August is the month when my father in law was hospitalised for kidney failure and we are so thankful that he has been able to start dialysis treatments, and that his body is responding well and he has come home after two and a half weeks. Though he is still weak and has poor appetite, we are hopeful his health will improve and rejoice together in our hope in Christ.
The story is about J's obsession with crew (height) socks, nothing higher, nothing lower is acceptable. So much so he uses rubber bands to hold up his favorite old socks without complaints. :)
One of my best friends who now lives in Malaysia also came for a lovely, lovely visit.
And it is also my birthday in August. There are indeed too many candles now lol, so we did not bother with a cake :) Dh surprised me with many hidden gifts, card throughout my day including a handwritten love letter! And the Nora Ephron book about growing older that is hilarious.
I tucked the love letter into the pocket behind the filler card :)
And we also brought back all our stuff from 'paid personal storage' and sort through them to 'downsize' some more. Something Old covered what I found so far and kept or had to throw out. Including a shot of me (now) wearing one of my old pair of spectacles (from twenty years ago!)
We've cooking more so this get's recorded in Today's menu. Then there is our Tea Time ritual every evening. And stories of the note dh left on our door when he was locked out, and of Ryan and his Paranoia, everyday stories that are precious to me!
Included tea bags and all from the various chinese, japanese, herbal and other teas we consume these days. Love that I can keep these in PL!
Linking up over at The Mom Creative for Jessica's Project Life Tuesdays. I follow her on Bloglovin and enjoy many of her posts and finds, do check her blog out!
Did you noticed that I had a lot of fun designing my own filler cards? After breaking out my old Bamboo wacom tablet last month making the doodle frames and figuring out how to write digitally, I can now put whatever words or sentiments I like on them, so cool :) That's my 'handwriting' there!
So here's my first try at filler cards, in jpeg formats, wrapped up in a file for you to download Here.
Also want to share lots of super layouts by Kim (aka Five Seventeen Creations). Kim's family just moved to Florida and she has all these super Disney World photos of her beautiful family. And Kim is so good at using my templates and creatively transforming them like this:
Now I bet you are inspired! Thanks Kim for sharing with us your lovely family and beautiful layouts!
