Prince Edward Island and Pressies

Hello Everyone, We wish you all a very Magical, Happy, and Healthy New Year.

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.

You don't look old enough to be turning 60! I always used to love Anne of green gables as a child. It will be so lovely for you to visit there.

Happy New Year to you, I have a feeling it will be a very happy one xx

You will love PEI. I go every year, usually to take grandkids on a little outing. It's only a couple of hours drive away for us. It truly is a unique place. The beaches, the red ground, the COWS Ice Cream. I hope you are going in the summertime. July or August is the best time. If you need to know anything about PEI, don't be afraid to ask.

Happy New Year Judy... wow, what a great Christmas for you and how fun to be able to have a trip like that to look forward to. Looks like you're having quite a snowy winter down there in the Lower. It's funny but I think I can always notice the lengthening of the days up here. Here's to an inspiring 2010 !

PEI is indeed a magical place. I live in the province next door- New Brunswick. If you want to see the lupins, you will have to plan to visit during the latter part of June. They bloom during the last half of June.
If you have any questions re PEI, I'd be happy to try to answer them for you. You can visit my Blog at

Hi, Judy: Take it from a "kindred spirit", you will love P.E.I.! I live just across the Strait in Nova Scotia, and go to the Island often. If you have time to fabric shop, The Quilt Gallery of P.E.I. in O'Leary (the opposite end of the Island from Charlottetown) is lovely. What a wonderful trip to look forward to in 2010!
