My first grandson graduated from high school this past Friday. I am so proud of him, its wonderful to see how much he has grown and what a spectacular young man he is. He has been a perfect joy to me since the day he was born. I have so many grand memories of him as a little child, they are priceless. Today his Mom and Dad had a very very nice party for him, its was so nice to see all the tons of people who came to give their congratulations and support. I pray that God will grant him peace, contentment, success in which ever direction he chooses to go, and be with him all his journeys. I pray that Clay will feel God's presence always and lean to God for all the decisions in his life.
Saturday morning I was fortunate to attend a Master Gardener plant sale. What a fun surprise that was for me. As you can see I found several plants, now to get them in their permanent home. I was asked at the sale if I would like to sign up for the Master Gardener program and said I would think about it. After talking to my daughter in laws mother ( who was the one who gave me the head's up on the sale, thank you Terri) I am really considering this option. If any of you have participated in this program I would love to hear your input, pros and cons for doing this.
Saturday afternoon I was headed down to watch my son's girls while he and his wife went out for the evening with friends, I had a pleasant surprise on the way there. Let me back up for a moment and say I LOVE GARAGE SALES!!! There is a detour on the way and as I started down this road of about 16 miles I see some sporadic garage sales then they slowly became more numerous, after I hit this town it was a whole town sale. The best kind! Well I was sad thinking why didn't I leave home earlier so I had some time to stop and play. So I drove through the town and thought to myself " Self, they don't have to leave for their night out till 4:00 and that gives you approx 15 minutes you can play with" soooo yes you guessed it I turned around and went back. Limiting myself to just two sales, and it was lucky for me I picked out two that had something I was interested in. I found this wagon wheel for $8.00, I was just about jumping up and down I was so excited. Then at the next place I found an old 8 pane window to hang on my new porch, :). Well I was very thankful for that opportunity to stop at just two of the sales that I could continue on my way to my son's with a big ole smile plastered on my face with thoughts of where I was going to put my wagon wheel and thinking about just what I wanted to do with that window.
|Sophia loves to get up and down here. She's so sweet.|
Then the pleasure came of having the three girls for the night to myself. They are such a pleasure to watch and this was my first long stretch of having Sophia to myself to. I had a perfectly wonderful time. I do say though that with the amount of spaghetti Gina can put away she will look like spaghetti and the same for Julia with watermelon. Thank God I didn't have to open any cans for them, I DON'T get along at all with their can opener. Someday I am going to buy one to leave at their house that will be mine to use while I am there. Its a little embarrassing to have one of the girls have to take a can to the neighbors to open because Grandma can't use their can opener. lol
Well this week is going to be a week for me to catch on some odds and ends. Hopefully finish planting the annuals I have bought and a couple of shrubs I have waiting to go into their new home. I also want to get a fairy garden done, and work on some more weeding.
take care till next time.....
