springy sunday morning

 Good morning all!  I hope every ones having a nice weekend.  the weather here has been pretty nice.. not hot and not cold.  Today should be really nice.  Spring is finally in full swing!  Thankfully! I woke up again to the sound of singing birdies and that always makes me happy!  Perfect way to start the day.  And I cant believe that next weekend is Memorial Day weekend already.   I guess I should make some party plans.  lol!  IMO on call again this week and it started out with a bang.  I think I already have 10 hours in since Friday night and yesterday.  With more to do this morning.  then hopefully it will be quiet the rest of the week   Sometimes I wish I could tell you work stories.  But I cant.  You'd be astonished though!  some peeps are cray cray!  lol!

So whats everyone doing today?    I have more on call home visits to do this morning and then I'm off to my dear friends daughters baby shower.   I'm dying to do some flower shopping... but I guess that will have to wait a few more days.  I really need to get my flower pots and window boxes cleaned up and ready first.   Maybe after the shower today I'll have some time to work outside.   I went out yesterday to pick some lilacs and it was mosquito city out there!  I think I'll go buy some bug spray before I venture into the back yard again!  

I have a lot of bear orders and my plan is to make one every morning til they are done...  lol..  or at least to stick as close to that plan as possible!   that's what I should be doing right now.  or getting laundry sorted.. or vacuuming..   but here I sit!

Hey!  down 10 pounds now!  woohoo!   I haven't had my blood pressure taken again since last Monday...  but it was 124/84 then.  I hope its even better now.. but I don't know.  I had some stressful moments this week... that pretty much probably caused it to sky rocket!  lol!    And even on call yesterday.. people were freaking out and blowing up and that was a little stressful too!   but 10 pounds down is a really good start!

So I'm thinking about a patriotic swap..  anyone interested? not sure what exactly it would be yet.  Gotta think on it some more.  But is there interest in it?

Happy Sunday bloggy pies!

Oh - I hear you about the stories you can't tell. Working in a hospital there were stories I would have loved to share---but couldn't...cray-cray- is right!

Good luck getting your bears done. I know you love it but I also know it is work to get them done.

Happy Spring Sunday to you, Viv! xo Diana

Viv, I used to always tell my girls stories of my co-workers.LOL. But then I worked with mostly men. My job wasn't health care.. Wishing you some fun today. Take pics of the bears. :):) Bless you, xoxo,Susie
p.s. we should always hear birds singing when we awaken.

My hardest appointments were having to distract a client while the secretary called the police(usually a rape case). Don't miss that much. Anyway, I am working on the camper today; getting it ready for its maiden voyage. We bought an old cab over camper; it won't go far but that's okay. Have a lovely spring day and GOOD JOB on the weight loss and blood pressure!

Happy Sunday Viv! Hope you got to enjoy some of your Sunday after all! Try to leave all the sadness at the office. Never let it invade your joyful home. You do your best and then you move on. Love you!

10 pounds! That's fantastic news. I know how stressful your job is being married to a social worker. Best wishes keeping up with those bear orders. We haven't started our flower boxes yet. The flower boxes need to be rebuilt and it's not on the top 10 list at the moment. I hope your work week ahead is a lighter one. Hugs!

Hi Viv! Thanks for coming over to say hi! Congratulations on your weight loss, that's awesome! I had a stressful week last week and I couldn't wait for the week to be OVER! Today instead of working I'm blogging. I just don't want to be here today......I hope you can get to that gardening this week! I would definitely be interested in a patriotic swap! I watch that show TURN, Washington's Spies, so I've been feeling a little patriotic lately!

My post didn't post. So here goes again. Congrats on the weight loss.
Social work is a tough one. My daughters struggles with the issues as well. I feel like one with my son. The stories I could tell.
Thanks for the mail.
Have a good week my friend.

Congrats on the weight loss and lower bp. I can imagine you have some stories. Hope that you can get some rest. And Memorial Day? Already? How did this happen?

Good for you on being 10 pounds down, Vivian! I am just about fed up with my weight and am getting serious about getting down about 10 pounds.

Can't believe it is Memorial Day weekend next weekend already! It was just March yesterday. : ) I just bought some plants today at the supermarket - a couple of hanging baskets and some plants to pot in on one of my urns. With the humidity we had this week I think my pansies are just about done so I will have to get something else for those pots.

Oh, almost forgot - I'd be up for a patriotic swap!
