M.E.N.S.A. and my new camera

So this week I feel like my Grandson is the smartest little guy in the entire world. But I do realize that's what all grandparents think. I'm ok with that. 

Anyway, when I suggested that it was almost time for picking up toys and brushing teeth before bed he looked me in the eye and calmly said "nana, don't tell me dat" then laughed. Then I laughed and because I laughed he laughed more. It was pretty funny. 

So I'm gonna call the Comedy Club and inform them that he's funny and to expect him in a few years, then I'm going to call some MENSA people and inform them that he's a freaking genius and they'll be lucky if he graces them with his amazing presence. 

Oh and Yay my T3i arrived last week. (I'll wait while you Google it and find out it's the latest Canon DSLR camera). 
I love it. 
Thank you wonderful husband!! It's the best late Christmas present EVER!

Good news.....I HAD a cold!

Seriously, I'm not used to being able to say that 2 weeks after I get a cold. My normal m.o. is to get the cold and then 3 MONTHS later say "I STILL have a damn cold", or "I've been coughing for 3 months". But I'm happy to report I kicked the hell outta this one! I still have an occasional coughing fit, but for the most part, I feel pretty good. Yay! Just in time for my hubbies birthday this month too.Whew

So, I guess my New Year's Resolution is to not get AS sick as I used to. I'm happy with that. I'd like to get back to crafting. I normally take a little vacation from it through Christmas, but it's February now and I'm starting to miss burning my finger tips off with hot glue and sweeping pieces of bark and leaves off my floor.

Here's one example of what I can do. None of my bird houses ever look the same, but I'm thinking I'd like to make another one of these. I gave my Mom and painted one for Christmas, but I want to make her a nature-themed one too. They are so much fun to make.

"MTC Designs" and "Mary T Clark Photography"....I'm on Facebook. :o]
