Happy Mothers Day and photo's

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Happy Mothers day to all you wonderful spark friends.I hope you had a lovely day.
Bill took me to Olive Garden for lunch and then to Walmart.Got 2 bouses .Wanted some undies but all of my size were sold.Then tried to find a bra with no sucess. Trying to buy a bra ranks up there with buying a swim suit.Or an absessed tooth.
My youngest daughter came by with her kids and brought me another orchid. LOL
Poor little Christopher fell asleep as soon as he sat down.They had spent all afternoon at the beach.
So here are some pics of Rebekah,Kayla,Felicia,Christopher and a haggard looking gramdma. I get my hair cut tomorrow

Gotta run Jesses Stone coming on

    I totally agree with your comparison. Buying a bra ranks right up there with an abscessed tooth! I hope your boobie squish goes well today! emoticon

    All your grandchildren are adorable! AND so tan!!!!

Funny, this morning I was just thinking I need to go buy new bra and undies myself. I don't enjoy bra shopping either. UGH!!

You have a great looking family. You are truly blessed.

We spent the day with DH's mom. We found out yesterday that she has stage 4 pancreatic cancer that has gone to her liver and lungs so it was a bittersweet day. But we all had a great time together.

    Sounds like a wonderful day! I can't wait for Jesse Stone, either! I send you wishes that you obviously already had...Happy Mother's Day! I had a quiet day, no visits from my crew, but I did get to speak with them. We both work this program and we wait to see what will happen. I am glad your DH took you shopping, even if you didn't get your new undies and bra. I had to go to the Macy's.com website...they have a Perfect Fit section where you can determine your size and style... cool... here's the link I think.

Family Photo's To Share

Saturday, May 08, 2010

My son Benjamin and his wife Tammy and children Tamara and Little Benjamin came over and brought me a dozen white roses.Tammy is expecting our #12 grandchild in the fall.
This is Benjamin and I.He is a big boy.Hard to believe he was a preemie that only weighed 4 #4 oz when he was born

This is my grand daughter Tamara who turns 15 (going on 30) tomorrow and little Ben
This is the roses they brought
Benjamin,Tammy and kids
Here are some of Bill's family .His nieces were leaving on a cruise out of Tampa so they meet in Tampa for a early breakfast.Too early for me

As you can see Landon was being a little stinker
And here is a front view of the desert rose I showed side view of yesterday

Another Short Blog with Photo's

Friday, May 07, 2010

Nothing much going on. Went to Home depot even tho I swore no more plants. Bill said they had some awesome plants and he would get me one instead of buying flowers for Mothers day. So being the dummy that I am I went to look. I ended up with 5 plants. Two pairs will go in one pot each but other I will put in a hanging pot. So I have more potting to do tomorrow. I will take a picture after I pot them.And I thought I was thru.
Here is a little vase of flowers I made from my butterfly garden

This one is not a clear picture.I was so aggravated. The yellow blur is a solid yellow butterfly that this is only 2nd pic I have gotten .I did get a good one last year. It rarely stops long enough to get a picture.

Ok Now I have to remember whats next. Oh My desert roses. First is the three plus a hibiscus is between them.This bed was cleared out and now has sand colored stone in it.
Then the biggest desert rose and a close up of it from the side. Then the only mostly white one that survived.

And one of my regular roses I may have already showed this one but I have had this for years
Ok I still have groceries to put up and it is supper time. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I will be happy if I just don't have a gain.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    Have a wonderful mother's day Eleni. If that butterfly doesn't let you take pics tell him he can't come back. Don't they remember the paper they have to sign about using any pics you take. I think that is standard if they want to graze on your plants. emoticon

You'll get one of those yellow butterflies I'm sure. I haven't seen any butterflies here yet. We brought in our hummingbird feeder because it's supposed to drop below freezing this weekend. I'm glad I don't have any flowers, they might've died with the frost.

Got A Lot of Yard Work Done

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

I can't believe how tough my grand daughter Brianna is.She is a tiny little skinny gal. And usually on the prissy side. She came early today to get started on yard. She wanted to make some money to buy her Mom Angel a gift for Sunday. I was going to have her do some light stuff. But she busted butt. Digging up old plants with big roots. She was working non stop doing some hard work for about 1 1/2 hours. Then we both went in pool to cool off.She then did some more extra stuff around house. Then did her normal stuff like making my bed and vacuuming. She even did all the sweeping before her Mom got here. Needless to say I paid her real good.
Now the guy from Bill's work is out there doing the list I had for him.Of course Bill is out there working too but Duffy is doing the hard stuff. Once the front is done we can call the guy to put down a lawn that Bill has always wanted.
Well all of my list for front yard is finished and part of back yard. He will come back next week and redo butterfly garden and put blocks in ground out at Feel Good Corner.
I have been doing ok with eating.Have got behind in my exercising. Haven't been getting up til late and then feel bad for a couple of hours. I do this every once in awhile and I don't push it. I did go out and trim one mexican sunflower while Brianna worked on other one. I usually feel best between 5 and 7 pm. Such is life.I just go with the flow.
Here is Brianna wearing a shirt that was mine when I was skinny.She couldn't believe Grandma was that small but I was.LOL

And my Wed visitor made me smile.She is getting to be very entertaining. here is Miss Haven

She likes my walker Here are a couple from outside today

That should be enough.
Hope you all had a good day.
I loved the ending on BL.I didn't know he was dating someone that was on BL.They looked so cute together.
Ok Enjoy your evening.

I got a small rose plant at bible study today for being a great coordinator. Not to mention the only one...another LOL.

  Hi there. You have the cutest grandchildren, isn't it fantastic when they get older and can help out in the yard? Bet you are so proud of every one of them, and isn't it wonderful to have the helper as well as the younger ones to watch grow up?
Your plants are doing so well, you got me started with our yard but must have planted the wrong things as they sre not doing so well.
Glad your eating is doing better, I just ate half of a yellow cake. Why? Have no idea except that it was so good, think your night eating devil is visiting here. Hope you are having a better day, and thank you for your frequent blogs.

Your photos are JUST beautiful...they bring me smiles. I'm glad I'm not the only one that has saved a few...ok..alot...of my "skinny" clothes. We had our Glory Days, didn't we, Kiddo?

    I didn't know either. I am glad they showed pictures of Sam and Stephanie when they met. I am glad Michael got to stay, maybe because he is a Chicago boy.
I can't believe Bill wants a lawn. When I move to AZ, natural rocks and sand. No mowing or watering!
I am not sure which is worse, those of us that were that small once trying to just reach a reasonable weight or those who were big all their lives.
Pictures of Haven are adorable, Brianna is beautiful as are the flowers and butterfly.

Are you going to have sod in the front or plant seed? When we moved in I wish we would've done the sod. We seeded instead and our backyard is beautiful but our front yard is patchy. It'll grow, eventually.

Post pictures once all the yard work is done!
