It's Tuesday so it must be food shopping

I seem to be getting my weeks organised, I never used to be so regimented. Yesterday being Monday I tried to do a bit of house work, did manage a little bit but not as much as I should have, felt too tired to do much.

I do have a picture for Monday though the sky in the morning was quite a sight

it's so lovely to be able to look out of my back gate and see this first thing of a morning. I can stand there in my dressing gown and more often than not there is not a soul around.

Today I was going to catch the bus down to ASDA as well as back because it was raining but I just missed it so walk as usual didn't expect to take any photos but I felt that I should look for the beauty in the day even though it was wet wet wet. I found it

I did the weekly challenge from UKScrappers the challenge was to make our own flowers, use punches, inking and scrunching. I had previously punched out some flower shapes from the packaging that held embellishments, so I spritzed the plain side with bronze glimmer mist and sprayed it with water to soften them so I could scrunch them up to form a carnation type flower I also made some flowers with material


here is the layout, I used a photo of my paternal grandparents Harry and Daisy (standing at the back) and my maternal grandmother Emeline Blanche, seated right the other lady is Aunt Ethel (don't you just love those old names)the three ladies are sisters

Family Ties

I now have some dates so I can do the journalling on the larger of the shaped journalling spots.

Today I am grateful that I did have to walk down to Asda and that I found some beauty in the day
and that I am getting sorted with my Christmas shopping

Lovely flowers, Mary :)

We have a very regimented routine here - we have to lol! Of course, my accident meant we had to change it around, but we just switched to a new routine....

I keep trying to put a routine in place but it changes EVERY week.
Love your back gate view!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
