Flutterflys and Long Week-end

I just had to post something to night to say I hope everyone had a great Holiday Week-end. I really enjoyed it, nice and relaxing. Yes, I did go to the doc on Wed. and I did have quite a UTI. I got on a round of some Antibiotics and feel 100% better.
Saturday morning I did some household chores and then went outside to play in my flowers. Its been so horribly hot here that they have been quite neglected. It was in the upper 80s but a very nice breeze blowing and I so enjoyed being out there and not dying from the heat.
The butterflys are every where right now. I think they were really glad to get some nectar that wasn't at the boiling point, lol.
So I had to chase a few down and take some pics of them. I just love to see them in the pictures while they are sipping away on the sweet nectar. I think one day I will make a butterfly scapbook, just as soon as I finish my garden scrapbook and my NYC scrapbook, hopefully I will still be able to see at that ripe old age,,lol.
So yesterday I went and picked up Mom and we went to Michaels with our 50% off coupons, of course. I only bought a little mini paper cutter and a few other items. Mom was actually good too and didn't spend alot.
Afterwards we came back to my house and stayed up most of the night working on our friend Jane's birthday prez. And this morning we made some really neat background papers.
Mom and I were in a shadowbox swap in one of our groups. Well Mom got my name and so I got the box she made. It is so beautiful. Guess what it is? A butterfly shadowbox. She worked so hard on it and I will treasure it forever and ever. Our friend Jane was the hostess of the swap and was kind enough to give Mom my name as she knows anything Mom makes will always mean the world to me. So,,,tomorrow I will take a picture of it when I get home from work and post it on my blog. I am a quite tired tonight so I am going to go to bed and read a while and get ready for the short work week.
Again, I hope you all had fun,,much hugs to all!!! Good-night!

I'm glad to hear you went to the doctor and are feeling better.

All the butterflies are so beautiful. I love seeing them in the yard. We have one that flies around every afternoon. It's still been hot here but I think we're going to cool down a bit later in the week.

I'm looking forward to seeing the box your mom made. I'm sure it's beautiful.

Love your butterflies...
I haven't had as many this year, so it was a treat to see yours.
