Yellow-Rumped Warbler

Sitting right outside my home office window.

I wasn't going to get up and get the camera,
I was sure he would just fly off.
I enjoyed him for a minute and then I went for the camera,
I had to change the lens...surely he would be gone!!

But he wasn't, he stayed.
And as an added bonus, he posed!!
Don't you just love the white eye liner??

Sending out a big hug to my special friend Theresa at

Movie Night

Last night was movie night at home!!

We watched Bridesmaids,
I didn't love it!!
There were some funny parts,
Melissa McCarthy (Megan), in my opinion stole the show!!

I did however love this...

with extra of this...

which turned in to this!!

We used the snowflake bowls because...

this was happening outside!!

It was so pretty to watch but it didn't stick to the ground,  I wish it had!!

So how about you guys...who got snow yesterday??

but only ever so slightly!!

This was taken through the glass at my home office window
on a beautiful sunny day!!

It's cold and raining today. An inside day, to do inside things.
I actually love a good rainy day!!

Fill'er Up...

Do you say that, when you go to the gas station..."fill'er up"??

Every fourth Friday, I go for my "refill"...but a refill of a different kind!! 
I receive the medication for the MS monster that invades my body!!
I always go on Friday, and today was my day!!

We all try to make it fun.
My contribution?? You guessed it...cupcakes!! 
I baked these for the nurses and other patients!!

These were for my nurse Michele to bring home for her son Stephen, who I personally adore!!
He sends me his requests and suggestions through Facebook.
How could you not love that!!
Also worth noting is that I shared my peeps with Steven,
now that's love!!

I loved the spider web cupcakes but could not find the spider rings
that are suppose to go on top!!

I also made a tray for Kim to bring home for her children.

Here's Kim, doing her best America's Next Top Model impression!!
She is the kindest nurse I know.

Kim gets to stick me and she gets me, first stick, every. single. time.

Our infusion suite...fancy, right??

My infusion mate Dan, is he not adorable??
He's taken girls. He has an adorable new baby girl
and an amazingly devoted wife!!

Two more of my infusion buddies on the left,
Dan's Mom on the right.

I have blogged about my infusions before,
here, here and here.

It's not too exciting but I love sharing that I know how to do links,
because for me, that's a big deal!! 

I'm home now, exhausted and glad it's over!!

The cupcakes were a big hit!!

The Jackson Diner

This is NOT you're typical diner, what a fun place to eat...

50's style diner...

look at all those colors,

and all kinds of fun memoribalia on that shelf.

This was the view when we walked in the door,
I'm not going to say that I almost "wet my pants"!!

I LOVED these hand painted murals.

So fun and so much detail, these were amazing!!

This is the outside of the diner...
It was "diner food" so I did not take pictures of the grub!!
 We ate junk food anyway. This was a super fun "diner dinner"
on July 25, 2011!!

My computer is with the "computer guy", getting healthy!!

This entry is one of those posts I prepared and then did not share
because I always had something "better"!!

Now, I like it, especially since all my pictures are on my other computer!!
