Weeds and things

Life has so many ups and downs, and twists and turns. This summer so far for the most part has been wonderful. My little grandson is a total joy and I love the warmer weather and the gardening and being outside! I do love summer.

Over the weekend, Erik and I did a little shopping after seeing his youngest daughter off on a school trip to Cuba and later we were at a birthday party for 2 friends, one 60 yrs and the other 50 yrs.

Sunday had its challenges which leads me to the weeds…… I spent a good part of today pulling weeds and when I say a good part of the day I mean hours, awesome therapy for a mom who needs to pull some weeds from life and sort things out and carry on.  It was super hot today which made the job a bit more challenging but in a way a lot more rewarding. There really is something about weeding the garden that soothes me. I think all the weeds are dealt with for now…

3 of my girls knew how I was today and they all showed up and spent time with me. I am truly blessed and of course my eldest brought my little man 🙂

My little cowboy wearing his Canada Day Cowboy hat from a friend of his moms, his little Onesie  that says My Mommy’s Canadian Hero and his little John Deer Cowboy boots from him Mamie. He has a Onesie that says Made in Texas as you’ll also see.

We had a nice visit with Sarah’s Mother in law and her parents who came up from Texas for a little visit. It was so nice to meet Jerry’s  Mamie and Papa and to see Kathy again.  Sarah’s new family is so lovely that is makes it a little easier to let them move south….though I wonder how I’ll really feel when the time comes. My Mom and Dad are to the right of me, 4 generations happening in this picture.

I really love this picture, Jerry is held by his Great Grandmother, Mamie and Kathy Jerry’s Grammy is to the right. Do you think my little guy will grow up with a strong accent too?

and one last picture because how cute is he?? hopefully I’ll be back to my quilting soon, I just haven’t felt my creative self lately but maybe now that the weeds are pulled it will return!

Oh and I am still running and walking almost daily (almost 4 weeks now) I can really feel the difference it makes. I highly recommend getting out there….one step at a time!
