Aria's birthday is today! 8! She visited a week ago and we went to the American Girl store. It was fun. I think it is so sweet that several grannies work there and they are very helpful.
We later dashed to the airport to pick up Great Grandma! Aria and Atticus know their way around the airport. They moved so fast that the camera couldn't focus!Jenny's camping adventures are fun for me via photos! A pelican! I didn't know we have pelicans in Colorado. (Jody, maybe I need to have A Big Year!) A big year is when you try to find and record as many birds as possible. Jody from Gumbo Lily told me about it and I watched the movie she suggested. It's good! (The Big Year)
One morning I got up early and lit the beeswax candles I bought from the nuns in Boston. (The Holy Nativity Convent - remember when Susan Branch visited because the nuns are BIG fans of SB?)
Christie made Great Grandma's favorite dessert. YUMMY!
We went to the Good Feet store and my mom bought new shoes. She had to try them out at JoAnn's. I went to the restroom and then I had to walk around quite a bit before I found her. She's spry.
She was able to see all of her Colorado family while she was here AND the blossoms remained intact to decorate her visit.
Timothy found my mom quite interesting. He even sat on her lap one day. He's been burrowing under quilts lately because the house still has the remains of winter chill.
When I was a Blue Bird (Camp Fire Girls) we learned a song that had a line in it that makes me feel a little (not a lot) guilty. The line is, "to learn to finish what I begin". Yeah, I don't do that. I started yet another knitting project. It's a cotton bag.
I'm kind of draggy today. I was going to plant seeds but I don't feel like getting dirty. My reluctance to get dirty affects my gardening productivity. Back to knitting . . . .
Happy spring to you (or fall if you are down under). Thank you for always coming by and saying such lovely things. I really love that.
