There you have it.

It's been a week since the dreaded kidney stone caused so much pain and havoc in my scheduled life.  I hate when that happens.  It really is a pain in the ass.  Or side.  WHATEVER!!!

Let's see.  I've been medicated.  Drinking gallons of Gatorade!!!  GALLONS!!  When you drink that much you should just set up camp in the bathroom because that is where you stay.  On the toilet.  Lovely, huh? 

In my medicated haze I crocheted and made my Christmas List.  Yes, I know it is June BUT I've made a promise/goal this year to make my gifts again for family and friends.  I don't remember if I've blogged about this yet, remember I have been heavily medicated the past week.  I grew echinacea just to make some echinacea vodka.  I am also making make-up bags and face towels for the women in the family.  I bought zippers yesterday.  Cool huh?  For the kids I am making stuffed animals.  I made one and Baby M stole it.  I make another and Lil O took it. 

I take it they love them.

Yes, I know it's missing eyes, she took it before I finished them.  I have since added eyes.  :)

Saturday we celebrated my Mamaw's 80 years of life with champagne, Japanese Food and my homemade Carrot Cake.  It was an awesome time.  I am so blessed to have my Mamaw.  She is in fact my hero.

This is my Mamaw crying because we were all singing Happy Birthday to her!!!!

You know I must have been really medicated to suggest a walk around the neighborhood because I don't go on the walks with them.  I use the time for ME.  But, I did take my camera.  I'd like to thank my neighborhood for not kicking me out of your yard while I took random photos of your flowers.  Thank you!  They turned out wonderful!
