That’s life. For two weeks and one morning I was babysitting for my darling grandson, Nathan James. There were lots of times off, mornings when he was at playschool or music class, or at Kid’s Castle while I walked in the water channel at the Natatorium in Cuyahoga Falls. The first Thursday Mike took a day of vacation and was the Daddy Helper at Nathan’s preschool (an act which had other children asking their Daddies to come to school with them, too) and the second Thursday was Alice’s birthday and Mike took another vacation day and they toured Stan Hywet together while Nathan was in school and he came home with Miss Amy from Tiny Tillers. Nathan has grown up so much, not only physically but in his understanding and expressiveness. He can be very serious explaining things to me! I love it. He really is a dear little boy, and I’m not the tiniest bit prejudiced! No, no! Not me.
I also sent off two tea towels and pot holders to Becca Beattie in Australia for our swap. I hope she will like them. She sent me some wonderful towels and potholders with vintage little kid fabric in lovely blue and red on white color combinations. I haven’t photographed hers yet, but what I made should appear at the beginning of this post. I’m afraid my ability to center things properly needs lots of work! My friend Nancy has returned after four months in Venice, Florida and tomorrow we are going to Kent State to see some artwork another friend has in a gallery there, and also go the Kent Museum and lunch, too. I am really looking forward to hearing all about her daughter Siri’s wedding plans for the end of this month. The wedding will take place at Hale Farm, a lovely place to begin ones married life.
