I don’t know what I will do with my time when the flowers wither for the season. Maybe the trees will turn to a beautiful hue here, and give me something else to photograph. In the meantime, this hibiscus continues to enchant me every time I pass by. This particular blossom is larger than a dinner plate. The front is gorgeous, but I tend to look at flowers from a different angle. Every line of it is so graceful, so elegant. And look at those little green spikes on the stem! Ok, next time I will show you the dock here at the campground.
The other day I was at work in the camp store, and in between customers I was stretching behind the counter. My co-workers asked me what I was doing, and so I was telling them how my legs hurt from standing all day if I didn’t do some stretches. As I was talking about this and how I wished that I could find an exercice DVD that would be VERY low impact, a customer at the counter told me I should try one called Pilates for 50+ She said she does Pilates herself and that she had seen the one for older folks and had been thinking about getting it for her mother.
So, I went online and found it on Amazon.com. I ordered it today, so I will post again later and let you know how it works for me.
Wow, I am finally here, getting this blog started. I have been putting it off for far too long. Starting a blog has been on my list of things to do forever!
Where to start? First, let me introduce myself to you. I am Karen, the Fab Grandma. My three grandchildren all live very far away from me.
Michael, who it the oldest grandson at almost 10 years old, lives in England with his Dad, my son, Seth. Seth has been in the Air Force for more than 12 year now. Michael was born in San Antonio, Texas. He lived in Guam for about 2 years, then moved to England when he was 3 years old.
His sister, Sarah,who is 7, was born in Guam and lives in Washington State with her mother. We saw her last Christmas when she came to Georgia to spend the week with her other grandmother.
Spencer belongs to my youngest daughter, Emily. He is 4 years old and lives in Georgia.
It is because of my grandchildren that I learned to make quilts. I wanted to make something for them that no one else could. The first quilt I made was for Sarah, before she was born. Since then, I have made quite a few. I love each one of them and feel like they are a part of ME.
