Tuesday Treat - May 24, 2022

 Another short post.  Thank you all for your concern and sweet, caring posts.  I did go see our family doctor and it is just going to take time.  My ankle looks terrible (and hurts so) because the blood is draining down.  I still have large, very sore black and blue hematomas but he said that will take time.  I really am grateful because it could have been so much worse.  Ah, the golden years.

Here are your treats for today!

 Just a short post today and I am really not feeling well.  I hardly slept last night. I am still very sore and my right foot is so swollen!

Here is your treat for today.  ENJOY!

Tuesday Treat - May 10, 2022

 It's been a bad week.  I had a bad fall last Wednesday.  I tripped over the kitchen rug that had been folded up so we could wash the kitchen floor.  I knew it was there.  I walked around it a dozen times.  But, when I finished lunch, I turned around to put my dish in the sink and flew over the rug.  I landed on my knees and then flipped over (don't ask me how) and smacked my head on the floor and landed on my back.  I couldn't get up and I didn't want my hubby to break his back again trying to pick me up, so we called 911.  The rescue squad came and helped me up and then told me since I was on blood thinners, I really needed to go to the ER for a head scan.  I didn't want to spend the day (and possibly night) at the hospital so I refused.  I am very black and blue with several large hematomas (that's what the big black swollen lumps are called) on my knee, leg and butt.  I am very, very sore!

Anyway, that's my story for this week.  Hope your week was better.  Here are your treats.  ENJOY!

National Scrapbooking Day - May 7, 2022

 Who knew?  I really didn't see a lot of chatter about NSD this year.

Each year on the first Saturday in May, National Scrapbook Day invites the country to bring their talents together to celebrate the art of scrapbooking. Also known as National Scrapbooking Day, avid scrapbookers gather to share their craft.

A love for memories and craftsmanship, combined with unlimited creativity, make this day so special. For those who enjoy collecting keepsakes, photos, or other mementos, there really isn't a better way to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day than by creating a scrapbook page.   I hope some of these gifts help you do just that.  ENJOY!

Tuesday Treat - May 3, 2022

 Here we are.  Another week gone by.  Sunday, our special needs great-granddaughter celebrated her First Holy Communion.  She was born with a rare disease called 9P Deletion.   Chromosome 9p deletion is a chromosome abnormality that occurs when there is a missing (deleted) copy of genetic material on the short arm (p) of chromosome 9. The severity and the signs and symptoms depend on the size and location of the deletion and which genes are involved.  When she was born, they predicted she would not be alive to celebrate her 5th birthday.  She has had numerous surgeries, and walks with braces but she is smart!  Our granddaughter is an awesome mom and treats Elizabeth like any other child, encouraging her to participate in all activities.  We are so proud of them.

Today I have a little mini kit.  Some papers, wordart and clusters.  ENJOY!

Tuesday Treat - April 26, 2022

We are so blessed.  We have such loving, caring children and grandchildren.  Because we have such trouble standing, it is difficult for us to cook.  Our granddaughter-in-law has started bringing over meals.  The first was a pork tenderloin with baby red potatoes, green beans with sausage (a meal in itself!) and grape salad.  Then because our grandson was off on his annual hunting trip, she made chicken broccoli alfredo, stuffed peppers and baked apples.  All the meals were big trays, enough for about 4 meals each.  This is in addition to all the food our daughters brought us on Easter.  How blessed are we!! 

Today I have two quick pages and a cluster.  I really like the way they came out, so I hope you do too.  The file is quite large (45 mb) so if you have a slow connection and need smaller files, just let me know.  ENJOY!
