"Gatherings create Moments which make Memories"

A friend of ours spoke at his father-in-law's funeral last week.

That simple sentence he spoke about says volumes.
When we look back on the moments of a gathering. 
They become a memory.

Thankful for the

Lifelong Friend!

I met my good friend *Mother T* when we were nine years old. 

That's been a few years.

We live a couple of hours apart now, 
but boy,do I love to see her!

She is GiGi and I am Nonny.  

It's a role we embrace.

It's a reward for the aged.
We played recently with our *littles* at Chick Fil A.

I love you friend.

Here's to lots of  dates with our *littles*.

Sweet Little Hands

One of these sweet little hands got burned Saturday.

She touched a hot grill.
Her little hand is going to be fine.

When it is, I'll be buying her another big cookie.

'Cause that's what a Nonny does.

It's Sunday night already! Where does the weekend go?

Saturday morning hubs and I left out bright and early. We drove east three hours to the beach.

It's not what you think though.

We went to look at THIS:
Can you say exciting?


But for hubs I guess it was. He needs it for work. He took it for a spin and offered to let me ride. 

I politely declined.

When we returned home late Saturday afternoon, I attended a coupon class. I don't do coupons. I should. I really should. But we go to Costco for most things and I just , well, I just don't coupon. My friend, Renee', invited me. So, I went. This is what I have to say about it: 

That's ME on the left, and my friend Renee' on the right!

Today, hubs had to work the concession stand for the Legion ball games. All day. So, I went to see the new movie "Babies". It was interesting. I couldn't wait to see it. I even went alone. I don't know about YOU, but I've never been to a movie alone. It was fine, but I was a little disappointed in the movie. I mean, I KNEW the babies couldn't talk. But I thought they might have a narrator or something. There were no words spoken at all. (Well maybe a babble or two to the babies but that's it). 

If you see it, let me know what you think.

That's my weekend. How was YOURS?

 Granddaughter #2 (with the cutest baby legs!)

Then, two of my precious nieces had their preschool program:

It was a GOOD day!

Have YOU had any GOOD days lately?

My Gardenia Bush

I pass right by my Gardenia bush every time I go in and out of my house.

It's right by my back door and the fragrance is AMAZING!

If you click on the picture and look close, you'll see there are TONS of blooms about to burst open.

When I fill a bowl full of them and sit it in my kitchen, the whole kitchen smells great!

Do YOU have a favorite bush?

My Favorite Word

I love words. Especially the written word.

I find that I use certain words over and over.

But,my favorite word is


When my baby sister was little she ended all her prayers with 

"In Jesus' precious name, Amen."

I taught all my children to pray that way. 

HIS name IS precious.

I know my daughter prays that way. And so does her husband. 

I'm not sure about my boys and their wives.

What is your favorite word?

And WHY?

And while we are on PRECIOUS.......

Golf. It's My Life.

The Hubs and the oldest son played in a tourney yesterday.

Hubs is recovering from knee surgery, so he can only putt.

So, the son takes up his slack.

It's a blessing that they play together.

Golf. Yeh, it's my life.

And I don't even play.

*edited to add: These pics were not taken yesterday. Hubs has lost 50 pounds since this pic. He wanted you to know.
