A thank you note to my readers!


I want to say thank you to each of my readers for still coming to read my very infrequent letters, and for your patience and understanding when I don't get to visit your blogs as often as I used to. You all know the reasons: 


We take care of Hazel Nina each week Tuesday-Friday while Margaret works, and we see Campbell Walker as often as possible. I am full of letter ideas but simply do not have the time (and energy some days!) to post them. I think of each one of my blogging friends often and try to keep up with your lives, and I so appreciate you coming by here. Thank you!

  1. Completely understandable! And adorable! How wonderful to have the chance to look after Hazel Nina - your daughter must appreciate that immensely.

    I think of you as well, and am planning to put some daylilies in our new yard. I've got a corner in the backyard that my mom had a bit of a garden in I think, cause it's just weedy there now. I threw my rhubarb there, but I think daylilies will be perfect! Do I plant them in the spring or fall? Also, I tried the strawberry pancakes a few weeks ago and they were tasty. Also planning on the cornbread-blueberry pancakes soon.
    See, your influence if far-reaching! Enjoy your babies!

  2. Thank you so much! I wish I could come by with some of my daylilies for you. I think you could plant them anytime. Even now. Hardy little things! Thank you for your wonderful words! Who knows, maybe we'll come visit some year in the future! It's been a long time since we were there.

  3. Enjoy those beautiful grandchildren while you can, Nan. They soon grow up. We looked after our grandson two and sometimes three days a week until he was five and those years were precious to us. He's seven now and at school, a very lovely little boy, and it's nice to feel partly responsible for that. Enjoy and don't worry about blogging, it'll still be here when you have more time and energy.

  5. What sweet babies they are! It's wonderful that you can take care of Hazel Nina during the week. My parents did this for our son and it was a wonderful feeling knowing he was happy and safe in their home. They loved him dearly and he them. It was good all around -we were so fortunate. A gift for all.
    Enjoy these days.

  6. What beautiful little distractions you have, Nan... can't even imagine finding time for blogging under those circumstances. Enjoy your time with the grandchildren. I appreciate the periodic photos and updates!

  7. This post tickled me! Look at those adorable babies, and such good reasons to not blog as often - or visit blogs. I always love to stop by your place, however often you are able to post, and I thank you for your visits whenever you have the time or inclination. You have been a terrific blog-o-sphere pal... and namesake :-)

  8. You are most welcome. Miss you but do understand you have two very good reasons to skip blogging/reading/.

  9. Post when you can, we'll be here. Both are getting so big and as cute as ever.

    Both of our moms are home so no babysitting here (I still work anyways).

  10. Nan, totally understandable! I just had my grandkids for a month and didn't get to be online much at all or read for that matter! It's so wonderful that they are so close in age to grow up together.

  11. We all understand (many of us having been there ourselves; in my case an awfully long time ago -- just talked to our oldest grandson who is 30+ ... time flies! I'm glad you have time once in a while to post pictures of your little darlings. They grow so quickly. Enjoy all the time you can with them. Blogs will wait. The babies are adorable and that picture in the sidebar of proud grandmother with both of them is perfect.

  12. Nan, while I visit your blog I don't comment as often as I should. I like to see all the lovely pictures you post including those of your little grandchildren, a source of eternal joy to grandparents. It's a great feeling to be with one's kids when they're small. They grow up so fast. Personally, I put family above everything else and blogging would be the least of my priorities, so I understand how you feel about it. All the best, Nan.

  13. What a sweet post - and such sweet darlings. Enjoy them, Nan. I certainly understand. If mine were closer, I'd have them always here. So it goes.

    These two will become such good friends. My cousin, Ted, and are are 26 days apart and lived in the same house for four years then next door to each other. We are still good friends and are planning a Medicare part in December (we are also still silly). Enjoy.

  14. We do enjoy your snippets and photos, but it is far better to live life than to post about it.

  15. Oh Nan, you sure know how to make me smile!! What beautiful babies!
    As for me, don't worry about me, as long as I know you are happy- then I am happy. :-)

  16. I understand completely! I didn't get any reading or blogging in while our granddaughter was here for two weeks (and she's 12!). You are certainly busy, but in such a rewarding way. How wonderful for you and Tom to be able to take care of Miss Hazel Nina during the week. Such a bond you will have with both of those darling children. And, oh, how that little miss looks like her mama! We'll see you when we see you. Don't let this blog become a burden. We're all happy with the occasional photo. We're easy to please. :)

  17. I understand
    I smile
    and remember
    my babies and grandchildren
    when babies.
    This is the happiest of times...

  18. Perfectly understandable, Nan. Grandchildren trump blogging any time, any day of the week. :) Oh how I wish I could see my own grandchildren on a regular schedule but so far that hasn't been the case. Still, I cherish the time I do spend with them. A friend told me that 'grandchildren are our reward for living into old age.' I quite agree.

  19. I enjoy your posts Nan and like others have said, I appreciate whatever amount of time you have to devote to your blog. I have been reading them, even though I haven't commented in quite a while. I've enjoyed your ideas, reviews and pictures. On the flip side of this comment, how marvellous that your life is so busy and filled with family and little ones...it reminded me of a poem I think you posted a few months back about how the housework can wait...and just spend time with the children. Take care...
