UPDATE ON HOLLY :) i have a very special message for everyone. :) my friend Holly says, "Thank you" :) She appreciates everyone's wonderful thoughts, prayers, and well wishes. :) i've been sharing them with her. :) i've been in contact with Holly, and also in contact with her mom, brother, and friends on my email. keeping updated on Holly's condition. i called Holly yesterday evening. :) Holly is doing ok, she had an MRI yesterday. She wants everyone to know, that she's awaiting the results of her tests, and that she is keeping in good spirits. :) Holly wanted to watch tv with me last night. :) Friday night is our ghost adventure night, and even though she couldn't get that channel in her hospital room, she said, "lets watch espn football" :) awww! :) We watched the espn2 NFL Live show for a little while, her spirit is very good, she is in good spirits, and really doing so well, keeping strong. :) She saw her Ravens football team on the espn show, and she got so excited. :) i said, "before we know it, we'll be watching those football games in the autumn season" :) awww! :)
i'm so proud of Holly. :) it's been a very emotional time, since her fall on wednesday afternoon. my heart, and spirit has been with her, and she feels all of our comforting love, and positive healing energy. :) The doctors believe, it may be a Sciatic nerve, that is causing Holly to pass out, and causing her to be off-balance, and falling down. Her mom, brother, and 2 of Holly's friends have been in contact with me through email, keeping eachother updated. :) one of Holly's friends didn't know if she was ok, and i sent her an email letting her know Holly is ok, and is in the hospital. Holly's dad visited her today, and i called Holly earlier today, she mentioned that they are keeping her for another day, or maybe even couple more, to few days. the nurses and doctor's have given Holly a walker to use, and will most likely definitely have the walker when she returns home. her mom mentioned, that the sciatic nerve in Holly's left leg, is most likely causing her the health issues. Holly mentioned to me also, that there may be burstitis in her left hip, we're all keeping strong, and in good spirits together, keeping Holly surrounded by love, care, and support. :) She's gonna make it through this. :) my mom's been saying hi to Holly on the phone, and it's helped Holly so much, to know that we all are praying for her, and wishing her a full recovery. :) Holly is so strong, and amazing person, and will definitely continue to make it through this. earlier when i called Holly, i was walking around our yard and Holly got to hear the birds singing. :) She was so happy to hear the birds :) i'm going to call Holly later on this evening, and will keep everyone updated on how she's doing. :) Thank you all again, so much, for your wonderful well wihes, thoughts, and prayers. :) it's very much appreciated, with all of our hearts. :)

So glad you had such a nice day Chris!! I have as well and have a lilly blossom of my OWN from the plants/bulbs Marianne gave me!!! That was quick!! I was not expecting blooms this year as they were dug up at Marianne\'s and planted on the farm, but I\'m so excited that I do have a blossom!!!

I also had a run to town and a hazelnut iced capp from Tim\'s!! YUMMY!! Good trip but really really hot!!! I was getting worried so scurried home before the MonSter took over my body!!!

Glad you had such A GOOD DAY!! Talked to Mary a bit about Kris, and all seems to be working out for him. He\'ll get through the pain little by little...

Love to you and everyone in CT!! Have a great evening!! xoxoxo Cj

I\'ve been keeping Holly in my prayers and thoughts, and I hope she continues to improve and get well!

Oh my! Gardening season 2012 is in full bloom!! Welcome sunflowers :D
I always love your garden photos :) My patio garden is doing very well, I\'ll upload some pictures soon, I\'m just waiting for a few more shoots - it\'s the middle of winter here, so some seeds I planted aren\'t going to sprout just yet. I\'ve planted some ranunculus (burgundy and white varieties), impatiens (multicolour) and Alyssum. If they all sprout, it\'s going to be a lovely profusion of colour and flowery goodness :) My chive plants have started to shoot, but I\'m not sure they\'ll survive, we\'ve had some unusually cold mornings here - down to about 5 degrees celcius - which is cold for us! That\'s about as cold as it gets here. Not good for the plants. I have them in a sunny position though. The geraniums are doing wonderfully - I have both red and pink varieties and they\'re just going nuts! My white geranium is an heirloom variety so it\'s a bit fussy and not flowering very much. I didn\'t get to go on my holiday, but I have got time to tend my plants now I guess. :S
Sending you all love and hugs xx Here\'s hoping for a trip to the US next year.... hope....

Hi Chris, how lovely you were talking to your next door neighbour and it was interesting how you use lemon juice to help your plants with the insects, I must try that sometime as well. Thanks for keeping us up todate with how Holly is doing, you are a good friend. Please tell Holly I am thinking about her. It was nice you could speak to her on the phone. It must have being nice going to Mcdonalds with your mom and dad and getting some hazelnut iced coffee, and a sweet treat. I love your baking friday and all the nice yummy stuff you made. My mom and i are coming over for some raspberry pie and strawberry jello. hehe Hugs xx
