Fun???


I had hoped to get some of my own home renovation planning done but the grand kiddies arrived midweek to 'play' with me.  Their house is still awaiting power and water.



We started off with a quiet and orderly visit to the library and things got more 'funner' as the week progressed! lol

I didn't fancy rescuing the the fearless female from the upper regions of McPlayland so I discouraged her from trying for the helicopter and got her to concentrate on following the 'pilot' with her eyes.  I ate most of the french fries, BTW!


So far we have kept our coins in our pocket and they have been happy to just sit on the various play options but a generous young man paid the money and now a whole new world has opened up in the mall!  lol  I was looking for some more shelving for organizing my mixed media paraphernalia.  The dollar store had nothing so I carried  and dragged them to the end of the mall only to find our Zellers is closing and again no luck. :(  I dared anyone to challenge my right to the cart for the return journey. lol  Good old Canadian Tire had the items.  I can't believe how many times I have buckled and unbuckled seat belts in the last few rainy days.

I figured a stay at home day would get me knee deep in changing stuff into the new containers but it only took them 15 minutes to come and find and 'help' me.  vbsigh  I had bought a fan deck for paint samples rather than go back and forth for various paint chips and I had selected my favourites only to find that didn't work either because it makes wonderful rays of suns and flower petals.  :0

So a lot of fun, but very little done.  I'm in bed shortly after they are!  lol

Oh Elle Dear it is a far greater thing you are doing than being able to paint a wall or two. Your Littles are so precious and are lucky to have you to be able to spend time with and explore and enjoy so many activities. I do understand the tired. I am glad my granddaughters were around me when I was much younger. Rest my dear...next week is another opportunity for life to happen...

Oh My. You are a WONDERFUL grandma! I hope... I pray... I have your ENERGY with my own! That is... when I get more than one! You're going to be creating some happy memories for those kids!

I can see why you would be in bed shortly after them. It made me tired just seeing all that fun they were having. They are typical kids, full of fun and joy. It's too bad childhood has to be wasted on the young.

Really there is nothing "funer" than spending time with kids, epecially when they are our grandkids. I love that at that age it isn't about what something costs, it's more about what you can do with it.
