My son's wagon. He is now 27. He used to ride his teddy bear in the back of it in the little wagon that attaches. Some good news regarding my son. He had another ER trip. Some things were noted about his heart. He has started to take small walks everyday. He is trying to eat healthier. Remember he may be 27 but really functions like a teenager in most ways. It's hard to be healthy when you are on food stamps. His food stamps were reduced last month. I think it is fine to reduce the amount to those that could work. To reduce them on people that can't work and are disabled is different, I think. Of course, we help him as much as we can. I thought I would pass on that good info about the walking.
A blurry shot of the back yard. We haven't had a lot of color this year. In some places there will beautiful trees and in others the trees look dry and staying rather green. Since it has been cooler our feathered friends the buzzards are back. Their roost has been growing in numbers and encroaching on the neighbors. We aren't going to put up with it this year. So look out birdies we aren't kidding. (In case you don't remember.......we have around 200 turkey buzzards that roost in our trees for 3/4 months a year. We live on a 1/2 acre.)
This is what it looked like finished. Oh and the doll......I have been babysitting non-stop. Friday I had two hours off while Mabel went on a play date. I went to the auction house because they were having another doll auction. It was an online auction and in house as well. Very few people were there in person. It seems that the prices were so high. Many of the dolls were going for $400 plus. This was a Little Women Jo doll and it was only $30. I think it was the only one that low the time I was there. I wanted to see how much the Steiff animals went for but I couldn't stay that long. It looked like later they went for very low prices. They had a Steiff owl......sob. Sorry, I got sidetracked......back to the mason jar gift. I used material for the top of the jar and a ribbon around the jar to tie the tag on with.
This is just a shot of the church before the wedding started. I have more pictures and the story to tell you all later.
Yes, I have been busy babysitting.....being a Nanny and a Grammy. Schedules are crossing over and it is getting complicated. Hoping that they all get set schedules so this will work out.
It is cold here. 28 degrees this morning. And guess what, we didn't get snow. They had snow all around us but it skipped us.
Flag football and soccer is over for the season. I didn't get to go to either game this week-end. Grampy did this time. At Doodle's soccer game there was a lot of drama. Doodles friends from the coast came for the week-end. One of the children fell on the playground next to the soccer field. She ended up with a concussion. One of Goose's coaches is a doctor and he went to help. The squad was called as well. So Goose's dad ended up coaching. Grampy helped out with the kids. I haven't had an update since the evening it happened. Hoping that the little girl is doing okay.
I think I am going to take a little nap. The baby slept well last night from 7:30 p.m. til 6:30 a.m. BUT, Izzy the Yorkie got up four times last night. I think she has a tummy upset. Wonder what she ate while I was gone.
Anxiously awaiting the arrival of our owls from the swap. I can't wait to post pictures.
Toodles and have a good week.
