It's Fall 2020

I have so many reasons to be thankful
I am now married to Paul
Without a ball
We pull
A simple ceremony before the fall

And this weekend we borrowed my grandson
Who is now Paul's (also) grandson
Little Josiah gladly welcomed
Grandpa Paul without a question

He was such a delight
Easy to excite
With kisses, rides, bubble bath, and chocolate
But he got so active, we thought we had triplets
After that, Paul and I have decided
Milk chocolate drink? We should have skipped it
Because little grandson (and grandparents) 
Would be better without it


Oh after the wedding, we had small get-togethers
To celebrate after in good times and weather
We entertained friends, we barbequed together
And maintained a safe distance
As our health truly matters

My friends' son, so chatty 
Bragging about his stuff
He was showing me his airplane, scorpion, and other stuff

Oh, I have to tell you
I just got elected
As president-elect in a nursing organization
Where 11 years I invested
Nursing service volunteer work
Where I am needed

We did the inauguration via Zoom
When in the past we did this celebration
In a special destination
With a big production
But my team learned to do it online
And the organization turned out more than fine
We had a beautiful inauguration
The best for the time


To end this post, I had to look
For every autumn - ish picture from every recent nook

Here's my wedding cord
When we tied the knot,
A hotel shot where we booked,
From a casual shot, I took,
 the bouquet I used,
A coffee mug we chose
To go with our wedding cake
That's oh, so good

There's a shot from our last breakfast
Two days after the wedding
And the last pic was the time
To the altar, we were walking

That is all folks
Thanks for reading. 


Ten Things of Thankful

  1. Wow! Great job putting your TToT in poetry! Congratulations (again) on the wedding and your election. I understand what you mean about one child seeming to be three. LOL.

  2. Such an enjoyable TToT, and one you will enjoy reading again down the road a ways. I totally understand the impact that chocolate has on the behaviors of some children. I stopped buying any chocolate ice cream because of reactions one of our children had every time after eating it. . .rashes and behaviors.
    Congratulations again on your wedding, and now on being elected the new president of the nursing organization.

  3. I'm with Pat and Kristi, most excellent TToT in both substance and style.
    Very cool!

    Sometimes the busiest weeks are the best.
    Have a good week.

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
