May 31,2016

We have been busy with the end of school year.  Because I am on the Alumni Board I have assignents at graduating etc.  Now it is over and summer is here and I think I will get organized?
Yesterday I cleaned out attic because a truck is coming to day today to pick up donations.  Whew I am glad that is done. Slowly getting rid of Stuff.  Much more to go and think this will be my job this summer.  Wish my grandkids were here to see if they want any before I discard, Dishes etc.
Finally found someone to do the yard work for me as it is a bit hard to bend over as I used to.  Grampy says I am getting old and that is why but only in years not in my head.
Lots of birthdays this month to celebrate.  Richard,Ben, Mabel,Sadie,Griffin,Bob amd Chelsey's husband Brad.  Think that is all?
No plans to travel but would love to see all of our kids -maybe someday.  Dan is coming to Ca tonight for a few days and of course Bob is here all of the time.  Keep up with all on Facebook.

Playing catch up

Haven't posted for a long time and think I had better catch up with what has gone on in the few years.
(If I can remember)!  Bob has moved home with us and is great having hime here.  He says it is to take card of the elderly but I thing we take care of him!  Of course he is gettoing elderly too.
Billl and I audit classes at Chapman which is fun being in classes with the kids.  We each take a different class because we are each interested in different subject.
2014 was not a very good year for me.  In June I tripped over a chair in the cafe at school and broke my elbow.  Just get over that and tripped on the pad at Curves and hit my head. The paramedics came and ended up in the hospital with a hemotoma and they did drilled a hole in my head to drain the blood  that turned out fine except I fell again in another month at Curves and ended back with a broken arm and another hemotoma.  This time more serious.  Was home for a few days and the headachs started so went back and this time the tookout a piece of my skull and put a drain in.  Was in a coma for 5 days and thing were pretty scary for my family.  It has bee a year and a half and I am back to normal   Oh! they shaved my head so I did not color it again when it grew   out so now it a pretty silver gray.
Enough of that!!!! Now a new year and there is much to do.  ust finished a month ago of some fairy houses for aty (Matt,s wife ) for a festival she is having tomorrow April 15.  You can see them on my Facebook.
 I will write some morrow and try to keep again with my blog.

A good Sunday

I am so blessed that these four beautiful great grandbabies live close enough to come for dinner
at least once a month or more. Miss having my others live close enough to see them.
If they did believe me my days would be full of all of our wonderfull babies.
I miss them all and sometimes feel bad that they will never really
know Grampy and me as well as these four do.
Last night Sadie just didn't want to leave and
was having such a good time playing
the teddy bears and little toys.
I so love them all.

Last week my cousin Jeannette and Geoff visited us. They are from Sorrington in Sussex England.
Jeannette is th granddaughter of Frederick Smith who was the brother of my grandfather
Percy Smith. We had fun going over genealogy while Bill and Geoff had a good visit.
They were staying in LongBeach at the Hyatt so we went there and traveled
around Long Beach to see where grandpa Smith lived.
We went to the Long Beach historical society and found information about him
and his other brother Leopold' s real estate business in 1904.
We had fun with Jan and Geoff and really enjoyed them.
Just wish they lived closer. However they have a
beautiful home in the country with lots of
trees and green grass. It looks just like you would
expect an english home would be like.
Would love to visit some time.
It was a fun 4 days!!!!!
