{This Moment} See Beautiful

Grandma update:  Thursday was a fair day for her.  She had her first PT yep 12 hours after surgery hip replacement.  That is just how they do it.  It was painful and left her a bit 
aggravated (and rightly so) for the remainder of the day. 
Mom and I thank each and everyone for your kind comments and emails.  We hope to get back to commenting soon.
Mom prepares my blog posts about a week ahead so we are just adding updates.

Tomorrow is a new day with new hope....and a good way to celebrate

Our hostess is 
Sugar, The Golden Retriever

Today we are featuring some pictures taken in the 
Beautiful North Carolina Mountains
We hope you enjoy 
This Moment and See Beautiful

The Mountains always have what appears to be smoke over them even on a clear day
thus the Smokey Mountains

Mom and Dad were visiting their very good friends the first two days of their trip
This is their most beautiful/handsome Pembroke Corgi
Yogi.  Mom says when he looks at you it is like he can see into your soul. Yogi just turned 10.
Oh Mom nearly fell in the pond trying to get this most
Beautiful picture of blooming lily pads on the front lawn of the
Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC

Mom and Dad took a hike in Dupont State Park
which is in Brevard, NC the home of a ton of waterfalls
This most beautiful water fall is named High Falls
I am happy to say Mom realized she didn't leave her heart in the mountains.  When she got home, she found out her 
heart was really at home with me.  This box was in the
foyer 2 seconds when I hopped on it...Mom said
This was a beautiful moment
(I think she missed me)

MOL she told me she brought both boxes back especially for me but after a quick sniff I knew she was fibbing me.
The big box contains a most Beautiful Hot Air Balloon
that will be hung over our stair case (but not by my Dad
he isn't allowed on ladders).  Once it is hung I'll show it to you

This Beautiful Biltmore box contained
three bottles of Biltmore wine.

Yours are the best of course, you look very interested in that wine. I was just visiting my sweet Remington and I noticed that Mr. Ripley has his eyes on you. What a sweet couple you two would be. We could double date.

  15. Wow, that lily pad picture is beeYOUtiful! I bet the froggies really enjoy it. And how nice of your momma to bring you boxes home as souvenirs!

  16. Glad to hear that your Mom is doing all right. It is OK to be grumpy with all that being done to you. Please tell her we are all thinking about her and that is a lot of thinking.
    Love the pictures of your trip. That waterfall is really something. And the mountains are terrific too. What a lot of good scenery. We have a big picture of the Mom falling in the pond taking a picture of the flowers. Now that would have been a great picture. Take care and lots of purrs to the Mom.

  17. lol....hope nobody is drinking wine and then hanging the hot air ballon.

    Glad Grandma is doing good. I don't blame her for being a bit if she was grumpy.

  18. Oh Madi, what a beautiful bunch of pictures today. WE love See Beautiful Fridays. Glad your Grandma is doing ok.....My Vickies mom just had a knee replacement and she said it is pretty painful when they make you get up and walk so soon after surgery. wE will be sending healing thougths to your grandma.

  19. Sending healing prayers for Grandma, Madi!
    Poor thing, it must have been torture right after surgery for her!
    Beautiful waterfalls and Yogi is a cutie, too!
    Give Mom extra love, she really needs it right now!
    Hugs, Kathy

  20. Sure hope your grandma heals real quick. Please keep us posted.


  21. What a lovely trip--I've seen picturea of the Biltmore Estate. We can't wait to see the balloon. We wonder if you'll stare at it a lot? Kitties are very observant!

  22. I am soooo happy to hear that Grandma is on the mend, if even a little grouchy....I would be too!!
    I love your pics Madi's Mom!! Beautiful!!



  23. Madi, your Mom always gets such pretty pics. We would love to see those Smoky Mountains in "fur"son.

    We hope Grandma has a better weekend.

  24. What beautiful pictures, Madi's Mom! We like the waterfall one the best. We are purring that Grandma heals quickly.

  25. I'm just catching up. So sorry to hear about your grandma.. but it looks like she is bouncing back well. I will keep her in my prayers!
    These pictures are gorgeous! What an awesome trip that must have been. The hot air balloon has me curious. I can't wait to see it!!
    Take good care of your mama now, ya hear :-)

  26. We thinks maybe your Mom bought those things just so she could get the boxes. The balloon sounds really cool and we can't wait to see it.

    Our Mama is going gaga over High Falls. It has been many years since she was there but she remembers it well. (We thinks going gaga over water is weird.)


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
