Our little fourteen month old grandgirlie kept us on our toes during her waking hours. She is busy and on the move.
Baba had to have a little talk with her to let her know that it made me nervous when she chooses to stand on this toy instead of scooting on it.
It isn’t as easy to get good photos these days. As soon as I pull my big camera out Addy wants to investigate and try to grab the camera from me to play with. Baba and Addy spent lots of time with her building blocks and enjoyed “This Little Piggy”.
We are back home. We are still in the waiting room with our house sale and purchase of a new home. You’ll be the second to know if and when we have success on both these fronts. Can’t have one without the other, though. I’m asking God to give me more trust and peace in this waiting period.
As always on our visits to Colville I like take the current view photo from our kids’ driveway. Here’s our May 21st shot.
Soon I’ll share more photos of the Spokane river and a collage from our time at the Spokane Armed Forces Appreciation Parade that always takes place during the Lilac Festival.
Cheers! I’m getting caught up on the Royal wedding since our kids don’t have cable TV and I dvr’d it.
…to get a fresh Spring post up before we hit the road home. This is the Spokane River with the spring runoff rushing to the Columbia river. I’ll post more photos from our evening at the Lilac Military Appreciation Parade after I get home. We’ve had a busy time here with Addy and her parents.
Until later hope all is flowing nicely in your corner of the world.
My favorite Azalea is the Rosebud Azalea. I have 2 older plants and 2 young ones in my planters.
Yesterday I helped Katie at K&A’s new apartment. She built her bookshelves and we emptied book boxes and a couple random boxes. They still have the bulk of their apartment to move but don’t have to be out of it till the 31st of the month. All the stuff we’ve organized so far were the things they were still storing at our house. Their new place has about 250 more square feet.
I’ve been away from my computer a lot this week and missed doing my usual visiting. Someday soon my blogging mojo will return.
Our daughter in law posted this great selfie of her and our little grand. Mommy and daughter, love it.
Our other daughter in law posted this photo to facebook on Mother’s day with a lovely tribute. This was taken before Addy was born. Our girls with me.
These are two of our rhododendrons that are in their glory. I took this photo on Mother’s day. They are generally in their fullness for Mother’s day each year.
Hope you had a good weekend. We enjoyed a meal downtown with our western Washington kids on Saturday evening. On Mother’s day we worked hard with temps reaching 85 in Seattle. Mowed the lawn and finished an addition to our landscape with one more section of privacy fence and a new arborvitae.
Here’s the sad long story of my arborvitae purchase at the Home Depot. While Dear was finishing the staining of our new fence section, I took the truck to the HD to purchase the Arborvitae. It was close to noon and the HD was hopping with people buying plants with or without their mothers in tow. With difficulty I pushed and shoved the heavy potted plant onto one of those rolling carts to take it into the store for purchase. The line to the cash registers was circling around the indoor plant section and it was a nice breather after my muscle man effort getting the plant on the cart. When I reached the register the employee said she’d call for someone to help me load the plant into the bed of the truck. With high expectations of help I walked quickly to the truck which was a fair distance in the parking lot and drove without running over the groups of humanity walking down the center of the parking lot and reached the designated loading area. A young man was waiting by my cart to “help” me. He was 25ish, I’m 67ish. I had to help him get that heavy plant into the truck. Poor young man was weaker than me. I still said thank you but truth be told he should have thanked me.
Katie and Andrew arrived shortly after me getting the plant home to borrow the truck to move some of their stuff to their new apartment which is a lot closer to us. Andrew single handed picked up that Arborvitae and set it on the ground. That was the kind of help I was expecting at the Home Depot. Sigh…
How was your weekend?
