I'm still here...Look what I received TODAY!!! YIIPPEE

Finally got the computer back early in the week, verdict, 3 viruses. UGH, how this crap gets through the computer protection or the fact one has to worry about to say the least. Then, I have been trying to be a good girl and rest, UGH! I received my 2ND round of joint injections in the good old back on Monday... Rest for a couple of days. It's still feeling pretty good, some pain coming back, but no where near what it was so far! on the 17Th I go back and talk about burning the nerve ending in the place an HOPEFULLY it will make me pain free.... Just a scary thought to kill the nerve ending in one part of your back..... BUT Look what I got in the mail today!!!!! Didn't see this coming yet! What a fun surprise!!! I haven't had a chance to go through everything, but I did I SPY Robyn from Primlish in a picture!!! Robyn, your famous!!!!

Image, I open right up to a kitchen with wood counters!!! makes my heart skip a beat, oh someday!!!

Received a goodie package from Mandy over at Bittersweet Folkart Primitives. I had won in her giveaway! A yummy room spray and a great prim pattern! Thanks, Mandy! I am working on her new Uncle Sam Doll, I have 2 done and 2 more to go.....

I ordered a candle and tarts from Misi at the 1890 gable house. Love the smells, then I also won the drawing from the Tuesday display chain, so bonus candle! Love them, Thanks, Misi!!!

Then finally Thursday was out dropping few things off at the shop and such. Stopped in the antique shop in Genoa, found this great old jar.....YEAH I know, I really didn't need another old jar, but look at that shape?!!?!?!? So different! Filled it with some prim strawberries for summer.... Summer, it will come soon??Right??? even if we didn't get a Spring???

FINALLY, this week, my Tulips opened up...Still amazed they survived the construct over a year ago and made it...they are right at the edge of the new patio...So nice to see some color.

To my amazement today, Bleeding hearts! Not near as big the last couple of years, but we have been so cold...

Then still waiting.... hard to tell, but the buds are there in the weeping cherry tree. Thought it would of opened up by now, but soon????? Probably this week when we leave. Hubby and I taking a little road trip up the the Queen in MN. Boys staying home with Knuckles. Just a quick trip to take something to my BIL that he purchased off Craig's List down here. We picked it up and he's to excited to wait, LOL, so we will go up for a couple of days...Maybe hit a few antique shops along the way!

Had a great visit with a GF from High School, Kathy is the only one I still talk with from HS.. Haven't seen each other in a couple of years. had a few good laughs! Much need laughs! So important to laugh. I have forgotten that lately, so thanks Kathy! Off to read Primitive Place cover to cover! Really I vote for this to go monthly!!!! OLM

Marie, I do hope your back gets to feeling better soon. Don't you do any lifting or pushing or pulling. Please! Stop often and walk around to keep from getting stiff. They are doing wonderful things these days for pain. I would have to trust the doctor.
I am really loving that jar. Very unique.
Enjoy your trip! It's good to get away once in a while!

Glad to hear that your back is a little better...back pain is no fun. Hope the doc has the answer. Cool jar and love the strawberries in it. Have a safe road trip. I'll wait patiently for my magazine to looks wonderful. Tulips are so resilient and yours are beautiful. I'll have to correct that this fall.

Have a great weekend.

Hope your back is still feeling ok. I feel so bad for you and Karen with all your back troubles.
Great flower pics. Spring still hasn't arrived in northern Ohio. I think we had 2 days of spring and one of summer. Rain again today, but I know come August I will be praying to the rain gods!
Have a fun get-away with hubby. Find lots of new treasures to share with us!
Pug hugs :)

Well hello there OLM....what a nice post!
Well, they all are - but I like seeing your flowers.
I really enjoyed this issue of APP magazine this month as well.

About your pain....I'm there with you....going through the same things as you with shots and I'm also getting the Nerve Ablation.
Dr. said it's not permenant...the nerve endings usually grow back so you won't be 'nerveless' lol But you will get more relief for a much, much longer period of time...more like a year or two rather than 2-3 months. GOOD LUCK!

Enjoy your time away

Love your red tulips. Haven't gotten my magazine yet, maybe today, one of my favorites. I love wood countertops, a friend of mine has them, I would like to at some point. Glad your back is a little better, much success with that. Take care, Vicky
