  1. Covid has taught me my teens think they can sleep like vampires and keep odd schedules. 😆 Or maybe that's just because they're teens.

      My 10 year old DGS has reached teenager-hood while he's been off school. He's needing the routine that school gives.

  2. Anybody bite off a bit more than they expected? For Bingo there is a prompt to make a list. There is one I have been wanting to make for some time. Great time to get to it and then scrap it. Subject? Make a list of all the roses I have in my yard. Sounds simple right. Wrong. First, I didn't realize how many roses I had -- 33. Second I couldn't remember all their names. Have spent the last 3 days cataloging and looking up names of roses. But I do have my list with all their names!! Now to get it into a scrap page, or 2, or 3, 33 is a lot of roses.

      Wish I had room for 33 roses in my garden! I have a pink rugosa hedge out front and 5 or 6 old fashioned roses in the back. Cardinal de Richlieu is my favourite. Hope you can post your page so I can see what varieties you have.

  3. I broke a toe on Friday. It looks horrible, black and blue and swollen. I’ll live, just slower now. I dropped a HUGE bottle of salsa, and had to clean the kitchen before attending to my toe.

  4. It is HOT out there today..summer has hit.  The dogs won't even lay on the porch

      After temperatures in the 80's last week, we are now wet and shivering. Central heating went on this evening. Ugh!

  5. Our sweet daughter has to have a hysterectomy today. She is nervous and has to go this totally alone. I hope all goes well and the tests come back ok. No visitors...poor girl. Stressful day as we pack to go North. I will see her in 2 weeks.

      What a worrying time for you. I'm sure you will be so relieved when you can see her face to face.

  6. I had to put my cat Tini to sleep Thursday. He was not doing well: not eating, incontinent, crying and not walking very well. I miss him and I was with him when they put him to sleep, so that his mommy was the last one he saw.00021030.thumb.jpg.42e9e40919298058c108075fbbe8bbd0.jpg

  9. F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team and 388th Fighter Wing squads as the F-35 jets perform a flyover across most of Utah. . . It was so exciting everyone ran outside their homes. It was to honor the medical people working so hard.

      Our way of thanking the medical and front line services in the UK has been to stand in our gardens and clap at 8 p.m every Thursday. I was outside with everyone just now, banging my saucepan with a wooden spoon! However we acknowledge their work, we all want them to know they are appreciated

  10. Update on gallery:  They have restarted the gallery and it's working right now, so you can upload.  BUT this is just a fix.  We need to update the forum/gallery...and that's something i'm hoping can wait until Monday after this weekend is over.  So i'll keep an eye on it.

  11. Saturday I gave away the last of the 150  masks we made at the club all those two weekends. So I am getting the girls together again today to make more. I just don't know how many to make, when will it all end????

  22. Just purchased some new product, the first in quite a while. I'm going to try and create a layout. My hands are still giving me problems, but I'm going to give it a try.  It might take me a few days, but I'll give it my best.

  23. The way it's looking I don't think the kids will go to school this week.  Monday = holiday, Tuesday canceled due to ice on country roads, Wed more snow and ice coming.  UGH

  24. Three years ago today Jody died.  Darren and the boys are well and the boys are growing into young men, “Jody would be proud of”.  Aidan graduated from High School in December and Callan is now 16 ½.  Amazing how time flies.  Darren is touched when I say how Jody is still remembered on ScrapGirls and even recognizes the names when I show him.  She touched so many and is sorely missed... 💕

      3 years - it can't be! I'm so glad you keep in touch with her family and that they know Jody is not forgotten by us here.
