Hi, girls! I'm back in the bloggerhood! Welcome to my Monday! I had a great couple days off! We had one great family day and then I actually had a day all alone. I mean all day, too! I told the guys they could NOT come home- even if it started raining! ☺ More details about our "week end" later.
Well, this week, one of my favorite things is kittens! So much so that I decided to plant a pot full! ☺ They all "hog piled' in here one hot day! Funny! You'd think they'd suffocate! Here's my favorite but she'll just grow up to be a cat... Right?
Micah was able to get her to pose like this! Ha!
See this sweet gift bag? It's one of the things that helped me fall in love with Pink gingham and buttons! DIL Sara gave it to me a few Birthdays ago. Although I'm sure it was wonderful, I honestly can't remember what was in the bag but the bag has been used and used and used. It currently hangs on my brown bedroom wall but it's posing here in the white kitchen!
And now, here's what's blooming: Isn't this pretty? I have no idea what it is though! Any ideas girls? When we first moved in here, I thought they were Raspberry canes but then they bloomed in the Spring and I knew they weren't but WHAT are they?
These dogwoods did manage to stay in the vase on the front porch for a couple hours before the wind blew them out. I moved it in here to the computer room instead. After a couple weeks, they still look fine!
And here's my other Geranium that made it through the Winter in here. It's kind of leggy so I'll be pinching it back soon.
I have one Purple and one White Lilac bush. Neither bloomed too well this year because I went crazy with cutting it last year! Ooops! Oh well, it was worth it to have blossoms in several rooms of the house! ☺
For those of you wondering about Micah's Dr. appointment on Wed. here's an edited copy of a letter I sent Noelle:
Well, the doc went ahead and prescribed reading glasses for Micah although his vision is okay. His eyes are just strained- like mine. The Doc was very thorough but they still don't know what was causing the eye pain. I think it was a combination of things:
1. Eye strain
3. He had a short fall out of a tree. (Even though he didn't hit his head- falls or accidents often trigger other things.)
4. He's 11 and growing fast.
5. School work has become smaller and much more difficult this year.
See how helpful it is to be your own doctor? Ha-ha!
Micah is off from school until his glasses come in so he's pretty happy about that but he's not happy about having to wear reading glasses. Hopefully he'll outgrow them.
After Micah's morning eye appointment,we grabbed a Burger and headed for WV. to hunt for Antique shops or Flea markets! It was really fun! The hills were so puffy and green- a perfect day for a drive!
I was so excited to find something that I really, really liked and Bobby bought it for me! I'll do a post about it next week but I won't leave you in total suspense! It's a children's chenille bed spread in pastel colors with a giraffe on it! It's so cute! I actually hugged it several times and just got a general all around thrill about finding it and the shops!
I'm not sure what we'll be doing today. Maybe finish cleaning Micah's room... My craft room/ school room/ guest room is all tidy! Every bit of it is de-junked and organized! I'm going to try really hard to keep it that way. (What is it about a newly organized room that makes kids want to play in it and mess it up?) I still have some actual cleaning I want to do in there like wash the windows and shampoo the carpet but other than that- it's done!
I hope you all enjoy your week end! I'll soon be back on your schedule, too!
~ Big hug ~
