Still cold

A photo from January,1996 of the covered bridge at Bridgeton, Indiana.

It is still cold here, but supposed to get all the way up in the thirties tomorrow. We will think a heat wave has hit. I will be thankful for it!

We kept Lorelei today while her mom did some errands and a bit of Christmas shopping. She is such a happy little girl. And have I told you that she loves books? I didn't realize Sarah had stuck some of hers from home in the diaper bag, so I got out one we had for her for Christmas. She looked and looked through it. She will sit and sit looking through and talking about the pictures....what she is saying I do not know, but she is very intent when telling me all about them.

Her other thing is to reach for her papaw every time he passes. He carries her around and shows her everything and tells her about each item. And while it is okay for him to leave the room I am in with her, she does not like it if I leave the room and leave them behind.

She also enjoys going after the cats and Shelby...not all the time, though she does crawl up to Shelby fairly often and talks to her also. Shelby doesn't know what to think...she is sort of afraid of being hurt inless I am right there. Or maybe she is afraid of Lorelei being hurt...not sure which it is. If I am right there about as close as possible she is fine with it. But if I am standing up, she gets up, too.
I have went back to moderating comments....I tried just using word verification and it did not slow them spammers down at all.

I know you cherish every moment spent w/ Lorelei - She's a treasure!

I miss my grand-daughter sooo bad it hurts! But it's out of my hands now & there's nothing I can do about it. Too bad, she could have had more people to love her if they would have allowed it.

I'm sorry about the spammers & I'm surprised that word verif didn't take care of that pesky problem.

Oh brrrrrr that picture looks cold, of course it is very cold here right now...and the wind really drives the cold thru a person. Lorelei is just adorable, thank you for the wonderful pics on your previous blog entry...what a joy she must be! Stay warm in your heat wave in the 30s...we will not get out of the teens with the winds blowing! Happy weekend!

You are so lucky to have such a charming and beautiful granddaughter in Lorelei!

The picture is lovely, I am glad I clicked on it to make it bigger.

Hi Rose, We are in Brevard, NC---and have had a couple of great days hiking and 'waterfalling'.

Glad you got to spend some time with Bright Eyes. She is so gorgeous. You'll love Christmas with her around this year.

I have photos of that bridge, but not with snow! What a wonderful place. We bought some flour at the mill. Lorelei is such a joy and I'm glad she is a book lover :-) If I had a grandchild I would love reading to it the most. I finally gave away most of my kids old books. I love children's books with good stories and great illustrations.

The covered bridge shot looks great in the larger size. Your comment is very interesting and a glimpse into days when Lorelei is at your house. I hope you're having a great Saturday!

Isn't it fun to babysit? It's tiring as well!

I bet Christmas will be so much fun with Lorelei.

I'm having trouble with spammers too. GRRRR!
