Magazines and Pinterest

I got a stack of magazines the other day from my mom and it surprised me that I didn't jump in and read them.  Had this happened a few years back I would of been tearing pages out, folding corners and reading captions etc.  It dawned on me that since Pinterest I barely crack open a magazine.   Not only did Pinterest change things but, many beloved magazines went away.   So now I'm taking photos with my iPhone and pinning ideas from the stack my mom brought me.  Here are some things that caught my eye.

My family

Both my husband Ed and my sweet niece Riley had tests at different hospitals at the same time yesterday.   Ed has esphogial varicises due to his liver issues which had to be banded.  Imagine hemroids in your throat.  Ugh!  Little Riley had a heart Cath.  Ed was exhausted, he could barely keep his eyes open so I got dinner for Katie (my niece) and myself and went to see her and little Riley.  Because babies are cuter than 59 year olds I'm sharing this photo I snapped.  Riley will have a big surgery in a couple of months on her heart.   They all have a big chunk of my HEART ❤️.

Something I haven't mentioned here in the blog.....

My husband Ed has been chronically ill for many, many years.  Since the fall of 2015 he has been in evaluation for a liver transplant.  As of today he is still not on the list but he is having a hearth catherization.  Just more step until he can get on the list. So, I'm here at Methodist hospital in the waiting area just waiting (of course).   It's been a long journey as he was diagnosed with liver disease 9 years ago.  There is a liver walk coming up on August 13th here in town and we have a team.  If you want to walk with us please let me know.  We came up with the name of Liver and Onions.  I did a fun little graphic for the shirts.  If you are a prayer warrior please add Ed to your list.  Xo

It's been alittle over a year that Ed and I have been living with 2 beautiful ginger cats.  We were gifted them by my niece and we have been so happy to have them in our lives.  Just wanted to share them with you.  Xo
