Those four months weren't all gloom, doom, and pain.
I do have a few bright spots to share!
Spent a few days in Mexico in late January.
A trip to Fredericksburg in February. We came back through San Antonio for a brief visit with family.
By March 1st, the wild flowers were beginning to bloom in our Edinburg garden.
We made another trip to Mexico to prune the grapes. I do love the vineyard when it's all orderly.
Back in Texas it was bluebonnet time.
And Stanley started a new garden in the common area of our park.
On April 4th, Jim and Veti threw an early birthday/ recovery encouragement party for me. Painting supplies! I must admit that my efforts with those supplies are NOT ready for public viewing.
And then it was Tuesday, April 7 . . . surgery day!
I came home on Thursday and
On Friday, the rains came. And they kept coming. We have been dealing with excess water now for six weeks . . . My entire recovery time!
Pictures of flooded areas get a bit boring after a while. Time to get a little artsy.
May has been much brighter!
May 4 . . . Beanie and I celebrated birthdays! She had a little help from Elsa.
May 8 . . . Beanie's adoption was final, at last!
Finally, we can use pictures that show her sweet face!
May 9 . . . Panchi's birthday
May 10 . . . Grayson's birthday
May 16 . . . Emery, my oldest granddaughter received her Master's Degree in History.
May 21 . . . My older daughter, Panchi, was in Las Vegas celebrating 25 years married to Russell who she calls "the best man ever."
May 22 . . . Release from Dr. Marina to go to Mexico

And, also on that day . . .drum roll
A new great granddaughter for Stanley!
We leave for Mexico on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to an interesting trip with great memories.
