I Saw a Bright and Beautiful Light....

This past week
early one morning at the
beckoning of Michael's alarm clock
I awoke to the lowly state of
sub-human... My body racked with chills
as each and every one of my joints & muscles
screamed for mercy.
My throat closed up in protest at the very thought
that I might try to use
my vocal chords, which felt like blazing fire!!
In order to visit the restroom
one had to achingly fall from the bed
and slowly lurch across the swirling floor.
Michael took my temp and proclaimed
there was a fever...
for the next few days
the mattress and I became as one..
while deep down in my heart
I knew
in order to feel better
I would need
to wake up

Yet, I am happy to report
with a lot of love
and a little tenderness
thrown my way
I am almost 92% human again!
So, getting right down to brass taxes...
no excitement has filled my days, evenings or nights
and very few pictures have been taken this week..
As I prepare this blog..
Chloe guards me
(and the air conditioner)
to my left..

And to my right,
a young man
(who turned 5 mos. old on the 17th)


guarding is pretty hard work...

sometimes it's real hard to hold open your eyes...

..or hold your head up...

..."well, Chloe will wake me if she needs me"...


Before the flu
over took me
two more little
bowling shirts were
made for young Michael

one with monkeys


one with little elephants...
oh, fear not
ye Auburn fans
I have some "Aubie" fabric !!

and the bare beginnings of a growth chart..
cut out and sanded for Miss MG.
painting to come...


I stepped out this morning
and took a few of pictures from the deck

the woodland hydrangea is huge this year
and starting to bloom..
the fragrance from the deck is heavenly

If you look closely in the middle of the pond
(you may have to "blow up" the picture, by double clicking over it)
you can almost see several, not all,
but several of the fish that live there...
boy are they growing!


This week end
the puppies & I will be heading
to Virginia
to visit the children,
Michael W. will be having surgery this
coming Tuesday and Gamma will be there..
When "Mommy" & "Ba-Ba" go back
to work..
We will make and eat
"Apple Brown Betty"
and Banana Pudding..or
Mac and Cheese...
whatever that baby boys heart desires..
I'll make sure he gets..
I will also get to spend some quality time
with our baby girl, Carrie!


Felice updated their blog
last night with some wonderful pictures
from their Busch Garden visit..
Michael decided he loves roller coasters...
They had sent me a picture from the merry go round
which I will share

for more wonderful pictures of our little guy..
be sure and visit
and find out why kryptonite might just melt my heart!
As, I get ready to click the "post" tab...
both my puppies
continue to guard away!!!
... guarding can be hard work...

I didn't have an out of body experience..
I did see a bright and beautiful light..
however, following that
beckoning light...
I came to a K-Mart tire sale...
a blue light special!
