Flowers, my kitchen, my cat, and my mom.

See that on my blog banner?
"...little bits of random"?
Well, here we are, folks.


I've been known to buy flowers for myself, quite frequently. My standard picks are daisies and sunflowers, or mixed spring bouquets, but never roses. Well, last week my grocery store had these beauties and I just couldn't resist them. Doug seemed a bit surprised when I brought them home and I assured him I won't make that a habit - I'll save the rose buying for him. ;o)

Don't you think they look pretty on our kitchen table?

Little miss Fancy Jane occupies my chair most of the time here lately. I've been known to sit across the table rather than booting her out of my her spot. Spoiled kitty.

And here's the part about my mom:  Every three weeks my mom gets chemo, and today is one of those days. Her doctor added a new medication to the mix of chemo drugs last time and it was really hard on her. We would sure appreciate a few extra thoughts and prayers today and over the next week(+) as her body processes this new medication. Thanks, friends. And go Team Teal!!! xo

Oh how I would love to spend a slow morning here in my kitchen, chatting with my mom {or you} and sipping on a glass of iced tea. But alas...it's time to get ready for work.

Happy Tuesday, everyone.

Positive thoughts are on their way to you and your mom. I know how hard it is to be so far away when she is hurting.
