Backyard Lovelies...

SUMMER IS NOT THAT BEAUTY...


But it is still a bit warm that we can enjoy outdoor, though a gloomy day,  so I told MOTH we will sit outside. 

He was a bit upset of our dear Bambi who loves to stay at the backyard, however, it was not nice of her. This time, she is pregnant and hope she will not deliver at the backyard, again. Last year she was here too and delivered a beautiful deer. LoL* it seems she love our backyar and  You know why?....
Mama Bambi was here again... Arrrggghhh! baby bambi is on the way...
These was what happened to my strawberries, flowers and salad §:-(
I picked up the left overs and crystallized for our dessert...

I am not quite sure if Bambis don't like these kind of flowers...

SO I GATHERED ALL THINGS FOR OUR TEA TIME...
 It is a gloomy day today but it is warm, so I decided to set outdoor...
My Toscan set is perfect for a sweet tea time...
 Another time to use the canopy...
Absolutely perfect to keep those bugs away while we have our cozy time
My rendition of a Filipino Mango Float: my style is

Absolutely Marty!


HAPPY SUNDAY AND WEEK AHEAD...

INSPIRE in what had I done on TS...

These two words...

Inspire and TS... yeah they are always dear in my heart. I hang with these gorgeous ladies, since I started 2008. Imagine? 6 years of blogging with Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life and  Susan at Between Naps  On the Porch"?

This was how my urge in setting beautiful tablescapes started for real. They both gave me the opportunity to show my ability and capability (in my own way and my own effort). Remember, blogging is just a hobby. "An expensive hobby", if you ask MOTH, but he loves me doing what I love and die for. He is one of my best fan and supporter §:-)


ANYWAYS, I don't have MUCH TO OFFER
but I have gathered some things after the MIDSUMMER CELEBRATION... 
The centerpiece was a bouquet of flowers from my workmates...
 
Thinking to serve a Filipino soup "Sinigang" in times like this ...
This was ready for the appetizer. Mini bagels...
I was still busy planning if what to serve or not
 Don't you love the simplicity? 
 Who cares, btw if how U set? D´Nics reckoned! "We are still in a food coma after Midsummer", MOMMA? LoL*


As the weather is rainy, windy and soooo cold? then here You Go? Free of choice. Remember choco is fresh from The Philippines.
Well, OK! then I set the drink instead. Tea or Choco?


Well, as I am not that fit for fight, it was good enough for me to set for the family just a bit of a not too fancy table. No one are in the mood of having dinner anyway.

Joining again in my fave memes:
Forever Marty...
As well, as Susan every Thursday.

Thank YOU, Ladies for inspiring Us all...
God Bless You both.






Rehab at D´BoX

A week have passed!

If you read my post last week, you know the reason. The surgery went well but the thing I suffer the whole week is that, I feel my bones/muscles (haunch) were dismantled.  I don't know if the surgeon did an extra forced but to be honest, I am limping now. In fact, docs advice: "You can work the following day". §:-( "Doc! I don't think so)...  Anyways, as I said, I am in the rehab at home and we'll see what happen next. That's another story to relate.

What have I done the whole week then? When I hardly can do the chores and go out for a walk?

LET'S SEE...
 
 This was the ambiance I left  work Friday 13th of June. Blue, Shadows and Sunny
Went I went out from the hospital, this lil creature met me...
D´Nics did a good job entertaining the sickie Momma of the HOUSE...
Lil Missy told me, she toke this pix...
She is so funny. She said "it took forever for you to go down the stairs", LoL*
This is our Powder/CR and Lil Missy saw things that I love. Can YOU guess them?
Inspite of everything, I could not resist baking. In fact, it was the Midsummer last Friday...
Good Morning!!!  We had a great time after all...

Hope Everyone have had a wonderful time.
Summer is here. It's windy, sunny, rainy and cold... what can we ask for more? §:-)

ENJOY TO THE FULLEST! It is a matter of how we take it... GOD Bless Us All.


I am joining once again with the memes I am playing:

Blue Monday

Drop by to the hostessess... and enjoy the party.






Weeks of June...

ARE TOO QUICK to end!

Yeah! Days came too quickly. A week of June, second week of June  and now we are entering the 3rd week.. of summer month.

For us, it started to get busy, summer break, travels, parties and lots of mingling time. That's what summer is and I know it is not just Sweden who are busy. Hope everyone have a great hot summer days.


This is what I am Up to...
 Window shopping and saw it is a pastel summer... and I love it... 
 
 MOTH and Carol, are enjoying in the Sweet Castle tour
She posed for my both meme days,i.e. SSS and Blue Monday...

Then, my colleagues The Settler's came for BRUNCH
 This corner is for the dessert... (check!)
I know they love to have suntan  (check!)
And gazebo is ready to welcome them for a brunch-mingling time...
And this canopy keep the bugs away (check!)
 
This is how I serve when I have a garden parties. Canopy is a must to keep food free from BUGS! Canopy is a good investment, I think...

Here are The Settlers!!! @ D´Box Backyard

My June weekends were happily spended although
I was hospitalized for a surgery... 2014-06-16

Thank You my colleagues for coming and make my day bright.
 I know I am not a good players these past weekends, Ladies...
Sally, I couldn't get up yesterday and no laptops in the operation dept. 
Marty.. I am the living example of INSPIRING, against all odds.
It seems I am so strong and never had health problems, I have too, but I am surviving every
test and fought and beat back! This was a 2nd surgery due to a cervix cancer 4 yrs ago.  I am home for my recovery and the Ops team were happy.They couldn't believe a little lady who is so strong and determined. I am a fighter and a survivor. This is what I can share to you all out there. Inspiring you spiritually.

GOD BLESS US ALL...





What's Up?
