planting flowers

   spent an hour planting some more flowers and six hostas.

it is cool out side to the point of almost being cold, but I did it anyway simply because I wanted it to get done before it gets to 82 degrees tomorrow.

I will have the girls till noon and then plan on just enjoying the day.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

get my grand daughters tonight and over night.

it will be wonderful as always.
I miss spending time with them and it seems like I hardly ever get to anymore.

I am truly a blessed woman to have the four grandchildren I have.


sometimes I yearn to go on a vacation all by myself.

sort of like how my ex-sister-in-law is doing.

she has been on the road for over 5 months and that is a bit longer than I would need to go.

however a week or so would be awesome!

my sister took this picture in Estes Park in Colorado in September.
I wish I was there again.
Actually I wish I was just about anywhere.
Too bad I couldn’t have won that mega-million lottery, or at least a small piece of it.
I would become a traveling fool.

I’m watching the movie “Phenomenon” with John Travolta

I love John in this movie

I think it is one of his best.
He is a good actor.


my daughter is slowly making her way back to her son’s father.
I am so hopeful that she will realize she wants and needs him in her life and they can make it work for my grandson.

I am quite sure if she set her mind to this, it could work.

relationships are constant work.

if anyone tells you differently than they must not be living in the real world.

I was awaken last night around one am, due to thunder and lightning.

it was great to see.

everything is plush and green but we needed the rain.


5) It is Friday, need I say more?
4) I can sleep later than four thirty tomorrow morning!
3)We get Aaron back this weekend for a full week

2) I get to share lunch with an old friend today

and the number one thing today that makes my day a keeper!
I got to spend some time with all four grandkids and three of my four children last night.


okay it isn’t snowing but it is cooler than what we have had for the last couple of weeks.
I know we are spoiled here in Iowa from all of this great weather but I actually had to wear a coat today and we have the heat back on at nights at home.


my very favorite day of the week is finally here!
