@mini2z Friday Flashbacks

I was reading blogs this morning like I do every morning and Ness’s really spoke to me.  Friday Appreciation, A Pictorial of our Ordinary Life. 

I’ve had a busy two weeks, doctors appointments, sort of shopping, over packing, getting set up and recovery.  I had my birthday, yeah, closer to another milestone.  Apparently, I’m not allowed to regress in age and being caught in it.  I had so many wonderful birthday wishes on Facebook, texts, phone calls from my kidlets and a yummy cake from our oldest son and my daughter in law.  I forgot to take a picture of the cake.  They visited for a four wonderful days and after about 24 hours the three dogs, Keely, Ranger and Harley, who is my “grand puppy” and the boss, they learned to co-exist.  

Did I mention it was way to much for me?  I was sore at home, no motivation and the searing pain in my lower back and hips isn’t getting better but worse.  Well even with rest, hammock time, rest I’m still in a flare.

So here’s a few photos from the past week or so, up to and including today….

Pickachu in my house

I was so happy to spend time with my mom and grams.  My gram is 92 years young and she’s healthier than me. They were up early and I was able to snap a selfie.  My gram thinks it’s great to take “selfies”.  It was my gram and poppa who took me camping when I was younger.  I’ve passed this love onto my own family.  My son was in Algonquin Park this past weekend and he has a “selfie” oh him and a bull moose just wading in the water.  Did I mention my son is a bit crazy?  A moose that close would have freaked me out!

I was lucky and a Pickachu showed up IN my house!  Very lucky on my part!

So thankful for the reading I’ve been doing and books I bought from my birthday gift card including a swear word colouring book!

I miss my two youngest kidlets.  I’m in a lot of pain so I’m just doing what I can because I’ve done too much and my body is paying for it.

  • Oh how family (no matter how much you love them) can wear you down. It doesn’t matter if they are your favorite people in the whole world and you don’t have to lift a finger to wait on them, they still wear you out. But Hey,,, we love them anyway. Right???
    Hope you are recouping ..???💤💤💤💤💤💤💤

    • Getting there Brenda, today we’re going to get the pups to the dog park, they’re getting restless being on leashes and tie outs. Then we’re going to go to the grocery store….

      • Just saw your reply, I am a little slow checking my msgs. Been feeling crappier than usual. Hope all ur errands went good for you. Grocery store can be fun or frantic, But I usually see someone there that I get into a conversation with and end up staying way to long. Then I’m so tiredthat I don’t feel like putting the groceries away when I do get home. So guess who gets to?? Hubby.😊Hope you are ok, or as use as possible !

  • Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price?

    Thank you, I appreciate it!

    • I just switched from WordPress to self hosted via SiteGround, I’m still working on it still. But happy to hear it’s loading quickly, mini
