Back on The Island

Hello my blog friends! It's been a while. I'm not sufficiently rested for a long post. I've hardly slept. One of the cats kept me awake most of the night wanting petting and attention. I had a dental appointment at noon then had to get groceries. I'm bushed already.

My vacation was fabulous. The photo is of my grandson and I walking home from a stroll in the woods. He had gotten stuck in mud and it was better to walk home than put him in a vehicle. The dog did the same and rode in the trunk. We did not have very far to walk and it was a gorgeous day. I had such fun with the grandchildren. We baked cookies and I baby sat one night. I enjoyed a couple of grandmother chores which lots of grandparents get to do regularly. My sister gets to do those things and I'm quite jealous.

The weeks with my aunts and uncle were great as well. I completed a painting with my aunt the second week and though it was rainier the third week, being on a beach with my other aunt and uncle was fantastic! We had a family party on the last weekend so I got to see relatives without the restraints of a wedding or funeral. I think that's rare in this day and age with families spread all over. All the little ones change so much in a couple of years.

It seems as if Putfile is gone. I no longer have my files there. The site now opens to ebaumsworld. It was a good service for me while it lasted. I listened to a lot of jazz and classical the last week and here is something reminiscent. Here's Diana Krall with The Best Thing for You and Scala and Kolacny Brothers with Heartbeats. Both are beautiful.

My daffodils are beautiful too. I have the first bouquet of the year on the table and I'm off to enjoy them. See you tomorrow.

Welcome back!!! From one grandma to another, you've made lots of memories for you and the kids. Glad you had a good time! Looks like spring is here - finally!

Yes, Carol, spring is here a it's welcome. I had such fun with the little ones! It was the first time they made rolled out cookies and were both fascinated by the process.

Just in time for the daffodils! Looks like you had a great time, and that's good! (That water picture on the photoblog is gorgeous!)

So nice to see you back!

It was wonderful, Nan, a good rest and lots of fun.

Thanks, Ralph. The sunsets there are gorgeous but we had a few days of rain so there weren't as many sunsets as usual. I am filling the house with those daffodils. I have hundreds!
