Two dear friends, who are also sisters, Margaret and Ruby, sent us this arrangement. It made us feel not only very special but very thankful. Since it was sent sight unseen, photos were taken and sent to both ladies with our thanks.
Our day was spent just being together, something we've heard can be difficult for some couples once they've retired. Luckily, we've never had that "problem." We took a "selfie" by our mill apt entrance, before going to for a walk, followed by a movie (Florence Foster Jenkins), then dinner at home accompanied by wine sipping and toasting — a perfect day.
On Saturday, we visited with grandson Bobby, granddaughter Ellie and their mom Shannon. The grandkids are starting a new school year this week and we delivered some supplies, as many other grandparents will be doing.
Bobby is entering 4th grade and he enjoys finding out how things work and putting things together.
Ellie is just starting her academic life and entering kindergarten. She is 5 going on 25.
Yes, they are growing up fast. Like ourselves, some long-time fellow bloggers can recall when these two were infants. We are happy they are both healthy and (usually) happy children.
We're especially Thankful for friends and family, including all of You.
