She is coming out of her "fog" as well. She knows who everyone is now and seems to be regaining more and more of her memory.
The Dr. has told us that the kidney infection is still not clear and he will probably keep her until the weekend at least.
Thanks so much for your continuing prayers for my mother in law. We all know that God is the great physician and we pray it's his will to send her back home to us better than ever!

The guitar on the left is a 1976 les paul custom "black beauty" the guitar to its right is a 1973 lespaul custom the guitar to its right is a 1993 les paul studio and the strat is my practice guitar.We collect guitars and make our own guitars and at the moment have 15 total.
The black Barbie is Julia. She was from a TV show in the late sixties or early seventies and was a nurse. I think Diahann Carroll played as Julia. Her hair has turned bright red over the years, not sure what is going on with that! The middle doll is Ken of course, Barbie boyfriend for the last 50 years! Talk about your long engagements! The doll on the left is Midge, Barbies best friend. She was one of my favorites because her hair flipped up and she had freckles like me.
This is Skipper on the left, Barbies little sister and on the right is her friend Scooter. Scooter has a special story. Two days before my 5th birthday my little sister was born. So the party at home was moved to my great aunts house because mom was in the hospital. The day of my party a huge snowstorm hit and the only little girl to make it to my party lived next door to my aunt. I was so disappointed. I had asked for "Scooter" for my birthday. During the party my Dad comes in with my gift. I unwrapped it so excited and it turned out to be another "Skipper" At that point I had a melt down. I threw a horrible tantrum (so my aunt and Dad say) and started crying. My Dad took the Skipper doll, went back out into the snow storm and drove back to town, (over a half hour in good weather) and picked up the right doll "Scooter" and brought her back to me at my aunts. What a Brat I was!!!

The onions are really doing well. I grow mine on top of the ground. Many years ago a neighbor told me to get really big onions to pull all the dirt away from the bulb leaving only the root in the ground, and it works!! I am so thrilled that the peppers are doing well, last year they didn't do so well, when I plant my peppers I strike a match, blow it out and put in the ground with the pepper plant. Maybe an old wives tale, but it works for me.
Of course whats a garden without tomatoes and squash? My family loves squash. This was something I wouldn't eat growing up. I think because my family cooked it to mush. My mother in law gently stewed hers with lots of butter and chopped onions and I loved it! We also love fried sqash. Dip your squash slices in egg then into cornmeal and fry on each side. YUM! I can't hardly wait for the first tomato sandwich or tomato biscuit of the year! Sometimes I eat so many tomatoes in the summer that I start getting blisters inside my mouth. I know better than to eat 10 per day, but they are so good! I also have cucumbers, red peppers, jalapeno peppers, chocolate peppers, ( yep, I said chocolate), butternut squash, cantelope, watermelon, gourds, giant pumpkin and white pumpkin and a few rows of green beans! Come on over, I'll share!
Wishing everyone a blessed day!
