One on one time   Leave a comment

Kayla and I went to “Pete’s Dragon” this evening.

She really enjoyed it and even cried once when she thought Elliott the dragon had died.

I assured her he would be fine.

And when he was she said “Nana how did you know?!”
She is 7 and still very innocent.


On the way home she said to me yet again ‘I wish you were my mom”

It warms my heart that she feels that way but I told her that her mom is a good mom and she is doing her best to teach Kayla things, she (Kayla) will need when she grows up.

She is probably too young to understand it all but it was awesome to spend one on one time with her.

It has been a long time since we have.

She just got back from Minnesota today with a new hair cut and a wonderful “I missed you Nana!” for me and a exceptional hug to boot.

Well my vacation and dog and house sitting is officially over.

I am home.

I am so happy to be home.

It was relaxing and trying at the same time with the dogs and I am glad my son and his family are home and they can care for their dogs again.

It is a very beautiful day in Iowa today.

77 with no humidity.

Just glorious.

Me Before You   Leave a comment

I finished the above titled book last night.

It wasn’t as good as it could have been.

I wonder why I find such disappointment in books lately?
It was good but it could have been better.

And I hated the ending.

But it is what it is and this person is published and I never will be so…..


My eldest sister has recommended “Circling of the Sun”  which she has raved over several times.

Usually when someone does that I find the book a disappointment.

But I bought it so I will read it.

It is the next book on my list….
