Midweek post

Hi Everybody!

This will be another short post, my mouse has 'died' on me and I do not get on well without it!

I have an 'Inspired by' piece for AJJ, this time I was thinking about families. I used photos from my Mother and me.



And some photos from today's walk:






Today was market day:












Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  1. That page is beautiful Valerie. I love your spring flowers and colors you chose for it, and of course, you and your mother are so cute in those childhood photos. And you walk photos are also full of spring. Hope you get the mouse situation fixed. I like using one also. Have a wonderful middle of your week. hugs-Erika

  7. I don't use a mouse, but my touch pad is very touchy! Isn't it grand to be getting out and about in the fresh air again? Winter was longer than ever, I'm sure. Hugs, Deb

    1. Indeed, touch-pads are very touchy, especially when you have shaky hands like I do! Hae a wonderful day!

  11. Who can even remember a time without a mouse? You had better get yourself another one pronto, Valerie, or your world will shrink around you! Actually my iPad is slowly dying. I feel like I am watching a terminal patient slowly succumb, and I intend to get a new one. I'd like to buy it at the local Apple store, however, since they set the whole thing up for you, but our arch enemy COVID means that the store is closed at present so I will have to wait until lockdown ends. At least your mouse will not be expensive. Your views around town are delightful and the sun seems to have been shining on you. We were supposed to receive a little snow overnight if you can believe that. I refuse to look outside! It is mid week, hump day. There was a time when I was still working that would have been significant, but now one day is the same as the next. Take care. Stay safe. I hope your new mouse will be squeaking soon! Hugs and kisses, David.

    1. Exactly, we get used to things and can't do without them.I have ordered a new one from Amazon. Sorry about your Ipad, sooner or later new ones are necessary. We have had lots of sunny intervals this week. Soon I have to make my way to the vaccination centre at the Arena here. No sport of football there just now! The weather must be crazy if you got snow again. Have a great day, stay safe and well, hugs to you both!

  16. I love your market day. I long for those again! And another lovely art piece. Good luck with the mouse. I have the same relationship with mine -- so much better than the laptop keyboard!

  20. I can't believe I missed this post, dear. It was truly an oversight. I am having troubles with both my mouse and keyboard. They only work in a very specific spot. Move the keyboard and the mouse has to be placed in a certain spot for the words to come. Scott got frustrated the last time he was here. He said that would be my birthday present. I hope they are wireless, though. Knowing Scott, he would rather be wired and tied down.

    LOVE the beauty you shared with us for your journal entry. Childhood memories are wonderful. And you got some great photos of the market and your town, too. LOVED the chickens. Thanks for yet another entry honoring Eileen's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear.

    1. Thanks E! Happy Birthday! I like to be free, too, but Scott is right, the wired way is better and safer!

  22. Your journal page is stunning Valerie, beautifully done! There is no way I can use my chromebook without a mouse - it has one of those scrolling things but it needs a much lighter touch than mine lol. Have a great day xx

  26. Such a pretty page! The pastel colours and images look so amazing and it's a lovely way to remember family too - perfect 😁. So many gorgeous photos but those metal chickens caught my eye, what a delight - cluck, cluck, cluck! Take care and happy wishes! Hugs, Jo x

    1. Thanks Jo. Those metal chickens caught my eye, too, but were too expensive. Stil, I've got a photo of them! Happy weekend, cluck, cluck!

  27. Oh dear, I am so glad I am not the only one who does not like the 'pad' thing on the computer - I need a mouse. I hope you get it fixed or a new one before too long. I have two so that as soon as one runs out it can go on charge and I can use the other one.
    That is such a pretty journal page. I do like the way you have put the photograph at an angle and then framed it with those pretty blooms. Such pretty pastel shades too.
    Thank you for the walk again, I do enjoy your photographs, you are a very accomplished photographer.
    Hugs, Neet x
