Well, I took my daughter Amy and my two precious granddaughters to the airport early yesterday morning. I am so happy they came for a visit all the way from across the country in Ohio. On Saturday my daughter went out to spend the afternoon with her best friend from her childhood and the girls stayed with me. They were so sweet and quiet and spent time drawing and spending time together. They really are good sisters. I surreptitiously took a photo of them. :-)
Then they saw me and gave me a big smile. :-)
I just enjoyed having them here and snapped a few photos to record the moment. Here is Paige snuggled up in my Flowers in the Snow blanket.
Jenna drew this fantastic picture of Buddy and gifted it to me. I think she has a great future in the arts, she did an amazing job of drawing. I suggested she think of a career in graphic design. :-)
On Monday afternoon Kristi rushed in from outside and asked Travis to quickly come and help her save a hummingbird that was stuck up in the skylight of the back porch. He had to get a ladder and go up and rescue it - he handed it to Kristi and I went out to snap a photo. I was worried that it might not make it as it was sitting quietly in her hand. She put it's little beak up to the hummingbird feeder and it took a few sips and..... whoosh.. it flew away and was joined immediately by another bird who we assumed was it's mate! I was so happy that they saved the little thing!
And so.. it's been a really busy and hectic month. :-) I am meeting my friend Gracie for a crab salad for lunch and then we both head to the pool to resume our swimming routine. Tomorrow we're going on the Sternwheeler and taking our two grandsons with us. Life is busy, isn't it? I hope you're enjoying the summer - any fun plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
