During This Time

I keep reminding myself how blessed I am to have a cozy home to be quarantined in, food in my pantry, meat in my freezer and money to pay my bills!!  

But, I'm so tired of staying at home.

Tiffany and the girls came over one day (since I hadn't been out anywhere) and we had a picnic out in the front yard.

Last week, we had a terrible thunderstorm with lots of hail.  Within 30 minutes, my deck was covered.  Looked like it had snowed.  It was just marble sized so didn't do any damage to anything.

But the intense rains we have been having in between the 70-80 degree days has really made my tomato plant grow.  I keep moving it in and out because of the high winds and storms we have been having.

Everything is really growing.

Had to have my huge tree in the front yard trimmed again - the second time in the four years I have lived here.  It grows so fast.  I told them to trim it back - but, not to take out any of my squirrels' nests.

I kept the three little girls last weekend to give Tiffany a break.  They had been home confined for 7 weeks.  Except for coming over to my house for the picnic, they were homebound.  Because of Kaycee's lung disease, we can't take any chances of exposure of any kind for her.

On Sunday, they announced they were having an Art Car Parade thru the neighborhood.  We found out the exact route and parked in a parking lot and watched it.  This is just a couple of the cars.  I had no idea anything like this existed.  The bottom one had a stuffed Scooby Doo hanging out the window.  The kids enjoyed it.


I finally wallpapered one wall in my master bath.  This is the pink bathroom.  I have had this paper for over a year.  The wall was textured but I used a liner paper which I had never done before.  It feels like an interfacing and you hang it horizonally.  Then hang the wallpaper vertically as usual.  It is so smooth.  The books are all in shades of cream and tan.  I love it.  Will be making a new shower curtain in cream and tan and hopefully it will cut down the pink!!  When the world gets back to a new normal, I'll have the pink shower and floor replaced.  But, for now, I'm okay with it.

Stay safe and well.



  1. Hi Judy - such a catching up with you in your post today. Loved seeing Tiffany and your grands. when they came over to visit.

    1. It was good to have the kids over for a while. They brought their bikes to ride. No traffic on my street. Thanks for visiting.

  2. hi judy im glad you have had a chance to see your family - we aren't even allowed to visit at a distance here yet, sometimes people wave at their family through a kitchen window but that's it. I like your pink wallpaper, it looks like a nice backdrop to your plans for the bathroom.

    1. thanks Betty. Actually, the wallpaper isn't pink - its all shades of tan and beige. But it does look pink in that photo.

  3. OH a picnic sounds like fun to me! I love the wallpaper, great job! We are tired of staying in too. I have been out some but wear a mask. Gotta stay safe and well. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

    1. I haven't gone anywhere without a mask. Have been making masks for family.

  4. Hi Judy,
    So happy you were able to have the girls for the weekend. How fun that must have been. I miss my two grand girls so much. I love the wallpaper for the bathroom. I cannot wait to see more when you can get more things done. Glad you are doing well and staying safe. Have a wonderful Mother's day. You deserve a nice day.

    1. hi Kris. I can't believe I have so much time and seem to not be getting much done??? Happy Mothers Day to you sweet friend.

  5. So glad you got to see Tiffany and your grandgirls! I got to see my mom and aunt last week - we had lunch on my aunt's patio. I hadn't seen my mom since mid-March and my aunt since Feb. The only other 2 people I've seen are two friends and we sit in each other's yard in lawn chairs, six feet apart.

    You did a great job on wallpapering your bathroom, especially by yourself. I'm all thumbs when it comes to things like that. It would look like a 2-year old tried to do it. ;-)

    Be well and safe ~ and happy Mother's Day!

  6. I am SO happy to see you blogging again! I've missed you so much. I love the parade that went by and I'm so glad Tiffany and the girls are still close to you. What a difference they make. Take care and have a good weekend! Hugs, Diane

  7. thanks for visiting. I hope to blog more. Just lost my ambition there for a while. Stay safe and well.

  8. Hi Judy! So good to back with my blog, and catching up! Even with being in our homes, there really is so much to be grateful for. I love the idea of the art parade, how fun! Love your book wall paper too, it looks really good. Happy Mother's Day, and God Bless.

    1. Happy Mothers Day to you as well. Stsy well and safe.

  9. I bet you loved having those girls all to yourself, so glad you were able to help out. Mom's need a big break! Stay safe.

    1. I really enjoyed having them. We always have fun. Tiff didn't know what to do with herself! LOL

  10. I am glad you were able to take the girls so that mom could have a break. This virus is especially scary if you have someone that is at high risk. We also have two in our family that are high risk.
    So nice to see a post from you-I have been in and out of blogging with John's health and the move to condo life. xo Diana

    1. We had so much fun. Sounds like you've been busy! Take care and safe. Prayers for John.

  11. The art car parade looks like fun. We actually went to a 70th birthday party the other day. I was a drive by with lots of honking.

    1. We have a little one with birthday soon and am probably doing a drive by. Also, the cute yard signs.

  12. Not sure why, by my comment just disappeared....

    I wanted to say, that the fancy vehicle parade was a delightful idea. For kids and for adults. .... And I had better just Publish, before this disappears. -grin-

I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
