Hello out there

My daughter came over yesterday and gave me a piece of her mind.  Why, you ask?  Because I had not done a blog entry since Thursday morning!  
Oops.  
In my case, if there has been no blog entry, you should probably thank your lucky stars, because I probably had nothing to say; but that's never stopped me before.  
The renters found a nice, roomy place in the country and are completely moved out.  This means Cliff will be a very busy man figuring how to get rid of the old mobile home: once we went inside it, we realized should have been vacated long ago.  Can you say decrepit and dangerous?  It's going to be quite a project, and Cliff will be anxious until the task is behind him.  A next-door neighbor with a bulldozer will see what he can do to help get it moved.  We've called KCPL about pulling the electric meter and line, and are waiting to hear how soon they can do that.      
My son, his wife, and my granddaughter Lyndsay will get here from Georgia tonight around nine or ten o'clock, so I've been getting ready for their arrival, making sure all bedding is fresh and vacuuming, dusting, and mopping.  Also cooking some things ahead.  
Honestly, I've had time to make blog entries, I've just been focusing on other things.  
My dog, Iris, is totally over her cold/flu/pneumonia, whatever it was she had.  She is a bundle of energy who absolutely loves all people; there have been no more dogfights, and we plan to see that no more fights are initiated.   
So there you have it.  Over and out.  I will include a picture my daughter took yesterday of my great-granddaughter walking with my son-in-law:




I love this picture.

I guess you have had your mind on a lot of other things around your house. I was thinking that maybe your son had already arrived and that was why you hadn't made an entry. Have a great time with your family!

are those the neigbours with the frog pond/pool behind the house?

Meesha, if you mean the neglected swimming pool, no. They own their own home. It's the ratty old trailer house by our driveway. Unbelievable hoarding, clutter, filth and dog hair. I can't say much in my blog because you never know who might find there way there. I have a private blog especially dedicated to them, with pictures and all.

And how many entries has your daughter written since say, Mother's Day? 2 and both about you.

Adorable picture. Have a great visit with your family. Iris should enjoy the extra attention.

My daughter gets upset if I don't blog for a long time either; she likes to know what's going with me I guess. However, she hasn't blogged since February, so how is that fair? Such a cute photo! Hope the visit goes very well.

Your greatgranddaughter is adorable.

What a great photo. Just that tiny little delicate hand in that big protective one - that alone would be a lovely picture.

Love the photo! I know you have been very busy getting ready for your son & his family! I know you will have a great time!

I'm glad Iris is better!

Adorable picture of your SIL and great granddaughter!! Also like the picture of Cliff haying a few posts back. Brings back lots of memories for me being back on my grandparents farm during haying season.
