The Past Couple of Days

 Yesterday we all went over to Brian and Katy and the girls new home being built.  They are all so excited to see it progress.. and we are excited to see where they will be raising their family.  I am hoping that there will lots of nice children in the neighborhood for them to play with.  The photo above is a playroom (sun room) that will house.. all of their toys and things, with hopefully a swing set outside the door.  They have been wanting one for awhile now.  Katy and Brian are good about taking them to the park and other places where they can do all of the outdoor things kids love to do.  I used to take Maddie to the park pretty often, but with two to watch...I just don't do that anymore.  They have been in a pre school setting a couple days a week also and they always take them outdoors.  Grandma does inside activities with them and occasionally takes them to the Zoo or Library.

This will be Kayla's room.  
She is really excited to have her own room.  
I think she wants to have a ballerina  decor.  


And here is Maddie's room.  
I think she said she wanted a rainbow room 
but has recently changed it to Angelena Ballerina..  (A character on TV)



Bob was able to take a swim and Waterpool and I were looking out the window.  I decided to try and take a photo.  Believe it or not...we haven't used the pool much this hot summer.  Bob has been swimming before work and in the evening.  I had the surgery and still can't swim for another week.


The kids always want to swim but have to have a willing adult or two to be with them.  I am not sure why we are all so busy...or whatever... to go out there...but it should be getting  more use than it is.  I remember loving hot days and loving to go out there and swim and float.  I would hang on to those memories and they would get me through the winter.  Well...it is only the 1st of July...so I should be getting out there again soon.  I think I may get my other eye operated on...but not until September, after I have completed the study they are doing on my right eye.


Not a very good photo of Waterpool watching through the window at Bob swimming.  I have asked my daughter to take some professional photos of Waterpool and of our son.  I haven't had a good picture of him for a long time.  I have lots of good ones of Katy and Brian and the girls.  I cherish them all.

The girls look so cute, and how nice that they are planning what they want their own rooms to be like. That waterpool looks so nice! You'd better start using it more before the cold weather arrives! Haha. I wish. It's been awful, the heat, I mean. I enjoyed the pictures, and at least Bob is getting some use out of your beautiful pool! Have a good week. Let's hope for some cooler weather and rain!

My parents built a house (had a house built - they didn't actually build it!) when I was around four. I remember it some, and apparently got to decide that my room would have RED carpet & PINK walls - ha!

When I was a teenager I got to redecorate & decided on two yellow walls, blue bedding, and a patchwork quilt looking wallpaper for the other two walls to tie it all together with the red carpet.

I love that the girls are able to help plan their new rooms out!

I hope you can get in the pool, soon. I do recall how much you love it and it doesn't seem fair you can't go in. Is that because of the study requirements?

Thanks Renie!

Dana...Wish I could see pictures of your room. Sounds far out like we used to say in the sixties. Ha

Sandy...Sure hope your elbow is getting better.


Rudee...The surgery rules are wear a patch at night one week. No bending or lifting. No getting the eye wet for a week. No swimming for two weeks. The study is for a medication they put in my eye for surgery and for after the surgery. I think I didn't help them much though because I didn't take it after surgery. It was for pain and I didn't have any.
