More 365 & Some Scrappin'!

19/365 - Monday: Boy, this is harder than I thought it would be.....coming up with a picture everyday! But here is Monday's picture.....more icicles. These ones are above our deck on the back of the house. For some reason, our gutters turn into ice in the winter.....I'm just waiting for the day that they fall off from all the weight of the ice!
20/365 - Tuesday: Okay, so I actually cheated a little for the above picture & took it on Wednesday instead of Tuesday on our way to bowling. But I thought it was appropriate to use as Tuesday's picture since that was the day our new President was inaugurated into office. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see an eagle on the top of the first flagpole. And yes, that's a McD's sign as well.....what's more American than McDonalds? :)
21/365 - Wednesday: Our Wednesday ritual. Just a picture of the bowling center we bowl at. Needless to say, I bowled like complete crap today! But look at that clear blue sky! Something we don't get to see much of in Michigan in the Winter!
22/365 - Thursday: Our grocery shopping trip. Okay, okay, so I know a lot of people don't like Walmart, but I DO! We buy almost all of our groceries here & I know we've saved a ton of money by shopping at Walmart! And besides, I just love the new Supercenter that they opened last year.
Now for my layouts.....I did both of these yesterday! 2 layouts in one day! I think that's a first for me :) I love the way the one above turned out. I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge to cut out the big diecut behind the photos. Everything on the page is by Making Memories except for the 2 big flowers. I used my typewriter to do the journaling because I hate my handwriting! You probably can't tell, but I also 'stickled' each little dot on the background paper :)
Most of the things I used on this layout are also from Making Memories (think I'm addicted to MM? lol). I also used some Prima flowers & leaves along with Stickles on the trees, the berry & leaves & the # 25. Everything is straight IRL.....honest :) Since I don't have a scanner right now, I take pictures of my layouts & that's not always easy, either.

My physical therapy is going pretty good. I finally got my shoulder doctor to fax over the RX for my shoulder, so now she's treating me for both my shoulder & neck & I'm there for 2 hours each time instead of just 1. Other than that, not much else is new.....been bowling like crap for some reason :( It's still Winter & although we're supposed to be in the mid to upper 30's today, it's supposed to get cold again tomorrow, only in the teens! I have to work tonight & then Jim will be meeting me so we can work-out when I get off. I was so excited to get back into the gym, but now, finding the time has been hard for some reason! It's just been a busy week, but next week, we'll be getting back on track & back on a schedule.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Sweet Benita, you've got Tag! :-) On my Paper PAisleys blog, you will find one specific question for you to blog about an answer to.

Oooh, more layout love! I enjoy your layouts so much, girl!

I'm so glad you are getting 2 hours of therapy! Mine woulda just combined them, the lout. Grrr. Don't let em do that to you.

Dang, it's cold here too! I had to turn on the space heater in the little tykes playhouse for our Reggie dog. So, sorry I can blow you a wind of hot air from down here....yeah, you KNOW I could do it, lol.
