Beautiful swap and wrong meds????

Happy Sunday everyone.
Hop you are having a blessed day.

Our ETSY Team did a spring sway and I wanted to share what I got from my partner Donna.

It is hand painted onto wood. I have it hanging in my craft area. I so love the saltbox houses and those cute little sheep.  

Donna has a wonderful ETSY shop Countryside Cottage Prims and Folkart 

You should go see her things!

As for me.....I have been battling a sinus infection. Finally went last Tuesday to the doctor for antibiotics. She gave me amoxicillion like I asked for and told her I CANT take Augmentin. 
Well from the moment I took the first pill my nausea, stomach cramps, severe diarrhea, and finally vomiting by Friday morning. I knew something was wrong.

Got in to see another doctor. The amoxicillion she gave me also had Augmentin in it!! That doctor was mad and so was I.

Today I am finally feeling a little bit normal. 
BEWARE!!! From now on I am looking up every medication and the mgs before I take it. The bottle said 875mg amoxicillion. SO I assumed it was ok.

The new doctor said that is the one that has augmentin in it. UGH!! 

Its been some painful days, but my Lord has helped me along the way. He is so great that way.
Monday I am calling to let the other doctor know what she did and to put in my chart no augmentin.

Wrong meds can be a deadly and scarey thing.

It's almost April

Most of you in the country are waiting for spring.

Here we have had spring weather for  a while.
Which could mean a HOT summer.

So...Remember all the ducks that we have had in our pool this year??

Well one momma decided to stay and make a nest.

I know its hard to tell in this pic but she is under the bush by our diving board.
Hubby takes her food outside but she doesnt eat it LOL
She leaves the nest for a few hours to go eat I guess. Then comes back home.

She isn't scared of us. We think there is 3 eggs atleast.
Hubby is so excited!!!!


My niece Zoe turned 7 on Friday. Can you believe that??

She had such a great time. It was at a pizza place.

This is the pillow I made her. It is a pattern from Southern Bell Scentz. It says Jesus loves me. Zoe really liked it.


My healthy Journey
How has everyone been doing out there with theirs?
I have adapted a few new things.
I am drinking MORE water then I am soda pop. 
That is a miracle let me tell you.
Water tends to make me nauseated so I have learned to sip water. Also I am drinking at room temp and that seems to help.

Also since I CAN NOT eat any raw fruits or veggies I have been trying  a few things.
i so miss bananas!!! So I tried making banana chips.

It said to bake them at 200 degrees for hours.
I put cinnamon on a few.
Well, they were not hard like chips they were mushy. 

So I didn't have chips, but what I did do was put them in my vitamix with some peanut butter, milk, and ice and made a smoothie. 

Oh it was soo yummy!!! No sugar added!!

 I have also bought me and exercise DVD that I have wanted for a long time. Will share with you next time how that is going.

Howdy March

March has arrived and with it brings lots of blooms here in my neck of the desert.
As a person with allergies that makes me go HACHOO!!!


So I try and get outside when I can and not for long periods of time.

Wanted to show you a pillow I made for a charity auction.

It is darker in person and so pretty.
I think I may end up listing in my ETSY shop for orders and making one for myself.

I took off last Wednesday from work and spent the morning with my hubby.
We went to Butterfly Wonderland.

I am always nervous about things flying around my head LOL.

 Can you see the pretty green one? It was the only like this and so beautiful

 There were alot of different black ones and I to say they were my favorite. They looked like velvet.

They had a few of these around. Yummy's for the butterflies.

Here is hubby with his favorite. It had the prettiest blue when it opened up. This little guy rode on his should for quite some time. And as you can see with the smile on his face, he didn't mind one bit.

I have to say it was a fun day for us. It was humid inside where the butterflies are. After about 30 min I was telling hubby I am an Arizona girl, I am use to dry heat!
