Okay, tomorrow is my big day. I have surgery in the afternoon. As for today, I started fasting after breakfast!! Yes, that’s correct, it’s 30-hour fasting for me! I’ve had several people tell me that can’t be right, but I triple-checked. So, if I make any silly mistakes while typing this I have an excuse! 😉
While I was preparing for this surgery over the course of the last few weeks I decided it was time to re-pot those poor old inside plants that were in desperate need of a bigger pot! After all, I’m likely to forget to water them over the next few weeks after the surgery, and they would die from lack of water in those tiny pots.
Well, my husband,  my mother, and many of my friends say I can’t do anything simple…I think they are trying to compliment me! (I think!)
So, being me, I had to spice it up a bit! 
I took a wire hanger and cut off the hook.
I bent it into a heart shape on the top.  
Then, I twisted the bottom together and cut off the ends.
I pushed the bottom into the dirt close to the stem of my newly re-potted RoseMary. Then I took two-branched and wrapped them around the metal heart shape: one around one side and the other around the other side. 
I added a little statue of Mary, which I had bought a while back at the dollar store.   
And that’s it!

Now I’ll have something pretty to look at while I recover! ☺
May Mother Mary help me these next few days!

Please, pray for me and my family in this time of struggle.
God Bless.


  1. Jennifer, your little Mary garden is beautiful!! you're so cretive. prayers for a successful surgery and swift recovery!

  2. Oh, thank you, Gardenia! For the prayers and the compliment! I have to tell you! My oldest daughter (age 13) was fussing at me because I said in my post a few weeks ago, that I was “packing away my glue gun” till after the surgery -yet I posted another craft. LOL! 😉 I love kids! I jokingly told her I didn't use a glue gun! 😀 Okay, I admit it! I'm addicted to crafts and creative stuff!!!!! A “no-craft recovery” may be hard to take!!! LOL! God Bless!
