I know that I said I was only going to write one post a week this summer, but that MRI machine keeps gobbling up my money.

So here I am.

Atlanta is very sultry right now. 

It's typical Georgia summer weather with high temps and humidity.

The crepe myrtles are gorgeous right now and are one of my favorite things about a Georgia summer.

It has been a stressful few days.

Katy fractured her spine in two places on Friday reaching down to get the garden hose.

She has osteoporosis from all of the steroids she has to take and because she is premenopausal they won't give her the type of osteoporosis medications that I take. 

I am hoping they will think of something.

She spent Friday night in the ER and today we are going to see the orthopedic doctor. 

Fingers crossed that she doesn't need surgery.

I have been doing some cleaning and purging and will be listing some of my things on Facebook marketplace.

Etsy has been very slow the last few months and so I am spreading my wings to see if I can create some more sales. 

All of the printables in my Etsy shop are 40% off and I have started adding more gallery prints.

When I went to see the neurologist she was quite impressed with all of the things I have been teaching myself.

I didn't want to tell her that I think I may have fried all of my brain cells. 

Stay safe everyone and if you are a woman age 65 and older or a younger woman at higher than normal risk for a fracture please get your bone density scan.

It's a painless way to protect yourself. 


  1. Saying a prayer for Katy. Keep us posted. OMG that poor girl cannot catch a break. xoxo

  2. I'm so sorry that happened to Katy and I hope she is ok. I walk and exercise to help my bones and muscles. I take a few vitamins too. Hope your day is a good one my friend!

  3. I'm so sorry about Katy. Some people just don't catch a break

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about Katy. Life can be so mean sometimes. She (and you) are in my prayers. My Etsy shop has slowed way down in the last couple of years. Just too much competition on there now I think and too much to choose from. I don't use the ads so my listings are never at the top. You have good items to put on Facebook Marketplace! Go for it and let us know how it goes. Is hot here today, about 100... but at least not humid! Take care.... Marilyn

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about Katy. I hope that she's feeling well very soon and doesn't need any scary intervention. xo

  6. So sorry to hear about Katy. Hope she is doing okay, and won't need surgery.
