What a day. Rain stopped the trimming so I worked on the house. Got a lot done! Packing, organizing, and cleaning. I stayed with GS for most of the day and had a blast! He's 2 1/2 years old and is mimicking almost everything he hears and sees. when his parents came home his dad was playing with him and GS took off on a flying leap and ran from his dad's shoulders down his back and legs to get to his mother.(Dad was lying flat on the floor stretched out on his stomach). I laughed and told his dad "you just get no respect!" and baby immediately announced to mother "I get respect". I told him I had to go home because his great aunt was hungry and he looked at me and said "I hungry...I go with Maggie (me). We just have the best time egging him on. Today we watched short portions of 2 Disney movies, made a tiger out of play dough, played with our food (grapes make great eyeballs and bugs....don't ask.....) had a growling contest, read books, and did laundry. We took a long nap, tried on clothes, and made peanut butter fingers out of a sandwich (again, don't ask) ..He doesn't cuddle with me...we play and play hard, up and down, jumping, climbing steps, and learning without it being a chore. Love time with that kid. It will make the rest of the week go easier.
I'm working a half day tomorrow and using the afternoon to finish cleaning the car and resting. More storms are expected. The yard will have to wait. I was able, however, to get up into the garden and get the rest of the new lilies marked with labels. Just takin' it day at a time.
Be blessed all and know that regardless of the pressure you face today, tomorrow will eventually get better. Choose joy, choose to be the best you can be and just keep Sparkin'!!
