About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

ABC Wednesday - J is for JOY

ABC Wednesday is brought to you by Mrs. Nesbitt.
JOY is being a Gramma!

Noah and Eden visit the Easter Bunny for Eden's first Easter.
















On the left is Noah when he was about 2 weeks old, and on the right is Eden last week when she was 2 weeks old. I chose these shots because they have a similar pose and they look so pure and innocent. I love these two little ones so much and enjoy them almost more than I did my own (not really) because I can love them and appreciate them and not have to do any of the "dirty" work involved in raising them. I will always be there for them!

Grandchildren, they say, are the reward for not killing your own children!
I dont really subscribe to that, but I must say they bring a special love & thrill that nothing else can. Yours are just beautiful!

Now why didn't I think of that? I could have said Joy in several things, including grandkids! BTW, precious little ones!!!!!!!!!

There is an expression hereabouts - he/she is so gorgeous I could eat him/her! Strange but true! I am sure that would be true of these two they are just beautiful.

I can't imagine being a grandmother, but I hope I am one day. It means that as I have two sons, I have to be on very good terms with their wives or partners so i can play an active role in my grandchildren's lives.

Lovely shots of two really beautiful kids. Grandparents do have a lot of pride in children, especially all of their own.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
