Nothing Makes Me More Tired...or More Happy

I have nothing "quilty" to share with you today; I had the great pleasure of keeping my three year old grandson ALL day. As I said in my title..."nothing makes me more tired or more happy." We dropped blueberries into yogurt and counted each one as they were eaten. We ran errands (where he "scored" a sticker and a sucker). WE made potato salad (Cade LOVES pickles and boiled eggs.) and Rice Krispy squares (He loves those too.). I set up the sprinkler and watched Cade run back and forth through the spray as he (and I) laughed like a lunatic. We read lots of books. (I hid three new ones in with the old ones; he had no trouble finding those right away.) We sang songs and laughed and laughed. Leave it to a child to bring things back into perspective. What a joy!

After such an "exciting" day, I may actually try to get a little machine quilting and/or hand stitching done tonight. ...yawn...

I'd love to have a grandchild--I only have one daughter who has been married for almost two years now. They were trying to get pregnant until she lost her teaching job due to budget cuts, now they're not so sure it would be a good time for a baby. Someday!!

You are absolutely right about grandkids. We should have had them first! LOL They are such a blessing.
