Utterly and completely

exhausted. That was me last night. I had a follow up with the doctor yesterday (after work) for my cough. Lungs all clear and I took the last of my antibiotic just before my appt. Yay! I went to bed last night and was asleep before my head hit the pillow.

This morning we woke to a "late start" because of snow. Here's what I woke to. These are pics from my bedroom window. Wow, right!?!

I love the beauty of the outdoors when it snows. It's always so clean, calming, and peaceful. What a wonderful start to my day!!!

Yesterday I scrapped this with Karah's stuff. The frames are "stuck together" and are being released today at Oscraps.

And this is an adorable kit by Emily Merritt available for $2 2day only at {we are} storytellers.

And that is all I've got for today. Wishing you all well. Enjoy your week.

Some scrappy time in a week full of

doctor appointments. I had a scheduled appointment for last Monday which was good because I had a minor cough that was turning major from our weekend at the beach. I had doc check it out while I was there. He started me on some meds. Then I was was back on Friday and Saturday both. Eeek! On Saturday's appointment they even did chest xrays and gave me something new. They also scheduled a follow up for Wednesday. Whew! I hope I'm on the mend now.

Moving right along- here are my project 52 pics.

Here are a few things I worked on this week-

And Jenni Bowlin has gone digital. She is now selling her digital kits at {we are} Here's something I made with her latest kit-

This weekend my harmony lo was published in Bella Scraps magazine. It's a great issue and you should check it out! :)

Well, I am heading off to work. I hope you all have a super fab week!

The beach

was beautiful. It was cold and crisp in the mornings. There was an icy frost over the grass outside the hotel and about half way down to the beach each morning. It warmed up and was dry for the most part the rest of the trip. It sprinkled for just a bit on Saturday while we were walking through town but not enough to slow us down.

Here's some pics I took on our walks to and from the beach. Some are taken in the morning and others at sunset.

We swam, walked through town and played at the arcade, rode the go carts, and played some board games back at the hotel in the evenings. We walked the beach and fed the seagulls, collected some shells and I nearly drowned my dog. Bha! But all is good and we had much fun. So so so nice to get away and unwind a little. :)

Monday I had a doctor appt. where I learned I had hypothyroidism. Doctor started me on a treatment and it's supposed to make be feel a little better within the next few weeks. I haven't felt awful but I have noticed some changes this past year in my health. Glad to know that there was a reason other than getting old. Lol!

I am working on several crafty things this week but I haven't anything to show you today.

I'll be back in a few days to update and post my Project 52 pics. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

Coming out for a breather

from the daunting task of finances. I do have our taxes done. I'll give them a once over tomorrow before I file them. And our personal stuff, well I have a really good start on them. I have to finish up a few other areas we would like to manage (beyond our checking/savings) but for the most part, that is done too. *Deep sigh of relief!*

I stumbled upon a coupon for a hotel we like at the beach. My darling daughter had asked to go there for her birthday but I wasn't sure we'd be able to afford to stay the weekend. It turns out we can. We have reservations for next weekend and I am really excited.

Here are week 5 and 6 pics for Project 52-

My Cat-

One of the kids' friends (who are so close they are like family)

I also worked on some scrappy stuff- Underwear is all the craze? lol! Here's a potty chart, card, bookmark, DVD sleeves, and some plain ol' stickers.

So I like to watch Grey's and LOST. When LOST started this season I was SO distracted by Saywer's teeth. He had the fixed and whitened. Of course he has every right to do so, but where on the island do they offer that service? Am I the only one with this little hang up? lol! And I was less then impressed with Grey's last season- but I think the last couple of episodes have been really good. I'm looking forward to next weeks episode. I've always liked Addison though. :)

Well, I'm off to stretch my legs. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!

I applaud you

if you are one of those doing project 365. That would mean you get your camera out each and every single day. Wow!

Me? I am pushing it trying to participate in project 52. lol! Here's what I have so far...

I cannot believe it is February already!?!?! This month has gone by in a blur. And the week after this, my baby is having her 13th birthday. Ack! I have some ideas but no plans yet for her birthday party or gifts. I better get busy, huh?

This week I did make one hybrid project. I used now retired Two Sisters papers.

And this week and probably next, I will go nuts on the finances. It's tax time and we also have decided to go with a new system to organize our home finances and monthly bills- which I need to spend hours no doubt setting up. This is one of those things I hate to do the prep needed but feel so accomplished once I've finished it. Nose to the grind, right!

Today my schedule is so tight, I've spent my only free time, blogging. You all have a terrific Tuesday! Thanks for stopping in!
