Another rainy day...

It feels like we had to drive all the way down to Florida just to enjoy a bit of sun.  We sure have not seen much of its shiny face between the trip back in April and now.  An old Vermontism: "Hope it don't hurt the rhubarb."  Let me tell ya, my rhubarb has turned into a mutant monster plant.  I'm afraid to go near it.

My son and I are off to visit my daughter and the grand children.  We are attempting to pull off a fast one by bringing Kristen back for a little-brother-less week with Grandma.  He will get his turn when she goes to day camp.  We have a shopping trip planned--that's her birthday present--and I have sewing and craft projects lined up.  We'll see how this experiment goes.

My daughter did want assurance that I would still take the two together on occasion.  That will be her birthday present this year.
Part of my birthday present--downtown Savannah.
If I remember correctly, this was once the Coca Cola plant.

  1. I like the visit with one at a time. Makes for a nicer time being able to focus on one food preference and one activity interest at a time.

  2. Yes, we in the NE, are beginning *to-mold-around-the-edges*... And in west TX, they are desperate for rain. -sigh-

    Good birthday present for daughter, a childless weekend. :-)))))))))))))

  3. My twin granddaughters always arrive as a pair. I suspect they prefer it that way, since they specify sharing a bedroom at our house rather than having separate spaces. They're arriving tomorrow. We have garden activities planned and hope that one of them will decide she'd rather read while the other helps.

  4. Seems the summer holidays are here. Have fun and hope the sun comes out. We've had similar weather.

  5. One on one is always special. Everyone enjoys being the center of attention.
    Careful of the rhubarb. When my Malabar Spinach gets going, I am a little afraid of it also.

  6. It's nice for them to be on their own sometimes, both for them and for you.

  7. I think the one on one time is a great idea. Brothers and sisters sometimes have to accept that they can't do everything together. Enjoy the time with your granddaughter!

  8. I've found that when I have two or more of my grandchildren together, they tend to play with each other instead of with me! *pout* So I think one on one is great!

  9. Sounds like there are and will be a lot of happy birthdays.

  10. Hi Olga, So...I guess there won't be any rhubarb pie anytime soon? We sometimes take our older Grands on separate "girl" and "boy" play dates - (I take the girls individually - Pop Pop the boys). They like the undivided attention. However, when they sleep over, they like to be together.
