The Grands’ First Day of School 2022

A few photos from the morning of Aug. 23 before school of my beautiful grandchildren (and daughter & son-in-law…and Lyra’s favorite pet chicken…). I can’t believe how much taller Leelan is than Casey! And Lyra – our family chicken whisperer – is beautiful in her fanciest dress to start at her new school and make …

VIDEO: Vlog #2110 Aug. 2, 2022 – Surprise! Bonus Day with Family!

I’d planned to do laundry today, but when the opportunity came to go visit Bill & Casey & the grands, I jumped at the chance! This video has a little of everything, from the arts (music and visual arts) to bike races!

VIDEO: Vlog #2105 July 16, 2022 – Fun With Family

We spent the day hanging out with our daughter/son-in-law/grandkids at their new home in the country where the kids are discovering the joys of the outdoors, nature, and critters! Leelan’s house bunny is also learning to love the great outdoors. They served us an amazing meal of smoked VERY fresh chicken, squash directly from the …

I only took a few photos for this vlog, but forgot to add them on to the end. So they will be shared below the video. ALSO Pete told me what the unidentified items were on the receipt; he’d put a couple of things in the buggy that I didn’t see. One of them was …

Birthday/Mother’s Day With The Family – May 8, 2022

We had a great time, as always, with Casey & Bill & the kids as we celebrated my 65th birthday and Mother’s Day. We have a family tradition that the birthday girl/guy gets to choose where to go for their dinner, and I chose their house. Not only are they a very busy family, but …

Our Day With The Grands

Since Bill had stuff to do, Pete and I went over to watch Luna while he was gone. Then we were invited to stay for supper, so we were still there when Leelan and Lyra got home from school, and got to spend time with all 3 of them – and Bill, of course – …

Monday Memories – April 18, 2022 Edition: Little Leelan

Due to circumstances outside of her control, Casey had to move back home with us a few days before Leelan was born. As she was going to school at night plus working full-time this seemed to be the best temporary solution. Then she took a second job at a local bank after finishing school with …

Fun at Bill & Casey’s – April 16, 2022

Bill and Casey invited us over for a turkey dinner, and we were happy to accept. They prepared a delicious meal, with the turkey, of course, the best mashed potatoes I’d ever had, gravy, corn, and rolls. I made some cookies to take (low carb/dairy-free so everyone could partake!) for dessert. Though the meal was …
