~TIME TO THINK..A FEW PRAYERS...and lots of BBC movies~

I refuse to fret! So...let me tell you the most important things..first. :)

I have just finished watching the BBC series "The Pallisers" and it is simply wonderful! I will watch it again. I am now just beginning the series of "An American President." Though dry, it is a wonderful study of photo's of authentic old homes and lots of History! I love it! IF you have not watched "The Pallisers" believe should do it! I bought it at a garage sale some months ago for $2.00 and the man said "YOU are getting a deal!" and indeed he was right! :) What I bought was only four video's and after watching them, I was HOOKED! So...I went online and bought the entire series...I believe there are 26 episodes! What a joy it was to watch, especially since I had to be in bed!

So next, the not so good news. An early morning trip to the doctor. Not good. The doctor is puzzled and upset. My daughter, Sandy, who manages the practices of five doctors and has access to their opinions, says...yep...something is amiss! Wouldn't you KNOW it! :) If anyone can get into trouble without doing a thing, it's me. I go for tests.

I won't go into details...suffice to say that something caught me by the tail of my pj's as I slipped under that garden gate! Wish me luck...pray for me...whatever you must do, and I will be forever grateful. I want to live and I admit to being just a little frightened. Did I say "a little?" :)

Me on my 73rd birthday on October 8th. I know I have a nerve publishing myself in my robe...but I was just so proud of being up and about!
My daughter (I have four!) came over and made a little tea for me. Yes...sandwiches and all sorts of pastries. I didn't eat much but it was so wonderful just looking at the lovely way she laid it all out for me. My daughters and grand daughters share my love of cottage style in variations.

PLEASE DO CLICK on the photo's so you can see my lovely daughter, Mary and the lovely goodies she brought from my son and daughter in law's Bakery!

This about all I can do for today...back to bed..but it made me feel wonderful just doing this little bit.

Many hugs and much love to all of you!


  1. Blessings to you Mona. I hope that you are well soon. Put yourself in the Lord's hands. You look wonderful and your daughter is so sweet to take care of her Mom like that. We all need some TLC once in a while.

I admire the pink robe, I have a lilac one my sister gave me for Christmas one year and I LIVE in it. Much love to you and a speedy recovery. I miss you in blogland.
