An Interesting Day

Saturday, October 29, 2011

As most of you know I have been down in the dumps for awhile in addition to not feeling well.
So. Bill forced me out of the house today to get my nails done. I went grumbling the whole way.Then i decided i could at least make it more interesting. I have always gotten the red except for the one time Bill and I were playing around and I got orange. So for fun I got this.

LOL I actually like it.
Then!!!!! There is a pet store right down from the nail place. So let me introduce you to Moxie


I wanted to get another to go with it but would have had to get bigger container. They had a black one with big eyes.I didn't want that. I wanted a big glass bowl and no aerators and stuff to mess with.
While we were there we decided to get Roxy a new toy as today is her birthday. We got her a toy that goes gobble and a heart shaped name tag.



And here is a new bloom
and here are my two grandsons and their girlfriends.One needs a haircut.I hate it long on him.I don't mind guys with long hair but it doesn't look good on him.
Then a pic of Abigail that is part b &w and part colored, It really shows how blue her eyes are.



Oh Another bird.This is unusual as they are mostly all white. This was strange looking

So it wasn't my normal boring day emoticon

    I love your new funky nails. Its good to mix them up once in a while.
I am also not a fan of long hair like that on guys no matter what the age but I have learned to not major on the minors. The heart is more important than the hair.

Have a great day!

  Hi Eleni........
Good for Bill!!!!! Getting out and about when I am in a Funk is the best thing I can do. He definitely knew what you needed. I love the nails and what is better than a new pet to talk to????? And if he gets bored just swimming, he can turn around and read Ken Follett.........have you rented the movie Pillars of the Earth yet? It really follows the book closely. I would highly recommend it.
I love the photo of Abigail. Was the color done on the computer? Her eyes are beautiful.
I went with a Greek boy in college and the picture of your grandson with the shorter hair reminds me of him. Those Greek boys are real heart-breakers.......even with longer hair.
I am tired today after all of our company last night. I am moving slower than usual.
Have a great Sunday.

Patti
P.S. Roxy and Ken share the same Birthday.........I will leave that one alone.

    I love your nails--they are pretty and fun! You sure have great looking GS and his hair looks fine to me--I bet they drive the girls crazy. Abigail is so sweet looking and probably is a really happy baby. I love the fact you celebrate your dog's birthday as we celebrate our dogs also. They add so much pleasure and fun to our lives even though their a pain once in awhile. Take care and I also think that's a pretty darn good looking fish--WTG!! Take Care.

Hugs,

Jill

    Ha...ha...you had QUITE the interesting day. You are rockin' those nails babe! They look really cute on you. The hippest grandma around...I bet your grandkids love em!

Great pics of the guys and I don't mind the long hair at all. The girls are quite cute too. They know how to pick those Greek gods...hee..hee!!

Roxy looks like she likes her toy but Bill has her heart. Look at her adoring him...so cute!

Are you reading any good books lately...how do those little butterflies work? I got a set for myself too...always do that with presents I REALLY like...I haven't tried them yet.

Hugs, hugs and MORE hugs and have a happy weekend...we are actually working tomorrow...bummer...picking up a leather sofa, loveseat and pine armoire...I hope we can manage it...I really should have gotten the professional mover for such big pieces..but this is a rush job...so you do what ya gotta do right? emoticon emoticon emoticon
Oh..forgot to tell you Moxie is pretty sweet looking and Abigail is adorable as usual.

You have the best looking family! emoticon

Nothing much going on. Rebekah,Felicia and Abigail came by for awhile.Rebekah needed to use my computer. Abigail still doesn't like me. Wouldn't let me hold her.We finally set her on card table in front of me with her mom holding on to her.She tolerated me. She is getting bigger and has those cute little chunky legs that babys get.Her hair is getting lighter and lighter. She is spoiled rotten LOL.It was nice to see her.She hopefully will do better next time I see her.
I am still having so much trouble with fluid. Hopefully it will give me a break soon. My feet actually ache from being swollen.
Here are a few pics I took thru window today..The rose is one I have been showing you. I can hardly believe it is same one that was almost dead in front of house. There is one bloomed on back side and still has 8 buds or more that haven't opened. I had Bill bring another to back and see how it does. I may move them all back here.







