Yesterday getting out of the house helped in many ways. Not saying that it was all good, but while these pictures were taken it was pretty amazing.
Now these pictures make Mabel's hair look all fluffy. I sent one to her aunt in Colorado. She replied,
" Put her on a plane, please."
This is at the corner of their driveway. The steep part starts right there.
Miss Mabel. Oh and by the way she has been getting purple at school. That's the highest. Her brother said in the car yesterday that he was well behaved at school (true) but that Mabel was "unbehaved"
Here she is singing and swinging. There is a house right to the side of her that I would love to see the inside. I think it's a newer home and is somewhat a saltbox style.
Just enjoying God's beauty.
If you look closely you can see the deer. See the one behind the tree looking at me.
The old castle next door.
The side of Mabel's house. I love there screened in porch. See the pillars. It looks a lot like ours in the front.
Mabel wants me to come to her school for her Halloween party. She always wants me to come to their house when all the families and the kids come before trick or treat and after. They are in town and parking will be hard to find. They will all walk from there.
Mabel never left my side the whole time I was with her. She missed me and I missed her. That girl has my heart as the others do as well.
I stopped to see my 11 year old granddaughter yesterday for a few minutes. She wasn't feeling well. She is still a little girl and not ready to be a pre teen. She said, "Grammy, what are you dressing up as this year." Isn't that a hoot.
The day ended by Hubby trying to cheer me up at our favorite Mexican place in the village. We totally avoided the sad issues. Just knowing he knows that just being together is enough.
(See, I didn't make you sad this time)
