Waiting on another round of tests for hubby. Each "good news" brings more frustration as we seek answers and get none.  

Hope you all have a great week and I will be back when/as I can.

Love to you & Happy First Day of Fall!!!!

If I made fun of you, I apologize-

No! I don't!

PICK YOUR FAVORITE FALL WEDDING TABLE

 

 As you know

 

                  ONE of the things I like doing is the

PICK YOUR FAVORITE
series .

We are still searching for answers

to hubby's medical issues

but this is a good distraction

for me!


My youngest daughter, Mimi, had

a beautiful Fall wedding.

It was outside by the Bay,

on a gorgeous Fall day full of 

Sun and Colored Leaves.

I thought it would be fun

to see some different 

FALL WEDDING TABLES...

from simple to simply extravagant.


Here's the deal.

You are invited to the wedding of your 

best friend's daughter.

You feel great.

Your hair looks good and you have the 

perfect dress and shoes
and you feel skinny!;>)

Which table do you want to sit at?
Seven choices- one for every day of the week-


#1

Arbor Lights


#2

Flowers Flowers Everywhere


#3

Pillars & Pumpkins With Stars

source


#4
Whoot It's Wheat

source


#5
Is Brown The New Black?

source


#6
Pumpkin On Plaid

source

#7
Rustically Refined

source


OK..

and ONE MORE for fun.


#8

IS COPPER COOL?

source


So-You know the drill
PICK ONE TABLE
that you would like to be seated at.


I'll be back after all the votes are in
to tell you who you will be sitting with.


ps-I am still hating the NEW blogger!

SEPTEMBER UPDATE

I have had several emails
asking why I haven't been posting
and wondering if everything is okay.

So, here I am-saying Hi!
I am going to fill you in.
Since April of 2019 
we have been on a journey
to find out why MyHero 
is having medical issues.
Many of you have asked
after his health.
I didn't want to say anything
because he was still a chaplain
at a local hospital.
As of today, he resigned.

He has endured numerous tests
these past few months.
Here's the good news!
Heart is perfect,
Bloodwork is perfect,
MRI of his head shows nothing
well there are some brains in there
Just had a chest x-ray and that looks okay.
Bad news?
We are back at square one with
2 more tests scheduled.
So-keep him in your prayers.

Meanwhile,
We have been camping on a site
in Door County, WI
with the Minnie Winnie.
Guess what?!
We are selling it!
Are we giving up camping?
Nope!
We are going glamping!
We bought a 5th wheel that is
set up on a permanent site
in the same park we have been in.


We met the previous owners today.
What lovely, lovely people.
They would have been great
camping neighbors.
But, they are in their 80s 
and felt it was time to do something else.
LUCKY US!

I can't wait to show it to you!
Here it is!
Okay- I might have lied about that!
Anyway--that 
WOULD BE FUN THOUGH
wouldn't it?

Fall is quite beautiful up here!
Okay-it's NOT REALLY my own
campground! (you nitpickers)

And-I am still in the process of
waiting for things to get done
here at the condo.
John's health issues have taken
priority so I don't go far from home.
No shopping-No treasures. lol

To be done:
Rug for dining room(one on order)
new lights in upper bathroom,
New faucets in upper bathroom.
Paint cabinets in upper bathroom.
Get window treatments up throughout.
Glass for tile shower enclosure-
using a shower curtain is driving me 
And, believe me, I haven't far to go.
Oh yes- also need-
smoke alarms (really?!)
fan in master bathroom,
too many little things to mention.

We moved in the week that 
COVID 19 shut everything down!
How lucky can I get?

I have had the opportunity to
sort through a lot of stuff.

Somehow, I have managed to keep my
SENSE OF HUMOR--
or maybe I am just crazy in general.
Shut up family!

So that is the 
Tale of Nana Diana.
I will be back with a 
PICK A FALL TABLE 
soon!

Headed up to the campground
right now and I have 
NO INTERNET UP THERE
so will catch up on Monday night.

RESULTS FOR PICK YOUR FAVORITE AUGUST WEDDING TABLE

WOW!
Sorry it has taken me so long
to pull this together.
I started this last Wednesday
and got it partly done 
and then had to quit.
When we go to the campground
I have NO internet and
very little cell-phone availability-
it is a 'dead spot' in Door County.
So...my collage says Wednesday-
even though it is Sunday.

First of all-
Thanks for playing along.
I have lots of people to seat
and make fun of.

Also noted-
MOST everyone commented
on how much they hate the 
NEW BLOGGER.
Hope the powers-that-be
are paying attention.

