Weeds and things

Life has so many ups and downs, and twists and turns. This summer so far for the most part has been wonderful. My little grandson is a total joy and I love the warmer weather and the gardening and being outside! I do love summer.

Over the weekend, Erik and I did a little shopping after seeing his youngest daughter off on a school trip to Cuba and later we were at a birthday party for 2 friends, one 60 yrs and the other 50 yrs.

Sunday had its challenges which leads me to the weeds…… I spent a good part of today pulling weeds and when I say a good part of the day I mean hours, awesome therapy for a mom who needs to pull some weeds from life and sort things out and carry on.  It was super hot today which made the job a bit more challenging but in a way a lot more rewarding. There really is something about weeding the garden that soothes me. I think all the weeds are dealt with for now…

3 of my girls knew how I was today and they all showed up and spent time with me. I am truly blessed and of course my eldest brought my little man 🙂

My little cowboy wearing his Canada Day Cowboy hat from a friend of his moms, his little Onesie  that says My Mommy’s Canadian Hero and his little John Deer Cowboy boots from him Mamie. He has a Onesie that says Made in Texas as you’ll also see.

We had a nice visit with Sarah’s Mother in law and her parents who came up from Texas for a little visit. It was so nice to meet Jerry’s  Mamie and Papa and to see Kathy again.  Sarah’s new family is so lovely that is makes it a little easier to let them move south….though I wonder how I’ll really feel when the time comes. My Mom and Dad are to the right of me, 4 generations happening in this picture.

I really love this picture, Jerry is held by his Great Grandmother, Mamie and Kathy Jerry’s Grammy is to the right. Do you think my little guy will grow up with a strong accent too?

and one last picture because how cute is he?? hopefully I’ll be back to my quilting soon, I just haven’t felt my creative self lately but maybe now that the weeds are pulled it will return!

Oh and I am still running and walking almost daily (almost 4 weeks now) I can really feel the difference it makes. I highly recommend getting out there….one step at a time!

    Hi Wendy – it’s me again -Helen in Switzerland – not Eric my webmaster (Have to work out how to get him out of here!!) Great to see you back Wendy and to ‘meet’ your wonderful family. I’m sure it won’t be easy when your daughter heads south – why on earth does she want to go to Texas – I’m SURE Canada must be so much nicer!!
    Glad that the running is still going well – I find I’m so much better balanced when I’m running a lot – the endorphins just keep on circulating and keeping me happy!
    Hope to see you back on the quilting jag soon!!

    Hang in there Wendy! I understand those days when pulling weeds can be very therapeutic. As they say, one is nearer God’s heart in a garden than any place else on Earth. I good place to go and commune and vent. Take lots of pics on your retreat. Can’t wait to hear your adventures!
