Odds and Ends

In case there are some of you out there that must know what the mysterious post-it note, said, Mal solved the issue.

Thanks Mal!  So, I got right to it today and stripped the pillow covers, under Bumby's strict supervision...

And cleaned the couch! Now, it will be nice for our visiting family members next week.

And just in case you think I've been slacking, I tackled another chalk paint project.

No one worry or scold me, I wore a mask this time - no wheezing!

Will show you another time the results.  Still trying to decide if I like how it turned out or not - need to live with it awhile before going public.

Also, look at this rose on my father's rose bush! Two colors on one bud.  I had never seen this before, but my friend, CG had and she even had a name for it.  What was it again CG?

We saw Alice and her family last night and she was delighted with all the kind comments on the post I did on her this week.  She is ready to tackle the next part of her recovery.

Lastly,  Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in my life.
  Especially my wonderful MIL, Orlando Grandma. 
 Enjoy your stay at the beach and we will see you when you get back home!

I've seen two colors on one azalea bush before - a light pink George Tabor with a branch that had dark fuschia blossoms on it. The guy at the nursery said the branch was known as a sport. a good one at that I guess. :-) Happy Mother's Day, Ann.

Just wondering how long those couches will be clean for? Do you count pet hair as clean still when the company comes?

ps. Mom is loving the flowers and just because we have been such slackers. Mom's email is

Ok I have to tell you that this post made me crack up! Moments after I was practically sobbing from Alice's story. Way to play on the heartstrings SIL.

I have a praise in that our home has officially sold. I now have just 32 to days to find a home, pack and move. A little pressure? :) We put a bid on a home yesterday that will give "The Money Pit" a run for it's money.
I wanted to let you know that I so appreciate all of your support and kind comments and if I am absent the next few weeks from your blog please know I will return soon.

For whomever you nurture, have a happy and blessed Mother's Day.
