Being Grandparents

We were asked to give our kids time to prepare for the big 1-year birthday party, so along with the other set of grandparents, we took LV to the quilt show at Heritage Village in Calgary.

We were so much more focused on being grandparents than we were on the quilts, even though both grandmothers are quilters.

We did manage to squeeze in a couple of quilt pictures, though.  The show, as always, was fantastic!

Happy, happy grandparents!  Blessings, Peg

Grizz and I took a day to visit the Calgary Zoo (sans grandchildren, they’re a little young for a full day like that, and besides their parents couldn’t come and didn’t want to miss their childrens’ first visit). It’s an impressive place, and we didn’t see it all by any means, so we’ll be back, next time with little ones along.

It’s May 9 already???

Where did April go, and I missed May Day, May the 4th Be With You, Cinqo de Mayo….

Oh, man, life is passing by just too fast!

But I have accomplished a few things.

This quilt is on the design wall:

And yesterday afternoon, I whipped up these two little goodies:

Aren’t they just so cute!!!!

Now Brenda is all packed up and will go for her spa treatment (AKA sewing machine service) while we’re away playing with our grandchildren.

Today, we’re going to head out to shop at some garage sales with DS-K and DDIL-M, pick up the last of the bark mulch to finish off our back yard, then later dinner and cards with friends. 

And then we have a couple of days to finish off the last bits and pieces before we head out with the trailer next week.  Oh, and tomorrow evening take in a show at our local arts center.  All in all a full weekend!

When we get home, we’ll be moving my parents, so they’ll be living nearer to us and we don’t have to wonder if the mountain passes will be open if we need to get to them.

And Grizz has been busy too, besides working in the back yard – he built a shoe rack for our trailer (among other little jobs that I keep finding for him)

So, we’re off and running!

Happy May to all of you, and wishing all you mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow.

Blessings, Peg
