Slow but Sure

Wednesday, August, 9, 2017

The knee is getting better day by day...slow but sure. This past Sunday was a big day went on my first outing, besides physical therapy and doctor We went to Mass, out to breakfast, and a short ride. It was just wonderful to get out and do something.

Then Tuesday went and had my hair done...added silver and lavender highlights.

Now some catching up: (Warning...grandchildren pictures.)

I had decided to start mentioning family birthdays in the blog and of course I missed three since the surgery.

On July 21st our grandson, Jonah, turned five. He is our son and daughter-in law's middle child and has been running and climbing since he learned to walk.  He has the cutest little face. (We, of course, are not bias at all...LOL)

This was the cutest thing to watch we were at
Cracker Barrel, a couple of years ago, and we
were getting ready to leave. When it is time for
a nap it is time for a nap.

At the Detroit Zoo.
For his birthday this year all he wanted was
a turtle birthday. He looks so darn happy.
Wish we could have been there to see it.

On July 30th our granddaughter, Charlotte, turned six. She is our daughter's oldest. She never ceases to amaze us with what comes out of her mouth. Sometimes I wonder if she is really only six. She is definitely her mother's "mini-me".

Mother and Daughter.

Oh No!
From the time she was about one she would
do this. It was the cutest thing.

I do not remember the last time she did it.

On August 1st our granddaughter, Adelaide, turned one. She is our daughter's youngest and our youngest grandchild. We can already see her personality starting to shine through. Even though she cannot really talk yet she gets her point across especially when she is unhappy with the way things are going.

She is about 5 weeks here and talking up a storm.

Her mother saw this on the internet and thought
it was a cute idea, and it is.
Unfortunately, Adelaide did not agree.
The problem is she does not like sitting in the grass.


Happiness is Having
Grandchildren to Love!


  1. Nice that you are now getting out and about, nd about, love the pics of the pictures of the Grands.

    1. It is nice to be able to get out. I knew the process and I know in a few months it will be nicely behind me but the "cabin fever" thing is trying my patience. Right now I am truly envying how you two get to move around...:)

  2. Hello! So nice to read your post, I've missed you!
    Wonderful that your knee is improving and you had an 'outing' with success.
    Your pictures of the grandchildren are beautiful, thank you for sharing.
    Josh, omg, Adorable with a capital A, falling asleep like that.
    Charlotte, mini-me for sure. If my daughter had had a daughter (!?!?) I would have expected no less. Both are beautiful!
    And Adelaide and the watermelon slice, too cute. I've seen that too but never think of the moments to do it or don't have willing parties! :)
    Keep getting better, Deb!

    1. Thank you Patsy. Without any prejudice at think they are pretty cute also.

      I had never seen the watermelon slice picture before but it is a cut idea. I think a blanket under her would have made it more successful...of course, the one she got might be the best memory.

      Hope you have some sunshine today at the Ridge...we are "enjoying" what looks like may be an all day rain.

  3. Glad things are improving for your knee and just maybe it will be a foursome climbing the "Q" this winter.
    All the pictures of the grands are Adorable. It's so much fun as Grandparents to spoil them rotten then send them home to their parents. Kind of a Payback for all the nasty things they did while they were growing up.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you for your comments. We do love spoiling and sending the grandkids home...LOL
