    Looking forward to it all.

    • Me too! I’ve loved preparing…making a list and checking it twice…making sure my social media is talking to each other…being sure Pinterest is inviting. LOVE being on board for the second time, so much wiser this time. And look what happened the first time around….YOU!

    Stepheny, BRING IT! I’ll be reading voraciously! Love Barb P.S. Made miniature bookplates for 50 third graders that I spoke to last week about miniature books. Bookplates were a huge success!

    I just planted my flower boxes and it’s almost time to move on to the beds, so I’m looking forward to all the gardening inspiration that I can get 🙂

    I am so happy I talked myself into not dropping out of the #atoZchallenge and there isn’t one I will be missing again for some more time to come. I am having such fun, getting to meet so many people and learn so much. The most thrilling for me is to meet so many ‘of my mamas’ like you and feel so at ease. Coming from Africa where tech isn’t a given, ‘mamas’ don’t blog and all, I am thrilled.

    • Maybe you can tell the ‘mamas’ there that you have a friend in the States that is a grandmother of 12 that refuses to be left behind when it comes to technology. The learning curve is steep, but well worth it. A granddaughter (Kelsey) helped me start with a free download from wordpress where I could blog. I’m glad not to have missed the experience and blogging friends like you. Come back when you have time.
