Yesterday my daughter and I had a video call. We were both feeling yucky, so it was nice to see her and do a "Mama checkup." LOL We both actually had on makeup and looked pretty good in spite of being under the weather, so I took a screenshot to record the technology (that may change dramatically in the future - who knows?).
Aunt Nonie is my dad's older sister. She's never married, but she isn't without children. She spoiled her nieces and nephews and lavished them with love and hugs during their childhoods. There remains a close bond between the two of us. I still talk to her every week, sometimes multiple times, and I see her at least once a month. In December, we had an impromptu breakfast. We had a great time visiting, and she can still make amazing tomato gravy!
I'm participating in Calvinball over at Get It Scrapped. It's basically a way to help you keep focused on making layouts and/or finishing projects. The event lasts the entire month of March 2017. There are no prizes or winners announced ~ essentially, it's just having bragging rights. There are a number of ways to earn points and obviously one of the main ways to earn points is to make layouts.
Last year was my first year participating. My goal then was to get 30-45 layouts completed, and I wasn't really focused on points. I actually ended up getting 71 layouts completed AND I racked up 630 points . . . ending up in first place!
So this year, I'm participating again, hoping that I'll meet last year's number of layouts and trying to defend my spot in first place. LOL Unfortunately, I'm struggling with my back issues and my computer time is more limited than last year. I'm really going to have to focus on time management if I want to get 71 layouts done.
Come join in if you need some friendly encouragement to get layouts and/or projects finished. There's no deadline to enter - just join in when you can!
So here's my first layout. This is my son enjoying his New Year's cupcake. He's such a good sport because he was really ready to eat that cupcake, but he stopped and gave me a nice smile so I could record his little treat.
