Still on Cloud Nine

Well I'm still floating up there, trying to get over finally having my own store.

I don't have much to say today. It's the end of my 4 day long weekend and back to work tomorrow. For the first time in many years I stayed home and just chilled. I needed this relax and will go back to work revitalized.

I nearly drowned my sorrows on Saturday night. My team The Sharks lost to the team that's at the bottom of the log in the Super 14. I still can't believe that The Cheetahs won, but we're still at the top of the log. And last night I stayed up for the first motogp race of the year. It's a night race in Qatar at the beautiful Losail circuit in the middle of the desert. They have to race at night because it's just too hot during the day. And would you believe it, the race got rained out. A tropical storm that could not be believed. The race has been postponed to tonight and I just hope I can keep my peepers open for that. And in this I support an Australian - Kasey Stoner!!!! So in case I miss the race and have to wait for the result, I wish him and the rest of the field a safe race, but Kasey, go and grab the first win of the season.

I also got some beautiful photos of wolves and huskies taken at the Husky Romi Wolf Sanctuary in the Eastern Free State in a little town called Reitz. Corné and I will definitely be taking a trip there in the Spring. Unfortunately the Free State only has 2 kinds of weather - very cold or very hot and I just cannot do cold. I love wolves and find it such a pity that people have to take them out of their natural habitat to make pets out of them and then later abandon them because they're not ideal pets. Larry and Thea are in the process of starting a new website with the details of their extended property and the wolves and huskies now have far better facilities. I wish them every success in their endeavour.

Jazzy had a CT call a while ago and I just had to muscle my way into that team. Thank you Jazzy for letting me on board. Jazzy makes it very easy for me to ad some "journalling" to my LO's because she just has this gift of always coming up with just the right phrases for her WA. And she has 3 new sets of WA in the store - He Is Risen (if you swing by her blog you'll see a LO that I made) - Just Baseball and Graduation Day. I have yet to make some LO's with the last 2, but baseball is not a sport that is really played in South Africa and our Graduation is also totally different to that of the USA.

Remember my new items are only on sale for one week and then they go to regular price. Livia has made this devine fairy element, using my Doodled Fairies and she will be giving it away on her blog a bit later tonight. She is also having a public holiday and told me that it was outdoors weather, so please be patient until she can get to her pc to blog. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous? And please keep your eyes peeled during the week for more freebies created with my doodles.

I have also decided to leave my last 2 freebie links up for another 24 hours, for those that didn't get to do any freebie searches over the Easter weekend, but I will unfortunately have to take the links down tomorrow evening. Have a great day.

Sily me - I missed your Easter bunny doodles - too bad - but maybe you'll add them to the store as they are adorable! Sorry about the loss of your friend. I hope you have a good week!
