  1. Update: I saw the neurologist on Tuesday and she said that she wants me to have an MRI and have it compared to the last one that I had done previously.

      I was looking for a butterfly embellishment just the other day and wondered how you were doing. Hope things will improve. You have been missed.

  4. Aside from my liver giving me problems, I've been in bed with the flu, fever, sinus headaches and I'm off balance. I'm so tired of being sick.

  8. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I spent it in the hospital, but I did have turkey for dinner. I have what they call non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. They had to drain fluid out of my abdomen and send it out for testing. My oxygen level was low so I had to go on oxygen. I had so much blood work done on me I felt like a pincushion. I came home on Friday night. I'm on two different diuretics and a very low sodium diet. Crikey!

      Thanks for all your good wishes. I'm starting to feel a little better. I have an appointment with my GI this week and I hope she will have some good news for me. I've lost four pounds, which of course is all water retention.

      Well that is some  good news. I'm glad you are feeling a little better. Good luck with Dr. and keep us posted.

  9. Snowed yesterday and had to cancel my trip to see the Peter Max exhibit. It's still on until the end of December, so I hope we can go another time. Expecting more snow today.

    1. ScrapgirlCindy


      that's a shame.....we'll be getting snow today too!

    2. Boatlady


      Yikes more snow.I can say that is one thing I do not miss about the north. I hope get another chance to go see the exhibit. It's chilly here but supposed to get up into the low 70's today...its ok.

  10. My camera is on the fritz. Looks like I'll need to get a new one. Crikey! 😭

      Sounds like a great Christmas present!

    3. Boatlady


      Oh no...I thought you just got it. Well good luck. Take it to a camera shop maybe it is something simple that you are missing.

    4. alsoarty


      Oh no! what's happening with it? Maybe it just needs a cleaning and service?

    Camera photography ?

    I never use my cell phone to take photos. I barely use it at all. I use my Canon EOS Rebel T5 on auto setting. I just get confused with DOF and all the other settings.

  17. I've been without internet, phone, and tv service for the past few days. ConEd shut down our electricity for 15 minutes on Tuesday while they were fixing something in our complex. That blew everything out and we had to get the Verizon Cable guy come and fix everything. So now everything is up and running. Woo Hoo!

    photo inside a letter.

    Beautiful photo of the Heron and I like how you blended it into the background. Love how you placed his head through the 'O'. The alpha is so perfect for this layout. I've got to go and dig it out of my stash.

    Boisterous Fall!

    This is such a pretty page. I love the template and the embellishments you used. The photo of Erinn and Conner playing in the Autumn leaves is just adorable. Brings back memories of my childhood.
