Nothing better than an unexpected visit from a daughter (or son, for that matter.) Such lovely photos of her, and your choice of papers is exquisite! The layout design is just perfect. Looking forward to seeing some more now that you have a new album to fill.

Debbie and I usually meet at 7:30 in the morning at Schoen Place in Pittsford to begin our walk to Bushnell's Basin. It's about a 5 3/4 mile walk. Now that autumn has arrived, the sun's just coming up as... Continue reading

The colors of this quilt are so beautiful, and what a lovely tribute to your mother! Welcome back; always glad to see you.

Waving to Sian and MM fans this beautiful Monday in Chicago. We often make a visit to Sarah and Adam in the fall, but this year we came a month earlier than usual so we would be here for a... Continue reading

As soon as I saw Nicole's inspiration piece for the PTI September Blog Hop, I knew I wanted to play along. Kraft, black, white, green, and twine---what's not to like about that? So, I set aside some time to play.... Continue reading

Although my goal of participating in a challenge every week has been only partially successful, the Fusion Challenge is one of my favorites. They offer up a sketch as well as an inspiration piece, and I combined aspects of both... Continue reading

Skylar turns five today, and there'll be a dinner tonight with just family. On Saturday she hosted a birthday party for her friends and classmates (and their parents and younger siblings). It was a wonderful event, and everyone, including the... Continue reading

I'm waving to Sian and her friends today. It was an incredibly busy weekend here filled with all kinds of new experiences. Tracy's high school class celebrated their 50th High School Reunion this weekend, and he was the chairperson of... Continue reading

This week's SNAP collection is a series of photos snapped while I was walking. Three were taken on the Erie Canal Trail, and the last one was taken from the pedestrian bridge over the Genesee River on my way to... Continue reading

I decided I was going to finish pages in whatever order was easiest, so you'll be seeing my catch-up pages here out of order for sure. The April pages covered our trip to New Orleans and didn't need too much... Continue reading

On our way home from Nantucket, we spent a day in Providence, Rhode Island. It had been nearly 40 years since we'd last been there, and we knew a lot had changed. We had a wonderful day, shopping on Hope... Continue reading

It's a very rare occurrence, but I didn't make a single card in August. The cards I posted were all made in July before we left on our vacation. So when I sat down on Thursday to made a couple... Continue reading

The last of the Nantucket SNAP collections, assuming I can come up with something original and interesting this week. There seems to be no end of the images from Nantucket that interest me. When I took the upper left photograph,... Continue reading

Truthfully, I wasn't really sure I'd ever catch up with my monthly PL spreads. When we returned from vacation two weeks ago, I was eight months behind. But shortly after we returned, I read on a blog about a woman... Continue reading

As I expected, I found quite a few of the items from the 2016 Summer Scavenger Hunt while we were on vacation. Some of them are duplicates of items I found earlier, but I couldn't resist adding them to the... Continue reading

Only two of the three lighthouses on Nantucket are easily accessible. To reach the third, you need a special pass, which evidently is not that hard to get, but there wasn't enough time to follow through. I have multiple views... Continue reading

Each month I like to participate in Sandie's 5 in 5 photography meme. I was quite sure I'd be able to come up with five photos in five minutes somewhere on Nantucket, and it proved easy to do. I finally... Continue reading

That is definitely one of my favorite Waterlogue photos---I've said it before, but I think they get better and better!

We've just returned from ten days visiting Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Providence, Rhode Island. It's been years since we were on Cape Cod or in Providence, and we'd never visited Nantucket. Betsy grew up with summer vacations on Nantucket, and... Continue reading

I have a couple of cards to share that shout summer to me. The first one was for a friend who has a pretty healthy dislike of flamingoes. Her brother regularly sent her flamingoes from all over the country when... Continue reading

Every time we visit Niagara-on-the-Lake we are taken with the gorgeous flower displays along the main street. All of these photos were taken within one block. They'll be just as gorgeous in October when we return with our friends for... Continue reading

For one of our friends, and definitely for my brother, retirement means more golf! This is actually the second retirement for my brother. He worked for many years, retired, needed something to do, and started driving a school bus. He... Continue reading

There were two special birthdays this week. The first was that of a friend who turned 80 on Monday. He certainly looks a lot younger that his age, and is quite the bridge player. We sang "Happy Birthday" to him... Continue reading

Thursday was our 43rd wedding anniversary and we celebrated with a day trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake to see their new musical, "Alice in Wonderland." I'd give the musical a mixed review---the production was amazing with wonderful videography that served as a... Continue reading

I'm plodding along with my Project Life pages, trying to keep ahead of being behind an entire year! Meanwhile, we (fortunately) continue to accumulate photos and wonderful memories, so once the summer is over I need to dedicate myself to... Continue reading
