Scarecrow created a memory
I did something this week that I’ve never done before. I helped to build a scarecrow. This was the final episode in a summer long project working with a great group of kids and their garden.
Care is in capable hands
Here we go again.
Life is good with fresh food
It is the height of the gardening season.
A timeout can be helpful
Sometimes a time-out can be a good thing. My three-year old grandson, Nicholas, and I were playing one evening. I won our sword fight or whatever it was we were playing. He put his hands on his hips and told me I was in time-out. I was not to get up until he told me I could.
Film camera is preferred
I finally got my pictures back.
Cooler weather good for chili
I’m making something today that I rarely make in July.
Trips to beach were pleasant
A little over a week ago we were at the beach in Galveston.
Trips were full of surprises
“Can we go down to the creek?” It was to be the first of many requests while we were on our recent visit to the grandchildren.
Kids delighted by museum
“We’re going to the see-um! Do you want to come with us?” three-year-old Nicholas excitedly asked his grandfather.
Time with mom is precious
Sometimes I forget how long everything takes.
All kids should live carefree
The last time I talked to my daughter I found out that their school is out for the summer. Granddaughter Emma was asked what her plans were for her vacation. She said she was going to carve boats out of soap and race them down the creek.
She is surrounded by flowers
“Dick was an avid gardener, spending just slightly more time working his garden than sharing the fruits of his labors, often leaving small bouquets of roses on doorsteps and office reception counters, as well as boxes of fruits and vegetables."
Decoration Day was always May 30
It used to be called Decoration Day and was always on May 30, no matter what day of the week it occurred.
Spent evening catching up
The call came out of the blue, as it usually does.
Decision needs to be made
It seems that last winter’s casualties are multiplying.
