Lauritzen Gardens/Beauty Part 1

 Am I lucky or what, these gardens in Omaha, NE is about 7 miles from my home.
We are opening a new conservatory and I was a day early.  Will go next week.

The beautiful statue was at a private resident and donated to Lauritzen Gardens.

Taking walks in these garden are rejuvenating your soul.

Have a great weekend.

Ribbons for Seniors

I have a wonderful group of residents help me with quilts. I always like to thank them with a goodie.
Last time we did washcloths, a plant for Mayday and Valentine cards.


I think they will be happy.

Not A Halloween Person

My birthday is in October - I love fall and Thanksgiving but I don't care for all the horror stuff for October.
My worse gripe is all the horror movies on TV,  where are the musicals.  I know I will have to put in some DVDs but it is not the same. 

I am going to do pumpkins and do some decorating, I don't buy Halloween fabric but I might have to make 2 pillow cases instead of all that candy.  I love candy but it is no good eating all that sweet stuff so I will eat lots of apples.

I made homemade apple sauce in a crock pot and oh how easy and delicious it is.


Sorry I am grouchy today.
Halloween is great for the kids, they get all dressed up and learn to say 'thank you'.

Women's Hospital/Nurses

I had my surgery (rectrocele) that is all I am going to say.  Thanks to Methodist Women Hospital here in Omaha, NE.  Nurses were fabulous, they said I was a "rock style patient".  The hospital has been busy with 400 births for month of September.  I swear it was like being in a spa - I had a private room
(didn't get the bill yet) and got lots of attention.



My son from Texas came to take care of me, he did lots of cooking while he was up here.


Needed a fan.
Beautiful large bathroom
Lovely art work in the halls, they had me walk the halls in the evening.
Thanks to all the nurses who took care of me, I left them a box of candy.  At home recuperating, can't sit in a chair - lying down and I have read 2 books so far.  Life is good sometimes.

"Frozen" theme birthday party

My granddaughter turned 7 and her birthday party was so much fun with the frozen theme.  The girls just love doing skits and singing the songs.  What great memories.


Had carrots for Olaf.
We made snowflakes, ice from blue corn syrup, snow covered trees from coffee filters, snow covered doughnut tree, had a castle and you can't forget "olaf".

Fall I am still in Summer mode

Time to take out my fall swag.
Weather has been wonderful here in the Midwest except we have had rain.  I love rain but when it rains too much we get flooding.  My begonias that I planted in May didn't do anything until about a month ago and now they are looking beautiful.  I will be off to visit my grand kids in TX and it is still summer there. 
My second quilt I made is out but I need to change the flowers or put out my pumpkin house.

One Year we cut wood, I love the smell of a wood burning fire.

This is Fall in TX.

I will be traveling to a birthday party and the theme will be Frozen.  Can't wait for hugs, kisses, walks, scooters and playing Old maid.
