Tuesday Time to Tackle: Day with the Granddaughter!

Today I got to spend much of the day with my happy granddaughter.  We hung out together while her mom had a doctor's appointment, then spent some time grocery shopping.  She's such an easy-going girl and rarely fusses. 
 
I failed to take my camera (bad Grandma!), so you'll just have to take my word that we had a great time.  I read  Brown Bear, Brown Bear to my granddaughter, and I was delighted that she sat through two readings of it, and seemed to enjoy the story.  

My blog posts don't occur as frequently and regularly as in the past, and I'm still trying to figure out if I want to make a schedule change.  I will continue each weekend to participate in the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop--please join me!--but will take some days off sometime during each week.  If I ever decide on a fixed plan, I will let you know.  :-)

  2. Bad Grandma! NO pictures?!! Please think of this next time you have her over.... Although quality-time with a little girl is always more important than making pictures of her...

    Having the same problem with the blogging routine. Hard to get a regular time to blog when you're busy with other things, isn't it?! Well, even if you just blog once a week, that's just fine. Life is more important. Blogging is just a happy extra. Thank you for visiting my blog though. You are my only faithfull reader left I think.... Lost the rest during all those silent days/weeks. Ah well, there are worse things.... Have great week!

  3. Sounds like a lovely time with your granddaughter.
    I haven't posted much myself lately. Life is just too busy sometimes.

  6. I can't help but reprimand you for the lack of photos but I look forward to seeing them soon! Please? Your day with your granddaughter sounds like the perfect day to me and one I have enjoyed often with Amara -- and 9 years later those days are even better! You have so much fun in your future!

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be

Ten Things of Thankful: From Sunrise to Moonset

Cars and trucks on a highway travel toward the rising sun                                    John and I made a quick, task-oriented trip to California last week. We wore our masks and stayed at an acceptable social distance from others (which is hard for grandchildren to understand, but we mostly succeeded.) We're now home, and at the "I need a vacation to recover from my 'vacation' " stage, which makes sitting down to compose a TToT post a bit of a challenge. However, I know that I will feel better by the end of this post, so bear with me if you will.  1. I'm thankful that we had no problems with traffic going there or coming home. We left our hotel at about quarter to four on Friday morning. The early start, fewer families traveling this year, or, most likely, a combination of the two, made for an easy drive.  2. I'm thankful for books to help pass the time. We haven't actually finished yet (as I was reading aloud, and my voice can only last for so l
