Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #210

Hello my friends, sorry I haven't posted anything this week.  My Mom is still in the skilled nursing facility.  She is slowly making progress.  She had a setback with her foot being swollen.  They did an x-ray, but we have no results as of yet.

This is going to be a very slow journey.  Getting her back to getting up and walking without assistance.  Thank goodness my brother is coming up for two weeks to help when she goes home around August 2nd.

The pool cabana is making progress as well. I shall be posting an update this week.

Stay tuned this coming week for the Alfresco Tablescape Blog Hop Party.
I shall be posting my fun tablescape on Wednesday.
Also on Friday, there is the Garden Link Party.  I am joining 4 other talented hosts for our monthly garden party linkup.

Your host this week is:
Thank you so much for joining us this week! My summer has been filled with gardening, traveling and so many new experiences. Right now, I'm on my way to Delaware for a week.

In between all of the trips, I'm waiting for a black swallowtail butterfly to emerge from it's chrysalis in my greenhouse. This is the first time I've ever experienced something like this so I'm really excited! I'm also waiting for two praying mantis eggs to hatch. All of these beneficial insects are extremely important to my garden.

I've also been enjoying making tea using ingredients harvested straight out of my garden. If you want to learn more about what kinds of plants to grow so you can do the same, read my latest blog post!

Thank you, Bloggers!

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. I know it's hard dealing with your mom being in the rehab facility, Linda. My own mom seems to have so many setbacks herself. Thank you for hosting and I hope this is a good week for you.

  2. I am so sorry about your mom. Hopefully you will see major improvements this week. Thank you for hosting Linda!

  3. I hope your mom is feeling better. Thanks for hosting!

  4. I'm sorry to hear that your mom's recovery is taking a little longer. It isn't easy when your parents need the extra care and time (that they used to give us when we were much younger!). Take care. -Jenn

  5. Thank you for hosting.
    Have a nice week.

  6. When our parents are older things can go wrong so quickly. It’s a slippery slope isn’t it. I hope your brother will be able to help and give you some relief.

  7. Prayers for quick healing for your mom.


I so appreciate your visits and sharing your thoughts at Life and Linda.
