CSI and more Gossmer Blue

 Only had three short days off but enjoyed them.  Thursday chilled with Charlie, Friday met a friend for lunch - went out to our old stomping ground and got my hair cut and then met another friend for a margarita!  Then today we took Jason and Maria to the outlet mall and blew a little.  Needed new running shoes but of course found several other things as well!  Came back through Gruene for a late lunch and home.  Now to get ready to head for work again tomorrow - at least it's only two days this week.

First up is my layout for this weeks case file over at CSI! I don't know why but I loved the colors even though they are not just your easiest to put together.  This is little Gavin at the park being a silly monkey!
Next is another page I did with my last kit from Gossamer  - Gavin with his new hair cut.

Thanks for stopping by!

CSI and September Gossamer Blue

Have settled in and are learning how to live in a city again - major adjustments!  Starting with the grocery store - this one is huge - parking lot FULL and we are so used to our not little but same HEB for the last 15 years it's been hard to adjust!  I forget a little less every week.  The drive to work - awesome -from an hour plus to less than twenty minutes!  My scraproom - well I took this BIG long room as mine for just this reason.  Never have had this much room to just spread out and not be cramped at all!  Really want to take this with me.  Downside is that I took one of the three upstairs bedrooms and let hubby (yes we don't sleep together - after 35+ years we both sleep better alone!) have the master downstairs.  Well needless to say I'm BURNING UP and he's down there freezing.  I'm the one who had my own personal thermostat in my old house that I cranked down to COLD every night  - hoping with cooler weather this improves!  He doesn't want to buy a window unit for what he thinks is less than another month of hot.
Good note - back to doing interval running and for some reason it's easier to run here - don't ask me why but I've done more running than walking during my hour out.  AND this week I'm not dying like I was last week!
LOVED the Case File this week at CSI - inspired me to make this page of my son's adventure to San Luis, Mexico to visit his fiance's parents home and explore the country there.  To say they had a fabulous time would be a total understatement.  The photos are amazing and I can't wait to go this next summer for the wedding and to spend a little time exploring ourselves!

Next up is some pages from my Gossamer Blue kit which I only got this week because it got lost - well not lost - delayed- having to go through the change of address bit so I got it late.
First up Gavin with Charlie last spring on a day we got to help Brandy keep him down in Galveston - had a ball!

Next a page of Jason and Maria from a Spain Soccer game they attended.

Finally a photo of Jason and Maria and her Mom was just visited from San Luis, Mx a week or so ago.
Thanks for stopping by - have a LONG week!  Working Sun/Mon/Wed so will be dead tired!

 It has been a long and very stressful two weeks but we are finally settled into a house here in San Antonio which will be our temporary residence until we find a place up in Lake Granbury and have closed on our house.  It was horrible!  We are just too old to be doing all this by ourselves.  Wednesday last two truck show up at 9 am and finally unload the last of everything at the new place around 7 pm.  Unfortunately we got tired and didn't realize that they had just unloaded all the heavy boxes that needed to go upstairs in the garage!  Then Thursday we head out to the house to clean and get the cats.  Get there and there's no water - city has it off for some reason.  So we clean until around 12 - head back to catch the dish man here.  Thats with a full truck load yet again (after 5-10 already) and with an entire storage room full before we even started!  Then head back out - full load yet again - finally water and house is clean with an amazing amount of work even though I thought I was living in a clean house!  Just move out to realize you aren't!  Cats NONE too happy to join us !  Poor Tess has never lived anywhere else and didn't come out from behind the TV until my son came over and finally heard her squeek!  BUT on a good note both seem to be happy to stay inside here which I'm glad of - don't want to find them run over so hoping to make them house cats until we get to where we are going.
Here to share with you my page for CSI this week.  Used lots of Core'dinations on this - started with a black base which I sanded down to show through the core - then I stamped.  Also added some Core Impressions in Basic Grey to show some texture.  Love love love Em's sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
