It was late last night when Logan finally drifted off to sleep. She started out on a fluffy pallet on the floor right beside my bed. In the course of the night, she was in bed between us and then Granddad was on the pallet on the floor right beside my side of the bed. That didn't last too long before he went to the den to sleep in the chair. Everytime I got up to go to the bathroom, I would have to get back in bed on the opposite side because Logan would automatically roll over into my spot. Suffice it to say that none of us got much sleep last night. I felt sure she would sleep well into the morning but around 8:00 she was whispering in my ear, "MeeMaw, the sun is UP!"
We had coffee and Bible reading in the den and I finally and successfully put a couple of coloring games on my iPads.
Breakfast was cereal ( Faith's choice when she was here earlier this week) out on the deck.
This deck, which is outside the kitchen wall, faces west. It's a nice place to be in the mornings until around 12:00-12:30.
We took advantage of the shade and did some arts and crafts out there this morning.
Logan is pointing to the picture of Granddad she had painted!
This was a combination of stencil and free form art.
The one on the far left is a 'calendar.' Logan said, "This is my very first calendar to paint!"
The third from the left is the painting of Granddad. Can you see the similarities!! ??
I gave a little more instruction on the next two and the last one on the right was my project.
My main accoplishment today was organinzing all that craft paint.
I have an entire drawer. It was annoying to open a bottle and it be all dried up so I cleaned and dumped and sorted this evening.
Only two more drawers left in my craft dresser to sort so that will be my weekend project.
We went in to make lunch just as the shade was starting to disappear.
I have black out lining on the curtains on the kitchen French doors to keep that sun from heating the house up!

Like mother/MeeMaw - like daughter/granddaughter!
All of us take a ton of photos and a lot of them are of food.
I didn't even know she took this until I sat down tonight to blog.
After lunch, Logan piled up in our bed with a stack of books while I cleaned up the kitchen and then she and I both took good, long, serious naps!!! It was wonderful!
Today was a home day.
The only time we left the house was to FINALLY pick up my prescription for my toe.
You know, the one my PA was going to call in yesterday?
Logan and I celebrated with a Lemonade!
We came back and baked a cake. A carrot cake from a box mix but it does smell good.
I used milk instead of water and will make a cream cheese frosting for it in the morning.
Dinner tonight was straight from the freezer and all Trader Joe's!!!
I must admit, I love eating together in the dining room.
Louis Dean usually talks me into letting us eat in the den but I have never been comfortable doing this and I usually use the table I keep fixed with complete table settings out there.
As soon as we had fininshed our meal, Louis Dean went to bed.
I don't blame him.
He didn't get the nap we did plus he worked outside cleaning up an area previously occupied by Sanford and Son. He plans to move our chest freezer there instead of being on the deck he built outside our bedroom door. I am loving it because this cleans up one area and then frees up another that is already clean!! Win! WIN!!
Since Louis Dean was already in bed, we three girls ended this Friday night in the gazebo together.
Logan on my iPad coloring a princess.....
Mother with her feet up and enjoying a glass of wine.
It's been a good day.
I took Logan in to give her a shower and shampoo while Mother enjoyed some alone time in the gazebo.
We rejoined her after Logan's shower. Her hair is so thick and long that after a shampoo, it takes a good while to comb out. We picked up some of that old faithful 'No More Tangles' while we were out today.
As I write, Logan is fast asleep and so is Mother. I admit to loving any and all time I have to be all by myself. I have enjoyed writing and now it is time to go out and water. Last night I accidently left the water on (on a slow spray) in the front yard. I woke up abruptly around 7:00 and remembered it! I ran out and turned it off. Too bad I didn't remember that we hadn't taken the trash out last night. That would have been a prefect time to do it. Instead I went back to bed.
Oops! I hear Louis Dean is up now. Perhaps we can water together!
That always makes a chore so much more fun.
