‘Hey, Granny?’

Think I should have kept track of the number of times I heard that little question this week. It was usually followed by:

May I have a peppermint?

Is it tablet time?

When will breakfast be ready?

Let’s go play with the squirt guns!

Is it dessert time yet?

Can HoneyPie go outside to play with us?

So many questions from our grandchildren that were here with us on the farm this past week. They went home today. Pop-pop and I think they would have stayed longer! There is a lot of freedom out here on the farm. Running all around without much concern for cars. We neighbors all know one another here on our private drive ‘hidden valley lane’. It is a comfort and a huge blessing.

The next-door neighbor children are happy to come over and play in the late afternoons. They run, giggle, play ball and climb trees. They have a great time outside with one another. How is it they all get thirsty, hungry, and have to use the restroom all at the same time!?

The Frederick County Fair was in full swing while the grands were here. We made a long, full night of it there. To be sure there where were no bedtime complaints upon getting home that evening. Everyone, young and old, was whipped, and full of sugar!

Gentle reader, you will never guess what the big “wow!” was—the feet and nail brushes that are in each bathroom in our home. Those giggles will resound in my memory for a happy long time! Those grands raced to the bathroom to scrub their feet with those brushes. Hey, one cannot go to bed with dirty farm feet!

All those questions had a big ‘YES’ to them during this week. Oh the fun of it all. Until next time…..

  1. You have such a beautiful and well groomed farm! Your grandkids have no idea how lucky they are to be able to spend time there instead of in front of the TV and all day on their electronics. They are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents Mitzy!

    • Gosh, Diane, thank you kindly for your remarks. I think both our g’children are blessed (I know we are, yes?) ā¤ļø
