Been Gone for A Bit

I know I haven't been posting much. Went through a bit of a bad spell and still on the tail end of it. Back in July of last year I went to a doctor's appointment and he said "that's it Cathie, you can't keep up at this rate. You aren't going back to work" So now when I have my bad days instead of killing myself working 8 hours then trying to do anything to the house I try and gather my strength to get better. Sometimes it takes longer than others.

I thought I'd tell the story about why I say to have a grandmalicious day. My granddaughter was about 3 or 4 and already used to being in the kitchen with me, helping out. She loved to wash the chicken before I put it in the oven and to watch it get golden brown through the window. One day I let her wash the chicken I put it in the oven and she helped check it. She picked just when it was ready to come out of the oven. My husband was working a later shift and she was gone by the time he ate dinner. He called her up to tell her that the chicken she'd "made" was the BEST in the world. She asked to talk to me. When I got on the line she excitedly said. "Grandpa says the chicken is the Best in the world grandma That's ALMOST as good as yours!!" I answered "almost?" and she said " yes grandma you make everything grandmalicious, when I'm with you I have a grandmalicious day!" So now I wish you a grandmalicious day, full of good things and people you love.

Have a grandmalicious day!!

Just Checking In

Well I've been spending my week looking for that elusive craft project. I've got to start my Christmas crafting now or Christmas will be here and I'll be rushing. Just like last year LOL...

I've been searching for some Plastic Canvas patterns for play/pretend food. I can't find any of course. The one pattern I latched on to on E-bay slipped thru my fingers when I came back from the doc's feeling worse then I left and laid down for a few minutes and woke up 3 hours later. Doesn't that just take the cake.

If any of you out there know of or have such a pattern I'd be pleased to find any *grins*.

Other than the weather changing and changing back making me hurt like the dickens nothing much else to report. I'm still entering those lovely sweeps and will keep you all up to date on them here and on Twitter.

One of the Best Dolls Ever

I've always wanted to win one of these dolls ever since I first learned of them. They are beautiful and the type of "role models" I like for my granddaughter.
Now I and anyone who would like one have a chance to win one over at Simply Moms.
You can even choose which doll you want.
If you don't have anyone to give the doll to you can just tell her to send it to me. lol.

Someone Might Care

Not sure anyone will care about the musings of a Grandma. Thought I would try anyway. Not even sure how this will all go but it may keep me out of trouble. Then again if there is trouble to find I usually find it.....

Most blogs I see and read are from women who are just starting there families and/or have young children. I on the other hand have raised my child and am now dealing with grandchildren and life on the downside of life's hill.
There are a lot of us and maybe they will post here and relate to the thoughts of this sweeping, reading, crafting Grandma.

We'll see.
