    Project Life, week 36, 2018

    journaling: Our grandson Preston started 4 year old Pre-K this fall! His school offers beginning piano lessons, and he is so excited! Truth be told, his Gimpa (Dave) is just as excited. Dave started playing piano when he was five, so the thought of any one of our kidlets following in his footsteps has him over the moon. On Sunday we went to Amy & Brian’s house to celebrate Amy’s birthday. Their dog Ceecee doesn’t swim, but she likes to lay on the top step in the cool water. Oh Ivy, this week’s casualty was the recipe book I made for my Instant Pot and Air Fryer. I was able to salvage most of the recipes, but the binder was a total loss. The recipes are all in my computer, so I will just reprint the ones I need. She also got into the recycling bin and claimed a milk jug as her prize. She tried to get it up on the couch but kept dropping it. She looked very sad, but finally just laid down on the floor to chew on it. Yes, we do buy her toys. *sigh* Another favorite of mine from the 1970’s is gone. Burt Reynolds died this week, and it’s a sad passing. He was at Florida State University the same time as my sister, in the late ‘50s, and played on the Seminoles football team. He remained in South Florida and has always been a big supporter of the FSU football program. To celebrate Grandparent’s Day, mom’s care facility had a party. There were games, and lots of good food. Sadly, she asked me if I had any grandchildren. When I named them, she seemed surprised and then asked who ‘her’ grandchildren were. I‘m sure she thought that my grandchildren were hers. It’s so sad to see her slowly declining. We’re waiting for a private room to open up so that we can take over more of her things. If we can decorate, it will help it seem less like a hospital. supplies: EBA_Calypso_Paper_Dots, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, JRA_HomeSweetHome_Emb_Flower1 (retired), JRA_HomeSweetHome_Emb_Flower_SmallOrange (retired), JRA_HomeSweetHome_Emb_Flower_SmallYellow (retired), JRA_HomeSweetHome_Paper12 (retired), JRA_HomeSweetHome_Paper14 (retired), MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Fonts: Arial, Minya Nouvelle, CVW_SupplyTracker

    Digital Planners...Bujo...Have you heard???

    Also, I'm getting the hang of basic things in Procreate! I was able to use one of Kara's masks and make new backgrounds for my pages, then add the weekly LO over top and lower the opacity to make it look spiffy! I feel so smart.

    I like a mix for things like that. If it was seasonal things, I'd be looking for something more coordinated. Maybe offer a bright colored set and also a set of more subdued, neutral-ish colors?

    journaling: Life without Ivy would be very boring. I’d really love to know what that’s like! At least Dusty confined himself to eye glasses and remote controls, but Ivy has no such filter. Shoes, magazines, carpet ... you name it, she’s eaten it. Or tried to. We now close every door in the house when we leave and also at night. But seriously, she’s so darned cute we can’t stay mad for too long. We put her outside after she chewed up a stack of recipe magazines I’d been saving and then we heard a crash. Dave said, “That sounded like the fire pit.” Famous last words! She knocked over a plastic garbage can where I’d been hiding the remnants of fire wood that she had chewed up and when it fell it knocked over the metal fire bowl. She saw her first deer while we were on a walk, fortunately it was too far away for her to take off after. We’re doing music again at the church because the new director was in a serious car accident last week. She has multiple broken bones and we aren’t sure when or even ‘if’ she will be able to return. Also, we’re getting really tired of the emergency room at the local hospital. Dave’s BP dropped again but this time we had to call 911. So much for our first rehearsal with the choir. They sent us home at 1:30 am with orders to follow up with the cardiologist. supplies: EBA_Calypso_Paper_Waves, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Fonts: Arial, Minya Nouvelle, CVW_SupplyTracker

    journaling: Happy Birthday to Zander! August is a great month for birthdays in our family, and our grandson turned six on Monday. They went to Chuck. E. Cheese and had a blast. Ivy continues to be entertaining. Dave found a mat for her crate in WalMart and had to buy it. There was no convincing him that it wasn’t a good idea. So, it lasted all of 5 minutes before she destroyed it. You can see the size hole she tore in before I threw it away. “Get a dog,” they said. “It will be fun,” they said. Late Thursday night Dave fell and tore up his right arm. The next morning it looked really nasty, so I took him to the ER to get it dressed properly. They did a CT scan to make sure he hadn’t injured his neck and I took this photo while we were waiting for the results. He was fine, so we didn’t have to keep the collar. I found a comforter at GoodWill for Ivy’s crate, and she loves it. She doesn’t use it very often, but at least she isn’t tempted to tear it up. You can see what’s left of one of my church shoes, fortunately I have a spare pair. She’s so bad, but we love her dearly. At least she eventually wears herself out! supplies: BMU_GenHospital_Band-Aid, DRB_Birthday-Party_06, DRB_Birthday-Party_Cake, DRB_Birthday-Party_Celebrate, EBA_Calypso_Paper_Waves, GBE_Blueberry_pop_solid_01, MPE_SIM3_Calendar, MPE_ScrapIt_Monthly_DateMarkers_Brushes, SBA_SSStyles_PhotoBorders_6501_White-Sm, SNU_SSStyles_ShadowMe6301_Lace-Wire, Fonts: Arial, Cherry Swash, Problem Secretary, CVW_SupplyTracker

    Who is Retiring?

    Aww, Melissa you will be missed! As will Jan! I'm always sad to see designers leave the SG family. 😥
