So much to tell...with so little time to do so!

I'm beginning to wonder if what I have to tell would be interesting to some..
There are a few people I never hear from unless they have something to sell...
For those few that do have interest...
We are very proud in the way our children and grand children stepped up to the plate and handled our affairs because we were too out of it to make any kind of decisions...They were able to take weeks by rotating and getting it all together...If we didn't do anything right in life we sure brought forth some special kind of people...The only bad thing I have to say ...Never let four different women in your kitchen, or a Son who thinks he is a gourmet cook..you will never find anything again :o)
I did get a brand new microwave ..(so that's a good thing) (nothing wrong with the old one..they thought I had it long enough :o) Somebody grabbed it from the throw away before morning..and a new coffee pot, the gourmet son thought ours too yucky! okay by me :o)...
Had to change the furniture around ...for the new reclining chairs they felt we needed to be more comfy...they are nice..I'm going to sell my antique furniture..
A dealer wants a picture ..I'll get to it soon...I've enjoyed it long enough.

Oh, Miss Ginny, I have missed you! It is so nice to read your friendly blog and see your smiley faces. Glad to hear you see the humor in sharing your kitchen! I'm so glad your family was there for you during your time of trouble. Hoping to hear that you're able to get out to your garden and enjoy the produce you worked so hard to get started.

Ginny, how great to see you back! I'll pray for yours and Cecil's continued improving health!

The redbud has beautiful pink flowers in spring. It makes a nice understory tree - you often see them in the woods. It is a legume so its roots fix nitrogen in the soil. A good small tree to have. I have two in the Back Forty. One has gotten huge - at least 12-15 feet tall.

My mother has a microwave so old that it isn't even digital. It is from the late 70s and still works.

Good to see you and that your humor is intact. Sit back and let them spoil you, you've earned it!

Ginny, I'm so happy to see that you are feeling well enough to post on your blog. Have been thinking of you often the past month and wondering about you. Your children are wonderful blessings. I'm so glad they were there to help you out when you needed them. A new microwave and new chairs sound wonderful! How thoughtful and generous of them. Enjoy them. You deserve them. Hope you are getting plenty of rest (and Cecil is too!) so that you can start feeling better soon. Hugs to you from Daisy.

Ladydi, Seltzer is as close to water as I wanted to get today :o)
Laurie, the new Microwave is kind of nifty..it's one of those stainless steel models..We have to read the book to learn how to operate it :o)
The Redbud sounds promising..
Melodye,they have certainly spoiled me and I'm lapping it all up.
Daisy the new chairs are like beds :o)..they are called "Cat Nappers"...and they are comfy..
