Granny Tells You What's Going On

Growing

| May 11, 2009

Lately, things haven’t be behaving to suit me. It’s funny how little the world cares what I think. Funny. Since the sun is shining and I really have nothing to complain about, I show you a few new photos of the yard. At the end of last week, Papa finished tilling the garden, and put […]

A Side Trip

| April 24, 2009

GD2 is planning a big day for us again today, so I just have a minute to let you know how much fun yesterday was. Our lovely littlest granddaughter arrived Wednesday night with big plans. She wanted to say a long time, and do lots of STUFF. We were planning on a “Day Out With […]

I Was Just Wondering

| April 22, 2009

When we started this little home improvement project, I scrambled the whole place up. This is a small, comfortable house, and there is hardly room for the things we choose to keep here. Trying to empty a room to work on it is quite a trial. We have survived, and I started putting things “back” […]

Busy, Busy, Busy

| March 9, 2009

We had a nice four day visit with GD2, which ended yesterday when we took her to meet her parents. She is delightful, and always saying something cute. OK, I am biased. You are too, when talking about your grandchildren. Here she is on top of the hippo, on the way into the zoo. We […]

Visitor

| March 8, 2009

We’re near the end of a visit from GD2.  It’s been a lot of fun, and I’m a little tired.  I’ve visited the Detroit Zoo, the Henry Ford Museum, and we even spent some time picking up sitcks from the yard.  We’re meeting her parents to return her today, but she’ll be back soon. I’ll […]

Progress

| March 2, 2009

I pulled the last of my unentered genealogy data out of it’s hiding places and piled it on my desk this morning. The pile is about seven inches high. When I made my New Years resolution to get this done, the pile was bigger. That big red accordion folder which was inside the file box […]

A Taste of Spring

| February 4, 2009

It was a little warmer for a day or so there, but now it’s back to the deep freeze.  We are supposed to have a warm weekend, but it won’t help Papa and I any, we are headed north to M-in-L’s house.  She’s having a birthday, and we want to be there. I’m busy as […]

Back to the Grind

| February 3, 2009

We sure had a time with GD2 over the weekend. First was Sesame Street, on Friday morning. I think she has pretty much outgrown Sesame Street, but she had a good time, and was happy to select a gift from the sales area. It is a flashlight looking thing, with Elmo on the top, and […]

Today’s the Day

| January 30, 2009

I guess this is the last trip to Sesame Street Live I’ll be making.  I’ve enjoyed quite a run over the past few years.  The first year GD2 went, she was just a baby, perhaps 7 months old.  D2 came along, there was no way I could have taken all three otherwise.  Anyway the other […]

Driving, Visiting, Watching

| January 29, 2009

I drove over to Jackson, Michigan yesterday to meet D2 and pick up GD2. She is the last per-schooler in our crowd, She is four. She’s a youngest child, and it’s obvious. She used big words, and has big ideas. She knew it was a long ride to Grandma’s, but she was resigned to that,  […]
