Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away....


And she is gone home now...it is all quiet on the northern front.  It is not that she is loud, but we do miss her presence.  I think the whole house misses it.


Wednesday she planned to go home Thursday night, but she changed her mind.  She told me this morn that she liked having someone to sleep with...LOL  (She and I always sleep in the spare bed.)


 *********************
We took her the Heron Viewing Station on Wednesday, and she so wanted to take backroads.  But there is just no good way to do that.  But at least we know she loves backroads driving.  As I told over on here on my other blog, she found her new favorite road when we went the back way to Mansfield on Tuesday.

At the viewing station we saw a few geese, herons--plus we could see the heron rookery from the parking lot and she got to look at them through the binoculars and spotting scope., plus we saw two eagles.  I will be showing pics from there later.

We had taken fried bologna sandwiches and chips and water, to have a picnic.  Before we got all around the boardwalk it started raining, so we had to rush to the car.  We just sat in it and had our picnic and she loved even that.  Just the simplest things can keep her happy.

Such a sweet, smiling face! I know she definitely brings the sunshine with her when she visits. The picnic in the car sounds fun and it makes me hungry for a fried bologna sandwich. Haven't had one of those in a while!

She loves the back roads. How wonderful. You are cultivating her interest in nature. Kids are amazing and bring grandparents more joy than they know...

Your grand daughter is fast growing up into a beautiful lady. She is a nature loving sweet girl. I am sure she is going to miss you too!

She is such a wonder isn't she. To love the simple things such as backroads and picnics in the car are so sweet. I know what you mean about the quiet---even the house misses her. I get that.

We had a dog once when the kids were younger and we were having some septic work done and the darned dog got in the truck and ate all the guys lunches. They laughed and I fixed them sandwiches. We all have our doggie stories

Oh my goodness she is growing up so fast. It's so nice you get to spend so much time together. I know exactly what you mean about the silence after they have gone. I never know what to do with myself when wee Riley goes home.

Wishing you both many many such simply happy days!

Looks like you had another wonderful visit from your granddaughter... She certainly does love to come to visit her grandmother and grandfather... That is such a special time in her life ---and for you two.

Hugs,
Betsy
