~BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE~

Good Morning....Yes I am alive still....Sorry I haven't been around ...but I have Pneumonia and I have been in bed.... I will try and catch up with everyone who have left comments...this I promise.. Now this is what I got up to today...just look at my NOT so sunny Sun room...Yes we got snow and I am so glad I don't have to go out in it...
Here is what my driveway looks like...Who says all we do in California is lay on the Beach should be at my part of California...I know our ski lodge will be happy this weekend....

Baby Kyra is doing GREAT!! only one more surgery to go and then maybe she'll be able to go home..I can't wait to see that day...My Grandson Jacob who just joined the Army is now at Ft. Leonard Wood in Mo, going to boot camp he really misses his wife Morgan and of course his Grandma ha ha!! My family has so much news right now...I just found out last week that my Grandson Jayson is having a baby in Sept and the same day I found out that my Grand daughter Candace is also having a baby in Sept...WOW!!! that means a total of 4 great grand kids for me just this year...I might as well toss them the checkbook at Christmas....Hope all of you stay well and Happy....Love ya all and have missed you !!!
Hugs and smiles Glria

Gloria, I was so glad to see your comment at my place today, and so glad to see this post! I've been worrying about you. I didn't know you had pnemonia, but I've been praying for you just 'cause you haven't been around for awhile. I hope you are feeling better. Take care of yourself! So glad to hear that Kyra is doing well. Been praying for that sweet baby too. You're going to have a hard time keeping up with your grands and great grands! You know, I have 2 birthdays in September (LOL) 9th and 11th. Maybe one will be born on one of my b'days! Love ya, laurie

Oh Gloria, so glad to see you here today. We were all just worried sick for you and here you have the most blessed news! Baby Kyra is doing great and she will be growing up with all of these cousins her age, so fun! I am so so sorry that you are sick. You sound like me, if I get too stressed and tired, down I go. Well dear, many prayers going your way for a speedy recovery, and of course for baby Kyra's continued good progress. Love, Cindy

Chris said...

Girl what do you mean laying there sick and not saying anything to us. Are you getting better yet. With that weather, it's no wonder you are so sick. You just lay around , keep warm and get better. I'm so thrilled that Kyra is doing so well.

Love ya,
Chris

lvroftiques said...

Oh Gloria I'm sorry you have pneumonia! My mom just got over a bout. It's not something to take lightly my friend, so you just take it easy! (I know what a dynamo you are) The snow looks so beautiful at your place! We actually got some too, day before yesterday. Thankfully it's all melted off but the weather sure has been strange. And I'm soo happy that little Kyra is doing well.And girlfriend that's a lot of new family comin'! CONGRATULATIONS!! Great grandma *winks* Vanna

ceekay said...

Ok girlfriend, first of all you better get yourself well again! That is no fun being sick and in...and secondly, with all those new babies in the family, you might as well just accept the fact you are now broke!! Hey, our kids could do without the NIKE shoes, but our grandchildren - forget it...they NEED it..whatever it is!!
And I have a question. Am I like really out of it, but when did you add the scroll of your home. Wow, you have a ton of antiques. They are fantastic.

mbkatc230 said...

Gloria, sorry you've been ill, but glad that you're on the mend. What wonderful news about little Kyra, keeping her in our prayers. What a little tigress! Congrats on all the new babies coming your way - yep, might as well toss the checkbook their way now, but hey it's only money right? Take care of yourself! Hugs, Kathy

Paula Bee said...

Sorry you are under the weather! Congratulations on all the baby news. I think you should take up quilting for all these grandbabies!

Linda said...

So sorry to hear about the pneumonia....you'd better take care of yourself and rest, rest, rest. Beautiful snow pic. So glad Kyra is doing well. Linda

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Great news about Kyra, Gloria!

I hope you are feeling better soon!!

Glenda said...

Sorry to hear you haven't been well. I've had pneumonia three times in the past five years and it totally wiped me out each time. So far this year, I've dodged the bullet.

Make sure you stay hydrated. That is more important than you may realize. Even though I tried to take in copious amounts of fluids I needed IVs at the Urgent Care Center the last time because my blood pressure was so low.

So relieved to hear the good news about Kyra. Prayers still being said.

nikkicrumpet said...

I'm glad to hear Kyra is one step closer to going home. And CONGRATS on the impending new great grand baby...wow 4 in one year is pretty awesome!

prof en retraite said...

Ohhhhh Miss Gloria! You take good care ofyourself! I love all the snow...we have not seen one flake! And what wonderful news about the babies!!! Congrats!!...Debbie

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Aw {{{{{{{{{{Gloria}}}}}}}}}} I do hope your Len is taking good care of you. Pneumonia is NO fun! I've had it twice, so I know. But at least you've got some pretty snow to look at while laying down in your sunroom, right?

I'm so happy to hear that Kyra is doing so well. She's such a trouper!

Justine :o )
