2nd post of the day - don't forget to check out my earlier post!!
Don'cha just love sunsets? I do. We've had some pretty freaky weather today and it's predicted to continue but, during a lull in the rain I nipped out and took these too - within moments of one another but one set to black and white and the other not - which one's nicest????
I've been indoors all day, trying to sift through some of the clutter and get rid of it, the problem is that it's remnants of peoples lives and not just any people but family and its really (really) hard to just get rid of it all. All the old photographs that previous generations have treasured. I am fortunate that my hubby's parents thought to include little notes on the reverse of many of them which has helped to identify the year, location, names, ages and sometimes all of them, which is going to make scrap booking them a whole lot easier. I know when I went through the loop with my own parents memories I was stumped on a number of them and we ended up not really keeping as many as we might otherwise. The reason for this sudden mission? About ten days ago we bought one of these whizzy all in one scanner, copier printers so it seemed like the perfect time to scan all of the photos on to our PC thus making it easier to part with the paper versions not used in the scrap book exercise but I did find it rather harrowing to read letters received by my late MIL telling her that her husband of only months was missing presumed captured in 1942. It has to be said that this is probably going to take me a while to get through and I may or may not share all of the layouts on this blog - some may be too personal. Wish me luck and a prevailing hanky!
