Time's Up!

By the time you read this, I will have
shared, told, informed, reveled, or spoken to 
family, friends, neighbors 
and church members. 
 Now I'm sharing with all of you.
We are moving!

We are at the beginning 
of this new journey.
It's like telling someone you're pregnant.  Excitement; joy...
but lots of time, and work ahead.

I thought it would be fun or even helpful 
to bring you along so you could
help, share, advise, comfort,
support, pray and benefit,
from this process as we go through it.
(I will need all of the above from you)

A few things we have already decided are;
Tom is retiring!!
 It will be like we are newly weds!

We are moving to Idaho (no surprise).
We are not going to sell our cottage.
We are going to buy a home.
We will live close to our grandchildren!
We plan on traveling, a lot!
I will be closer to Didi,
my best friend, who also lives in Idaho.
We will be visiting back and forth back, to Seattle,
only in reverse.

Tom and I made our decision awhile ago.
 But before I shared with the world,
we needed to tell certain family members
 and friends in person,
(because a few of them read my blog).

The hardest part of moving will be missing
 our grandson, Trey!
 (tears flowing, QUICK, change the subject)

Do you believe in the power of prayer?
I do!!
The prayers of four, little grandchildren 
and their parents have been answered!

They have prayed, daily for us to move, 
ever since they left our driveway 2 1/2 years ago.
They were praying before Tom or I even thought of moving.
Bless you Kimmy and Mark!
We are excited beyond words!

And now...
about the Kleenex tissue holders.

I love my friends and it will be very hard to 
leave them for extended periods of times.
 I sewed each of them a personalized 
Kleenex holder.

So when we do say, "See you later",
 they will have tissues, at the ready.
 I wanted to give them a little something to remind them of me.

We are off to visit Idaho really, really soon,
to start the process of looking at homes!

Until I know more, stay tuned.

Graham Crackers and Milk

Tuesdays are a highlight of my week.
 I take care of our grandson, Trey.

When you are two years old, 
there are a lot of "firsts".

 I have had the pleasure of 
sharing a few of them with Trey.
This is one of them...

After nap is a special time.
He wakes up so cute and happy. 

There is always a snack waiting for him.
Today, it was graham crackers and milk.

I showed him the art of 
dunking a cracker in milk.

It has to be just long enough and not drop into the milk.
But enough to enjoy the milk, soaked cracker.

Trey mastered this in no time!

"Taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man who takes refuse in him."
Psalm 34:8

Music and Hats

Life has been really busy for me.
I just got back from visiting Idaho.

Several months ago Kimmy asked me if I would like to go to the
Idaho Philharmonic
with her, Lulu and Levi.
It was a special concert put on just for school aged children.

It was so much fun and very interesting.
The concert was geared towards kids
 and great introduction to all the instruments.

Music is a big part of their lives,
singing, music lessons and dancing.

Lulu has been taking violin lessons.
This just warms my heart!

And there is someone always singing or dancing.
Sometimes together, sometimes solo.


Now for the HATS.......

and more........


Oh, they have a new member in the family.


Snowball is their new baby bunny.
Lulu and Levi are in charge of taking care of
 her??? him???

Good-bye for now.

The End
