went shopping yesterday with granddaughter and two great granddaughters. lilly the youngest one was crabby for a nap. her mom went into a store to take back shoes. i stayed in van with girls. lilly was crying big time. i played this little piggy and creepy mouse, had her smiling and laughing when mom came out. she isn't two yet and just a beautiful girl. made me smile that i could make her smile. guess i haven't lost my touch with babies. good day

Each time, on no matter what thread, I see Taxlady's fretful little girl picture, I smile -- it's just so darned cute!

Realizing that I am now the grandma of a teenager (as of yesterday) made me gasp, then smile.

This note makes me smile!

Ha! They are getting older, not much you can do about it but sit back and enjoy! I was floored when I realized Lacey was 22 and in college. And now I have a Grand Daughter-In-Law!!!

My sweetheart did it again.

I was out all day yesterday running errands, appointments, etc. When I arrived home, one side of the kitchen sink was full of three kinds of daffodils. Big ones, little ones, white ones.....

Glenn had gone out on the Harley to run some errands, too, and noticed a hillside covered with the beautiful flowers. He said he didn't want to stop on the bike to get them because they'd be ruined in the saddlebags, so he came home, got the truck and went back and picked them for me.

There are now two huge vases filled to exploding with those lovely blossoms. What a treat!!!!!

The last bouquet he picked for me lasted for a week. I'll bet these do, too. He's such a sweetheart. He always keeps me smiling.

When I got to work this morning, one of the Nurses Assistant's had her new puppy with her, a Basset Hound. I just sat on the floor and petted him and played with his ears, they were so huge! Such a cute puppy and he's going to be big when he gets older.

A bit later, a co-worker invited me to go see her new Grandbaby and she let me hold him. Yes, I was a mess, oohing and gooing all over him. He tolerated it well and slept through me holding him.

Lunch was provided by an Insulin company, we had a really nice spread from The Mustard Seed, Asian-American Fusion. I'm totally overjoyed with Chicken Osaka.

Had a great day!
