Happy New Year

Finally made it up to see son Roy and granddaughter Jay for Christmas.  Found the perfect spot for the Seahawk clock made from glass for Roy.  He had painted one of his rooms to be his "Seahawk" room.  Clock looks great there... we must think alike..
Jay was happy with her gifts as well.  She is doing wonderful with swimming and looks like we have another little grand that loves the water.  

The holiday is over and glad we were able to do as much as we could with Earl coming down with fever in middle of it all.  Still we were able to spend time with friends and family somewhat... The new year is starting off with a bit of rain off and on all day but not too bad and goodness knows we need it so not complaining.

Grand Canyon

Took a little side trip up to see the "Grand" Canyon with friends Carol and Bill Cooper.  They had not spent any time up there and we just wanted to take a few days off and enjoy this beautiful country we are so blessed to live.  

Temps quite a bit cooler up there - Woke up on last morning to 29 degrees where it was 74 in the valley.  Goodness - clean, brisk, thin air!  Had a great time jumping off and on the tram and walking up and down a lot of stairs.  Our legs were pretty well shot for the ride home and will take a few days to recover from our adventure but had a marvelous time.  What is not to like at a place like that with all of God's splendor.  So glad we took that little trip. Thanks again Carol and Bill for a wonderful time.

Birthday for Jay

Our youngest granddaughter has just celebrated her 7th birthday.  Took a day and went up to Prescott to spend the time with her and son Roy.  A fun time for her with all the extra attention.  The party was at her mother's house - a "glow" party; where there is a lot of glow stuff... the children had a wonderful time.  We spent all day and finally had to leave for the long drive home.  So glad we were able to be there for this exciting time for her though.

Finally done!

Took a little longer than expected, however we are quite happy with the results.  Still a few touchups to be done here and there but all major work done.  Love the higher cabinet and banjo extension.  The old corroded sink is gone - yippee!  

Those old terrible shower doors are gone too.  It's a little strange and taking a little bit to get used to but I am so happy.  It's a short shower pan so hopefully no more stubbing of toes.  Although the end result is nice I am NOT looking forward to any more redo's in the house.  Yes, we are still planning some day to re-do kitchen but that will be pricey and I'm not sure we can come to an agreement on what will be what... ha!

Sad outcome

Sorry to say that poor little Pitiful who was terribly pathetic with a broken leg and no real momma to look after him passed away.  It about broke our hearts... thought he just might have a fighting chance but never really expected him to make it.  We tried to help and tried not to get too attached but I will admit it was tough on both of us.  Earl was very kind and put a little cross on his grave.  I'm afraid we were both doting on him a bit much.  Animals have a way of worming their little lives right into your hearts and it doesn't take much.
