This and That

Well, do I have five goodies for you today. Linking with Willy Nilly Friday and Five on Friday

1. Got some hearing aids this week. They are temporary until I get my permanent ones but I am hearing things I haven't heard in a very long time. So, yippee and hurrah.

2. I am also having physical therapy to help with my balance. Never thought about it but they say that my lack of hearing could also affect my balance. Who knew?

3. I may be a completely new person once all that work is over. Well, sort of new. I will always be me no matter what. But, isn't it lovely that we get to change ourselves inside and out - to some degree?

4. Speaking of lovely/pretty things... when I went to get my hair done this week, my hairdresser just had to show me this gorgeous hibiscus that she had blooming. I love hibiscus, they remind me of Hawaii and California, two places I've had the priviledge to live in for periods of time..


5. I started work on my 2016 picture scrapbook a couple days ago. I am always a year behind getting those things done!!  I have 22 scrapbooks completed already. Here is one page I designed. It's of our trip to the beach.

  1. I have never found an interest in scrapbooking, but I guess my blog could be called a digital scrapbook. Maybe I should learn to make a blog post to look like a scrapbook page. A new challenge would be good for me.
    Beautiful Hibiscus!
    Have a wonderful week-end!

  5. I love scrapbooking, but I definitely have replaced it with my blog - it takes less space! Glad you have some bright days ahead - just like the hibiscus!

  7. That's some terrific goodies you have today, Latane! Your scrapbook page is wonderful. I know I am more aware of the importance of balance now that I'm old.

  8. CONGRATULATIONS on hearing things again!! I love scrapbooks too, and have made them for so many years now. I have about 50 I suppose. I finally had to stop making the big 12x12 ones, just nowhere to store them anymore. I make mini scrapbooks now. small, but you can still decorate them, just not as much. Much easier to keep and to move around and to share too. I love scrapbooks and photos, hopefully some descendants of ours will appreciate and be curious about them someday.

  9. such great news that you are hearing things properly again! The world is such a dark and terrible place at times so it is such a joy to hear when we are using our technology to improve peoples lives instead of ruin them!

    Thanks for joining in again with Five on Friday, I appreciate all of your support and hope you have a wonderful week

  11. Hearing is so important, glad you are getting it taken care of. I know all about the balance thing, when I had a bad ear infection a few days ago my balance got totally out of wack. Always feels good to get our hair taken care of too, I am going to get mine done this week. That is a gorgeous hibiscus you have shared. Your scrapbook page is lovely! Wishing you a great week Latane :)