We were suppose to go get my nails done this afternoon but ended up taking an almost 3 hour nap instead.
My friend Kathy from Canada that I play word game with told me her temp was -3 last night. Mine was 74. Winters in Florida are the best.

    Beautiful pics, yes, winter in Florida, you are so fortunate.

Ahhhh, so sad when the little one don't take to you.

When I was young my aunt brought her husband around (before they were married) and I used to to cry and run to my room and say I hate red hair. Mom told me about it a few years ago and I felt so bad, he's such a good man so I can only imagine how awful I made him feel.

    Roses are so beautiful and I really want to grow some. I hope I can get my act together enough this year to get that done. It's funny that the baby doesn't "like you" but she will grow to love you for sure!

  Hi Eleni.......
I am so sorry to hear that the fluid is still giving you so much discomfort. Is there anything else that can be done? I am GLAD to hear that you are taking care of yourself and getting in some good naps.

Your flowers are SHOW-STOPPERS!!! What is the pink flower in the last picture?

Abigail sounds like she is going through that period of time where she only wants to be with her Mommy. It has NOTHING to do with you.

Tomorrow is Ken's Birthday, so we are having a family supper at 6. I made his favorite Carrot Cake. Our DIL's parents are here from Minnesota, so it will be a full house!!!

Have a good weekend.
Patti

    How'd you know I needed a hug? I have the boys tonight for a sleepover. We'll take their Mom out for a birthday breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then she'll bring them back 4-5 hours later and I'll keep them until Sunday evening. She has a Halloween party to go to. At least she's spending the night and I don't have to worry about her driving after partying. Tyler is much easier now that he's taking medicine. They did diagnose him with ADHD. Both her boys have ADHD. I think stuff runs in my side of the family. Have a restful night, my friend.

This is a green bush in front of house that gets these large clusters that we have never seen on this kind of bush. But most people keeps theirs trimmed small and we just let ours grow


And here are some butterflies.First is yellow sulfur and then a monarch. I need to put new blooms in butterfly garden.






Hope you had a good day.

  Hi Eleni........
My favorite single flower is a Calla Lily, but a very strong second is a single rose. They are both so perfect.
Our butterflies are becoming scarce. It is cooling off more now and they are starting their journeys to warmer climates. I went outside to water some petunias that are still blooming strong and as I turned to go back to the house, a big black cloud arrived overhead and the wind came up and the temperature felt like it fell about 15 degrees, and we had a cold rain that was almost sleet. It lasted about 5 minutes and the sun came out and the temps went back up again. It's part of the magic of Fall in Wisconsin. You never know what's coming next.
Later.......
Patti

  Hi Eleni.......
emoticon for your beautiful pictures. I have seen time-lapse professional pictures and yours are just as beautiful.
If you don't mind, I am going to enlarge your poster, "You can't scare me......I'm a mother!" Oh how true that is!!!!!!! As we both know. My youngest son stopped over on Saturday and complained of pain in both upper and lower teeth on his right side. He doesn't have dental insurance! We told him to go to our dentist to have a check-up so we could see what needs to be done. With all of the work he needs, it could be close to $2000!!! It just doesn't end!!!!!
Take care.

Have been tired today so I just took a lot of naps. Now watching DWTS. Nice thing about my laptop I can watch TV in living room and still play around on laptop.
DIL is doing well.
Hope you all had a good day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I do the same with my laptop. Glad your dil is healing. I wasn't surprised that Chaz got voted off, but I was expecting MaK might get if because of his tirade against Len. I like Mak but he DOES have a giant ego...to go along with his sexy body! I didn't do well with this challenge, should have sat it out. Still out of control...but today's a new day!

Continue to take care of yourself.
