It seems like quite a while since I've posted and it seems that I only had time to read a few blogs at a time and leave comments when ever I could squeeze them in.  Life has been very busy and Blog had to take a back seat for a while.

We're having rain today after a short spell of nice weather so I hope that the sun will return soon. The garden is growing but I still haven't taken even a single photo.

 I'm glad that my daughter send me some more photo of my grandson last night. He was 5 months old yesterday, hard to believe that 5 months has already slipped by like sand through the fingers.

I got the news that my new grandson is coming for a visit in August and I can't wait to hold him.

Dressed just like daddy.  Actually, I think that daddy dressed just like my grandson.  My grandson is very conscious of having his picture taken. His expression changes as soon as the camera takes his picture. He gets serious.

These feet are made for walking... pretty soon...

Smiling for the camera and making bubbles.

My daughter and her smiling little man.

Standing tall on a friend of the family.

Can you do this?

He was a bit concerned of the swing in the park and because he's still little, they put a pillow in the back.
He's getting a bit more comfortable with the swing and daddy is gently swinging him.

I wonder what he wants to say.

I'll try to have some time to blog next week.   Take care and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

I almost forgot to tell you that my second attempt at making my sourdough starter has failed. It could be my water.  We have a water softener and one of the bathroom tap is leaking and maybe there is a bit of iron that gets in the water. I'll have to try again. This is ridiculous. I'll use some bottled water next time. I've seen some different ways of making the starter on Youtube without yeast, just water and flour.  JB
