This and that.....

Hello, my friends.  Early this morning I took a walk in the garden.  With the sun we had yesterday and the heavy rain last night, things are growing like crazy!  I picked a gardenia and brought it inside.  My neighbor gave me the small gardenia bush last year and this year it is full of blooms.  I planted it by the back screened in porch where we can enjoy it's fragrance.  

I realized I left you hanging as to how I made out at the doctor a few weeks ago.  All is fine, however I am not out of the woods for at least another four years.  Appointments have been scheduled in advance and I will have to have a scan for osteoporosis since the one drug I am taking for my being hormone receptor positive is not a big help to my bones.  So I am doing resistance exercises and walking and moving and keeping busy, and enjoying life, since I have been feeling great.  Also staying positive and looking to the future.  

Yesterday I hung new drapes in the study.  I'll take photos later to show you the room.  

Galen and I will be heading to the beach on Tuesday to enjoy the day with my sister and her husband.  Can't wait to walk on the beach, stick my feet in the ocean, and eat lots of fresh sea food!  

Enjoy your week!

So glad to hear that you had a good report at the doctor's visit.
How nice of your neighbor to give you the pretty gardenia bush. They smell so good. You chose a perfect spot to plant it.
Enjoy your time at the beach. Happy Summer!!

Hi Donna,
Glad to hear the report was good.
I think that gardenia is my favorite scent. I've never had luck growing them, however.
Have a wonderful time at the beach.

So glad you got a good report and are feeling well. I am so jealous that you are going to the beach-but it is too hot here to go to the beach!
