Write It Down — February 3rd — Prepositions!

Oh, phew.

Today’s prompt from Shimelle was a lot easier than yesterday’s…

She had a mini English lesson (refresher course) about prepositions, and the prompt was to write short sentence fragments that all began with a preposition.


My plan is to wind up with a stack of these very simple pages that are 5 by 7 and then I’m going to also print out her journaling prompts and stick them all together in a notebook as a reference for future scrapbooking ideas — her instructions plus my responses should equal an awesome reference!

I’m also probably going to redo this particular layout into something bigger and fancier, with this picture of my nephew Colin as part of a larger project I’m working (i.e. to go with the other pages I’ve been creating in my Photoshop class…).  That is a horrendous sentence.  Sorry.  I should rewrite, but hopefully you were able to catch my drift….
Grandma loved her photo album, unfortunately she was not feeling well and didn’t go out for lunch with us.  She also spent a large part of the time we were there in the depths of a nasty coughing fit, I hope she can see a doctor this week and get checked out.  She was quite miserable.

Dog update:  Katie didn’t hate the new dog (she pretty much ignored her in fact…) so Mark and the boys took that as a good sign.  The three of them decided that they would, in fact, like to bring her home (I think the boys are quite excited about her — Katie pretty much ignores them, too).  The volunteers at the shelter got the paperwork started, but then had to take our new family member off for a final checkup.  Unfortunately they discovered that her temp was up  and they couldn’t release her to Mark.  We can call back tomorrow to see how she is doing.  She’s ours, but they won’t let her go until her temp is normal.  I’m a little bit worried about the elevated temp, but she had been just playing and running so, hopefully it’s not a big deal.

The boys are off watching the Super Bowl (they’ve piled into my bed so they can watch it in High-Def).  I’m going to eat some popcorn and do some computer stuff and some sewing, too, probably.

Thanks to everyone that visits, whether you comment or not.  I’d love to hear from more of you, but I know from my own experience that time is short.

Have a great evening!

    Glad you are able to get the new pup. Hope the fever thing is nothing and the new one comes home soon. The scrapbooking looks great. WHere do you find 1) the time and 2) the energy?? I am in awe! (and waiting for that decorated feather book…LOL) But I’m serious!

    A new doggie?!?! What kind of dog is it? Another spaniel? I hope the temp thing goes away quickly.

    LOVING the Colin scrapbook pages. How would his mom and dad get a hold of the finished product once you are done? 🙂
