Photo Blogging Challenge: Happy

I'm linking up with A 'lil Hoohaa for September's Photo Blogging Challenge.  The theme for September was "happy," and I just knew this would be an easy theme for me! 
I spent lots of time with my granddaughters this month.  We went to fun places like Disneyland:


and the zoo:


On our way home from the zoo, we stopped at the hospital:


Their mommy had a baby boy--now the girls have a little brother!


Welcome, baby!

  4. YOU GOT ME! I was thrilled to see Disneyland and all of you having so much fun. I was brought right back to my own childhood. We lived in San Diego for a few years and I remember loving our trips to Disney. Then came the "casually stopping by the hospital" because MOM HAD A BABY! Woo hooooo!!!!!! How WONDERFUL!!! Congratulations!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
