I have been ecstatic about the most glorious news for the last several months because my sweetie has granted me a life long wish to go and visit the home of "Anne of Green Gable on PEI". Why this coming year because I will be turning 60 yrs old. I can hardly believe that number. I remember clearly saying I would never turn 40 and now I am soon to be sixty. My sweetie has made the last 5 years of my life so magical. So I should not be surprised that this dreams will soon come true. I order the above free DVD from the island tourist department and it arrived a few days ago. When we played it for the first time tears came to my eyes it made me feel so happy inside. It is only 11 minute long but I quickly understood the "The Island Effect" and I am still humming to the moving music. Isn't the photos of those Lupins just glorious. I can hardly wait to see and smell those lovely blooms.
My Sweetie "Knocked My Socks" off when I open my Christmas pressie. Yup, I got a new HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook. It has so many things on it I will be learning how to use this computer for ages and ages. This is my first blog posting with it. When I downloaded these photo it took only a second. My Dell ( which served me well for 7 years) would take forever. VBG It is wireless but I much prefer my "Mouse"!! lol
Below are some gifts I received from my lovely neighbor in Germany. Ulla and her family was so kind and wonderful to me while I was living there. They plan to come and visit us for the second time again in 2011 which we are really looking forward too.
I also received these lovely gifts from a dear friend in Australia and the very artistic ATC came from my dear friend in the UK. I Thank You all for these lovely gifts.
I have order Lucy M. Montgomery Journal 1 because another Anne's fan suggested I do. It has been order and I really look forward to reading it. We will be driving to PEI so I plan to explore every inch of PEI. Most important I want to visit all those special places Anne made so famous. I hope to chat with the people of "The Gentle Island" and share the excitement of their Island with them. If any of my readers have been to PEI or live on PEI I would love to chat with you. Thanks.
