Three and a Half

So here I go – off the cuff again. My excuse is my three and half (that’s very important now) year old grandson and I got an unexpected day and a half together. I took it and ran – the heck with thinking about blogging! A couple of moments to note: he looked over at me while we were watching a television show that had brought me to tears. He asked me if I was sad and I said no, it was so beautiful it made me cry. He thought for a second and then told me my eyes were broken. It didn’t make him cry so I guess that makes sense.

The next day we went to my garden, where only the asparagus and spinach have dared to peek up. I have a collection of critters out there (made of metal) such as a frog, ants, a fish, a bee, a dragonfly, and a ladybug. We spent some time there and when we left, he told me my zoo was very nice.

I want to put up a rope swing and my grandson and I picked out a tree, which is a bigger deal than you might think. Now to sand some wood and get a big hole drilled in it. (I have no clue how to do that – but I will figure it out.) Finally, I need to find out what kind of rope to use. Suggestions are appreciated.

This is one of those wonderful weeks when I will see all of my children (with the exception of my beautiful daughter-in-law who is doing grad-school finals – yikes) and grandchildren. So awesome with the exception of the ‘quiet-house syndrome’ that follows. Oh well. Have a wonderful week. Barb
