, she does sing this sweetly - I can't remember who originally recorded it - the Beatles? Could have done some research, but I enjoyed Susan's version much better, whoever sang it first.:)

Did you listen to the one Amy posted to open this month's thread? It's my favorite on the album, and I probably won't be deleting that song from my server for a very, very long time.

I read that Chachi has been sick again. :( Poor little tyke - hope he's getting better every day.

Those are pretty little tea and coffee pots! With this cold weather, I’ve been enjoying something hot to drink in the afternoons this week. Either hot cider (at home) or a latte from Starbucks.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - and stay tuned for more Ms Boyle.

I hope her album continues to sell, sell, sell. :)

This brightly-colored bird graphic compliments your brightly-colored, cheery "Top of the Morning" graphic, jaycee!

All your new graphics have not gone unnoticed, Amy! Isn't it WAY more fun to play in PSP than to vacuum. YUK! :)

Thank you, Amy. :)

And thanks also for all the time you put in to make sure that Amy's Place one of the prettiest and nicest places to visit. I do think you know how much all of us appreciate the care you take to make every one here feel the warm hospitality that is Amy's Place.

Just feel like sayin' that every once in a while. :)

We haven't had snow, but the temperature has been freezing, and below, with very little moisture and enough wind to 'hurt' your face when you go out for long. It takes a while for me to get ready to take the dogs for a walk! Being inside dogs with short hair, they have to wear coats, and for me: leg warmers over my jeans, warm gloves, my husband's parka (because it goes to my knees and has a warm hood) - nothing but my face is exposed! I'd wear a ski mask but I hate them and besides it would scare my dogs! LOL

Lori, I hated to hear Chachi was sick again. Has she been on that strict diet the doctor ordered? (I was glad to hear that she was doing a bit better.)

I’m doing okay...just always lots to do and wish I had a bit more energy! It comes and goes. I get so much on my mind at Christmas, I feel fuzzy headed! I hope others know this feeling. LOL!
