My heartbeats. He’s crazy about his sister and his niece and they adore him.
I live for moments like this.
Being a grandmother is everything people said it would be. I can’t spoil my grandbaby enough. I get to do all the loving without all the responsibility. It is thee best part of the second chapter of my life.
This summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with one of my most favorite bloggers (even though he gave up the ghost and no longer blogs) Reggie of Reggie’s Rantings.
This picture was actually our second time meeting. Reg is such an awesome guy. I’m glad that we were able to finally meet and that I can call him a friend. Blogging has introduced me to some pretty amazing people.
NavySeal and I are both back in school. I feel old walking across the campus. Not because I’m surrounded by young folks,but because you have to park your car so darn far away from the buildings that I’m tired before I get there. They need to have geriatric parking on campus.
I am so ready for this cool weather. My electric bill took a huge hit this summer. Summers in the deep south are murder. I don’t think I paid less than $400 a month the entire summer. My electric bill needed a break.
My neighbor’s gardener cut the roots to my morning glories and killed my entire living fence. Rat bastids. It was so pretty…butterflies would visit every morning. Now, I have to start her all over again.
My 92-year-old aunt is in hospice care. My dad had 9 siblings and only my aunt and my dad are left. It saddens me to think that when he crosses over, my family will have lost an entire generation and we will become the elders of the family. I can’t wrap my head around that.
In addition to decorating purses, I also have to decorate coconuts this year. My brother and a few of his friends are riding in Zulu so I have a few hundred (yes, a few hundred…like 900) coconuts to do. This is my first time decorating coconuts.
This year is almost over and I feel as if I’ve gotten nothing accomplished. I’m so ready for 2017.
I’m still a member of the Krewe of Nyx. I think Mardi Gras 2017 will be my last year as a member though. NavySeal and I want to ride in a Krewe together. We’re looking at the Krewe of Orpheus which rolls on Lundi Gras. It will be a totally new experience for me. And I get to ride with NavySeal…which is the best part of all.
Why is 10 lbs so hard to lose? I didn’t realize how much I love to eat til I decided to lose 10 pounds. The struggle is real.
What’s going on with you today?
Yeah, I’m walking around on crutches right now…sigh. This is definitely old people problems because I don’t think I would have had to get crutches if my ligaments were in their younger days.
How’d it happen? Cleaning up.Standing on one leg while on a chair. When I brought the leg down I missed the chair and jarred it on a cement petition. I actually felt the pain shoot up my leg. So now I’m out-of-commission…sorta. I’m supposed to be on bed rest, but there was no way I was missing Wicked on Tour. I managed to hobble around the theatre on one crutch…which I actually prefer. I’m gonna end up with a leg cast fooling around with both crutches. And I’m getting really creating when it comes to hiding the splint. Can’t wait to be off of these things though.
Grandbaby Creole(GBC) …I just blog named her 🙂 decided to show out for her birthday and took her first steps in front of everyone. It was awesome!
My 86-year-old dad was in his glory watching his great-granddaughter walk.
My kids just about grew up on this blog. Yellow Jacket was 13 when I began blogging and she’ll be 22 next month. I’m still trying to figure out where the time went.
I guess I’ll have some time to catch up on all of my blogging now…since I’m laid up for a minute. That’s a good thing because I miss blogging. Facebook saps all of the creative energy out of me because it’s so quick. With Facebook,Instagram and Twitter around,blogging has become the dinosaur of social media. I still like it though because it’s my space to get whatever I want to out of my head without having to deal with all of those “judgy-wudgies” on those other sites.
And I miss you guys. I don’t know if I’ll ever stop…I may slow up a bit, but I’m gonna hang around as long as possible. Besides, the grandbaby will give me all sorts of new stuff to blog about.
So, let’s catch up! I have so much to cover!
