With all the new technology regarding fertility... recently, a 70-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth.

When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.

"May I see the new baby?" I asked.

"Not yet," She said "I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first."

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, "May I see the new baby now?"

"No, not yet,'" She said.

After another few minutes had elapsed, I asked again, "May I see the baby now?"

"No, not yet," replied my friend.

Growing very impatient, I asked, "Well, when can I see the baby?"

"WHEN HE CRIES!" she yelled at me.

"WHEN HE CRIES?" I demanded. "Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?"

"BECAUSE... I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.?!!"

Hi Betsey,

I am enjoying the Christmas season & looking forward to Christmas itself. I hope you are also. :)

It was harder than usual for me to leave the Autumn season, however. That's because I fell in love with the beautiful Autumn leaves in my area this year. (Actually, it's still Autumn, but all of the trees here are now bare. We also had our first snowfall yesterday, so it sure doesn't seem like Autumn!)

For me, the 4 wallpapers I've just uploaded are transitional. One has Autumn colors, but 3 of the 4 are Christmas walls. I call them that because (a)they have a lot of red & green in them, and (b)2 of the 3 "red & greens" have Christmas tree shapes in them!:D

All 4 of these wallpapers were made with only "natural" ingredients... mainly, leaves. I collected the leaves I used for nearly 8 weeks! (I can just hear some of you saying, "So THAT'S what she does with her spare time... lol :)

May you have a lovely Christmas season, with many blessings to come! :D

Elaine :)

PS. If you'd like to know how I came to collect over 1,000 colorful leaves, I've written a journal post about it. Here's the link:

Dear Betsey,

Thank you for being one of my special blessings!

Elaine :)





CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   11/20/16 at 11:41pm

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope that you are doing well, and have many things to be thankful for. Desktop Nexus is a big one for me, and I bet it is for you also! :)

Another thing that I'm very thankful for is Autumn. The trees are so beautiful when their leaves turn... in my "neck of the woods" it is a wonderful feast for the eyes. Perfect for a color freak like me! :D

One thing that made this Autumn truly exciting for me is that I got to go to CANADA for one glorious day! I've been trying to get there for years! (I bet that all of you Canadians are either applauding, or are thinking that I'm just a little bit nuts... lol)

The three wallpapers below were all taken in Canada, 2 by me, and one by my husband. I've written a journal post about the day we were in Canada. I hope you'll have a look at it, if only to see that I'm not totally nuts...! Here is the link to it;

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal/how-i-fin...

I know that Canadians celebrated their Thanksgiving Day back in October. "U.S.A. Thanksgiving" is coming up this Thursday, November 24th. I hope to get by your profiles with Thanksgiving greetings... but things can get crazily busy at this time of year. So just in case I don't make it, I want to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving today. For those of you not from the USA, I hope that you have a blessed day also, and many more to come.

Thank you all, for being such a wonderful part of my life!:D

Hugs,

Elaine :)

What is a friend made of? Sticks and stones, blood and veins wrapped around living things. A thinking brain, a beating heart, kidneys that whizz, and lungs that breathe sweet air, oxygen, and moistened molecules. Smooth skin of various hues to hold our muscles onto our tendons and bones. This is what my friend is made of; with eyes that can see, ears to hear, a mouth to talk from, and eat apples, berries, and fish. I know this description sounds bad, but my friends are truly beautiful human beings.

Hi Everybody,

I hope you are doing well. :)

As I write this, I'm listening to lots of banging and crashing. It's been going on all day! At long last we are getting a badly needed new roof on our house. We've been saving up for it for 3 years. To my amazement, Katie our collie is taking all of the noise & pounding a lot better than I thought she would. Now if only I could get her resigned to traffic noises...

I'm looking forward to passing out candy to trick or treaters this Monday. But the best Halloween fun I've had so far this year is planning & designing these 2 wallpapers! I chased one of them down with my camera...and the other one took me waaaay more time to do than I ever dreamed it would. It was worth it, but...if I spent 30ish hours on every abstract I made, I'd go absolutely crazy! (Did I just hear a couple of smart alecs say that I'm totally crazy already? Rat's... the secret is out! :P)

Have a great weekend, and a super fun Halloween! :D

Elaine :)

Description: I took this photo at the beginning of May. I can't believe that May is almost over already! Where does the time go?

It's actually something I've wanted to do for years...photograph some tree leaves when they are first emerging. Every Spring it seemed like something would come up...too bus...
