Friday Fragments



To participate in Friday Fragments click here

At the end of today I'll just have one week left as a full time worker bee and I have been flitting from task to task in preparation for turning my desk over to someone new. It has been a good and busy week so I am taking the Friday Fragments opportunity for a little catch-up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My grandson, Beck, who is 21 months old, is healing from his second black eye. He looks much better now, but he looked a little rough right after taking a header onto the concrete patio. I have a feeling that skinned knees and black eyes are going to be a common thing for this very active little guy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My granddaughter Anna, 4, is the 5th grandchild I have playing some kind of baseball this summer. Here she is just ready to go to her first practice. I don't know what kind of hitter she will be but I suspect that she will always be stylin'

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Borrowed from my daughters Facebook page:

EJ walks in from the backyard with no pants on - "Mom, I accidentally peed on the concrete a little bit. But don't worry, I finished in the grass. And I used Beck's sock to wipe." She was so proud.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My son, Rob, and his family spent this week in Steamboat Springs. Whatever else happened, it was a successful trip for Rob.....he caught this and several other Trout on a day of fishing in the Yampa River. (Yes, they all get thrown back)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hmm?  My son just got back from a week in Steamboat Springs. My oldest daughter and her family just went to Steamboat Springs today where her 8 and 11 year old sons both have baseball tournaments this weekend. My other daughter and her family are in Vail from today until Sunday.

I think it just might be time for mom to go somewhere.

  2. Beck is so cute and I love your styling grand-daughter too Jeanie; how cute! How exciting too with one more week of work! Maybe in some of your spare time you can dash out of town for a trip some place! I think it will be interesting to see what happens in this new season of you not working full time. I am sure it will be enjoyable!

    Funny story about EJ.

  4. girls do know how wear a baseball uniform well. Very funny FB story!
    Eating some of that trout would be a good idea - right? catch and release - I wonder what the trout would post if it could.

  5. Well after you retire from full time, you'll have enough time to go somewhere. What about "dad"? He doesn't like to travel? :)

    Poor Beck, that eye looks painful! HOpefully it's better by now.

  7. My nieces boy's had baseball tournaments in Steamboat last week. They all stayed 2 nights I think... even my sister.
    Kyla and I were just remembering when she was 3 and got flipped out of the hammock onto the wood deck. She had a huge black eye. Poor Beck.
    I just finished my Grammy week with her. She was here 5 nights. She is so easy. I can take a nap and she will play a computer game... actually she would do that the whole time if I let her (o: I am excited for you!!! Almost there!!! Retirement (o:

  10. You must be getting so excited about your retirement! It is an exciting time, but also one that brings big changes. For one thing, YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO WORK EVERYDAY!

    It is time for you to go somewhere. Do you have any plans?

  14. Oh my goodness! Poor Beck! That looks awful! He reminds me of my son who had an X-ray folder so thick that I was sure he glowed in the dark.

  15. Oh, cute little Beck reminds me of my eldest. She was in and out of the emergency room for much of her first three years of life. And Anna reminds me of my second-born. Baseball to the core!

  16. Ouch! Poor little Beck. That looks like it hurts :-(

    But Anna-- Now there is a girl with attitude. I LOVE this photo!

    Yep, I think a vacation is in order for YOU. Maybe as a treat for earning your retirement???

    Have fun. xo jj

  18. Poor Beck! I like your little ball player's attitude! Sounds like you'll soon be free as a bird to go anywhere you please, Jeanie. Hope you enjoy retirement. Are you close to any of the fires?

  19. Grand-kids are treasure. The feeling is agreeable to all grandma's and grandpa's. The happiness they radiate is just too good for any grandmother/father out their, plausible enough to say having a lot grand-kids would me mean wealth management on the grannies part.

  20. OH MY your wee Grandson's head does look so sore! Poor kid.
