    Sunday in the Sticks

    Grandma teaching Bug how to Knifty knit.

    We visit the sticks once a month. We used to visit on the fourth Sunday of the month but we’ve moved it to the third Sunday.


    We visit so we can spend time with Grandma. Grandma is getting older and tireder and she doesn’t do as much as she would like to but she still really loves to have company so company we be. It’s fun to be company. It’s nice to have a big family dinner as a tradition too. The older I get the more I love tradition.

    Cooking with Auntie.

    My Aunt Keren always fixes us something fancy. She’s good at fancy.

    Sneaking a cupcake.

    And of course there is always dessert. Usually something Bug helps with.

    Even Papa gets in on the action.

    My Dad even got in on the action this time. It’s been so nice having my dad around more. It sucks that he’s home because he busted his rotator cuff and is in so much pain at night that he’s taken up drinking a glass of wine to help him sleep but it sure is nice having him around. I hope his glove business takes off so he can stay home all the time. His surgery to fix his shoulder is scheduled for January and then he’ll have time after that to heal so I guess we’ll just have to see.

    Home again.

    Then back on the road again, jiggety jog.

    It won't be done in time but that's okay. The heart paints what the heart paints.

    Bug was kinda out of sorts on our way home. Probably lots of mixed feelings about missing old friends. So we stopped and painted a plate. Painting always cures what ails you.
