Wow it is good to see you this morning. Come on in, get your coffee, and lets just sit and talk. We can "leap" from one thing to another. After all it is leap day. Leap day is special in our family, as our youngest grandchild was born on leap day.She is having her 5th birthday today. I don't know if being born on leap day had anything to do with it but she has been a delight. First of all, she is the only blonde in our family. All my other grands have dark hair and eyes, except Olivia. She has green eyes like her daddy and her granddaddy. She has always been
wise beyond her years. Even telling a boy Beth was dating once, he should date Amanda."With Beth, we call them the flavor of the month" she told him.She was 4 or 5 at the time. When she started kindergarten she cried everyday. (It didn't help matters, her daddy was the principal.) She called me one evening and told me she didn't cry that day. This went on for a week and I finally asked her what had happened. She told me,"My mommy had a little talk with me." I said."What did she say?" She said,and I quote,"My mommy told me I had to learn to be flexible." So, I said, "And what does flexible mean?" I heard a deep sigh on the other end and then,"In the beginning I had no idea what flexible meant,EITHER! So my mommy told me I had to learn to bend with the day." I could only think, my granddaughter thinks I am an idiot,that doesn't know what flexible meant.Anyway I want to wish her a happy birthday today.
Thanks for letting me share Olivia. It is raining here today, but warm.
I went outside and pulled weeds from around my rosemary and lavender.The yard looks horrible right now. I need to clean out around the day lillies as they are coming up. The bank is full of daffodils, but I didn't get a picture.
I have been tweaking again. Haven't taken any pictures. I will.
I am going to show you some of my favorite things. (I told you this post was a leaping one)
Well thanks for coming Through My Back Door where life is good and letting me "leap" around today.
PS: I am going to have some exciting news to share next post. company is coming Through My Back Door again.
PSS:Amanda has done exceptionally well this time. It is prayer. Please don't let up, as we have 2 more treatments
