A lovely day

I have that kind of delicious soreness grandparents get from spending time with grandchildren and overextending themselves. You have so much fun at the time you don't really mind the pain that comes later.

Today was more like a day in September than late November. We'd arranged to have T come over with the idea of working in the shop painting Christmas projects. It was so lovely, though, we just had to have a walk first. We set out, TB, me, T, Bill and the dog, and walked around the lake. T led us and even though we hadn't been this way in a couple of years, he remembered all the paths.

Once we got back, we had lunch and then headed back to work on the projects TB'd cut out on the scroll saw.

These are just a few of the ornaments TB made. We thought it would be fun for T to decorate some of them for his dad, other set of grandparents, and aunt and uncle.

T chose the ones he wanted to paint and decided which colors he wanted to use. He was very curious about color combinations, i.e. yellow and green make orange.

TB painted other ornaments side by side with T.

Sometimes he acted as a consultant.

All in all, it was a lot of fun.

After T grew tired of painting, we went back outside. T wanted to go for another walk, this time down the street. Our legs were already sore but how could we say no? Off we went.

It sure was a lovely day today!

I know what you mean about having fun with the grand kids and having aches and pains later on.
I have three great grand sons, ages soon to be five on the eighth of Dec. Three and 19 months.

They are all wild and busy, busy. Funny and keep me laughing the whole time I am with them.
