My grandson is 16 and a strong and healthy boy. He helped me so much by getting my yard ready for spring. It took three hours of steady work in which he never stopped and did an extremely complex job. I can't thank him enough.
|The end of the clean up. I should have counted the bags of |
debris he ended up pitching in the trash. All I know
is I had a of a time rolling the trash barrel to the curb
for pick up.
B and his family spent time with his sisters and their families. too. The most important thing was going to Virginia Beach to check out the ocean front. I also can't forget the trip to Krispy Kreme donut shop that just opened in my area. They happen to hit the shop when the donuts were being made which impressed B's 10 year old daughter.

They brought me home some taffy from Forbes.
B and I went to the meat store and he bought steaks to make a nice steak dinner with. He's a chef who specializes in meats. Needless to say dinner was fabulous with a side of fresh green beans.
B also took the time to hook up all of the wifi elements in the house. My printer now works and I can access the chrome cast from my cell phone. About the cell phone. I had one that minutes were put on every three months. I messed that up - big time. I don't even know how. B bought me a phone and put me on his plan and downloaded a coupon app for me. He tried showing me how to use it, but at this point, I'm having a hard time knowing how to answer it. I've vowed to overcome the anxiety associated with this small device by taking small steps in learning so I don't throw it through a window. It will not beat me!
Before they left they cleaned up the upstairs and even washed the sheets and replaced them on the beds. I miss them already.
Friday night my 5 year old grandson spent the night with me. He asked if he could and I was surprised, but it was by his request. We went out to dinner with his aunt and cousins, he played in the garden dirt - finding two worms - and chalked a picture on the garage floor for me. He asked if he could and I could see no reason not to so I have a flower on the garage floor.
|Not everyone has a flower on their garage floor. But,|
He slept well in the middle of the bed and Marley and I slept in the upper left corner. The highlight of the visit for me was when he sat up in bed and said, "La la, I love you." My heart skipped a beat in the same way it did when my husband first spoke those words to me when we were so very young.
Stay safe. Angie
