A Beautiful Mess

Hello Sweet Friends

It's so wonderful to be feeling better
And able to enjoy time with My 3 K's

Today is photo overload
For which I am not sorry

Little Hands
Smiling Faces
Sweet Messes


My Youngest K~Baby
Who is NOT a baby anymore

This little Dear
K~Bel heading into 1st grade in 5 weeks

And My Oldest K~Bug
Who got her new glasses yesterday (loves them)
And is heading into 7th grade 
Where have the years gone 

It was a messy but Beautiful Day

It may be HOT
But time with these Sweet Girls
Makes me forget all else
It's a Beautiful Mess of a Life

Blessings to YOU

What I've Been Up To

Well Hello Sweet Friends

I am feeling some better
My numbers are telling me I should be

I think the excessive Heat we have been enduring
Over the past few weeks
Has also added to my lack of energy

However as my energy begins to increase
I am taking care of a few 'small' projects around the house

I bought this old buoy several months ago
To put out by the pool
I finally started painting it

It still needs a bit of touch up
But I think I will like it being freshened up

This metal flag needed some color restoration as well

That's better

My dear friend Lee was in town from Louisiana
I'm so thankful for her friendship
And being able to get together for a nice lunch
As well as some much needed chat time

Now that it is summer
I have all 3 K's on Thursdays
We hit the library this past week
And of course, The Pool 

After about 8 years of dark red drapes in my LR
I have finally decided to lighten things up

Out with the Red
In with the White

Washed, Dried, Folded
Ready to stow away or Give Away

I've also been blessed to watch this large family
Of Quail Grow Up

I've seen them nearly every day for a few weeks
They are getting so big
I think they are almost ready to leave the nest

Hoping to catch up on blogs this week
And get back to regular blogging very soon

Praying that you have a
Blessed Week Ahead

Cousin Day and A Few Answers

Hello Sweet Friends

I hope you have enjoyed a
Wonderful Weekend

Thursday is my Joy Day
And this past Thursday was no different
Now that summer has arrived and the kiddos are out of school
I had all 3 K's
Plus my niece came over with her 3 kids
Having time to watch the cousins play together
Is so refreshing

They get along so well
And enjoy each other's company

The kids are all so busy during the school year
That summer offers a fun time for
All of them to just hang out together

I LOVE Thursday's
I Especially LOVE Cousin Days

On another totally unrelated note:
My Health

In recent months I have become more and more exhausted
For seemingly no reason
In my desire to be strong and independent
I self diagnosed as depression
Due to the events of the past 8 months

However, when I got to the point
Where I struggled to get out of bed
And get ready for work in the mornings
I knew it was time to figure this out

Well, after a bit of lab work and a couple
Other minor tests
We have a diagnosis of
Severe Iron Deficiency Anemia

Honestly, I have been quite concerned
Because my dad was diagnosed with
Leukemia at my age which eventually took his life

So far, the tests are not leading in that direction
So I'm Thankful

More tests are being considered
Yet, for the next 3 weeks
This is my daily intake

We are taking a non invasive and
More gentle approach to getting my iron up
Before we look at more invasive
And more aggressive treatments and tests

I've been doing some research
And know this is a long process
I truly was hoping I'd feel better in a few days
But so far, not so much

At least I know why I've struggled to
Blog on a regular basis
By the time I get home from work
I'm pretty well finished for the day
And I've shared all the 'chores'
I've had to get done around here

I'm hoping as the weeks progress
I will find more energy
And blog more frequently
Or at least get by your blog for a visit

In the mean time
I'll be around as much as possible
And always appreciate your visits

And now
Because it is 115* outside
And I'm super HOT
I'll share one of my favorite photos
From many years ago
'In The Fall'

May you Be Blessed
