last summer Monday...

It was a wonderful weekend of family and food and talk. Many, many hours of it, even as afterwards I thought -- but I forgot to ask this and tell about that...

But the new week's here and with it come the expected changes. The young couple is off and away...

... and breakfast is as it was before. Ed, me, the porch.

And then Snowdrop is here, because it's still a summer Monday for her, even as tomorrow, the little girl starts school.

But today, she still is here.

Snowdrop, I think grandpa Ed is trying to make an important phone call.
But I want him to read me a book!

Guess who won that round?

I wont post many photos today. We did quite a bit of dancing...

Really, quite a bit...

And a lot of reading into the late afternoon, as the little girl is tuckered out after a seemingly endless summer of adventures.

Evening. For the first time in very many weeks, I haven't an agenda. Belly up, good book in hand, and a big smile for the beauty of this rapidly fading season.

  1. Her very first First Day of School tomorrow... hope you can either be there or hear lots of stories later, stories to share of course.

    And a whole new Fall crop of flowers coming soon!

    1. may the flowers come and the bugs recede!

  2. I think Ed is having more fun than he ever imagined with a grand-baby around the house.

    1. I think he would not have imagined how much you can love a little one ...
