Good News! I have gotten my diabetes down into the normal range. It has taken me almost a year. I've lost 20 lbs and have totally changed the way I eat. It hasn't been much fun. But I'm finding great new things that I can eat all the time!! Today was so nice out. I decided to do a little trimming on the ground cover that has covered my front bench. Here is a before picture. Then I tried to get Buddy to sit on it so I could take a after picture. Ha! That was a joke. A little to close to the street for him. I tried once more! He wouldn't look at me. Oh poo! The bench does look better a little trimmed back. And I added a chicken pillow (chicken of course). lol It was a relaxing day. Yesterday I went to a memorial for one of my sweet friends son. It was very touching and I my heart just breaks for her. Knowing what it feels like to only have one son. But I can't imagine the pain she feels. She has lots of support and 3 wonderful daughters. Mona we all love you!! She's the one in the middle. Always with a great smile and a kind word. I'm blessed to have her as a friend. So hopefully beautiful pictures are coming out of this darknesss. Hugs to all and always with great color!

Here is my Hydrangea in full bloom. I love it. I might try a tip for when you cut the flowers for a vase. Your suppose to dip the stems in boiling water first. But I don't know if I have the heart to cut them. Look how pretty they are up close. I know in other parts of the country they get much larger. But I'm just thrilled that my pretty plant is living!!!
And always with great color!

I'm such a proud Grandma!! Here my grandson Ryan is gratuating from 6th grade. I can't believe how fast they grow up. Here are some random pictures of Ryan and his classmates. Here is one with my beautiful daughter. Of course Ryan looked down. He couldn't wait to be off with his friends. And I took another picture of my Hydrangea. The blooms are so pretty! And always with great color!!

I hope everyone had a great Easter. Mine was very relaxing. That morning I was packing away my Easter knick knack. When Buddy ran out the door. He saw a butterfly and took off after it. There were three little boys playing ball outside. They saw Buddy run out. One of the boy's said "Look a skunk!!" I cracked up!! Yes, he was crawling down low toward the butterfly. And Yes, he is big and hairy. I just looked at the boys and said "No he is a cat. Just big and hairy." Poor Buddy. Now they think he's a skunk!!!

I've been going back an forth in my mind.....Do I want a headboard on my bed or a cool piece of art. When ever I'm looking at pictures or out shopping, I try and find ideas. Hum? Couldn't seem to find a painting with the right colors. In fact I was almost thinking of painting something myself. (Oh dear that's a scary thought). Then I was shopping at my favorite store Ross (of course). And there she was!!!! I still had questions in my mind. So I wandered over to Kohls. There she was again!!! At twice the price!!!! Of course I still wasn't sure.
I went home to think about it. And think, and think. Ok, after work I new I needed her. I went to my more local Ross and YEAH she was still there. I like the crystal's on this piece. They will go with my "S" that I just crafted. Since I'm going for a more girly look, it will fit right in. The mirror in the middle is bevealed also. I love it!! In case your not sure......The white is the cardboard box it is in.
Now which color should I paint the walls?? Tan or light grey blue?? Which do you think would look good behind my new art?
Of course Buddy had to have a look at himself in the mirror!!
And always with great color!!

My latest interesting web site is Pinterest. I kept seeing these letters covered in buttons and corks. So I thought I would make one for my bedroom. It took me a while to find the right size I wanted. But found one at Joanne's Fabrics. So here it is while painting it blue.
It was a little bright. So I added some black paint and calmed it down. Then I started adding the bling!!!
I covered every inch. Exept the back. I'm going to stand it on my nightstand.
I plan on painting my furniture black. Here is the finished "S". It took me quite a white. (And a few glue gun burns on the fingers).
While I was doing the "S" I started replacing my kitchen faucet. What a pain in the rear end. Living in a mobile home, well lets just say Nothing is normal size. After shutting down the water to the house. I removed the old faucet. I know now why I don't do plumbing much. Crawling under the sink......kills the back!!!
I would love a new sink. But of course that's a weird size too. And I'm not going to attempt that one on my own. After installing the new faucet. I was super pleased. Except of course it leaked a little underneath. GRRRRRRRR!! So I had to take it all apart again. Shutting off and on the water to the house. I need flex hoses under the sink. My house is so old 1966. All the piping is copper tubes. And they don't like to be messed with much. So anyways after the second try it seems to be ok. Until I can get flex hoses and then my son!! (thank you Jesus) will help me. Let's just say I said a few prayers though this project!!
And what was Buddy doing the whole time??? Like always, resting.
And always with great color!!!
