On the Rim

A quick "hello" to let you know I've not gone MIA.

Actually, I've been enjoying a week of domestic & grandmotherly bliss. Daughter Molly & granddaughter Rylie, along with Molly's boyfriend Tom, have been with us ten great days. My kitchen's gotten some intense usage, as have the chaise lounges adjacent to the pool.

Grandpa & I have whisked Miss Rylie away for a Grand Canyon experience. We made our way yesterday, traveling north out of Phoenix to Sedona. We then meandered along the Oak Creek River through the canyon by the same name into Flagstaff, where we nestled for the night.

May I say how impressed was Miss Rylie that Grandpa's an "elite" hotel guest, which means our room suite was free. Rylie even had her own bedroom. Perfect for an equally "elite" granddaughter!

Soon we'll head to breakfast; then onto the canyon's South Rim. It's an amazing site that never loses it's power to humble.

I'll be around to visit each of you next week when at last my routines are again routine. For now, my best & warmest to all.

A Happy Sassy Granny

I'm so glad you're having a wonderful visit with your family Kathleen. We are so blessed to have the Grand Canyon in our state. It is overwhelming and wondrous to sit overlooking the Canyon. God is such an awesome Creator, isn't He? Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon are beautiful too.

Enjoy your visit. These times come and go way too quickly. And btw, the job wasn't what I hoped so ...

Thanks for your prayers.

Love you,

Just a little something from Judy said...

In my heart I know how much you are enjoying your days with family. Wonder if Rylie knows how fortunate she is to have a grandma like you. Wishing you many more joy filled minutes.

You are missed!

What better way to spend the week other than with a daughter and granddaughter! You must be in Heaven already! Glad you had the time to spend with them.
