And I do mean hang on!! Batten down the hatches and hold on!! Winds here have been up to 75 MPH!!!! Talk about dust!?! OMG!! The winds were so strong that they knocked out our power for almost two days!! What a pain in the ole buttocks!! And dust!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wowzers!! A good old fashioned dust storm ensued for the entire day!! Yuck!!
It is hard to capture flying dust!! Ha!! Anywho!!! In the midst of all the flying debris; I spotted that my lilies are bursting forth!! Yay!!
And the mint for my Mojitos!!!! Hooray!!!
Secretly, I have been wanting a cat! Shhhhhh! Don't tell Dr. John! He is not a fan! But then, I found out that we have one hanging out around the house!?! And guess who spotted him???? You got it...Dr. John!! So I went out and bought some cat food and put out some bowls for him/her!! Then I forgot to feed for the last couple of days and guess who filled the bowls....you got it again....Dr. John!!
Isn't he the sweetest?? Awwwwwwww!! I just love him to pieces!! Here kitty, kitty.....
Friday, April 1st I took my friend Cheri to Kaseman Hospital to have her right foot operated on. Owie! And she wanted to play a joke on her doctor. Doctor Haas!! She said he was quite the character and had a great sense of humor. So she brought with her a boa and a rubber mouse. While she was being prepped by the nurse, I tied the boa around her leg and attached the mouse to that. Then I wrote on it, "April Fools". Everyone came over to see this....all the nurses and the anesthesiologist as well!! They cracked up!
Sooooooo...I covered her leg up with the warmed blanket (how nice is that?) and waited.
In came Dr. Haas....the victim!! Ha! He strolled over and lifted up the blanket to uncover her foot. But he didn't lift it all the way...so I did with my camera in hand. Then he spotted it and just froze...the look on his face was priceless! Then he laughed and laughed as well as everyone else!!!!!!! It was great!! Then he asked her what her favorite number was...she said 8 or 9! He said he could make sure she would have that many toes during surgery!!! Ha!!
Unfortunately, he moved up as I snapped the picture so I didn't get to capture his face.....darn it!!! Sorry Doc!!! But the event in total was priceless!! And Cheri is such a good sport to allow me to post this on my blog! Thank you Cheri and get well soon.
During all this, Cheri's husband Paul (who I talked about last week) is still in the hospital. They have really been going through it! Paul is in Rehab now and doing some better. Please continue your prayers and positive thoughts. They both need them!!!!!! Thanks so much!!! We love you guys!!
So, I have been considering making a change for quite some time. I thought about it and thought about it. And I decided to go for it....I went blonde!!! White blonde!!! With the help of my friend and cohort...Cheri! I am now a blonde and I love it!!
I decided my chocolate walled, raspberry ceiling bedroom needed a makeover!! So I am going with creamy beige (vanilla delight) walls and swan white ceiling with a new white ceiling fan with light!!
Well the second pic is a little blurry and the walls show yellow. Noooot!!! I will take more when the sun comes up. Forgot to take them yesterday! Sorry! But you get the idea. Dark and sexy to light and sassy! That is where I am going! Woot!!!!
Usually here I tell you to go visit Keely at The UnMom for Random Tuesday...but she is taking a hiatus! Sigh! So Stacy at Stacy Uncorked is sort of hosting it now and hoping Keely will return.
So I am joining that campaign as well! Ha!! We all enjoy the Randomizing...so come on back Keely...we miss you. And thanks Stacy for carrying on the banner!! I am with you kid!! Visit them both and say your hello's and join in with your Randomizing! You just haven't lived until you randomized for sure!!! Ha!
Did I tell you that my plastic surgery is scheduled for January, 2012?? Just saying! Woot!! Woo!!
I randomized until my butt is numb! Time to go! I need some coffee!! Thanks for stopping by and sharing this morning with me. Thank you Cliff for doing such a wonderful job painting my bedroom. Can't wait to see it finished!!
Have a magical and blessed day!
