It's been years since I wrote anything as short as 300 words, but the exercise was a lot of fun. Even if you aren't an experienced writer, put on your thinking cap. Drop over to Tracy's and join in the fun. The prize is a copy of Miralee Ferrell's book, Love Finds You in Last Chance California.
If you enjoy reading a good book, here's your chance to win one. The contest will be judged by Miralee Ferrell, the author of the book.
In other news, Jack and Melissa dropped by on Sunday to visit for a spell. Griffyn is such a delight at just over 18 months. I gave him a package of crayons and asked him to draw me a picture. He sat on the floor for over half an hour and scribbled on a piece of blank paper, making his own creative designs. When he tired of that, I got out the Duplo Le*go that belonged to Brandon and Jordan when they were small. He loved these colorful blocks. I had two pails of them and told him that he could take them home. You would have thought I'd given him a million dollars. He wouldn't let his Dad have them and carried them by the handle.
When they were getting ready to leave, he wandered into our bedroom and for some reason touched the light. It is a touch lamp and it came on. Then it was a game. He was excited when he was able to turn the lamp on and off and chortled with delight. What a charmer he is. I love him to pieces.
Tarryn and I had a cuddle. He was fretting and Melissa said he needed his soother, which was in the car. I told her he didn't need it, took him from her and sat in the rocking chair. We rocked back and forth and he could see our reflection in the glass of the china cabinet. He was good as gold for a long time and I enjoyed rocking with him.
Both boys gave me kisses while they were here and before they left, Griffyn gave me a "bear hug." He can give a real good one too.
Talk about making my day. The visit from the entire family was great, but kisses and hugs from little ones were wonderful. ~Blessings, Mary~
