Days {5} {6} {7} {8} {9} of 60 to 60

When I first decided to celebrate the 60 days 
Preceding my 60th birthday
I knew I wouldn't be able to blog everyday
But I really had no intention of going nearly a week between posts

Oh Well ~~

Day {5}
I met up with a friend and received my new rocks
Purely decorative to me 
Although some people would spend many $$ on them

I worked for awhile in the morning and then
Headed over to pick up my mom
So she could have her full body PET Scan done

She had not eaten all day
SO, when it was finally time for a meal
She did herself proud

Mom has always been a big eater
Although she only weight 97 lbs
But even the waiter was impressed that she finished 
The Entire Burger!!

There are times I have trouble sleeping after a busy day
I picked up my crochet hook
And worked a bit on this piece when I got home
Someday ~~ I will finish this

Day {6}
Had me on the road to my mom's again

Arizona lost her long term Senator last week
This was one way they honored Senator McCain
Our ADOT team come up with some 
Very creative signs during the year

Took mom in for her Oncology Visit
The results of her PET Scan and labs
Oh yeah, eating again!!

Everything was Perfect
Not signs of Cancer
Doctor Sud believes the mass they found in her spleen
Is residual scar tissue from her Whipple surgery 
Almost 12 years ago
We were and continue to Celebrate
Yes - With Water

I did go home and indulge in my 
Lemon Meringue pie from the night before

Day {7}
Truly this was a day about work
Having spent the previous 2 days
With mom and doctor appointments
I needed to get back to my desk

I am trying to and thinking about
Growing my hair long
At least my bangs out
It is such a struggle to figure out how to  keep them out of my face
And still have my hair look decent
It may just get chopped off again

Day {8}
 It actually didn't start where this photo was taken
I slept in and just relaxed a bit in the morning
My brother was in town from Texas
So, my sister, BIL, mom and I all hung out with him for the day

After I got home
I went out to my back yard and cut down my dead lemon tree
I have worked so hard to keep this thing alive since Mark's passing
But this summer just took it's toll and it died.
Sorry Mark

My brother had come back into town to pick up
Another load of items 
I won't share all of the photos
But getting this golf cart onto the trailer
Was A Hoot ~ well, for those of us watching
The wheel base was much more narrow 
Than the trailer panels and
Well, they had to 'rig' things to make it work
No Duck Tape was used in the process - LOL

Day {9}
I found my marbles
Although, they are not were they are supposed to be
Really, I needed to clean the jar
Again, something used for décor

I received my last couple of pieces of clothing 
I had ordered
I don't think I will need anything new
For A Very Long Time

After a long week
And super long day
I was greeted in my driveway
By a baby bunny 
It's momma was around as well

And 3 quail hanging out in the front yard
It was a nice treat
Although I live in the city
I certainly enjoy getting daily visits from creatures in the neighborhood

I will attempt to not keep my blogging day so spread out
But, I'm not making any promises
I'm still working toward embracing the changes in my life
And will at least share photos on Instagram

  1. You are moving right along on your countdown. I love those rocks you received. I am, along with hubby, a lover of rocks.

    How neat to see that wild life right there in your own yard in the city.

    I just went out to eat with friends Sun. night, and could not eat my whole burger and fries, so brought half of it home. I don't see how your Mom ate all of hers. So glad she's ok.

    Enjoy your week ~ FlowerLady

  2. Hi Cindy,
    So happy to hear about the good news on your mom. My mom is still battling her cancer but we are hopeful. I like you am on the road each week with treatments and doctor appointments with my mom. Your count down is going great. So happy to see things are moving along nicely. Love the pic of the little bunny. Adorable.
    Happy New Week,

  3. So glad you're mom is doing well, Cindy. I think bunnies and quail are super cute. We used to get a lot of quail in our Oregon home and I never tired of watching them. Love the sounds they make. Have a great week! Hugs.

  4. It sounds like you are taking each day as it comes and living it to the fullest. Can't do much better then that!

  5. I see your blog daily, it is crispy to study.
    Your blog is very useful for me & i like so much...
    Thanks for sharing the good information!
