Whirlwind Activity


Life has been crazy this summer.  My oldest daughter (April) and her family moved to New Mexico and have finally found a house.  I’ve learned a whole new level of respect for her — she is awesome.  This grandma is also thrilled with her three grandsons, who happen to be handsome, intelligent, talented and fun.

My youngest daughter (Carol) continues to make me smile in countless ways.  A few weeks ago she treated me to a trip to the hair salon, so I’m now a pretty old lady.  When it was her turn to have her tresses pampered, I couldn’t resist taking this picture.

Hair2She has threatened me with a slow and painful death if I let anyone see this, but I couldn’t resist!

Later today I’ll be tramping through the area to get to the now-wild peach trees.  The luscious fruits are not as big as the Frankenfruit in stores, but wow — they are so juicy and the peachy taste almost seems artificially accented.  I love the fact these peaches have no sprays, no commercials enhancements and from heirloom trees.  Then the fun of canning… It’s a good thing I live alone.  By the time I’m done, I’ll be a sweaty, stinky mess, but I’ll be smiling!
