The Continuing Saga...

Boyd continues to improve but this has really sapped his energy.

We are so lucky to be retired and have the time to move at a

snail's pace that his healing requires.

~~~~~

I have a COLD... an old-fashioned, nose-dripping, coughing,

sore throat, cold. Haven't had one in years.

I pray Boyd doesn't get it.

~~~~~

I continue to work on "MY STORY" in photos and words.

My Mom and I used to sit and look at the photo albums

over and over. She'd tell me the stories behind all the

pictures. I'm so glad she did as I can recall them

and now have stories to record.

If you want to read any of the journaling on the layouts

just click on the photo.

When I lived in Germany (teaching), I was so aware of

the parents taking their babies outside in all kinds of

weather from snow to rain. Their buggies were designed

with a cover to allow just the babies face to be exposed.

These layouts are great. I especially love the hearts in that first one. (Gave me some "sewing" ideas!)

I'm glad that Boyd is able to rest some -- and I am hoping that you're doing the same thing, when you can.

Take care -- drink lots of fluids. Sleep. Read. Rest.

You're in my thoughts....

Oh dear, I hope you both recover soon. Your layouts are, as always, exquisite.

I need to send my friend over here to look at these, I'm trying to talk her into going digital. These are a perfect example of how fab it can be.
I hope that you both resting, and taking good care of yourselves.

Aaw, I'm sorry you're sick! I will be praying that Boyd doesn't get it and complicate his healing process. Take care.

Hi Joni,

I'm SO SORRY to hear about Boyd! A few days away from reading blogs and so much has happened. I hope he is feeling better (you, too)! So scary. I have been making lots of cards, but doing almost no scrapbooking. I'm getting ready to take a digi class at Getting It Scrapped. I'll let you know what I think. Meanwhile, I'll organizing all my digi supplies in Shoebox. It's going pretty quickly, but I have a ton of stuff, most of which I got for free, thinking some day I would want it. Now is the time. I need to do layouts for four weeks of Project 365. Your daughters are blessed to have the wonderful history you are recording! Take care. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
