A little rambling....

Mama went home! For those who didn't know, my mom was in the hospital. Saturday night dad took her up there and they said a terrible UTI, gave her antibiotics and pain meds. I got a phone call Sun. night after church that my aunt had taken her back up there and they kept her thid time...should have done that Sat. night. I stayed up there Sunday night and I don't think either of us got much sleep. Mama was hurting bad and you know if yuo wanna sleep that night time at the hospital is no place to be. About 5am a nurse came in and I heard her tell mama "Mrs. H we came to prep you for surgery."

me- huh? *still half asleep*

mama- ok *real softly*

at this point I KNOW mama is out of it! As I'm trying to get my bearing and sit up I'm saying "no no no no."

nurse- Mam?

me- She got here last night with a UTI, she's not having surgery.

nurse- Her chart says she is.

me- Well she's not going ANY WHERE until I talk to someone.

nurse- *acting frustrated (at me!)* I'll be right back.

Forward 10 minutes and another nurse comes in....
"I'm so sorry we got her mixed up with another person who's last name starts with an H.

If I hadn't been there...would mama be one legged right now, or maybe have a pacemaker she doesn't need? Geez....

Around 30 minutes after that nurse left mama says in a sleepy voice " We could have made some money."


But she's home now and has all her parts and no extras so Praise the Lord!

On another note I made 4 flowers last night that I think are my favorites! they are so pretty.
They are in the shop.

Ten thought Tuesday

1. Our wal-mart has stopped selling fabric.
2. We were suppose to have warm warm weather today and it did get warm AFTER the cold and rain which I never saw forecasted!
3. A friend on facebook said we have a fabric store in town....will be looking for it tomorrow.
4. I made this purse from a pattern off of another blog last night, Tiny Happy, she has a great site you should check her out! I made the shoulder strap to large and I did not do her instructions justice. I did learn a lot from her though.
5. As I sat there cutting the material Daisy found the one spot she HAD to sit on and fall asleep sitting up. That's her way of saying "'s bed time." and it was past my bed time.
6. The girls are doing good, Kelly is coming home in June! YAY!!!!!!!! I need a BIG hug from her and if I'm not mistaken I think she needs a few also.
7. Linzy is in his cave, he's doing well also. I guess he's found something funny on tv cause he is laughing.

My poor bare wall....

I use to have this old window with mirrors on my wall and liked it alot....but I had to take it down. My internet has been so iffy and I know it should be getting a good signal. I am in the same room with the modem, then I remembered something Mark (brother...thanks) told me. He said a mirror might be messing with the I put an old sheet over the mirror and man did my internet speed uo. So I have to put this on the porch...where it was intended for anyway.

This is where the mirrored window's sad looking now.

So i went to my MIL's ..after looking all day for something to put here....and she had this old window in her shed. It came out of my husbands grammas house. MIL said I could have it if I wanted.... :) I wanted.
I'm going to hang it on the sad wall and instead of the 4 embroidered (Hmmm spelling?) words hanging beside it I'm going to put them inside where the panes should be.

2 post in one day!

I actually was just wanting to show someone the 2 flowers I made for a lady at church. She's having a baby girl and I thought these would be cute as part of her gift. They both have alligator clips on them and can be taken off the headband.

But this is the most I have blogged in one day in a LONG time!

Porch Progress

Our porch is real close to being finished. We still have to put a railing up around it and a few little things. Here's a few bad pics but maybe you can see a bit.

My favorite seat.

Steps were built into the deck

Not sure what he's looking for?

An hour after this was taken I moved furniture around,so doesn't look like this any more. :)

My sign I made.

Told you they were bad pics

Hopefully soon the swing will be replaced with a glider...just looking for a certain kind and haven't gotten lucky...yet.
