Need a laugh today?

This video of our little Hannah never fails to make me laugh when I watch it.  I hope you enjoy it too.

I was tending to my little grand daughter (age 3 months at the time) in a store while my daughter did some shopping.  Little Hannah kept kicking her blanket off and I kept putting it back on while saying, "We're gonna kick that blanket!"  Hannah thought Grandma was very funny so I kept on saying it until another customer came up and became an audience for shy Grandma.

Hope you smiled.

Bedroom Furniture Make-over

My sweet hubby finally agreed to let me paint our bedroom furniture.
We bought our bedroom suit about a month before we were married in June 1981.
Who would have ever dreamed that the furniture we bought when we were 20 and 21 years old would still be gracing our bedroom with its presence 33 years later?
But here she is in all her glory before her recent paint job.

And the After.

The dresser (before) is peeking into the right of this picture (below).

I even repainted her accessories (hardware) with Krylon Brushed Metallic in a Nickel finish...
and replaced the two tarnished gold metal drawer pulls with pink glass ones!

Miss Southern Belle is enjoying her newly painted home.

Nursing a chest cold

The flowers are all abloom.  The sun is shining.  The temps are perfect.
What a rotten time to get a cold!
(Is there ever a good time?)
I think I got it from my son.
Thank you, son.
It's not quite what I wanted for Mother's Day.
But I plan on being all better by Mother's Day...I hope.
I looked up my symptoms online.
Yep, the web concurs with me, it's a chest cold. 
So here are my recovery plans for today:
Cancel all my (fun!) plans.
Drink lots of water.
Drink lots of herbal tea.
Drink my meals (chicken soup).
Listen to calming music

so not perfect

I've missed you!
I'm so happy to be back from my blogging break.
I've kept busy the last few weeks.
I've done a little painting...

...and a lot of puttering,
and now I feel refreshed and ready to start afresh.
I'm letting go of more of my perfectionism (hopefully),
freeing me up to make more blog posts.
I want to return to my original reason for blogging,
a kind of diary for me.
So, I begin...again...
Here's What's for Supper tonight:
(picture and recipe courtesy of Taste of Home)
Crescent Chicken Bundles
Steamed broccoli/carrots/cauliflower
Spice cupcakes with cream cheese icing
Yum! Yum!
Thanks friends, for coming by to check on me while I was gone and thanks for dropping by today for this newest post.
I hope to see lots more of you!
