Easy let me explain.
Today I was cleaning & re-arranging things "as you do" and thought I would put some of my utensils next to the stove. Wooden in one, Stainless Steel in the other.
So I grabbed these two pottery vases that I got from Spain. I've had them for years & have always filled them full of blooms. They do the job perfectly & are just the right size for my needs.

Lisha says the meaning is - Some kind of immunisation
Mari says the meaning is an unbeatable virus that has chased you off to bed!!
Thanks for visiting my blog today Mari I hope you enjoyed playing Wednesday's Word and come again to play next week!! Had a quick sneak over to your blog shall return again soon.
And lets not forget the little cabbage that seems to think it is a new Pharmaceutical name for Viagra. Now that really cracked me up. I hope no prescriptions are written out for this one you wouldn't know if you were going to receive a immunisation or a Viagra pill. Could be a worry. Failing that you would come down with a terrible virus.
Thanks once again for playing see you same time same place next week for Wednesday's Word.

On the weekend we visited Granny. (My Granny, My Children's Great Granny)
Casey got in trouble for not wearing his Army uniform for her, we tried to explain that it's like any other uniform, you only wear it while working.(She didn't buy it, we're still in trouble)
I remember Granny swimming laps of her pool, mowing the lawn like a whirlwind or working on the property that they owned, up the top of fruit trees picking fruit from some precarious placed ladder.
Granny brought me up I have the softest spot for my Gran.
When she heard we were coming to visit she wanted us to take her to McDonalds she said she hadn't been there for a few years!!LOL
Gran still lives in her own home but does not cook or clean for herself anymore, she tells me she is not getting put away where the old people go!!
More often now she tells me things that I know are incorrect she just told me that she bought a particular house for 250 pounds. I know that she bought this house in 1981, we had been using $$ for nearly 20yrs by then.
This never seems to upset me when I hear other "oldies" slip up however I am really upset when I hear Gran do it although I try not to be. I have to try very hard not to correct her as then she either gets upset or thinks I am telling stories!!
Sometimes though she still remembers occasions I have since forgotten.
Isn't the mind a mysterious thing.

Not quite the 23rd Psalm that I am accustomed to and bearing in mind I don't usually go for adaptions, but this certainly gave me "fuel for thought" as a busy Mother/Homemaker.

This Goats Milk soap is simply davine
it was wrapped in clear wrap but I couldn't resist opening it.
The smell is of real Lavender not that awful fake smelling stuff.

Although I am dying to!!!!
