Having Fun With Grammy

Grammy is watching the grandchildren today. It is a cloudy, cold, rainy day so she decided to find something different for them to do. She suggested they play beauty salon and the kids were all for it. Of course, they wanted to fix grammy's hair too. So while she rolled up her granddaughters hair, granddaughter did her best to roll up grammy's hair too. Grandson could have a play haircut and he thought that was fun. You just have to use a little imagination to entertain the little ones. They will remember the special times they spent with their grammy.

Playground Equipment

WOW! I have just got to say that playground has come a long way since I was a child. It is so well made now and safe. I find that playground equipment is so colorful and makes such a delightful playground for children to play. The Merry-Go-Round of my day is now a Merry-Go-Cycle and what fun and much safer than those we played on. I notice almost all of the parks in our town have been upgraded to much more safe and colorful fun equipment. The schools, as well, are doing the same and my granddaughters have colorful, safe equipment at their homes for my great grandchildren to play on. I am really happy to see a company doing all it can to make playground equipment not only lots of fun but safe as well.

Church Greeters

This is a 5 Sunday month so I was Greeter again today for the second time this month. Greeters are important, especially when new people come in. They enjoy seeing a smiling face greeting them. We also direct them to the sanctuary and restrooms, classrooms too. It is important to be on time too so you are there before the people start coming. I always like to be a bit early.

Raining Cats and Dogs

You know that old expression that it is raining cats and dogs? Well, that is about how hard it has rained all day. We really need the rain but it has also been so cold along with it. I guess it won't be warming up until the weekend. Next week looks like it will be in the 70's. Funny Spring weather this year after a mild winter.

Graduation Announcements

We are experiencing out first graduation event in our family. Since it is the first graduation, we are not sure of just what to do and what is expected of us. Of course the graduation announcements are of major importance. However, we have found that there is a great deal more to it than just sending out an announcement and planning a party. Arranging the proper place to have the party is very important. A great many friends of ours have cleaned out their garages, painted the inside and spent an enormous amount of time gathering together pictures of the graduate from Kindergarten thru 12th grade. This involves making up poster boards of all the pictures and preparing them for posting in the chosen place for the graduation party. In order to be sure we are doing all the right things, we got on the Internet and found a place with a wonderful variety of just the right graduation announcements we need. It is nice if they are gender specific, announcing your son's graduation or your daughter's graduation. Along with that you can add pictures to the graduation announcement and also whether it is high school or a college graduation. We had not thought about that angle. With a team of expert to help us put together just the right graduation announcement and invitation, we felt a lot less stressed out about the whole thing. In addition to those things, we had forgotten all about using the school colors and specifically from which field they were graduating, such as nursing or dental college. By doing it up right, the graduation announcements really become a wonderful keepsake in memory of this grand occasion. Their graduation is not only of great importance to us but to them, as well, and we want it to be something they will remember all their lives.

The thunderstorms and tornadoes are moving north. Oklahoma really got hit bad and continue to receive more storms and damage. I heard in one State that 4 semis were blown off the Interstate and those drivers all landed in the hospital. They were not sure if it was straight line winds or a tornado. Either way, it is bad. A small town of about 280 people was almost entirely wiped out in our State. They are talking more winds this afternoon and possible severe storms. I think this has been the worst year ever for tornadoes.

Welding Jackets

I think everyone will agree that welding is a very important and skilled job. It is important to have the proper equipment, as well as, welding jackets. It is quite easy to receive welding burns and it no fun. When shopping for such a jacket, you want to look for one that is flame retardant. By shopping the Internet, you are able to locate the best in welding jackets at very reasonable prices. With great savings, along with free shipping, you can more easily fit them into your budget and be safe while welding.

Lunch with My Brother

Since we have had such a nice winter, I have made it a habit to go on Tuesdays to see my brother. We then go out to lunch at Taco Johns. He has been going there for some time, however, I live in the next town and generally snowy winters keep me at home. But this year was a great winter with very little snow. After shopping yesterday, I met him at Taco Johns and we had a great lunch together and visit. They always have very good food and we both love Mexican of almost any kind.

AMT Models

Building model cars is a serious hobby for many people. In checking the Internet, I found good looking amt models. Of course, you need to find the best place to buy just what you want. It is also important to get models to work with that fit the proper age range. If you are perhaps wishing to start a child out putting together model cars, this would be very important. You do not want to discourage them right from the beginning by buying models that are too difficult for their age range. Most likely, another consideration is the selection and price of the models.

Easter Sunday

This was the most beautiful sunny day. We had rain yesterday which kind of put a damper on some of the early Easter egg hunts. We had an early Easter dinner on Saturday. The Mom's hid the eggs all over the house though and the great grandchildren had a ball finding them. Their Grammy brought out Easter baskets with little windmills, bunny masks and candy and they were delighted. Even the adults got something as well. I got a neat jar of jelly beans with a note attached explaining the colors, such as the red ones stood for the blood Jesus shed for us, etc. Also received a big chocolate candy bar with a cross on it. Very unique and special.

Yard Work

Now that my husband has passed away, my son-in-law has been helping me with yard work. He came over tonight and sprayed all around the house for bugs, spiders,etc. Then he spread the weed and feed over the lawn. That really works great to keep the dandelions down. Then he also spread some grass seed on places that took it hard this winter, probably because we didn't have the snow cover we usually have. The next project will be to spray waterproofing on the deck but that should wait till it is a nice calm and warmer day. It is sure good to have help for all the things my husband always did. My neighbor has mowed the lawn once already. It is usually late April or May before you have to mow.

Fun Weekend

My sister came to stay with me Friday afternoon. We went out to supper with 2 sister-in-laws and a brother-in law who were returning to Wisconsin after spending the winter in Texas. We went to Carlos O'Kellys and had a wonderful time, delicious Mexican food. Then my sister and I took a one day bus trip to MPLS to a passion play that was wonderful and they served a hot meal afterwards. That night we went to a new restaurant in my home town and tried out the food there. It was very good. Today we attended church and went out to a Wendys and had great sandwiches there. It was a beautiful day here today. It is 73 degrees. We have had the most wonderful winter and beautiful Spring now and everything is about a month ahead of schedule. My peony tulips are in full bloom, yellow and the red and deep red ones are about to bloom. The hyacinths are gorgeous and the lilacs have flowers starting on them. My neighbor came over and mowed the lawn while I was gone and brought me some delicious salad. I am blessed.
