Nana Diana Takes A Break

Happy Labor Day!

Just popping in to tell you I am still
above ground
and to wish you and your families 
A
I have the grandgirls here.
Tomorrow they start school
and I am left wondering 
WHERE DID SUMMER GO?

I will be back to blogging regularly 
in a few days....
pinky promise.

I just need to catch up on all the things
I DIDN'T get done on my
"Summer Vacation".

Thank you to all of you ~


that stuck with me-
and wrote to me-
and cheered me on-
and sighed and/or cried with me.
It has been quite a summer!

See you shortly..
well, I am NOT short...
but you know what I mean!

And here, of course, is what
MyHero is doing for 
Labor Day!
Pulling what hair he has left
OUT 
because I MIGHT have asked
him to do me one little favor....
or maybe it was two...
or it might have been three...

I say..
Labor Day means
YOU WORK
and I rest-
for a change
Amen!

  17. Dianna, I won't even start to tell you of some of my experiences(ordeals) with a "helping" husband. I am trying to get caught up with my blogging friends but arthritis in my hands is a real bummer. I know I have missed way too many interesting and beautiful posts. Your porch is beautiful and inviting and your beautiful granddaughter has the same problem as all three of my grand girls right now. They are all losing teeth in different stages. The middle one looks and sounds so funny because she has lost most of her upper and lower front teeth and one of the top ones has almost grown back in. Time flies by and they are no longer our babies!

    Yours, Roxy

  33. Well, its about time you got off your butt, or got on your butt and blogged. You have been so slacking here! I can't believe you have been gone for so long. Good thing we talk every day or I might have to sue for partial custody of those grands... but you can keep the old man with no hair. Got one of those already and sure don't need another one.

  75. So nice to see that you survived the summer, Diana - hope it was relaxing and restful with not too many mosquito bites. My Mr. is losing his hair, too and I'm sure it is because of that long honey-do list I keep throwing in his face that he keeps ignoring...... Hope the grands 1st day went well. Glad you are back. xo Karen
