Thursday:) Those Thrilling Adventures in Grandma-land

16 Dec

“Children are a great comfort in your old age, and they help you reach it faster, too.”– Lionel Kauffman


Well, I’ve been in Grandma-land for a dozen days now. I’ve come to realize that chasing little ones around is not for the faint of heart, nor for the old of heart. My hat goes off to all those grandparents who watch little ones all the time. Bless you!

Belle, the newly turned 6 year old asked me this evening at bedtime why my hair wasn’t gray, because I’m a grandma? I said, “Wait, by the time I leave, it will be!” Not really, I didn’t say that, but I thought it. 🤦‍♀️

This morning, everyone got off to school and work, and I waited for my dear friend Debbie to come for a visit. Debbie and I taught school together at Conrady Jr. High in the 70’s B.C. (Before Children) She taught English and I taught Art. A great team. She corrected my grammar, and I would draw pictures for her. Good times.

I forgot to take a selfie today, but this one is from a previous visit. Plus, I’m wearing the same ND jacket that I’ve worn for the past 20 years. 🍀

Guess where we went for lunch???

Yes, you can never get too much Portillo’s. Well, you can, but who’s counting?

Debbie was kind enough to travel over an hour from the city out to the burbs. We did a bunch of shopping after lunch, she brought a bunch of presents for the girls and some for me, and we had such a nice visit.I felt bad because she got stuck in traffic on the way home, and it took her an hour and a half home, with a dusting of snow. Now, that’s a good friend. Thanks Deb!
