17. I’m thankful for laughter. The way my honey laughs with her whole body, how my brother slaps his knee when it’s a real good one, the grandsons giddy sounds, my friends smiling eyes when they laugh, strangers passing by who are cracking up, my family’s sounds of laughter at a family function, and myContinue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Seventeenth”
Wow. And wow again. I think I may have started more than one blog entry with that word and here I am using it once again. Oh well, I’m getting older and that means repeating myself repeatedly. I’m OK with that. I digress… Wow. It’s been a whirlwind of activity and adventure since we leftContinue reading “Keyser Soze Has Nothing On Us”
Amnesic. Bracelet. Craig. Ford. Rockwell. Ridiculous. Fun. Abduction. Showdown. Yes.
Dear Sebastian… We have spent a lot of fun time with you in the last few weeks. Hanging out with you while your parents went on dates, watching you swim, going to your gym class graduation, visiting with you at Grandmas house, and having breakfast and dinner with you a few times. It’s been soContinue reading “Fun Through Photos”
Dear Sebastian… Your Grandmas have been so busy in the last couple of weeks, a lot of time with you, that we haven’t had time to write anything. We are so slow at this stuff sometimes. We are going to have to write another catch-up post about all the fun stuff we’ve done… like hangingContinue reading “No Disappearing Act”
Dear Sebastian… We had such a fun time with you this last weekend. Your Mommy and Daddy went to Chicago for the weekend so we got to stay with you while they were gone. We had so much fun! We came over in the morning on Saturday and you were already up. Your parents leftContinue reading “Farm Animals Drink From The Well”
Dear Sebastian… We had so much fun with you this weekend. We came over to your house and hung out with you last night, made dinner, and were there when you took your bath and went to bed. We had so much fun with you that we decided to stay over so we could beContinue reading “Slumber Party”
Dear Sebastian… Early in the month of November we went all the way to California to see your Great Grandparents, your Aunt Cathy, Uncle Clem, Uncle Don, and Cousins… Charles, Elizabeth, and Dave. We flew all the way there so we could all have a party for your Great Grandpa Don who turned 80. LivingContinue reading “Clowns and Hats and California”
We had such a fantastic weekend. So great that I’m tired today. OK, maybe to be more accurate I should say that I’m partially tired from having to get up in the middle of the night to the let the dogs out. For some reason, and this is a rare event, they both had toContinue reading “What a Weekend… I’m Exhausted!”
Our third outing in the Friday Adventure series finds us first getting coffee, then going to the bank, then getting a parking ticket while in said bank (we tried to pay, but couldn’t). We saw the guy putting it on the windshield when we came out and Karen tried to chat with him about it,Continue reading “Friday Adventures Part Drei”
Where Is Sandy?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.
Had a great time at Lisa’s house today (thanks for hosting!) gathering with some of our peeps and watching Superbowl 45. As always Sandy provided a little game of hide and seek. Gotta love this girl.
No Ball Playing, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Mary, Martin, and I had a bit of fun while we were wandering around outside near the Glessner House taking photos after the wedding as evidenced by the photo here. We had a little laugh about this and of course had to take a picture. I love hangingContinue reading “No Ball Playing”

Traveling The Sandy, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Such a fantastic time last Saturday with the girls. What a great group of people and just a lovely time. So, when are we going again?
Navigating The Rapids, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There were a few sets of rapids. Nothing too strenuous or scary. They were just enough for us to all yell WOO HOO as we went down.
Enjoying The River, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There were 9 of us all together. Three in a raft, and the rest in tubes. Man… Ican’t say enough about this little adventure. So much fun!
We seem to never have a dull moment. Ever. Always on the go, always “stuff” to do. Always. Always. Always. This weekend was no exception. To sum up… We had furniture delivered Friday evening and then met friends for dinner at The Varsity (it was great to see you Jimmy! … and the rest ofContinue reading “Sandwiching… and Other Adventures”
I copied this from my friend L’s blog, Tin Can Canoe. Check it out if you have the time, she’s brilliantly creative. The idea behind the quiz: “this is called “FIRST REACTIONS QUIZ”. You have to type the FIRST thing that comes to mind whenever you read these 31 things. You can’t think and goContinue reading “Initial Word Reactions Quiz”
Monday… Who would’ve thunk it, I’m glad it’s Monday. LOL OK, maybe I won’t go that far, but still. Our lives have been hectic, and busy. It’s great fun having this rental house as a project, but we are SO DONE with the whole painting thing. We spent yesterday over there working on it, again.Continue reading “Wearing Us Down”

My friend Penny and I work at the same place, for the time being anyway since she’s retiring soon (yeah Penny!), and we love to occasionally play a bit of a word game with each other. Here’s how it went today… Oh, and Penny, I’m going to miss you when you leave this place, soContinue reading “Word Play”
