Thank you and Penelope

Good evening Folks. Hope you all have had a lovely weekend.
I want to thank all of you for your birthday wishes.
Yesterday was a perfectly gorgeous day,
today it was gray, with some sprinkles and very windy.

I checked on the Accu-Weather website a little while ago,
and lo and behold,
it said our temperature was 25 degrees
and we were having snow.
All this week we are to have high temps in the mid 20's.
Hardy ha ha ha!
It was warm and humid here today.

Right now I have a tooth ache.
It's been bothering me for a week or so,
but is getting worse,
so I'm going to have to make an appointment tomorrow to get it taken care of.
Not something I am looking forward to at all.
I hate going to the dentist.
The dentist I was going to does not do extractions,
so I have to find someone else.
I know I'll feel better once this is done,
but right now my anxiety level is high.

Have a great week.

Here is Penelope, taken this morning. She is so pretty.

I'm sorry you have to go to the dentist; I don't like visiting the dentist either but dislike visiting the doctor even more! It's easy for me to say, but try not to worry too much.

Penelope is gorgeous.

Foot and teeth pain the worst! Hope it goes well! I'll be thinking of you!

I hate the dentist ... I will wait until I'm in writhing agony before I make a visit! So sorry to hear that you might need an extraction ... just close your eyes and dream of your garden in spring!

Penelope is gorgeous by the way.
Thank you also for visiting my blog ... I didn't know the Yellow Walking Iris would be familiar to someone over there. It's definitely a favourite in my garden. Thank you also for your kind words about my greenhouse garden ... it's a work in progress but it's a favourite garden space of mine.

Penelope is sweet and captured so nicely. I'm sorry I missed the birthday wishes... sounds like you had a lovely dinner and day. Belated best wishes for a wonderful year. And hope it goes well for you at the dentist.

Your Penelope rose is gorgeous. I have one which is just beginning to put out a few leaves, nowhere near blooming yet. I hope mine will be as lovely as yours! May you have a great week, in spite of the dentist and the weather.

Penelope is exactly as you say - gorgeous!

Hope the dentist makes the toothache go away. They are no fun.

Penelope is so gorgeous. Ugh, I hate going to the dentist too and I don't know why. Just the idea I guess.But there is nothing any worse than a toothache or an earache for that matter. Take care of that and get better.

Noelle said...

I do hope your tooth is taken care of soon so that you can feel better. I am glad that you had a wonderful birthday :-)

Happy belated birthday, Flowerlady! (I worked all weekend, so I'm catching up on post reading today.) I must be on the lookout for your Penelope! A trip to a rose nursery is in order.

Susan said...

Penelope is a real beauty. Hope you had a great birthday, despite the toothache. Best wishes to you when you visit the doctor. Often the apprehension is worse than the actual procedure. Hopefully, it will all be behind you soon.

As always your roses are the most beautiful and graceful. Such elegance in your photography.
I'm sorry you have to go to the dentist also. I don't care for it either but then who in the world does? Good grief. I will often take a couple of aspirin beforehand. It seems to calm my nerves a bit and makes it easier.

Happy belated birthday my dear friend!! Happy Tuesday and Wednesday as well. ;-)

Belated Happy Birthday!

Good luck with the dental appointment. I almost make myself sick with dread before one. They are never as bad as I think they will be. May yours go smoothly.

Penelope is everything a rose should be. She is absolutely my favorite color.
