Sunday Snaps

Well, despite all my talk of positivity at the beginning of the year, I'm finding it hard to keep it going, if I'm honest.

Without whining on, the old skin problems are pretty bad at the moment, and, of course, I'm still without any Internet connection.

I feel that I'm missing out on all you've been getting up to, and I'm only sorry that I can't visit you as much as you know I want to!

I have taken a couple of photos with my mobile phone this week, so I am still able to post my Sunday Snaps.

This one is of Eli and Ruby when we were out for a walk in the week.

As you can see, they decided to paint themselves whilst doing some creative art work! Ruby looks as if she's in her own little dream world.

Have a good week everyone.

What's this? What skin problems? OH NO! I am sorry you are having internet problems...I hope they can be resolved soon.

Your grand kids are so precious and cute....I had to laugh at their little painted faces...what fun!

Oh, no. I'm sorry you're having a flare-up. These pictures are so "colorful". hehehe I'm sorry about the internet problems. My laptop is still messed up. BUT, my grandson was born Wed. evening. His name is William, so I have my own William and Cate. (He was named for my Dad, who was so excited.) I hope you can find something to control your skin.

Eli is getting so big, Thisisme, and Ruby does indeed look like she's daydreaming about something. Dear friend, I am so sorry about the various problems that you are having. At any given time there are several of my (and your) dear blog friends dealing with one crisis or another. Such is life. When it comes to commenting on my blog you are still batting a thousand and I appreciate it. However, I will understand if you can't make it over sometimes. The best scenario would be for you to overcome your tech problems soon because I know it will restore peace of mind to you. I remember you and I making new year resolutions to keep our blogging within reasonable limits this year but the truth is that I am much busier now than I have ever been and it's exhausting. I can, I will and I must make adjustments even if it takes until next year to implement them. Happy Sunday, dear Thisisme. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are always with you and your family.

Hi Thisisme! I saw you pop over her a little bit good to see you, as I've been thinking about you. Eli sure looks like he's getting taller, and, yes, Ruby appears to be off in her own world. But the self painting, I believe, is a healthy project!

I'm sorry you're feeling poorly, and your internet problem is NO WALK IN THE PARK! I'll say an extra prayer going your way. Stay strong...hugs to you!♥

P.S. I'm not bringing up the rear today-I'll be in your first 5! Great Sunday snaps!♫

BECKY said...

Cute kiddies and beautiful flowers on your header. Hope your flare up calms down, stress doesn't help.

Hi Diane,
I'm sorry that you're having troubles, but thank you for continuing to post. I have good intentions for staying upbeat, and I know how difficult it is to be positive all the time. I hope you are able to relax and recover.

And please God, would you fix my friend's internet connection, because I miss her terribly!

Gawgus things... said...

Did your skin come up bad when you lost internet connection??? Fingers crossed you'll get it sorted soon (i.e. before Thursday!! Only joking).
I loved these photos of Eli and Ruby, Ruby looks so serene...!

Eva Ason said...

Dear Diane, I'm so sorry to hear that your skin problem isn't getting any better. Adorable photo's you've put up today, they look so cute painting their own faces. And yes, Ruby looks a bit dreamy as if in her own world. I hope you will be back online soon, really miss having you around. HAve a fantastic Sunday my friend!

Big hugs

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

I'm so sorry that your skin problems are back again.

But! I can see how the stress of still not having any internet connection, could have contributed to it flaring up again. I can.

To be without internet connection for all this time, has to be very stressful. -sigh-

Don't remember if you ever said "the why" of this... Why no connection? Why you haven't gotten it back yet? I can imagine why it would take so long........

Please get someone to get to work on this issue! You need to be relieved of this stress!!!

Gentle hugs...

The grandkids are so cute - what a mess, I LOVE it. Those are the things you remember as a kid.

I am so sorry to hear about your skin flaring up again. I thought for sure it was feeling better. Hopefully you will be able to get to the doctor and see if they can do something. [Believe me, I do know how frustrating it is when they just keep shrugging their shoulders and there is no relief in sight. Prayers for you my friend.]

We're missing you, but await your return with much love and hugs. :) Take care my friend and you know where to find me if you need anything.

Odie Langley said...

Sure am sorry to know you are feeling down my sweet friend. I do hope you get some relief soon and spring is coming so that should help some.
There has been a large number of people getting that bad virus but luckily not in my family. Take care and know that we are pulling for you over here across the pond and sending you loving vibes.

Bouncin Barb said...

The new header is beautiful. Love the colors and the hope of spring. I'm sorry you are having a flare up. That really sucks. As for the little ones....well, you know I adore those cuties. And their Grandma!!! She's pretty awesome. Even without internet! I do miss you though!! Hugs.

Belle said...

It is hard to keep positive when you have health problems and pain. I'm so sorry. I do hope the doctors find some remedy.

I think you could enter the photos of Ruby with her paints in a contest! Oh my, she looks so funny and cute. Eli looks like he is having a ball. Take care, my friend.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

What a gorgeous new header and photos today, but I am so sorry that you are feeling low and cut off. Wretched skin problems.

Chatty Crone said...

I'm sorry for your skin flare ups - I do have some skin issues so I understand a little.

I love the little colorful kidlets.

What happened to your computer and how do you post? Hope it gets well soon.

Love, sandie

I miss you! I'm so sorry for the flare-ups with the skin. Does winter weather make it worse?

I love Ruby's cute little boots.

Sending love your way...

Get better!

Dearest Diane,

Your Engels are SO LOVELY, I smiled a lot♡♡♡ And they look dreaming under wonderful Buddha ornament.
Love you always, xoxo Miyako*

lyndylou said...

I am sorry to hear that you are struggling to stay positive. I know how hard it is when you are feeling so yucky.

It doesn't help that you have no internet access therefore no access to the world of blogging which you absolutely love and that also sucks, big time.

Thinking of you, keep smiling.

P.s. have you tried taking Aloe Vera drinking gel for your skin?

Sush said...

Oh Diane, I hope you get the skin problems figured out soon. Isn't it just awful all the things that slowly grow from minor problems to major over the years? I do hope you get your internet stuff working again and SOON! I've been having my own problems with internet not doing as it should. I seem to go up and down the stairs to turn it on and off a lot. Hmpf...and time outs right as I'm commenting so I have to start over. Then all I'm in the mood for is...cute post or whoa sorry your having a tough go of it...things like that.
Hopefully this will post as I seemed to have run on a bit and won't be able to repost this epistle!
Hugs and hope you are better soon, very soon...
