Last Sunday I was helping Tiffany clean out the garage in her old house.  OOPS!!  Slipped on a black plastic trash bag and fell on the concrete floor.  Went home, took a shower and a couple of Tylenol and laid down for a while.  When I went to get up, I couldn't put any weight on the left foot.

Went to the ER and they Xrayed the foot and said I had a couple of tiny bones broken and wrapped it in an ace bandage.  So, Friday I went to my podiatrist and he put me in this brace.  Also, noticed my big toe was all swollen and black.  I had damaged my toe nail and so, he removed it.

But, I am in no pain and the brace is helping with support.  I am very grateful that I didn't break anything else.  This old age is not for sissies.  LOL

Now, on to more pleasant things...

flowers are doing well....

still getting a few roses.  This bush was yellow to start out and now they are soft white????

Lots of these bright little things...

and these gorgeous lilies just popped up all over the flower beds yesterday.  I am having to water twice a day to keep everything alive.  We hit 101 yesterday with a heat index of 109.

Picked the girls up this week one day and took them to Chic-Fil-A for dinner and to play in the inside playground.

It's just been too hot for them to go outside.

Little Miss Kaycee sliding down the slide.  A year ago today she was dismissed from the hospital after numerous trips there because of her lung problems.  We are blessed that she has gone a year without having to go to the ER and endure a stay in the hospital.  God is good!

Another day, we just went to their new home to play until Tiffany got home.  Laynee was reading to me from her diary. That little girl has quite an imagination.  She just read and read about what all she does and writes in her journal.

Then they decided to wear Tiffany's boots.

They are so funny and such a blessing to me.  Trust me, with the three of them I have no time to be down in the dumps.

Laycee thought the stickers looked better on her face than on the paper.  LOL

Remember the terrible thunderstorm we had last week?  These two photos were taken in the drive way waiting in the car for the rain to slow down.

It didn't happen for several hours.  We had 90 mph winds and several inches of rain in a couple of hours.  Glad that is over.  I have gotten all of the limbs cut up and the city will come pick them on on 8-4.

Can't wait to show you my latest project I have started. Due to foot injuries, it may be a couple of weeks before I can finish it up.

Just a teaser - hint:  it's the entry.

Being Bella

Today's post is all about my precious Bella.  If you don't like dogs, you definitely won't like this post today.l
Bella is a shelter dog adopted when she was about six months old.  She is part Australian Shepherd and part Blue Heeler.
She was really John's dog but has done very well adapting to me as her sole owner.
Bella is so good with the little girls.  Laynee is good about sharing with her.
Bella is always close by when the little ones are here.
They are so cute together.
They both love Cheetos.
She lets me dress her up for holidays but is not too happy about it!
Can you really blame her?  LOL
And yes, she is very spoiled!!  She sleeps anywhere she wants at any time.
What a blessing she has been and continues to be each and every day.
Love you Bella!

Around The House

Just random shots around the house!

Beautiful set...

the Morning Glory tree is almost seven foot tall - not blooming yet...

some of the flowers are doing quite well...

someone ask about these along my back fence.  I have been told they are a form of phlox....

my succulent garden is doing well...

door of cabinet in guest room...

contents of that cabinet...

my Mom always had a platter full of odds and ends of salt and pepper shakers.  This was hers...

a very dear friend made me this precious little cabinet many years ago.  I love all of the little drawers...

my newest obsession...

and more...

and more.

Last Thursday, we had a horrible storm.  These are all in my back yard.  It is almost impossible to get someone to come cut them up and haul off with all of the damage in the city.

Have a great day!

I painted "hello" in white on the front door.
