RANDOM THIS THAT AND THE OTHER
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 [NIV]
Grandson Elijah on his way up the path to my house after his first day of third grade. He’s getting so BIG!
Granddaughter Shelby strikes a pose after her first day of eighth grade. She’s growing up way too fast, too! Daughter Holly ~ chauffeur extraordinaire.
Grandson Knox blowing bubbles out on the deck a few weeks ago. Serious fun.
My engineer hubby never ceases to amaze me with his ability to take this ……
….. and turn it into this [in a little less than two hours] …….
……. so I can do this. My orthopedic doc who did my knee surgery back in June said riding a bicycle would be perfect for building up those large upper leg muscles [which makes for stronger knees]. I don’t enjoy riding a bike, so now I can do the next best thing on our stationary bike. I can ride for miles and miles and go absolutely nowhere. I’ve been riding for several weeks now and can tell a big difference in my leg strength.

Daughter Kelly and grandson Knox checking out the stash of books in our neighborhood Little Free Library. Such a cool thing. Every neighborhood should have one.
What kind of bee is this? It looks like it’s wearing body armor.
Elijah and Shelby playing with Elijah’s big bouncy ball in the street as we went for a walk last Sunday after lunch.
Our hydrangea bushes are finally blooming. Seems late this year. So pretty.
Walking around the block as the sun sets ~ sometime last week. We try to walk often these days. Strengthens those leg muscles and all, you know. Neil got caught up in the rays of light.
This evening after supper, we ended up at Ralph’s. What a sweet way to end this random TGIF. Hope yours was happy.
