Nothing but Time

So when you are entertaining grandkids it is important to engage them in low cost activities. Low cost like rock painting. First you find the perfect rocks. (We do discuss the merits of what makes a perfect rock.) We then have to wash all of the rocks we gathered. A good and long scrub is necessary to get all of the dirt off. It did seem I was doing more of the heavy scrubbing.

Once dried, we had to decide what design should we paint. You have to stare at a rock for a while before you can determine what it is destined to be. Can take a lot of time. ❤️ We painted a lot of rocks this summer and fall. Grandma learned that she needs to buy more cheap brushes and hide the good ones. 🤪 Rocks are hard on brushes or maybe it’s the dried on paint that gets them.

I was recently looking around my art studio and I saw a pile of leftover rocks. I decided I should paint a few. I still have many rocks left over. Maybe I should line them up over the tv and stare at them a while. It’s important that grandma stays busy too. ❤️

Loving gnomes.

Bunny Clothes

Because my grandkids think I can pretty much make anything I’ve been asked to make clothes for a bunny. In all fairness I probably nudged the kids in the direction of thinking grandma is capable of all things. What can I say it’s not easy when they make me feel like a rock star.

So this is my second attempt of making bunny dresses. You see this “dwarf” bunny seems to be getting bigger then what the owner’s brochure said.

So I’ve make three sizes. I’ve also been asked to glam up the outfits. Apparently the little bunny is a bit of a diva. I will mail them out tomorrow.

I love being a grandma. I didn’t realize the pure joy this title gives me. My mom isn’t alive anymore but if she was I would tell her I’m sorry. I’m sorry for not bringing her granddaughter over more often then I had. My parents adored my daughter. It’s a different kind of love then the love of a parent and child. It’s different because you the grandparents are so glad to have lived long enough for this moment.

As a grandparent your never too tired. No request is usually denied and your time is their time. So when a granddaughter asks for bunny clothes you smile and ask, how many. ❤️

A Girl and Her Dog

My granddaughter and my granddog are funny to watch. Tazz the dog was in the family first. The kids came and I always wondered what the dog thought about all that. My granddaughter has painted the dogs toenails when she slept. She has tried to dress Tazz but the dog won’t have it. I’ve seen the dog just get up and leave the room. I’m sure she was thinking “these little people are just too loud.”

I saw my granddaughter trying to get Tazz’s attention. She went nose to nose trying to get the dog to do something. I took a picture. I see another painting and here it is.
