She Always Makes Me Smile

My Jamie (youngest daughter) shared that Amelia (my youngest grandchild) always
takes her lunch.
From her childhood years she remembered that the lunches were pretty good.
Today is Friday
and it was suggested that Amelia might like to buy her lunch today ?
Amelia answered

"yeah on Friday they always have hamburgers
and they taste pretty good
except kind of expired."

I wish I had written down all the things through her young life
that she has said and have made me smile.
She always lifts my spirit....
Such a sense of humor, a way of sharing and her vocabulary
has been awesome from an early age.
Remember well
the times in her past
when I would be sharing
and over and over she would say
"grandma what does that mean?"

All those little annoying things from the trees
are falling everywhere
Walks, porch, deck and drive covered with them.
Sun finally shining
and what would I do without the blower I keep charged.
So some have been blown away
but others are rapidly falling.

The wedding activities continue for my oldest granddaughter "Jessica."
Special shower in New York - tomorrow.
Oh my so different from this one
who married at the alter with 10 in attendance about 58 years ago.
Wedding gifts could be counted on one hand and except for a small Formica
kitchen set, I still have them
and using them :)

Will say
quality lasts
if you take care of it....

Have a wonderful weekend...

I think that is a very original comment : ‘kind of expired’. She’d make a fine writer.

It looks like you are enjoying your family and their activities.

Yes, weddings aren’t what they used to be. I still have some of my mum’s wedding presents but I never got any for my own first wedding. A very sad affair, with a very sad marriage to follow.

Children most always "keep it simple", they do not complicate simplicity. I like that.

Love the photo of Amelia!

Happy weeks end E.

Friko, thank you for visiting and yes I think about Amelia writing.
But then
she plays the piano, guitar and wants another instrument that at the moment cannot remember what ?:) Takes gynastic lessons and has read continually since age 4. I want to stay on this planet to see what her future brings...
Sandy, thank you.

Good afternoon, Ernestine. I thoroughly enjoyed this visit. I believe Amelia is a very bright girl! Take care...

Ah yes--my wedding with exactly 10 in attendance was nearly 56 years ago. We had barely anything to start out with, but we were so happy (at the time.) Amelia is going to be a very smart woman!!! I can't afford the kind of weddings that people have nowadays. They usually marry at a later age than we did and they have lived on their own and already have all needed for a household. I just give my g'kids $100.00 which by today's standard's isn't even enough to buy groceries to start out!
