Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

The little rocker that Em is sitting in should be called the "generational rocker". It's from the 1950's. My brothers and I sat in it to watch the I Love Lucy shows that weren't reruns. Then, my kids, now both in their 30's, grew up watching Johnny Quest, and the Brady Bunch, when they were kidlets.
Now, little Emmy, and possible sibs down the road will share in rocking in that little wooden chair.
Emmy and Grammy, and Uncle Josh is reading to his much loved lil' Em.

The boys, Jim and Jake, headed west on Saturday, May 3rd, to Woodland Park, Colorado, to visit his Mom over Mother's Day. Josh, Addie and I went south on May 7th to visit April and Keith in Chapel Hill, and to see lil' Emmy. It worked out great to be there for both April's 32nd birthday, and Mother's Day.
Jim and his Mom went up Pike's Peak on the Cog Railroad, and had the customary treat of hot chocolate and doughnuts up mountain top.

Jim has been completing his Mother's "honey do" list while in Colorado, not realizing that his wife has one waiting for him at home as well!
In North Carolina, April treated me to an afternoon tea at The Pineapple Tea Room, in the quaint village of Apex for Mother's Day. The bite-sized treats were exquisite, and the individual pots of tea wrapped in individual cozies; a pure delight to partake. Talk about feeling very girlie! Website:PineappleTeaRoom We walked through little shops on a sunny Saturday and had a great time.
Emmy is walking and talking up a storm, and her smile is extremely contagious! Josh tried out Asian food for the first time at Ming Garden, and found he loves it! Keith grilled out on Sunday in between the downpours. Josh and I drove straight through on the way home and were glad to sleep in our own beds after the 14 hour trip back to Indiana. Jim and I both took advantage to listen to Christina's soothing CD while driving the long stretches of road.
