I couldn't believe my eyes

Good morning everybody, I am feeling a tad better the last couple of days especially in the mornings so I eased out to feed the birds this morning. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Our Bartlett Pear Tree was putting on buds. They are gonna get killed for sure since it is supposed to drop down in the teens at night this week. The last two morning there has been a very heavy frost and in the upper 20's so I don't see how they made it through all that. Looks like the tips might have some damage.

Something funny happened this week I wanted to share with you. I didn't see it but Ken told me and I had a good laugh. Wish I had of had my camera ready.
Ken was going down the hallway carrying an armload of bedclothes and he felt like some were dragging the floor. He looked around and down and there was Daisy with a mouth full of clothes as if she were trying to help him LOL.
Have a blessed afternoon everyone.

Acted stupid and now in terrific pain

Hi everybody, It has been a mostly rainy day here today. I acted stupid Thursday morning and reached up with both arms to get the bird identifying book off my tall china cabinet where I keep it and pulled my back something fierce. I have been in severe pain ever since. Just can't sit at all. I did go to the urgent care clinic yesterday and got a torodol shot and it is helping some today. Using my ice pack every hour though and staying off my feet. I didn't read but a couple of blogs yesterday or this morning.
Ken called me out to see the moon last night and I took a couple pictures of it(picture above)then had to hit the bed with the ice pack. I just now stepped outside a few steps and took a couple of pictures of the narcissus that are blooming.
Ken is so good about doing things for me. I can't stand on my feet to do hardly anything
. He is doing most everything right now. I certainly appreciate it.

I am sorry that I haven't been updating my blog more often or commenting in others but this back is still driving me crazy. Also I hate for every entry I do to be negative. Maybe one day I will feel like doing better. Now I am off to use the ice pack again.
Have a blessed weekend everyone. Helen

Happy New Year

Anniston fireworks

Happy New Year Everybody.

May this year be the best year ever for each one of you. Bringing happiness, good health and good wealth.

I snagged this picture out of our local small town paper. This pretty scene was about five minutes from our house. No, we didn't attend it but we could hear it from here. It was around freezing so no I didn't step out to see if I could see it either.

Have a blessed year everyone. May God's blessings be upon each of you.
