It could have been this

 When I was carrying on about the Italian fixer upper, I could have had this. O.k, maybe not "have" in that sense of the word
but we were right there.

To refresh your minds, this is the Italian Fixer upper.
This or.....

This stunning villa is called La Pausa and it belonged to
Mademoiselle Gabrielle Chanel. It was build for her by The Duke Of Westminster.
Staying in Menton, we were up and down this area on a very regular basis.
Roquebrune Cap Martin is to die for.

I could have been getting ready to start my day in a setting like this.
 But no...... I am thinking about this.

The potential of the fixer upper.

La Pausa was on the market and I didn't know. 
Can you even begin to imagine the stories that house could tell? Ooh la la!
Alas, it has been sold and not to me-hehe.
Check out the link if you have a chance. The pics are swoon worthy.

Be still my heart.

On another note, Army son (aka Jeff) has his surgery tomorrow,
What is left of 3 disc's in his neck will be removed. Titanium brackets and screws
will be inserted and the the vertebrae will be fused.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Life is a little crazy for him
right now and I just wish I could make things better. SO......please keep him in your prayers.
Many thanks!

Happy week. Love and hugs

I will continue to keep your son in my prayers. As far as that "little fixer upper", wouldn't it be a dream come to true to re-model it!

Dearest Barb,

How are you girl? And above all, how is your son doing post-surgery?
Hope things turned out well and that you are okay; got a bit worried.
I was away at the time of this post and just scrolled down on my sidebar to find out about you...
Love and hugs to you,
