I'm in a jam all right...and I'm loving it! Our raspberry bushes have been "berry, berry" good to us this year!
I've made some lovely jam and it's pretty tastey too...and pretty looking...even if I do say so myself ! Then, as if that wasn't enough, my hydrangea bush is going "bloomin' crazy"!
These all came from the same bush...some pink, some blue...it's my bi-polar hydrangea. I made a big vase full and also this little one...big or little..gotta love 'em!
To make my day even more perfect....Eddy got a makeover...OK, he just went to the groomer and was cleaned, shined, buffed, mani...or is it a pedi?, and de-shedded. He looks marvelous darling and smells marvi too!
I had to dangle a piece of pizza crust to get him to look at me..he's shy like that. He was made all pretty just in time for the arrival of my niece, Amy...her hubby Eric...their daughter Ella..(almost 2yrs.old) and their son, Parker..5 months old. Things will be hopping at the Pines this weekend! Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow, but that won't stop us from finding great places to visit and on Sunday we're having the rest of my gang over for a cookout...the weather on Sunday is calling for sun...very cool for this time of year, (it was in the 40's this morning!) but I'll take sun no matter what! Here's just a peek at the little tornado, Ella, who found the spare bedroom prime for jumping on the bed!
One last note...I'm kind of embarrassed to even tell this sad tale. I threw my back out. Yep, the wife of a Chiropractor walks with a bit of a tilt. Jack did his magic yesterday and I was much better today...but it's still a bit sore. Working in the ortho room today and lifting all the heavy instruments and patients didn't help. I also noticed that I drop things much more when my back hurts. Go figure! I need more treatments..and tender loving care...and someone else to cook this weekend...OK, I'm pushing it here. Now I really am in a jam! Wait, does that sentence sound weird to you? "am in a jam"...never mind.
Welcome to the Pines! I'm a wife of many, many years with my Chiropractor hubbie, the Mom to 4 all grown up boys/now men...and Grandmother to 9 super Grandkiddos. I work in surgery and my simple adventures are here for your amusement..can you take it?
