If you do stuff, stuff gets done.......

Hello again! I'm fine....

and thank you to everyone who has left comments and sent emails asking about my whereabouts and/or health. I am fine, just busy with stuff and circumstances.
Hopefully I will be back blogging on a more regular basis now.

I stopped blogging at first because our desktop computer had a bug, my pictures are all on it, and what is a blogpost without some pictures? It took more than a week and Jeff has since fixed it.

I've also been spending most weekdays with GS Gavin while his mommy is teaching. He is a doll and I love him dearly but he prefers me to play with him when he awake and hold him while he sleeps instead of blogging. Gavin likes to crawl into and then just sit in my bottom kitchen drawer. His bottles and dishes were already in this drawer before he claimed it as his playspace.



My sweet Aunt Evelyn passed away last week. She was just 10 days short of her 88th birthday. She was my mother's sister and a wonderful mother, wife, aunt, grandmother, woman. She will be missed by all of us.



Aunt Evelyn was a wonderful cook and I think this photo of her with a meal she cooked and served is a perfect memory. Aunt Evelyn is on the left. The man in all the pictures is her husband, Uncle Jarvis. They got married right at the end of WWII.
He passed away 5 years ago.

  2. In the dinner-time photo Aunt Evelyn is on the right of Jarvis or at the head of the table. The pictures are so sweet and surely depict the happiness this couple shared. My sister loved preparing wonderful meals, setting the table so pretty and Jarvis surely enjoyed eating the good food. One of my blessings was getting to sit at that table so many times. It is hard dealing with life without my precious big sister. Love You, Mom

  3. What a cute little guy. When I have my grand daughter here, I don't get much blogging done either. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt and I know you have many wonderful memories of her (and of your uncle). What a treasure these old pictures are.
