Day 2

Yep, we're at Legoland.
I'm not sure who is more excited,
the kids who woke at dawn,
or the grandpa
who wanted to be first in line.
He was so bummed.

Three vehicles got there before us.
Well here's a few.

Yes, there were a few lines,
but the boys didn't seem to mind.
Recap Day 2:
All survived.
We also saw a show
where we were in the splash zone
and went on several watery rides, 
and since Grandma
is a crazy fool,
I was on them and not taking photos.

P.S. Can't wait for day 3!!!

Day 1

We, my husband and I,
decided to take our grandsons:

 this one and

this one

to San Diego
to go to Legoland
on my Spring Vacation.

Day 1
We drove and drove and drove and finally
we made it!

And just in time for a little 

Racing on the beach!

Rock tossing.

There was also some time for 
Walking with Grandpa

I asked him what he was thinking? 
He was washing a rock.
Day 1 and I'm having so much fun!!!!
Can't wait for Legoland.

Author's Photos

It seems that lately
all I do is ask for advice.
(By the way, I'm still working on the Brioche. Ugh!)
In any event,
this time I'm asking for advice
on which photo,

you all think I should use,

to go with my author's bio?


I write Women's Fiction,
so it's okay for me to be happy.
(I actually have a shot where I look pensive.
I'm keeping it
just in case I write a mystery - LOL)

Thanks for the help
and for being so understanding
that I've been a bit elusive.
Will be by to visit you later today.

Handy Dandy

Looky, looky what I found.
Got to say I'm really excited by it.

What is it?
You might ask.

It's my new eyeglasses holder.

Much better than having them sit on my head.
Much better than sticking them through my necklaces or 
I love it.
It's called a Smart Pin.

Brioche Breakdown

My daughter
asked me to knit her a scarf.
She bought the yarn,
silver and navy.
I told her to pick a pattern.
Brioche is breaking me!
I've spent two weeks and have this
to show for my efforts,

(Pathetic, right?)

Mostly because I've ripped it out
too many times to count.
There must be a secret!

I think I've got it now,
but I thought that once or twice before.
Oh the pain.
Hard to tell, 
but it's mostly silver on one side,
and mostly navy on the other.
Very interesting,
if only I could figure it out.
