CSI - 44

Whoops, I set this up to post on Saturday, but for some reason it's still sitting here.  Uh Oh.....learner Blogger!

Lovely bright colours this week at CSI.   Perfect for a boy's page of DGS and DH reading together.  Why not pop over and play; everyone is very friendly. You have until the 11th to join in.

Doily pattern

I chose to journal about something I love in my home and that is the relationship between our Grandson and his beloved Pa. I included the word "sunny" and wrote it as a bit of a fan letter to both of them.


Here you are, the day before your fifth birthday, being read to by Pa. I love to see you two delighting in each other’s company.  You are alike in many ways; you both like routine and are averse to change. I admire your thirst for knowledge and the way you ask “Why” and “What does that mean” a hundred times a day. Your Grandfather has infinite patience with your incessant questions; he never minds explaining the way things work. I love the way you retain the information you’re given and use it in the correct context sometime later. I look forward to our Granny & Pa days, when you are eager to come and spend time with us.  I respect the way you’ve worked hard to accept and love your twin brothers.   Your wicked sense of humour and honesty make me laugh out loud.  You are like a breath of fresh air in my life; I am refreshed and renewed by your curiosity & joie de vivre.   Love Granny 18 Oct 2012

  1. Love the stenciling with texture paste in yellow. Your journaling is touching as always, Helen. You have captured the essence of this beautiful relationship so well!
