I am afraid that I have been amiss in posting and the only excuse I have is that my COPD raised it's ugly head and knocked me for a loop.  With the extreme heat, fires, Santa Ana winds and ash, it really bothered me.  But on to a few things I was up to.

This beautiful bouquet arrived the end of July for my Birthday from my sons girl friend.  She is a lovely woman and I hope they marry.

Shaun and Kim came down, took me to dinner and we visited for a while.  They were off to Newport Beach to spend the night and then the next day to San Diego.  Shaun put Kim on a plane to go home and he went out deep sea fishing. Always glad to see them.

BBQ with a few of my friends that I worked with at Amada.  We try to get together every few months.

Only two of the guys came and they were busy getting the BBQ ready.

My best friend Phyllis from Around Our House with her husband, Michael and Andrea who just graduated from college.  Andrea got her Masters Degree in Metal Health.  We had a great time.

Little Robin Rae on her first Birthday party in the park.  She is the granddaughter of the girl, Ginger who worked with me at Amada.  We have remained friends all these years.

Just a few pictures of my flowers that didn't do well with all the extreme heat we had this past summer.

One of my favorite roses.

Now on to Christmas.............

Well that's all for now, sorry this was such a long post.  Hopefully will have another one soon of my Spring flowers.

Wishing all of you a blessed Easter.



  1. I was so happy to see your post. It was so much fun to see all of your adventures ...you have been very busy.

    I don't know if I ever told you, but my son is named Sean too, we spell it differently but it is still the same name. Like your son mine is wonderful too - aren't we lucky.

    Take care, looking forward to your next post, I hope that you continue to feel better.

    1. Thanks so much to your kind comments. Yes, if your son is like my Shaun he is a wonderful young man. I raised him all by myself from 4 years old on and he was such a good boy and has turned into a beautiful man and wonderful father to Kelly. They have a special bond.

      I think I have lost all my blogging friends - I waited to long to post.

      Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.


    2. testimony of my life

      Good day everyone,my name is Jessica from USA i am here to testify about how i got a real and working blank ATM card from a good hacker on the internet, i was very poor before and i have been unemployed since 2015, i came across a post on the internet concerning the blank ATM card and i decided to give it a try,i agreed to the terms and conditions to receive the card.
      it worked like magic when i received this card and i was able to withdraw 5000$ daily with this card, i have a car of my own now and i have gotten a house too.
      if you need a real blank ATM card, contact this good hacker on his email mrfrankblankatmcard@gmail.com
      i post this here because i know you can also be favoured by this testimony.

  2. Mary - wow, you really caught us up, didn't you?

    Well the best part was all the love surrounding you - that sweet baby girl, and all those flowers - oh how I wish it would stop snowing and spring would come!!!! Such lovely flowers!

    Thank you for your visit! I just posted again tonight, a spring home tour.


    1. I wish you would get some nice Spring weather. Our has been nice all week and the Spring flowers and roses are in bloom.

      Wishing you and yours a Blessed Easter.


  4. Hi Mary. Enjoyed catching up with you. Your flowers and roses are beautiful. That arrangement is so gorgeous with the iris and the tulips. Glad you got to spend time with your family and hope you are feeling much better..Happy Week..xxoJudy

  5. Mary- I have away from blogging for a bit, too. It is so nice to see a post from you but sorry you have had so much trouble with your COPD. Shaun and his girl look like a perfect match. she is a very pretty girl.

    It is fun to see your fall and Christmas decorations and Kelly on the horse. She is sure growing up and a pretty girl, too.

    Your flowers are just gorgeous and your Spring decor looks beautiful. I know it is hard on you not to do all the decorating you used to do in the past but what you do today is equally beautiful.

    Love to you and Happy, Blessed Easter. xo Diana

  6. Mary it looks like you have been a busy gal. Glad to see a post from you lady. Hope you are feeling much better. Happy Easter. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Oh Mary, I'm so sorry you aren't and haven't been feeling well. But it is fun to catch up with you and holidays and I'm so glad you've had some visits with friends. That's always a lift. Sending good wishes for Easter and feeling better soon.

  8. So glad to see your post pop up in my email. That's the great thing about subscribing by email right? You don't miss a post. I'm hoping you get a better summer this year. Here's wishing you lots of rain and cooler weather to keep those pretty roses blooming. Happy to see you posting again, even if it is sporadic.

  9. Hi Mary! I hope you have a wonderful Easter! Take good care of yourself, friend.

  10. Hi Mary, oh I'm so sorry that you have not been feeling well. I hope you will rest and feel better soon. It is so nice to see that you have been spending time with friends and your family.
    I enjoyed looking at your photos and the pretty flowers. Take care and be well.

  11. It may have taken you a number of months, but I was so glad to see a new blog posting. It was well worth the wait, and a lot of fun to see what you have been up to. You shouldn’t feel the need to post a lot of pictures or text, just a few words and a photo every now and then would keep me happy. Your autumn table was stunning. I would have liked to have seen more. Spring is on the way, and I’m anxious to see more from you. Great post!

  12. Hello Mary,
    Sorry to hear that you haven't been well. I'm happy to read of your post and pictures of your decorations and flowers. California has been through a lot with the fires lately. I do hope you continue to have good health.

