Pooped! Left at 9 am for the bridal shower brunch...got there at 11 am. dh dropped us off and then he went to my cousins house where the men were hanging out. He goes to start our car to come get us and the car is dead. Bought a new battery...but we also were told we would need an alternator. Drove home praying for 2 hours that the car would not die on us...and prayers were answered. Got home and got my 90 yr old auntie and my cousin to their home. Now dh went to see about the alternator. He's afraid to park in the garage and not be able to get it to start tomorrow if he doesn't get the new alternator. It's been a very expensive day.....but the bridal shower was lovely! And spending time with my auntie is priceless....it's like spending time with my mom....they're so much alike.
Martica, what goodie did you get at the antique store. I love looking in antique stores, but i find the items expensive and not sure if I'm actually looking at something that is an antique or just old stuff!!!!
Jolena, good luck on deciding what style to go with....I can't make a decision on what color throw pillows to buy......but, I do like old world.
My sil has breast cancer which had spread to her lungs and bones; a few months ago it spread to her brain. She's been through 9 months of chemo; then 5 weeks of radiation, and many meds. She is determined to see her son become a doctor, and I truly believe it is what keeps her going, that and prayer.
OK....time for a cuppa.....

Can't sleep again. Sad news, lost my sweet cousin Bill Thromalin to cancer on Friday morning. In 2006 the Dr.'s gave him 3 months to live. He started taking pomegranate juice for it's antioxidant properties and the juice kept the cancer at bay for seven years. The Dr's at the Mayo Clinic were quite curious to learn all about his routine (just a few ozs. a day) as it appeared to them as if he had been through chemo and radiation therapy. Yet he never had that treatment. Went to visit him last Sunday and learned that he stopped taking his juice two months ago. Within four weeks he was into full liver failure, last week the kidneys started shutting down and he passed on Friday. So upset to learn that he came off his juice, not sure this had to happen. Would appreciate prayers for his loved ones, especially Nancy, William and Amy.
Martica want to wish you a very Happy Birthday! My local scrap shop is in the antique district of Old Town Temecula, which is where I go with Amelia on Wed.'s for crop and Friday's for card class. I love browsing around the antique stores and enjoy having a nice lunch along the way. Makes for a perfect day out with a friend. I hope your day is as special as you are sweet friend!
My friend Kathy came to rescue me yesterday from all the family drama this week and took me to the La Quinta Arts Festival just outside of Palm Springs. We had such a wonderful day. We met so many wonderful artist and I found so much artistic inspiration it really refreshed my soul. We found a musician, Bill Keale, that sang so beautifully I just had to have some of his music. One song in particular "It's a Beautiful Day" so touched me. It was about remembering others that have passed on. I couldn't help but let the tears flow as I sat and listened to his heavenly voice. Mr. Keale was kind enough to sign my cd's and dedicate the one with that beautiful song in memory of my cousin Bill. It was a very healing moment for me. I plan on giving his wife Nancy the CD this afternoon in hopes that she will share it at his memorial service this week.
Good Morning Ladies,
Dawna, sorry about your loss. Prayers for you and Bill's family.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARTICA! ENJOY YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
