HELLO Monday!


It's the beginning of a new week and still very cold here in NE Louisiana.  We had a great weekend here at our house in spite of the fact that I had some kind of strange bug and wasn't feeling very perky.  I had an awful back ache on Friday and just did not feel quite right.  When I woke up Sat. morning I had a horrible headache and was lightheaded and weak.  I tried to get up and it just wasn't working.  So, in the bed I stayed for a couple more hours and then I felt good enough to get up and get in the recliner.  I was so, so aggravated as I had big plans for a nice dinner on Saturday with both kids and their families.  And, that just was not going to happen.  But, my sweet DIL fixed dinner at her house for our daughter and her family and they enjoyed that time together without me and Poppa.  I did manage to get my makeup on and dressed for our Christmas pictures.  There was not going to be another weekend that we could do this, so I had to put my best face forward and I did.  And, they are some of the best pics we have ever taken.  We were all so pleased and now we're off to ordering our Christmas cards. And, I am feeling just fine this morning and still not sure what "bug " got a hold on me, but, at least it was short lived.   Let's say HELLO to a few things this morning...

HELLO amaryllis bulbs..........last week during our regular monthly Garden Club meeting we planted amaryllis bulbs in pots.  They were some of the biggest bulbs I had ever seen.  I decided to plant 6 pots to be given to friends to enjoy during the holiday season.  I always planted amaryllis when the kids were young and we would enjoy watching them grow and then finally sprout their gorgeous blooms.  It was fun to play in the dirt with the other club members and hopefully these big bulbs will produce some really big blooms by Christmas.

HELLO cutest "baby bump" ever......this is my beautiful DIL and her first "baby bump" picture.  She is due on Feb. 15th, so that makes her  exactly 6 months pregnant.  I think she has made the cutest Momma to be and just in case you are wondering, her hair is all natural, the color and the curls.  Isn't that hard to believe?  She is stopped and asked more times than you would imagine if it is natural and it is almost offensive to her.  Who could make hair that gorgeous besides the good Lord above?  I mean, really!  And, we can't wait to see if our little miracle baby girl is going to have that same hair color and curls.

HELLO silicone lids.......if you have not seen these little babies then you need to be introduced to them.  These are silicone lids by Charles Viancin and they are the handiest of items.  The two above fit on a coffee cup (place on top of mug to keep coffee hot) and the other fits on a 9X13 dish to hold in heat.  They form just enough suction to stay on securely.  I keep one of the little coffee mug tops in my purse to use when we eat out.  I cannot stand lukewarm/cold coffee and this helps so much.  I'm thinking they would make great Christmas gifts as well.  Amazon has any and all of the ones made and there's a lot and for the local folks, Arnett's has a nice selection.

  1. Good morning! Well, first I am so sorry you ended up not feeling well! Soo frustrating. I had that happen once when Melody was first married and came out to stay for a few days before Christmas. I could have just burst into tears. We had soo much planned, and I spent one whole day in bed (stomach flu) and the next couple not myself at all....it was a mess. So now it's always on my list of prayers as a trip is coming up...PLEASE Lord, let everyone be healthy. Anyway, glad you rallied around for your pictures though. Your dil's bump is so darling. Love seeing that. And her hair is just gorgeous! Yes, you might just get yourself a little red headed grand daughter! Hope the rest of your week is good!

  3. So glad you survived the bug you had over the weekend. I had an intestinal thing hit me early last week and death would have been welcome!

    But in spite of your 'down time' you managed to pull through and then produce yet another delightful blog post! You go, Girl!

  5. Being sick when you have an event planned is a real bummer. (we've had a few and it's no fun) Thankful that you were able to make the family photo and that you are better now
