Grocery shopping with my children in the nineties…

Grocery shopping with my grand daughter….

La la la la la… Mandarin oranges.. Yes, let’s talk to every nice older lady about your warm hat. La la la…. dropped your boot.. here let me get that for you… la la la la…..

The weather is supposed to be horrid for the next week, high winds and heavy rain, which is just fine by us. We have lots of food and firewood. Nothing to do but play with the baby and watch the storms.

E has the next ten days off work he is on mandatory playtime duty.

It seems even the whales are happy granddaughter is back. An orca came by yesterday afternoon. We haven’t seen one since she was here last.

She is walking now and has lots of words. Dog being the most often said as the puppy is never far from her side. He sleeps outside her door when she is napping. On guard duty I guess.

  1. I love this. I know it sounds weird to say, but I am sooooo looking forward to being a grandmother one day! Being the mom is exhausting and hard and not really all that much fun for me. But I think I’ll be a great grandma, lol!

    Your granddaughter is so lucky to have you and your home to come to! Enjoy!


    • Looking back the hard work the exhaustion the stress was the happiest time of my life. I wish I had understood that at the time. I miss the days when my children slept down the hall from me desperately.. I’m guessing there is a lesson learned somewhere that it was the hard work which gave us the payoff now of great relationships with our adult kids.. the grand daughter is definitely the best thing that has happened to us since the kids grew up…

      • I know that’s the truth! I already miss their baby days with a passion, even though those were some of the hardest and longest days of my life! Hard work does give the greatest satisfaction.
