Shutterfly offers exclusive layouts and designs so you can make your book just the way you want.
I had a Groupon coupon for a free Shutterfly book and used it and some other discounts to get a $100 book for just over $50. I put all my nature photos from this year together with some of my favorite quotes and sent it in. Thursday, I checked the tracking status and Fedex stated that it had been delivered to my front porch. Out in the dark, flashlight in hand, I searched front and back unsuccessfully!
So on Friday, I contacted Fedex and the driver showed up today with book in hand! - He had left it on the front porch of my neighbor. (Who, like me, doesn't use the front door because we both park in the back!) So excited and love the book!

Let go of grudges.
Do something every day for someone else.
Speak your truth with kindness.
Don’t put all your emotional eggs in one relationship basket.
Know when to let people make their own mistakes and learn their own lessons.
Don’t expect perfection – from yourself or others.
Be a loyal friend.
Listen with your ears and your heart.
Let go of the need to be right.
Think about what you’d miss if they weren’t around – and appreciate it now.
Take responsibility for your own happiness.
Accept that you can’t change anyone but yourself.
Let yourself feel love how ever it’s expressed – whether with actions, what they say, or what they don’t say…
Don’t expect others to do what you should do for yourself.
Always be ready to offer a hug, a kind word, or a smile.
Reading: Your Family History (a genealogy magazine) Drinking: Dr. Pepper Weatherwise: It's cold outside and the snow is still on the ground!

1/5/2013 Blue Clouds over Donegal Lake I took a drive today- drove through Linn Run, around Donegal and Chestnut Ridge Parks, and then over to Jacob's Creek Park. There had been a black swan (likely an exotic that escaped from someone's pond) reported there earlier in the week. It was gone, or at least, I didn't see it. About all I did see was a Belted Kingfisher. I did see the two mute swans on Donegal Lake. It appears they have moved in for good! There was nothing on Chestnut Ridge (Acme Dam) Lake.
At my feeder today:Cardinals, blue jays, pine siskins, goldfinch, nuthatches, chickadees, grackles, sparrows, and mourning doves.
