Miscellany Monday

Good Monday morning to you!  Thank you so much for sharing your day with me.  I so appreciate the many of you that stop by and seem to enjoy this little corner of mine.  I love your comments, whether here, on FB or in spoken word.  I really wish that I had started blogging long before I did, but hey, it's okay and it probably was the "right" time when I actually started some 4 1/2 years ago. Here's to the randomness of Mondays.....................brought to you by sweet Carissa!

A little fish........
This little squink-eyed boy has become quite the swimmer this summer.  He absolutely loves the water and after swimming lessons again this year, he's pretty much got it figured out.  Can you see why this little boy steals his CiCi's heart?  

Sportin' it...........
  Yep, she got that hot pink cast that she wanted.  She did not get it until last Thursday because the swelling was still too bad when she went last Tuesday.  She says that it much easier to manipulate now that she has a cast and not that big splint.  She's figuring it out little by little and said she is doing quite well.  But, that's how my girl rolls, she's nothing short of a trooper. ~they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree don't they~ wink~  This Momma sure wishes that the many miles did NOT separate us.

Princess time.........
  The Princess spent Friday afternoon and night with me and Poppa and what a fun time we had.  She enjoyed using colors and markers on a big sheet of brown paper taped to the floor. Then it was popcicle time and then on to water the patio plants with Poppa.  Of course, after work, a cookie is always good.  And, she loves our labs and they love her.  And, she got a manicure from Poppa. How's that for a good Poppa?  And, to wind down before bedtime she watched a Woody Woodpecker cartoon on the Ipad with ear phones.  She thought that was the neatest!  Hard to believe that this little girl will soon be 4 years old. Where has the time gone?

Daddy update.........
This picture of my Dad was taken yesterday at church.  He's looking good isn't he?  When I think back to two years ago at this time and the Drs. gave us little to no hope for him, I'm still amazed.  He has had some really good days as of lately and he grows more accepting of his situation as the days have gone by.  It has been such a tough, tough journey for him but the Lord has been faithful and we continue to thank Him for his provisions for all of us during this most difficult time.  Your continued prayers are always felt and appreciated.

Added note........One of my cousins and his wife will be arriving from Virginia this afternoon and I will be busy being the "hostess with the mostess" for the next few days. So, I likely will not be visiting around, but never fear, by week's end, I'll be back with a whole bunch to share and to check in on you.  Happy week!

  2. Your grand children are sooo cute. I am jealous of you having at least the Princess so near. I know that she has a ball with you and Tommy. I was watching your daddy by ya'll in church yesterday, and thinking to myself what a miracle he truly is. We can try to worry a problem into a corner and figure out what to do, but the Lord God's plans are the ones which are accomplished perfectly. I need to remember that DAILY. Hugs.
