Just had a phone call from Elliana. She said:
"Hello, Nanni. I defenly, defenly don't like flowers."
('defenly' is Ellie's word for 'definitely')
Her mother then explained what it was all about...
You see, Ellie had been picking too many dwarf snapdragon flowers, and her mother had told her to stop. Because the flowers had caused her to get into trouble, Ellie had decided that she no longer liked them. (So cute)
These are not the snapdragons in question, but thistle weeds...which she also likes to pick.
My hands might only be small, and not too elegant...but God made them creative. Hence, I will never have spare room in my house, due to all manner of craft items that have caught my attention. I find immense delight by being creative. I also love to draw. I just love creating. Having discovered etsy, I can create to my hearts content. My daughter, Jillian, prompted me to join with her in an Etsy store, and the two of us have been as happy as 'pigs in mud'! She is my kindred spirit...the woman I had asked God for when I was a young woman. I had waited so long, and wondered if He was ever going to answer my prayer when, one day, I turned around and found myself looking into her face....I just had to wait for my daughter to grow up! The other joy and delight that ranks high in my life, is our little granddaughter, Amazing elliana Grace. I could not have dreamed for a more enchanting grandchild. She always brings a smile to my face, and warmth to my heart.
a cup of tea made in a pot with loose tealeaves and a simple ham sandwich with real butter and freshly baked bread and freshly sliced ham. These two items always remind me of my sweet childhood days spent at nanna's house
miss you nanna
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
