A few tidbits for you

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while. I guess I was in a funk, but chronic pain can do that to you. Thank you for being patient!

One thing that happened this summer is that this (at the time the youngest) grandson learned how to walk!

And his bigger brother kept searching around his house calling out for me.  “Mawmaw…”  You know, in very sensible places like closets, the kitchen cabinets, and under the chairs.  LOL

The oldest of the grandboys started school!  And developed a new hobby.  Collecting acorns!

And next oldest started Headstart!  It’s so exciting to ride the school bus!!!

The latest big excitement was a new grandboy!  Grandma (me) was just enchanted!

And Great Grandma was just as tickled as she could be!

Mommy, Daddy and Big Brother were all so happy!  It’s hard work being a big brother, but he’s ready for it!

And to end the summer… my lovely baby girl enjoyed Grandpa’s roses!

Weekly Favorites Header

 

So, it’s slowly feeling more and more like Spring!  We’ve had more snow, and then rain, and the days are starting to warm up a bit.  FINALLY!!!  And the more I’m feeling Spring, the more I crave some things that just scream SPRING!!!

Everyone is different, so they all have different things that make them feel a certain way.  Here are a few things from the interwebs that really help me get my season on!

Welcome to today’s Wordless Wednesday!  These photos are of a mushroom WIP I’m making out of polymer clay!  Jebediah is about 1 1/4 inches high.  I will be putting him in a scene that will go on Etsy!  Woo hoo!  I’m still working on him, but I hope to have him finished by next week!  I’d love to hear ideas for the scene!  I was thinking a little creature of some kind.  Maybe a snail?

 

See you next week!  Love and Light!

Zeus Has a Rough Life

I am pretty sure my kids are jealous of our german shepherd dog, Zeus.  LOL  He is so spoiled!  But you wouldn’t hear that from him.  He is constantly pouting and throwing tantrums (staring silently)!  Really, as you can see, Zeus has a very rough life.  LOL

Zeus has a rough life
Well, in all fairness, we only give him raw hamburger, and Milkbones, and scads of tennis balls, and real bones, and cheese, and ice cream, not to mention the hugs and scratches and he basically has his own couch.  But we have been so neglectful not to give him his own remote!!!  I’ll go to a cave and live in shame now.  😉

20 Questions Blog Hop w/EclecticEvelyn March 21 2018

This fun post is in response to a cool Blog Hop I came across!  It’s a 20 Questions Blog Hop!  You can play along by going over to Eclectic Evelyn’s post!  This was my first time to her blog, and boy was I surprised when I got to her 2nd answer and realized we live in the the SAME STATE!!!  Wild and Wonderful West Virginia baby!!!  Yeah!!!  LOL

So, with no further ado, on to the 20 questions!

 

  1. Do you have pets?  Yes, we have a German Shepherd named Zeus, and a cranky kitty named Meow Meow!
  2. Hang gliding or whitewater rafting?  I have a fear of both falling and drowning, so that’s a hard choice, but I’m with you, Evelyn, I’d have to choose rafting!  Or maybe a log ride at Camden Park?  LOL
  3. Have you ever traveled outside of the United States?  Yes, I have been to Canada once on vacation.
  4. How many states have you visited?  I think it would be about 8 states.  Basically from New York to Florida!
  5. If you could have any magical power what would it be?  Being able to change into anything!  I think it would be fun to flit like a butterfly or cruise the oceans like a whale!
  6. Stilettos or sneakers?  I’d choose barefoot as well, but next would be sneakers (or tennis shoes, as I call them).
  7. Instagram or Snapchat?  I don’t get Snapchat at all.  LOL  My kids love it!  I much prefer Instagram!  Maybe that’s because I AM a “gram”???  They call me GRAMma!  LOL
  8. The journey or the destination?  Another toughie!  In general, I’d have to say the journey.  Although, if the destination were Hawaii, I’d have to reserve the right to change my mind!
  9. What are you grateful for this month?  SPRING!!!
  10. What book are you reading?  Harry Potter has ruined me for all other books.  LOL
  11. What did you eat for dinner last night?  Baked potatoes!
  12. What is something currently on your to-do list that has been there more than a month?  Give the dog a bath.
  13. What is the first thing you reach for in the morning?  My glasses.
  14. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?  Reece Cup.
  15. What is your favorite local restaurant for breakfast?  Breakfast…. that’s that meal that morning people eat, right?  LOL
  16. What is your favorite season?  Summer!
  17. What is your state’s motto or slogan?  Mountaineers are always free.  Or… West Virginia Wild and Wonderful!
  18. Where do you think all the lost socks go?  I think they’ve gotten stuck in a parallel Universe.
  19. Who is your favorite Disney Princess?  The Little Mermaid= Ariel
  20. What question would you like me to ask in next month’s hop?  Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi?  LOL

That was fun!  Thank you Evelyn!  I hope to play again!  Everyone is welcome to play along by going to Evelyn’s post!
