Times like these...

Not sure how coherent I'll be in this blog. My brain is shutting off without my permission. I actually fell asleep sitting here in front of my computer a few minutes ago waiting for the washing machine to finish so that I can put the clothes in the dryer.

Today, the kids and I went to their great grandmother's 90th birthday party. Friends and family from far and wide came to see her and share her day. We had a gorgeous blue October sky, with plenty of sunshine for the kids to enjoy the small playground and field outside the church where the party was held. People who hadn't seen each other for fifty years reunited over slices of white bakery cake and ham biscuits.

I hope I'm still around when I tun 90. I hope I have as much zest and love as Big Granny, and I hope she makes it to 100, so we can do this all over again.

  1. Somedays I say "I really hope I live to be a hundred" but only if I'm still mobile. I take care of an 80 year old who still plays basketball. That's the kind of 80 year old I wanna be. Nice to meet your blog, by the way. *=-)
