About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of three. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and will have been married for 57 years this February.

It's been ages since I blogged  because I lost my MOJO.  I've turned the house upside down looking for it. I found something that looks like it, but I'm not sure if it'll stay around for a while. I hope so.

This month was so hot and humid, almost unbearable. I had lots of visit and loved every minutes of it. My little grandson, James, has grown and walks and run and is starting to talk.  What fun he was to have around. I've been absolutely lazy about yard work and cooking meals. After working at the farm in the heat and humidity, I only did the necessary. Everyone pitched in and we never went hungry.

My daughter  flew in from Glasgow Scotland. She arrived on August 1st and left on the 18 and my other daughter from Ottawa, her husband and James also came for two weeks.  They visited PEI and brought me some lobster again to spoil me. My daughter from Scotland brought me some pearl earrings. They all spent some time at the cottage by the lake.

 I stayed home and cared for a new born calf.  I had another one today by the way.

My other grown children and grandkids  also visited so the house had a nice buzz about.  It's amazing how fast the time went.

I had lots brothers and sisters in law also visiting as we had to attend my cousin Vince's funeral. He died of cancer at 45 and sadly left a lovely family behind.

I want to share some pictures of  a crowd that showed up just before lunch as they work in my daughter's  garden behind our hedge and I had two large casseroles and my daughter cooked a big pot of fresh green beans and theres was lots of food for everyone. They had no intention of staying for lunch but I assured them that they was enough food. Not a fancy table but good food.

 I took another picture just for the cute smile.

James and his dad dressed as Superman.

How about this for charm?

 James love to play the piano.

Yeah, even though this old bare foot grandma has some wee muscles on her biceps she can still use some help right now... I'm a calf wrangler... what can I say....

What a good sport getting his hair rinsed.

Where did the water go? The water was coming out but now it's not.

I'm not sure who my grandson is supposed to be but he looks like he's having a great time pretending to be someone with great strength.

A good thing that he's at the lake.

James having a relaxing time at the lake. Taking it easy with daddy...

Sorry about so many photos but I want the family to see them. Thanks for dropping by and I hope that  you still remember me. The weather was just beautiful today and the humidity has gone for now. I hope the same for you.      JB
