Happy Valentine’s Day
A Thankfully Imperfect Woman!
ps…This is in our garage, just outside the door into the house. It’s the middle of winter, so the heater had to be included…and then of course for a winter picnic you’ll need the thermos!
My daughter found this great lamp and spray painted it pink!
I had my yearly checkup the other day. They did all the basics…
First I had my blood pressure taken.
Dr. Nicole said: “Is it getting tight?” This, as she was pumping and pumping and pumping the cuff.
Next she said: “Now I need to chseck yow eyes and eaws.”
“Yowr eyes awr good.”
Right ear: “This eaw is doughty.”
Left ear: “This eaw isn’t doughty…but it’s kind of haiwy.”
(To which I said, rather surprised…”WHAT!?!”)
She went on to explain…”Fwom yowr haiw.”
Then it was time to check my heart.
She asked first “Whearw is yow haught?”
Then she listened very intently and proclaimed “Yowr haught is stwong and healthy.”
“Now I need to give yow a sot.”
I pretended to look worried and she said, “Sots let yow be helfy. Sots have medicine.”
Then she checked my temperature and said “Yow mouf is kind of sad.”
Which of course made me smile…
so I gave her a hug.
I love my little daycare 3 yr old Doctor.
She makes me smile.
Ps…Be sure to clean your ears before your next checkup!
May the New Year bring you love in your heart, joy for your soul, and peace in your mind.
May you enjoy the little moments.
May you look for the good in everyone.
And may you let yourself have silly moments.
Laugh at yourself…
and leave the rest to God.
ps…the picture is of my daughter Alex (1996ish) taking a break from celebrating!
By now, you’ve seen most of my house, all decorated for Christmas…
The bedrooms, dressing room, and bathrooms only get a few touches of Christmas, so they really don’t need their own post.
But the dining room…now the dining room is another story.
For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to put a (faux) Christmas tree in there.
I’ve had the perfect plan.
I’d collected ornaments from Goodwill and garage sales.
I’d picked up a Christmas tree from a friend who had decided to give it away.
But last year, sadly, I was just too sick to get all my decorations up, and that tree stayed in the basement.
But this year…
This year is different.
Without further ado, take a look at my dining room Christmas. A moment of silence to appreciate the beauty…
I could stand here and look at it all day. Especially from this view…
Today brings us to my Front Porch.
Let me explain, before you see the photos, this is the area where most everything gets put when we don’t know where else to put it.
Well…and it holds all the items that I find that I want to do a project with…that’s where it really gets messy.
So today’s post is real…like really real.
Crazy messy, wildly overflowing, perfectly imperfect real. Read more
