Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes for my back. I am happy to report that I am doing much better. Although my back does bother me by the end of the day and it feels really good to get horizontal.
Below are the two huge & heavy cement flower pots, one tipped is the one that strained my muscles. It was filled with water, so a mosquito breeder, because roots had plugged up the drain hole. I've got to pull out the roots once they dry up, then figure out something else to put in theses pots. I do have them up on small bits of tile. The other one drains ok. We paid $5 or $10 for both of these at a yard sale many, many years ago. They are early Florida pieces.
The other night I was watching some cat videos on You-Tube and Miss Tork was sitting on my printer also watching. (Excuse my messy desk, I cleaned it off in the next day or so, so it looks much better now.)
Once cold morning I looked out into the secret garden and there were birds taking baths. I'm not sure, but I think these are little finches. They have the sweetest little chirp.
Here are two of my three 'barn girls. They love the barn. Lots of places to hide and DH rigged runways to get to higher places where they like to hang out in the windows up there looking out at the world. When it is cold, I cover this wire cage that's out there and fill it with blankets and they nestle in all together. I caught two of them the other morning. These two are sisters will be 11 years old this year. The one in front is 'Shystie', one in back was the runt of that litter and she's 'Tootie'.
Shystie is shy. :-) but more friendly these days.
Yesterday I came across a velvet patchwork vest that I wore in our little private 'renew our vows' wedding ceremony a few years back. It is too small for me these days and I got the idea to make a couple of heart pillows out of it, so that's what I did yesterday, finishing up this morning. I did not do any embellishing, just left it as it was. I am happy with them. They are 10 inches wide by 9 inches high. Here's a picture of us on that celebratory day. Barefoot on an old Indian rug.
So, with Valentine's Day being here, let us think on this, it is a day to celebrate love, whether we are married or single. This is my 3rd V-day without my dear husband, but I have many, many memories and lots of love in my heart from and for him. We all need love, we all can give love.
