Looks like I’m the referee!
Must be a middle child. 🙂

Here is one of our patients with the “Ref”.

And the scary guy.

On the Beach

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

What a beautiful Sunday afternoon!
Bill and I took a walk on the beach. We brought along the camera and the GPS. 🙂
There is an organization that will come and pick up debris from the beach if it is too large for folks to handle. Things that have floated in on the tide after a storm and need to be retrieved are their speciality. Bill had offered to get the co-ordinates of this large mooring thingy for the CFPIA organization so they could put in a request for removal.

Had to get a photo of the Rock we see from our home. We judge the tide by the # of birds on top of the rock. (or how many birds we think COULD be on the rock.):)
This looks like a 45 bird tide! LOL

This washed up a year or more ago. Sometime this summer it was washed further up the beach.

Three Weeks

Friday, October 26th, 2007

Thursday, Great Grammie and I had the pleasure of taking Kim and Jack shopping.

Jack was just three weeks old. He did a little talking with his Great Grammie.
Then we bundled him off to go shopping for a Halloween costume for his Grammie.

What a time we had trying to find a referee costume! “Try Spencer Gifts first” is my advice to anyone shopping for a Halloween ‘get-up’. 🙂
After success at Spencer Gifts, we dined at The Longhorn. Jack slept through the entire dinner! What a good boy!

The Wood Pile

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

What is it about a fresh delivery of fire wood?

Is it that it warms you three times? One to cut and split, one to stack and one burning in the wood stove.(We only get the stacking and the wood stove part, as we have it delivered just the right size for the stove.)

But I think it warms the heart and soul, too.

It was a beautiful warm afternoon, yesterday, and I had plenty to keep me inside, but that pile of wood called, and who could refuse?

There is the smell of fresh cut wood. There is the ‘thunk’ of one log against another. And it is a bit like eating salted peanuts, “I’ll just stack one more barrow full.” and then there is one more….

The mind is free to wander.

Mine goes back to a time when little hands were there to help. The weather crisp and oak leaves falling. As time passed the little hands were big enough to really help and somehow the interest in helping stack wood was gone !

I remember my young neighbor coming over to help me. He offered to help and said he would be right back. Off home he ran and was back in a flash with his Calvin and Hobbs book. He then read to me from that humorous book. Thank you Ryan.!

My life is full and rich. And I have a cord of wood left to stack. 🙂

Dinner with Jan and Milton

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Jan and Milton invited the family to their home for dinner tonight.

I only took 2 photos.

I was being teased royally for all my photo taking and all my posting!
How can that be? Could there be too many photos? Has going digital has made me crazy? 🙂

Here are two of my nieces and my grandson getting to know each other. 🙂

Oh! Boy! have I got a cute one for you!

Today was the Ed Barrett Pie Race at St. A’s.
Leah and Cory came from afar and ran in the race. Kim, Anne, Jack and I were spectators along with the guest of honor Great Grammie.
Here you see Great Grammie holding Jack in the golf cart provided for her.
It was rainy and warm. Not bad at all!
Not like some past years where it was so raw and cold!

Two Weeks Old Today!

Woo Hoo! I’m two weeks old!

Just can’t seem to get my eyes opened today. For some reason, they keep trying to wake me up! What’s up with that?

Waho. They wanted to feed me. Boy do I feel good now. 🙂

They look very capable, don’t you think?
