Photo Book and a Video

My free photo book came in. For a free book other than a minimal shipping and handling fee, I was pretty pleased.

FreePrints Photo Book and FreePrints are apps on my phone. They are separate apps. At first I thought it was too good to be true. You get a certain amount of free photos a month and a free book soft cover 5X7 book each month. I tried it and have been using the prints for several months now. I print my photos that I want on my phone every two months.

The book was my first try at it. I didn't do any sorting or special things, I just tried the free quick upload. I would say if you are looking for a quick coffee table book, then this is an option. I did look up what some others had to say about it on the web. There books looked good and reasonably priced for the upgrades.

Now, mine might not look that great from the picture below, but that is because these pictures are of Sally from the 1990's. The picture quality from then is not the best. I could have edited them on my computer since it is linked to my phone.

Mother is still having diverticulitis issues. Her stomach got all flared up with the round of antibiotics she had to take for her sinuses this spring. She has a rough go of it lately. She is trying to behave because her bus trip with my aunt to Maine is this summer. She wants to go so badly. I have her an appointment with the doctor before the trip, but I could sure use some home remedies. Anybody out there with some ideas??? We go between constipation and diarrhea. 

I have been just working around the house this week , but with a few morning appointments to keep me sidetracked. I am trying to finish my Freedom cross stitch project this week. Not sure if I will make it or not. I am hopeful. I have a sampler I want to work on, but I am too close to the end to stop on the patriotic one. I have not decided if I am going to finish it myself or frame it. I had intended to do a patriotic finish and use it seasonally, but now I am thinking it might look good framed at the farmhouse. Decisions, decisions!

I am going to be brave and share my video that was done for the doctor's Facebook page that brought me back to life. I see everything wrong, but my family said they thought it was good. Either way, I hope it brings him as much success as he brought to me.

I did it first take, no do overs, etc. I think when you really believe what you are saying, passion comes through. That part is all is just the crooked nose, the eyebrow that was having a bad day, the dress that made me look fat, etc.

Does anyone else do that to themselves?

The link is below. I hope it works. It is found on the website for the Florida Health and Wellness Institute, so for those of you I have gotten to know well, here is me... (for others browsing, just pass on by).

Off to do some errands this morning and then try to work in my flower beds this afternoon.

Oh, one more thing...

I am going to share a quick photo of Paul Allen's girlfriend. Y'all know I love her. She is really shy and I have yet to get a photo. I am so afraid of running her off, and I like her. Did I say that already?

Anyway, she and Paul Allen planted a dogwood at his house. Hubby helped plant an orange tree the other afternoon. I guess he paid attention and decided he would try again. He sent this after he planted it. It is not probably what she would want me to share for a first time photo, but I can't help myself. She is just so cute.

Healthy and grateful,


  1. Great video Sandy!! You were so articulate! And you look great. Loved the picture of Paul Allen's girlfriend. She is a cutie pie. As for your mom, some probiotics is the only thing I can think of. I started taking Life 9 by Young Living and it has made a big difference in my gut health. I have had issues all my life and now it is just an occasional flare up. Thanks for the sweet comment on Smoky Mountain. I am taking it to Grimmwood where it will stay up all year. If I put that much work into it, I want to see it. I like your idea about taking Freedom to your farm house. I am working on Lady Freedom by Brenda Gervais. I plan to take it to GA and hope to finish it soon. I am going to have it framed to go with Freedom. Well I have chattered on long enough...have a blessed day.

    1. We are always harder on ourselves about our stitching, but from the pictures it looks great. I am pretty sure I am taking the Freedom one to the farmhouse. I think it will be a great fit there.
      I took Mama shopping today at the outlets. She was feeling better. Really the first day in awhile.

  2. Sandy,

    I watched the entire video and it was wonderful. I thought you looked and sounded just great and I surely applaud your bravery in doing it. My eyebrows are having a bad day on any given day so I could surely relate to what you said about that, although I noticed nothing at all amiss with yours. And the dress did not make you look fat in the least.

    The photo book looks wonderful! Someday when I come into the 21st century and get a phone, I will have to check out those apps.

    1. Thank you ---you are too kind. I guess we are always harder on ourselves. I was really a sick girl and he helped me so much, so this camera shy girl wanted to help him. His story is pretty amazing too. He walked away from being the head of the neurology department at a large medical center in Pensacola to do this. He is really dedicated to helping people get well and get to the root of the issue.
      As for the phones, I like them for the convenience of the camera for sure.


I am so glad you stopped by my little blog. Drop in again anytime.
