Everyone who’s tired of green bean fries, raise your hand. Yes, I see those hands. Did you think I’d ever get off the green bean fries?
I can hardly believe it’s been almost two full months since I’ve posted a thing on this blog. I’ve been way overwhelmed by life these days. And blogging just wasn’t at the top of the list. But I’ve missed it so much. I’ve missed all of you!
I considered just totally catching you up in one big blog post. With all 12,698 pics that I’ve taken over the last two months with blogging in mind. But somewhere along about pic number 3,486, I figured I’d lose you. So instead I think I’ll stretch them out over multiple days. Providing that I don’t get overwhelmed by life again. Which could happen at any moment.
The day after I returned from Canada, my Dear Daddy went into the hospital for 5 days. Then he was home for a couple of weeks and then back in the hospital for 3 more weeks. Somewhere in there my Dear Sis from Illinois, Dear Niece and Dear Great-Niece and Nephew came for a 2 week visit. I have pics of all the fun we had in between hospital visits to sit with Dear Dad. Maybe you’ll even get to see some of them! Provided overwhelming life doesn’t come in and take over again…. yada, yada, yada……
Somewhere in the midst of all those pics are some from a very special baby shower. Here’s a sneak peak at the Mama-to-be as she opened her gifts…..
Brooke was so cute and the shower was fabulous. I can’t wait for you to see the pics of the food! As well as all the fabulous gifts and the beautiful ladies who attended. I’m really hoping to show you all the festivities before the baby arrives. I think I still have a month.
This week I had planned to be in Canada with Dear Hubby again. But sweet Miss Kitty is sick! And I just couldn’t expect my cat sitter to give her a pill every day. I wasn’t sure I could handle that one myself.
We are bonding, Miss Kitty and I. This picture is actually an older one. Taken about 3 months ago and before she lost way too much weight. Perhaps as much as 5 lbs. She had pretty much stopped eating for some reason. But the Vet couldn’t find anything seriously wrong. So, crazy cat lady that I am, I’m feeding her with a syringe. To try to jump start her back into eating again. And we are having a great time in our Kitty Animal Hospital, better known as My Home. And we are seriously bonding. When Dear Hubby comes home, she quite possibly might look at him and say, “Who are you?”
Considering that she hissed at me for a whole year after Dear Hubby brought her home, we’ve come a long way. You can see more pics of MK (and Boo) here:
Or just click on the “Miss Kitty” category in the right column. I know she’ll love knowing that you all are thinking about her. And saying a quick prayer that she will be OK again soon.
If you’re in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by the “hospital” for a visit. Boo says, “Bring catnip.”
He’s just sure that’s exactly what Miss Kitty needs.
Glad to be back in the blogging saddle again,
Somehow we went from expecting 12,968 pics, to getting 2 (two)! Never mind, I’ll take whatever I can get!! Loved knowing that you’ve found a few minutes for yourself, to blog again. It’s good for the soul. See you next week :-)!!
Good to see you at the Quilt Show Meeting Monday and really have missed your blog, but totally understand when life throws those “how about this” times at you! Linda Sue Johnson
Poor Miss Kitty, but she is blessed to have such a faithful “Mom” taking care of her. Brook is so cute, she looks like her Mama. Can’t wait for more blogging…..
This is very strange. Just yesterday (Tuesday), I went to your blogsite to make sure I hadn’t missed recent posts. I like to hear from you. So sorry about Miss Kitty and your Dear Dad. Both are in my prayers. And so are you.
Miss Kitty is so lucky to have you providing round-the-clock intensive nursing care!! What a sweet little face she has. Baxter agrees with Boo — maybe she needs some catnip! 😉
Brooke is such a sweet bundle of cuteness! Glad to hear that MK is purring again. 🙂
Welcome back! I’ve missed you! Hope DD is doing better.
My Oh My Barb, I hope by now, your dear family & Miss Kitty-at home and Up North- are doing better!!! Hugs…