Without further ado---
#1-GREEN RUFFLES
A couple of you-won't mention names-
said table #1 with the ruffles
makes you want to puke.
Well-please keep your puke to yourself
so that these ladies can enjoy their pick.....lol

Susie-Said she LIKED the tablecloth
because she could wipe her hands on it
if she dropped her napkin...NEVER,
I repeat-NEVER invite her to a fancy dinner
at your house!

'tater salad and hula hoops and assorted other things!

Hmmm...Don't like any of the tables?
Create your own -which is just what
Sandra did AND 
Surprise! Surprise! Someone joined her---
it's bobbie (with no capital please)
bobbie is bringing chairs, lights and champagne.
Have at it, girls!

AND off to the side because she says she is
GRUMPY is Ann--she doesn't like any of the tables either.  lol  

Well, I am sure I screwed up somewhere;
left someone out-put them at the wrong table, etc.
Bear with me-I have lots going on.

BUT- Let me know if I left you out
or put you in the wrong place-
I can fix it! Yes. I. Can.
and Will!

LIFE & LINDA'S (Fairy Blog Mother) MOM HAS PASSED AWAY

I guess there is no easy way
to say that someone has
passed away, is there?

Most of you in Blogland know 
(also known as My Fairy Blog Mother).
She is such a giving person and has
helped so many over the years
solve blog issues.

Many of you know that 
Linda's mom lived with her
for quite a while.
She decided a couple of years ago
to move several hours away
and live closer to her son.
This is the only picture I could
find of her on Linda's blog.
Beautiful lady, wasn't she?

Sadly, her health was already compromised
and she declined in these last 
few weeks/months
after her move.

Linda contacted me yesterday to 
let me know that her
Mom had passed away.

Please send up a prayer for
Linda & her family.
If you are not a 'pray-er',
please send well wishes and
healing thoughts her way.

Thank you.
I will be around again soon to
do a wrap up on the 

Thanks to each and every one of you
that visit here.  
You are all special to me!

I figured if I didn't get back here soon,
y'all would forget my name. 

What better way to
reappear than with a

It is an outdoor wedding.
All you have to do is show up,
be on your best behavior,

about someone----
don't say anything....
come sit by me.

    OH YEAH!
Bring a mask that matches your outfit! 

                              Remember- 
Pick ONE TABLE--
Otherwise you will
PAY FOR YOUR OWN MEAL!

So, without further ado-
here we go!

Table #1
GREEN RUFFLES

Table #2
A Touch of Gold

Table #3
Love Those Lights
Table #4
Bring Your Own Chair
Table #5
Let Love Grow
Table #6
Frankly Loving Ferns
Table #7
Courtly Courtyard
Okay!  Now---
Pick a table and I will be back
in a few days to let you
know who you will be sitting with....
some of you are going to
be surprised!

OFF ON AN RV ADVETUTRE

PACKING UP
AND

of the area where we are located,
I really miss the connection to 
INTERNET
and having 
VERY LIMITED CELL PHONE 
service.

Hope everyone has a
Wonderful Weekend.

OUR ANGEL ANNA BELLA WOULD BE 15 TODAY-


Today our sweet 
AnnaBella
would be
15 years old.

WHERE have the years gone?
We held her for moments
in our arms but she is
forever in our heart.

She is sister to these
three special little girls
.
Hold every child/grandchild
tightly because you never
know how long they will
be yours -they are just
in the world
on loan.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY OLDEST SON-MR. T

I don't often mention
my oldest son, Mr. T,
on my blog.

However~
I am going to do it today.
Last year, he thought we all
FORGOT his birthday
because there was a surprise planned
for him for another day
and we kind of avoided acknowledging
his actual birthday.

Anyway, I want him to know 
I did not forget,
and will not forget it ever!!

Mr.T does NOT like a 
fuss made over him.
He runs from the camera like I do.
However, his wife, Lisa,  is pretty good at
MAKING HIM
have his picture taken.

His only flaw is that he has an
extra set of eyes on his forehead
which he often keeps covered with sunglasses.
oh~he is gonna get me for that
I tease him about it all the time.
To show that is NOT TRUE here is a
picture of him with his wife, Lisa.
Pretty handsome, huh?

Please wish him a happy birthday.
His life has undergone some major changes
in the past few of years.
I am proud of the man he has become
and, even more importantly,
I am proud to call him my son.

Happy Birthday, Tyler-
Love you to the moon and back!
