Bathroom Part Deux

So it has been repainted!
Spice Cake -- hmmm goes well with  a cup of tea.
I digress.
Left the blue ceiling.
I like it!
I think Iain will like this much better.
I do plan on getting blue towels to accent.

But not today!

Stepped off the ladder one rung too soon.
I'm okay just twisted this sister.
 I can walk...... with a pirate's limp.
Resting and ice and hope it feels better tomorrow.

Now I have to come up with a much more exciting story for this.

"I was painting this morning when all of a sudden 3 shadowy figures burst thru my front door!!
Oh no NINJAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you just hate it when Ninjas break in and ruin your day?"

What a hot one today.
With the humidex it hit 39!!
I decided to start repainting the bathroom.
Yes had to repaint.
Iain just "DID NOT" like that blue.
I have one coat on and I think he will be accepting of this colour -- spice cake!

So hot today even the squirrels took a break.

Did a bit of wandering the garden.
Really too hot to do anything too difficult.
Watered the pots!

The Bridalwreath Spireas are fabulous this year.

My little Miles and Riley angels.
Help me in the garden.

A nice cool bath for the birds.

The first of my many peonies in bloom.

Keeping hydrated on days like today is a full time job.

My bad ass Easter Island man.

Dirty Digging

Siobhan and Will visited me on Saturday.
They helped me dig up the front garden bed.
I am reconfiguring it into a Hosta garden.
What a huge help they were.
I'm sure it would have taken me all weekend or longer to do this by myself

It was hot very dirty work but now already!
Sure made that shower and Corona very welcoming.
They stayed for BBq Pork chops and vegetarian scallopini
Potatoe feta salad and Caesar salad and
Ice cream bars for dessert!
It was a fun day!

Feathery and Furry visits

Spent last Saturday (may 19th) at Sio and Will"s.
The boys played golf and us girls just hung out.

Mulligan and MacGuffin like to watch from the windows.
Hi "Aunty Deb" Nona took our pictures especially for you!!

Cedar Waxwings came  for a visit to our backyard.
They don't ususally stay too long but they have been here for over a week.
They are enjoying the new apple buds on our tree and the water baths.

Isn't this great? Got a shot of his crest up -- "Hey girls I'm over here!!!!!!"

And got a great shot of Mrs. Hummer checking out the petunias hanging by our shed.

A few quick shots around the Garden

We had a bit of rain Saturday night and I couldn't resist taking some drop pictures.

 I love the way the raindrops glisten on the Lady's Mantle

 A few jewels on the daylilies

 A big drop on the deck table

Hola Senor Rana

Momma Day

What a terrific Mother's Day!
The sun shone and Siobhan and Will were here for the afternoon.
I did get a bit more yardwork done.
But then it was time for a quick lunch with Holly and the Peas.

I didn't have to do a thing.

Siobhan and Will were in charge of salad and cooking the penne
Iain made an awesome basil pesto!

Barbequed Steaks!
Not too often so when we do YUMMY.

Unfortunately it is a lot easier to drink more wine when you are sitting on your a** .
This morning Mama is feeling a wee bit jagged.

Siobhan wanted a shot of her shoes.
These babies made her almost 6 feet tall!!!!!

Siobhan gave me these awesome earrings.
Excuse the squinty eyes -- sun was in my eyes!

Missed our Lil momo but she was here in our hearts.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Happy Momma Day

My Mommy
I didn't get to spend a lot of my life with her but
she is a part of my life every day.
She died when she was only 37 leaving myself and my 2 younger sisters.
Being a mom myself I cannot imagine what her last days felt like.
I love you !

My Nana
She took care of us after my mother died.
I was 12 and I like to think she would be very proud of the momma I have become.
Thank you Nana!
By the Way she made the damn best coconut cream pie!!

This was taken last Mother's Day.
I love this picture of us.

And now my girl is a lil momo herself and this is her first Momma day!
Happy Mother's day sweeti!!
Siobhan is momma to two furbabies.
Happy "cat's momma" to you too hunni!
