On our way home from our trip, I was thinking about how much I missed our kids and in addition to our kids, I also missed my own bed. Even thought about doing a silly post on my bed! Then, just like that, I got a bug that left me barricaded in my bedroom alone. Talk about making up for lost time! LOL I'm happy to report that I'm feeling much better! I washed all the bed linens early this morning and cranked open the windows. The bed's been made for the first time in two days and it feels good to be about the house today. For the past two days, I've been alternating between the bed and the bedroom floor. Happy to report the pillows are back on the bed, where they're supposed to be. I'm just A little stiff and sore from all that lying around. This morning, I was able to make and eat breakfast with my family! Something I take for granted most days. Stuffed French Toast encrusted with cinnamon sugar Corn Flakes and topped with berries. Yum! And those little faces on the kids looked extra cute today. After not seeing them for more than a few minutes in the past two days. Gosh, I've missed those little birds! So happy I'll be able to spend the day with them! After the kids were off to school, I wandered outside to water some things in the garden. I've been wanting to share with you my Wisteria! I'm so excited that it's finally bloomed after being planted for over three years, this is the first year with blooms and it's positively loaded with them!! Too bad they''ll be gone all too soon... And one of my favorites, Bleeding Heart.... bigger and better than ever this year! Well, I think I hear my little guy waking and I need to get a move on. There's still plenty to do around here to make up from my sick days! Have a beautiful day!
Over the past week or so, I have been taking my camera outside with me so I could snap a few shots of my kids, my garden and my kids in the garden. The weather has been ever so pleasant. We are trying to get the most out of these perfect days, before the dog days of summer set in. After that happens, the only place I want to be is in the pool. I fell in love with this gate while my husband and I were on a long weekend in the The Finger Lakes Region of New York. I had to bring it home with me. I tucked some of my Peonies into some florist tubes and nestled them next to the swinging lady. It was a perfect little touch for our afternoon barbe-que.
