Poof---its gone!!

Time - that is 
Where oh where do the days go? 
From the last weeks in July until now it has been a whirl wind!!!
I managed to: 

  • Make the three youngest grands each 2 dresses and a nightgown.  
  • Had the three of them here for two weeks. 
  • Celebrated my birthday and our anniversary. 
  • Refinished two chairs for a granddaughter.  
  • Made a trip to Hinckley MN to reunite with our Lake Havasu friends who live in the Midwest;
  • Organized and lead two ATV trips 
  • Built a fairy garden with a granddaughter!!

Whew, no wonder I have no trouble falling asleep at night, here I thought it was my clear conscience!!!

I have my blog printed into book form about once a year.  One of my grands innocently said; "Oh grandma, when you're dead, these will be a real treasure!!"  We'll I'm not dead yet, so I make memories and back up those memories with a "Blog-to-Book"

Hopefully in the days to come, I will share our happenings from the past six weeks.  

And that's the way it is................
