We had our 3 year old grandson Caleb here for 4 days. He was a very good boy! Here he is having a bowl of "mac cheese and peas". He's such a character! We had fun with him.Grandpa helped him build a General Store with our 2 sets of Lincoln Logs. He was quite proud of it. After he was done, he picked up all the logs and put them away without even being asked!
Buddy the dog has had a tenuous relationship with the youngest 2 of our 6 grandkids. They are active and can be rough with him. But this time Caleb was more gentle with him and they became good friends! It was a joy to watch. I quietly grabbed my camera and recorded the activity on the footrest of my chair. :-) Some nuzzling was going on.
Some smelling.. lots of giggling..And then.. awwwww....! Our son and DIL got in at 4 pm and her mom brought Hayden here for them to pick up.
Life is getting back into our normal routine. I loaded the dishwasher last night with most of my Jadeite.. it made my heart glad to see all of that translucent green vintage glass glowing in there as I opened it up.
Plates and bowls. I forgot to tell you that one of my auction purchases - 4 Anchor Hocking Alice (floral) plates arrived all broken to bits. It was such a shame to see those 4 plates that had survived from the 1940s all smashed up. I contacted the seller and she apologized for the poor packing and agreed to send 4 more. They arrived yesterday and were much better packaged. All clean now and ready to use!
Our sunflowers are still looking gorgeous!
Another sunny Autumn day looking out my back door through my Fall wreath.
Here is a photo I just received of Jake and Brooxie - she is a reader of my blog and they stopped at Multnomah Falls to visit me a few weeks ago while I was volunteering in the Visitors Center. Wasn't that nice? They are back home now and sent me this photo.I will be heading to the Falls in an hour to have lunch and volunteer for the afternoon with my sister Denise. I'll see if there are some photos that need taken. Do you have any fun weekend plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
