Quiet times


Not much going on around here so little to write about. We did get snow,  maybe an inch. It was lovely this morning all unmarked and serene.

I've been, sketching, knitting on a pair of socks, and reading. Putting in time on the stationary bike, cooking, eating and feeling generally uninspired. Had a HUGE Anxiety Attack which left me shaky all day Saturday. Was very grateful that daughter #2 had planned a visit.  Her company was a blessing. We spent our time together talking and reading.

I did have a wonderful visit with my granddaughter, Anah, after school on Friday. We talked about life and watched an episode of "This Is Us" which made us both cry. It's been far too long since we've been together in this way and I so appreciate these ever more rare occasions. Just because I understand how different and busy her life is now doesn't mean I don't miss her. Just as I miss her mom who is now studying to be a Nurse Practitioner which along with working full time and being a great mom takes up all her time. Yesterday was the first Sunday in a long time thst we didn't eat together.

Thank you for sharing your snow with me; I wish I could get some myself.

Ouch, I'm sorry to hear about that anxiety attack and glad that your daughter helped it with it.

I know what it's like to miss a grown child who now has a busy independent life, in my own unconventional paternal role. I guess it isn't very different with a grandchild. It's good that you are fully aware of "how different and busy her life is now" but I'm afraid that doesn't make it very much easier.

Though I have other grandchildren my relationship with Anah has always been different because until she was 5 she and her mom lived here.

Our snow is almost gone now. Hope you get some.
