Sunday Fun Day With Lyra

Our 6YO granddaughter Lyra has been here since Friday and is going home tomorrow. She is SO much fun! We did a lot of stuff yesterday, were out and about, but today I couldn’t do much of anything (high pain/low mobility) so we hung out here and did stuff. We played our ukuleles – she …

Our precocious wonderfully sweet and stylish 6YO granddaughter, Lyra, is spending a few days with us this weekend. Today we did some running around and then one of our stops was at the famous Cops & Donuts in Clare, MI as we passed through. She really enjoyed her chocolate frosted cruller and hot chocolate.

Sunday Visitors; Amazing Maisie

It was a chillier day today but the sun was bright so we decided to make a fire in the firepit and enjoy God’s creation anyway! I don’t recall if I’ve shared Maisie’s story, or how God made her perfect for me and got us together, what she was like, etc. but she was a …

Friday – ROAD TRIP!

Yesterday we decided to go on a road trip. We’d been in the Saginaw area on Thursday, so we chose to go in the other direction, and made for the west side of the state – Grand Rapids, MI. On the way there we went to Greenville, as there was a store I wanted to …

A Day In Saginaw

Pete had an appointment at the Veterans Administration in Saginaw today so we took the opportunity to stop for lunch beforehand. We also stopped at a thrift store while we were in the city but I didn’t take any pictures of that. We had a wonderful day together, as always!

Autumn Colors/Out And About

Today we took a little trip for Pete’s appointment at one of the VA Clinics here in Michigan. I took some photos of the colors along the way. Most were taken through the windshield but when we were stopped – or could safely stop – I took them through an open window or from outside …
