The Roses Get Clipped and Other Doings

Hey, Y'all,
Yesterday morning was a quiet one to begin with. Carol went out to do a pool inspection, and by the time she returned the house was up and running...well, not the house literally, but the occupants. We had all had breakfast and then she, Whitney (Carol's daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter in law) and I went to the church with three boxes of flowers, (white long-stemmed roses and purple carnations) to clip them and put them in cold water. Later, we came home and had lunch (very important, you know).

Later in the day, we just kind of hung around the house and I spent some fun time with the great grands, playing a game with them, and just generally having a great time. Of course, I had to check out my blog and keep in touch with you friends out in Blogland.

Last evening, all the young women of the Bennett family and the bride and her girl friends went to the bride's bachelorette dinner, and the guys went to the bachelor's dinner. Carol and I got to babysit Julia and Andrew's 18-month old daughter, Alyssa (our wonderful pleasure!) and spent the evening playing with her. Carol baked a store bought pizza and we three had salad, pizza and milk. Yum! I spent some time drawing pictures for Alyssa and she appreciating them and coloring on a piece of paper. I drew a dog, which she called "Woof! Woof! Her family has Akita dogs.

About 9:30, the little Bennetts came home with their mom and a little later their dad, Daniel, came home. The little ones had been with Whitney's mom and dad, who live just around the corner and down the block from Carol and Daryl. That makes it easy for visiting when Dan and Whit come home from Illinois to visit.

This morning we had fresh scones for breakfast, made by a lady who has recently opened a bakery and they were wonderful! I had never had scones before, but intend to bake some in the near future. We Scots certainly invented something good when we invented them, didn't we? My family on my dad's side were Campbells, you know.

Later this morning, the girls (me included - isn't it nice that I can still classify myself with the girls? ha) are going to decorate the church for the wedding. I am taking a lot of pictures!
Those will come to you next week after I get back home.

Well that is about it for right now. I am having a grand time, thank you very much! It couldn't be better unless I could have had Gramps here with me to enjoy it. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends out in Blogland. Bye for now. More later.

Hi Grammy, So glad you are having a good time. I saw on facebook where Gramps fell and broke his hip. I am so sorry to hear that and hope he is doing o.k. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are worried about him. Love and hugs.
