Fresh-Cut Friday

Oh! Hello there!
Welcome to the 31st Fresh-Cut Friday. 
Let's get started.

 This is just a simple hodgepodge of flowers. 
I love to buy myself flowers.... but I have to say that when others bring you flowers it 
means so much more.
 My friend brought me these sweet daffodils. I think that I will start taking flowers to people when they invite us to dinner or what not. I love that custom.
 These are so fragrant!
 These are some little daisies that I pulled out of another arrangment that was finished.
 I was looking at some past photos... I am surprised at how often I reach for an old 
mason jar for a little bouquet.

So, now it is your turn. I can't wait to see your arrangements. Anything involving your flowers is a perfect addition. And sense this is only a monthly link party,  please feel to use past posts. 

Have fun now!

I will be linking to these parties:
Show and Tell Friday
Feathered Nest Friday
Home Sweet Home

Shall we have Fresh-Cut Friday this week?

Oh! Yes! My friends! I think we shall!

Please join in, won't you? 
Share any pretty flowers that you might have. It can be an old post, it can be an arrangement, 
or it can be from (or in) your garden. Really the only caviat is that you should use fresh flowers. 
I will have the linky tool up at about 7pm Phoenix time and it will remain available till Monday night. 
See you then!

2 Cookies and A Cappuccino

Hey There!
How you all doin'?

Just a little self indulgent this evening.... 
I haven't really been taking care of things around the house like I should. 
I find that by the time I get home from work I am exhausted. And of course we spend a lot
of my free time with mom and helping her with all of her life adjustments. Oh well! Such is 

When I do have a couple of minutes I find that it is so easy to pick up a 
book or my knitting or crochet. It doesn't take to much thought and I find that 
I just fall in to them. I had never used these tiny needles before. (size 5) They are so light and easy to carry. I'm having fun just doing plan knitting and this yarn is wonderful to. You don't even have to think or count.... just knit!  It's almost like therapy.  I picked the pretty yarn up at JoAnn's a week ago. It's called Serenity Garden Yarn. Its from the Deborah Norville collection. 

Ya... that's all for now.

Love and Thank You!

Hi everyone! 
I'm still here. 
Life has changed and we are finding a new normal.

I just wanted to send out some love and big thank yous for all the sweet thoughts and prayers.
You guys are amazing.
I wish I could hug each and everyone of you. 

We are wading thru tons of documents and of course photos. 
These are a couple of my favorites. 

 This is my dad and my aunt...probably late 1930's. 
Isn't it just the cutest picture?! 
Cracks! me! up!

And of course dad as a sailor. Isn't he so cute! 

Spending lots of time helping mom start life over again. 
It's a hard thing to do after 53 years of marriage...

Talk to you soon!