  13. Hi Mary! Lovely to catch up with you with all your goings on of the past six months! Your family time had to be at the top of your list of blessings, along with friends following a close second. Your garden looked good throughout the late summer/fall. Can't wait to see what comes next. Spring is taking its good ol time here! Believe it or not, I saw more Azalea advertised for a local estate sale (I didn't go). I couldn't believe it! I didn't even get to price it....just as well, right?

  14. Beautiful rose! Love the nutcrackers too.

    They need to find a cure for COPD.

    I am praying for you.

  15. Mary,
    I enjoyed this post seeing all your decorations!! I am so sorry to hear about your surgery. I have taken care of a few patients who had valve replacement done this way without having to open the chest. It is less invasive and provides a shorter recovery time for the patient. I will be praying for your safe and speedy recovery! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!! Take care, my friend and you will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers!

  16. Mary,
    I forgot to mention to THANK YOU for your prayers for my nephew. The colon cancer has spread to the liver but the aggressive Chemo that made him so ill did reduce the size of the liver lesions. He will be starting another round of that aggressive chemo soon and we pray it does not put him back in the hospital again like it did last time...

  17. Hi Mary,
    I was glad to see your post, but sad when I just visited Nana Diana and saw your prayer request. I'm so sorry you are having health issues and surgery. Please know that I will be praying for you. Take care and get some rest:) Sending you big hugs!

  18. Oh Mary, I just saw the prayer request for you on Diana's blog. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope everything goes well with your surgery, and I am saying a prayer for you.

    It looks like the flowers in your garden are starting to bloom. Spring has arrived here also, but it's supposed to rain this weekend. I loved seeing your candy tree and Nutcrackers even in April. Skittles is darling with her red bow. That chicken ornament is perfect for you.

    How are your roses coming along? It's so nice to see a post from you again, Mary. I'm thinking of you tonight and wishing you well. Sending comforting thoughts and love to you. : )


  19. Dear Mary, NanaDiana shared your prayer request and I wanted to send you much support and many hugs! I'm keeping you in my prayers, asking for your successful surgery and full recovery. May God Bless you and your family! Hugs! Leena

  20. Wow...Christmas just seems so long ago. Love looking at your pics. Looking back other comments I see you have been having health issues. Sometimes that makes it way into our life and she have to stop and care for us.....here is hoping for a fast and speedy recovery.

  21. You were very busy for athe past months. Friends, family decorating, and roses. So much we have in common. I hope your health issues are getting better. That certainly will take us away from blogging! Wishing you a wonderful week........

  22. Visiting from Marmalade Gypsy. I'm sorry that you have to go through surgery and I pray it will be the option you prefer and all will go well. You have a lovely home and family and friends and I'm sure they all bring you a lot of joy.

  23. OMG ... What a grand review...Quick and Easy (ZIP)... I’m so glad that you’re feeling better and had a chance to enjoy your beautiful family and that sweet baby girl. The rose pictures are gorgeous...I can’t wait for summer...Flower do give one the greatest pleasures, don’t they ....Love that little chicken ornament ( Too Cute) Take care and ENJOY each day as a BLESSING ...HUGS

  26. I'm here from your friend, Diana, Mary. I'm praying for you!
    God bless.

  27. I saw Nana Diana's post about you not feeling well. This is my prayer.
    Father God, I plead the blood of Jesus over Mary for healing. God I pray that you will create a new heart in her and renew a right spirit within her. You are the breath of life. I pray that you will clear her lungs and fill her with the breath of life. COPD be gone and healed in Jesus' name!
    Thank you Jesus! Holy Spirit please be close in her mind and heart in Jesus' name. Amen.

  28. Mary...i heard you are not feeling well....your posts have not been landing in my emails....My thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope you get well enough to have the procedure!....I am so happy that Shaun has a wonderful friend and she is wonderful to you too....Get well soon Mary!!!!

  29. Hi Mary! I'm checking in on you to see how you're doing. You've been in my prayers as Diana has told us you were sick. Sending you love and hugs.
    You're always a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  48. I'm here to testify about Mr John Blank ATM Cards which can withdraw money from any ATM machines around the world.. firstly I thought it was scam until I saw so many testimony about how Mr John sent them the ATM blank card and how it was used to withdraw money in any ATM machine and become rich so I decided to risk the opportunity I contacted him also and I applied for the Blank Card to my greatest surprise I have used it to get 10,000 dollars. maximum withdrawal daily $1,000, Mr John is giving out the card just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any ATM Machine Vault,If your interested kindly contact him directly on his email (johnlopez1945@gmail.com)


  49. I've been seeing posts and testimonials about BLANK ATM CARD but I never believed it, not until I tried it myself. It was on the 12th day of March. I was reading a post about places to visit in Slovakia when I saw this captivating post about how a Man described as Mr John changed his life with the help of a Blank Atm Card. I didn't believe it at first until I decided to reach him through the mail address attached to the post. To my greatest imagination, it was real. Right now am living up to a standard I never used to live before. Today might be your lucky day! Reach Mr Thomas via email:(thomassiguard522@gmail.com) see you on the brighter side of life.you can also contect him via WhatsApp:+17733492820
