Murdo Girl…Taking some time out

It’s late…11:45 p.m. to be exact. I want to write a blog, but I don’t know if I should stay up any later. What do you think? I would have started earlier, but we went to a birthday dinner for our daughter, Heidi. It was an important birthday, too. A real big one. I don’t recall her age, but she looks great. She belongs to our two grown grandchildren, Mike and Nikki who belong to our three great grandchildren…Skyler, Ryan and Griffin, who was not present nor did he bring his parents tonight.

Our grandsons, Seamus and Hudson, brought their parents…our daughter, Heather, and her husband, Scott.

What could be better than dinner at a great Mexican restaurant, followed by Neapolitan cake, and fun with the grandkids?

Heidi is my hero.

“Yay,” Ryan says. “Here comes the cake. Mommy and Daddy, Nikki and Justin, look so cute!”

Happy Birthday, Heidi!! We love you!! 

“Every party’s got a pooper that’s what we invited you for….party pooper!”

“Goodnight, Brad”…”Skyler, you better take Papa home.”


It’s been so rainy and dreary and it doesn’t look like that is going to turn around in the near future. We needed rain. We now have enough. Not much can happen to further the tiny house project as long as it continues to rain, even though I have dubbed it the “Tiny Ark.”

I shouldn’t complain. I have plenty of things to keep me busy. I have never had a problem entertaining myself. I can always look at funny pictures.28056348_420115181775811_5608009109442485369_n

I could think about my favorite childhood memories. I still have some old pictures to sort through…



If your crown has become askew

Maybe you should think about what you do!

Until you learn to play fair…

You’ll spend some time in the TIME OUT CHAIR!

I remember the day well. I became angry when my cousin, Andrea came over to help Mom clean the basement. I wanted her to play with me, instead. I mistakenly hit her across the shins with my baton. It didn’t end well for little MG.


Well, enough reminiscing. It’s time for me to hightail it to bed. I have to get up early tomorrow and walk the dogs in the rain. They’re going to hate it.

        So sorry. I’d bring you hot soup if I could.
