September scrapping

I'm so glad I have been in the mood to scrap! I got to crop with my scrapping buddies last weekend and got a few more pages crossed of my list.

I took Penny to the park where we met up with Randi & Rocky and got some cute pictures.

The last days of Pine Valley

I've been a sobbing fool this week watching the last episodes of All My Children. Although I haven't watched regularly in the last few years, I was sad to hear the show and my other favorite soap One Live to Live and being canceled.

I used to make fun of soaps, when my sister and my old roommate used to watch. But soon, I was the one updating them on who Erica Kane was married to lately. I've been watching on and off since 1994. I've been through a lot with this show.

I added AMC to my DVR schedule when the guest stars started coming back - Josh Duhamel, Carol Burnette, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eva La Rue - along with the return of some old regulars - like Dixie, Zack, Adam, Brooke, Jamie, Babe, Joe & Ruth.

And I am totally caught up in the unbelievable ability of Dr. David Hayward to bring people back to life. It's so perfectly soapy and convenient!  I was cheering out loud when they revealed who his latest patient was. I really hope they all get happy endings, especially David and one of my other favorite troubled characters, JR Chandler. I hear the shows will be continuing online, but I don't think it will be the same, especially since Susan Lucci hasn't agreed to appear.

So after the last episode tomorrow, I guess I'll switch over to Llanview and see what trouble Todd Manning is up to.

Does it have to end?

Summer is usually not my favorite season, but this year I made an effort to really have fun and enjoy it. I didn't go to the beach, but I did spend a lot of time in the city and having fun with my family and friends. I feel a little sad that it's coming to an end.

I was hanging out in the yard yesterday and here's what a I saw.

These flowers make me so happy!
