Vacations over""""""""""

Well my summer vacation is just about over with" we return to work monday. Can't say that I am looking forward to working in a hot kitchen when the temps are in the eighties and nineties.

On a brighter note I am still addicted to working on the grandmothers flower garden.

Have wanted to get out and play around in my garden but the chiggers have been sooooooo bad this year that they are eatting me alive. They seem to like some people better then others. Hubby can be outside all day long and they don't even attempt to bite him. Now let me stick my nose out the door and they have bitten me all over my body. And anyone that knows anything about chiggers knows that they itch for a good week afterwards. It is as bad as getting caught up in poisin ivy. One of my friends from work said she sprays herself with off and that seems to keep them away so I will have to give that a try.

My daughter called and told me that my granddaughter is gaining weight Yessssssssssss we are so happy for her! She is such a cute little thing. Can you tell I am a proud granny? She sent me this picture of her the other day . This is a doll that I made for her two sisters before her, its one of those topsy turvy dolls that has a dolls head at each end, anyway she says that Kaitlin dosen't want to let go of it. She has a very good grip on it for her age. So now that she is getting to the age where she is noticing things I was standing in line at wallmart and this cute little baby doll just jumped into my cart! Hubby asked where that came from and I told him I didn't know it was just there. He said yeah it just jumped in all by itself right? Hmmmmm wonders upon wonders. Anyway it is on the way to my sweet little grandbaby as we speak.

Well I had better go get some breakfast as the tea I drank this morning is wearing thin. take care untill next time.
