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!

One batch gone...another one coming...
Well...July is a busy month...family wise. The North Carolina kids were here early in July, and the Florida kids will be here next week.
Lil' Emmy Lulu, our three year old bundle of fun, loves her 93-yr. old "GG" (Great Gram), her mommy, and to swing. She's a big kid now, and no longer the toddler. She's little Miss I-will-do-it, and fiercely opinionated, hard headed and determined. Hmmm, just like her mama was! I miss my daughter even before she leaves. She's such a calm, successful person. So, NOT, like her own mama.
Sigh...it was great while it lasted.
Why, do kids grow up, leave home, and have their own lives? HOW DARE THEY!!
Only kidding, well sorta, anyway.
Josh came over for the two "big feeds" and to visit with his little Em and his sis.
We caught this updated family photo before the gang took off.
So, next week is Jim's turn. His son and family, including the two grandsons...Jim's cousin, Jim's brother, uncle and wife will all be here for my MIL's 85th b-day party.
Lots of cooking and cleaning to be done! Oh my!
Summer, family gatherings, food, all seem to go together...aren't we lucky to experience such things? It's nice to cross paths for a few days, catch up, have mini-reunions.
The dogs will be grazing under tables I'm sure, trying to get samples and crumbs, and lick bare toes. Why do they do that, anyway?
Let's hope the "fam" will be understanding....cold noses, and warm tongues....could be not to every one's liking.
Oh well, this corgi cottage comes with a warning label. Beware, corgis inside, and they are very, very hungry!
