Muggy Mondays

And a few short 'stories' to go along with it.

We have a small weenie dog, who has a favorite spot in a chair, which just so happens to belong to 'daddy'.
'Daddy' will walk up to the chair, look at him real cross, and say "Get out of MY chair" to which Buddy just ignores him.  So then he says "Scoot over then", and Buddy will scrunch up against one arm of the chair, and pull his legs up, until 'daddy' gets set down, then he repositions himself comfortably and goes back to sleep.

Last night at church, a 2 1/2 year old, who puts on a show almost every Sunday, came to sit with my grandson, who was sitting beside me. She looked at me, and said, "What yo name? So I told her.  A minute later she again asked 'what yo name?  I told her again, she looked at grandson and said "yo mimi!" Surprised him, that she knew I was his Mimi. Then she said she needed to go to bathroom, and mom is across the building, looking the other direction, so I took her hand and followed her out, and to the bathroom.  She was really wanting to see where her friend, Shaun had gone, but he was headed to the bathroom with his mother, so we all strolled into the ladies room together.   She told me I was to stand 'there' and pointed to the side of the commode, so I held her up, and she did her thing.  What surprised me, she doesn't know me, except to see me in church, so I was not sure what to expect.  When we walked back in, her mom was watching, so I gave her a thumbs up, and then after church, talked to her. 

8 year old granddaughter and her older brother were talking, he was worrying about something, probably tests this week.  She told him that he didn't have anything to worry about until he got real old, like 20 or something.

Maybe I need a change

Though I'm not sure what it would be.
I'm stuck on florals right now, and can't seem to get excited about doing soap.
I've decided that I'm going to take a break from reviewing books, because I feel that I'm burning out.  I still like to read, but I seem to want to read what I want, not what I'm sent, lol.
Talked to my 'adopted' mom today, she calls me a couple of times a week to make sure all is well here.

I've been taking lots of photos and I'm working on doing something different with them.

Another week, another memory

We drove up to the cemetery where hubby's mom is buried yesterday afternoon. It was a beautiful day, but chilly for our area at this time of year. 
My mother in law was one of the kindest, sweetest people that God ever put on this earth.  I never met her until after we were married, and I thought she might have issues with that, but her opinion was, if her son was happy with me, then she loved me for making him happy.  I only knew her for about 3 1/2 years, before she passed away at 65 years old. Never in that time did she ever speak a cross word to me, she was my buddy, my traveling companion, and my friend.   Neither of my daughters were born, before she passed away, so they never had the pleasure of meeting her.  But they both know what a great person she was, from what others have to say about her.  38 years later, I still miss her. Rest in Peace wonderful lady.  Everyone should have a mother or mother in law just like you.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all who visit.
I hope that each of you had the kind of mother that
thought you hung the moon.
For you, your memories will always be with a smile.
And for those of you who had a mother that was not that kind, try to remember one good time, that you shared, and do your best to not be one of those mothers.

I'm one of those, who has a hard time remembering
very many good and loving times with my mom.
No matter how hard I tried, I never measured up.
But, I can remember a couple of good memories, that I hold.

Maybe this isn't what you expected as a mother's day tribute, but I won't paint a rosy picture, just because.
I am one of those that 'tells it like it is.'

Happy Mother's Day!
