Fall Backyard

 Neighbors grapes hanging over our fence.
 They are really delicious,
even with the tiny seeds.

The irrigation water has been turned off.
It won't be long before the grass is brown
and the leaves are gone.

But look at my roses and
 Gaura Belleza
 (it attracts Hummingbirds!)


"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."
Psalm 119:105

Trip - Surprise Ending

Penny Lane Condo
Here is a quick tour, after we packed up all our stuff.
The stools at the couch and bed
are for our little dog, Lucy. 
We spent many hours around this table.
This portion of the trailer in what is
called a "bump out".


It's always hard to say good-by to loved ones.
The key is to have a plan in advance
 for coming back.
That way you have something
 to look forward to 
and the departing isn't tearful.
(that plan went out the door! 
I cried!)

Look at her!
I couldn't get enough Kisses planted on her forhead!
And this guy... look at that face!

I can't wait to see them soon.

I love them very much!


And now for the surprise ending.
( for Tom and me)

When we left Idaho,
we were happy, grandparents of 5,
with one on the way.

When we came back to Idaho,
we were the ecstatic, grandparents of 8.

Kimmy and Mark
are now Foster Parents of two
adorable little children.
A baby girl and a two year old boy.

Their identity is private so that's why the heart on their sweet faces.
Life has been so busy around here!
We have been helping out as much as
we can.

Well, life is back to our new normal.


Pictures of the 
Blood Moon eclipse,
from our backyard! 

"Let love be genuine, Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit. serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality."

Trip - Part 3

Trailer living is great but
three and a half weeks is
a bit much.

Tom and I made the best of 
the situation, in our true form.
We ended up having a lot of fun,
and on top of that,
 being with our grand kids. 

The Penny Lane Condo
doesn't have a washer and dryer.
So, here we are at the laundromat! 

Don't feel bad for us. There are several 
Starbucks within walking distance!
We didn't have TV or WiFi.
Again, don't feel sorry for us.

To watch our beloved Seahawks, we
dropped in at the local hotel.
We had front row seats.

This hotel also has free WiFi,
So, Tom would sip on a cup of coffee,
 while sitting in the lobby to 
catch up on his emails
My favorite place in the whole, wide world 
is Carillon Point, in Kirkland Washington.
It's a must for me, when we visit.
Especially, on such a beautiful day like the one we had.

My friends helped us out so much!
Anita let me read from her library.
(I stayed up really, late one night because
 I couldn't stop reading!)
Another friend had us over for dinner.

We brought along our bikes.
Pure joy to be riding on the bike paths
 and the streets
of Redmond, again.

Tom bought us tickets 
to an outdoor concert.
We didn't know if we would be going,
 but baby Scarlett arrived a day before the event.

Tom likes to arrive early and people watch, 
while reading the newspaper.
I on the other hand, enjoy the leisurely, 
four miles, bike ride on the trail.
I usually arrive just in time to enter into the venue.
(We saw Mark Knopfler)

Our last day in Redmond,
 we cleaned out our teen, tiny refrigerator.

Oh No!
What do we do for food?

We go have the world's best clam chowder!
Waterfront views, a beautiful sunset, and a big, hot,
 bowl of clam chowder.

The only thing better is.....

holding Scarlett and

being with Trey!!

to be continued...
(a surprise ending)


Got home in time to harvest
the rest of the tomatoes
and cucumbers -mmmm

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."
