It doesn't take much...



I am very excited about my new printer & my new Cricut (r) (a die cutting machine used for scrapbooking). First, my new printer: a few days ago the old one just stopped working properly. It wasn't pulling the paper through the rollers (at least, that's my expert opinion -haha). It would maybe print a half a page. I fiddled with it a bit but figured it had lived a good life. I got it a few years ago and it was one of those $40 deals. Now I have a beautiful new printer that copies & scans; I had been making copies on my fax machine & I have never scanned. It also has a little place for the card from my camera & will print photos right there. Don't you just love technology?


I also have a new Cricut(r) courtesy of my wonderful husband. He suggested it for Valentine's Day & I got it early. I have used it a bit and just love it! It will make scrapbooking so easy and really fun. It makes me want to go back and re-do pages I have already done (like I have time for that!) Now, I know what you are thinking - how romantic. Actually it is because he was listening to me talk about scrapbooking and this machine so when he saw it he knew I would like it. I like flowers as much as the next person but I am really practical, too.
We are having a Super Bowl party tomorrow so I will probably spend most of the day getting ready. We were to have a crowd but people are dropping out - sick kids (common this time of year), husbands working, remodeling projects. I hope that a few still show up! I am not totally upset that we won't have tons of kids. I started thinking that my idea of keeping them corralled in my daughter's play room might not work since there would be so many. Now it should be much more manageable. I am so looking forward to all that party, snacky food & I will try to control myself! A friend is bringing a big pot of chili & she makes great chili. Yum!!
I am off now to take a shower and get ready for the day. We are going out for breakfast & I will pick up the rest of the groceries I need for tomorrow. We will also stop by this great farmstand in town for our veggies and fruits. It is such a fun thing to do and the produce is super fresh. My daughter is also excited since there is a little park near the farm stand so we will make a detour there. Happy day...

I also love a good practical gift. My all time favorite gift from the hubby was a stand mixer. Gotta love a guy who listens :0)
