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…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
