Stay At Home Grandma - Week 2

So far so good!

We attended Church, well kinda.
Mark and Kimmy had us down to watch our church service, 
that was streamed live.
We followed the rule of  limit of 10 people!

We were given a format to follow.
Announcements were announced.
Worship songs were sung.
Prayers were said.
Notes were taken.
The service ended with an intimate fellowship.

It felt good to know that we are in this together!

It's Spring and I started my vegetable garden by
planting seeds. 

Our 2nd bathroom has a great skylight!
So great, that the seeds are all ready sprouted!!!

It snowed today! Now what?? 
I guess they'll stay in the tub.

Look who spent the day with us.
It is always a good time when we have a 
grand kid or two come over.
Especially, when we are isolating.

He got right to work spraying hard surfaces!

Banjo is keeping us laughing and busy!
His Breeder sent him a surprise package,
 full of toys and treats.

Banjo doesn't look surprised.
More like.... scared.

But that didn't last long.

Speaking of Banjo...

Banjo found Isaac's lost sock under this chair!

This is Isaac's reaction when his mom told him
Banjo found his sock!

I'm  keeping busy sewing another Birthday present.
This time it's for Ila May.

She's turning 9 years old.
She loves to be in the kitchen cooking or baking!

I made her a special apron.

I had the material left over from when I made an apron for her mom.

I didn't have a pattern but I found a great tutorial on line.

And I didn't have to leave home for material or pattern!

I've always called myself a Stay-At-Home -Grandma.
And now it's literal.


"Serve the Lord with gladness. Come before Him with joyful singing."
Psalm 100:2

A Stay At Home Grandma

Tom and I have elected to stay home
 as much as possible.

We have keep up our reading the Bible, from start to finish.
Right now we are at the end of Psalms.
I find this book to be very pertinent! 

We have our Clorox Wipes going full time!
Vitamins for breakfast, eating a spoonful of chopped garlic before lunch and gargling salt water before bed.

But before we confined ourselves to home, we took Banjo to the Vet to get his Rabies shot.

All his shots are now completed!
Someone said that this picture of him, 
looks like he is smiling!

Social Distancing, a new term for me.

 I take Banjo for  walks several times a day.
I use this time for training.
He is learning to sit when I stop, without me telling him.
To walk next to me without pulling on the leash.
and to be polite to others we see.

But he doesn't understand Social Distancing, yet!

Mr. Pickles ( our neighbors dog) and Banjo
 just don't have it in them to keep their distance.

We don't confine ourselves completely to our home.
We take Banjo for practice Car Rides, for the future.

Banjo enjoys the window down.

I even think he fell asleep looking out the window.

The other day I organized and took an inventory 
of what we have on hand in our garage pantry.
While out in the garage with me, 
Banjo saw himself for the first time in the hubcap.

He curious and couldn't figure it out.
It was so funny, I just had to take a picture.

I'm keeping busy at home.
I brought out Susie, my sewing machine,

We have 5 birthdays coming up real soon!

Three little boys are getting
Paw Patrol Pillowcases!

Three presents down, two to go!

So, tell me, how you are doing at this time?
If you are staying home, what are you doing to keep busy?

I know I have read a lot more, especially about how to keep healthy.

I really like how others are sharing their information on recipes, thoughts, prayers, health, home school ideas and just just about anything else helpful.

Do you have any?


Matthew 6:25-34 

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Be Sate and Healthy !

One day at a time......

All Things Girly

We had two grand daughters 
spend the day with us.

(Giggles, Tea Parties, Dress-up and lipstick) 

I brought down, from the attic, 
my box of Peignoirs and negligees that I have collected.

Years ago, I would see these beautiful gowns, hanging in thrift stores.
I loved them!

When ever I saw one hanging on a rack, 
I would buy it.
I have to tell you, I have quite a collection!
Probably over twenty!
Most of them have robes 
but several are just really beautiful gowns.
Each is so Girly and fancy.

Who knew my grand daughters would fall in love with them, too!

That day our living room 
turn into the staging area.
Our bedroom into the changing room!

And then the fashion show started...

Giggles and laughter!

They tried them on, one by one.

They each found their favorite gown.

Then the accessories came out...
fans, jewelry, hankies, fake flowers and anything else that
could be added.

Yes, it was a Girly Day.

The day was topped off by going out to dinner and driving with the top down!

🌷    💄   

The next day I hung them in the sunshine
 to admire one more time before they went back 
into the box.

I wish I could show you ALL of them but it would be 
a picture overload! 

Ahhhhh.... to be Girly is a splendid thing!


"For I know the plans have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

Jeremiah 29:11

Coronavirous  Has Hit Close To Home

Tom and I had plans to visit our three grandchildren, who live in Seattle.
But sadly, we canceled our visit.

We have family that live in the neighborhood, 
where the outbreak of the virus, has taken lives.

Tom and I aren't fearful,
just cautious and are waiting to see how this will playing out. 
before we head over.

Huxley is now 7 months old.
He sits up and has 5 teeth.
All this happened since we last saw them.

Trey is 7 years old
Scarlett is 4 years old

Trey won 1st place in sparing and 3rd in Kara forms.

Scarlett loves to swim and can't wait
to get in the pool.

Scarlett has been writing me the cutest letters!

This is the before and after the 1st Haircut for Huxley!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 

In the meantime, we are pumping all kinds of good vitamins into our bodies.

We found that the chewable vitamin C is really easy to take.
Especially, when we are taking a lot of them.

We are pretty good about washing our hands, but we've
added hand sanitizer to our routine, followed by hand lotion.

Being disappointed about not visiting our family,
Tom and I jumped into our RV and headed out for a night.

Nobody was around us!

The weather was clear and somewhat warm.

Warm enough to take Banjo for some long walks.

It was his first time traveling.

Once Tom built the fire, we warmed up nicely.

The glow of the fire, makes such a great picture.
