Mom and Dad update!

its been a long haul for Dad (mom too!)
a few hospital stays..
his heart valve replacement
more hospital stays.. 
Most recently...
due to excess fluid. 
His kidneys just could not
keep up sooo 
Dad has Kidney Dialysis 3x a week...its about a 50 mile round trip and takes a good 3 1/2 hours..
Sister Jana and I have been trying to help with the chauffeuring.  Mom could use some time to herself..as its been a long haul for her too. today mom took her crocheting and a lawn chair with her and was planning on sitting outside in the sun. the temp is in the 90s now so im hoping shes sitting inside with some air! Dad is on a waiting list here in town which will be great as its 3 city blocks from our homes! dads been feeling better FINALLY! this last week, that he could probably drive himself!! im hoping that his body and mind are adjusting to this way of life, we are thankful for the medical world and what is able to be done.

i caught these two out walking a couple weeks ago..

enjoy your summer days my blog friends!                            jody

Cobblers at Carol P's house!

i have been so overwhelmingly busy lately that i asked Carol P if she would host the monthly Cobbler get-together for June, thank you Carol P!
first of course is the food! Pizza, meat & cheese, avocado dip & chips, bean dip & chips, fresh strawberries and Auntie Mary's frozen banana dessert!

Carol & Husband Chuck had just got back from California so we got to hear all the details!



she brought us cobblers thimbles and key chains! Thank You Carol P!


then she had a show & tell!
she showed us a quilt she had started when we had gotten together out at sisters cabin.

 the back!

Carol loves color! especially orange!



her pup Bell who is 7 1/2 kept an eye on us!
she loves to lay on the kitchen floor!
so after we ate that's where she stayed!

then we headed outside for a bit!
Auntie Mary always keeps us laughing!


 Carol has a beautiful yard and i sure didn't take many pictures of it!
once i sat down i guess i was done for! relaxed and then tired!!
i will have to go back up to her house a snap a few pictures!

Carol had found this cute lil own and we are wondering if it could be a pie bird?
does anyone know?

Thank You Carol P we had a great time with you at your beautiful colorful home!!
