Where the wild things grow

As I mentioned the other day, I am home getting better in body and spirit and soul as much as possible after my grandmothers death and my surgery...
Today I decided to get out of the house with the camera and see what was going on..
The sky is definitely blue.  Just a couple more days of summer heat then a cold front comes in along with some drought relief.  Which we need ...
*see brown grass below*

Before I go any further, can I just say that cats are weird? 

Anyway..My mission today was to look for things that were growing wild.  This is actually a weed of some sort and I'm glad I didn't cut it down because I kinda like it...whatever it is...

This is the common morning glory that I did not plant this year...maybe not even last year but I did one time and now every year we are *blessed* with their it or not.  This things are vigilant!  

This is a weed.  One that produces grape colored clusters.  If you get this on your clothes or hands it will stain.  I let it grow because..I sort of like it...Its kinda cool... 
This I found coming up in a place that the weed eater didn't get to..  And lucky for us it didn't because just look at this little wild flower!  Pretty!!

I guess I didn't tell you what kind of surgery I had..Maybe you didn't want to know, but here on Peebly we just tell it like it is.  I  had a TAH.  Which is a total abdominal hysterectomy.  Back when the doctor thought I had kidney stones, well..I didn't..but I did have fibroid tumors (no biggie, usually always benign)  that needed to come out.  So they did along with all the other parts that go along with it.  Anyway, maybe TMI..but there it is...I can tell you that it is a long...healing process.  I had  no idea.  But healing I am...

Anyway...Now you know everything!!!  

Whats new with you?

What kind of things would you be doing if you were off work but physically unable to do too much?

Tell me.

Life on Peebly

 You probably wondered if I was ever coming back....Well..yes of course.

 I miss my grandmother terribly and I am trying to learn to live without her ... 
Its just not something I have ever had to do.  She has been a constant in my life from day one...Every single day I miss not talking to her.  But I know she would want me to not have a pity party for myself and go on..

So I am..I also had a surgery last week.  So I am home recuperating from that and getting my body healed along with my spirits.  I have always known I was fortunate with friends and a loving family but I dont think it was ever as apparent as these last weeks.  My family has supported me and listened to me cry and I dont know where I would be without them.  My friends have been fabulous!  My neighbors made me dinners and soups and made sure we were doing ok...My sister in law picked us up at the airport when we flew up for the funeral.  She gave us a room and fed us and loaned us a car and well...she was there for us.  Mickeys Mom as always, there.  My forever shoulder to cry on.  Im just overwhelmed with gratitude.. 
So the road goes on.  Life on Peebly goes on.  As will I.  With the helping hands of many..


PS...The header picture was taken at my sister in laws house.  That is an eagle flying overhead..How cool is that?
