Wednesday freebie zip 9 Picasso Lilies & Promises

This is a simple one. I saw this silhouette of a kiss and thought it would make a nice background for photos of that first kiss as Mr. & Mrs.
News today just depressing! Suicide bombers in Turkey. Fires destroying so much of our west coast. Flooding on east coast. The center isn't holding!

Newlywed troubles

Quick post about our newlyweds. Their streak of bad luck hasn't ended yet. Just got word that last night Berkeley was out in the Corolla and when she made a left turn, another woman ran through a red light and hit her. The car is totaled. No witnesses last night. B seems to be okay but is being looked at by doctors where Jeremy works. I warned against saying too soon that all is well. I learned the hard way when a woman rear ended me years ago. Had a neck sprain and her insurance paid for car repairs and some physical therapy. I continued to have some neck pain that I was later told was probably from the accident, plus they think that is what triggered my fibromyalgia!

It's day 6 of the Picasso Lilies & Promises freebie

I'm expecting 2 of our grandchildren any minute and wish I didn't feel so dragged out. I know it is the effect of the antiviral medication but I really need some energy! My husband is cooking beef stroganoff (hamburger really) for the kids and I'll visit with them until after dinner. There is a Bluegrass event tonight that he will be taking them to. Larkin really enjoys the music and danced all night when he last took her along. Malachai plays cello at school so John thinks he will enjoy the bass players tonight. Hope they have a good time. Me? I'm grateful hubby has someone to go with him, because I don't like much Bluegrass music, especially not what he calls the "high lonesome" vocals. That grates on my nerves. Ill have a few hours of quiet, maybe watch a Netflix movie while doing some laundry.
The newlyweds are back in Pennsylvania after a honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands. They stayed in a villa in the area called The Baths on Virgin Gorda. My son called me today, knowing I'd be upset by a comment on their FB page about broken ribs. Whose? How? He said that the night of the wedding, when just a few people were around, his new BIL accidentally stepped on his foot. His big toe went numb but Jeremy thought it was just a passing thing. He learned yesterday that the tip was fractured. This information came when he was examined by the doctor where he works for chest pain. It seems he had been climbing some huge rocks at The Baths. Weathered by the water, there were few hand/foot holds. He was fine going up but had to press himself against the boulder as he tried to climb down. He felt something pop. Turns out he broke 3 ribs! And Berkeley lost her wedding band, handmade in Ireland, in the surf. However, despite all this, they had a great time. Tired now, they will spend July packing and getting ready to move to another townhouse in August. Jeremy goes back to his usual schedule at Patient First and Berkeley does all the name change stuff and waits to hear when she can take her state certification test as a laboratory technician.
Today's zip of Picasso Lilies & Promises is a stacked paper, 2 trim and small floral deco.

More from Picasso Lilies & Promises

Shingles seem to be fading a bit so that means antiviral is working! Felt well enough to do a quick Costco run for just a few things. Hubby made meatballs and Italian sausage to go in spaghetti tonight - yum! I picked up some key lime cupcakes at Costco for dessert. Haven't tried them before so hoping they are good.
Today another purple paper, a corner ribbon, and a small heart deco.

Day 4 of free Picasso Lilies & Promises

Waiting on lab work to see if my liver enzymes leveled out. If they have, I can take something for the pain in my hip. Made an experimental page using a background from this new kit, a photo from the deck at the beach house and a photo of Jeremy with his Dad. Not sure if I like this or not. Jeremy's hair has been blown into a point in front by wind - funny looking!
Today's zip is in the soft cornflower/sand color of the guy's shirts.
