Photo Gallery prt 2

So these are the frames I have. There is one more on the wall I can't get to that holds 20 cameos.

I have 8 grandchildren and each will get their own frame. They will go in the 5 & 4 rectangle ones. I have only one picture of number 8 so I don't have a four for her yet.

I figure the four oldest will get the 5's and the three younger ones the 4's

The biggest frame will hold a group picture of as many of them as I can get in one place at one time and will probably form the centre of the wall.

The four that hold cameos I have not decided exactly what I'm going to do with them but I suspect they will be divided by his families & her families plus one of my birth family and one for the professor & I

It is possible I will have to replace one of the 5's because it has a broken corner but I am not sure yet and the cameo one in the bottom right is in pretty bad shape. As it is to be a full wall I am also thinking about adding the family crest & the one award I have plus some word art. I am not entirely sure how big the total display will be which is why I'm using my second biggest wall for it.

There is a small wall catty-corner from the wall I will be using that currently holds a knick-knack shelf & artwork from 6 of my grandchildren. I have a second knick-knack shelf I want to put up on that wall but to do so I have to rearrange what is already there. Most especially the present shelf needs to be moved over at least about half a metre maybe a bit more. There is a metre on one side of it and 2/3 of one on the other side. The second shelf if put in either of these places would cause a very unbalanced view. As a Libra, I am fond of balance. This wall is also quite small compared to the one the photo gallery is going on

But then I always have more ideas than I have time or energy to implement. I hope to have the photo wall completed by January but winter is coming and I am already feeling it so we will see.

Live, Love, Laugh

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Putting my best foot forward

Once a year I go get a hair cut. Tomorrow is that day.

Actually, for the last four, it has been a hair shave, that is every hair on my head was cut to an mm of its life. This year to celebrate my 59th year I decided to modify the cut a little as the hot flashes and the symptoms of menopause have been on the decline letting me hope I have finally entered Post-Menopause

I decided I was going to do some research on what kind of cut I wanted. Along the way, I learned a little bit of hairdresser speak.

I look carefully at Jamie Lee Curtis and Dame Judi Dench as they are the epitome of style for the older woman but while both cuts were interesting neither was what I wanted though Jamie Lee comes close.

I like the top layer it is short but longer than the sides so there is a little on top to play with and dress up plus it is still easy to take care of. For the sides and back, I want to go shorter. You see how the hair fades from the long top to the really short area around the ears this is w…
