Back to school.

My granddaughter is back in school already 10th grade.
How did that happen so soon.
It seems like yesterday that she was just a little one asking me to read
One more book or playing in the sand 
At the Beach.

I love to plant things. 
Every year I wait for flowers to begin to bloom again.
My garden makes me happy.

21 years ago

My dad died on Mother's Day. What a bittersweet holiday this is for me. My mom has been gone for 5 years now.
I miss them.
A couple of my favorite old pictures.
My brother and me and my dad. California

My parents before me :)

I posted this on Facebook the other day and everyone was telling me my Granddaughter
Piper looks just like me here. 
Daddy and Me.

Happy New Year
This was taken on Christmas Eve. Oldest granddaughter teaching the youngest to play Hello Kitty Uno. When Livvie was little it was her favorite game to play.
My trees are down. I took them down before my surgery on December 30. I wasn't expecting to have surgery but had to have my gallbladder removed. So I have been taking it easy, recovering and thinking about all the things I want to do this year.
Like blogging more.
Crafting more. 
Gardening more.
Visiting my favorite blogs more often.

Window sill flowers

Flowers on the window sill make me happy.
