I also supervised another project that D did today. My MIL gave me a beautiful old iron bed. This bed has to be at least 50 years old. I had D paint it white. I am going to put it in one of the spear bedrooms. I want to purchase white bedding for this bed. I want everything in this room white with very little touches of robin egg blue. I will work on that. The fun is putting it all together.
All this supervising is exhausting; I am off to bed with a good book.

Not much else happening this week; just the usual. Do I have my garden in yet? NO! Meg and I tried to the other day but it was too hot and the weeds were too many. I don't like to sweat. So D has promised that he will help me this weekend. I will have to bake him something special. Bake that man a brownie and I can almost get him to do anything.

Had an awesome day with my friend H. Went to lunch at a new deli in town. Then went back to her house for a piece of a seven layer cake. Yummm. The cake was a gift from her son who is currently in the dog house. It was a peace offering. My guess is it didn't work but we are not foolish enough to not enjoy the cake. I think she should keep her whole family in the dog house for a while. See what else they bring home. Just sayin...

My Aunt Linda is so special to me. I am just in shock that she is going through this. It was not long ago that she was in the fight of her life with breast cancer. I know that she is a fighter and she will come through this but I just hate to see her go through it.
When I was a little girl I wanted to grow up and be just like her. She is the kind of aunt that treated you like you were the best thing that ever happen to her. I will be praying for her speedy recovery.
Well it is rainy again today. I really wanted to get my garden planted this week but the rain just keeps coming. Today I was going with my friend H to purchase all the plants but D said I am getting the horse before the cart. The garden is a mess; very wet and needs to be weeded. I told D to get busy the rain will end and if I have to I will mud those plants in. I need to have a garden. It is good for my soul.

So now that we know what direction we are headed. I will be getting ready for the summer. I have a garden to plant. That is my goal for the week.
But first I need to unpack and do a mountain of laundry. Where is the maid when I need her?!?

But at about 1 am I awoke with the stomach flu; was up all night. Spent mothers day in bed all day. Yuck! It was nice to be waited on by D though.
Today D and I will be leaving for the lake. Sometimes you just need to get away by ourselves to work on plan B for our lives. Need to make some really tough decisions. We do that best at the lake. Not sure when we will return; maybe a week or so. Will update when I return.
We need prayers,

Plan B for D and our lives is in full swing. I know the change will be good. It's just that change is not easy for me. It used to be but now that I am older I kinda like for things to calm down a bit.
Today is our family reunion at our house. Only putting final touch on everything this morning then sitting back and enjoying myself. I love family. I love entertaining at my home. SO much fun.

This is our Stephanie and her boyfriend Bill. Stephanie moved to southern Illinois to attend school. She has not been home in two years. Today was the best day ever when she pulled in the driveway. I have missed her so much. D and I tried to adopt her many years ago but was unable to because she would have been turning 18 at the time. This little detail didn't make a difference to us. She is our daughter and always will be.
We wrapped up the weekend with a Bar-B-Que at our house that Drew had for Meg's birthday. I love love love gatherings at my house. I could do this every weekend. Devin and Heather you were missed!
