loved by the sun

sunday was laced in sunshine.

monday blanketed with clouds.

not really complaining.

just saying.

been having a difficult time getting inspired to take photos again.

and keep up with this blog.

always a work in progress I guess.


I think I just need a good kick in the pants.

I'll be back tomorrow.

with a long overdue home tour!

been missing those...

until then,

happy monday!

little bit of love

feeling moments of "normal" again

my sister coming to visit for a gal's weekend

remembering how he proposed

puppy kisses

sharing dinner recipes

getting rid of "the beast" (CPM machine)

a clean house!


hmmm...  I don't think my house has been this clean since right before surgery, the first time.

it feels so good.

another chilly day - I can barely feel my toes!

must retreat to the covers.

my mother in law is having knee surgery today.

we will all be praying for her.


hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

little things

Noah's toy left in the kitchen after an early morning puppy fit.  Since it is so cold, he hasn't gone on many walks this week and is definitely going a bit stir crazy.

long sleeve shirts with thumb holes

down blankets

actually, down anything at the moment to keep me warm

josh writing the date on the to go box at the pizza shop, then drawing slices of pizza on the box

home made stew and cornbread

exercising in the pool

a sweet call from a friend I don't talk to as often as I would like

did  I mention down blankets...


so sorry once again for my absence this week.

spending 6-8 hours on my knee CPM machine takes up most of my free time.

I'm starting a workout routine at the gym to help bring the rest of my strength back as well.

physical therapy every day really does seem to be helping my knee...  even if the progress is a little slow.

it is still progress.

hope you all are staying warm wherever you may be.
