Rainbow Fest

DSC_0018

It’s been quite a while since Miss Chompy has come downstairs to my realm and said, “Grammy, let’s do our nails!” Which means of course that she already has the enormous bag of ancient polishes from when her mom was a teen. Some of the colors are old and sticky, but there are a surprising few that still work. The little girlie can never ever decide which color is her absolute favorite so most often–she will opt for the Rainbow Fest–or one of all the good ones.

I hope she’ll ask me to paint her nails for another few decades yet. Hanging out with this little muffin never gets old, and with or without the polish she colors our world just right.

My Little Helper

The House

While I was looking at the real estate For Sale site the other day, Miss Chompy came in and asked what I was doing. I said, I’m looking for a house that I can live in someday.

Pointing to the home on the computer screen, she said, “That one’s nice. You should buy it.”

I said, “Yeah, but I have to save up a ton of money first. Even small houses cost a lot.”

She got all excited and ran out of the room calling back, “Don’t worry, Grammy. I’ll help you!”

The sweetheart came back with the penny jar and this sign.

Beggar

Ummmm….

thanks, honey.

I think.

Never a creature so loved.

How I’ll miss those dear little paws.

Good bye my sweet, sweet Beany.

Odd Little Storm

So, it’s April, and we have our green leaves and budding trees and flowers popping up all over the place and POOF!

We get this.

At first we thought that it was just a flukey little fly-by storm…

but it just kept stopping and starting, over and over…

for two days!

I kept thinking, “Oh, sure. NOW it snows.” Just when we’ve given up on any winter and started wearing flip flops.

Don’t get me wrong–our poor mountains can use the snow pack–we’ll take it. But we watched for snow. We begged for snow. We prayed for snow…3 months ago.

Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor.

Sincerely.

My sweet Beany has not been feeling so good for the last few days.

You know, sleeping a lot.

Now and then he will take a long drink of water, but not too much in the way of actual food.

Worries me.

I’m beginning to wonder if he remembers our deal.

Do you remember Beany?

I love you with all my might…

and you just live forever.

I think that’s fair.
