T Stands for Tuesday

Good Morning my Tuesday Friends!!!
Once again I have been missing in action and I do believe that this will be the case all summer. My time is being eat up by family and garden and that is a good thing. 
The big news is that the Babies are here and healthy!!!!!

 They came home yesterday which is way this is a day late. Packing up and transferring everything and everyone is an all day affair.   
Here they are at home finally...
This is Maryana Lynn 

and this is 
Dominic Anthony
They are very very tiny and as all preemies they are having a bit of trouble nursing, but breast pumps are an amazing thing and they take the bottle well. She does hope to get them to nurse full time eventually. 
Grandpa is in SEVENTH HEAVEN 
and Grandma is pretty happy too!!!
Big sister is thrilled too...
 
They will never be starved for attention ♥ 
 
 
At the home front things are blooming like crazy and the Monarch season has started.

 
It's going to be a very busy summer and I apologize ahead of time for not visiting all of you regularly! As things settle in and get more normal I should be around more.

T Stands for Tuesday

Hello again !
It's been super busy around here and will only be getting busier very soon. 
So I'm sure it will be hit and miss with my postings all summer. 
The yard and gardens have taken off  big time and I'm still playing catch up with  the work that I didn't get done last fall. 
Here are a few of this years flowers so far...





This last shot is the wooded area that we started clearing out the invasive oriental honeysuckle last year. We burned off the leaves and dead brush so hopefully we will have less bugs and fewer honeysuckles. 
On the baby front they will probably arrive this week. It's a full month early and they are still small. She is getting shots to stop labor but the doctor says it will be this week. 
This is last Friday's ultra sound photos.

So all gardening may come to a halt for a while :)

Hopefully I'll be able to get around and visit more people this week, time management is an issue with me these days.

T Stands for Tuesday

Hello My Tuesday Friends!!! 
Time is flying again this week and the weather is still confused. 
One day it's Spring and then Winter is back in force 😩
At least the Spring Flowers haven't given up completely. They just droop more than normal.
 
My computer is acting up again today so I am trying to do this on my phone and it's  hard for me.
Over the weekend we stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a treat. 
It's been years since we stopped there.

T Stands for Tuesday

It's Tuesday again and time to say hello to my friends at...
T Stands For Tuesday!!!
It's been a supper crazy busy week over here and I missed last week altogether. 
We had unexpected company for Easter and he got sick and ended up in the hospital. So I've been busy taking care of him and trying to get all of his medical records and things shipped here from New Mexico. He will be staying with us indefinitely. 
Life is full of surprises.  

Then there is the crazy business of getting ready for these twins to show up. 
They had a Diaper Shower on Saturday that was great and they got tones of diapers that I'm sure they will go through much faster than they think. 
They had photos taken on Sunday....



I'm in love with all of the photos!!!! 
She has 8 more weeks to go but the Doctor says she will deliver much earlier. So we are expecting tiny little babies in our life. 
Mom is now on bedrest and hopefully that will help the little ones grow faster and stay inside longer. They have to wait because I don't have the blankets done. I thought I had at least 6 more weeks 😕
We had snow over the weekend again...thankfully it didn't last overnight!!!


And here's my drink for the day.

It's suppose to warm up this week so flowers should really start blooming ♥♥♥ I'll be in my happy place 😍

So that's all for now.... hoping that things will be calmer this week and I can be here next week too :)

T Stands for Tuesday

HELLO MY TUESDAY FRIENDS!
I'm running late again this week :-( 
Weather has me down again... rainy, grey days...one right after the other. 
I'm missing the sunshine big times. 
Plus my allergies turned into another sinus infection which gone into my ears and my eyes. Didn't know a sinus infection could go into your eyes. 
So now I'm on steroids and antibiotics  AGAIN! Plus they have changed out my allergy medicines and added two eye drops. 
I'm thinking the desert is sounding more and more like a good place to live.... but I could never give up my gardens. 
I'm drinking lots of coffee today ..trying to get motivated to do anything. :) Hubby made the coffee this morning so it was extra, extra, extra strong. Had to add more cream than normal :0) 
Here's the few flowers that I do have blooming...



I have several more mini greenhouse planted with flowers and more flowers but no photos ... to rainy. 
Today I hope to start the more tender ones like tomatoes and tender Herbs.
