Busy Busy

I've posted a few things on The Seam Rippers, but nothing here in a while. It's because I've been so busy keeping LMW and sewing/painting. And I've been working on the never ending back porch and yard project. Will I EVER finish? I'm almost there. The only thing left is plants for the planters. Then I will reveal it all, such as it is. It's not a picture in a magazine. It's not what I had envisioned in my dream world. But it's the best we could do on a limited budget with limited energy. I never found any vintage metal "tulip" chairs I could afford. (People must think they are made of gold) I couldn't build up the "landscaping" part with blocks and soil, due to money, time and energy.

 But, it's my space and it will serve me well. It's much much more than we had last year, and LMW loves to sit out there, watching the leaves blow, and the traffic race behind the scrub on the property line.

I have ideas for that property line, and it will interesting to see how much of it actually comes to fruition next Spring. Having lost all of my cedar trees to the drought and heat was disappointing to say the least. I'd really like to replace them, but I don't know if that will happen. I might just decide to put some crepe myrtles in their place. I've been wanting a crepe myrtle for years. We'll see how far we can take it when the time comes.

My birds have been flocking to the feeders. Mostly Cardinals. I'm waiting for the Cedar Waxwings to migrate and stop over to eat my Bradford Pear fruit. None of the other birds seem interested.

In other matters, I've had another injection in my neck, which didn't help at all. My Mom has had another chemo treatment and feels pretty well.

LMW is growing in stature and wisdom. (As did Jesus) He is our light and our joy. He will be 6 months old on November 4. Wow.

I'm so glad your mom is tolerating her chemo well. I can't believe he's almost 6 months old! Time flies!
