Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #209

Hello friends, it's that time again to share your lovely posts.  I hope I find some time to visit and check out your awesome posts.

As you know my mom was discharged from the hospital after spine surgery.  She is in a rehab skilled nursing facility to get stronger.
I chose one close to our home with great reviews, so I can visit her and check on her care.

Updates on Mom & Pool Cabana 

I so appreciate your well wishes for a speedy recovery. I had lunch with my mom yesterday and I also brought her dog, Jacob to visit.

I shared some progress on our pool cabana.  The roofers are coming on July 24th and the stone mason will be starting in another week.

I cannot wait for this project to be finished.
Stay tuned for another tablescape blog hop with the theme, Alfresco.
I am thinking TROPICAL.

  1. Thanks for updating us on your mom, Linda. I'm glad that she's in a rehab facility close to your home. You're such a good daughter.
    Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a great week.

  2. Oh, Linda. I am so late to getting around to blogs. I am sorry that your mom had complications after the surgery but I am glad she in a rehab unit close to your home. You have been a good daughter to both your parents over the years. That is a great picture of her.

    Hope you have a really great night- Love to you- xo Diana

  3. Oh your mom looks like she is in great spirits and yes, the rehab so close to home is just great !
    If you're a only daughter like me, our duty is to look out for our parents, I have an 88 year old mom and sometimes I have a very busy life with her. Hope she is well soon.
    Thank you for hosting the party for us at this time.
    Have a lovely week.

  4. Thanks so much for hosting each week!!

  5. I bet you are thinking tropical, Linda! A little escapism is what I just did with my latest table I'm sharing. How sweet to take your mom's dog for a visit - best therapy yet, I bet! THank you for continuing to hose through all that your busy life is taking you right now. Hoping for better days coming!

  6. That's great that you were able to take your mom's dog in to see her, I bet she loved that!! Thanks for hosting through all that you have going on.

  7. It’s good to see a picture of your mom- she looks pretty good for all she’s been through. That must have given her great joy to see Jacob!

  8. Thanks for hosting a great party -- I appreciate them each week

  9. Hello Linda, oh I wish your mom a full recovery from her surgery. I pray for you and her as I know you are so busy taking care of her. Her dog Jacob is so adorable and the stuffed toy looks just like him.
    You cabana is going to be so beautiful when it's finished!! You home and pool area sound like paradise. :)
    Take care and hugs. Julie xo
