About a month ago we were asked if we would like to be one of four residences that would be featured in Shell Point's monthly magazine!!! I said, "Are you kidding? Yes, Yes!"
We are in the May issue and I am so excited to share our piece. Boy they made us sound and look 100% better than we are.
It also was a wonderful diversion to what was going on in our lives during this time, which I will detail at the end of this post.
Go to this Link....It's the Shell Point Life Magazine
We are on page 8
It's really a fabulous article and I thank all those who worked so hard to put it together
May 2017 Shell Point Life Magazine
Now to the other news in our lives!
Eleven years ago MC
had a stent put in to correct an aneurysm in his aorta. Every year he has tests to make sure it's OK....
Well on February 6th we found out this time it showed the stent had a "leak". After many, many tests and procedures and more doctors than I care to think of, we drove the 3 hours up to Tampa General Hospital to have a Vascular Specialist and his team do what was needed to make the repairs. They added a cuff to the original stent and added another stent to his kidney. We had hoped it would be a 2 or 3 day, at the most, stay in the hospital. But as things go he had a few complications that required that he remain in the Vascular ICU for 6 days. We arrived home Wednesday night. We go back in two weeks for a follow up and I hope we won't get any more bad news and that he's OK,
Hopefully things will be normal in our lives soon and MC will get back to his normal self and I will be able to shed the stress that has consumed my existence since February 6th.

Slightly South of Simple
A Dear friend and fellow blogger, Kristy Woodson Harvey, has written her third novel and sent me an advance proof. Thank you, thank you so much Kristy....
Kristy and her Mom, Beth , are the co-authors of the Blog My Design Chic, which I admit is one of the first blogs I ever followed and continue to read every post.
I know a lot of my readers are book club members and Kristy's book is the most ideal novel for a book club. I promise you will love it! I also recommend her first novel, Dear Carolina and her second , Lies and other Acts of Love . They also should be on every book club must read list!
Kristy has the ability to make her characters come to Life!!!!
You get to know them and feel like you are there with them.
Slightly South of Simple is a novel of a mother and her three daughters. It is actually the first of a series of three! Each will feature one of the three daughters.
Now I can't wait for the second of the series to come to life! I need, no I must, Know, what happens next. How these characters continue with their lives and how they solve their different, yet intertwined lives.
Slightly South of Simple can be pre-ordered and will be available April 25, 2017
Thank you again Kristy, this one is the Best!!!
