Dancing with MY Star ..................

Over the weekend I went to a working turn of the century farm (preserve) with DD and her family.
My 11 year old grandson and I were standing in the doorway to an old barn and for what ever the
reason began to dance ----- aren't spontaneous moments the very best? I know it is another
moment I shall always cherish.

City boys enjoying the chickens.And just a couple weeks ago I was able to spend time with my three "San Diego Grandsons" -- this has been a very special month.

Pooches Play Date

Niece Lisa's lab, Walter,(left - 5 months old) and our Polly (right - 2 years old) had a play date again today. Since the temperature outside was over 80 degrees, Lisa had the pool filled and the pooches had a ball. Here they are, still wet, with Walter guarding a small stick and Polly awaiting the chance to grab it and run. They had a great time- besides them being cool in the pool they managed to shower both Lisa and myself --- I smelled like wet puppy.

Mother's Day 2009

This Mother's Day I was in San Diego and had a wonderful 4 day vacation with my two terrific daughters and 3 of my seven grandsons. What a wonderful time.

Got to meet Lynn.............San Diego

How lucky to be able to meet in person my long time online friend, Lynn. We had lunch together and then, of course, had to check out a few shops --- here we are in a wonderful bead shop, LOST CITIES BEADS, in Old Town, San Diego, CA. Another super shop that also had some great beads was right next door, SHEPHERDESS BEADS. Shepherdess also had some wonderful yarns and great patterns. I indulged in both :-) If you are in San Diego it is well worth the trip to Old Town just to visit these two shops.

While in Old Town La Pinata Mexican Restaurant is a must.

They had a wonderful time and played very well together.
I know Polly is looking forward to another play time.
