Odds and Ends....ups and downs

It seems as if days are slipping into weeks and weeks into months and I'm reeling.....literally this week.....from one to the other at terrifying speeds!  

I was easing from August into September when vertigo reared it's ugly head.  If you've never had vertigo it starts for me by feeling a bit off center.  Kind of like trying to walk on a boat when the seas are rolling.  Vertigo quickly progresses to dizzy with a capital D.   It puts you down.  Flat down.  Thankfully, I always have the medicine on hand and by the afternoon I was much better.  

So, putting that behind me...here are a few more pictures from Russell's birthday......just because I like them.  

Russell's Uncle Hugh stayed up late....6 p.m....to wish him a happy birthday.   An incredible man at 93...still driving.  

Russell's sister and his mother cooked a great birthday dinner.  Sue was visiting from No*th C*rolina which made it even more special.

I guess I thought I needed to hold him down so he wouldn't float away with excitement.....actually I have no idea why my arm was like this!

His favorite....lemon cheese cake.

Mikey obviously thinks he is king of the bed.  He had had a bath and was trying to reassert himself as my boss!  He's on Russell's pillow.
Mikey can jump onto anything and Jack can't.  It makes Jack have little dog syndrome!


I hope everyone has a happy and safe Labor Day.

Sorry about the vertigo. That must be an ugly feeling. Party looks like it was a lot of fun. Lemon cheesecake sounds awesome. Hope he loved his party.

Awwww! Look at that cute puppy! All ready to snuggle in for the night! Bless you! I have had vertigo, but the last time I had it I was flat on the bed for 3 days! I hope I never get it again!

Have a good Labor Day...don't labor!

I'm so glad you got over that nasty stuff, especially in time for the big party!

We had a big party here, too - finally got it posted. Had a wonderful week-end away, which I'll share soon.

I've never had vertigo (thank you Lord), but I've heard it is really bad. I hope you're feeling much better today.

Happy Birthday Russell.

Hugs,

Hello Nancy
Thank you for your visit last week...sorry I have come round sooner...my daughter lost her baby shorty after our house warming...I haven't felt much like blogging.
Your birth day dinner looks lovely...Happy B-Day to Russell.

I love cheese cake too...but have never had lemon...sounds too yummy!!!
That picture you have hanging over your couch...of the two boys is truly beautiful...is it a portrait of boys you know?Is it an oil painting???
Its just so nice!!!
Blessings Tracy

Oh Yes I wanted to say that vertigo is awful!!!
I had experienced it about 3 years ago when water crystals developed in my ear canal...the room spun for 2 days and it made me sick as a dog!!!I trully could not even stand for falling!!!
I too took meds to control it...
take care and I hope you recover soon.
Tracy
