About Me

My photo
I am a Mom, Wife and Daughter. Say road trip and I am all ready in the car. I do love to stay home too. I am either reading, sewing, crocheting, doing something with paper or taking care of my family at any given moment.

Quiz Tuesday

I know this is an electrical supply....Wires run through the wire mesh into an electrical box that the base is attached to. I need to know what it is called so my friend and I can order them in quantity for table decorations....... Taking the industrial flavor a bit further we could add a place card with an alligator clip....
See what we have in mind.......

Backyard Wednesday

Our "backyard" since Saturday has been this view from the fifth floor of the University of Michigan Hospital.......Hopefully next Wednesday we will be back to our REAL back yard!!

Quiz Tuesday

What is in Stephanie's stomach? Will they be able to clear it out?

What is causing Elizabeth's stomach pain? Will her appendix have to come out now too?

You'll thank me for no pictures today!

Avian Trauma Center

I can not even describe how blazing hot it is today. This poor bird flew into our front window and landed panting in the full sun on the front porch. Gaela and I tried to figure out how to get him out of the sun. First I brought out the small bowl of water and imagine our surprise when the poor guy hopped into the dish. We got out the roasting pan next thinking he'd like something roomier. He preferred the kiddy pool. We held the blanket up for a while until we got overheated and draped it over the porch rail and moved the whole operation over so we could go inside and let him calm down.

Cadillac thought we were having bird stew for dinner....He was most disappointed when the bird flew off......

Weekend Projects

 Connie's Project: Vintage Book Page Rosebuds......

Pat's Project: Cedar Siding Window Surround.....

Not much has changed overall in the last week...Next week I'll bet the day lilies will be popping open.
