Well, smart child, she took pictures first. This is impressive.
And on my list for two weeks now is to sew some baby blankets. The fabric was bought and washed, then folded and stacked.
Sewing creates a mess and takes time I don't have, but two were sewn tonight.
He said it was blue with slippery edges and then he and his sisters dug around in the bins of outgrown clothes in his closet and found it. Once upon a time it was chenille on the front and blue satin on the back.
That was a very long time ago.
Here he is, sprawled out with it in that chair back from the upholsterer last week. I like the chair, still getting used to it. It's darker and more textured than the old fabric.
I do understand.
A little lonely and bereft for myself, true, but that's totally not the point.
My weekend starts right here.
Snow is forecast for tomorrow.
Whatever! It's still 68 degrees in this bedroom now, windows wide open.
Nothing is going to disrupt my peace.
Onward, May. love, Val

John did some work on the computer and the wireless, trying to speed it up.
We'll take whatever help we can get.
Onward, tomorrow is Monday. love, Val

And some local urchins biking around the park:
This little girl is having the time of her life.

And then after lunch when I tried to catch a few zzzs, she poked me in the face and took away my covers. I said, "Be nice to your Grandma. Let's hug and snug and be nice together."
She said, "no."
Then she ate Lucky Charms and burped in Kari's face.
And yet also somehow a bit miraculous.
Onward! Life is nothing but good. love, Val

It was a great party, hosted in the big room at John's work.
You're still fuzzy and friendly with that sweet grin that squints up your eyes.
Happy Birthday, beautiful boy, love Grandma and Grandpa and Everybody
