My sister's surgery was such an amazing success - she is off the ventilator, off most of her meds (but pain medicine), awake and coherent now and she should be out of ICU by Wednesday and into a regular room where my kids can visit her (they adore their Aunt Sara - it's like having another kid around sometimes). Her heart is functioning the way it should, so she should be set for a few years now.
Does anyone else take pictures of flower beds and gardens while driving down the road? I realized I have a bunch of pictures of flower beds that I see that I like on my computer at home, so I can someday (?) duplicate them.
I ordered some seeds yesterday - can't wait to get started. Of course, when I'm planting all these plants this spring, I'll be wondering why I want to work so hard. . . . but when it comes time to eat it all, we will be so thankful to have fresh fruits and veggies - and since my kids don't like a lot of sweets, it will be nice. They'd rather eat a cucumber than a cookie.
