As my title suggest, it's raining today so it's a great day to take life a little easier. I find that summer is slipping away so very fast. Yesterday was a very busy day and I  am glad that I don't have to work outside today so I'll knit a little on my pink scarf. It measures 21 1/2 inches so far. I can only knit a little at a time and I stop when my shoulder starts to hurt.
I just wanted to share a few photos of my little grandkids that my daughter Christine sent me a few weeks ago.

There's my daughter Christine and her happy boys, Daniel and James.

Daniel in his ExerSaucer posing for Daddy. I think that I'll need to eat lots spinach to lift up that boy when he comes for a visit soon. Look at the size of that leg...

Nothing as sweet as a baby's smile to make your day feel so special.

This cute and cuddly boy is watching a video on mom's laptop with his favorite dog..

Red lips doesn't necessary mean that James ate something that  tasted very good. Mama's lips are smiling and is going to tell us why James has red lips.

I can detect a red dabber mark on James left hand  and I think that he dabbed his lips, lol...
The fish lips looks good on mama don't you think? Maybe James could use the dabber once more while mom's lips are pursed.

Now I wonder what is going on behind this closed door..... a sneak peek will tell...

James is all tuckered out from lots of running and just being a little boy. Sweet dreams James.

Have a happy and safe week everyone and remember to take time for a little rest today.

    Glad you're having a day of respite. It's pouring down rain here ~ severe thunderstorm watch until 9pm ~

    It's relaxing to me as long as I can stay in. I just enjoy looking at the rain and the green trees swaying ... not too much swaying please...

    We actually had more rain here today, too. The garden is very wet! Perhaps we will have no rain on Thursday or Friday, but it is predicted to return on Saturday and Sunday. Oh - a chance of rain for tomorrow, too. Yes, that "tap in the sky" needs to be turned off.:-)
