TMI For Sure!

Hey everyone!  This will be very short, because I'm under the influence of drugs.....lol!  Several of you have been so sweet to wish me well and say little prayers, so I just wanted to report that it is all good news.  I've been having tummy issues for about a month, and discussed it with my Gastro-Guy when I went in for my pre-Colonoscopy exam.  He decided to do an endoscopy at the same time as the colon peek-a-boo. 


Good news is that the "far end" is fine, and the endo revealed gastritis and possibly a stomach infection which can be handled with meds.  I was one very nervous lady but am feeling very grateful and very tired.  All those who say the "SUPREP" for the colonoscopy is the worst part of it, are absolutely right!  

I am a real Nervous Nellie when it comes to doctors and medical procedures.  My way of dealing with stressful or emotional situations is to clean or organize or both, which is exactly what I did all last week.  I revamped my ....wait for it.... craft room!  Bet you are totally shocked about that, right?  Another shocker -- I will be sharing a post about it very soon, because I need a filler until we get the master closet finished.  You just can't wait for that, can you?

Anyway, once again, I give a heartfelt "Thank You" to all my sweet bloggy friends.  I just love y'all!  I hope I haven't grossed you out with "too much info" -- TMI!  Hope you are all having a great week.  I plan on having a super-week!

Sometimes You Just Have to Share Some Personal Stuff.

Hey everyone!  I haven't been doing too much blogging recently.  One reason being that we are still working on our closet DIY, but the other is more personal.  I seem to be spending quite a bit of time in doctors' offices -- UGH!  One of my issues has been an "out-of-whack" thyroid.  I've dealt with hypothyroidism for many years, but recently it went kind of haywire and the doctor found 2 large nodules.  I had 4 biopsies in each one last week and found out today that there is NO CANCER!  I was pretty much doing the "happy dance" in her office!  Now I just have to try to get my Synthroid dosage regulated.  I'm having a couple of other procedures done early next week, but I won't bore you with the details of those.  Just wish me luck!
And because all of the above is just too Ugh-ish, I thought I'd share some backyard pretties.
I did show this geranium a few weeks ago, but it has almost doubled in size!

The ugly little foot is there just to give you a size perspective -- it's HUGE!  That would be the geranium that's HUGE, not the foot....lol!

I don't know what these are called, but they barely survived the last couple of months of last summer's heat and have bounced back in such a lovely way.

The herb pot is just beautiful and so fragrant!

I also shared this pot of pretties a few weeks ago, but it has more than doubled in size.  This one just makes me smile.

We are really enjoying our Spring weather and the beautiful plants and flowers.  Our temps are gradually increasing and we are soon to be in the 90's.  Oh well, that's life in the AZ desert -- gotta take the bad with the good!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Bit to Share!

Hey everyone!  Between doctors' appointments and our DIY project, I have no time to do a regular post this week; but I do have a couple of little things to share.  We were just over in Phoenix this morning getting some supplies from a cabinet accessories store.  Now I don't always go along on these little jaunts, but The Man asked so sweetly if I would like to go, how could I refuse?  Going someplace like that in the morning usually means we will do lunch out somewhere -- YAY!  We have a favorite little restaurant we like in Tempe called Mac's and just a few doors down is a cute little consignment shop called Turnstyle Tempe.  I've only been in the store one other time and didn't find anything, but not true today!
Just look at this little sweetie!
Would you believe she was only $14 minus a 20% special discount.........TOTAL $12.13 out the door!

She is sitting on her little nest with two more eggs in the back and one little chick peeking out.  It was love at first sight -- can you see all that beautiful turquoise color?  Oh yes, she is perfect!  This is as close to "hens, eggs and chicks" as I want to get!  My hat is off to those who are raising hens and gathering eggs.  I got my fill of that when I was a tween, so I am very happy to stick to the ceramic ones now!  But, seriously, isn't she just adorable?  I'll share in another post where she will be nesting.


This was my other purchase -- same price, same discount for a great patio clock!  It is heavy and
in perfect condition.

Great morning -- filled my tummy and got some retail therapy along the way!  It's a glorious day here in the "Valley of the Sun," and I hope it's a beautiful day for all of you!
