I could have never done it all on my own! Thanks Son!
I have to also tell you a little story. Our friends that were here from Wisconsin, Mary's favorite saying is "It is a God thing". Well, I have a God thing to share. I know most of you know that I have been suffering with stomach issues on my form of chemo. My friend Kathy in Michigan the other night saw on Mystery Diagnosis a show and called and said...I know what is wrong with you. So I googled it, and sure enough, it sounded like my problem. I called the oncologist and asked if he would just look it up and see if he thought the treatment might help. We have tried everything else. He said, sure, let's give it a try. That was Friday. My stomach on this new drug has been fine since.
So, Mary, it was a God thing! He had Kathy see that show and tell me. I am constantly amazed.

Please, Please let it get under 1oo degrees.....
Ok, I am done now! At least for NOW.
I fell in love with how the black looks on the runner. Nothing is new. The K plate is from Kirkland and under the small cloche is a black K. Those are glittered pears in the apothecary jar. The little pumpkin is a soup bowl and inside the black cloche is a darling basket with some wine corks.

Although I have these salts...they were 25 cents each...so I could not let them pass....

Last year after Thanksgiving I gave a tablecloth to her to make shorter for my table. She is a wonderful seamstress. She gave it to me a few weeks ago - I had totally forgotten. She asked me what was I going to do with the extra fabric because she could make a runner. I gave her the fabric not realizing the runner was for me!
It is stunning. The back is the tablecloth fabric as well as the binding. I am crazy about it.

Today took some jewelry in to my jeweler to get cleaned....went to Costco, to pick up a certain sale item...that my hubs didn't realize isn't on sale until Thursday.....
Picked up jewelry. Looks clean....got on freeway...something doesn't look right with one of my rings - a favorite by the way.....got home, got out the loop, diamond missing. Called jeweler...come back tomorrow - 30 mile trip and we will fix it.
Asked hubby to vacuum valances in family room. He is nice and tall, no problem...all done except the patio door. Almost done....valance falls to floor....hooks in wall are broke....extensions fall out, curtain on floor....find one extension...cannot find the other.....no, really, cannot find it.
What a day!
The doors are locked. I am not going out anymore today....I just can't chance it!
When my son was about 10 my husband let him watch Jaws. We won't go into the debate about that decision that followed, however, our son was definately left with some memories!! Every time we saw a body of water, be it a lake, a river, a pond....he would ask his dad...."Is that salty water Dad?"
He also had a toy shark that he used to play with in the tub. When I went to Cali I found another shark and took it to the ocean when we went to play. Karen took pictures of it.
So son (who is now almost 30).....yep, this is salty water..watch out for sharks!!

and I can't go......well, I shouldn't, but I am going to sneak in anyways, cuz I don't like missing anything...no really, I gotta know what is going on!!
It is my destiny!!
Birds....surely there are birds in a barnyard....
Mini milk bottles....oh, yeah, I forgot - animals....well, if there is milk shouldn't one have a cow...but alas, no cow!
yep, Ceekay is feeling very deprived ( insert sobbing sounds here) ......the barnyard is sadly lacking here.....which is really surprising, cuz I know I have heard my hubs say many times, Shut the door!!! were you raised in a barn???

My hubs made Breakfast Pizza...and we laughed and laughed....and I got lots of hugging time with the Grands....the best!
Does anyone else adore the new Geico commercial with Max the Pig? I am telling you, I will stop what I am doing to go watch that commercial....You have got to see it!!
