Saturday night, as I lay in bed, I sort of planned what I needed to do Sunday to try to make a start on getting things in order around here. Since I broke my arm, a lot of things have had to go undone or half-done and I am anxious to try to ‘begin again’ around here while trying to get my hand and arm to loosen up. ( I swear …the swelling is worse. )
I had about 6 small things on the list for the next morning…. one being making some banana bread, just because I have had a taste for it! lol
So, Sunday I got up and gave the pups their baths…..pulled all the bedcover off my bed to wash…..dusted and swept the living room….and was just beginning to get going good when….
Amanda and Kelvin and Wyatt came in….and my list went right out that open door! lol
They wanted to take a trip down towards Savannah Georgia …and wanted me and Dan to go along. The trip takes a good 4 hours or longer depending on traffic, etc. and I knew if I went, then there would be no more work done around the house that day….
I wanted to stay home and finish all the things I had planned on doing, but I also wanted to be with Wyatt and my ‘younguns’ … and see the ocean.
‘ My first look at the ocean! ’
‘Me and my grandma at the beach!’
‘ I’m laughing and trying to run to my mommy as I feel the sand moving between my little toes!’
‘Me and my mommy and daddy at Tybee Island!’
By the time we got there it was late afternoon and cloudy. The good thing about it, was that it was so warm…not cold at all like I had feared . Wyatt loved the ocean, the sand…everything… and was giggling like crazy!
They took his little socks off and let him feel the sand moving under his feet and he just squealed with delight!!! (That alone was worth the whole long trip to me.) They will have to really keep an eye on him when they go back if he is walking…because I see right now that he is going to be like my kids and not have a bit of fear of water.
We ended up eating out at a seafood restaurant before coming home….ummmmmmm good!
Wyatt can sit up in a high chair now…with a little padding! lol
‘Please pay no mind to the green stuff around my little mouth, cause I do so love my green beans!’
I was one worn out old lady when I finally walked back in my door way past midnight Sunday…well Monday…morning…..Those all day trips like that was made for when I was still in my younger years! I was so stiff from all the riding…but still so glad I went.
I finally made that Banana Nut Bread last night!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
