Happy September!! The summer flowers are at their peek and it won't be long until frost now. It has been a very busy summer with never a moment to stand still for very long. Fred has been retired for a month now. I am enjoying him being home every day and I hope he is enjoying every minute of retirement. We try to fit everything into each day that we can! He has been so happy and I can see the stress of his job has left his body. I have been a very lucky woman for 25 years to have this wonderful man in my life. God surely blessed me and heard my prayers. I always say I had to suffer with the worst to appreciate the BEST! The family is growing and before long we will have another little one joining in the fun! Every day is a learning day for Nolan as the world is so new to him. He and MiMi as he calls me like to play and cuddle. What a joy he is. Grandpa or PaPa as he calls him loves it when this acrobatic little wonder climbs up beside him to sit and chatter. We try to enjoy every minute with him. Chase will be 11 soon and he is the sweetest! His dad and mom have taught him so well and he is always eager to learn. His manners are very refreshing this day in age. When I talked to him recently we were in the middle of a conversation when he said, "Grandma, can you hold on a minute? I want to tell you right now I miss you and I love you." What a dear he is. Wish we didn't live so far away. His hugs are the BEST! I have been sewing every minute I can and Fred and I have been doing a lot of wood working. We finished the 6 foot by 35 inch primitive cupboard and it looks better than I planned. My problem is getting my imagination out of my head and into Fred's head. Even with my drawings it isn't easy for him to see at times. I have so many projects planned in my head it is very crowded! Every day is a blessing and we have to enjoy our happy times. I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful summer and looking forward to fall!!! Love you all!
