A pretty day

I just wanted to share a couple pictures that my daughter Kristy took. All my girls are doing project 365 in photos. They are really quite beautiful. Some days they have lots of pictures some days they struggle. But good for them for keeping up with it. They all have their photo's on flicker.
These pictures are of the flowers that we planted last weekend. They are so pretty. I love that Kristy got the water droplets on these flowers.
My day was pretty same ol' same ol'.
I took Kristy to the doctor about her wrist. We went to the doctor on call. No sooner did we sit down and they called her name.
The doctor figures that she has a bad sprain. It could take up to 3 or 4 weeks to feel better. Kristy did have to go for x-rays just to make sure nothing was broken.
As we were waiting for her to get called for the x-rays, we had a longer wait. I actually got to crochet another butterfly. I saw my aunt Carol and uncle Bill there. They are not really my aunt and uncle but they were the closest to relatives that we had here. So I got to catch up with them.
On the way out of the clinic, I ran into my girlfriend Shirley. Actually she is more like a sister to me. Her father and mine both did a lot of work out of town. Her parents were divorced so she lived with us while her father was away. I loved it. It was like having your best friend living with you.
Funny thing is, the last time I saw her was at the clinic a month ago. Teehee. You know your getting old when your social life consists of seeing your friends and family when you visit your doctor LOL.

I went and picked up my dad some groceries. I also brought him 2 fans as his were starting to get hot if he ran them for to long.
The girls went with me. He loves to see them. Even if they do end up teasing each other. My dad is always trying to give the girls money for helping bring up his groceries. My girls always refuse the money. He jokingly threatens them that if they don't take it he'll get after them. Then they tease him by saying, You'll have to catch me, then you'll at least get in some exercise. LOL.

The girls hair straightener died on them last night. This is the 3rd CHI straightener that we have had. Hubby took it apart. I guess it gets so hot that eventually the on/off switch melts inside. This happened to our last one as well. So we went to Chatters and bought a different brand. At least this one has a 5 yr warranty not a 1 yr like the CHI. These things are pricey.
I use it also. My hair looks so bad if I don't straighten it. It is all fuzzy and kinky. Not a pretty sight LOL.

I phoned my girlfriend Debbie tonight. I haven't talked to her in a long while. We used to get together every Tuesday and just go to the mall or go for hot chocolate for me, tea for her. But she has been swamped with work and life just seemed to get in the way. Sad as this shouldn't happen, but it does.
Every year Debbie and I go away. We have gone to Winnipeg a few times, Duluth more than a few times, one year we went to see her sister in Edmonton. But the last 3 years we have rented a cabin or suite and scrapbook for 3 days straight. The first two years we went here and stayed in the studio condo. It is only about a 3 hour drive over the border to the States. Last year we stayed here and stayed in the Loon's Nest.This is only a half hour away and on our side of the border. No matter where we go our main concern is if the kitchen table is big enough for our scrapbooking supplies teehee. I live for this time with her. No matter how much or little I see of my friend Debbie, its like we were never apart. We can talk for hours and vent about everything.

Well that is about all of my day today. I did get 2 loads of laundry washed and hung up on the line. It turned out to be a beautiful day.

Hope your Monday was a smooth one.



  1. Those flowers are gorgeous! When I go out on my deck and see my Lilacs bloomin it makes me think of you:)

    My straightner is a BABYLISS PRO and they LAST! It's about $200 but they last years. But don't turn it up too high, you'll scorch your hair. I did that and had to cut about 8" off. Hehe good thing my hair grown quick!

    Hey, don't you give kids lot's of ice cream for sprained wrists?

  2. Project 365.. AhhhhhhhGRgghhhhh...

    Glad to hear it was only a sprain. Still sounds OUCHIE.

    I have a CHI iron that I've had for about a year now, and I love it. I don't use it often, though....maybe that's why it's still alive. LOL.
