Hello Dear Family,

I enjoyed a delightfully long visit with my son Brandon and my precious grandchildren Cooper and Penny.  It has only been since April since I have seen them last, but to Blake and I, it felt like forever!

Cooper ran into the house and into my arms with a big hug and kiss.  He was just as excited to see me as I was him.  Penny took a little longer.  She walked into my room, squatted down, and just stared at me for several minutes.  I could see in her beautiful eyes that she knew who I was, but was not quite sure.  After she gave me a huge smile, she let me pull her into my arms for a great big grandma hug.  She even put her little head down on my shoulder for a sweet Penny snuggle.

These two children are the most brilliant little spirits I have ever met, truly, they are.  I could sit and listen to Cooper talk for hours.  He is a genius!  Little miss Penny can command a room with her bright blue eyes, and her heart-melting smile.  Oh my goodness she is such a sweet little love bug, she truly is.  At one point I said to Penny, "Come here my little sweetheart" and Cooper crawled on to my lap and said, "Penny is not your little sweetheart grandma, I am."  Awwwww.  *love*

Our evening was just about winding down, when uncle Garrett walked through the door.  He was so excited to see Cooper and Penny.  Even though he had been working hard all day, he could not wait to have some playtime with his nephew and niece.  He and Cooper enjoyed a fun, live, game of Pokemon.  Cooper called out all these fantastic names of his Pokemons, while Garrett named his Pokemon, "Parmesan Cheese" and they chased each other around the house.  LOL, only uncle Garrett could think up a name that hilarious.

We truly enjoyed our visit.  I loved watching my son Brandon being the most amazing father on the planet. He truly is wonderful.  Amber stopped by for her dinner break as well, and it was great getting to catch up with her as well.  She looked beautiful as always.  Towards the end of the evening, uncle Casey came home, and little Penny was happy to see uncle Casey too.

Life has been a little challenging from me since April.  I have not been myself at all, and my health has been a challenge.  Having all my family here with me was the boost I needed.  Thank you God for my wonderful family, and thank you Garrett, Brandon, Amber, Casey, Blake, Cooper and Penny for being the best family a mama could ever hope for.  I love you all. :)

Hello Dear Family,

I am so excited, we did not hit 100°f today!  The forecast for the coming week looks much improved as well, as it slowly creeps away from the continuous heat that he been upon us for weeks now.  It is still pretty warm, but with only 9% humidity, I am not going to complain.  We had a bit of a breeze today too, so the smoke has been blown out of the valley for a little while.  The skies were clear today.  Yay!


I did wake up feeling a little bit like it was 1995.  That was the year I first experienced the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It was pretty brutal.  I am feeling a bit better this evening after my Enbrel injection though, so I think I will be okay.  This past week was pretty intense at times, and for me, emotional flare ups cause my RA to flare up.  After almost 20 years of dealing with this disease, I know better than to let my emotions flare.  Unfortunately when one is also dealing with the swinging hormones of perimenopause...good luck keeping your emotions in check.  lol  Life is much more peaceful now, and everything is as it should be. Thank you God.  :)

We are looking forward to a lovely weekend.

Hope your weekend is great planet!

Until next time...

Hello Dear Family,

Another reason I hate the summertime here in Idaho, is fire season.  I went outside to take my photos today, and the sky looks terrible.  We are safe from any fires right now, so no worries about that, but there is not a patch of blue sky to be found.  Thoughts and prayers to all the brave fire fighters working on these fires.

Until next time...

Hello Dear Family,

Happy Wednesday planet!

Today was a great day in my little world.  Casey got off work this morning, and decided to spend the day at home.  I helped him update his resume, and he enjoyed a much needed chill day with the family.  This evening he helped big brother Garrett work on his truck.  I love my boys so much!

Blake spent the day being the mischievous little turkey he always is, and I love it.  Don't get me wrong, he drives me crazy, but he makes me laugh too.  "Oh Blake, what would life be without you?"

As for me, mama is very happy today!  :)

Hope your day was a good one.

Until next time...
