Where have you been?


My mother went in for minor surgery on Wednesday. She was supposed to be in and out on the same day, so I waited to hear from her…and waited…and waited. I knew she’d had anesthesia; I figured it was taking a long time to wear off so she hadn’t been released yet.  Finally, my aunt called me to tell me that the minor surgery had turned into something a little more major (that’s all I’ll tell you, due to Blogger-Patient confidentiality laws) and she would be the hospital for a few days.

I called the Nurse’s station, and they told me Mama was resting comfortably and doing well. I got to talk to her the next morning; and she sounded progressively better each time I called her. She went home this afternoon, and is already sounding like her cheerful self again. Best of all, she still gets to come visit me in three weeks two weeks and six days. Yay!

So, that’s been on my mind. Aside form that, nothing else happened this week. We had a few excellent thunderstorms; Hubs worked a few nights; I organized and danced– hardly deserving of a bog post. Tomorrow will be busier– going to the early church service because I have a photoshoot in the afternoon; somewhere in there, I have to do my Earth-Day cleanup. 🙂

That’s all for now, my dears. I’ve got some laundry to fold and some banana bread to bake. In the meantime, here’s a picture that always gives me a grin:

I can't remember where I found this, other than "somewhere on tumblr."

Enjoy your Saturday!

Hello, friends! Sorry I haven’t blogged much. It’s not that I’ve forgotten! I’ve been meaning to tell you all about my CNA training experience and how that all ended; and about our faux-garden and compost experiment and new recipes and whatnot, but…

…it’s been really gorgeous outside, so when I’m not tending to housework or cooking I’m outdoors enjoying the perfect weather. Look, you guys, it’s only a matter time before it becomes hotter than the inner sanctum of hell here in Texas. I need to enjoy 80-degree weather while I can.

…and while I’m doing that, here are some articles that I loved and wanted to share with you. Enjoy!

Mom Puts 7-Year Old on a Diet in the Worst Vogue Article Ever from jezebel (P.S. I read the article in Vogue and was horrified at the mother’s “methods.” I felt so terribly for the child; can only imagine how this experience is going to haunt her for years to come)

So much from Barefoot Foodie


That’s all for now. Have a great weekend!
