animated-good-morning-image-0022.gif Sweet Peeps and thank you one and all for visiting and good wishes, always appreciated. xx

@Mojo333 my Little Southern Belle. Keep up your good work and please stay safe.

@Layla ... I pray you are safe with the riots, weather and virus!

@leejaa ... I love perfection and beauty and like to share.

@marieltha ... I hope you are safe from Christobal and that your flowers are blooming for you to enjoy.

@Sara61 ... I appreciate your thoughts on not wanting to be a carrier! We WILL meet some day and sit in the Arbour, hopefully in the not too distant future. Phoenix is my Orthopedic arm crutch by Funkrutch ... she is Fuschia Pink/Purple with a black/pink/blue/silver floral stem, classy. I named her Phoenix as I am rising from the ashes with her assistance. I have a dozen canes, all floral plus one leopard print all named, mostly Southern names (Miss Kitty, Lula Belle, Ole Blue ...). Here is Phoenix ...

Good morning, @Izabel
I sure do hope you will pop in from time to time.:friends:
Your have had such rough times and so many setbacks, that I hope you realize how impressive your insistence to keep on keeping on is to me and so many others on the forum.
Full fledge Georgia summer ...temps in 90s and humidity is thick as pea soup.
Makes curbside pickup at the Food Bank incredibly tough, but good news is they are saying this horrid virus doesn't like direct sunlight or humidity...if that's the case, Georgia should be first to recover.:) :-) (:
Big big hugs for a happy day.

Dear Izzy @Izabel

Your home is a true retreat. So many glorious flowers to enjoy. Happy to read that you are pain free in the hip area. I bet balance will come along in time. Especially glad you have gotten out to enjoy your garden. I miss all our friends here. Happy to hear things are improving in Portugal. It has been cooler the last two days. We have “pea soup“ air normally. Love Mojos description. Spot on as usual. Just checking in to see what’s new with you. Sending lots of love sweet friend. Check in from time to time if you feel like it. I will do the same. Know you are in my thoughts. ❤ xxxxx Sarah

Flying by to wish all my dear friends a happy weekend and special thoughts to the American contingency. Hubby being American is going to get take-aways, home-made quarter pounders from a place called Roosters near us, and we will eat it in our Jungle Room ... of course along with some beer and wine!

Saying that, spoke to @Sara61 in the week and we plan to meet at said place in the coming weeks, date to be determined. It is the place that does fabulous fish and chips.

We ate out Thursday and Friday so I want to stay home today. Here is a pic of me on Thursday ...

VB 2 Jul 20.jpg

I am plodding along, cycling three times a week, but still uneasy and strengthening quads, reverted to the walker for a few days - better safe than sorry!

So, off I go to organise Hubby with a few gardening projects, one repotting an Avocado tree into a giant planter which he did from the stone!

Sending you all love, kisses and hugs and lots of sunshine for a beautiful weekend.

Be safe Sweet Peeps.

August.jpeg is here and time for me to check in.

Not much has happened since my last missive. It has been hot and I have stayed indoors in the cool venturing out in the garden later in the day. I have been to the river a few times to have lunch with friends.

No real changes with me this past month ... had a couple of wobbly moments with the steps so I have to take a deep breath and get my act back together. But I am well and happy and that is what is important to me and Hubby ... and I will just keep working on strength and balance. My knee is still stiff but my hip is perfection for which I am grateful.

I hope all my friends are doing well and staying safe. I think of you often.

Sending love and hope that you all keep safe in these difficult times. To me, I find the current issues easy compared to what I went through. Take care.

Hugs from Me Cat.jpeg Izzy xx
