New Rugs for the Kitchen

I love anything with bees on it.  I found this bee pillow on-line at Ballard Designs.  I'm using it in the living room.

Now they have rugs that match the pillow and my daughter bought me this one for Mother's Day.  I was going to put it in my bathroom but decided it looked better in front of the kitchen sink.  (Ignore the drying dishes).

I really liked it so I bought myself the larger one to use by the stove.

And the best part is they are on sale!!  Can't beat that.

Until next time,

A Peak at the Garden

Today I worked in my yard for an hour or so. I am not quiet up to doing much more than that.

A few weeks ago when I was pretty down I decided that if I spent a little money I might feel  Sooooo, I bought myself an iPad. Today I took it into the garden and snapped a few pictures.

I have several green tomatoes but no red ones yet.

The oak leaf hydrangea is in full bloom.

This mophead hydrangea has never bloomed before.  I guess it likes to be neglected.

And speaking of neglect.  This is what a potager looks like when the gardener is battling cancer.  To say I have a few weeds to pull is an understatement.  I will just do what I can when I can.  There is always next year.

Until next time,

Happy Mothers Day

Today we went to my Mother's house to celebrate Mothers Day. 

From left to right around the table - my son-in-law(married to youngest daughter), my mother, me in the shadow, my husband, my oldest daughter, my oldest daughter's partner, my oldest granddaughter, my youngest daughter and my youngest granddaughter.

We are a family for girls.  All the guys married into the family.

We arrived at mothers at 10:30am.  We all pitched in and cooked a wonderful brunch of ham, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes, and big flaky biscuits with jelly.  And we did have a few healthy items, strawberries, blueberries and cantaloupe. 

This is the first day I have felt like I am partially normal.  My radiation burns were pretty severe and I still have to bandage myself before I leave the house. You can tell in the picture that I have my right shoulder raised.  That is because the burns are under my arm and I have to keep my arm slightly raised. 

Anyway, I wanted to wish all mothers everywhere happy mothers day.  It has been a very fun day for me.  I am improving every day and hope to get back into my garden soon.

Until next time,
