I was back in time

Goodmorning everybody!

Rather good weather here, again sunshine, temps not really high, but nice. I was out yesterday for a moment and also on Monday and it was nice. You can feel a bit the warmth of the sun at times. Oh how wonderful, it means that sunny times are slowly coming a bit nearer, and may be Spring will not wait too long to arrive( we have just hope LOL).
Even Jan went out for a walk again. Well, he had to yesterday to give a blood sample again, but even on Monday he made a little walk. Not that all is well again with his back, but it seems it's better for longer periods now. Still has to be and move very careful, tried to get him to the doctor again, but no success. I gave up, yes, I did.
Just have to watch him, and hoping he gives some answers when I ask him how it feels. He always answers with"oh, it's going wonderful". Great help, hey?  But he is also a brave guy, not complaining or moaning, amazing.

I just did some blog reading and was on Su's blog,
and her blogpost did bring me back memoreis about my first steps in the digital scrapbooking and later the first steps on designing. Oh my God, my first attempts looked aweful!
Go to her blog and read the post and I am sure many of you will understand what I mean.

And if you are there you also can grab some awesome freebies, and she also has a page where she gives you links to all sorts of recources which can be very useful.

Last week the mother of one of my internet friends, Valinda, married on Valentines day.
Valinda already did post a few photos of the ceremony and I snatched on to make a layout for her and her mother as a kind of little wedding present. She posted it on her blog, but I will show it here too.
I;ve made the layout with my kit Falling in love(clusters used from Arlene). The couple is looking so happy and young amazing to know they are 83 and 81 years old!
I sure hope I will reach that age and then will look THAT GOOD!

Did already the laundry and some ironing yesterday, so perhaps I can leave the house for a day, want to prepare the dinner for this evening a bit earlier, meat has to be on the stove for a while and I'll make a stew to go with it from mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.
There will be enough for two days in a row, so tomorrow is easy on the cooking LOL.
And it alwasy tastes better the second day.
But when all is clooking and such, I might take that time to run around with the vacuum cleaner( not just running,but actually using it , hahahaha), because with the sun shining into the room it shows a messy floor!

Today;'s kit is "Gifts Along the Way", with clusters from Arlene, as usual. I think this is again a versatile kit, so have some fun with it.
Happy day!

What a terrific looking couple. Surely don't look to be in their 80's! Cute page you made for them as well.
We are having rain and sleet showers today and tonight supposed to be rather ugly weather with possible hail and tornados. It is only going to be in mid 40's today after 80 on Monday!!! Weird weather!
My handyman (rent a husband..LOL) just dropped off my counter top and sink and faucet for the guest bathroom, he will put it all in tomorrow morning, so I have to get all the stuff out of his way so it will be ready for him. LOL!
O well, guess I better hush and get busy! I thank you for the lovely gift and thank Arlene for me as well! Have a lovely "hump" day as we call Wednesday! LOL!
Hugs, Mat

What a lovely layout you made for Valinda and her mom. I have to agree, these folks look fabulous for their age!!

I agree with the memories about our earliest attempts at scrap design too. When I look back, I think how awful! But over the years we all have got much better. Learning is good for us.

Daughter in law is on her way over here, so gotta go. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
