HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!!
Thank you Beverly at
for hosting this weekly gathering of friends who have a lot of PINK mixed in with their gray matter!!!
I am back!
I was sick another week (missed two weeks of work) but went back on Tuesday and worked Tues (13 hrs), Wed (13.5 hrs), Thurs (14.75 hrs). On Friday I felt like I had been hit by a truck, but I went out for lunch with my girlfriend, Wendy, and that helped a great deal. We only had a couple of hours together, but we enjoyed a fabulous lunch at a new seafood restaurant in Belleville. It is called "Kalay's". I had their pan-seared Digby Scallops and they were Delicious, Exquisite, Plump and for lack of a better word YUMMY-SCRUMPIOUS!!!!! Do I need to tell you I love scallops??!!!
I came home from dropping Wendy off, picked up my daughter, Alyx, to drive her back into the city for work and promptly came home and went to bed at 3:30 in the afternoon and slept until after 6 pm.
So, today is Saturday and I feel much better after a good nights sleep.
This is what greeted me as I entered my livingroom.
This is my Clivia. Many years ago my Mom gave me a baby plant from her ancient plant and this is that same baby plant today. I think she is twenty years old!
The next 2 pics below were taken 7 days ago when she was begining to open her flowers.
And today she is in full bloom!
My latest treasure is an antique Mueller Volksteadt Dresden lamp.
It is soooooo beautiful!!! I think she is from the 1920's to the 1930's.
She needs a very gentle bath in warm soapy water, a new cord and a special shade. When I get her all spiffied-up I will do a post about her!
I hope everyone has a restfull!!!!! and wonderful weekend!
