Happy Memorial Week everyone!

Sorry I have been MIA for a few days, been busy with lots of birthday lunches and breakfasts and with the realtor, and trying to find missing paper work! I took a day off to go to the Botanical Gardens with a friend....missed a step and kissed the cement pretty hard. Hurt my hand, arm, shoulder and my artificial knee, but the worst thing was scratching the lens in my glasses...of course, all this over a holiday break, so I just kind of lazed around all day on Sunday watching the 3 races and icing down the hand and knee. Then on Monday, all the sore muscles screamed at me so didn't do anything, not even a shower or get out of my pjs....just rested and relaxed and took my Aleve.  Anyhow, today I feel pretty good, but it has been a busy day of playing catch up with missed housework, etc.  Had to have an electrician come fix a couple of plugs that died...in both bathrooms....go figure! That just finished and I am getting ready to watch AGT and crash early AGAIN...yes, I am learning to be quite lazy...LOL!
Hope your long weekend was a good one and that you made lots and lots of memories to share AND that you got in lots of thanks to all the service men and women...past and present and those that paid the ultimate price. I thank all of you each day in my prayers for my freedom.
I did make a page, but that was way before doing the kissing the pavement in the Rose Garden. Today is Kathy's birthday and just want to say Happy 65 sister dear...we have many more to come. Will cut this short for this time. Have a fantastic week and I hope to be back in here in a day or too chatting with all of you again. Many Hugs! Mat
 Here's a cluster frame I created on Miriam's Scraps if anyone wants to go there and download it for free.
 I did this for Throw Back Thursday on Facebook before my birthday, this was made in 1967 in Yalova, Turkey and the frame is by Miriam from her awesome Wedding Kit 2 that is free on her site...It is HUGE!

This page I just did for a book for Amy of her immediate family, this is her dad's parents and is in the gorgeous free QP by Linda at Random Thoughts.
 This is my friend Liz at the Gaylord Texan the Sunday before my birthday just cause she had never been out there and we wanted to get out of the house on such a gorgeous day. The frame is by Laurrie at CheyOkota
And finally the birthday girl....I know I have put this one up before, but just not up to making a new page for her right now, besides I have some very limited amount of photos of her....LOL! This is a frame by Neli at Lugar Encantado da Neli.


  1. My goodness, what a time you've been having!! I want to wish you a happy Belated Birthday. What a time to have all these mishaps happening. Now that they are all out of the way, your next birthday is sure to be quite fabulous!!

    I was wondering how you have been making out with all the flooding in Texas. It's good to know that you are okay. Except of course for your bumps and bruises!

    Daughter in law is here for supper so I'll say good day, and you have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. Hi Mat, Boy it sounds like you have been having some "down time". I remember a few years ago when the cement came up to meet me! I split my hand right open, and of course didn't go to the clinic for stitches, but I was a sore lady for a few days too. Take it easy and heal up. Your flowers looks beautiful, and you love the same kind I do. I was surprised that you are talking about moving, but I understand why. It's nice to be close to family, I don't know what I would do if I was a long ways away from mine. Good luck with selling your duplex. -
    The wedding was simple but beautiful, a wonderful day for us all. Talk to you soon, my friend. Hugs Donna

  3. Wow, you sure know how to make a wonderful day a special one LOL! You really hit the cement hard, lucky you didn;t broke anything, but I can imagine how the bruises ahd sour muscles are feeling, and that isn't something to be happy with!
    Good you finally learned a whee bit to keep a low profile at times, your body needs this for sure after your fall!
    Before i forget: happy birthday(belated) to Kathy!

    It's funny how you are having hard times with the heat and that in the south they have excessive rain!
    If there only was a britght soul who could figure out to collect all that surplus of rainwater and get it to places where there is too much drought!
    Think I will do just a bit of shopping today and then also keep a low profile, giggle!
    Take care and wishing you soon healing from your bruises and all !

  4. Boa tarde, minha querida amiga Mat!
    Você tem feito coisas lindas! Gosto muito de ver como está cada vez melhor com trabalhos de grande sensibilidade e muito bom gosto!
    Minha amiga, vim aqui outro dia e escrevi um comentário e quando postei, não entrou de maneira alguma, às vezes o blogger faz essas maldades conosco. Espero que você esteja melhor, parece que se machucou, não foi? Aqui tenho estado com a conexão meio ruim, creio que é por causa das tempestades que tem acontecido.
    Querida amiga, tenha um excelente final de semana, com muita paz e alegria.
    Grande abraço, Neli.

    Good afternoon, my dear friend Matt!
    You have done wonderful things! I love to see how you are getting better jobs with great sensitivity and great taste!
    My friend came here the other day and wrote a comment and when I posted, did not enter in any way, sometimes blogger does these evils us. Hope you're feeling better, seems to have hurt, right? Here I've been through with the bad connection, I believe that is because of the storms that have happened.
    Dear friend, Have a great weekend, with peace and joy.
    Big hug, Neli.
