  1. Our home for sale... first family to look through it happened already, today - family with three boys. It would be nice to see the house being lived in by a family again.

    1. CRS


      It's been a year since we moved and I still have mixed feelings about leaving our house. I hope it's a quick sale for you!

    2. AggieB


      Hope the sale goes quickly, Anne Marie.

    3. scrapgran


      Fingers crossed for a quick turn around.

  5. Hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

  6. I have done something to my right shoulder on Thursday when I lifted a wheelie walker out of a taxi - my voluntary work in aged care. It was sort of okay yesterday but today I am in agony if I lift my arm. So thankful I have a pen and tablet so I could do some digi today.

    1. AggieB


      Be careful with that shoulder now - you don't want to aggravate it. Hope you are better soon.

    2. LauraYB


      Give your shoulder a little TLC for a while. Hope it feels better very soon.

    3. laurielou56


      If it doesn't get better, I would go to the doctor. I had a slight dislocation once and could lift my arm to the front but not to the side. A quick pop (that hurt like the dickens!) and it was all better.

  8. I had fun today creating two pages for our Staycation. I did not think I would get any done.

    1. MariJ


      Yay, Anne Marie! And gorgeous layouts they are, too! :)

    Patsy I had to post my message here as when I went to send the PM a message came up saying your could not receive any more messages.

  10. A-M

    Hi Patsy

    I noticed your question and thought I would send you a PM.

    I am using a record player that has recording capabilities - to record on an SD card or USB. You can also record the old cassettes as well with this player. Then I am copying them to a second USB and an EHD to make sure we hopefully never lose them. I am then going to donate the records to a local community radi...

  11. I am busy listening to The Beatles on an old LP. I am busy recording our favorite LPs unto USB and backing up on an EHD. A little bit of help with downsizing to get rid of the big pile of LPs.

    1. Marie-Christine


      with a little bit of help from your friends :)

      ie. EHD,USB :)

    2. Pab


      What program are you using to do this?

      Just know the LP's are worth something these days. My daughter was looking for some to decorate a 50's dance and they can be pretty pricey online.

  16. I had a good afternoon of getting two pages scrapped... tomorrow I better get back to doing the jobs around this home to get it ready for selling later in the year.

    1. AggieB


      Sounds like you are in for a lot of work, Ann-Marie. Good luck with the sale.

    2. LauraYB


      After selling our 2 homes, best advice given to me--1) pace yourself and 2) don't be afraid to have the girls over for a 2-hr packing party. They're a great help and they boost your spirit! Best wishes for a pleasant sale/move.

  17. Happy Birthday Barbara. Hope you have a really special day.

  18. I have decided to return and be more active again as I do miss this place. I may not be over active just yet as we are preparing our home for sale in the hopes we can move closer to where my one and only daughter lives.

    1. Durin


      Nice to see you! Wishing you well on your home sale and move. :)

    1. AggieB


      I had a great Christmas with my family, thanks. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  25. WE are having some really hot weather. This morning sky is overcast so hopefully it will be a little cooler. I am off to the doctor today as I have done something to my thumb - cannot bend it and it hurts!

    1. AnnBK


      Amazing how useful that little digit is! Hope it's something simple and the doc gets it fixed up in a jiff.


    2. laurielou56


      Hope all went well at the docs office and you're soon on the mend.

    3. Belle


      Hope your thumb is ok. Heat wave here as well.
