Best Nurse & Bohemian Chic Home Décor

Lovely flowers for Our Nurse, Zeke
In our home, he's been awarded
"Nurse of the Year"
He's watching over a special patient who had
oral surgery this week and hasn't left her side
~Pretty good, don't you think,
for dealing with an under the weather teen?

He doesn't sleep ~ he just watches
and hasn't left her side but for a couple minutes ;)

We did manage a very short walk this morning
it's in the high 80s and low 90s here now...

We had Fall weather last week, but now
it's gone...
Thought the neighbor's palm trees
on the corner were appropriate for the weather!
I received more giveaway goodies
(I think our super nice mail man wonders
what the heck I've been up to...
so many parcels to our home ;)
This is from Cathy~
The Victorian Garden Gourmet
and it smells wonderful!

Our daugher had a taste of the lavender sugar
and is looking forward to making scones sprinkled
with this sugar on top this weekend.

I absolutely love the packaging ~ so pretty!
...and did I mention how good
the pesto mix smells? (ooh yes, I did!)
You can find Cathy here

I've been waiting months for this...
I am planning to savor in this book
~*~ I hope, I hope ~*~
this evening (that is if no patient
needs are required for a bit...)

Robin Brown's book ~ Magnolia Pearl
(if you've been by Polly's blog you've heard
the news already ~ and lucky her, she's
going to Marburger next week)

This is going to be so inspirational
my whole house will be rearranged
possibly? Hmmm....

So this is why I haven't been around ~
The patient comes first and a little
daydreaming of living in
~*~ Fredericksburg ~*~
(or nearby with a Great Pyrenees by our sides
is in order!)

Leaving you with flowers from
My Petite Maison

Hope your days are bright and colorful
just like all the beautiful blooms

Hope this finds you all healthy & very happy!

Hi Tracie,

What a wonderful and sweet nurse you have! Such a loving doggie. I am looking forward to seeing that book, is it as wonderful as you imagined?

Stop on over, I left you something special on my blog.

Kindredly, Lynne Laura

Stink Bone Jones said...

Your flowers are MAGNIFIQUE! Your doggie is just adorable. I life in Florida and I cannot believe the gorgeous fall weather we had today. I hope it sticks around!

dana said...

AHHHHHH----your sweet furry nurse is just the BEST! I hope your Teen with the Tooth Surgery will be fit as a fiddle real soon!
We have had glorious weather here--it's scary, cuz I'm afraid of what lies ahead for us!
You have been a big recipient of give aways! What fun! I see you didn't sign up for my Pink Sat. Starter Kit giveaway, however!!!! You might have had a Pink Sat. Post ready to go at your little fingertips! ;-)
I have been reallllly busy and my blogging and blog reading have suffered---I missed you! Have you been watching GH? I didn't see it today, but I did yesterday. I do believe you called it on the Laura line! ( Lulu imagining her mom being awake!) Take care! Dana


Hey girl!
Just a quick check in to say hello. Getting ready for Fogfest and going a little insane with last minute madness. Hope all is well and glad to hear Zeke is maintaining his wonderful reputation.
Lisa & Alfie

Suzy said...

With such a nurse a recovery is guarantied. I can't believe that he didn't move, such a darling.
The flowers are adorable and since the weather here is still bad your 80-90 sounds wonderful.

With love, Suzy

Pearl said...

Hi Tracie... How precious of Zeke to be so loving and such a good nurse... ~hugs for Zeke~ ... I hope your special patient is doing better... UGH to the heat wave out there... You sure are blessed to get such lovely gifts in the mail... YAY!!

Those breathtaking Pink Lilies are just like the ones I carried when I got married... mmmmmmmmm... so pretty and just love, love, love their scent... Hope you're doing well, Sweetie... I am off for a nap and shall return this afternoon or evening... God bless...

~hugs, love ♥ 'n prayers~


Counting Your Blessings said...

Aw, your doggie is such a good pal! Oral surgery is horrible. Everyone should have a Zeke when they have such pain.

I see you're moving along in your book =) I'm on page 42. Everynight it's my treat - at the end of the busy day! Your purse is gorgeous peek out at us too. My husband has been warning me that I probably won't be able to get another bag while we're there. We're limited on our spending money but that's ok. I'm excited just to go!

Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend. If I don't talk to you before I go, I'll be back (perhaps not in full swing, but back) on Friday. Hugs, Polly


I hope your days are bright and beautiful also. Thanks for sharing.
