A Day of Celebration!

  My mom is having her birthday Wed. Feb. 27th. but we celebrated today at the Rehab Center

where she is at. We tried so hard to make it a surprise but one of the nurses still let it slip, but it

still was a great day. My grandson Cole was sick so Stephanie and her family weren't able to make it.

  First I will let you know that mom had an appointment at Charlottesville Wed. with her Orthopedic Dr.

Her Dr. was so pleased with the healing of her arm and leg. He said two more weeks,  and she will be

able to do weight bearing exercises with her arm and begin putting weight on her leg. Then learning to

walk and do activities of daily living. So hopefully in 4- 6 weeks she will finally get home. She has been

in the hospital or rehab except for a few hours since Jan. 7th. It has been a long ordeal for mom and dad.

  I am so lucky to still be blessed with my parents and my sisters, now some of the party pictures.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
