Oh dear, the longer I go without posting the more difficult it gets. 

I know I have been MIA but I have good reason.  Heaven help me..I've had a bad bout of the flu, up for three days and a relapse!  Back up and running though!  I have been trying to visit but haven't done very well.  Been trying.  Honest.   Those little email reminders are really nice.  I can keep up with those..
Wrenna Dawn and me. 

Wren's plans fell through but I am not certain what happened yet.  I admit I am relieved.  I am hoping she is on her way home soon!  She is such a little adventurer that I doubt she is any rush to get home.  I am hoping she has an open ended ticket.  I admit I am very nervous. 

I went out and did a tiny bit of shopping today.  Bathroom rugs for both baths.  Mine are pale pink..and PH's are a pretty green.  Looks nice but I was worn out in a very short time.
Back on the vitamins tomorrow now that the tummy can handle them.   

I'm too lazy to see if I have already posted these.  I hope not.  I want her home, NOW! :)

I was never as brave as she is and I am still not.  She takes after her Grandpa, not me.  He was a warrior and out to conquor the world.  I wish she remembered more about him.  She remembers him, but not really very well.  They would have had so much to talk about!  Her mother is like her too.
Independent and lives life to the fullest! 

That's good, isn't it? 

  She is so patient with her Grandma.

Well, she does have my coloring, or what USED to be my coloring.  *sigh*
Is it true your nose and ears keep growing when you get older??!!! 
 I think maybe they do!!  :)
Patient Husband did such a good photography job!  Thanks hon!

Love to all,

Hope you continue to get better, Mona. Flu just knocks the stuffing out of you doesnt it? Do you have flu vaccinations over there, we have them here for anyone that wants them. Keep reminding my husband to book his (hes only got 1 and a bit of lung) and he usually ends up getting the flu! You and your gorgeous granddaughter look so alike, definitely a chip off the block! Glad you are back, look forward to reading your blog always. Lots of love AnneMarie xx

Oh Mona so sorry you have been sick. The flu is wicked stuff. Hope you are totally well soon. Great pics. Hugs, Marty

Happy to hear you are feeling better:) Can't wait to hear all about Wren's adventures! Have a blessed and beautiful day dear Mona! HUGS!

Shelia said...

Hi Mona! Sorry to hear you've been sick. You take your vitamins and get totally well. These are beautiful snaps of you and your granddaughter. I think she looks like her pretty grandma. :) You take care and I love that red sofa! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I know how you feel, Mona. I had the stomach flu last week and it knocked me for a loop. Hopefully we are both over it for the rest of the winter.

Wren is just beautiful...I hope she makes it home soon so you can rest in peace! And...she definitely gets her beauty from her grandma!

Balisha said...

Hi Mona, What a beautiful girl...looks like her Grandma.
Continue feeling good and take those vitamins. When we get older...things hit us harder...we need all the protection that we can get.
Hope your day is beautiful..

NanaDiana said...

I hope you are completely over the flu soon, Mona. That is too bad-especially at this time of year it is even more miserable.
Your granddaughter is a beautiful girl- I think she looks like you. I hope she is home safe and sound soon- xo Diana

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Gorgeous photos of the two of you.

Sorry her plans fell through. There are probably bigger and better things awaiting her in life.

Debby said...

Great pictures. You are both beautiful. Sorry you have had the flu. When we have tummy problems an upset can really throw you off. Glad that your granddaughter's plans changed. That sounded way too dangerous to me. Feel better.

yaya said...

Your Granddaughter does look like you! She's a beauty, as you are too! She also looks alot like another blogger I follow. They could be sisters! I'm glad the flu is better. Take care of yourself!

Chatty Crone said...

I have been worried. I am glad to know you are okay. Sorry you had the flu. Mona you are beautiful and your granddaughter is too. sandie - hugs and prayers.

Amy said...

So glad you're feeling better. You granddaughter sounds delightful and I know where she gets her good looks from! ~Amy

susie @ persimmon moon cottage said...

Hope you are fully recovered from the flu very soon. The photos of you and your granddaughter are great, with your little pomeranian posing for all she's worth. Your granddaughter is beautiful. She looks very much like you.

Star said...

Get well soon Mona. Your grand-daughter is very pretty. I can see that she takes after you :) Yes, that last photo is extraordinary and it's nice to see that long bit of hair beneath your ear. Just lovely.

racheld said...

Feel better soon, Sweetpea!! That flu can really sap your energy.

I'll be glad when you hear that Your Girl is home safely, and know you'll just breathe a sigh of relief to have her in a hug again.

And with all those fabulous cooks in your family, this is probably the year that you should just watch, beam and enjoy!



bj said...

Both of you are just gorgeous.
I know you are ready for her to be home....I have one grandson off in Portland and I miss him like crazy. Coming home for Christmas, tho. Yay.

Did ya'll get a new camera? These photos are awesome.:)

Happy Thanksgiving, dear heart.
I hope you feel 100 percent soon.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Dear Mona, I am glad to read that you are feeling better, but sorry the flub bug got to you, hopefully that is over now. The photos of you and Wren (lovely name) are wonderful and PH Howard did justice to you both lovely ladies. And, like yourself, also happy that Wren is safely en route home, but sure her adventurous spirit remains undaunted. I have also been lax on blog posting and reading due to recent road trips and some family issues.
Wishing you and yours a lovely Thanksgiving.

Comiendo en LA said...

Ohhh nooo!! What happened with her plans?? I hope everything is fine! Beautiful pictures!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hope your feeling better Mona!
Miss ya, and i am always happy to see a post.
Happy Thanksgiving, thinking of you and your family.
P.S. Beautiful pics too!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

These are such beautiful photos! I sure hope you feel better now! Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friend and to your sweet family! Enjoy this special day. God bless!

So good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Hugs, Marty

I do not write a lot of comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here "~SHE AND ME..MAKING MEMORIES~".

And I do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look like a few of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

So in place of strolling at a steady tempo for say an hour, you'd transform items up by alternating quick bursts of extreme strolling for say a minute followed by a recovery period with slower walking after every single intense time period. Just maintain alternating for twenty minutes to begin and include time as you come to be additional fit. You could use interval education with all phases of thegreen coffee bean extract to enhance your outcomes.

Also once you do any form of exercising it's strongly suggested that you drink plenty of water just before all through and immediately after to
help keep one's body properly hydrated.

So as an alternative to strolling at a steady pace for say
an hour, you'll adjust things up by alternating quick bursts of intense walking for say a minute followed by a recovery time period with slower walking after just about every extreme time period. Just keep alternating for 20 minutes to begin and include time while you turn out to be far more fit. You may use interval teaching with all phases with theprocera memory to boost your final results.

Also once you do any type of workout it's strongly advised
that you drink tons of water in advance of all through and just after to keep your
entire body thoroughly hydrated.
