Well tonight I am away from my kitchen table...I am at Firecracker's house. After all this is Firecracker Flex Friday! And I have to say I love those days! And today was no different! I got up here to Limon before Little Miss Isabel awoke and got to visit with her mom a little before she headed off to work! Then once Izzy woke up, it took most of the morning to get her dressed. Toddlers have their own built in clock and she is no exception...and she is trying so hard to control what little bit of the world she can control...so she had to spend some time in her little princess night gown from Aunt Autumn...she did skip the matching pink slippers!
It is quite the transition in between times I see her and it was only a few days...However, today she was very much in NO mode! She takes her "No" very serious and she means it. But we did get our breakfast of scrambled eggs finished and we picked out our own outfit...so the shorts might be a little big right now...our shirt was a onesey so it stayed tucked in and no baby butt crack whatsoever. Anyway we went out to feed the goats...to which I get several "Gramma--NO--ME!" She might be a tad independent but you know that is okay with me! And it is even more rewarding as her mom also gets to deal with an independent daughter! But you know they grow up to be strong independent women...the kind you admire and are so proud of.
Okay I got distracted a little...Otis just climbed up on the couch to lay down by me. For some reason he thinks we are friends...I am guessing Jay is watching and laughing away because me and the dog are hanging out! But I know Otis must miss him...after all Jay is the one who rescued him!
Now back to my day...after all it is getting late...it will soon be tomorrow! After the goats we headed to get mom for lunch...AFTER we took the truck to get the tires rotated. In order to go we needed our baby Gretchen and our "Amy Dog Purse!"
Then we came home to watch our video and rocky bye the Little Miss! And as I rocked her I thought it doesn't get much better than this as it was raining outside...RAIN. I laugh because I got a text from Jay's mom who was on the train to Chicago...but the text she sent me just made me smile..."In Iowa, very green and lots of stuff standing in the fields I think they call it water! It is caused by what they call rain! Must be an Iowa substance cause we sure don't have the stuff in Colorado!"
For those from not around here...we are in desperate need of some rain...so getting to experience some was a blessing for sure! And I hope that it hits all the grassland that desperately needs a drink as well as those fires that do not seem to want to stop! I think of how we all need some "water" whether figuratively or literally! I received the following from my friend Mary...
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.
