April Already

I have time for an update at long last.  I had dental surgery today and am supposed to take it easy. That is not easy for me but I will, at least for the afternoon. The lovely Bella is helping with the post.  I was away for the weekend and she was not at all pleased.  She has been sitting with me ever since.

Last update, I promised pictures of the grandchildren and am delivering fresh ones.  I visited them out of province for the  Easter holiday weekend.

This little guy is 7 months old already.  He has no teeth yet but refuses to eat blended food.  He wants carrot pieces instead of carrots his mommy blends for him. It seems that the mashed potatoes with Easter dinner were enjoyed though, as evidenced in the photo.

His sister is two now and still so much fun to be around.  The other day she was sitting in the swing.  Her dad was burning brush.  He walked by us carrying a load of branches and gave a tired sigh on his way past.  She asked him a couple of times what was wrong? He didn't answer so I said, "Daddy is a bit tired after carrying all the branches".  She looked up so concerned and said, "Do you think a banana would cheer up Daddy"?  My weekend was really great!

Skype is the most amazing invention for grandparents. I Skype with these children two or three times a week. I am not a stranger to them like my grandmother who lived away was to me when I was a kid.  I Skype with my other grandchildren a couple of times a month and it is so great to see them as they grow. When my grandmother came to visit every couple of years, we would be completely different sized children each time.

 Soon we will be out hunting for Mayflowers

I always like to share some cre8ive ideas and here are a couple. I found this sweet music video on, which I list on the side. I do not know the singer, Diane Birch, but absolutely love the video for her song Valentino. This product I found is so cool.  I plan to order some to fix several pairs of eyeglasses.  I am very hard on glassed.  I got a pair of prescription glasses last Thursday and lost them somewhere at my daughter's on the weekend.  She hasn't found them yet.  Please notice too that there is a new link on the side called A View from Eastern Kings to replace a link of a popular blog that ended and I had linked here.

Happy spring everyone.  Enjoy this lovely time of year.  Each day is a gift.

Oh gosh, Gwen, I am changing my header while you were/are here, I think. Which did you see? I've been working on it for 15 minutes. LOL

Cuidado said...

Oh, thank you, Gwen. The horse had been there for a long time. He needed a rest.

Absolutely DARLING g'kids, Cuidado. Eat them up because you know they grow up too quickly. Just last evening we Skyped with 12-year-old Nicholas and mommy Amy. How many times have Astrid and I said we would not be married today if it weren't for Skype!!! :)

Cuidado said...

Perhaps it's time for us to Skype again, Ginnie.
