K.U. HOSPITAL, WILSHIRE REHAP AND NOW WAITING AT HOME FOR RADIATION TO START!

BEAUTIFUL ART  GLASS  DISPLAYS  BETWEEN K.U. MEDICAL BLDG AND HOSPITAL

THEY ARE A SERIES OF THREE 


THEN THIS INTERESTING PIECE OF ART IS DISPLAY IN THE HOSPITAL LOBBY BY THE GIFT SHOP


ONE SATURDAY MORNING AS I WAS GOING TO THE HOSPITAL I WAS THINKING YEAH IT'S SATURDAY NO TRAFFIC!  WRONG!

I WAS CAUGHT UP IN A HUGE RUN! JUST HAD TO PARK AND WAIT IT OUT! I HAD STOPPED AT MCDONALD'S AND WAS GOING TO HAVE MY BREAKFAST WITH JUDY, SO I HAD BREAKFAST WHILE VIEWING THE RUN FROM MY CAR!

THE HOSPITAL GROUNDS CREW WERE PLANTING WINTER PANSY'S ONE MORNING EARLY!

ALWAYS HAVE MY HANDWORK WITH ME!

CHRISTMAS TREE GARLANDS

WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET OUT SOME EACH DAY.  THIS SHOP WAS  A REAL TREAT!

JUDY WAS GETTING THERAPY AGAIN AT WILSHIRE. THIS TIME AFTER THEY PUT A STEEL ROD IN HER FEMUR. DUE TO CANCER DETERIORATION.

VICTORIA POSING FOR A DOGGIE PAINTING SOME DAY!

SHE STAYED DOWN AT THE FARM WITH MY HUSBAND MAURICE  AND OUR LITTLE DOG TASHA WHILE I WAS IN THE CITY AND JUDY WAS IN THE HOSPITAL.  THE DOGS EACH HAD THEIR OWN DOGGIE BEDS BUT OF COURSE THE OTHER DOGS BED WAS  MUCH MORE INTERESTING THAN THEIR OWN!

ONE MORNING WE DECIDED TO PLAY LIKE WE WERE ON A ROAD TRIP AND GO TO CRACKER BARREL FOR BREAKFAST. BUT THAT'S AS FAR AS OUR ROAD TRIP WENT!  IT WAS A NICE OUTING ANYWAY!

LAST SATURDAY AFTER PICKING UP HER MEDICINE WE DECIDED TO GO TO A LITTLE SHOP WE BOTH HAD BEEN WANTING TO VISIT.  WHAT A NICE SURPRISE. IT WAS CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE!

SO MUCH TO LOOK AT!!

THEY WERE STILL ADDING THINGS!!  WISHING YOU SOME HAPPY SURPRISES TOO!

IT'S ALL ABOUT GETTING SISTER JUDY BACK TO GOOD HEALTH RIGHT NOW!

Judy and I have so much fun being together.  But the word Cancer has entered into our conversation now! I know many of you have experienced this also! It puts everything else on hold, and points out what things are most important!  I am staying in the city at her house.  Husband Maurice and the dog are here right now too. Her children and grandchildren are great  bestowing their love on her and time with her while holding down their jobs, going to school and responsibilities too!  We are all working and praying for a good recovery! Will get back to sending regular posts after we get a handle on this!   Here's wishing you all good health and happy days!

ROARING RIVER DELUXE SKILLET BREAKFAST!

My 61st wedding anniversary breakfast!! It was HUGE and DELICIOUS!!  Of course I couldn't eat all of it, but I gave it a run for it's money!! Maurice's (small compared to mine) plate of pancakes is in the background!

And of course he went walking while I worked on my handwork!

Fishermen were busy cleaning their fish after a 7:00 a.m. start!

This is the Inn we stay at right up the hill from the campground. It was foggy when I took this picture.

They have Bluegrass Music on Friday nights and Church on Sunday A.M. in the park. But part of the time it's in the Lobby of the Inn

So we lucked out and got to watch and listen in the a/c lobby. I couldn't get a good picture because of the lighting. there were 4 main musicians with several guest performers and a couple of children.  The show was 2 hours long with a good turnout of locals and campers.

I've never noticed these huge crows on the roof before, but the receptionist said it's a common sight. Sometimes they cover the top of the water tower too she said.

We come across a "RePurposed Fair" Sat in Monett, Mo. Really had some neat things! I thought it a clever idea!
They had furniture, clothing, pottery, plants,jewelry and of course food! Even had stuff for fairy houses!

This  top was my purchase! I'm going to use it as a pattern to make me some more for fall and winter!

I wore it Sunday for church.

Always enjoy the interestingly decorated shops!
I got this neat lampshade from Susie Childs at her shop "Tullies" in Booneville, Mo recently. Just love the way it looks in my Art Studio!

Close Up.

This little apple chalk plaque reminded me of  what use to hang in peoples kitchens so of course I needed it!

A cute little hanging planter that will go somewhere?

We stopped at this old cafe in Nevada, Mo. for breakfast at the start of our trip' Food was good'
Such a cute old  DX Gas Station in Cassville, Mo. Hope you are having some get-away time too before winter sets in!  My second blog is: www.preciouscottage,blogspot.com hope you'll visit it too!
