fever and a rash

My son is in the hospital. What started out as
a rash and fever
has turned into a week long stay.
At least the hospital
knows how to entertain kids.
He has a flat screen t.v. and xbox 360. The remote is the screen by his bed with
a selection of movies to watch, cameras to see
what's going on around
the hospital, internet access and more.
He has a menu that he can order anything on it between the
hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Not knowing what is wrong with him sucks.
I hope they figure it out soon.
And we can go home.

the beginning

so i've started a little bird oasis
i realize that it may
not look exactly
this picture,
but in my head it does. . . .

a gift in the mailbox

I got home late after a movie to find a surprise
in the mailbox.
All rolled up and tied with a ribbon.
I opened it to find a
beautiful edward t-shirt.
I wish i was young enough to
wear it.
Had a good laugh when i tried it on.
My sister
always knows what i will love.

a new book

Stephanie Meyer is giving all her fans the option to read her new book online for free. If you are interested
go to and click on bree tanner at the bottom.
I think this is only for a month so don't delay.

sweet lil roli

This is a sweet little boy
until he
gets mad
and bangs his head on the floor.
sigh. . . .

little fig tree

I dug up a piece of a fig tree from my aunts house.
It came from my grandparents farm
originally and it's growing
slowly but surely.
I love the smell of the leaves when i disturb them.
Nothing is better than
eating figs
picked fresh from the tree.
Patience is a hard thing.

estate sale

I stopped at an estate sale on my way home from work and

picked up a few cute things.

A vintage table cloth and a couple of table runners....

....some crocheted potholders in pastel colors.
Just perfect for me.

new projects

I went to Barnes&Noble and looked through some
magazines this weekend.
I found a few things i would really like to do
1.mason jars half way filled with sand, put a white candle in them to make lanterns, hang with wire.
2.make a large painting of cabbage roses for over my couch using the colors in the room.
3.use old chipped plates for a garden edging.
4.make a bird feeder out of a small milk carton, put a stick in the front for a perch, cover it with peanut butter then birdseed.
5.plant a pot of flowers to attract hummingbirds, then put up hummingbird feeder.

I think i will start with the bird feeders.
