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!

They were here, now they're gone...
It was great to have the North Carolina kids up north for a few days. It gave us a chance to enjoy little Emmy, daughter April and her hubs, Keith. Uncle Josh always reads Em a story. Of course it was a book about corgis! I always try to have a new one on hand for when we get together.
Emmy likes to help her mommy. Cook, clean, set the table, doesn't matter, she just likes to help. She dusted the television screen while here, and her Grammy appreciated it very much! (Note the cheerleader outfit she has on!) She's such a hoot...she kept us laughing.
Emmy right now is very much into stickers. These happened to be Thomas the Train stickers, a book I gave her during our last visit to NC, in March. Her GG (great-gran), both corgis and Grammy (me) all sported many stickers over the past few days.
She spent the night here last night and slept in the big bed with her Grammy. She's a bed hog...just like her Grammy! We held hands, rubbed feet, and whispered in the dark. Oh my...I miss her already.
Will miss my big girl too. We never have enough time to share all the talks and activities that we want to. Oh well, more reason to start planning a trip south soon, to go see my girls!
