Monday, Monday!

It is a bit cloudy and rainy today and the perfect time to catch up with what's Going On!
This was all the Valentine's decorating I did this year.  The red heart was made by my Dad many years ago and is very special to me.
I took balloons and a little candy to the Grands and enjoyed a few hugs.
Scout has discovered my watercolors and is very interested in painting.  We will do much more soon!  I have some brushes and paints just for her.
Winter has been so dreary that I wanted a little color so found this cute pillow cover on Amazon.  I love having lots of pillow covers so I can change them out for seasonal and holiday decor. 
Annie has been napping with me most every day.  I'm healing well and slowly and I do mean slowly getting my energy back.  I went to WalMart with my Mom one day and made the mistake of walking instead of taking one of the riding carts.  I was more then ready to come home and it took me two days to recover.  However my Mom did buy me this for Valentine's Day!
I love Flamingos and this cute girl just jumped in my cart and came home with me.  I've named her Rose (Pink in French).  Along with my Flamingo pillow covers she makes a sweet corner on the couch!
A little trip to Trader Joe's was fun and this little Hyacinth plant was only $2.99
I can't wait for it to bloom!

So not much else going on.  
I've binged watched several shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Read at least 3 books and slept a great deal.  Healing is hard work.  

Wishing you Joy!

That pillow is adorable! Would make a great little quilt pattern.

Nice and beautiful photos there Linda. I have to say - I love that Flamingo - your mother is so sweet! We missed you at the Valentine Party. Glad you are feeling better!

You are so right Linda - it takes a lot of time to heal and patience too. Thanks for sharing some lovely pictures today. Hugs.

Glad you are doing better and getting stronger. Just have to figure out your limits I guess. Sounds like you are catching up on some reading time and good shows. Good for you. Enjoy. Enjoyed your post.
Have a great week.

So glad to see a post from you, Linda, and know you are healing. That's good news. And it looks like it is pretty at your house. I love your Dad's heart and I'm thinking maybe it's time to get your little one her own watercolors! Fun you can do that together.

Vicky Hunt said...

I'm sorry to hear you are having such a long recovery. Sounds like you are being patient and letting yourself heal properly though...:) Lots of sweetness in this post. I love Scout's painting and Rose is too cute! I need to go to Trader Joe's this weekend and see if they have the hyacinth's here. Beautiful! You take care my friend....Hugs & Blessings, Vicky

Linda, I'm sorry to hear that you've had such a difficult time healing, but I'm glad to hear that you are now doing better. Love your cat pillow and Scout's painting. The pink flamingo is so cute.
Keep getting better.


Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

It's hard to let yourself heal...and it can take much longer than you want! Glad you are letting your body tell you what it needs. That is the cutest cat pillow!

Healing is definitely slower as we get older. It's hard to be patient when we are ready to be out and about, but glad you are trying to take it easy. Cute pillow cover. xo Laura

Melanie said...

Healing from surgery is indeed hard work! It's amazing how tiring healing is. I love your cat pillow cover! Take good care of yourself, Linda. xoxo

Shelia said...

Hey friend! I'm glad you're feeling better and it was so nice to hear from you. Any more, I just don't have any energy. We're having company come for a few days and after cleaning two bathrooms I was beat! Getting old ain't for babies! :) Well, continue to take care of yourself.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Linda,
I've been away for awhile but am back to blogging and have missed you. I love the peach plate in your first photo. Is it McCoy? Hope you're feeling better and will be able to get out and about once Spring arrives. Following. ~Cheryl:-)

Stephanie said...

Oh Linda, I just LOVE the cat pillow you found on Amazon - too cute!

Thinking of you, dear one. Sending hugs your way!

Susan said...

Hi Linda...Catching up reading blog posts. Sooooo glad you are healing, albeit slowly. I LOVE your cat pillow cover. So colorful and darling. I saw the hyacinths in Trader Joe's just yesterday. Had already bought one at the It wafted some very beautiful scent. Your flamenco is cute. Nice of your Mama to buy her for you. Take care, Linda. I hope and pray you get stronger every day. Susan

Claudia said...

Hope you're feeling stronger every day, my friend. xoxo

I love you new pillow cover, too...just keep resting and get strong soon

Linda said...

That’s the way to get well......sleep and rest! It takes time and you’re doing it right!
Love the watercolor paper Scout did! When the quads were little, they would paint their papers and then I’d cut them into book markers, punch a hole in the top and thread a ribbon. I also used sayings I got from Hobby Lobby in the scrapbooking department. The kids loved to give these as gifts and I would use them as tuck ins when I sent notes and cards to people.

You did more Valentine decorating than I did! I’m wondering if I will get all the Easter things down?
Your flamingo pillows are so pretty and isn’t it just like a mother to buy their child a stuffed animal to encourage them when they are sick?
Praying for you as you recover......

Linda, glad you are healing well! It will take time to get your energy back. The heart is so sweet and I love the thermos! I love that Scout is painting with you!
