THE CURTAIN ARE DONE - DAUGHTER IS SMILING!












I did it! I am so tried, but the curtains to my daughter's living room and to my guess room are complete. On top of that, I still was able to prune 6 roses and move one very large tree to it's new home in the from yard. I only had one problem, I fell, on my knees, of course, it is always the bad knees. So tonight, I am doing the ice and heat thing. I hope I can walk tomorrow. It is a pain to get old.

I also managed to help my son, Kyle, enroll in his classes next semester. The best part of the day, was a quick visit to the thrift store. I found jewelry, to my delight and a funky lamp. I only took pictures of the jewelry, tomorrow I will show you the rest. It was very exciting. I have also included more picture of the "white house" and will soon be the "pink & red house".

Sorry for the short post, buy my knees are throbbing! Not a good sign, I have to lay down. Did you notice I am trying to stay focused? Thanks for your prayers. I believe I am in the middle of a real change here!

Don't forget my give way. You can read about it in the post below. Blessings my dear friend! Enjoy your day! Martha

My prayers will be with you,I know you're hurting bad, so please let people help you. I've looked and looked at your pretty post, the jewelry is so very pretty. You found some real treasures there.
Please take care and stay off your feet as much as possible.

All right, the curtains are done! We daughters love it when our Mamas spoil us. It sounds like you may have overdone it a bit with your knees. I'm sorry to hear they're hurting you. I know how mine can burn when I go up and down a ladder a lot so I can imagine yours are much worse. No fun. Take care and I can't wait to see your new jewelery!

Now don't you go overdoing it! Yes it is always the case that if you hurt something it will always be the very bit that was already a problem! suzie xxx

Martha, you found some fab jewelry!
You got quite a bit done, I'd say. I am sorry about your knees. Have you tried Epsom salt baths? I do it every morning.It really helps my joints and muscles. (as always, check with your doctor first, just in case)
Thank you for sharing again : )
