Sorry to have been missing from here

The weather has been so beautiful this past week. Today was even in the 40's. It was is nice that I really got spring fever! This is what I am looking forward to. A nice green yard again. I have to look at my pictures to remember just how green and colorful our yard is in the summer. I can't believe that our flowerbeds are all under about 6 years old. Each bed of course younger as we keep adding more. I went back to the first pictures from about 2005 and marvel on how much we have done in the backyard and front yard. Now with the weather we have been having the snow is melting and some of the green is starting to show. I know that we aren't done with snow yet. But it last for shorter periods of time now. Days are even getting longer!
Anyway I haven't been posting much. But there is a reason. I have been fighting with kidney stones the last 3 1/2 weeks. It has been all I can do to get through work, etc. I had 3 really bad days and the rest have been very uncomfortable. I had a Ct scan done on monday and the stones are lower so hopefully I will pass them soon. I am getting so tired and frustrated. I am not good with pain. But think I have held up pretty good. Just didn't want to write posts that sounded pitiful! Like poor me.
I am re-papering the Bellingham Farmhouse kitchen. I sort of killed the paper trying to put waincotting up. But I think I will actually like this new paper in there better. Still have some scraping to do. Maybe the house will like it better also and stop fighting me on everything. lol. This house for some reason doesn't seem to like my ideas. I don't know why I am having so much trouble. Usually I get ideas and they work the way I want. I think this house is just a diva. Very spoiled and can't make up it's mind. lol. I didn't win anything in the HBS (Hobby Builders supply) contest. But they gave all who entered a $30 gift certificate to the miniatures.com store. I am so happy with that as I can always use something, of course. Who can't? Bellingham needs the chair that matches the sofa I have already, so I will probably get that. I saw a cassorole dish that will also go good in there. "Aunt Gertie" has been pretty patient with the chaos which is her house. Some day she may have a home to live in!!!
Well anyway I hope top be on here more often. Teresa
P.S. I saw a magnet that said "Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them". I told my husband...WATCH OUT I AM GROWING MY OWN ROCKS TO THROW AT YOU. He is learning to duck...Just kidding.

Crystal Bowersox--Farmers Daughter
A story of her abusive childhood. I had tears in my eyes, both from the song and her voice. I just love both.

A little dry in the house lately! Murphy loves to "fluff up" the fleese blanket on the couch.
