A Quiet Moment for a 5 Year Old


Happy Birthday Ewan

Ewan, our youngest Grandson, is 5 years old today.  How time has flown bye for all of us.

We had a family party this afternoon to celebrate…we are all exhausted but Ewan knows how to pace himself and after all the goodies he decided to take 10 minutes to chill out.

Anyway it is the BIG Party bash tomorrow with all his school friends, so perhaps we all need to follow his example and chill out before it all kicks off tomorrow.


1 week old….grown just a bit

Bleak Outlook for the Weekend…

Outlook for the weekend is rather bleak……our brief honeymoon with spring has come to a pause…..high winds and rain forecast ( the aftermath of last weekends storms over eastern USA).
