Through My Back Door! Come in and have a cup of coffee. Yes, I too, am drinking with you this morning and that in itself is good. I missed my coffee! I want to share a few good things with you. As most of you know I was sick for several days, with a diverticulitis attack. NOT good!lol During that a fellow blogger came into town and we were trying to meet. I couldn't for a few days and worried if I was going to be able too. God is good and we met on Wednesday of last week. We went to Corner Antiques and down to the Hen. (Yes, she found something she wanted) Her daughter Carrie and Deb were along too.
Simply Country Seasons. She is from Ohio and we met on the TPP forum. She was going through chemo the same time Amanda was and we all prayed hard for one another. She looks great and is such a wonderful person. I know this sounds trite, but it was like all of us had known one another forever. We have so much in common, other than decorating. Carrie took the pictures and didn't get in any. She is a beautiful girl. Linda, her husband, her daughter and her family was down here on a vacation to Norris Lake. We visited for a long while. We ate lunch at one of mine and Debs favorite places in Clinton. Percadillies. Darlene makes wonderful chicken salad and desserts.
We will see them again as they live close to my friends we visit in Ohio.
On Tuesday Deb called me and said, "How bad would it rock your world if we left for Beth's Thursday or Friday?". I was to have cards here on Wednesday night and dominoes here on Thursday. Plus I had to drive to Morristown, an hour each way to take Dasko to doggy camp. My reply was,"Not at all." I had cards, but had to cancel dominoes to take Dasko. The reason for the sudden trip was Amelia was going out of the isolette and into another bed in the NICU, which meant, grandparents could now go in and hold her! So we took off on Friday and got home last night. What an amazing moment when I first saw her, I can't describe the feeling I had. She is beautiful! So tiny but so perfect. I wanted to fall on my knees in that NICU and thank God for her.
When I travel with my children, we always hit the antique shops and this time was no different. We knew Beth and Ryan wouldn't be home, so we took our sweet time going. (This was fine with me since I wasn't feeling up to par, like now) Deb and Michael found some wonderful things. One which we will pick up next time we go. (We were in Debs little Lincoln, not Michael's Flex). I bought a small wood bowl with beautiful patina, but forgot to take a picture. However, when we got into town Beth called and said if we weren't too tired to come to the hospital we could come on and see her that night. So that is what we did.lol
I am into gourds. I just love them and would really like to have a couple or three of the long handled ones. Here are three I have found lately.
Well I am so happy you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Still no bites on the house. I am fine with that
PSS: Please continue to pray for our fellow bloggers who are having health issues.
PSSS: Take time in your busy schedule to enjoy those you love. Give them an extra hug and tell them how much they mean to you. You won't be sorry.
