Oh Karla, your trip album is fabulous! I think all of your drawings you did with your watercolor app add such a wonderful personal touch in addition to the photos, I just love it! You are going to have so much fun looking at that each year when you are freezing each winter! You can look at it and feel all warm and cozy. I had no idea it cost so much to heat a house, I am so sorry, that stinks.

Hi Karla..You are so talented and have such a cool album about Hawaii! The pictures are so bright and colorful! Hope the pictures can help keep you warm during the rest of the cold winter!! Just maybe Phil was wrong and it will warm up :):)


Delightful journal. I think I might work on typography in my Hawaii journal. Better get some more tags ready. As for the cold and scarce resources. Very scary!! Mother Nature is definitely the boss of me. I'm thinking of wearing my Uggs on the way to Kona since it will be cold coming and going to the airport.


i love how you did the drawings from the photos! We're getting blasted with 12 inches of snow today and I have the heat cranked down to 62 - brrr. We prepay oil in july and I don't want to have to buy any more.

Stay warm!

That dang groundhog! I was hoping for better news from him.

Leslie, it isnt usually as much to heat our house per month as it is for a mortgage payment, this is a shock. But I still have to consider myself lucky that there is enough gas for us and that we were in a position to pay for it. I know that not everyone has enough.


It's been AGES since I've stopped by.
Don't know why I've been waiting ,'cuz your blog always lifts my spirits

A good long trip sounds ideal as my mid-Missouri is preparing for MORE SNOW

Warmest of hugs to you, Karla



enjoy that album big time, Karla! It's a long, cold winter!
